Announcing an official opening date of July 1, The Local will slot into 1,000-square-foot space on Village Walk Drive, between Bath & Body Works and Chico’s and a short distance from co-owners Chris Connors and Li Hsun Sun’s three-year old success story, Me Gusta Tacos.
Also backed by local real-estate agent Randy Maher and his wife Amy Maher, The Local’s mission is to fill “a void in the Las Vegas/Henderson market of a simple wine bar with delicious food, great energy and a homey atmosphere.”
Planned to serve from lunch until evening, the wine bar will feature a weekday happy hour, wine tastings, plus a menu of salads, bruschetta dishes, paninis, and a collection of charcuterie boards, including the namesake “Local” offering three meats, cheeses, vegetables and dipping sauces. A Sunday-only brunch choice is also in the works.
Among the the cocktails, a white peach cosmopolitan, the lounge’s spin on an old Fashioned, and the retails hub’s own “District Dirty,” created with Tahoe Blue Vodka, olive brine, and a blue cheese olive.
