Cool, Classy, and ComfortableCraft Beer, Wine, Sake, Specialty sodas, and Delicious Food create this jewel of a "neighborhood bar".If only just a few words could describe this seemingly nondescript place. Situated directly across from Kilwin's Ice Cream, you will notice patio seating laid out in front of a plain building site, but there is nothing plain about the atmosphere created by the owner, Dennis.Walking into Bar Local (pouring since 1999) (lol), you will immediately feel relaxed and want to stay awhile. The dim house lights, punctuated with candle light, the exposed brick walls, bar and booth seating with concrete tables all make for a sophisticated and comfortable place to spend time with friends or even bring a date. Dennis is amicable and offers good suggestions for drinks. If he's not there Keith, Adam, and beautiful Alexa will take care of you.You wouldn't expect it, but this little place redefines "bar food" by putting out some delicious plates of non-typical fare like jerk chicken tacos, turkey Cuban sandwiches, stuffed poblano peppers, roasted red pepper hummus, panini sandwiches, pasta, salads, and cheese plates. Vegans and vegetarians and meat lovers will all find something to eat here.There is always a local artist playing to round out your evening. With a painting class on Tuesdays, Yoga and Open Mic on Thursdays, there's a reason Bar Local was voted best bar in Wilmington this year.Support this amazing local hub. It's a great place to feel at home and enjoy something a little different than just a bar. Check out their FB page for their menu, times, food specials, and other good stuff.
