The Local Tavern
The Local Tavern (formerly Lansdowne Road Irish Tavern) is a go-to for live sports, cold beer and tasty pub fare. Traditional ‘pub grub’ is given a contemporary lift here, with a crowd-pleasing menu that covers bar snacks, share plates, steaks, burgers and hearty mains. Fried-chicken fiends should prioritise The Local’s signature buckets of fried wings with chilli-barbecue sauce – or, if you bring your appetite, there’s a giant 1-kg bucket of Southern-style fried chicken to tackle. There’s also beer-friendly snacks like loaded fries, cheeseburger spring rolls and wagyu brisket croquettes, as well as mains like burgers, steaks, tacos, parmigianas, salads and more. Behind the bar you’ll find plenty of Australian and international beers on tap, plus wines, spirits and a collection of cocktails – and, like any good neighbourhood watering hole, there’s a daily happy hour.
