The Local Eatery and Drinking Hole opened its doors in 2003, as a family owned and operated restaurant and bar. Mina Desiderio saw an opportunity to carve out a niche in the Financial District of Downtown San Diego. The philosophy was simple: Bring the beach and all things that define San Diego to downtown. The vision was to be an establishment that supported local sports teams, local cuisine, local beers, local music and local events, hence the name, The Local.

The vision of California coastal grinds paired with San Diego’s favorite craft brews didn’t fit under one roof – Rather than compromise our vision, we decided to expand! Our mission at The Local Downtown is to satisfy your cravings while exceeding your expectations. Over 14 years in the making, The Local Downtown has a story best told through the experiences we offer. “Drink Local!”
