Best Local Bar That's Not a Union Headquarters

Local 616

Staff Pick

No, this place has nothing to do with organized labor (as far as we know), but the name is fitting. For one thing, 616 is the bar's address on Meeting Street, and for another, the place has a decidedly no-fuss, working-class vibe — not unlike an actual union hall. Situated just north of the downtown development boom's hazy boundary, Local 616 is a perfect getaway from the lines-out-the-door, $16-cocktail reinvention of Upper King. If you remember proprietor Dwayne Mitchell from when he previously worked at the Upper Deck Tavern, you know it's going to be a laid-back good time.
