Locals, 640 Harden Street: early December 2011   1 comment

Posted at 2:33 am in Uncategorized

I wasn't sure when I took these pix that Locals on Harden Street next to Sharky's was actually closed, but driving by this evening (15 December) confirmed that the place is dark, and that the windows are now covered over.

I am way older than the college bar demo, and really never hit them when I was in it anyway, so I never went to Locals. It does look like the rooftop area would be a nice place to hang out and people watch over Five Points..

The web site is still up, though the latest photos seem to be from September 2010.

Deserves a bigger crowd than it gets.

which may be some indication of what happened.

UPDATE 3 March 2012 -- Now open again as Pinch. Some of the flatbread pizzas on the menu look pretty good:

  1. Locals was a great establishment! The place was really rolling in the early 2000's. Great owners, beautiful bartenders and a great crowd! It was standing room only on the weekends with flying napkins and libations galore! Dancing on the bar and "Home of the Big Slice"! Great memories! From college students and young professionals to athletes and stars, (Dale Earnhardt Jr.) you never knew who you might run into. One thing for sure, you would always find a local! I still occasionally see Dave and I miss Wayne. There were so many friendships and memories made. There have been talks of a reunion. We should make it happen!
