The Local was started in 2008 to provide a venue to showcase the abundant supply of small farmers, artisan cheesemakers, breweries, distilleries and award-winning vineyards located in Charlottesville and the surrounding area. Charlottesville has a wide variety of agriculture readily accessible and a community population willing to support it. Continuing with the hometown theme, much of the restaurant’s interior was designed and built by local artisans. 

Full catering services for both onsite and off-site events, specializing in weddings, rehearsal dinners, private parties, and corporate events are also available.
