LOCALS ONLY CLUB REVIEW

Upon entry of Locals Only from the street, the very first thing you’ll notice is the trippy hallway with a bright white neon sign and stairs leading down to the venue itself. We have to hand it to the designers of the pub, the eclectic art that is painted onto the walls is pretty cool. Once inside you can basically see all there is to see of the venue in one shot considering it’s super small. Having gone to this venue many times, we consider it really solid pre-drink spot if you’ve just finished up dinner and you’re looking to kill time before hitting another club or bar in the area. While it’s a decent venue and the crowd is generally very friendly and welcoming, we aren’t a fan of staying the entire night unless we’ve brought a whole group of friends that are also keen on staying. Overall we like the vibe, and this is a pretty solid bar with a great location on King West so it’s definitely worth checking out, however if you’re looking for a bar or club that is large and has some variety this place falls short. With that said, we have to hand it to Locals Only for always being pretty lit. It’s extremely rare to see this spot dead on a Friday or Saturday night out on King West.

PROS

∙ Great early night pre-drink spot
∙ Cozy vibe and friendly crowd

CONS

∙ This venue is too small, which can pose a problem for bigger groups
∙ Can get stale if you intend to spend your whole night here

INSIDER TIPS

∙ Get there early before it reaches capacity
∙ Have a backup plan in case you can’t get in
