This cozy eatery and entertainment venue is a busy little hub with a community vibe. It’s a place to get social, make new friends and spread some positive energy. The owners, Dennis Mancinelli and Dustin Anderson, enjoy sharing the positive energy with locals and businesses.
Their positive energy is reflected in their customer service and “can do” attitude. In just four years on Market Street in Downtown Wilmington, they have developed a loyal following both for the food and the entertainment. Bar Local Pub and Pizzeria has lots of great reviews online with many people raving about the pizza.
Dennis is the chef behind the culinary creations and says the secret is in the dough, the sauce…and the cheese! Humor aside, he not only makes the dough and the sauce from scratch, the cheese is also homemade! Besides pizza, he gets a lot of requests for his delicious pork belly sliders.
The menu is primarily Italian with a Spanish and Caribbean twist. In keeping with modern food trends, Bar Local also has vegetarian and vegan options. The vegan-Korean BBQ wrap is especially popular.
Having live music and outside seating is a big draw with locals and visitors alike. On a warm evening, you can grab a pizza and a drink, sit outside and enjoy the views of the river while listening to a local musician. Bar Local has a good selection of wine, liquor and local beer and the range of drinks is growing. Dennis aims to have mostly North Carolina beers on tap.
For those who want more, Bar Local extends the social element further with local painting nights where a visiting artist will help you create your own masterpiece. And, if you want to experience a bit more Xen, you can also try Vino and Vinyasa on the riverfront. What a great way to unwind!
Hours: 4:00 p.m. – 2:00 a.m. Bar Local will soon be open for lunches.
