Local 46 is a few minutes from the more popular part of Tennyson St., but it’s worth the trip, and a great way to avoid the crowds in that area. It’s a laid-back beer drinking type of place, so bring your low-key friends for a big group hang. The wide-open patio out back has a ton of seating, ping pong, and an outdoor food hut that occasionally serves burgers and excellent sausage plates (usually weekends and evenings). And if you’re here in the summer, there’s a good chance you’ll see some live music.
