LOCAL Public Eatery is opening a second Calgary location near the Bow River

Aug 12 2021, 2:30 pm

LOCAL Public Eatery has announced that it will soon be opening a new location, bringing more of the fun, modern vibes it’s known for to the heart of Calgary.

The popular restaurant has locations across Canada (plus one in Seattle!), making its home in Vancouver, Edmonton, Medicine Hat, Winnipeg, Toronto, and Ottawa, in addition to its Stephen Ave spot in Calgary.

LOCAL Public Eatery’s second YYC location will be located in Eau Claire, at the end of Barclay Parade and in close proximity to the Bow River.

The establishment will be taking over the former home of The Barley Mill, which resided at the 201 Barclay Parade SW address for 26 years before shutting down at the end of 2020.

LOCAL Public Eatery – Barclay promises a brand new look and feel, with the same food, drinks, service, and fun that patrons know and love.⁣⁣

The new location’s menu will feature a wide array of revolving local craft beer, wine, and hand-crafted cocktails, such as the Gin Refresher, Barclay Sour, and LOCAL’s signature line of Crush Cocktails (cool concoctions poured over crushed ice? Yes please!) Guests at LOCAL Public Eatery – Barclay can expect both seasonal bevvies and year-round classics.

Diners will find the restaurant’s famous LOCAL Burger, made with hand-pressed beef patties and signature sauce, at the location, along with the Steak and Fries dish, complete with house-made Dijon peppercorn sauce, Mexican Fish Tacos, and other favourites.

As well, exclusive to this location is a new BBQ Rice Bowl, serving up bold Korean barbecue flavours out of the Eau Claire spot.

“We could not be more excited to bring our favourite dishes and more,” said Oliver Lewis, Head Chef, LOCAL Public Eatery, in a press release. “Visitors can expect quality, consistency and a wide variety from our Fish Tacos and Fried Chicken Ramen, to newer dishes like the Enchiladas.”

Eatery – Barclay is set to become a go-to for happy hour drinks, a casual lunch, dinner with friends, late nights, catching the game, and weekend brunching.

“We can’t wait to meet everyone and (re)introduce ourselves,” LOCAL said in an Instagram post.

In the meantime, Calgary restaurant-goers can continue to visit the Stephen Ave location at 310 8th Avenue SW.
