Welcome to LOCAL. The new kids on the block. Opened just recently, this place has already received a significant mass of hype. And here is why, let me break it down for you. This urban street café and barbershop (yes, I said barbershop) offers a modern design with an industrial twist giving you a Scandinavian style to sit, sip, and chill at.
The aesthetics in this place gives you a refreshing and authentic experience that goes hand in hand with their delectable coffee. For all you lads, there is an exclusive barbershop tucked away in the back, offering a unique grooming experience. It doesn’t stop there, it shortly will become a sneaker and streetwear store for men and women… so am I saying you can grab specialty coffee, get a haircut, and shop all in one place? Yup. But here’s the more important question, is this place insta-worthy? Absolutely. Besides the fetching latte art, and aesthetically appealing setting, the coffee cups and logo for this place instantly captivates you to take that IG photo. Check them out and thank me later.
