The Local Market & Bar
The Local Market & Bar in downtown Salt Lake City opened in late February 2023. The 125 seat, 7,500 square foot foot hall will offer seven culinary concepts and a bar. The concept will be the anchor of Avia at The Exchange. You can find the menu for the eight launch vendors on our sister site SLC Menu here.
Award-winning chef, restaurateur, TV personality and cookbook author Akhtar Nawab willed up the culinary operation. Via press release Chef Nawab describes The Local as
“a place for guests and chefs to be imaginative and curious. The life of the party is always in the kitchen. It’s a comfortable place where everyone is free to be themselves. With a mix of local chefs and restaurateurs, The Local Market and Bar will cater to a wide variety of clientele, from those seeking a night out for dinner and drinks with friends, to the work-by-day guest gathering for a lunch meeting. At The Local, our guests will find a wide range of offerings speaking to the local Salt Lake City heritage, as well as the destination guest.”
Launch businesses for the The Local include:
- Lamb & Feta
- Hog & Tradition BBQ
- Green Chile House
- Luna Pizza Cafe
- The Cereal Killerz Kitchen
- Pop’s Burger
- Good Bar
