Created by locals, for locals, the Local is a Henderson wine bar meant to provide “the ultimate wine experience” to the community. Since opening in the summer of 2019, our friendly staff has been sharing their love of great food and world-class wine at our Henderson restaurant. We believe that great wine is for everyone, from the master sommelier to the total novice. There’s no judgment here — just helpful knowledge and guidance through our extensive wine menu.
The Local is the second restaurant concept from Las Vegas hospitality duo Chris Connors and Li Hsun Sun. This time, they teamed up with real estate agent Randy Maher and designer Amy Maher to create the top Henderson restaurant for outstanding drinks and light fare.
Located in an intimate, airy space in The District at Green Valley Ranch, The Local proves that you don’t have to go to the Las Vegas Strip for an excellent glass of wine. We stayed close to home and created the perfect place to share a bottle of wine and the company of friends after work or on a warm Saturday afternoon.
But that doesn’t mean we didn’t bring a bit of the Strip to our Henderson restaurant. We paid attention to every detail…like our custom wine buckets. We repurposed old light canisters from the world-famous Bellagio Fountain. They’ve been cleaned up and powder coated to keep your wine cool.
It’s this attention to detail that makes The Local the best restaurant in Henderson!
Wine, Beer, And Cocktails
The wine list at The Local has been carefully curated to bring you over 60 different new world and old world wines. Our selections include sparkling wines and champagnes, whites and rosés, red wines, and dessert wines.
Some of our options will be familiar, like pinot noir, merlot, and chardonnay. But there are also wines in our cellar that may be new to the average wine drinker. Varietals like Albariño, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and Barbera may not be household names, and that’s why we want to bring them to you in our Henderson wine bar. Our helpful team of wine experts (including our certified sommelier) will walk you through the wine list to find the perfect vino to suit your palate.
If you can’t settle on just one, we also offer a series of wine flights. You can sample flights of New World wines from California, Argentina, and New Zealand. Or try a flight of Old World wines from Italy, France, and Spain. We also have a flight of staff selections if you want to put yourself entirely in our hands!
We’ve worked hard to bring you the best wine bar in Henderson, but that doesn’t mean our offerings are limited to wine. We also have draft beer for those days when a glass of wine just won’t hit the spot.
We love to feature local Las Vegas breweries like Banger Brewing, Big Dog’s Brewing Company, and Bad Beat Brewing. We also bring in some of the best beers from national breweries. Brooklyn Brewery, Sierra Nevada, and Victory are a few of our favorites! Our draft selection changes frequently, so give us a call to find out what’s on tap today.
And finally, there’s our cocktail menu. The cocktails at The Local are mostly updated versions of the classics — with a few modern additions for good measure.
The Butterfly Gin & Tonic, for example, is not your grandma’s G&T. Vibrant purple Empress 1908 gin is made from a unique blend of 8 different botanicals, giving it a flavor like none other. It’s mixed with Fever Tree Tonic from London — the absolute best tonic we could find. And to top it off, it’s garnished with a dash of lemon zest and a real flower. The resulting drink is a violet-hued beauty — and it tastes as good as it looks.
Then there’s our White Peach Cosmo. Instead of astringent cranberry, we add delicate white peach for a light and refreshing cocktail in the perfect shade of soft pink, garnished with a peach ring.
If you don’t like sweet drinks, we have classics like our District Dirty Martini with blue cheese stuffed olives, Sidecar, Old Fashioned, and our Sazerac (with brûléed rim!).
And for those who prefer to sip spirits on the rocks, we have a high-end selection of liquors like Eagle Rare 10 year whiskey, Lagavulin 16 year scotch, and Del Maguey Chichicapa mezcal!
Happy hour at the local starts when we open and lasts until 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday. We offer $6 glasses of house wine, $5 draft beers, and $8 District Dry Martinis. It’s the perfect way to spend an afternoon at the best wine bar in Henderson! Plus, get 25% off all bottles of wine on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 5:00 PM to close.
Snacks And Sandwiches
We’re not just a wine bar — we’re also a Top Henderson restaurant! We serve a menu of light fare, perfect for snacking while you enjoy a glass of wine or cocktail.
We offer three different kinds of bruschetta, from savory to sweet. Our smashed avocado and roasted tomato bruschetta puts a twist on the infamous avocado toast. The goat cheese and roasted bell pepper bruschetta offers a salty counterpart to a crisp wine. And our fig jam bruschetta features sweet fruit mixed with creamy brie cheese.
We also serve a selection of grilled panini sandwiches. Our paninis are a more substantial meal, with premium ingredients like artichoke hearts, roasted tomatoes, fresh herbs, brie, and feta cheese. Each sandwich is named for one of our favorite places in the world, like Havana, Sonoma, and Capri.
Our Mediterranean panini is full of turkey, tangy artichoke hearts, salty feta, and roasted tomato aioli. And our Napa panini brings you the fresh flavors of California with chicken breast, spinach, basil pesto, and roasted tomatoes.
If you’re looking for snacks to share, look no further than our Boards. They say there’s no better pairing than cheese and wine, so our boards offer a superior selection of cheeses, meat, veggies, hummus and feta dip, fresh and dried fruit, crackers, and pretzels. Have a nibble at the best restaurant in Henderson while enjoying a bottle of wine with friends. And for vegetarians, we have a veggie board with no meat.
Each board is a work of art, just waiting to be enjoyed. We believe that great food shouldn’t just be delicious — it should be beautiful.
If you just want a little nibble while you sip your wine, we also offer mixed nuts, chocolate pretzels, pub mix, and spicy wasabi peas for a little crunch.
And of course, we haven’t forgotten dessert. Vanilla gelato topped with sherry and golden raisins is the perfect end to your meal.
If you want to take The Local with you, just send us an email at email@example.com. We provide off-site catering for holiday parties, office lunches, and more. We’d love to talk about what you need for your event!
Our menu selections are made with care every day, making The Local the best restaurant in Henderson!

Visit Our Henderson Restaurant
At just 1,000 square feet, The Local is an intimate space. We kept it light and airy — no dark wine caves here! Instead, the interior is modern and clean, meant to evoke the feeling of a bright day in wine country from right here in our Henderson wine bar.
The front window of The Local is a functioning garage door that can be opened in nice weather, creating a seamless indoor/outdoor flow. Located on tree-lined Village Walk Drive, it’s perfect for people watching from this top Henderson restaurant.
The focal point of the space is, unsurprisingly, the bar. Geometric black and white tiles bring modernity to a space dedicated to updated classic cocktails and old world wines in a new world setting. A white marble bar top caps off the tiles, with wine bottles on the back bar stacked in orderly rows.
Everything is simple at The Local, from the decor to the menu. We want this to be a place where you can kick back and relax. We hope you’ll visit the best wine bar in Henderson for date night, catching up with friends, a celebration, or just for a rest during your day of shopping in The District. Wine not?
