Neighborhood favorite Locol has a new owner and new attitude

Cocktails and more are coming in the new year

By Patrick Robinson

When Locol at 7902 35th SW opened in January of 2011 in a former tanning salon location, it was in an area near Kenyon Street that was without any restaurants or bars. It quickly became a neighborhood favorite and beyond, serving gourmet small plates, premium wines, and range of beers on draft few could match. It was quiet, unassuming, and the staff made people feel welcome and seen.

Kyle Duce and his associates built a gem of a spot, that was rightly seen as an oasis.

Over the last decade it saw a lot of changes, the addition of a covered outdoor patio, and many people passing through, still largely remaining true to its original ideal.
