The Local Pub and Teahouse

Located in the historic Dublin Neighborhood of Saratoga Springs’ west side on the corner of Beekman Street and Grand Avenue, The Local Pub and Teahouse is a neighborhood bar/restaurant serving traditional English and Irish specialties with a unique selection of craft beers and organic teas from around the world.

Known regionally as the best Fish and Chips you can find, The Local features a variety of food options; ranging from “poutine” fries, chicken wings, Bangers and Mash, and Shepard’s Pie to a wide variety of healthy tea sandwiches and a large selection of fresh salads which one customer referred to as the “best cobb salad in Saratoga Springs”. Most food options range from $6 to $10 with a daily dinner special ranging from $11-$15. This is truly home style cooking at an affordable price tag.

If you are truly “a local”, make sure to sign up to become a “Mug Club Member” to take advantage of weekly beer specials and their annual “Mug Club Party”.

Principessa Elena Society

“Organized by a group of Italian-American men to assist Italian families who immigrated to Saratoga Springs, the club was named after Elena, who was a beautiful Italian princess in the old country. The Principessa Elena Society was founded January 4, 1900 and the founding organizing principle was to benefit their members based on fraternity, liberty, and equality and to promote the moral and collective welfare of its members.” – “Dublin Revisted” by Lee Signor

Today, the Society along with the Women’s Auxiliary supports community activities with donations of money each year for 4 scholarships awarded to Saratoga High and Saratoga Central Catholic scholars. They also contribute to west side youth activities and prepare Friday night dinners open to the public a couple times per month.
