Local 16 was first known for its expansive roof deck which was unrivaled for many years.

After 14 years, Local 16 maintains its reign in the local restaurant and bar scene as a neighborhood place that offers a fantastic happy hour.

Our menu now features some of Afghanistan's most popular dishes inspired by Aman's mother Benazhir and cooked by Aman himself.

Please take a look through our menus and join us for a drink and meal.


Local 16 has a variety of private or shared rooms available for events!


Our covered & heated DECK has a capacity of up to 200 guests. We can partially reserve for smaller parties.
