The Canton Local opens just as it seemed Baltimore was losing its Irish spirit

Baltimore business journal

The Canton Local has all the markers of a classic Irish pub: flags celebrating Ireland out front, traditional fare like shepherd's pie and fish and chips on the menu, and a bar stocked with Guinness beer and Jameson whiskey. The front door is painted in orange and green.

Serving a Modern Twist on Irish-inspired Comfort Food

The Canton Local, located on Decker Avenue, joined a collection of restaurants, bars and retail shops in the heart of the neighborhood in December 2020. Now less than six months into its opening, the establishment has already started to set itself apart—and not just because of the eye-catching orange and green paint on the door.
