The Local Drive is Longmont’s premier craft cocktail bar, indoor golf lounge and unique event venue. This winter, instead of stashing away those clubs, consider checking out downtown Longmont’s most entertaining spot for a night out sipping and swinging! We are an indoor golf facility with a focus, or even emphasis, on our craft cocktails selection. Each of our classic and signature craft cocktails are hand-curated by one of our in-house mixologists. 

Golf and Lounge in Comfort

The Longmont location has three state-of-the-art Trackman simulators with access to over 300 courses including all the greats of the PGA Tour and golf games for all skill levels. This location is a very spacious venue with plenty of seating and also offers a charming outdoor patio area. This is the perfect setting to enjoy craft cocktails, fresh air, and socialize while taking in the views. 

Our patio is the perfect place for happy hour with friends and coworkers, so stop by to soak up the sun on warm days. Each golf bay has a high top table with stools and a couple of comfortable “whiskey” chairs with a small table to boot. Come for the golf and stay for the experience!

Private Events

Hosting a private event soon? Our interior space here of 4,400 sqft provides ample room for private, corporate or unique events. This flexible private party and unique event venue can accommodate anywhere from seven of your best buddies to 100+ of your company’s employees. Additionally, our patio can be reserved for private golf and lounge events as well.

Should your event require audio and video, we provide top-notch audio-visual equipment for presentations, speeches, or simply enhancing the ambiance with music and visual displays. Guests of your event will be able to enjoy a variety of virtual courses, compete in friendly tournaments, and improve their swing, all in a comfortable and climate-controlled environment. 

We Host Events With Partners

The Local Drive hosts a variety of events throughout the year. From mini-golf bar crawls to whiskey tastings to wedge clinics and club fittings, there’s usually something fun happening here! Currently we are partnered with Great Divide Brewing with the Beat The Yeti Challenge. Come rent yourself a bay and take a swing at this challenge for a chance to win prizes from Great Divide Brewing!
