We're slightly less than three weeks away from St. Patrick's Day, and though current plans have not changed since our update from a week ago we'll post more new info as it becomes available. For now, we are pleased to announce that two of our long-time (as in since we opened) Irish musicians will be playing at the Pub on Saturday March 13th. Morgan Fingleton will on our main level stage early through mid-afternoon, then Gareth Woods takes over at 8 PM. Welcome back!

By popular demand our kitchen hours have been extended Friday & Saturday evenings until 10:00 PM. No "late night" food menus (yet) but the extra time will be beneficial to our later evening diners.

St. Patrick’s Day is exactly one month away as of today! As any true Irish Pub we plan for a festive occasion, however the continuing reality of the current virus situation greatly limits the ability to “go big” with a huge party. The annual Barrington Celtic Fest that was shut down last year also won’t be happening in 2021. Though this is truly unfortunate it’s also necessary at this time. We will continue to monitor the changing conditions over the next few weeks and adjust accordingly, so please check back for updates on our schedules and protocols (both here and on our Facebook page). Hopefully as the world starts returning to a safe normal we’ll have plenty of reasons to celebrate!

Laissez les bons temps rouler! Mardi Gras Fat Tuesday just won't be the same this year without the parties and parades, but you can still celebrate at the Pub... we have our full food menus, discounting most of our brews and also offer our famous HAPPY HOUR from 3 PM - 6 PM.
February 11, 2021

If you have been holding off on having a private event, it may finally be time to start planning again! There are of course many capacity & operational restrictions still in place, but the Pub can still accommodate small gatherings responsibly and safely.

Effective TODAY restaurants in Chicago and Cook County are now OPEN for business!

There's no need to elaborate... it's certainly been one of the strangest and toughest years imaginable and I'm pretty certain everyone is thrilled to leave 2020 in the past. This is just a quick, brief message to say HAPPY NEW YEAR and we look forward to serving you during the much better times ahead!
One more quick reminder - the Pub closes today at 6:00 PM but will be open fur full service on New Years Day 11 AM - 11 PM. Thank you for your understanding.
December 28, 2020
Traditionally every year the Pub has a New Years Eve party that's open for all patrons and we've been receiving many inquiries regarding our status for this coming Thursday. Being these are unusual times and the ridiculous "indoor dining closure mandates" are still in effect, there seems no need to jeopardize the safety of individuals for a public gathering even if the turnout was very low. Therefore, the Pub has made the decision to forgo this years party; we will close to the public for the evening on December 31st at 6:00 PM. Note that we will resume regular full service business 11 AM - 11 PM on Friday January 1st.
We wish all our staff, patrons and families a very a festive and safe New Years Eve... and the best news to report is that we can finally be rid of 2020!
December 25, 2020
On behalf of all the Pub staff we want to wish you and yours a very Merry (and safe) Christmas. As a reminder, we are open today at 5:00 PM for full bar service, but our kitchen will be closed. Regular hours (11 AM - 11 PM) resume on Saturday December 26th.
December 17, 2020
As is our tradition, the Pub will be open for full service on Christmas Eve, Thursday December 24th (kitchen closes at 9 PM). We're here for you! Also, on Christmas Day most of our staff has the day off but we will open at 5 PM for full bar service.
December 15, 2020
New promotion for all you Stella fans - with the purchase of a Stella Artois draft or a Stella Cidre bottle, you get a free Stella chalice! Offer is good while supplies last, and limit is one per person per day.
