Lent-friendly weekend fish specials are plentiful on our menu this weekend, plus our delicious Pub thin crust pizzas are discounted and we have even mroe specials set for Sunday's Manchester United match vs. Chelsea! Check out the right side of this page for details.


February 25, 2021

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! 


February 19, 2021

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.


February 17, 2021

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!


February 16, 2021

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

Valentine's Day weekend is almost upon us, and though the Pub may not offer the most romantic setting in the area keep in mind that we are open 11 AM - 11 PM every day for full business. No reservations required, bring your significant other, friends and/or family by anytime for a great time!  Check back with us on some of the weekend specials; they will be posted here and on our Facebook page.


February 5, 2021

We have a fun sports weekend happening - Saturday is Manchester United vs. Everton at 2 PM, and of course Sunday is Super Bowl LV.  Great specials are available both days; please check out the info on the right side of the page for details.


February 2, 2021

Good news for bars, restaurants & other small businesses... as of today Cook County has officially moved into "Phase 4" mitigations, which is back where we were before the end of October.  This allows greater capacities and much more!  Here's a official PDF link to the full series of info.


January 31, 2021

Despite the heavy snows we are OPEN today for full service business and ready to serve you!  Remember that we offer our full menu for carryout along with a limited selection for online ordering & delivery via DoorDash.

January 28, 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.  If you are looking for a place to host a corporate event or meeting, birthday party, rehearsal dinner, bachelor/bachelorette party, wedding reception, holiday party or any other special event, we offer banquet options within our facility for private and semi-private parties & events.  Check out our Banquets-Parties page for further information on our offerings.  For bookings, professional planning assistance and additional details, contact our events planner, Lisa Brady, at events@barringtonpub.com or 224-717-9199.


January 23, 2021

Effective TODAY restaurants in Chicago and Cook County are now OPEN for business!  Limited capacities and additional restrictions do apply at the "Tier 1" level, but that's at least moving in the right direction for all the struggling establishments.  For those who didn't feel safe going out before, please get out and frequent your local Pubs/Bars/Restaurants!  As you already know we have been and will continue to be here for you, plus we can never say enough how grateful we are for all the support. THNAK YOU!!!


January 21, 2021

Coming later next week we'll have some menu changes and perhaps more daily specials.  Stay tuned!


January 14, 2021

This coming Sunday (January 17) the Pub opens its doors at 10:15 AM for the Manchester United – Liverpool match at 10:30 AM; these are currently the top two teams in the Premier League!  We'll be offering our usual $4 Heineken 20oz drafts matchday special, plus we will be honoring our good friend Mike Ginsburg (who passed away a month ago) with $4 Stella Artois drafts and a small complimentary breakfast buffet at halftime.

December 31, 2020

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.


December 13, 2020

It is with a heavy heart that we state this news... Mike Ginsburg, a close friend of the Pub owner and true friend of the Pub & its patrons, passed away of liver & kidney failure at the young age of 52.  The link to this announcement has been posted on the Pub's Facebook page.

Due to the COVID-19 restrictions on restaurants it is still necessary for us to limit our offerings, but we are pleased to announce some expansion!  Kitchen closes at 9 PM every evening and we currently are not offering our late night menu options.  Seating is limited and we do not take reservations, but we have plenty of inside "social distance" room & options with the Vault area and our Mezzanine section.  We will also eventually reopen our second level (The Loft) for additional indoor dining space.

Upcoming Entertainment


As you probably figured, due to COVID-19 our entertainment plans went on hiatus in mid-March and was to remain in effect until alll bars and restaurants were able to reopen at sensible levels.  As of August we did try some live music but it may have been "too soon" to be indoors for most people. As the pandemic and social climate becomes more feasible for entertainment we'll bring back some bands both in our main level and The Loft (our 2nd level).
