Here's a few noteworthy upcoming events in and around the Pub:

Saturday May 28th - Sunday May 29th is the 7th Annual Barrington Art Festival.  10 AM - 5 PM both days, and the Pub will be in the center of it (literally) serving refreshments.

Thursday June 2nd is the kickoff night for the 13th year of Barrington Cruise Nights, and the Pub will be front and center again serving up delicious food!

Saturday June 4th we will be having a special "bon voyage" party in The Annex, open to all patrons.  More information on this event to follow. 

Friday June 10th is the 19th Annual Barrington Area Relay for Life, which runs 5 PM - 11 PM at Barrington High School.  The Pub not only donates to this cause but also is a food vendor participant!  Details here.

There will be several more events in July which we will list soon.  Two of primary interest are Uncork Barrington (July 8th) and the 13th Annual Barrington Brewfest (July 9th).  We participate in both but are the "Grand Brewmaster Sponsor" for the Brewfest for the 7th straight year!

May 12, 2016

We welcome Celtic Thunder's Colm Keegan and Laura Durant back to the Pub for TWO special performances on Saturday July 2nd!  Info for the "I'll Never Be Alone" Show (2:00 PM) can be found here, and the "4th Of July Party" show (7:00 PM) can be found here.  For additional information at this time, check out www.ColmKeegan.com.

The Pub wishes all the fantastic moms out there a very happy Mother's Day this Sunday.  It's hard to show appreciation for such important people with just one day, but we'll try... we have some fantastic specials - both food and drink - for all moms and their families.  No reservations required!

May 2, 2016

Our April beer of the month was so popular we're giving it another month!  May is Blue Moon, $4 drafts all day all month long!  Next month we get into the "summer" styles... stay tuned!

April 21, 2016

This Saturday, April 23rd, is Barrington's 2016 Spring Wine Walk.  The times are 2 PM - 6 PM, and as always the Pub is a sponsor of this fun event that encompasses most of the downtown area!  The Annex will also be directly participating by opening early and offering additional wine tasting specials, including bottles for purchase.  For additional details please visit the Village of Barrington website, and maps of the event are available here in PDF format.

April 4, 2016

Our Chicago Cubs start their 2016 season tonight in Anaheim, but in a week when they have their official home opener we'll be ready with home gameday specials - $2 Budweiser 16oz Aluminum cans and $2 Miller Lite & MGD 16oz cans - that are good for every Cubs home game!  We'll also be announcing similar gameday specials for the Chicago Blackhawks upcoming playoff run, stay tuned for more details.

The 6th Annual event was another huge success, THANK YOU to all our patrons, the Barrington community and all great efforts from our staff.  We're already looking forward to next year, and St. Patrick's Day falls on a Friday!  As time permits some updates and recaps will be posted right here on our website and the Celtic Fest Facebook page.

March 9, 2016

Though every year it's overshadowed by our annual St. Patrick's Day celebration (Barrington Celtic Fest), the Pub's business anniversary is March 9th.  Today happens to be our SIX YEAR anniversary!  We sincerely thank the community and all our patrons and staff - both current and past - as we wouldn't have been successful without your support.  As a token of our appreciation, we have some outstanding specials planned for the day: two of our signature food items at just $6 (Denny Reuben and Shepherd's Pie), along with an ALL DAY Happy Hour!  Enjoy, and THANKS!


February 29, 2016
