McGonigal's Pub features a fantastic 2nd level that seats up to 100 for dining, business meeting, private parties, corporate events and other similar functions.  A built-in music stage (with functional PA system) is perfect for bands and other instances where some elevation is needed.  Several HDTVs are at your disposal, making it possible to run DVD presentations or even a hookup directly from a PC.  The room is accessible via stairs and an elevator, and comes equipped with a fully stocked bar, jukebox and restrooms on the same level.  Additionally on our 2nd level we have a more private banquet/meeting room, complete with large Plasma HDTV, that holds 24-30.  In the main level of the Pub we can map out areas to accommodate up to 30 people for casual gatherings as well.  There is ample parking available and of course we are only 2½ blocks from the Barrington Metra Train Station.  Overall, our establishments offer several different unique options for your events.  Please stop by, take a look and see what we can do for you!

NOTE: Through th end of 2016 we also have the space formerly known as The Annex, complete with a full bar, high top & low top seating, dartboard, jukebox and several HDTVs... this can accommodate private or semi-private parties up to 75!
