It's known for its wetlands, parks, forest preserves, and horse trails, with their hometown slogan being "a great place to live, work, and play!" When you're playing out here in the Barrington area with Chicago Party Bus, here are the places we recommend dining and drinking!

NEAR Restaurant

108 Barrington Commons Ct
Barrington, IL 60010
(847) 382-1919

NEAR Restaurant is one of the best known Italian restaurants in the Barrington area, super clean and spacious, really ideally suited to Chicago Party Bus groups. They have such a wide variety of delicious pastas and entrees to choose from, but do your best to save some room for dessert, as it's always homemade and always delicious!

McGonigal's Pub

105 S Cook St
Barrington, IL 60010
(847) 277-7400

Favorite pub in the Barrington area? We think so! Chicago Party Bus customers cannot get enough of McGonigal's and neither can our crew. It's got a very authentic Irish pub vibe, some of the best food in town, and also some of the greatest service. When there's live music happening, it's even better. Great place to watch the game on TV.

Francesca's Famiglia

100 E Station St
Barrington, IL 60010
(847) 277-1027

Another beloved Italian restaurant in the Barrington vicinity for our Chicago Party Bus partygoers is Francesca's Famiglia, and you really will feel like family when you're there. They are super consistent with the quality of everything here, from the restaurant side to the bar side, it's all great! This is another place where you'll want to save room for dessert!


736 W Northwest Hwy
Barrington, IL 60010
(847) 382-1988

Asian fusion has never been better than it is at PI8. Very modern, very impressive. The bar area is a particular highlight here, and we think you'll really enjoy sipping some specialty cocktails along with your delicious Chinese, Japanese, and Thai food here! If you like it spicy, they've got a lot of heat-packed dishes for you to dive into! Mmm!

Wool Street Grill & Sports Bar

128 Wool St
Barrington, IL 60010
(847) 304-0313

Wool Street Grill & Sports Bar is probably one of the most fantastic places you could ever choose to watch the game in Barrington, and it's also just incredibly comfortable and well suited to large Chicago Party Bus groups. The dining side is very family friendly and comfortable, and the bar side is very lively and fun for adults-only groups. Too perfect!


500 N Hough
Barrington, IL 60010
(847) 637-0040

Are you a burger lover on the road with Chicago Party Bus in Barrington? Then Meatheads should be a top priority for you to visit! The bronco burger with fries... and we do want to stress that the fries are actually on the burger... is too delish. Pair it with a nice thick milkshake or malt and you're really good to go! Love it here!

Ciao Baby

232 E Main St
Barrington, IL 60010
(847) 381-3555

Another excellent Italian restaurant in Barrington! They've been able to accommodate even our largest Chicago Party Bus groups with absolutely no problems, and both the food and ambiance are just exquisite. It's a loud and lively atmosphere, so even your most boisterous groups will blend right in, whether in the dining or bar areas. Nice!

The Annex

205 Park Ave
Barrington, IL 60010
(847) 382-3900

The Annex is an American pub and tapas bar where we think that your party bus group will really feel at home. You can enjoy an amazing meal and drinks at a pretty affordable price, and it's all of the highest quality possible. When we were there, they had peppermint martinis on special, and those were like a pure shot of winter! Just delish.

Cook Street Coffee

100 E Station St
Barrington, IL 60010
(847) 387-3768

Cook Street Coffee is a nice alternative to the usual corporate coffee chains that we're all so used to nowadays. Their slogan is "good people, great coffee," and we think it doesn't get much more accurate than that, especially when a Chicago Party Bus group is there! They serve up two daily brews plus a cappuccino bar. Very nice to visit!

Yankee Doodle Inn

311 E Main St
Barrington, IL 60010
(847) 381-1098

Yankee Doodle Inn is a cozy Barrington bar where you'll feel really at home. If you're seeking a "Cheers" vibe, you just might find it here. They've got a nice juke box and it's also a cozy spot to watch the Cubs play on TV. The doodle fries are what they're best known for here but we also recommend the parmesan flatbread and the wings!
