Upscale Bar Crawl in Arlington Heights

This bar crawl features three Arlington Heights restaurants, and is more subdued then your traditional crawl. You may want to order some small plate items at each stop and turn this into a progressive dinner.

Francesca's Tavola, 208 South Arlington Heights Road, Arlington Heights IL 60005 847-394-3950

The first stop on the crawl is the Francesca’s Tavola. This  is one of “The Family of Francesca Restaurants”, and is a bit of a walk, but worth it. The menu is ever changing and features many seasonal items, your group may want to order some starters to share. The bar is spacious and there is a nice wine list.

To get to Francesca’s from the Metra Station head southeast on US-14 E, and turn right on South Arlington Heights Road. It is about a 9 minute walk.

Red Moon Martini Lounge, 70 South Arlington Heights, IL 60005 847-670-4870

The next stop on our list is the Red Moon Martini Lounge. As the name suggests they serve traditional as well as unique martinis, many with intriguing names such as the “Moonwalker” or the “Kryptonite” Martini. A full bar is available if martinis aren’t your thing. Asian inspired small plate items are also available. Expect eclectic decor, this is more of a lounge atmosphere with sofas as opposed to tables and chairs.

To get to the Red Moon Martini Lounge from Francesca’s head north on South Arlington Heights Road. Although the address is Arlington Heights Road this lounge is tucked away between Davis St. and Sigwalt St. This is only about a 3 minute walk.

Big Shot Piano Lounge & Restaurant, 2 South Vail Avenue, Arlington Heights, IL 60005 847-870-6890

The Big Shot Piano Lounge & Restaurant is the last stop on this bar crawl. Entertainment is available during the week as well as the weekend. Enjoy the piano music with a flight of wine, cocktail or beer. There are a number of small plate items also available.

To get to the Big Shot Piano Lounge & Restaurant, head south on South Arlington Heights Road, right on East Sigwalt Street and right on South Vail Avenue.  This is about a 6 minute walk .

To get back to the Metra Station  from the Big Shot Piano Lounge, head North on Vail Avenue.
