If you are looking tor that neighborhood bar feel, the kind where everyone knows your name, or acts like they do, then Matt’s should be your next stop. With their recent updates, Matt’s is the perfect place to meet with friends or family, have a drink,(my favorite is their Moscow Mule in a copper cup),and grab a game. Matt’s is also a great bar crawl spot, right across from the Crystal Lake station.

Going on a bar crawl can be a great way to sample the offerings of different restaurants. This more subdued crawl can easily become a small plate progressive dinner as well. Enjoy the lovely downtown Arlington Heights, as it has a lot to offer, with great restaurants, shopping and entertainment.
