Liquor License “L” Approved for Arlington Ale House on West Campbell St, Arlington Heights

Arlington Ale House was given the go ahead as the Village Board unanimously approved the Liquor Commissioner’s issuance of a Class “L” Liquor License to Arlington Ale House Ltd., dba Arlington Ale House, located at 111 W. Campbell Street, Suite 300.

We look forward to many, many years of great success there. We thank you for your willingness to work together with staff and other interested parties.

— Mayor Thomas Hayes

The venue will be a family-oriented gathering place that would also be available for corporate events, and would feature a 125-seat auditorium with a catering service, according to Kevin McCaskey. Use for the auditorium and space may also include an open mic night for comedians, music recitals, bingo, corporate training, online computer competitions, and community meetings.

The new business is an entertainment venue that will not serve food. Instead, patrons will be able to order takeout from nearby restaurants, play pool, bags or arcade games, watch sports on TV and eventually, possibly enjoy an outdoor patio.

Earlier in November, Village Manager Randall Recklaus explained that back in July 2016 the Village Board took steps to make an amendment to the liquor code to allow the sale of alcohol in spaces on the upper levels of downtown buildings that do not have kitchens … if they can provide food via other means. This example is part of a broader fine tuning to optimize the liquor code for the community.
