Hawthorn Heights

Blue Heron Cafe & Bar

405 W Northwest Hwy, Barrington, IL 60010, Phone number (847) 304-1994

Have you ever had the pleasure of traveling in the Hawthorn Woods area with Chicago Party Buses? Well, next time you do, we would very strongly recommend that you head over to Blue Heron Cafe & Bar to enjoy some food and drinks with all your buddies. This is one of those cozy neighborhood bars that gets constant comparisons to Cheers, and we always say that's the mark of a really great bar. You'll love the old fashioned service that you'll receive here and the fact that the food is just as good as the drinks. Nothing falls by the wayside here. It's all top notch quality from beginning to end, especially including the ambiance and service. Love it!

Prairie House Tavern

2710 Main St, Buffalo Grove, IL 60089, Phone number (847) 415-2255

Prairie House Tavern is an awesome old fashioned joint that you'll surely want to check out when you're chilling with Chicago Party Buses in Hawthorn Woods. Many have described this one as a dive bar slash family restaurant, and we'd say that's a pretty accurate way to sum it up in just five words! It's super cozy here for all kinds of groups, with really nicely plated meals to enjoy, including delish thin crust pizza, nice burgers and warps, and even fried green beans that we think are the perfect side to go with anything. They are open until 1 most nights but until 2 on Friday and Saturday, so that means it's the perfect late night destination for you!

Jake Moran's

57 S Lake St, Mundelein, IL 60060, Phone number (847) 566-5152

Jake Moran's is just pure awesomeness as far as we're concerned, located in an old home that has been converted in to a bar. Obviously, in that type of a setting, the amount of seating can be a problem for some of our larger Chicago Party Buses groups, so you'll want to call ahead for arrangements and to find out if they can accommodate you. But if your group fits, you're in for a real treat. The burgers with grilled onions are just fantastic and we are totally addicted to the fries here! The cole slaw is also fantastic. You'll love kicking back and watching the game with your Hawthorn Woods party bus buddies! Such good times are had here.


515 N Milwaukee Ave, Libertyville, IL 60048, Phone number (847) 367-6168

Firkin has one of the most pleasant vibes of all of the places that our Chicago Party Buses customers hang out in the Hawthorn Woods area! We just love the old fashioned and beautiful bar that they have built here, and the plating is just ridiculous in terms of how delicious they make everything look. And of course it lives up to its promise too! The grass fed burgers have got to be our favorite thing to eat here, and we're quite obsessed with their macaroni and cheese, not to mention the spicy pork sandwiches and the fried asparagus! Oh, we could go on and on! The beer selection is quite impressive and it's a blast to watch the game right here!

Gale Street Inn

935 Diamond Lake Rd, Mundelein, IL 60060, Phone number (847) 566-1090

Gale Street Inn has a rich history dating back to the '60s here in the Hawthorn Woods vicinity, and we would highly recommend asking the staff about that while you dine and drink there during your upcoming Chicago Party Buses trip. As far as the food goes, it's all about delicious seafood, yummy barbecue items, and fantastic steaks! The steakhouse atmosphere is exactly what you'll be after when you're hungry in this area, and you'll just love the way it's designed and decorated, so conducive to wonderful intimate conversations with your good friends. The prime rib is our highest recommendation and you will adore the fresh salad bar!
