Special Events & Private Parties
Special events and private parties are opportunities for us to work more closely with our guests, occasions for us to share our dedication to celebration in exciting new ways. Enjoy over 10,000 square feet of party space featuring three unique bars, a game room and a private lounge. The Ale House offers Arlington Heights a new way to celebrate special events and private parties with a great location and exceptional service. The best part? Choose from a variety of caterers for your event or bring in your own food but you won't be limited to one menu. Just ask us about our catering favorites and recommendations. We accept a limited number of reservations up to six months in advance for groups of 25 to 300 guests. If you want to come with your friends and not pay a room fee and deposit? Great, come on in. Seating is first come first serve. We have plenty of community tables and we would love to have you! If you are looking for a private party space, details are below.
