The Heights Pub Opens in Arlington Heights

A neighborhood restaurant and bar in the northwest suburbs of Boston debuts today, and the owner of a nearby dining and drinking spot is behind it.

According to a Twitter thread from @briankenney7, The Heights Pub opens at 4:00 PM in the old Balich 5 & 10 space in Arlington Heights, with a Facebook post from the Mass. Ave. place confirming this, saying "No reservations, first come first served. Come down and put in your name and phone number and we will call you once your table is ready. We are expecting a big crowd tonight, so please be patient. We look forward to seeing everyone." Plans have been in the works for The Heights Pub since the spring of 2019, with Jim O'Rourke of the First House Pub in Winchester running the place, and like the First House Pub, expect to see comfort food, pub grub, and classic American fare at the new spot along with beer, wine, and cocktails.

The address for The Heights Pub is 1314 Massachusetts Avenue, Arlington, MA, 02476.
