We have been here for years. It's a ritual every anniversary. We go on a Saturday when the Nitz and Howe experience is performing. It's always a fun entertainment and the drinks are great. Try the pear Martini. It's butter down your throat, just be...More

We had just left a play which was not very good and the couple that was hosting us thought going to Davenport's would be fun. They were right! When we arrived we were seated by the window with an excellent view of the piano and...More

My wife and I visit Davenports many times each year. We typically come for one of the shows in the back room and then stay for the music in the front. The back room seats about 75-100 people, making the shows very intimate in nature....More

...at least that's what one of our party said. Drinks are good sized and inexpensive. The staff is friendly and part of the entertainment...and the entertainment was exceptional! I haven't gone to many cabaret performances but after this I think I might.

We again attended a performance in the back room, which is small,cozy, and a great setting for the incredible cabaret talent that Davenports features. We paid $25 each and were required a two drink minimum. However the experience is well worth it. Chicago is alive...More

Three of us went to Davenport's to hear Beckie Menzie in the bar on a Wednesday evening. She is a great talent - singing and playing the piano. The format is like Monday Night Life at Petterino's. Local talent (who are often plugging future shows)...More

The front room of Davenport is right out of a Saturday Night Live spoof of a bad piano bar. The drinks are less than EH and the quality of entertainment comically bad.

In the back room of Davenport's is something hard to find in Chicago, real cabaret. Last night we saw an absolutely class act, a woman singing Torch songs, world class talent, and presentation, complete with a first class piano player and bass player. Great singing...More
