...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 met about 10 friends here for drinks and music on a Sunday in February. The bar was fine, although we had to go up and get drinks many times rather than being waited on. There is also music in the back room which we didn't go to. Must have good sound proofing because we were not bothered by it.

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 with huge cabaret talent, and Davenport's showcases it so very well. This is a great... 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) take turns singing. I would like more of Beckie but did enjoy most of the... 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 in a very intimate space, perhaps only seating 80 around cocktail tables. $40 per person... More
