When Benjamin Howard Marshall envisioned the Drake brother's hotel, he saw an opportunity on the corner of Lake Shore Drive and Michigan Avenue (then called Pine Street). He believed the Near North Side would become Chicago's most important location—he was right. John and Tracy Drake’s namesake, Drake Bros', provides a casual familial atmosphere that overlooks Oak Street Beach, Lake Shore Drive, and the Magnificent Mile. Adorned in pictures from the past, guests can take in the history of The Drake while enjoying the distinguished cuisine of Drake Bros'.
The 58th Annual Air & Water Show presented by the City of Chicago can be viewed along the lakefront - and the Drake Bros. Restaurant. Sit back and relax for breakfast or lunch in the comforts of the Drake Bros., while watching the rehearsals starting on Friday, August 19th and the official show on Saturday & Sunday August 20th & 21st starting at 10am.
