Drake's, like the guy who named it (Brian McCarty), and the guy it's named for (Bruce Drake), is a free-wheeling, fun-loving kind of joint. A place to hang out and let your hair down. A place to let yourself go a little. A neighborhood spot with something for everyone. Where you could run into just about anyone.
Legend has it, Bruce couldn’t sleep one night. So, he grabbed his keys and went out in search of a good burger, a decent beer and maybe even some good music in the kind of place he’d want to hang out in at any hour. To his surprise, that place didn’t exist. Most people would have given up and gone back to bed. But Bruce, being Bruce, hit speed dial and said, “Brian? Wake up buddy, I have this idea…”
Drake’s was BORN. It’s a RESTAURANT that’s BIG ON BEER. It’s a BAR that’s BIG ON FOOD. Family friendly by day, happening at happy hour and hip after hours.
