Drew’s on Halsted has been a staple in the Lakeview neighborhood since 1996, delighting locals and visitors with classic American fare, a full bar, and a friendly atmosphere. Their food is locally sourced, and our seasonal menu always has something new to try.

Russ Goeltenbodt is the Entertainment Director for Drew’s on Halsted. In a few short years he has brought back a supper club experience that had all but disappeared from the Chicago music scene. With ever growing audiences, Russ has invited special musical guest performers, giving artists a chance to perform and restaurant goers the opportunity to see and hear Chicago talent, while dining in one of Lakeview’s culinary gem’s

Russ began the music nights at Drew’s in the summer of 2018. His show sold out and due to popular demand, returned with another sold-out show. He then came up with the idea of having a monthly cabaret night. Due to its popularity and success, music was expanded bringing in top performers, including Chicago’s Cabaret Queen Denise Tomasello, New York cabaret star Michael McAssey, and Britain’s Tim McArthur, David Maiocco and Mark Hartman to name a few.

Produced by Denise Tomasello Entertainment, this has given a new performing space for Chicago talent, and now that Covid is under control, Drew’s is ready to welcome back Cabaret!
