Absolutely loved this show. Heather took us through the decades singing her favorite tunes. Heather was gracious and poised and I really enjoyed her explanations of why each song was chosen. Hoping Davenport’s will invite her back.

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

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
