A restaurant that loves beer and a bar that loves food. Over 20 craft beers on tap, big burgers and the freshest sushi in town. Your go-to for lunch, dinner and late-night, Drake’s 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. Come play!
Pat was born and raised in Frankfort, Kentucky, and attended the University of Kentucky, which is where he first enjoyed Drake’s as a guest. However, it took a move to Nashville to begin working for the company as a bartender at Drake’s Cool Springs. He was promoted to management after six months, and shortly after got the opportunity to help open Drake’s Knoxville as the bar manager. He also spent some time at our Paddock Shops location in Louisville before being named Managing Partner of Chattanooga and has loved every second of it since.
Pat’s favorite thing about Drake’s is the people, both within the four walls of our restaurant and outside and them. Pat says, “I’m grateful for the opportunity to work in a concept I truly believe in and is just as fun to work in as be a guest in.”
