  • About

    Ron Onesti, the impresario who recently celebrated the one year anniversary of his extremely popular “Club Arcada” Speakeasy & Restaurant in St. Charles, is ready to make a big splash with Evanston Rocks - the hottest new live music venue in downtown Evanston! Consisting of the Evanston Rocks Music Room, Rock 'N Ravioli Italian Restaurant and Bourbon 'N Brass Speakeasy, there are THREE venues in one building all located at the former 27 Live building at 1012 Church Street!

    Evanston Rocks Music Room hosts live entertainment Wednesday through Sunday, with acts ranging from classic rock icons to local indie groups to nationally touring tribute bands. There are three VIP suites located on the second floor - the 1970s Classic Rock Suite, 1980s Hair Band Suite and 1990s Grunge Metal Suite.

    “Rock ‘N Ravioli” serves generations-old Italian recipes and fabulous live music. The Rock ‘N Rav menu features numerous varieties of home-made fillings and sauces including Braised Short Ribs and Potato, Lobster and Asparagus, and Frangelico Creme Sauce on Pumpkin Ravs. Our full menu is available now, with a wide variety of small plates to round out the food offerings.

    Creative craft cocktails and beers will be available both at “Rock ‘N Ravioli” and at “Bourbon & Brass” an exquisite 1920s-style Speakeasy & Showroom located on the restaurant’s second level. A cabaret stage will add to the ambiance of the antique-laden room with live entertainment Wednesdays through Sundays.
