The Drake is a legendary Laguna Beach restaurant known for its spectacular menu and swanky interior, created by Alec Glasser. The Drake in Laguna was first created in 2019 and was inspired by the old Drake Hotel in New York City, where Alec used to work as an elevator operator and bellman. Offering talented performers, who play nightly, and chefs just as The Drake hotel once had, The Drake’s decor and ambience take on many of the same themes as The Drake hotel.

However, The Drake is more than just a restaurant. It’s also dedicated to giving back to the community. The mission of The Drake’s non-profit organization, The Drake Gives, is “to connect, inspire, and help under-deserved youth reach their full potential. The foundation helps provide youth with the music education, materials and instruments they need and deserve to fuel their passions and experience the power of music.” 

Entrepreneur and founder of The Drake Laguna, Alec Glasser

Alec first learned how to play the saxophone in school when he was 12. Being introduced to music at such a young age helped to shape his life in ways he never even dreamed to be possible. His motivation for creating The Drake Gives is for all kids to be able to have the same opportunity and exposure to music in their public school education and to help public schools that have specifically been affected by budget cuts.

The Drake Gives is proudly sponsoring a full scholarship for Dr. Mathew Knowles’ upcoming Artist Development course with Point Blank LA.
