The Duplex Diner is your neighborhood gathering place. From the beginning, the Duplex Diner filled a void that existed in DC – a fun and inviting bar and restaurant where you can come have drinks or dinner any night of the week and always feel welcome, whether you sitting at a booth with friends or solo at the bar. The Duplex Diner offers deceptively simple fare—classic comfort foods like Mac and Cheese, Meatloaf, Tater Tots, Pork Chops, Brownie Sundaes, as well as Low Country favorites like Fried Green Tomatoes, Shrimp and Grits and seasonal Cobblers.
The service is personal and never pretentious. Classic cocktails like the Lemon Squeeze and Rose Kennedy and house favorites like our Broccolini Salad, are served up every night. Longtime traditions, from “Half-Price Mondays,” playlists designed on Thursdays by regular customers and local notables, D-CU’PS’s Dolly Parton Birthday Celebration to the Janky Xmas Sweater Holiday Party are just some of the many reasons the Duplex has become a gathering place for the community.
Thirteen years since it first opened its doors, the Duplex Diner remains a what it set out to be – a fun and comfortable destination that serves great food and delicious cocktails and is always a good time.
