At the bar. At a table. No matter where you sit, you're always sitting with friends here. Duplex Diner is located at the intersection of D.C.'s historic neighborhoods of Adams Morgan and Dupont Circle. We're always at the center of fun dinners, festive brunches, fantastic drinks, and of course funky music. Need some family time? Good news: we're adopting.

See ya soon!

Yum. Buzz. Heeey.


From tots to street tacos, we've got the grub to keep you satisfied. Our menu covers any craving.


Our bartenders are some of the best in DC. Thirsty... (for our drink menu)?

But don't just take our word for it...

I've been coming to Duplex for more than 15 years. We call it the diner, but all comparisons end there. Our Manger Kelly & Chef Josué have put together one of the best menus in town, which is constantly evolving. The drinks are slightly a good way. And, you just feel like family when you're here.

A word from the owners

Mark Hunker and Jeff McCracken
Diner owners Mark Hunker and Jeff McCracken

“No one really owns Duplex, because everyone owns Duplex. It's everyone's home, and that's what makes it so special.”

Mark Hunker and Jeff McCracken have been Duplex regulars since 1998, and in 2015 became the proprietors of this historic landmark. It was the culmination of love and loyalty that led them to becoming the proud parents of one of DC's most celebrated establishments.

Duplex isn't our's your place.

Come see us,
