Beer. BBQs. Bands. The coolest venue in the city is at Brown Street, open all day from midday, seven days a week.
Great food, drinks and coffee served all day and your late night sanctuary till 2.30am every Wed-Sun. Duke’s serves up an impressive range of international and craft beers as well areas wines and cocktails, live gigs, DJs and some very chilled socialising.
On our sunny days, you’ll find the most welcoming beer garden in the city prepped for grill, drinks and long conversations. Bring friends, stay a while and watch day turn into late night in the blink of an eye.
