  • It's like trying to find a needle in a gaystick.on a Thursday night at this place...not complaining, just saying....
  • Kitschy 50s diner with diverse crowd packs in the who's who of DC's gay community
  • Duplex is the definition of a neighborhood favorite. Tons of regulars, great watch parties (esp. Drag Race!), and dancing. Food is great, and cocktails are even better!
  • Service was great from our bartender.
  • Tater tots. And during happy hour, free at the bar!
  • Poor service...had burgers with fries and onion rings. Burgers were mediocre; fries and onion rings were "over fried" or maybe "twice fried" if there is such a thing. Wouldn't come back...
  • The new menu is nice. The airline chicken with romesco, black bean, corn and farro is divine!
  • Such a cool establishment. Big & strong drinks, cool music, a Madonna restroom. Oh, yes, it's guy but it's super friendly!
  • The sriracha Bloody Mary
  • Tater. Tots.
  • Amazing tots
  • Stella and tots
  • The DONUT HOLES ARE HEAVENLY!!! A must have!!!
  • Get the Mac & Cheese
