Kitschy 50s diner with diverse crowd packs in the who's who of DC's gay community
The diner food and booze at Duplex brings in DC's A-list crowd. Decorated with knick-knacks and memorabilia—it's a kitsch lover's paradise. Thursday nights are the busiest. Situated between the gay Dupont hood and the trendy/gay Adams Morgan. Catch DC gay celebs like blogger Andrew Sullivan and Barney Frank here in the city where politics never stops.

      empty restaurant on Saturday night
      Only a few people there on a Saturday night September 9. Maybe it's not the place to go to anymore.

      No stop in D.C. is complete without a stop at Duplex Diner. Whether you are looking for a drink with friends or in need of a great burger, salad or some tater tots Duplex is always serving up some great eats and drinks. If you are really adventurous try the lemon squeeze, but don’t say I didn’t warn you. Every night is a fun night but Thursday is definitely the best. Duplex’s brunch is also a great Sunday fun time.

      Thursday Nights for cocktails
      Yep it's a big click but the guys are cute (if you like clean cut guys) and I had no problem striking up a conversation. The tables are put away on Thursday nights after dinner and the place becomes a big ole gay bar. Check it out.

      Best of Both Worlds
      A gay bar and a fun diner with a vintage look and feel? That's a winning combination. Everyone is welcome and the food is comfort-based; don't go if you're on a diet. Every table gets a bowl of pickles to munch on...unique! And the tater tots and fish and chips have me going back when I need my fried food kick.

      EVERY Time
      I've been here on various occasions and it was a disaster! The crowd is one big click that, trust me, you won't fit into. I actually personally know everyone on my FaceBook Friends List and have had no problem making friends since moving to DC. Thankfully, I didn't start here!

      In what other gay bar can you also get mac and cheese like mom used to make? Highly recommended.

      Diverse Crowd, Cheap Food, Big Drinks
      Voted by OUT Magazine as one of the 25 Best Gay Bars in the World. Lively neighborhood bar scene takes over the restaurant on Thursday nights. Always fun!
