About Duke's Grocery
The result of a couple guys who love good food and cold drinks, Duke's Grocery is a neighbourhood pub and supper spot located in the Dupont Circle and Foggy Bottom areas of Washington, D.C., with a Duke's Counter sister location in Woodley Park / National Zoo.

The idea is simple: create a fun spot that our friends (you!) can come in anytime and have a fulfilling meal, a tasty drink and great time in an atmosphere that is unpretentious and laid back. Tuck in, drink up and enjoy!

A nod to the ubiquitous corner cafés, bodegas and curry joints of the East London neighborhoods of Shoreditch and Hoxton, our culinary inspiration is as diverse as these brilliantly working class parts of the English capital.
