Duplex Diner

The Duplex Diner, or the 18th & U as it’s also known, has the casual feel of the 1950s eateries it emulates and a reputation for au courant cocktails. Some nights attract more patrons than others; for instance, the Thursday night bar and club crowd often relies on the Duplex as its opening act. The menu lists diner favorites—burgers and fries, natch—but the real draw is the neighborhood feel.
