Upcoming Events

Will & Grace Viewing party

Thursdays, 9 PM – 9:30 PM

That's right, poodle! Join us EVERY Thursday for a Will & Grace Viewing Party, part of your mandatory Thirsty Thursday lineup! We will show Will, Grace, Jack, and Karen on all of our 5 screens with sound from 9-9:30 pm on Thursday nights. Get here early to save a table for dinner and grab a Karen & Jack Squeeze OR a Will & Grace Squeeze -- and then stick around for your SQUEEZE when the show is over! Then, come back next week, and the next week, and the next week.



Veteran's Day Thursday

Thursday, November 9th

Thursday is THURSDAY at the Diner! Except this week Thursday is a HOLIDAY eve, so you have off on Friday (or at least we know you can go in ate)!!! Come get a squeeze, either in a glass or somewhere else -- that's up to you. We're packed all night. The Diner is where DC's weekend starts!



Miss Adams Morgan Happy Hour

Friday, November 17th 7 PM – 9 PM

It happens every year, as predictable as the tides -- the old Miss Adams Morgan retires, and a new one rises form the ashes to take her place; metaphorically speaking, of course.

We said farewell to 2017's Miss Amanda LaMancha and we welcome Miss Adams Morgan 2018 -- Miss New York, Eva Von Beaverhausen!

If you missed her taking the crown at the pageant, come by and say hello at her November 17th Happy Hour! It's fun and we'll be serving up Beaver Squeezes (a cocktail sensation named in her honor) all night! Please join the Dupont Social Club and Miss Adams Morgan XXX in ushering in the Reign of Unity. Whether you are a member of the DSC, interested in becoming a member, or just plain love drag this is the place for you!



Thanksgiving Day After Party

Thursday, November 23rd 9 PM – 2 AM

Yeah, we know how ever year goes: Turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing. Uncle Gene yelling about kids today with their rap music and their pants hanging down, and what is this Snapchat everybody keeps yapping about?

We're here to restore your sanity with our annual Thanksgiving Day After Party. No more turkey -- just the tastiest cocktails to take your mind off of Uncle Gene. Squeezes of all varities, plus a full menu of fun and friends. Enjoy the holiday after the holiday! Doors open at 9 pm.



Pub Crawlin' For Tots

Saturday, December 2nd 7 PM – 8 PM

We didn't want to wait until December to let you know about this great event! Join this annual crawl as they drink, sing, and be merry and visit some of DC's finest gay bars. Guests are encouraged to bring an unwrapped toy appropriate for children up to age 12 to donate to the DC area Toys for Tots campaign, sponsored by the US Marine Corps. Duplex is stop number three, but we will be collecting toys all weekend. Drop by during the crawl for a Lemon Squeeze  -- the official drink of DC's holiday-themed pub crawls. Also, have some good-for-you TOTS while you do something good for the TOTS! #pc4t2017
