Perched upon the water like a boat at sea, a drink at Duke's of Malibu will make you feel as though you may just float away.
A panoramic ocean view awaits you at Duke's of Malibu complete with the outside "Barefoot Bar" which is sure to put you inside a Hawaiian luau, if only in a daydream. Relax, have fun and perhaps put on a little sunscreen. Once you start noshing on the outside bar deck it is difficult to find a reason to leave!

Aloha! A friendly staff welcomes you to this Hawaiian influenced chain restaurant. You'll want to go visit Hawaii after just a short time there. Set above the Pacific at waters-edge, the ocean view does not get much better then this. The view is truly spectacular. You will feel like you are on a boat as waves crash aside you and dolphins swim by regularly. This is the next best thing to being right on the beach - perfect for beach goers and non-beach goers alike. Come for the Sunday brunch buffet & be ready for a boisterous crowd. Duke's is also appropriate for group special occasions. The outside "Barefoot Bar", is perhaps one of the best beach bars in Los Angeles. It is truly unique in its incredible proximity to the water. The Barefoot Bar is the perfect place for outside drinks and appetizers amongst friends. Once there, you will want to stay and just let the hours tic on by. The true draw of Duke's Malibu is the location and the Barefoot Bar has got just that! As you smell the salt air breezes and your skin becomes sun-kissed, you will be forced to do nothing else but relax and perhaps order another round of drinks. As in Hawaii, casual dress is dressy at Duke's of Malibu - so basically wear whatever you want.
Review By Darianne Doobie
Duke Paoa Kahanamoku born in 1890 from Honolulu, Hawaii, competed in the Olympics for 20 years earning various metals for swimming and 1 for water polo. Known for popularizing swimming and surfing world-wide, Duke's legacy is celebrated everyday.
Be ready to valet park, parking on PCH is treacherous.

If you are feeling nostalgic for the bygone era of the 1930's, you don't have to buy a time machine, you just have to mosey on down to Oldfield's in Culver City.
Sonny McClean's is a clover-colored, spacious Irish pub with all the traditional fixings along with great company – if you're a Boston sports fan.
