With the warm season quickly approaching, Rome’s terraces and gardens reopen. Do not miss those of Duke’s, a real point of reference in Parioli, a neighborhood that in recent years moved decidedly towards the future and the world of young people, with new and innovative places. What you will find at number 200 of Viale Parioli is perfect for a pleasant evening of good music and quality food (with the added bonus of having free and safe parking for all customers).
It takes its name from the Hawaiian Duke Kahanamoku, passed into history as an extraordinary character, unique for his good humor and sense of hospitality. Duke’s embodies these values and becomes the ideal meeting place to tease all the senses and enjoy pleasant moments.
The kitchen is simple, with ingredients from all over the world. The staff is helpful and attentive, welcoming guests with warmth to make everyone feel at ease. The bartender offers excellent drinks and the wine list has selected labels from around the world. The atmosphere is tasteful, but without being stuffy or too formal. You are in the right place to have an aperitif and then have dinner with the “fine casual dining” and “neighborhood restaurant & bar”.
After 11 pm, the place is transformed and becomes a large ballroom where you can meet and get to know interesting people who live in the neighborhood, but also many Americans, French and English who live in Rome and work at the nearby embassies. It is the right place to wait for that touch of magic that, when you least expect it, will come as a surprise.
