NSHReview

There’s nothing flashy about Duke’s in East Nashville, which is exactly why we love it. The beer is cold and cheap, drinks are named after regulars, and it’s just the right amount of divey without making you wonder when the last time they cleaned the bathrooms was. Local DJs spin vinyl after 10pm every night and there’s also a sandwich counter with unique specials. Go dance, drink far too many High Lifes, have a snack, and be very happy that Duke’s exists.
