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 seven nights a week and there’s also a sandwich counter that makes different creations each night. Go dance, drink far too many High Lifes, eat a sandwich, and be very happy that Duke’s exists.
