We are a small venue, and our mezzanine level (which we lovingly call the Nosebleed Lounge) is the space that we book for parties, leaving the ground floor open for walk-in business
NOTE: RENTAL, MUSIC SETUP/DJ OR ADDITIONAL STAFFING FEES DO NOT GO TOWARDS MEETING MINIMUM FOOD AND BEVERAGE SPENDS
With three flat-screen TVs and all high-top tables, our balcony-style mezzanine level is the perfect way to enjoy Duke’s atmosphere away from the crowds. Ideal for cocktail parties, the Nosebleed lounge has a maximum standing capacity of 50 guests, but 40 is most comfortable. If you’re okay with sharing, we can book half the space for parties of 20-25, and leave the other half open for walk-in business. Seated meals are possible in the Nosebleed Lounge, but aren’t ideal, as many of the tables are tall and mismatched. We can seat up to 35 with a rearranged banquet-style setup.
We book the Nosebleed Lounge for three-hour timeslots – additional time will result in a higher minimum. Because we are such a small restaurant and walk-in business levels are high, minimum spends are subject to many variables – your event specialist will be able to advise based on your event’s specifics
