Duke’s Is Reopening on Friday and Thanks the Community for Its Support

Duke’s Malibu, a landmark restaurant in the area since 1996, will re-open its dining room for business on Friday, April 8, after being damaged by flooding during the heavy rains on March 20. The restaurant underwent extensive repairs and renovation as a result of the water damage and continues to work to re-open the Barefoot Bar.
Duke’s dining room will re-open with a refreshed look, including new carpeting, re-finished Hawaiian Koa wood paneling and some new artwork.
“We took this unexpected turn of events as an opportunity to make Duke’s better than ever,” said General Manager, Josh Morgan. “As we work to get the Barefoot Bar ready to re-open, hopefully later this month, we are also making improvements to the guest experience including a new glass wall on our patio overlooking the surf.”
During the flood and throughout the clean-up process Duke’s has received an outpouring of help from the fire department, guests, vendors, and the local community.
“So many people have offered to lend a hand or simply wished us well during this process and we simply can’t thank our local community enough for their support,” said Morgan. “Our namesake, Duke Kahanamoku, taught us about the spirit of Aloha and so have our neighbors. We look forward to welcoming everyone back in the coming weeks and celebrating this community of which we are so proud to be a part.”
When the dining room resumes dinner service on Friday, April 8, Duke’s will have some special enticements that evening to welcome guests back, including strolling Hawaiian musicians, specially priced wines by the glass from Semler/Saddlerock Vineyards and a new featured drink, “the Storm Drain.”
Located adjacent to the ocean, Duke’s offers spectacular ocean views and Hawaiian-influenced cuisine in a relaxed, social environment. The restaurant is named after Duke Kahanamoku, one of Hawaii’s most famous citizens, who is widely considered to be the father of international surfing. Duke’s ambiance is reminiscent of a Hawaiian beach house and includes memorabilia depicting the California surfing lifestyle. The restaurant’s Barefoot Bar offers an outdoor patio next to the surf. In addition, there are other Duke’s locations on the beach in Huntington Beach, Waikiki, Maui and Kauai.
Duke’s is located at 21150 Pacific Coast Highway at the intersection of Las Flores Canyon. For additional information please call Duke’s Malibu at 310-317-0777 or visit the restaurant website at
