Why We Like This Place

Duke’s enviable waterfront location, fun-loving yet professional staff, and elegant event spaces will tempt you to celebrate right here on Malibu’s famous shores. This supremely popular restaurant and its private banquet rooms enhance all types of occasions—wedding ceremonies, receptions, rehearsal dinners, day-after brunches, and more—with gracious hospitality and gorgeous Pacific panoramas. It’s the perfect atmosphere for old friends and new families to come together.

Duke’s Malibu was inspired by the memory of the legendary Duke Kahanamoku and the benevolent values that he personified. This extraordinary Olympic athlete set numerous swimming records and is credited with popularizing the sport of surfing. In his twilight years, Duke served as Hawaii’s official “Ambassador of Aloha.” He also had a profound impact on the beach culture of Southern California, so Malibu is an ideal site for a restaurant in his honor.

The “aloha” spirit embraces guests as they’re welcomed through a private entrance and ushered into the Ocean Room. This lovely space has two walls of beachfront windows that are just steps away from the splashing surf. The other walls, paneled in the rare and valuable Hawaiian koa wood, give off a rich luster. In addition, doors open onto a balcony situated over the sand where guests may enjoy a quiet moment away from the festivities—perhaps to take in one of Malibu’s extraordinary sunsets. At Duke’s Malibu, you can create a casual celebration or transform the room into a stylish affair limited only by your imagination.

For more intimate celebrations, like bridal and baby showers, Duke’s Malibu can accommodate your group in its “Board” Room (as in surfboard). This private, oceanview room is located in the restaurant and seats 36. As with the Ocean Room, mahogany Chiavari chairs, a choice of linens in various colors, and votive candles are provided for your event.

Just as satisfying as the view, Duke’s coastal-inspired menus feature Hawaiian-influenced fresh fish and premium steaks, offered in both plated and buffet options.

When you desire to treat guests to an oceanfront experience, Duke’s Malibu is the ideal spot for a truly unique and memorable gathering.
