Malibu, California 90265
We'd love it if you would mention that you found Duke's Malibu on the Here Comes The Guide website.
Why We Like This Place
Duke’s picturesque waterfront location, fun-loving yet professional staff, and fresh coastal cuisine will tempt you to celebrate on Malibu’s famous shores. This legendary restaurant and its private event spaces enhance all types of occasions—wedding ceremonies, receptions, rehearsal dinners, day-after brunches, and more—with gracious hospitality and breathtaking views. It’s the perfect atmosphere for old friends and new families to come together and create timeless memories.
Guests are greeted with a welcoming aloha spirit, and ushered through a private entrance into the versatile Ocean Room, which is well suited for a casual celebration or can easily be transformed into a beautiful setting for a stylish affair. This lovely space has two walls of beachfront windows that are just steps away from the splashing surf, and doors that open onto a balcony right over the sand where guests may enjoy a quiet moment away from the festivities—perhaps to take in one of Malibu’s extraordinary sunsets!
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 33. 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 are Duke’s coastal-inspired special event menus. They feature fresh fish and premium steaks, offered in plated, buffet, and family-style options.
When your heart’s set on treating friends and family to an oceanfront experience, Duke’s Malibu is the ideal spot for a truly unique and memorable gathering.
