Named after Newport Beach’s most celebrated former resident, actor John Wayne, Duke’s Place creates an unparalleled feast for the senses. This waterfront restaurant and upscale lounge in Newport Beach offers specialty cocktails, delicious entrées, wonderful live jazz, and breathtaking views of Newport Harbor.
Our menu combines culinary delights from the resort’s fine dining restaurant, First Cabin Restaurant, with a few pub-like dishes. Savor the ahi tuna tartar or enjoy the more casual seared Maryland crab cakes. Additional menu items include filet mignon sliders, a grilled carmelized onion burger, classic chicken Caesar salad, New York strip steak sandwich and many more.
However, not everyone comes for the American food at our Newport Beach restaurant and lounge. Strong drinks, nightly live jazz, and the large dance floor lure those who have dined elsewhere. Take in nightly performances by acclaimed jazz musicians, where you can ease into a mellow mood and enjoy a wonderful evening filled with dancing. Located inside Balboa Bay Resort, this upscale bar and lounge in Newport Beach is the ideal spot to unwind at the end of the day or gear up for a night out on the town.
