A striking, stunning and relaxed bar for lunch, dinner and drinks - just off Grafton Street.


New York meets Dublin

From the same team that brought you The Bridge 1859; Noel Anderson, Jamie Heaslip, Dave Kearney, Rob Kearney and Sean O'Brien are the proud owners of Lemon & Duke. With the style and class of a Manhattan cocktail bar and the comfort and craic of an Irish pub, Lemon & Duke is a glimpse New York City in the heart of Dublin.

Lemon & Duke is a bright and spacious bar, perfect for a morning coffee or weekend brunch, evolving seamlessly into a late night venue, perfect for dinner followed by drinks and dancing.

Lemon & Duke's Bar

Lemon & Duke proudly joins The Bridge 1859 with fresh unpasteurised Pilsner Urquell from a unique tank system. Our drinks offering has been carefully selected to ensure a diverse collection of drinks, catering for everyone. Together with a large collection of draught and bottle beers, we have designed a bespoke cocktail list with everything from charming classics to unique flavourful creations. And if you don't fancy a drink, you've come to the right place. We carry a range of non-alcoholic wines, spirits and beers so you can always enjoy a drink at Lemon & Duke. The bar boasts a stylish interior with gleaming copper and a bright mirrored back drop that showcases our range of spirits. Lemon & Duke is perfect for the most memorable parties and nights out.

Something For Everyone

Lemon & Duke offers something for everyone ranging from your classic draught and premium wines and spirits to non-alcoholic beers and cocktails.

Our team has carefully curated a quirky concoction list which has something for everyone - from twists on Sours to old school Swizzles. The cocktail menu heavily focuses on fresh produce and a symphony of different ingredients.


Meet Our Head Chef

Our head chef Vasile Gritunic uses fresh, local produce to create menus that borrow heavily from both European and Asian cuisine.

For breakfast and brunch you can rely on Lemon & Duke to provide your classic favourites.

Lunch consists of high quality gourmet sandwiches with bakery-fresh bread alongside healthy salads, select meats and the freshest fish.

Our Evening menu draws from our lunch and brunch menu with added sustenance for hearty dinner options. Whether it be a classic eggs benedict or a great steak, there is an option for everyone.

Then, to finish, try one of our homemade decadent desserts. Sigh. All our courses offer dishes that cater for vegetarian, vegan and coeliac diets.

Enjoyed an evening in the Lemon & Duke last night. Booked an outdoor table at 7pm for 6 people. Plenty of space. Outdoor heaters. Unfortunately 8 people actually turned up. I totally respect the restaurant for not allowing the table increase to 8. I hadn't realised that even outdoor dining has a limit of 6 per group. 3 of our group left as a result, as unfortunately the Lemon and Duke couldn't accommodate them at another table in close proximity. However it didn't ruin our evening. We just adjusted it. We would highly recommend the Cesar Salad and the burger. Both were delicious and plentiful. Great selection of wine by the glass. Great selection of IPA. Our waitress was lovely. Very good compliance with Covid regulations. I will definitely book again. Thank you.
