Dux Central

The Dux is a Christchurch hospitality legend. Whether you experienced good times at the original site in the Arts Centre or are new to the Dux Family, you’ll feel instantly at home at the new Dux Central, whether it’s relaxing inside or in the stunning, two-level courtyard.

Dux Central offers a four-bar hospitality hub in the heart of the central city rebirth which has something for everyone. Their Brew Bar offers over 200 bottled craft beers and 12 tap options (including their own famous brews), and smacks of a London pub – only they serve their beer cold (as is only proper)!

Their passion for wine is expressed in The Emerald Room, which has been perfectly described as “high end, intimate and slick”. This intimate, opulent and elegant space brings the “deluxe” to Dux Central, with plush green velvet furnishings, gold accents and mood lighting, and is the ideal space for a catch up with friends.

The Poplar Social Club provides an intimate speakeasy cocktail atmosphere, with 2016 Bartender of the Year Charles and friends providing for all of your needs. Even if you don’t know what you want, Charles will find out your flavour preferences and mix you the perfect drink.
