The Dux has a long and strong history in Christchurch, so much so that we defy you to find any Christchurch local over the age of 30 that doesn’t have a story about being at “The Dux”. It is truly a Christchurch icon, and it is what makes us who we are.
The Dux that we are talking about is the Dux de Lux which, from 1978 until February 2011, was situated in the Christchurch Arts Centre.
Dux de Lux included a Seafood and Vegetarian Restaurant, Brewery Bar (complete with onsite brewery) Music Venue, and Functions venue. In addition to these were our two famous large courtyards synonymous with “beers and food in the courtyard”.
