When I went to Lucky’s, I was in the mood for a low-key bar where I could just kick back, relax and open a beer with zero risk of aggressive music, massive crowds, long lines, etc. It was a little later on a Friday night (like 11:00pm) so I was skeptical that I’d find this kind of place in the heart of Wicker Park. But I did!
Lucky’s was everything I was in the mood for. Their beer selection was pretty good, though I ended up going with my go-to, Stella, instead of trying something new. What was more awesome was the fact that their kitchen was open until 1:00am. I couldn’t believe my luck! It had been a long, busy day and I had been so preoccupied that I had forgotten to eat dinner. So, the fact that I could order anything on the menu at a cool place (versus the late-night drive thru’s or pizza places that I loathe) was pretty sweet.
The server was really cool and the service was quick. Then again, it’s not like it was packed so who knows what it’d be like on a busy night. Anyway, I got wings and my friend got a pastrami sandwich. Personally, I wasn’t crazy about the pastrami sandwich but that’s probably because I’m just not a fan of pastrami. The wings were awesome. I did half buffalo and half cajun. The cajun was amazing. I highly recommend it.
If you’re out in Wicker Park looking for that perfect low-key, late-night eatery, I’d say this spot is worth a visit. It’s a fun place to just hang out and be yourself. I enjoyed it.
