A quirky bar that is styled somewhere between soda parlour, ice-cream shop and cocktail bar, Lucky Liquor is aptly named after the fact the bar carries just 13 types of alcohol.
A parlour-type seating area is located at the front of the space, think tiled linoleum floors and baby blue seats giving it the ice-cream shop vibe, which gives way to the bar itself. Tiled in white this area is where the drinks making takes place.
The bar stocks one of each of the following; whisky, rum, vodka, pisco, mezcal, rye, bourbon and bitters; two gins and three liqueurs = 13 and offers 13 cocktails on a menu which changes every 13 weeks.
Drinks here are balanced, fresh and tasty; mixed by convivial staff. A lovely gem of a bar, it's easy to while away time here.
