Sometimes a bar just can't shake those divey vibes no matter how much it dresses itself up - kind of like a farmer in a tuxedo. The Good Luck bar is loved and misunderstood by many, but it remains a solid neighborhood bar. It's a great place to go for a drink after catching a movie at the Vista around the corner. The tropical cocktails pack a boozy punch. The decor makes you feel like you're in a bad 70's film, but the staff is friendly, and the mood is low key. Snag a booth if you can.

I came here on a date and it was a really good time. There were a lot of people inside, but plenty of room for more since we were there pretty early. Not to be dismissed based on the outside. The atmosphere and service are excellent.

Great place to drink – The whole asian feel is there, the setup is nice.....away from the Hollywood traffic. Drinks are average, so are the prices. The have their own signature drinks. Good place to start the night.

Great Fun – All of the customers and bartenders are in a good mood at this bar. And who wouldn't be - with the gaudy decor and fun drinks, everyone has a good time without taking themselves too seriously.

One of my favorites – I really like this bar. The dark, asian inspired atmosphere is nice and welcoming. The people who go here are normal, and the drinks, especially off the special menu, are delicious. I've gone early and gotten a seat, which to me is the best way to do it, because otherwise it gets crowded. The only problem I have with it is there is only one stall in the women's bathroom, and there's always a line.

Am I in China? – Dark Room filled with red lanterns, oriental ceilings, comfy low leather seats and chinese quilted pillows, this place is worth a visit. From the outside it looks like nothing special, but once through the mysterious door, you enter into a world of pure imagination. Thumbs up to this place's interior decorator. The ultra-white bartenders and youthful crowd do give a gentle reminder that you are in Hollywood not oldtime Shanghai. Order "a Double" from their Chinese inspired fancy drinks menu, it comes in a bigger glass with more liquor for about $10. Hollywood prices, but no pressure, no silly "are you on the list" nonsense. Better Cleaner atmosphere than Formosa Cafe.

not sure it it's worth the wait – I waited patiently near 3 bartenders on a Friday night. 20 minutes after walking in and not being served or even glanced at, I walked out. Cute interior though.

best jukebox in america – i used to love good luck bar, despite the sometimes irritating parking situation, because of the amazing jukebox (al green, rolling stones, jackson 5), friendly bartenders, rad decor and eclectic crowd.. then the creepy bouncer made a pass at me and i'm scared to go back.. but i will, because i secretly love this bar. its close to everything.. there are always cute boys.. i feel like im in some kung fu movie from the 50's.. super fun.

better than a rabbit's foot. – there's something intimate and friendly about this usually packed place. not your typical [boring] hipster crowd, it attracts a diverse crowd and loud conversations with friends and strangers alike. i never leave here sober or lonely.

sit at the bar if you're one, two or three, in the den if you're with a group.

and the doorman is so handsome!

Great ambience, horrible service – The Good Luck Bar is one of my new favorite bars. The atmosphere is great and the fun drink menu sets it apart. Went here last night and it started out perfectly because my group got there early and secured an area in the loungey part of the bar. The service wasn't that great from the get go but as the hours ticked by and the place went from a little crowded to packed, it was impossible to get a drink. They were extremely understaffed (ridiculous to have two bartenders for the whole bar) and the staff that they had were slow and inefficient, too busy socializing with each other than tending to their customers. The atmosphere of the place made up for the poor service. Next time I go, I will make it a point to go early and move on before it gets packed.

Relaxing, unpretentious – I love this bar! I'm married and hate going to bars where the singles are all out and on display creating that uncomfortable pretentious vibe. This place is so kick-back and relaxed. It's a great hang out where you can listen to great music, have an intimate conversation with the one you love or just chill with a bunch of friends. The decor is Chinese and there's something calming about the place. We usually go see a movie at the Vista Theatre down the block. It's a great date place!
