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.
Opt for a house specialty called "Fist of Fury". Instead of buying small size, get a large; its more expensive but is more economical than is buying two regular size drinks. Also arrive before 10PM to avoid a long wait to get in.
Orient Express – You walk through the door and you feel like you have been transported to somewhere... Reminds me of Chinese restaurants growing up (all had the word "golden" or "dragon" somewhere in the name). A great trip, nonetheless!
Welcome to Ambiance – Love the tiny lamps on the tables; love the red Chinese deco everywhere. This place has character! OH! And, the drinks are pretty good too!
Orient Express – Along with a great mix of music ranging from David Bowie to X, good luck's asian motif is done up to the "T" from the dragon stirers to the lights on the wall, but with all the good luck in the air it doesnt take a fortune to get a great drink, try the mai-tais!
Hispter Bar – I've been a regular in this bar for a couple of years. This is where all the trendoids go, one of the best bars in Silverlake. Great music, drinks, ambiance & service! Order a Hong Kong Bong or a Good Luck and be sure to say hi to Richard when you walk in there, he created the place..
chinois fab – I came here on a Wednesday night and loved, loved, loved the 60's Asian aesthetic. Very "World of Suzie Wong." Bartender was fine, drinks were good but the atmosphere is really the star. Not sure if I would be happy on a weekend with all the other scenesters but I can definitely recommend it for a chic mid-week hang.
Lucky Us – Got to Good Luck late one night. Very packed. Nice set up. Cool Lanterns. We got a huge drink so i'm assuming it's was a "Good Luck." Took a while to get it. Lucky to get a table because you're tossed around when you're standing. Would have liked to get there earlier to have a seat in the back. Seems like everyone checks you out on the way to the bathrooms. As with most bars like this, the fun is in the crowd you bring.
Romantic? – Not sure if this is exactly a romantic place, being how packed it is. The back room is cool, if you're lucky enough to get a seat. The drinks are potent but pricey. I've always found the bartenders friendly, in that "I'm cooler than you" kind of way. But I still like the place. My friends from NY love it.
