Lets Get Luckie!

If you're visiting Atlanta, you have to grab a bite over at The Luckie Lounge. I had the opportunity of joining a friend in celebration of her birthday at this delicious kingdom. The menu consists of anything from burgers to filet mignon and sushi! I guess that's the reason they call it Luckie-cuz you're lucky to get all of this under one roof! The dessert menu wasn't shortstopping either..selections ranging from chocolate mousse to strawberry rhubarb pie and good house made cakes: carrot or coconut to name a few-yummy! Charm is also adjacent to Luckie, having a DJ lounge, magazine rack, and to-go options. Make sure you go and powder your nose because the bathroom is incredible! I never care too much about a restroom in a restaurant as long as it's sanitized, etc. but it is state of the'll see! Located directly across the street from The Georgia Aquarium in a space that once was a former auto parts warehouse off of Luckie St., you'll be coming back for more and feeling luckier every time!

Comprised of bright grapefruit, lotus flower, and undertones of tonka bean (never heard of that) and lovely amber, you're sure to be getting some suga from your sweetie. Enjoy, xo
