The Good Luck Club

March 8, 2012


So we are officially open. Open for lunch, open for dinner, open for cocktails, open for good times. The Good Luck Club is up and running and although it all still feels like a bit of a blur, it’s such a cool feeling to see it all shiny and new with it’s doors wide open (We actually opened Wolves almost at exactly the same time 2 years ago – March seems to be the month for us).



Two nights ago we had drinks and tasters with some friends. It was so very cool to see the shop all done up and full of people and everything ran smoothly, which was such a relief. I’m not going to lie I’m feeling a bit tired, Shane and I have been running around non-stop for the last few days, but it has definitely been worth it!

My favourite part of this whole thing has been taste testing the menu (I love food so much I would marry it if it wasn’t illegal/slash impossible) and designing the wallpaper with Shane. Yip I finally got my cats, sure they can’t breath or walk around and I can’t squeeze the bejeezers out if them, but who cares, they’re still mine. All mine. So have a look around and tell me what you think of the place – there are still 1 or 2 things that we still have to do, but we are almost there.

Hey, if you are in the area, the area being No 3. Corlett Drive, Illovo, come have a bite to eat and if you see me, please come say hello. We are open every day for lunch and supper. Closed sunday nights and Monday (the whole day). Awesome.
