Lucky Strike in Soho: doing things right since 1989

See also

If you happen to be in Soho, and are looking for quality bar food and a relaxed, frills-free place to have your favorite craft beer, a spot-on cocktail (poured with a generous, heavy hand), or amazing french fries, look no further than Lucky Strike.

There's no pretense in the air unlike so many other Soho establishments, and the regulars and walk-ins who frequent this bar are friendly by New York standards, and often can be fascinating conversationalists. It's the kind of place you can unwind, have a great meal with friends, and chat up intriguing and skilled bartenders, who have a rather eclectic and diverse appreciation of Music. So it's no wonder that Lucky Strike has survived in the ever changing New York City bar and restaurant scene since it opened its doors in 1989.

The Food

The food here is great. It has a French influence, and the pasta dishes are surprisingly excellent, (try the ravioli). You can't go wrong with the Grilled Salmon, it's cooked to perfection. Other winners include the classic Burger & Fries combo and the French Onion soup. And, if you're in the mood for something sweet, don't pass on the Crème Caramel, it's out of this world.

The Verdict

Lucky Strike is a great, low-key bar that's perfect for weekends in Soho. Its history is a clear testament to doing things right as it continues to offer a uniquely calibrated balance of ambiance, mixology, quality food and an interesting mix of patrons that will no doubt allow this place to continue to thrive.
