Lucky’s Charm, a St. Patrick’s Day Themed Pop-Up Bar, Opens in Rittenhouse

Take a jello shot and forget how sad you are that the parade has been cancelled.

Rob Wasserman (Rouge, Audrey Claire, Twenty Manning Grill) is partnering with the team at Happy Rooster to open Philly’s first-ever St. Patrick’s Day-themed bar, Lucky’s Charm. The former Topper’s Spa and Salon space at 117 South 19th Street has been transformed into an “enchanted Irish forest” with a unicorn mural and a balloon rainbow arch. Lucky’s Charm has two full bars, a dance room, a selfie station and themed food and drink menus.

The pop-up is moving forward as scheduled, despite coronavirus chaos and the cancellation of the city’s annual St. Patrick’s Day parade. The team says there are hand sanitizer dispensers throughout the space.

Snacks include Lucky Charm cereal treats dipped in chocolate (duh), soft pretzels, hot dogs, boozy cookies and milk, plus popcorn in flavors like corned beef, pickle and white cheddar. Prices range from $2 to $7. The cocktail menu is designed by Rouge general manager Kevin Hoagland and runs the gamut from themed cocktails to hard seltzer. They will also sell Pot O Gold jello shots which, frankly, sound like a terrible idea. Scroll down for the drink menu.

Lucky’s Charm will open Friday, March 13th and 5 p.m., pending final approval from the city. After that, it will be open Fridays 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays 12 p.m. to 11 p.m., and Monday through Thursday 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. On St. Patrick’s Day, the bar will be open 12 p.m. to 11 p.m., and the pop-up will close Sunday, March 22nd.
