Lucky Cheng’s Might Take Over the Former Living Room Space on Ludlow

It’s been a rough few months (nay, years), but looks like Lucky Cheng’s is making a solid comeback.

The cabaret – popular for bachelorette parties – had relocated to Times Square from its longtime First Avenue perch back in 2012. It was never quite the same. Two years later, owner Hayne Suthon passed away of breast cancer, and her venue followed suit. Or so everyone thought. Lucky Cheng’s rebounded, and paired up with The DL over the summer. This iteration currently boasts a separate entrance on the Ludlow side, recently-installed canopy, and requisite mural.

But the venue may soon achieve independence anew. Just a few blocks north.

According to the November Community Board 3 agenda, Lucky Cheng’s is currently gunning for 154 Ludlow Street. This address was, of course, the ten-year home of the Living Room, which just reopened in Brooklyn last week. The venue currently seeks a full liquor license in a heavily saturated area, so it’ll certainly be an uphill battle with both CB3 and the State Liquor Authority. Other than the obvious, not much else is known at the moment.

We’ll have more information on the Lucky Cheng’s reboot in the coming days.
