Lucky Cheng’s Outta Luck in Scoring 154 Ludlow Street

That red line through Lucky Cheng’s on the Community Board 3 agenda is permanent. Apparently the drag bar is no longer in the running for 154 Ludlow Street, which has been vacant since the Living Room vacated the premises last year. The landlord reportedly backed down from the deal at the last minute.
General Manager Richard Huguenot told DNAinfo last week that Lucky Cheng’s is now searching for the ideal 4,000 square foot home that can house about 150 people. They want to stay on the Lower East Side, where it all began back in 1993. With the new space would apparently come a new format – circus acts, burlesque, contortionists, and aerialists alongside its signature drag show.
Until a new space is secured, however, Lucky Cheng’s will continue to operate its pop up location at the DL.
154 Ludlow had been occupied by the Living Room during the last decade. That music venue just reopened across the river in Brooklyn.
