Club Lucky dates back to 1937, when the Bucktown bar was attached to a VFW hall. Now the hall has become a dining room serving up big helpings of chicken vesuvio, homemade pastas and other Italian dishes. But the 1940s-style remains, with the lounge area featuring the original bar, tin ceiling and aluminum and glass light fixtures mirrored after the ones in the Empire State Building. The bar is best known for its martinis, served with olives hand-stuffed with blue cheese, anchovies or pimento.
