My daughter and son in law took Lynn and I to a great place near South Boston on our recent trip there called Lucky's Lounge. Lucky's sports a self concious but sincere and genuine speakeasy/rat pack vibe with it's non descript entrance (no signage) black and whites of Old Blue Eyes, Sammy, Dino, etc. on the wall. There are two sides to the bar, one resembling more of a well lit diner (calling to mind the Nighthawks painting by Edward Hopper), the other side was more of a traditional bar/lounge with minimal lighting, cocktail waitresses and the like. I had a full bodied Manhattan, while Lynn had a vodka martini. The feel there was great and our waitress was charming and resembled a youthful Madonna with her platinum blonde hair and charming gap in her front teeth. We hope to return to try some of the brunch, lunch, dinner offerings and maybe experience another great Manhattan in Boston.
