The LuckyNow some of us may have memories from the old Lucky Country but be prepared, not a skerrick of the old Lucky decor remains after its $6 million makeover. The Lucky is the result of years of renovations, peeling back what was once a dingy pub to uncover a beautiful heritage brick shell, which they have filled with a modern restaurant and bar.

What really stands out at The Lucky is the cavernous internal courtyard - it's like stepping inside Doctor Who's tardis - where did all this space come from? It's over three storeys tall and surrounded by towering exposed brick walls in all directions, I can only imagine this area will be awesome come sporting events like the World Cup and Grand Finals. It's a beer barn of epic proportions.

The menu in the restaurant is centred around an American BBQ theme - with plenty for the meat lovers including Beer Mopped Pulled Pork Shoulder, Glazed Lamb Ribs or Barbecue Dry Rubbed Black Angus Beef Brisket to name a few. There's also your usual pub grub to pick from and some American themed bar snacks like deep fried dill pickles, the ultimate mac 'n cheese, BBQ corn and chicken wings (of course).

Onto the bar and there are heaps of beers on tap to pick from and an extensive wine list featuring a mixture of local and international varieties. There's even accommodation upstairs with 29 boutique rooms. I told you this place is huge!

So go on, stop by have a beer and check out The Lucky!
