If you like a tasty microbrew to wash down a good ol' fashioned barbecue or a burger, then Lucky Devils is the place for you.
Located at 6613 Hollywood Blvd., Lucky Devils is a lively hotspot that offers artisan burgers, house-smoked barbeque ribs, a variety of handcrafted beers and a great happy hour deal.
Lucky Devils prides itself on making everything in-house and from scratch. According to the owner, who just so happens to be named Lucky, the bar uses only the finest ingredients in their dishes. The health-conscious will relish in the fact that dishes are constructed from organic and locally grown vegetables, hormone-free meats and trans fat-free oils.
The kitchen serves a variety of dishes such as char-grilled pizzas ($ 9.50-$12.50), hickory smoked baby back ribs (1/4 rack slow smoked 7 hours) ($7.77), 100 percent grass fed beef burgers with five-pepper and green tomato relish and ‘super secret sauce’ ($7.95) and Liege waffles from Belgium topped with Tahitian vanilla bean frozen custard and salted Chimay beer caramel ($7.50).
‘The Lucky Seven’ happy hour is from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays. Specials include $4 off select handcrafted premium drafts and $1 off premium bottled beer. There is also a variety of food specials including char-grilled margherita pizza ($7.77), Kobe chili cheese sweet potato fries ($7.77), jalapeño cheddar cheese fries ($5), beer battered onion rings ($6.50) and barbecue sliders (2 for $5).
It is not unusual for Lucky Devils to bring in new beers. In 2011, management was pleased to announce collaboration with Brewery Ommegang from Cooperstown, NY, which produces Belgian-style beers. Several of the Ommegang beers that the bar has on tap are Triple Perfection, Chocolate Indulgence, Belgian Pale Ale Hennepin, White The Abbeye Ale Three, and Philosophers.
In addition to the Ommegang selections, the bar serves an international selection of beer such as Craftsman Monkey See Monkey Do Double IPA, Anderson Valley Oatmeal Stout and Lucifer Pale Ale.
In addition to beer, Lucky Devil serves a variety of red, whites and sparkling wine (average price $7.50 per glass). A full menu of mixed drinks is available as well. For the non-alcohol drinkers, delicious organic free trade ice teas ($2.25 with free refills) as well as lemonade ($3) and bottled water ($1.50 - $3) is available. Also on the drink menu are bottled Sprecher Root Beer ($3.50 -voted No. 1 by The New York Times) and bottled Bundaberg Ginger Beer ($3).
The bar’s exterior welcomes you with a big red devil, grinning from the awning above. The inside has long wooden bar and stool-style seating, decorative beer taps and tables and chairs placed throughout the room.
Various pictures of “Lucky Devil” pop up in the corners of the room and television screens are mounted above several of the booths. The back bar features a wide variety of microbrews on tap and a glass fridge full of exotic bottled beers.
Above the bar is a sign that reads, “Everybody has to believe in something…I believe I’ll have another drink.”– W.C. Fields.
There is a red-lit hue to the atmosphere inside and the walls are a mix of red and white paint and exposed wooden blocks.
Outside, a patio with red chairs and tables provide an excellent place to grab a burger and some fresh California air. The people watching from the patio never gets old and scoring a seat during happy hour is a must.
Lucky Devils attracts a hefty dose of regulars who can’t get enough of the kitchen’s special blends of barabecue seasonings and those who love a good beer. Tourists pop in for burgers and fries and happy hour regulars snag bar stool seats.
Weekends bring in bar hoppers and people often begin their night of traveling from one nightspot to another by filling up on one of Lucky Devils’ many menu delicacies.
