Lucky's Last Chance to open in Queen Village

The future Lucky's Last Chance bar is now operating as Kennett, 848 S. Second St.

The Manayunk bar/burger specialist Lucky's Last Chance has a deal on the table to open a second location, in Queen Village.

Chris Barnes, who with partners Mike Gartner and Sandra Barnes opened Lucky's in 2011, across from the now-shuttered Kildare's, said Lucky's would set up at 848 S. Second St.

Pending transfer of the liquor license, that bar is now operating as Kennett. It previously was Lyon's Den.

Barnes said the new Lucky's would be similar to the original.  The PB & Bacon burger - which is topped with creamy peanut butter, American cheese, and bacon with a side of grape jelly  - is an unexpected stroke of genius.

Also: The neighborhood soon will get Royal Izakaya (782 S. Second St.), a Japanese izakaya.
