James Hook & Co. is still a family business managed by four siblings of the third generation of the Hook Family.

Lucky's Lounge has no sign out front. It's a retro-hip Sinatra style supper club with great food, classic drinks and cool tunes. Descending the stairs into Lucky's is like stepping through a portal into a swinging hipster lounge straight out of the '50s. Dim red lighting washes a vinyl-upholstered dining room, which is separate from the long narrow bar.
