A Los Feliz institution is closing after 25 years.

The Good Luck Bar is a Chinese themed bar, inspired by the Yee Mee Loo Bar in Chinatown which closed in 1989. It’s the latest of the “neighborhood” bars that have closed in the last few years.

Elina Shatkin, LAist’s food editor, joins us to talk about The Good Luck Bar.
