Chat with Lucky 13 Staff

I got the opportunity to chat with the new owners Chris Bailey and Willy Berry, and learned even more about the Lucky 13 reopening.

I asked them: “What can we expect from the newly reopened Lucky 13?”
“We do want to keep Lucky 13 and its reputation the same but offer Better-quality ingredients and food options. We come from the Whiskey Bar downtown so we also are offering a full bar with specialty craft cocktails, a larger whiskey selection, a daily happy hour, and remaining open until 10pm (sun-thurs) and midnight (Fri/Sat). “

They elaborated on why they wanted to keep Lucky 13 the same (with some improvements) and it all comes down to a love for Boise and the staples that make it special:
“Lucky 13 has been in Boise for 33 years and there has been a massive influence of out of state businesses coming in and growing/evolving our city into something else. So, when we found out Lucky 13 was going up for sale, we jumped on it as we believe Lucky 13 is part of Boise’s fabric.”

It seams Lucky 13 was almost a goner, when up for sale, the new owners shared: “There were many other offers on the table when Lucky 13 went up for sale and to my knowledge a few were going to gut the building and completely change it into (something) else. A goal of ours with lucky 13 is to take the quality and experience to another level.”

I think you’ll agree with me that Lucky 13 is in good hands with the new management. Be sure to visit and let us know your thoughts on the old Boise staple reopening.

Final Thoughts on the Lucky 13 Re-Opening

Lucky 13 has been a staple in the Boise community, and I couldn’t be happier that this Boise pizza place is back open!

For years people out on the greenbelt for a bike ride or walk, have stopped in at Lucky 13 for a snack or a drink. The hot spot was always packed during the Shakespeare Festival as they are just 0.6 miles apart (an 11 minute walk according to Google maps).

And now we can look forward to the warmer months, sitting outside on their wonderful patio. While getting warm and cozy with a happy hour cocktail, group of friends, and an amazing pizza.

Let us know your Lucky 13 experiences, after all the months and years of small businesses closing. It’s time to celebrate the ones re-opening.
