A night and day at Lucky Joe’s Sidewalk Saloon amid COVID-19

Among many businesses that have been forced to accommodate for the COVID-19 pandemic, Lucky Joe’s Sidewalk Saloon had to reimagine its approach to day and night bar life. According to their Instagram, Lucky Joe’s is a self-proclaimed old western Irish pub located in Old Town Square.

According to Lucky Joe’s employees, while the bar still has a steady flow of customers, the numbers do not come close to resembling what they were before the pandemic.


One of the various aspects of bar life specific to Lucky Joe’s that has been altered is that its signature peanut barrels can no longer be found throughout the restaurant for customers to take handfuls of as they please.
