It was a sad day when former East Village drag spot Lucky Cheng's closed down its Times Square iteration last month. But it seems the club will live again, in pop-up form on the Lower East Side—and they're currently shopping around for a more permanent spot.
The gang'll be moving its cabaret into Delancey Street lounge The DL, with 65-seat performances taking place Wednesdays through Saturdays on the lounge's second floor. Weekday shows start at 7:30 and run $40 a person, while Friday and Saturday seatings are at 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., and run $50 a person. Bedford & Bowery first reported the news, and the venue told us today that the three-course dinner and show will be "the same as before," They'll also be hosting a relaunch party this Wednesday.
The new Lucky Cheng's will be run by the daughter and ex-husband of the late Hayne Suthon, who owned the club before succumbing to cancer in June. They are in the process of looking for a new permanent location, after they were reportedly pushed out of their midtown spot by the landlord. You can reserve a dinner seat at the pop-up by calling 212-995-5500.
