Matt Edmonds and Georgie Ormond have just opened Lucky Bar and Kitchen on Wilson St in Whanganui.

You may remember it from last year when it was a pop-up on the river down by the town bridge for about four months over summer.

Before that Lucky was a shop Georgie ran in Hunterville.

Now the couple are committing to making it a permanent bar, kitchen and live venue and being just one part of a city on the up.

Georgie and Matt want Lucky to fill a gap in Whanganui and offer the type of food and entertainment they say is needed but not currently available.

They opened quietly at the end of March and in this podcast they speak about their plans.

You can listen via the Soundcloud above and hopefully in the next few days you’ll be able to subscribe on iTunes.
