The Good Luck Bar has closed its doors. We must save the bar's neon sign!
Moving the Good Luck neon sign to the Museum of Neon Art will require two sign cranes, a four-person crew, and sign trucks for removal and transportation. With the sign close to a major intersection and multiple powerlines, it will be a tough sign to access and remove.
I've sat at Good Luck's bar many a time, in the dim ambiance of red and black lacquer walls, and knocked back more than my fair share of Yee Mee Loo cocktails. Personally, I never want to see Good Luck fade away which is why I'm starting this Go Fund Me program to support the Museum of Neon Art (MONA, www.neonmona.org
) to move the Good Luck neon and bulb sign from its perch above Hillhurst and Hollywood Boulevard and into the museum's collection of historic signs.
The Good Luck neon will join MONA's other restored Hollywood signs such as the 40-foot-long Grauman's Chinese Theatre dragon and Hollywood Brown Derby rooftop signs. The museum celebrates neon art and signs across the country, but we can't let a beloved local icon such as Good Luck fall to a wrecking ball.
Please join me in donating to the Museum of Neon Art for deinstalling and transporting the Good Luck sign. Any funds over the requested amount will go towards the museum’s sign preservation fund. Please don't let this icon wind up in a dumpster! Let's save it with the Museum of Neon Art!
