Happy Go Lucky

This doorway, with solid artificial curtains, is an odd thing to find on London’s Drury Lane. The reds and golds reminded me of the extravagantly-decorated restaurant at the end of the road, but then I noticed the name over the door!
Happy Go Lucky!
Funeral parlour!

Gothic style doorway on Drury Lane, London, March 2021

But it’s ok, just the weird sense of humour of the owners of the Sarastro restaurant – this is the staff entrance and office. Let’s just hope it’s not also the customer exit!

  1. Oh my gosh! This is such an ornate prank on passerbys; and so in keeping with the restaurant’s theming (I oogled at the Google images).


  2. I think you need to check it out sometime and then tell us more. In the meantime, what a cool and quirky find! I do like a sense of humor and the owners seem to have one.



  3. I’ve eaten there a few times. The food is OK but the atmosphere is great and it does attract some very odd characters. Worth it for a fun evening if you don’t want fine-dining and like a giggle with your waiter. And you can go there alone as there is one long table with singles can sit and join other people.


  4. I think you’d have to try it. I mean, as long as it’s not a funeral parlor 😏

    It’s an amazing entrance. Thanks for sharing it for Thursday Doors.
