After two years of deep fried prosperity at The Brightside, the crew have picked another Brisbane music venue to bunker in with.

Two years after first setting up shop in Fortitude Valley, Lucky Egg is spreading its wings. Not content with slinging juicy poultry from their spot outside The Brightside, the fried chicken joint is headed for West End, with a new store set to open on Saturday, July 15.

With their first digs attached to a music venue, Lucky Egg is taking the 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it' approach to their expansion, setting up shop at Good Time Bar at Max Watts. Their opening will coincide with the bar's relaunch, with Good Time under the new management of Zac Gould, formerly of Black Bear Lodge.

Lucky Egg owner Jacob Knauth is adopting the same mindset when it comes to his menu, too, with all of his crispy chicken favourites making the jump to the new location. That means three types of burgers, baskets of wings and buttermilk-coated pieces, and whole birds — however, there will be a few fresh additions. Open from lunch until late, and offering both dine-in and takeaway, the new store will also serve up noodle bowls, fried chicken share plates and lighter, healthier options.

Lucky Egg West End will open at Good Time Bar, Max Watts, 23 Boundary Street, West End on July 15. For more information, head to their Facebook page.
