Colorado Springs chef opening small venue for personal occasions | Arts & Leisure

Brother Luck, owners of Four by Brother Luck and Lucky Dumpling, will launch a new concept in June: The Studio, 332 E. Colorado Ave. It is located above Lucky Dumpling at 26 S. Wahsatch Ave. and is accessible via a flight of stairs west of the Lucky Dumpling building.

“This was a former social marijuana place,” he said. “When it became available, we decided to make it a small place for wine evenings, cooking classes, and high-end dinners with celebrity guest chefs. And here we can conduct employee training courses and hold employee meetings. “

He gutted the interior, raised the ceiling to expose the joists, laid a new floor, and added a small kitchen space.

“We can seat 20,” he said. “Steve (Kander, sommelier at Four from Brother Luck) will also be storing his wines here.”
