"A classic Purgatory dive bar, marinated in the blood, sweat and urine of drunken laborers for over a century. A 'Hidden gem' and 'neighborhood secret' that is in all the guidebooks."
―GTA IV Manual Description

Lucky Winkles is a bar featured in Grand Theft Auto IV.

Description Edit

Located at Galveston Avenue and Hell Gate in Purgatory, Algonquin, Liberty City in Grand Theft Auto IV, Lucky Winkles is probably owned by the Irish Mob. Lucky Winkles shares the same interior as the Steinway Beer Garden, down to the portrait of Derrick McReary near the door to the toilets.

Strangely, when you first enter the bar, the bar icon on the radar never shows up. Just as the Steinway Beer Garden, Blarneys Stout is served here.

When on a date or hanging out with friends, it will show up on the radar as a bar, but the player can also avoid the yellow marker and walk right into the door to play darts. Strangely enough, the darts icon does not show up on the radar either. However, in later installments such as The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony, the darts icon shows up when entering the bar.
