On Wednesday, March 13, 2019, city officials and construction project team members gathered to officially unveil the new glass walls for Loveluck, the new restaurant that will move into the former LOVE Park Welcome Center building.

The iconic building, often (fondly) referred to as the UFO or Flying Saucer, is being renovated by Bittenbender Construction. Loveluck will be a new restaurant from Valerie Safran and Marcie Turney, the team responsible for several restaurants on South 13th Street, and is scheduled to open this fall.
