Clocking in at just over a year, Juke Fried Chicken has announced they will be closing up their second location, Little Juke, in Vancouver’s West End.

Known as Little Juke, the smaller satellite of the popular fried chicken restaurant in Chinatown served up a similar menu to the original.

However, Juke’s owners aren’t walking away from the space. Instead, owners Justin Tisdall, Bryan Satterford, and Cord Jarvie are planning an as-yet revealed concept for the soon-to-be revamped space.

Little Juke will close its doors on Monday, September 22 before it is transformed into the next chapter for the restaurateurs.

“We want to extend a very sincere thank you to all of our fans who supported us at Little Juke,” said Tisdall. “Stay tuned — we can’t wait to change the dial and show everyone in Vancouver and beyond what we have in store for them.”

Juke also wants to remind fans that they are still going strong in Chinatown, and they still can get to you in the West End via delivery services. In fact, as an added bonus, Little Juke is offering free delivery on all orders placed via Foodora and DoorDash now until closing day.

Little Juke – and the mysterious concept-to-be – is located at 1074 Davie Street.
