Lucky Strike has closed its bowling alley bar near Lincoln Road, leaving us with the mystery of what's to come next. Yesterday, Miami.com reported that Trader Joe's is "eyeing that spot," however the previous manager at Lucky Strike mentioned that Pottery Barn may be moving in. When Miami New Times called to confirm, the folks over at Trader Joe's stated that a move there wasn't in their two year plan, however Curbed Miami, our real estate-savvy sister blog, commented that that doesn't necessarily mean it's not scheduled, there just hasn't been a lease signed.
Currently Pottery Barn is located just a block away on Lenox and Lincoln Road. Logically that would mean the homey furniture store would be closing on the main road and moving just off of Lincoln Lane, making it one of the first major retailers to move there in a long, long time, with the exception of Macy's. But, alas, these are all assumptions. Nothing's set in stone, but if you've got any tips on what's to come, shoot them over through our handy tipline.
