The people of Prospect Heights are well familiar with Hot Bird, only they know it as a long-extinct chicken restaurant whose bright-yellow signage hung over Atlantic Avenue until 2016. Enterprising bar owner Frank Moe, of Fort Greene’s now-closed Rope, took advantage of the brand recognition to turn an old auto shop right under one of the old signs into Hot Bird 2.0, a neighborhood bar whose greatest asset is its spacious patio. Surrounded by high walls—a must, seeing as it borders the bustling Atlantic Avenue—and populated by long picnic benches and a fire pit, it's reminiscent of Williamsburg’s Union Pool, only minus the music-venue part and plus an indoor bar space that resembles a low-rent version of a Keith McNally restaurant.


During winter, Hot Bird closes an hour early.
