If you've travelled down this stretch of Atlantic Avenue, you've seen the giant yellow sign that reads "Hot Bird, New York's Best BBQ." The local chicken joint closed down more than a decade ago, but the signs were never removed. One Prospect Heights bar is carrying on the mantle, though they've got beer instead of birds. Hot Bird planted themselves down directly below the notorious sign, turning an abandoned auto shop into a bar and making for a spacious spot to enjoy their 12 brews on tap and excellent selection of bourbons. Despite its industrial past, there's nothing ramshackle about this room. They've got sleek wooden floors, a warm yellow lighting scheme, and spankin' new garage doors that open into the bar's outdoor seating area. This strip of Atlantic Avenue is pretty desolate, so it's good news that the bar plans to add an outdoor food truck with grub by Allan Harding. Although you still can't get an entire hot bird in this hood, chicken will certainly be on the menu.
