    I'm always happy with hot bird. The interior is like a clean, comfortable, well-lit 1950s machine shop. That reclaimed cool vibe. Huge patio. Good cocktails. Good pour. Usually a good crowd.

    This bar boasts an outdoor fire pit, which makes its massive patio a welcome spot no matter how fierce the weather. Grab a few beers and gather 'round this rare and welcome bonfire. Read more

    Hot Bird's outdoor space, built in a former auto-body shop facing Atlantic Avenue, is best experienced on a sunny day, when you can crowd around picnic tables on the expansive patio and sip drafts. Read more

    They've got a decent selection of cocktails but the taco truck outside is really the best part. Great decor inside, very retro with a large patio outside and lots of benches for communal sitting.

    It's gotten a lot more manageable since they kicked out all the kids. Less toddlers to trip over, less free range parents to roll your eyes at. The beer selection is consistently well-curated.

    Hotbirb is Clinton Hill's own micro beer-garden. Just enough picnic tables outside for an intimately robust party and plenty of room inside too. Great craft beers and soon they'll have food too. New f

    Killer patio, but get there early if you want a table on a Saturday night. Starts filling up around 10 and can get a smidge sceney, but not a big bother. Also a great place for bday parties.

    Make sure you order from the "center" of the bar or else you get scolded at by Chris Angel.
