Hot Bird - Brooklyn

I have been passing by this funky little place for a few weeks now and never knew it was a bar till my room mates brought me there last night. From the outside it looks like a boarded up site but if you go around the corned you can see the dramatic entrance. There is a huge outdoor patio area with painted picnic benches. The interior has an old industrial feel to it with large garage doors, exposed ducting, industrial style metal pendant lights and old large machinery parts doted around the room. Even the small toilet reminded me of a toilet you might find in an old car repair place. 

Turns out it actually was a Auto Repair shop and the name for the bar came from a Fried Chicken shop that was in Brooklyn in the 80's. It was called Hot Bird and they had large advertisement around Brooklyn that still exist today, like the one on the building below. So the new owners of the bar obviously saw the the opportunity for some free advertising for their new place and opened there bar in the building next door to the large sign.
