What: Indoor/Outdoor Bar
When: Weekday Evenings; Weekends
Why: Proof that hipsterdom exists beyond Williamsburg, Hot Bird satiates the dive bar needs of an older, wiser, classier set. Despite its size, the gigantic backyard is always humming with good conversation, and makes for a better- looking distraction than the cacophony on Atlantic Ave.
Hot Bird, 546 Clinton Avenue, (at Atlantic Avenue); 718-230-5800.
