    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

    Cozy bar and beer garden (+food truck), conveniently a little out of the way but still close to Fort Greene / Bed-Stuy / Atlantic Center. Friendly atmosphere w/ communal seating, good for groups.

    Tacos and whiskey selection are great - plenty of beer too - love the outdoor space and the interior is pretty cool with antique industrial machinery serving as a place to rest your glass

    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

    Beers and cocktails inside, tacos and tables outside. No children, bikes, dogs, or outside food allowed.

    Wonderful beer garden (that also does cocktails and has an indoor bar) in a slightly out of the way spot, making it less likely to be overrun by hordes of people. A favorite.

    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.

    Great outdoor space for drinking beer in the summer. Also, they make a great Kentucky mule.

    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.

    Beer and tacos. Enough said. $5 craft beers before 8pm on weekdays. Also the back patio is amazing and has a fire pit going when it's cold!

    The outdoor area is one among the best you can find in Brooklyn on a warm summer night. Snag a picnic table, impress all your friends.

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

    Blood orange pale ale is on tap. If you're a fan of magic hat #9, give this a whirl.

    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

    Large patio and smaller indoor area. BYO pizza from next door (also, BYO McDonald's from across the street).

    Not many better outside spaces for groups in BK. Solid drinks selection and a perfect bar to wind down at as it is never too crazy.

    My perfect bar. In the winter there's a firepit and in the summer you'll miss it.

    Leave the hatesters in the Burg and the Village and get real with some of Clinton Hill's finest folk. Great for meeting friends around the firepit on a spring evening.

    definitely a spot to take some friends--probably the standard for ambiance and setup for bars in Brooklyn.

    If for some reason you find yourself in nearby and it's FREEZING COLD, swing by and check out the outdoor fire pit with a bourbon old fashioned.

    Surprisingly happy with this neighborhood local. Great beers, ideal for a Summer's evening and not too crowded on a saturday night.

    Cool outdoor area to hang with a group. I don't think the taps are very clean though, two different draft beers I had tasted really bad.
