In Bushwick, it’s another day, another bar. As The Burning Bush previously reported, the owners of Old Stanley’s have expanded their old man bar empire to the Myrtle-Broadway area with a new similarly themed bar called Chirpers. The difference between this one? It’s tailored to those with avian interests.
“Yeah, we just thought, you know, like, why not appeal to a neighborhood niche that never gets any love? The bird watchers. It’s not just for old people anymore,” commented bar owner Linden Barry, who was originally planning to call the establishment Young Betty’s, but later decided it sounded too generic and didn’t really want to go the cliche route of decorating with pin-up wallpaper and lamps.
So far, the bar’s target audience has been acting as birds of prey, flocking to Chirpers as though fresh bread crumbs have been thrown outside of it. “I never thought a bar designed fully toward my interests would be created in this area or in my lifetime. I’m super excited to get drunk and share my passion with other people,” remarked Birdy Fowl, a 34-year-old member of the National Audubon Society. She is especially fond of the Cockatiel Cork Dry Gin. Join her in finding your fellow bird enthusiasts at Chirpers.
