Heavy Woods

50 Wyckoff Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11237

Heavy Woods is a bar and restaurant located in Bushwick, Brooklyn and established in 2012. Serving cocktails, 14 draught beers, beer & shot combos and Tchoup Shop's insanely delicious Cajun grub.

What year did you open your business and why?
We opened Heavy Woods in 2012. We felt our area could use low priced, good quality food and drinks in a neighborhood bar with an atmosphere that was inviting to all types of people.

How have real estate pressures impacted your business in the last 10 years?
Real estate pressures have greatly impacted us and everyone in the neighborhood. There’s a lot more stress now than there was when we started. We hear stories all the time of other businesses succumbing to financial pressures and having to close their doors because they can’t afford the increases in rent. You have to be really smart about how you negotiate your lease. The chains can afford to pay higher rent, but the neighborhood really loses that mom and pop charm that we (hopefully) provide.

What project do you plan to use the Love Your Local grant funding to implement?
We are going to spend our grant money on a new sign and storefront work. We are very excited about that; we really want to stand out in a growing field. We also want to work on the comfort of our seating by adding new booths. We are also going to upgrade the fire safety system in our kitchen.
