The venerable dive bar and music venue Hank’s Saloon, which vacated its longtime home on Atlantic and Third avenues last month, reopened on Monday within the Hill Country Food Park at 345 Adams St. in Downtown Brooklyn.

A grand opening is scheduled for Feb. 2, featuring music from a band called the New York Fowl Harmonic, according to the Brooklyn Paper.

“We’re just trying to see what the neighborhood wants, how we can make it better for everyone in a new neighborhood,” owner Julie Ipcar told the Brooklyn Paper. “I’m sure we will have some of the regulars in here from the old place.”

The old Hank’s was known for its walls being papered with stickers from bands who played there, and Ipcar hopes that bands that play at the new location will do the same. There will be some differences, however — the new Hank’s has a capacity of 150 people, twice that of the old location, the Brooklyn Paper reported.

While patrons will be able to enter Hank’s through the food hall, a separate entrance on Adams Street will be available once the hall closes at 8 p.m. Ipcar says Hank’s plans to open a kitchen as well.
