Hoot’s bar hits ‘The Corner’ in Corktown

Hoot’s on the Avenue bar and restaurant opened recently at “The Corner” of Michigan and Trumbull, across the street from old Tiger Stadium in Corktown. Located in the former Shelley’s on the Avenue, Hoot’s is attracting, “lots of old customers and lots of new ones, too,” says co-owner Kim DeRidder.

Hoot’s offers homemade soups, a variety of salads and sandwiches, burgers, and fresh fish. “We bake our own ham and turkey every day,” states DeRidder. Hoot’s is focused on affordability, with daily dollar drink specials offered and no food item priced over $7.95.

DeRidder was focused on re-opening Hoot Robinson’s, located just one block north of her new bar, when Shelley’s came on the market. Now that she owns both, she’s not certain what she will do with the old Hoot’s, but one thing is for certain: “I will continue to invest money in Corktown. I love it here.”
