The Ample Hills Creamery ice cream chain has signed a lease to rent the building next to the former Pavilion Theater (the future Nitehawk Cinema Prospect Park), with plans to open in fall 2018.

The curved one-story building at 192 Prospect Park West fronts on Bartel-Pritchard Square and is located in the Park Slope Historic District Extension. It was constructed in 1921.

Ample Hills Creamery's owners, Brian Smith and Jackie Cuscuna, will renovate the interior to make it resemble a 1930s-era ice cream shop, which it had been in the 1930s. The ice cream parlor will occupy the portion of the building that has rooftop access.

This will bring Ample Hills' locations in Brooklyn to six (four permanent and two seasonal), in addition to having two permanent locations in Manhattan, one in Jersey City, and one in Walt Disney World.

The menu for the shops in Prospect Heights and Gowanus are posted here on Facebook.
