    About Hot Rod Cafe

    Hot Rod Cafe was started in 2005 by Rod Cornish, a native of New London, who returned from New York City after he left Merril Lynch to pursue more fun and satisfaction. He spent time in Europe and upon his return decided to stay in New London and open the kind of place that he would like to go to.

    He went to local bartending and culinary schools and worked in several local establishments learning the business before opening Hot Rod Cafe. The business has grown each year specializing in wings and excellent customer service.

    In 2009 an opportunity arose to relocate out of the small space it occupied to a space just down the street from its original location, 114 Bank Street complete with a water view deck, state of the art kitchen and private party facility. It was a perfect fit.  Extensive renovations were done, creating a bigger more modern space with two floors of fun.   The main Bank Street level space with New Orleans style windows that fold open to create an open air feel, a new air conditioning system and new bar.
