Churchill's Pub Becoming a Strictly 21-and-Over Club Under New Ownership


Sorry, kids.

Local punk landmark Churchill's Pub, a longtime haven for 18-and-up shows, will no longer be letting anybody except drinking-age adults through the door.

It's been only three weeks since founder and owner Dave Daniels completed the pub's sale. And many Miami promoters, scene figures, and band members are interpreting this grownups-only policy as an omen of increasingly drastic changes.

UPDATE Churchill's new owners have reversed positions, already abandoning their plans for a21-and-over policy.
