Good news, clubland folks. Miami's former eclectic hot spot the Pawn Shop has announced a definitive opening date for an upgraded West Palm Beach locale. It's all going down on March 6. Back in November, we reported that the former downtown Miami dance club and celebrity haunt was reopening and making a move (huge yellow school bus et al.) to 219 Clematis St. -- occupying the previous site of Dr. Feelgoods. Although at the time Pawn Shop's operating partner, Paul Brown, told us he expected to have the club open by February, it seems a couple of weeks' delay will be worth the wait.
Besides the celebrated school bus and the old Pan Am fuselage that decorated the interior of the former Pawn Shop site, West Palm Beach's version will include new additions -- including a life-sized vintage Ferris wheel from the 1950s, a DJ booth designed out of a Mack truck, and a 1950s Rambler fitted for the VIP section.More »
