Churchill's Hideaway is located at 5501 NE 2nd Avenue in Miami, FL. Often called the CBGB's of the south, Churchill's has a rich background in the south Florida music scene dating back to 1979. The club is not only a staple for south Florida musicians, but also a historical landmark for tourists and music enthusiasts alike. No other live music venue in South Florida has a vibe, aesthetic, history, or staff more suitable to host this year's event, and we couldn't be more grateful to have such a special establishment in our city.
DRIVING - Coming south on I-95 into Miami: take exit 6A for NW 62nd St. toward Martin Luther King Jr Blvd. Make a left onto NW 62nd St and drive 0.9 miles. Take a right onto NE 2nd Ave and drive 0.4 miles to destination on left.
Coming north on I-95 into Miami: take exit 4B to merge onto I-195 E toward Miami Beach. Drive 1.4 miles then take exit 2B toward US-1/Biscayne Blvd. You will merge onto NW 36th St from exit and drive 0.2 miles. Take a right onto NE 2nd Ave and drive 1.1 miles to destination on right.
Please be advised that Churchill's parking is limited and carpooling is highly recommended and encouraged. We'll be saving a lot of the parking area for all the bands and their gear so please carpool to avoid parking complications.
TRANSIT - Biscayne Blvd supplies many bus routes for those commuting via public transit. Those coming from out of town unfamiliar with the neighborhood are advised to not travel alone. Even though the area in the past 5 years has changed with gentrification, caution should still be taken. Your best bet would be to carpool (which we strongly recommend because of parking issues) or use a taxi service.
