Disco Balls Out, Army Tents In: Opening Report from Churchill

The Brooklyn.

Last night was the official opening of Churchill, the new bar from the Double Dutch and Bloodhound guys, in the old home of the Transfer and the Bar on Church. In an effort to get straighter than its previous (awesome) inhabitants, the new bar is not a “gay bar.” If Blackbird is middle ground, then Churchill is super butched up. The space, previously occupied with poles and disco balls, is now home to training ropes on the ceiling, a pool table in back, and couches made from old Army tents. This is a WWII-inspired bar and its name comes not from the street it's on, but from from Winston Churchill. See, butch.
