Churchill's Set to Reopen

Remember Churchill's? It was a famous Savannah pub featured in the movie Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. It burned down about a year and a half ago in an electrical fire. Now the owner is getting ready to reopen a brand new Churchill's at a different location.

The new pub on Bay Street will be much bigger than the last. There will be three stories, and the famous 22-foot bar will be replaced by an even bigger one, 34 feet.

Owner Andy Holmes says it's taken a while, but he's finally ready to open the doors. "We are more than ready, we are ready to go," he said. "We feel like half our family disappeared so we're looking forward to getting them back."

The new Churchill's will also have a roof-top terrace for dining. They hope to be open by Christmas.
