Birdies in Five Points closing permanently

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Birdies located in the historic Five Points area of Jacksonville told Action News Jax Thursday they are permanently closing as a bar and nightclub.

Last week, Birdies was forced to shut its doors after Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida announced the temporary 30-day closure of bars and nightclubs in the state to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

The tough decision to close was made because the business said it could no longer afford to stay closed any longer.

Birdies said it will continue selling alcohol packages for the time being, for pickup or delivery.
