No late liquor ? No club, Button owner saysBY WANDA DeMARZO

The sounds of rock-and-roll will not blare from the legendaryButton South anytime soon.

Hallandale Beach city commissioners last week voted againstgranting club owner Joe Naimi an extended liquor license thatwould allow him to sell alcohol from 2 to 6 a.m.

"They’re crazy,’’ Naimi said. "We put Hallandale on the map backin the ’80s, and they don’t want us here. It’s Hallandale’s loss,because I plan to lease the property out to anyone who wants it.’’

Commissioners voted unanimously against granting the ButtonSouth an extended liquor license. With that, Naimi said, the ButtonSouth is a thing of the past. He will not open the club and he willnot sue the city.

"The Button South will not be coming back to Hallandale Beach,’’Naimi said.

Naimi opened the Button South at 100 Ansin Dr. in 1986. Prior tothat, the club, off Hallandale Beach Boulevard in the shadow ofInterstate 95, had already been an institution as the Agora. TheButton South closed its doors in 1995.

Years ago, such groups as U2 and Aerosmith played beforepacked audiences, Naimi said. But the sometimes unruly youngcrowds were one of the reasons commissioners voted Tuesdayagainst allowing the club to sell alcohol past 2 a.m.
