The Clevelander South Beach, a Miami institution on Ocean Drive, opted to halt its food and beverage services, closing the doors to its on-site restaurants temporarily amid spring break chaos until Wednesday at least.

“One reason for our prominence and long-standing reputation has been our focus on the safety and well-being of our staff and patrons,” the Clevelander’s management team said in a statement on its website. “Recently, we have grown increasingly concerned with the safety of our dedicated employees and valued customers and the ability of the City to maintain a safe environment in the surrounding area.”

All employees will be paid in full during the period of closing and the Clevelander said it would reevaluate the situation over the coming days.

The hotel remains operational while food and beverage facilities including the Clevelander Kitchen and Bar, Game On and the C-Level Rooftop Terrace will be closed, according to the Miami Herald.
