Orlando-area music venue the Haven under new ownership, will reopen as the Conduit in January

Orlando — well, Winter Park — venue The Haven is getting a serious remake and becoming The Conduit in early 2023. The longtime Aloma Avenue spot, host to an unholy legion of metal shows over the years, has been purchased by the intriguing troika of Pete Olen of Endoxa Booking, Will Walker of Will’s Pub, and Jerry Dufrain of Tampa’s Orpheum. The mid-size venue will be closed for a few weeks for remodeling, after which it will reopen as The Conduit.
