LOS ANGELES | The Walt Disney Co. plans to close five ESPN Zone restaurants in Baltimore, Chicago, New York, Las Vegas and Washington, saying the economics of the business were “very challenging.”
The company said Wednesday that the two ESPN Zone restaurants in Los Angeles and Anaheim will remain open and operated by other companies.
The sports bar and restaurant had arcade games and big-screen TVs and served up burgers and beer.
The first ESPN Zone opened in Baltimore in July 1998 in the tourist attraction area known as Inner Harbor.
