DISNEY TO BAND WITH HOUSE OF BLUES TO OPEN "MUSIC MECCA"
Published May 19, 1995
Walt Disney Co. will join with House of Blues to open night spots at Disney theme parks and other sites, according the this morning's N.Y. POST. House of Blues is a chain of "music-retail- dining spots" with four locations, including a "sprawling and wildly successful" store in L.A. The chain "plans to open at least four more night spots in Paris, London, Chicago, and Las Vegas -- and Disney is prepared to invest $25 million into that second phase of expansion." The first venture with Disney will open on Pleasure Island at Disney World (Paul Tharp, N.Y. POST, 5/19).
