House of Blues' older sibling in Los Angeles, on the Sunset Strip, closed last week to make way for a condo development. The LA House of Blues is expected to reopen in another location, though that location has not yet been announced. House of Blues continues to operate at Walt Disney World's Downtown Disney, along with 10 other locations around the country.
House of Blues' need for a larger-capacity space appears to be good news for GardenWalk, which has struggled to attract crowds and retain tenants since it opened in the 2008 recession. And House of Blues' departure from Downtown Disney opens up a significant space for a new facility in Disney's shopping and dining district.
What will it end up being? Matthew Gottula has offered an outstanding suggestion:
So, when @HOBAnaheim moves to @TheGardenWalk, can the space it leaves behind at @DisneylandDTD turn into a West Coast Adventurers Club?— Matthew Gottula (@DLthings) August 12, 2015
I'd imagine most visitors choose it because of where it is rather than what it is.
I don't see many people crossing the road to visit it in the new location when there are plenty of other choices available.
