Last September, MAL changed the look and name of Club Ibiza to The Zoo in an attempt to cast off its bad image, said David Baucom, president of MAL.
The change was short-lived.Baucom
stopped trying to establish such a business in York County because of the trouble he
received from government officials.
"It became too much of a hassle," he
said the county lost a lot of revenue because he
closed the nightclub, although he
maintains Club Ibiza and The Zoo were restaurants.
"They just wanted to play their games," he
is still running 21 other clubs throughout North and South Carolina and Georgia.
