After years of struggle, a Jacksonville entertainment venue has shut its doors.

Restaurant and entertainment center Latitude 360 shut down its operations in Jacksonville and Indianapolis this week. 

The Jacksonville location was off Philips Highway across from the Avenues Mall. The closure comes after the landlord sued the company, saying it owed almost $6 million in past rent and other charges.
