    Michael Jordan's upscale restaurant One Sixtyblue will close its doors this weekend.

    The former Chicago Bulls legend's restaurant has been a fixture on Randolph Street for the past 14 years, but owners say it was time to go in a different direction, according to the Chicago Tribune.

    "One Sixtyblue had an amazing run, and moving on is bittersweet," said Cornerstone Restaurant Group CEO David Zadikoff in a statement. "We are looking forward to a new chapter and are excited to announce our plans for the year ahead."

    The building, which used to be a pickle factory, will re-open in the spring with a different restaurant concept.

    Jordan opened a steak house in the InterContinental Chicago, at 505 N. Michigan Ave., in August. Furthering an exciting year for the hoops champ, he proposed to his longtime girlfriend, Cuban-American model Yvette Prieto, according to reports last month.
