Walt Disney World has officially confirmed that Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar will be opening to guests on September 22th.
The bar’s storyline centers on the pilot from the “Indiana Jones” films, the aviation-themed lounge features unique drinks and small plates.
Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar is going to be located in The Landing district of Disney Springs, next to the recently opened BOATHOUSE, and just across from the upcoming Morimoto Asia restaurant.
Tucked in between the soon-to-be-expanded Paradiso 37 and recently opened BOATHOUSE restaurant, a new Disney owned and operated Food & Beverage offering has been taking shape. Today, Disney is thrilled to share more details on this aviation-themed lounge, Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar.
With a prime location along Lake Buena Vista and seating for 150, the venue will feature unique cocktails – such as the “Hovito Mojito” with Barsol Quebranta Pisco, fresh lime juice and simple syrup – and small plates such as “Air Pirates Everything Pretzels” with house-made mustard and beer cheese fondue.
The design team has gone to great lengths to ensure that every element – from the propeller-based ceiling fans and diving bell “booth” to the “Rolling Boulder Meatballs” on the menu – fits within the storyline.
And just what is that story? Ardent fans of the “Indiana Jones” films may recognize Jock Lindsey as Indy’s frequent pilot; he’s also the owner of a pet snake named Reggie – an important detail, trust me on this! In the main room, guests will discover an expansive bar, aviation decor filling the room, vintage travel posters covering the walls and correspondence between Jock, Indy and their fellow adventurers on display. Guests can eat, drink and be merry outside as well, in Jocks’ old steamboat, now in permanent dry dock and aptly named “Reggie;” and in nearby seating on the adjacent deck.
Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar is set to open this fall at Downtown Disney.
