We have been given another tidbit of what’s to come to Disney Springs in the coming year! Disney is once again working its magic on a new dining spot featuring Indiana Jones and an aviation theme.
Disney’s newest restaurant will be named Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar, and located between Paradiso 37 and the new BOATHOUSE Restaurant at The Landing in Disney Springs. Those familiar with Indiana Jones will recognize Jock Lindsey as pilot friend who came to his rescue in The Raiders of the Lost Ark. Disney’s newest restaurant will seat 150, and will feature a bar on a small boat that looks to be hanging off the side of the restaurant.
According to WDW News Today, Jock Lindsey’s will feature small plates, themed drinks, and special effects similar to the new Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto.
Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar is set to open this Fall (2015), and Disney Parks Blog let us in on some of the details of what to expect.
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.
What do you think of Disney’s newest restaurant? I know all of us here at Magical DIStractions can’t wait to try it out! We will keep all of our readers updated on the progress of Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar.
