A new bar is being built next to The Boathouse at Downtown Disney. While we’ve known from the concept art that it would be themed to an airplane hanger, we now know it will specifically be themed to Jock Lindsey, the pilot from the “Indiana Jones” movies.
“The Hangar” will open this fall and feature unique drinks and appetizers. The aviation-themed decor will include propeller fans, travel posters and letters written to and from Jock and Indiana Jones. Like the popular Trader Sam’s Grog Grotto at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, The Hanger will also feature surprise interactive moments.
Darcy Clark from the Disney Parks Blog has supplied a few more details:
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.
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! … 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.
Stay tuned as more details are received closer to the opening.
