'Indiana Jones' Bar opens at Disney Springs with Great References and even Better Food and Drinks!
*Special shoutout to my friend Krystle for being here on Opening Day and for all the great photos!*
Today (9/22/15) was the opening day for Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar in Disney Springs at Walt Disney World! This Indiana Jones themed bar named after a small backstory character, it was Jock Lindsey who told Indy to "show a little backbone," as he flew the plane in Raiders of The Lost Ark.
The bar is located between The Boathouse and Paradiso 37.
Specializing in small bites and drinks, this will be one of the places you will want to stop at.
Love the newspaper front page! So much to look at and to take in! Lots of great Indy references throughout the entire bar!
We learn more of Jock's backstory as he trained for air shows throughout the 1920s and 1930s.
Time to take a look at the pilot's log book, otherwise known as the menu!
So super nerdy alert but I love this detail! See the Society for Explorers and Adventurers? It spells out SEA! For those of you that already know then you are probably pretty stocked to see this too! In Tokyo, there is Tokyo DisneySEA. And yes, that is what the SEA stands for! In that park, Harrison Hightower, who owned the Hotel Hightower, home to the Tower of Terror. Hightower is a member of SEA! In Hong Kong Disneyland, Mystic Manor is owned by Lord Henry Mystic, who is also a member of SEA! And now we learn that Jock Lindsey is a member of SEA! Now where is the Disneyland connection into SEA? Time will tell!
Lao Che's Revenge! Spicy Asian wings!
Good dates! Goat cheese-stuffed dates with Marcona almonds and pickled vegetables!
Tanis Tacos! Filled with Falafel, shredded lettuce and cucumber tomato salad!
Squid? Why did it have to be squid? Calamari flatbread with harissa spread!
Rolling Boulder Sliders! Three spicy meatball sliders served with yogurt sauce!
A Willie Scott drink? Sign me up! Even though I had a Willie Scott drink at a different Indy event!
Take a look at this awesome monkey mug! I must have one!
Reggie's Revenge! Florida Cane 'Orlando Orange' Vodka, Midori Melon Liqueur, white cranberry juice and fresh lime juice!
On the left is the Diving Bell made of Simply Lemonade and watermelon topped with a lemon-lime foam. On the right is the Poisonless Dart made of soda water with mint, simple syrup and fresh lime juice.
Just send the entire Reggie's Revenge over to my table please!
One last thing to take a look at is this coaster! I love the Disneyland reference!
Once again thank you to Krystle for the use of her photos! I cannot wait to get back to WDW and check Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar out!
