JOCK LINDSEY’S HANGAR BAR NOW OPEN AT DOWNTOWN DISNEY
This cozy lounge features light bites and drinks inspired by Jock’s globe-trotting, including a stint as the pilot for Indiana Jones in “Raiders of the Lost Ark.”
From salvaged equipment to spare airplane parts, Jock’s mementos decorate the inside of the lounge. Outside his old canvas-covered steamboat is a fun place to watch the sunset.
Though Jock may be gone, his adventures live on at this exotic watering hole. And, that’s what gives the place its charm – and a creative menu of adventurous tastes. You can enjoy crispy calamari flatbread with a kick from harissa and peppery arugula; Dr. Elsa’s She-Deviled Eggs; “Good” Dates stuffed with goat cheese; and a Snack of Ra for a taste of Africa with salads and dips served with injera (bread) and naan crisps.
Along with beer and wine, mixologists are having fun with cocktails, such as the Cool-Headed Monkey, The Scottish Professor, Reggie’s Revenge and Anything Goes, all crafted with spirits from around the globe.
Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar is open from 11:30 a.m. to midnight Sunday-Thursday, and until 1 a.m. on Friday and Saturday (no reservations).
Located on the waterfront between Paradiso 37 and The BOATHOUSE, Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar is part of the largest expansion in Downtown Disney history, which will transform the area into Disney Springs, a lively shopping, dining and entertainment destination. Guests at Disney Springs will have a unique Disney experience amid beautiful open-air promenades, flowing springs and waterfront charm.
