Hey Thrill Seekers,
Yesterday Disney announced that they would be constructing an Indiana Jones themed bar to feature at Disney Downtown (set to be renamed Disney Springs). The Bar set to be called Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar is under construction on the waterfront between the new Boathouse and the Paradiso 37 restaurants in The Landing section of the entertainment complex.
The 150-seat establishment is named after Indiana Jones’ pilot and will have an aviation theme. Guests will see vintage travel posters, propeller-like ceiling fans and a diving bell booth.
According to wikipedia Jock Lindsey was an American freelance pilot. Lindsey cut his teeth as a stunt pilot performing in Midwest airshows and relocated to Venezuela after a rumored flight-related tragedy. He frequently was hired by Indiana Jones to fly the archaeologist to remote parts of the world. Easygoing and affable, Lindsey notably butted heads with Jones on one subject: his pet snake, Reggie.
On the menu you can expect to order “Rolling Boulder Meatballs” and “Air Pirates Everything Pretzels” with mustard and beer-cheese fondue. Cocktails will include “Hovito Mojito.” There will be outdoor seating on Jock’s steamboat, facing Lake Buena Vista.
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 and from the reaction on the internet its going to be popular.
