Disney has announced a new Indy-themed restaurant coming to WaltDisney World in Orlando, Florida. Disney has released two new pieces of concept art from the project. A press release (courtesy of Screencrush) indicates that the restaurant will be called “Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar,” named after the snake-owning pilot in the beginning of Raiders who helps Indy escape from Belloq and the Hovitos.
Here’s the relevant info, and check out the concept art at the top and bottom of this post:
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 ‘AirPirates 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.
