Hangar Bar Exterior

An aviation-themed lounge, Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar has opened as part of the continuous expansion of dining options at Disney Springs.

Hangar Bar Interior

The restaurant's theme down to the servers who are scripted to say that ancient artifacts are not acceptable forms of payment is a tribute to the Indiana Jones blockbuster films.

Hangar Bar Tanis Tacos

Serving up unique drinks and tasty small plates themed after each of the original films, each visit is guaranteed to be a delicious adventure minus the ancient tombs and dangerous snakes.

More to Come

Disney Springs The Edison Rendering

With all of this excitement, it's hard to believe that there's still more to come in 2016 with the opening of a modern steakhouse, STK, and a lavish "Industrial Gothic"-style restaurant and bar called The Edison.

When Disney Springs is fully completed in 2016, guests will enjoy double the number of shopping, dining and entertainment venues from the current 70 to nearly 150 totaling more than 1 million square feet.
