Review: Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar Brings Adventurous Options to Disney Springs

by Mommy Frog on October 29, 2015 Orlando

Hello, froggy fans! We're continuing our recent review of Disney Springs' newest additions. You might have caught our review of Morimoto Asia last week. Today, we're looking at Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar, which generated lots of buzz when it was first announced. If you've been to either of them, please share your thoughts about them in comments below!

Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar at Disney Springs

Fans of Indiana Jones were introduced to Jock Lindsey in the opening scene of Raiders of the Lost Ark, as the fedora-wearing archaeologist is chased through the jungle by angry, indigenous Hovitos to his friend waiting by the river. Jock saves the day, revving up his seaplane and carrying Indy to safety. What we didn’t get to see in the film were the many adventures of Jock Lindsey, who is the fictional man behind one of Disney Spring's newest lounge. The story goes, Jock traveled all over the world, meeting all sorts of adventurers and occasionally running into trouble. As he flew over the springs of Florida in 1938 searching for the Fountain of Youth, he decided to build himself a waterfront haven. Every corner of the Hangar Bar is filled with trinkets and treasures from Jock’s many adventures, including correspondence from his friends, like the renowned Dr. Jones.

The Hangar Bar's atmosphere reflects Jock’s affinity for travel, aircraft and the oddities he has picked up along the way. The focal piece of the main bar is the enormous antique map with a portrait of Jock in his signature Yankees baseball cap to the right. The industrial fans made from airplane propellers highlight the aviation theme. Browsing through the many trinkets and treasures throughout the bar can be an adventure of its own. Some artifacts tell their own stories, others are recognizable (that golden idol in the back corner might look familiar!), and some items you just have to imagine where they might have come from and how they made their way to Florida. With seating for about 150 people, the Hangar Bar is a cozy little spot with plenty of options. Guests can pull up a barstool at either the main bar inside or the second bar outside next to the “Reggie.” The boat-turned-dining-patio is an homage to Jock’s pet snake and the perfect place to sip on a refreshing cocktail while listening to the sounds of Disney Springs and enjoying the lake breeze. An extended patio and seating area wraps around the backside of the building.

The Hangar Bar serves up a range of specialty themed cocktails such as the popular German Mechanic, a mix of lemonade, Paulaner Hefe-Weizen, and Bavarian Radler Shandy, and the Cool-Headed Monkey, a blend of Starr African Rum, tangerine liqueur, lime, watermelon and pineapple juice. Jock puts his own spin on classic beverages such as the Hovito Mojito, the Air Pirate’s Mule and Shorty’s Singapore Sling. The bar also serves up tasty non-alcoholic beverages such as the Antidote, a mixer of Sprite and cherry juice, and the Poisonless Dart, soda water blended with mint, simple syrup and lime juice. The priority of Jock, his patrons and fellow adventurers is clearly conversing over delicious cocktails while the food is secondary.

Some interesting additions worth trying include Dr. Elsa’s She-deviled Eggs brined in beet-juice and stuffed with lump crab or the Good Dates with goat cheese and Marcona almonds. Kids and airplane enthusiasts will love the Air Pirate’s Pretzels, bagel shaped pretzels served on a wire airplane with house made mustard and beer cheese fondue for dipping. Not necessarily a great option for dinner, the Hangar Bar is the perfect place for after dinner drinks or light snacking as you wind down with friends or family after a day in the parks.

When visiting the Hangar Bar, keep an eye out for nods to Jock’s most famous fellow adventurer, Indiana Jones.  You might find the golden fertility idol from a Mayan temple or Dr. Jones’ lucky lighter. A close look at the coasters reveals more nods to both Jock and Indy, from Jock’s favorite Python Bar in Caracas to the infamous Club Obi-Wan. The coasters make great, cheap souvenirs, too!
