The Restaurant Replacing Cove Bar at Disneyland Sounds Even MORE Amazing
Goodbye Cove Bar, hello Lamplight Lounge! The beloved waterside restaurant and bar will be replaced by a California-style gastropub, with signature cuisine and cocktails. But don't worry! Lobster nachos, a Cove Bar favourite, will still be on the new Lamplight menu.
When Pixar Pier opens on June 23 at Disney California Adventure, Lamplight Lounge will be open for guests to check out.
"This seaside lounge contains a full bar with picturesque waterfront views from both upstairs and downstairs," Disney said. "At night, outdoor seating provides views of the illuminated Pixar Pier and 'World of Colour.' Renovated from an old warehouse factory, the location has kept many features of the original two-story building. The steel structural elements as well as concrete and brick walls were exposed and repaired to tell the story of its past. The original wood boards from the factory were refinished and given new life as ceiling panels and floors. The furniture style echoes a relaxed feel and the end result is an open, airy, and bright place that is organic yet sophisticated."
And true to its location at Pixar Pier, the restaurant will celebrate the artists and storytellers behind your favourite Pixar films.
"Guests will discover the artistic marks that the Pixar 'regulars' have left throughout the lounge: concept art, a quick sketch on a napkin, knick-knacks and collectable toys of beloved Pixar characters will adorn the space," Disney reported.
Get excited for this new addition to California Adventure, and say farewell to Cove Bar starting March 16, when it will reopen briefly before closing at the end of May for good.
