Disneyland's Cove Bar Is Being Replaced by Lamplight Lounge, and You Can Make Reservations Now!
Goodbye, Cove Bar, and 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 favorite, will still be on the new Lamplight menu.
"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 Color. 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 favorite 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, knickknacks and collectable toys of beloved Pixar characters will adorn the space," Disney reported.
