Alas, the day has come: this Jocky Lindsey’s Hangar Bar review is my last post for my December 2017 trip report. Now comes the long dark stretch between now and November’s Wine & Dine Half trip.
But why dwell on such tragedies when there is delicious food and drink to be had? My friends, we now return to Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar at Disney Springs. Is my mom an Indiana Jones fan? No she is not! Nevertheless I dragged her in for a late lunch because it’s a great bar and I wanted some SOFT PRETZELS, DAMMIT.
We’ll get there. First, can we take a moment to admire the holiday decor on the patio?
One of these days I’ll sit in the famed diving bell booth, but so far I’ve been happy to march through the otherwise lauded themeing of the main bar straight to the cool breezes and beautiful sites of the lakeside outdoor seating. Funnily enough, we wound up at the exact same table Pat and I sat at last time, right by the prop radio that occasionally calls in a plane or two.
On to the comestibles! For drinks, I committed a blogging sin as I so often do: I got the same drink I had during my last trip. But none of the seasonal beverages caught my eye, and the Anything Goes is so good, guys! Made with lime, passion fruit, pineapple juices, and dragon fire spirit, this cocktail is fruity without being cloying and spicy from the alcohol. And look how pretty:
This time around we also got some food, and that’s brand new! My mom got the vegetarian fritters, which are currently described as “veggies” but I’m 95% sure when we were there the fritters were specifically sweet potato. She was pleased with her selection. I tried a bite and found the fritters a little lacking in spice, but then I like it a bit spicy (see drink selection above).
I went with the famed Air Pirate’s Pretzels, served in an adorable wire airplane with grain mustard and beer cheese fondue on the side. While the argument that these are too expensive is valid, they’re soooo tasty. The pretzels are soft with just a hint of salt, the mustard seems homemade, and the beer cheese is of course delicious. Way into it.
Although no one seems to be fully able to explain to me why Disney chose to theme an Indy bar to such an obscure character, I’m a fan of Jock Lindsey’s so far. I can’t wait to go back and try new things! (Yes, maybe even a new drink.) (Maybe.)
