News! Rix Lounge Announces Tequila Tasting at Coronado Springs Resort

Now and then we like to explore the lesser-known hang-outs at Walt Disney World. Tucked into the main building at Coronado Springs Resort and specializing in awesome tequilas (they’re run by the same folks who run Cava del Tequila!) Rix Lounge is a unique place to unwind!

We’ve got a photo tour of this fun nightspot for you below, but first I have some super fun news to share for those of us who love tequila and beverage tastings!

Rix Lounge’s FIRST EVER Tequila Tasting

Rix Lounge will host their first ever Tequila Tasting on Saturday, March 30th, at 8pm! A tequila ambassador (Hilda, maybe?) will guide guests through the history and production process of tequila, the different types and categories of tequila, and of course a tasting.

I’m guessing this will be a LOT like the tequila tastings from the Epcot Food and Wine Festival, which have now been turned into full blown tequila lunches! The tasting will include Milagro Select Barrel Silver, Partida Reposado, and Gran Centenario Añejo. A delicious Sangrita will be the finishing touch.

Tickets are available to the general public (ages 21 and up) at $30 per person in advance, or $35 per person at the door. A table reservation is required.

Many special events are held at Rix Lounge, including kid birthday parties and romantic weddings! So, check the schedule before planning your evening. There is no cover charge unless a special event that is open to the public is being offered.

Mojitos and Margaritas

Rix Lounge provides an upscale place to unwind without having to travel to Downtown Disney. Plan accordingly as this is an over-21 venue (unless you’ve booked it for a daytime special event for kids). Sports fans should note that the NFL Sunday Ticket is available for viewing!

Open Sunday through Thursday 6pm to 12am with an extra hour on weekends. Friday and Saturday, stop by Rix Lounge from 6pm to 1am. Perfect for an after-the-parks pick-me-up in a trendy setting!

    Hopefully this will get people in! During my stays at Coronado, Rix was always empty… Even when the DJ was playing some really awesome music…
