June 23rd will be a HUGE day at Disney California Adventure Park in Disneyland Resort! It was recently announced that it will be the opening day for Pixar Pier.
And it was just revealed that it will also be the opening day for the new Lamplight Lounge!
This seaside lounge is taking the place of the beloved (and recently closed) Cove Bar. But Cove Bar will certainly not be entirely forgotten, as the Lobster Nachos from Cove Bar will be featured on the menu!
AND guests will have the opportunity to visit the Cove Bar once more… it will reopen for a brief run starting March 16th, and will close again at the end of May for its permanent transition into Lamplight Lounge.
Once the new Lounge opens, the Lobster Nachos will be featured on the menu along with more California gastro-pub cuisine and signature cocktails unique to the spot. The bar will boast, of course, beautiful waterfront views from upstairs and downstairs. And outdoor seating will offer awesome views of the new Pixar Pier at night, as well as the World of Color spectacular.
According to Disney, the Lamplight Lounge, which is “renovated from an old warehouse factory,” will retain many of its original features. Elements include steel structures and exposed concrete and brick walls, with the original factory floor boards refinished as ceiling panels and floors.
The space will reflect the “creativity, inspirations and personalities of the artists and storytellers who have brought Pixar stories to life.” Look for artistic marks left by the Pixar “regulars” throughout the space, such as concept art, sketched-upon napkins, collectable toys of Pixar characters, and more.
