When Pixar Pier opens June 23rd at Disney California Adventure park, guests will discover a new hot spot at the Lamplight Lounge (replacing the ever-popular Cove Bar). This seaside lounge will be an elegant yet fun gathering place for the whole family, located at the entrance of Pixar Pier. Oh, and it will serve the guest-favorite Lobster Nachos…
Lamplight Lounge will serve California casual gastro-pub cuisine that is playfully presented along with unique signature cocktails. This seaside lounge contains a full bar with picturesque waterfront views from both upstairs and downstairs. 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.
Lamplight Lounge celebrates the creativity, inspirations and personalities of the artists and storytellers who have brought Pixar stories to life. 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.
Lamplight Lounge opens along with Pixar Pier on June 23rd. Guests wishing to visit the Cove Bar one more time are welcome to stop by as it reopens briefly beginning March 16th before closing again at the end of May for its permanent transformation.
