Universal Orlando Resort is taking contractor bids for a project involving remodeling and demolition at Chez Alcatraz in Universal Studios Florida.

The call for bids describes a “remodel of an existing kiosk” and names Chez Alcatraz. It lists demolition, concrete work, millwork, carpentry, drywall work, painting, plumbing, electrical work, and more. Details about the project aren’t given. Theme parks often post projects for contractors to bid on, encouraging competitors to offer their services at a lower fee to secure a contract.

The bar is located in the San Francisco area of Universal Studios Florida, on the dock next to the hanging Bruce the shark from “Jaws,” and is named for the infamous Alcatraz Island. It currently features a blue awning, white columns, and a white tile counter.

The Chez Alcatraz menu includes the “Jaws”-inspired Ocean Attack and Bruce cocktails, and the Alcatraz prison-inspired Escape and The Alcatraz cocktails. It sometimes offers seasonal drinks, like the Zombie Shark cocktail (pictured above) during Halloween Horror Nights last fall.

We don’t know when construction on Chez Alcatraz will begin.
