Themed bars are scattered all throughout the Orlando area due to its massive tourism market but Jock Lindsey’s really is a standout spot. Located in Disney Springs, this Indiana Jones themed bar and restaurant is full of snacks and drinks that are absolutely delicious. Let me take you on a guided tour of one of my favorite bars in Disney Springs!
So what’s the story behind the bar?
Jock Lindsey, Indiana Jones esteemed pilot from Raiders of the Lost Ark, is our bar owner. He’s an easy going pilot who’s been traveling the globe with Indy for years! Back in 1938, while chasing some tips located in the central Florida area, Indy and Jock discovered Disney Springs. They took a liking to the beautiful waterfront views and lush terrain, deciding to settle down and create a spot for other aspiring travelers and treasure hunters.
If you’ve ever been to a Tiki Bar like Suffering Bastard in Sanford or Trader Sams at the Polynesian you have a general idea of what a nice themed bar looks like. I’d put Jock Lindsey’s somewhere in the middle with Theming.
Designed to be an old flight hangar, the bar is full of plane parts, maps, and oddities. The ceiling is domed with wooden trusses filling the room with dark brown tones. The bar’s backdrop is a huge old map draped across the wall with alcohol scattered about. It has a nice lived in feeling.
At the back of the building there’s a large outdoor patio that has amazing views of the water and of Saratoga Springs Resort. They also have a large boat connected to the building that you can sit on as well! You can easily find yourself drinking and snacking for hours with the relaxing vibes out back on a nice sunny day.
There are just under 20 signature cocktails on the menu here at Jock Lindsey’s so I can’t go into every drink, but here are a few of my personal favorites.
For snacks, some of my standouts would be the Air Pirate’s Pretzel. A massive pretzel that could easily be shared, that comes with spicy mustard and delicious Beer-Cheese Fondue. If you’re looking for something that’s less of a snack and more of a meal, try the Tacos Al Pastor. Citrus-Chipotle Pork Belly, Pineapple Pico de Gallo, Red Cabbage, Grilled Corn Tortilla.
Jock Lindsey’s Holiday Bar
Each year during the Holidays Jock Lindsey throws up Christmas decor and adds a few specials to the menu. You have to get the Cookies and Milk! It’s an assortment of Christmas Cookies with Coquito. If you’ve never had Coquito, it’s the alcoholic embodiment of Christmas. A milky cinnamon rum drink that will have you saying “mmmmm, it’s christmas time”.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a family with kids or out with friends, this is a great middleground to grab food and drinks in a comfortable and themed setting. The views are nice, the drinks are tasty, and the food is scrumptious! Fly in and take a stop at Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar the next time you’re at Disney Springs.
