Chip was at Disney California Adventure for the Food & Wine Festival and was delighted to see that The Cove Bar, a Paradise Pier staple, has re-opened its doors until just after Pixar Fest when it will close and be re-imagined as the Lamplight Lounge. The new concept is slated to debut with the opening of Pixar Pier on June 23rd.
In the meantime, this California Adventure watering hole will continue to serve up much-loved dishes like the Lobster Nachos and as well as delightful and colorful libations. The Cove Bar even offers a “Hidden Menu” which is where you’ll find one of our all-time favorite Disney cocktails the Fun Wheel.
Trust us when we say that this cocktail tastes as good as it looks. Its comprised of pineapple juice, X-Rated Passionfruit Vodka, blue curacao and all the fixins of a good Long Island Ice Tea (vodka, rum, triple sec, gin and a bit of soda water). Its the perfect drink for sipping as you watch the world pass by from the terrace!
If you’ll be at Disney California Adventure Park in the lead-in to Pixar Pier’s opening, we highly recommend you set aside some time to kick back, relax and have a treat or two at The Cove Bar.
Readers are encouraged to keep following along with Chip and Co. for the latest in Pixar Pier news and updates.
