Updated 7/28/17 to reflect logo and artist rendering of the new Tap House.
The Grand Avenue Area at Hollywood Studios is about to receive a grand makeover! The area is going to be re-imagined to resemble a present-day Los Angeles this Fall. Disney is hoping to replicate the spirit and diversity of the city through recreating the colorful vintage buildings and warehouses found throughout the Downtown Area. In addition to the area being re-imagined, a new corner pub will be added called Baseline Tap House. Baseline Tap House will feature beer and wine selections from California and will replace the old Writer’s Stop.
In a quaint brick building, Baseline Tap House celebrates the revitalization of Downtown Los Angeles by paying homage to the building’s former life as the Figueroa Printing Company, a mom-and-pop print house that had ties to the Disney studios in nearby Burbank. The space retains many of its cool architectural and mechanical details with exposed walls and old printing equipment and artifacts, blending the past and present in an inviting space. Outside is a charming tree-shaded terrace, perfect for a relaxing break in the day.
California craft ales, lagers and cider are the stars of the drink menu. California wines on tap along with specialty cocktails are not to be missed either. A gourmet non-alcoholic lemonade and soda on tap round out the drink selection.
If you’re feeling peckish, try one of the small bites, including a Bavarian pretzel with mustard and beer-cheese fondue, spiced almonds or a charcuterie board featuring California cheeses.
The official opening date has not been announced by Disney yet but it should be sometime this Fall. I can’t wait to try one of the California lagers along with one of those Bavaria pretzels. They look amazing!
