Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar located at the heart of Disney Springs is a must-visit for fans of Indiana Jones. Serving casual dining fare for all the family, along with some delicious signature cocktails and libations, it has something for everyone. The establishment, unfortunately, does not accept Disney Dining Plan credits or the Tables in Wonderland Card, but at a reasonable price for the area, it is a great choice for a casual meal.
At this table service restaurant, the food options on offer are more on the side of nibbles than a full meal and there is a more limited menu during the late-night dining period. Most of the food has a worldly feel as the menu contains Tacos from Mexico, Pretzels from Germany and flatbreads from Egypt. It is served tapas style and makes for a lighter evening meal. Ultimately, the food on offer is something to snack on alongside signature drinks and cocktails that really make this establishment stand out.

Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar Backstory
As with many of the restaurants around Disney Springs, Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar has an interesting backstory itself, describing how the Hangar was built and then turned into a bar for weary travelers.
Fans of “Raiders of the Lost Ark” may remember the pilot Jock Lindsey and his pet snake Reggie, but how exactly did the pilot find his way into Disney Springs? Well, it seems that the pair found their way to Disney Springs in 1938 after hearing a tip about something mythological occurring down in Florida.
Once they made their way there, they were amazed by the lush scenery and beautiful natural springs and decided to set up shop, purchasing some property and settling down. It is here where he piloted seaplane tours across the rapidly developing state. Over time an airplane hangar, air tower, and runway were built. Esteemed members of The Society of Explorers and Adventurers came to see what he had built and the stop has become a popular stopover for both locals and world travelers!
Today, the hangar is not used practically but it a fantastic representation of history! This hangar, full of interesting artifacts and airplane parts perfectly commemorates the days of old. This 1940s airplane hangar turned popular watering hole is a great place to quench your thirst for adventure!
You can enjoy the theming aspects of the restaurant, particularly if you are a big fan of the Indiana Jones franchise. The whole place itself has spectacular theming, imitating a beat-up hangar. It has a cool antique feel as you are surrounded by cool artifacts from the series of films.
The interior of the bar is very open and warm, giving it a friendly and inviting atmosphere. There are lots of interesting industrial and wooden aspects to the design as well as maps on the wall to really give you a sense of being in a haven for explorers. On the front of the building a huge crane holds up the sign for the bar and it can be hard to miss!
