We love Disney for all it does for the kids, including the kid in all of us. But every once in a while, it's great to see that they remember their over-21 fans too. The new lounge opening today at Hollywood Studios is a terrific reminder of that.
The new menu will feature plenty of adult treats, including classic cocktails like Mint Gimlets (Nolet’s Silver Dry Gin, simply syrup, lime juice and fresh mint) and Bloody Marys. There will also be flights of martinis, Champagne, wines, Scotch and, cordials, plus a list of wines by the glass or half bottle -- perfect for sharing.
Speaking of sharing, small plates will feature heavily on the menu, so you can sip and nosh with artisanal cheeses, charcuterie, duck confit tacos, steamed Prince Edward Island mussels, and Derby Sliders featuring either a Wagyu beefwith cognac mustard aïoli, smoked gouda cheese, bacon and avocado, or house-made chorizo slider with chipotle mayo, manchego cheese, pickles, and crispy onions.
This is a welcome addition to The Brown Derby, and I can't wait to get nibbling. Outside seating is also available, making this the perfect way to enjoy Disney in the fall.
