Do you know who Jock Lindsey is? Unless you’re an upper-tier hardcore Indiana Jones fan, probably not, but even casual Raiders of the Lost Ark viewers remember Indy shouting “the engines, Jock! Start the engines!” Yep, Jock Lindsey is Indiana Jones’ pilot, who apparently went on to start an airplane hangar bar after his adventures with Indy came to an end. Or at least, that’s the story behind Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar, opening up at Walt Disney World in Orlando this fall.
According to a Disney blog post here, Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar will be a typically elaborately themed drinking spot at Disney’s Disney Springs district, with vintage travel posters and other aviation-related miscellany greeting guests in the main room. There’s also Jock’s old dry docked steamboat, the Reggie (which shares its name with Jock’s pet snake), for guests to cavort in the open air.
It seems like a pretty cool idea for a bar, as evidenced by the concept art for Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar in the gallery underneath these words. And I would imagine there are plenty of in-jokes and references to the Indiana Jones movies found inside, although to appreciate them fully you’ll probably have to visit the place in person the next time you’re in Orlando.
