As part of the multi-year reimagining of Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the area adjacent to Muppet Courtyard will reopen this fall as Grand Avenue. Inspired by present-day Downtown Los Angeles, Grand Avenue captures the spirit of that city with facades of trendy shops, lofts, restaurants, and other businesses utilizing former office buildings and warehouses that have been converted over the last couple of decades. Grand Avenue serves as a place of recreation and relaxation.
Recently, as part of this transformation, the theater that houses Muppet*Vision 3D was named Grand Arts Theatre and given a new marquee inspired by a restored movie palace.
Opening this fall on Grand Avenue, BaseLine Tap House will be the newest food and beverage location at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. 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. Guests feeling peckish will be able to 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.
BaseLine Tap House will open daily at 11 a.m. Check back here on OTPN for an announcement of the opening date.
