Lamplight Lounge is one of the true highlights of the newly opened Pixar Pier revamp with fun new spaces and items to try. We’ve already shared with you the exciting and whimsical menu and also taken you inside the new secret room that are some of the most notable highlights of the new space but now we invite you to join us for a tour inside the restaurant for a closer look at a bunch of the details!

The restaurant celebrates the creativity and personalities of the artists and storytellers who have brought Pixar films to life with clever tributes including concept art, a quick sketch on a coaster, memorabilia, and collectible toys of Pixar characters.

The California casual gastro-pub cuisine crafted for the new location is playfully presented, complemented by unique signature cocktails and exciting new menu items. Here’s a taste of what you can expect. ENJOY!

Upstairs Lounge

The former Cove Bar space is now part of Lamplight Lounge and it’s referred to as “Upstairs”. Why the distinction? Because while the full drink menu is available throughout the Lamplight Lounge, only the “Bite” menu offerings are available. The “Big Bite” menu items are only available in the seated dining area “Downstairs.”

The Stairs

The stairs themselves are not entirely remarkable but they link the Upstairs and Downstairs lounges and feature some artwork, as well. The framed artwork are the designs featured on the crew t-shirts for the various Pixar projects over the years.
