Hollywood Studios New Watering Hole: Baseline Tap House
Happy Monday, friends! I hope you guys had a great weekend and are ready for a week filled with magic! It really seems like January is dragging on and on, even though a lot of really fun things happened in January like being able to try out the new Baseline Tap House at Hollywood Studios!
If you've been around for a while then you'll know how much I love trying out new places, and I really love when those places are well themed, and aren't too fussy. Baseline hit all of the marks for me. It's located just down the street from Star Tours, right before the entryway to what's going to be Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. So when Galaxy's Edge opens, you can expect this tap house to be full most of the day!
One of the things I love most about Baseline is that they have a huge amount of indoor and outdoor seating. The indoor seating is hightop tables, and family style long tables. And the outdoor seating is family style with some bar edge seating. Depending on where you sit, you can get some really great views of Hollywood Studios to people watch and just enjoy the day.
My dad and I went here for a quick drink and a snack before we headed to Disney Springs to do the Void Star Wars Secrets of the Empire virtual reality experience. What I really love about Baseline is the fact that you can create your own beer and cider flight with the wide range of drinks they have on their menu. You get four pours that are five ounces each, which is a pretty good deal for $10.50. We got the Ace Cider with orange and apple, the Sierra Nevada Sidecar, Golden Road Brewing Hefeweizen, and the Green Flash Passion Fruit Kicker Wheat Ale. All of the beers and our cider were very good, but my dad and I both agreed that the passion fruit one was the best! It was sweet without being overly candy-like.
We also got the charcuterie board, which was $10, and filled both of us up enough that we felt like we were full but not overly full before we went to have dinner at Disney Springs. The board comes with Toma Farmstead Cheese, Point Reyes Original Blue Cheese, Laura Chenel's Sonoma Goat Cheese, Chorizo and Calabrese Salami, Cornichons, Grapes and Toasted Baguettes.
Overall, I would highly suggest going to Baseline if you're at Hollywood Studios and want a place to just hang out for a while. This is going to be a pretty popular place once Galaxy's Edge opens up too!
