If you’re anything like us here at Word Of Mouse, visits to Disney’s Hollywood Studios typically do not include a whole lot of time spent eating. Although there are some popular table service restaurants, such as 50s Prime Time Cafe, Mama Melrose’s Ristorante (try the flatbread!), and The Hollywood Brown Derby, there are very few choices to grab a quick bite and get back on your way.
That may be about to change. Opening this fall will be a re-imagined area at Hollywood Studios known as Grand Avenue. Grand Avenue will showcase modern-day Los Angeles and will include vintage office buildings and warehouses representing different cultures from around the city.
Opening up in this area (in the building which used to be Writer’s Stop) will be Baseline Tap House. It will specialize in food and drinks from California, including craft ales, lagers, and cider. California wine and specialty cocktails will also be available. There will also be non-alcoholic choices to round out the drink selections.
If you are coming in hungry then you will not be disappointed. Baseline Tap House will be serving small plates including Bavarian pretzels with beer cheese fondue, and spiced almonds. Also available will be a charcuterie board featuring a selection of California cheeses.
Baseline Tap House will open daily at 11 AM although no official opening date has been set.
UPDATE: Baseline Tap House opened September 29, 2017. Have you visited yet?
