Get ready for the Battle of the Bars in Southern California's theme parks this summer.
Just a couple weeks after Disneyland opened its Star Wars-themed Oga's Cantina, Universal Studios Hollywood has announced the opening of a Jurassic World-themed Isla Nu-Bar.
The new, open-air, thatched-roof bar will serve tropical drinks next to the refurbished Jurassic World - The Ride and an also-refreshed Jurassic Cafe.
The Isla Nu-Bar menu will include tropical-themed cocktails such as Tiki Tai, Bird of Paradise, Ti Peach, Rum Runner, Mai Tai, Tropical Margarita, and Piña Colada. Drinks will be available in three models of souvenir tiki mugs (shown above).
The revamped Jurassic Cafe now will serve Costa Rican-themed cuisine, including Slow Roasted Mojo Pork or Spicy Mojo Jackfruit, Citrus Glazed Chicken, Fresh Roasted Red Snapper (above), Gallo Pinto (traditional rice and beans)... and an Isla Burger, because Universal knows that people will complain if they don't.
But the rest of the menu hits some notes not often found in theme parks and that should appeal to the Los Angeles area's diverse and adventurous food community.
Isla Nu-Bar also gives theme park fans in Los Angeles County a tiki bar to match Disneyland's Trader Sam's, as well as an IP-driven bar to compete with Oga's. Still no official word on an opening date fo the ride, though, other than "this summer."Tweet
