AbracadaBAR overview

Disney's BoardWalk is home to a new cocktail lounge - the AbracadaBAR.

Located in the former Seashore Sweets next door to Flying Fish, AbracadaBAR is a wonderfully themed lounge, drawing on the 1930's golden age of illusionists.

As the story goes, the lounge was a former stomping ground for famous magicians and boardwalk illusionists, where after a show, they would gather to “conjure” up new cocktails, and swap magic tips and tricks. According to BoardWalk lore, it was on just such an evening that every single magician in the lounge vanished into thin air, and was never seen again.

Now, after sitting vacant for nearly seventy years, the secret magician’s lounge is now back in the spotlight and making its world debut as “AbracadaBAR.”

Despite its backstory, don't expect live performers or extensive effects like those found at Trader Sam's Grog Grotto. Instead, think more Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar. Keep an eye on the posters around the room though, they are enchanted.

Although the lounge is small, it does have a good amount of seating, which is really nicely arranged, giving the area a very intimate and cozy feel.

Seating is on a first come, first served basis. There is outdoor seating, but the real beauty of the place lies within.

The menu features a variety of speciality cocktails, unique for the location, along with a good range of wines and beers.

Many of the drinks have an element of table-side performance, with the ingredients mixed and changing color before your very eyes.

There isn't any food on offer, although there is a complimentary popcorn and chick pea mix.

The beautiful decor extends through to the hallways and bathrooms, with props and artifacts from the 30's magicians on display.

AbracadaBAR is open daily from 4pm to midnight - well worth checking out on your next visit to the BoardWalk, and just a 5 minute walk from Epcot's International Gateway.
