Disney has today announced that a new pub will debut alongside the new Grand Avenue area at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Capturing the spirit of present-day Downtown Los Angeles, the new Grand Avenue area will take the place of what is left of the Streets of America, and will showcase vintage office buildings and warehouses representing the different vibrant districts and cultures of the city. One prominent hot spot to spring up is the Baseline Tap House, a cheerful corner pub specializing in beer and wines from California.

In a quaint brick building, Baseline Tap House celebrates the revitalization of Downtown Los Angeles by paying homage to the building’s former life as the Figueroa Printing Company, a mom-and-pop print house that had ties to the Disney studios in nearby Burbank. The space retains many of its cool architectural and mechanical details with exposed walls and old printing equipment and artifacts, blending the past and present in an inviting space. Outside is a charming tree-shaded terrace, perfect for a relaxing break in the day.California craft ales, lagers and cider are the stars of the drink menu. California wines on tap along with specialty cocktails are not to be missed either. A gourmet non-alcoholic lemonade and soda on tap round out the drink selection.

Small bites will be on offer, including a Bavarian pretzel with mustard and beer-cheese fondue, spiced almonds or a charcuterie board featuring California cheeses.

An opening date in the fall of 2017 is planned.

I turned right around and headed to the old one.

Yeah, I walked in after coming off of Star Tours and was surprised at how tiny it was. It's like they relocated the soon-to-be-replaced World Showcase Plaza bathrooms over to Grand Avenue. -Rob

Imagine my surprise when I went in the side towards GE and saw (I believe) 1 stall in the men's room. Seems weird that they didn't try to connect both ends.

That's a relief! ;)

Restrooms are now open.

Not yet, but the work has been brought down and now it’s just a few planters in front of the door instead of the miles of walls.

This building is new

I'm a bit confused... Are they brand new bathrooms? Or are they simply building a new facade and entrance into the back side of the existing bathrooms? -Rob

Sign above the door is a stylized sign that says “Women” (Bc it’s the entrance to the Women’s restroom). Shady building next door is men’s.

Photo update as of Friday, November 8, 2019. The building's (a restroom) appearance is very much in the Grand Avenue style. The sign above the door is covered.

It wouldn't hurt. There is basically no transition now and even those who defend the integrity of MK lands and sightlines readily admit that that area is atrocious with regard to thematic integrity.
