Just like starlets of yesteryear at the original Hollywood Brown Derby, guests can enjoy a beautiful afternoon or evening relaxing on the new patio lounge at The Hollywood Brown Derby Restaurant at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Shaded by big umbrellas, guests can sip wine, beer and cocktails such as a classic Mint Gimlet (Nolet’s Silver Dry Gin, simply syrup, lime juice and fresh mint) or a Bloody Mary with Absolut Peppar Vodka. There are flights of martinis, Champagne, wines, Scotch and Grand Marnier. And wine by the glass or half bottle.

Small bites are on the menu and include artisanal cheeses, charcuterie, duck confit tacos, steamed Prince Edward Island mussels, Derby Cocktail with jumbo lump blue crab, black tiger shrimp, avocado and a horseradish-tomato juice, and two Derby Sliders—a Wagyu beef slider with cognac mustard aïoli, smoked gouda cheese, bacon and avocado; and a house-made chorizo slider with chipotle mayo, manchego cheese, pickles and crispy onions.

You can also just stop for dessert, with Chocolate Three Ways (praline milk chocolate cream, crunchy ganache and orange-chocolate mousse), a banana-white chocolate toffee tower on a cocoa-almond cookie and bananas Foster, or strawberry Champagne cheesecake.

  • Those treats sound delish. I can’t wait to give it a try in Jan and May. Will have my TIW card in hand. What is that drink with the cucumber in it?

  • We cannot wait to visit this new lounge! Looks like a great place to enjoy new food and yummy drinks! I can’t see them saying no to kids, but it does look like this is geared more for couples and small groups. It is showing two seat tables in the pics and they are emphazing alcohol. For us “kid free” couples it’s a nice change.

  • Why not just reopen the old Catwalk Bar on the second floor? That was a great spot!

  • One of our favorite restaurants! With our weather finally cooling off the hubby and I look forward to the patio!

  • Robert, of course children are allowed in there. Why wouldn’t they? I guess the only WDW restaurant that doesn’t welcome kids is Victoria & Albert’s.

  • ARE kids allowed in this area??

  • Excellent! It will be nice to have a premium food and wine experience available for outdoor seating that doesn’t require a reservation so we can spend more time at this park. Have a feeling this will be very popular, especially for the locals when they find out about this. Great idea and thank you to whomever came up with this!

  • Hurray!! Love the Brown Derby at Walt Disneyworld! They treated me like a queen when I was there! The “Derby Cocktail with jumbo lump blue crab, black tiger shrimp, avocado and a horseradish-tomato juice” sounds heavenly! :^) Congrats, Brown Derby!!

  • Look forward to visiting and tasting the new items on my next visit.
