No self-respecting remote outpost on the edge of the galaxy would call itself a smuggler’s planet without a cantina, and Black Spire Outpost is no exception. Today, I’m pleased to share more details for Oga’s Cantina, which will be serving pilots, bounty hunters, smugglers, locals and galactic travelers alike, when it opens in 2019.

Visitors come to this notorious local watering hole to unwind, conduct shady business, and maybe even encounter a friend…or a foe. Run by an intriguing alien proprietor, Oga Garra, the cantina adheres to a strict code of conduct that tries to keep its unruly patrons in check. But with a history of being a smugglers’ safe haven and a popular stopping point for those seeking to avoid the authorities, you can bet that the cantina has a story or two to tell.

Oga’s Cantina is the kind of establishment that attracts some of the most interesting and disreputable characters in the galaxy. And you never know when a stormtrooper or a familiar face will show up. Patrons of the cantina come from across the galaxy to sample the famous concoctions created with exotic ingredients using “otherworldly” methods, served in unique vessels. With choices for kids and libations for adults, the cantina will make for a great stop!

Musical entertainment is provided courtesy of RX-24, the former StarSpeeder 3000 pilot droid we first met in Star Tours, who has re-envisioned himself as the cantina’s DJ. As quirky and talkative as ever, he’s still trying to do his best on the job.

Get ready to listen to some unique music, taste the best drinks in the galaxy, and surround yourself with a colorful cast of characters. You never know what will happen at the cantina!

Oga’s Cantina opens its doors at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in 2019 at both Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort.


  • Half a year to go–I can’t wait! Will Oga’s cantina be the same one that Vader/Anakin, Thrawn, & Padme visited in Thrawn: Alliances? Will we be able to visit locations in Batuu that were described in the novel?

  • This is exciting. Can’t wait to check this out 🙂

  • YAAAAAY! Very excited about the alcohol, but more excited to see Rex again! Stopped going on Star Tours after the remodel. Miss the original very much. Comets! Comets!!

  • Too bad there serving alcohol in Walt’s ORIGINAL Magic Kingdom. Disney, please reconsider and don’t forget the founder’s beliefs.

  • Hi!

    Will we be able to reserve a table at Oga’s? My family is heading to Galaxy’s Wdge for our 20th anniversary next summer.

  • …Also, I agree with what others have said, I really hope that RX-24 is voiced by Paul Reubens!

  • Thanks for the update Scott!
    So exciting. Next summer at Disneyland is going to be very fun. (Not to mention busy!) 🙂

    Best comment ever.

    That is all.

  • Hello, Im an avid Star Wars fan, and I have a few questions after reading this article. the reason for these questions is the new Timothy Zahn novel, Thrawn: Alliances, which shows you a past and present look of Black Spire Outpost on Batuu. Why is it called Oga’s when Nodlia is the Bartender during the Age of the Empire? Will there be a decent population of Darshi about Black Spire? The setting during the Empire will be after Thrawn and Vader’s visit since there were no Imerpials there before right? Will the Grysk be present or mentioned by other “inhabitants”? How much will Thrawn: Alliances impact Black Spire Outpost since the novel has a detailed past/present visual of the place? I ask these as both a Star Wars and Disney fan looking forward to the amount of detail and effort put into this world.

  • Can not wait for this. I’m gonna have to book an extra day just to hang out at Oga’s!

  • What is the best route one would take to get a job at this bar?

  • Pleeeeease tell me Paul Reubens is still voicing Rex

  • Can’t wait! All of Galaxy’s Edge is going to be amazing.

  • is Paul Reubens returning as the voice of RX-24??? Because he needs to!

  • Is it just me or does “libations for adults” mean they are serving alcohol here?

    • We are developing a specialty cocktail (non-alcohol- and alcohol-based) menu that will include creatively themed custom cocktails, and proprietary beer and wine options. Stay tuned for more details!

  • This’ll be amazing! We fear that accessibility to these attractions may be near impossible in the foreseeable future.

  • Rex! ‘R2, light speed to Endor!’

  • Quick or table service?

  • Can’t wait! Will this be a QS or TS restaurant and will mobile ordering be an option?
