INSIDE AND IN DEPTH: Lamplight Lounge features tons of nods to Pixar with new decor and menu
Lamplight Lounge is one of the true highlights of the newly opened Pixar Pier revamp with fun new spaces and items to try. We’ve already shared with you the exciting and whimsical menu and also taken you inside the new secret room that are some of the most notable highlights of the new space but now we invite you to join us for a tour inside the restaurant for a closer look at a bunch of the details!
The restaurant celebrates the creativity and personalities of the artists and storytellers who have brought Pixar films to life with clever tributes including concept art, a quick sketch on a coaster, memorabilia, and collectible toys of Pixar characters.
The California casual gastro-pub cuisine crafted for the new location is playfully presented, complemented by unique signature cocktails and exciting new menu items. Here’s a taste of what you can expect. ENJOY!
Here’s a look at some of our favorite things on the new menu:
Drink coasters are definitely collectible!

Ready to go in? The new lobby features artwork, sketches, and quotes on the walls plus a fancy new chandelier made of sketches!
The Host/Hostess stand looks like a bunch of stacked bric-a-brac.
The former Cove Bar space is now part of Lamplight Lounge and it’s referred to as “Upstairs”. Why the distinction? Because while the full drink menu is available throughout the Lamplight Lounge, only the “Bite” menu offerings are available. The “Big Bite” menu items are only available in the seated dining area “Downstairs.”
The stairs themselves are not entirely remarkable but they link the Upstairs and Downstairs lounges and feature some artwork, as well. The framed artwork are the designs featured on the crew t-shirts for the various Pixar projects over the years.
Kitchen doors cleverly marked INSIDE and OUT.
Ball wall selfies!
This space is comprised of a few different special areas.
This booth features a bunch of toys and also has the distinction of sharing the other side of the Pixar Ball wall.
A gigantic wrap-around bar is featured Downtstairs, it separates the inside and covered outside portion of this lower level.
The inside seats are plush faux leather where as the outside seats are decidedly more weather-friendly.
