WDWMagic.com user WDWtraveler is reporting that Grand Avenue and the BaseLine Tap House are expected to open on September 29th. The report comes from a Cast Member, and has not been confirmed by any other source. It is also unknown if the entire street will be ready when the restaurant opens.
The area will repurpose part of the former Streets of America into a modern day Los Angeles by combining vintage office buildings and warehouses.
Within Grand Avenue, guests can find the BaseLine Tap House, a pub that specializes in California wine and beer. Inside, the pub retains details from the building's previous tenant, the Figueroa Printing Company. Printing equipment and exposed walls can be found inside with a shaded terrace on the outside. The Figueroa Printing Company is the fictitious previous tenant of the BaseLine Tap House building, the actual previous tenant was the Writer's Stop.
In addition to the alcoholic offerings, guests can enjoy a gourmet non-alcoholic lemonade or small plates including a Bavarian pretzel with mustard and beer-cheese fondue, spiced almonds or a charcuterie board featuring California cheeses.
As part of the Grand Avenue theming, the Muppets Courtyard area will be renamed to Grand Park.
