The Cove Bar

The_Cove_BarSome might say that Disney California Adventure park is more for adults than kids. While there’s plenty for kids inside DCA, many rides and shows cater to adults or older kids. Plus it’s the only park where you can purchase and consume alcoholic beverages.

If you’re looking for a relaxing afternoon by the water, head over to The Cove Bar on Paradise Pier. Just a few steps away from the entrance to Ariel’s Grotto, you’ll find a bar perched on the end of the pier. They offer signature drinks, wine, and beer, as well as decent bar food and appetizers. The Cove is open daily during regular park hours.

Not only will you find great food and drinks here. You’ll also take in an exceptional view overlooking Paradise Bay. You can watch the California Screamin’ roller coaster speed off, gaze at Mickey’s Fun Wheel as it spins around, and overdose on people-watching over the Boardwalk. At night, the pier attractions are all lit up and makes for a beautiful sight to behold.
