What is Oga’s Cantina?

Oga’s Cantina at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

The flagship eatery of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is actually way more of a bar than it is an actual restaurant, focusing exclusively (at least, for the time being) on a wide and curious array of drinks. That’s okay, though – what makes this a must-do stop on your Black Spire Outpost rounds is the venue’s atmosphere, music, and theming, and all of these can best be appreciated with a cool drink in hand.

Look for Oga’s in the back right corner of the theme-park land, not too far removed from the spaceport, which is where Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run is located.

Reservations at Oga’s Cantina

Disney has already begun taking reservations for Oga’s Cantina – a necessity, given just how scare seating is in the bar. Since this place tends to be very, very crowded (it can – and usually is – the most packed spot in all of Galaxy’s Edge), Disney tries its absolute best to keep the flow of patrons both in and out of the establishment at a constantly brisk pace (read: guests will be asked to not linger once their drink is done).

 

Theming at Oga’s Cantina

If the look, name, and feel of Oga’s Cantina seem familiar, that’s because they’re supposed to – it’s a deliberate play off of the Mos Eisley cantina that Luke Skywalker walked into in Episode IV: A New Hope, making cinematic history in the process (there’s even a “droid detector” stationed outside, since their kind isn’t served here, either). But this is an entirely different bar on an entirely different planet, and there’s plenty to see, hear, and taste here that will be brand new. Consider this the equivalent of being served a new concoction that has just a whiff of the familiar and a pinch of nostalgia.

A giant, U-shaped bar sits in the middle of the venue, with a series of intricate tubes threading their way down from the ceiling, moving behind the bar, and then branching off and forming a “bizarre array of taps that line two opposite walls of the room.” These handmade taps, which are forged from such salvaged items as droid arms and antique lightsaber handles, are what will dispatch one specialty drink or another for patrons (or, at least, be made to look like they do).

All around the bar, spread across three of the cantina’s four walls, are nine alcoves, with eight containing a booth and the last housing Oga’s audio-animatronic DJ, who should be more than a familiar face to Star Wars theme-park fans: the droid RX-24, who was originally introduced in the first version of Star Tours (as the bumbling, accident-prone pilot of the StarSpeeder 3000) before making a quick cameo appearance in the Rebels television series (as a far more successful – and sedate – transport pilot on the planet of Lothal). Disney and its storytelling partners at Lucasfilm, the production company behind the mega-franchise, have developed quite the backstory of how Captain Rex managed to make the transition from shuttle pilot to the self-styled DJ R-3X on Batuu, and while it’s one that just may be released in novel or comic-book form at some point in the future, we already know most of the basics: Rex flunked out of Star Tours, found his way into the Rebellion, fought in the Battle of Jakku (the concluding war of the Galactic Civil War, a year after the original trilogy ends), got into a subsequent TIE fighter dogfight over Batuu, crashlanded there, and was recovered by Mubo (the owner of Black Spire’s Droid Depot), who patched him back up in his brand-new, DJ configuration. Now, R-3X spins a three-hour playlist (comprised of exclusive songs that were created with the assistance of musicians from all over the world and that were modeled after ’80s pop-synth – and at least one of which will be from Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes, the band seen in Mos Eisley’s cantina), dancing as he works the controls. (And, yes, Paul Reubens, the original voiceactor, has come back to record all this new material.)

Scattered all throughout the middle of the room is a collection of small, standing-only cocktail tables, which is where the majority of the clientele will be asked to enjoy their potations – one key way in which Disney plans on keeping wait times to get into Oga’s to a minimum; not being able to sit while imbibing, after all, tends to cut back on how much time one spends in a bar. (What about those eight booths located on the periphery of the dining area? The company’s not talking just yet about how those will be used, but our guess is they’ll be reserved for the disabled.)

There have been hints that certain characters may drift in and out of the establishment while diners lounge around inside, such as roaming patrols of First Order stormtroopers, although this will more than likely have to wait until the initial crush of visitors dies down – if, indeed, this mobile meet-‘n-greet option ever does come to fruition. One character who definitely won’t make an appearance, however, is Oga Garra herself, the alien proprietor of the joint; beyond her general policy of not socializing with her customers, Oga also doubles as the boss of the Black Spire underworld, and her business interests keep her off-world for a good chunk of the time (most of the locals haven’t even seen her before – a bit of backstory necessitated by the fact that Disney didn’t want guests forming hours-long lines to meet her and thereby flooding the small floor space of her bar).

But Oga still makes her presence felt in her titular tavern in other ways – she keeps the pilots, bounty hunters, smugglers, locals, and galactic travelers that she calls her customers in check by implementing a strict code of conduct – and the same goes for other Batuu residents, such as the space pirate Hondo Ohnaka, who has a bulletin up on the wall recruiting for his brand-new smuggling operations aboard the Millennium Falcon. Keep your eyes peeled for other such Easter eggs scattered throughout the cantina.

 

The menus of Oga’s Cantina

Unique beverages fashioned out of exotic ingredients, crafted using otherworldly methods, and served in unique vessels – that’s the name of the libation game at Oga’s Cantina, and, so far, it seems like Disney has hit the nail exactly on the head. (Oga has also been known to procure unique shipments of beers, ciders, and wines, it should be added, so keep on the lookout for new offerings.)

The sheer variety of options is head-spinning in and of itself, offering a breadth and depth that is nothing short of staggering – Disney is promising a “wide range of classic and unique spirits found throughout the galaxy with a mixture of tastes and flavors to liven your taste buds.” In case you thought The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley‘s exclusive drink menu was formidable, you better sit down for this!

Wondering where the food is? While there are a few small plates here and there, don’t expect to find much in the way of solids at Oga’s – the name of the game here is drinks (the only munchie to acquire during the afternoon and evening, for example, is a light snack).
