A look into the full menu of drinks at Oga’s Cantina and recommendations on what you should order based on your tastes and preferences:
I love visiting Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. I enjoy Star Wars but I’m not a diehard fan… but the immersive environment is right up my alley and I love feeling like I’m actually in Batuu rather than Hollywood Studios. And one of my favorite things to do there is to pay a visit to Oga’s Cantina.
From the moment you enter it feels like you’ve joined a slightly seedy alien bar. Most of the tables are standing room only or standing at the bar. The servers are in character the whole time – usually slightly abrupt and making comments about the “foreigners” visiting. And almost always trying to eat my shoulder porg (it’s a thing). DJ Rex is spinning tunes, and for certain ones the bartenders even chant along. There are creatures in tanks on top of the bar.
But of course like any bar, Oga’s is really about the drinks! They don’t really serve food (there’s a few munchies but not meals) so don’t be looking for lunch here. Their drink menu has a variety of specialty alcoholic cocktails, non-alcoholic cocktails, 4 different beers, 2 wines, and a hard cider. You’re technically limited to 2 drinks per visit, though I’ve noticed they’ve been lenient with this.
The drinks are also very unique. You’re not going to find a typical cosmo or moscow mule with a different name here. With so many options you haven’t tried before, how do you know what to order?
Lucky for you, I’ve tried every specialty alcoholic cocktail, a few non-alcoholic ones, all the beers, and one of the wines… so I’m happy to share some info with you! In order to give you an understanding of what you might enjoy best, I’m going to do an “if you like this, try this.” That way you’ll have an idea of what you might really enjoy!
If you like midori… try T-16 Skyhopper
You know what flavors go really well together? Melon and kiwi. That’s what the T-16 Skyhopper does, but it also throws in some cream to make it a really smooth cocktail.
If you like flavored margaritas… try the Outer Rim
This has a lot of the elements of a traditional margarita, such as tequila and lime juice, but it also makes things more interesting by adding acai liqueur and “exotic fruit puree” to make it a little more sweet. And don’t be alarmed by the black stuff on the rim – it’s just black salt.
If you like mai tais… try the Yub Nub
This tastes like what I like to call a fairly typical “cruise ship drink” – lots of tropical flavors and fruit juices with spiced rum. It may be one of the more “ordinary” drinks on the menu, but you do have the option to purchase the super cool Endor mug with it.
If you like cosmpolitans… try the Jedi Mind Trick
To be honest, I expected more out of this bright blue drink, especially with the mention of grapefruit vodka and grapefruit bitters. But I found the flavor of grapefruit to be very faint. It’s mainly about the vodka and blue curacao, with white grape juice instead of cranberry.
If you like old fashioneds… try the Jet Juice
This is going to be pretty different than an old fashioned, to be honest, but it’s the only cocktail that contains bourbon or whiskey. It adds a chile liqueur and an acai liequeur, which gives it a very unique flavor. I really enjoyed it, so if you’re usually not quite so adventurous I still recommend trying it.
According to our last server this is probably the most popular drink here… but it comes with a big warning. It’s served topped with a “tingling” foam. And yes, this foam will numb your mouth and feel rather odd! But once you get past that it’s a pretty straight forward, sweet and tasty drink with peach vodka, peach schnapps, and orange juice.
If you like Moscow Mules…. Try Dagobah Slug Slinger
This is my favorite drink at Oga’s Cantina! I chose the moscow mule as the closest drink, but it’s really quite different. However, the most pronounced flavor here is ginger, so you have to like a strong ginger flavor to enjoy this drink. They also add tequila, blue curacao, and citrus juices. It’s unlike any other drink I’ve had anywhere, and I really enjoy it.
If you like Rum punch… try the Bespin Fizz
Here you’ve got rum and a few different fruit juices… however it’s certainly one of the most fun drinks with a dry ice effect creating a swirling cloud above the beverage!
If you’re a fan of craft beer… get the beer flight
I will caveat that by saying yes, the beer flight is $85. But if you like beer and you’re a Star Wars fan, you get an awesome souvenir set of rancor teeth and you get to try all of the beer! And I actually enjoyed all 4 of them. But if you’re only going to get one beer, my favorite is the White Wampa Ale – it has flavors of banana and citrus. I would avoid the Gold Squadron Lager just because you can get that one somewhere else in Galaxy’s Edge. The others are exclusive to Oga’s Cantina. If you’re a fan of IPAs, the Bad Motivator is a solid beer too!
If you like wine… try the Toniray
This is good if you’re a little less adventurous but still want to be with the theme. It’s basically like the typical chardonnay, but it’s colored blue so it’s more fun! If you’re a fan of red wines there’s also the Imperial Guard wine.
If you want a nonalcoholic beverage… try the Cliff Dweller
This is a fun fruity drink (Citrus Juices, Coconut, Hibiscus-Grenadine, and Ginger Ale served in a souvenir porg mug) that isn’t sickly sweet. It’s great for anyone who doesn’t drink alcohol or for kids. Plus it comes in the most adorable porg mug so obviously I couldn’t say no to this.
Oga’s Cantina really is one of my favorite places to visit in Galaxy’s Edge because so many of the drinks are unique and I enjoy so much on the menu! I’ve made a reservation there for every trip I’ve been since it’s opened, and I’m sure I will continue to do so for future trips.
FAQs about drinks at Oga’s Cantina
What is the best drink at Oga’s Cantina?
Everyone’s tastes are so different that it’s hard to say, which is why I created this guide to help you decide what you might like best! That being said, my personal favorite is the Dagobah Slugslinger – I like it because the flavor is very unique, so it may not be for everyone. The Fuzzy Tauntaun seems to be the most popular with guests. I think the Bespin Fizz is also a very solid option.
Is Oga’s Cantina worth it?
In my opinion, absolutely. The drinks are fun and unique, and the atmosphere is so much fun. I love visiting there, and if you don’t want to spend a lot on drinks there are non-alcoholic options or you can just get one drink to check it out. If you can get a reservation I would try to make a visit.
How do I get a reservation at Oga’s?
The vibe in Oga’s Cantina is definitely “small bar,” and the number of people they can accommodate is somewhat low – that means reservations may be hard to come by. Try right at your 60 day mark for later in your trip, and be willing to go at an off time. I have been to Oga’s at 9:30am before… hey, it’s vacation!
Is Oga’s Cantina just a bar?
Basically, yes. They have a few snack type items but there’s no real food or meals there. Many people get confused about this when they see that Oga’s Cantina requires reservations and the website lists a “lunch/dinner” menu. But that’s really just their way of saying the times that it’s open. Don’t go here expecting to have a meal unless you like liquid lunch.
How much do the drinks at Oga’s Cantina cost?
The specialty drinks are typically in the $15-17 range. Beer and wine are a bit less. Non-alcoholic specialty drinks are around $6-7. This is not including anything that comes in a souvenir cup, which is obviously more.
