The folks behind Bullitt Bar will be opening McQueens Social Lounge in downtown Orlando this spring 2019.

McQueens will be next to Bullitt at 33 E. Pine St.

Paying homage to actor Steve McQueen, the new cocktail lounge bills itself as an "approachable craft cocktail lounge with an Americana Bad Ass influence accompanied by a modern day flair and a come-as-you-are attitude," according to its Instagram.

The Orlando Business Journal reports the cocktail lounge will feature basketball hoops signed by Orlando Magic forward Aaron Gordon, as well a darts and a slot machine. McQueens' focus will reportedly be on tequila, and the lounge will have more than 50 different liquors.

Operating partner Matty Bullitt told OBJ that McQueens is expected to open in April.
