Interesting with the new walls up in the central courtyard of the Pirates' gift shop. Is it possible that they are going to go vertical and the lounge will be an upper floor ?

There was also a pretty significant permit filed for that location and still nothing for Tortuga.

@peter11435 the rumors seem to indicate that the location of the Pirates Bar will be Tortuga Tavern from those who appear to be fairly credible with the rumors they drop. The initial rumors were that this was marked for the Pirates League space adjacent to the Pirates gift shop. However with the closing of Tortuga Tavern, many now believe the bar will be going in there. Is there something you've heard that is contrary to any of this, and if so, what is it? Did you hear that the Pirates Bar is going on the top branch of the Swiss Family Treehouse?

Tortuga is closed but all the permits and construction walls are currently for the gift shop area. Could just be two unrelated projects.

As I said. There is a lot of misinformation in this thread. People heard Tortuga was closing and made assumptions.

@JustInTime @ToTBellHop any update to the rumor of Pirates Bar going in Tortuga Tavern or Pirates League?
No but the current closure of the courtyard certainly suggests they will be enclosing that space into functional gift shop and then perhaps expand the Pirates League footprint into the store a bit for the bar. All I had heard was that the bar would be allowed to be bigger than Pirates League. I assumed that meant Tortuga but perhaps there is a different way to make it bigger and we are seeing that play out. I wasn't thinking that "outside the box."

They apparently will still use Tortuga during party season.

Maybe with the slow summer season they decided just to yield management it away to pecos to handle. Pirate shop can probably also get creative with all the closed rooms to adjust floor plans, this all makes more sense

As far as I know there has been no change to the plan to use the Pirates League, with some adjustments.

Tortuga is in hybernation, which is not new for the location.

This is what it currently looks like.
