Oh you can bet i'll be there. I found a short cut from my house that shaves off two hours (come down hwy 114 to jacksboro highway).

Trader Vic's will put that has-been Tiki Bob's in the west end to shame. Heck there is no competition!!

Hey Tekoteko, I am also in SA. Let's get together for a drink sometime. Maybe we could carpool to the next Texas function.
Aloha, Benehune

Welcome gretanicole! Always good to see more folks from the Dallas area.



Thanks Juno! =D

It's so cool to have something to look forward to for a whole year! It'll be that much more fun when it finally opens! I'll have to find a vintage polynesian dress to wear opening night. Will be easy to do with ebay and a whole year in front of me!

I'm in for whatever.

Juno, we're just moving in this next week but we won't be too far from McKinney. Heck, Providence is almost in Collin County (on 380). We'll shoot you an invite as soon as we find or make a bar....do you do consulting? )

Oklahoma City, huh? I ran across a report of a new tiki bar in the Bricktown area a few months ago. Would you know anything about this? I'm never optomistic about new places in trendy areas, but if its halfway interesting, you might have an addition to the locating tiki forum. I occasionally go through OKC (love the Cattleman's Cafe) and would love a tiki diversion.

I have not heard a thing about it...weird! Toby Keith opened a Billy-Bob bar / restaurant...but that is the only thing I heard about.

If I hear about it, I will post a review once I partake in the merryment.

I know we're still a long way off but here's some pics of the old/new Trader Vics in Dallas. There's a lot of construction going on at the Palomar and it doesn't appear much has been done yet on the outside of TV, although there was a lot of activity on the roof.

This is the actual building:



I hope they keep the original front door:

Will Dallas be the closest TV to New Orleans, or is there already one open closer than that? I went to one Tiki-themed bar/restaurant in Houston once (west of the city, right off interstate 10 in a complex which includes an IMAX movie theatre and many other restaurants, but I can't remember the name of the place, sorry) but I'd love to go to a Trader Vic's.

Dallas will be the closest...unless you want to drive to Atlanta.

For those folks in TX watching for TV's opening in June you may want to read the last 4 or 5 posts on this thread:

Thanks to Martiki for helping set the record straight.

Hi! This is long lost Suelo. I did post some pics of the interior of the soon to be Trader Vic's in Dallas when it was still known as the Tiki Room at the Santa Fe Hotel. We've been watching the construction regularly as we live less than 5 minutes away from this soon to be amazing tiki destination in Dallas! We definately need to get a TC group together for the opening. It's been far too long that we've gone without!!!!
