Speaking of Vic's, does anyone have a picture of the Trader Vic's in Toronto? I have always wanted to know what that looked like inside. I am saddened when I think of all the times I walked by it in my pre-tiki enlightenment days, and never went in. And now it's gone!

Possible Atlantic City Trader Vic's


After spying out the updated Trader Vic's site, I e-mailed and asked the company whether Philadelphia was in the running for a new Trader Vic's . . . and a nice person from their office in San Francisco replied that there's nothing in the works for Philadelphia at the moment, but they're looking into Atlantic City. He said he'd hang onto my address and let me know.

Everyone drink a Mai Tai and make a silent toast to the restaurant location gods for good luck!

Thanks for the update Erika. I was excited when I saw Philly mentioned as a possible TV local. AC would make sense, but I'd like a little closer location. Maybe I should email them and if they start seeing an interest they might get an interest... ya know wha' I mean?

Latest news on the Valley Ho Resort and re-opening of Trader Vic's in Scottsdale:

"Developer Scott Lyon of MSR Properties, who called the Valley Ho one of the Valley's most important historic assets, said construction would start in April and should be completed by September 2005.

Trader Vic's could open as early as January 2005, he added."

YES!

Valley Ho Gets City's Blessing

I thought we were going to get a Trader Vic's here in downtown San Diego-go but the local owners have decided to abandon Vic & go with their own idea of a tiki bar or as they phrased it "an upscale tiki style bar & bistro"...I guess whatever that is has got to be better than another Starbucks!

Ya mean Town Pimp? <<snicker>>

No, em, it's like Westward Ho! Not much of a western fan myself so that's all I know.

Demolition permit was issued last week for the old Stars restaurant in San Francisco. Vic's triumphant return to San Francisco begins!

I live in Philadelphia, and, while I would love to see a Trader Vics in the city, hearing that one may be coming to AC is really exciting. Actually, I would almost prefer that it be there... The Jersey shore has got an AMAZING retro vibe to it, and a Trader Vics would only enhance that. Please keep us posted!

Good karhma attached to Stars should be a good omen for Trader Vics' triumphant return. The Civic Center - Tenderloin location seemed to work well.

You MUST be talking about places like Wildwood and Sea Isle City! I was born and lived in and around Atlantic City until 1988 (I was in my 20's) and getting out of that casino infested rat-hole was the best decision I ever made. I have not set foot in AC since 1994 but last time I was there it was nothing but a cesspool of garbage, beaches full of hospital waste, and seagulls the size of turkeys...not to mention the rudest, saddest excuses for human beings I have ever met in my life. Maybe Trader Vics is looking more at the casino crowd to be in a profitable location but I can think of lots of classier places in NJ. Maybe AC has changed a lot in the last 10 years?? I suppose anything's possible...we'll see.

How about a Trader Vics in Dallas?? The old location is still intact and can be rented for private parties...tiki's and all!

juno,
no need to worry AC is exactly the same, if not worse, then you left it. i presently live in OC which despite their continual raping of their past architecture and roots is not as bad as AC.... yet. (hey GRACE KELLY lived here!!)
all of this in mind i would still love a trader vic's 15 minutes from my house!!!
