Until the one in D.C. returns, or one opens somewhere close to my house, I will find no joy in the return of TV.

I cannot wait until Trader Vic's is open again in Scottsdale. I pratically spent my whole childhood at the original one that was there. I remember they had the best Shirley Temples.

word around the campfire is that the three level trader vics in vegas will be located across from the belagio....


The Vegas Trader Vics will be located with street frontage in the Desert Passage Mall which is located next the the Alladin. The mall is basically across the street from the Bellagio.

Good things come to those who wait...right?

Good news about Tiki returning to Vegas.

Anyone think TV will recycle the Moai abandoned on the island in Sunset Park and return it to the Strip?

Here are photos (thanks to Acquarj)

BUT - the possible brighter lining is that we were told that a NEW Trader Vic's location will be opening in Chicago!!!!!! Likely on Michigan Avenue, though I did not get the impression that Real Estate was actually secured, yet. It was also shared with us that much of the existing Chicago Trader Vic's interior would be carefully dismantled, stored & used in the new location. While a new location won't be the same at the historic location today, it sounds like it will still have some link to the heritage of the old location.

Timing was TBD, but sounded like MAYBE within a year.......Is there anyone out there who is more linked in with Trader Vic's & has more details they would be allowed to share?



Gee, that sounds familiar to me. Almost Kahiki familiar.

I was just looking at the Hotel Valley Ho's website and noticed Trader Vic's is promoting a celebrity chef, Charles Wiley, who was picked one of the top ten chefs in America by Food and Wine Magazine, and who will be designing the menu at the new Trader Vic's in Scottsdale. This must be a first for Trader Vic's, using a celebrity chef, and is probably a great move for the Scottsdale location and the company's other restaurants as well. Their food has improved a lot since the late 90s, but there is still room for more creativity in the menu. Bravo!

Whoa, great, and sharply-dressed minds, think alike (no comments about my pants, please. I'm sensitive when it comes to my trousers). I too was just looking at the hotel website. I am planning a little excursion down Phoenix way for mid-May and thought...no, prayed, to the gods of well-made cocktails...that the new Vic's would be open. Ah Ha! It is going to be open....June 4th.

Crap.

The rates are not too bad for the hotel, especially the Summer discount schedule. It will be worth a stay, I dare say. After June 4, that is.

Trader Vic's website indicates the Vegas location opens in December.

If so, there should be substantial progress made. Any updates?

Since I've just moved to Vegas, I've tried to stay on top of this - And it's bad news - The brass at the Aladdin and Vic's are now saying the Opening is delayed to June 2007... Boo.
