Are those "whoopie-floats"? Better check before you sit...

This looks very promising. We'll be sending out a canoe from the island with a recon party, and on the prowl for Flaming Beef Cho-Chos...

Oooo.

Does anyone know if the bar is open to the public on Saturday, May 2nd? I know the dining room is already booked, but we were thinking of dropping by for a drink, and to check the place out. If Trader John knows, please let us know. I was planning on bringing friends and wouldn't want their first experience at the new LA Vic's to be turned away at the door. But would love to step through the doors on opening night, if it's possible.

BTW - Great to see some of the treasures from the Trader Vic's warehouse make their way to the new location! We saw that Papua New Guinea mask when we were at the warehouse sale last year, and were hoping it would find its way south.

Also, it would be great to organize a Tiki Central night there. Bet the turnout would be pretty good!

Any word on a Happy Hour? I'm guessing $5 drinks and 1/2 priced appetizers like Scottsdale might be too much to hope for, but everywhere in Downtown LA has some sort of HH deals. I'm guessing weekdays only, but any specs would be appreciated as I ready my liver for launch...

I'm getting excited! I read this today:

Quote:
The décor at Trader Vic's at L.A. LIVE reflects the elements of the traditional tiki bar: beautiful carved wood, tiki masks, tribal décor, lots of plants, and comfortable booths and tables. The glass-enclosed Chinese oven sits centered in the back of the restaurant, so patrons can watch the master chefs at work. Much of the décor was created by a family in Tonga, including the tribal tapa cloth on the walls and the carved wooden doors and wall panel. Some items have come from other Trader Vic's locations, such as the outrigger that hangs from the ceiling in the event room, which came from the Dallas location, and part of the bar, which came from the Chicago location; the other part of the bar came from Osaka, Japan.



"Traditional", YES! It looks like Happy Hour is daily from 4:00 to 6:00, plus Tuesday is Tiki Central night!:

Quote:
Live entertainment is featured Friday and Saturday, and drink specials are available from 4-6 pm daily during "Tiki Time." Trader Vic's at L.A. LIVE will also be hosting Mai Tai Mondays with a special invitation to people who work in the restaurant industry; and Tiki Central Tuesdays for the faithful tiki fans who belong to that group, and other special evenings.

Open table is stating that internet reservations are only available for the 3rd and after but I would love to come Saturday instead. Is there another way to make reservations for Saturday?

Will there be a menu posted on the website prior to the grand opening?

Does anyone know if there will be live music opening day, Saturday May 2nd? And if so, what time?

I was wondering that, as well. Also, wondering if the "drink specials" will be a-flowin' on opening day?
The Boyfriend and I definitely wanna hit the Lounge on Saturday as a little pre-birthday for me (May 6 = 41! ack!). I'll need plenty of mai tais to start the birthday week off right!

I just read this whole thread for the first time and I'm, a little confused.

When Bamboo Ben was building Frankies here in Vegas he told me his next project was the Trader Vics in L.A.

Yet it doesn't seem like he had anything to do with it.
