There are two Trader Vic's and a TV Mai Tai Lounge in Dubai.
The one in the Crown Plaza was small, very old-school (similar to Atlanta)and more "locals".
The one in the Jumeirah's Souk Madinat was more upscale, international and party central. It's in a resort mall and a short walk to the beach to see the Burj al Arab.
The Mai Tai Lounge was modern for sure and the most worried about me taking pics.
They each had Cuban bands, different! Cuban bands and the favorite drink was the Tiki Puka Puka, often served without the gardenia
All of the staffs were really friendly and I left with parting gifts!!

Pittsburgh pauly, there's this really cool technology you should look into...

It's called a digital camera. Also I understand there are some phones that are also cameras !!

Very excited to be going to Atlanta next week and will be staying within walking distance of the Atlanta TV's!

Sorry, had to share with someone who would appreciate it.

A what now? Ca-me-ra? New fangled contraptions!
I'll fish some out and post them to the three threads I started in Locating Tiki. I don't take many photos, seems like they get in the way of experience. (and the establishments seemed a little worried about having photographic evidence of Emiratees falling off the wagon. The bars, in theory, are for tourists only, as alcohol is forbidden in Islam.)

Naw, It was a once in a lifetime deal back in '09. The S.O. had a "Fam" trip, to familiarize himself with the location, I was +1 for a 4 night tour.
I don't see it in the cards to ever be back.

Looks like you'll be able to hit FOUR Trader Vic's while in Dubai. I just saw that one is opening in June in a development called Festival City.
I started a thread in locating tiki. It looks fairly old school!
