That would have been the Trader Vic's lounge at the Beverly Hilton.

Though she was coming out, she must not have been going out for a while, then.

Still one of the greatest Tiki crimes of the decade: That they ripped that place out for no reason.

Been there twice during January and February.
It has caught on.
While there are no more hula dancers and some additional sports jerseys have been added,
both on the walls as well as the patrons, the Tiki Room is so crowded that one has to wait in line
to get in.

My one disappointment is that they have not had any Mai Tai glasses for sale for about 6 months.

You can always order them online. You'll have pay shipping.

Christiki - They sell the Mai Tai glasses at Oceanic Arts. They have the white ones and the 75 year anniversary black ones. They are $9 each. Cheaper than at Trader Vic's.

I am going to head over to Vic's for a drink and Pupus on Wednesday before the Clipper - Memphis game. Have always enjoyed my visits here.

Now TV LA Live has no printed Mai Tai glasses. They should go to OA.

The Trader Vic's website is a good place to buy mugs, glassware and other goodies with the Trader Vic's logo. It's not as fun as going to TV or OA, but they might have something online that they don't carry in the restaurants.

6 mai-tai glasses for $50.00


6 old fashioned glasses for $50.00, but sold out of them as of writing this.

Just saw on the TV website under locations that LA Live isn't listed...
Does that portend it's demise?

That does look suspicious -- then again, their web site is so bad it wouldn't be surprising if they simply left it out by accident

Rob Roy posted on Facebook last night that Trader Vic's Los Angeles has closed. I did a search and their Facebook and Twitter accounts are also gone. I liked this Vic's, I couldn't go as often as I would have liked and I'm sad that it's no longer open.

Luckily when I really need a Trader Vic's Mai Tai the T.V. Lounge is only about 8 miles away.

It's a shame, but I have no faith in the Trader Vic's company at all. Overall, their restaurants are often poorly located and poorly executed. Their food is overpriced. Their bottled drinks mixes are bad. Their web site is a joke. Vic Bergeron must be rolling in his grave.
