Keep the photos coming!!
Those are some awesome shots of all that Tapa!! I don't think I have ever seen such a big piece!! It looks nice and authentic too!!

SERIOUS QUESTION HERE, what is the address, or atleast the location, of the new L.A. Trader Vic's??
I have been on their new website but didn't see any address or that sort of info.

We are heading that way in early April and might try to swing it.

Thanks, TabooDan

I think it's great that it's opening on tax return deadline day. We'll all need a large cocktail THAT night! Maybe I missed this post, but is there going to be some kind of special opening party that day/night? Or is it a "just show up" thing when it opens that day?

I think it's a soft opening on April 15th but Tax Day makes everyone soft already, right?
I visited Trader John at LA Trader Vic's today. He showed me around the new Trader Vic's, Chinese oven, monkey pod bar, carved panels, miles of tapa and bamboo. After the disappointment of Beverly Hill's and especially Las Vegas, this restored my faith in what To expect from a Trader Vic's. I'd love to show you all more pictures but this site is being kept under wraps for now and I'm abiding by their wishes. Here is one picture of the interior to give you all a peek. They were installing the bar while I was there and the bamboo has to be some of the biggest I've ever seen in a Tiki palace which this is destined to be. IMNSHO

This is going to be great, I just realized that I haven't been to TV's since my son was born, almost 3 years. And I live near _three_ of them...

Going to be visiting this one for sure when we go on our Disneyland trip in May.

Yeah Chris, the two Marqs will flank the entrance and the third larger tiki will be on the other end of the front of the building. Placement could change, but this is as I know it.
