Found a few photos of the great entrance to the Trader Vic's at the Bel Air East.

This one really gives you some perspective on the scale of the massive A-Frame entrance.



And a photo of the entrance from the street with the Barney West Tikis.

Man those Tikis were huge. What ever happened to them !? And that A-frame on that building - classic example of the meeting of modern and primitive.

"CLUB MISSISSIPPI COVE" on the entry doors lintel - don't know if that was contemporary with the original restaurant.

I remember the tikis but did not look at them closely for materials.

the author claims the opening was on December 5, 1963.
