Description:
This is the original Trader Vic's restaurant, formerly "Hinky Dink's" which was founded by Victor Jules Bergeron in 1934. After a trip to Southern California, "Trader Vic" Bergeron decided to change the decor and name of his restaurant:
"We went to a place called the South Seas that doesn't exist anymore and even visited Don the Beachcomber in Hollywood. In fact, I even bought some stuff from Don the Beachcomber. When I got back to Oakland and told my wife about what I had seen, we agreed to change the name of our restaurant and change the decor. We decided that Hinky Dinks was a junky name and that the place should be named after someone we could tell a story about. My wife suggested Trader Vic's because I was always making a trade with someone. Fine, I became Trader Vic."
