I have been to Ireland three times and never found anything Tiki.



It's going to be a Mai Tai Lounge.
It looks like Vic's is "selling out".

How about "staying open".

Oh I don't know but I heard a whisper of a sniff of a suggestion that one city in Scotland might be getting a tiki bar possibly in the near-ish future.

Wowowowow - a tiki bar in Scotland?! Hope this is true. I'm not bothered if it's not Trader Vic's - non-chains are better anyways.

Looks like Manchester is a real tiki hub in northern England now! I used to live so close to Manc too!

The Trader Vic's at Corbin Park (Kansas City, KS) has been in the works for about three years now. In fact, they were supposed to open this time last year. Nothing as yet, and I'd given up on it. Maybe . .

Yeah, I know. But it's all about demographics and taxes. This is from the Market Overview section of the
Corbin Park website:

im afraid this list is pure illusion/wishful thinking ...

... they failed in places like BERLIN und LAS VEGAS ...

... and think they can make it in some places which are even too ridiculous
to mention - at least in context with opening a TRADER VICS there !

Sweeeeeeet! I only just noticed this.

First I saw Birmingham and thought, "Great, but it's in a shithole".
Then Leeds and thought "Woah....striking distance!"
Finally Manchester and that just about blew my bags.

What amazing, totally unexpected news!

PS Have faith my Scottish friends. It looks like the Tiki resurgence is travelling rapidly northwards!
