I think they chose a not so great location to reopen in. The Palmer House was a great location and got a lot of regulars as well as tourists and business travelers. They should have moved a little further down and closer to all of the hotels in the Loop and I think they would have succeeded. Of course, it also takes good management and good chefs too.

And sadly, a similar fate has now come to Trader Vic's Scottsdale, who never really embraced the tiki community, instead opting for the very fickle, and not at all loyal, 30-thousand-dollar-a-year-millionaire crowd, and sadly, you can see where that got them.




But, if one owned a business, one would want a larger market with disposable income, not a small single-interest group. If the Tiki crowd were that strong, Drift would still be open.

So is TV in chicago dead?

If so, is there another worthy Tiki bar in the city?
