I just wanted to make this point clear. It shows on Oooga-Mooga as mfg. by Tiki Farm. It's a knock-off...

The Ooga Mooga template has been corrected.

Interesting that Trader Vic's is involved. Trader Vic's sued Trader Tiki because of the word "trader."
I haven't followed B-ball in 25 years and I would never gamble on The Clippers. At least not to win.

TVLA is adapting to their potential customers. Having been there twice in the last 6 months, not a lot, but sufficient, both times the Tiki room, and to a lesser extent, the dining room, were occupied by sports fans.

In 2011, I noted that TVLA was relatively empty, but the sports bar YardHouse was overflowing with customers.

I wish it didn't have to be the case, as I miss the OG TVLA. Now, the big screen blocks the TIki decor where the Hula dancers used to perform, the Tiki mug has "Clippers" emblazoned on it and there are autographed jerseys hanging on the walls instead of PNG shields. But, it is open, making $$$ and looks like it will stay open, unlike the TV in Beverly Hills, Scottsdale and Vegas.

It's inevitable that they have to cater to the sports crowd. You have the Lakers, Clippers, and LA Kings playing next door at Staples Center. I'll put up with some sports items as long as it keeps the place open and in business. I do love the Yardhouse by the way. They have an excellent assortment of beers on tap. I pop in to Trader Vics whenever I see a game at Staples or a concert at Nokia. For a lot of people, this is their closest exposure to "tiki" without just driving by.

Yet Trader Vic's in Portland is handily holding its own as a tiki/tropical establishment. So is it management? The surrounding area? The people? The food? Vic's in Palo Alto had superb food, and the atmosphere was pretty good, and it is now a steakhouse. Interesting how these things transpire. I'm looking forward to reading the comments of others.

There are enough "Sports Bars" around, we really don't need another one, do we?
I want Tiki Bars to succeed but not if they have to make a deal with the Devil
to do so, I hate Sports Bars & the fanatics that populate them, which goes against
everything that makes a Tiki Bar, what it is.

Until they change the war clubs on the doors to golf clubs, I think there is nothing to worry about. Rent ain't cheap there at LA Live, which is why I always stop by and support with my business because there have been way too many Trader Vic's that have closed down. It is what it is, I suppose.

Yes, more tiki bars are needed, and to be very clear, ones which have a whole different vibe than sports bars. Although even my favorite local craft cocktail bars get very busy at night with video displays, loud talking, and loud music. I often find that holding conversations in these places is very difficult except during off-hours. In my mind I value the ability to visit establishments with environments which don't cause stress, where I can relax with friends, while sharing quality cocktails. That's very hard to do in a sports bar. It's also one of the reasons I've invested in building out a home bar. When businesses cannot provide what I like, I am happy that I can approximate it in my home.
