I have made a concerted effort to compile a list of ALL of the Trader Vic's locations over at The Tikipedia (phew!). It includes addresses and, if known, when the location opened. If I don't know exactly when it opened I'm making a rough attempt to put it in chronological order based on marketing materials and photos.

Please take a look and feel free to add or change anything:

Man, I thought the Don The Beachcomber page was bad enough!

Also Las Vegas. This depressing post I did a while back documents some of the recent closings...

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=40602&forum=1&vpost=597746

Also add the closing of Palo Alto which I think was last year.

EDIT - Actually Palo Alto closed in 2012.

Do you mean the one at Olympic Blvd? Any idea when they opened?

Added Las Vegas. I already have Palo Alto in there, although I don't know what year it opened.

Crap. The Trader Vic's corporate website lists quite a few additional locations, but I have no idea when they opened. Added them at the bottom of the list.

It is on Olympic. I think it opened in 2009.

Thanks for looking, everybody! I think I've got all those corrections added. I don't have the close dates listed on this page. I considered it, but could only find that info on a few locations. I think that kind of info can go on the individual pages for these locations, which will be the next big task. And, of course, if anyone else wants to add them, knock yourselves out.
