This Trader Vic's Munich cocktail menu lists a location in Kazakhstan.

465 Gornaya Street (Medeu Stadium)
Almaty, Kazakhstan

I don't know when it opened or if it's still there, but it appears to have existed at least for a while. See this review...

According to Wikipedia, Medeu Stadium had a major renovation in 2011. Maybe the restaurant opened then?

Now that's some sleuthing! I like it. I'll do a bit more digging and get it added.

Can't forget the Boston Trader Vic's that was at the Park Plaza Hotel.

Funny that the Boston one doesn't seem to be listed here on TC. It has now been added (without a date, but guessing early 60s based on ephemera), along with Kazakhstan. Any others?

Edit: Turns out the one in Boston was in the Statler Hotel, which later became the Park Plaza. I found a postcard of it postmarked 1966.

Okay, I have a date for Toronto: June, 1975, per this website.



Ad from Toronto Life, June 1975.

The Hotel Toronto became the Westin in 1980 and the Toronto Hilton in 1987. I don't know when Vic's closed. This location seems to be one of the most poorly documented of all the Vic's.
