Jackie,

Nice photo, I just got that in the mail this weekend from cheery old England. What a great shot of the Trader Vic's bar area when if first opened.

Here a full scan of the original photo which is 8 X 6.



A close up of the table with the great lamps and napkins.



The bar area sporting some nice old Trader Vic's mugs.



Have some other stuff from London that I will post later.

As promised, here is an early postcard I have from the London Trader Vic's.




The entrance




Close up of the dinning area with a glass wall looking into the Chinese Ovens.



The dinning room by the bar.



And, a Menehune matchbook.

Went by the other day and noticed a sign saying "Closed for Refurbishment", the Barney West Ku is no longer outside.
Lets pray to the Gods they do it right

According to their web site they will be closed for refurbishment from July 28th through August 16th. The Emeryville refurbishment in 2010 (also an "old school" location having opened in 1972, around the same time as London, Munich and Atlanta) was a big success so hopefully the London Trader Vic's will be better than ever.

I stopped by the London Trader Vic's last summer on my way back from Paris after seeing Sven Kirsten's Tiki Pop exhibit. The place was amazing with all of the old original décor intact!


Love that tapa carpet!

It was during World Cup, so we watched some soccer in the Tiki Room over Mai Tais.







I recently acquired this old super size matchbook from the Trader Vic's in London. Never seen one like this before.

Now that's some carpet I can get behind.

I was here last month. Will try to post pics soon. No mugs for sale and though she said she was "waiting for a shipment from San Francisco" I'm not sure if that was really the case or if they just didn't sell the mugs any longer. I literally would not leave the bar until they figured out how I was going to leave with one of the coconut mugs. They finally found one with a slight chip in the inner rim and just gave it to me. Hostess thought I was nuts. I thought she was beautiful. It all worked out. Had a nice dinner in the main dining room and drank two Mai Tais. Really great place.
