I have two of this bug eyed moai mugs in light brown and no one is marked with a Trader Logo. Perhaps something special in Thailand.



Sorry about that, I guess I misread your comments

We had a lovely night at Trader Vic's on Friday night, the first time I visited was back in 2008 when I was travelling around the world. But since I've been living in Bangkok for almost three years I've only visited one other time. So we thought it was about time we paid it another visit.

Trader Vic's in located what was the Marriott Spa but has since changed hands and is now the
Anantara Bangkok Riverside Resort & Spa, also I've read that in October last year Trader Vic's was refurbished and I had read an online review that the bar had been de-cluttered. I went hoping they hadn't refurbished all the tiki out of Trader Vic's.

Bangkok is a very big city and the Anantara is quite far down the river and quite far away from the city center. So if your planning on visiting don't take a Tuk-Tuk, it's too far to travel in an un-air conditioned three wheel death trap. If your taking a taxi have a map printed in Thai, pay to take the toll roads and expect to spend a long time in traffic.

The best way to get there is use the Sky Train, make your way to SAPHAN TASKIN BTS station and leave by exit 2, go down the steps towards the river boats and get the free Anantara courtesy boat from pier 3.



Then it's a delightful 20 minute trip down the Chao Phraya River..



..and the boat only docks at the hotel, then follow the signs to Trader Vic's.



They have changed the bar from the old brown colonial style bar..

Thanks to the wet season it was a nice night so we decided to drink outside also it was the best way to avoid the live band.



On my previous visits I had found the cocktails a little disappointing, so was surprised to see the drinks menu had changed and it now boasted six different Mai Tais, so I started with the 1944 Mai Tai, which was the second best Mai Tai I've ever had. My friend Ben ordered the Mai Tai wave which was taster selection of the different Mai Tais.



We then proceded to make quite a dint on the menu, I think by the end of the evening I had 1944 Mai Tai, the Dr Funk, the spiced grog, the coffee grog, something really strong (almeda ae?) and a tiki bowl.



The Tiki Bowls went down really well, at 350baht they are cheaper than a bucket of mekong whiskey in any tourist trap.

I just visited Bangkok and went to the Trader Vic's there twice, once on a regular night (taking the shuttle boat) and once for their New Year's special dinner. I agree with what's been said before, it's pricey, but I think the drinks are more than worth it. They beat the drinks at the Bahrain Trader Vic's easily, lately the Mai Tai's there have been getting blander and tarter but the ones in Bangkok were great. The '44 Mai Tai was especially delicious. I also had a Bangkok Sour, it uses local whiskey, that goes down really well. The E'Ville Awa wasn't bad either.

Overall I enjoyed the atmosphere of the place, though both times I visited it was pretty dead. The staff was very friendly and nice.

The (non-live) music tended towards Caribbean beats and jazz, which I think worked in that environment.

OK I know this thread has been a little old. But I figured I would ask here.

Has anyone seen the Mai Tai Wave (Surf Board, and three glasses) sell anywhere? I've checked the usual, Ooga-Mooga, ebay, google, etc. and I can't find a single sale of these.

I recently visited the Abu Dhabi Trader Vic's, they have them for sale for roughly $68. I know Trader Vic's stuff can get expensive, but this just seems high to me. Nothing on their website is this high, but they don't sell the Mai Tai Wave on their website.

Again, I'd normally check Ooga-Mooga first, but there is not a single person on there with the Mai Tai Wave. Which seems odd to me since they do sell it here.

So has anyone ever seen the Mai Tai Wave sell somewhere? What would others value the Mai Tai Wave at?

Thanks in advance for the replies.
