Emeryville, being family owned will hopefully go on for quite some time. I don't know enough about the Atlanta group which has the franchise, but reports from friends suggest that it is doing well enough to keep going. Perhaps along with the foreign locations we'll have at least the two for awhile longer.

Here is part of the booklet that Bigbro referenced back on page 4 of this thread documenting the construction of the Beverly Hilton and the Trader's Restaurant by Richard Cromwell from the motion picture industry. It includes a photo and reference to the Tiki carver Adalbert T. Clements.




Opened August 11, 1955.

Now that is cool! A-Frames and tail fins! I just grabbed one on ebay. The large fishtrap lights from Trader Vic's (including the one under the A-Frame entrance) now reside at Tiki Ko in Bakersfield.
