Located within the Beverly Hilton Hotel , Trader Vic's, a popular nighttime spot, features a delicious Polynesian bar and menu selection. It's a traditional tiki bar straight out of the 1960's with tropical fruit drinks galore and a decor to match. Listen to music by the likes of Don Ho and watch the trendsetters pack the place on weekends and most weeknights. This is an experience you won't forget and feels strangely "L.A." even though the decor and menu are decidedly foreign.
A fine poolside eatery in the classy Beverly Hilton.
The tropical drinks ($14 each) include the original Mai Tai. Instead of the umbrella and the ugly little Hawaiian doll that came with original Trader Vics drinks, you just get a swizzle stick.
They serve some excellent entrees, both indoors and out, and service is perfect. The Indonesian lamb is magnificent.
Four stars, but also four dollar signs.
Okay - it's not the same as the restaurant but it's better than nothing. They still have those great funky drinks and fabulous crab rangoon and other fantastic appetizers. The new locale is kind of cool - next to the pool which has a drive-in size screen showing old (muted) movies - you can lounge by the pool - very romantic!
