Atlanta, Georgia, United States
This Trader Vic's opened in the basement level of the Hilton Hotel in downtown Atlanta in 1976. This is the only one of the Trader Vic's locations in the United States today that has not been updated in a way that removes some of the original charm. There have been ebbs and flows in the quality of the drink offerings over the last decade or so, but its value as a piece of Polynesian Pop history has helped it remain an important attraction.
I've been in three times in the past three years, and the experience has been at least "good" each time. One time the food & service was a little off. Something was going on with the staff that night.
It's not a Tiki Bar; it's a Tiki restaurant with a bar, and it is BEAUTIFUL. You won't find a more gorgeous place in Atlanta of any theme.
It's Trader Vics, so the mugs are awesome, and the drinks are too. Get in there and enjoy the place before some unfortunate turn of events closes this beauty down.
I was here for a Popular Culture Association conference while I was attending school to earn my PhD. Stopped by Trader Vic's with a couple of fellow students.
