About Trader Vic’s
Trader Vic’s Worldwide has a rich history of success and innovation that all began in 1934 when Vic “The Trader” Bergeron built a cosy little saloon on San Pablo Avenue in Oakland, California called Hinky Dinks. After embarking on an adventure to Cuba to refine his skills as a bartender and explore the subtleties of rums from around the world, The Trader transformed Hinky Dinks into a tiki-bedecked tropical retreat aptly named Trader Vic’s and put into practice his research on rums. Years ahead of his time, Vic began serving simmering plates of island-style cuisine, and Trader Vic’s quickly became one of America’s first fusion restaurant concepts. As popularity of Vic’s tiki haven grew, Trader Vic’s expanded to international shores in 1963 at London’s Hilton on Park Lane followed by a booming success in the Middle East in 1994 with multiple franchise openings. Today, the Trader Vic’s family of restaurants has locations in 17 countries across the globe. Taste The World® through exotic cuisines and imbibe from a collection of over 200 Trader Vic’s signature cocktails at the Home of the Original Mai Tai®.
