SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- November 16th, 2014 marks the 80th anniversary of Trader Vic's as a family owned global enterprise. As we reach this astonishing benchmark, we are proud that Trader Vic's is as popular as it has ever been and continues to expand. Over the years Trader Vic's has grown into an internationally recognized brand with over 25 restaurants in 13 countries.
In addition to celebrating our 80 years in business, 2014 ushers in the 70th year of the legendary Mai Tai, one of the most famous cocktails in the world and Paradise in A Glass®. Invented in 1944 by Victor Bergeron, the Mai Tai has become the most replicated tropical cocktail of all time. Let's not forget our incredible array of popular libations, including the Tiki Puka Puka & Samoan Fog Cutter, to name a few, along with our world-class cuisine.
Our flagship restaurant in Emeryville, California overlooking the San Francisco Bay since 1972 from its original location in Oakland in 1934, has been a popular destination for three generations. Last year marked the 50th anniversary of Trader Vic's first international location at Trader Vic's London on Park Lane. This year, a number of our locations are celebrating their own milestones. Trader Vic's Tokyo rings in 40 years. Trader Vic's Abu Dhabi at the Beach Rotana Hotel and Trader Vic's Dubai Crowne Plaza have flourished for 20 years in the Middle East. Looking forward to other anniversaries, Trader Vic's Atlanta will ring in 40 years in 2016!
Plans are in the making to roll out a new concept on the West Coast of the United States in 2015. Trader Vic's Mai-Tai Lounge combines island style atmosphere with the luau pairing deliciously-prepared small plates & bar bites with a collection of tropical cocktails for one, two or more.
