Trader Vic's new Chicago location is finally open! The restaurant wowed the press recently at a private event:
Indeed, Chicago is one of 28 Trader Vic's locations, and it's clear they've got "tropical" down to a science. The dining room and lounge call to mind an island getaway without resorting to fake fishing nets; instead, bamboo, foliage and lighting create an urban oasis. The massive cocktail menu features 82 drinks to evoke that "sand-between-your-toes" (and, perhaps later, that "sex-on-the-beach") feeling.
I'd recommend Trader Vic's after a long day of shopping and strolling in the Gold Coast, for Girls Night -- or to chase away those Chicago winter blues.
It's nice to see the establishment come back with a bang!
