Trader Vic's - Tiki Restaurant

Fun place; be sure to explore a bit. Although the flat screens showing sports programs ruins the ambience in one of the big rooms, the velvet paintings, masks, art, and food are worth the trip. Drinks arrive in authentic tiki mugs; huge skulls and rum. Bowls with extra long straws for group sips.
