    Maybe???
    Although it would add a full day of driving to our drive back from Nashville to Montreal, I think It might be worth it.

Humuhumu’s description

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.

How to find it

2
The restaurant is in the lower level of the Atlanta Hilton; in the main elevators, look for the button that says TRADER VIC'S.

It's so bad in everything but decor I'm almost offended. Live band is currently playing yacht rock, which I'm down with, but not when I'm at a tiki bar. The mai tai was horrendous, I forgot the other drink I had but it tasted like cough syrup . The bartender was irritated when I asked him for a swizzle stick.

And there's a tv showing baseball.


Cool for the history.... but ugh

Maybe I was there on an off night but I was not impressed. Sports on the TV, bro patrons, and weird-almost rude encounters with the bartender.
Vic's brand rum and mixers do not help things...

It's a beautiful subdued bar though. Very different than Emeryville.

My happiest of happy places. Once those elevator doors open in the basement, I get a whiff of the thick bacony aroma of meat under heat. I get a rest for the eyes with the lights turned-down low. And I am transported away. Tiki mission accomplished, again.
