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

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

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.

A gem for sure but honestly having visited Vic's in Emeryville I don't understand the high praise for this location. It was certainly a lot of fun and the drinks were high quality as with all Vic's locations. It's just the decor was plain and the layout didn't flow very well.
