Humuhumu’s description

This Trader Vic's is located in the Beverly Hilton and until 2004 was owned by Merv Griffin -- the hallway between the hotel and the restaurant is lined with blown-up black & white photos of Griffin with various celebrities from the 70s and 80s. It was originally called The Traders. Its location at the edge of Beverly Hills attracted some of the vintage set of celebrities. As with the other U.S. Trader Vic's locations, if you order a Mai Tai, be sure to order it "made the old way" to get the authentic recipe.
The Beverly Hills Trader Vic's last day of business was on April 29, 2007. After 50-plus years of operation, this Los Angeles institution was closed, to make way for the development of a tower of condos or hotel rooms.
A few bits of the restaurant have been moved to a bar near the pool area, which is called Trader Vic's Lounge

I miss this Trader Vic's soooooooo much! I have had a few wonderful birthdays there over the last 10 years, and I've celebrated New Years there a few times.. it was a great place. They had excellent food.. I miss the Beef Cho-Cho something awful!
