Trader Vic's Worldwide has a rich history of success and innovation that all began in 1934 when Vic "The Trader" Bergeron built a cozy little saloon on San Pablo Avenue in Oakland, California called Hinky Dinks.
After embarking on an adventure to Cuba to refine his skills as a bartender and explore the subtleties of rums from around the world, The Trader transformed Hinky Dinks into a tiki-bedecked tropical retreat aptly named Trader Vic's and put into practice his research on rums. Years ahead of his time, Vic began serving simmering plates of island-style cuisine, and Trader Vic's quickly became one of America's first fusion restaurant concepts.
Trader Vic's London celebrates over 50 years of paradise! This newly remodelled bar and restaurant at the London Hilton on Park Lane offers an eclectic collection of global cuisines using Chinese Wood-fired Ovens, tropical cocktails served in Trader Vic's signature glasses and an exotic atmosphere bedecked with authentic artefacts and trappings from around the world.
