Set to open on March 4 2018, the tiki themed restaurant group will be opening doors to their new venue in Jumeirah.
Staying true to its identity, the new Trader Vic’s JBR, located in Hilton Dubai Jumeirah will feature tiki-themed interiors with Canoes from the Taiwanese Orchid Island hanging from the ceiling, tribal masks from Papua New Guinea on the walls, fishing net orbs from Japan on the tables and an original painting by Trader Vic himself placed behind the bar.
“Trader Vic’s is a world-famous restaurant brand and it’s a pleasure to partner with them again – this is my second time at opening a Trader Vic’s branch in a Hilton hotel,” Andreas Searty, cluster general manager at Hilton Dubai Jumeirah said.
“This new venue will be a fantastic addition to the food and beverage outlets that we operate at Hilton Dubai Jumeirah, and we expect it to be very popular with our hotel guests and the local JBR community. I’m looking forward to seeing it open,” he added.
The restaurant will feature semi-private booths by the windows, a raised center area and a dance floor in front of the stage while diners seated on the outdoor terrace can enjoy views of the Arabian Gulf and The Palm Jumeirah.
On entering the hotel’s lobby, vistors follow the huge hand-carved wooden Tikis up to the venue. There are a total of 34 Tikis inside, ranging in size, shape and type of wood – each with its own name and backstory from across the Polynesian countries.
