An example of a “high-end” Trader Vic’s, the Tokyo outpost opened on the fourth floor of the Garden Tower in the Hotel New Otani in 1974, making it the fourth-oldest remaining location. Formal and expensive, Trader Vic’s Tokyo is essentially a tiki museum you can drink in, with mostly original furniture and decorations, many of which are utterly priceless today. While pricey whiskey, cognac and cigars are served to accommodate the well-dressed Japanese locals and business travelers, tikiphiles will be excited to see that cocktails are based exactly off Vic Bergeron’s original recipes—the only location to still do so—and served in rare and original drinkware.
