San Francisco-based, mai tai-peddling international tiki bar chain Trader Vic's has just opened its third location in Dubai. Located in the waterfront Festival City Mall complex, which houses over ninety restaurants and nearly 400 shops, the Vic's space is 10,000 square feet and is decked out in all the tiki trappings. Of the new opening Time Out Dubai notes, "the chain's heyday at home was decades ago — there are now only five venues left in the US — [but that] it seems to be catching on in the Middle East: this new opening is venue number nine in the region."
