Best Bar Team of the Year!

Published June 10, 2015

Having written the book on bartending in his Bartender’s Guide by Trader Vic, Vic “The Trader” Bergeron single-handedly, although sometimes with two, concocted international notoriety as a mixology master with creations like the Original Mai Tai®, Samoan Fog Cutter and over 200 signature tropical creations. At Trader Vic’s, we continue the tradition with a bar staff as savvy as The Trader himself. We are proud to congratulate Bar Manager Anjula, General Manager Eric Fabie and the rest of the Trader Vic’s Madinat team for winning Best Bar Team of the Year at the Caterer Middle East Awards!

Trader Vic’s Tidbit!

Published May 7, 2015

In 1944, with a bit of serendipity and plenty of mixology prowess, Vic “The Trader” Bergeron used a bottle of 17-year-old Jamaican J. Wray Nephew rum as a base to concoct the most perfect tropical cocktail on the planet – the Mai Tai, Paradise In A Glass®.

Today, you’d have a rather difficult time locating a bottle of this rare batch, but if you did it’s likely to set you back £26,000 or $42,790.80!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Published May 5, 2015

Vic “The Trader” Bergeron was truly inspired by Mexican culture. After multiple visits exploring Mexico, Vic opened a restaurant named Señor Pico. First established in 1965 at Ghirardelli Square in San Francisco, Señor Pico offered a menu of fine Mexican and early Californian cuisines set amid handcrafted décor he collected along his travels. As popularity grew, Señor Pico expanded to Los Angeles and inspired The Trader to not only write his seventh cookbook “Trader Vic’s Book of Mexican Cooking,” but create a private label of tequilas for his Señor Pico restaurants.
