Aloha to Trader Vic's Scottsdale

Tuesday July 05th, 2011

SCOTTSDALE, AZ – ‘The evolution of cool’ continues at Hotel Valley Ho, Scottsdale’s downtown resort.  On Saturday, July 30th, the hotel will bid its final “aloha” to Trader Vic’s Scottsdale, the iconic Polynesian restaurant known for its kitschy design, entrées from the Chinese wood-fired oven, and for being the inventor of the famous Mai Tai.

After the complete rehabilitation of the historic Hotel Valley Ho in December of 2005, property ownership brought the mecca of Polynesian cuisine and libations back to life from its previous home on the corner of 5th Avenue and Craftsman in Old Town Scottsdale. After five years of operation as an upscale, dinner-only restaurant, Trader Vic’s Scottsdale will be closing its doors to become Sands, a unique event venue.

Hotel Valley Ho welcomes diners to bid farewell to the legendary Trader Vic’s Scottsdale. Patrons who visit before July 30th will enjoy a free bottle of hand-selected wine when two or more dinner entrées are purchased. The restaurant hours of operation, until closure, will remain Tuesday through Thursday, 4:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 4:00 p.m. to midnight. Happy hour will continue Tuesday through Saturday from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. and again from 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. 

About Trader Vic’s at Hotel Valley Ho:  The legendary Trader Vic’s returned to Downtown Scottsdale in 2006 as a celebrated part of Hotel Valley Ho, and features Polynesian fare with a blend of Asian and French influences.  It has a unique island design with a mid-century modern feel, including traditional tikis, outrigger canoes, a fire pit, lush landscaping with a mini sand beach, generous bar area, and floor-to-ceiling glass throughout.
