Trader Vic’s-home of the original Mai Tai has locations throughout the world, and a couple in the United States, including one in Atlanta. Trader Vic’s in Atlanta is located in downtown, in the lower level of the Hilton Hotel. For our anniversary we decided to venture to Polynesia for some drinks and dessert to celebrate. The inside of Trader Vic’s as one can assume is decorated in a Polynesian style. Visitors feel like they are inside a rather lavish Tiki Hut.  Our anniversary fell on a Thursday this year, which worked out perfectly because Mai Tais are $6 on Thursdays, allowing us to try the original Mai Tai for a discounted cost. We have never had a Mai Tai so we don’t really have anything good to compare it with; however it was fun to try. Along with our Mai Tais we ordered a Citrus Cheesecake that was massive! We split the cheesecake, and we were barely able to finish it. The cheesecake was absolutely delicious, with a delicious crust and a flavorful raspberry coulis. We enjoyed exploring a new restaurant, with unique decor, and found it to be a fun atmosphere for a celebratory night out.
