Lei’d Back Sessions at Trader Vic’s

Home of the Original Mai Tai still going strong after more than 50 years

London’s first Polynesian inspired restaurant and bar, Trader Vic’s, located at London Hilton on Park Lane, will be hosting a series of exclusive acoustic nights in 2016. Trader Vic’s ‘Lei’d Back Sessions’ will showcase new, rising talent once a month, kicking off with the ‘Lei’d Back’ first gig on March 3rd 2016.

The bar at Trader Vic’s provides a vibrant and vivacious evening, as guests will be treated to live music from handpicked artists, whilst the 73-strong cocktail menu will be available to sample, including the ever-popular Trader Vic’s Mai Tai!

‘Lei’d Back Sessions’ kicks off on 3rd March at 8.30pm with The Island Experiment, who bring live music from a collective of singers, musicians, artists, writers and everyday folks who love music.

Following artists include Loretta Heywood, a soulful songstress best known for her ethereal vocals with 90′s electronic band Bomb The Bass on April 7th, and sultry Blues singer Annie Bea, who has what some call an encyclopaedic knowledge of jazz lyrics influencing her tone and style, on May 5th.

First opened in 1963, Trader Vic’s was frequented by the stars, such as George Harrison, Marlon Brando, Elton John through to Paris Hilton and Cristiano Ronaldo and it still remains as one of London’s favourite Mayfair restaurant and bars. The restaurant’s look takes inspiration from island sunsets and lush foliage and serves its notorious international cuisine using its custom-made wood-fired Chinese ovens, which can be traced back over two thousand years to the Han Dynasty.

Trader Vic’s bar is open from 5 p.m. – 1 a.m. Sunday to Thursday, 5 p.m. – 3 a.m. Friday and Saturday.

With over 24 establishments across the world, Trader Vic’s offers a tropical retreat from city life, serving up international cuisine and expertly crafted cocktails. Trader Vic’s London is one of three restaurants located in Europe and the only Trader Vic’s in the UK.

Trader Vic’s restaurant is open daily from 6 p.m. – 11.30 p.m. For Trader Vic’s, call +44 (0)20 7208 4113 or email tradervics.parklane@hilton.com
