Usual Trader Vic's fare, good food and drinks with a great band playing. Recommend the 5 spice crispy duck. Bar area is far too claustrophobic for the amount of people however the restaurant is despite being a little dated well laid out with good service,

Great place for after work or early drinks. Fantastic service with friendly staff. Well known for their varied and fabulous cocktails. Bar menu delicious too. Happy hour and a great band. Can't say enough always had a good time here. It's been established for a while and is a firm favourite.

Traders Vic's is a bar overlooking SZR & has dimly lit ambience, which is very soothing & just perfect for the evenings. Quirky menus, both food & drinks. They have a signature drink called Tiki Puka Puka, which is quite high on alcohol but something really really interesting. Had prawns, cheese balls & chicken satay during drinks out of which...

I like the Trader Vic's brand & generally they are a 5/5 but this one located in the Crown Plaza was average at best. Located on the 3rd floor of the office block of the Crown Plaza. It's very small, I think they call it intimate, with over priced beer (45dhs / £9:90 / $12:25 / €11:45 for a bottle... More

Trader Vic's is definitely worth a visit if you are looking for a wide selection of drinks to choose from. Their food selection is pretty decent and the atmosphere; for the most part, was very light and fun. Their prices are pretty average for Dubai. The music they play their is very good and the live music (starting at 9pm)... More

Trader Vic's inside of the Crown Plaza is a nice place to grab a drink. It is extremely small and very dark. There was a small band that played and sang songs that ranged from present day hits. Small dance floor with few people dancing. The food is definately over-priced and is nothing to brag about.
