The Trader Vic's located on the underground level of the Regency Palace Hotel of Amman, Jordan is a very nice place to dine and enjoy a musical night out.

It all started when Victor Jules Bergeron was a waiter at San Francisco's Fairmont Hotel and owned a grocery store on San Pablo Avenue in Oakland. His son - Victor, (Jr.) - grew up loving the food business, living with the family in an apartment above the store and helping out downstairs. A childhood accident cost him a leg, but left him with a penchant for telling colorful stories. The Trader Amman is a large, even huge hut built under the hotel lobby. Every other day, you can enjoy an international band singing couple of songs without annoying the guests. We started by the signature: Among Trader Vic's more tantalizing legacies is the original Mai Tai, the bracingly refreshing rum cocktail he created at the restaurant in 1944 and introduced to the Hawaiian islands in the 1950s. Tahitian for "the very best," Mai Tai became the slogan for his entire operation.

Music is just what's needed, simple and clear, sound is not too high and the ambiance is very pleasant. The restaurant lighting is very adequate for a dinner or just for enjoying a drink at the bar. Trader Vic's has been known all over the world for its Polynesian, Asian cuisine and its famous drinks. That night we tried many of its delicious sharing plates and spent the night away dancing on the bands tunes. Try it out, you'll surely love it.
