Trader Vic's has been serving mai tais and its American-style menu since 1994, making it a Dubai veteran. It continues to be a hit because of its fun, relaxed style, and you don't have to dress to impress. The funky, colorful, Polynesian-themed decor is straight out of the '90s. The look is a bit past its sell-by date, but Trader Vic's is still an enjoyable spot with a live Cuban band that plays nightly. There's another location at Souk Madinat Jumeirah.
