This is one of the Tikis on the massive bamboo disguised support beams that are at an angle. Yes, it's Yuletide, and Vic's is decked out with lights and cheer.

Like any good Tiki palace, there is no one place to stand to photograph the entirety of it- but this gives a hint of the layering and immersiveness of Trader Vic's Atlanta.
