TGI friday! and most bar and club owners in Bangkok will be glad to see the back of the Euro cup, as whilst great for European football enthusiasts, these events combined with heavy rain can only mean one thing – slow business.
Cowboy and Nana seem to have had a few OK days in the last week and the 3rd year anniversary party at Mercury Bar in Nana Plaza was a big success, thanks to everyone who showed up. On Patpong it’s been another story with bars noticeably quiet over the last couple of weeks. No doubt they will be breathing a big sigh of relief when the final passes this Saturday.
For all of us watching the pennies there are a couple of good deals about this weekend: Stumblein on soi Nana has a day time (9am to 6pm) special of just 100 THB on pints of draft Chang and Tiger beer.
I notice that Strip on Patpong is also offering 99 THB on all beers all night on Fridays, together with a sexy ripped Jeans party. I thought they all wore tight tiny jeans anyway? When you consider some bars now charge 180 THB for a beer this does seem a good deal and I can vouch for both venues as having good service, attractive girls and friendly managers. In the case of The Strip the manager always looks after regulars and will often give customers a free drink.
EQ late night club is having a special Euro cup final party on Saturday night and that might be interesting as they now have the pool tables and flat screen TV’s. It’s a nice atmosphere and could be a good place to take in the final.
