NANA PLAZA – WELCOME TO THE NEON JUNGLE
This news might come as something of a surprise to you, but the owners of Nana Plaza have been digging into their pockets. According to the Nana Plaza management (Nana Castle), the escalator next to Lucky Luke’s Bar inside Nana Plaza should be operational in about one week. The new escalator is now operational. Apparently, the job was finished before expected – that is a shock by Thai building standards! It has not been repaired, but instead it has been replaced by a brand new escalator. For those of you who are not keen on using lifts, or stairs, the new escalator will be an excellent alternative. By installing the new escalator, I think it will please everybody, but especially the disabled. Fellow internet columnist Baron Bonk should be thrilled with the new escalator. We can now send dear ole Baron Bonk up to greater heights! Combined with a clear pathway at the entrance to Nana Plaza, it will be much easier to enter and exit, plus go up to the middle level.
Recently I have spoken to Khun Num who runs Rainbow 1 and Rainbow 3, about the old Farang Connection. (If you cannot quite remember, Farang Connection was located next door to Rainbow 3 on the middle level in Nana Plaza). If you did not know, Khun Num has taken over the lease and is currently building a Thai restaurant there. The building work is progressing steadily as we speak. The new owner has hinted that he thinks he will just sell Thai food. I am sure that it is not easy, or cheap to hire a chef who can cook both Eastern and Western cuisine to international standards. More interestingly, with some of the hot babes that will be dining here, it definitely will not be your average Thai noodle shop! (more…)
