Bangkok Bars Closed On 28/08/10

Friday, August 27th, 2010

URGENT UPDATE – Due to local elections some of the go-go bars, beer bars and nightclubs will be closed in Bangkok on Saturday (28/08/10).  Pubs have been told not to serve alcohol, so Saturday is likely to be a dry day in most Bangkok bars.  The good news is that Pattaya is open and serving alcohol as usual, so you can plan accordingly.  I know that a number of guys have headed down to Pattaya for the weekend.

SOI COWBOY & NANA PLAZA UPDATE – Some go-go bars will be open in Soi Cowboy and Nana Plaza tonight (28/08/10).  Several bar bosses have decided to open, but not serve alcohol.  It is never easy to give accurate updates, because the situation often changes so quickly.  A number of bars will close and others will open, but it will probably be a dry day.  Several sources are saying that the MIB or Men In Brown will be out checking the bars in Bangkok tonight.  Thai Elections and Buddha Days are sometimes taken very seriously.  Tonight in Nana Plaza the four Rainbow Bars, Mercury, Mandarin, Spankys and Angelwitch will be open tonight.  It will be interesting to see what happens.

NANA PLAZA – ENTER THE NEON JUNGLE

Builders have been working around the clock to get the refurbishment finished in Spankys.  A brand new section of sofa seats not only makes it more comfortable, but it has increased the seating capacity.  It is a fact that Spankys is about 100% more popular now than when the Iranian owned it.

Later Closing Times Are Reinstated In Bangkok

After Dark Asia Volume 6 - Thailand Night FeverOnce again, later closing times have been reinstated across the nightspots in Bangkok.  While some people might not care either way, later closing times are essential for Bangkok’s nightlife industry.  Foreign visitors and expat residents alike want to go out and enjoy themselves.  Regarding the bar owners, less trading hours means considerably less takings.  It is no fun going along to your favourite bar only to see the boys in brown close it early.  Similar to any other country, the nightlife areas do not get going until later on in the evening.  Most people are looking to hit the town after their meal and some relaxation time.  We humans are such creatures of habit; we just won’t go out any earlier, no matter what time the bars close.  While Bangkok’s nightspots revert back to 2:00am closing, it’s evident that there is more on display in some of the go-go bars.
