Unhopeful sounding comments on the re-opening of nightlife in Pattaya

Link Here14th September 2021
There has been a long running plan to reopen Pattaya to foreign visitors under the horribly restrictive and expensive 'sandbox' model as is currently running in Phuket. The original paln is to open a Chonburi scheme on October 1st but maybe more a little more likely in mid-October.

However that does not seem to mean that visitors will be enjoying bars and GoGos. In fact, it is not even sure if restaurants would be able to sell alcohol, a lockdown easing implemented in some provinces. Pattaya News reports:

The decision, to be fair, is not that of the Pattaya Mayor or Chonburi Governor. The closure of nightlife and bars and banning of alcohol at restaurants is a mandate from the Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration, or CCSA, in Bangkok. Although it is true that enforcement differs greatly across the country, Pattaya, as a whole, has been fairly strictly enforced with authorities well aware that Pattaya is the epicenter of nightlife and bars in Thailand.

The CCSA has shown themselves to be, so far, exceedingly cautious and conservative around anything involving alcohol, continually stating that they believe alcohol-related gatherings and events are the highest-risk activities at spreading Covid-19. The CCSA has not given, or outlined a plan, on reopening entertainment, bars, concerts, and nightlife in the country at this time.



Rising from the depths...

It's always good to see new bars arising but one has to worry about whether the coronavirus situation will ease soon enough to allow them to open.

Octopussy signage has appeared on the upcoming bar street Soi Boomerang off Soi Buakhao. Hopefully it rise from the depths come the end of the lockdown.




Ninja A-GoGo makes way for Dove Club

Ninja A-GoGo at about the centre of Soi LK Metro was killed off some time during the coronavirus lockdowns of 2020.

The venue has been gutted and is being reborn as Dove Club A-GoGo.

One suspects that there will have to be a truce in the war with covid before the venue can open its doors though.



A dry cough...
