I just think its interesting among the doom and gloom that there is always someone who is giving it a go, no matter what the naysayers say.

Right on,I know people who have made a small fortune from a part share in a gogo bar ( mind you they started with a big one )

Most bars have more staff than customers, gogos probably 5-1. had a businessman sit beside me this winter in a gogo in pattaya, he commented on how can these bars stay open, no customers in most,

Great.    Did you notice I started this thread in the Pattaya Forum?

Well Hooters Pattaya was roasted by the expat community in Pattaya from the first day they opened and for years afterwards.......But Hooters just ignored all the zillions of negative expat posts and t

Perhaps simply committed before all this started..... anyone coming along later would bide their time, and very likely get a much better rental and lease deal, and not waste money having a bar not allowed to open.

Good point re timing, could well have been in process when the current problems hit.

I like ScubScuba's ^^ relay analogy, first guy out the blocks starts with baton and tries to establish a lead ahead of the opposition, normally he hands over the baton and on and on, however in the current climate I think he'll reach the first bend and no one is there to pass it on to.

 

I wish him luck, I think he might need some in the current bar zombie apocalypse

More like he's now running the marathon, and carrying a baton.   🙂

Saw a pick-up this morning emptying the fixtures and fittings of a little bar round the corner from me. Wasn't my faavourite bar but it was my favourite hairdresser, which the lady did as well. Feel very sorry for her,nice woman as were here staff. 

Will need to find a new one now.

I have already exchanged phone numbers or instant message apps with my salon lady and told her if / when she comes back to let me know.  I did the same with an old Thai lady that mends clothes.  She does a good job hemming new trousers.  My driver has gone back to Issan, but for obvious reasons I have had no need to go to the airport, but I told him to let me know when he was back in town.  Motorbike mechanic is still in town, but bike is not due for a service for sometime.  My masseuse (proper massage) went back to Issan, also told her to let me know when she is back. 

 

It took a while to build a rapport with these people.  I hope they all make it back to Pattaya, and continue where they left off, when this is over.  I also hope the majority of my favorite places are still operating, but I can't see them all surviving.

My masseuse came round to my house yesterday and did 5 of us in a block booking.

 

My seamstress continued throughout. Started making bespoke masks and has made a killing.

My masseuse who does in calls is still here.  I called her some time ago and she said she was quite busy.  She's not as good as the other girl, but still pretty good.  She probably shouldn't have told me she was busy, because due to the risk of infection, I didn't book a massage with her. 

 

Some people / businesses have seen more customers and profits since all this started.  Good luck to them.

What was Buakhao Bistro, has suddenly became "Senor Taco" "Mexican Taqueria"

They put a fair bit of money in Baukhao Bistro some time ago.  Do you know if it is change of theme, or change of owner and theme?

Walked into Buakhao Bistro one night and turned round again and walked out....some diners having finished their meal were smoking...bad enough in any restaurant never mind a tiny place like that...hopefully if new owners have taken over it will be outlawed....:thumbsup:

Out of common courtesy, don't most smokers just pop outside and have a smoke these days, regardless of whether it's permitted, or not?
