I just googled that name. I am shocked.

I have been there once, terribly terribly drunk with my sister to celebrate her 21st. I remember meeting a couple from Iran and there were a lot if Indian men. 

I remember women trying to take me right in front of my (Thai) wife, but I was too drunk to respond. To be honest a very fun night, but I discovered my dear sister had an odd thing for Indian men. 

 

I have no idea where this place actually is, loung (uncle) took us here when we discovered the ambassador spicy on Suk Soi 11 was closed.

 

I do remember it being a very interesting place that I would like to return to and are how much of what I saw was real and how much of my vision was blurred by the drink.

My guess is 40 % survive. 

 

It wouldn't be a bad thing if some of the smaller ones with older bigger girls close up shop.

Don't be mistaken. Cooperatives like Can Do bar might become the new business model.

hopefully a decent number of bars will close...

the reduced availability of jobs and bars needing X number of warm bodies

should results in culling the overnutritioned and esthetically-challenged girls

that make up an all too high percentage of the girls massaging the poles...

In principle I agree with you.

I spoke about this with a fried. His opinion was that it's more likely that the overnutritioned and esthetically-challenged girls will continue to work in bars. And the pretty young girls will find better options.

I hope my friend is wrong and you are right.

What's the guess that the surviving gogo's will put up their prices?

The ones that are illegal money laundering businesses will survive, and there are many.

The virus has effected illegal operations as well, both in Thailand, and worldwide.  Sure, there will still be money to be cleaned, but perhaps not in the amounts as before.

I watched a video today from Walking Street last night, mostly girls and very few foreign men. Not sure how much longer these bars can continue paying staff with so few customers. The freelancer bars/clubs rely on the men spending money as the girls just nurse their drinks all night waiting for a guy to buy them more.

I think I seen this on Tuckers program. It sure does make one wonder who's spin is more accurate. I agree with you waiting for the cure is devastating countries economies,civil liberties and one's ability to work!

Getting back to Go GO , I miss it very much

 

That chart is a measure of what portion of people who actually get CV end up dying from it. So if just two people in a country contract CV and one of them dies from it, that's a 50% CFR.

 

It says NOTHING about the extent to which people are contracting and dying from CV anywhere in the world. Those kinds of measure are total fatalities from CV, or, even more telling, total fatalities from CV per 100,000 or 1 million population.

 

The UK is No. 2 on the following per capita CV deaths list by country. The U.S. is No. 9 in the world, neither being a ranking that anyone would want (ranked by deaths per million population):

I believe I read yesterday that the U.S. now is once again back above 1,000 CV deaths per day in the past week.


From Johns Hopkins CV report of July 24:

Quote

 

On July 22, the CDC reported more than 1,000 deaths for the first time since early June, and it has now exceeded that threshold for the second consecutive day. The US could potentially surpass 150,000 deaths by the end of next week

 

Additionally, both of the last 2 updates exceeded the daily incidence for the corresponding day from the previous week by more than 2,000 cases. The 7-day average daily incidence is 66,920 cases, the country’s highest to date, indicating that daily incidence continues to increase, even if it is potentially beginning to level off.

Doesn't surprise me. I have friend who was/is managing a sports bar in BKK, it hasn't reopened after lockdown and he is now picking up some teaching work.

 

I know some go go bars have reopened in Cowboy, not sure how much trade they are getting, looked 50% open in a few videos. I would check myself but I'm 9600km away lol.
