Japanese restaurant fined Bt50,000 for promoting alcohol

Recommended Posts

I have only seen Japanese restaurants get this fine.  Why did they arrest the chef 🤔
This should encourage more foreigners to open restaurants in Chiang Mai

Driving is more of a pleasure in Thailand than Australia ????   Are you taking the <deleted> ?

Love driving here compared to Aus, relaxed drink driving enforcement and very relaxed speeding enforcement, yes I do average 8 to 10 speeding tickets a month but they are chump change compared to the same in Aus (180km/h in a 120 zone is only bt.500.00 !!).

Then there is the give no farks attitude one can drive with if feeling like a spirited run, nothing bring a bigger smile to my face than carving the evening traffic on the 7 motorway coming home from work, then there's some roll racing on Friday and Saturday nights in high performance cars...

This week we had two bars in Bintabaht Hua Hin fined the same, 50k for promoting happy hour. Also some other bars warned about selling alcohol between 2 and 5.

We introduced a happy hour to try to bring in custom. Now we have wiped all boards, and removed every beer mat, beer cloth, and coasters, along with all the glasses that have transfers on them ( cider, leo, etc ). We even removed the price list, and now have it behind the bar if a customer asks.

Yes, we all know this law has been around for a long time, but haven't bar and restaurants suffered enough?

As has been mentioned, it is simply a way of the police trying to recoup the losses of 4 months shutdown.

Thailand simply is not the carefree, happy, relaxed place it used to be.

You did everything you can do. Why are the Beer Companies allowed to advertise and hold beer gardens and fun fairs and concerts? Don't think they make money on 11 Baht bottles of soda water.

This all must be banned and alcohol should only be sold in unmarked cans and bottles with plain 

lettering, same for the taps otherwise this is all hypocrisy and a fine excuse for Police to fleece Restaurants.

No beer for plebs, usurpers have their own private watering holes. Let the hoi polloi drink from muddy puddles.

Why is it "so funny"?  Is it advertising Leo alcoholic drinks?

Well,  Leo is a wellrecognized brand of beer in Thailand.  They are not clearly advertising beer,  but I think that is what people would think and that's the loophole in the law.  so that's what is funny,  how one restaurant gets fined because they "promote" beer,  but these big companies openly and freely promote their brand without penalty.

He broke "the law"? I don't think there will ever be enough different adjectives to describe the level of stupidity for this comment.

Your support law breakers ?

There's a difference between a restaurant illegally promoting an alcoholic drink, beer, and a brewery legally advertising it's bottled water.  It's not a loophole in the law.
