Are Nana and Cowboy still dead?


Recommended Posts

Was in Soi 4 between 4 - 6 pm today, horribly quiet, eerily so. But the miserable, grey and cloudy weather didn't help.

She was asking for you.  

A weird experience, I'll say - you took your girlfriend to Nana?

Why is tourists walking by US embassy illegal?

Sorry, I forgot to turn on the sarcasm light.  Almost ironic that they would do that to people taking a stroll by the Embassy, and shows a deeply flawed chain of command.  Almost no reports of similar trouble if you stay west of Asoke, or only cross to go to Cowboy.  The number of Africans have thinned, but have also become more aggressive is a problem there, though.

If you're into that sort of thing, the famous Why Not bar that had been previously closer to Phrom Phong, relocated toward the end of Soi 4 last month. I reckon they got a killer deal on the new spot in a Covid fire sale. Sounds like they had a successful grand reopening party. So I've heard.

We took a stroll from the humble abode over to Nana last night to hit the Hilary 1 bar and listen to some live music which starts at 8pm.  Soi Nana was completely dead except for the Stumble In Bar, and Fitzgeralds. Hilary 1 upon our arrival had 30 employees working and only 6 of us patrons in the bar by 11pm when we left it was up to 8 customers, pretty sad but it was a Thursday.  The walk back down Nana and Sukhumvit to wireless was a quantlet of lady boys and freelancers.  Even watched as a LB tried to negotiate with an older guy, who eventually handed her some type of denomination and walked away.  Getting seriously concerned for the local bars as well.

Having one in the Madrid in Patpong. Alone except for the two remaining staff. Not even the market outside. 

Have not been in the Madrid for over 15 years. Was fun back in the day.

My Father has a theory regarding expat bars being quiet at this time. In the olden days of partying in Bangkok most bars clientele would be a 50, 50 mix expat residents and tourists. Then the bar owners made their decision to chase only the tourist dollar via their pricing regime.

I walked up soi 4 at 1500 on a Saturday which used to be a very busy, time and saw a total of 3 customers in the left side bars and 1 on the right side. The exception was the non English named bar, which has never been known as a tourist haunt, that had around 10 to 15 customers.

I then went to my local Thai ran bar on On Nut who's special is all the local beer you can drink in 2 hours for 399 baht. It was absolutely heaving with 50 % Thais and 50% westerners.

Hmm a non English named bar which has never been known as a tourist haunt. Offhand I can only think of the German one, which was closed Thurs afternoon. 

 

Something else to keep me awake...
