I spoke to the owners earlier this year, whilst they were still doing the internal fit out. Then, the place was to open in 2 weeks time.

The "opening soon" sign has been up for at least 3 weeks that I know of. I am going past there today, so may call in for an update.

The internal / external renovations look really good.

Whether opening soon or not, please tell us where it is. Isan is big !

Thank you Iambabababor. After reading Thai Chi's reply to the OP I thought there was something wrong with me/my computer. So to the OP, just where is the location of the Irish Pub that you are talking about. :o

OK...Paddys Irish Bar (no joke, thats the name of it) is in Buriram. It is situated in a long row of shop houses alongside the new lake development. That is, between Thanon Nakhon and Thanon I-san streets. About 350 mtrs up from the day market.

I did call in there today, but the place was closed up. A peek through the window revealed work in progress (tools / wood / etc) around the bar area. So I doubt if the "opening soon" sign still applies. But TIT and you just never know.

I wish him good luck in this venture, as well as the other French - Thai bar come eatery further along the same road that Thaicoon mentioned.

I know now where it is, i looked at these places, all to lease so was not interested, trouble with lease propertys in Buriram, once you are doing ok, they start sticking the rent up, this is what has happened in the Bamboo with the guy, David, who started the place, also you are doing up a blank canvas for the thai-chinese owners, better off if you can, to buy freehold, wish them both good luck.

Wife and i have quite a big venture hopefully this year, just outside buriram.

This whole row of shop houses where for sale prior to and when under construction. A couple where earmarked for freinds of the developers. At the time of completion they where selling for approx. 1 mill baht. The few that are still for sale (resale) are 2+ million baht.

The Irish bar is renting at the momment, with an option to buy later. I have no idea what is going on with the French / Thai place as far as ownership etc etc.

I am slightly pissed off that at the time these places where available, my wife and I had just started building a house just outside the Buriram CBD.

Although I am happy to report, that my wife did pick up some $$$$$$ as she owns some of the land behind this developement (something to do with access)

I Looked at these and was told most were for lease, also looked by the night market most of those were lease and the two that were for sale at a stupid price were out of the way, you would only pass them if you were driving from the market, also looked at a place by speed, next to the old tropicana, that was for sale at a 25 million baht price tag, the property prices now in Buriram are crazy, it just shows it is an up and coming city, i once bought two townhouses on jira road 8 years ago, for 300,000 baht a peice, we sold them a year later for 700,000 we bought these off the bank, wish now i had sat on them.

Wife and i have now decided to custom build our venture to my design, as i think it will be a better option and give us more scope for development, i was thinking of doing this in Pattaya, but been a country boy, i like Buriram to much.

UPDATE

The Irish bar called Paddys Irish Pub looks nearing completion but is locked up, it is owned by a German Guy :D who has obviously put a fair few baht into it. However, rumour has it that it can't get a licence to sell beer as it is within X amount of meters of a Wat :o

Now a pub with no beer, that is a new concept!!! Maybe not enough tea money changed hands? Anyway, surely if it is German owned it should be Hermans bierkeller?

On a more positive note the Thai/French restaurant called Vinyl is on the verge of opening, it is 100 meters up from the Irish pub and is at 90/62-63 Anuwat Street, Buriram.

The French guy who owns it has obviously put a lot of cash and effort into it and it looks the part i.e. a professional restaurant, I am told that he was a chef back in Europe, so that bodes well.

The name comes from it's music collection and it has a lot of Hard Rock Cafe type memorabilia, so expect a musical ambiance. So get out those Gary Glitter platforms and the Bay City roller scarfs in anticipation, myself I will settle for erotic thoughts involving Vanessa Paradis :D

It will open around 22/25th this month all being well and is open 7.30-24.00

TBWG :D

There is also an Irish Pub due to open anytime now in Prakhonchai

The Shamrock, like the one in Buriram, is also owned by a German. It is situate close to the bus station, directly opposite a large plot used to sell flowers, plants and trees. Shouldn't be any problems re licences as the building was previously occupied and run as a karaoke.

I have heard this before, you cannot sell beer so many metres away from a temple, anyone know the precise distance in metres, i think martin at the ferrang connection had this problem, where i am opening there is a temple just up the road, wife has told me this rule is only within city limits. it does not apply outsibe the city boundary, i am going to get my brother in law also to enquire.

TBWG.

I know the french guy, lives in the next village, you can see his place from mine over the paddy fields. he is only a young guy in his late 20s. good luck to him.

Whilst it is not permissible to sell alcohol within a designated distance of a Wat, why is it that when Wats have one of their regular fund raisers (surely they have more than enough already!); which often include boxing, likkae and scantily clad dancing girls, local entrepreneurs are permitted to set up stalls within the Wat grounds selling beer and whisky?

One law for one and another for everyone else!
