Always like 'Chilled Bar' but no food as you say, Pies are ok in 'My Bar' but a complete 'farang bar' in Khon Kaen - would there be enough users - I personally not think so but................................................... please prove me wrong clap2.gif

Well the best run bar, which has falang food a live band and reasonable drink prices is no1 bar, which is currently on the market.

As for a gap in the market, know matter what concept you come up with there is not the customer base to be successful just my honest opinion.

Isn't No1 Bar owned by same as people as Blues Bar ??

Agreed, would not be just a bar, would have to have a marketable theme that could appeal to locals, a fine balance, maybe an Irish bar!!! :-) An American diner with bar attached. Would definately have to serve a Sunday roast.

Well I have just spent 6 weeks in Khon Kaen and I agree with previous posters you have to consider if there is the demand. Go around the Pullman and Blues Bar and see how many farang there are about in the week especially. No1 bar is a bit far out not near anywhere now NateNitePlaza gone.

If you want a good breakfast go to Rockys bar, Peter and Pam are a nice couple and the breakfasts are good but for dinner could try Italian pomodoro 3 doors away and then try and find a lively bar after. Went to The Club at CharoenThani hotel and two people in but this is a bit of a con as if you want company for the night you have to buy a room at the hotel 3,200B in total.

There is going to be an irish bar in a hotel which is being built out of an old 97/98 derelict shell along the road from the bus station. Scandinavain bar for sale near Kosa.

Don't remember chilled bar may have forgotten name if I went.

Think you have to find a market before you can find a gap in it. Not sure there is a market there.

Before I went I thought it may be a bit like Udon Thani, how wrong could I have been.

Good luck looking for the gap. Seven's corner os closed as well which was a long running bar.

I do think a well presented bar which has some decent money spent would at least cover its costs, got sell my house on Samui first, which is definately the hard bit at the moment !

Unless somebody wants to do a house swap? Koh Samui for Khon Kaen.

Scandanavian bar next to Eric's bar has closed down, No1 bar is currently being renovated, and in the the new Centara hotel there is a new English style pub opening called London inn which sounds promising.

There is a lot of new thai style bars opening that are well run and presented, wine bar themed.

Large TIGER at No. 1 Bar was 90 THB. Kind of a run down place. 4 Large LEOs for 200 THB near the city centre.......born on 6-26-2012. Most foreign bars fail miserably. The cards are clearly stacked against them. I come to Thailand to support Thai businesses and eat thai food. Western food cost about 4 times what I can make it for in the States. Not a big fan of hot dogs and eggs for breakfast, either. If there are no thai customers and no prices out fron...run don't walk, it's probably a big rip-off.

Yes it is on the road at the side of the Pullman called Pomodoro and the food is still good.

Thanks for the location. Yes there were two bars between Rockys and Leo Bar but I have to say Enjoy bar was rather dull and so was the other which is maybe Chilled Bar. At nights in the week just dead and not much enthusiasm from the staff either.
