Promenada - The Beginning of The End?

Recommended Posts

Noticeable that the free World Music event that was truly great last year with terrific bands from South Africa, USA and Malaysia disappeared without trace this year ( last year it took place in March I think). Presumably another cost cutting exercise of a failing venue?

That was a fantastic concert with absolutely great artists performing and I too have been looking out for the next one.

I, like some of the others, don't believe it is a failing venue. Struggling, yes. But "failing" no. There is too much invested in it for it to completely fail.

So during this my latest visit to Chiang Mai I went out to see the state of things again today.

I was shocked to see that the entire food court on the first floor “eat@prom” has closed down. One thing I did notice about this area when I used it in January was the excessive noise of the air conditioning and even then it was a challenge to keep that area cool because of the heat load from the windows. It must’ve been costing them a packet to run that air-conditioning system with very few customers.

In the same building on the ground floor where Uniqlo used to be there are blue signs saying superstore famous brands are coming soon! But when you look through the gates the Uniqlo fixtures and fittings are still there abandoned.

And coming soon doesn't seem to mean much when you look at the sign for Baja Joes Mexican restaurant which has been coming soon since the beginning.

Since January the former Citrus pharmacy on the first floor near the banks is still in the same state as it was also looking abandoned with some of the fixtures and fittings still left there.

Can't swear to it but the fixtures may still be there as they hadn't paid the rent. My understanding was it was a night move when they pulled out and the guards stopped them. They had not been informed.

The original Promenada plans had a bowling alley. I would be going there twice a week.

I keep going for a look but nope..... never materialized.

Bully bowl is just crap I've been there.

My vote is for a Hooters branch.

They're in Thailand now, just not yet in Chiang Mai.

My apologies for going off-topic, but please provide more information on this critically important subject. Where are these Thailand Hooters?

Now that is disappointing news...

You may not recognize Hooters in Thailand...... because they may be billed as Katooters....

I do think that Promenade will swing around..... think its just a little ahead of its time for the location.

Never heard about any bowling alley. And I have been involved with prom since early 2013. They did plan an ice skating rink but thats not happening anymore.

There is a gym "coming soon"....but until they actually start construction you cant be sure.

Uniqlo have come to an agreement with prom which will allow them to move the rest of their stock out.

I found the Hooters in Phuket info. I also found out they charge 500 baht + 17% tax and service charge for a hamburger and 300 baht drinks. http://www.thaivisa.com/forum/topic/705589-hooters-coming-to-phuket/page-3?hl=%2Bhooters#entry8038812

I expected farang prices, but that's ridiculous.

Side note The Hooters in Phuket is the first and doing a fantastic business. The owner has two more that they are opening, one in Pattaya and another in Bangkok. No plans of anything for Chiang Mai.
