Why everything is closing early and Bangkok nightlife may never be the same

BANGKOK — If finding a late-night roost in the capital’s usual haunts has become more difficult, that’s because most clubs and bars in the Khaosan Road and Thonglor areas were ordered this month to close at midnight – a situation that may not change.

 

While the earlier closing of familiar venues may seem a sudden change, police said they have merely begun enforcing a law long on the books. Local police chiefs in both areas said they have done nothing but enforce a 2004 regulation requiring clubs and bars registered as restaurants in the two popular nightlife areas to close by midnight.

Maybe that's the reason and they need to get a different business designation. I was at Mixx till 3am tonight.

Good point.

My understanding is that  clubs & bars are subject to a different licensing and fee structure. Also the labour laws are different,  such as no underage workers  near the alcohol etc., and of course the random urine tests for drugs.

Nothing is curved in stone, the day that all those pious morality police ' do as I say but not as I do' people will realize that tourism is hurting and numbers are falling, they will reverse those opening hours quick smart...nothing like the Thais to go back on their words and 'laws'.....

One would wonder why a brain cannot extrapolate that before it happens. . . . . 

The duuh factor seems excessive. Why kill the goose? Oh let me see. If I kill the goose it will not 

lay eggs like it used to. I wonder is this is a good idea. Will we be able to revive the goose later?

 

Lets ask a monk. Pay a monk? Pay somebody else? It was an old law, lets revive it and see if it works.

Hahahahahahahah OMG
