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

Recommended Posts

Nothing changes but everything changes in Thailand.   I can recall when bars had to close at 2am.   At which time it was "check bin" for all and then carry-on having start a new bin for the new day.

For me, the only reason to go out to a club is to take a non-working woman home. I prefer to get her in my bed before dawn anyway.

Your chances of that happening will be slim to none if all clubs end up closing at midnight. That's usually the time to start heading out to the clubs.

Same thing had happened in CM over the recent years

Five years ago , places used to stay open until the last person left , even 9 AM

rules then came in , making everywhere close at 3 AM

This then changed to midnight .

The Police driving around slowly with flashing lights at midnight reminding everyone to close

A few establishments  flouted the law

Shutters down, Police come and go, shutters back up again

A few places go raided, closed down permanently 

The late night drinking places became harder and harder to find

Even those, you would be sitting with the lights dimmed , music off and whispering

Those places then stopped opening late

There were always the 24 hour beer shops , that you could get a beer from

Those then got clamped down as well .

Beer shops now close at midnight as well

There are a few back street shops that stay open later

But, why bother ?

Its a great time to quit drinking

I think they are taking the "free" out of what was such a free society.

 

Lots of tourists don't arrive until late at night. Getting here from a long flight and bars closing at midnight they might not come again.

 

There is beginning to be too much control here which was the reason lots came here to retire and live.

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

Yeah! some people like to get a bite to eat after the bar like a pizza or something so you get something to absorb the alcohol.

lol it's practically been impossible for me to get mugged on the way home. Bro, I'd say BKK is one of the safest cities to walk around in the middle of the night.

 

Oh wait, did you mean "get mugged on the way home" as in the police trying to get some cash out of peeps walking along Sukhumvit or from one of those police road blocks?

I agree with you on how safe Bkk is at night.

I walked 1.5 klms home at 2 am after work for sometime and felt totally safe. Something I would never do in my Australian home city.

Seriously? I've only been here since the mid eighties and it's changed a lot! Maybe not from the clean and tidy perspective, but in every other way.

Here come the TV old fuddies this site is famous for ????

this side is also famous for older people who have the means to stay here and raise

a family, for people who dont have to show off or have to impress young ladies.

Normal people who like to sleep on normal hours.

So not only for tourists,acting as successful  , witch have to save up a year to spend it here in a few weeks and go home 

poor as they were .

Lets see how many likes this gets?
