New bar openings and closings around town

WALKING STREET

Overmind has been closed, possibly for remodelling but more likely just struggling like all the upstairs gogos have done in the past.

There is a new live music venue soft open on Soi16/Walking street from the team that brought you Stones House. We like that place a lot so the new venue should be worth checking out.

Alcatraz has been closed for a while now. So has the Moon Club.

L’italiano, the Italian restaurant and pub, has closed.

LK METRO

Never been a huge fan of LK, Walking Street prices without the quality, maybe that is why Gold Club is for sale… according to their facebook page.

SOI BUAKHAO

New bar called Mookky bar with snooker has opened opposite Jolly’s.

OTHER

A “Playboy” branded cafe has opening at Central Marina/Big C on 2nd road near SabaiDee massage. It seems to have no relation to anything, just an overpriced cafe with a Playboy theme. The waitresses wear trousers and bow ties, not really sexy at all.  They serve food and don’t have any connection to Playboy except the name and rights to use the Bunny Rabbit logo.

WHATS HOT

Palace is the one to beat for a quality lineup. Lighthouse also strong, and Baccara always worth a visit. Sapphire Club too if you don’t mind coyote tops.
