The most important thing to be opened in order to restore the local economy are 'Legs'.

 

Everything else will benefit due to the trickle down effect.

Snail trails down Bangla road, that's a distant memory.

With the order to remain closed, the Phuket Sandbox scheme has brought no relief to bar staff and other workers, and venue operators in Phuket have not received any assistance from the national government, Weerawit Kreuasombat, President of the Patong Entertainment Business Association (PEBA) told The Phuket News.

Appears it was well organized.

Is it cost effective to upgrade from a bar license to a restaurant license? 

If you don't your doomed.  Be nice to know the costs.

 

Pay for a nice new kitchen and then the landlords raise your rent.

Not cheap setting up a kitchen, with all the bits and pieces you need

Wrong choice as the government can still close and fine them. However totally understandable if you don't support your populace but keep it close you are doing it wrong and are part the problem.

 

In my country we kept things closed but people got compensation to stay afloat in most of the cases. You can't close something down and not give grants / loans and so on. Then people will starve in the end.

do they need to install a new kitchen

friends bar in Bangkok reopened to sell food, but just orders it with delivery from a place across the street

Not sure how they make any money, customers are rare, but they are so desperate to get income, while having to pay high rents

Im not sure how they are doing it, but a few places where I live did install kitchens
