I think they’ll be back eventually.  There’s too much chrome pole talent out there to waste. 😉

.   Oh, he likes it alright, along with all his cronies.....   He just doesn't want us to have any of it.    

Go- go bars, massage parlor and other similar places of the flesh trade will, in time, rise back again like a phoenix from the Covid's ashes, these trades are just too lucrative to let them die, so be

Dunno where you get your information from, but IMO a gogo bar is specifically dancers on a stage with a pole to shuffle around.

IMO it's being able to take a girl home with a bar fee.

You are talking about all bars that happen to have available girls in them - but go-go bars are a specific sub-set.  Stage, chrome poles, lively music, disco lights, bikinis with numbered badges.  

 

The origin of the go-go bar was the Vietnam War era, US troops in Pattaya and Bangkok on R&R.

 

That type of bar is a sun-set industry.  Yes, bars with girls will be around forever, but I didn't think that was the subject of this thread?

I doubt the OP was wondering if solely bars with a stage and dancing girl was going to be gone..

Really? The clue was in the title.

The thermology for a go-go bar is a lot broader than a bar with dancing ladies..

One potential upside is lower bar fines, lower prices, and more talent available freelance. 

Couldn't fewer girly bars mean that there was a shorter supply and thus an increase in prices?  Especially if freelance was not as popular.

Why do you say that?  What's the problem with buying alcohol in Thailand, you can have as much as "he and his cronies" have, can't you?

far too many bars and gogo's in pattaya anyways. control their numbers and relocate them further away from city centre and beach area where "families and quality tourists" (?) can stay.

What area's can "families and quality tourists" (?) not stay.

but a bar where a falang can chat with a pretty girl for pri e of a drink are a feature of a bygone age.

I have no reason to think you are wrong, but I sure hope you are.

Bangkok's Soi 33 bars all died before COVID and Soi 22 was also fading.

There's still plenty of bars in 33 (and 22), they may be temporarily closed pending the re-opening but they sure did not "all die before Covid".

up to them where they can stay -  i personally don't think that a soi 6 type area would suit wholesome family types but not up to me.

The European and US expats are a reducing population due to their advanced age profile and the changing nature of foreign businesses - causing a move to ex-pats from China, Korea and Japan.

What does that mean?  Are you suggesting that Asian expats don't age or that there haven't been Asian expats here already for decades?   

 

The aging western expats don't age any quicker than the Asians and what makes you suggest that when the current western expats expire there'll be none of their countrymen to replace them as has happened for the last sixty or seventy years?

In the south of Phuket around Rawai the pussy bars were dying out before covid hit the place, the places that are busy are more like a Pub scene, sports bars with pool tables all the sports from around the world, I did see a video some guy made in Patong going down Bangla road some of the bars had a few people in there,

All the 'Artist' bars closed well before COVID.  Mojo's and the The Office too.

Since we're talking about the term, let's take a look at where the name comes from:

 

Fascinating, huh?

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Go-go_bar

Err... just one thing....

If the first named 'Whisky a gogo' bar opened 'n 1947, how did they get the name from a film that wasn't released until 1949?

You can call it all you want, but a place where you can take a girl home against a certain fee is a go-go bar

So the pool bars with bar-fineable girls are "go-go" bars?   No, they're definitely not.

That's not "all the bars in 33".  What you meant was, some bars in 33 closed before Covid.

Gogo bars bring a lot of money for lots of people. Some official and some not so official. How will the police officers survive without all that extra cash?

Just keep in mind that prostitution is illegal in Thailand.  That should be a good indicator about the future of the nightlife.

 

How many bars will survive and make money is a different question. And landlords (or mafia groups) who think they can charge tremendous amounts of rent will probably find out that that there are limits.

The Thai people deserve a better government.

All people in all countries deserve a better gov't.

As has been since man started to join together - someone gotta be the Boss.

Problem being - Power Corrupts. Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely.

the strip near the entrance where great places like Barfly were got built into a Novotel.

That's incorrect, Barfly and the Novotel Lotus were there at the same time as each other, the Novotel Lotus was not built where Barfly was.  Barfly morphed into the Kangaroo Sports Bar on the same premises and closed a couple of years ago, many years after the Novotel was built in 1994.

But prostitution doesn't go on in go-go bars. that happens off premises, doesn't it?
