The fact that you have to explain what the thread is about every 2nd post means you've really got the title wrong...get rid of "death watch"

I am so sorry the title of this topic offends you. I will try to do better next time.

 

Meanwhile, another bar is for sale.

Not necessarily! There are many reasons to close and sell and not just because of failure!

Owner may have family problems and needs to move on.

Police may have banned the owner.

Owner may have died.

Owner may have moved to another bar etc!

 

That's why i said "usually" we know how profitable those bars are 555

How much rent do they have to pay now?

I am not familiar with the situation in Pattaya, but I know some rents from Bangkok from before Covid.

With that level it's impossible to make any money.

So how are the rents now? Same as years ago? Half?

Obviously owners will try to get a high rent. But if one day they notice that nobody can afford to pay that anymore then the rents have to go down - or no rent income at all.

I couldn't get a seat in a few last night in Soi Bukhao/ LK , some were packed with people 

 

Kilkenny had to share a table which I don't like had no choice and that was in the afternoon not night !!!

Had to sit with 2 swearing drunk morons 

Standing room only outside

What's this bar like at night must be packed in like sardines?

 

Hungry hippo no seats that was 6pm

Some of them are very busy

Well I have a different opinion. In LK area today I saw quite a few bars under renovation. That indicates optimism for the future and high/peak seasons. Pulse, Pandoras and Champagne Club, plus a repurposed place I hope to see open soon, Fever A-Go-Go. This is on top of relatively new LK Angels and Las Vegas.

Usually bars for sale means they haven't been a success, owner burning cash, of course every bar owner says they made money

But the owner needs to return to home country for health or family reasons ????

I am not suggesting that all bars in Pattaya are doomed. The purpose of this topic is to list bars that have closed, or are for sale.

 

If you want to talk about busy bars, please start your own topic.

You seem overly sensitive..... I said absolutely zilch about busy bars.

You really gotta be a moron or a top-notch entrepreneur to open a bar in this city.

Navigating the industry must have been difficult enough in the past but since covid and inflation, it must be ridiculously hard to make a decent return on your investment.

 

I don't drink very often but I got myself a beer yesterday in a bar along beach road.

85thb for a small Leo.... lol

I don't even wanna know how much a drink is in beer bars or gogos these days.

Probably as expensive as in the Europe.

Plus ladies harassing you for special f-you drinks... :))

 

There's a guy on Youtube. Can't remember his name but is channel is called Everything Pattaya.

The bleak take he has on the industry and where it's headed probably has some truth to it.

Many entertainment venues have become too greedy for their own good.

 

I remember 10 years ago, going at Nana Plaza with friends and getting fck up for something like 1000 thb.

Nowadays it wouldn't be possible. Well... To be fair I haven't tried but I wouldn't be surprised if I had to spend 2000-3000 thb for the same kind of fun these days.

 

The times, they are a-changin' !

It’s almost always people who have been manipulated by the current owner and/or an agent. Some guys are very charismatic and confident and they play potential buyers catering to their weaknesses.

 

Just seeing a for sale sign and deciding on your own is rare, but if you ever do that you know you have made a good decision.

If they don't sell and stay boarded up for months on end you have a point. But, where there are sellers there will always be buyers for these types of places, so just keep your eye out for a new owner and a new name for the premises.

 

OP is bored again.

Needs to get out and take more photos.????????

Jacko you are spot on the money.

There is always a new or renovated premises on the go.

It is the nature of the beast to "run" a pub.

Not sure if it is optimism or simply ego, but good luck to them all.????????
