    Question Tiger Complex

    The new Tiger complex in Patong was just a shell when I was there in March. I was wondering how it is progressing, and whether there has been a target set for an opening date?

    See my Kamala Kapers thread. Looking good last week, lighting going in, bar tops being installed.... not far off opening.

    Cheers, Rob.

    I was thinking about checking that place out but people seem to think it will be quite expensive. Might have to stop in for a bit anyway!

    Presume it will be 200 baht lady drinks like in Soi Tiger. Hottest girls are in Soi Tiger but can be an expensive night down there!

    I suppose someone will have to pay for all the fancy animal decorations. I wonder if it is the beginning of the end for the older style beer bars.

    Kangaroo Bar must be a gold mine! Wish I owned that place. Always packed, all year round, most of the day too!

    Some nice, friendly girls working there and you do not get hastled too much for lady drinks unlike in the P One bar next door where they are vultures! Spent just over 3000 baht in 25 mins there last trip. Must have bought everyone a drink including the DJ! Teach me for getting mao! I had to make it clear when I returned that it was a one off! 555

    What's that to the left of it?
    Constant change along Bangla - the Patong Beach Club with the pool didn't last long.

    new Tiger has about 150 bars in it I'd say.....so far about 120 or so have been taken up...only the very back bars are left....It is very busy down at the front but as you go towards the back business thins out

    A bar right at the front would turn over lots of money but I have heard the rents are huge.....beers are 120 baht at some bars and Lady drinks 200 in most...the nightclub on the top level is yet to open

    as for the old Tiger across bangla...its business as usual

    Because of the current world financial situation, I would be scared stiff, if I had a new, or any bar in Thailand.

    We have only seen the tip of the iceberg. Just as happened to soviet USSR The whole of the western world is going to melt down, some less than other's but it is coming. Forget about any pension's and forget most of your superanuation.

    Learn to live like the Thai's do, but in you own country. No holiday.

    I think, maybe 5-7yrs, just a feeling, but it could be right.

    Heard on the grapevine that the below Tiger complex is closing down and will make way for .... a shopping complex. Queried a few bar owners at the other one and he confirmed he had heard the same.



    Tbh I hardly ever drank here on my last trip other then bar funk. Speaking of which bar funk are opening up a new location on Bangla. Life after tiger I guess.

    I also heard New Tiger is in the firing line but not been able to verify. Allegedly the bottom half of Bangla (from Sansabai) will be all shops and all the nightlife at the other end.

    Not arsed about this one but hope the New Tiger place stays open. It was quite busy when I went last and I had a great time there almost every night.
