    Gonzo Gone ...

    'No sex shows' for Phuket's revamped Soi Gonzo

    Mr Tee recently closed the 83-metre-long soi, which leads off Bangla Rd, on August 4, and ripped out all the bars.

    He told The Phuket News, “Apart from pulling down the structures and clearing the soi, we have filled it with 60 centimetres of soil to solve a perennial problem of flooding.

    “We are now starting the rebuild, which will be complete in time for the next high season [in October].

    “There will be no sex shows. There will be just drinking, eating and chilling out with girls as companions. I know some people will think that is the same as sex business, but it is not. It’ll be dancing only.

    “Soi Gonzo has long been a legend in Patong, and it will be famous again. I have a plan to present European and Russian dance shows. It will be the most fabulous place on Bangla Rd again, very soon.

    “I also plan to make sure that all my [foreign] employees will be legal, with work permits, working correctly. There will be no sex shows,” he repeated.

    All that remains of the businesses on the soi is the Aussie Bar, the anchor business at the Bangla Rd end, which is part-way through a lease.

    Mr Tee, who has been a power in the Patong entertainment industry for 20 years, said that the owners of the White Room Lounge and Nightclub, at the other end of the soi from the Aussie Bar, have already signed a contract for the same place on the strip.



    A bar owner I was speaking to in April , had suggested the new rents were going up , I didn't realise they were demolishing the place first

    Yeah it's kinda freaky looking right now - you look down past Aussie bar and it's just like a small driveway into the complete emptiness behind it.

    It's a shame , another part of the old Bangla gone , happy memories from my first trip spent down that Soi and some of the original Bars that were there like Duck Tonight , all of them playing their own music and showing Van Damme videos on the TVs

    Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

    Cheers, Rob.
    Lifes journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well-preserved body, but to skid in sideways totally worn out, shouting: holy s.h.i.t what a ride!

    Agreed. happy memories indeed from a dozen or so years back ....it was a different kind of Soi because of that entry off Bangla.....

    . and the way you would look out over the bars ... a hundred girls rising to their feet as you walked in and down thru the entry ......

    . all those girls beckoning you to their bar and grabbing at you as you passed by .... walking the gauntlet was what the mate and I called it then ....

    RIP Gonzo, you live now only in our memories ...(sob)

    That was handy for cutting across to take a pi55 as you would have to wait for all the LB's to finish taking one in the mens (standing up in skirts and high heels) as the ladies at the back of Soi Croc was always chokas.
