    This Deal's Getting Worse All The Time

    Upon the heels of the Mother's Day closures, now the police are going to enforce the 2 am closure times starting tonight.

    Can it get anymore worse? 5555



    So far only Phuket will be affected.

    Does it apply to 'house' guests, Bill?

    Somsak will rest easier ... everyone tucked in with their BG's a bit earlier, breakfast maybe busier too 555
    Cheers, Rob.

    Not necessarily. Plenty of bars thrived and tourists had a great time before the late closings. Sure, some guys like to party ALL night....I'm sure there will be places that "somehow" remain open....like the old
    Safari.

    Just thinking of the rents the Bars pay these days , surely earlier closing will restrict their ability to make a profit

    the Bars normal closing has been around four ish apart from the odd crackdown since I've been coming , then Safari / Saloon Bar or another would take over until sunrise

    Now I heard that the rumor of the 2am closing, is just that: a rumor......heard it won't happen. Just have to wait and see.

    Honestly, Phuket based (English) newspapers must be the worst when it comes to reporting actual news, do they even fact check their sources, 5555

    Plenty of friends reported good times after the coup... said everything just started earlier and they actually saw the beach that trip.

    Confirmed by the BiB as rumor.
    Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

    Nobodies in the bars till 10 and they dont get busy ( if they ever do- you should have seen how quiet Gonzos been ) till 11 at least ... a lot of the prettier girls dont turn up till 11 or 12 ...
    If bars had to pay staff by the hour they'd be all for 2am closing.
    Many people seem to handle 1am closing in Bkk without complaint. Many a bar around the Suk is busy from dusk on....like Bangla once was.
    People just adjust when they know - like day light savings once it started.

    Anyway , we'll see...
