    Yeah, closer to 2 years, though they have put in the White Room which opened last april/may...purely aimed at the teen to early 20's crowd

    Raids on underage drinkers (under 20 y.o.) can and do lead to bar/nightclub closures.
    Have you not seen the police/army raids doing ID checks and urine sampling?
    It even happens here in the quiet backwater of Kamala.

    Actually have never in my 5 years of trips seen any raids...didn't realise there was a drinking age limit for u'20s.
    That would stuff up a **** load of Aussie holidays if it was actually enforced.

    White Room has been in Patong for 4 or 5 years but was knocked down and reopened in much a bigger venue last year around Songkran

    It used to be a fun place...the old one...lots of Scandi chicks and pretty decent music...but yeah a reasonably young and very drunk crowd gets in there now..I'm 60yo this year but no one has ever blinked when I have walked in

    yeah...when they re-opened their target clientele was the youngies, but I would dare say the quest for the almighty Baht, and lower than expected customers would
    have tempered their resistance to us older people a bit....though doof doof music aint my scene

    I drank in a bar on Soi Gonzo, that was about half way from the White Room to the entrance. The state of some of the people leaving The White Room was unbelievable at times. Also fun to watch the bouncers dragging people out to the street after fighting or just plain drunk. Some nights was a regular procession.
    How some of those bouncers kept their tempers after putting up with the sh1t they were being given at times was very commendable.

    ...But then there was that time back in October last year when five bouncers kicked the daylights out of two Australian tourists outside the White Room....

    The state of the people coming out of there and some of the abuse (personal & racial) that was being handed out by the people being thown out, I would not blame the bouncers for belting living daylights out of the mouthy twats. They should just have been a bit smarter and done it where the cameras could not see them.

    Yes I know that, and that is why all that sort of promotion is now not available anymore and more in Perth.
    My local pub in Perth used to have a chase the ace draw on a friday night, where if your number came out, you had to throw darts at a board and see if the one you hit had the prize behind it. They used to add a carton of beer every week it was not won. The last one I can remember went off and the guy won about 50 cartoons of beer. The place was always packed when it was on. Licencing police got to hear about it and told the pub it would have to stop as it was not promoting reponsible drinking. That is why they have barely any happy hours here.
    So now it is back to a cash draw again.

    Much the same as what I saw.
    The lady running the bar I was in, said that there was trouble all the time, and if she saw any of the people leaving the White Room heading for her bar, she used to say we are closing now. She said it was not worth the trouble, plus upsetting people already at the bar to even serve them. She would rather not have their business to save her all the trouble that they would have caused.
