“Restaurant” near Bali Hai Pier in Pattaya inspected for fifth time for alleged violation of Covid19 rules


Must read

Pattaya police have inspected a “restaurant” near Bali Hai on suspicion of selling alcohol and operating without a permit, marking the fifth time the location has been “robbery” in recent months.

A Pattaya police patrol inspected the ‘Sky Mountain’ restaurant and bar where many Thai and foreign patrons were reported to be drinking alcohol while enjoying live music, and some of the diners were not wearing masks or maintaining social distancing.

In recent months of Covid-19 restrictions, this particular restaurant has been robbed four times before, Pattaya police noted. The last time the restaurant was ordered for temporary closure until the end of November, it has since been allowed to reopen.

The restaurant manager is accused of illegally operating the venue and illegally selling alcohol as the venue, according to police, did not meet all legal qualifications to currently sell alcohol, such as SHA+ (Safety and Health Administration Certification), a Covid -free setting, Thai Stop Covid Plus certification, good social distancing and other requirements.

No guests were fined or arrested and the situation remained calm as customers attempted to escape possible fines or arrests in previous raids on this location and flee through the sea or into the nearby forest.

Local media notes that this visit was also prompted in part by a viral video in which a Thai man was reportedly assaulted nearby after a nightly brawl over the weekend, although it was unclear whether the brawl took place directly at the location.

Pattaya Police, meanwhile, said they will reassess the restaurant’s legal status and discuss the ongoing issues with relevant city and provincial officials.
