An article appeared in a Thai newspaper today, which did indicate there is not a rose scent and moonshine in the evening life of our city.
Several bars in and around Soi 6 have opened as restaurants, some with only bowls of nuts on the menu. The bars and pubs may reopen as ‘restaurants’, but that doesn’t mean everything is back to normal.
About half of the brothels in Soi 6, for example, have resumed serving tourists, with perhaps some soggy peanuts being offered as food, but half of the locations have been and will remain closed.
Likewise, several Walking Street go-go bars have reinvented themselves as lounges or snack bars with sexy waitresses, but still, no pole-climbing ladies, maybe behind the “Rhododendrons” but no one knows that
The city’s nightlife has the facade of openness, but it’s just an empty shell
