It figures, although my memory is hazy, 94 / 95 /96 are the years I'm thinking of.

Pre '96 was VERY hazy for me because I was a tourist then!

I would have to look at my CV to be accurate but I can't be arsed, I flew down from PRC for 2 years running during "Golden Week" when everything shut for 2 weeks. Flew into Don Muang then everything is just a blur of alcohol, women and music (Although I must have eaten something I have no memories of it!)

Do you remember Vic's Beer Bar, on Beach Rd, maybe about the area between Soi 3 and 4, or 4 and 5? It was a double shop house wide place, had seating at tables just outside so you could enjoy the breeze coming ashore and watch the old dudes walking the beach side holding hands with a girl that could be their granddaughter.

Was my intro to Pattaya about '94, '95. Miss many of those beach road beer bars, must have been about 100, including the many multiple clusters of them in one area, from the Soi 1-2 area, down to the WS entrance.

Great bar, great girls. Used to sit there in my first trip, tad later than You, Mister.

That will please many people, assuming it will be under the same management as before.....

 

Had a few incredible afternoon jam sessions in there a couple years ago. Some of my best memories from Pattaya. Would crawl back to my hotel on Soi 13, happy as a I can ever remember. 

I sure would like to one day have another go at it. Time will tell I reckon.

Blaming it on Covid is bollocks!

MIT was something , then it became bars and it will again be something in future. At least they admitted at the end that it was part of the normal business dynamics of Pattaya!

To put this in perspective, the same thing happened to soi 2/3 bar complexes years ago but nobody blamed it on SARS/Thaksin/Economic crash/whatever. Somebody bought the land and decided to do something different with it! Simples.

As an aside.I have a niggling memory in my head that says that the Scottish bloke was involved in the "On the couch" football chat show on Star sports from about 20 to 25 years ago. Anybody know??

Well Pattaya needs more Condos or Hotels like the Eskimos need more snow...

That whole complex had been looking more and more shabby for a very long time....But I liked the sleazy low rent feel the place had....

Hahaha totally agree but we aint the ones shelling out billions of Baht.

Talking of "sleazy low rent feel" , look what happened to soi 6 ... which will soon be going the way of MIT IMHO!!
