Re: Soi Twilight to be Demolished in June/July for Redevelopment?

Lots of speculation but it's all going to come down to wait and see what happens. Word I got is the developer is going to compensate each business depending on the lease terms and pay for relocation. The amounts are not going to be published. Some are looking now at new locations. Nothing has been f...

Re: Tinnies - Pattaya

If you're British or Australian you likely love it. If you're American you might like it, I do. If you're Continental you might not like it. In other words it's very British but having spent quite a lot of time in the UK I've acquired the taste for British pies but they are not exactly the same as I...

Re: Soi Twilight to be Demolished in June/July for Redevelopment?

I was told by some of the business owners on Soi Twilight and the adjacent business that face Rama 4 that they have been informed that all leases are going to expire on 1 May 2018 and there will be no renewals. So, the speculation is redevelopment. The adjacent block on Rama 4 behind Classic Boys ha...

Re: Has Anyone Seen "Call Me by Your Name"?

This evening my BF and I went to see 'Call Me By Your Name' at the House RCA theater in Bangkok. It has been running since 14 December, five showings per day. We arrived in time for the show at 1630 but it was sold out. We got seats for the 1930 showing and that was sold out by 1900. Generally indie...

Re: Babylon New Zone Underground

I think I may be right in saying Chakran had the first naked zone in Thai saunas. ..... It's also years since I was at Heaven near the river end of Silom. That used to be quite cruisy with quite a number of young Thais from the hotels near that area. Has anyone been recently? Yes, I think you're co...

Re: Has Anyone Seen "Call Me by Your Name"?

It will be playing in Bangkok from Dec 14 at House RCA. https://www.facebook.com/houseRCA/ Google map link: http://www.houserama.com/ I don't see announced show times yet but plan accordingly and avoid rush hours. It's not the easiest location to get to. There's several nice cafe type restaurants in...

Re: Babylon New Zone Underground

Perhaps you were too early the no towel zone opens at 7pm. Different sections are opened at different time and there's signs at the entry points to each area. You have to explore. The design was intentional. This works out good for me as most of the farangs especially the older ones seem to leave be...

Re: Babylon New Zone Underground

Last night 25 November 2017 Babylon had its 29th anniversary party. That puts the opening date at Nov 25, 1988. So, I guess back somewhere just after that date I was on Holiday in Thailand (my second trip) and was having a drink at the Telephone Bar, Silom soi 4, and someone was passing out flyers a...
