Unfortunately I can verify that is correct. My information is he does not plan to reopen.
I think we all knew Sunee Plaza was in trouble long before anyone ever heard of Covid-19. No matter how many go-go bars, beer bars, or anything else involving gay life in Pattaya, none will survive without customer numbers and customer support.
We have no way to be certain as to what will happen. Even when the bars are finally allowed to reopen, we don't know yet what kinds of rules and regulations they will have to abide by - everything ranging from social distancing to the attire the boys are allowed to wear. I'm not even sure Nice Boys and Winner Bar will reopen. I think they both will, but nothing is certain yet.
We're all on wait and see mode. There is nothing any of us can do until we know what the bars will do.
Perhaps this is a good time to remind that my policy on this board is bar owners, any gay venue owners, and any gay-friendly venue owners can advertise on this board as often as they wish, totally free of charge or any obligation to me. Few have ever taken me up on it. Maybe once the bars do reopen, some of the owners might wish to take advantage of that offer.
