The Dutchman who transformed Spellbound into Bangkok Bunnies, making it one of the biggest and best go-go bars in Nana Plaza, is back in business after acquiring The Den on Sukhumvit Soi 12.
Just when the deal was done I don’t know but I can tell you the Dutchman is now out of his very short spell in retirement from the bar biz and in charge at The Den from today.
Much like his time at Bangkok Bunnies, he has big plans for the popular Sukhumvit watering hole. Just what those plans are is something for another day.
As for the Patpong branch, that has now been renamed Radio City and I believe it’s owned by a group that includes the owners of Bada Bing, the popular go-go bar just over on Patpong Soi 2. This is a venue in need of some TLC as on my last visit a couple of weeks back, it was only me and the bar staff in the place. Again, that’s another story for another day.
There was talk sometime back of a third branch of The Den opening down in Pattaya but I have no idea if that venture came to fruit so I can’t comment there.
Let’s hope the sharks are staying put and not being shown the door…
