Last Orders Called At The Duke

Published

on

The French owned bistro / tapas / shisha bar / pre-club hangout / restaurant / wine bar The Duke on Thonglor Soi 10 has called last orders, turned off the lights and padlocked the doors for the final time after only doing business in the Opus Building for four months.

The four partners started out with a shared vision of what they wanted but that soon fell by the wayside even BEFORE the bar opened as far as I’ve been told and the divide only grew deeper as the weeks went past.

Several offers to buy came and went without much foundation and eventually the managing partner was funding the loss making venture out of his own pocket before deciding enough was enough as the other three had decided they were out.

Another Bangkok bar dream bites the dust, just like so many before.

The Penalty Spot Will Be Back

The Penalty Spot

I shared a photo earlier today on social media of The Penalty Spot on Sukhumvit Road asking was the bar another COVID casualty as it had a sign posted with a name and number giving the impression the shophouse it stands in was available for rent.

Just to clear up any confusion as to whether The Penalty Spot will reopen or not I can confirm the bar will be back as soon as the government gives the green light.

It’s just a simple case of no booze, no point.

I totally get that, so now that’s been cleared up I’m off to have a cold one.

Hooters Silom No More?

hooters silom closed down

It appears that the Silom branch of Hooters is no more unless the owners are throwing good money away giving the place a revamp.

A photo shared with me by Twitter user @CiaranMcGivern shows workmen taking down the Hooters signage while others inside take out all the fixtures and fittings.

The Silom branch was Hooters sixth outlet to open in Thailand and third branch in Bangkok when it debuted back in May 2018.

From my many trips to Silom in those 2 years, I recall it being busy once when they were holding a party and every other time there were just a handful of customers.

With the monthly rent running at 1.2 million baht it was never going to be easy making it work, even with a big brand name.
