The Londoner has announced they will be closed until April 21 following the news a patron tested positive for Covid-19 at the weekend after visiting the popular watering hole on Phatthanakan Road.
In updates posted on the pub’s Facebook page, it stated a customer who visited on April 4 had come down with symptoms on the 9th and tested positive two days later on April 11th.
Further updates informed customers that following a deep clean the pub would be allowed to reopen for business on April 21.
That is of course subject to any new orders from the government or BMA.
Soi 22 Blast from The Past
Here’s a walk down Sukhumvit Soi 22 memory lane for some who might remember Ray’s place Twenty Two Bar.
It relocated here from Sukhumvit Road and was a popular hangout for Scots in Bangkok.
I remember sinking a shandy or two here with my old mate TommyTrueBlue back in the day.
Above Eleven Closed Until Further Notice
With fewer and fewer people out and about plus more and more restrictions at national and provincial levels coming into effect, notices from businesses taking the decision to temporarily close just keep on coming thick and fast.
The latest place to take this tough decision is Above Eleven who published the following statement today.
Dear Above Eleven Guests,
We have made the difficult decision to temporarily close Above Eleven until further notice.
As the COVID-19 situation heightens, we believe this decision is in the best interest of our staff, guests, and the public at large. It truly saddens us that we’re unable to serve you at our venue and we cannot wait to invite you back to Above Eleven soon.
In the meantime, we hope you and your family stay safe! 💚
Above Eleven Team
Hopefully, Above Eleven and everyone else choosing to close at this stage will be back before we know it.
Chequers Taking A Time Out
Chequers, the popular British pub on Sukhumvit Soi 4, has announced today they will be closing temporarily.
The update on Facebook says due to the recent spike in Covid cases in Bangkok, and the subsequent restrictions imposed by the government, food sales alone is not enough to make it viable to open the doors.
As soon as there is an inkling of a return to some sort of normality, Chequers will open again.
