The Londoner Taking A Temporary Time Out

Published

on

The Londoner

With the BMA restrictions curbing closing times to 9pm and banning the sale of alcohol, times are tough out there and while many operators have chosen to close, others have attempted to keep at it and battle on.

Easier said than done which is why as the days and weeks pass more and more venues have pulled the pin and decided to shut up shop until the government restrictions are lifted.

This week, management at The Londoner has taken the decision to press the pause button too with the popular expat hangout taking a temporary time out from Tuesday 19th.

The current BMA order expires at 6am on Feb 1 but at this time it’s unknown what will happen then, or even before.

Will the order be extended? Relaxed? Lifted? We’ll need to wait and see.

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.

Good times.

We have made the difficult decision to temporarily close Above Eleven until further notice.

Chequers Taking A Time Out

chequers closed

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.
