After only a few months since its grand opening, Underground Go Go Bar on the ground floor of Nana Plaza is on the market for 9.5 million baht.
The current owners, who also have London Calling as part of their stable, have decided to put the bar on the market as the working partner has gone overseas to tend to other business commitments.
The location of Underground was once home to Voodoo and following the takeover the bar underwent a major refurbishment that took three months. At least potential buyers don’t need to worry about any initial expenditure to give the place a major overhaul.
Now before you hit the ATM to withdraw the 9 million, there are some other facts and figures you should have a look at.
Rent: 660,000 baht
Salaries: 100,000 baht
Utilities: 31,000 baht
Security: 45,000 baht
Security Deposit To Landlord: 2 million baht (refundable)
Key Money: 3.5 million baht
Being a bar owner in Nana Plaza doesn’t come cheap, does it? If you are thinking about dipping your toe in the naughty nightlife industry, further details on the sale are available here.
Major Renovations Underway At Twister BKK
Twister BKK is one of, if not the biggest, go-go bar in Bangkok and it’s currently a shell of its former self with construction crews on the tools transforming it into something very different.
The inside of the massive bar, which must be at least 8 shophouses wide, is currently a shell with the owners stripping it bare to start the new build from scratch.
So what is on those drawings of the new design and layout?
A big boat. And I mean a very BIG boat that will run for almost the entire length of the bar as the stage. It will even have a higher built section for Titanic-like moments.
The outside area has also been stripped back to nothing but I don’t know if there will be any boat-like bar going up.
My question is what will it be called? Will the new management go for Love Boat A-GoGo?
I guess we’ll need to wait and see.
The Scene On Soi Cowboy Last Night
Yes, there’s no denying it is a sad sight to see the Neon Alley looking like this but it will be back soon and the good times can roll again.
With vaccine rollouts around the world picking up momentum and Thailand preparing for mass inoculations, there is light at the end of this Covid tunnel.
Nana Plaza Back In The Day
Lollipop Mermaidium shown in the photo above closed in August 2002 giving us a rough idea of when this snap was taken. as it was only around a few years.
Nana Plaza back in the day was a totally different place from what it is now.
Of course, old hands will always tell you it was much better before but just you ask anyone who has visited recently for the first time what they think and it’s likely they had themselves a ball.
