83 pubs in the capital were temporarily shuttered on Saturday due to fire safety failings.
Following the fire at a Sattahip pub in the early hours of Friday morning that left 15 people dead, the Governor of Bangkok ordered inspections at entertainment venues across all 50 districts.
So far over 400 Bangkok venues have been inspected to ensure fire exits and escape routes are adequate and up to standard.
With tourists starting to return, the governor said it was important to step up safety measures.
