BMA Give Green Light For Booze From Today

After what feels like an eternity, the Bangkok Metropolitan Authority has just announced that bars and entertainment venues can reopen and booze is back on the menu at restaurants effective immediately.

The news comes after the BMA Communicable Disease Committee met this afternoon to discuss the relaxing measures that came into effect yesterday from the CCSA that saw Bangkok downgraded to the Orange Controlled Area category.

The news means restaurants can now sell alcohol to customers, nightlife can resume and bars reopen – all with a closing time of 11pm.
