Soi Cowboy Gets The Green Light To Open Until Midnight

Go-go bars on Soi Cowboy have been informed Monday night that they can open until midnight while down the road at Nana Plaza chrome pole palaces have been told to close under the latest BMA order shuttering “high risk” businesses and sporting venues.

It what has become an all too familiar scenario when it comes to enforcing orders, venues of the exact same type receive different directives due to their location and interpretation of orders by the local police district commander.

While Soi Cowboy gets the green light to open for business, only the Nana Plaza beer bars such as Stumble Inn, Big Dogs, Morning Night outside on Soi 4 plus ground floor venues with an outside terrace bar such as Twister BKK, Lollipop, Witchcraft and The Beer Garden inside the Plaza are permitted to open until midnight leaving all the go-go bars closed.

Note: It is highly likely this decision to allow go-go bars on Soi Cowboy will be overturned at some point on Tuesday.

Earlier on Monday the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration issued new measures in a bid to curb the spread of the latest outbreak of Covid-19 from the shrimp market in Samut Sakhon province.

Between Tuesday 29th December 2020 and Monday 4th January 2021 venues deemed “high risk” will be either closed completely or bound by a number of restrictions including closing times and live entertainment.

Updated Wednesday 30th 5.30pm: Go-go bars on Sou Cowboy will be closed until Jan 5. Beer bars sych as Oasis, Corner Bar and Country Road can operate until midnight.

Updated Saturday 2nd January 12.30pm: All bars are now closed.
