For several months the Soi 7 beer bar complex has been closed due to the landlord not adhering to the original plans submitted to the building department that included a car park on the site.
The situation caught the eye of authorities following a police raid earlier this year that found one bar owner employing underage girls.
Since April bar owners have been left in limbo not knowing what planning officials would decide with fears the entire complex could be bulldozed.
Following a meeting with management and bar owners yesterday, the outcome is the front bars need to move their shutters inward by 1.5m from the footpath but can still use the space when open.
Inside will see a major restructuring with all the bars left and center being demolished so when you stand at the corner of Moonshine inside the walkway a new rectangular block of bars will stand in line over to the right with nothing in the space to the left except the toilets and two units beside them on the same wall.
The front bars are earmarked to open first with those inside at the hands of the builders.
News on an opening date is expected soon.
