Had a look around the 2 new bar clusters towards the south end of Soi Buakhao last night, Action Street and the indoor bar area next door whose name escapes me.
Action Street is a bit like Doctor Who's Tardis. From Buakhao there doesn't look to be too many bars but when you walk inside you find many more bars set back and more yet to be built according to one mamasan. It's desperately quiet but said mamsan claimed they were waiting for custom to move over from Soi 7 and Soi 8 when bars start closing there. She claimed she had to find Bt50k a month to cover salaries and rent so hopefully it's not too long before they start getting custom. Action Street could be a pretty good bar area but it badly needs people.
Nameless, the indoor bar area next to Action Street was a surprise and again could be great fun with more customers and staff.
The photo shows the ground and first floor bar areas and apparently there is a basement level too. So three floors of ........
If all the bars were up and running you could probably spend a full evening in here just bouncing from bar to bar. This place has great potential but it needs all the bars staffed and open.
Have to say I hope both areas succeed as they offer something a little different..... what, like beer and girls I hear you say?
Final point. A Heineken in both bar areas was Bt70 so they aren't using cheap beer to attract punters.
