thats the key word, progress and investments in almost all sectors have squeezed out the old modus operandi of the previous occupier with limited resources, welcome to the asian century
It's not closed, but I just spend a month with a direct view from my balcony so I saw it each night. The upper deck was open perhaps 1-2 nights in that month and I just saw a few people there when it was even open, the bottom part seems to be open but I only saw a couple people too. It's absolutely a shadow of the big parties they used to have.
That's unfortunate. Thanks for the info. I really had some good times theresuperferret wrote: ↑Tue Mar 06, 2018 12:17 pmIt's not closed, but I just spend a month with a direct view from my balcony so I saw it each night.

yup thats itdron wrote: ↑Tue Mar 06, 2018 10:26 pmI spend between ten and two hundred a night. It depends on where I go, who I am with, and what I do. Pretty stupid answer I guess, but isn't that how it would be anywhere? You can spend as much as you want in PP or New York. There are bars with super cheap beer in America and places with twelve dollar cocktails here.

Sorry about being a cheap scate here but I guess happy hour out can be cheap too...good company means money doesn't really matter I guess and yea having fun usually means spending a fair amount...
Pre-gaming is always a good idea.. Even better if you take the rum out and just get the coke!!
on a recent visit to Vientiane I paid 45 baht for a large bottle of Beer Lao.
I miss the sidewalk bars. 130 for bourbon on the rocks, take one of the girls home for 1000 or so, no barfine. Watch the crazy show of Bkk streets the whole time. Maybe get the first Skytrain of the morning as the bars packed up.
How much you need depends on how much you make or how stupid you want to be I suppose.

Buy 1, get 1 free. Translation: 30,000 dong/$1.30/40 baht for two Tigers, 90,000/$4/120 baht for two Jagermeister shots. So for four drinks, you shell out $5.30/160 baht. A double Black Label is $3. (It's not really Black but sort of close.) HH runs 5-9 pm at Red Parrot and MK Bar. Imagine the damage you can do in 4 hours.
At the Parrot (1st pic), HH prices extend to almost everything right well into the top shelf, e.g., single malts (Bushmill's Single Malt=135,000/$5.75 but you get 1 free), imported Euro beers (Erdinger 85,000/$3.75 but get 1 free), etc.
An HH Saigon Red is 20,000/90 cents/25 baht at Offshore. Regular price 30,000/$1.30/40 baht.
In Saigon, a Belgian Heverlee pint at Phatty's (2nd pic) is 100,000/$4.40/135 baht. Non-HH.
Forgot about Cask (3rd pic, non-girly bar). They sell East-West beers. Think it was 80,000 dong/$3.50/105 baht.
