Is Barry John Wilson still around? His parents must have been Welsh rugby fans.

Cadillac seems to be cursed.
What happened to that Monsta sports bar near the Cadillac?
That always looked ill fated.
The original Cadillac was just a single shop front. It seemed popular and do well. Then Monsta opened up.. next door? It didn't seem to do so well. Then Cadillac was sold and combined with Monsta (?) to make it double shop front it is today.
Cadillac was bought by that boiler room guy Barry John Wilson. He probably didn't care if it made money.

Interesting. They had an Irish guy called Johnny that managed Cadillac before the Swedes took over (of Harry's Place fame in Pattaya). Before that he managed Shanghai. I had asked the staff what nationality the actual owner was and they told me Swiss...then again, how would they know and maybe that's what they wanted them to believe..

Anyway, this Barry Wilson didn't keep the place long before selling it. The other interesting thing in that link, is that Wilson also had Chaplans bar on st 108 and also had an ex Shanghai manager working there called Dusty. Some of the Shanghai girls followed Dusty apparently but couple of times I went past it was dead. And last time I went past a few months ago I noticed it has closed..total flop. Bad location I would have thought.
