That is indeed sad news and a hard blow for Sunee plaza. That was a nice bar and I thought it was doing ok even if business in most bars in Sunee have been slow lately.

Another bites the dust... 

The bleak future/fate of Sunee Plaza is just a matter of sooner or later.

 

In my humble opinion, Boyztown is a much rowdier place whereas Sunee allows patrons to mingle around.

Jomtien keeps the balance between the two - and I will be there in May (again?)

We can only hope another business will open in its place, but I fear that is wishful thinking.

What a shame!

It is not very rowdy in Boyztown recently with Cafe Royale and Oscars closed. Even Jomtiem Complex is quieter now except for the numerous birthday parties that keep at least one bar busy on those nights.

 

Hopefully the bars that are left in Sunee survive low season but it would take a brave or very rich farang with no financial worries to open a new bar. The chances of making a profit are remote at the best. If they could consolidate and move the remaining bars into one brightly lit soi it would make Sunee more appealing but relocating is probably too much of a cost for this option to be viable.

I’m also saddened by the demise of tingtongred and the serious health concerns of Mario, former manager.
On the bright side, I stopped in one of Sunee Plaza’s four boy gogo bars, Nice Boys last night.
The joint was jumping, full of punters ogling a stage full of hot boys. It felt like high season.
All is not doom and gloom in Sunee Plaza, although frankly it’s getting darker and darker with so many closed places.

Within Sunee Plaza the "hot spot" is centered near Elephant Bar, Green Bar, Diamond Bar, Double Shot and Euro Bar.

Winner Bar is close to the action followed by Eros. Nice Boys and Power Boys are at the entrance to the Plaza.  The only "light" on the darkened soi  is Sky Pub along with the dimly lit Good Boys.

Maybe your hope is more than wishful thinking.
There’s activity and it’s been reported that a new owner has bought the old tingtongred..

Back on topic...
The new owner is Thai and has spent years overseas.
His concept is karaoke. Whatever it ends up, it’s preferable to the darkness.

The majority of the customers inSunee Plaza seem to be too senior to go for karaoke.

But who knows?

Yeah Karaoke has never really taken off in Sunee has it?

I dont think its as popular as it used to be say 10 years ago though,

Boyz nowadays are more interested in looking at Social media than singing .

There have been a few karaoke places started up in Sunee over the years , never all really taken off.
