Are the shisha pictures prior to the crackdown? Or are they still openly selling shisha in Bangkok?

 

El Gaucho seems to be the expat favorite for steaks in Bangkok..been meaning to go there sometime myself.

I think the shisha crackdown is from a local ordinance.  A shrewd Bangkok bar manager could probably recruit half the girls from Soi 6 about now.

Definitely worth a look if you don't want girly bars. A few places with live music, places to play pool, good places to eat. It depends what you are after.

A quiet Sunday morning

Site of the legendary Cheap Charlies Bar, a Bangkok institution for decades.  Now the entire cul de sac is being cleared for more luxury condos.

El Gaucho Steakhouse has moved further down the Soi.

Starbucks has arrived, there goes the neighborhood.  Even the BJ Bar is gone now.

Site of the former Q Bar

Insanity Disco and V8 Diner moved in to compensate for closure of Climax Disco, occupying the spot previously used by the St. Regis.

Shame that courtyard is gone. Nice little oasis tucked away from the hustle of Soi 11.

Ive stayed i Soi 11 on the last 3 visits to Bangkok. To be honest it has lost its fun factor and the traffic is a pain in the ass.

On Sukhumvit at Soi 10, Chuwit Garden is to be replaced by a mall.  It's a pity since there's not a lot of open space around. Formerly known as Sukhumvit Square, populated by bars and GoGos when purchased by Chuwit Kamolvisit.  Does anyone remember? He hired a few hundred thugs to demolish the businesses at 4 AM Jan 26, 2003 to dispel the tenants.

I recall enjoying a cigar on the gazebo in the back (before I realized no smoking was permitted).

Meanwhile, construction on the Q House at Soi 6 coming along nicely.  Asking price for a condo starts at 30 million.

 

DSC_8665.jpg

 

This was the state of construction 2 years ago

Much slower pace across the street where the new Hyatt Regency is being constructed between Soi 11 and Soi 13. They've been at this for 6 years!  The new hotel is due to open the second half of this year.

The Mystery of the Missing Massage Shops
 
Adjacent Villa Market were a sequence of shops starting with an Indian Restaurant and ending with a hair salon, with 8 small massage shops (all offering happy endings) in between. The massage shops were open until 3-4 AM.
 
DSC_8695.jpg
DSC_8691.jpg
 
Last month, all the massage shops closed, but not by any police action.  Evidently, leases expired and the businesses were forced to move, but only the massage shops, all other businesses remained.
 
DSC_8694.jpg
 
Furthermore, an additional 10 massage shops behind Villa Market closed, while another two restaurants, a travel agency, and another hair salon remained.
 
DSC_8685.jpg
 
A short distance away, another 3 massage shops closed between the Bangkok Bank and the pharmacy.  In summary, over 20 massage shops closed last month, while the 6 other businesses intermixed remained open (3 restaurants, a travel agency, and 2 hair salons) .

Bummer!

UPDATE:  The Cheap Charlie cul-de-sac was open today for a garage sale.  Normally cordoned off, and no trespassing, so I took the opportunity for some snaps.  (See page 1 of this topic to see as it was.)

 

Entering from the north end, formerly the Suk 11 Guesthouse

Chez Pape still has a "Help Wanted" sign out.

 

DSC_8722.jpg

 

Looks pretty shabby, good thing you can't see much of it from the street.

 

DSC_8720.jpg

DSC_8712.jpg

 

Here's the southern end, with the former site of Cheap Charlie's on the left. 

 

BTW,  Cheap Charlie's has reopened in On Nut

Good photos that I really appreciate as I have spent so much time in these areas over the years. Things are changing so quickly these days on Sukhumvit. A shame about Cheap Charlies but great to see it has reopened in On Nut near to where I often stay when I'm in Bangkok. I know On Nut very well and will be sure to pop in to their new location the next time I'm in Bangkok.
