Le Pub Pattaya

0

Le Pub bar Pattaya is located the Soi Diamond alleyway between 2nd Road and Walking Street in Pattaya, Thailand. It was previously the Charming Crab bar but changed name, and ownership in December 2016. As well as all the standard beers and spirits it offers a wide range of specialist gins and tequilas plus has draft cider on tap. There is a nice pool table at the rear of the bar although most customers seem to prefer to sit at the roadside tables to watch the world go by.

It is both owned and operated by a very well known former gogo bar manager, known as Mr Egg. Very popular guy and one reason the bar has become so well known in such a short space of time.

Opening hours – 6 pm to 04.00 am

Yesterday, the last five patients in the Pattaya area who had been suffering from covid-19 symptoms, were released from hospital.
Chonburi province has reported no new cases of covid-19 for 13 consecutive days.
This is great news for all locals and potential tourists alike.
Our city has been locked down by road blocks for several weeks, we have worn face masks in public, shut down local businesses and hotels and been cleaning our businesses and public places.
I’m proud of the effort that locals have put into eradicating this disease at the moment. We will be keeping our guard up to make sure we keep it that way.

I can’t give you any news about when the airlines will be flying, or even when the bar is open again. But, I can assure you we will do it when it is right and safe to do so.

In the mean time, we still have girls sleeping in the bar and preparing their own meals for free. Thanks to all who have given ingredients. Excuse me if I don’t publish photos of the girls who are here, it’s for their own safety and privacy. I’m sure you understand.

I have also been paying some of the salaries of staff who aren’t staying here.

Me and the girls have repainted the bar (still yellow, I’m lazy to change it ) and I will be doing a deep clean of the aircon systems and fumigating the bar before we open.

Please stay in this with us together and we will be enjoying a few cold beers in Le Pub soon enough.
That sounds like a dream, but it will soon come.
Stay safe friends

The government has today announced a further extension of one month to the emergency lockdown measures.
That means that the curfew is in place for another month.
What this means for the bar is that these measures have to be met before I can open.
1: Easing of curfew
2: Reinstating sales of alcohol (provincial)
3: Easing of social distancing regulations

I have then heard that all entertainment venues will have to apply to the government to reopen.

These are the measures to take to be able to open JUST FOR EXPATS

Then, travel restrictions including lifting bans on foreigners traveling into the country have to be lifted before any sort of tourism can resume.

That, in black and white, is what I am facing before I can begin to see any sort of return to profitability for the business.

It’s a long road ahead.

I have a very good landlord, the best. He is giving me a rent holiday whilst I am closed. But I have six staff staying in the bar which incurs electric and water costs. I’m providing food for them, and I’ve been helped by some of my regular customers, for which we are all so grateful. Thank you.
I also have to pay legal fees such as social fund and tax, I’ve been told if I don’t pay some sort of income tax I won’t get my visa and work permit on renewal.

A month ago, I took the decision that if I wasn’t open by June 1st I would turn off the water and electric in the bar and the staff would have to return to their family homes. I can see that date coming around and I’ll be in the same position as I am today.
I have stayed away from offering any opinion on all of this and just done what the government has told us. Together, we have got the numbers of new cases of the virus down to single figures nationally and zero for days in Chonburi province.
But now I have to say that unless there is some sort of help from government to help us through the months and months I fear we must close, then there is just no point in me trying to keep the business going.
Every day, I walk past rows upon rows of people waiting in line for charitable handouts of food and water from individuals and businesses. Thai people hungry.
I have the appropriate visa and work permit, my company registers staff and pays social fund every month. My company pays tax every year on profits. The government seems happy to sacrifice the tourism industry to keep the numbers low.
Some of my staff have received the emergency handout to casual workers. Some have received some of their salaries paid by the government. Some social fund payments have been frozen.
I am asking the government to consider the following.

* Consider entertainment venues with outdoor seating to open up to the curfew hours, if social distancing and hygiene standards are observed. (This is being considered in other countries)
* Defer all payments for entertainment licenses till we are open fully.
* If entertainment venues open without music, Government work with music licensees to offer refunds or discounts on future licenses.
* Consider government backed loans to registered businesses in the tourism/ entertainment sector to help is through the lockdown
* Local government relax payments of signage tax
If the restrictions don’t ease soon and we can begin the road to opening that I have outlined above, I will have to conclude that I will be just throwing good money away.

I receive messages every day from customers old and new, many in Pattaya now, telling me that they can’t wait to get back to Thailand, come party in Pattaya and even come to my bar. I hope to be able to welcome them.
But, hope for this business and the nightlife in Pattaya is running out.
