Pattaya’s Hollywood Club closes again as it awaits foreign tourists




After Covid-19 forced Patttaya’s ‘The Hollywood Club’ to close and reopen, the establishment is now once again closed and reportedly awaiting a green light allowing foreign tourists to return. Damrongkiat Pinitkan, the club’s owner, says, “Our major customers are foreign tourists. We still did not open the club zone when the last phase of removing Covid-19 lockdown restrictions allowed us to open.”

“However, we did open our restaurant and karaoke zones which have many regular Thai customers.”

He says that the staff requested for The Hollywood Club zone to reopen as well several weeks ago as it was initially thought to bring in Thai customers. However, upon evaluating the club’s performance after reopening, it was decided to close yet again due to an insufficient number of customers.

“We will re-open when international flights return to Thailand with foreign tourists.”

“During this difficult time for our loyal staff, we will open a small market in the parking area in front of Hollywood Pattaya for them to sell food in the late afternoon which will start next week.”

Pinitkan says karaoke and restaurant areas will continue to operate despite the closing of other zones within the club.

    It’s a real shame that Thailand and other ASEAN countries have chosen these draconian rules in shutting tourism money off. The far greater risk to the population who rely on tourism revenue for their income and livelihoods will be far more wide reaching and detrimental than Covid ever was.

    Farangs no longer welcome. Tourist areas are now ghost towns. Property prices will fall further. Thai Baht strength vs European currencies has made Thailand a poor value for money destination but will collapse as banks go under. I’ve no interest in doing quarantine as wouldn’t want to stay more than 3 weeks. As for retirement why would I want to put 3M Baht into a Thai bank account given current fragile conditions?

      Where on earth did you get this mystical figure of B3m for retirement….the actual figure is B800,000 and even this amount does not have to stay permanently in your account
