Pattaya’s Hollywood Club closes again as it awaits foreign tourists | The Thaiger
  • follow us in feedly

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

A 74 year old man who climbed to the top of a high voltage power pole in Pattaya has been rescued by the local fire department. The Pattaya News reports that the unnamed man was said to be suffering from depression when he decided to climb the pole in the Nong Pru area of the city around 10.30pm last night.

A local resident who witnessed the incident notified the police, who arrived at the scene with rescue workers and firefighters. Officials also enlisted the help of a monk from a nearby temple, who used a loudhailer in an attempt to persuade the man to climb down from his perilous position.

The man did start to come down, but due to his age, he was overcome with exhaustion and couldn’t proceed. Firefighters then used a fire truck and a crane to rescue him, after which he was taken to hospital for a psychiatric assessment.

A woman who lost control of her car, making the vehicle flip over, has had a lucky escape, along with her 2 young children, who were unharmed in the incident. 36 year old Suweena Rodpan says she was driving in the rain, on Pattaya’s Sukhumvit Road, when she lost control of the car due to the wet surface. She subsequently collided with another vehicle in front of her, before her own car flipped over.

Suweena, along with her 11 year old son and 8 year old daughter, were not injured in the incident, nor was the driver of the other vehicle.

Pattaya City Police have launched an investigation into the accident, but it is not yet known if Suweena will face charges.
