As much as it pains me to say this I can see Sunee becoming a ghetto with a mix of Arab shops, a few cheap rooms to rent and possibly a place with a late night snooker table for the mini-mafia boys to hang out. That's about it.

Wouldn't the activities Eros has as a trademark be a bit awkward if clients are cramped into a smaller area...
Happy Boys used to have similar activities on small premises, although an even smaller indoors section was added for the full experience.

People's behaviour can be very domain dependent.

Many would feel uncomfortable wearing shorts & t-shirt at church*, but OK in most other places.
We may be comfortable wearing Speedos on the beach, but not in Central Shopping Centre.
Nudity might be OK in sauna, but not on the beach.
Some tame petting and a short kiss might be the limit of it in the "posh" gogo bars. Meanwhile in the smutty gogo bars people are comfortable engaging in oral sex, or at least getting passionate with a naked lad on your lap, as that is relatively common.

gerefan, you have summed up the situation perfectly - location, location, location.

There have been rumours about madam Sunee selling out to developers for years, and yet nothing has changed.

I always enjoyed a visit to Happy Boys. I once had a "massage" on the top floor but never ventured to the 1st floor. I just enjoyed the fun of the boys in the main bar. Drinks were cheap and I happy bought lots. I always wondered why that bar closed. Was it indeed a result of its location being 50 meters or so outside Sunee and a lack of customers? Did the owner just get tired and sell up? Anyone know?

The owner went broke and skipped out of Thailand - and hasn't been seen or heard from since.

Running a gogo bar is probably a good way to go broke. Particularly one located out on it's own where any newbie needs a map to find it, as was the case with Happy Boys.

To a much lesser extent, even Eros should take care to make it obvious to newbies that their bar is there AND is open.

What else would you have them do, Eros and Winner have a web site are meters from each other and Winner thrives?

One of the guys whose worked there for years now has. A new job in Day Night area. Working in a restaurant and only ventures into Sunee after midnight. So maybe he sees the writing on the wall.

My latest information is Eros is looking for a venue, or perhaps a double, where they can relocate on the Krazy Dragon - Good Boys soi.
