Bar open times



Can anyone at City Hall confirm what the legal bar opening times are on the Pattaya “dark side”, Soi Nernplabwan in particular?

There are several Farang owned bars on this street and all owners seem to say the same thing. Police say we must close at 12 midnight.

Recently a new bar opened on Nernplabwan directly opposite two of the Farang bars. Double wide shophouse, catering to Thais. This bar stays open until 0400 a.m. every night.

I wonder what kind of license a Farang’s wife needs to get in order to maintain these extra long hours? Is it only Thai owned that can do this?
