    Patong: Soi Freedom (ex. Soi Eric) - reviews?

    Anyone around at the moment? I hear the Soi is finally open and some bars already operating.

    Pictures would be good!

    These were taken last week:

    It might come together faster than I am thinking but it looks miles off being ready. There were no bars in and no floor last week.

    Exactly that. I thought they were going to cover the whole soi as they have in Seadragon but clearly not. If they are not doing that I don't see the point in such a major refurb, looks pretty much the same to me so far.

    Strange, Guitar Bar's FB page is showing pictures of what I presumed as the new bar but I couldn't tell (it does look a bit different). They also posted on the 23rd saying it would be open that night, so I presumed the pictures that followed were from the new bar.

    The decor looks different to me:

    That is strange. I left on the 20th and there looked to have been little progress from when I took the pictures.

    Just had a look at their FB page and it's pretty clear they say they opened on the 23rd, maybe it came together over the weekend??

    It's not though, it's on Freedom - even in this shot you can see Lucky Bar which is on Soi Freedom, and their FB also say they're open.

    (spot the familiar face...)

    Likewise, going for a long weekend for Loy Krathong. It will be odd I can't remember if people said they'd be keeping the MTB name or not, as that'd be even weirder.

    Lucy was taking over the former MTB licence when the soi re-opened...so I am guessing that's her bar in the shot...so MTB is now Lucky Bar

    Money can't buy love but it can rent a pretty close imitation.
