BANGKOK EYES PRESENTS -
The MIDNITE HOUR often receives and occasionally takes photos that are not readily classifiable in one or another of our categories. Worthy in their own right, we thought it best just to 'dump' a bunch of those photos - several of which have had reader queries in the recent past...
KHAO SARN ROAD
Mid August, just a couple of weeks ago, Stickman returned, softly, to his familiar Internet column (he was never completely gone, occasionally submitting a column here and there.) By the time you read this, he will be back on his regular weekly beat. No need to change the bookmark settings on your computer - he's right back where he always was. Welcome back.

MIDNITE HOUR MAIL BOX
Let the September 2018 Follies begin-
Jun Massage, which opened in November of 2016, has gone the way of the Hatzegopteryx. All signage removed and the roller shutter down and padlocked - looks like this is a wrap...
The Tokyo Boy lasted almost 2 months before they took the harakiri option - sayonora boys...
The Top Light Bar may, or may not be at the end of their musical chairs. Back in June, they moved out of their original digs to make room for the now-defunct Tokyo Boy, and began cohabitating with Tavern Two (dual signage). This month they moved again, this time into half of the renovating Tavern Three (...the other half of Tavern Three still under construction). May they ride the vicissitudes...
Penny Black, Pub, Disco (when they were open), pool, karaoke (when they were open), and rooms for rent - are undergoing big-time renovations. A small blackboard out front in the Soi says they still rent rooms, and they have a DJ (what is he doing?)... but everything else is closed. All neon and other signage has been removed, so lets keep an ear to the ground and see how things pan out in October...
A 'For-The-Archives' photo of the front of Nana Plaza. Up until very recently, these Nitespots facing Soi Nana allowed access through their rear doors into the Nana Plaza court area, however, due to heightened security concerns, this is no longer allowed - one must pass through the cattle-chute at the main entrance and be scrutinized by a phalanx of guards.
Hillary 1 has successfully transitioned (standing the test of time) - to its new location within the Rajah Hotel grounds. Live entertainment, good food, amicable waitresses. May they continue to abide.
Yet another Massage Parlor has opened up in Subsoi Hana (so named because the Hana Massage had been its lone occupant for years.) The new Venue is the Chitar Nuru Massage - all the way down at the end of the lane. "Nuru massage" by the way, is a gel massage - similar to an oil massage. Welcome them to the slippery slope.
Kaede was darker than a poisoned well when we passed by the other night. Undergoing top-to-bottom renovations in preparation for reopening as yet another Massage Parlor. We'll keep our eyeballs peeled and let you know on its reopening - which should be sometime this September...
The long-standing Rotsabieng is a mostly outdoor bar restaurant. It also has live music most evenings. Both the food and the music are worth the visit. May they rock on...
SOI AMBASSADOR (Sukhumvit Soi 11)
This is the latest attempt at a 'comeback' by he Happy Station 11 Bar Beer. Located in the small footpath Soi 11/2. Will they 'make it' this time 'round? We'll keep a finger on the pulse...
SOI AMBASSADOR (Sukhumvit Soi 11)
The other evening, Simple Bar 1 was roller-shuttered down - entirely hidden from the public eye. They did have a sign posted saying they would reopen first of the month... which would be right about now... We'll go back, and get back atcha if there is any news...
QUEEN's PARK PLAZA (Sukhumvit 22)
Gone, but not gone, the Love & Service Mitsu has shaken off whatever it was that was ailing it and is back a-slipping and a-sliding.
SOI DEAD ARTISTS (Sukhumvit 33)
The Chill In Bar Restaurant has re-closed. (Two months ago it was closed; last month it reopened... what gives?) A 'wait-and-see' item...
SOI EDEN (Sukhumvit 7 / 1)
A pic of the long-running Hot Male - catching an unusual reflection off the rain roof. BTW, we note three venues under renovation on the Soi... currently no indication as to which, if any, will be Night Entertainment Venues...
