Now under a new name: El Toro. The place was closed down for 5 months or so and have now been opened for 4 or so months. It's history has not been encouraging. I've lived on Soi 80 ('The Nice Side' :roll: ) for 10 years now and this place has had at least 3 names and/or new owners. I have no idea whether the same owners renovated, or whether it's under new ownership. I suspect the latter.
Every owner of this space has tried hard: lots of expensive-looking renos, a few have had live music, a decent looking menu.
El Toro has a pool table (which seems to be used mostly by staff) and as I walk past so many times at different hours I rarely see a customer, or if they do have a few customers the numbers are assuredly not enough to carry on with for an overly long time unless there are Deep Pockets hanging around. At least right now.

I assume that the problem lies in the fact that they are not a Lady Bar. Soi 80 is a 90% Lady Bar place and the whole ambiance on the street says it all. One would think that a pure restaurant-with-music might well be successful if for nothing else might act as a kind of recuperation spot for 60-yr old gents looking to get out ~ for a half hour or so ~ of the hubbub and The Hunt.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
As an aside regarding Soi 80 in general: I mentioned above that we've lived on Soi 80 for 10 years. In that time frame the number of bars along the street have gone from 'about' 15-20 in 2007 to 'about' 50 now as of June 2017.
In 2007 there were lots of townhouses that were strictly live-in ... probably in the 20's or 30 range (not scientific ... just my memory guesstimate). Now ~ I counted this not long ago ~ there are 3. I'm not including the north side, there are still lots of quite large, and rich, homes there. But on the south side, almost none.
Just one more reason why I love living in Thailand ...

This place: Garden / El Toro and many other names in the past has never been successful. In short it's a cursed place.
