We caught up with Khun Chayangurn Ardam ( aka Tai ), a partner of the celebrated Telephone prevention good on Silom Soi 4. Khun Tai tells us about the flourishing era before Covid-19, and how the pandemic has affected this celebrated bar in Bangkok .

“ The economy will need respective years before it could recover, but our commercial enterprise won ’ metric ton be the same since most of our customers came from oversea and the regulars don ’ triiodothyronine come here every night. ” Chayangurn Ardam (aka Tai)

We opened the Telephone stripe over 30 years ago, and made it a memorable position for both tourists and party goers, and has become an institution where LGBTQI people would come.

Silom Soi 4 is the color of the city that celebrates cultural and community diverseness in the heart of Bangkok, attracting local and overseas tourists. The bustling night scene attracts people seeking fun, adventure, or just to hang out with friends. We welcome diversity, and though many people think it is only for LGBTQI people we besides receive tied families, straights and LGBTQI allies due to its choice placement. Silom Soi 4 besides attracts those seeking workplace for both Thais and neighbor countries, and it is a pipe dream address that is full of opportunities filled with tourists and party-goers .

What made Telephone Bar so celebrated and able to operate until today is due to our fame customer service. In the past, when we started, technology was not this advance and people didn ’ t have their own cell phones, at the bar when they wanted to hit on person or say hawaii to each other we have something singular that no early bars have. Our concept was born to have a call on each table so customers can call each other and this became our sell point. But nowadays we don ’ t have telephones anymore because of the technology and the rise of messaging applications, however, the spell of the bar is however there where we have great cordial reception services. I would come to the cake every nox because some customers want to see me because of my cordial reception. so, I made certain we keep to our high standards, whether it ’ mho cordial reception, and food, we besides have karaoke .

“When the bar survives, so does our staff”

When Covid-19 strike, and we had to close our doors as ordered from the government, we had to suspend some of our staff and the saddest partially of all is that our business international relations and security network ’ t one of the priorities for the health easing. But we still keep all of our staff, finding ways to help the business and for our staff to get through this crisis. We have 26 staff, some are included within Thai social security and 6 are in part time positions. During lockdown there is no income, merely bills, from utilities, insurance and staff. Some of the staff get stand-in packages from social security but it isn ’ thymine adequate, some have to go back to their hometown and some may never come back, some staff decided to find other jobs with more predictable wages .

The economy will need several years before it could recover, but our business won ’ deoxythymidine monophosphate be the lapp since most of our customers are from abroad and the regulars don ’ triiodothyronine fall here every night. busy nights are normally Fridays and Saturdays. During the weekdays there aren ’ triiodothyronine that many customers like before Covid-19. The government does not support the bar and entertainment clientele, though we provide substantial income to the economy, and this sector is constantly the last to be opened due to Covid-19 measures. A local NGO, SWING provides us and our staff with respite packages and meals, where the government never bothers to care .
I want to let all our customers know that Silom Soi4 – a home of diverseness where restaurants, karaoke, bars and haul shows are available and we welcome everyone. We want to tell you that for the newcomers, Silom Soi 4 is not only barely gay bars. There is more to that, just come and have some dinner or sing some karaoke or watch some of the fiercest embroil shows in Thailand. We can not entirely rely on alien tourists anymore and we want our locals to support us. You can come and have a new world chat with food and sing a sung. Silom Soi 4 constantly welcome you. “ When the legal profession survives, then does our staff ”.
