Gay Street not so Gay Today

Postby Playboy » Sat Feb 10, 2018 7:55 pm

So rumour had it that all of the recently opened, or recently bought out, bars on Sabay Sabay Street (formerly known as Street174) were closed last night and the locks changed.

I just took a drive along that section of road - on my way to one of the few bars on that Street not owned by a certain German - and it seems correct, they were all closed up, shuttered and locks on the doors.

The only exception seemed to be the hotel and apartment block that had its lights on, two security guards outside, and a receptionist visible at the front desk.

Given that he has just refurbished Valentino's Restaurant and Night Club - at great expensive - and invested heavily into all the other bars and properties he has bought along that stretch, I wonder if he simply ran out of cash, or if something else is the cause of this sudden closure ??

One of my khmer friends told me a month ago that the guy had stepped on somebody toes as well as got himself involved in something that shouldn't have. His protector patient was allegedly running thin and he gave him a few months in the country at most. He also said that the guy had so much cash that would buy anything people offered him, even garbage investments. Could also be that they just closed for Chinese New year.

Is that the same German that claims to have been a major player in the film industry in his time?

He leased out the Kambuja Inn and gutted it to turn it into a recording studio. It is still unfinished. If he has closed up I hope they got a good deposit as the place is no where near a hotel now.

Is the Happy Damrei cafe that he bought also closed?

Are the security guards at the end of the street gone?

If it is true he has done Millions. Not one of those businesses was ever busy or successful from what I saw.

Don't worry, LJ - ricecakes may be upset about the closures, but he can still hunt for husbands over at Ballsac Lane.
