After 9 years. The number1bar and restaurant in Phuwiang ( KhonKaen) is now up for sale, due to the owner and founder, wanting a change. It's too busy to run as a single man. The bar has been in operation for 9 years, and is the ONLY bar in town. there is no other competition. The bar serves western food, organizes pool competitions (newly re-clothed coin operated pool table) and quizzes, and has a regular bingo night on Sundays.
We have a great supportive local customer base, and it's with their ongoing support that the bar has been able to operate for so long, as a community bar. There is also passing trade, and the best hotel in Phuwiang is right next door to the bar. (Pruksa hotel)
The rent on the bar is 4,000 baht a month, with an additional option of another large unit next door, which could function as a shop or home, as it has a unfurnished kitchen area, bedroom and shop area, for a further 2,000 baht a month if wanted. The bar is a large double unit bar, with a large kitchen, bedroom or storage room, and a garden, with covered washing machine area.
The bar is busiest during Aug, Sept, Oct, Nov, Dec but ticks over nicely during the other months. The contract is yearly and is ongoing. It's a lovely area, near to the National park and dinosaur park and the nearest makro's is 30 kilometres away. The town has lots of restaurants, schools, and a tescos and big c. It is worthwhile noteing that there is no visits from the local authorities, and no tea money or backhanders have ever been paid in 9 years, unlike certain other areas I can think of :) The bar is 120 square metres and more if you decide to take the unit next door.
