50 Held in Pattaya Lesbian Bar Raid

Pattaya Blossom Pub Raid Thailand Bar1

More than 50 people were detained when Pattaya-area officials raided a lesbian bar open long after hours and flouting disease-control regulations.

Banglamung District Chief Amnart Charoensri led the squad of 50 police and administrators to the Blossom Pub on Soi Bongkot in South Pattaya around 3:30 a.m. today. They turned the lights up and the music down and drug-tested everyone and checked identification cards.

While no drugs or underage revelers were found, there was plenty disregard for safety, with no temperatures being checked, few people wearing masks and no one social distancing. The party people were told to go home and the pub manager hauled into Pattaya Police Station.

Blossom is closed indefinitely and the management charged with selling alcohol without a license, operating past midnight and violating disease-control laws.
