2022 Thailand Bar and Entertainment Closure and No Booze Days

Want to make sure you are aware of the religious holidays that per Thai law close all the bars for 2022?

Well, Pattaya Unplugged is here for you. The following days are guaranteed closure days for 2022. This means that Bars, Entertainment venues, Gogos, etc are closed. Sales of ALL booze is prohibited. No stores, restaurants or hotels will legally sell these days. Nightclubs, live music places, etc will be closed. Most tourist attractions, restaurants, malls, movies, etc. are open….but NO booze is sold on these days. There are five guaranteed closure days and a few “possible” days.

However, due to Covid-19, bars, and nightlife have been banned currently since April 10th, 2021. We will update this when bars are allowed to legally open once again. This was last updated in February 2022, approaching ten months of closures. Many venues, however, have been legally allowed to reopen as “restaurants” in the interim with altered rules and sell alcohol.

The following five days below are guaranteed total alcohol sales ban days. If bars are opened, they will also be shut these days:

Makha Bucha Day 16 February, Wednesday
