What happened to West 94St Pub

Post by Abbynormal » Thu Mar 29, 2018 7:30 pm

Went by there today and the place is cleaned out. Looks like they moved or just shut down. Anyone know what happened?

Really? Villa Market is a food shop, and I doubt very much that they will be entertaining any bar. :shock:

I assume this means VM by soi82 as there are many empty units in the complex there, but what about parking?

The owners of the property in Soi 94 wouldn't extend the lease by only 1 or 2 months, only by a year. So since they have planned to move to the premises next to Villa Market close to San Paolo, they chose to close end of this month. The new West 94 will open either end of April /early May according to their FB page. The venue is the same building which previously housed "Pizza Pizza by Yanee". They are opening in a partnership with VM so parking will be on the same premises as VM using.

For those who are not familiar with the new location where they will open, I have attached a Google Maps link below:

For updates I suggest you like the restaurant's FB page. You will then be able to see when they open the new place.

It would seem that their grasp of English is about as good as yours. As I posted, Villa Market is a SHOP, not a shopping area or Mall. Secondly, there are two Villa Markets in Hua Hin. It may have changed as I have not spoken with them for some time, but I know the family owners in Bangkok, and if they do indeed own that area it must be the only shop where they own the premises. It has always been their policy to lease premises, more so for the smaller shops in case, as with Venezia, it proves to be the wrong place.

I think they are moving into the corner shop where the pizza place used to be. The units just along from San Paulo.

Yes, huahin4forever has posted that. It may be that Villa Markets lease includes that area, but I doubt very much that they are going into any type of joint operation, especially in that dead corner.

It would surprise me less if Villa Market were to close that shop, as in fact, the last time I did speak with one of them they were very concerned about Blue Port opening.

I guess their saving grace could be that whereas I have always considered VM quite expensive for most things, Blueport food court makes them look quite reasonable!!

good visibility, some parking at night, but not a big space.

I think Khomapastr owns the shopping center. They were there before it was built and are still there.

Also, the concern about a “bar” in that center is a little misplaced. 94 is a restaurant. At the old location they had a very small bar that was mostly used for over flow seating. That is why this thread should be in the “Feeding” section, not the “After Dark”.

The title said 'pub' hence it was moved, if it had said 'restaurant' it would have stayed.

Will move it back.

The owner is spending a lot of time over past weeks in BKK with VM management. He is in business with them. The restaurant will be in the area where the southern VM is. It won't be on the location where VM stands - they will not be closing VM.

I know, but judging by the continued confusion, I assumed people had not read, or understood what had been posted.
