The New Tiger Entertainment Complex in the famous Soi Bangla in Patong Beach is about to take a serious bite at the nightlife scene in Phuket. With three floors dominated by three massive tigers, much higher ceilings and a lot more room to walk around the new Tiger is a party monster. A blast of lights and colors are taking this gigantic Flintstones cave looking venue to a much higher level of party zone.
The original Soi Tiger has been open for more than a decade and was often used as a Landmark in Patong. It had some ups and downs, but already, there was no way to miss it. On the ground floor were all the little beer bars with the girls dancing on the counter for most, and upstairs was, and still is, the popular Tiger Discotheque. The entire building was easy to recognize with this rocky cave look you will see in several other places in Patong, such as the Tiger Inn, and the Patong Boxing Stadium in the back of Jungceylon.
But lately, this good old the old Tiger is looking very tired and the crowds, like moths, are attracted by brighter the lights and the dominating look of the new boss in town. Maybe it is time for this old veteran to get that well reserved retirement.At the time this story is written, only the ground floor has been completed and even if only half of the available bars are rented, it already looks busy and lively. The new Tiger is very ambitious and so vast, it could easily swallow three times the old one.
Some bar names sounds rather familiar like Stockholm bar and some sound new in town: Pink Paradise, Mini Cooper Bar. Q Bar and Blix occupy the prime spots just on the street front.
Anyway, bars come and go and names as well. The new Tiger will see some ups and down like its elder brother, but the battle for Bangla supremacy is looking promising for the New Tiger.
