I will add though that I do not see the small night market or another pub/club/bar helping the farang owned places. Mainly Thais will frequent those. Plus parking will again be difficult. I never saw Speed 3 as being very advantageous for the places along the soi either. The youngsters going there spent their money in Speed 3 and ate mostly from the few street stalls around there or before going there later in the evening after eating elsewhere. It never seemed to help Norby's business and actually he hated it due to the parking of the thousand or so motocykes there and the fights and trouble caused by the drunken youths.I heard the same.
