Alcohol back on menu in Chiang Mai but pubs stay closed


Chiang Mai’s ban on serving alcohol in restaurants was lifted on Monday, though night venues were not permitted to reopen.

According to the latest order, alcohol can be served until 9pm and tattoo and piercing shops are allowed to reopen. Shopping complexes and community malls can also resume normal operating times.

Venues ordered to remain closed include pubs, bars, nightclubs, massage parlours, snooker and bowling clubs, gaming centres and internet cafés.

Those caught violating will be fined up to THB20,000.
