Introducing Shooters!

Recommended Posts

Bruce Mangosteen

82319-4857.jpg

 

Hey, guys! Sunny Valentine (Manfred), BobsBBQ (Bob) and Bruce Mangosteen (Ray) are putting together a new place for you to hang and drink with your mates. The place will be called Shooters, and it will be located in the present location of Lennies: At the Soi Diamond entrance to Walking Street. Convenient from the baht bus route and directly accessible by motorbikes all night, Shooters will be a great place to relax, chew the rag, play with girls and, of course, DRINK!

 

Shooters will be designed around relaxed fun. No ping pong balls, no raffles, no techno or rap, just good old classic rock, blues and country played at a sensible volume level in comfortable, relaxed surroundings. Girls will be available to join your fun, but if you just want to hang with your mates, toss back a few drinks and nibble on some great Bobs BBQ food, you'll have all the space you need.

 

A special feature of Shooters will be the Private Entertainment Room in the back. In there you will have separate music and video feeds available. You can relax and watch sports, watch a movie or TV show, or even turn off the TV and spend some "quality" private time with one (or more?) of our lovely Shooters girls. The Private Entertainment Room is your place to spend a bit of time away from the crowd, doing what YOU want to do.

 

Our theme will be decidedly American, although all are welcome regardless of where you are from. We will encourage our friends to bring Americana to be put up on the walls, and there will be a place for ALL of you to plaster your stickers as well. We want Shooters to be your personal place to spend time when you are in Pattaya.

 

Ray, Bob and Manfred will be the visible faces in Shooters. I will be in the bar most evenings (when I am not called away to work), with Bob and Manfred in on various nights as well. We are friends, so on any given night you will probably find more than one of us on board anyway. We'll see to it that the music and volume are to your liking, the girls are being friendly enough (but not TOO friendly, unless you want that), and that the party keeps rolling.

 

Shooters will also feature the great food from Bobs BBQ. Bob will be adding to the menu presently available at Lennies; new offerings will include more Mexican food and a greater variety of Bob's famous slow-smoked bbq favorites.

 

Manfred has assembled a fine bar staff, and they will be invited to stay. We will also retain the girls who want to stay, so your favorite Lennies girl will still have a job if she wants it. We will keep our free internet access, and there will still be a computer for you to use to check e-mail or surf smut for your girl.

 

In all, our goal is to retain the best parts of Lennies, the polite friendly staff, the pretty ladies, the fantastic beer and liquor selection (with some great additions to be announced) and obviously the excellent and convenient location. Shooters will be Lennies kicked up a notch, an even better and more welcoming place to hang and drink.

 

Look for some changes starting this month. The goal is to "soft open" around July 1, with a Fourth of July party scheduled for, well, July 4. That will feature an American-style barbecue, with fireworks provided by the girls! Don't miss it!

 

In the meantime, please continue to come hang at Lennies. I will be back in town later this week, and you will find me in there most nights. As usual, Bob and Manfred will also be around. Come on in and share your thoughts for Shooters. We want this to be YOUR place to hang, so your opinions and ideas are welcomed and encouraged.

 

Park your bike at the entrance to Soi Diamond; no need to move it for the closing of Walking Street. Start your evening with us and some great Bob's BBQ food. Relax and hang with your friends and the Shooters girls. Bring your date for the evening around to party. Come find the night owls during our late-night hours. And have that nightcap just steps from your bike, the motorbike taxis parked right outside our door, and the baht busses that pass right by us and are parked waiting for charters across Second Road at the corner of Pattaya Tai.

 

Shooters. Your personal place to hang with friends. Stop by soon!

We're looking forward to frequent visits from both you and Jerry, mate! And, there's no such thing as the wrong accent when in Shooters!

Thanks. The other partners have all the respect in the world for the great bar that Sunny Valentine has put together. Be sure that the best parts of Lennies will be quite visible in Shooters. Please feel free to let us know what you want to see in the new bar; all input welcome and valued!

Cheers, and thanks. I originally tried to post this in there and was punted. You are free to move this thread there if you feel it is appropriate.

One thing I would like to mention: Being a hack musician myself, I want all you musicians to know that you and your axe are welcome in Shooters. We will be reconfiguring the stage so it can host both writhing vixens and wailin' musicians.

 

If you have an acoustic guitar and feel like cracking it out for a while, bring it on in. We'll have a mike and a small amp available for you to plug into. For anything more elaborate, like several pieces or an electric set, please contact us ahead of time so we can work out a good setup with you.

 

Although we will not be primarily a live music venue, we will invite our musician friends around Thailand to stop by and jam. I have a few friends in the Bangkok music business, and they will be on notice that our place is interested in either informal jam sessions or more formal gigs. We will also put the word out that the Pattaya-area musicians are welcome to pop in and jam after their own gigs. This should add up to some pleasant surprises for those of you who spend some time in Shooters. Nothing like sitting there having fun and suddenly getting a jam from Lam Morrison or Snowman or the boys from the Soi Dogs. And, we will fully expect our friend Rockin' Jerry to get his wrinkly ass up on that stage when he's in town!

 

Looking forward to seeing all you musicians at Shooters!

Sounds like a good concept. Any place with Blues, Booze, burgers and Babes is going to get my patronage. :Think1:

According to Bruce - !It's Lennies kicked up a notch" so I would guess only in name.

Thanks. Our intention is to keep the best parts of Lennies, which include the great liquor selection and the friendly staff. The music will be slightly more tightly focused on rock, blues and American country music, but will basically be unchanged from what Lennies offered, and nothing will be deleted from the collection.

 

Will the pool table be staying?
Unfortunately there just isn't room. We tried to figure a way to keep the pool table, but it takes up so much space we wouldn't have had space for the Private Entertainment Room, and we feel that this room will have real value and usefulness to the friends who come drink with us.

 

Does this mean the End of Lennie's???
Mightyone's comment was right: Look at this as a transition where we strive to keep the best parts of Lennies. We were all adamant about that. Manfred has done a cracking job putting together a great bar; we are just tweaking the style a bit to fit the concept of a place where you want to hang and drink with friends. We hope you'll give us a shot!

 

I might have to stop by next week and have a look.
That would be great and it will be cool meeting you. However, don't look for too many changes in that short of a timeframe. Things will really start kicking in later in the month to coincide with our July 1 soft opening. If you come around next week, definitely look (or ask) for me, and we can talk about your suggestions for how to make Shooters the kind of place you would want to hang in with your mates.

I kinda guessed that would be the answer & I can see why it would have to go but, i always liked shooting pool there & i will miss it. I know there's a million other places but, pool at Lennies with the girls & tequila was a favourite of mine (see various threads on here for pix).

 

I'll still be by to see how it all works at Shooters, i'm sure it will be a fun place.

Fire away, sir!

We will be keeping everything on the Lennies drinks menu, plus adding more liquors and beers!

 

Will Gate still be there ?
Every member of the staff will be asked to stay on. Gate is a friend of mine and I will make a special effort to get her to stay.

Thanks. We hope that Shooters will give Lennies customers exactly what they have come to expect.

 

Two questions,

 

Will YU still be there?

All present staff will be asked to stay on. We are aware of how popular Yu is (and she is a great girl) and we will of course make every effort to get her to stay with us.

 

And will the bar fines be 1,000B if the girls are in cut off shorts?
I recognize this for what it is. During the transition, every aspect of things will be examined. I have already brought up the subject of the barfines, and they will be reviewed to make sure they are as low as we can get them.

...pool at Lennies with the girls & tequila was a favourite of mine (see various threads on here for pix).
Believe me, I enjoyed it too. I fancy myself a pretty good pool player, and the idea of the pool table appealed to me. I was the one pushing to look for ways to keep the pool table, mate, and I drove the other guys crazy with it for a while. Look, if everybody comes in and makes us a roaring success, we'll take over the space next door and add some pool tables and other games. You do your part, and we'll do ours! :Party1:

 

I'll still be by to see how it all works at Shooters, i'm sure it will be a fun place.
Thanks. We look forward to seeing you again.

Congratulations on the new venture guys. Enjoyed Lennie's to the max, so will bring my group around when we get in in October. The kinks should be well worked out by then. I guess if you are willing to let Joe in then us Canadians may stand a chance. :Party1: Cheers. Ted

Ted ,

 

it would not be a trip for me with out a visit to Lennie's,

the girls aways make you welcome .

back then there was no private room .

so me and Gate would make a space under a table ,
