"Bliss Lounge" manageress says restaurant
turned to "oral relief" due to economic
A restaurant owner in Pattaya told authorities she turned the lights red at her eatery after falling on hard times during a raid on Wednesday evening.
Police, members of the military and local officials entered the Bliss Lounge Bar and Restaurant on Pattaya Sai 3 just after 6pm on Wednesday to find five women aged 25-25 sat in the downstairs lounge.
A foreign “mole” used to purchase sexual services at the venue following a tip off that the restaurant was a front for something more saucy was found in an upstairs room with a 25-year-old woman named only as Miss “A”.
A used condom was found together with 3 one thousand baht notes in the cash drawer that had been photocopied prior to the bust.
The 41-year-old owner told police she turned her restaurant into a beer bar offering oral relief on the side as she had fallen on hard times in the past 12 months.
She was detained and now faces solicitation charges. The 6 women working were released without charge.
