Jorgen Lundbaek celebrated on Wednesday 12 October 2011 his 67 year birthday with a soft opening of the bar in his new Mermaid Hotel in Sukhumvit Soi 29 managed by Admiral Pub & Restaurant. The pub was filled with around 200 revellers celebrating Jorgen Lundbaek and at the same time satisfying their curiousity as to how the new Admiral Pub & Restaurant was coming along.
At three in the afternoon, the walls in the pub were still being painted and the Carlsberg draught system was only being tested. Still, when the first guests trickled in at a few minutes to seven the whole place was clean and ready for the celebrations.
Wanna Laasholdt’s work with the traditional Admiral favorites and other snacks was highly appreciated and all food disappeared fast. By nine, hotdogs were brought in and hardly hit the table before they were snapped up.
Admiral Pub & Restaurant will remain open as a pub until the restaurant and the rest of the hotel will eventually be finished and ready for a grand opening later.
