Livingstone Lodge closed in the second half of 2013 after the German owner sold it to a Frenchman called Frank who renovated it and renamed it Ocean. Frank put a lot of money in to it and had grandiose plans and was aiming more for the Thai market than expats. It did ok for a short period and then sort of petered out. It closed down a few years ago, and things got ugly at the end with the venue locked up, a large fence put around the complex, and a couple of permanent residents' belongings stuck inside. They eventually got their belongings back after a few months.

All of the shophouses out front were pulled down late last year and when I was last in town, a couple of months ago it was still a mess with no new business in its place.

The owner is retired and enjoying life in Bangkok. The manager, also a German, now owns and runs the superb G's restaurant in Silom soi 4.

Here's a snap of what was Livingstone's from right outside, taken in March.
