The future of Bed

Interior of Bed

I checked my email earlier and I received a message from an owner of Bed who is also one of their resident DJs. They are conducting a survey asking about the nightlife preferences of PLUs. Here’s the introduction of the email:

We are conducting a research study in an effort to understand your needs for an ideal night out. Your input will help us determine what products and services will best meet your needs and expectations. We estimate that it will take you approximately only five (5) minutes to complete the survey.

The survey is hosted at Zoho and it contains tons of questions ranging from what do you look for in a club (music? crowd? drinks?) to where do you usually go on night outs (Malate? Makati? Ortigas?). The survey itself has no references at all to Bed and if you encountered it without any context, you might think that it’s a market study for a future bar or club.

I was initially hesitant at posting the link to the survey since there was no mention to spread the word, but since they linked to it from their public Facebook group (though not at their Facebook page) over two weeks ago, I think it’s fair game.

Anyway, the survey seems to hint that the Bed we all knew indeed ceased existing last July 8. Since the club got burned down, the owners might as well rethink the whole thing again instead of repairing and reopening the old bar, right? So it seems Mugen was right. Add that to rudeboy’s comment on my previous entry and the rumors I’ve personally heard from a friend, and we are looking at a possibly new PLU venue maybe next year.

In the meantime, there will be a Bed-sponsored party entitled Commandance this August 7 at Barrakz Bar at Tomas Morato corner Timog for all of the Bed-heads that are having withdrawal symptoms.

Have you taken the survey? What do you think of it and the future of Bed?

Can't imagine the gayboys trooping at Barrackz for a Bed Party. Sounds interesting though. Hehehehe!

My wild guess, they'd put the new BED somewhere in Makati.

Interesting...

@Mugen, oh? Is Barrakz a masculine bar? :-)

@Carrie, go go!

@demigod, pero saan kaya? Makati Avenue? Malugay Street?

@Guyrony, nang-iintriga ka na naman. Hehehe.

Makati Ave is fine, kaso mahirap parking. or Perhaps, somewhere in the same area as Greenbelt. :)

@demigod, I doubt the Greenbelt area would be an option. Rent there is quite expensive, which might make the club's entrance fee exorbitant!

Where's the link? I'd like to answer the survey. Thanks.

@Nathanology, unfortunately, it seems that the survey is already closed. :(
