Listing the bars of Pattaya

The following reviews are those that I come across on the web, in guide books, from contributors and of course from my own visits. Reviewers may be unreasonably harsh and bar owners may present a rosy picture of their bars...so don't take everything at face value...go and see for yourself.

  Review from Pattaya Rag, Oct 2007: Massive Stable

Amazing Paradise Bar has a massive stable of girls and flat screen TVs. Not sure which there was more of....

The majority of lookers were pulling punters in from the street and sadly that's what they continued to do once we were in the bar. Company in the bar was provided by a more mature group of ladies. We managed to grab the sofas by the entrance and it was a good vantage point for watching the girls out front and the girls passing by.

Don't want to appear fussy but I would rate only 3 or 4 of the girls as being worthy of my dosh.

  Review from Pattaya-Live Jan 2010: One of the Better Open Bars

A busy bar and so are a few of the bars either side of it. It has quite a few girls in the bar, probably around 20, some good lookers amongst them. A no hassle bar in terms of lady drinks .

Good afternoon happy hour prices, but the place doesn't really come alive until the evening when the girls come on duty. Happy hour prices 45 Baht for bottle of Singha.

One of the better open air bars in town.

  Review from Pattaya-Live May 2008: Good prices and friendly girls

The girls there are always friendly and enjoy just playing the games and trying to entice a farang to take them home. They are however choosy and the mama does not pressure them to leave with anyone. Good prices and friendly girls what more is there to ask for?

  Review July 2006: Watching Out For Own Goals

I randomly selected the bar for a bit of World Cup viewing. I chatted a while to a friendly Australian but he departed in search of an Australian Rules football match rather than the World Cup.

England were being a little boring so I opted for a bit of people watching. The girls seemed to be enjoying themselves watching the game, chatting or playing the dice game behind the bar. They were a distinctly average crew but there were four decent looking girls that were posted as welcome girls.

I spent some time looking out for some potential customers to walk past and to be 'welcomed in'. I was wondering whether the attractive welcome girls would pair off with the newcomer or whether the newcomer would just be dumped with the average girls behind the bar. (And then he would, no doubt, take one beer and leave pronto).

My theory will have to wait for another day though...there simply were no customers to be seen.  When it started raining cats & dogs I had to abandon the research and return to the strikerless England display.

Ugly old women, and farm fresh girls, nothing in the middle, beer not so cold (has turned me on to the idea of ice in the beer), good place to take a shit if needed (hey its important to know a good shitter on each and every soi). Still fun as a great daytime people watcher

Cherry Bar Soi Diana

 Cherry Bar

Beer bar

The owner reports about the trials and tribulations of running a bar on the Pattaya forums under the board name Hammer. The Bar complex was redeveloped from May to July 2008. Moved to Soi Diana in September 2012.

  News September 2012: A New Cherry

Citing a declining walk by trade in Soi 8 and a inclining rent, Adam of Cherry Bar has decided to upsticks and move to Soi Diana.

So Cherry Bar is now located in the clutch of beer bars between Megabreak Pool and Papagayo.

Adam has always earned a good trade via proactive contribution to Pattaya nightlife and Pattaya forums and should do well in the upcoming Soi Buakhao area.

  March 2006: Popular Host

Hammer seems a very popular host, many reports of useful assistance to newbies and the bar is well established as the meeting/starting point of many a Pattaya bar crawl.

The bar seems lively and successful enough probably assisted by visitors from PattayaTalk. Certainly overshadows neighbouring bars.

Previously a very expensive coyote bar, then ended the dancing and is operating as a beer bar. Then renamed to Tropical Entertainment. See below

  News from Ishi, August 2013: Dancing ended

The bar has now taken a way the dancing stage and is operating as a beer bar

  News from February 2013: Scaled Up

23 Club coyote bar on Soi 8 has returned to a double unit format.

  News from Durian Doug, November 2012: Scaled Down

23 Club coyote bar on Soi 8 has reopened in a single unit with the the other 2 units for sale / rent.

  News from Durian Doug, August 2012: Gutted

Club 23 presumably is planning something new and at the moment is a gutted shell. Building work was completed but the bar is closed and up for sale.

  Prices January 2010: Very Expensive

Reports of being very expensive 700 Baht bar fine and 200 Baht lady drinks. 120 Baht for Heineken and 220 Baht for a Corona and lots of Thai guys to sort out any bill disputes.

Cocktail bar sign

Cocktail Bar

Pattaya Klang (Central road opposite Tops supermarket)

 Cocktail Bar

  November 2005: Unkempt

Quite a large bar with a rather unkempt feel. It is not far from the Soi 7/8 bar area buts its location overlooking  a supermarket is not exactly glamourous.

Not really much to say about the bar. It was sparsely populated with average bar girls who seemed to be mostly intent on their own eating rituals.

  News, February 2014: Closing

It seems that the bar has been solved and the Coral Reef will be no more

  Review from Pattaya-Live, February 2009:  Friendly Bar

It's a friendly bar run by Phil who I think has had the bar for about 14 years.

The bar has a few ex-pat regulars who are normally a friendly bunch. Also the bar has a number of holidaymakers who make it there regular when they are in town.

  June 2006: My Place

You could do worse than pop down my place. The Coral Reef bar opposite the Sunshine hotel. Decent 70's/80's music, friendly staff and a decent bunch of lads, both holiday makers and expats. No air con, sorry but plenty of fans and a good view of the nightly parade up and down the soi!!

Beer bar, recently relocated to the other side of the soi

  Review from Pattaya-Addicts, July 2009: Cheap Drinks

The Dennis The Menace bar is good, big screen for watching sport and cheap drinks. Liam the manageress is really nice.

  Review by Nightmarch, January 2006: Cleaner and Fresher

The Dennis The Menace beer boozer is certainly cleaner and fresher than most of its rivals in Fun Town and offers a good happy hour. Their advertising says 'Campanologists welcome'. Yes, I had to look up the word as well: it means bell ringers. High season usually has plenty of two-week millionaires prepared to turn campanologist with very little urging, so Dennis and his damsels should be doing OK.

Dom's Bar

Dom's Bar

Pattaya Soi 7

 Dom's Bar

Beer Bar

Recommended to me by a Thai monk who's brother runs the bar. I found it reasonably civilised without quite so many calls of 'welcome hansum man' etc. Perhaps a good location for a quiet game of pool.

Dom's Bar is split into three sections: there's the bar itself. A couple of regular-sized TVs are always on, usually showing sport. There are about 8 girls in attendance

The second section comprises of two pool tables at 20 baht a game. The girls are always happy to beat you hollow.

The final section is a lounge featuring wicker chairs.

  Review from Pattaya-Addicts, April 2009: Eagle Eyed

35 Baht for small bottle of Tiger Beer, watch your bins though.

  Review from Pattaya Secrets, July 2008: Mai Paeng

30 baht for sang sum coke, 30 baht a beer.

Although I do agree with a small bit there are a few idiots and low life’s in the bar, it also has a good bunch of colourful characters drinking there, when all the other bars are empty this place is full it is still one of the best afternoon bars in patts. I have always had a good time in the eagle I have been drinking there for years, only in the afternoon though

  Review from Chris, May 2006: A Bit of Banter

I would like to add that the eagle bar was sound when I was there. I found it the best place to chill and have a drink in the day. I didn't take any of the girls from the bar as I knew that I probably wouldn't have then gone back again the day after (me being bit of a butterfly!). Just didn't want to miss out! The girls were so easy to get on with and unlike other bars conversation went past 'take me with you' or 'buy me lady drink' they could join in a bit of banter as good as the English lads sat around. Brilliant bar can't wait to see them again

  Review from Pattaya Secrets, Jan 2009: Eternal Welcome

Good girls and lots of good music. The owner still comes over and says hello every time I go back whether it 6 months a year or 18 months, never ever forgets you.

  March 2006:

My fave bar is the 5 Star, Beach Rd and soi 10 by Mikes Shopping Mall. Friendly girls, great sound system, and one of the best views. Mama is always cooking something to feed you and she will ring the bell.

  January 2006:

A popular bar at the end of the walk along the Beach Road street market stalls. Before the starting on the return leg one can partake in a reasonably priced drink.

The bar seems to have connections with the US military and also with bikers. The mementos and photos and the walls demonstrate this affiliation.

Golden Time Bar

Pattaya Soi 8

 Golden Time Bar

My favourite beer bar. Aircon bar with soft drinks at 50 Baht and bottled beer from 50 Baht for Tiger and Chang. Lady drinks 95 Baht.

 Review July 2008: Air Con on Soi 8

Golden Time neonGolden Time Bar has become a stylish enclosed bar complete with air con.

The benefits seem many. Firstly the aircon is much appreciated by this particular reviewer. Secondly the enclosure keeps out the competing sound systems, (notably the noisy Family Best Bar opposite). Thirdly the enclosure keeps out the street hawkers who can be very annoying indeed on Soi 8.

The new bar is well designed with an outside entrance area for the smokers. There is bench seating for those that prefer, but of course plenty of traditional stools.

There's dancing poles for the girls but there is not a continuous coyote show.

And of course the bar still has its internal loo which is always a plus.

Perhaps best of all, good bars attract good custom which in turn attracts pretty girls. There were 3 or 4 that would otherwise escape to the better Pattaya gogos. I particular loved the girl that could puff out her chest as if a cartoon version of Marilyn Monroe.

  News July 2008: Re-Developed

The Golden Time beer bar has re-opened after a fancy looking redevelopment. It looks to have taken a bit of inspiration from the recent Party Bar re-modelling.

  Review April 2006: More Golden Times

Golden TimeThe lively owner and manageress, Fon (pictured centre),  seems to put more effort into welcoming the customers than most nearby bars. The bar is always popular as a result.

Golden Time has now expanded into the next door bar which was always relatively quiet.

One of the features of the Golden Time is the chrome pole which is used for occasional dancing and also for a climbing challenge. The fit and athletic are invited to climb the poll and write their name on the ceiling. I am sure there are suitable rewards for success and penalties for failure.

  Review by Lindsay, Aug 2007: Happiness is a Cold Towel

On my last trip to Pattaya I drank most days (during the afternoon) at Happiness Star bar in Soi 7. Having stopped originally just for a quick beer the staff were very friendly and not at all pushy just ensured that I had a good time.

On my daily return they remembered my name and continued with their friendly attitude. Several could speak good English which helped.

The beer was cold, the prices friendly and I noticed that they were the only bar that offered me cold face towel this trip. Last year and prior years most bars the towel was the first thing offered after you had ordered a drink. Maybe times are tough for the bar business and cost saving policies are in place. Hope happiness Star bar keeps the good work up.

Hard Rock Cafe

Hard Rock Cafe

Beach Road 429 Moo 9
(south of Soi 6)

 Hard Rock Cafe

Bar and Restaurant with dancing. Opened a bar called Soul Lounge in February 2012.

Be aware that beers, apart from Singha, are simply extortion. 330 Baht for a small bottle of Heineken was reported in November 2007.

  From Hard Rock Cafe, April 2012: Powerjam

The new house band at the Hard Rock Cafe is Powerjam. They are a 6 piece band from the Philippines that have been performing since 1996.

  Prices from Pattaya Secrets, Dec 2006: Extortionate Beer

A bottle of Heineken is 280 baht - even more expensive than a Bacardi Breezer at 200 baht. When I questioned the Manager about the price she claimed the inflated beer price was for the 'excellent' live music one can experience in their establishment. If you are ordering a beer in Hard Rock, stick to the Singha which is priced at 130 baht

  Review Nov 2003: Recommended

This has been my local bar in Pattaya for a few years. A great bar to meet up with friends old and new. It's in the middle of Soi 7 and run by John, a great bloke from England. He has some stunning girls working there and it's always busy. Not one of those beer bars where nothing ever happens and you sit there bored senseless with mind numbing bar games.

I go in regularly to start off with a few no hassle looseners before hitting the strip.

Recommended!

  From Pattaya Pages, July 2007: Comfortable

If you would like a comfortable bar to escape the madness of soi 8 I find ILE a Finnish bar across from the Sunshine hotel a perfect place to relax. The padded couches surrounded by fans keeping one cool is perfect for taking a well deserved timeout. The service girls are friendly and never hassle. Sometimes I just like to sit there watching the world go by chowing down a kebab purchased nearby.

The been has been renamed "Mac's" and shows the Belgian, Welsh, Aussie and Thai flags on the 2 signs.

The bar still welcomes our Belgian and Dutch visitors and expats alike, but as a Welsh man who lived in Australia for 25 years I welcome everyone who comes to our bar.

Still one of the few beer bars in Soi 7 or Soi 8 with glass front doors and air conditioning, so a cool place in the hot weather.

We also now have a large LCD TV and Platinum UBC for all the football, golf, etc.

  From Pattaya Secrets, September 2009: Singing the praise

I just thought I would take the time and trouble to sing the praises of a small beer bar on soi 7. Did we have some fun with Na, the owner/manager and her lovely girls.

The drinks were flowing, the girls were dancing and they weren't shy, not in the slightest.

I would recommend to anyone whose looking for an inexpensive good night out surrounded with really fun, attractive girls.

  From Pattaya Talk, May 2008: Bin Bollox

 New Malibu Show Bar

Beer bar with restaurant and cabaret (miming lady boys and girls) Took over from Malibu Bar in September 2014.

  Review from Dick Farang, September 2014:

Beyond (previously Malibu), the transvestite show bar on the corner of Second Road and Soi Post Office (Soi 13/2) opposite Bodega Bar, has been dark last week and some refurbishing is going on.

There is a new sign: The New Malibu Show.

On Sunday evening 21 st September 2014 the activities had resumed.

Many Thai girls like their impersonations.

At my last visit a short fatty, who had come with two farangs, was having a good time.

She went on stage to dance with the transvestites, started to get very familiar and finally lifted the dresses of the performers to check the goodies.

Note that it can get hot there because there is no air conditioning and the fans are not much help.

Bottled Heineken 85 baht (show included).

I visited the Nice Bar Soi 8 during my trip 2006. The prices were very reasonable and the girls chatty and not pushy. The owner or mamasun was celebrating her sons birthday and he cut his cake while I was there and I was offered a piece. By then I felt like one of the family and my whole visit to the bar was relaxing and enjoyable. I recommend a visit to anyone strolling in Soi 8

There are three bars together and they are a very friendly lot in all. I use the Passport a bit as a start or end of evening bar. The girls are a mixed bag like most bars some good some well but they are great fun and are not to pushy for drinks and bar fines. The normal games are played and also has a few pool tables which are very good for Pattaya. The WC is clean and FREE. They have live music which is a relief from my normal watering holes on Soi7/8.The band play a wide range of stuff and one can still hear yourself speak when they are playing. All in all a good bar to start or end the night

 Review from Thai Visa Dec 2008: Fish & Chips

I like it a lot but it is 50/50 sometimes good, sometimes not, by good I mean the fish and chips cooked nicely, more fish than batter, not too greasy, the tartar sauce is always lovely. I would settle for the Pig but am annoyed about how unpredictable they are.

 Review from Pattaya Talk May 2007: Fish & Chips

The best falang food in Pattaya. Fish, chips and mushy pea's being my number 1. Enough said.

 Review April 2007: Unwelcoming

The restaurant was busy, not full. The welcome girl suggested a crappy table by the door and I suggested that I would prefer somewhere else. She decided the restaurant was full and showed me to the door. Never again.

  Review from Pattaya Secrets March 2006: Refreshing Pint

I love to start the day here where I can be assured of a nice refreshing pint.

The pub is very comfortable, and I like to sit by the window, and do a spot of people-watching, or sit near a TV screen and watch a few music videos or read the sport in the Bangkok Post.

The food in my experience, is always good . Full English breakfast , highly recommended. While most Farangs seem to order Fish and Chips, steak and so on, I've enjoyed many great Thai meals here , Green Chicken Curry, Stir fry Thai noodle with Pork, all good stuff, fresh, tasty, and cheap.

Girls (staff) wear cute little blue dresses too, nice and short!

A pint of Guinness is 160 Baht

  November 2005: Comfortable

Pig N Whistle is good, they have comfortable seats and a nice decor.

Noted for week in week out reliability. Around Bt189 for beef or pork and another Bt100 or so for lamb. Note that it's not carvery

November 2005:

AT the early hour of 8pm the bar seemed well stocked with pretty girls. Presumably they will get depleted rapidly as the night rolls on.

Possibly the 'Premier' is a reference to the Premier League, particularly as the bar was showing an Everton match when I visited. I have a feeling that any fan would prefer to listen to the commentary though, which was pretty nigh on impossible. A band playing Shadows numbers seemed to be top of the cacophony table.

  Review from Lindsay, June 2008: Off Day

We went there for lunch last year 2007. The waitress was rude to my wife, the pork roast I could have repaired my shoes with the rubbish and we were the only customers there at the time and I’m not surprised if what we were served up with is the norm.

Maybe it was our turn to have their bad experience or it was an off day but the place isn’t cheap. I’m in the industry and I don’t bother to complain, I just don’t go back however after having great meals at Secrets and the French restaurant towards the end of Walking Street Le Notte, and Sailors Bar in Soi 8 what a disappointment.

Rosie’s promotes themselves as a traditional English, Continental and Thai food establishment so maybe they are not training their staff to cover such a range of fare. Or as I said maybe it was an off day.

  2006:

I had the fish & chips special and it was very good, at least for us American guys.

A highly regarded restaurant next door to the Pig & Whistle. Has received several nominations for best roast dinner in Pattaya

  Review from Andrew, January 2012: Go Easy on the Mai Tai

I'm in the oil game, 4 on, 4 off, guess where I spend my 4 off ?

I've been using the Sailor Bar Soi 8, must be coming on 4 years. Its got to be one of the cheapest bars in Pattaya. There is a little restaurant at the back I use it a lot, especially if I am entertaining a little Thai number.

There are some girls that are very nice, I suppose beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I usually drink in here as my first stop of the night, great meet place, its handy for Soi 7/8 and Walking Street.

The beer is cheap, but I'm a big fan of the cocktails, the Mia Tia is well recommended.

The Mamasam is a big bird that never smiles, the same as a lot of the staff.

But on the plus side, if you want cheap drink, and cheap acceptable food, this is the place to be.

Oh big word of warning, go easy on the Mai Tai, 2 max or you will be having an early bed and waking up the next morning saying, WHAT HAPPENED DARLING... So you've been warned...

  Review from Pattaya Secrets. June 2008: A Daytime Place

I went there everyday on my last visit and loved the place. there's some really great bar girls there and the booze is really cheap!

  Review from Pattaya Addicts. June 2008: Cheapest?

Bottle beer 40-45 Baht. Soft drinks 20, Thai whiskey 20, farang spirits 55-65, wine 50.

  Review from Pattaya Secrets. Nov 2007: Cheap

Some of the cheapest drinks in Pattaya and particularly noted as an afternoon bar. The food is noted as good value also.

The girls were less noteworthy though as comments ranged from 'no smiles', to 'no go'. But as expected there are a few hansum men who found otherwise

  Review from Pattaya Addicts, June 2007: Favourite

When just relaxing and not in major hunting mode I like the Sailor Bar on Soi 8. Cheap drinks all day - beers 40 -45 baht, all other drinks and cocktails no more than 60-65 baht. Food pretty good. The odd looker or 2 working there. No hustle or hassle.

  Review from Pattaya Chat, May 2006: Sanuck

I've tended to use "We are the World Bar" as somewhere to go with a girl on the way back to hotel, the live music does make a big difference and I think that it is that that attracts many.

The beer is also fairly cheap and it's a very laid back and friendly place; I've had much sanuck with the staff there. You don't get much hassles for lady drinks either but company is immediately available if you want it.

Can also get food right outside from the passing Beach Road travelling caterers and the staff don't mind you eating in the bar, though it's even better to share some with them

  December 2005:

Cheap beer and some decent looking girls at night. The daytime crew leaves a bit to be desired in the looks department, but sanuk mak at night.

  November 2005:

Managed by Tian. He also runs the Eagle Bar, the World Wide A GoGo and the World Wide Bar.

A nice bar to take a Thai girl as they love to watch rather than just listen and the music there is not bad, with 3 good singers.

Gay/Thai/Karaoke bars are not listed due to a lack of expertise in those areas. Gogo bars are listed on a separate page. I have added food reviews but this is not a comprehensive service. I will only list eateries where people have submitted comments

The following reviews are those that I come across on the web, in guide books, from contributors and of course from my own visits. Reviewers may be unreasonably harsh and bar owners may present a rosy picture of their bars...so don't take everything at face value...go and see for yourself. Click on the street name to obtain a map of the bar area.

And a couple of words of warning:

  • In short time rooms...keep an eye on your wallet to ensure that it stays with you long time.

  • To those with Thai wives, be aware of the motor cycle taxi network used to keep tabs on errant husbands.

If anyone would like to add a review or information please email Dave at webmaster@pattayagogos.com
