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.

Short time bar

  Review from Dick Farang, June 2014: Much is Possible

On Soi Khao Noi opposite Soi Khao Noi Soi 9 is Angel Bar Beer.

It is a rather small and rather dark bar and much is possible there, such as public blowjobs.

The girls are in the 30-40 year age bracket, active and experienced.

Barfine (ST room included) is 300 baht.

Bottled Heineken was 75 baht.

aqua deymie dusk

Aqua Deymie

Soi Neun Pleub Wan
Soi Banlang Soi 12 (right fork of Soi Nern Plab Wahn Soi 47)

 Aqua Deymie

Another bar established by the people that brought you the noted Dao Bar. Complete with swimming pool. The pool is overlooked so maybe not for the naughty stuff.

 Review from Dick Farang, April 2014: Water adverse

Yesterday I visited Aqua Deymie.

As usual most girls (some young spinners there) were sitting inside and not keen on using the outdoor swimming pool.

At the back are several ST rooms.

Bottled Heineken 85 baht.

Lady drink (also bottled beer) 120 baht.

ST bar fine (including room) 300 baht,

Belgian beers (Kwak, Orval, Kasteel, etc.) over 200 baht.

Exact location of Aqua Deymie is Soi Banlang Soi 12 (right fork of Soi Nern Plab Wahn Soi 47).

  Note from Dick Farang, April 2014: Belgian beer

The next best selection of Belgian beers after Mai Lu Si in Soi Buakhao is at Aqua Deymie on the Dark Side, which has a fridge with a transparent door for them.

Aqua Deymie seems to be owned by a French language Belgian, Alan. There are family connections to Blu Cat Bar.

  Comment from Pattaya-Live, June 2013: Thumbs Up

Counted 11 girls, only 2 playing with their phones. A couple of customers, nice atmosphere, thumbs up

  Review from Billy Baht, January 2013: Good and Bad

Very nice bar, well appointed, clean and air conditioned.

My visit was around 8 pm and I was promptly waited on and received a cold San Mig Lite at a very reasonable 59 baht.

I ordered another beer and the girl asked me for a lady drink. I politely declined and she sapped Pai leury keeneoaw! Get out cheap charlie! I pretended not to notice and ignored her. Another girl came over I bought her a lady drink and was tempted to take her short time, but truth be told, the comments from the little bitch put me off, so I check binned and left.

Pity management has spent so much to equip a very nicely laid out bar but then allow some girls to abuse customers.

  News June 2012: Late Happy Hour

The bar has bottled beer at 39 Baht and lady drinks at 69 Baht from 8pm until close. However the lady drink offer is limited to sniff of beer. A more substantial lady drink is 120 Baht. Barfines are 500 Baht LT, 300 Baht ST.

  Review from Pattaya Secrets, August 2010: Nice lookers

Good decor and good pizza. and the 15 girls are the best looking on the dark side.

  Review from Pattaya Secrets, March 2010: Nice lookers

Plenty of girls some real nice lookers. The place is done out very well.

Balloon Bar

Soi Khao Talo

 Balloon Bar

Beer bar noted in June 2014

bamboo dark side

Bamboo Bar

Soi Boonsampan (Soi Kao Noi)

 Bamboo Bar

Bar and beergarden. Last noted in September 2014.

  Review from Dick Farang, September 2014: Half open bar

Bamboo Bar is the last bar on the right-hand side of Soi Khao Noi before the junction with Soi Khao Talo when coming from Sukhumvit Road.

It is a German owned slightly worn half-open bar with a private car park in green scenery.

At my previous visits I have only seen oldies there, but this time I was greeted by a 22-year-old girl, O from Lopburi.

At first she was very shy and even wanted to switch off the light. Later on she told she had two daughters of three and five years and she showed she could still squeeze some drops of milk from her nipples.

In the past I have been told that the current owner pays the girls a salary of 2,000 baht a month, whereas the former owner paid nothing at all (apart from lodging, tips and shares of lady drinks and barfines), what made the girls virtually freelancers.

Barfine (room included) 300 baht.

Bottled Heineken 70 baht.

  Comments by FG, Sep 2007: Create Your Own Fun

Parking – Open-air Bar – Garden-tables - all is well looked after and making a comfortable stay with accommodating service (girls). A/C rooms and shower across corridor are all excellent and spacey – marble flooring.

European owned, managed by Thai consort. Definitively positive in every aspect – pricing appropriate. Excellent and discretely piped in music from the sixties to the nineties. Fun, entertaining from midi to mid-night. This is the place where you create your own fun and luck!

Banana Bar

Soi Khao Noi
(near Sukhumvit Road)

 Banana Bar

The Barking Frog

Soi Siam Country Club
(the very last bar at the eastside of Mabprachan Lake)

 The Barking Frog

Beer bar and restaurant.

  Review from Dick Farang, August 2014: The Last Bar

The Barking Frog is the very last bar at the eastside of Mabprachan Lake, off Soi Siam Country Club.

The nearest bar further on, if you continue some five kilometres along the northern side of Mabprachan Lake, is the White Oyster Bar.

When I arrived some Thai men were drinking Thai spirits and soda outside and some Thai children were playing. I found this rather disturbing, but after this expedition to the Dark Side's Ushuaia, I urgently needed a pit stop.

The Barking Frog is a rather primitive building with a bar area at the left side and a restaurant or rather a snack bar at the right side.

Inside the bar were a forty year old girl who was friendly enough and three younger lazy McDonald's creatures. As is popular at the Dark Side, they were playing music from YouTube.

For those interested: barfine 300 baht, no ST rooms.

Bottled Heineken 80 baht.

Bee Bar

New in 2010. Still going in 2014. The bar didn't impress an early customer who got a stream of abuse after pointing out a small overcharge. But otherwise clean and offer very cheap drinks, no girls though.

The Bird Cage

Soi Khao Talo
(lower end of Soi Khao Talo across from Soi 18)

 The Bird Cage

Beer bar, still going in September 2014.

  Review from jj, May 2011: 

Bird Cage thankfully did not follow the lead of the movie of the same name. All 7 of the staff seemed to be the real thing although one was questionable.

Newly open in April 2011, not much happening as yet. Has seating for only about 10 punters at bar and two tables. Pool table takes up most of the floor space. Should consider putting a sofa against the back wall.

Ladies were friendly (LD 80 baht) if a bit over the hill. Of course, often with age comes experience but hopefully not boredom. The two gals playing pool were totally inept so it seems that a punter could make a few points if he knows his way around a table.

Discreet location could be a plus as soon as they find their niche. Off road parking in rear. ST room(s) upstairs.

Birdy Bar

Soi Sian Country Club

 Birdy Bar

Now closed

Black Angels Bar

Soi Nern Plab Wahn Soi 31 (Soi Lablae)

 Black Angels Bar

Shophouse bar

  Review from Dick Farang, August 2014: Minimalistic

On the left-hand side of Soi Lablae (aka Soi Nern Plab Wahn Soi 31, etc.) when coming from Soi Nern Plab Wahn, halfway between Soi Nern Plab Wahn and Top Cool Retreat, is Black Angels Bar.

It is a very minimalistic single-shophouse bar owned by a Thai lady and her Thai husband.

There were two girls: a 20-year old one who had worked at Joy Joy Bar on Soi Siam Country Club and a 30-year old very shy and probably farm-fresh one. The older one looked better than the younger one but the language barrier and the shyness were insurmountable.

Barfine 300 baht, no ST rooms. I was told a room at the 24 Hr motel next to Ying Bar was 280 baht.

Bottled Heineken 60 baht.

Black Bush Bar

Sukhumvit: Soi Nern Plab Wern (eastwards from junction near opposite Pattaya Klang)

 Black Bush Bar

Beer bar noted in September 2014

  Review from Pattaya Secrets, May 2006: Cheap Booze

On left hand side opposite Family Mart. Small "local" bar, cheapest booze around. A place to wind down with a couple to start an evening. Not the place if you are horny...

Black Hole

Soi Pattanakan
(Connecting Soi Nernplabwan and Soi Kao Talo about 3.5lm from Sukhumvit).

 Black Hole

Took over from Titty Twister in 2012. Not really a girls bar but does have a couple of waitresses. Still going in September 2014.

Black Pearl Bar

Black Pearl 2 Bar

black sheep


The Black Sheep

Soi Khao Noi
(eastern end)

 The Black Sheep

New Zealand owned bar. New for 2009. Changed hands in mid 2012.

Free pool table and bottled beers around the 50-60 mark. Plenty of girls most days and can be fun in the bar.

  Review from Dick Farang, August 2014: Sporadically ST

The Black Sheep is the last bar on the left hand side of Soi Khao Noi before the entry gate of Wat Bunyasamphan when coming from Sukhumvit Road.

Before I had never seen interesting or interested girls there, but this time there was a threeholer, Mam, who had worked at German owned Ying Bar on Soi Lablae off Soi Nern Plab Wahn. She was 35 years old and not particularly beautiful and had her back full of Buddhist tattoos, but she knew how to deliver the goodies and seemed to really enjoy her job.

Barfine (including the ST room) was 300 baht.

The ST room on the first floor was very spacious with also a sofa in it; the bathroom was separate. I think there was another ST room on the second floor, but as at most bars at the Dark Side ST rooms seem to be used only very sporadically.

I think that most punters only come for drinking beer and playing pool.

Bottled Heineken was 50 baht (happy hour).

  Note March 2014: Evenings only

The bar seems to be lacking any girls in the afternoon

  Review from jj, April 2013: The Exception to the Rule

Just before Songkran, the Darkside seemed to be suffering a slowdown with many ladies returning home for the festival.

The exception was BLACK SHEEP on Soi Khao Noi. There seemed to be a full complement of ladies and they were working hard to please the steady stream of customers.

Word must be passing about that this is the place to be in these pre-Songkran days. A tip of the hat to the ladies there.

  News from inpattayanow.com March 2013: Back to Business

Some while ago a sale had been agreed but it dropped through with courts getting involved. The upshot is that Black Sheep is now back in the possession of the original Kiwi owner, Paul.

The bar has been completely refurbished and an entirely new staff has been employed. Business has apparently been brisk since then.

  News from John, July 2012: Not Happy

The bar has just changed hands, everything was great till I got the check bin and they had overcharged me. I pointed this out in a good way. It took three attempts to get it corrected and I didn't even hear an apology.

I have been there many times in the past and 4 times this month I left the usual 20 baht tip, not happy, I sat with two ladies who I bought two drinks each. I gave them 100 baht tip to share and they weren't happy either. I will go somewhere else.

  News June 2012: Closed due to a legal dispute

The girls have moved to Kik bar

Blue Cat Bar

Soi Khao Talo
(Sukhumvit Road end)

 Blue Cat Bar

New bar for 2012. Ownership connections with Papagayo. Barfines 300 ST, 500 LT. Beers are 70 Baht and lady drinks are 100 Baht. Seems to be building up the customers in 2013. Still going in September 2014. Blue Cat Bar became Pacha in October 2014.

  News from Ishi, October 2014: Now Pacha

Blue Cat Bar became Pacha in October 2014.

  Review from Dick Farang, October 2014: Beware

BEWARE: Last time I visited Blue Cat Bar on Soi Khao Talo Soi 9 there were only ladyboys inside, with the exception of the cashier that is.

I will never understand the rationale behind creating confusion by hiring girls and transvestites at the same bar (such as their neighbours KiK and USABAR also do) or gogo (such as Miami A-GoGo on Soi Post Office and We Are No 1 A-GoGo in Jomtien).

Bottled Heineken 80 baht.

Blue Moose

 Blue Moose

Beer bar with non-takeway girls. Nicely kitted out, good aircon and seems to be a meeting bar for golfers. Still going in September 2014.

The Booze Lounge

Soi Khao Talo
(1km from Sukhumvit)

1pm-1am

boozeloungepattaya.com

 The Booze Lounge

Aircon bar and gentlemen's club. New in summer 2013.

  Review from Dick Farang, July 2014: The Booze Flooze

On the Dark Side Booze Lounge is located on the left hand side of Soi Khao Talo when coming from Sukhumvit Road, between the main entrance and the secondary entrance of Eakmongkon Project 4, more or less opposite Soi 12.

In fact this double shophouse is a part of the latest development of Eakmongkon Project 4 along Soi Khao Talo.

It is a nice kind of gentlemen's club with a black-and-white Laurel and Hardy/Charlie Chaplin theme.

(Earlier this year Booze Lounge opened a subsidiary on Soi Buakhaow and they also appear to be linked to Oscars on Soi LK Metro.)

Most girls used to be rather chubby in not very inspiring black-and white dresses, but now they also have some good-looking girls in black-and-white striped bikinis.

One of those bikini girls, Rosi from Surin, is 28 years old, tall (over 1.70 metre) and slim with a very minimal bosom. She was a real sweetheart and told me that she started working at the Booze Lounge one month ago and that she had been a cashier (not going with customers) at Angel Bar Beer on Soi Khao Noi, which she found too raunchy.

The price of the en suite ST rooms (barfine included) was 350 baht for one hour.

In fact these are bedrooms for the live-in girls and in a rather deplorable state for being less than five years old; no light in the bathroom.

Bottled Heineken 85 baht.

I picked up a leaflet for a Booze Cruise. I wonder if this is going to pan out well because some years ago Sapphire Club on Soi 15 off Walking Street organised a girlie cruise and had to cancel it because of trouble with police.

  Prices, August 2013: Heineken

Heineken was reported to be 79 Baht a bottle with no Happy Hour deals.

  Note from Pattaya-Live, June 2013:

Drinks are reasonable with a Leo low life at 49b and only 40b during happy hour 1 till 6pm. About a dozen girls most of them lookers. 350 for ST room including barfine. 500 Baht takeout.

Brasillia

The Brass Monkey

Soi Nernplubwan

brassmonkeypattaya.com

 The Brass Monkey

New for 2013.

  Review from Dick Farang, May 2014: Not Cold Enough

Explored during the heat of the day due to curfew.

The Brass Monkey is a rather spacious bar on Soi Nern Plab Wahn, about 100 metres before the Riverside Bar, also at the right hand side when coming from Sukhumvit Road.

It is owned by a Dutchman from Amsterdam, Jack.

They also sell Dutch and Indonesian snacks, such as gehaktbal and bamischijf.

The bar seems to be popular with Dutch and Belgian expats.

Bottled Heineken was 75 baht.

(I got one extra beer on the house because the owner thought the beer was not cold enough, but for me it was OK.)

There was only one girl who could catch my fancy, but she completely ignored me ... until I left.

Butterfly Bar sign

Butterfly Bar

60/12 Siam Country Club Road (8km from turn off from Suhkumvit)

1pm-8pm

Free buffet on Tuesdays

 Butterfly Bar

Short time bar

  Review from Dick Farang August 2014: Intimate corners

Despite some rumours on internet forums Butterfly Bar at the Dark Side is still open, albeit very quiet.

Butterfly Bar is located in a narrow alley marked by a butterfly sign on the right-hand side of Soi Siam Country Club when coming from Sukhumvit Road, about 200 metres beyond the crossing at Soi 22 with the traffic lights with the double-digit counter.

In the alley there is a large car park on the left-hand side, shortly before the bar on the right-hand side.

It is very dark inside and it takes a while for your eyes to adjust.

The bar has some intimate corners.

There were some eight girls, some of them end thirty or older and some younger ones carrying overweight.

I was the only customer.

One of the older ones confessed she smokes a couple of times a month, but complained she gets shagged less than once a month.

Barfine (ST room included) 220 baht (like the voltage, no mistake).

The ST rooms are in a building opposite the bar.

Bottled Heineken 80 baht, lady drink 80 baht.

  Notes May 2013: Fading

There seem few admirers in a recent forum discussion. Lack of attractive ladies. Still an occasional nice lady though.

  Review from Pattaya-Live, Sept 2008: Best on the Dark Side

At current state of affairs, the best bar on the Dark Side(Girly wise), by some distance too. Long and very dark bar (all indoors i.e. aircon). No special effects, as the place is predominantly short time haven.

24 girls currently on the books with some real cuties.

Decent enough music and great fun to be had.

  Review from OutForABeer, May 2007: Doesn't Care

Butterfly always seems to change. Some days the staff seems happy, other days not. I have been the only customer in the bar and barely got a hello.

Decent music and aircon. Clean rooms available.

The bar needs to advertise a bit, you get the feeling the owner doesn't care whether or not he is breaking any records for business

  Review from Pattaya Secrets, June 2006: Bamboo Telegraph

Nothing like it use to be. The recent closing of Siam golf club for renovations has hurt it...but worse is what happened about 3-years ago:

A number of golfers (locals) would stop at the Butterfly for drinks and a short time after playing a round. Then, they went home to their Thai wives. One of the wives found out about the Butterfly, via the 'bamboo telegraph' and contacted some of the other wives. They met and decided that the next time the husbands went golfing at Siam, they would go to the Butterfly and wait for them to arrive after their game. In short, the golfers arrived...and...well the shit hit the fan. Word spread and few golfers in relationships would venture to the Butterfly!

Casual

Soi Khao Noi

 Casual

Beer bar new for 2014

  Review from Dick Farang: Casually Shy

Casual is on the left-hand side of Soi Khao Noi when coming from Sukhumvit Road.

It is opposite Boutique Resort (whatever that may be) and about 200 metres before The Black Sheep.

It is a modest bar-restaurant serving pub grub with a small food shop, not really a girlie bar.

Although the staff are very friendly, they are also very shy and probably not barfineable.

Bottled Heineken 60 baht.

Chill Bar

Soi Nernplubwan
(Corner Soi 43)

 Chill Bar

Beer bar

  Review from Pattaya Secrets, Sep 2007: Aussie Run

Friendly Aussie run place. A couple of seating pagodas in the front garden, plus seating by the front bar with sensible seat sizes.

There is an outside bar area and an inside aircon area with a brand new Pool/snooker table.

Drinks reasonable at 60 Baht for San Mig Lite for example. Chang 45 Baht , GinTonic 80 Baht , lady drink 90 Baht .

Short time bar. Confirmed in September 2014.

  Comment from Pattaya-Live, June 2010: Thumbs Up

More than 10 customers, many girls in taking care mode, none on the phone. Another thumb up.

  Review from Nightmarch at pattaya-times.com, June 2010: Reasonably priced

On my most recent exploratory excursion there were about 10 ladies of varying ages, looks and demeanour ready to help customers relieve themselves of any pent-up emotion. Drinks are reasonably priced and vary between 50 baht for soft drinks and only 70 baht for lady drinks.

  Review from Pattaya-Live, Sept 2008: Back on Track

After 5 months in the doldrums when smoking was banned - the place is back on track. Not yet back to the hay days of mid 07, but its definitely coming around.

A couple of new birds, a few of the good old ones and Mon the eternal cashier - all know how to have good times. Girls are usually at least half pissed, and happy to serve. Decent fodder from the restaurant (Pizzas recommended) . Music is PROPER SHYTE though. Same old songs, repeated endlessly. ST rooms available.

  Review from Pattaya Addicts, Aug 2007: Great Joint

For me The Dao bar on the darkside is a great joint at the moment, 15-20 girls, opens about 1pm till midnight, ST rooms available and Heineken only 60 baht a bottle, this bar is a bit similar to the inside of the Jade House is probably best way to explain it for those of you who haven't been there.

  Review from Andrew, Dec 2006: Cafe Rates

Last visited this month (December). The ST barfine IS still 250 but its a room hire rather than a BF as the girl will remain in the bar after the deed.

The previous poster was either diddled (with lol) or paid the LT rate but I can't confirm what that is.

7 or 8 girls in attendance all nice looking with at least 2 being exceptional.

Darkness Beer Bar

Sukhumvit: Soi Khao Noi (400m east of Sukhumvit)

 Darkness Beer Bar

Opened in December 2011. Previously Noi's Beer Bar. Became Saxo Bar in April 2014

At opening Sangsom Coke was 50 Baht, Lady drinks 90 Baht and barfine 300. Half a dozen girls on hand. But reports suggest that the girls don't seem very friendly.

The Dive

Sukhumvit: Soi Khao Noi (400m east of Sukhumvit)

 The Dive

Previously Nobby's. Nothing interesting noted in April 2014.

  Review by Dick Farang, October 2014:

When I entered The Dive on Soi Khao Noi four fatties where eating on the terrace. Of those four one was the wife of the English owner and one was the cashier.

Not a place to spend much time and money.

Barfine is 400 baht for ST and for LT; when ST the room is included.

Bottled Heineken 75 baht.

 The Duke's Lounge

Golden Gate became Duke's Lounge in September 2014.

  Review from Dick Farang, October 2014: Lounge Prices

On the right-hand side of Soi Khao Noi Soi 9 the Dukes Lounge Bar has opened at the venue that used to be Golden Gate Bar.

They have a car park opposite New Bar.

Next to the entrance a Thai guard with a cap was sitting, a very unusual sight at the Dark Side.

The main changes were an unused square stage with chrome handrails in the middle of the bar space and the presence of ST rooms.

The girls were not very young and not precisely top models.

The best looking one of the bunch, who was 38 years old, "tried harder" (think Avis) and stripped almost completely for a couple of 20-baht notes.

Barfines 300 baht ST (room included).

Bottled Heineken 85 baht ("lounge prices" ?).

  Review from Dick Farang, April 2014: A Strange Mood

Not far from Aqua Deymie is French owned hotel and bar, Fabrice.

At this bar I always feel in a strange mood. Most girls are in their thirties and the younger ones completely ignore older punters. The bar is rather spacious and the girls are walking in and out all the time leaving an empty feel.

Fabrice is located on Soi Banlang (aka Soi Siam Country Club Soi 18 and Soi Phon Prapha Nimit Soi 18.

Nicely decked new and spacious bar. New pool table. 8-10 girls with a couple of nice ones.

I guess the place needs some time to pick up some regulars, but it has a chance. Owner must be very hot blooded as the Aircons are all industrial size, and the place is freezing.

Golden Gate Bar has changed its name to Dukes Lounge; I am curious if it will be any better.

  Comment from Dick Farang, April 2014: Not so friendly

Girls of Golden Gate on Soi Khao Noi Soi 9 are very unfriendly and do not go with customers; there are no rooms either.

  Review from jj, April 2013: Not enough maidens and too many extra balls

If one were playing Cricket, this bar is a major loser.

Wicket 1: half the staff are katoeys.

Wicket 2: the other half are less than friendly. .

Wicket 3: Drinks are over priced

Wicket 4: Charge 20 baht per game of pool w/o notice.

MAJOR LOSER even for the darkside............

 Happy Moon's Bar

Beer bar

  Review from Dick Farang, October 2014: Not so happy staff

Happy Moon Bar is a new closed bar on the left-hand side of upper Soi Khao Talo when coming from Sukhumvit Road, just past Soi 13, the closed bar Bird Cage and the open bar Full Moon Bar and more or less opposite Soi 18.

It has a rather Spartan layout with some stools around the bar counter, a pool table and a coffee table with two small sofas.

The other customers were three older Germans and a Thai policeman.

The girls were around 30 years old and average at best.

Behind the building Happy Moon Bar shares a (muddy) car park with Bird Cage and Full Moon Bar.

If you need not fear the home front you better park your car on Soi Khao Talo.

As the girl sitting next to me said she did not like the job and wanted to quit I did not enquire about barfines and rooms.

Bottled Heineken 70 baht.

  Review from Dick Farang, June 2014: Strange Business Model

Pop, the shy non-barfineable virgin, was still there, this time being beautiful in a black dress until halfway her calves.

A 21 years old rather chunky mother of two, was wearing an also decent blue dress under which it was difficult to guess the quality of the goods.

She expected 3,000 baht ST and she would not budge to less than 1,500 baht.

Barfine was 300 baht and the room was 200 baht extra.

There was also one obligatory ladyboy (apparently a must at the Dark Side).

Bottled Heineken however was still 50 baht (happy hour ?).

  Review from Dick Farang, May 2014: Rapid review

Kayak Bar is a new bar on Soi Pattanakan = Soi Nern Plab Wahn Soi 28 = Soi Nongkraborg Soi 9.

It is between the Black Hole and Wat Kao Sao Thong Thong (at the corner at the end of Soi Khao Talo), but at the other side of the road.

It is owned by a Welshman, David.

Bottled Heineken was a modest 50 baht.

Apart from the usual furniture there was a 20 year old girl, Pop, who started one week before and was very shy, not into bedroom sports and wearing (tight) trousers.

Opened in June 2010. Verified in March 2014.

  Review from Dick Farang, October 2014: Beware

I will never understand the rationale behind creating confusion by hiring girls and transvestites at the same bar (such as their neighbours KiK and USABAR also do) or gogo (such as Miami A-GoGo on Soi Post Office and We Are No 1 A-GoGo in Jomtien).

  Note from Dick Farang, April 2014: Belgian beer

Kik Bar seems to be owned by a Belgian, Eric, who is also connected with Dao Cafe.

  Review from jj, April 2013: Lounge bar

The review below was apparently written 2-3 owners and 3-4 managers ago.

Today KIK is a shadow of its coyote days.

It's now a typical Darkside bar where the ladies lounge around until the customers come then continue to lounge around unless pressured to get off the couch.

Compared to many Darkside bars it is fairly large and well appointed with a number of comfortable and discrete couches; largely unused.

You know things are NOT going well when the lady doesn't even drink her LD; just lets the ice melt.

Seems that if you are not a chum of the Brit manager, you ain't.......

When the next owner takes over, he needs somehow to tap the potential that is not there now.

  News April 2012: Re-opened

The bar has re-opened with an emphasis on coyote dancing. There is a Wednesday party night when coyotes from Papagayo perform. BF 300 for ST incl. room, LT 500, 300 later in the evening. Lady drinks 100 Baht. Thai spirits 60 Baht.

  Note May 2011: Prices

69 Baht for a small bottled Chang. Girl quoted an unnegotiable 1500 Baht short time (+ 300 Baht for room).

  Review from Jack, June 2010: Good fun

A new bar has just opened over on the Darkside called KiK. It has been open for about a week now and is having a grand opening party on 19th June.

The new bar is owned by the same group as Dao Bar/Cafe and Papagayo.

On the couple of times that I have been there this week there were about 15 girls most of which were easy on the eye. The bar has been fitted out quite nicely and is comfortable and has good Air Con.

The drink prices are a little higher than most bars on the DarkSide, Soft Drinks 60bt, Bottled Beer 90bt Sprit with mixer 90bt and Lady Drinks 100bt. Short Time 300bt, Long Time 500bt

I have not seen the ST Rooms but the owner said they are finished to a high standard.

I have spent a couple of enjoyable evenings there with good fun being had.

 La Guinguette

Short time bar in swimming pool setting. The name seems to mean a waterside Parisian bar.

  Review from Dick Farang, October 2014: A Long Gone Era

As it was about two years ago I had visited La Guinguette (mind the spelling) I decided to pay them a visit.

La Guinguette is located on Soi 27 off Soi Siam Country Club, on the corner of sub-soi 12.

It is easy to find as there is a big sign on the corner of Soi Siam Country Club and Soi 27.

When I arrived there was not a single car or motorbike outside and also the car park at the other side of Soi 27 was empty.

I entered through the open front door, walked through the deserted garden with umbrellas and near the smallish swimming pool I found three fully clothed fatties, one of them the Thai owner, and a boring white dog.

It is no longer French owned.

In a long bygone era they had ST rooms at 300 baht (barfine included).

Bottled Heineken 80 baht.

  From Pattaya Secrets, June 2010: Lucky

There were only 4 girls working, but I was lucky that the one who greeted me at the entrance was nice enough for some company and some entertainment. Tiger 65 Baht and LDs 100 Baht. ST rooms are 300 with fan or 350 with AC, ST fee was up to you (read 500 Baht).

  From Pattaya Secrets, Jan 2007: Afternoon Best

About 3 of the 10 girls were pretty, and very hands-on playful. I felt all the girls were all tired and made a note to go back around 2.00PM when the girls are fresh!

  From Pattaya Secrets, June 2006: Maybe Next Time

Good location, out of the way. Great potential.

I went there last night and not impressed at all. The quality of girls poor. The mamason's son was wondering in and out all the time. So no fun to had with the girls. I was asked if I wanted to be entertained in the swimming pool but I declined with the quality of the girls.

I will try and get there earlier next time and see if there is any improvement.

  From Pattaya Secrets, May 2006: What a Gem

What a gem!. French owned and nestled in a big house with a private swimming pool (skinny dipping is allowed at all times...), a bar and a number of sitting areas/arrangements dotted around the place....bar stools, leather sofas, thai style Gazeebo and deck chairs around the pool....we got there quite late and a few of the girls were off entertaining but there were still 7-8 babes, some really presentable....

A perfect place for a private binge or a quiet evening of cheap booze....barfines are 200 Baht and girlies are on "dark side" level of pay ie up to you...

  Review from Dick Farang, September 2014: Bruin cafe

Lucky Time Bar is a spacious bruin café (cosy traditional Dutch style pub with snacks) owned by Alex from Maastricht (Netherlands) and his Thai wife Nid from Buriram, who has lived in the Netherlands for many years and has acquired the Dutch nationality.

It is on the right-hand side of Soi Nern Plab Wahn when coming from Sukhumvit Road, about 200 metres past the petrol station.

Although it is Dutch owned most customers appear to be British.

It is not really a place to pick up a barfine.

They have rooms at 500 baht per night.

Bottled Heineken 70 baht.

  Review from Thai Visa, March 2008: Darts and Pool Teams

The bar has Darts and Pool teams, both of which participate in the Pattaya leagues. If you are after a quiet game of pool/darts etc. and want a relaxed (no bar girl scene) friendly atmosphere in which to have a few beers (its safe to take the missus as well) then it is hard to beat.

  Review from Pattaya-Live, Jan 2008: Semi Conscious

Sure is a nice bar, friendly staff, good pool table and 50 Baht Tiger.

Cashier is a looker and loads of fun. Breakfast very good value.

Just a shame you go out out for breakfast and go home several hours later semi conscious

  Review from Alex, Aug 2007: Lucky Find

The Lucky Time Bar is a haven away from the madness of the major soi's. Owned by a Dutchman named Alex and his wife, they welcomed us and treated us as friends and not just customers they helped make me and my friends holiday

This is a family orientated bar frequented by Expats from all over the world, It is well run and the perfect place to have a relaxed drink with family or friends. The Bar is well airconditioned and has Pool/Darts and Table Football to play, the friendly girls are more than happy to thrash you at the game of your choice.

The food served is fantastic and very well priced as is the beer 60 baht for an ice cold Singha (miss it already)

The girls are a really friendly bunch and there is no nicer feeling than to come down in the morning and be greeted by your name

The Apartments are spacious and very well presented and you have both aircon and a fan all are ensuite with daily cleaning service and towel exchange and most importantly inexpensive

A previous review stated there were no short time rooms this is really not that sort of bar. You are more than welcome to take ladies back to the bar for a drink or to your room

I will definitely be stopping here again next year.

  Review from Pattaya Talk, February 2006: Nice Bar, Nice Girls

  Review from Dick Farang, October 2014: With a little imagination

Ying Bar on Soi Lablae (aka Soi Nern Plab Wahn 31, etc.) has become Mac's Bar.

It is still German owned; Mac is the name of the current owner's wife.

As to the interior not much (if anything) has changed and it is still as worn as before, but when it is empty your nose is rubbed in it much more.

They appear to offer some snacks now.

I was the only customer and their only girl inside was a 42-year-old fatty.

This venture looks like one more recipe for disaster.

Barfine (room included) is 300 baht.

Bottled Heineken is still a steep 90 baht (60 baht during happy hour from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m.).

Short time bar. Previously named Banana Bar but the name was disallowed. Girls once noted for missing items of underwear and an invite to check for yourselves.

  Review from Dick Farang, June 2014: Indoor playground

At Mango bar on Soi Khao Noi you have to ring the doorbell now and there is a good reason for it.

There were a number of more or less naked not so young fatties cavorting around.

There was also one good looking slim girl with a beautiful dress.

She appeared to be bottomless under her dress, a threeholer, a real sweetheart and in an excellent shape for her 39 years.

Similar to Paradise bar they also have a special counter behind which head can be given.

There is an indoor playground downstairs behind the bar and there is an en suite room upstairs.

Barfines: BJ counter 200 baht, ST downstairs 300 baht, ST upstairs 400 baht, LT takeaway 500 baht.

Bottled Heineken 90 baht.

  News from jj, August 2013: Time and Tonnage

I returned to Mango Bar (Soi Khao Noi) after a prolonged absence.

Former rumors about a change in ownership proved false. However, there has been a complete turnover of staff right down to and including the cashier.

Only two words are needed to describe the new group: TIME & TONNAGE!

I have NEVER seen an older or fatter group of ladies concentrated in one place since my last visit to an old-aged home! This is currently a bar in SEVERE decline and one to be avoided at all costs!

  Review from jj, March 2013: Mangled Mango

Mango Bar has undergone some tumultuous times.

Back a few months, Mango had a stable crew of hands-on ladies. Over the past 6 mos or so, there has been a steady turn-over. A large number of ladies have come and gone (quickly).

I have no inside information, but I tend to think that no one can work with the current Belgian owner/manager. I’ve seen him berate a lady in the bar in from of customers. Since he speaks neither English nor Thai with any proficiency, this was almost a comical scene.

Whereas subsequent visits in the past would be rewarded with ladies one knew; now it is a roll of the dice if she will be there on a repeat visit. In recent days, two of the stalwarts have defected to a competing Khao Noi bar.  

  Review from jj, February 2012: Over-ripe?

Returned to Mango for the first time in a while at about 3pm. Same owner, major staff turn-over. Former costuming (or lack thereof) no longer in vogue. It seems like another bar in decline.

Ladies said the bar does OK at night but days are quiet. As per most owners, when customers decline, prices go up; not outrageous, but reaching too far for a Darkside bar. Look for it on the market soon.

  Review from jj, September 2011: A Fun Bar

Mango Bar lives up to the comment above. The ladies tend to lack certain items of clothing and are more than willing to lose even more.

The arrangement of the bar with a series of internal walls allows any interaction with the ladies to be discrete. Take 2-3 out the back door to play pool at your peril; they win most of the time, but even losing can be fun when clothing is constantly being adjusted.

A fun bar with reasonable prices and very friendly ladies; definitely hands-on.

  Review from Dick Farang, September 2014: New, not so new, and old

On the right-hand side of Soi Khao Noi Soi 9, New Bar opened about half a year ago and is thus not really new anymore.

It appears to be Dutch owned.

Last time I went there three Dutchmen and the same number of chicks where sitting at the smallish bar. So I had to sit along the other wall.

To my surprise they were playing old-fashioned smartlappen (Dutch-language sentimental songs such as YouTube smartlappen), but as soon as the Dutch people left they changed to the usual YouTube fare.

The girls were in the 25-48 years age bracket and most of them at the higher side of that scale.

Bottled Heineken 70 baht.

Nid Bar is on the left-hand side of Soi Nern Plab Wahn when coming from Sukhumvit Road, more or less opposite Happy Time Bar, not to be confused with Lucky Time Bar.

It is a Thai style karaoke that also welcomes farangs.

They only have big beer bottles and offer ice cubes with the beer.

When I was hardly seated a customer showed me a white substance he tried to sell.

I decided to leave without consuming.

In my opinion a place to avoid.

On Soi Khao Noi I revisited Paradise bar.

There were 9 or 10 girls in their thirties, most of them overweight, but polite enough.

At the right side they have a counter behind which punters can get a blowjob at 200 + 500 baht.

I was told a full service in a ST room upstairs is 300 + 1,000 baht and a LT takeaway barfine 400 baht.

Bottled Heineken 70 baht.

  News June 2013: Police

The bar seems to have taken a hit from the licensing police.

  News from jj January 2013: A Change of Management

The old Paradise Bar closed on 5th of December 2012. But it is now under new management and will re-open with a party on 2nd January 2013 at 2pm. Many new ladies are promised.

Post-opening update:

The new and improved PARADISE is up to 7 ladies; looking promising.

  From Pattaya-Addicts June 2010: Fun in the Bar

5 or 6 girls available for fun in the bar but not quite top notch. Reasonably priced drinks

  From Pattaya Today: Night March, Nov 2008: Busy

Its entrance is unpre-possessing but once inside punters must surely be reminded of a standard Soi 6-like den.

It has added a pool table, but games are free for customers. While there were only seven or eight ladies working, they were a typically friendly lot of knob fondlers. Of the four places I visited, Paradise was easily the busiest in terms of bums on seats.

Soft drinks are just 30 baht and lady drinks good value at only 80 baht. Bottled amber goes off at a mere 50 baht during a 6:00 to 7:00PM happy hour.

Pat's Bar is on the right hand side of Soi Khao Talo when coming from Sukhumvit Road, near Soi 10/1, opposite the 7ELEVEN that is next to the main entrance of Eakmongkon Project 4.

It is an air-conditioned closed doors bar where much is possible: toplessness and public blowjobs. Girls appear to be unshaved.

There is a rather big terrace in front of it, but not many girls are sitting outside.

They appear to have two ST rooms. Bar fine is 300 baht, room included.

As opposed to many bars in the lower Soi Khao Talo area, most girls here seem to be eager to please and to go the last mile so to say and some are even cute.

Bottled Heineken 65 baht, lady drinks 80 baht.

  Review from Pattaya-Addicts, July 2010: Best on the Dark Side

Without a doubt the best bar on the Dark Side is Pussy Cat Club. The bar itself is very tastefully done out in white leather chairs & booths, as well as some tables & chairs. The surroundings are fabulous, the bar staff very good and the ladies are excellent.

If you buy a lady drink, the bill shows the normal drink price + 30 baht for the lady.

Customers flock to this bar because of all the good features mentioned.

  Review from Pattaya-Live, Sept 2008: Bit out of the way

Owned by a happy going Italian and his luvly wife, who are not shy throwing drinks at you.

Very large and spacious bar. Pool table and a largish sitting area. 6-8 girls, some quite tasty and 3-4 lady boys, who are performing dances on the upper balcony. Decent music and mostly busy late.

  Review from Pattaya Talk, Nov 2007: A Bunch of Time

This is a newer looking bar with some very nice ladies. I spent a bunch of time here and enjoyed the company. Reasonable prices and cold beer. If you can handle the ladyboys here (and they stayed away) this is a nice place to spend some time.

  Review from Pattaya Secrets, Sep 2007:

Italian owned bar is a double shophouse. A pool table is available, seating and decoration is simple but tasteful.

About 6 girls are currently working, some of them eyecandy. Also 2 not so beautiful katoeys working.

Gin Tonic was 90 Baht, too much for the Dark Side. No short time rooms available.

 Red Lion Pub & Restaurant

Pub & restaurant with no hostesses

  Review from Pattaya Today, April 2007:

Seating is comfortable and cosy in the forefront with a dining room to the left and a huge bar at the rear where drinkers can sit and watch the big-screen TV.

The Red Lion has a leisurely opening at 11.00 am when the full range of the pub’s breakfasts and morning snack foods can be enjoyed. The big breakfast comes with unlimited tea or coffee and doubles up on everything, i.e sausages, bacon, eggs, toast, masses of baked beans, all the works. It costs B.150 for a Fred Flintstone start to the day with a smaller one for Wilma at B.110. 

Lots of traditional English options on the menu including: sausages & mash, fish ‘n chips, scampi, and home-made fish cakes, chicken tikka masala. There’s a special kid’s menu evoking childhood memories with offerings of fish fingers, chicken nuggets or sausages with chips and beans to please the juniors. The Thai menu is huge presenting 86 dishes.

  Review from jj, May 2006: Restaurant & Pub

Not long after opening, I asked the owner (Adrian) if it was a bar that served food or a restaurant that served alcohol.

He said he had aimed for the former but seemed to have achieved the latter.

Food was quite good for a while then a change of cooks and an increase in prices ran him off my list of restaurants, ie portions and taste not up to the price.

  Review from Pattaya Secrets, May 2006: No Girlies

About 200 yards after Pattaya Hill Village, on left hand side. large English type bar. inside and outside dinner areas. Pool table. No girlies. popular with Brits who live in the Moobans around it. Food quite expensive for the location.

  Review from Pattaya-Live Oct 2009: Just a tin roof

This is a friendly place to get pissed at and free BBQ when something on. Only a few girls but nice. Just a tin roof on sticks so if it rains you get wet .

Route 69

Soi Khao Noi

 Route 69

  Review from Dick Farang, June 2014: Surprised

When I had a look once again at Route69 on Soi Khao Noi I was surprised not to be their only customer as usual.

There were about ten bikers with the wives/girlfriends of some of them.

A very ugly, very skinny and very shy girl without any English came sitting next to me.

Bottled Heineken 80 baht.

  Review from jj, December 2012: Warning Signs

Route 69 on Soi Khao Noi has a sign saying MEMBERS ONLY. Not exactly sure what that means in Thailand. But  dropped by one evening to find ONE lady working there.

Bought her a drink; ABSOLUTELY NO RESPONSE! She sat and talked; never so much as touched me!

The sign outside says TABLE DANCING; sign inside suggests the same; but NOT AVAILABLE!

THE lady says this is OLD, from before", "no one do now", but the sign remains!

WORST bar I've ever been to in Pattaya!

  News, August 2010: Restaurant

The bar seems to have dropped the girly fun and is now just a restaurant.

  Review from Pattaya Secrets, June 2010: Nicely decorated

I was pleasantly surprised. Nicely decorated bar which seems to cater for bikers. A pool table outside, 2 Vespas as decoration inside, a couple of guitars hanging on the wall. There is food available.

Beer around 65, LD 95 Baht. Unfortunately no ST rooms on the premises.

Pizza on Wednesdays and buffet on Sundays, free to regulars.

  Review from Pattaya-Live, Nov 2008: Taking Care

The bar is really nicely done out, not too many girls at the moment but the ones that were there certainly were not ugly and they were willing to take care much the same as in Soi 6.

  Review from Dick Farang, August 2014: Posh and dark

On the Dark Side I revisited the recently opened Saxo Bar on Soi Khao Noi. I am not sure if this can be called a real girlie bar.

The interior is posh and rather dark. The clumsy stools with swivel armchairs on top are not as comfortable as they look at first sight.

I saw two ladyboys and five females, one of them apparently the owner/mamasan and another one the cashier.

Half of them were hiding behind the bar and half of them were sitting outside, although the scarce customers were inside.

I also noticed a promotion Best of Belgium for Stella Artois and some of their other factory products. However, money can buy you real Belgian beers, even in Thailand.

Bottled Heineken 85 baht, during happy hour 49 baht, lady drink 99 baht.

  Review from Dick Farang, April 2014: Refurbished

Saxo Bar & Pub has opened on Soi Khao Noi at the location of the former Darkness and Noi Noi.

The ground floor has been completely refurbished.

The only other customer inside was Niels Colov.

Two older girls and one ladyboy stayed outside all the time, so no tip from me.

Saxo Bar & Pub is owned by the same people as Aqua Deymie.

Bottled Heineken 85 baht.

Beer bar

  Review by Dick Farang, October 2014: New Star

Star Bar is a single-shophouse bar on the left-hand side of Soi Khao Talo, halfway between the Booze Lounge and Mini Bar and opposite the old market.

The British owner insists on playing music of the customer's choice.

The seating inside around the pool table is rather cramped.

When I arrived there were a fat girl, a new 18-year old girl and a chubby, but funny and available cashier.

The young girl who had started the same day was shy and not into bedroom sports at all. She was completely unshaven and did not look like Pattaya material and I think she will be back on her way to her native Buriram very soon. Later on the fatty told me that girl was still a virgin, never having had sex with her Thai sweetheart.

Shortly before I left I saw a cute girl coming down the stairs with a punter.

Barfines 300 baht ST (room included).

Bottled Heineken 65 baht.

Sugar Ray is an Australian owned bar on Soi Nern Plab Wahn between Brass Monkey and Riverside.

Bar and guesthouse

  Review from Dick Farang, August 2014: Flemish Lion

On the left-hand side of Soi Nern Plab Wahn when coming from Sukhumvit Road, about a hundred metres before Pussy Cat, Supatta Café Bar & Guesthouse has opened.

It is owned by Paul from Dendermonde (Belgium) and his Thai wife Supatta (nickname Daeng).

It is rather spacious with a blue pool table and red stools and will also have rooms for rent. On the wall is a big Flemish Lion flag.

At the moment Daeng and her sister are serving and it is not clear if it will evolve into a girlie bar.

Note that Soi Nern Plab Wahn is also known as Sukhumvit Pattaya Soi 53 and Soi Map Yai Lia. Nern Plab Wahn is also spelt in many different ways in English, such as Noneplubwan.

Bottled Heineken 70 baht.

Beer Bar new for 2014.

  Review from Dick Farang, May 2014: Friendly Enough

On Soi Khao Noi a new bar has opened: The Thirsty Beaver.

The location is on the right hand side of Soi Khao Noi when coming from Sukhumvit Road, about 50 metres before the last Tesco Lotus.

It is a rather small bar with one pool table, owned by an Englishman, Bob.

The girls are in their thirties and apparently inexperienced, no stunners at all but friendly enough.

Bar fines are 300 baht ST (two hours) and 400 baht LT.

There are no ST rooms.

Bottled Heineken was 50 baht (happy hour I guess).

  Review from Pattaya-Live, Sept 2008: Back on Track

Late night place. A few girls, nothing special, and a couple of half-decent looking LB's. Full UBC Package for sport lovers, decent music and an OK place to have a few. ST room available.

  Summer 2007:

4 girls, 2 katoeys, 50 Baht Chang and 80 Baht lady drinks.

USABAR

Corner of Soi Khao Noi and Soi Khao Talo

 USABAR

The old UMIM Bar became USABAR on 6th April 2014. It is reported that there are ownership connections with Jungo bar, also at the Dark Side.

 Review from Dick Farang, October 2014: Beware

I will never understand the rationale behind creating confusion by hiring girls and transvestites at the same bar (such as their neighbours KiK and USABAR also do) or gogo (such as Miami A-GoGo on Soi Post Office and We Are No 1 A-GoGo in Jomtien).

Took over from Boom Boom in 2014.

  Review from Dick Farang, July 2014: Very shy

I revisited Welcome Inn (formerly Boom Boom) on Soi Khao Noi.

Apart from some repainting, not much has changed. It appears to be owned not by one, but by two old Thai ladies, who were hanging around.

In the front four not so young girls were waiting for customers. They were friendly, but very average, carrying some weight, aai maak maak (very shy) and not very interested in the real thing, let alone smoking big cigar. I wonder why some people want to work in bars and what they can earn with that attitude.

One with a very minimal command of English had worked at Lek's bar on Soi Khao Talo for three months and another one had worked at Spanky's on Nana Plaza in Bangkok before farming in Buriram and giving birth to three children.

Barfine appeared to be the standard 300 baht and the communal room of the girls apparently served as a ST room.

There was one other farang customer, who seemed to know one of the owners.

Bottled Heineken 75 baht.

  News from Dick Farang, June 2014: Changes

Boom Boom Karaoke has been sold to an old Thai lady and is being repainted.

The sign has been changed to Welcome Inn and is yellow and better visible than the previous one.

The exact location is the northern side of Soi Khao Noi, halfway between Sukhumvit Road and the railway.

White Horse

Eastern Grand Palace Hotel
Soi Kao Talo

 White Horse

Bar and restaurant with no girls

  Review from Dick Farang, July 2014: Tour Venue

White Horse is a low-rise restaurant on the left hand side of the car park of Eastern Grand Palace Hotel, which is on the crossing of Soi Khao Talo and the railway.

It opens in the late afternoon and is very spacious, but I was their only customer.

I surmise the restaurant is primarily intended for the busloads of (Chinese) tourists who stay at the Eastern Grand Palace Hotel.

They appear to have special prices for three bottled beers if you order them at once.

I doubt if many farangs will go there for more than one beer, if any.

White Oyster Bar

Soi Chaiyapornwithi
(at the northern side of Mabprachan Lake)

 White Oyster Bar

Short time bar, previously the Black Pearl. Reports of being a fun place where the girls seem quite pro-active in getting guys to 'go upstairs'

Review from Dick Farang, April 2014: Wishing Well

White Oyster Bar is on Soi Chaiyapornwithi at the northern side of Mabprachan Lake.

Near the entrance are an unused bar and an unused jacuzzi. At the back is a second bar with an indoor pool.

A couple of naked girls are diving in this pool to pick up coins thrown in the water by patrons.

ST rooms are upstairs.

White Oyster Bar seems to be popular with groups of bikers.

Bar Website

 Ying Bar

Beer and short time bar, became Mac's bar in October 2014.

  Review from Dick Farang, August 2014: With a little imagination

Ying Bar is located on the right-hand side of Soi Lablae (also known as Soi Nern Plab Wahn Soi 31, Soi Map Yai Lia Soi 31, Soi Mapyailia Soi 31, Soi Siam Country Club Soi 16, Soi Phon Prapha Nimit Soi 16; the street sign at the Soi Nern Plab Wahn end reads Lablae Road in English) when coming from Soi Nern Plab Wahn.

Due to the never-ending road works on Soi Nern Plab Wahn, people coming from Sukhumvit Road are strongly advised to follow Soi Siam Country Club and to turn right into Soi 16 (at the amber flashing lights).

Opposite Ying Bar is a muddy car park and left of it is a 24 HOURS motel.

Ying Bar is German owned and opens rather late in the afternoon, around 4 p.m.

From 6 p.m. on the girls used to wear bikinis, but that is over now.

Last time I got there in the evening there were more punters than girls and most girls were fatties.

One of the fatties told me she had worked in Pattaya long ago and had started again that same day; she imagined she could charge 2,000 baht for a short time.

ST room 300 baht (barfine included).

Bottled Heineken 90 baht.

Notes


Pattaya bars most likely to be listed are those that occupy a permanent looking standalone building. Beer bars in complexes will not be listed unless mentioned in dispatches. 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
