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.

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

2 Donna Bar

Jomtien Complex
(inside in the middle)
 2 Donna Bar

New beer bar for August 2007

  Review from connections of Two Donnas, March 2008: Very Welcoming

The two partners are Joy and Dow who are at the bar every day and night, they will sit down and introduce themselves to all new customers and are not shy about buying a drink (or accepting one!!). Both are pretty well known in Jomtien and seem to know everyone that comes in or passes the bar.

No pool table but all the live English Premier League games are shown.

Prices are lower than most bars, (except next door where drinks are almost given away) beer 50-70 baht, shorts pretty cheap and lady drinks are the standard 90 baht.

Loads of girls, 15 at the moment, nothing too stunning, but a few are pretty cute all can talk English, some young some not so young and one Katoey, all the girls are pretty good crack and up for a laugh, especially if you go inside the bar and close the doors.....

The younger cute ones disappear most night before 10.00 so get there early for a better choice

Barfines are the standard 300 baht, no ST rooms but the girls will take you round the corner if you want,

Verdict, nice atmosphere good reasonable priced drinks and a good bunch of girls with two owners who will make you very welcome.

  Review from Maurice, Jan 2010: Accommodating

I've just got back from Jomtien and stayed in Soi 4. My local become Aeuws bar Soi 4.

It's a small friendly bar, no food but a Thai takeaway kitchen next door will bring you food at next to nothing prices.

The drinks are very reasonable Finlandia vodka and mixer 90 baht.

The punters are mainly Norwegian expats and very friendly after a few drinks especially if your a Brit.

The lady boss Aeuw is a lovely lady and makes you very welcome. As the evening wears on drinks appear for every one on your table and the girl points to some other table which bought them. Nice custom reminded me of Greek tavernas.

Takeaway bar girls in the evenings not young but very accommodating.

Beer bar opened 30th October 2007

  News Oct 2006: New

There's  a new bar on Thappraya Road a few paces from Dong Tan police station.

The Beach Club is owned by the same individual that owns BJ3, Lucky Star, and a host of other bars and GoGo's. It is managed by Mike.

The Beach Club is an open air bar with friendly staff, very friendly prices and good music played at a reasonable volume.

The theme of the bar is unique and we hope to become the home of those looking for something just a little different than the normal beer bar.

Daily drink specials, free wireless internet, and pool tables, will round out the fun at the Beach Club.

 Bristol Music Bar

Shophouse bar with live music, no hostesses

  From the bar, Feb 2006: Jamming

The Bristol Music Bar is situated in a quiet Soi on Jomtien Beach Road, It’s main attraction is hosting a Jamming Session each and every Sunday from 7:00pm where anybody can bring an instrument and have a Jam with like minded musicians. The Bar supports the Camillian Society based in Rayong who care for children with HIV and Aids and so far since September 2006 have raised over 120,000 Baht.

The Bar, during the week is where a visitor or Expat can come and relax without the Hassle associated with other bars as they do not employ “Ladies” to take care of you. Come and have a game of chess / backgammon and listen to some of their 200 music DVD’s and or watch major sports events with their in house satellite system supported by 4 TV’s around the bar.

Beer Chang is sold at 45 Baht. This bar is a great place to go to if you would just like to chat and not be hassled by the usual interruptions, not to mention listening to great live music on a Sunday night.

  February 2006:

Their food is excellent and is freshly cooked.

Has been closed for a 3 weeks due to a holiday but has now re-opened.

  Summer 2005:

Heiner and Lee run a clean and pleasant bar with low booze prices and about ten more or less appealing take-away girls. Beer, soft drinks and Thai whisky are reasonably priced with a 20 Baht supplement if bought as lady drinks. Thai and mainly German food is available (the Frikadellen are very tasty)  They had to change their venue as some of the shops north of the 711 on the corner of Soi Casa, Jomtien will be demolished soon to make way for yet another 4 rai, 32 storey mega-hotel.

  Review from Ian, May 2009: An Excellent little bar

I called in two weeks ago and although there aren't too many ladies there I was made most welcome. Very refreshing to go into a bar and be welcomed by a lady with a wet towel and a massage, especially when its this hot.

Beer prices are very reasonable with all major beers at 65 baht. Music was excellent with a vast range of songs from the 60's, 70's and 80's.

Top quality service, I will be back.

 Cosy Bar

Shop bar

  Review April 2008: Enticing But Unsatisfying

The bar seems to be under new management with a fair few girls on welcome duty dressed attractively in pleated skirts and blouses.

I was enticed inside but it was a bit of a waste of time, the girl was simply not into anything that naughty uniform may suggest

  Review Oct 2007: Same Same

I first ran into one of Kevin's places when it was the Fresh Orange in Pattaya. Found a lovely lady there that I kept the rest of the trip and then ran into several times later. I got some insight and found out he had a hard time keeping ladies. Hard boss to work for at cost to the running of a good bar.

I paid a visit to the Jomtien bar on my last trip. Same Same.

  March 2006: Frayed

Tempers seemed pretty frayed and it was not a pleasant environment to drink in. Maybe just a bad evening.

  Review from jj, March 2006: Cosy Corner

The Cosy Bar is on the outside of Jomtien Plaza across from the Hanuman Statue circle, is an interesting and variable place.

It is a bit odd how the personality of some bars depends solely on the gals who work there while others have dominant managers who keep things on a more even keel. Cosy Bar is the former.

When the website was constructed a few months ago, the crop of girls pictured there were cute and extremely friendly. Somehow they have all wandered off. The current crop of 4-6 are considerably less fun.

Owner Kevin's livelihood seems to be predicated on his pool nights and Brit pool-playing pals. Everyone else who finds the bar is 'profit'. He also has never figured out how to open the email on his website, so don't bother asking a question.

One unique element of Cosy Bar  is the 'cosy curtained corners'. Just past the pool table and inside the bar are two bench-seat areas with curtains. Inviting a couple of gals into the 'cosy curtained corner' can be an interesting experience, just short of an short time room visit. They tend to be very un-inhibited behind the curtain.

Cosy Bar can be a fun evening or a total bust depending on who is working or still available.

  Comment from Pattaya-Addicts, Aug 2010:

A very large bar near with about 10 pool tables inside. My kind of bar except 80B for a small Tiger.

  Comment by Paul, May 2009: Take Care

This is the second time that they have short changed me. I will not go back again.

  Review by Steve, Feb 2006: Moderately Cool

A busy place with loud music, it can get quite crowded. Lots of ladies working here, far too many it sometimes seems. Very variable quality too.

They seem to have a problem keeping their beer cold enough for my tastes. ‘Heineken yen yen’ often results in a modestly cool bottle of beer. But given the number of ladies, as long as you will buy them a drink you will never be short of someone to talk to here (or at least practise sign language with).

Too many mangy dogs around the bar for my liking, but you get a lot of traders passing through and this is a good place to buy pirated DVD’s. Or Rolexes. Or just about anything else. You only get bar stools to sit on at the tables, or even less comfortable stools if you sit by the roadside (too much noise and too many exhaust fumes).

Compared with the comfy cushioned seats available in many other bars in this area of Jomtien, I am always surprised how busy the place is.

DK Bar sign

DK Bar

 DK Bar

Beer bar, replacing Palace Bar, opened in May 2006

  Review May 2009: Recessionary Blues

The bar seems to have suffered a bit from the recession and seems to have lost the girls who had any interest in looking after customers. Presumably any with enthusiasm for tips and extras have rapidly moved on to Pattaya which has done a better job in retaining a few customers.

They now have a bunch who are more like restaurant waitresses who prefer to stay at arms length rather than get friendly with the customers. I think they would prefer it if you would drink alone and let them get on with their chat with the other girls in front of the bar. Best bet is probably a game of pool as they can enjoy that without too much effort.

Bottled beer is 75 Baht

  Review Dec 2008: Consistent

The bar is proving to be one of the most consistent places in Jomtien to find a friendly girl who also knows how to make customers feel in a good mood for a little upstairs entertainment.

  Review Nov 2008: Expensive Room

A very friendly girl made for a pleasant stay but they charge a barfine of 200 Baht in addition to the 1 hour short time room charge of 300 Baht. Seems excessive to charge a barfine for just an hour away. Most similar bars don't do this.

  Review April 2008: Geared for Pool

I have popped in a couple of times of late and found a pretty girl or two for a chat.

The bar suffers a from a lack of comfortable seating as it seems geared up mostly for pool players.

There is a convenient short time room but be aware that the staff bang on the door punctually when your time is up.

Opened Jan 2007. Plush looking aircon venue with high backed easy chairs

  Update March 2012: Prices

All basic bottled beers are 50 baht. Cocktails are 70 Baht.

  Review from Thai Visa Sept 2008: Marble

By 4 pm the place was heaving. It's a large air conned bar inside with plenty of sofa's and comfy bar stool everywhere and with a huge "terrace" outside with tables and chairs.

The place is wall to wall marble, including the toilets which are the cleanest I've ever seen. They also have "smoking rooms" upstairs.

Drinks were served by one of about a dozen lovelies.

All bottled beers were only 40 baht!

  Review from Pattaya-Live June 2008: Whiskey

Nice big double unit with all-marble floors and very nice (hotel-type) black marbled toilets. A real clincher (for me) was the great sofas inside with matching leather footstools....extremely comfortable. I'm not a big beer drinker personally-but at 40Baht for all beer (even Heineken), it's hard to beat!

The Cognac/Brandy selection was something to behold...I don't know of a better selection in Pattaya! Some horrendously expensive stuff, but if you pick through the pricelist, the Hennessy VSOP at 100/baht a shot is, in my opinion, not bad value at all. All cocktails, (Singapore Sling/Mai Tai etc..) are only 100 baht.

Single Malt Whiskey/"Good" Blends, is my drink and they had a few nice choices. It wouldn't be up to the standard of choices that are at the "Whiskey,Whisky Bar/soi 6"....but not too bad nonetheless! Some great deals caught my eye.......... MacAllan(12 yr)-150 baht Glenmorangie(10 yr)-130 baht Johnnie Gold-150 baht

  Review from Pattaya Pages Sep 2007: Cheap Drinks

Definitely a place for cheap drinks (Gin only 60 baht, and bottled Heineken only 40 baht!) but sadly, the girls didn't really catch our eye.

  Review Aug 2007: Plush Sofas

There were about 8 hostesses available in the bar, of which a couple were good looking. Unfortunately the lady that attached herself to me was not to taste so this was definitely a one drink visit.

I had to try one of the big plush leather sofas but in the end maybe these are not such a good for a hostess bar. My hostess sat opposite and the seats are so big that the distance triggered body language of being standoffish.

Looking around at a couple of guys who were enjoying the company of the hostesses, they were seated at the bar stools. Maybe a lesson for next time.

But the bar is very attractive and the drinks prices are very reasonable at 40 Baht for bottled beers.

  Comment from Pattaya-Addicts, Aug 2010:

The girls in this bar were stunning, dressed in aqua-marine dresses & couldn't do enough for you. Prices were a bit high at 60B for a small Tiger.

  From Pattaya Secrets, Aug 2007: Sixties Music

I drink in there quite often when I'm in Jomtien, good for a chat and a game of pool,

The Japanese owner loves playing sixties music...Beatles, Stones, Doors etc

  March 2006: Fly On By

There were half a dozen girls, 2 were busy and 4 were playing pool with each other. That meant there were none who were available to chat.

Presumably the manager was offsite as no one seemed to show any interest in customers at this bar.

One to avoid.

  News Dec 2007: Coyote

The bar has recently being developed with an (upstairs?) room for a disco with coyote dancers. The dancing starts at 10pm.

  Review April 2006: Transformers

I was enticed in by the prospect of checking out one of the 4 or 5 attractive girls waiting to serve. There were in fact about 10 working at the bar but a few would have been shooed away.

I sat down to watch the Jomtien world to pass me by but the view was somewhat overshadowed by a rather large electric pylon and transformer that sit directly in front of the bar.

No problems, I had an attractive hostess so I turned by gaze inwards instead. Couldn't stay too long though as it was a hot evening and this bar offers little in the way of effective fans.

Bottled beer and coke were 60 Baht & 50 Baht. Lady drinks are 90 Baht

A welcome air conditioned bar at the end of Soi Whitehouse. The bar has a small bar area and a few sofas. The sofas were press ganged into a sleeping area for the girls on duty rather than for customer seating.

The girls were welcoming enough but after a while preferred to chat amongst themselves. Late offers of short time seemed a little unconvincing after being ignored from proceedings for the last half hour.

  Price Report, Sept 2008:

Bottled beer still 70 Baht.

  Review by Steve, Feb 2006: Community

This is the bar on the main road to the beach, its sister KR (or whatever, typical Thai lack of imagination in naming places) is in the off-road soi at the back. There are comfortable cushioned seats right alongside the road. Look right and you are just 30 or 40 yards from the beach. A nice spot to relax, though the traffic fumes can be a pain.

Very friendly ladies and cold beer. Cheaper than some places, too, though at New Year they put the price of a bottle of Heineken up to 70 Baht.

Decent toilets. Free pool from 7:00 until midnight. They make a real effort here, the way they decorate the place for Halloween, Loy Krathong and various parties is a pleasure to behold.

The ladies live on-site upstairs so they have a genuine sense of community. There’s also relatively little staff turnover, so you can get to know the ladies and they probably won’t be gone tomorrow. As with all beer bars, the ladies are mostly not stunners, but at present there are certainly two hot girls here who love to make some money outside the bar confines.

  Review by Rich, February 2010: Can't wait to get back

Fantastic little bar.

I've been going there for the last 3 years and will back in March with Long Tail Bar being my first port of call for a drink, the girls aren't lookers but really friendly and the owner is a great fella.

Always made to feel welcome a great place to go during the day for a beer and good conversation.

Can't wait to get back.

  Review by Rob, July 2008: Great bar for daytime drinking

Great bar for day time drinking. I've spent nearly four years drinking here, many evenings and rarely have I had any trouble holding a conversation.

Spinner the owner when in the bar is always on form and very friendly as is his missus.

The girls are not always stunners granted but it is a bar where you can go meet up with pals have a 'hassle free' beer, play pool or watch football and is great spot for watching the world go by.

  Review by jj, April 2008: Non-Descript

This is a completely non-descript bar with a stable of long-in-the-tooth ladies.

Its biggest drawback is the noise. This is generated by the adjacent bar playing something vaguely resembling music at maximum volume. This made normal conversation at Long Tail nearly impossible. Not sure what the neighbors can do when one decides to be the big bully on the block.

Fortunately, the mamassan at Long Tail has not entered into a Soi-7-style battle of the bands. Rather she has just allowed her stereo to gather dust.

All boils down to a place I will not likely be seen in again!

It's a triple unit, more legroom than the original in Pattaya,and a nice new interior. Same value as in Pattaya, 150 Baht Guinness and John Smiths, till 6pm.

  Review Jan 2006: Too Beautiful

A rather unexciting bar that could do with a few lessons in body language and customer service. Most customers seemed to be only staying for a quick drink as the girls were either too new to partake in the basics, too stand offish, or else too beautiful..."what you looking at?" came my way a couple of times.

Beers were reasonable around the 55 Baht mark but a lady drink cost 105 Baht.

  Review April 2006: Cool Advice

If any bar owner is struggling for ideas to attract people to a bar then my first tip must always be to get aircon. My itinerary of Jomtien bars is based on staying cool and I also prefer the level of privacy afforded by an inside bar.

My first visit to the bar was indeed in search of cool...and I found it here. I have walked past the bar several times but it always looked quiet. But once inside it turns out to be a popular hideaway. The usual, drinks, girls, pool and bar games is the order of the day. But it felt pretty much like a local in the UK...except for the drinks, girls and bar games.

  Review May 2009: Door Candy

I was diverted by a pretty girl inviting me in. She duly followed me in and took my order only to scoot off as soon as she had handed it over.

I really don't know why bars operate this stupid trick, it does nothing to ensure that customers enjoy their stay or indeed return another day. Presumably the owners don't care, as long as you have bought one drink, they are quids in.

75 Baht for a lonely bottle of beer.

  Review from jj, May 2006: Offish

I spent a pleasant half-hour sitting on the couch talking to a lady in jeans and a t-shirt, who never once so much as touched my hand!

Don't know why they bother opening the doors.

  Review May 2006: Bar for a Rainy Day

As I was walking past, I felt a few spots of rain, so considering it an omen I popped in whilst the ensuing storm passed.

It is a small English run aircon bar with about half a dozen girls, most of which were presentable.

Had a pleasant enough drink with a friendly girl. Coke was 35 Baht, bottled Tiger 65 Baht and lady drinks 90 Baht. The barfine is 300 Baht, an amount considered too high by a half tempted customer.

Once passing by when the heavens opened. Befriended by a rather large but pretty girl who was just a little too eager for a barfine. I soon found a more suitable companion but the rain stopped and I was on my way.

The bar was marginally notable for catering to both farangs and Thais.

Previously Sally's Bar, became Roadhouse by spring 2012. Still mixed girls and ladyboys

  Review from Soi-Katoey May 2006: Mixed Gender

Run by a ladyboy and her British husband, this beer bar has between 7 and 10 ladyboys and 5 or 6 ladies working in there on a regular basis.

Nice place, the owners play good music, and they have a friendly attitude.

  Review January 2006:

Dropped into this bar at 4pm recently. Left at 4:35pm after a 50 Baht small Chang beer.

Nothing of interest. A gay cashier, a midget, some gender benders with large chests and baritone voices, the ubiquitous pool table, very uncomfortable furnishings and no chit-chat whatsoever.

Thankfully, my one and only visit.

  Review Summer 2005:

Stopped there after visiting the immigration office. Sally has HUGE knockers and was very friendly. Sat with another cutie who showed me a few racy pics of herself on her cellphone. I guess those cellphones aren't all bad. I did eat something, but I don't remember what it was. Too many distractions.

Nice but expensive, 110 Baht for a bottle of Singha. 260 Baht for draught Kilkenny (that's 5.20 in real money). Very quiet. No Irish music. Am I missing something about Irish bars in Pattaya. There are a couple on Soi LK Metro, again no Irish music.

  Note May 2010: May 2010: Stifling

The bar is saving money during low season by dispensing with the aircon (and therefore at least this customer)

 Review from Pattaya-Live, March 2008: Great Vantage Point

Great vantage point for being a nosey twat, plenty of ladies and lots of ale...It was all good.

  Review Aug 2007: Taking More Care

The bar has gradually been employing a few more attractive girls to sit outside and entice people in so it was about time to see if this was reflecting a more positive attitude to customer care.

And indeed things have improved a little. An attractive and responsive girl took me into her bosom and made for a pleasant few drinks.

There are a few other entertainments, firstly there is pool on the large tables or secondly, one could sit for half an hour watching a couple of pretty young things preening themselves in front of the mirror. I have a feeling that some hansum men were expected...not that I saw any though.

  Review Jan 2006: No Idea of Customer Care

There were a few cute girls playing pool with young guys and few more pretty enough girls outside. However the bar could only rustle up the bar oldie to take of me so I shooed her away and was left to drink a lonely beer. This bar definitely needs a mamasang to remind the girls that they should be taking care of customers rather than sending them to Coventry. Bottled beer was 55 Baht.

  News Oct 2008: Closed In

The previously open bar has now been enclosed. Not so sure about the aircon though, fans were well needed. Also the girls haven't worked out how customer assignment works and they got it very wrong for me.

  Review by Swanks, April 2006: Kwai Falangs

I enjoyed a visit as the "Invisible man". I don't know what the bar girls do there except talk to each other and eat. They would find it interesting to talk to customers I am sure. They might find out that a lot of long term residents understand some "Lao" as well as Thai now and can understand there constant catty comments about customers... Still, just another Kwai Falang [translation: fat old stupid rich westerner] who wont be bothering them again.

  Summer 2005:

Large beer bar with a dozen girls. I had a lonely pint as I turned up at meal time and the girls were more intent on the scran than the customers. Perhaps it would be more friendly at another time, but then again, it is always meal time in Thailand.

 The Winchester

Renamed as The Blind Beggar but eventually closed. Has now re-opened with the previous name, Winchester Club. Totally renovated in late 2012. Beers are now 80 Baht (70 for Chang). Lady drinks are either 120 or 130 Baht. Rooms are 350 and the ladies ask for 1000 Baht.

Weekly free barbecue on Tuesday and Sunday starting from 3pm

  News, December 2012: Returns as a Gentlemen's Club

Set to re-open on Friday 14th December as a Gentlemen's Club. Will have themed nighttime entertainment promising such delights as oil wrestling, domination, sexy nurses and more.

  News, September 2012: Renovation

One of the original daytime bars pre-dating gentlemen's clubs has been continuing in South Jomtien on Soi Wat Boon. However it has become a little shabby and is now closed for renovation.

The bar will re-open in November and it is promising that it will be a new club.

  Prices, September 2012: Cheapest in Town

Bottled Chang is 50 Baht and lady drinks are 75 Baht.

 Review Pattaya Today: Night March, Aug 2008: Still on the List

We were pleasantly surprised. The decor in the enclosed air-conditioned section hasn’t changed much internally over the years, so it all looked quite familiar. For smokers there is a special room off to the side. At the back is an open area with a couple of pool tables that appear to get plenty of customer usage. The music is laid-back 60s and 70s in the main, and perfect to provide background ambience.

Drinks start at 50 baht for soft drinks, bottled beer 65 baht and lady drinks a sensible 75 baht.

The quality of girls runs the gamut from young, tall and lean to older and ample-proportioned and everything in between.

The Winchester was always famous for its Sunday buffet and this remains the case today, the nosh being served up from 3:00pm onwards.

Definitely a place to put on the list of joints to frequent.

  Review from Pattaya Pages, Sep 2007: Center of Attention

Inside, we found ourselves the center of attention for at least 10 girls .... that's to say that we had 10 girls pounce on us, the other 15 or so seemed quite happy to continue dancing around the poles etc.

This was fun, but still not arriving until around 7pm when the place closes at 8pm ... Certainly worth a daytime visit though.

  News, July 2007: Fires Up

The Winchester Club re-opened on Friday 13th July.

  News from Thai Visa, June 2007: Gun Club

The bar now has a new sign outside with crossed Winchester guns on it. Looks like the whole bar is being re furbished and will open as the Winchester Gun Club.

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
