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.

 Beer House

German themed bar with live band opened in April 2008. Seasonal opening only.

  News July 2011: Seasonal

The bar seems to be seasonal opening only in the winter months when the target Russian visitors are in town.

  Review from Pattaya Secrets, April 2008: Cold & Russian

On entering two things immediately hit me. Firstly aircon, it's colder than the Big C cinema! Secondly Russians!

The place has been really nicely done , with a mixture of tables and chairs, and stools at bars, around a centre stage area.

Only two choices of beer, Erdinger on draft and bottles, and Heineken on draft only, and prices were pretty reasonable.

On the stage, a 5 piece band were playing, they were all Russians, playing Russian songs.  The band actually came across as very competent.

I did speak to one of the Thai waitresses, and she confirmed that the bar has been set up by Russians for Russians.

So why make it look German?

Betty Boum

Pattaya Soi 13/3 (Soi Pattayaland 1)

 Betty Boum

Started out as a GoGo for the new year of 2009. The venue was previously Spicy Girls A-GoGo. The bar has ownership connections with the Eden/Harley Bar. During the low season of 2010 the bar proclaimed itself to be a pub rather than a gogo. Closed in August 2010. Re-opened as an open bar in December 2010. This didn't work out and the venue is now a restaurant

The Beyond Bar

2nd Road
Corner Pattaya Soi 13/2 (Soi Post Office)

 The Beyond

Took over from Malibu bar in 2014. Starts with a ladyboy show and follows with a good live band

  Review from Dick Farang, September 2014: The New Malibu Show

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 21st 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).

Billion Beer Bar

Billion Beer bar

 Billion Beer bar

Short time bar

  Comment from Dick Farang, November 2014: Still Going

Billion Beer Bar on Soi 13/3 (Pattayaland 1) still exists, but as I saw only a fatty (one) sitting there I was not inclined to have a beer there.

  News Dec 2006: Going Up

Now 600 Baht all in

  Review by Swanks, Sept 2006: Best Bargain in Patts

Sometimes a bar "Comes into its own" Almost by accident really!

Billion suddenly has been transformed from a 'no hoper' into a very nice and welcoming watering hole! I do suspect it is more by accident than design, but it really has a lot going for it now!

Drinks are not 'rock bottom' but ok! Lady drinks not anywhere near Walking street prices!

But the policy of just charging 500 baht at the bar for girl and room must make them one of the best bargains in Patts! Tip the girl if you want to but it doesn't seem to be expected and the
girls are just as good as anything I have seen on Soi 6!

The whole place has a nice 'Pub' atmosphere and you can enjoy a relaxing drink at the bar and chat to the 'Chinese' owner and mamasan, and stroke her small dog which often sleeps on the counter! The mutt has an uncanny facial resemblance to her but don't tell her I said so!

If it gets on your nerves, sort of, give it a bit of a shove! Just tell mamasan it fell! Lands on all 4 paws like a cat!

I'm going to get the little sod pissed next week! It's sort of taken to me now so it should be a laugh!

Enjoy!

  Bar Tale from Lean, December 2010: Happy Customer

In October 2010, I had the distinct pleasure of BF'ing the sweetest, sexiest 19 year old in Pattaya at Bodega bar. They charged an extra 50B. Tall, lean, cute, farm-fresh from Issan... Man, I hit the jackpot, repeated with her for 2 more nights. I'll look for her, if she's still there, on my return to Pattaya in Jan 2011.

 Classroom A-GoGo

It calls itself a gogo but the dress code is coyote, with skirts, knickers, tops and bras. Beware of expensive draft beer 100 Baht

  Review from Dick Farang, September 2014: 30 year old schoolgirls

Classroom A-GoGo on Pattayaland 2 (Soi 13/4) is a faded glory that I only visit when I happen to be in the neighbourhood during the afternoon and I desperately need a fresh beer in an air-conditioned environment, in other words not very often.

The venue is split into three units now, separated by (sliding) windows and glass doors.

The rightmost unit seems to serve as a beer bar with access from the street.

The leftmost unit contains two small stages with chrome poles and some seating but only serves as a passage to the toilets.

In the middle unit behind the main entrance, where the action takes place, is a small straight stage with three chrome poles on the right-hand side and seating on the left-hand side.

There were seven dancers of about thirty years old, which was younger than I had expected there.

Three of them were on stage and they went on and off stage one at a time.

Their outfits consisted of a black top over a bra, a checked skirt of 30 to 40 centimetres, black stockings with suspenders and stilettos.

One of them was wearing a black bolero with a huge red bra under it.

I was the only customer.

In-house prices: one lady, one hour: 2,000 baht; two ladies, two hours: 4,000 baht.

Bottled Heineken 130 baht (happy hour 100 baht), lady drinks 100 baht (wine, beer, tequila, etc. 130 baht).

What I find strange is that gogos on Soi LK Metro (by police order ?) are not allowed to open before 6 p.m., whereas Classroom on Pattayaland 2, the gogos on Soi Post Office and on Soi Yamato and probably also Tahitian Queen on Beach Road and Tim Bar Beer on Second Road open in the afternoon.

  News March 2013: The bell rings on dancing class

There are reports on the Pattaya forums that Classroom has given up on dancers. The bar now sports a few hostesses, but barfines are maintained at GoGo level.

  Review August 2010: Over

Classroom A-GoGo has long been banished from the Thai-Anxiety GoGo listings for wearing way too many clothes. And the girls are still over dressed with the usual Britney Spears attire complete with skirt, knickers, blouse and bra.

There were maybe 15 girls in the bar of which 7 were dancing an over long roster. They were below average but there were a couple of dancers that were attractive enough. On average, a little over aged and over weight. I wonder if letting the girls wear so many clothes may rather attract the girls who need to cover up.

The girls seem friendly and willing to come across for a chat.

The draft beer is well over priced at 100 Baht.

Surely as a GoGo the bar offers poor value. But the bar seems to have an alternative role as a hangout bar along the lines of TQ1. There seemed to be quite a few customers having a chat on the high level part of the bar. They were generally chatting amongst themselves and ignoring the dancing.

  Review from Malcolm May 2010: Overdressed

Can't say much more than has already been said. Overdressed girls Draught beer B65, ladydrink B125

  Review June 2008: Gone Coyote

The bar calls itself a gogo but the Thai-Anxiety definition of a gogo is that there should be dancing girls wearing bikinis or preferably less. This bar no longer qualifies as all the girls wear skirts, knickers, tops and bras. The style is Britney Spears school wear which my provide some recompense for the lack of showing.

The dancers were a little below average. There were about 20 girls in the bar of which 4 or 5 were dancing on stage.

The beer price was way above average at 100 Baht for a glass surely smaller than a bottled beer. Strangely the other drinks prices are not so expensive with most choices being in the 100-120 Baht range. There is a happy hour for afternoon drinkers though until 6pm

There were a fair number of customers in the bar so all can't be too bad. But nobody made much effort to get me to stay very long. I probably had a scowl on my face from the 100 Baht draft beer.

  Review by polleke Oct 2007: Consistent

The bar seems to be very stable and seems to hang in

The bar still remains the same, although I found an improvement on the line-up since my last visit. There were plenty of average girls and a couple of better looking ones.

Not so many customers.

My friends loved the place, especially the schoolgirls outfits. The girls  were very friendly and up for a chat and a bit hands on fun.

Just a well run agogo and one of the longest running ones in Patts.

I myself was remembered by a girl I barfined 7 months ago. Those girls have long memories.

  Review from Malcolm, December 2013: Not Light on the Prices

Called in Dicey Reillys. Didn't have Singha Light, my prefered tipple. I was the only one in and realised why when I ordered a Tiger Light, B140. 

  Review from Malcolm, Jan 2010: No Irish Music

Called in one afternoon, Beautiful inside, lot of money been spent. Very quiet.

105 Baht  for bottle of Singha, 160 Baht for Bacardi Breezer. Food expensive too.

No Irish music. Looked through door 10pm one evening, still quiet, still no Irish music

  Review from Pattaya Today: Shuffle Board

The interior renovation retains the huge hospitable bar but with more comfy seating, fourteen TV screens, two pool tables, a new band stand which is the scene for live music Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights from 8.00 pm till midnight. (Lee Shamrock is also scheduled to perform).

The walls are decorated with unique pictures of Celtic women whose exploits during the Viking invasion became legendary and conferred their reputation as fearsome warriors and romantic heroines.

Dicey Reilly's The result is a friendly, contemporary entertainment destination with a laid-back ambiance and Gaelic vibes.

Cat told us that a unique forthcoming attraction will be the arrival of a 5 metre long shuffle board. For the uninitiated (like us) players use broom-shaped paddles to push pucks down a narrow court into the scoring area.

The menu features good, honest pub grub with an Irish twist plus a small selection of Thai dishes,

In a previous incarnation this was quite a lively bar called the Girl Guides Bar. It then became rather a redundant aircon restaurant associated with the Haven Hotel.

 Review from Pattaya Talk May 2007: Bit Expensive

I fancied a nice bit of grub one night so I treated me and Missus to a meal in Hopf.

Glad to see it's not a gay bar anymore. Steak was nice and service excellent. Bit expensive but worth a go and Pizza's and Knuckle ham looked lovely.

  From Steve, Nov 2006: Discriminatory Policies

I’ve been eating in the Hopf Brauhaus on Beach Road for four years. The place has an interesting pseudo-gothic interior decoration. The food comes in large portions and is good quality, though hardly gourmet (and they totally overdo the tomatoes in/on just about everything!). The staff are efficient and mostly quite friendly.

However, I recently took a friend who has a foot deformity there to eat. To cut a long story short, he was denied entry because he didn’t have what they deemed to be ‘proper’ footwear. What did they expect? He can’t wear normal shoes. Anyway, after discussing this with one of the senior waiters that I knew (one of the guys wearing a green jacket), he stood by the doorman’s decision to refuse my friend entry.

I was so damned embarrassed by this. My friend seemed to blame himself for us being refused entry. He was almost in tears as we went off to Pizza Hut to eat. What could I do? It was my stupid idea to take him there as I had always liked the place before this incident. In spite of the Hopf brauhaus being one of the largest and evidently most prosperous restaurants in Pattaya, it has no wheelchair access either.

So be warned, avoid the place if you have a physical handicap. Personally I have decided that I will never eat there again, they made me feel so small. Up to you if you want to support a restaurant with these discriminatory policies.

  From Jil in Pattaya, June 2006: Italian tenor

We met up with Rick and Da at the Hopf Brewery on Walking Street at 11:00 on Saturday night. Why? Because it is only on Saturdays when one of the owners, Enzo, gets up on stage to sing: Yes, Pattaya's only Italian tenor cum human beat box. He really is exceptional, and the place just goes wild when he sings.

The Hopf Brewery still has great beer. Order their home-brewed wheat beer and at 11:00, enjoy the show.

  Summer 2005: No Smoking

Seems popular with the Asian tour parties probably because this is one of the few bars that don't focus on female companionship.

The live band are competent and play the usual pop/rock material but they feature a jazzier treatment than most.

The beer is good but a little expensive.

I found the metal detector search on entry a little off putting, it makes you wonder if they have something to fear from protection racketeers or thugs. Maybe they working with a thought to further royal vistors.

Smoking is prohibited.

  Review from Malcolm May 2012: Popular bar

I think I did the Kings Table on Soi 13 a disservice last time I was here by saying it was more a restaurant than a bar. This is not true, Its a very nice, busy bar.

The 2 German owners are usually about and are friendly and helpful, the girls (not barfineable) are in red uniforms and look very smart.

The food in the restaurant is good and you can eat at the bar if you wish. They have a good barbeque on Saturday evenings.

Went back again for a second helping with the same girl. This time went to a different room, en-suite, large, it was good and so was the service again.

Back here in Pattaya after 2 years. One noticeable difference is the lack of cold towels. 5 years ago almost every bar you went into gave you a cold towel on entry. In 4 days I've only been in 1 bar that gives them, Madam T on second road which still has the nicest toilets in Pattaya. The neon sign alcohol corner has been smashed though.

  Review from Malcolm, January 2010: Nicest toilet in Pattaya

1st small neon sign you see says Alcohol Corner. Pleasant bar, pleasant staff, no hassle.

You must call in there just to see the toilet. Got to be nicest toilet in Pattaya.

  Review from Michael, April 2010: A Bit of Squeeze

Just went to Miss Dino bar after escaping from the Classroom. Anyway I was called in by such friendly girls they pulled me in. Things went downhill from there.

One girl jumped on me she was a tiny thing but o so friendly. Every time I went to get a drink she just hugged me so tight. I had to struggle to let her go. She was so nice and friendly you could not ask for anything more.

Anyway had a great time and cannot wait to go back again. I would recommend it based on my experience..

  Review from Pattaya Addicts, March 2008: Outward Looking

Well in Pattaya it is easy to start thinking you are god's gift to women with all the female attention; when that happens go to Miss Dino's bar to get straightened out. Sit at the bar and you will hardly see a girls face ever. They will all be ignoring you gazing out into the street.

On entry one girl shouted at me what you want dink! I didn't know whether she was asking me or threatening me. Things went down from then on. I asked a girl: how much bar fine? she did not know and asked the Mama San - B600 all night. What for a bar. That is go go bar price. She got up and sat somewhere else.

There are some good looking girls in there but they seem to be all new, and none have any idea on how to be a hostess. They all sit looking out into the street and you cannot get a decent look at them.

  Review from Charlie, Feb 2009: Husband Hunters

I have been staying regularly at Office Girls over the last year when in Pattaya.

The new Mamasan/Owner is Noi, and she gets most of her girls direct from the villages by word of mouth.

They are a good mix of husband-hunters and ST specialists, very friendly and sexy too. Room rates are good at 400Bt.

  News June 2006: News Office

The bar hit the headlines as the hideaway for a woman wanted in the UK in connection with trafficking charges.

  March 2006: Late at the Office

The girls are fun and the bar opens early. The Mamasan's named Arisa and she speaks excellent English.

The girls wear black dresses of various style and length with high heels. More conservative attire than the Soi 6 evening wear, but sexy nonetheless.

Beer bar with food and a good quiz league team

  Review from materialsman, July 2009: Hassle Free?

Palmer's is reasonably hassle free, at least from the ladies, but it is a sign of the economic times that the watch vendors et al, are getting pretty consistent in their sales pitches, and they do not appear to be discouraged by the simple 'miaow khrap' anymore, more difficult to shake off than a bogey stuck to your middle finger!

  Review from Thaigers, Jan 2009: Reasonable English Food

Long lasting bar run by an English guy who used to be a cook in the armed forces.

A few girls, some of whom go as they say, and some reasonable English food and decent drinks prices. Draught is 55 baht a glass. A lot of older guys hang out there and he gets a lot of repeat business.

  Review from Asia Bugle, Sept 2007: Great Value

We had the standard fish-and-chips dinner in Palmers for 150 baht and it was excellent, proving great value for the price.

B650 for BJ, B70 for bottle of Singha. A girl next door said the ladyboys had gone. When I passed the girls did look real. She told me it was the same owner as Golden Girl.

  From Pattaya Secrets, Oct 2005: Cutey

Most of the girls in front were rather old and not that good looking. I really didn't expect much as I walked in and they all cheered and the girls in the bars on either side let out a little cry. I sat down and a surprisingly cute little thing kneeled down in front of me and gave me the usual what would you like to drink.

3 Tigers later I found my nerve to head upstairs still not sure what to expect in the upstairs bar. Walking into the little upstairs bar no one was in there but us, which relieved me. I sat on a bar stool, which as she got into it was a mistake because the seat top wasn't bolted to the legs and it slid around a lot. I waived her to stop and to head over to the chairs, right at that moment standing there with my hard on another girl walked in to sit behind the counter, I stood there for a moment confused and the little cutey that I never got her name just pulled me to a seat where she recommenced her incredibly poor blow job.

At that moment 3 more girls and 3 really, I mean really old guys walked in with them and they just dropped trousers without a care. The wrinkly old man sack actually killed my viagra fueled hard on instantly. Knowing there was no way in Hell I was going to blow after that sight. I pulled my pants up. I ran to the counter, paid and got out of there as fast as I could.

  October 2005:

350 Baht for BBBJCIM in upstairs bar. 600 Baht for half hour BJ in private room

  2004 from www.PattayaLovers.com: Warning

An interesting (actually scary) situation occurred during my last trip. Like everyone else, I have my our daily routine, which included foot massage, dick massage (Soi BJ) etc...among other things. So one day I entered pump station and befriended a US airforce pilot on his 3-day break. He was new to the scene and we chatted for a while and ended up choosing a girl each and walked upstairs.

We got seated pants down and were being cleaned when I got this sudden doubt about this 'girl's gender. I wondered out this out loud to him...Before I warned him he has to be careful how he handles the retreat given that we are locked inside a small dark upstairs room (in my case had my passport with me since I had just cashed my TC, he demanded (although politely) that his lady prove her gender. She proceeded to pull his hand towards her fully covered chest...but both of us were unconvinced. The obvious next demand followed at which point, the Katoey got up, got hold on the solid ash-tray and hurled it towards me. Yes me! My girl had just begun her act down below and this flying ash-tray in my direction shrunk my dick in a fraction of a second ;-) I ducked, got up and walked backwards (still with my pants down)...At this point my shocked new-friend held tried to restrain the katoey who was charging angrily towards me with little success. Mind you we were the only two guys in this upstairs dark room.

Long story cut short...I managed to shield myself with this pilot friend, the katoey still trying to 'kill' me. I believe that at the moment since she was unwilling to reason, negotiate (we both offered her several hundred dollars, even thousands but to no avail)...Somehow we managed to get downstairs still walking backwards until we got to the main bar. At which point I got a little bold and we tried to complain to the mamasan. She did nothing.

 Pussy Galore Sports Bar

Beer bar with aircon. Food available from own kitchen.

  Review June 2006: Grandma Bar

Showing some enthusiasm after the recent rework the bar have laid on half a dozen welcome staff. The pretty girls will show you up the steps but that's as far as they go.

Once inside you will see plenty of small tables, a pool table and a bar. There were about 15 girls dotted around but I headed for the bar. I was only the second farang in the joint at about 8pm

As soon as I located a stool, up popped a granny who was older than my own. I tried to shake her off with such subtle comments as "I don't want to talk you" but it made no impression. She hung in there grimly whilst I downed my beer, and as fast as my legs could take me I was out of there.

For fans of cold beer, the bar excels, mine was frozen solid. They soon popped it in the microwave (or swapped it for another) so no problems there. A bottled Tiger was 75 Baht.

Probably just bad luck but I do find it ego sapping to be fobbed off with the oldies. It's as if all 15 girls looked me over and decided that my ugliness was best matched by the wooden spoon. I go to Pattaya to live the dream life, not to be reminded of being old and ugly.

  News, June 2006: Rooms Galore

The redevelopment has been completed. It is said to look very good inside. The bar now has rooms available and there are a lot of new girls.

  Review November 2005: Bores Galore

Amazingly the bar employs several meeters and greeters. They must spend their time saying hello and then goodbye just a few minutes later.

The bar exudes boredom. There is pool table and a few TVs. There are a few girls lounging around but they couldn't be bothered to get up off their arses to say hello.

A bottle beer was 75 Baht. Money well wasted.

  Review from Malcolm January 2010: Pricey Drinks

110 Baht for a bottle of Singha. 260 Baht for draught Kilkenny. (thats 5.20 in real money). No Irish music.

  Review from Pattaya Secrets, Feb 2008: Pricey Drinks

Nice Bar But there prices are too high for a pub had a few drinks yesterday in This new Shenanigans in Pattaya there Vodka for a shot was 160 Baht without a mixer and red wine was 180 Baht a glass.

It's way over the top. The wine, by the bottle, is also expensive and not very good. The food is pricey for very basic pub grub. Shame they moved as the old venue had considerably more character than this modern mausoleum.

  Review from Jil in Pattaya, Nov 2007: Pretty Place

The new space is really quite nice, with tons of wood finish, a tiled floor, and very high quality furnishings. Although any connection to Ireland and the atmosphere of an Irish pub is completely gone, it is a pretty place. There is also outdoor seating, located out in front of the restaurant.

The interior of Shenanigans is very nice but not particularly Irish. I really didn't even look at the menu, except to get an idea of the prices: It seemed that the majority of dishes were in the 300-350 baht range... a bit pricey, but for an upscale non-fancy place like this, it's about average.

Instead, I went for the Friday-night special: All you can eat bar-be-que ribs for 295 baht... which is really a pretty good deal. The ribs were great... I also had a pint of Kilkenny for 220 baht.

The total bill for 5 people came to 2700 baht, which is about average for Pattaya upscale tourist-focused locations like this. I really wouldn't recommend Shenanigans over a more homely place like the Pig & Whistle on Soi 7, or The Queen Vic on Soi 6... but it's a nice enough place to take out-of-towners for dinner before starting a night out in Pattaya.

  Review Summer 2005: Up Market

It does some excellent traditional meals although these are on the pricy side for Pattaya. Sunday lunch accompanied by sport on TV seems well popular.

Perhaps a little bit of an up market crowd though. The bar always seems to feature in the company parties that provide posed pictures of socialites in the local press.

  Review 1st August 2010: Nice Outline

There were four girls waiting outside the door of which a couple were nice and the others a bit old. So I made the usual signs and wandered in, only to notice that my choice was overruled and an oldie followed me in. Normally I would do a quick U turn but as I wanted to see the bar I let it ride.

Inside is a nice newly decorated bar with comfortable seats and good aircon. The seating area looks badly laid out though, with the large majority of seats in a communal area looking as if it has been designed for large parties of friends with all the seats overlooking the others. Surely the bar would be better designed with bays and mini barriers that give cues of privacy. There is one seating bay however, and the 2nd customer to enter was quick to bagsy that area.

The entertainment options are pretty slim in the bar with a single picture of a lady repeated many times around the room and TVs showing the FTV fashion channel.

Prices were distinctly poor value at 100 Baht for a bottled beer and 130 Baht for a lady drink. There are menus on the table but somehow these neglected to include the prices.

The bar is attractive enough that it may find a niche as a smart set drinking bar, but I rather suspect that the expats won't put up with expensive drinks and the silly tricks with the eye candy being pinned to the door.

Prices are reported as 1500 Baht all in for upstairs room but takeaways are restricted by an enormous 1500 Baht barfine.

  Review from Lindsay, Sept 2008: Recommended

I Spent many early evenings and some afternoons in Wonderful Bar 1 on the corner of Second Rd and Soi 13/1 during my August 2008 stay drinking bottles of singha beer for 40 baht.

The staff are very friendly and the bar girls arrive at 5.00pm about 25 altogether. Although some are average they are great company.

Two bands play every night starting at 6.00pm changing half way during the evening and both play good music and sound great.

This is a very popular bar mostly busy unlike a lot of Pattaya bars. They obviously have a fair swag of local expats drink there regularly and most bars I am sure would envy the business this bar generates.

Recommended and lady drinks are also reasonable at 95 baht and they don’t accept the drink and then bugger off.

 Review from Pattaya Secrets, July 2007: Comfortable Start

Very relaxing early evening atmosphere with 45Baht Heinekens. The Music is mellow and numerous Fans keep it very comfortable. The girls leave you alone unless you are looking. If you want a low key comfortable start to the evening this is the perfect place.

  September 05: Place to Chill

If you want a place to chill , beer 45 baht 5-7pm then 50 baht all night try Wonderful 1.  Always a lot of Brits in there...always my starting point anyways.

There is band that generally start at 9pm. Many of the 30 or so girls are acceptable.

  Review from Malcolm, January 2013: Still Wonderful

It's a bar that doesn't change much. Even the daytime staff are the same ones as when I was here last May.

Still keeps busy though.

The Only difference since your last review are the prices. Up to 7 pm, Leo & Chang 45 B, Singha 50 B and San Mig & Heineken 55 B.

Pretty much the same at Wonderful Bar 1, which has the same prices.

  December 2005:

Well worth while dropping by in the happy hour ( ie any datime hour until 7pm). The prices are very reasonable.

There is always fun to be had with the the easiest of opening gambits being a challenge to a game of Connect 4. For 40 Baht a daytime drink you can't go too far wrong

  October 2005:

The centrepiece is a large bar, in which a dozen or so girls are usually hanging around waiting for a game of Connect 4. The best seats hug the bar, but there are also sofas and outside seating. Service here is fast and friendly, with the girls keen to chat without being pushy.

It's a big bar, so there's never a feeling of being crowded. TV screens hang in each corner. With black walls and bright red and yellow lighting, it has a club-cum-warehouse feel.

To the back of the bar is a pool table and more seating.

  July 2005:

A great place to have a few 'happy hour' beers in the afternoon and a good last stop place at night before calling it a night. As an extra bonus, several good looking girls available for take out.

Their band's are not bad

  Review from Tony, Feb 2008: A Good Local

A really good local beer bar and an ideal place to meet up to start your day or night off. Run by three solid Yorkshire lads who know all the ropes of Pattaya and are more than willing to pass their advice on.

If golf's your thing then its even better. They organise golf days and even lay on the mini bus service at a far cheaper rate than going through an agent.

The pub is in a darts league and local matches abound. The rooms upstairs are clean and spacious with satellite TV etc and are ideal if your on a lads holiday.

Bar staff are nice and friendly but more importantly, honest. You can also sort your airport taxi out from the bar. Just ask for Neil, Mick or Eddie.

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
