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

A Gentlemen's Lounge opened in June 2016. Previously Secret Garden and KIDS VIP.

 News from Dick Farang, June 2016: Toe Poke

On Soi Kopai Soi 10, at the previous location of KIDS VIP and Secret Garden, The Camel Toe has opened.

The premises have been completely refurbished. The inner walls have been removed and also the naked sushi girl table has disappeared. The toilets are inside now, left of the bar counter, which has been extended to the right. The disturbing fake oak trunk above the bar counter also has disappeared.

Everywhere are high tables with bar stools and coffee tables with bench seating now. The different sections can still be curtained off.

I saw two chaste waitresses in solid denim shorts and white polo shirts. I also saw five or six mostly old, fat and ugly freelancers in thin white cotton shorts and in thin white cotton spaghetti shirts. As they were wearing underwear there was no camel toe effect.

I saw several men, but a number of them could have been the boss and his mates.

I was told that no barfines were charged, that a ST room nearby was available at 350 baht and that the girls expected 1,000 baht ST.

I was also told that The Camel Toe was owned by the same people as Pandora's on Soi LK Metro.

Bottled Heineken 80 baht.

  From Pattaya-Live, August 2009: Latest Impressions

Not so high quality ladies these days.

  From Pattaya-Addicts, Sept 2008: First Impressions

Good looking bar with high quality ladies but they are asking top dollar and may be out of place in a fairly remote soi.

  From Chicaboom, Sept 2008: Plans

The plan is to do a quality British breakfast from 8.00 am and also offer good food throughout the day.

Midday we have at least 8 ladies all dressed in uniform eg  nurse, secretary etc, these girls will dance, serve and be very willing hosts to our clientel.

Short time rooms are available and we think it will become a good funtime place to spend the afternoon.

Nice seating area outside if you fancy a quiet beer. Evenings will be very much the same same with more stunning hosts and we may try some live music.

All major sporting events will be shown on our 3 lcd screens and to stand out from the crowd we have a 10 foot long hdi projector with all the surround etc , giving out an awesome experience.

Swiss Restaurant

  From Dick Farang, February 2015:

On Thappraya Road Soi 13 I discovered a Swiss restaurant: Edelweiss.

Everything is a bit basic, but the food is good, reasonably priced and plenty and the place appears to be popular with Swiss people.

They have two daily specials: menu 1 at 225 baht and menu 2 at 315 baht.

Both daily specials and all main dishes include soup and salad buffet.

Short time bar previously the Harley Pub

  From Pattaya-Live, August 2009: Latest Impressions

Not so high quality ladies these days.

  Review from Pattaya Secrets, Feb 2007: All Veterans

This used to have some lovelies but sadly disappointed... Around 8-10 girls... all veterans... Had a chat with two of them... very funny and pleasant... but about as sexually stimulating as Mrs Doubtfire... They admitted most of the ''sexy'' girls had gone away with farang or gone home already....

  Jan 2005:

The Harley bar is big. It looks like an old fashioned Western themed bar you might see in Arizona. They have 3 or 4 pool tables in the back. If you decide to take a girl, there is a 150 baht bar fine and 200 baht for a ST room in the hotel. The rooms are nice since it is a relatively new hotel. Red silk sheets.

I asked the girl how much and she asked me why I was asking and then quoted 1000 Baht (going rate is 700). They had some good looking girls though

  July 2004:

Suffered the uninvited and ego sapping attractions of the oldest woman in the bar who would not go away even when given the cold shoulder treatment. Only option is to leave. Why on earth do the managers allow this to happen. Never again...even though it is my local short time bar.

Elephant Bar

Pratamnak Road: Soi 4

 Elephant Bar

Restaurant & bar. Restricted to seasonal opening in 2009

 Review Nov 2008: Motorway Service Station Style

I am occasional visitor to Soi 4. My last intended visit was curtailed when my mate said it looks more like a motorway service station than a bar or Thai restaurant so we ended up in the more traditionally Thai Cabbages and Condoms next door.

The latest time I stayed for a couple of drinks. For the cost conscience the bar does a perfectly good draft beer for 45 Baht in a decent sized glass so no probs there.

But really the bar no longer looks or feels like a bar any more, just a rather large eaterie.

  Review May 2008: Restaurant Prices

The food has always been pretty good, never been the cheapest, but decent enough quality and large portions and again my Beef hot pot didn't let me down, no complaints what so ever with the food.

Now the drink prices. They must have doubled the prices, a can of coke 60 baht and a bottle of Singha now selling at 95 baht. Doesn't even have air con.

  News Jan 2008: Restaurant Expansion

The bar area is now completely restaurant seating. Unfortunately it looks a little like motorway service area seating. There is a live band though, to up the stakes.

  News Aug 2007: More Works

The builders are in. The bar is being extended down one side. It looks like an auditorium like affair is being built in the bar area at the back

  News July 2006: Elephant A-GoGo

The bar has installed facilities for GoGo dancing. Reportedly open already but I haven't seen any reviews yet.

enjoy andre

Enjoy André

Thappraya Soi 6

 Enjoy André

Restaurant and bar

  Review from Dick Farang, September 2014:

Recently I have visited Enjoy Andre' restaurant several times.

It is located on Thappraya Road Soi 6 (on the way to Jomtien), a bit off the beaten track.

As it is partly open air, it is possible you have to move further inside when it starts raining.

The owners are André from Limburg province in Belgium, who lives in Thailand for 22 years, and Mai from Buriram, his wife of 18 years.

Apart from an ample a la carte choice, they also have a daily special, such as tomato soup-chicken-ice cream at 240 baht.

On Fridays they serve fresh sea fish.

On occasion they offer original Belgian witloof (chicory in good old English, endive in American) or Dutch maatjes (young immature raw herring; the Wikipedia definition soused herring is rather misleading).

All dishes are home-made to the best Belgian standards.

Their mashed potatoes (and hence their potato croquettes) for instance are made from boiled potatoes, milk, butter and egg yolks (very important) and spiced with nutmeg, pepper and salt.

In order to ensure continuity, André and Mai train their cooks themselves instead of hiring chefs.

Of course, they also offer typical Belgian desserts such as pancakes, Brussels waffles and dark or white chocolate mousse.

Since Mai Lu Si bar at their new location seem to have given up selling Belgian beers, Enjoy Andre' without a doubt has the broadest choice of Belgian beers in Pattaya nowadays.

The venue is well known in the Belgian, Dutch, German and Swiss communities of Pattaya.

Prices are very moderate for the quality offered.

Bottled Heineken 75 baht, most soups 80 baht, steaks from 285 baht, beef tenderloin (filet pur) from 350 baht, pancakes from 85 baht, waffles from 95 baht.

  Comment from Dick Farang, August 2014: Belgian Beer

On Thappraya Road Soi 6 (which is opposite Soi 5) I discovered a Belgian owned bar-restaurant Enjoy André with a broad selection of Belgian beers.

I paid 165 baht for a Palm Speciale.

Eye Candy Bar

Paratamnak
(between Soi 3 & 4)

 Eye Candy Bar

Coyote dancing bar new for 2011. Closed by June 2012. Tried again briefly a few months later but it didn't work out.

  Review June 2012: Closed

The main sign was on but there was no-one inside at 10pm. The dancing stage was moved to The Lounge a few doors down, but the dancers didn't follow

  Review March 2012: Unimpressed

Well it didn't take long for the initial enthusiasm to wear off. I have tried 2 or 3 times since the early days and the girls have become somewhat unfriendly.

In typical coyote style, the girls are in charge of the customers experience. If a good looking young customer comes in, the girls fall over themselves to oblige. Anyone outside of the desirable zone gets ignored.

On the positive side, the girls are a very attractive bunch with not an oldie in sight. And the bar is still worth a try for those that may fit the girl's spec.

  Review December 2011: Impressed

Not quite a new bar, but has just recently changed format to a coyote dancing bar organised very much like a GoGo.

It is located just a few paces of Paratamanak Road a few metres from the corner of Soi 4. It is in a square with a large Harley shop. The bar has no welcome staff, nor open sign, but if the neon sign is on and it is between 6pm and 2am then it is open.

It is a small single unit bar with a central stage. Either side of the stage are 3 sofas to seat 3. This probably means that the comfortable maximum is 12 customers. There are a few stools at the bar at the back though.

There were 12 girls on duty of which 3 were dancing at a time. Not a bad ratio for the size of the bar. The girls were a surprising attractive crew for an off beat location. The girls were all dressed in coyote attire of shorts, top and bra. There was a theme which I think was probably meant to be naval.

I am not usually a fan of coyote dancing bars but I found this more like a GoGo bar where the girls were wearing a little too much. These were not agency girls, nor girls likely to be sponsored, or not interested in barfines etc. they were regular girls making a good effort for lady drinks and barfines.

The mamasang was friendly and helpful. In fact I found the bar to be well run and a very pleasant place for a drink and a chat with the friendly girls.

And just as the night was drawing to a close the girls were getting a little merry and a couple dressed down from coyote to GoGo.

Bottled beer was 70 Baht, lady drinks 120 Baht, early barfines 700, and late barfines 500.

   News from Ishi, March 2015: Re-opening

The bar is set to re-open with a party on 4th April.

  News February 2015: 30 Days

The bar has fallen victim to a 30 day police closure.

  Review from Dick Farang, February 2015: In the wake of a raid

Last Tuesday around 5 p.m. the gate was closed at Heaven Gentlemen's Lounge (previously Times Lounge) on Soi Kasetsin Soi 11 although I had seen three farangs entering just before I parked my car.

Suddenly the (electric) gate was opened and it was closed again after I got in.

(At that moment I was not aware of the police raid on the previous day).

Inside there was no music and no air conditioning. I only saw about six passive chicks and the three farangs, probably Scandinavians.

When I asked what was going on, I was told the manager was sick. Perhaps the manager's illness was related to the police raid on the previous evening.

Anyway, there were much fewer than 100 patrons and by far nobody looked younger than 20 years.

When I left the gate was opened and immediately closed again.

Bottled Heineken still 90 baht.

  Review from Dick Farang, November 2014: An unwanted buffet

Heaven Gentlemen's Lounge, previously Times Lounge, is located on Soi Kasetsin Soi 11.

(Soi Kasetsin is the first soi past Soi Phratamnak Soi 2 when coming from Central Jomtien and is heading down to Cosy Beach; I am not sure if it is the same soi as Soi Phratamnak Soi 1.)

Soi Kasetsin Soi 11 is a deserted street with a lot of parking space.

At the entrance of Heaven Gentlemen's Lounge there are several stairs to climb.

This club is built around an outdoor swimming pool.

When I arrived there was one other farang, perhaps the owner.

There were a dozen of girls in all shapes and sizes, all of them probably freelancers and over thirty years old, nothing to write home about.

They were all but communicative, shy and apparently not interested in the real thing, but only in lady drinks and 100-baht notes.

None of the girls stayed outside (at the swimming pool area) and many were smoking cigarettes.

I saw an ad for German beer and some copies of the German-language magazine Der Farang .

There was a small buffet (on a Tuesday) and with my first and only beer I was charged 200 baht for food, which I refused to pay.

If I want to eat I go to a decent restaurant and pay the right price.

If I want to enjoy a buffet, I go to Cherry's Restaurant on Third Road where I get a splendid buffet at 399 baht (on Wednesdays and Saturdays).

Bottled Heineken at Heaven Gentlemen's Lounge is 90 baht.

 Jade Club

Short time bar in an attractive garden/swimming pool setting. There is a Wednesday buffet for 200 Baht which is free for customers spending 200 Baht on drinks.

  Review from Dick Farang, August 2015: A tickle unfancied

Jade House off Thappraya Road is still German-owned, but no longer by Gerd from Berlin.

What I always find weird at Jade House is that the idle girls are sitting outside (not many top models among them to use an understatement), but that you have to get into the lounge bar to order your drink and that you are followed inside by a girl who seldom tickles your fancy.

Barfine (room included) still 300 baht ST with the girls expecting 1,000 baht ST.

The en-suite hotel rooms are rather small, but very nice with a big mirror on the wall and a smaller one on the ceiling and several erotic paintings, the kind you see everywhere around in painting shops.

I was told that the salaried girls have to be there from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. and are paid 7,000 baht a month with a day off every 15 days.

Bottled Heineken 90 baht, lady drinks 110 baht, both up 10 baht.

  Review from Dick Farang, November 2014: Intimate Corners

Jade House is located in a neglected village between Thappraya Road Soi 7 and Thappraya Road Soi 9. At the entrance of this village are two arches with an abandoned sentry box. Inside the village is first on the left-hand side Refresh Fitness Club and then on the right-hand side Jade House. (On Thappraya Road there is a big sign for Refresh Fitness Club.) The entrance to Jade House is a small sub-soi between two buildings.

On a German-language forum I read that Jade House is (or has been) owned by a German named Gerd.

The original name was Jade House Berlin (see Google Streetview).

This club consists of a dark lounge bar with some intimate corners and a rather big garden surrounded by hotel rooms with a de facto unused swimming pool, a small fish pond and numerous Buddhist statuettes.

Most girls were flocking together outside near the entrance and seemed all to be over thirty years old, but they were friendly enough.

They are all freelancers who get a share of 40 baht for a lady drink and 100 baht for a barfine and expect a fee of 1,000 baht for ST.

Barfine, room included, 300 baht.

I was recognised by Taa, a threeholer who used to dance many moons ago at Catz A-GoGo on Soi Arab (one of the previous incarnations of Pe Pe Club). I had to admit that for her 35 years she still looked very good. (Those Thai girls really have elephant memories, or at least very strong visual memories.)

Bottled Heineken 80 baht, lady drinks (apple juice on the rocks) 100 baht.

  Review from Ishi, September 2014: Once a Hidden Gem

I visited at 4:30pm.
I saw about 15 ladies in the bar and courtyard.

Everything is almost the same for 5 years.
Opens everyday 1pm-8pm.
Water 60B.
Heineken 80B.
Lady drink 100B.
Bar Fines 300B(including the ST room).
Food ticket 200B (on Wednesdays only. Including 2 drinks).

  Review from Pattaya Secrets, November 2011: Not So Good

Now 1000 Baht for the girl and 300 for the room. Beer is 80 Baht. Pretty much the same prices as similar venues, but Jade is the loser in terms of quality of the girls.

  Review from Pattaya Secrets, April 2010: Still Good

Still good compliments for the BBQ garden, pool and the rooms. Mentioned that the all in price was 1000 Baht.

 Kinnaree Place

Afternoon short time bar billed as a gentleman's club. Closed as Kinnaree Palace in summer 2009. Re-opened in march 2010 under new management and a slightly new name.

350 Baht for room, 1000 Baht for girl. Beers at 90 Baht, Thai spirits at 70 Baht. Beware of expensive Lady Tequilas at 140 Baht but normal lady drinks are 125 Baht. There's a happy hour until 3pm when beers are 50 Baht.

There's a rather expensive 300 Baht barbecue and entertainment on Wednesday and Saturday. The 300 Baht seems to be added to the bill whether you eat or not. Free for drinks bills over 600 Baht.

  Review March 2016: Girls with natural monopolies

Kinnaree is a very convenient resting stop on some of my walking routes about town. However I generally give it a wide berth due to simply not liking crowds. I am also not keen on the the bar adding an expensive meal charge to the bill and then me having to explain that I didn't eat anything and would like it removed. However the crowds are testimony to it being a very good bar and to the fact that the meal price system doesn't actually cause problems.

As explained above I generally drop by in the evening on non-buffet days. Although many of the girls are on their way from tea time, there are still a a fair few that wait until the customers depart.

The girls are very good at circulating around the bar seeking out customers that may be interested in their services. However saying that, the girls are freelancers and don't get much out of a chat and a ladydrink, so are quickly circulating again if need be.

The girls are friendly and the drinks are reasonably priced, so encouraging the good atmosphere that prevails.

Actually the crowds also point to a few economic lessons for Pattaya. The bar provides a very popular respite from the 2000 Baht short times + 1000 baht barfines that prevail in the nighttime economy. Locals in the know can get similar (but not quite) the top quality of Walking Street for 1000 + 350 at Kinnaree.

Another economic lesson is that some services tend to become natural monopolies. The guys go to Kinnaree because there are many girls, and the girls go because there are crowds of guys. Several bars around the area have tried to grab a bit of the action, but have always failed to make any impression on Kinnaree's monopoly.

So I rather reckon that Kinnaree will be popular for some time to come. If you want plenty of girls to choose from, in a luxurious environment with very reasonable prices then Kinnaree is a pretty safe bet, but don't forget that there are many many in Pattaya who agree.

  Review from Dick Farang, February 2015: Again very crowded

As usual Kinnaree Place on sub-soi 4 between Soi Phratamnak Soi 4 and Soi Phratamnak Soi 5 was very crowded.

However, that does not always mean crowded with the right people. After some pushy fuglies I was approached by an old drunken fatty celebrating her 48th birthday. After a while she got completely naked (in her birthday suit) and it was not a pleasant sight. She wanted me to shag her three holes for free in her room on Soi 4 off Jomtien Beach Road, she said. She got angry when I declined.

Bottled Heineken still 90 baht.

  Review from Dick Farang, November 2014: Very crowded

Kinnaree Place, previously Kinnaree Palace, is located on the fourth sub-soi between Soi Phratamnak Soi 4 and Soi Phratamnak Soi 5.

At the other side of the sub-soi is a big car park and near the entrance motorbike taxi boys are offering their services.

As I had already guessed at the car park, Kinnaree Place was very crowded with tens of punters and tens of girls.

The music being played was rock and not too loud.

The girls were around the thirty years mark, with most younger ones being overweight. Compared to other gentlemen's clubs they seemed more hardened and more mercenary.

They are all freelancers who get a share of 55 baht for a lady drink (cider) and (only) 70 baht for a barfine and expect a fee of 1,000 baht for ST.

Barfine, room included, 350 baht.

BEWARE: automatic tipping: small change is not returned spontaneously.

Bottled Heineken 90 baht, lady drinks (cider) 125 baht.

  Review from Mike of stayinginthailand.com, February 2013: Hooked

I was blown away by Kinnaree. I'm not a huge fan of the gentlemen's clubs, but I heard this place was getting better looking girls than ever before so I gave it a shot. There were a lot of cute girls and I'm a hard grader.

The Western food buffet on Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday is worth 500 baht alone, and as long as you spend 500 baht while you're there the buffet is free. I had whisky and coke's for 80 baht and lady drinks were 120 baht.

There were about 35 girls, and during the weekends there are a lot of guys so it does require a bit of patience if you are picky about the girl you want to speak with. Otherwise decent looking girls will seek you out if you're alone. The short time room rate is 350 baht for an hour and I believe the majority of the girls will go with you for 1,000.

The buffet starts around 3:00PM and most of the girls show up around then, they have to stay until 7PM, but they'll stay with you until it closes at 10PM if you like. Girls were passing out their phone #'s early and often, and it seemed very easy to arrange a night date with any of them. The place really clears out around 6PM, but it's very busy between 4PM-6PM on the buffet days. Best to get there early like 3PM so you can get a seat and first pick. Otherwise get there around 5:15PM while there is still some food left and while the place begins to thin out so you have your pick.

  Review March 2012: High Momentum

Kinnaree seems to have hit the right notes somewhere along the line, it gets absolutely packed. Especially at the weekends or perhaps on buffet days.

One day I poked my head round the door and there wasn't a free seat anywhere in the bar. Thankfully there are a large number of girls to match the number of customers. There are quite a range of girls in attendance and a fair few of them would be regularly partaking in short times.

Having this level of momentum blows away the local competition. The large number of girls makes it so much more likely to find one that fits the bill.

On my last visit in early evening the bar was winding down quite early with many girls going home from 6-7pm. However there were still enough doing a good job circulating for me to be able to shoo away a couple of oldies who tried their luck, knowing that more attractive girls would soon follow. As was the case.

The surroundings are top notch and the prices are reasonable. Perhaps the main downside is when it gets too crowded.

And just as a note, a kinnaree is one of Thailand's many mythical half man, half beasts. In this case, half lady and half swan. She is renowned for her dance, song and poetry, and is a traditional symbol of feminine beauty, grace and accomplishment.

 La Cuisine au Beurre

  Review from Dick Farang, May 2016: In the Buttery Quarter

On the soi right of the TukCom building (Soi Day Night 2) I discovered a good and not too expensive restaurant: La Cuisine au Beurre.

The name means something like the butter-based (as opposite to olive-oil-based) cooking and was the title of a 1963 French comic film with Fernandel and Bourvil.

When coming from Pattayatai it is the first restaurant on the right-hand side of this soi and it is located on the corner of a narrow arcade that leads to Soi Day Night.

The restaurant is nicely laid out with comfortable tables and chairs and nice table cloths and napkins.

The toilets are in the arcade at the end of the building, past the open kitchen.

They have an elaborate set menu at 350 baht with a choice between four or five starters, four or five main dishes, seven or eight desserts and coffee or tea.

The bread consists of some slices of bâtard with a portion of salted Allowrie butter.

With the main dish you can choose one of about eight different side dishes.

One of the desserts is a piece of cheese to be chosen from a tray.

(Keep in mind that cheese is rather expensive in Thailand.)

Among the à la carte options I saw tournedos Rossini at 620 baht, not too expensive if it is the real thing.

La Cuisine au Beurre seems to be popular with Belgians, Germans and Swiss.

(Off Pattaya South Road near TukCom)

Le Bordeaux

French bar and restaurant

  Review from Dick Farang, June 2016: Very well cooked

On the soi right of the TukCom building (Soi Day Night 2) I tried a French-style restaurant: Le Bordeaux. When coming from Pattayatai it is on a corner on the left-hand side of this soi towards the end of the soi. It is more or less opposite the Pattaya branch of the Swiss-owned Grottino bakery. It is also on the same soi as La Cuisine au Beurre.

In this same soi are several other restaurants that often get good comments on internet fora, but in my opinion are not so good. One, I will not name, is even really bad.

Le Bordeaux is very spacious and consists of an open bar/lounge section on the corner and a fully air-conditioned restaurant section. It is nicely laid out with comfortable seating.

They have a set menu at 390 baht with a choice between three starters, four main dishes and three desserts. It is also possible to take two courses only at 350 baht.

The bread consists of some crispy slices of bâtard with fresh salted butter.

Everything was very well cooked and their profiteroles were outstanding.

At the beginning of the meal guests get a complimentary amuse-bouche and at the end a chocolate.

Their most expensive à la carte item is Dover sole meunière at 980 baht.

In their wine cellar fridges I saw bottles of Sauternes, but I did not enquire about the price.

Update from Dick Farang, July 2016: Price increase

The price of a set menu at Le Bordeaux on Soi Day Night 2 has gone up from 390 to 490 baht. The existing price gap with the competitors on the same street (320-350 baht for a set menu of three courses) has increased.

I suppose they want to concentrate their efforts on à la carte diners, but nowadays in Pattaya (and certainly in this lowest of low seasons) big spenders are few and far between. I also doubt if they can survive on the local gay community as on my latest visit I only saw straight couples and singles.

On certain internet fora there is a member gtruch who behaves as if he is one of the owners of Le Bordeaux or at least connected to them and who is trying to discredit other places on the same street. That uncongenial behaviour gives me a very unpleasant feeling and, although I am not a big fan of the restaurant concerned, I feel now like avoiding Le Bordeaux

The Lion Pub

Soi Kopai Soi 10
(Corner of Regional Land Road)

lionpubpattaya.com

 The Lion Pub

Sports bar. Open afternoon and evening with a few girls on hand.

  Review from Dick Farang, June 2016: Taking a lion's share

The Lion Pub is located on the corner of Soi Kopai Soi 10 and Regional Land Road.  (On some printed maps this road is still shown as Soi 17, whereas in fact it is PATTAYASAISONG 16 and its extension across Third Road.)

At my first and only visit The Lion Pub looked surprisingly spacious, but also very deserted.

Their prices for breakfasts, snacks and simple pub grub are a lot higher than what you usually see in Pattaya.

That being said the high tables and bar stools do not seem the most comfortable seating when eating.

Apart from the regular waitresses there were also some old and ugly "hostesses" rented from an "agency" on ten-day contracts, who were paid 400 baht a day.

I was told that The Lion Pub has ST rooms upstairs at 500 baht and that those older birds expect 1,500 (!) baht ST for themselves.

Bottled Heineken 95 baht.

  October 2005:

The way this bar is run is weird even by Thai/Pattaya standards. The attention you get seems to depend on whether the boss is in the bar when you drop in. No boss there today so the only entertainment I had was scratching my balls on an otherwise empty plastic sofa and gawking at a muted TV. The ten or so girls present were chatting among themselves, smoking and mobiling.

  September 2005:

Some attractive, well built and friendly girls. Their ST room/shower is the best I have seen in a long, long while.

  2004:

A lot of fun on a party night. About 20 mostly attractive girls keep the customers entertained by party games and dancing.

Perhaps they spend too much time entertaining and not quite enough chatting with the customers.

On a subsequent non-party night I was treated like a leper.

 Montana Bar

New for December 2014. Early reports suggest that there is a little fun in the bar along the lines of Telephone Bar, Carre Blanc and Club 4.

  Review from Dick Farang, July 2016: Back open

Montana Bar and Lounge on Regional Land Road has reopened under the same management, but is now an open-fronted bar with furniture and a pool table on the terrace.

Inside nothing seems to have changed. There were three or four girls only and one other customer.

One of the girls was Ae, a not so young spinner with minimal English, a perfect body and a clean-shaven beaver. To be honest I prefer a more mature girl with the body of a 20-years-old to a young fatty with the body of a 40-years-old. That being said, Ae, who had started only some weeks ago, was very enthusiastic and still genuinely horny.

Montana still rents out rooms and has ST rooms upstairs (included in the 400 baht barfine).

Bottled Heineken still 99 baht, lady drinks (cola on the rocks) 130 baht.

  News from Dick Farang, June 2016: Taking a break

Montana Bar and Lounge on Regional Land Road is closed from 31st May until 30th June and to reopen on 1st July.

  From Dick Farang, February: 2016: A new ploy?

Yesterday shortly before 9 p.m. I visited the gentlemen's club Montana Bar & Lounge.

I was the only customer and apart from the fatties there was an older tall lady who took my fancy. We agreed on ST upstairs, went to room 6 on the second floor, showered and started cuddling on the bed.

Suddenly the girl reached for her mobile and said: Police come. At first I did not grasp what she was talking about because of her limited English. Then she insisted on putting our clothes again and going downstairs.

For me, at that point, the momentum was completely lost anyway. At the bar I finished my drink at my ease, awaiting what was going to happen. She asked me lukewarmly if I wanted to come back the next day. No police showed up, only a bunch of drunken frogs, one of them stripping naked.

I am still puzzled: did she suddenly change her mind for some reason? Anyway, she will have got her share of the lady drink (130 baht) and the barfine (400 baht).

  Review by Dick Farang, March 2015: Thriving

Since the closure of Thai Fun Club (all signs removed) and KIDS VIP (banner SALE on the closed gate), both on Soi Khopai Soi 10, the last remaining girlie bar in that area, Montana Bar and Lounge on Regional Land Road, is thriving.

On Wednesdays there is a non-mandatory buffet at 100 baht and on that occasion the curtained-off area with sofas and coffee tables left of the entrance door is open.

On each of my visits their line-up seemed to have improved.

The uniforms have been dropped however and replaced by plain clothes. One of the better looking girls is 35-year-old Kaan from Buriram, a mother of two who used to work at Billabong Bar on Soi LK Metro and who is slim with a nice modest bosom and an unshaven beaver. She did not have tattoos, but she did have a navel piercing. Her Thai boyfriend is a 23-year-old serviceman, whom she makes believe she only serves drinks.

The girls at Montana Bar and Lounge work in two shifts (one until 8 p.m. and one from 7 p.m. on) and are freelancers who are paid 300 baht per day for showing up. They also get 40 baht per 130-baht lady drink and 100 baht per barfine (300 baht in a curtained-off area and 400 baht in a room upstairs). They expect 500 baht for a BJ and 1,000 baht for FS.

The building is a double shophouse and each side still has its own stairwell. There are lots of rooms on several floors and the rooms are very spacious with en-suite bathrooms and lounges with sofas and a coffee table. I think this are the same rooms that are rented out at 690 baht per night.

Bottled Heineken at Montana Bar and Lounge is still 99 bath.

  Review from Dick Farang, February 2015: Curtains

At Montana Bar and Lounge on Regional Land Road there were fewer girls now, but the quality had slightly improved.

Two of them were very tall, albeit no ladyboys. One of those two was 38-year old Lek (small, little), not a very suitable name.

I noticed that there was also a curtained-off area left of the entrance door and opposite the bar. Personally I do not like the idea of those curtained-off areas and of hearing noises from the other side. I would even prefer sex in a completely open area.

Bottled Heineken at Montana Bar and Lounge had increased from 90 baht to 99 baht.

  Review from Dick Farang, February 2016: Ambition

The roadworks on Thepprasit Road Soi 7 are over now, but Rioja gentlemen's club is still a disaster.

When I arrived there were three other punters, but they soon left.

I saw seven or eight sub-average females who looked very bored.

I was approached by a 34-year-old shapeless fatty from Ayudhya with two sons. She said she had been working at Johannesburg in South Africa for over a year and had been fucking eight negroes a day at 500 rand a pop and she wanted to go to Singapore where she thought she could handle thirteen small dicks a day. Not my cup of tea.

Just like at Le Rouge (previously Saxo) the clumsy swivel stools are all but comfortable.

Bottled Heineken still 80 baht.

  Review from Dick Farang, November 2014: Old Fashioned

Rioja, a gentlemen's club named after a wine region in northern Spain, is located on a narrow soi on the left-hand side near the end of Thepprasit Road Soi 7.

Due to the never ending roadworks on Thepprasit Road Soi 7 it is better to get there from the Soi Wat Boon Kanchana side.

The premises are shaped like a Spanish style villa.

In the bar area there are high tables with swivel stools and also some sofas with coffee tables.

The music was not too loud.

The hostesses were exclusively freelancers, who get a share of 50 baht per barfine. There were fat ones and (very) old ones. Several of them appeared to have come from the defunct Sapphire Lodge on Phratamnak Hill.

Some groups of elderly gentlemen seem to gather there only for chatting.

Barfine (ST room included) 350 baht.

Bottled Heineken 80 baht.

 Prices from Pattaya Secrets, June 2010

Room 350, ST 1000. Lady drinks 100 Baht. However there were reports of girls asking 1500-2000 ST.

  Review from Pattaya Addicts Jan 2008: Chilled

A small bar on the corner, a beer bar with seats inside and out, dark inside with memorabilia scattered around the wall.

It can get a bit cramped, as it only hold about 20 people, but there are around 10 or so girls working daily, of variable quality.

Beer is reasonable and its a chilled place to hang out.

  Review from Pattaya Secrets, June 2007: Good Atmosphere

Some very nice girls, usually 4-6 on duty. Drinks are cheap, the atmosphere good and girls friendly. The music is good. Room/barfines are 300 with 700 short time.

I think it's well worth a visit and plan to go back again soon.

  Review March 2007: Soho Walk Up?

Good to see a new short time bar opening in an area of town without so many bars.

From a UK slant, the name Soho, does little for me except conjure up an image of clip joints and establishments best avoided.

Still I braved the prejudice and found a pretty standard beer bar layout with bar stools rather than the far more inviting sofa affairs. The bar is long and narrow and decorated with many pictures from London.

The bar could do with a little privacy perhaps by closing the main door. But then again, as there is no air con, then perhaps it would get unpleasantly hot.

Even after chatting for a while I found it a little hard to believe that short time was the aim of the bar. None of the girls chatting to customers appeared to be getting down to anything very sexy. In fact the girl chatting to me was hardly what you could call attentive or enticing.

Other little things to iron out were that the music was a little loud and that the best looking girls were baggsed by the owner and friends. There were plenty of girls to go around though.

Bottled beer was reasonable at 65 Baht, soft drinks were 50 Baht & lady drinks 105 Baht. There is also Tiger draft beer. I didn't ask about the short time prices as didn't want to give my inattentive drinking partner false hope.

Still early days but I rather suspect that the hardened short timers will stick with the more discreet and comfortable Jade Club just up the road.

My drinking friend did make one good point: Do you know any short time bars on a main road? Made me ponder a while but there is the Buffalo bar on 3rd Road, albeit set back a bit.

Impressed by the design and comfort, its a very nice bar .

  Review April 2007: Pirates & Bras

Tigglebitties is a large beer bar with plenty of stools at the bar and and plenty more dotted around the many tables and dancing poles.

The decor is naval and pirates complete with hanging bras, presumably the pirates booty. The bar is only partially enclosed from the street so there is no feeling of privacy.

There were several girls on hand, of which a couple were attractive. But they did not make the slightest effort to get any better acquainted beyond what would you like to drink?

Pleasant enough but surely a little disappointing to those reading the promotional material. This suggests that the bar sees itself as The Buffalo Bar but better.

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
