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.

Disco opened on 16th March 2014. It is associated with Lima Lima. Beers 75 Baht and local spirits 90 Baht, but probably opening offer.

  News June 2014:

The disco was closed for a few days possibly due to police action. It was then signed as a replacement venue for Lucifer's which suffered a substantial police closure to thuggery by the club's bouncers.

Abbe's Bar

Abbe's Bar

Walking Street

 Abbe's Bar

Beer bar. Be warned that the lady drinks are extortionate at 160 Baht (Nov 2007)

  Review from Pattaya Secrets, August 2008: Speaking Volumes

Abbe's Bar is great for chilling out and they play some great music at high volume. Friendly girls apologise for the 160 Baht lady drinks and you meet loads of people from all over the world. It ends up being like your local pub back home after a week.

  Review 2007: Footy

Specialises in televised football with large screens and large speakers to actually hear the commentary. The decor is based on football with pennants, shirts and flags displayed on the walls and ceilings

Absolut

Soho Square
Walking Street

 Absolut

Another cold sounding bar in Soho Square. First impressions have been based on the price of drinks. 160-180 Baht for bottled beer and 240 Baht for spirits with mixer. It didn't last the 2008/9 winter.

Apple Pub

Walking Street

 Apple Pub

Pub, coyote club and gym. A new incarnation of the venue that was previously, the 19th Hole, Goodfellas, and  Play. Opened on 14th May 2014. The bar is part of Tony's nightlife and gym portfolio.

  News from Ishi, June 2014: Re-opened

The bar closed following a police raid but re-opened in the first week of July

  Review from Dick Farang, May 2014: Once only visit

There were a noisy Thai band and six bikini dancers.

Several people were smoking hookahs inside.

Some dangerous steps inside.

Male waiters and a toilet boy.

Bottled Heineken was 170 (one hundred and seventy) baht; no check bins.

I saw a lot of Thai females inside (freelancers ?); I doubt if they pay the same prices.

Not for repeat business.

The pub looks to be part of Tony's empire. When Apple Pub was still open I have seen Tony pacing up and down in the middle of Walking Street in front of Apple Pub the way he usually does in front of Abyzz. Moreover, on Sukhumvit Road across from Pattayatai there is a hoarding that used to promote Tony's Fitness and now advertises Apple Pub.

  Review from Ishi, May 2014: Dance floor, live band, coyotes, a gym, and a hotel

The bar has dance floor with a live band. I saw just 3 coyotes in the bar. And it's impossible to take away the coyotes (According to the manager).

The bar also has a lot of fitness machines on the left side (Walking Street side), but nobody was in the gym area.

They hope to attract a lot of freelancers. So the drink prices are not expensive for example MAI-TAI, Margarita and Sex on the beach are just 40B. Sheesha is 120B.

After couple of months, the hotel is set to re-open on the upper floor. It will be possible to use this for short time rooms.

Music bar

  Prices, October 2013: Prices

200 Baht for a bottle of beer.

  Review from Malcolm, January 2010: Prices

Good music, but 130B for a bottle of Singha, ouch. Only had the one

  Review June 2009: More Tables

The bar has changed format a little by putting tables on the dance floor. Said to be a cheaper licensing regime for bars without a dance floor

  Review from pattayasecrets.com February 2009: Price Hike

It is reported on the forums that the bar has come under Russian influence perhaps explaining the hike in beer prices to 140 Baht per bottle.

Still crowded though with crammed in seating and aging free lancers. Must be doing something right though. Especially if they can get away with a toilet fee.

  Warning Dec 2006: Check you Bin

The place was busy, and bustling and the waitresses were rushed off their feet, however it appears that almost anyone can order a drink and have it directed to someone else's tab, and if you don't notice, that then becomes your tab.

  February 2006:

The Thai girls really love this place as the band often plays Issan love songs which they really get into. It's certainly not an ear blasting go-go or disco and would probably be best described as a cabaret venue. I really enjoyed my visits here as I could always have a conversation with the the lady I was with, but I must admit to cringing a few times when the resident Thai band attempted a cover version of a well known western song - Their rendition of the Beatles "Hey Jude" is just one memory that comes to mind

  December 2005:

For the older members or for those who like older mature ladies. The music not bad but not load like it should be for a disco. The ladies are performers in the bedroom!!!!

 The Best Bar

Beer bar opened June 2006, previously Stoney's. Closed in September 2014.

  Review by Steve, Feb 2007: Latent Heat of Fusion

Formerly known as ‘Stoney’s’, this bar was sold to a Thai lady in May 2006. This is the same lady who own the other two nondescript bar beers on the corners of the cross formed by the junction of Walking Street with the alleyway leading to Happy-a-GoGo and Living Dolls. Unfortunately, she has managed to work some of that ol’ Thai magic and convert Stoney’s, which was previously a friendly, homely sort of place into yet another nondescript bar beer, complete with a coat of cheap and nasty Jack Daniels gloss black paint and a ‘Jack Lives Here’ sign.

The bar used to have a system with two different categories of ladies working there – the service ladies and the entertainment ladies. The former brought you drinks, while the latter would chat with you in exchange for a lady drink. This system worked very well, and made Stoney’s my favourite watering hole, but it has been abandoned by the new owner in favour of the more usual service-ladies-only system. As long as they are not busy, you can still chat with the waitresses, but you can’t count on their company unless you bar fine them.

Another great feature of Stoney’s was the draft beer served in frozen double-walled glasses, so that the beer actually got colder as you drank it. Perfect for a sweaty tropical evening. Of coursem, they still have draft beer, and they even have a few of the glasses left, but they are kept with the rest of the beer nowadays and so are no longer frozen and thus don’t ‘work’. I’ve tried explaining about the latent heat of fusion to the staff on several occasions, but they just think I’m totally mad now.

The bar also used to have its own toilet, but the new owner quickly did away with this nice facility as it costs money to run of course. So now you have to join the other punters queuing for a pee in the 5 Baht bogs across the way.

When the bar changed hands, they fired all the staff, so all the ladies I knew were scattered to the four corners (literally, one lady ended up in Chiangmai!). I still drop by occasionally for a drink, but it is a shadow of its former self. If you didn’t know it in its heyday though, you would probably think that it is a decent spot for a drink.

Drinks are 140 Baht for spirits and 95 Baht for soft drinks. Bottled beer 120-135 Baht

There is a happy hour until 10pm with draft beer at 50 Baht and other drinks at 100 Baht.

 Candy Shop

Bar with live music and dancing opened June 2006

  Review from Pattaya-Addicts, August 2010: Hang Out

Candy Shop's place in the nightlife roster is from 1-3am when the beer bar girls and Soi 6 girls cluster until they move on to Marine and Insomnia.

The music is R&B and Hip Hop and the drinks are around the 150 Baht mark. Breezers 180 Baht.

  Review from Rick of pattaya-discover.com, March 2010: Hang Out

We stopped at Candy Shop for a drink, and to listen to some live music. Thai girls love to hang out at this venue. I spotted a few young girls from Soi 6 bars, who had stopped by for an after work drink. This is the place they come to hook up with their friends and drink the Thai girls favourite beer, San Miguel Light.

The beers here are Bt 150, and the selection of beers is very limited. Soft drinks Bt 120

  Review from Pattaya Pages, July 2006: Hip Hop Shop

Hip-hop house band downstairs, very expensive 140/150 baht beer, freelancers, but not so many as Lucifers or Tony's. I always went in with a girl...nice place to dance or hang out for a few drinks. Not as crowded as Lucifers or as dark as Tony's.

Caramel

Bali Hai
(South end of Walking Street)

 Caramel

Russian high end cabaret show bar. Bottled beer is 350 Baht and lady drinks are 400 Baht. 100 Baht tips are mandatory for any sexy dancing happening nearby. Changed its strap line to Restaurant and Gentlemen's Club in mid 2012. May have been a last ditch attempt. There are reports that the venue has become Rex Nightclub

Carousel Beer Bar

Walking Street: Soi Diamond

 Carousel Beer Bar

Beer bar. Beware of prices such as 145 Baht for vodka-lippo

  January 2006:

Many Gogo bars have a nearby similarly named beer bar. I don't if there is any ownership connection though. Maybe it is just a way to hijack some of the trade from the more widely publicised GoGos.

This bar in the central isle of Soi Diamond has the unique selling point of the circular bar being mounted on a slowly rotating carousel.

This surely allows a good view of the comings and goings of many of Pattaya's busiest GoGos.

Beer is reasonably priced and the girls are happy enough to play games, both on and off premises.

There is also a stationary drinking area for those that prefer solid ground.

 Casino Club

Coyote Dancing Bar. Seems to do well out of keeping drinks prices low compared with the late night norm. Bar fine is 100 Baht. Lady drinks 140 baht. Beers are reasonable around the 90 Baht mark

   Review by Pattaya Ghost June 2008: Not a Pickup Joint

Started more than two years ago, Casino was the first of the coyote bars and still packs in the crowds late every night. Khun Tee, who also owns Diamond a Go Go just down the soi, designed Casino with two floors, intending to have coyotes downstairs and a disco upstairs. The second floor never took off, however, so now everyone crowds into the smallish ground floor. It has a high square stage in the middle with room for four dancers, plus the occasional Thai guy on bongo drums. The entire place is well done out, with a cards and casino theme.

The only gambling you’ll do there, however, is trying to actually get one of the very tidy coyotes to pay attention to you. Casino is definitely not a single-man’s pickup joint. Most dancers rush off stage to towel off after their set and tend to gaggle together in the corners rather than mix with customers.

The first year, in fact, Tee didn’t allow the coyotes to be barfined. If you wanted to see if the object of your desire could perform the same moves in your hotel room you needed to wait until 4 a.m. or so when the bar closed for her to go with you.

By popular demand, however, barfines were instituted at 1,000 baht, the first Pattaya bar to go that high (and, sadly, not the last). But considering these woman are all under 30 and dance (aerobics style) 30 minutes an hour for about 8 hours a day, they are definitely fit. You’d be hard pressed to find any who rated under an 8 on most people’s scales.

The music in Casino is classic coyote: techno, house and a smattering of remixed hip-hop, all played at levels that make conversation difficult. Drinks are reasonably priced at around 110 baht for mixed drinks and 95 baht for bottled beer. Casino is also a late-night bar and doesn’t really get started until after midnight.

  News March 2007: Bar Fine

The bar fine in Casino was reported to be 1250 Baht

  Review Dec 2006: Popular

I was dragged in by a party of girls and it really is not my scene, but I have to say that the bar is very popular.

There's plenty of dancing going on onstage and off, plenty of customers and plenty of coyote girls eager to play hostess whilst waiting for their dancing stint.

The music was loud, but people seemed happy enough and could just about converse enough to get by.

Maybe the key to its success is that it is one of the few bars that cater for groups of friends rather that the gogo majority which cater more for singletons. Also the drinks prices are standard Walking Street prices as opposed to the exorbitant prices charged by some of the other late night dancing venues. Drinks around 95 Baht

  Review from Pattaya Secrets, May 2006: Bloody expensive

We decided to check out Casino Club for one, famous last words as we stumbled out of there at 3am. Did have great fun in there, and some sexy girls. Bloody expensive though as I discovered when I paid my 1000 baht Barfine...

Great night, really enjoyed the atmosphere in Casino.

Review from Kevin, February 2006: Cool!

The Club has been done out very well indeed!, the decor is very, very tidy!, there is a square raised podium in the middle of the floor where the dancers perform, normally 4 of them, one facing each corner of the club!, one I recognized from Superbaby, another from Paris A-gogo .

Sometimes one of the guys gets up and plays a small set of drums to the music , the girls love it!, and it gets the crowd going .

It is not the biggest place , but god I was surprised how nice it was!, the main hostess is a darling, always comes and says hello!, will always buy a round for those that stay and drink a bit! and really makes you feel welcome!. The girls cannot be barfined, but I was seeing one of them!, only problem I had to wait until 4am until she finished!

All in all I found the place a breath of fresh air!, great look, great sound, and a really nice bunch! I normally live in Heaven above, Living Doll 1 & 2 , Happy or Peppermint, I am a A-gogo lover!, but this was cool!

  News rom Dick Farang, October 2014: Closed

The bar was closed on 5th October 2014.

  News from Ishi, September 2014: Coyotes check out

The bar has given up the idea of coyote dancing and has reverted to being a plain beer bar.

Drink prices have been reduced accordingly.

  Review from Dick Farang, September 2014: A Short Look

Check in Bar is a small bar on Soi 15.

I talked to the greeter who has been a waitress at several gogos, among them Spanky's I think.

She confirmed the prices: bottled Heineken 145 baht, lady drink 150 baht and barfine a steep 800 baht.

As I did not feel like losing time and money, she offered me to take a short look. It was very dark inside, but on the left-hand side I could distinguish a small stage with two chrome poles and two fully dressed dancers on it, a chubby one and a fat one.

  News from Ishi, August 2014: Checking In

Check in Bar is located on Soi 15 next door to Angelwitch show bar.

It opened as a beer bar in the last year, (I think). Bar fines were then 300B. It changed to a coyote bar on the 1st August,  and bar fines are now 800B.

The location was previously Happy Net, an internet cafe (See on Google Streetview)

I saw 4 coyotes on the stage, and other 8 coyotes were in and out of the bar. I was the only customer all the time.

Soft drinks : 85B bottled beer : 125B (Heineken : 145B) lady drinks : 150B

An American tourist was badly beaten in Pattaya late Thursday night after he allegedly refused to pay Bt170 for a bottle of beer.

The victim suffered swollen face and a serious wound on his head. Several of his teeth were also knocked off. His girlfriend, told police that the owner of a bar and an employee beat up Greenwood.

She said the bar owner alleged that Greenwood refused to pay for a bottle of beer priced Bt170 but the tourist argued that he was overcharged.

  News from Pattaya Talk, Feb 2009: Ibiza

The vast majority of the crowd who go there now just seem to go there to dance ‘ibiza style’ to monotonous music and drink expensive drinks rather than for P4P.

Most of the guys are not interested in the girls – I went there a few nights  and I saw many guys come there just to jump up and down by themselves or with their mates and then go home.

This situation has not been lost on the girls who now tend to hang back from approaching guys and don’t hang around long in there.

  News from Pattaya-Live, Nov 2008: The New Place

The new place is large bar down stairs, very chic, DJ's & open from 8pm every night, they have a couple of pool tables & loads of space. Upstairs is the club, open from 11 until 8am, it looks like it could hold around 700 people, is huge, high ceiling, loads of air con, sounds system & lighting system are top notch, has a raised VIP area with own bar, they clearly spent a few bucks building & decorating the place.

My first impressions of the place: I think they have done an excellent job of creating a proper super club in Pattaya, they have really raised the bar & I reckon it will be a free lancers's heaven within a very short period of time.

(No mention of Hades anymore; perhaps they realised that a reference to the Greek god of the underworld was not a good idea.)

The interior was posh and the seating comfortable.

In the first section were two smallish stages and in the second section two bigger ones.

There were at least 50 coyotes, some of them wearing tights, no super models at all.

I saw one waitress and a lot of effeminate waiters (a novelty in Pattaya ?).

Bottled Heineken was 145 baht.

  Review July 2006: Packed

The bar was literally packed full with girls. Unfortunately for the bar, the customers were in the minority but they seemed to be doing good business anyway. Played a few games of Connect 4 with a pretty girl who was in need of a little practise. A rare treat indeed to be able to win a few games even when going second

 FLB Bar

Aircon hostess bar. A meeting point for members of its forum. Closed on 18th January 2014.

  News March 2014: Re-opened

FLB re-opened on 16th March pretty much as before, except without the guiding hand of the previous owner Martin.

  News February 2014: Re-opening

It is reported on Pattaya-Addicts that FLB is set to re-open on 16th March pretty much as before.

  News January 2014: Closed

FLB closed after a long innings on Saturday 18th January.

  News May 2013: For Sale

The coyotes don't seem to have done the trick and the bar is now up for sale (as a going concern)

  News April 2013: Coyote

The hostess bar format is not as popular as it once was, so FLB are now trying out coyote dancers. The bar is starting off with a mix of salaried dancers and some expensive agency girls.

  Review August 2010: More Welcome

FLB seem to have invested in some slightly more pro-active welcome staff. A couple of attractive girls seem to be more likely to pull people in than has been the case for a while.

The welcome girls are, by default at least, pinned to the door. At an earlyish time there were about 6 hostesses available inside. There were a couple that were attractive.

I chatted to one for a while. She made for good company and the drinks were reasonably priced so it made for a nice stay.

Eventually the band came on. They were very competent but ultimately didn't grab my attention due to the usual over familiar tunes.

The bar seemed to fill up a bit though with what I guessed were regular customers. Not sure if there were enough girls to go around at this point. So perhaps better later for people with their own company.

  Review from Thai Visa, Feb 2009: New band

I like this place. They have a new band and some of the ladies are nice to chat with. Never had a problem there as all drink parasites are told to move along.

If you ring the bell they toss you a shirt and put up your moniker along with your quote on one of the mirrors.

  Review from Pattaya Chat, March 2006: Great Girls

Don't like the location since it right front of the boxing ring in Siren Complex. Beers are somewhat on the warm side and the bathroom are in the dingy corner of the complex.

But girls are great and very energetic. Mamasan is very friendly and she speaks English well. Matter of fact, most girls speak English well. It's also own by Sunny so if you don't see him at Lennie's, you will sure to see him there drinking beer.

I guess the word 'harm' is putting off westerners from giving it a try, so it is a bit of a mystery at the moment.

The opening pricing gambit seems to be a flat, all in 1000 Baht for a ST or 2500 for 2 girls and 3 hours.

Soft drink and bottled beer is 100 Baht and a lady drink is 120-150 baht. (customer price + 50 Baht)

  December 2005:

Hot Tuna is one of the largest bars in Walking Street, and has Pool, TV, girls and live music.

Inside, there's a main bar, where girls are happy to play bar games. Upturned beer kegs serve as drinks tables

To the rear there's a stage where a good live band plays a range of tracks including both new and old material.

There's the inevitable giant TV screen for live football and other sport.

Drinks are not the cheapest in town but it stands out from the rest.

Summer 2005:

Bar for watching the walkers of Walking Street. Plenty of pool tables and girls to play with.  One has to put up with some pretty loud dance music though as the bar features a pretty expansive sound system.

  Review by Carl, November 2006: An Absolute Cracker

In my opinion this is the place for late night stalking where an absolute cracker can be picked up. Just sit on a perch and wait for the eyes of a numerous amount of ladies and then just take your pick. Good atmosphere apart from the toilets which are terrible. Great friendly bar staff and open late.

  Summer 2005:

A very good late night hangout is the JP Beer bar near walking street. It's usually pretty dead until around 1 or 2 am just when the go gos and discos start to close. A lot of short time go go girls look for their 2nd customer here OR the ones that didn't get barfined earlier look for their 1st customer. A good way to avoid the bar fines

La Notte is bright, colourful, and warm. The attention to detail -from the light fittings down to the plates, cups, and tablecloths- is readily evident.

One of the major attractions is the front terrace where customers can sit outside and watch the street: a perfect place for a relaxing with a good coffee or over a couple of beers. Food is the main attraction, but I can see this place becoming a popular spot with those who want somewhere to start a night of boozing or who just want to escape the madding crowd and relax with a partner or a few friends.

Potential customers should note that on one police raid, customers were hurt due to an emergency exit to the street being locked. In fact the packed interior and narrow entrance corridor suggests that this would be a nightmare in an emergency.

Drinks in the 170-200 Baht range

 News June 2014: Police closure

The disco suffered a substantial police closure to thuggery by the club's bouncers. Regulars are being redirected to 808 Club, a few doors down Walking Street. Re-opened on 11th August

  Review May 2012: Popular and Busy

Beers are still 170 Baht for farangs (paid for on delivery). Mostly loud US rap, music wise. Very popular with freelancers. There's a live band which alternates with DJs. Generally busy after midnight.

  News July 2010: Price Watch

Beers are now 170 Baht for farangs whilst Thais pay 90 Baht.

  Review from Pattaya Secrets, Sept 2008: Fabulous Band

If you are into hip hop and gangsta rap I don’t think there is a better place in Pattaya to listen to it. The DJ’s pump out a 30 minute set and then flawlessly, the absolutely fabulous band takes over, all vocalists take turns, one better than the other, the line up includes a gorgeous girl who is not on the stage just for her beauty, she gives as good as the guys with perfect attitude.

Lucifer’s have spared no expense on the sound system, the light show is appropriate for what the place is, just to remind you, a sort of underground music focused venue with a customer base of hard core hip hop music lovers.

There were plenty of freelances on the prowl so you could go on your own and still get laid, but its not like your shooting fish in a barrel, you may have to work a bit, I saw a couple of guys get knock backs. My advice would to bring a girl with you’re your probably safer that way also.

  Review from Pattaya Addicts, Oct 2007: Pretty Expensive

Lucifer is the place to go around 2 am. It is a great place, many girls, great DJ but pretty expensive drinks (shots can be around 220 baht... There is no real dance floor but still everybody is dancing.

  Review from Pattaya Secrets, Dec 2006: Young Crowd

I liked the place. It's music policy seems to be almost entirely hiphop which is ok by me. DJ Domination was playing, but I wasn't that impressed.

What did impress me was the standard of the freelancers, a fairly young crowd but mainly good looking with nice attitudes.

  December 2005: Heaven

I think the best place for music and ladies. the quality always seems to be there. Anyway when in Pattaya I always seem to go there nearly every night.

The music is the same every night as well. So you can go to the loo outside for a break and come back into the disco and know which song is next!!

There also seems a mad rush of women between 12 and 1. Mostly freelancers but heaven!!

  Review from Pattaya Addicts, Oct 2007: Real Dance Floor

Marine 1 is the place to go around 3am.

Most of the girls from the bars try to pull in that place. The only thing about Marine 1 is: It is ALWAYS the same music.

The drinks are also not the cheapest.

The good thing here is that you got a real dance floor.

  Review from Pattaya Secrets, Dec 2006: The Daddy

The Daddy of them all and still the best IMHO. It's bigger than the rest, a fairly simple design and lighting setup but used very effectively with an almost warehouse type feeling.

It was packed with a whole variety of farangs and thais of all ages who all mostly seemed to be having a good time.

The music is excellent too, fairly hiphop free, a bit cheesy but just the thing to get a crowd dancing. Loads of cute, and some not so cute, Thai girls looking for a farang for the night.

  October 2006:

Happy hour until 1am with drinks at 80 Baht

  December 2005:

If I never got one from elsewhere, and wanted to, then this is where I would end up. Sometimes the quality is not what it should be but at that time of night does anyone care?

Shophouse bar. Previously Otto's New Calypso Bar

  Review from Dick Farang, May 2014: A bit too open bar

Naam Bar is an open single-shophouse bar on Walking Street between Best Bar and Harem A Go Go (Harem 2).

It is owned by Naam, a Thai lady who is slimmer than each of her staff.

In its front it has comfortable seating with sight on Walking Street and inside there is a bar with stools.

If you are somewhat known in Pattaya you better avoid sitting in the front row.

When I had hardly seated myself I was approached by, let us say, an acquaintance.

The most embarrassing was that she would not sit down and accept a drink.

Finally I had to bpai hong naam (What is in a name?) to get rid of her.

Bottled Heineken 95 baht.

  News July 2014: Renamed

Now Naam Bar

  Review from Neal, May 2014: Nam's New Calypso Bar

I was recently in Pattaya for Songkran this April (2014) and I visited Otto's New Calypso Bar a number of times as it was a very relaxing bar to sit and watch the passing crowds.

I unfortunately did not meet Otto but I presume the Bar has been sold because a very beautiful lady called Nam (Thai lady) is now the new Owner.

As far as I am aware she will be changing the name of the Bar so watch this space.

Yes the ladies working there are a bit older than you will find in other Bars and maybe that's why it is a nice place to relax and have a drink. No loud pumping music but you can hear all that from the other pubs / go go bars etc. around the place.

  Review from Neal, May 2014: Nam's New Calypso Bar

I was recently in Pattaya for Songkran this April (2014) and I visited Otto's New Calypso Bar a number of times as it was a very relaxing bar to sit and watch the passing crowds.

I unfortunately did not meet Otto but I presume the Bar has been sold because a very beautiful lady called Nam (Thai lady) is now the new Owner.

As far as I am aware she will be changing the name of the Bar so watch this space.

Yes the ladies working there are a bit older than you will find in other Bars and maybe that's why it is a nice place to relax and have a drink. No loud pumping music but you can hear all that from the other pubs / go go bars etc. around the place.

  Review by Steve, February 2006: Swiss Calypso

Otto’s is a small Swiss-German bar set right in the middle of Walking Street, next door to ‘The Best Bar’ (formerly Stoney’s), right by the junction with Happy-a-GoGo and Living Dolls. Its chief asset is probably the owner, Otto, who is a really pleasant guy. Unfortunately, about 9 months ago he suffered spinal injuries while driving his motorbike home, and he is still convalescing.

Being small, the bar has only a few comfy, cushioned seats in its entrance, and most people end up sitting on the bar stools inside. The bar has the beer set-up right so that it is always cold, unlike some newer places where later on a busy night the bottles can become decidedly tepid. It also has perhaps the nicest toilet of any Walking Street bar beer.

There is the usual gaggle of ladies who double as serving ladies and entertainment girls if you care to offer them. The usual bar beer prices prevail. But mostly the ladies just sit around all night, they do not get a great deal of custom. None of them is terribly young (the last time I asked the youngest two ladies were both 29), which is probably a good thing given the lack of custom.

In the high season the place can become a bit overpoweringly Teutonic in its clientele, which is fine if you’re Swiss-German or even German. In the low season it is more laid-back, though the single drinker may still be asked to vacate the comfy chairs for a bar stool if more customers appear.

Beer bar and Restaurant. Heineken 80 Baht

  News Oct 2007: Refit

The oval bar has been pushed further back from Walking Street and the space left has been cleared. After a bit of rework the bar was moved back with little obvious resultant change.

  Summer 2006:

Really a beer bar and restaurant that are side by side, with a hotel above. On the bar side there is a troop of girls in black dresses. There's a big screen TV if you're into football.

It is a reasonably quiet bar that avoids the dance music fixation of many of the competitors. There is sometimes a duo of musicians concentrating on more pop than dance music.

The restaurant is a bit more up-market.

  Pattaya Beer Garden

Freelancer pick up bar, opened on 25th April 2008

  News from pattayabeergarden June 2008: Progress into June

From day one we have had consistently good business. The bar itself can be a little deceptive because of the size and the four different areas. Fifty people can virtually disappear and it takes over 100 people to make the place look slightly busy. For me this is a great advantage as the relaxing, chill out atmosphere is not spoilt even when we are busy.

The freelancer situation is evolving and getting better all the time. We are always promoting the beer garden to the girls and building up a nice set of regulars. New girls stumble in every day and overall I am satisfied we are on the right track. It is still a bit hit and miss and will probably remain so for a few more months. You just have to try your luck and maybe wait for a while for new girls to wander in.

I have mentioned busy times before but I think it is a bit self defeating to do so. Last week I write that I was surprised by the number of girls arriving after 10pm. On Friday night we had about 25 girls sitting at the bar at 7 pm and 5 guys. By 9 pm that had changed to 25 guys and 5 girls. Sometimes the balance is right and sometimes it is not. I am sure this will continue until we are better known.

I saw a comment on a board last week about the rules of engagement. Basically the poster was saying he was not going to approach the girls and if they did not approach him nothing was going to happen. That approach will work in just about every bar in Pattaya but it will not work at the Pattaya Beer Garden. You must make first contact. If you can’t or won’t do that then the PBG is probably not for you. If you approach a girl at the bar I can almost guarantee that you will not be rebuffed. The girls are there to find a man after all. Even fat old balding people like me are seen as desirable meat mates. So don’t be shy just say Hi. The rest will follow naturally and without pressure.

We are in to out June promotions now. The freelancer discount continues. Bring your own freelancer and receive a 100 baht discount off your order. Please ask clearly for "The Freelancer Discount" when ordering.

Happy hours are 3 pm to 5 pm and then again 9 pm to 11 pm every day. All bottled beers are 50 baht (except Corona). This week we have permanently lowered the price of Corona and Strongbow.

A new thing we are trying in June is the "Sunset Promotion". The PBG is a great place to watch the sunset each evening around 6:30 pm. It can be quite spectacular. From 5:30 pm to 7 pm each night we are offering the "Sunset Special". A plate of Thai h'orderves and a Sundowner cocktail for two hundred baht. The Thai snacks are very tasty and farang friendly (will not blow your head off) and the Sundowner cocktail packs a bit of a wallop with three shots of the hard stuff.

  News April 2008: Open

The bar is now open for business and the Pattaya regulars have been giving a good reception. There are plenty of promotions during May to give it a good kick start.

  News March 2008: Freelancers

People have always wondered why Pattaya doesn't have a venue for freelancers along the lines of Bangkok's Beer Garden on Soi 7.

Well bar owner Pattaya Pete (previously of FLB) has bought a venue that he hopes will emulate the success of the Beer Garden. The venue is hardly a garden though, as it is at the back of the Pier Complex overlooking the sea.

It is a large venue and will feature reasonable prices so as to encourage customers and girls to hang around and buy a few drinks. There will be no bar fines.

  Review from Pattaya Addicts, June 2007: Favourite

I enthusiastically second the Rolling Stone 2 bar where Soi 16 meets Walking Street. They have a terrific band that plays all the classic rock standards. It's a big bar overlooking Walking Street so it's perfect for people-watching. You can play pool, flirt with the girls, watch sports on the TVs or just chill. By far my favorite beer bar.

  Pattaya brochure review February 2006: Rolling Welcome

The bar has a pleasant outside seating environment  for watching passers by on Walking Street. The bar has over 30 beautiful women as well as excellent live music.

Both Gary and Noi, his friendly wife are always great ones to talk to and they definitely made us feel welcome.

  Review Autumn 2005: Doubtless a Good Business

A note for all the doubters of the Covent Garden Complex the Rolling Stone 2 Bar is exceeding all business expectations!

Have to agree with you that the Rolling Stone 2 bar is rather nice, I spent a night drinking there until the sun came up.

The bar TV hosts all of Australia's sporting and cultural events such as ANZAC Day, Melbourne Cup Day and Australia Day etc. Football games and finals series (AFL & NRL) are recieved from Australia live via satellite, along with other major Australian sporting events.

January 2006:

The Roo Bar has Aussie owners, Bob & Roundy, at least one of them always present. Icy cold beer, good conversation with owners and other customers, no loud music. Quick service. The bar is full most nights, high and low season despite having to sit on backless stools. Serious beer drinkers stay all night, and spend spend spend.

Summer 2005:

Open front bar popular with the Australians. Great hosts, nice girls, cold beer and lotsa, lotsa bullshit!!

On the other hand: It is a depressingly grubby bar and always seems to be inhabited by Australians who come all the way to LOS to sit in a bar talking to other Australians about Australia! The only women I have seen in there were ones I had wished I hadn't

They tried to pull the you never pay trick where they claim you never paid the bill while you are waiting for your change. Could not get through to the tourist police so I ended up paying the bill 3 times. 590 baht bill, gave them 1000, no change, and ended up giving them 500 again to settle and leave.

  Review by Materialsman, October 2009: Cheers Style Bar

I quite like Secrets as a concept, and I am a regular contributor to their website Forum, though I do consider they charge like a wounded rhinoceros for my favoured bottled Heineken, thus forcing me to drink the draft beer Tiger on my visits here, I don't have a problem paying outrageous prices for a bottled beer in a Go-Go, where there is acres of naked flesh on display, but I feel that in a Coyote style Bar, the pricing in Club Blu or the Honeypot is more to my liking.

Secrets is what it is, a sort of Cheers style Bar where everyone knows your name and was busy as always, a very successful business concept, perhaps partly, but not singularly due to the ubiquitous and gregarious Manager Larry, though last night I felt the Mamasan was a bit hasty in trying to thrust a girl at me for company, actually before I had even got my first beer, that may be fine for a shy newbie, but I like to take my time and actually select a cutie to sit with me, it's a minor irritation, but I guess it worked, as I felt obliged to buy a lady drink and swap idle where you come from,' 'what's your name' style crap until I could beat a retreat.

  Info Dec 2008: Prices

Barfines for hostesses are 450 Baht. 1000 Baht for dancers before midnight (including afternoons until 3pm) and 600 Baht after midnight. Draft Tiger is 60 Baht

  Review from Pattaya-Live, March 2008: Spanking

Service was good, there were a shit load of girlies and a good load of them hot, the pizza we ordered was spanking, and the ale was cold.

  Review April 2007: Lonely (but Good Food)

The general Pattaya rule is that bars employ hostesses but restaurants generally avoid them.

I thought it would be nice to have meal with company rather than the usual eating alone so I stopped by Secrets as one of the few bars that combine girls with food (and aircon)

Unfortunately the way that Secrets hook up the girls with customers is pretty naff and it wasn't to be. The girls were lined up just inside the door and they were a pretty mixed bunch. A couple of oldies were the first to catch my eye in the short time that you to make a choice. My body language sent out distress signals to alert the two oldies that they shouldn't bother trying their luck. Unfortunately the whole pack of girls caught the same distress signals and the whole lot ignored me for the entire visit.

Once inside and having time to survey the scene it seems that many customers were sitting there lonely and that the girls would either ignore them all or else flock around a few big spending, big character types that were probably regulars. They clearly were enjoying the attention so there are surely a few good reviews deserved by the bar.

Still I pressed on with the food order and the service was prompt and efficient.

The meal was very good and the chef had made a fine effort to put a little style and originality into basic pub food.

Just a shame that no hostesses so much as glanced in my direction.

  Info Dec 2006: Prices

Barfines for hostesses are 400 Baht. 1000 Baht for dancers before midnight and 600 Baht after midnight.

  Review by jj, Dec 2006: Keep it a SECRET

The only ones likely to be spread a word of mouth ad for Secrets are the investors. This place is best kept a secret from seasoned punters.

We found ourselves on Walking Street a bit before the angel-hour of 8PM. The first group of hello-girls we encountered south of Pattaya Tai were touting Secrets . They promised "sexy girls". Being easily swayed, we fell for the ploy.

Secrets is one of those beautifully appointed bars that cost the investors a large fortune to outfit. It's attraction stops there. At that early hour, there were perhaps 20-25 ladies in residence. For the most part they were completely ignoring the 3-5 punters present. They were arranged in gaggles of 4-6, deeply engaged in conversation among themselves; one group surrounding a video game machine near the side door. Everything the previous reviewers said about this place: seating, music, oldies and fatties is completely true. Three large flat-screen TVs were showing a concert video -- with the sound off. The DJ was playing the standard CD that the Thai government seemingly issues with every liquor license. Drink prices were going rate except for something called "Secrets Cocktails" of unspecified ingredients for 280 baht!

Likely the investors will pepper sites like this with rave reviews in hopes of recouping their funds. With the competition on Walking Street alone, I give this place a year at most before they pull the plug.

  Review Sept 2006: Suay

The bar is immediately attractive. It features a central bar with comfortable chairs at the bar. There are bays of couch seating around the back. Lighting and decoration is spot on.

There are dancing poles with girls in disco wear.

Bottled Tiger Beer was very reasonable at 50 Baht. San Miguel, spirits and lady drinks are 95 Baht

I didn't stay long though as the hostess who attached herself to me was an oldie. In fact the girls on the prowl in my vicinity weren't a very attractive bunch but I did spot a couple of pretty girls around the other side of the bar.

Stands out from the crown in that it features massive quantities of ornaments and soft furnishing etc. It looks like a lifetimes work for a rather eccentric owner. There are so many dangly things and cushions and tapestries and pictures that there seems little room for customers. Doesn't seem to matter much though as I have rarely seen many.

It is a bar where I will surely pop in one day. But the nearby rather basic, loud, garish & tasteless bars have one slight advantage over Shangri La, they are stocked with attractive short time girlfriends.

Mostly absent Thai female owner, Thai cashier manages each shift. Draught beer is flat, bottled beer is almost warm, music mostly loud but they will turn the volume down if asked. Service is good, girls don't push themselves onto you unless you wink at them. The bar never does a roaring trade. Serious beer drinkers have one (maybe leave half of it) and move on.

  Review from Jil in Pattaya, Aug 2007: Neat

It is an exceptionally neat design and layout, up on the second floor, sitting on top of the beer bars that run the entire length of the left side of the alley, with an open-air seating arrangement and plush booths to relax in, in a complete open-air setting.

The exceptionally fancy style of the bar is unfortunately offset by the poorest view of any bar in the city: That being the unadorned and neglected rears of the buildings over on Soi BJ.

  News from Pattaya Addicts Feb 2007 Ice Room

Everything about the bar seems to ooze quality, and the ice vodka room is a great way to instantly cool down from the hot nights that have started again. Also when you take a lady into the ice room with you I doubt very much that they will have experienced cold like this.

One thing I really liked is the hostess outfits, every girl looked very stylish.

  Review June 2008: Happening

One of my drinking friends was recommending a new happening disco on Walking Street. I tried to make sense of her directions and I knew of no disco at the Beach Road end of Walking Street.

She assured me that there was one, as she had been 3 times and enjoyed herself every time.

I think she was talking about the new Gulliver's owned Walking Street Sports Cafe. I wasn't entirely convinced as she could not recall a large red car hung on the wall as you walk in. How could you miss it.

  Review from Pattaya Talk, March 2008: Tasty Decor

Its a brand new upmarket trendy bar not sure who the owners have aimed it at.

Well fitted venue looks and feels expensive, with tasty decor very well done, supposedly imitating an underground station

Flat screens every where even in the LUXURY loo's SHOWING sports events.

Food, Thai and western ALL reasonably priced as are drinks. The  bar staff are attentive, usual bar games and pool were being played though seems a bit out of place in this styled venue.

If they get the music volume sorted and dump the DJ, I would go back the place was quite busy with a lot of punters over 50 yet the music was blaring hip hop to which the only persons responding to the incessant over loud thumping were the bar staff

There is very very low ambient lighting. If you decide to order food, the table service stand overlooking your shoulder with a torch whilst you peruse the menu,

Restaurant with live music from IsaanFrom Pattaya Talk

  Review from Pattaya Talk, February 2014: Isaan Music

The venue has reinvented itself as a Thai Mor Lam music venue. The drinks prices are now reasonable. the makeover has worked and the venue is now very popular.

  News, June 2011: Expensive Drinks

A change of direction with the live music now being Issan singing and dancing. Still expensive drinks with 100 baht for coke and 150 Baht for a fruit juice.

  Review from Pattaya Addicts, Sep 2007: Expensive Drinks

Has a good 7 piece band and a Beegees impersonator group. Quite expensive for drinks though, 100 Baht water, 150 juice, cheapest beer 200

  Prices from Pattaya Secrets, Dec 2006: Customers Zapped by the Prices

One Malibu & orange juice and one bottle of Singha: 360 baht.

Now although the band is exceptional, the place was dead, maybe 6 customers, I wonder why...

 

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
