  News August 2014: Draft

The show bar has now introduced draft beer at 95 Baht. Apparently door staff have signs suggesting 65 Baht, but this is not the case.

  Review from Malcolm, January 2014: Splits

Called in Amethyst, on Soi LK Metro at 9-55 to see the show at 10-00.

Around 20 girls dancing when I went in. Show started, 5 scenes, starting with a few clothes on and ending naked. The memorable scene was a girl leaping about lashing a whip on the floor and doing the splits, swinging round the poles over the heads of those sat by the stage. Her finale was to climb up a pole and jump off, landing on the stage doing the splits. This was not your average 7/8 stone girl. She was a good size 12/14, big girl. Very good show, well choreographed.

Singha B150, ladydrinks B185.

Lots of pressure to keep buying ladydrinks. About 40 - 50 girls working. Very nice decor.

  News from Ishi, November 2013: Angelwitch 2

Amethyst opened on 17th November.

Everything looks like Angelwitch on Walking Street Soi 15. Music, show and costumes of GoGo dancers. But I saw 7 coyotes on the stage. I've never seen coyotes in Angelwitch.

The bar doesn't have a drink menu and it doesn't serve draught beer. The cheapest drinks (soft drinks) are 95B.

It opens at 7pm every day, but the shows don't start before 10pm. There doesn't seem much point going before 10pm as premium prices are charged basically for nothing.

  Review from Sedrik, August 2013: Good Vibes

My first visit to the bar was in the company of a few friends at 00:30am. The bill at the time was No 96.

There were about 15 ladies dressed from topless to light bikinis. It was a good quality roster.

Lady drinks were 135 Baht.

It is one of the best decorated GoGos in Pattaya with very good music. The ladies were not shy in speaking to customers. They were up for a kiss, without undue lady drink hassle.

In 2 words: good vibes.

  Early reports, August 2013: Very expensive lady drinks

The bar is something a little different to other GoGos with a more lounge style layout with chairs and sofas is clusters for 4 or so people.

The dancing is coyote with something more like bunny costumes than the usual GoGo wear. barfines are in the range 800-1000 depending on short or long time.

Drinks prices send out very mixed messages. Customer drinks are very reasonable yet lady drinks are amongst the most expensive in town at 175 Baht.

  News August 2014: Afternoon opening ends

The military dictatorship has decreed that GoGos on Soi LK Metro cannot open until 6pm

  News January 2014: Afternoon opening resumes

The bar now opens at 2pm. A happy hour operates in the afternoons.

  News December 2013: Re-opened

Re-opened on 1st December but visited on the 2nd.

The bar now has one center stage with 7 poles. On the stage I saw 5 or 6 dancers who were topless, bikini and coyote.

The girls were from FunHouse, Crystal Club, Clinic and so on. The topless dancer in Clinic changed to a coyote in Champagne.

The girls advance onstage by one dancer per song.

The bar doesn't have draught beer. Bottled beer and soft drinks are from 85B, lady drinks are 140B.

  News September 2013: Closed for renovation

The bar closed at the end of August for a major renovation. The target re-opening seems to be around mid October. There are also rumours that the re-opening will be under new management.

  Review from Sedrik, July 2013: More coyote than GoGo

I visited at about 9:30pm.

The lady roster is fine with a few stunners. There were 20+ dancers but the dance rotation is a little bit long. The dancing is more coyote than gogo.

There is a weird video loop played non stop on TV (an old porn cartoon).

  Review March 2011: Coyote

The bar seems to have upped the number of coyote dancers whilst the number of gogo dancers has declined. There now seems more coyotes than gogo dancers on the central stage.

There are still the naked show girls, but naked dancers are becoming a bit of rarity in Champagne, The Office and MASH.

  Review by Lean January 2011: Enjoy it to the max

I have found Champagne a go go to be to my liking. My last trip I didn't see the good in it.

Right now, late January 2011, I've had a couple of great visits and have enjoyed the company of a certain dancer.

Nice rooms upstairs, 500 baht, Girl 1000 baht. With drinks and tips altogether about $60 US.........

I see a lot of reviews on this site, and I think too many guys are simply too negative. It's all too good here, there is nowhere else like it, so enjoy it to the max.

I come with a positive attitude, and want to respect and elicit the best qualities out of the girl. When you do that, you will always get the best experience from the girl you select.

  Review by Greeny December 2010: Better Crowd

Better crowd [than Oasis] and vibe, better ratio of girls and definitely better attitude from girls - a few stunners - one young lady with a very nice pair of enhanced boobs.

Best quality girls of these three Metro area GoGos. Drinks reasonable

  Review November 2010: Rammed

Champagne was positively rammed with both punters and lookers. Unfortunately as increasingly the case at Champagne, the best-looking girls huddled in the back or only feigned interest at the few hunky guys around, all around age 25. The bar's core constituency of older residents have to make due with second-tier dancers or watching the goings-on alone.

Admittedly, however, there was a lot to watch. Nudity seemed less of a problem here, but the fully-clothed coyotes do seem to be getting more central-stage time than in the past, which is not a positive sign. The big-baht, small-reward coyotes are better relegated to the side tables.

  Review September 2010: Afternoon

I made a rare afternoon trip to Pattaya and thought it was an ideal opportunity to try a Champagne tea.

The bar seemed to be doing very well with customers occupying about half the available drinks tables.

There were half a dozen girls dancing and they were an above average set of girls. Easily better than most daytime GoGos that I have tried over the last year. There were another half dozen girls on waiting their turn to dance.

There were several girls doing the rounds in search of lady drinks and tips but a few were also ignoring customers between dance turns.

Afternoon drinks are sold at Happy Hour prices.

On the whole the afternoon operation at Champagne seems to be a success.

  Review from Pattaya Secrets May 2010: Popular Shows

The bar was full at around 10pm. Enjoyed the show that was underway. Three girls dressed in night gowns were giving some anatomy lessons, the fourth even had forgotten to bring her dress along.

When the show was over, the dancers climbed on the stage and 2 girls went to the shower cubicle to get a scrub.

It was too crowded, but the place had a good vibe and the girls were enjoying whatever they were doing. Service was exceptional.

  Review Sept 2009: Flat

This is one of the least friendly gogos in Pattaya, at least for me. The girls don't seem to take any interest in the customers with the occasional exception of obvious previous acquaintances. Presumably its the way the locals like it...which they seem to do.

The bar has a central stage that was recently cut down in size, About half a dozen girls dance topless or in a bikini.

There's a naked play mat but it has limited visibility and I have never particularly watched what goes on there.

There are also a few tables designated for uninspired coyote dancing. Can't quite see the point of overdressed dancing in a gogo myself, but it no doubt adds to the variety.

The most luck I've had for a bit of interaction is with the service girls. There are quite a few of them and they can spend a little bit of time with customers if plied with a drink.

  Review August 2012: Holding Up

I have neglected the long running Club Oasis for a while due to the distractions of seeing how the proliferation of new bars is getting on. But on a recent visit Oasis is still doing fine.

It offers more or less the same mix as it has done for a while. Certainly less customers than in the past, but from my slightly selfish view, this was a good thing. There was a better chance of a little company.

The bar still had a stage full of dancers organised in two teams. The dress code is bikini or less, with no signs of coyotes. There were several attractive girls on the stage in both teams.

The Tina Turner look alike mamasang was back in charge. And from my observations she generally brings a bit of life to a bar.

I'm not sure whether the decline in customers is seasonal, or a reflection of the western world going bankrupt; or else an upsurge in nearby competing gogos. However, I don't think any of the new bars have brought anything particularly new that will dominate the area. So I think Oasis, keeping to its long running way of doing things, will continue doing just fine.

  Review January 2012: Back up to speed

Club Oasis is now more or less back up to speed. The very poor period for ladies and the debacle with VAT added to bills is now a distant memory.

I visited during mid evening in peak season and the bar was about full. There were two teams of dancers swapping every 5 or 6 songs. The stage was busy with about 10 dancers. There were plenty of attractive girls amongst them, but the overall ranking perhaps about average. The dress code was generally topless and dancing was reasonably spirited with plenty of smiles.

However the bar does have a rather limited niche. The amount of customers was several times more than the amount of girls. This bar is therefore mostly for that like to watch and soak up the atmosphere rather than expect the company of a dancer. Plenty of the dancers were circulating amongst the audience but they were spread pretty thinly.

I have stopped by several times in lower season and there is more chance for customers who want to hook up with girls to partake, but even then the odds were not on the customers side.

This bars seems to capture the specialised character popular in the Soi Buakhao area. Well run bars with decent drinks prices that pack in the customers, but with many more guys than gals.

  News October 2011: Draft price

The price of a draft beer has now risen to 59 Baht.

  News March 2011: Ex-VAT

The bar has wisely discontinued its policy of charging VAT which correlated with a clear decline in customers. It may not be a total cure though, as the bar also seems to be struggling to find girls who take much interest in the customers.

  Review March 2011: Just a blip?

I have been a regular visitor to Oasis without ever being much of a fan. Mostly because it is a convenient rest break point on a regular journey. Rarely have I been persuaded to stay beyond the required single beer and toilet visit. The bar has generally been ok, it's just that it is very popular and there are usually just too many guys for the amount of girls on duty.

But ever since Office opened up I have moved my allegiance there. It is a bar where I stand a good chance that friendly girls will persuade me to stay a bit longer.

I have a feeling that it's not just my trade Oasis has lost, but perhaps a few others too. Oasis seems to have compounded the problem with some sort of management policy change resulting in the recruiting of overdressed girls who seem more interested in willfully ignoring customers than interacting with them.

And then there was the imposition of VAT as an add on charge.

At least it is reasonably clear that it will be added with the welcome sign giving the draft beer price with '+VAT'. The bins on the table also make it quite clear. There are still prices on the wall that are not clear though.

Why on earth a bar wants to aggravate customers, particularly at check bin times when the tip is so readily withheld. It's not as if there can be any trade or business customers. And surely when many of the customers are from countries where 20% is the norm, then if they don't notice the VAT they will irritated by the extra charge. But if they do notice that VAT will be added then they may jump to conclusion that prices are 13% higher than they actually are.

Anyway with all these negatives adding up I wasn't surprised on my last visit to find the bar pretty empty at a peak evening hour.

However I think this has already registered with bar connections and the bar was offering a very cheap 42 Baht (39 Baht + VAT!) draft beer in a good sized glass.

In addition the girls had reverted back to a GoGo dress code, with bikinis and topless being the norm. The coyote dancers have probably shipped out to the newly opened M*A*S*H. Also there were more customers enjoying a bit of girly company than there has been in my last few whistle stop visits.

So hopefully any recent negativity will be but just a blip.

  News February 2011: VAT

Club Oasis have increased their prices across the board by 7%. They have elected to do this via the reprehensible trick of adding VAT to the bill. As if there were any business customers in the bar.

  Review from Dick Farang, September 2014: Improving

The line-up at Malibu on Soi LK Metro is gradually improving.

There seems to be a floating mass of fuglies trying their luck at each venue that opens in Pattaya. Next will probably be Infinity and Spicy Girls on Walking Street.

At Malibu there are teams of some five dancers (bikini and topless) on the central stage now for rather long (boring) dance stints (at least 20 minutes).

The change of the teams still goes chaotically.

The coyotes are dancing on small stages in the corners.

Bikini dancers have numbers in the 600-series and topless dancers have numbers in the 700-series.

I saw one young obviously inexperienced topless dancer (# 717) who forgot to smile.

I was told that dancers have to pass, at their own expense (350-550 baht), a monthly health check at a clinic on Third Road before their salary is paid.

Barfines 600 baht (bikini dancers), 800 baht (topless dancers) and 1,200 baht (coyotes).

Bottled Heineken 120 baht (during happy hour until 10 p.m. 85 baht only), lady drinks 140 baht.

  Review from Dick Farang, August 2014: Malibu Red

On Soi LK Metro the newly opened gogo Malibu shares its facade with Champagne.

It has a modern looking central stage with five chrome poles on it and fixed barstools around it. On the left-hand side is one row of bench seating and on the right-hand side two rows.

Most of the dancers were clad in red bikinis in different shapes and sizes; some of them were topless. The quality of the girls was average at best, in the age bracket of 20 to 40 years.

Sometimes there were five dancers on stage, sometimes two and sometimes nobody at all. I saw a lousy, not even lesbian, show with two body-painted fatties.

It seems one team of dancers works from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m. and another one from 8.30 p.m. until closing time between 3 and 4 a.m.

I heard the bikini dancers are paid 12,000 baht a month and the topless ones 15,000 baht.

The music was way too loud.

At a given moment my check-bin had disappeared. I called the waitresses and they concluded that my neighbour had probably, unknowingly, paid my bill. An embarrassing story.

Barfines were 600 baht.

Bottled Heineken 120 baht.

  Review from Dick Farang, October 2014: Old-fashioned gogo

On Soi Post Office (Soi 13/2) Club Nevada is still going strong.

It opens from the early afternoon until around midnight.

The girls work in two shifts and at the shift change at 7 p.m. all girls of both shifts gather on stage. Most girls seem to work two shifts.

Club Nevada is an old-fashioned gogo where even the worn barstools have their charm.

The layout is very classic with a full-sized central stage and bench seating and mirrors around.

It is not as cramped as Tahitian Queen on Beach Road and the tables for the drinks are bigger than at most other places.

In the back left is a big bar with stools where often punters are chatting.

The music is good old rock and roll and not too loud.

At my last visit (around 3 p.m.) there was an elderly and very corpulent gentleman drinking a draught beer. Of the about ten dancers two at a time were on stage and the others drinking lady drinks with him and caressing his phenomenal belly. He in turn was touching their snatches, probably the only sexual activity he was capable of.

The girls were not particularly young or beautiful, but friendly enough. Most of them were clad in not too big bras and strings. Many of them stripped topless and also bottomless.

If my memory serves me well they do have an all-in offer at 1,800 baht, but you have to climb several flights of stairs for it.

I have sweet memories of the girls I barfined at Club Nevada many moons ago when I was not yet a resident, but a six-week millionaire.

Heineken draught 65 baht, bottled Heineken 120 baht.

  Review from Malcolm, December 2013: Early Fun

Went to Club Nevada at just after 1pm and there was a absolute cutie dancing naked when I went in. Had a few drinks with her and enquired of the barfine. She said long time barfine was B600 barfine and B1500 for her.

Turned out her idea of long time was till 7pm when she was going back to work. I was expecting all night, but she was gorgeous and could suck the chrome off a towbar.

Reasonable lineup, mostly nude, draught Chang B55 and ladydrink only B100

  Review August 2012: Ticking Over

The bar is still ticking over in its minimalist sort of way. Its probably the weakest of the clutch of GoGos in this soi and next. Far East Rock scores as a hangout bar while Hot & Cold and Las Vegas offer the best hands on fun.

Las Vegas generally has 3 or 4 dancers at a time and 3 or 4 more waiting their turn. The dress code is nude, topless or bikini depending on the girl. The music is oldie rock and it doesn't inspire the dancers very much.

The girls are friendly enough, but sometimes they seem to prefer to vanish off upstairs or outside rather than looking after customers.

Drinks are cheap though, and overall the bar provides a pleasant rather than enthralling experience.

  Review January 2012: Hanging In There

The bar seems to be at a pretty low ebb in terms of the number of girls and the number of customers. But otherwise it doesn't change much.

It is a friendly and well run place that is always perfectly good for a beer break. There never seems much reason to stay very long though.

The bar typically has either 3 or 4 girls dancing and a similar amount awaiting their turn. The dress code is bikini down to none. The dancing cast is generally a little below average but there are usually a couple of dancers that can catch the eye.

The draft beer is cheap and served in a good sized glass.

  Review March 2011: Precarious

Soi Post Office has surely seen better times in terms of customer counts, with all 3 surviving GoGos a shadow of their former selves.

Nevada now seems to have scaled down to about half a dozen girls and the welcome staff duties are assigned to a cardboard sign.

It all seems a bit of a shame as Nevada has been on my list of bars for a regular visit for a long time.

The decline in visitors is not easy for the gogos that lose out. Once numbers decline then if there's not many girls dancing then a proportion of customers do a U turn as soon as they enter the bar. Others might not be bothered by a lack of dancing, but may be similarly inclined to do a quick exit once realising there aren't enough girls to enquire as to where they come from and see to their immediate needs. And the problems only get compounded should a couple of girls be invited out by customers.

But the bar still offers the chance of a friendly companion for a drink or three. Its just that the chance of this has happening has declined in line with Pattaya's vanishing expat scene.

  Review September 2010: Dance Too Long

The bar is basically a sound, mostly daytime, gogo with several endearing features.

The bar typically has about 10 dancers. They dance in the full range from bikini to very little. About an average line up, but there's usually a couple of girls who stand out.

The music is strictly rock. And the drinks are reasonably priced.

As with several other bars, one of its fundamental flaws is that too many of the girls are set dancing. A daytime hangout should be about spending time with the customers, with just enough dancing to ensure a pleasant distraction for a few minutes whilst finding a drinking partner.

But even when there are no customers in the bar, then it is typical that 5 out of the 10 girls will be set dancing. That immediately means that customers have to spend half there time watching the insipid dancing. Usually therefore, "I Go Dance" results in a quick "check bin", and a short stroll to Hot and Cold.

  Review from Dick Farang, July 2014: Very Quiet

Crystal Club on Soi LK Metro has become very quiet: fewer staff and less than a handful of customers.

There are still three teams of 7-8 dancers left now.

There is still a majority of bikini dancers, but many wear big tops and/or big bottoms.

The very fat mamasan does not seem to care about their outfits.

The topless and naked dancers have disappeared.

The price of a bottled Heineken has gone up from 110 baht to 125 baht.

The military junta has now banned GoGos from opening until 6pm.

  Review, February 2014: Best quality crystal

For all the recent expansion on Soi LK Metro, originality hasn't been a major source of inspiration. I recently stopped by 3 new bars all with more or less the same layout, namely Crystal, Funhouse, and Oscars.

All feature a long thin central stage surrounded by comfortable bench seating.

Crystal was easily the best of the bunch, and it was absolutely nothing to do with the prettiness of the decor, nor really the attractiveness of the dancers.

It was that on the day I visited, the girls were simply being the most friendly. The dancers were scanning the audience for feedback, and then were circulating amongst the customers when waiting their turn to dance.

Also Crystal did not seem so afflicted by coyotes as the other two.

And I don't think it was just me, the bar, was popular and most customers seemed to be generally enjoying the entertainment.

  Review from Sedrik, July 2013: Second look

I visited at a peak time of 23h10 (and according to the bill, the 190th customer)

Of course, the bar no longer employs the premium ladies like at the opening.

There were 18+ ladies, of which one was topless. All the others were coyote. They were not very friendly and some of the girls looked very bored.

The music mix (I didn't see if there was a DJ or not) wasn't impressive.

  Review from ishi, July 2013: First look

I saw almost 50 dancers in the bar (there were 49-51 dancers on the  mamasan's board) in 5 teams but mostly coyotes.

Mamasan said We'll have some topless dancers and bottomless dancers in one month.

Bar Fines for all dancers (including coyotes) are 800 Baht till midnight, after midnight 600 Baht.

Draught beer was 60 Baht (It is 65 Baht officially) in happy hour.

They'll open at 2pm from 19th July.

  Review April 2013: Refurbed

I stopped by on a weekend evening to take a look at the changes since a refurbishment.

The dynamic of the bar is very much the same as before, but the bar does look smarter for a general rework of the fittings.

The major change is to rework the bar counter at the back. The messy DJ area and boss's cubby hole is now an area reclaimed to the bar. With the bar counter itself looking a lot more attractive. This back right area seems more for the Scandinavian regulars than for customers dropping by. It does not really command a good view of the stage so is probably best used as a hangout area.

There were 9 dancers in the bar when I visited with 3 on stage at any one time. This was a good ratio which left plenty of girls able to work the bar for lady drinks. There were 3 quite attractive girls and it was generally a decent line up for the bars in the Sois 13 area. Topless was the majority favoured dress code for the dancers.

There were a decent smattering of customers, and most had a lady by their side (or on their lap). It is probably the least hands-on bar of the local area but the hostessing was working OK anyway.

So very much as before, but looks a little nicer.

  News April 2013: Builders

Far East Rock closed for renovation. It re-opened pretty much as before but with black paint and lightened by a few blue garlands.

  Review from Malcolm, January 2012: Totally Different

Called in Far East Rock today on Soi 13/2. Totally different from my last visit in May.

The bar had just opened and some strange ritual. Going in which all the staff banged an ashtray or drink bin on a table or the edge of the stage whilst a naked girl ran around the bar about 3 times with a glass of something and dabbed some of the liquid on the other girls hands and all the tables. This ritual ended with the girl sticking her bare arse out of the door curtain and emptying the glass between her legs into the street. Ritual over back to normal.

8 girls on duty, all half decent, 3 dancing. Called one girl over to sit with me and had a pleasant 20 mins with her till she had to go dance.

Draught beer 60B. Lady drink 110B.

As I said last time I was there it must have been a bad day

  Review from Malcolm, May 2012: Uninterested

Went in Far East Rock on Soi 13/2 this afternoon and it was a disappointment since my last visit, a lot can happen around here in 2 years.

4 girls on duty, I think.  2 of the girls were topless. 2 girls dancing and when one came off stage, she disappeared into back when next girl started. Carried on like this for the 25mins. I was in there. The dancers had not the slightest interest in me or the one other customer in there.

Draught beer B50. Don't know how much lady drinks were as I never had the chance to buy one.

There was 1 girl on door duty.

  Review February 2012: Decline

After a period of enthusiasm after being taken into new ownership, the bar seems to have peaked and gone into a bit of a decline.

There were four girls dancing at a time, being either bikini clad or topless depending on the choice of the girls. Generally a bit below average, but there were two or three that could be beckoned over.

However they didn't seem overly keen on interacting with customers and seemed to prefer huddling together at the back left of the bar, safely out of range of customer signals. Not a 100% policy though, a couple of girls seemed to find customers to chat to.

Cheap drinks and a general lack of aircon daytime competition seems to keep the bar going during that period. But once the competition winds up in the evening, there are few that elect to drink at Far East Rock, and hence the early closing policy.

  Review September 2011: Better

My first visit since the change of management was in the afternoon, and I can report a definite improvement.

There were enough girls in the bar, so that they did not spend most of the time dancing. and so could spend a little bit of time sitting with the customers.

And indeed there were more customers there than I have seen for a couple of years. Not in any sense overcrowded though.

Some of the girls were young and attractive. Probably the best line up amongst the GoGos in that area. They seemed a little shy though, and the dress code was always bikini.

The bar has sensibly ended the idea of katoey welcome staff.

The bar has always been more of a daytime place than an evening place so any improvement in evening fare has still to be checked out.

  News from Ishi, August 2012: Happiness is not an expensive draft beer

Happiness has introduced a draft beer. It's 50 Baht during Happy Hour until 10pm but is nearly the most expensive in town at 100 Baht once Happy Hour ends at 10pm.

  Review July 2012: Developing a Niche

I visited at 10pm on a weekday evening.

The bar has the almost mandatory modern layout of a central stage with bench seating around the sides of the room. Otherwise there were stools around the stage.

When I entered there were 8 or so dancers. They were quite a mixed bunch but there were a few that caught the eye. They were mostly bikini clad. The vibe was good as the girls were playing to the audience, and they seemed to have a good rapport with the stage side spectators.

After a while the GoGo dancers gave way to a team of showgirls. These attractive girls started off in negligees and worked down to nothing. Again they seemed to chiming well with the audience.

The bar features loudish (but not silly loud dance music) and the overall atmosphere was quite lively

Actually the bar may be claiming a bit of niche as show place, the back bench was full with farang couples and there were a fair few Asian customers appreciating the show from stage side.

I suspect that more traditional GoGo farang customers were not so impressed. The few single westerners that stopped by while I was there departed after a single drink (and 2 were unimpressed by the lack of a draft beer). Given the positive show aspects of the bar, I think that the probable reason for short visits was the lack of interaction. There was not a single girl sitting with a customer.

I don't suppose for a moment that the girls were unfriendly or anything. I amused myself by dreaming up the silly theory that the lack of a draft beer drives away the customers searching for girls (and hence sitting with them buying lady drinks etc), whilst not being an issue to those getting their value from having a lively show to watch.

The bar seems to have made a positive start but I suspect that they will soon be introducing a draft beer so as to appeal to a wider customer base.

  Review from Durian Doug, June 2012: Happiness is...A busy opening

The bar has a rectangular stage with 6 poles and normally occupied by 6-8 coyote dancers. It also has a small cage/shower show area and usually empty. Customer seating is along the walls and on stools at tables, and stools around the stage.

During the hourly shows which lasted for about 15-20 minutes, dancers were topless and there were also lesbian nudes. The cage also provided a very enthusiastic lesbian show which even had all the staff watching.

As for the 50 girls, the bar has maybe 20 dancers. The rest were service staff and freelancers?

Bottled beer was 110 Baht. No draft available.

The opening was very rushed. It was too busy and very disorganized with no signage inside and TV's not working.

  News from Dick Farang, September 2014: Closed

Hot & Cold A-GoGo on Soi Post Office (Soi 13/2) seems to have closed, not really a surprise.

  Review December 2013: Low Ebb

Hot and Cold continues to trade as a GoGo but it has scaled back so far that it now must qualify as the smallest GoGo in town.

However it can still be a fun place to visit as it still retains its hands on tradition. Despite continuous claims to the contrary the bar usually has a couple of girls the right side of 25. And it is a friendly place to enjoy a very cheap drink.

Although as friendly as ever, the tiny operation means that it is a bit unreliable that a decent looking girl is working and available for fun.

It may not be fashionable to say this, but I still find it a good place to visit.

  Review December 2012: Upstairs Downstairs

Hot and Cold has moved downstairs since my last visit. Having to climb the stairs in the remote hope of finding an attractive dancer to sit on your lap proved too much for most customers, and the GoGo had dwindled to almost nothing.

The new area is very small, very cheap, and very traditional Hot & Cold. There is probably only enough seating  for 8 customers (and their fondle slabs).

At least being downstairs, there were a steady stream of people sticking their heads round the door for a gander. Actually a few stayed for a beer too.

The bar has also invested in a new sign.

And the best surprise of all was that there were 2 attractive dancers out of the 6 in attendance.

The small bar seems cuddlier and friendlier than before, and I was tempted to stay for the odd half dozen beers by one of the attractive girls on hand.

Understandably Hot and Cold has many detractors (probably the vast majority of GoGo goers), but if you are willing to shoo away the oldies, then I usually find there is plenty of good fun to be had.

  Review May 2012: Last Legs

I stopped by at a prime time on a Friday night and the bar was a bit of a disaster zone.. There were just 4 girls on duty and 2 of them have long past qualification for the usual definition of the word 'girls'.

Actually the warning signal were flashing even before entering. The bar no longer seems to have any welcome staff, and its just guess work as to whether to venture upstairs. A simple 'Open' sign would suffice but maybe the bar no longer has the budget for such extravagant expense.

Once inside there were 2 girls that were decently attractive. They were trying hard, but they were spread too thinly to administer the usual hands on Hot & Cold treatment to the 3 customers in the bar.

It all looks a bit grim, especially as I was one of the bars biggest fans.

  Review January 2012: Hot and Cold, New and Old

Hot & Cold has moved more or less next door, into a venue that was once a restaurant. I am not exactly sure what the purposes of the move was but it certainly wasn't to transform into a brand spanking new state of the art venue. In fact connoisseurs  of the seedy dilapidation will be pleased to know that the new venue is little better than the old. And where the new bar may score a few points for a new stage and Jacuzzi, the bar loses a bucketful of points for poor design.

First of all the new bar is upstairs, not the most welcoming feature for a bar. Potential first timers can be a bit dubious about upstairs venues. And just to add atmosphere the Hot & Cold bar designers have specially imported the dirt and grime from the previous bar to decorate the stairway. Surely they could have spent a little cash on a mop and detergent.

Upstairs the bar is quite large with a reasonably attractive central stage and a large Jacuzzi installation. Maybe the bar ran out of cash after these two features as half the bar seems unfinished and undecorated.

There are comfortable seats around the edges of the bar but most of these are badly placed and too far away from the stage. And in fact if there was a sudden surge of interest in the bar then there wouldn't be enough seats to cope.

I was a bit gobsmacked at the design and atmosphere of the new place. Even my pretty drinking partner dancing on my lap commented that I looked a bit unhappy. I was wondering if the bar had much of a future. I've had some great times there and would hate to see it fade away.

  News December 2011: Hot and Cold and Newer

Hot & Cold is on the move. Although not much of a move. It has taken over premises just a couple of units closer to 2nd Road. The workmen are in whilst Hot & Cold stays open in the existing and rapidly disintegrating venue. Saying that, there doesn't appear to much going on there in the afternoons these days.

Surely a brand spanking new venue will change the character of the bar. The current rundown venue is almost part of the charm.

  Review March 2011: Hot and Cold and Cooler

As mentioned whilst comment on Club Nevada, The Sois 13 are having something of a meltdown in customer numbers.

Hot & Cold is a shadow of its former self but at least the shadow still offers some good hands on fun.

Actually the bar is a bit more flexible than either Far East Rock and Nevada and scales down the number of dancing ladies to ensure that customers can maximise their time with a lady on the lap.

The bar recently let go a few ladies and a few oldies departed. There are usually still a couple of attractive girls around, but it is now highly likely that new recruits will move rapidly on to greener climes.

The decline in numbers now means that it is very hit and miss as to whether there is an opportunity for fun.

But there's still a reasonable chance of an enjoyable visit, which is more than can be said for many GoGos.

  Review September 2010: Customer Downturn

Hot & Cold has long since been one of my favourite bars. Unfortunately its does seem to be suffering badly from the downturn in customers.

Its still a friendly hands on venue with its heart in the right place, but it is struggling to retain many attractive girls. There's still a few oldies in attendance, which has been a feature of the bar for as long as I can remember, but there are now hardly any younger girls to make it worthwhile.

Saying that, I've still had some good recent sessions, but it does rather rely on my long time customer status getting me first dibs at the one or or two attractive girls on duty at any one time.

Hopefully a little bit of extra momentum should put things back to rights as we head towards high season...I hope.

  Review from Dave, December 2014: Overdressed

I popped into Kiss at Lk Metro on Saturday night.

I must say it was a very boring drink. The girls were overdressed and of a very poor standard and the music was very poor too.

 Review, May 2013: Traditional Style

Kiss is an old style GoGo perhaps similar to those to be found on Soi Post Office and Soi Yamato.

It tends to attract older locals, and older dancers. Probably predictable from the rock music (with videos) from the 70's and later.

The bar is a table dancing set up with about 3 - 5 girls dancing at any one time. The dancers cover all the the combinations of wearing skirts, knickers and bikini tops. There also seems a time in the evening before items of clothing can be dispensed with.

The bar isn't the most lively place as most customers seem to be nursing a lonely drink, but can be friendly enough if you make an effort. This maybe just a reflection on the number of customers preferring to sit alone. But as always I feel the bar would do better if the girls were more pro-active in searching out lady drinks.

Drinks prices are very reasonable.

I find the bar generally to be worth a look, but I am quick to cut my losses if there is nothing doing.

  Review, July 2012: Possibility of a  Kiss

Kiss is one of those bars that is a hit and miss as it depends on who is around at the time.

On the downside the bar has a high proportion of dancers older than average. Saying that, there  are sometimes some attractive girls too. On the upside, the bar has a good ethic and the girls are friendly. So if you are lucky and can snare a pretty girl, then all is good at Kiss. On another occasion, then it is a one drink and go sort of place.

The bar is one of the few remaining where table dancing is the main attraction. It is clear why such bars are getting rarer. The girl may be dancing right in front of you, but she is way too high and you end up not being able to see much, while also being made uncomfortable in the process.

The girls in Kiss dance in less than average GoGo clothing, but its not really the attraction that it should be. The best entertainment at Kiss is the girl who's sitting by your side. It can get quite hands on (but not quite like Baby Doll and the like), and the girls seem to know how to click with customers.

The beer is cheap and the music is old.

  Review, January 2012: Like the name says, the best chance of a kiss on the soi

Kiss has become my favourite GoGo within the LK Metro area. The area is clearly popular, but some of the most acclaimed bars, particularly Champagne and The Office are too popular, and there simply aren't enough girls to go round. Others bars in the area suffer from having too many coyote dancers with likely offish attitudes.

So Kiss stands out for possible the wrong reasons of not being overly popular, but the right reasons of having friendly and accommodating girls.

I guess one of the reasons for the lack of popularity is that table dancing does not make for a good auditorium show. The viewing angles are uncomfortable and the girls faces are lost in the shadows. So the bar has to counter this with a more interactive and personal service to keep the customers entertained.

This characteristic has the rather restraining consequence that the prettiest dancers tend to move rapidly on to the bars where they can get away with just dancing. So whilst such bars generally have a lower standard of dancer, there are usually a few that are still attractive, and so it is with Kiss.

The beer prices are very reasonable and it a pleasant place for a drink and a chat.

  Review, January 2011: Table Doubting

I rather predict that the layout of this bar will not work out well.

It certainly looks good. No problems on that front. It is basically a narrowish bar with a long line of table dancing positions. There is also a small unused stage towards one end an an unused Jacuzzi at the far end.

I for one do not find it very comfortable craning my neck upwards to watch dancers high above me and right in front of me. Its ok for a quick glance but not really comfortable for a long period.

I reckon if you did a scientific man-watching experiment at say Oasis, where there are seats with a dancing table in front of them, then I would postulate that customers will spend most of their time watching the more distant central stage with just an occasional glance at the girl towering above them.

The trouble with Kiss is that the long line of tables mean that there aren't any tables at the other side of the room where one can watch the dancing a bit more comfortably.

Table dancing had a bit of a fad a few years ago when there would be a bit of fun tipping the girls to squat down for a revealing look and play. But those days have long gone as the continuous tipping got a bit wearisome. Now I think table dancing only appears in bars as an add on. It provides a nice busy atmosphere where there is something going on wherever you look. The central stage is still the main focus though.

Otherwise the bar is farang run and seems a decent enough place. There is the mandatory cheap draft beer and most prices seem reasonable.

There were 3 girls dancing an unnecessarily long dance roster of 6 songs. They were dancing topless. The girls were about average which isn't bad in Pattaya. There were about 8 girls in total in the bar. Way too small a number, but its still early days.

I haven't found the girls to be particularly friendly on my couple of visits so far. But I guess that will change. If the bar wants to keep customers then they will need to provide good customer care to make up for the lack of comfortable dance watching options.

  Review by eyebee, December 2010: Early Days

First impressions: it's a table dance venue, and looks a bit like a mini Beach Club, with the same tables and upward pointing lights.

However there was not a lot on show. All the girls were wearing bras and skirts, with a few taking off their knickers.

Music was quite farang friendly (Queen, Robbie Williams, Alphaville's Big in Japan, Tina Turner etc.) and not too loud.

One problem I noted was that the girls were dancing on the tables in high heels Ė the tables will be scratched to hell in a few weeks, unless the owners change that policy.

It's early days yet, but the girls weren't really up to scratch (though I did see one honey in there). Hopefully things will improve with better girls and less clothing.

Draught beer was a reasonable 60 baht.

  Review from inpattayanow.com : Dec 2011: Ladyboy Onbsessed

I really don't know why the management of the Kitten Club/Obsessions GoGo continues to employ a few females in what is essentially a quite successful ladyboy boozer, other than pretending they are two separate bars with an imaginary divide. The bar currently has 8 girls and 35 ladyboys.

A few years ago Kitten Club garnered a reputation as a rip-off joint in terms of drinks prices, which were not being displayed, and some punters were stung with outrageous bills. That has now changed and things seem to have been well and truly cleaned up.

  Review from Pattaya-Live: Dec 2009: Strange

Kitten Club and Obsessions are 2 GoGo bars in one. They each have their own entrance but that lead to the same bar, a large GoGo bar with a central stage.

Kitten GoGo bar is a girl GoGo bar while Pattaya Obsessions is a Lady Boy GoGo bar. The left part of the stage and the left part of the bar are for girls and for girl oriented customers (real girls dance on the left part of the stage only) and the right part of the stage and the right part of the bar are for LB and LB oriented customers (LB dance on the right part of the stage only). Waitresses are either girls or LB and obviously are not limited to any part of the bar. Strange but interesting mix.

Real girls wear red, lady boys wear black.

  Review from Pattaya Today: Night March, June 2009: Ladyboys

The bar underwent a complete remodelling a few months back after being forced to close for some misdemeanour or other.

While the new layout is more attractive than the previous rabbit-warren incarnation, the overall quality of the dancing damsels is borderline freak show.

Apart from the ladyboys, the genuine girls dancing damsels are a mixed bunch. While a couple are arguably attractive (and given the lighting I think they may well have started life as boys), most are either overweight or just plain frightening.

Drinks prices are ridiculous for whatís on offer: 150 baht for spirits, 139 baht for a lady drink, and 79 baht for draught beer.

Not worth a cracker unless your tastes run to the gender-confused.

  News April 2009: Back

Kitten Club has re-opened with the promise of new water features. I'll leave it to somebody else to give it a look. It was closed with a notice on the door saying closed for being 2 sexy.

  Review from Pattaya Addicts, Feb 2008: Ladyboys

I paid 900 bath for two drinks. One soda for me and one breezer for the lady I barfined!

I decided to look into Kitten club because I had read that they had now moved the ladyboys to a separate bar. How wrong I was.

The service staff marched me right to the back of the bar and then 3 tall ladyboys descended on me like pigeons around fallen breadcrumbs.

  News from eyebee, Dec 2007: Split Kitten

Kitten Club seems to have split into two. There are now two doors; one saying Kitten Club and the other Obsessions. They look to be two separate clubs.

Now Obsessions in Bangkok's Nana Plaza is a ladyboy bar so there is the possibility that this is the case in Pattaya too.

Due to high prices and customer unfriendly policies such as unpriced bills in the bin, Kitten Club is on the Thai-Anxiety, "Never Again" list. So it may be a while before further details are available.

Kitten Club also has a large impressive new neon sign.

  Review from Dick Farang, November 2014: Pretty Soapy

Lady Love is located on Soi LK Metro at the previous locations of the Swedish restaurant Krogen (Swedish for The Pub) and of the Swedish bar Bolaget (Swedish for The Company).

It is a broad gogo that occupies three units. In the left unit (where Krogen used to be) are a soaping stage and a shower with seating around.

In the two right units (where Bolaget used to be) are a rather de-central stage and two tiers of seating.

Between the soaping stage and the main stage are some high tables with bar stools.

Two of the three soaping girls were really beautiful (something becoming scarce nowadays) and one of them got promptly barfined. Although they were completely naked the soaping girls only soaped their body from the waist down, with special attention for the intimate parts.

On the main stage I saw two teams of five sub-average coyotes and one team of six slightly better looking topless girls in strings.

The staff were not pushy at all.

There were several other customers, among them some bell-ringers.

Loud music.

Decent toilets.

Bottled Heineken 125 baht, during happy hour 75 baht.

  News July 2013: Decontracted

The management has announced that the bar no longer employs agency dancers.

  Review March 2013: Unloved

I stopped by in early evening and it was a totally underwhelming experience.

There were 3 other customers in the bar and 4 girls dancing on the centre stage. All the girls were coyotes in tiny shorts and solid bras. They were about average with one girl that stood out from the crowd. At the end of a few songs a second team of 4 more coyotes took the stage. However the pretty girl didn't hang round to work the audience, she changed up and took up her post outside as door bait.

There girls seemed friendly enough with a few smiles from the stage and a couple trying their luck for a lady drink with customers.

Happy hour drinks were reasonable at 75 Baht, which was a good job, as any more than that would have been very poor value for money.

Average girls, not hands on, no show, no nudity...nothing.

  News January 2013: Early Opening

The bar has introduced early opening at 4pm. There is also now a happy hour until 9pm when bottled beers and house spirits are 75 Baht.

  Summary Review December 2012: Mostly Agency Coyotes

There's a central main stage with a particular note that there are no mirrors in bar to occupy the attention of the dancers. There are other smaller stages too and a Jacuzzi.

There seem to be about 20 coyote dancers on hand. With several comments that they are not really keen on the barfine stuff. As a quid pro quo, they don't seem to working to a drinks quota so can be more relaxed about demanding lady drinks than in other bars.

There Jacuzzi girls are naked so the bar just about qualifies as a GoGo.

The music is kept at a decent volume.

  Review by jj, March 2013 : Barely doing the fanny shuffle

Re Las Vegas II & III

Early afternoon visit, soon after opening; moderate number of ladies in each establishment (7-9) with a range of options (young/old; slim/chubby) also a surprising number of customers at that hour, but not much interaction between dancers and customers.

2-3 ladies on stage doing 6 song sets, changing one dancer after 2-3 songs. Vast majority were bikini clad; one topless; some with no knickers and a band-aid for a skirt. All were barely doing the fanny shuffle.

Offered a lady a drink for her top; offer not taken. She did come to sit and flashed her boobs but not much hands-on action among any of the customers even those who seemed to be greeted as regulars.

Not sure why the common owner bothers with two establishments; nothing really to tell them apart. LV II is a shadow of its former self (SEP 2011 review).

  Review from Malcolm May 2012: Very hands On

Following a disappointing visit to Far East Rock, I got a much better reception in Las Vegas on Soi 13/1.

I was immediately pounced on by a very hands on girl albeit with many suggestions to go upstairs. Even the service girl had a quick grope whilst she took my order.

2 girls on stage at once in varying forms of knickerless undress including one with no knickers but kept her bra on??? There were about 7 girls on duty. Lady drinks B125. 1 girl on the door.

  Review by jj September 2011: Afternoon Delight

The rumor of knickerless Las Vegas girls is confirmed. Spent an enjoyable afternoon with two cuties from SiSaKet who spent more time out of their costumes than in; not that there was much there to begin with.

From 1300 til 1800 there are about 10 ladies who are more than willing to entertain both on the dance floor and the bench. Only dancing three song sets allows plenty of time for hands-on fun.

There was a steady flow of customers, most of whom were regulars, judging from the reaction of the ladies. Some were welcomed with open arms and others were kept at arms length. I'll never understand the rationale of guys who go to lady bars, order drinks and sit there and talk. Two sat watching the dancers but talked between themselves and ignored (and were ignored by) the ladies. Two more sat at the bar with their backs to the action. Puzzling......

Biggest drawback was the expensive (125 B) LDs which were only a shot glass of SangSom.

  Note December 2010: Rumours

There's rumors that Las Vegas has gone knickerless with barely a swatch for a skirt. Also reports of some cute dancers.

  Review August 2009: Regulars

A brief visit as a couple of familiar faces meant that I couldn't dally long.

There were just 2 dancing girls who were bikini clad, There were another half dozen girls on hostessing duty. The girls were not special, so it is more down to a good bit of personal attention to keep the customers entertained.

Most of what was going on in my short visit was pretty innocent chatting, but I rather guess that more fun could be had if the customers so wished.

A decent draft was served for the good price of 50 Baht.

It all seemed a steady sort of place where everyone looked content enough.

At least they had a few customers. I guess that there is a pretty regular crowd here. Perhaps even a few regulars that remember the naked pool played at the bars previous location in Jomtien.

  Review by Dick Farang August 2014 : Decent little sister of Las Vegas II

Las Vegas raffle ticketLas Vegas III on Soi Yamato (Soi 13/1) is the decent little sister of Las Vegas II, which is also on Soi Yamato.

If my memory serves me well, Las Vegas III started operations a couple of years ago during the renovation of Las Vegas II.

Las Vegas III is not too dark and the (rock) music is not too loud.

I saw eight relatively young dancers (under thirty years) in string bikinis, two of them on stage. Three of them were rather voluminous.

A 22-year old and very friendly, but obviously unaccustomed girl with a very poor command of English, who was rather tall and chubby and possessed an E or F (double D or triple D) natural rack, told me she had started only twelve days before.

No nudity on stage, but for a 20-baht note the girls revealed the contents of their bras and strings.

There was no mamasan to be seen and the most beautiful girl of the bunch barfined herself.

For most of the time I was their only customer.

A couple of days later there were many different girls also in black strings and this time four of them went topless, on and off stage.

Not unlike Las Vegas II, Las Vegas III offers a stapled lottery ticket with every drink or lady drink, but I have never won a free drink or barfine or whatever.

I was told that upstairs ST fun was 1,800 baht (300 baht for the room and 1,500 for the lady).

Chang draught 50 baht, bottled Heineken 110 baht, lady drinks 130 baht.

  Review September 2012: Playing the Slots

I visited the new Las Vegas III a few nights before Las Vegas I was closed for renovation.

The bar is styled as a traditional Soi 13 area gogo. It has a central stage probably big enough for up to 5 dancers. One side of the bar has bench seating. The other side of the bar is designed to cater for more of a hangout crowd. The seats are high stools round small tables making it a little easier for groups of mates to have a chat.

I usually describe bench seating as 'comfortable seating' but in this case it isn't. It looks like there are cushions, but in the fact the seats are uncomfortably hard.

There were quite a few girls in the bar and they were well above the Soi 13 standard. Perhaps the bar is making a special efforts in the early days of opening.

The girls were dancing 3 at a time and were adopting all the dress options between bikinis and nothing.

I'm not sure that the girls were hands on friendly though, certainly none of the half dozen customers had started the ball rolling on that score.

It is probably not worth making any judgements as yet especially the bar has now temporarily been joined by the girls of Las Vegas 1. However the bar has started with some attractive girls so that should make a good basis for a new bar.

  News, October 2011: Behind the Curtain

The bar is now divided in two with a big black curtain. The front section is a coyote bar with girls dancing in the windows and a live band.

The back half of the bar is a GoGo. The GoGo section hasn't really changed in layout and is essentially even worse than before. The comfortable seating along the back wall is simply an impossible distance from the stage.

The GoGo operation has been well squeezed by a poor layout, coupled with the surrounding area declining as a nightlife centre as it makes way for new hotels.

There were just two girls dancing, and there was a 3rd girl doing her rather tame stuff in a Jacuzzi.

There was another two or three guys who were being well looked after by the girls awaiting their turn to dance.

The mamasang was doing her bit to ensure that the smattering of customers were happy enough.

But really the GoGo was operating below critical mass and things don't look good.

  News, June 2011: Gone Coyote

The builders have been in and have installed windows. So now the bar is open to the world and coyote dancers have been installed. There are reports that the bar still has a GoGo section hidden behind a curtain.

  Review December 2010: Low Key

The bar was operating a pretty low key sort of way with around 15 girls in the bar.

Quite a lot were dancing but not many were baring very much. I was told this was down to a recent police visit causing a bit of alarm on the showing front.

There were a couple of decent looking girls on the dancing team but they put me off a bit by introducing themselves as a double act.

A friendly service girl informed me that the business seemed to have declined of late with departing customers often speaking of preferring the Soi 6 GoGos. I think that is probably just coincidence, and any decline is more likely due to duff western economies. But I did rather concur with the comment and duly wandered off to Soi 6.

  Review May 2010: Low Season Design Issues

I dropped by the bar at a reasonable time and the bar had a handful of customers, 8, I counted them. But the crazy thing was that the bar was effectively full.

The bar was designed in times of plentiful customers, but now there aren't so many around, the large bar design is proving useless.

There are loads of decent seats around the edge of the bar but these are around table dancing stages that aren't being used. These seats are way too far away from the main stage so just end up being dark and empty.

There are a couple of bays of seating, but most of the seats either face away from the stage or else have a restricted side on view blocked by posts.

The only other seats are the best in the house. There is a long bench with a decent view of the stage down the front wall. This bench was filled with 6 of the 8 customers. There are plenty of small stools around but, these were uncomfortable and last choice.

The bar had a dozen or so dancers with 6 dancing and 6 enjoying chatting to customers. So again the bar was effectively operating pretty near capacity with just 8 customers.

And soon there were 7 because a comfortable seat and a pretty girl by ones side is the basic requirement for a successful gogo of this type.

But at least the bar had 7 customers, who seemed to be enjoying the hands on entertainment.

  Review by jj, July 2009: A Mere Shadow

A mere shadow of its former self

After a long layoff, a visit to Classroom 2 (Soi 2) was in order. It was a mega-disappointment. Formerly operating like Windmill and Baby Dolls, C2 is now tame to say the least. The single lady in the shower was the only nekkid one. Precious few nipples were on display and gone were the naughty girls stage and the table dancing. The most endearing members of the staff were the service ladies.

At one point. my traveling partner and I comprised 2/3 of the entire customer level!

  Comments by jj & DavidT, April 2009: Flourishing in Class

I admit that the seating drawbacks noted. Also the diversity of the dress and entertainment seems a bit bizarre, yet somehow it all seems to work in the end.

But the dancers are regularly bar-fined. One day just this week there were only 5 left at 2AM; the servers were pressed into service as dancers.

C2 seems to be a late nite venue. Nothing much seems to be going on before 10pm and things pick-up rapidly thereafter.

Somehow this place seems to flourish.

Also noted that mamasang Larn has impressed on the management team

Mandarin is not a gogo anymore, now just a beer bar with ladyboys.

  Review June 2012: Low Ebb

I occasional read of a few visitors that have had a good time in Mandarin. But unfortunately it has lost too much momentum of late to make it worthwhile taking a look.

It is hasn't lost its potential for a fun time, it is just not very probable these days. There's been a bit of a slow down and there aren't enough girls in the bar to hope to find one that clicks.

The bar is not off the menu though, I always take a look as I pass to see if they have any attractive girls. But more often than not, the best I can do is remember the good old days there. I have fond memories of the place though. One of the naughtiest in Pattaya.

  Review April 2011: Strange

Half the time the bar looks pretty dead with no girls hanging around outside and I walk rapidly by. The other half of the time the bar looks pretty dead with no girls hanging around outside, but I go inside anyway. The bar still looks pretty dead but I sit down, and from out of nowhere the bar seems to locate a suitable drinking companion.

And half the time the girls proves to be one of the more playful I have come across in the soi.

In fact Mandarin has proven more of a guaranteed venue for good fun than any of the other dancing bar in Soi 6.

But for all that, I'm not sure I can recommend it to others as it always seems a little unlikely. But somehow it usually works for me.

 Review September 2010: Slowly Building Up

Perhaps a little surprisingly, I have found that Mandarin has proved the most enjoyable of the four dancing bars in the cluster at the Beach Road end of Soi 6.

Mandarin seems at a bit of a disadvantage as it hasn't established a presence with any girls on the 'racing line' where potential customers stroll by. It seems to suffer from being a little blocked off by street parking.

Anyway the bar has now built up just enough girls such that if there are no decent looking girls on the door, there are two or 3 more inside dancing that may be worth a look. Some of the girls now dance topless which really wasn't the done thing until Passion opened up opposite.

Perhaps the bar doesn't attract the prettiest girls on the soi but there's usually a couple of girls keen to oblige the customers with some hands on fun. Sometimes I rather think that it is neediness that motivates the girls

Saying that, there was actually a fair smattering of customers on my last visit. Previously I have generally been the only customer.

Drinks are reasonably priced.

  Review from Dick Farang, October 2014: Beware

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

  News, August 2014: For sale

The GoGo is still operating but has erected a 'for sale' banner.

  Review from Dick Farang, August 2014: Decentralised

Miami on Soi Post Office (Soi 13/2) is one of the newest and probably the cleanest and clearest gogo in this area. It is a daytime gogo that opens from about 2 p.m. until about midnight.

Inside it is spacious enough, but the small central stage is rather a de-central stage as it is in the first half of the area. This is not a big issue as the scarce customers can easily be seated in this first half of the area.

I counted one utterly uninterested young girl, one ladyboy and five fuglies. Three of them were on stage at any time. Most of them were wearing too big bras and/or too big pants. No nudity.

The mamasan looked better than most of her "girls".

Nevertheless, about a year ago, I had a very enjoyable experience there with a long gone girl Noi. If my memory serves me well the room was nice enough and included in the barfine.

Bottled Heineken was still 110 baht.

  Review December 2012: If you are going to start  somewhere, you may as well start at the bottom

I stopped by in the early evening and it was all very disappointing.

The bar is quite traditionally laid out with a smallish central stage. There is comfortable bench seating to the right, a little bench seating to the left, but for the most part there is a long bar counter with a few swivel stools.

The bar looks a little incomplete as there is a large unused space behind the central stage. Perhaps space for a Jacuzzi stage or something later. But in the meantime it leaves a lot of the back right bench seating overlooking exactly nothing.

There were just 2 dancers taking turns and each were dancing for 3 songs. Topless was the dress code. The dancers were below average. There were however 2 other bikini clad girls who were excused dancing. One was below below average, but the other was attractive. However she was enjoying a chat with her friend rather than doing anything that may improve customer experience in the bar.

Draft beer was 50 Baht but that has already been reduced from the 60 Baht reported at the opening, a few days ago.

All very dreadful but at least its bound to better next time.

  Note from Pattaya Talk, August 2012: Quick Return

The bar has the excellent policy of a short dance rotation of just one song for a dancer with a lady drink in front of her.

  Review June 2012: A Boring Day at the Office Dear?

I stopped by around 9pm. It was not an impressive visit.

There were only coyote dancers and they were well covered up with shorts and solid bras and so on. There were just three girls dancing at a time with a rotation of 1 per song. The dancers were actually quite attractive though.

There wasn't much in the way of interaction of dancers with customers either. As is often the case when a bar employs coyotes, the service girls were the best bet for company. My friendly waitress kindly pointed out the there were a couple of more revealing girls just about to start a Jacuzzi show and that maybe the coyotes get a bit more friendly as the evening wears on.

For all the hype about Soi LK Metro as the next Walking Street, the soi seems to have a general problem with a high proportion of over-dressed and under-friendly dancers. My advice to flesh seekers is to stick to Kiss, Paradise and Submarine.

  Review October 2011: How Was Your day at the Office?

There's an old adage saying that one's experience of a bar can change from day to day and hour to hour.

I find that this description aptly fits The Office. It is basically a well run bar that ticks most of the boxes that it should to make a good GoGo.

It has a good team of attractive dancers, perhaps second only to Champagne. On my latest visit, there were about 8 girls on stage of which half were topless. Actually this was better than on previous visits, The Office/MASH/Submarine group of GoGos often seem a little nudity challenged and sometimes seem more coyote than gogo.

The girls are generally friendly and most seek out a customer for a chat, but sometimes I have been in early and the girls don't seem very interested. Perhaps the bar needs to build up a bit of momentum before the girls are spurred into action.

But sometimes the bar can get very crowded. I tend to do a quick U turn when I see the bar is full. There are then far too many guys for the number of girls available and there is little chance of any interaction with the girls. A bit like Champagne just down the soi. However spectator mode seems to keep plenty of customers entertained, so they must be doing something right.

  Review by Greeny December 2010: OK crowd

OK crowd, girls interested in interaction except that they are always dancing - they seem to have not much time to chat before they are up and at it again. Hard to connect with a girl.

Prices no different from Walking Street that I could detect and of course quality of girls is much lower.

  Review November 2010: Flashy

The Office is LK Metro's newest bar. About 10 minutes into a visit, the white lights flashed, the music stopped and the half-dozen, half-dressed dancers sprinted for the dressing room.

No police plodded through the door and the clothes came back off as the music went up, but the long arm of the law is obviously reaching past Walking Street.

For the record, The Office is still largely dreadful. Why the bar was about two-thirds full on a Monday night leads one to speculate that its clientele must prefer old, fat single mothers. Diligent fun seekers, however, can still find one or two needles in the haystack.

  Review September 2010: Improvement

Another visit at an early hour to see how the bar was progressing. And indeed the bar has improved.

First of all the dancers had dropped a fair bit of clothing and about half were now dancing topless.

But best of all, the girls were being more pro-active in seeking out customers. In fact the lady that approached me suggested that the boss was now insistent that customers sitting only should at least be asked if they would like company. Surely a policy that will stand the bar in good stead.

Anyway I left with a positive feeling that bar will quickly become established on soi LK Metro/Soi Buakhao circuit. And judging by the good crowds at Champagne and Oasis, there should be plenty of custom to go round.

  Review August 2010: Room for Improvement

I stopped by at an earlyish hour a few days after the soft opening.

First impressions are that the bar looks the part. It has a central stage with a Jacuzzi extension. There are two tiers of narrow bench seating down the sides of the bar and a couple of bays near the door. The back benches have a few long stretches with no access which will probably be avoided by customers.

The music was at a reasonable volume and included a few rock classics I hadn't heard in a while.

The drinks prices were very reasonable with a 60 baht draft and bottled beer at 85-95 Baht. Nuts were provided too.

So really the basics were in place.

There were a few attractive hostesses in office attire milling round but the bar connections suggested that some of these may be not interested in anything beyond being bought lady drinks. Up to them.

There were 12 dancing girls perhaps a little below average although there were a couple of attractive girls. This actually isn't too bad for a bar starting out. It takes a bar with a decent turnover before the bar can command the better girls.

The dancers were well overdressed though, 11 out of the 12 were closer to coyotes than gogo dancers. The dress code was generally knickers under negligee style shorts and a solid bra. One girl had a flapping open blouse that just about rescued the bar from being re-designated as a coyote bar.  The girls were organised into two shifts of 6 dancers

None of the dancing girls were being friendly with customers after their dance stint.

So for the moment, the bar doesn't really offer much for those that like interactive dancers  nor those like to see their dancers nude. But it looks as if the basics are in place that will probably allow for improvement.

Still there were actually a goodly number of customers stopping buy for a look, but mostly stopping for a quick drink and then off.

Oscars on Soi LK Metro is a rather broad, nearly square gogo. It has two tiers of bench seating on the right-hand side and high tables and stools on the left-hand side. The central stage is broad enough and also not too high. There are also some low stools along the stage.

The lighting is better, i.e. not too dark, than at many places.

At my visit there were about twenty dancers and many of them were hiding. They were all clad in black, some in strings and some in big bottoms, no coyotes any more. Whereas the scarce slim girls were wearing black tops, the majority of their fatter sisters were wearing black fishnet camisoles, a trick that could not even fool a drunken sailor. Five of them were on stage and they went on stage one at a time. I saw only one (slim) girl take off her bra. The dancers had their numbers (and nicknames) written on a leg or an arm in fluorescent yellow paint.

The music was not overly load and some kind of late rock pre-disco mix.

Around 9 p.m. there were a handful of customers.

As I did not use the toilets I cannot confirm if a tip is due.

Bottled Heineken (probably happy hour price) 80 baht, lady drinks 145 baht.

 News October 2014: New Owners

The bar has been sold and is no longer associated with the Booze Lounge Bars and Infinity A-GoGo on Walking Street.

 Review February 2014: Oscar Winner, Best 2nd Unit Stage Lighting Technician

Oscars is one of several new bars, all with the same basic design, ie an attractive curvy long thin central stage.

There were two teams of half a dozen dancers. One team was totally coyote. The other was a bikini team with several taking off their tops. An average line up, but average is pretty good in Pattaya GoGos.

The girls didn't seem particularly fussed about mingling with customers, so given that every alternative dance shift was almost street wear, them the bar doesn't really offer great entertainment value.

The bar offers decent drinks prices, fair polices and an ordered farang run management.

Perhaps worth a draft beer to see if you hit off with a dancer, but the odds of being entertained for more than one drink look low.

 Review from Malcolm, January 2014: Tops and Bras

Called in Oscars, LK Metro last night around 9-30. Was in for 30 mins.

Not much flesh on display. All girls in shorts and tops with bra's and knickers under. Not really a GoGo.

Normal layout with centre stage. We were sat at the door end and the dancers at that end were very energetic. Don't know if that if the norm or because a guy kept stuffing notes down their shorts.

Bottled beer B120.

 Review from Sedrik, July 2013: Facing the Music

A midnight visit with the bill numbered as 110th for the evening.

The bar is not a paradise for me, 16+ girls, with a total of almost 1000 kilos!!

There were a couple of good looking ladies, but the others were not attractive from my point of view.

but at least the music was much better than that just experienced at Crystal Club

99 Baht for my vodka-lipo, made it the best standard priced cocktail in any GoGo I tried.

  Review December 2012: Paradise Re-found

I stopped by early evening just before Christmas.

It was my first visit since the recent change of management. I'd read a few mixed reviews about the venue so I thought I would look for myself. As it turns out I could see where both sides of the debate were coming from.

The bar was doing a decent trade. There were 4, then 5 girls dancing on the central stage with a mixed dress code from bikini down to nothing. There were 2 or 3 attractive girls on show amongst the perfectly respectable line up. Perhaps in the previous reincarnation of the bar there were a few more cuties, so generating some of the more negative comments.

But on the positive side, the girls seemed to be friendly and approachable, there is a chatty manager and the place had an amiable atmosphere. Drinks are cheap and the girls are keen to go.

So maybe a little more modest than before, but still a good place to visit. And the bar still has more nudity on show than most LK Metro Bars, which seem to have to put up with a high percentage of coyote dancers.

  News October 2012: Sweethearts in Paradise

Paradise A-GoGo has new owners who are well known in Walking Street where they own Sweethearts A-GoGo.

Johan has now outlined the vision for Paradise and it is to provide traditional GoGo pleasures with plenty of nudity and good value drinks prices. Expensive coyotes and agency models are not going to be found in Paradise.

Connections are hoping that customers will find a girl or two that are attractive enough to barfine, and that expectations for compensation will be reasonable.  Drinkers will hopefully find a girl or two that is fun and friendly, and drinks prices will be reasonable enough to make for an enjoyable visit.

The previous friendly manager Paul is continuing in the job.

Sounds a good approach to me.

  Review July 2012: Not quite paradise but a good place to be

I visited quite early in the evening a day or two before a police raid, so things may have changed.

Everything seemed to be ticking along quite nicely. the bar had fair amount of girls and customers, but was not really what you would call busy.

There were 5 dancers on the central stage at anyone time. They were wearing various amounts of clothes but typically less clothes than the average for Soi LK Metro, where coyote dancers abound.

There were several girls that were well attractive and the rest were probably average. Surely not a bad line up.

The were several girls doing the rounds looking for customers to entertain, and there were several that seemed to prefer hiding away in the dressing rooms. Most customers seemed to have been given an offer of company so good marks on the hostessing front.

Drinks prices were reasonable.

It Would be a shame if the venue has been messed up by the police visit.

  Review January 2012: High

I stopped by quite early during the week after New Year.

The first, middle and last impression is of the very high centre stage. I haven't see one that high since Babe Watch, long since closed in the Covent Garden Complex. I cannot see the point of elevating the girls into the ceiling shadows. Surely closest is best in a GoGo bar.

Anyway there is a double bank of tiered bench seating as the main viewing area. The lower tier has an even more neck craning angle than the high tier.

It is clearly early days for the bar and the dancer count was just 6.  A couple were attractive enough though. 3 were dancing at any one time. The basic dress code was gogo skirt and bikini top, but one girl has a string affair that nearly counts as nude.

There was a cheap draft at 55 Baht and the service girls were friendly.

Clearly too soon to judge...but really that high stage...

  News January 2012: Opened

  Review from Dick Farang, October 2014: A Passion for Soi 6

Passion Dance Club is the last remaining gogo on Soi 6 after the closure of Fun Seeker Dance Club.

I have never understood the enthusiasm of many people for the Soi 6 bars and after the walk of shame I often end up drinking a beer at Passion Dance Club before heading for Beach Road.

Passion Dance Club is a more or less square bar with bench seating along the walls. The minimalistic central stage is made of metal with five chrome poles and a pillar on it. In the space under the central stage are some unused chairs, not really stools. There is also an unused small stage in the back.

It is difficult to know how many dancers there are exactly because many of them are hiding in the back room until their next dance stint.

Their dance roster is not very clear. There are two or three or four or five of them on stage and the (very) old mamasan, who has come from the Soi Arab area, does not seem to care.

The dancers are clad in red bikinis: strings and big tops. No nudity. Even the bad lighting cannot hide how ugly most of them are.

The music is very monotonous.

There are also about five hostesses now.

Nevertheless Passion Dance Club seems to attract a steady flow of customers.

All-in price for upstairs fun is 1,300 baht, which reflects the Soi 6 norm.

Bottled Heineken 115 baht, a tad too expensive for the area.

  News from Ishi, January 2014: New Management

The former owner of Toyz became a new owner. So new mamasan is the former mamasan of Toyz(Catz and Private Dancer)

  Review October 2011: Chilling

Being a creature of habit I always start a stroll down Soi 6 starting from the 2nd Road end. And more often than I would expect, no girl stood out as a potential drinking partner for the entire length of the Soi.

So now as I get to the end of the So I like to find a bar with half an hours worth of aircon and a couple of cold beers whilst I consider my options. Maybe to try another cruise of the soi or else hop on a baht bus down to Walking Street.

Anyway there are 3 bars that fit the bill where you pop in without selecting a girl first and chill whilst being entertained by dancers. OMG is a bit of a write off at the moment, it hasn't really gelled as a dance bar. My favourite is Mandarin where there can be good hands on fun, but unfortunately it is often lacking enough girls and is therefore unreliable. So Passion becomes the default choice as it is very reliable for having pretty girls on the stage and enough atmosphere to let the time fly by.

Passion is also the closest in style to a traditional Walking Street GoGo. It usually has 3 or 4 girls dancing, a couple sitting around and the rest sitting outside. This sitting outside seems to be the main difference to a traditional GoGo and is presumably a nod to the Soi 6 ethic of being able to pick up a girl on the way into a bar.

The beer is cheap and cold, as is the aircon. Excellently fitting the chill out criteria, exactly as required.

  Review from Lean June 2010: A Good Time

My visits to this club were enjoyable, and the place rates a return on my next trip to Pattaya........First, Heineken is cold, cheap 60B..... Second, I found the dancers attractive and eager on all of my visits.........Third, showers within the rooms upstairs, versus shared.....

One girl in particular, remembered me from a visit when I just had beer.......told her I'd return, and sure enough, was ready and waiting for me when I came back........gave me quite a experience upstairs....possibly the best on my whole vacation........

I do believe the better looking girls will go for the guys who are not fat, old, and balding........being trim and fit, I had 3 dancers going for me at one time on one visit.......maybe the word got around that I tipped well.

It may be my first stop when I return in January.

  Review June 2010: Taking a Break

I find Passion very conveniently located to take a beer after a first pass of Soi 6, and to take a breather whilst deciding what to do next. I especially enjoy the good aircon.

The bar is attractively designed with a fair amount of traditional chrome. There is comfortable bench seating around 3 sides of a square stage.

The bar usually has 4 or 5 dancers on the central stage and the small table stage at the back. The girls are generally topless.

There's usually a fair range of girls with always some being very pretty.

Drinks prices are very reasonable and short time fun is available more at Soi 6 prices than Walking Street levels.

Plenty of hands on fun to be had to encourage the customers a bit.

This side of it has never seemed to work out well for me though. The prettier girls seem to either be a little bit selective, or else seem to shoot outside to act as door candy as soon as their dance stint is up.

But for me its success is being the only place on Soi 6 where one can have a beer in the cool without committing to a lady at the door.

  Review November 2009: First Impressions

They say first impressions count, and mine was to trip up over a not very visible step at the front door.

But once safely inside, things soon looked up. The bar is a little smaller than Betty Boup opposite and is attractively decorated with a chrome thene. It is basically a square with comfortable bench seating around the walls. The square central stage is quite large and is set lower than most. There are stools with backs around the stage.

The music covers a fair range of genres but is basically there to be danced to. It is perhaps a little loud but it is after all, a dance club.

The girls made for a very impressive line up, probably about the best I've seen for an opening day. One of the advantages of running two bars is the flexibility to move girls around as needed.

There were only 2 or 3 girls dancing as most were occupied being hands-on friendly with the customers. Exactly as it ought to be. A quick look at the white board, showing plenty of barfines and the likes, suggest that this approach was working well.

The drinks prices are very customer friendly too.

So a good first impression, apart from the doorstep that is.

  Review from Billy Baht, January 2013: Compliments to Queen's management

I was enticed in by the 60 baht Draft beer sign. Yeah I like a bargain

Staff is efficient, quickly finding you a seat and taking your order. The draft beer was a large mug and tasted great (sorry I forget which brand it was)

Now for the good part- the girls were really dancing, some great moves and making eye contact with the customers like they actually enjoyed working there! One little spinner in particular had fantastic timing and she moved so well that I would go back just to watch her, she was that good! Then there was a show, a tallish Thai girl that did an acrobatic show on the chrome pole that seemed to defy gravity. She clutched the pole with leg and or arm pressure and her gig was nothing short of amazing. I heard several Blood helly! comments from the crowd.

I have no idea about take away or ladydrink prices, but the eye candy was to my taste- free!

Compliments to Queen's management

  Review, June 2012: A bit of Walking Street on Soi LK Metro

I stopped by at about 10pm on a weekday evening.

The bar is immediately impressive as a large, stylish bar, designed as per several of the newer Walking Street GoGos. It is as large as a GoGo can be with a fashionable long and narrow central stage.

There is bench seating down the sides. There's also a small stage with over dressed girls and a Jacuzzi with under dressed girls.

The central stage was crammed quite full with dancers. There were two basic teams, one in bikinis (not a single girl dancing topless) and these were switching with a team of over dressed coyotes.

There are also shows which seem to have impressed with pole acrobatics for one show and the girls getting naked in another show.

There were plenty of girls being interactive. I was approached by a knowledgeable girl who I first met years ago in Ark A-Gogo (before it got flooded out). We had a good chat but she was a bit hardened in the lady drink demands department.

Actually this was maybe as you would expect from a Walking Street GoGo like Iron being cloned in LK Metro.

The drinks prices are well set for the bar to muscle in on the existing LK Metro trade. The quality of the shows and generally attractive girls will also shake up the local competition.

On the other hand it was all a bit let down by the excess of clothing and perhaps a feeling that it will attract slightly harder and pricier girls.

  Review from Durian Doug, June 2012: Grand Opening

I visited Queen Club's Grand Opening on June 2 at 9:30 pm for about 2 hours.

As you enter the club:

  • it has one long stage with 6 dancing poles and was occupied by 2-3 topless ladies followed by 4-6 coyote bikini clad dancers
     
  • at the front left side of the club, there is a table dancing area with 1-2 coyote dancers (occasionally topless)
     
  • at the back left is a jacuzzi occupied by 1-3 naked girls, offering hands-on audience participation

Shows:

  • costumed ladies descend from the second floor down a pole one at a time, usually ending up topless & lesbian.
     
  • gymnastics shows featuring 1 or 2 ladies doing horizontal pole dancing
     
  • lesbian shows using rings above the jacuzzi

Prices:

  • bottled beer from 100 Baht
     
  • all ladies drinks 125 Baht

The Queen Club has the same owners as the Iron Club on Walking Street and offers great entertainment value.

It has set a new standard for agogo bars around Soi LK Metro as well as many on Walking Street.

See Google map of LK Metro bars

  Review from Durian Doug, May 2012: Horizontal pole dancing

I visited Queen Club on May 27 at 10:30 pm for about 1 hour.

Queen Club Agogo is directly opposite Office A-GoGo and officially opens June 2.

It has a long stage with two tall poles and four of standard height. The stage normally has 5 - 6 coyote dancers.

There was a gymnastic show (11pm) featuring two different acrobatic ladies, dressed in bikinis, doing what I call horizontal pole dancing. The second lady ended up topless. Quite impressive and probably from the Iron Club.

Chang bottled beer was 105B.

  Notes from Ishi, May 2012: All coyote.

Queen Club opened on Soi LK Metro. On the opening night there were nearly 20 dancers in the bar, and  all were coyotes.

I heard that there is Jacuzzi show which starts after midnight.

No draught beer, bottled beer is from 100B.

  Review from Dick Farang, November 2014: Red and White

Sexy Girls A-GoGo on Soi 8 seems to have changed hands. Anyway, I did not see and hear the (previous) noisy owner.

At first sight the interior had remained unchanged, but the jacuzzi and the fireman's pole seemed to have been kept for decoration only.

When I saw the dancers I could hardly believe my eyes. There were about a dozen of them, varying from fat to very fat. They were clad in red skirts with broad white elastics. Half of them were topless and the other half were wearing red-and-white sailor-style tops. Three to five of them were on stage at any time.

There were also a waitress and a gay waiter, but I did not see a mamasan.

The music was blaring, no more 1960ies, 1970ies and 1980ies.

Shortly after 9 p.m. (not really early for the Soi 7 & 8 area) I was the only customer.

Bottled Heineken 120 baht.

  Review January 2012: Show her the brass, and the brass rubbing will follow

Well what can I say, I've tried all the go go bars in Soi 7/8 but always go back to this little haven...

The music is quite good, but who give a monkey's about music when its well stocked full of eye candy, I have found the staff to be helpful and courteous.

Well I usually stay in the hotel opposite for a couple of night at the start of my stay, Eastiny Palace, you have to pay a fine to take your little Thai darling back, but its a good clean hotel. Its my personnel choice...

Anyway where was I.... Yes I've used this establishment for 3 or 4 years and is usually great, I've taken many a little flower out of this place back to my honeymoon suite opposite.

To be honest I don't notice the prices, maybe am a champagne Charlie, like I give a dam. I've taken many of my friends to his place and never heard of anybody complain of the prices.

The trick with this place is to splash a little cash at first, you know the old Thai motto, no money, no honey . Then when you have you little Thai darling of you choice, you ask to take her up stairs to the pool bar up stairs. I like this spot because its nice and quiet and you can get a good oggle at the birds before they slide down the fireman's pole and start their shift...

Ohh, small word of warning, on my last trip to this establishment, my friend, Kenny Wenny, nearly fell down the fireman's pole whilst throwing ping pong balls to the ladies down stairs.

The last time I was in I was already with my Thai girlfriend of 6 years, she bats both ways, so she made her choice and the 3 of us went back to the honeymoon suite and we spent the rest of the night looking at my vast stamp collection. The next morning we spent that brass rubbing..... It was nice to watch our little friend doing a Bambi out the door, I think the brass rubbing wore her out.

  Review April 2011: Disappointing

Sexy Girls A-GoGo has proven disappointing over the last couple of visits.

The previously reported issue of too many girls dancing too long still exists but on my last visits the girls were all wearing too many clothes too.

This seems now seems to be one of those gogos modelled on Happy. The girls dance for ages and the customers sit alone, sipping profitable drinks, whilst waiting for wonder.

But the Happy model rather requires top notch girls to make it all work. Sexy Girls does have a good share of attractive girls, but not quite good enough to make up for the overdressing and lack of opportunity for good personal customer care.

There are a couple of naked girls who work the Jacuzzi but it doesn't really make up for the rather underwhelming customer experience.

  Review December 2010: Dance Too Long

Sexy Girls A-GoGo has got a fair bit going for it. In particular, it has a fair few decent looking girls, especially for a small bar.

There's also a Jacuzzi with the usual naked soapers, and the bar is now quite spacious. There is a reasonably priced draft beer and a good service team.

The only real downer is that the girls are set on a ludicrously long dancing spell over the course of a two level stage. I do not really know what the top level is in aid of, it is too high to provide much point to downstairs viewers.

And because there are too many dancers packed on the stage, there aren't really enough left over for hostessing duties. So the likelihood is too high of a lonely drink whilst 'waiting for wonder'.

A bit of a shame really as the girls are quite friendly in the short time they have available for hostessing.

  Review May 2010: Narrow Minded

Sexy Girls A-GoGo has re-opened after a brief downtime while it was knocked though into a next door unit.

The end result is that Sexy Girls has become the widest narrow bar in Pattaya.

Rather Bizarrely, the bar has retained the bench seating especially designed for the previous very narrow bar. Previously there was not even enough width for a foot rest, so the drinks tables were ingeniously designed to provide a crossbar acting as the foot rest. These bench seats still run down either side of the newly expanded bar.

The old long strip stage has been replaced by a smart curvy central stage with the addition of an upper level stage with a glass floor.

There is also a large Jacuzzi but this still needs a bit of building work.

So for the moment the bar is more or less the same as before except wider. And although it obviously allows for more customers it is actually worse than before as one is a fair bit further away from the dancers. The dancing on the upper level of the stage is a waste of space gimmick, as the girls are too high and the lighting is too dark.

There were 10 girls dancing, 7 on the lower stage and 3 on the upper.  There were some pretty girls on stage too, but they were all bikini clad, hopefully just as short term measure. The girls were dancing 10 songs which is nothing short of ludicrous for anyone waiting for a girl to return from her dance stint.

I rather guess that the aircon is still the same as for the narrow bar as it was getting a little uncomfortably warm.

There were a few friendly girls offering a bit of hands on fun, but the prettier girls seemed to be hiding on the upper balcony maybe to avoid the hands on customer care part of the work.

  Review May 2010: More Sexy

It looks like the bar has got plans to expand having taken over half of the next door bar. When I stopped by the main bar was still the same narrow bar it has always been. But there was a new space that had appeared at the back for toilets or changing rooms or something.

Perhaps as investment for an expansion the bar had taken on 3 or 4 very pretty girls last spotted at New Living Dolls One.

The bar seemed to be doing quite well with several girls extracting lady drinks from smiling customers. I have a feeling the bar would do even better with a few more of the girls assigned to customer care rather than the overlong 7 song dance roster that the girls and customers endure.

No spare ladies for me so I checked bin after the traditional single beer.

  Review Jan 2009: Law of Averages

I haven't got past the first drink at this bar for quite a while now.

Mostly they just have too many girls dancing and not enough schmoozing with the customers. I really don't know why bars like to have a high proportion of girls dancing, especially at the B grade bars, where the girls are not exactly eye candy.

The bar likes to have about 5 dancers on the central narrow stage and one on the balcony. They dance either bikini clad or topless. There is also a Jacuzzi but this is just for show, not participation.

Other customers have been a bit luckier in tying down a girl for company so surely there are a few customers who will rate the bar. But the law of averages will dictate that this will be a minority.

Drinks prices are reasonable with a draft beer at 65 Baht.

  Review from Sedrik July 2013: Very Good Looking

Visited at 10:30.

A very busy gogo with a very good dancing roster. There were 20+ very good looking ladies on duty.

About 1/3 were fully nude, 1/3 were topless, and 1/3 were coyote. There were also a few good shows. Almost all the ladies are very friendly.

The bar employs 2 experienced mamasans.

The barfines was 1000 Baht at the time,  but it seems they have lowered the price in the last few days.

And what a difference. Showgirls was about half full with customers, not bad for the early hour.

The layout of the bar is very cluttered and the extensive mirror wall adds to the visual confusion. However this doesn't nothing to harm the fun filled atmosphere. The mirrors reminded me of a fairground maze, all it needs is a little optical distortion.

The stage was occupied by a cast of coyotes that were generally smiling, checking out the audience, and interacting with some of the stage side customers.

After a certain number of songs, there was a full change of dancing team. A full crew of topless girls took over the entertainment.

Meanwhile there was a group of guys in the back left corner of the bar who were monopolising the available hostesses. They were clearly having fun and with the girls perched on their laps.

There were also dancers doing good hostessing work amongst the customers in the stage side comfy seats.

The bar could have done with a few more girls to keep even more of the customers happy, but the overall atmosphere was definitely that of customers and girls enjoying a good time.

  Review from Malcolm, January 2013: Daytime Coyote

Called in Showgirls, Soi LK Metro this afternoon about 3-00 pm. Around 12 customers.

Dancers were in shorts and tops, not much flesh on display.

Draught Chang 60B.

Interesting toilets, the urinals are in the shape of open mouths.

  News January 2013: Afternoon Opening

The bar has announced that it will open in the afternoons from Monday 7th January. There will be happy hour prices from 2-8pm.

  News December 2012: Lap Dancing

The upstairs GoGo/coyote bar didn't prove a success and it was closed. Reports suggests that the concentration of girls on the ground floor have resulted in much better reviews from the bar.

As of around Christmas, the bar will now try to sell the upstairs as the VIP Lap Dance Lounge.

  Review from Durian Doug of www.thai-100.com, October 2012: Looking Up

I visited Showgirls A-GoGo on Oct 5, 2012 and stayed there for the massive rain that night for 2-3 hours, before wading through ankle deep water on Soi LK Metro and knee deep water on Soi Diana and Soi Buakhaow.

The downstairs is badly screwed up and agree with Ishi's comments. Go directly to the second floor stairs if you can negotiate those seated or standing around.

The second floor part is much bigger and lots more girls, some coyote in the window visible from Soi LK Metro, as well as various cages, some dancing topless on the second floor glass ceiling of the first floor.

The third floor is for parties and short time.

There is a glass elevator between the second and third floors which moves up and down with a coyote dancer visible from Soi LK Metro.

See Updated Google map of Soi LK Metro.

  News from Ishi, October 2012: First Impressions

Show Girls on Soi LK Metro also opened on 4th October. Initial comments centred on warm beer and a rather poor layout of the downstairs bar.

Seems best to try upstairs. Drinks prices are reported to be higher than the Soi LK norm.

Early reports say that there is no nudity and that the girls are fully clothed. Maybe just a coyote bar for the moment.

  Review from Dick Farang, November 2014: Solid Silver

Silver Star A-GoGo on Soi 8 is a gogo that I often walk past but seldom enter.

It is less cramped and less noisy than its sister gogo Silver Star 2 on Soi 7.

Although Silver Star has often been closed for renovations, not much seems to have changed inside.

I guess it is Thai-Chinese owned as there are some Chinese style cribs.

On my last visit there were girls in all shapes and sizes, but to my surprise not all of them were as old, fat and ugly as they used to be and they also seemed less hands on than in the past.

There were naked dancers with the typical Silver-Star-2 attire, i.e. yellow-green transparent veils around their waists, (with low numbers such as 03, 04 and 05) and dancers in black or red bikinis with big bottoms (with higher numbers such as 43, 44 and 45).

There were five dancers on the central stage at any time and after each song one dancer left the stage and another one went on stage and this was not as chaotically done as at many gogos, but strictly by ascending numbers (..., 03, 04, 05,..., 43, 44, 45,...).

When not on stage their main activity was eating together in a corner.

There were also some naked girls cavorting in the Jacuzzi at the right-hand side. The naked girl performing the sprinkling ritual was not using a tumbler filled with water as usual, but a shot glass filled with salt.

Around 10 p.m. there were some customers, but not more than one per six or seven girls.

As I did not use the toilets I cannot confirm if a tip is due.

The waitresses seem to have discontinued their silly trick of bringing the change in one-baht coins sellotaped in 5-baht batches.

Hieneken (sic) draught 75 baht, bottled Heineken 130 baht.

  News from Ishi October 2012: Re-opened for high season

The bar is re-opened on 26th October with a party.

  News May 2012: Closed for low season

The bar has once again 'closed for renovation'. Presumably it is now set for a seasonal opening pattern and is only open during high season from December through April.

  News December 2011: Re-opened

Re-opened with a change to the stage design and a relocated water feature.

  News from Durian Doug and Brewster, November 2011: Work Starts

Workmen have now gutted the bar. The bar is due to reopen just before midnight on 1st December ready for opening party on 2nd December from 8pm.

  News from Durian Doug, July 2011: Renovations

Silver Star is now closed for 3 months for renovations. A few of the dancers and staff are now working in the sister bar in Soi 7.

There's no sign of any work there and the bar has been closed for many months. It is either closed for good or else will be used just when high season demand justifies it.

  Review from Durian Doug, June 2011: Show the Silver

As of May 15, Silver Star 1 A-GoGo on Soi 8, now has enough sexy naked girls to run hands-on shows in their Jacuzzi starting at 9pm.

They are also doing lesbian shows.

Well worth the visit.

  Review February 2011: Junior Partner

The original Silver Star has become the junior partner of the three Silver Star Bars. It is still in the same mould though, just scaled down a bit.

On my last visit there were about a dozen dancers on duty with half dancing at any one time. There were some reasonably attractive girls on show and they weren't wearing too many clothes.

The girls were making a good effort to connect with the customers, both on and off stage. They were unsurprisingly a bit more keen on seeking out holidaymakers rather than expats though (as distinguished by attitude to the ping pong balls being pushed by the service staff).

The small scale operation probably makes the bar a bit hit or miss, but the positive attitude makes it worth a look. The sister bar on the next soi is a more reliable bet. It is quite similar, but it has more girls and more momentum.

  Review April 2010: Glum

The Silver Stars in general have never really provided me with many worthwhile visits but I am not really sure exactly why.

The bar has quite a few dancers and several were attractive There is comfortable bench seating arranged around the wall overlooking the central stage and there is also a Jacuzzi. There is a reasonable draft beer at 65 Baht.

Perhaps the warning signs are that the bar packs too many girls on stage and they do a very long dance stint. Certainly didn't seem to make for many smiling girls. It is always more fun when the majority of the girls are out carousing for lady drinks and bar fines, they then get a little more animated to look after the customers.

It looks like the bar could be quite lively at times, just never when I've been there.

  Review March 2009: Odd Stacked Against Them

The bar has been around for a fair time and must be doing something right.

Perhaps the secret is having a fair team of above average girls. Probably the number one asset for any gogo.

From there it goes downhill a bit. There were 8 girls dancing in bikinis or topless on the central stage. At the end of a track they would all shuffle around one place so the dance stint must be 8 songs. A bit of a long wait if you are enjoying a girl's company.

Doesn't seem to be much of a problem to me though, as the girls ignore me, as they do most of the customers in the bar.

The bar is also into the silly tip seeking move of sellotaping small coins into 5 baht stacks. As a matter of principle I take the coins and later donate them to a more deserving cause.

  Review July 2008: Smiling

The bar is not on my favourites list and so it has been a while since the last visit.

I noticed that the shower cubicle had become a Jacuzzi. It is a far more attractive idea to be out in the open rather than hiding away behind closed shower doors.

The girls on stage were actually good at casting their eyes around the room and smiling at customers catching their gaze.

There were some attractive girls around, but once off stage they went in no hassle mode. They left the lonely customers to their vacant stare at the dancing girls.

There wasn't anything drastically wrong, its just that other bars a bit better (and a bit cheaper).

  Review March 2013: Beyond Expectations

I stopped by perhaps a little too early on a Sunday evening.

There were 6 girls on stage at the time. There were some very attractive girls in the team, way beyond expectations of a Soi 7/8 GoGo. The girls were also very revealingly costumed in a little skirt affair that covered nothing.

Far better than many GoGos, particularly those relying on overdressed agency coyotes.

Unfortunately there were not many dancers left over for customer interaction duties, so not really worthwhile hanging out too long. A helpful service girl suggested that more girls will arrive later on. But I am a bit of sceptic. If one tries later on, then there are still likely to be few girls. Equally helpful service staff will then claim that many girls have been barfined already!

But nevertheless an attractive proposition for a couple of beers.

  Review April 2011: Busy

Silver Star 2 is still the pick of the Soi 7/8 gogos.

The momentum of success ensures that the bar can employ a stage full of stage full of attractive dancers in various stages of undress. The dancers rotate one place per song and it can be quite a long wait.

There are plenty of girls on customer service duties and they can be quite hands on.

For those that appreciate a Jacuzzi show then there are usually a couple of girls cavorting and entertaining those in the ringside seats.

The bar always seems quite busy and most customers seem to have a good time.

On a slightly negative side, the bar sanctions stupidities such as toilet tips and change that is returned in piles of 1 baht coins sellotaped together.

But on the whole the GoGo is quite a success.

  Review October 2010: Surprising

The bar till surprises me that it is consistently popular and generally a fun place to go.

The reason it surprises me is that it has high drinks prices and a fairly hasslesome attitude to tips, being a Thai run place. (Not to such an extent that it is unduly troublesome).

I guess that if there was a decent farang bar in the vicinity, then it would do very well, but there isn't.

But as it stands, the momentum is with Silver Star 2. The girls follow the customers (and vice versa). So for the moment the bar can command a good line up of dancers. And really that is 9/10ths of the reason for the amount of customers.

Perhaps another good reason for the success is that air con bars are pretty thin on the ground on Soi 7 and every so often, beer bar crawlers may fancy an air con break.

But for whatever reason, Silver Star 2 remains a popular bar with a goodly amount of attractive dancers and a fun atmosphere.

  Review May 2010: Liveliest in the Area

The bar seems to do a very good trade and seems the most consistently busy gogo in the Soi7/8 locale.

A fair amount of dancers are on duty in the bar, plenty enough to make the main stage seem pretty crowded. There are usually a couple of teams of gogo dancers in bikinis or topless. Every so often there is a nominal show, which basically means more standard dancing but without the knickers.

There is also a Jacuzzi, home to a couple of naughty girls. There are stools around the Jacuzzi for a little audience participation, but usually the girls are performing for those seating in the bench seats around the walls.

The quantity of girls seems to generate a fun atmosphere which is appreciated by the customers.

The bar is Thai run and a little bit prone to rather ruthless tip extraction, but on my latest visit everyone was well behaved and I had a good time with an ex-Catz friend.

The lady drinks were a bit pricey at 130 Baht, but if supply and demand governs prices then the bar is probably more justified in top end prices than many others.

  Review July 2009: 2 Star

I think this bar has found some secret way of identifying newbies. They seem to instantly recognise me as a critic and give me the cold shoulder. But somehow they sense a newbie and send in all and sundry to pump the new customer for lady drinks etc.

The bar is generally quite lively with plenty of girls and more than a fair share of customers.

There are usually about 10 girls on the central stage generally topless or bikini clad. There are another dozen or so hostessing whilst waiting for their turn to dance. There is also a team keeping the Jacuzzi staffed with 2 girls at a time.

Every so often the main stage is cleared for 'a show' which is basically the best looking girls in the bar dancing naked.

Not really hitting many of the ideals that I look for in a gogo but it seems pretty popular all the same.

  Review Feb 2009: Bronze Star

The bar always seems quite lively with about half the girls dancing on stage or in the Jacuzzi.

The dress code for the dancers is bikini clad or topless depending on the wishes of the dancer. They seem to attract a few above average girls too.

There's also a traditionally naughty Jacuzzi show perhaps entertaining the customers set back against the wall rather than poolside.

Every seems fine but not a bar where I have been tempted to stay very long. I am not quite sure why, just never seem to get the luck of the draw. Perhaps they still remember the time when I refused to tip the toilet boy.

  Review from Dave, December 2014: Sweet coffee

I popped into Sugar Sugar at LK Metro on Saturday night,

It was very lively in there. Mostly Coyote Dancers but the costumes were very revealing, some topless girls, good music and atmosphere.

The best coffee I've had anywhere in Thailand.

  Review May 2012: A Bit Sweeter

I had heard that Sugar Sugar has introduced a little nudity, so I stopped by at the start of an evening crawl around the Soi LK Metro area.

I watched two shifts of dancing out of three (I think). Each shift included one very attractive girl and a couple more that would turn a fair few heads. There were 5 dancers on stage at a time.

The girls were all coyote except for one who was topless. It seems to challenge the Thai-Anxiety definition of a gogo as a bar where girls dance in bikinis or less. This is mostly a coyote bar but it has a token topless dancer. Still its enough to qualify as a GoGo for the moment, but a rethink of the definition is in order.

Apart from the topless dancer, the rest of the bar was otherwise traditional coyote. The dancers were keeping themselves to themselves in one corner. However the dancers did get motivated to mix with customers when a couple of younger guys came in.

Actually the bar was quite friendly, because although the dancers were standoffish, there were plenty of service girls or hostesses interacting with customers.

It was quite early in the evening and most customers seemed to be staying for just one drink. Maybe a bit of a warm up bar to start off an evening in the gogos.

Tahitian Queen on on Beach Rd has certainly risen from the ashes. Called in at 6pm on Wednesday and it was wall to wall people.

Tried to count the girls but I gave up when I reached 30.

1 pretty one attached herself to me but it was very short lived. Within seconds I got you buy me dink I did and and shot glass arrived, from service girls hand straight down her neck and empty glass back to service girl. A few seconds of hands on fun and it was we go room. When I declined the offer she was off like a shot looking for richer pickings.

All girls in bikinis.

  News, April 2010: Risen from the Ashes

TQ1 is currently undergoing extensive refurbishment to put right the recent fire damage. The grand re-opening on the 6th of May.

  Review, May 2009: Expensive

How on earth does this bar get away with selling near the most expensive draft beer in Pattaya. The 110 Baht is simply not value for the disappointing entertainment.

The girls were overdressed in bikinis and were not much more than shuffling to the 70's & 80's rock music.

And when not dancing they were doing their best to ignore me even when sitting close by.

Anyway don't listen to me, I am a little biased against non-sexy overpriced bars. Better to take advice from those that like that sort of thing, there were plenty in the bar that seemed to be enjoying it.

  Review, December 2008: Chatty

TQ 1 is a very popular bar, it always seems full.

And yet it has few attractions for this particular reviewer. The girls are overdressed in bikinis, there are large sections of seating with only an end on view of the long thin stage, and one tends to be either ignored or hassled by the girls.

The reason for the popularity is more cultural than due to the gogo aspects. The bar has become a meeting place for farangs who simply like a chat with fellow farangs. This seems to be particularly an American thing.

Anyway you can't argue with a popular bar. If you fancy a chat with your mates, then get down there.

  Review by Dmitri, March 2008: Still Smoky and Full

Still smoky and a full place. It is a shame such a small place gets packed with smokers leaving no air to breathe for others. I had a real headache just after one hour.

People stay in front of you waiting for you to leave to get a place, kind of stressful.

Lady drinks are now 110, not 100 as previously reported.

  Review June 2007: Too Smoky

This bar always seems to turn me into Mr Grumpy. The bar always seems full and often there is no chance of a comfy seat. On my last visit I found a suspiciously vacant seat only to find out why...the chain smokers at the next table.

The replacement location was a stool out of the way of anything much interesting. The girls dance in bikinis but most of the customers are enjoying a bit of banter with their mates and don't seem so interested in the girls anyway.

It is always a very popular bar, so perhaps one day I will get to see why.

  Review January 2012: Nearly Coyote

The bar has had a bit of a makeover since I last stopped by. The flooring has been redone, there is now decent bench seating and the toilets are the best in town.

It looks pretty good but really not so different to before. The bar missed a trick with the bench seating though, it is not located where the stage is. Bench seating is so important when it comes to a taking a few beers. As far as I am concerned stools are one drink and go sort of seats.

The bar was well filled with girls and there was a fair sprinkling of customers.

There were 4 dancers on stage and it was not an impressive show. The dancing was boring, and overdressed. It was lucky that one girl was wearing a bikini top or else I would have classed it as a coyote bar. The bar seems to have a fair amount of traditionally attired coyotes. Then there are the pretend gogo dancers who wear bikinis, but only over the top of solid bras. Then there are just a few real gogo dancers in bikinis. There's nothing less. There were a few decent looking dancers awaiting their turn but it was all too draggy to want to make an effort to stay and see.

There was a reasonable draft beer at 65 Baht and there are loads of service girls to make sure of prompt attention. There was a girl circulating the audience with ping pong balls but she was not pushy.

I guess most regulars go for the rock videos, and maybe a game of pool, rather than the dancers. Not a bar I'll rush back to until I hear that the girls have shed a few clothes. I rather fear I may be gone some time.

  Review January 2011: Still Popular

As always the bar was doing a good trade on a January weekday early evening.

There were about 6 girls dancing all in a lingerie bikini affair. There were about another half dozen or so waiting their turn to dance. There was one very attractive girl and there were a couple more who could get a job on Walking Street.

There were also countless hostesses dotted around the bar.

But somehow the GoGo aspect of the bar doesn't really seem to be the focus of attention  of the customers. I think it is something along the lines of TQ 1 or TQ 2 where it is primarily a meeting point for a community. Maybe Danish bikers. Just a guess after there seemed to be a certain amount of appreciation for a Danish rock act appearing on the playlist.

Anyway the girls didn't seem to be particularly interactive, so I enjoyed a beer's worth of Tom Petty and went off to seek a bar more focused on GoGo entertainment.

  Review July 2010: Victoria's Secret

As per normal the bar was reasonably full with customers. Always a bit of surprise to me but it seems pretty consistent.

Another minor surprise was that the dancing girls have a new uniform idea that I have rarely seen before. They were dressed in striking red underwear. Not your usual knickers and bikini top, but in knickers, corsets, bras, suspender belts, negligee, the works!.

Perhaps a little of an over exaggeration but way too much covering for my tastes, though I can image there may be many who would appreciate this variation. Me, I was wondering if it still qualified as a GoGo bar where I consider the maximum clothing allowed should be a bikini.

Anyway there were 6 or so girls dancing on the square central stage and plenty more dancers, sitting waiting their turn. And in terms of talent, there were a few that appealed, which is a better standard than that of yesteryear.

None of the prettier girls seemed on the lookout for customers to drink with though, so I didn't stay long. I spent the remainder of the time wondering why the place was so popular. In the end, the only thing I found worthy of particular praise was the collection of music videos. There were some real gems, of obscure but excellent rock.

  Review Dec 2009: Large Staff

Tim A-GoGo perpetually baffles me. It has been going a long time and employs an enormous cast of service girls, hostesses and dancers. Yet I never find any particular reason to stay beyond a single beer.

There are usually half a dozen dancers on stage who are always overdressed in bikinis. There aren't many that arouse much interest but there have been a few attractive girls milling round though on my last visits.

The seating is limited to uncomfortable stools and the best bet is to find one where the wall can be used as a back rest.

The girls don't seem very interested in customers unless someone is recognised as a newbie. Then they are sure to receive a fair bit of attention.

The only obvious attraction is an interesting selection of rock videos played on the large screen TVs.

But really I don't see how they attract enough custom to justify the large staff. Perhaps I'm missing something.

  Review May 2009: The Wrong Type of Nibbles

As I was shown to my seat, a couple of cuties were turfed out of my designated stool. I thought things were looking up, but they found some dark corner of the bar to hide in, and I never spotted them again.

The dancing girls were average, and were overdressed in bikinis. There were 5 on the stage at any one time. The music is well chosen with some very classic rock videos and some less well known bands, but still good tracks.

However live rock tracks can be very long and anyone waiting for 5 songs worth of dancing for their girl to return, would be waiting a long time. It doesn't really inspire much in the way of dancing either

There were plenty of girls waiting their turn to dance and these are supplemented by a fair few hostesses.

It seemed strange then, that the girl who tried her luck with me, tried the old trick of approaching one song before she was due to dance. Never works with me, I never buy a drink for at least the first track.

The girl's little trick introduces the low key hassle factor that's associated with the bar. The service staff do regular rounds of trying to sell extras, in particular, vodka shots, ping pong balls and nibbles (unfortunately of the potato chip variety). The hassle was pretty minor though, a simple 'mai ow krup' was sufficient to move them on to bother somebody else.

But it would take one of the cuties mentioned earlier to persuade me to stay for a second beer. Something that has yet to happen for me in this bar.

  Review Nov 2008: Still Doing Well

I was taken aback by a friendly welcome from the Thai managers and wasn't really expecting cordialities when entering a bar and I'm not sure I returned the greeting.

The bar boasts an enormous number of hostess and/or service girls. If they had a half as many, it would still be well staffed. Perhaps it gets very crowded sometimes.

The dancers were all bikini clad but their are now about half a dozen girls that are pretty enough to hold their own in Walking Street. Still a fair few oldies though.

The hostess service girls were friendly enough but I prefer it when the dancers do the hostessing.

Didn't spot any hassle to sell stuff such as munchies and raffle tickets, or indeed, ping pong balls. Perhaps they have sensibly eased off on the hard sell.

The music is still the same with well chosen, but often repeated, oldie farang rock videos.

  Review from Dick Farang, June 2014: Dark

World Wide on Beach Road between Soi 7 and Soi 8 indeed opens around 8 p.m. now.

The first hour, between 8 p.m. and 9 p.m., everything goes en mineur. It is very dark then, there are only 6 dancers on stage in opaque, mostly black bikinis and many girls are still dropping in.

Not the slightest nudity, apart from the girl performing the sprinkling ritual.

  Review from Dick Farang, June 2014: Later

World Wide on Beach Road between Soi 7 and Soi 8 seems to open later now, around 8 p.m.

After official shopping and banking duty at Central Festival I like to drink a cheap bottled Heineken in a hassle free chilled environment nearby, which makes World Wide with bottled beers at 85 baht an excellent choice.

World Wide seems to have an endless supply of bikini dancers (thank goodness no coyotes) in all shapes and sizes and varying from a 3 or a 4 to a 7 or an 8; I seldom see the same faces again.

Although some of the girls go topless and some not, this does not make a big difference as the bras are transparent anyway.

Beer prices are very democratic and there is very little pressure (except from an ugly tomboy waitress who is a real pain in the arse) to buy lady drinks.

All this makes me think their core business is still the old-fashioned barfining. Anyway I often see girls in plain clothes leave with punters.

Between the standard Pattaya shuffle stints with about 8 girls in similar bikinis/strings on stage at any time, there is from time to time a lousy naked lesbian style show.

They also have a pussy trick performer now with big bolt-ons and an unshaved beaver.

Each time she blows a whistle, smokes a couple of cigarettes, shoots some darts or draws a picture, she sparingly takes off her string, but keeps her top and her sandals.

No toilet tips.

Draught beer 50 baht all night, most bottled beers 85 baht also all night.

  News from Ishi, September 2012: Renovation

The bar closed for a short renovation at the end of September.

  July 2012: A Beer and Aircon Break

I stopped by at an early hour, as I always do, mostly because it is the only aircon bar open at the time.

Anyway I thought it polite to report on a couple of improvements since my last visit.

Firstly there were a few more attractive girls doing the slow perambulation across the GoGo stage. The prettier girls help the show too. No particularly original or exciting, but that's not so important if the girls are pretty.

Secondly the bar had restored its cheap (and decent draft) beer.

No improvement in the interactiveness of the girls though. Still a place where the majority of customers drink alone.

Still, the positives work fine for just a beer and aircon break.

  January 2012: Worlds Apart

World Wide is a featureless GoGo that seems to offer little, but keeps hanging in there.

On my latest visit there was a batch of 8 below average bikini clad dancers. However these were followed in slow procession by a reasonably attractive batch of topless dancers. I think the bar operates in waves so that the door staff can be on higher alert when the topless girls are on.

The only customer interaction is reserved for newbies, and then their interactive treatment is to get mobbed by a couple of dancers and a couple of service girls for good measure.

But really I have no expectations of either a visual treat nor a friendly reception so enjoying a relaxing bottle of 70 Baht bottled beer isn't really too bad. Maybe it helps keep the bar ticking over. But it may be another year before I bother dropping by again.

  Review December 2010: A Wider View

Sometime one simply has to take an alternative view about what makes a good bar.

The bar has an excellent location, being just one of the two GoGos directly on Beach Road.

It is also a good halfway point when doing a stroll from 2nd Road down Soi 8 and then back up Soi 7. Their aircon is certainly worth stopping off for.

The bar also opens a bit earlier than the other GoGos in the area so sometimes it is the only aircon available in the whole locality.

It has a reasonably priced draft beer that undercuts the other GoGos at the Beach Road end of the Soi7/8.

But...

If you are looking for a GoGo to hook up with girls, then this is the worst in the area. The girls are not the slightest bit friendly to anyone who looks like they may know the Pattaya ropes. And they descend on a newbie like a pack of hyenas.

  Review May 2010: Swarms of Girls

I think that the Beach Road location has resulted in quite a strange sort of GoGo.

If you are after a bit of sexy fun then the Silver Stars just round the corners in each direction are a much safer bet. Presumably because of good passing trade the bar seems to target newbies rather than regulars.

The bar has a traditional newbie show with a few boring pussy tricks and slightly more erotic strip shows with costumes such as the Hawaiian garlands.

The bar also has a fair number of girls allowing 8 girls to dance at a time on the central stage. They join in pairs, so end up dancing for a very sensible roster of 4 songs. There is usually quite a range of girls, but there are a few that will must attract a decent number of bar fines.

The bar seems to have a knack of recognising newbies, who get the swarm of girls treatment, all clamouring for lady drinks. The regulars get left to drink alone.

Perhaps strange for a bar that targets holiday makers, the drinks prices are very reasonable with bottled beer at 70 Baht (just gone up a touch). Possibly a legacy of the sister (beer) bars in the Soi 7/8 area doing such a good trade on the back of cheap drinks.

Although not a place I would recommend for sexy fun, it is a decent enough venue for a beer and aircon break on a beach stroll.

But for heavens sake don't get taken in by buying drinks for the swarm of girls. Keep your tips for girls that give you good service. You will end up with more respect and more fun.

Notes


Festivities bar fine. Many, if not, gogos charge higher barfines on what they consider special days. Every bar has a different definition of which days are special though. And some special days are even more special (expensive) than others.

The 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.

Nudity cannot be guaranteed and whenever the Pattay police are on the prowl the girls cover up. Closing times are sporadic depending upon local enforcement. 2am or 3am is now the norm.

Anyone with Middle Eastern or South Asian dark skin should be aware that they may receive a rather negative welcome. 90% of gogo bars have unspecified entry restrictions which can be hard to tie down as different people have had different receptions. Unwelcome faces will be told at the door that the bar is suddenly a members only club. Discriminatory maybe, but it is for real, it is based on experience, and it is supported by those who care about the welfare of the girls.

Just a couple of times people have had a bad experience in a bar which is perhaps the fault of an individual employee rather than bar policy. More often then not, the bar would be more than happy to deal with offsite problems even when it is not strictly their problem. To try and be fair to the bars, offsite complaints about employees can only be considered for inclusion if they have first been presented to the bar involved.
