  Review from Dick Farang, July 2014: Fisherman's Friends

Air Port Club has never been one of my favourites and will probably never become. I strongly doubt if they still open in the afternoon (except for curfew periods that is).

Air Port Club is still as noisy and cramped as ever before.

There were a number of overdressed hostesses and two or three bikini girls hanging around and the narrow front stage was full of coyotes. On the central jacuzzi were two or three below average naked girls at a time, begging for tips and waving a check-bin with some 100-baht notes in it.

On the mattress stage in the back were two or three naked fatties at a time, some of them unshaved. They welcomed several young two-week millionaires to their mattress, stripped them naked and faked a blow job.

No topless dancers.

The mamasan looked better than most of her staff. I did not see the stunners that are mentioned on some internet forums.

There was a lot of hassle from tequila girls and from overdressed girls scraping their throats. I offered them some Fisherman's Friend lozenges, but that was not what they wanted. When it became clear they were not going to get a lady drink, they tried to get 20-baht notes in their bras and pants. They reminded me of a song by ABBA: Money, Money, Money.

Thank goodness at Air Port Club expats are not bothered with ping-pong balls.

Bottled Heineken was still 135 baht.

  Review from Malcolm, January 2014: Airport Stand

Bit of a change here since my visit last year. The dancers on the front stage were not in their little stewardess outfits, just a mix of tops and shorts.

2 naked girls in shower but only one soaping up and spinning round the tiled podium, the other girl just standing there.

The rear stage/playmat had 4 naked girls just standing around. One had a piece of pipe lagging and hit a guy going to the toilet. Apart from that they just stood there.

Singha and San Migal both B135.

  Review August 2012: Double Teamed

I have rarely had a worthwhile visit to Airport in peak time. Mainly because the bar is too popular, and I tend to avoid the crowds.

On an unexpected afternoon visit, inspired by being caught in a downpour, the 'crowd' was limited to just 2 customers.

There were 8 ladies on duty, none of whom would likely make the grade for the night time shift. They were dancing 3 at a time in way too many clothes.

And for some reason, that I cynically put down to well schooled hassle, I was approached by a double team of girls. These were well experienced girls and there was absolutely no reason why they should need to hold hands with someone else.

Anyway the rain had cleared by the time I had finished my drink and I rapidly moved on.

Airport may score highly in the nighttime league, but its flounders in the relegation zone in the afternoon league.

  Review June 2010: Afternoon Flight

For a change I tried Air Port on its afternoon shift. Surely not a patch on the evening shift.

There were about a dozen girls in attendance of which 4 or 5 were dancing on the front podium stages. Nothing going on in the fun stages towards the back of the bar. The girls were mostly working just the afternoon shift and were a few notches older and wiser than the evening girls.

The dancing uniform was a bit naff with bras rather than bikini tops. A couple of dancers were topless so this is presumably down to the choice of the dancers.

There is a cheaper 55 Baht draft option in the afternoon but that is because the bar is more or less on par with the cheaper options in the afternoon.

I chatted to a girl who worked both shifts, which maybe was a mistake, as she seemed all geared up for lady drink demands as if it were a mega crowded, mega fun bar with lots of alternative options for her. Only it wasn't, as there were only about 5 or 6 customers.

It is probably better to stick with the more specialist daytime gogos. Less expectations on both sides makes them a more laid back option for afternoon drinking.

  Review from Malcolm, January 2010: 20 Baht notes

125 Baht for bottle of Singha but with the amount of naked flesh around, well worth it, and no hassle at all for lady drinks.

OK if you're near the Jacuzzi or bed/stage at the back you will get a tip pot rattled at you, keep a few 20 Baht notes in your wallet for these occasions.

  Review from Materialsman, Oct 2009: 10/10

I have read on Forums that Airport is too loud, too expensive, too small, but f**k me sideways, they are doing something right, and those stewardess uniforms are something else, I love the way they appear to have a sort of colour ranking with the uniforms, from the beautiful blue of the stunning Hello girls and some service girls, there are also white uniforms, red ones, and I even spotted one lady in a black suited get up, very, very sexy in my view, and I am known amongst my peers as an incorrigible pervert of the highest order, with a known predilection for schoolgirl uniforms, but this stewardess concept done Airport Club style blows that right out of the water, even the naked Jacuzzi girls maintain tiny parts of the uniform.

The Club was absolutely chockers, virtually standing room only, and I had to make my way back to the Jacuzzi areas before I could squeeze myself onto a stool. If you think being trodden on is a potential hazard in the Iron Club, then you wouldn't like Airport one bit! It was so compressed in there wedged between the wall and the first Jacuzzi, it was almost uncomfortable, but I didn't give a flying f**k, there were so many naked girls squeezing past me that I managed to cop a feel of more naked, tight ass in an hour than a Catholic Priest gets in a lifetime! I feel I have to mention one of the Jacuzzi girls, simply the largest pair of natural tits on a Thai girl I have seen in years.

The girls here last night were just simply awesome, the dancers, the show girls, the service girls, Hello girls and all, if you can just block out the awful, loud car alarm music played in there, it's the hottest joint in town, and I wouldn't hesitate to bring a newbie into here for his first taste of life Pattaya style, I think it would be enough to make him faint, even the Pope would have a ball here right now, I just wish I had more time to be a regular visitor here.

Another girl on the platform next to the Jacuzzi was rubbing her pussy up rigorously again a chrome pole, there were wet foam truncheons being smacked against naked flesh with reckless abandon, there were gorgeous, skimpy uniform clad girls gyrating on stage, total bacchanalia, if I die, please place my ashes in an urn on the window shelf right here opposite the Jacuzzi's, so I can enjoy the deliciously decadent, debauched scene for all eternity. There is really no other option available to me than to give this place a 10/10 based on last night.

  Review from Keith, November 2014: Great time

AlcatraZ has had a bit of re-launch recently and the effort seems to be paying off. Keith writes:

I was there couple nights ago and had a great time. Arrived at 10pm to find the place 'rocking' with some great tunes. I got seated after a little walk round as pretty full with customers with gyrating hotties on their laps, yes!

Lighting was dynamic, tunes great, volume not too loud, I counted 3 sets of girls about 15 girls per set, plus 10 quite cute door girls. That is at least 55, plus what ever were out on 'Bail'.

The bail sign read 800Baht so maybe some price reductions there.

Visited about a year ago and found this time greatly improved atmosphere also they have made some new seating which allows you to sit right next to the stage and some new counter type seating with great views .

Staff were all very friendly and made me and my friends trip to Pattaya, well worth it at least worth taking a look.

  Review from Dick Farang, August 2014: Jail Undercrowding

AlcatraZ on Walking Street looked very empty with only eight or nine dancers on the central stage and all other stages unmanned or better unwomanned. All were clad in black, some in bikinis, some in coyote outfits, some in skirts and some even in full hostess dresses.

The only nudity I saw was one ugly bosom, but I did see a lot of overweight dancers.

Not many customers.

Some coyotes and some waitresses were pushy for lady drinks.

I noticed a sign BAIL FROM 900 ß, referring to the barfines I guess.

The toilets were stinking of the toilet boy's cigarette smoke.

The waitresses were not too friendly with the exception of Tik (number300), perhaps the shortest waitress in Pattaya, who used to work at Kiss on Soi LK Metro and at Far East Rock on Soi Post Office.

Chang draught 79 baht, bottled Heineken 145 baht.

  News January 2014: Buy 2 get 1 free...BUT...

There's a promotion of 3 for the price of 2 on draft beer but this is very unlikely to be worth having. One person has to order 2 draft beers together and then gets three together. A bit impractical for the many who like their beer cold.

  News August 2012: Looking Up?

The bar is making a few changes. First of all the 2000 Baht agency models have been given the push and barfines are now in the 600-800 Baht range.

Secondly the bar is emphasising its shows. The welcome staff now have boards advertising the next shows in 10 minutes or whatever. The bar is adopting the acrobatic pole show as introduced by Iron Club (and also seen in sister bar Queen Club on Soi LK Metro).

It does seem a wise move as there are many more passers by these days more into shows than barfines. Also one has to notice that the existing show bars of Angelwitch and What's Up are the bars that can get away with the highest drinks prices.

  Review December 2010: Perfect.. for a Hollywood prison musical

The bar would make a great looking set for a lavish Hollywood prison musical. There are multiple level cages, balconies and cell blocks. Perfect for teams of chorus girls to high kick in unison.

As to entertaining customers, seeking out sexy fun or takeaway pleasures, then the theme doesn't work nearly so well. Perhaps the bar designers had another demographic in mind, perhaps it is intended as a cabaret for East European/Asian couples or perhaps as a swanky nightclub for the Bangkok rich.

Anyway for the moment it is operating as a GoGo/Coyote bar so that is the way that it will be reviewed.

The central stage featured 9 dancers of which 3 were attractive topless inmates and the other 6 were a mixture of fully dressed coyotes, half with light dresses maybe in a prison theme, the other half as warders.

There was one lone girl dancing on the already deserted upper levels, but being too far away, this just adds to the overall effect rather than adding any real extra entertainment.

There's loads of lighting to give the bar to overall good effect, but not enough of it is aimed at the stage. The bar is large so the stage can be a bit far way, especially at the back of the bar. So being dimly lit as well does not help much.

The hostesses are uniformed as warders. Which again looks interesting, but may not be the right psychology. Surely most customers have come to Thailand to seek out the more submissive types. A theory backed up  by the popularity of air hostess, nurse and schoolgirl themes. I'd guess not many guys have much of a fetish for dominant ladies.

But the hostesses were doing a good job of roaming the room in search of guys who may like a little company. So a few plus points there.

The drinks prices are top end at around 135 Baht for most drinks (including lady drinks), but with a small draft beer and soft drinks at 100 Baht. I guess the bar connections are hoping that the new Carlsberg draft will have some sort of premium as 'something new', but being as it is the cheapo house lager in many British pubs, then the premium concept falls somewhat flat for me.

Perhaps the prices may fit with some top end swanky idea of where the bar wants to go, but in terms of the basic but remote gogo/coyote dancing on offer at the moment, this must count as the poorest value in town. But of course there are always many in town to whom this is not an important factor. What's up for instance does very well with prices higher than Alcatraz.

It was amusing to see that the usual barfine notices on the walls are replaced here by 600 Baht 'Bail' signs. Actually the price seems more reasonable than previously reported suggesting a bit of downward pressures on prices.

At the moment the bar seems to be doing reasonably well for customers with plenty stopping by its excellent location to take a look. One has to suspect that once the novelty wears off, then the bar will have to dream up something special to justify the high end pricing. The nature of the prison themed decoration of the bar would look very bleak and barren if it scales down to half the amount of customers/dancers. (A bit like the old concrete cavern of Taboo in Covent Garden).

Anyway the bar seemed fine for a beer or two with some pretty dancers and hostesses interacting. But really there are many better bars for girl watching, high energy atmosphere or hands on fun, all with much cheaper drink options.

  Review from Pattaya forums, Dec 2010: Stay Out of Jail

It seems that Alcatraz A-GoGo has opened to disastrous opening comments on the Pattaya forums.

The drinks prices are clearly a sore point with an across the board pricing of 135 Baht, including the draft beer (in small glasses). The draft beer is Carlsberg, which has novelty value in Thailand, but back in my corner of Farangland, it is just the cheap house draft. Certainly not a premium beer.

But having bought a high priced drink, or an extortionate Carlsberg, then surely one could expect to sit back and enjoy some top notch entertainment.

But I'm afraid not, the dancing girls are over dressed, and are simply not of the required standard to justify the premium pricing.

There are girls dancing upstairs, but these are too far away, and too poorly lit, to add anything to the entertainment.

The hostesses are dressed as jail warders. Perhaps good for the theme, but not found very sexy by commentators so far. The wait staff are scouts and the dancers have a zebra print prison uniform.

Not really much on offer for Farangs. Perhaps the bar has other ideas, and is targetting Asian/Russian tourists or something.

  Review June 2012: On the Unextremities of Pattaya

I stopped by at around midnight on a weekday.

As I entered a show was in progress. It was a nicely put together choreographed show which was entertaining enough. It had a little bit of striptease feel about it though, with several acts featuring just fleeting nudity at the last minute.

After the show, the dancers slid down the poles for a GoGo spot. It was good to see that topless was more or less mandatory. Actually a few of the dancers that were mingling with customers after dancing maintained their topless attire. The stage was packed with girls and it made for a good intermission spectacle.

I have heard a lot about hassle from the service staff to drink quickly, but none of this occurred during my visit. The service girls were properly attentive but were perfectly relaxed and friendly.

The bar was about a third full and emptied out at the end of show sets but then gradually filled up in anticipation of the next set.

A perfectly pleasant visit and an excellent place to go when in the company of someone who doesn't need to know about the extremes of Pattaya nightlife.

  Review from Rick of pattaya-discover.com, March 2010: Big Fan

I have to confess to being a big fan of AngelWitch. It's formula is different from other bars and clubs in town. There is, or at least a while back there was a high standard of performance, choreographed scenes in beautiful costumes that were as creative and artistic as they were erotic.

Those standards seem to have slipped a little in the last year. It's still a great venue, one of the few venues in town where you can take a date and she's going to enjoy the show.

My last visit a month ago left me disappointed, with it's reliance on formula bawdy sketches that you could imagine seeing in any part of town, or even participate in at some of the raunchier clubs in town like Windmill and Babydolls. My date was bored. She sat through the sketches unimpressed and spent half the time checking her watch.

On my visit this week, the show seems to have been revitalised somewhat. We have some new comedy scenes, Tina Turner impersonations, acts with a live Python, and of course the statuesque Oi is on stage in many of the scenes, to impress us with her sensuality. Unfortunately, the lady with the acrobatic talents, who could swing between the steel poles with the skill of a trapeze artist, appears to be missing. Still lots of entertainment, and a show well worth watching.

My date this night loved the show, she smiled and laughed throughout the comedy acts and appreciated the beauty of the costumes and the talents of the show girls and actors. She watched in awe as the girls descended from the overhead gantry, sliding down the chrome poles.

We decided to stay for the next show and watched as the go-go girls descended onto the stage. The go-go dancers at AngelWitch are amongst the hottest on Walking Street.

Great entertainment, well worth a visit.

Beers are Bt 150, soft drinks Bt 125.

  Reader review Dec 2009: Hassle all the time

There are many girls and a show, but drinks are quite expensive (juice or soft drink 150 Baht).

The worst of all is the staff, who hassle all the time asking you to order more drinks. It's not a place I would recommend.

Bar fine 800. Lady 2000 one hour. If you want the lady all the night, get ready to pay 3000 up. There are many places much better than these one.

  Review from Pattaya-Addicts, November 2009: Hassle

Although the shows are noted as high quality the bar is currently taking a persistent knock on the Pattaya forums for hassle.

Complaints include a minimum drinking speed for customers and continuous drinks hassle from the staff.

Drinks are expensive and the girls quote short and long term rates to match.

  Review from BiLLYiSaKiD, May 2009: Homecoming

I first discovered Angelwitch in April of 2008 with a couple US Marine buddies. Even with the high prices we were addicted from the start! We even saw a lot of couples there…

We ended up there every night and I went home with the same hot lil’ cutie every time. And I thought I was a true butterfly! Not with this one. Mamasan always made her wait for me… Now that’s service!

…When I managed to make it back to Pattaya in August, my little darling was no longer working there but mamasan was and she made damn sure that I had my pick of any girl on stage. She even offered to call my original girl back just for me. I declined of course and took full advantage of mama’s kind offer and walked out with a different girl every couple of nights. With mama as a friend and as long as I took care of the girls, no hard feelings. Not even so much as a dirty look… Admittedly that freedom to butterfly was paid for in smiles, tips and ping pong balls!

Because my first drink was always with the head mamasan or the staff my friends and I were always well taken care of… I’ll always make a point to drop in to Angelwitch for a little “Home Coming” whenever I’m in Pattaya.

Strong Points:

  • Very Friendly Staff
  • Clean!
  • Best Sexy Shows…
  • Best Dressed/Almost Dressed Dancers
  • Date Friendly

Weak Points:

  • Expensive
  • Not the prettiest or best dancers

  Review from Pattaya Talk, April 2009: Great Shows

Still providing great choreographed shows although short on customer/girl interaction and lacking much in the way of eroticism.

A good place to take a girl if you’ve already barfined and you can stomach the sky-high drink prices.

  Review Nov 2008: Popular

I'm no longer a regular visitor to the bar due to the very expensive drinks.

The shows are worth the money for those that like choreographed shows. In fact the shows are about the best in town.  I also find it a very good place to go with visitors who may not like the mongering bars that I prefer.

However most of the time I am in participation mode rather than watching mode, so paying extra for shows doesn't appeal.

But there are an awful lot of visitors in town who prefer watching over participating, so the bar does deservedly very well indeed.

  Review from Dave, November 2014: Worth a Visit

I popped into BabyDolls on Saturday night, it was very busy,

There were some attractive, if plump, girls on show, much better than on previous visits.

There were all the usual hands on activities going on.

Worth a visit at the moment.

  Review December 2013: Proactive

Manager Phil has now moved on to Secrets Bar in the next Soi. The current managers are Larry, previously of Secrets, and Paul, previously of Far East Rock and Paradise.

What I find great about Babydolls is that the girls proactively seek out customers who enjoy a friendly girl sitting on their lap. There's no hiding away in the back corner for a chat with their fellow dancers in this bar. Of course many customers prefer to sit alone, without being approached until they select a girl for themselves. But that's not really the way Baby Dolls works and there are plenty of other GoGos such customers can choose instead.

The model works for Babydolls and there's always a good crowd in, and of course the large majority of the customers will also be buying lady drinks and tipping.

I often wonder why so few bars try the business model, but I guess it takes a lot of management effort to keep the girls out circulating amongst the customers. It probably only takes an occasional drop in effort before all the girls are congregating at the back of the bar again.

On my last visit I found the bar a little bit crowded as we head towards high season, and at first I thought that there weren't enough dancers to go round. But not to worry,a very friendly service girl popped onto my lap instead.

A consistently goo bar that is just the way that Thai-Anxiety likes it.

  News from Babydolls, August 2012: Egg Head

Babydolls Appoints a New Manager

Phil ( former Manager at X-Zone ) aka Mr. Egg has taken over the reigns as Manager at Babydolls from August 2012, and vows to keep the bars winning formula unchanged.

  News July 2012: Too few or too many but always spot on

Babydolls is more or less spot on as the almost prefect hands on bar.

When I last wrote in January, the only downside to the bar was that it was a bit too popular, and sometimes there weren't enough girls in the bar to tend to all the customers.

So as a contrast I thought it was the time for comments from the low season.

And the bar is pretty much perfect as usual. The only minor downside in low season is that there are too many girls available. As a regular, I have built up a fair few 'friends'. And now its quiet, they all seem to be available and keen to offer their services. So each new session starts with having to turn down a few of the volunteers.

But thereafter all is good.

The beer prices have dropped a bit too.

  News July 2012: Prices

The price for Tiger Draft is set to reduce to 60 Baht from Monday 9th July.

  Review January 2012: Lap Dancing

Babydolls is still going strong with its ever successful formula of being hands on and friendly.

The only time the bar disappoints is when it is full, which is quite often in high season. Detracting nothing from the bar, it is one of the worst places to be when it is busy and you haven't got a girl on your lap. After all, who wants to sit in a bar watching everyone else have great fun.

But when you have got a girl on your lap then it is surely a great place to be.

The bar features about 8 girls on a central stage in various stages of undress. There are also 2 naughty show points with 2 girls at each. Although these are almost legendary in naughtiness, they are not the most popular seats in the bar. Perhaps too much of a continuous expectation of tips.

The bar is quite similar to the somewhat smaller Windmill Club, but has one advantage over the competition. When there are sufficient girls, Babydolls splits them into 3 teams of dancers that swap every 4 songs or so. So the girls can spend 2/3rds of their time on their customers laps. When there are less girls then they are split into 2 teams (as per Windmill) and they stay on your lap half of the time. The short dancers rosters of just 4 songs is well appreciated.

Drinks prices are very reasonable and the service is good (unless the waitresses have been cornered on someone's lap for a while).

  Review February 2011: Top Ten

There are two basic schools of thought about what makes a good GoGo. The first is that GoGos should feature the best looking girls in town. The second is that bars should feature interaction, interaction and more interaction.

Baby Dolls is surely the top rated of the latter school. But it also so good at providing friendly girls and staff, that it also makes its mark on those seeking more elite girls than perhaps are on offer. This double success seems to get the bar rated in most people's top ten.

I sometimes wonder why a few more gogos don't adopt the simple but effective policy of offering a friendly drinking partner to more or less everybody who takes a seat in the bar. After all that is what most (but not all) customers go into GoGos for.

  Review from Dave, August 2014: Taking the Mick

mick mcmanusI popped into Baccara on Friday night, it was packed to the rafters.

As usual, there were some very attractive slim Bikini dancers.

When the showgirls came on there were about 6 new girls, some with extremely large breasts. Most of the showgirls look as if they could go 3 rounds with Mick McManus.

  Review from Nikko, August 2014: No longer top notch girls

The good old time when the Baccara was the best A-GoGo on Walking Street has long gone.

Now it is one of the most boring places. Not enough girls to fill the top floor, so that all of them end up at the bottom stage.

One set of girls with white sport shoes, one set of girls with high heels, only 2 girls topless from the 40-50 girls total.

Staying at the beach looking at sexy Russians tanning on the beach is way more exciting. Who cares about going in an A-GoGo to see girls dressed more than people on the beach, or in the streets?

Are they scared about the police? 80% of the girls where having a bra plus a top. You can barely see their fat tummy.

Attitude is the worst, no girl is looking at you, most of them had surgery so I suppose that they make good money here, doing nothing and being ugly.

Had only a few customers, mostly Chinese or Japanese.

  Review January 2014: Top Notch Girls

I stopped by at a prime time on a week day evening. I was giving a guided tour of Pattaya's best to a one time visitor. This was the example of a high end GoGo with top notch girls.

And indeed there was a fine selection of dancers doing the traditional very long dance roster. The girls were wearing a variety of dress codes with a decent amount of nudity amongst them.

The bar wasn't packed but there were an awful lot of guys for the amount of girls on hostess duty. This somehow made the girls seem a little unavailable, as one would have to make quite an effort to stand out from the crowd.

Despite having an excellent selection of girls, we were soon on our way to those bars where the girls are a bit more in your face on the interaction front.

  News from eyebee on Pattaya-Addicts, September 2011: 50-50

For a couple of weeks now, in Baccara (upstairs), they have had the stupid rule that the girls must dance with their tops on for 30 minutes, then can take them off for 30 minutes.

It changes on the hour and half-hour. Whoever thought this up must take first prize for stupidity! I was in there last night (during the topless half hour), and the place was packed. Many Japanese and farangs all having a good time. Then at exactly half past the hour all the girls put their tops on. You have never seen a place empty so quickly!

  Review October 2010: Happier than Happy

Baccara now seems to be the dominant bar of the Happy group, and seems able to command the lion's share of very good looking girls.

The layout downstairs is very much a traditional bar for watching dancers, rather than for interaction, but the upstairs affords a bit more privacy for those that like a bit of interactivity with the girls.

In fact this upstairs ice breaker has perhaps changed attitudes more generally than an upstairs-downstairs thing, and there are plenty of girls to be seen sitting on laps downstairs too.

The bar still uses a very long dance roster with many girls on stage, just rotating around one place per song.

The bar is very popular with Japanese customers suggesting that the girls' rates will surely be on the high side. But there are plenty of farangs too, so it is in no sense exclusive.

But of course there is a cheap draft beer. Other drinks prices are not so cheap, but not out of order either.

I have a feeling that the Happy A-GoGo placard proclaiming something along the lines of: 'Yes we are no 1' should perhaps be amended to direct customers across the street to Baccara.

  Review by Rick of www.pattaya-discover.com, April 2010: Upstairs Downstairs

Baccara is one of the most impressive clubs in town. The owners also run Baccara in Bangkok, and they've a created a unique concept that has the potential to be a great go-go bar. It seems to have almost everything a go-go club needs to be successful. There are two floors, effectively two clubs in one, as each floor has a different ambiance.

The downstairs area has a large central stage, but no shower, Jacuzzi or play area. There's about 20 girls dancing in rotation. The stage is big enough for a dozen girls or more, but there's usually eight go-go dancers on stage, dressed in bikinis and fish net stockings, and high heels. Some nights the bikini and stockings are white, other nights the outfit is black. Pretty standard stuff. The girls are attractive enough and reasonably friendly. There's great service, good music that doesn't make conversation impossible, and reasonable drinks prices.

The upstairs area has a sunken dance stage with a glass floor and fireman's pole for rapid descent to the lower floor. If you're in the right position on either floor, you can see the dancers on both floors.

The girls outfit on the upper floor is different, a short skirt and bikini top made of a see-through material, and ankle length basketball style shoes and socks. Quite different from the ground floor girls' outfits, and it's obviously designed for more fun and action. The girls generally remove their bikini top, and don't wear panties. When the opportunity arises, they create their own fun and games, swinging on the chrome poles, and engaging in all kinds of simulated sex acts.

Add to this some loosely choreographed shows later in the evening, basically different costumes, and some new moves and you have the recipe for a great evenings entertainment.

Since the opening in December there have been a few changes to the upstairs layout, with the addition of two small dancing stages, but they are not well positioned and get little attention from customers.

The initial impression when you walk into the club, is a formal atmosphere, a large central dance floor, male serving staff, and no play area. This cool, somewhat inhibiting atmosphere has an impact on the girls behaviour. They don't spend much time making eye contact, they seem totally engaged in watching their own image in the wall mirrors, and chatting with their friends on stage. Great eye candy, but not a lot of fun if you are looking for interaction.

I had more success making eye-contact with the girls on the floor above, while sitting in the downstairs section, as they flirted with me through the glass floor, lifting their microscopic skirts to reveal no panties and great contours.

The girls in the downstairs bar at Baccara are good looking but not exceptional as I would have expected. The successful clubs attract hot girls, but that doesn't seem to be happening at Baccara. Perhaps the girls understand the reasons why, better than the owners. The girls are friendly enough, once you make the connection, but the initial impression is that connection seems harder to make here than at many of the other Pattaya go-go bars.

The upstairs girls are a lot more interested in interaction with customers. Their outfit suggests fun from the moment you see them. A lack of wall mirrors shifts their focus to customers, and the sunken dance floor means the dancers are at eye level with those sitting in the armchairs around the central stage. The upstairs bar also has about 20 dancers, with 8 girls rotating on stage. There seems to be a high turnover, with new faces there every time I visit the bar.

As part of the fun atmosphere on the upper floor, customers throw Bt 20 notes or the more expensive ping pong balls, (for which the girls get Bt 20 a piece). The girls shriek and squeal as they race around the floor trying to catch flying notes.

With all the skill, experience, and ingenuity, not to mention expense, that went into creating Baccara, it should be the one of the best clubs in town, ranking alongside all the other great go-go clubs in Pattaya, like Airport, Peppermint, What's Up, SuperGirl, Happy and Windmill. It's certainly a great club, but it lacks the magic that you feel from the moment you walk into Airport, the energy that you feel at Peppermint, the almost endless stream of cute girls that Happy has, and a soul that permeates Windmill, ensuring every visit is a fun occasion.

While the service levels are very efficient, the male serving staff put a damper on activities. When there's no service girls, there's no opportunity to interact with them like at Windmill, or New Living Dolls, where it seems a part of the evenings entertainment.

A combination of men serving staff, a large central stage and girls who are more interested in their own reflection, than making eye contact, creates a formal almost hands-off, unfriendly feeling.

These criticisms may seem harsh, but at the end of the day, most go-go girls in Pattaya would like to interact with you in the style of Airport or Windmill, if only the infrastructure and the operational management allowed it.

I've had several impromptu interactions with girls at Baccara, that suggest they are willing but may be a little inhibited with the formality of the place.

On one evening, I was climbing up the spiral staircase, to the upper floor. I stopped to allow two of the girls to pass me. They were in no hurry to reach the lower floor and blocked my passage with their bodies, pinning me against the rail and smothering me all kinds of affectionate embraces. An unexpected encounter that brought a big smile to my face!

Baccara is definitely worth a visit. While it's clear that the owners are not trying to emulate the raunchy environment at clubs like BabyDolls and Windmill, they have a more formal, up market style in mind. The result is they have created an ambiance, at least in the downstairs area, that's somewhat chilly and unfriendly. Most customers don't make it, to the upstairs bar. So they miss out on the fun part of Baccara.

Time will tell how successful their concept will be.

  Review from Dave, August 2014: Regret

I popped into Beach club one night last week, it was a spur of the moment decision, which I later regretted.

The Coyote Dancers were on when I sat down, which were quickly replaced by the Bikini dancers and a few topless dancers. I have to say the standard of girl was very poor. Most of the girls were well over 30.

I had one very boring beer, I won't be going back there in a hurry.

  News from Ishi, July 2013: Cheap drinks end

Presumably the new Beach Club has come up to speed and it is no longer in need of a boost from cheap drinks.

Drinks prices have now reverted to the same prices as the rest of the group. 65 Baht for draft beer, 135 for bottled beer and lady drinks at 130 Baht.

  News from Ishi, June 2013: Re-opened after rework

The bar has now re-opened after rework and now features the central stage from the group's old Cavern A-GoGo. There are 3 small sub-stages featuring coyote dancers.

The cheap drinks are continuing but the barfine has reverted to the standard group price of 700 Baht.

  News from Ishi, June 2013: Closed for rework

The bar is closed with substantial rework underway. The bar will soon reappear with a new central stage. The bar will re-open on 25th June 2013. The dancers have relocated to Happy whilst renovations are under way.

  News April 2013: Substantial Price Reduction

The Beach Club has introduced a substantial price reduction. All basic drinks are now 95 Baht with draft beer being reduced to 59 Baht.

Lady drinks are now the lowest in Walking Street at 95 Baht and barfines are just 500 Baht.

It is not that the bar has been forced to take action as it is always reasonably popular. Perhaps it is more to do with identifying the opportunity to corner an upcoming market in those caught up by western economies doing their best to suffocate their economies to death.

Perhaps it is taking inspiration from the enormously popular Wetherspoons pubs in the UK that have established themselves as a major pub chain on the back of discount prices.

  Review March 2012: Off Piste

Perhaps a little contrary to the norm, I find Beach Club to be the most enjoyable of the Happy Group of bars. Being a little off the top tier seems to soften the more mercenary expectations of the more elite bars. But the standard of girls is still very high.

The girls do a long stint of dancing rotating around the tables. However the girls dancing roster is truncated to just 3 songs whenever a lady drink is forthcoming. The girls dance mostly topless. The dancing cycle is sporadically interrupted by a show, which is pretty similar to normal dancing except a few less clothes.

The drinks prices are very reasonable, especially for a high end bar. There is a male service staff, which takes away the option of reserve hostesses, but is at least friendly, polite and efficient.

The bar has been a little inconsistent in my last few visits in terms of number of customers and girls. It has been crowded, empty, full of girls, and depleted of girls, in pretty equal measures over my last few visits.

Always worth a look, and often makes for an enjoyable visit.

  Review January 2011: Improving in Decline

I had a very enjoyable visit at a peak time on a January evening.

And one has to notice that the customer count must have been somewhat disappointing for the connections. There was a fair bit of ebbing and flowing but the ebbs were very sparse. However this situation was not the slightest bit disappointing for customers. The girls were a bit more keen than usual to get interactive and there were plenty of them available.

There is a much wider range of girls now that a couple of years back when the bar could command a little more exclusivity. But there were still a fair few very attractive girls. In fact I think this more pragmatic approach to recruitment may have helped the bar. One girl in particular, that made my visit a treat, had learned her trade in a far more generally friendly bar than Beach Club has ever been.

Actually having set yourself up with some good company the bar is generally very customer friendly. There is cheap beer and the lady drinks are great value at 105 Baht. There were no pestering mamasangs and the service was polite and efficient.

And even better, the bar has an excellent rostering policy for girls entertained by customers. The basic dance roster is ludicrously long for girls without customers, but if the lady drinks are forthcoming then on her next turn to dance, her roster is reduced to just 3 songs. And if the drinks keep flowing, on her next turn she dances just one song.

Somehow the decline in exclusivity seems to have brought the bar down to a far more customer friendly proposition than before.

  Review June 2010: No Hassle

The bar has been a successful part of Pattaya nightlife for as long as I can remember. In town of spirals, Beach Club gets top notch girls, the customers follow and hence the bar can recruit the top girls.

The bar features table dancing, mostly at tables with a bay of comfortable bench seating. There is also a slightly larger table doubling up as a centre stage.

The girls do a very long and slow rotation around the tables. Not really a bar where this is a big issue as most customers seem to be content to watch the dancers, no doubt in anticipation of a takeaway selection. There are also hostesses in evening gowns.

The bar is a no hassle bar in that girls generally only approach if signaled to do so.

There's a cheap draft beer and prices are reasonable for a popular bar. In common with the other bars of the Happy group, the wait staff is mostly male.

  Review from materialsman, October 2009: A solid 9/10

I really like the Beach Club, although I seldom look at the dancing girls displaying their freshly shaven havens, not because I am shy or favour the bushy bush look, I actually do prefer a bald or trimmed pussy, it's just that I think this place has some of the most beautiful hostesses in town so my gaze is always diverted to them, plus you can actually sit quite comfortably on the sofas and enjoy the beer without being hassled if that's what you prefer.

There was some pretty fine looking girls dancing in actual fact, and although the Bar was fairly busy, it doesn't seem to be popular amongst the locals doing their nightly crawls, no problem with that, all the better for me, a solid 9/10 in my humble opinion!

  News from Ishi January 2012: Showered Out

The Jacuzzi features have been removed and replaced by table dancing stages.

  News December 2011: Waiting for High Season

Casnovy has occasionally flattered and has been up there with the most popular bars on Walking Street. It seems to have dropped off the radar a bit in recent times, but it is still a loud and lively venue that may better suit partying visitors, rather than seasoned expats.

My last visit was pretty much as normal, with a fair amount of attractive dancers amongst the three rows of dancers. Two of which are made up of table dancing positions and the middle row is the centre stage where the girls seem a little less inhibited about clothes.

The dancers are a pretty mixed bunch in terms of being friendly, some were hiding away just awaiting their white knight, whilst others were playing the crowds.

I was looked after by a very friendly service girl on my last visit. She was playing some strange game of keeping one foot on the floor and never quite sitting down. Something to do with house rules that service girls aren't allowed to sit with customers. She did a good job of sitting with this customer, even though it wasn't quite legally sitting.

On the whole the bar made for a decent visit. But I think it is rather waiting for the high season crowds  so as to realise the true spirit of the bar.

  News August 2010: Small Beer

Casnovy have replaced their large draft beer glasses with small glasses, still the same price.

  News from Ishi Aug 2010: Water Works

They've made 2 small bath-tubs (1 meter square, no head shower) on the left hand of the entrance. There are sofa-seats around the bath-tub.

  Review July 2010: Shown the Door

I'm not out much these days due to shitty business and no money and, apparently, I'm not the only ones. I did go for 2 of the big beers at Casnovy last night and noticed there were no shows being offered.

Chatted with one of the longtime mamasans and said all the showgirls had been shown the door. No more shows at Casnovy. The owner decided that the showgirl salaries were just too expensive given the shit economy.

They've been supplanted by 2 rotations of nude girls who, when not dancing, sit with customers, smile on stage, have a good attitude and only a notch below the showgirls on the looks scale. As opposed to showgirls, who look down their own noses on stage then go sit in the back afterward.

I, for one, would hugely applaud more bars – particularly farang-owned ones – following suit, knocking the showgirls they elevated to such lofty perches, down a couple pegs. Dancers? You can stay. Showgirls? You're fired.

Loved it!

  Review February 2010: Consistent

The bar was one of the market leaders in setting up a loud and lively environment inside and a large team of very attractive welcome girls outside. The same spirit is now most popularly exploited by Airport and Iron Club but Casnovy is still pretty good.

The bar employs way too many dancers, hostesses and wait staff for the amount of customers but it gives the bar an illusion of being continually busy, even when it's not.

The bar usually has about a dozen dancers on the go spread across the 3 rows of stages. The less inhibited girls generally stay on the centre stage. The dancing is punctuated by naked shows that are not really so different from the standard dancing.

I've usually found some good, attractive and friendly company from amongst the dancers but it is not really a 100% guaranteed deal.

The draft beer is cheap and served in bigger glasses than most bars.

Usually this all adds up to a good time.

  Review June 2009: With a Little Help from my Friends

I had read a couple of forum postings that Casnovy had declined a little. The bar still seemed to be doing fine to me but saying that the dancers that I know there were nowhere to be seen.

But all was not lost, I know service girls there too, and I was soon set up with an attractive replacement. She proved good company and so I had a good session.

The bar has plenty of girls both dancing and on hostess duty. Chatting to my service friend it seems that service staff aren't allowed to sit with customers. I thought this was a bit strange as there well enough servers to cover for a couple staff taking time out to sit with the customers.

Beer prices are reasonable and the music wasn't quite so loud as during previous visits.

So still on my list of gogos well worth a visit.

  Review Jan 2009: Upward Path

The mix of very loud music, a massive staff and reasonable drinks prices put Casnovy on the top tier, especially over the busy season. The bar seems very lively at the moment.

Maybe they have so many staff and girls that it would still seem lively with no customers.

The pattern is table dancing on the 2 side rows of tables and dancers alternating with naked showgirls on the central stage.

Perhaps the music volume is set a bit high for a long visit but it is an integral part of the bars atmosphere, so it is surely here to stay. I did meet one girl who left the bar as it made her ears ache though.

I've sometimes thought that the showgirls are a little fussy about sitting with customers but after getting to know them I get well looked after now.

And you still get the cheeriest good bye in all of Pattaya's bars.

 News from Ishi, October 2014: Closed

Champion has gone dark. This seems most likely to be a police closure following on from the closure of the upstairs bar Spicy Girls in the same ownership. A thuggish bouncer assaulted a customer who had enough clout for the police to take action. This ended up with Champion being raided as it shared a manager with Spicy Girls.

 News from Ishi, July 2013: Oh No Not the Whistles

Champion has been struggling of late and the management have decided to do something different. And unfortunately the new idea is to try a pussy tricks show.

The happy hour has ended and the draft beer is now 85 Baht.

There is an entry charge for people snared by touts which includes a drink. It is still free to those that walk in independently.

 Review from Sedrik, July 2013: Unchampionlike

The bar was very quiet on a late night visit. There were only 2 customers inside, including me.

There were 12 or so dancers, and all of them were full coyote. No topless, no nude, only coyote. And if that wasn't bad enough, the ladies were well below average.

The mamasan said she was trying hard to recruit new ladies, but without success at the moment.

Not a gogo for me.

  Review March 2013: Minimal Dancers

I visited at prime time and there wasn't much doing.

There were 5 or 6 girls dancing in black latex shorts and were mostly topless. None of the girls would be expecting much in the way of barfine attraction.

There didn't seem to much in the way of customer interaction either, possibly out of customer choice.

The bar had a fair smattering of customers, but maybe more to do with inexpensive drinks rather than for the selection of some female company.

This was one of several bars that I visited that were scraping along on a minimal number of dancers. Bars need to offer pretty girls OR interactive fun OR else a show. The prospects look a bit bleak for bars that offer none of these.

  News from Ishi November 2011: Less Happy Monday

The 'Monday night is happy all night' promotion has ended.

  News from Ishi August 2011: Shower

A couple of weeks ago, Champion installed a shower room. It's at the far end of the bar. Two naked ladies take a shower together.

  Review March 2011: Scaling Down

Apart from the cheap drinks the bar doesn't seem to have an awful lot to offer at the moment.

The onset of low season has meant something of a slowdown in this bar. There are still plenty of bars that attract a good trade but Champion hasn't really been one of them for quite a while. It's not really a high energy sort of place and the girls are on the wrong side of average.

The bar is hardly stylish and the facilities leave something to be desired.

At times gone by the girls generally danced nude but now topless is the norm. And the low season reduction in the number of girls means that they are hard pressed to fill the bar's many dancing stations.

This ends up with the girls dancing too much and not really having enough time to take care of their customers.

So it rather ends up a bar with not enough below average girls with not really enough time to take of customers. Hardly the recipe for Walking Street success.

  Review August 2010: Improved a Bit

First of all it is was good to feel that the aircon has been fixed since my last visit although maybe they are still economising somewhat.

And whilst thinking of improvements it was also good see a handful of very attractive girls on the dancing team. Still plenty of old stagers though. The bar has decided that knickers are now required whereas on a previous visit, these were considered as overdressing.

The drinks prices are still more or less the cheapest on Walking Street.

In fact the bar seems well run and a decent place for a beer.

It never seems to warrant more than a beer though, primarily because the girls seem to be always dancing with little time left to sit with customers. This seems to have been an almost permanent failing ever since the bar introduced the table dancing tables. Just too many dance positions to fill for the amount of girls sustainable by the customer base.

  Review March 2010: Old Times and Old Timers

First, the good news.  There was a very pretty girl showing her all in a Jacuzzi, recently installed in the centre of the main stage.

Secondly, the bad news. The rest! To be fair though, this is the same as always and regular customers will have gotten used to it by now.

The girls are generally below average but that doesn't mean that it's bad, the Walking Street average is pretty high. Most of the girls dance naked in Champion, but somehow this is not the highlight of the bar.

But being a regular, then I can be quite forgiving, particularly as the beer is cheap and the girls are friendly.

The toilet has needed an upgrade for as long as I can remember and now the aircon seems to be added to the knackered list.

But I still enjoyed the visit though, the downsides don't really matter much if one has enjoyable company.

  Review July 2009: Lots of Dancers

The summer low season seemed to have taken its toll a bit and the very cheap beer was no longer packing in the customers.

There were some attractive girls dancing but there weren't really enough girls in the bar to cover the large number they now have dancing at any one time. At the end of their spell they only have a couple of songs before have to mount the stage for another dance stint. The poor ratio of hostessing girls to dancing girls is always a cue for me to leave pronto. But if you like to watch, and don't want to be pestered by the girls then perhaps it is OK.

The toilets could do with a refurb.

I always have a soft spot for the bar, as I fondly recall the old days when it was the best hands-on bar in town. Now I just stay long enough to reminisce old times before it is time to move on to the latest best hands-on bars in Pattaya

Club Mistys on Soi 15 off Walking Street seems to have buried their coyote experiment, which is a good thing.

They now have three teams of about ten bikini and topless dancers each. The standard outfit is a black string with or without a matching top now. Several newcomers however still were wearing colourful beach bikinis with way too big pants.

For those interested: on 22nd July the funny (in)famous waitress Wa (number 201; waitresses are numbered from 201 on, so she is the leading lady of the waitresses), who shows everybody her string, celebrates her 30th birthday. There are some stories about her on internet forums.

And for those who like to spend a penny on charity, there is a donation box for the orphans at the Camillian Social Centre in Rayong.

Noteworthy about Club Mistys is that, if you are more or less a regular, if you barfine a girl you are linked to her by the staff and you are expected not to barfine other girls, unless your personal girl is unavailable or has stopped working there.

  Review June 2014: Half coyote

It was a while ago I had visited Misty's on Soi 15 off Walking Street.

I was unpleasantly surprised by the fact that all of a sudden half of the staff had become coyotes.

Assistant manager Tim explained that it becomes increasingly difficult to find the right girls.

Nevertheless there were still some cuties among the regular bikini and topless dancers.

Bottled Heineken at 145 baht, lady drinks at 150 baht.

  Review December 2012: Still Disappointing

I visited Walking Street on a packed peak season evening. After finding that my favourite bars were way too crowded, I made up a backup list of bars that I felt would be less crowded. And so I tried Mistys. And indeed it was pretty quiet in there but thankfully not deserted.

There was a decent selection of girls packed onto the central stage, mostly nicely attired in not very much.

Unfortunately the girls were more or less ignoring the customers. As usual, there did not seem much point staying  beyond the traditional single beer.

  Review January 2011: Disappointing

On the face of it, the bar has many good things going for it.

It is a large, modern, nicely styled bar with comfortable seating around the edge of the bar, just in front of that are large table dancing stages and there is the main stage in the centre.

There are usually plenty of attractive girls on show with about half dancing at any one time.

In addition the bar has a well liked host and good support on Pattaya forums. Presumably these two points are linked.

But for all of this the bar is generally very quiet. I for one find it a very lonely bar and I suspect that the overall lack of customers is probably down to other people having the same experience. I don't think there is any particular discouragement from girls hooking up with the guys because there are usually a couple of customers being well looked after.

I put it down to perhaps just the layout of the bar not being very conducive to the usual smiles, body language and proximity that usually do the biz in other bars.

Possibly the bar is just a little too large and the guys in the comfy seating are just out of range of the girls dancing on the central stage. There are table dancers a bit closer, but it is usually more comfortable and less awkward to watch the centre stage girls at normal eye level than try and watch someone towering nearly directly above.

Even when the girls are walking around the bar they are still a fair way away from customers and it is not easy to catch their glance.

Anyway, just a guess, trying to wonder why the bar is not as good as it really should be.

  Review July 2010: More Girls

The bar has enjoyed a recent surge in the numbers of girls dancing in the bar. And to add to the attraction, there are quite a few that are very pleasing on the eye.

This means that the bar is quite busy in terms of dancing. there is a circuit of girls for the tables around the outside of the bar. There is a circuit of dancers on the central stage and a couple more doing a play mat show with the usual thwack foam sticks, again on the central stage.

Plenty of girls left over for hostessing duty too. But to be honest, this does not seem one of their favourite occupations. They seem to prefer to chat amongst themselves.

Perhaps the best bet for a bit of interaction is to sit stage side and play with the girls with the thwack sticks.

  Review February 2010: Elusive

The bar is still one of Pattaya's more impressive GoGo designs. The mix of neon, chrome, spiral staircase, balcony, table dancing stages and centre stage looks the Biz.

On my last visit there were plenty of girls and there were several that were well attractive.

There's a reasonably priced draft beer and the rest of the prices are typical of many competing bars.

There's an affable host who seems to be a centre of attention.

And yet with all these good thing in place, the bar is pretty near a 100% guaranteed failure for me to attract the attention of a drinking partner. And looking around the bar I am not the only abject failure in town. The bar rarely seems busy in terms of customer count and a fair few fellow customers are usually sharing my Mr Lonely posture.

Probably just me, but maybe the girls need a nudge to become a little bit more pro-active about taking care of customers.

  Review June 2009: Ratios

I still drop by for the occasional look see but never stay long because the dancing ratio doesn't really give the customers a fair chance for much time with the girls. Whenever I have dropped by there are many more girls dancing than hostessing such that the girls were only hanging around for 3 dances before starting on another 6 dance stint.

Just a personal taste thing, and I did see a large party who were clearly enjoying themselves. The trick being to be able to have a good banter with your mates whilst the girls are away for the majority of their time. Then you can spoil the girls rotten for the short time that they are at your side.

There's an affable host on hand for a chat should you not bring your mates with you.

Most things are spot on about the bar. It looks good, there are some good looking girls and they take off plenty of clothes when dancing. Drinks are reasonable with a plenty of happy hour options too.

  Review from Nikko, August 2014: One of the best A-GoGos on Walking Street

One of the best A-GoGos on Walking Street as of today.

Had a couple of naked girls in the shower (very rare now) and several girls were showing their breasts (wow exceptional).

Waitress were very pushy for lady drink, 2 ugly ladies jumped on me and my friends and immediately the waitress was asking us to pay a drink. The one on me was easily 40, her face was full of wrinkles but her body was still firm compared with the fat pigs in their 20's harboring their 7/11 died on stage! She did a good job at dancing on me, like in the good old days. My friend had to kick his girl out as she was so ugly I could not believe she could work in an A-GoGo. Her body was ok, but her face was disgusting! He switched with one girl with amazing breasts named Da. She was funny, speaking perfect English that she learned at the University and deserved a lady drink.

Overall, even if the experience was 2* compared with 5 years ago, it was the best place we visited that night.

Barfines are 1000 baht, draft was 80 everything else including water +110, lady drink 150 baht.

The music was not so load, and not as crap as in most A-GoGos.

  Review from Dave, July 2014: Well worth a visit

I walked into Crazy House Friday night. There are coyote, Bikini and topless Dancers, and a bathtub with naked girls soaping themselves,

The standard of girl is very high, some of the coyote dancers are stunning.

Well worth a visit.

Coyote dancers 2500-3000 short time and 4000 up long time.

ps; most of the staff seem to have come from Sweethearts.

  Review from Dick Farang, June 2014: Skinny

Last Friday Crazy House opened on Walking Street at the location where Teazers used to be.

It had seating at both sides, eight small round stages with a chrome pole on each of them and a square jacuzzi.

There were bikini, topless and naked dancers and pushy coyotes.

Apart from one or two, they were all far below average, and some looked very skinny in an unhealthy way.

The drink menus looked very similar to the ones at Shark/Tiger/Fahrenheit/Lighthouse/Mandarin.

Draught beer all night at 80 baht, bottled Heineken at 140 baht, lady drinks at 140 baht.

  Review from Dick Farang, August 2014: Whale Net Tights

Cream Club (formerly Baron Club) at the end of Soi Diamond had, to my surprise, a couple of customers.

The layout has become even stranger. More than half of the available floor area is not really made use of.

In the front are now three small marble covered stages, one square one and two round ones. The first of those stages has a chrome rail and the two other ones have a chrome pole on them.

Between the leather sofas on the right hand-side are some rather unstable high round tables with barstools.

There is also an unused shower cubicle.

All the girls, many of them rather looking like ladyboys, were wearing stay-up stockings or whale net tights. Their tops were big and some were also wearing camisoles. Occasionally some of them bared their bolt-ons.

Bottled Heineken 140 baht.

  Notes, December 2013: Gentlemen's Club

The bar is decorated as per a London gentlemen's club with lavish leather sofas and wood panel decor. There are only 3 dancing stations suggesting that it is hoped that bar will become a meeting point and hangout bar in addition to the GoGo elements.

Soon after opening the coyotes gave way to more traditional GoGo wear.

  News from Ishi, December 2013: First Glance

Cream Club opens at 8pm usually, but it opened after 10pm on its debut night.

The bar has connections with Casino Club and Night Train Bar.

I took only a brief look yesterday, it was almost a coyote bar but it has a shower booth with topless ladies.

The venue was dark on 15th November but re-opened on 26th November.

Dick Farang adds that the bar is closed for 'renovation': this sounds a bit weird as at my last visit the upholstery looked like brand new.

 Review from Dick Farang, October 2014: Faded glory

From outside Diamond A-GoGo on Soi Diamond looks like a faded glory, but inside the black upholstery looks like brand new.

Not so brand new were the dancers: most of them seemed to belong to the 30 to 40 years age bracket.

There were about ten dancers, half of them in half- transparent bodies and the other half in beach bikinis with big bottoms.

They danced for about 15 minutes in teams of 3 or 4 and towards the end of their dance stint they exposed their breasts.

They did not trouble the customer(s).

On the positive side, the music was less blaring than at many places, I did not see Bangkok models, coyotes or hostesses and there was much less silicone on display than in the past.

Shots were offered, but not in a pushy way.

At prime time (around midnight) I was their only customer for most of the time and I realised how spacious it looks when it is nearly empty.

The toilets are decent compared to those at most Soi Diamond gogos, especially at the neighbour Spanky's.

The drinks bar in the back left is way too big for its purpose.

Compared to some cramped mini gogos, such as Crazy House and Lighthouse, Diamond A-GoGo is more than spacious enough, but no good use is made of it.

Bottled Heineken 140 baht, special promotion: Leo 90 baht all night.

 Comments from Sedrik, July 2013: Very not busy

I visited at prime time at about 12:30 but there was only me inside.

The ladies seemed bored. Nothing really to work for. And none of them made an effort to come over and talk to me.

There were more than a dozen ladies, dressed in the range of coyote to topless.

  Review from Mike of stayinginthailand.com, March 2013: A somewhat underrated establishment

As mentioned previously this place is under new management.

If you were a frequent visitor in the past like me, you'll probably remember that Diamond had very high priced Agency models on select nights. So under the new management it appears as if that is done now.

This place gets more crowded as the night goes on and it stays open late. I have been there when it was very late and there was a lively crowd in there, but I'd prefer to go early because you have your pick of some pretty girls.

The girls take turns on stage, one topless shift and then one coyote. The dancers don't bother you unless you want them to and once you engage them they're fun. It's not an elite lineup but I think veterans would be pleasantly surprised by it.

The prettiest girl quoted me 600 for bf and 2,000 for sort of a hybrid st/lt. It was early in the night at that point and she made it clear that for 2,000 she would stay with me for 4 or 5 hours but wanted to sleep on her own bed.

They always have plenty of staff there so you never have to wait for a drink and the atmosphere is good. Overall the prices aren't too bad, the girls are solid, and it's a nice enough comfortable place.

  News February 2013: Under New Ownership

Diamond A-GoGo has changed hands. The bar seems to be targeting a late night crowd and runs from 9pm until 4:30am or later.

The bar has introduced a good happy hour from 9 until 11pm when beers are 80 Baht and spirits 90 Baht.

  Review September 2010: Pants!

The bar was pretty quiet at about a 10pm visit.

There were 7 or 8 girls on stage all in bikinis and wearing two pairs of panties. The girls were about average which means that a fair few would be up for barfines if ever customers turn up.

The girls were putting a decent effort into dancing, perhaps spurred on by the loud music that shakes the bar fittings

There was another team of dancers waiting for their turn to dance  but they showed very little signs of interacting with the handful of customers in attendance.

The bar is a bit old hat with traditional bikini clad dancing and the girls seemingly waiting for their number to be called. Perhaps nobody on their management has noticed that things have moved on and that most successful bars now have to be sexy, fun and interactive (or else have jaw droppingly pretty girls to hold the audience entranced without the need for the fun and interaction).

  Review from Pattaya Secrets, March 2010: A Little Bit Happy

Diamond has never done much for me so maybe the review would be best left to someone who appreciates the bar. But for some reason Diamond rarely crops up in conversation except to say how expensive it is to barfine Bangkok showgirls.

I always think of Diamond as small version of Happy A-GoGo. It generally has a good selection of girls, the drinks are reasonably priced, and most of the customers are here to watch pretty girls rather than do much in the way of interaction. That's not to say the girls are unfriendly, they seem approachable enough. But they do not pro-actively seek out customers.

Only my last visit there was a team of about 8 dancers who were a bit coy with their dress sense. After a while they gave way to another team, presumably the showgirls, who weren't so coy. But it was hardly a riveting performance.

The music is on the loud side but maybe not quite so extreme as days of old.

 Review from Dick Farang, November 2014: Dreaming of success

Rumour has it that Dream Club A-GoGo on Soi Diamond is struggling to survive.

Around the square stage is bench seating and even two tiers of it along two of the walls, but there were very few customer bums on it.

The toilets are very minimal with, apart from a washbasin, only one urinal in a very cramped space, too narrow for the average farang.

The boss (manager, I think) at Dream Club is a tiny, bald Scot.

This gogo is solely relying upon 500-baht freelancers rented by the day.

There were a lot of overdressed coyotes clad in black. The only nudity I saw were three fatties performing a lousy strip act.

Barfine is a steep 900 baht and the girls complained they do not get barfined at that price level.

As they have to work until 4 a.m. they have a hard time finding punters on the streets after work.

A 30-year old coyote with lots of lipstick, who was maaw maak maak, tried to kiss my mouth. When I tried to fend her off, she soiled my shirt with lipstick, one of the hazards of the job I guess.

Bottled Heineken 145 baht.

  News August 2014: For Sale

The bar has now posted signs saying For Sale 6M Baht

  Review from Dave, June 2014: Dreaming of Rain Coats?

I popped into Dream club, Soi Diamond last week. A very forgettable experience.

The music was ear shattering, the girls on the stage were wearing rain coats. There were no gogo girls just coyote dancers, the one I spoke to was from Bangkok.

There was one fat bird about 40 doing pussy tricks.

When we left the best looking girls were outside.

One to miss.

  Review from Dick Farang, April 2014: Does it still count as a GoGo?

Does Dream Club on Soi Diamond still count as a gogo ?

I was there yesterday evening and I only saw coyotes (several of them overweight) and one ugly naked female.

The music was too loud to allow any conversation.

The fattest one of the bunch came to sit next to me and I pushed her away. I know that is rude, but if they cannot control their eating habits they should look for a different job.

I saw a bald farang there who was probably the owner or manager, but he did not seem to care much.

Bottled Heineken was 145 baht.

I voted with my feet.

 Review December 2013: One for the quick look-see circuit

I stopped by at a prime time on a weekday evening.

The bar was a bit quiet in terms of customers but certainly not empty. The seating is certainly better laid out than previous versions of Carousel. It is at least inviting to find a comfortable seat with a good view of the stage.

There were 2 teams of dancers, one totally coyote clad and the other bikini and topless. The coyote team seemed a little disinterested and seemed a bit regimental in their 3 by 3 arrangement on the stage. The bikini clad team were certainly more entertaining.

I'm not really sure why bars segregate coyotes. I think mixed teams would do a better job of ensuring that there was always something for everyone. Otherwise seeing a team of dancers you are not interested in take to the stage can be a unnecessary prompt to exit.

The draft was 75 Baht and is probably needed as the bar is a bit of a look-see type of GoGo where there isn't really much going on beyond the basic scouting for a nice takeaway.

 News from Ishi September 2013: Draft

Dream Club has kicked out the coyotes and started serving 60B draught beer. Bar fines are now from 600B to 800B (botomless dancer).

 Future plans from Dream Club, August 2013: Dreaming about the Future

The  bar  is hoping to introduce a slightly lower bar fine for short times of 800/600 and perhaps to make this apply for all barfines later.

There are about 35 girls in the club although this gets reduced by girls being bar fined for several days at a time.

Draft beer will soon be introduced at about the 75 Baht mark.

VIP cards and Thai style buying spirits by the bottle will also be introduced soon.

  Review from Mike of stayinginthailand.com, February 2013: Justifiably Expensive

Fahrenheit was relatively empty when I was there this week; I'm not sure if that was a fluke or if the higher prices are keeping people away. They do have a draft beer special at 80 baht but the rest of the drinks are about as pricey as you'll find.

It's a nice place and it's very comfortable. They have well spaced out seating surrounding the stage which is in the middle of the club. There were about 12 girls working, all dancing either topless or nude. Half of the girls in there had Barbie Doll bodies which may or may not be your thing. I was more than a little surprised by this when I first went in because I don't think I've ever seen such a high percentage of bodies quite like that in one place. There were two dime pieces in attendance that night; about as good as it'll get. There were also a few other very pretty girls as well so overall I'm sure the talent that night could have competed with just about any other Gogo in Pattaya.

I'm not in love with the attitudes on the girls, they were a bit stiff and seemed to be rushing through their drinks. They were just a little too professional, but the hotter girls tend to have attitudes like that anywhere you go. I'm sure the two stunners in there would charge ridiculous rates for st/lt. I'm also sure they could be negotiated down a bit. I just didn't have the opportunity to get quotes from the stunners but I would expect to pay 3,000 and up depending on what kind of mood they're in.

So while the prices are high, this keeps it from being packed and the place is really cozy. It's also one of a very short list of places you can go where you're likely to see a gorgeous girl. This kind of place has appeal to the certain kind of guys and I would certainly go again.

  Review March 2012: Well Developed Customer Appeal

The bar has built up a good following and is usually pretty full.

The success is built on an above average team of dancers. The bar also seems to have developed a speciality for busty dancers.

There were about 10 girls dancing and perhaps another 10 waiting their turn. The girls were dancing in dress codes from coyote to topless.

The atmosphere was lively and most customers seemed to be enjoying themselves. I felt perhaps there were too few girls for hostessing duties but otherwise all seemed well.

There were a couple of girls doing the rounds with a tray of tequila shots but they did not seem unduly pushy.

  News from Ishi, August 2011: A Change of Rotation

Until November, the dancers were split into 2 teams, and each team danced for 20 minutes. Whilst dancing the girls did not rotate around the stage.

From December, the pattern changed a little. The teams still dance for 20 minutes, but half way through their set, the girls at the front and back switch their position to the opposite end of the stage.

I enjoyed this change because I was able to get a look at more of the dancers.

  News from Ishi, August 2011: Show

After a break Fahrenheit shows have returned with 4 coyotes take off their costumes one by one.

  News from Ishi, March 2011: Show

Fahrenheit has started a simple show with five dancers starting in bikinis and string-skirt. Just one show at 10pm for the moment

  Review November 2010: Manic

I visited on a very busy Friday night and the bar seemed pretty packed with customers.

The bar is smaller on the inside than perhaps you would expect from the outside. There is comfortable bench seating around the sides of the bar and stools at stage side. And for future expansion there is an upstairs area not in use on my visit.

There is a narrowish central stage running the length of the bar and it had plenty of decent looking dancers amongst the 15 on stage. 12 out of the 15 were bikini clad but 3 girls at the front were baring all, perhaps they were show girls.

At a change of shift all of the dancers departed the stage and were replaced by another team. So plenty of girls on hand.

Several girls were entertaining customers so it looks quite a friendly place too.

I found it a rather manic atmosphere lots of girls milling round being shooed out of seats as customers were piling in.

Actually at a toilet break I realised that the bar was not as crowded as it first appeared as the bank end of the bar was deserted. There were a couple of reasons for this, all of the naked girls were strictly pinned to the front end of the stage, no doubt to give a good impressions as customers stepped through the door. Views from the back end of the bar were strictly bikini clad.

Also the stage side seating seems to block the passage ways a bit (like Iron) so it is a little bothersome to push past everyone to the seats at the back.

The drinks prices are in the reasonable range for a lively bar and there is the traditional cheap draft.

Anyway the bar has worked up quite a lively atmosphere in a relatively short space of time so all bodes well.

  Review from Dick Farang, December 2014: I came back later

As I promised I went back to Gentlemen's Club on Soi Diamond.

At first sight not much has changed since last July.

Around 1 a.m. there were several customers and about a dozen dancers, most of them clad in black, two, three or four of them on stage. The dance stints were still a boring 15 to 20 minutes long.

Apart from the bikini dancers mostly in strings, there were also coyotes with black transparent camisoles over their big tops. One of bikini dancers had put a transparent white neglige over her black bikini and another one was wearing a pink string under her black string.

Towards the end of their dance stints some of the bikini dancers took off their tops. None were wearing pasties on their nipples.

The girls were all around thirty years and the coyotes had ugly bellies.I would not be surprised if they were rented by the day.

Bottled Heineken still 140 baht, lady drinks still 135-200 baht, daily specials 60 baht, draught beer also 60 baht (perhaps not every day).

  Review from Dick Farang, November 2014: Later

Rumour has it that Gentlemen's Club on Soi Diamond is Russian owned now.

I had a look shortly after midnight and there were no customers and nobody was on stage.

There were a dozen overdressed girls hanging around.

They were all clad in black, which seems to have become the colour of freelancers hired by the day.

Not the slightest nudity.

I promised to come back later.

  News October 2014: Pasties

New owners have taken over and have introduced the unpopular policy of making previously topless girls wear pasties

  Review from Dick Farang, July 2014: Slightly Improved

Gentlemen's Club on Soi Diamond has slightly improved since my last visit and that was badly needed.

I saw six topless dancers in black lingerie (agency girls ?) who also performed some lousy shows. One of them had ridiculous bolt-ons.

I also saw seven dancers in bikinis and transparent camisoles, among them a fat shapeless one, and a bunch of boring noisy hostesses.

The dance stints were extremely long.

From time to time tequila shots were offered for sale.

I did not see the owner or a mamasan.

Around 11 p.m. for a while I was the only customer.

They appear to sell a discount card at 500 baht, but who cares ?

Tiger draught 95 baht, bottled Heineken 140 baht, tequila shots 135 baht, lady drinks 135-200 baht.

  News June 2012: Lucky Dip

The lucky dip policy of whether the bar will be GoGo or coyote seems to be dependent on the girls that turn up for work rather being down to alternate days. Still a lucky dip though.

  News from Ishi, May 2012: Lucky Dip

Gentlemen's Club seems to be trying a unique policy of GoGo days alternating with coyote days.

On a GoGo days the girls are mostly bikini clad with some topless.

The alternating started with the 27th May being a GoGo day and the 28th being a coyote day.

It would be interesting to know how it pans out and whether the bar has a bigger take on GoGo days.

The now has a 50 Baht Happy Hour until 10pm.

  Review from Dave, October 2014: Chain drinking

I was in Walking street last night after the storm. A girl I know named Ying called me over to her agogo. It's called Ginsa.

It is a small narrow place with very uncomfortable seating but with some attractive girls, mostly coyote, but some topless.

Drinks are expensive at 80 baht for draft and 160 for Lady Drink. There is a lot of pressure put on you to buy lady drinks and when Ying had finished her drink the waitress hovered in front of me waving the glass under my nose. I declined to buy another one.

A place for tourists rather than us poor ex-pats.

  News April 2014: Coyote Bar

No dancers wearing bikinis or less have been spotted since September 2013. Nudity later spotted in April 2014.

  News from Ishi, June 2013: Upstairs

Ginza now has some bottomless dancers on the upper floor. The upper bar is used when the ground floor is full. It's a  good job as the downstairs bars is coyote only.

   Review from Mike of stayinginthailand.com, March 2013: You could do worse

Ginza has a Japanese theme but they spent about as much money on their theme decor as a dragon roll would cost. There are more important things to worry about than having an impressive look though.

It's a very narrow club, almost uncomfortably narrow. There is an upstairs room but after enough girls get barfined they close it down, figure by 1AM every night.

They had a draft beer special and the girls seemed reasonable enough with their prices, so you're not going to get hit hard in the wallet here.

The girls were very fun, but I can't say the talent was any better than average and it could have been slightly below average. The girl I spent some time with was cute and had a great body, she was by far the prettiest girl there when I was there, but she was 30. I could care less and I even prefer a girl who is 30 over 20, but this should give you insight about where their recruitment stands in the pecking order. The best looking girl they have there, they probably only have her because of her age.

I won't give a bad review for a place with good service, decent prices, and fun girls; and Ginza certainly has all three. You can have a good time there and if you wind up there one night while you're Gogo hopping you'll be fine. But the roster isn't great and the place isn't comfortable, so it's not a place you have to see.

  Review from Eyebee, October 2012: More Upstairs

I was in Ginza last night around midnight. They did have draught beer for 65 baht as opposed to the 59 baht it costs during happy hour.

The upstairs bar is now open and features nude and topless dancers, while the downstairs dancers are now bikini-clad. However the upstairs bar is very tiny and only features 2 or 3 dancers at a time.

  Review from Dick Farang, June 2014: Unimpressed

A couple of days ago I visited Glass House/Ginza II on Walking Street.

I did not notice any major changes, signs of refurbishments or improvements; even the neon sign was still Glass House.

The dancers were all ugly and/or fat and/or overdressed.

The dancers and waitresses were rather pushy for lady drinks.

Although I was the only customer inside, there was a foul cigarette smoke smell everywhere; I think their air con is in a crying need of a thorough maintenance.

Bottled Heineken was a steep 150 baht, which was completely unjustified by the quality of the premises and the staff.

 Review from Dave, August 2014: Attractive showgirls

I popped into Happy last night, as I usually do once a week, there was a good crowd.

Lots of beautiful girls as always, mostly bikini , some topless and a few Coyote dancers.

The drink prices are still the same but the price off boomboom has risen,  now 2500 short time and 4500 long time.

The showgirls are very attractive, much better than Baccara or Peppermint.

  Review December 2011: Constant

I visited at midnight, on a weekday, a couple of weeks before Christmas.

And it was pretty much the same successful looking GoGo that it has always been.

The stage was pretty well packed with dancers, most of them being topless. Surely an above average crew, but not quite the top notch. That accolade is reserved for Baccara these days.

There were a couple of coyote dancers on the centre stage and disappointingly the small corner stage, once knickerless, is now well overdressed. At some point in the last couple of years it has been hijacked by coyotes.

The crowd was a mixture of guys gawping at the girls, a few sitting with girls, and there were even a few farang couples converting a corner of the bar into an impromptu disco.

Perhaps not quite the packed audiences of old, but that's fine by me. In fact the bar was probably about 2/3rds full.

As always, the male service is spot on in terms of efficiency, but way off mark in terms of an opportunity for a chat.

All seems well at Happy.

  Review October 2010: Not Quite Number One

It wasn't so long ago that Happy and Peppermint had a nice niche sown up of being the top falang bars operating a pick a number and go. Customers would watch the top notch girls dancing for a few drinks hile pondering their options for a takeway.

More recently the group have added Baccara and The Cavern to their list of similarly run bars.

It is therefore interesting to note how the extra two venues has impacted Happy.

There simply aren't enough top notch girls in Pattaya to maintain a totally jaw dropping line up in each of the 4 bars.

In fact Baccara is now easily the number one of the group. It is the only one of the 4 that has a near complete set of very attractive girls.

Happy and Peppermint are now a very good 2nd tier. But the line up is no longer exclusively top notch, there are a significant proportion of average girls. (the Walking Street average is pretty good though).

I wonder if this will change the dynamics of the bar. Generally average girls are not going to be picked off stage by the ruminating customers. Usually they have to take a more interactive approach to obtaining barfines, by adding their sweet personalities to their list of attractions.

Also having more average girls may rather challenge the premium prices commanded by dictat at Happy.

  Review April 2010: Happy as a Coyote

As you'd expect with an ever popular bar, they mostly stick with their formula and changes are rare.

So indeed there was the usual stage full of pretty girls doing a reasonable stab at energetic dancing. And as usual, they were not really making much effort to play the audience. There's no need for the girls to be pro-active at Happy, the guys soon do the requesting.

But there was one recent change though, coyote dancers had joined the bikini clad and topless gogo girls. The coyotes were wearing big bras and the usual short denim shorts with the fly half undone.

It will be interesting to see if the idea works at Happy. For me, coyote dancing is nothing but negative, and most bars offering coyote dancing as the main spectator sports seem to founder.  There seems to be a fundamental correlation between girls who would rather not take off their clothes to girls who are choosy, offish or pricey when it comes to customer care. Best avoided in my book.

Otherwise things still seemed good in Happy. Customers were still calling down pretty ladies and the watchers seemed happy enough to bide their time whilst sipping alone. Perhaps the bar was a little less crowded than on previous visits but probably just the low season norm.

  News January 2010: Sign of the Times

Happy is now sporting a flashy new sign

  Review April 2009: Personal Space

I'd make a lousy bar owner. If I fashioned a bar according to my own likes and dislikes, I'd end up losing out on some of the most popular bars in Pattaya, and Happy is one of them.

I often pop by Happy early evening for one drink whilst planning an itinerary for the rest of the evening. It is perfect for a quick drink, as it has very good looking dancers, reasonable drinks prices and no hassle from the girls (not that hassle is a bad thing mind you, I do particularly like being hassled by a girl jumping on to my lap).

There are plenty of girls on stage and they have a very long dance roster, but that's ok, not many of them have drinking partners waiting for their return.

The girls on the main stage dance topless and it must be said that the basic gogo dancing is some of the more energetic in town.

All well and good, and maybe too good. Later on the crowds come to enjoy the entertainment. At this time the bar is everything that I don't want from a bar. More than likely you will get ushered to one of the last remaining seats in the bar, usually a stage side stool jammed between 2 other occupied stools.

Now then its a question of priorities, do you want to watch some of the prettiest girls in town? or do you want to have a comfortable seat and the space for a girl at your side? (even if getting a girl is as yet, just a hope). Call me strange but I prefer the comfortable seat and a bit of room to breathe. But at least I can see the point of view of those jammed into the small stage-side stools enjoying the pretty dancers.

  Review from Dick Farang, April 2014: Cramped

One day after its opening, I visited Harem A Go Go (Harem 2) on Walking Street opposite Baccara.

It was a narrow building (about 4 metres broad), inside it was small and it was arranged more like a table dance style gogo. At each side were three booths, each with a pole on the table.

Behind that were the disc jockey and one more booth with a table and pole that seemed to be the gathering place of the staff.

The seating was extremely uncomfortable, even much more cramped than at Angelwitch.

The toilets were at the first floor, which was a complete mess.

Most dancers were coyotes, nothing to write home about, but there were also girls in black bikinis. Two or three of those bikini girls occasionally took off their tops.

Most customers appeared to come from the subcontinent.

Bottled Heineken was 130 baht.

The mamasan from Harem Flatrate Sensation on Soi Diamond, who also was there, told lady drinks were 180 baht and barfine 1,500 baht. When I asked her if that was all-in, she answered: No, this is Walking Street.

  News September 2014: 10th Anniversary

The bar has a 10th Anniversary celebration on 12th September 2014.

  Review February 2012: Savoury

A bit of rare visit as I have had little success with the girls. However the bar provided a pleasant environment for a beer.

There were about 10 girls on stage and a couple on show podiums, albeit one of them just on the ledge around the side of the stage. The show girls were more or less naked with just a negligee for decoration. The dancers were bikini clad or topless. The girls were a little above average and several of them were playing the audience well with a few smiles, and maybe checks for interest in a lady drink later on.

The service was notably good, with the little bonus of the girls bringing around dishes of savoury popcorn.

I reckon this rates as one of the better 'watching' bars, but when it comes to something more interactive, then there is a knack that I haven't found yet. Some customers had found the secret though, so maybe just me.

  Review June 2010: Specialist

Heaven Above is perhaps a little different to most Pattaya GoGos and has developed its own style.

It features a central stage full of attractive girls. They operate in two teams. There's the GoGo dancers who do a very long and slow advance round the stage. They wear their own choice of dance attire ranging from quite a lot to not much at all.

There's also a second team of negligee clad girls who occupy one end of the stage, the low brick wall around the stage, and a couple of small side stages.

The main stage is low and the bar is not large, so most seats get a good show.

The subtle difference though, is more to do with the interaction between the girls and customers. Customers who sit quietly will probably get left well alone. Even customers signaling over a girl may well get short shrift too. The trick seems to get into more of a party frame of mind. The chances are that the girls will pick up on the vibe and take it from there.

Not a bar for everyone but it has enough fans to keep it lively late at night. Can be very slow earlier in the evening.

  Review from Materialsman, Oct 2009: Marxist Mindset

One of my favourites is Heavens Above. Once more it didn't disappoint me, some honey's here as always, they seemed to be having some sort of Daisy Duke thing going amongst the staff, you know the look, tiny denim shorts, check shirts tied at the waist, straw hats etc. and very nice it looked too!

I know some of the show girls here have a reputation of bad attitude, but frankly I have never had a problem with any girl from here, maybe through my very persona, I dress reasonably well, I'm not a complete 'fugly', and I treat the girls in my company well. Hey, maybe I have become a member of the Heavens Above clique that some guys whisper darkly of, that's an amusing thought, I've always held on to the Groucho Marx mindset towards belonging to clubs and cliques.

  Review October 2009: Pretty in Heaven

I tend to visit the bar for a hassle free beer that makes for a pleasant backdrop whilst planning the evening.

The bar is attractive with a white theme. There is a fair sized central stage and also a play mat area towards the back of the bar.

There are always a goodly amount of girls on the stage and they are an above average crew. The dancing girls choose their own attire and how much or how little they are happy with.

There are also a few girls, maybe classed as showgirls, who wear negligees. They seem to hold dominion over the raised step around the edge of the stage.

The girls have a very long dance roster rather suggesting that the bar is for watching the girls rather than interacting with them. Well that's my excuse anyway, the girls never seem very interested in me.

  Review by Pattaya Today: Night March, April 2009: Tight Butts

For me, and others I know, Heaven Above has the number one position as far as sheer number of small-bodied, tight-butt dancing damsels is concerned.

The den has also introduced a theme-style night as far as clothing goes, with girls in schoolgirl-style uniforms one evening and then cowgirl tops, shorts and hats the next, and so on.

  Review from Pattaya Talk, April 2009: Interaction

Has always provided a great breed of fare for the eye but an improvement has been made in recent times; that improvement is in terms of interaction, the ladies seem much more willing to gyrate in your direction

  Review from Materialsman, Dec 2008: Stunning Girls

Always one of my favourite Pattaya spots, and one that recently had come in for a little criticism on another Pattaya Forum.

Again the Bar was busy. I think my Heineken was again 120 baht, could have been 110, not really sure.

I did however have a brief chat with the Manager, an affable enough young Aussie chap, who was desperately trying to sell me on the idea of purchasing a special discount drink card for the minimal sum of 850 Baht, which was guaranteed to eventually save me money on my drinks. Sorry, I’m sure it is a good deal but not one I am going to go for while out having a good time and in a fairly incapacitated state, seemed a bit like a Time Share sort of deal.

As for the eye candy on view, well again recently there has been criticism of the line up, but I have to say I thought there were some stunners on show, whether or not they have pussies made of gold that pee pure Pinot Noir, and a stuck up attitude to match, I can’t really say, they certainly seemed friendly enough to my advances, and when I walked out of the club at around midnight there were fifteen very attractive hard bodied girls lined up totally buck naked on stage, and more circling the stage, what’s wrong with that scenario, I mean what more could you desire? The service staff were attentive, and some comely wenches amongst them too.

All in all, still one of the top go-go’s in Pattaya with some stunning girls, in my humble opinion.

  Review April 2009: Asians Agog

The gogo still tries to be both farang friendly and Asian coach party friendly. But on my last visit the bar was pretty near full of Asians looking agog at the razor blades being drawn from a girl's pussy.

One is tempted to be a bit dismissive of such non-erotic shows but the bar surely had more customers than some of the farang oriented gogos in town.

Whilst the bells and whistles shows continue on one stage there is a girl soaping herself in the Jacuzzi. Its not geared up to allow for much customer interaction though.

The beer prices are kept at reasonable levels for the pay as you go farangs with draft at 55 Baht.

It is very much like its sister bar, Playgirls, just down the street but this one is probably the better due to having a few more attractive girls.

  Review Oct 2008: Pretty Hot

The bar is pitched at Asian tourists in that there are no drinks prices advertised by the welcome staff who are also there to charge unsuspecting visitors an entrance charge. As always the bar is free to farangs.

But the strange thing is that it is a perfectly good bar for farang customers too. There is a cheap draft beer at 55 Baht albeit in a small glass. The lady drinks are also in line with other bars at 110 Baht.

There are some pretty dancing girls and they are happy to pop over for a chat. No undue hassle and I had a perfectly pleasant stay.

There is a bells and whistles show but it is at least simultaneous with a pretty girl soaping herself in a Jacuzzi. The shows alternate with dancing and the girls just dance 2 songs. No sooner did my drinking partners say I go dance, and she was back by my side.

Probably mostly down to my pretty hostess, but I well enjoyed my visit.

  Review Jan 2008: Not Recommended

Entrance 600 baht + 1 drink free. Girls were taller and more beautiful, only topless. but the girls were more demanding and ripped off about 1000 baht from us. I don't recommend this place to anyone. seating arrangements too were poor.

  Review Dec 2007: Schizophrenic

The new layout of the bar is the fashionable white theme complete with Jacuzzi. The bar have recruited a few pretty girls to take good advantage of the shower show.

However the bar is still persisting with the bells and whistle show. But the focus of this is a stage towards the back of the bar.

On my visit though, the bar had not yet succeeded in attracting people to watch the shower show. There was just me enjoying the pretty girls of the front stages. A coach party of people were crowded around the old stagers doing their bells and whistles thing on the back stage.

It was fine by me!

  Update from Ray, Nov 2007: Renovated Hot Girls

The bar's had a makeover rather similar to Noi's and is much improved.

The front stage has replaced by seating which has all been upgraded to comfortable white benches and there are now two smaller stages in the middle of the bar, one for dancers, one for the shower show.

The rear stage still has the occasional bells and whistles show.

Worth a look.

  Review May 2007: Off the Radar

The bar seems to warrant hardy a mention in the Pattaya forums so it was time to go and take a look for myself.

The bar is long and very narrow with a couple of side stages on opposite sides. Some seating affords very poor viewing of the stage.

There were about 20 girls of which at least one was katoey. They weren't a bad looking crew. Three were dancing on the first stage and more dance on the second stage if there are enough customers to move down into the seats overlooking that stage.

Perhaps the most striking reason for the lack of farang comments is that most of the customers are Asian. It seems that bells and whistles shows identify that a bar is targeting Asian customers.

There is a menu card on the tables that advertises fixed rates for bar fines, rooms and short time rates for the girls.

Didn't spot anything bad about the bar...it is just that there are so many better bars nearby.

  Review from Dick Farang, September 2014: Infinitely Narrow

Infinity menuInfinity A-GoGo has opened on Walking Street at the previous location of the Italian restaurant L' Italiano.

It is under Hot Girls A-GoGo and opposite Sweetheart's A-GoGo.

In the porch on the left-hand side against the staircase of Hot Girls A-GoGo is a small stage with two chrome poles and two dancers on it.

This gogo is rather narrow inside.

On the left-hand side near the entrance is a long bar.

In the middle is a central stage composed of a series of higher and lower perspex cubes with lighting inside and a chrome pole on each of them.

The seating on both sides is not deep enough to be comfortable.

On the left-hand side most of the seating consists of a kind of square pouffes along the wall with small cheap tables between them.

In the back on the left-hand side are a small similar stage, the DJ booth and the rather spacious toilets.

The lighting level is better than at most gogos.

There were five dancers on stage that went on stage one at a time, which I prefer.

They were all clad in stilettos and silver sequinned bikinis, most of them in strings, but some of them also in shorts and/or big tops of the same material.

The average quality of the girls was slightly better than what I usually see at openings.

Most girls had a very poor command of English, but knew at least two words: one drink.

I did not see any nudity apart from a dancer who was ordered by a mamasan to unveil her enormous bolt-ons.

A 35-year-old fatty had worked at Silver Star on Soi 8 previously.

There were waitresses and effeminate waiters (a trend started by Coyote Club on Walking Street).

I was told the barfine is 1,000 baht.

  News December 2010: Bangkok Models

Iron Club have added Bangkok models to their line up for the last few months. However from December (running until next February), things have changed a little.

An Iron-Mama confirmed that the previous stable of models has been replaced with higher-end models. For typical Western-born Pattaya visitors, the upgrade is really a downgrade.

While the previous models danced topless, the new dancer wear pasties on their breasts. And, unlike the previous models, these ones positively do not go with customers, at any price. You can, of course, buy one a Super Model drink, but it will cost you 250 baht for a small Coke.

Following the Walking Street trend, these new high-end models are aimed at the Russian couples, Koreans in pajamas and those content to just look and not touch.

  Review July 2010: Pumping

I've been meaning to take another look for a while now but, for obviously good reasons, the bar has always simply been too full for my tastes.

But for my latest visit I tried earlier about 10ish and it was about a third full. I sat in the middle of the bar so as to report on all the stages.

The front stage was filled with about a dozen girls in a very square military formation. They were all bikini clad except when the got to the last position, they would generally take off their tops. There were some good looking dancers but not exclusively so.

The middle Jacuzzi had a couple of girls doing the Jacuzzi thing enjoyed by a couple of ringsiders. This was not the most popular spectacle. The star stage seemed to be the back stage where the lookers were. There were usually 4 girls half dancing and half doing the usual play stage antics. They were rotating through clothing from bikinis to none.

I was well looked after by a front stage dancer who proved very diverting company. All totally hassle free and without stupidities like lady cocktails. We did have to shoo away an old mamasang who bizarrely thought she may be able to contribute something to our private proceedings.

Actually for the price of the 120 Baht lady drink or two, the girl was excused dancing duties for quite a while, at least until the bar filled and their weren't enough spare ladies to take up the slack.

All in all the visit was a complete success with the only minor gripe being the music volume making verbal conversation a bit of a strain. Still my drinking partner had gotten used to this, and developed an easy to understand tactile body language that got most necessary messages across.

  Warning from Pattaya Forums: Expensive Lady Drinks

Rapid success seems to have been too much of a temptation and there have been a fair amount of complaints about the bar appearing on Pattaya forums.

Particularly prevalent are very expensive lady drinks turning up without the customer asking for them or being told about how expensive the drink being asked for (up to 240 Baht!).

  Review by Materialsman October 2009: No Iron Hoofs

Next to the popular Airport and has a similar layout and some smartly dressed Hello girls outside, although they don't really maintain the concept throughout the staff like Airport. As discussed on various forums, the Club is unfortunately named for some London based Brits, Irons being a word associated with gays, in Cocker'nee rhyming slang, iron hoofs = poofs, fortunately there are only women dancing here.

I have read that the layout is not conducive to sitting in comfort, and I have to agree, having been trodden on a couple of times while people passed by, but it makes good use of the limited space and sort of opens out the further back you go near to the now standard Jacuzzi areas where girls were soaping each other and whipping buttocks with gay abandon. It's pretty smart inside the Club, though the quality of dancing girls left a little to be desired, but it is early days and there is time for it to get better, a sprinkling of beauties though, not all farm fresh awkward shufflers, and the Tequila girl was to die for.

I had a girl target me pretty quickly, I put that down to my beautiful new Hawaiian shirt rather than my visage, so I humoured her for a while until she went to dance/shuffle and finished my beer and made my escape, as her conversation was sadly lacking, must have been new to the scene. Can't remember the drink price, I think around 125 Baht for the bottle, reasonable enough for Walking Street, but currently I could only award a 7/10 due to the standard of girls, but I will give it another try next time, I liked the décor.

  Review October 2009: Iron Awe

An impressive looking venue with a surprisingly large, high ceiling interior.  There is bench seating down both sides of the bar.

The iron theme is perhaps a little cold, but it looks pretty good. The bar is basically long and narrow with 3 stages.  Nearest the door is a gogo stage for 9 dancers. The dancers were wearing a uniform with a futuristic theme and a short blouse garment covering the shoulders. The uniform allows options for either a bra or topless.

The girls were a pretty good selection considering the early days of the bar. But they were dancing an extremely long dance stint of 9 songs. Obviously the bar is hoping for a Happy style audience with watchers rather than those wanting the company of a girl. The trouble is of course, that not many bars can command the quality of Happy, and this bar is not yet one of those select few.

The dancing girls weren't being the slightest bit friendly in terms of seeking out lady drinks and the like.

The middle of the bar has the now inevitable Jacuzzi with 2 girls at a time soaping themselves down. There are stools surrounding the action.

The back stage is quite elaborate with a raised platform and maybe a small rotating platform. The stage was occupied by 2 girls performing a more energetic dance than the standard gogo fare.

The service staff were also wearing smart uniforms, perhaps Air Port Club have set a new trend in motion.

It is early days and the bar wasn't working too well on my visit. Customers were only staying for a single drink. I rather think the dancers uniform will soon be dispensed with as, whatever people claim, less clothes is best. No reason why uniforms for service staff shouldn't continue though.

And if the bar does take off though there is an issue with the layout. There is not really enough space to have stools down the side of the main stage as well as it being a major thoroughfare to he back stages of the bar. There's likely to be all sorts of bumping and barging, surely not a good idea for somewhere where people are likely to be a little drunk after a few beers.

  Review January 2012: Sardines A-GoGo

The connections of this bar must be well happy. It was pretty near full and yet there were hardly any girls. There must have been about 4 guys for every girl.

The bar is quite small with a narrow central stage nestling between two sides of bench seating. There are also a few stage stools down one side.

There were 5 girls dancing and just 3 hostessing whilst waiting to dance. There were a couple of very attractive girls amongst them and the whole crew would qualify for a fair few barfines each month. Most girls were topless and the rest were wearing bikinis. Thankfully no coyotes.

But it was amazing that there was a steady stream of customers coming in to jammed into the few available bench seats by the bar ushers. To be fair though there was an equally rapid stream of customers departing after one drink.

I assume the bar has somehow tapped into the market of the multitude of passers by who are not really into gogos, but would like a quick look see.

The drinks prices are similar to sister bars Tiger/Shark/Fahrenheit but the draft beer is 10 Baht more expensive at 80 Baht (70 Baht in happy hour).

  News from Ishi January 2012: Opening Day

  Note from Dick Farang, November 2014: Friendship

In Friendship Supermarket on Pattaya tai (the big one with the car park), not precisely a mongering venue, I saw a short, slightly overweight girl whose outfit was skimpier that that of the average coyote.

She said her name was Raat, that she was 28 years old and had worked at Living Dolls One on Walking Street. She even gave me her phone number; her name she spelt as Rat.

The security people of Friendship Supermarket seemed very interested in this strange bird. To my personal taste she had too many tattoos and piercings.

  Review from Dave, September 2014: Lively

I popped into Living Dolls one on Tuesday night, it was very lively.

Half the girls were Coyote Dancers but their shorts are very small, some are cut away to show most of their bum.

The showgirls are very attractive and come on every half an hour so you get frequent nudity.

A nice place to have a beer.

  Review October 2011: Body Paint

New Living Dolls is a long running and successful GoGo, that in style and popularity, sits a notch just below the Happy group GoGos.

It is farang run and is therefore aware that the best customers are repeat customers. The drinks & barfine prices are reasonable and the bar is well run ensuring that there are no worries about hassles and other silly tricks that some other bars get up to.

There are enough girls in the bar to have about 10 girls on stage at any one time. The slow procession of GoGo dancing is punctuated by frequent shows. The shows aren't choreographed, just girls making a bit more of an effort than the usual dancers, with a few variations such as body painting.

In terms of interaction with the girls, the bar is similar to the Happy group. Customers won't get asked unless they signal their interest to a girl. Then the girls are more than willing to oblige in partaking in a lady drink or more.

The bar was doing a good trade without being particularly full. Perhaps better than most given the low season visit.

  Review August 2010: Business as Usual

The bar seems to be marking time nicely perhaps to be ready for a good high season when the perennial visitors will flock back.

The basics of plenty of attractive girls and an efficient staff, along with friendly managers should hold them in good stead.

The drinks prices seem to be creeping up though, but there's a good happy hour and the cheap draft beer is retained for the whole evening.

My main low season gripe is that the show is a bit insipid, especially compared with the 'good old days' a couple of years ago.

But on the whole the bar is pretty much business as usual.

  Review April 2010: Better than Ever

Thanks also to Pattaya Ghost

I stopped by at a prime time on a weekday evening and the bar seemed better than ever. I seated my self down on the comfortable bench seating, and before I knew it, a beautiful showgirl was bouncing on my lap. Actually I've know her for a long time so it was hardly an accident.

Whilst I was enjoying myself immensely, I rather think that my good fortune was not exactly perfect for the bar. The reason I say its better than ever, is that it is not quite so jam packed as it was a year ago. Then I would have had to put up with a stool and would have had little chance of finding an unoccupied girl free to lavish such considerate care.

The bar is still doing well though, with a good amount of customers and plenty of girls.

The shows have taken a bit of a strange twist. The popular full-on lesbian shows have been dropped. Replacements seem to be mostly fully clothed affairs. Even more bizarrely, the girls were taking off their clothes just as soon as they de-staged, returning to rejoin their drinking partners in the more traditional gogo attire of very little.

I picked up a little bit of gossip there too. Apparently the managers have been trying to keep a log of girls and their monthlies. Whilst being entirely sympathetic with the umbrage taken by the girls, one has to wonder if perhaps days off weren't being sneaked in a little too often.

Anyway enough of the tittle tattle, there were plenty of other more sensual pleasures awaiting to be enjoyed by the obliging girls.

  Review October 2009: Not So New

The bar has had a little time to settle down after a change of management so time for a quick review.

There have been a few changes to the bar. The unused Jacuzzi has been removed in favour of a small dancing podium. The seats have been reupholstered but in essence the bar looks more or less the same as before.

I also heard that the new owners has dropped the new prefix and refer to the bar as Living Dolls One.

There were the usual extensive team of gogo dancers with about 12 on stage at any one time for a dance roster of 6 songs. There is also a team of showgirls who take to the stage for various lesbian antics and the like. There are plenty of attractive girls on show.

Unsurprisingly the new management have made few changes to the operation of the bar. If anything the bar has improved for me, as a couple of girls bounded over for a bit of good taking care.

I am anticipating a return visit to the bar more than I have for a long time.

  News July 2009: Dolled Off

The bar has been sold and the new owners George and Simon will be at the helm from the 1st August 2009.

  Review from Mike of stayinginthailand.com, February 2013: Not Going Back

The prices are still absurd here; 145 for the cheapest bottle of beer and no draft.

Other than the servers, I was getting the cold shoulder from most of the girls. The topless girls on stage weren't great and I found out that their ST bar fine is 700 and their LT bar fine is 1000. None of them were worth that and the 1,000-2,000 for their fee.

There were a few attractive girls in there who had their tops on and they called themselves Coyote girls on this particular night, with a 1,500 baht bar fine. They were pretty, but not enough to justify that high of a bar fine; and presumably a ridiculous ST/LT rate.

In my opinion this place needs to make an adjustment if they want to have any regular clientele.

  Review from Pattaya-Addicts May 2010: Soft Soapy

They had some soapy show going on the stage but the girls kept their pants on, so it didn't do that much for me to be honest.

In the past Showcase had some attractive show girls, so this helps to justify high drink prices, but none of the girls on stage at the time I was there were particularly outstanding.

  Review from Pattaya Secrets December 2009: Some Beauties

Living Dolls Showcase had some beauties both on show and walking around, no mystery why there are so many bums on seats in that place, some stunners but not half as many as there were in Happy a Go-Go.

  Review March 2009: Friendly Reception

I visited the bar at a prime time of about 11pm. The bar was enjoying a sizeable crowd who seemed to be enjoying the shows.

The format was for a few show numbers on the central stage, and then a few numbers of when all the gogo dancers would take the stage. The stints were not too long which is always good in my opinion.

I have a feeling that the bar doesn't really target hardened Pattaya gogo fans though. The shows are choreographed but not outrageously sexy. In the few numbers I saw the girls were a bit shy and kept their knickers on throughout. Good looking girls, but their reputation of being not so keen to go with customers diminishes the attraction somewhat.

The gogo dancers were average (which of course is pretty good in Walking Street). Again they were a bit shy, with only a couple of the dozen on stage, taking their tops off.

The bar seemed to excel in meeting and greeting, lots of happy long lost friends seem to be re-uniting with girls and staff from previous visits. My service girl was well friendly too.

I can't say I was impressed by the dancing girls hunting lady drinks in twos though. It always telegraphs to me a money grabbing attitude rather than the desire for a one to one hook up.

I would suggest that this is one of the better bars in Pattaya for farang couples. They can enjoy the friendly reception along with the cabaret style show without it being too outrageous.

As a rather hardened pleasure seeker though, I found the entertainment to be marginally sexy, and the drinks prices way too expensive at 135 Baht for a bottled beer.

  Review from Pattaya Ghost, June 2008: Ridiculously Priced

There were plenty of silicone-enhanced showgirls still left after 1 am, although they seemed content to play among themselves, leaving the handful of customer in the bar to sip as slowly as possible on the ridiculously priced 150-baht shorts.

Shows or not, LDS has to be the biggest clip joint in Pattaya. Even Angelwitch, with shows and an environment five times better than Showcase, prices their drinks at 145 baht. Remind me not ever to go back there.

  Review by polleke, Nov 2007: Beautiful Girls

Visited the bar several times this week and really loved it.

There is a central stage crowded by more than average looking girls. They have some shows but they can't compete with the ones in Angelwitch.

There was one girl though that was an outstanding dancer. However there are so many lovely dancing girls, my eyes were caught by a gorgeous hostess (barfine 600 Baht, 2000 LT)

Note: there are a couple of very beautiful girls, that have big sponsors. I was told they ask 10,000 bath ST ( discount when they like you). They actually get barfined 3-4 times a week. Certainly not by me.

  Review, January 2013: Conformity

I stopped by at peak time in peak season.

The bar was nicely decorated, but the Mandarin theme is entirely incidental. The more memorable 'theme' is that it is more or less exactly the same as the sister bars of Shark, Tiger, Fahrenheit and Lighthouse.

There were quite a few dancers, maybe 8 or 10 on the central stage. It was an unimpressive line up, almost entirely filled with coyote dancers. They have though reduced the coyote uniform down to tiny shorts and a solid bra. (Why can't agency girls dance in bikinis anyway?).

Not much to write home about but things did look up after a change of dance team. The replacement team were nearly all gogo dancers in bikinis and less. A far more attractive bunch or girls.

There were 2 dance teams in the bar, switching after an overly long set. I don't know why the teams were split, one coyote, one gogo. Surely it would have been better to mix them up a bit and ensure that there was a little nudity at all times.

The Mamasang was Ms Tina Turner who was doing her usual firm but fair job. She was being particularly  firm with a customer, ensuring that he knew there was to be absolutely no negotiation down from the mandatory 2000 ST/ 3000 LT dictate. Her pencil was jabbed into her notepad several times to affirm that this is what her rule book demanded.

Overall it is another totally generic bar in the successful family. It has very little individuality or character, and will live or die almost entirely according to the quality of the girls on stage.

  Comment from Ishi, October 2012: Opening Night

Everything is almost the same as other Shark Group GoGos. However the dancers were rather over-dressed.

I counted nearly 30 dancers on the stage in the 2 teams. I saw no bottomless dancers, and just a couple of topless dancers.

  Review from Mike of stayinginthailand.com, April 2013: Good Early Night Warm-up

For once the people outside of a GoGo roped me in with a drink special. They were handing out 2 for 1 coupons, so I gave it a shot. The drink special was legitimate and I was given two draft beers for the price of 1 at 65 baht, which is the best deal on Walking Street. They might be having a little bit of trouble bringing in customers on an off-peak season weekday; its location is quite competitive. I was one of the only customers there while more than 30 girls were working. This is certainly not a complaint; I love it when the place is empty and I have my pick. The lineup of coyote girls was very average but there were a few cute girls, and with no other customers there it was easy enough to get their attention.

There were about 10 girls dancing on the stage at a time with the rest of the girls falling asleep scattered around the chairs and waiting for their turn to dance. It was a really slow night in there! After being there for 45 minutes and with a few guys now in attendance, they brought out the show girls. The 5 busty show girls did get nude and did perform. I know this place has a reputation for having ridiculous bar fines and I believe it's only these show girls who demand the very high rates. In my opinion they weren't as hot as other agency girls who command those types of prices. But they gave a good show none the less.

I had a really good time having drinks with two of the coyote girls. I was quoted 2,000 baht bar fine prior to midnight, but I was also told that it would be 1,000 baht after midnight. 2,000/3,000 ST/LT Obviously not worth it before midnight and still not a bargain after midnight, but if you get one of the cuter coyote girls there it's worth it. With the drink specials and the high girls to guys' ratio, you could have a really good time here for next to nothing as long as you don't bar fine.

  Review December 2011: Gone to Moon Dust

I stopped by at prime time during the week before Christmas. The welcome girl sounded a little desperate calling out the line: draft beer only 65 baht.

Anyway I stepped inside expecting to be swooped upon by hoards of tequila hunting agency models, but something was strangely awry...there weren't any.

There were about four customers totally unhassled by anyone. There was a perfectly friendly service girl who wanted immediate payment for my drink, but pointed out that I could have a bin if I wanted.

On stage were a handful of unimpressive GoGo dancers in complicated bikinis that were almost one piece costumes, and weren't really very sexy at all.

After a few songs, there was a change of entertainment when a couple of cabaret style showgirls took to the stage. But as they didn't quite tick enough boxes of being young, pretty and female I took my leave.

So there you have it, a trip to the moon without being hassled in any way whatsoever; and experiencing only a brief interaction with a pleasant service girl; and enjoying a decent cheap beer. Better than I ever thought possible. But I suspect that this is not the way it should be, and something is up at Moon Club.

  Review from pattaya-addicts.com September 2011: Tequila Girl Hassle

Beware of the unwelcome hassle from tequila girls hunting in pairs. They are way too aggressive in their demands to be bought an expensive lady drink.

  Review July 2011: A Wholesome GoGo

First a couple of corrections from the previous comments:

  1. There IS draft beer. San Miguel Light, tall glass, for 65 baht. First time I've seen SML on tap. Mixed house drinks were 130.
  2. You CAN run a checkbin. I did, at least. Perhaps it depends on circumstances as yet unidentified.

My impression of Moon Club was, at once, extremely favorable yet such that I'm certain that I will never go back, or at least not more than 1 more time.

The club is extremely well done out. Curvy panels of LED lighting run across the ceilings and down the walls. Most of the de'cor is white, but not quite all done yet. A podium in the corner was still missing paint and the cocktail tables are not fully functional yet (missing lights). Still a work in progress.

It is, however, so small you have to go outside to change your mind. It seats, comfortably at least, about 25 --- girls and customers total. Very busy in its early days, I saw just as many people walk in, sit down and then get up and leave before being served because of the overcrowding. Staff were pulling up stools in the aisles in front of the bench seating blocking the view of those behind. Left with no table, however, the seats were quickly vacated as customers simply left.

The music system, on the other hand, is terrific and the DJ very talented. It's loud, but not in the way that hurts your ears. You can talk with the girl sitting next to you, but not much further away. The music is all very danceable pop --- Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Pussycat Girls, etc. -- and mixed well. Very enjoyable if that's your taste in tunes.

The staff seemed mostly comprised of contract girls --- some of whom have worked for, in order, Sapphire Club, What's Up, Insomnia Club, and Club Blu --- they seems to work 10 days at any one place.

Additional, surgically enhanced showgirls with pasties livened up the looks. Tall, but no ladyboys that I could spot.

The bar is very, very much aimed at the Asian tourist and couples. The lack of nudity, (half-hearted) choreography and Angelwitch show tunes makes it very clear this bar is for the casual tourist on holiday. For that, you cannot fault the owner who, of course, has been running Rocket Club upstairs, aimed at the same market. With a door two steps off of Walking Street, it's not only the expected move, but the smart one, both from a business and police standpoint.

So, while the look, sound and (at least for now) talent are all very positive, its tiny size and emphasis on the wholesome side of go-go bars will mean it will be worth at most one follow-up visit.

  Review from Pattaya forums, July 2011: Expensive Show Bar

The bar has opened with very attractive agency coyote dancers. There are also slightly more appropriately dressed show girls that are a bit shy and hide their bits behind pasties.

The bars seems to be modelling itself more as a no take away show bar rather than most bars and have set extremely high barfines to maintain a full cast of dancers.

The show has yet to impress.

There's talk also of lady boys but this is unconfirmed.

Drinks prices are suitably high with no draft, 130-135 baht bottled beers, 120 baht soft drinks and 150 baht lady drinks. Customers have to settle the bill as soon as they receive a drink.

The decor seems to have impressed. It has a the theme of spaceships and is mostly white. the girls are dressed in costumes alluding to space suits.

Presumably the bar is targetting tourist couples rather than western guys.

  Review from Dick Farang, September 2014: A New Moon

Surprise, surprise: Moonlight A-GoGo (formerly Relaxxx, Sin City, etc.) on Soi 16 (Soi Arab) has reopened.

I did not see many changes apart from the two karaoke rooms with a door and a window each, right of the gents.

The owner, who was there, is a young, tall and very slim Thai lady, who looks like a typical Bangkok hi-so, probably more money than brains.

The dancers were clad in double tops, double bottoms and stilettos and some of them were also wearing white fishnet stay-up stockings.

Among others they played a disco version of If you're going to San Francisco.

I have never been to a place where the mamasans, waitresses and dancers have been so relentlessly preying on me for lady drinks. It was not funny anymore, even for a hardened expat-punter with nerves of steel.

With the exception of one (the only one that was not pushy) all dancers were ugly and/or fat.

One of the mamasans was 28 years old, slim and short and way better looking than the girls on stage.

In the end I was so pissed off that I paid the exact amount of the bill, no tip.

Draught beer 55 baht, bottled Heineken 130 baht.

At Naughty Girls on Soi Diamond I saw 10-15 dancers, most of them overdressed and overweight and some of them hiding in corners.

Two of them went topless and two others were wearing a transparent skirt without pants.

The waitresses were friendly however.

For most of the time I was the only customer.

Bottled Heineken 125 baht.

  Review January 2012: Low Key

This GoGo must be the most low key in walking Street. It hardly ever gets a mention on the forums.

It's certainly not a high energy bar, nor is it hand's on, it hasn't got the prettiest girls in town, nor has it a show, there's no sign of a Jacuzzi, no play area, and there's certainly nothing to complain about with the drink's prices. In short there's little to say about the bar.

It has a traditional centre stage, with girls in traditional gogo attire, doing the traditional Isaan shuffle.

At least there's usually a few decent looking girls in attendance.

Not bad, not good, not naughty, just misunderstood.

  Review January 2011: Sanctuary

If life is getting a little hectic at Walking Street's high energy GoGos, and you fancy a moment of quiet reflection then Naughty Girls is the place to go.

You can enjoy a relaxing beer in your own company, secure in the knowledge that nobody will do anything that could possibly impinge on your personal space.

And there is an attractive setting for your quiet contemplation. The venue features modern, nicely styled decor and there are several attractive dancers on the central stage. The girls provide a pleasant background, but thankfully they never attempt to move into your foreground, lest they disturb your peace.

So having supped your beer, you can emerge from the venue, relaxed and composed, ready to head back into the high energy fun of Pattaya nightlife.

  Review July 2010: Moderate

Naughty Girls continues its very traditional approach to GoGo.

The bar has a narrow central stage featuring maybe be 10 girls dancing at a time. They do a very slow rotation of one girl per song making for a way too long 10 song dance session. There are generally some attractive girls and they dance either topless or bikini clad.

There is comfortable bench seating around 3 sides of the square bar.

There is a cheap draft beer at 55 Baht.

The bars main drawback is that it does not seem to have a found a good way to hook the girls up with customers.

Perhaps they seek to emulate Super Girls next door, where the girls don't make the first move and wait for their number to be called by a customer. Most customers in Super Girls are happy to bide their time over a few beers whilst making their choice. But Naughty does not quite attract the top notch level of girls required to make this mode of operation work. Naughty ends up with a very moderate mix of an uninspired show and not very interactive girls.

  Review February 2010: Symmetry

There's a certain symmetry to Soi Diamond, with the two centre bars on either side of the beer bar isle being somewhat bereft of ideas. (And often, customers)

Naughty Girls is not too far off the mark. It is an attractive bar with a central stage. There is comfortable bench seating around the sides of the bar. There are table dancing positions set amongst this seating, but it is rarely used these days.

On my last couple of visits there have been some very attractive dancers on show too.

There's a 55 Baht draft beer and other drink prices are in line with Pattaya norms.

The flaws that I see are that the girls dance a very long stint, which is usually a cue to depart for anyone waiting for a particular girl.

Secondly in common with neighbours, The Sea and New Star, the bar seems to think that the most attractive girls should be given the onerous job of sitting by the door. If it were my bar, I would assign them the job of sitting with customers instead. Better to get at least a few customers with as smile on their face, rather than concentrating on getting people into the bar only to leave them lonely and bored.

  Review June 2009: Middling

Now a very traditional gogo with not really much going on except the stage full of girls. The bar still seems to err by having too many girls dancing and not really enough on hostess duty. But better ratios then about a year ago.

There are about 10 girls on stage and most are bikini clad with a few topless. Probably about average for Pattaya but that means there are several that are attractive. The dance roster is too long and if your girls says I go dance, then the best reply is: ok I go check bin.

From what I have seen recently the bar is struggling for customers. I've not really helped out much by staying for a second drink, I have been ignored, double teamed and targeted by the bar oldie.

The draft beer is reasonably priced.

The bar is not a million miles away from getting it right but at the moment is does not seem a roaring success.

  Review Jan 2009: Naughtier and Better

Things seem to have improved at Naughty Girls. The bars has recently abandoned its policy of making all available girls dance and there are now a few that available for a chat.

Also a general air of happier girls may also have led to a few more of them taking their tops off for dancing. The unrevealing black boob tube that they used to wear has mostly been left in the changing room where it belongs, and small standard bikinis are now the norm.

I am told that the lady drinks are now more tightly controlled and customers are no longer stung for the expensive cocktail. It is hard to check this out though as I make such a point of ordering a standard lady drink that I am unlikely to get the girls trying it on.

In fact I was very well looked after by a friendly hands on dancer and would have been tempted to stay longer if it wasn't for the still overly long dance roster of about 7 songs.

 News May 2012: Afternoon Closing

The bar has ended afternoon opening and now opens at 8pm. The demise of teh afternoon shift is put down to a lack of customers.

Lady drinks have increased to 120 Baht.

 Review May 2012: Two Star

As always I have mixed success at the bar but it was quite a hit on my last visit.

Perhaps the inconsistency is down top the wide range of girls working there. They range from the young and very attractive to girls best described as stalwarts. And they seem to have very different views on what they want or expect from the bar. Some are picky, some are hasslesome, and some are good company.

But on the whole the bar is run in a way that enables a good time, even if it doesn't quite guarantee it.

The girls don't spend very long dancing and there are few on stage at anyone time. For a hands on style of bar this is very much the way to go.

The drinks are cheap, so there is nothing is lost if it doesn't pan out on a particular visit. Just try again next time.

  Review January 2012: Playing the Odds

The small bar has a few old stagers that have been hanging around for ages. But otherwise the bar has a rapid turnover amongst the younger dancers.

So every time I go there is more a less a new dancing cast on display. The bar is pretty good for dancing with short dance rosters and often more attractive dancers than you would expect in a small bar.

In terms of interaction it is very hit or miss. It just depends on the current crops of girls whether they are interested in socialising or not.

It is one of those bars where the cheap draft is important, as it makes it worthwhile for just a look see. If the dancing team is a bit offish then nothing lost, but if it is a good day it can be fun to stay for a few.

A totally inconsistent bar, but the odds of a good time are good enough to make it worthwhile to at least take a look.

  Review February 2011: Afternoon Fun

The afternoon GoGo scene seems to be in something of decline ate the moment with some pretty disappointing customer/girls counts, particularly in Sois 13.

But New Star is one of the better bets for afternoon fun. It usually has a fair few girls with some of them being decent looking. The bar works well for the afternoon audience with minimal numbers set to dancing whilst the majority are assigned to customer care duties. The dance roster is proportionally short too.

In fact the bar seems better in the afternoon than at night. In the evening it can take on a harder edge. It particularly targets customers that the touts can aggressively snag on the way to Super Girls. Then all the best girls in the bar seem attached to the entrance to form part of this snagging team.

No such nonsense in the day time and the bar provides a good hangout for the afternoon trade. Not so sure about the short time rates though. The charges are well uncompetitive. But a good place for a beer or two.

  Review July 2010: Knowing the Ropes

The bar can be a bit of a mixed bag but there is always a chance of hands on fun with a pretty girl.

The bar has a fair few girls for a small bar but there is usually quite a range with some well pretty and some well past it.

There are usually just 3 or 4 dancing girls in the full range of bikini to none. The star turns of the team does a play stage stint at the front of the bar with thwack sticks and the like.

As there are few girls dancing at any one time this leaves a good amount pf girls available for hands on customer care.

There's a cheap 55 Baht draft and lady drinks are ok at 110 Baht.

All seems pretty good in terms of the way the bar operates, but there are a few things more that customers need to know.

Firstly the pretty girls are anchored to the seats around the front door. They are available for hostessing, its just that when they haven't got a customer, they have to sit near the door ready to impress customers who poke their head inside for a look see.

The trick is just to select a seat near the front door so that you are close enough to take a look, and be within smile/signal range to ask a girl over. Sitting at the back of the bar tends to result in the old stagers having first dibs.

The second thing customers need to know is that the girls will prey ruthlessly on any newbies they detect. They can swarm around in seconds.

And one last thing to note is that the bar runs 2 shifts changing at 8pm. Both shifts can have some pretty girls, making the bar well above average for daytime fun. Most other bars seem to have more of a 'second' team on the daytime shift.

  Review by Ishi Jan 2010: Merged Stage

The smallest foam Jacuzzi in Pattaya is no longer used. It's a part of the dance stage now.

The problem is that the bar runs out of water. It happens often, there's no water in the toilet or in the kitchen. I'll never order Draught Beer again!

  Reader review Dec 2009: Worth a visit

This bar is quite small but it's worth a visit.

Some of the girls are very beautiful, most of them in topless and with very pretty breasts.

The staff are friendly and drinks are not too expensive.

  Review from Dick Farang, October 2014: A one gin palace

Palace A-Go-Go has opened on Walking Street, left of Sweetheart's A-GoGo (looking from the street).

Everything inside has a cheap look, from the stages to the lighting, to the DJ booth, to the toilets.

There are two rather broad, low central stages with a total of sixteen about two metres high chrome poles, not fixed to the ceiling.

Against the walls is mostly bench seating, but on the right-hand side are also some high tables and stools.

On the positive side: the lighting is bright enough.

The laminated drink menus are very similar to those at Shark, the defunct Tiger, Fahrenheit, Lighthouse, Mandarin Walking Street and Crazy House.

The dancers were uninteresting and average at best. They were clad in black coyote outfits. There were four or five of them on each stage and they were dancing very long dance stints. During the shift changes there were eight to ten on each stage for the duration of one song.

There were also some girls in bikinis (one in red, one in white and one in blue) hanging around, but it was not clear what their role was.

Not the slightest nudity.

The waitresses were friendly enough.

I saw a fat mamasan and a Thai boy manager.

As at many gogos the music was way too loud.

Around midnight there were only a couple of customers and this notwithstanding the fact this gogo opened just two days before.

Not a place to stay for more than one drink.

Draught beer 80 baht, bottled Heineken 140 baht, lady drinks 150 baht.

  News from Ishi, October 2014: Open

  Review from Dick Farang, October 2014: Third rate

Pe Pe Club on Soi Arab (Soi 16) has indeed reopened.

Although there were no other customers (around midnight) there was a disgusting stench of cigarette smoke.

As usually the music was way too loud.

There were three dancing teams of three third-rate freelancers each.

When off stage these fuglies went into hiding, probably happy earning 400 (bikini dancers) or 500 (topless dancers) baht per night.

Perhaps they come out of hiding when, in the early morning, the drunken sailors arrive.

Apart from one waitress (Hoy), there were several Thai boys and ladyboys hanging around.

On Saturday 25th October 2014 an Anniversary is celebrated.

Bottled Heineken still 140 baht.

  Review from Dick Farang, September 2014: Transparent camisoles

Pe Pe on Soi 16 (Soi Arab) seems to be struggling to survive. I heard that it is for sale for 3 million baht, but that there are no takers. They have waited way too long to get rid of the money swallowing models and coyotes. Also the location and the fact that the other gogos in the same complex have closed will not help.

And also the waiters and/or security men hanging around the stage will not make all punters feel comfortable. The only remaining waitress, Hoy, who has a long record of working at gogos such as Naughty Girls and the defunct Tiger, has to double as a de facto mamasan.

For those interested: there is a new cleaner, the ladyboy who used to work upstairs at the defunct Xzone. Also the cashier appears to be a ladyboy.

Beware of bill padding and barfines doing runners.

At my last visit I saw only average or worse dancers in all shapes and sizes, three or four of them on stage, some topless, some not, some with totally un-matching bolt-ons, some with transparent camisoles and T-shirts (a new trend ?).

  Review from Dick Farang, July 2014: Models and Freelancers

The smallish Pe Pe on Soi 16 (Soi Arab) was very quiet (as to the number of customers), but very loud as usual.

I saw three models clad in black on stage, two of them silicone enhanced, who towards the end of their act took of their oversized tops.

After the models' stint, there were four topless dancers at a time on stage, also in black. I did not see full nudity.

I was told the models are paid 12,000 baht for 10 days, but have to make 50 lady drinks for free.

I also heard the topless dancers are freelancers who get 500 baht per night they show up, 50 baht for a lady drink and 100 baht for a barfine.

Barfines for models 1,500 baht, barfines for dancers 700 baht.

Bottled Heineken 140 baht, lady drinks 150 baht.

  Review from Sedrik, July 2013: Ladies are a lot of fun

A nice place but it was very quiet for my midnight visit.

The bar has a nice dancing roster. There were both topless and a few coyote dancers.

The ladies drink a lot, and so are a lot of fun in the bar.

The mamasan hassled a little bit, but that's ok.

  Review from Nikko, July 2014: The Mint with a Stage in the Middle

Never been my preferred A-GoGo bar but since they changed the design it become a lot more like everything else in Pattaya.

3 girls were topless from the bikini girls staff. Just 1 month ago all were topless, but this time they seemed to show only on demand (against some cash of course)

A group of farang who converted at least 3000 baht in 20 baht bills were doing a lot of noise, all the girls were screaming at them.

One of them started pole dancing, beers fall on the second stage, that was quite fun, thanks them to save me from the morosity.

The first stage is boring with 4 girls slowly moving (can't call that dancing). The music was the worse, sounding like renovation tools in a bathroom, noisy to say the last, impossible to talk.

Some girls are in the business for long time and not surprising the ones with the best shapes were 30+, all the young girls were overdressed and overweight.

They raised the draft beer from 59 to 79, water and soda 110+, lady drinks 150.

  Review from Dave, April 2014: The Mint with a Boring Bit in the Middle

Peppermint now has Coyote Dancers,

I went in there last week and there were 30-40 new girls but 15 of them were coyote dancers.

At 10.30 pm they all got up on stage and danced for 25 minutes. They were very attractive, but very overdressed, and it was very boring.

  News from Ishi, November2013: The Mint with a Stage in the Middle

Peppermint closed for a week for re-modelling and re-opened on 9th November.

There are now 2 stages. One is a rectangular (sub) stage with 5 poles (dancers and coyotes) near entrance. The other is a square (center) stage with 8 poles (dancers and coyotes) center of the bar. 2 dancers move from center stage to sub stage per song.

The famous midnight on stage (all dancers, coyotes and hostess entering on the stage at midnight for one song) finished on 30th October.

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

There was a time when Peppermint seemed like it was past its prime, but this weekend Peppermint could have given any GoGo a run for its money in terms of overall appeal.

As always the drink prices are about as low as you'll find and the bar fines were 600 baht for any girl there.

The girls were downright special! There were a lot of very attractive girls; more than I ever expected there. Baccara may have the best two or three looking girls of the group, but after that Peppermint's lineup is right there. One girl I spoke with said she specifically requested not to work in Bacarra which I found to be interesting.

Since there are so many fewer customers and high rollers to compete with in Peppermint compared to Baccara, I find it to be much easier to operate there.

The setup is ideal if you really love to watch the girls dance since they're featured on a main stage against a wall, like a rock band would be. This compared to the typical GoGo where the main stage is in the center of a club where the angles are hit and miss.

They have some talented pole dancers there if you're into that. The girls were very friendly and responsive; but only if you wanted them to be.

All things considered this is one of my favorite places...again!

  Review January 2011: Still Pepped Up

Not much changes at Peppermint. They have a formula and stick to it. It has cheap beer and reasonable lady drinks but the takeaway prices are very top end. But within this ranges it offers something for everyone, and hence maintains a perpetual busy state.

Now there are 5 bars in the chain (Peppermint, Happy, Baccara, Cavern and Beach Club), it is always tempting to speculate about how they are running off against each other. On my last couple of visits I think it is clear that the top notch girls have moved on to Baccara, but there are still plenty of girls at Peppermint to please most customers. If anything, the bar in the chain that has suffered most from the ascendancy of Baccara is Happy. This was pretty much a pick a number and go bar, but now the best girls are gone, it is a little lacking.

Peppermint however has always had a bit more in the way of interaction between girls and customers, and the lively atmosphere has persisted better.

Anyway for all intents and purposes the bar is the same successful GoGo bar that it has been for years.

  Review April 2009: Playaway

The bar targets Asians and East Europeans with a mix of gogo and unerotic shows with darts and whistles etc.

There are no welcome signs suggesting prices as no doubt there is a cover charge including first drink for some whilst farangs breeze in unmolested for the normal pay as you go price structure. The draft beer was reasonable at 65 Baht.

The bar is narrow with central stages, two dancing stages and a Jacuzzi. The naked girl was soaping herself throughout and the dancers were bikini clad.

The girls were friendly enough and would pop over to inquire of your birthplace. But they weren't hasslesome if you preferred to be left alone.

In fact a perfectly decent sort of small bar with many of the usual gogo entertainments.

There was one tiny little almost insignificant problem though...the girls were well below Walking Street average.

  Review Sept 2008: Pleasantly Surprised

I was rather suspecting a bar that was a bit more hardened to fleecing the bells and whistles crowd but the bar was not such a lost cause.

The steep steps up to the first floor bar wouldn't survive health and safety rules in Farangland. They are pretty unattractive as aesthetically too.

But inside the bar is bright and attractive along similar lines to Airport below.

There are 3 stages, 1 is for gogo, the other alternates between gogo and bells and whistles shows for the tourists. In the centre is a Jacuzzi complete with a a suitably soapy girl. There are no seats near, so no chance of any hands on fun.

All drinks prices are reasonable and the standard for the Nui's group bars. So no premium to watch a show you didn't want to see in the first place.

The gogo girls were a little reluctant to take their tops off and there are none of the the cuties that are reserved for downstairs duty at Airport Club.

I spoke to a couple of the dancing girls and it made for a very pleasant couple of drinks. They were not pushy and were charming hostesses with plenty of tales from a longish gogo careers.

The service was also good.

  Review from Dick Farang, August 2014: Eyes right

I entered Private Dancer on Soi 15 only because I felt thirsty and it was all but crowded.

At the left-hand side is the main stage with mostly overdressed and chubby dancers; I saw three topless ones and one full frontal nude.

At the right-hand side (where Fun Room and Eazy Room used to be) are a mattress with girls in white bikinis and a jacuzzi that are not visible for most customers.

The (big) bras of the dancers have front fasteners and many girls are happy to show the contents for a 20-baht note. Some were also wearing camisoles.

Barfines 600-800 baht, 300 baht from 1.30 a.m. on.

Bottled Heineken 125 baht.

  Review, December 2012: Ticking Over

I visited on a weekday evening on the week before Christmas.

The bar was ticking over nicely but wasn't very crowded, especially as Christmas draws near. There were girls on the play/Jacuzzi features on the right as your walk in but they had a look of anticipation hoping that I would be the first person to sit at that side of the bar. But no, I went into sheep mode and joined the small flock of guys seated in the main stage area.

There were half dozen dancers on stage doing there usual thing, looking about average (average is not bad in Pattaya).

I ordered my drink from the reasonably priced menu and sat back to survey the offerings.

There were 3 guys enjoying some tender loving care courtesy of a girl on their lap. So all seemed well.

However the crew of dancers was rather stretched to cover all the dancing positions and there weren't any spare girls to look after any newcomers.

Surely its one of the issues that must be sorted out in a bar looking to specialise in more one to one forms of entertainment. If a bar opts to hire top notch girls or provide a show, then a goodly number of customers are happy just to oggle, and the ratio of girls to guys can be quite low. If a bar opts to hire more homely girls providing a more personal service then the ratio of girls to guys simply has to be a lot higher.

Perhaps Private Dancer could have abandoned the unwatched Jacuzzi show and reallocated the girls to hostessing duties. But as it was, I did not really fancy staying to watch other guys having fun, so one drink was enough. It wasn't just me, there were several other customers who looked in need of a little company, and who soon departed once it looked like this wouldn't happen.

But it did look like a bar where if there had been a few more girls available, I would have been saying it was up there with Baby Dolls and Windmill.

  News from Private Dancer, September 2012: Introducing Private Dancer

  Review from Dick Farang, November 2014: Re-GoGoed

On Walking Street Rhino has reopened as a gogo.

Not much has changed, apart from the first stage which consists of some ugly white cubes now.

Along the left-hand wall the seating is still barstools and the toilets are still as primitive as before.

The Jacuzzi at the rear right was out of order.

There were about forty dancers on stilettos, all of them clad in black, most of them in coyote outfits, but also some in bikinis, some with big tops and some in strings.

Some were also wearing stockings with suspenders, some stay-up stockings and some transparent camisoles.

It was very dark inside and there was a very good reason for it as the average quality of the girls was very low.

About four of them were on each stage at any time and towards the end of their dance stint the bikini dancers took off their bras.

A young spinner (the only one) had put some pasties on her nipples ... and lost them.

I saw two huge 40-50 years old grannies with ridiculous bolt-ons and cellulite buttocks. There were a lot more silicone racks.

There were both waiters and waitresses.

The music was blaring.

Bottled Heineken 120 baht.

Rocket A-GoGo upstairs on Soi Diamond seems to have taken a change of direction. The previous manager Kuhn Artit has moved on to Gamebird 2 on Soi 15. The bar has now become a bells and whistles show targeting Asians and East European couples.

The welcome staff signs for cheap drinks have vanished so presumably the drinks prices have inflated somewhat. Draft beer is 110 Baht and bottled beers are 130 Baht.

The bar seemed to have more customers than in its previous incarnation so must be doing something right.

  Review by Mr Mats Oct 2008: Rocket Play

I found a new place for me, Rocket GoGo.

Seated beside the jacuzzi I found two pretty girls and I could play with them too. Very friendly and the service staff were nice to me - an old man from Europe.

Draft bear 40 bath before 22:00 and 55 after.

  Review Sept 2008: One Fatal Flaw

There are many good things to say about the bar, particularly for a Thai run bar.

Drinks prices are good and there is a little hassle from the girls or staff. All the usual gogo entertainments are there including the almost inevitable Jacuzzi.

There seems just one thing missing, pretty girls!

Getting customers to upstairs bars is always difficult but its seems that getting the girls to climb the stairs is nigh on impossible.

  Review by Fontok, Feb 2008: Nicely Laid Out

Rocket Club A-GoGo is situated upstairs on Soi Diamond

Access: They have chopped off the last few yards of the beer bar below to make an entrance lobby. Go upstairs (usual steep thai steps). The gogo is on the first landing. If you go further up, you could find the room(s) for gogo girls that are too tired and need to take a rest...

The Bar: Nicely laid out with good bench seats round the edge and tables with chairs. About 8 girls on stages, while two girls were washing in the Jacuzzi. Appears the changing rooms must be small, so they had to wash in public!

Drink prices were sensible and sticky signs round the top of the mirrored walls with the "price list". Draught Chang was 55 Baht.

Smokers: They have realised bout the new No Smoking Ban and have converted one of the men's toilet cubicles into a Smoking Room (or so the sign on the door says).--- quick thinking that! Well done, even though I am not a smoker.

Yes, I will go back and give it another go. May not be many girls there yet, but some friendly and I am willing to follow up their approaches... I think the BF was 600 Baht, which is pretty standard these days. Did not have the time to find of what the girls wanted... Most seem fresh from the countryside, or so their dancing skills told me (I was taught about reading dance skills a long time ago from an ex-gogo girl in Bangkok).

  Review from Bob, Feb 2008: More of the Usual

Entrance is narrow staircase right before Paris a Go Go. The, what has become usual, interior for new go go's - stage for 4-6 girls, jacuzzi, comfortable seats, etc., etc., etc.

Line up was less then spectacular.

You really have to question the wisdom of someone opening a new go go on the second floor as the season winds down. Even many of the ground floor go go's can barely get more then a handful of customers these days.

Not yet worth the climb up the steps.

  Review from Dick Farang, June 2014: Your average pils

cristal alkenNui's on Walking Street has indeed been refurbished.

They have a makeshift central stage now and recycled seating and tables at both sides.

Smile Rock Girls on Soi 15 looks like a palace compared to it.

Strange enough they had Belgian beer coasters (see right). Cristal Alken is a very average Belgian pils beer, slightly better than Stella Artois.

There were two teams of dancers.

Of the dancers in white bikinis two or three could have taken my fancy in a nicer and less cramped environment. The majority however were ugly coyotes, mostly clad in white too.

The fatties of the previous incarnation of Nui's had gone.

No nudity.

One waitress and several waiters.

Bottled Heineken was 145 baht.

  Review February 2013: Re-worked

Re-opened after a few days work at the start of March 2013.

  Review August 2012: Predatory

I stopped by and the bar was totally bereft of customers. I ordered a beer anyway and was soon double teamed by a pretty girl and her mom (well old enough to be her mom anyway).

The bar is a little bit hasslesome but not in a nasty way. I have occasionally had a good time there, but the odds of this are not great. I have met some interesting girls there and it is sometimes worth a draft beer to take a look see.

The Nui's group has wide range of styles, from the mega success and attractive girls at Airport to some of the most notables dives on Walking Street, not to mention the ping pong show bar at Playgirls.

Sometimes it is this disparity of bars that spawns some of the hasslesome characteristics. The girls in Nui's are well aware of what the girls at Airport can get away with, and maybe set their sights, expectations, (and prices) unrealistically high.

On a previous visit I had a fascinating chat with a girl who also preys on Asian coach party tourists at Playgirls. On this occasion, I couldn't shake the mom, so made a rapid departure. I'll give it another go though.

  Review March 2012: Afternoon Fun

I stopped by in late afternoon in a rare foray into the sun blasted daytime hours. In desperate need of cold refreshment I thought I would brave Nui's 2.

The atmosphere was a little lacking due to the absence of customers and the girls were a mixed bunch somewhat below average. However the average is high enough to ensure a couple of decent lookers.

As is often the case, the afternoon shift make up for lack of 10's by offering a more hands on experience. And in fact the girls in this bar seem to go further than most gogos, even the hands on friendly ones.

I'm not sure whether this was exceptional treatment, or else the norm, there were no other customers to compare experiences with.

  Review October 2011: Too Small

The bar has a good location and gets a good throughput of customers. However the bar does not really have enough girls or enough space to capitalise on this.

Sitting in the bar for an hour reveals how it rapidly fills up and equally quickly empties again. There simply isn't enough good seating to provide for many customers at a time. There's just a single bench seat for 5 or 6 people. After that, there are a few seats around the front stage that has no view of the main stage and a lack lustre dancer rarely doing her best to entertain customers on the 'lonely benches'.

The girls are a mixed bunch, with usually a couple that attract attention. And if the situation allows then they can be quite hands on and fun.

It is a bar that is worth a look, but one must always be ready to make a quick getaway if the best seats are taken.

  Review September 2010: Minor Bar

The bar continues its minor bar existence. It is worth the occasional pit stop as it usually has a few attractive girls and can get quite hands on friendly when the mood is right.

There are usually 4 or 5 girls on the main stage and another 2 or 3 dancing on the tables and secondary stage.

One of these is designated as a show girl, partaking in the soapy stage antics. There are no ring side seats so this adds very little to the bar.

The dance roster is a bit too long for a small bar, so I guess if a customer is being looked after by a dancer, "I go dance" often correlates to "check bin".

As mentioned before, there are too many girls dancing on the main stage which offers a good view to only a few seats in the bar. Perhaps the bar could get a few useful tips from a psychologist.

The draft beer was nice, but one to avoid.

Happy hour draft in Sapphire is now 60 Baht.

  Review from Dave, July 2014: Half a Smile

I looked in on the Sapphire club on Monday night.

I got blanked as usual. A couple of girls gave me half a smile. I was sitting at the stage on my own whilst most of the non dancing girls were huddled in the corner by the door, eating and chatting amongst themselves.

There are a couple of stunners in there but judging by how high they stick their noses in the air, I think you need to make an appointment to look at them.

  News November 2013: Re-opened

  Review December 2011: A Remake Not  as Good as the Original

It is always exciting to see what's new when a major upgrade takes place. And indeed the newly enlarged bar makes a good visual impression. The bar has expanded into 2 next door units so maybe is about twice as big. The bar is now rectangular as opposed to the more square shape before. there is a long central-ish running lengthways down the bar. It is surrounded by Baccara style sofa seating. And most impressive of all, the stage was jam packed with dancers.

My visit started with a niggle though, the 65 Baht draft beer displayed so prominently on the welcome boards does not exist. Presumably it's on its way, but why display the signs when it isn't yet available? Having spent a good packet on the refurbishment why not invest a tiny amount more on correctly priced signs. After all the bottled beer is perfectly reasonably priced and a 75 Baht happy hour beer price would be a perfectly attractive promotion on a sign.

Sitting down to survey the bar, I started to think that the new design wasn't all that ideal. Bigger does not necessarily mean better for a GoGo bar. The distance to the stage is all important, there is something very sexual about proximity. Also greater distance can make signals of interest such as smiles, gestures and gaze that little bit harder to pick up. I felt that Sapphire has the bench seating around the sides of the bar just that little bit too far away. This is especially true on the shorter sides of the bar which have a poor viewing angle on the long thin stage. At the worst seats, one just sees the couple of  dancers at the end of the stage.

There is also a Jacuzzi at the back of the bar.  It is not located for general viewing though, so is basically entertainment for those sitting directly at the bath side. Something to try on the next visit.

And then there is the issue of coyote dancers. It seems to be that 2/3rd of the dancers are coyotes wearing shorts, bras and tops. Admittedly the shorts were about as small as they could possibly be. But I for one find coyote dancing unappealing. Firstly nudity is so much more attractive, and secondly coyote dancers are on average for more likely to be 'unavailable' due to personal choice, sponsorship, price, or just being selective. And of course their barfines are higher for no reason that I can fathom (beyond them being supplied by an agency).

It was also strange how the bar has organised the shifts. The girls were split into 3 teams and every so often the teams change. This seems a perfectly good idea, but what I couldn't understand, is why two of the teams were entirely made up of coyotes. So for the majority of the time there is no nudity on display. Wouldn't it be a better idea to distribute the gogo dancers amongst all the teams so that there are always some nude dancers on stage for those that like that sort of thing.

On the positive side, the bar has built up a very good customer base in a relatively short time and the sheer popularity of Sapphire brings with it a very lively atmosphere. The Thursday parties have traditionally been a great success and I don't suppose minor niggles about coyote dancers will be much of an issue then.

 Review from Dick Farang, June 2014: Still a GoGo?

Does The Sea on Soi Diamond still count as a gogo ?

I saw 3-4 average bikini dancers and 15-20 less than average coyotes.

No nudity.

At prime time there was only one other customer; the swarms of Japanese and South-Koreans seem to stay away as the quality of the girls is by far not what they are looking for.

Some coyotes tried to get lady drinks.

The old mamasan looked like an utterly uninterested granny.

A waste of time and money.

Bottled Heineken 130 baht.

I think if you only count the places with a MAJORITY OF bikini or less dancers, there are not 80ish gogos, but some 50 at best.

  Review January 2011: Swell

There seems to have been something of a shift in foot traffic over the last year. Highly successful gogos on Walking Street and Soi 15 seem to have taken some of their trade at the expense of those on Soi Diamond. The basic gogos of Paris (now closed), Carousel, The Sea and Naughty Girls are probably most in the firing line. The others have various specialities that are diverting enough for customers to make an effort.

Anyway of the four mentioned, the Sea has been the most successful at upping their game to keep hold of customers.

In fact on my last couple of visits, there have been quite a few girls keen to get a bit interactive. And consequently there have been quite a few happy looking customers enjoying the bar.

The Sea has always had a goodly amount of dancers for a small bar and the bar has consistently maintained a good quota of attractive girls.

It doesn't really compete with the new breed of high energy bars, but it is a good example of a more traditional format GoGo.

The draft beer is cheap at 55 Baht, but the music is a bit too noisy, verging on uncomfortable.

  Review June 2010: Lively

As only an occasional visitor to the Sea I was pleased to see that the bar seems to have loosened up a little on my last visit.

There was the usual gaggle of attractive girls but they seemed to be having more fun than usual and actually interacting with the customers.

I looked around and noticed that the previously noted officious mamasang wasn't marching around the bar trying to implement her rather aggressive band of match making.

And lo and behold, the girls were doing a better job for themselves.

Otherwise the bar was pretty much the same as before with plenty of girls on stage wearing less than an average amount of bikini bits.

The beer is still cheap and the music is still dance,

Now the question is, whether my unfavourite mamasang has departed or was she just having the night off.

  Report September 2009: Matriarchy

Still a bar that doesn't appeal to me at all.

There are always plenty of girls, many of them well attractive. They have a fair few on stage and are generally topless or less.

The trouble is that the girls seem uninterested in finding a drinking partner. The more attractive they are, the more they have a stern resolve to march off the stage to their seat crowding around the door. 

It seems to be the job of the mamasang to try and match up the girls with the customers. But this method leaves some seemingly unfriendly body language interaction with the girls who have just marched past all the potentially interested customers ignoring them.

The matriarchal controls also extend to negotiating with the customers for the girls offsite fees. Again the higher than average demands adds to the unfriendly atmosphere of the bar.

But if you just want to have a beer and watch some pretty girls on stage, then the bar is sound enough.

There's also a good 55 Baht draft beer in a decent sized glass.

They do have lots of dancers: 10-12 on each stage at any time. Even at prime time there were at least five girls per customer and not many customers were spending lady drinks.

More than 90% were coyote dancers; of the bikini dancers about half went topless.

Several of the coyotes were wearing skin colour tights, apparently a new trend coming from Cowboy 2 on Soi Cowboy in Bangkok, where everybody does.

To say I did not see any top notch talent is an understatement.

One positive point: they have clean toilets.

No draught beer, bottled Heineken was still 135 baht.

No change was returned: automatic tipping?

  Review from Malcolm, January 2014: Not a Sensation

Called in Sensations. About 16 girls on 2 stages, all in shorts and T shirts. Next dance team came on, mostly in shorts and T shirts and a few on back stage in bra's and thongs. 2 took off their bra's then one put it back on and went to sit with a customer leaving just one topless. Next dance team came on and it was back to all in shorts and T shirts.

Not much of a go go and certainly not a sensation.

Singha and San Migal B135.

  Review from Sedrik, July 2013: The quality is there

I visited at 1am, when I had bill number 361.

After a few visits, this is now one of my top 5 gogos.

The roster is just insane, so many ladies in this gogo, with 60-70 girls inside and so many are stunners. 80% are coyotes, 20% are bikini clad but there are no topless dancers

It's not a cheap gogo, no draft, nothing under 120-140 Baht, but the quality is there.

  Review from Mike of stayinginthailand.com, May 2013: Already a Contender

Sensations is the talk of the town right now and for good reason. Their lineup is the best I have ever seen! I wouldn't dare toss that compliment out loosely either. I have seen a couple of places that have had just as talented a lineup, but I have never seen such a large roster of girls at this high level. They feature over 100 girls every night, and most of them are very pretty. The service is great and it's easy to get the girls' attention. The place is packed so it's not easy to find a seat. I don't actually think there are enough seats to justify such a huge roster of girls. But this winds up being a very good thing as long as you do find a seat, since the number of gentlemen in attendance is somewhat limited.

Sensations is pricey. The drink prices are about as high as it's going to get and I was quoted 1,500 baht for a bar fine, which goes down to 1,000 baht either at midnight or 1AM (there was some confusion about that). But I get it - they are extremely well staffed (possibly even over-staffed), so they are justified in charging more than other GoGo's.

The atmosphere was downright exciting and there were just so many good looking girls prancing around the place. The way the stages are positioned you can only see about half of the girls at a time, but they rotate. It remains to be seen whether or not they can keep up with the roster, but if they do Sensations is likely to be in everyone's top 3 GoGo's in Pattaya.

  Initial impressions from Ishi, February 2013: Opening Night

There are two stages in a large bar. About 10 dancers were on each stage at any one time and they changed every 15 minutes.

I saw about 60 dancers in the bar and over 80% of them were coyotes.

It was impossible to select the best seats because the bar was just about full with customers.

No draught beer, soft drinks are 110B, bottled beer is from 135B and Lady drinks are 150B.

  News October 2014: Dark

The bar was reported dark in early October 2014 but this was just for a couple of days

  Review August 2012: Nostalgia

As I entered I let myself be guided to a seat by the obliging service staff and sat down to enjoy a beer.

After observing the bar for a while I noted that the bar seems to have a two tier customer service scheme going on. Or maybe just coincidence. All customers guided to seating on the Soi 15 side of the bar were immediately greeted with a pretty girl offering her services.

Customers guided to the Soi Diamond side of the bar seemed to be left to sit alone, mostly undisturbed by the girls. The criteria seemed to be based on age, and/or perceived cash resources.

So there I was sitting on the lonely side, but it gave me a chance to survey the bar in peace.

There were two shifts of girls working with about a dozen in each shift. The girls were wearing from bikinis to nothing. A good show on the nudity front. There were several very pretty girls too. So good standards on the dancing front.

I spotted one girl who looked familiar and she obligingly came across to the darkside for a chat. I recognised her from the old table dancing incarnation of Shark Club, and we had a good time reminiscing about the old version of the bar. It had a lot more character then, and was quite hands on. But saying that the current version seemed to be doing quite well in terms of customers, and is probably more popular then before. So one has got to move with the times.

Anyway I enjoyed a couple of drinks before it was time for her to dance. She let me know that she would be gone some time, 30 minutes in fact, so I made my excuses and departed.

Surely I will make a rapid return to the bar, and I will be experimenting to see if the ushers try to shunt me to the darkside again.

  Review January 2012: Clone

I have stopped by a couple of times and never really had much luck in the bar. The bar is perfectly decent with its central stage being well populated with dancers of which several are well attractive enough.

Perhaps there are too many girls on the stage and not enough on hostess duty. There  always seems to be a smattering of customers many of which look a bit lonely. Several of the girls were being friendly sitting with customers but just not enough. The basic dancing show is not quite exciting enough just to sit and watch, and and the girls aren't quite top notch enough to stun guys into passive watching mode.

The bar seems to have traded up from its previous incarnation that had lots of rough edges but also a lot of character. Now it is a lot more professional and slick, but it seems to exist as a rather unexciting clone of several other bars following the same theme. The upstairs location is probably enough to ensure that Shark stays second fiddle to similar downstairs bars.

Perhaps upstairs bars would be better advised to target a niche rather than become a clone.

Maybe a bit overly critical as the bar is quite fine. It's just that I rather miss the old Shark Club which was one of my favourites.

  Review March 2011: Renovated

The bar has now re-opened after a month of renovation.

The bar is totally restyled, changing from table dancing to a gogo with a central stage. Perhaps taking a cue from the successful launch of sister bar Fahrenheit, the bar is laid out similarly with a long thin central stage packed with girls. There are also a couple of small podiums at the end. There is plenty of comfortable bench seating and it is a little more spacious than Fahrenheit.

The bar has actually decreased in size overall with some space being given to an open walkway to the adjoining Tiger A-GoGo.

The bar has some good looking girls dancing, but on my visit the fashion for cramming the stage with dancers means a vey long dance roster of 30 minutes. Hopefully just a teething problem whilst they get act together. The girls were dancing in a range of not much to very little. The standard issue bikinis are very revealing.

The bar has kept the generally reasonable drinks prices but the bar seems to have dropped the happy hour.

But it all looks pretty good. Hopefully they won't lose Shark's emphasis on good hands on fun in trying to recreate the high energy 'watching' bar of Fahrenheit.

  News October 2010: A Tale of Two Ends

The difference between the 2 ends of the bar seems to be maintained.

Easily the best end is the old Shark Club end, accessed from Soi Diamond. The girls are friendly, hands on, and are dressed in a negligee affair.

At the old Shark GoGo end, accessed from Soi 15, the girls simply aren't as friendly and certainly not so keen on the lap dancing stuff. The dress code is a sometimes knickerless short skirt and almost mandatory bikini top.

Given the high end drinks prices, the GoGo end offers poor value compared with many better options. But the Club end is at least competitive in terms of fun and atmosphere and so is worth a try.

  News April 2010: Prices

The bar has generally been a success in the Thai-Anxiety rankings. It scores well in terms of having a decent number of good looking girls who are often quite hands-on friendly.

Perhaps the biggest long term draw back is that the girls are sent on a long dance circuit of usually 7 tables. 7 songs is a little too much especially when they can be very long dance music tunes.

But there are usually enough girls that one usually gets a decent amount of hostess time before the girls go dance.

More recently though the bar seems to have had a bit of a charge on drinks prices leaving soft drinks and lady drinks amongst the most expensive of all gogos in town. Perhaps the latest hike was a little too much though, as there was a rapid rethink and the introduction of a decent happy hour of 70 Baht on nearly all customer drinks.

One of the better GoGos in town, but now on my semi boycott list of bars where I don't want to encourage spiralling prices.

  News June 2009: Club or GoGo

The recently merged Shark A-GoGo/Shark Club still seems to be finding its feet with a pretty variable experience depending on the day of the week.

Although the bar is knocked through the, two ends of the bar still have a different feel, presumably down to having a mamasang for each end of the bar.

I very much recommend the Club end of the bar (ie above Super Girl). For some reason the girls are far more likely to seek out a few tips and hands on fun at that end of the bar. The girls at Soi 15 entrance end seem to be solitary creatures.

Both ends of the bar suffer from an over long dance roster of at least 7 dance songs. I tend to take this is a cue to move on.

The music is always of the dance variety but wildly random volume levels make for very different experiences. Sometimes it is very loud, similar to Casnovy and sometimes the music is kept down. One has to suspect that it's something to do with the boss being present or not.

Anyway I have certainly had a few good sessions mostly at the Club end of the bar and it is definitely on my regular circuit.

  News Dec 2008: Merged into Shark Club

Shark Club and Shark A-GoGo have now been merged into one with the name Shark Club A-GoGo. There are still separate teams of girls with mamasang at each end of the enormous bar area, but the dividing walls have been removed.

The Shark A-GoGo end of the bar now seems to have taken on the procedures of Shark Club.

This include the girls being hands on friendly. I surely enjoyed my stay in the bar. Seems a big improvement on the old Shark A-GoGo

  Review from Dick Farang, September 2014: Didn't rock my boat

maebariAs it was raining cats and dogs on Soi 15 and as I wanted a change from normal gogos I decided to take shelter at Smile Rock Girl's.

The interior of this single shophouse is very rudimentary with mirrors and red bench seating at both sides.

The central stage consists of a mattress near the entrance, some kind of mosaic structure (probably for soaping) and a surface with two chrome poles on it.

The venue was brightly lit and there was still Christmas decoration around.

The girls were clad in white strings, white whale net stay-up stockings and stilettos.

One of them was wearing a white bra and the four others old-fashioned nipple pasties (in the shape of a mouth, etc.).

They could have done it Japanese style: pasties for the nipples and a matching maebari for the snatch leaving their arse exposed.

None of them were beauties and two of them were very old, nearer to 50 than to 40 years old, I guess.

At any time one or two of them were shuffling near the chrome poles or lying on the mattress and the remaining ones were busy with the two other customers for some lady drinks.

At some point the oldest one got completely naked when playing with a customer.

I was lucky that nobody bothered to trouble me; I suppose they felt they were not my cup of tea.

Bottled Heineken 135 baht.

  News February 2013: Renovation

Re-opened after renovation on 23rd February 2013.

  News August 2012: Smile...Retoothed and Reopened

Smile Rock is currently closed for a much needed renovation. Hopefully the renovation extends to winding back the clock a bit for some of the dancers.

  Review July 2010: Smile...Not

Smile Girls A-GoGo is a tiny bar with bench seating down ether side of a central narrow stage. This leaves little space for the walkways down either side of the stage.

There's usually 3 girls on stage, 2 dancing, and the other soaping herself down in the Jacuzzi embedded in the centre of the stage. The girls are distinctly below average but the bar at least tries to get a couple of decent looking girls for Jacuzzi duty.

There's a cheap draft beer at 55 Baht.

Some of the girls can be quite hands on, and I've seen a few customers enjoying the attention.

But unfortunately the overall attitude towards customers is that of hassle. Some of the girls try to bully for tips way beyond the level acceptable in other Walking Street GoGos. I've found it an unpleasant bar to drink in on a couple of occasions.

  Review November 2009: Play Stage

Smile Girls A-GoGo recently had a quick re-fit. They have installed a Jacuzzi/play stage replacing part of the central dancing stage.

Perhaps even better, they have re-fitted some of the girls ensuring that there are now a few that are pleasing on the eye.

The very small size is surely very restrictive on the bar, as there is nowhere for a play area with ringside seating. I am sure the girls would be up for it. They seem quite hands on friendly.

The beer is still cheap albeit a smallish glass.

Anyway a good improvement at the moment. 

  Review September 2009:  Friendly Enough

A very small gogo that perhaps has done well to keep going.

On my visit there were 6 dancers of which 3 were dancing at anyone time. The dress code was topless. Of the 6, only one would have been on most customer's barfine list.

To give them their due though, the dancers were friendly enough and a couple of customers were enjoying themselves.

  Review March 2009:  Show and a Half

The dancing girls are not really up to scratch but seem friendly enough if you want to be take care of. However there were a couple of attractive showgirls.

They were pretty enough to get my interest but their show seemed never ending so I gave up the notion. I was told that the show goes on for an hour.

 Review from Dave, August 2014: Draft's Off

I popped into Spanky's last night around 9.30, not many punters. about 6.

There were 15 to 18 girls, most of them were attractive. They were wearing black G-strings only (a couple were wearing bras). There were no Coyote Dancers.

Music was good, not too loud.

There was no draft so I had a san Miguel. I bought 2 very attractive girls a drink and the bill came to 445 baht. So expensive for ex-pats.

One for the tourists I'd say.

  News, August 2013: Coyote

  News, May 2013: Draft's Off

  Review from Mike of stayinginthailand.com, February 2013: I Had Fun

The prices on the drinks aren't that bad anymore, but it's the type of place where you wind up buying lady drinks frequently.

This isn't the place to go if you just want to sit back and watch or pick by number. The girls here are very playful and interactive which is great only if that's what you're looking for.

I would say they definitely have better than average talent as well; the two times I've been there they've had a handful of good looking girls and one stunner.

Girls are topless on stage.

I think Spanky's has found an identity now in Pattaya, and I'll be back again.

  Review April 2012: Smiling

I visited at prime time just before Songkran and was happy to find a big improvement over my earlier visit.

Firstly, the bar has now laid on a cheap draft beer at 60 Baht which is served in a large measure.

Secondly, there were a good team of dancers on display. There were 8 dancers on stage at a time changing en-masse every few songs. There were just 2 teams though, so about 16 dancers on duty at the time. The girls were well above average, and were wearing a below average number of clothes.

And thirdly, the girls were playing the audience rather than focusing their gaze on convenient mirrors. And if they caught your glance then a big smile would warmly come your way. An excellent idea, and almost unique in Pattaya! The stage was well stocked with foam whips, and these would occasionally come into play for a bit of playful stage entertainment.

So some excellent improvements, but there were a couple of flaws too. Getting the girls to warmly smile at customers rather takes away the smile as a useful tool to signal interest in a particular girl, and for her to come over after the dance.

In fact there weren't really enough girls in the bar to make for a very successful effort on the hostessing front. I watched nearly all customers on my side of the bar depart after a single drink, presumably as there was little chance of company due to the girls being baggsied by several Asian customers on the other side of the bar.

But I guess that the general warmth of the bar will secure the services of a few more dancers and these temporary issues will be resolved.

So A for effort and B for achievement.

  Review December 2011: The Wallet Takes a Spanking

The bar has had a pretty low key opening with most early visitors reporting very few girls working in the bar.

On my visit there were 6 dancers on stage on 2 waiting in the wings. They were an attractive crew and were putting a fair amount of effort into their dancing. The girls were nicely dressed in mostly not very much. Thankfully no sign of coyotes here.

The small team of girls made for a pretty impossible situation. By my observation they were dancing 75% of their time and if you offered a lady drink, the girl would be back on stage barely before she had time to drink it.

The bar is pretty small, with the now almost mandatory central stage surround by a couple of tiers of comfortable bench seating. There's a Jacuzzi feature but it wasn't being used on my visit. And as a bit of nod to Angelwitch, the bar has an upper gallery from which the girls can slide down poles to the stage.

However there was no sign of a show. Maybe this is something for the future for when the bar gains momentum. After all the Bangkok branch is known for shows. I suspect the bar may prove a little small though to become a show venue. Maybe the small size will mean not enough customers to share the overheads of a show.

The staff were friendly and the mamasang was particularly personable.

I don't think I'll be rushing back though. Especially with a coke being a very expensive 130 Baht. I was a bit gob smacked being asked to pay such a premium price when the bar was operating at such a minimal level. I think they need an opening promotion to keep the drinks prices down until such a times as there is a premium product to justify them.

Its always tricky for bars to start up, it it very tough to get girls until the bar is up and running for the girls to see a good prospective employment. But for the moment the bar offers very poor value indeed, at least for coke drinkers.

  Review from Dick Farang, September 2014: Too Broad

Spicy Girls A-GoGo has opened on Walking Street at the previous location of Guugle and Powers Club A-GoGo.

It is upstairs of Champion A-GoGo and the entrance is between the entrance to Champion A-GoGo and the shoe shop where the German restaurant Bier Kutsche used to be.

The interior is predominantly red with a too narrow elliptical stage.

Not much, if anything, has changed since its last incarnation.

The toilets urgently need a lick of paint.

Apart from the main area there is an apparently unused second area with seating only at the street side next to the staircase.

Whereas many recent gogos are too narrow (Infinity, Glasshouse, Ginza, Lighthouse, Mandarin, Sugar Baby, etc.) this one is rather too broad and the extra space has not really been made good use of.

There were eight to ten dancers, about half of them on stage.

The line-up was definitely below average.

Most of them were wearing double tops and double bottoms, but some also showed their naked fat torsos above their double bottoms.

I would not be surprised if some of them came from the previous edition of Nui's.

The mamasan told me she came from Sugar Baby A-GoGo on Walking Street.

  Review January 2013: Windmill 2

I stopped by at prime time during peak season.

I found the bar to be surprisingly close in style and format to Windmill. I rather assumed that the Walking Street location would mean a different customer base and hence a different way of working.

The bar hadn't really taken off in terms of quantity of customers nor girls. There were half a dozen dancing of which a couple would have turned a few eyes. They were topless or bikini clad. The girls were following the good Windmill dance pattern of a complete shift change between the two teams after a minimal amount of songs.

As per Windmill,  the girls were making an effort to seek out customers interested in a little hands on fun. I had to break up an attempt at double teaming but the girl I chose of the two was good company and made for a pleasant visit.

Not quite firing on all cylinders yet, but the concept of being a Windmills 2 is an attractive addition to the options on Walking Street.

 Review from Dick Farang, September 2014: Super average

At Super Baby on Soi Diamond everything has returned to normal since the fuglies from sister gogo Super Girl have gone back where they belong.

There were six to ten dancers at a time on stage, all of them above average (a rarity in Pattaya nowadays).

This time they were topless in white strings, not in the usual transparent white skirts.

In the middle of the stage was a metal swing that I never noticed before.

In the jacuzzi was a friendly smiling girl with big natural boobs and an unshaven beaver.

Compared to sister gogo Super Girl the girls at Super Baby are several notches better and also the interior is much nicer, as if the owners put all their effort and talent into Super Baby.

Bottled Heineken (and probably any drink) was 120 baht and popcorn 100 baht.

  Review from Dick Farang, August 2014: Super Absorbent

During the badly needed renovation of Super Girl, their sister gogo Super Baby absorbed the (ugly) dancers from Super Girl.

All of them were dancing in the typical Super Baby outfit: topless with a transparent white skirt.

The central stage was fuller than usual with the Super Baby beauties alternating with the saggy tits and pudding bellies from Super Girl.

After each song two dancers at a time left the central stage to dance one more song on two small stages at the far left.

At the back I saw three dry Jacuzzi girls with full grown beavers standing, just standing, hardly moving.

The music was less blaring than in most gogos nowadays and I remember that, at a given moment, they played the Lambada song, which was a big hit about 25 years ago.

Bottled Heineken was still 120 baht (probably the cheapest gogo in the Walking Street area, for bottled beer that is).

 Review from Dick Farang, May 2014: Reasons to Smile

Thursday evening I visited Super Baby to check the [false] rumour that they charge 200 baht for any drink now. To my surprise it was only 120 baht for a bottled Heineken, compared to 145 baht at the Happy group gogos.

It was between 9 and 10 p.m., but I doubt they apply a happy hour there. They also still sell popcorn at 100 baht.

All dancers were topless with a white transparent skirt and no pants. All dancers seemed to be unshaved and I did not see any real fatties. About ten dancers were on stage, who moved up one place after each song. There were also some naked ones showering.

Despite what you often read on internet, some of the dancers even smiled at the patrons.

 Review from RickG, March 2010: Super Excuses

I got there about 11:30 pm, and the club was not very busy. About 10 or 11 girls on the centre stage and the shower / bath area at the back was populated by four attractive girls, but no one seemed to notice. There were some very cute girls on stage, some of the hottest on the street, hardly a bad egg amongst them. A couple of 9's a bunch of 8's and the rest better looking than the girls at an average go-go bar.

As I sat down, I looked into the eyes of one of the hottest girls in the club, I smiled at her. To my astonishment, she smiled back. I offered to buy her a drink, she didn't respond at first. I repeated my request and she agreed.

I had just established that she was a local girl from Chonburi, pale skinned and exquisite, she had worked at SuperBaby for four months and had a 3 year old son. I was just about to enquire whether her magnificent breasts were completely real, when she started to clutch her stomach and say she was hungry. She indicated she had her own food, and she disappeared to go fill up, leaving her drink almost untouched.

She reappeared just in time to start her dance cycle on stage. I counted the songs, .. 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. Ten songs! this is ridiculous! I am not a patient man, but this girl seemed worth waiting for. She had been on stage for over 30 mins. Finally she collected her bikini top, and headed off stage. But she disappeared in the crowd. I was surprised to see she was sitting with some other guys.

I called over the mamasang, and explained the story. She spoke to her and got some story about thinking I didn't want her to sit with me. I protested that I was not going to pay for a lady drink for less than 5 mins of companionship, even with a hot girl, then kept waiting for 40 mins just to be dumped. Without a moments hesitation she pulled the second slip from the bin and told me I didn't have to pay for the lady drink. I paid up and made a hasty exit.

This behaviour is very unusual. There is a kind of agreement that the girl will sit with you till she has finished her drink. To walk away without finishing a drink is a broken promise, that gets go-go dancers and the club a bad name.

  Review from Ishi, Jan 2010: The Show Must Go On

Super Baby and Super Girl have show time again but just for Jacuzzi girls.

The difference between normal time and show time is just brightness (darker for show) and music (slower for show). The dancers on the stages no longer change their costumes.

Of course the Jacuzzi girls are naked all time, so it's impossible to change costumes for them. And the Jacuzzi girls dance as usual.

I happened to hear that the DJ said, Show Time. so I could tell which is which. But I was not sure so I confirmed with a service girl: Is this show time? She said: Yes. For the Shower Girls.

  Review from materialsman, July 2009: Faded Glory

Considering this was a Friday night, albeit in a supposed low, low season, I have to admit I have never seen Baby so devoid of customers, shocking to me really, considering the line up of lithe limbed young ‘hotties’ that is the norm for a Bar catering to the discerning Asian gentleman.

The line up was pretty reasonable, but they looked fairly bored by the lack of the 4-4-4 customers on this particular evening, and I feel that as much as I like the ‘Japanese’ look of the ladies, being an aficionado of their style of perverted pornography, it didn’t suit some of the girls on stage, I think that sort of curly, back combed hair look only works if the girl has the right facial features. So again we only had a couple of beers in the place, and frankly without the customer base they are famed for, the place is starting to look like a bit of a ‘faded glory’ Bar at present. Still a fairly good line up on stage though, so they are forgiven and I will always go back there.

  Review from Dick Farang, August 2014: Post Renovation

Super Girl on Soi Diamond has indeed, be it with some hesitations, reopened.

I did not notice any sign of a serious renovation.

The upholstery of the fixed barstools was still worn and torn.

The fuglies had come back from sister gogo Super Baby.

The outfits had changed from white strings to beach bikinis (no strings) with bared breasts and transparent white kind of loose dressing gowns (a perfect camouflage for stretch marks, saggy tits and pudding bellies).

Bottled Heineken (and probably any other drink) was still 120 baht and popcorn 100 baht.

  News from Ishi, July 2014: Closed for renovation

Super Girl is closed for renovation for two months. Dancers and staff moved to Super Baby from 5th July. There were over 50 dancers in Super Baby and it brought in a lot of customers.

In fact the bar re-opened after a month on 5th August.

  Review from Dick Farang, May 2014: Faded Glory

I visited Super Girl on Soi Diamond around 11 p.m. [in the days just before the curfew came in]

Prices were the same as at Super Baby: bottled Heineken 120 baht, popcorn 100 baht.

When I entered, one of the touts showed me a small sign 120; I guess all drinks are the same price.

On stage were 8 to 9 topless dancers in white strings.

There was also a bath with 3 naked girls, nothing to write home about.

The quality of the dancers was significantly lower than at Super Baby; there were even several real fatties among them.

Also, the interior was completely worn out, especially the upholstery of the barstools.

There were not many customers.

A faded glory.

  Review November 2010: The Sun Never Sets

Pretty much the same as always.

The stage is full of very good looking girls doing a very slow rotation of about 10 songs. Mostly dancing with a vacant look and an unsmiling face, but friendly enough if you catch their attention. The girls tends to have overtly styled hairdos presumably as these appeal to the Japanese customers usually forming the majority in the bar. Note that the bar is in no way exclusive, everyone is equally welcome.

There is also a Jacuzzi with some equally good looking girls but they don't do much beyond soaping themselves down.

There is no interaction in this bar unless customers make a specific request for a girl.

The drinks and girls prices in the bar have been traditionally on the high end. But these have been held for quite a while and other bars have caught up.

Not really a very animated bar, and there are many bars that are a lot more fun. But if you want to partake in quietly watching girls dance for a couple of beers while choosing a pretty girl, then there are few better.

  Review November 2009: Sudsy Bikini

A quick look around the rapidly revealed that not much is changing in Super Girls.

There were still plenty of good looking girls coiffed up with Japan pleasing hair styles. They were dancing a long spell on the central stage followed by another song on a table dancing stage..

They were all dancing topless. But perhaps a subtle change is that the girls were smiling compare with rather blank faces that seem to have been mandated in the bar up until this visit.

A Jacuzzi has been installed in the bar a fair few months ago and I was fascinated by the pointlessness of this particular attraction. There were 3 girls partaking but there was no interaction between them. They were all simply doing an insipid dance as per the rest of the girls on stage. One may argue that the attraction is that the girls are naked but as far as I could see the girls were busy forming the soap suds into a replacement bikini bottom. Nothing to see of interest there then.

But as always, the bar seemed to be doing well with a decent amount of customers appreciating the pick 'n' go style of the bar.

  Review Feb 2009: Super Lookers

The bar is sticking with a well tried and tested policy of very good looking girls and a pick a number and go selection method.

Maybe even the prettiest line up in town at the moment. Strange that it doesn't really attract so many farangs as Happy and Peppermint and several others. Well not so strange really, as perhaps the way the bar works is more targetted towards Japanese and Korean visitors. There is nothing exclusive about this bar though, all visitors are welcomed here. Maybe something to bear in mind for anyone thinking that Pattaya gogos are all members only.

Anyway there are usually about a dozen girls dancing on the central stage with another couple at small podiums next to the main stage. The dress code is topless with slightly see through skirts and no knickers.

There is also a Jacuzzi featuring 3 naked girls but I didn't see anything naughty that you may come to expect from a Pattaya Jacuzzi. Could have been down to a lack of tips though.

The music keeps the girls entranced to the point of being zombiefied when dancing. By all accounts the girls are perfectly friendly if you call them down from the stage. It is just the stage that is a smile free environment.  Saying that I did spot a few more smiles than I remember from previous visits.

The drinks prices are on the high end of the scale but not our of order.

  Review June 2008: Super Friendly

I generally avoid the Super bars as I don't really go for the vacant unsmiling expressions and the general onus on the customers to select a girl by number.

It is rumoured that the glum stare whist dancing is a nod to Japanese guys preferring it that way.

Anyway I paid a rare visit to Super Girl and I caught the attention of a happy smiling dancer who acknowledged a gesture with a big smile back.

As soon as her dance stint was over she bounded over for a chat. She was a bubbly girl and made for good company.

Surely out of character for the bar but I soon found out the reason why. It was her first day there.

I promised to go back in a few days and check whether she has learnt the zombie expression yet. I told her that it would be perfectly alright if she decided to blank me out totally. I would put it down to a successful induction into the Super Girl ethos.

  Review from polleke, Oct 2007: Nothing special

  Review from Dick Farang, December 2014: Curtains

The entrance to Sweetheart's A-GoGo is curtained off by a black piece of cloth now and there is a good reason for it: after years of prudishness there is some nudity on display.

Not much has changed, but apart from the traditional team of bikini dancers clad in white with matching stay-up stockings and stilettos, there is also a team of topless dancers now in black strings and ditto stilettos.

Among the (probably newly hired) topless dancers I saw two extreme fatties.

Bottled Heineken 130 baht.

  News from Dave, November 2014: Surprise

I had a shock when I popped into Sweethearts on Saturday night,

Topless Girls,

It was a very pleasant surprise.

  Review from Dave, August 2014: It's still very sexy

I popped into Sweethearts on Thursday evening around 11pm, as I often do. There was a fair crowd enjoying the table dancers and 70's- 80's rock music.

There was a mix of slim very attractive girls , chubby and some fat girls.

Although the girls wear bikini's, it's still very sexy. There is also hands on fun.

Everyone is very friendly and the drink prices amongst the cheapest on walking street.

A short time has risen from 1500 to 2000.with rooms upstairs.

  News January 2013: New Manager

Long time meeter and greeter Mick recently retired and has now been replaced by Brian.

  Review December 2011: Steady

I popped in for my very occasional beer and everything is about the same as usual. Except that the drinks prices have edged up. They are still within the very reasonable range, but are now more psychologically expensive than major bars with prettier girls and less clothes.

The friendly greeter made his welcome, leaving me to scan the bar. There were plenty of girls with 6 dancing at any one time. They were doing an excellently short dancing roster of just 3 songs. That would be great for customers awaiting their drinking partner to return from her dance shift.

But actually there weren't any customers that I could see sitting with girls. Most seemed to have been attracted in by the open door policy. Other bars just don't seem quite so welcoming to tourists with just a passing interest in GoGos. This rather left groups of customers, several of them ladies,  chatting amongst themselves rather than being interested in the girls.

The bar still is designed around table dancing which is not a comfortable viewing position, too much neck craning and the likes. Also there's no fun if the girls are all respectably clad in full bikinis.

So as usual, I left everybody in the bar enjoying doing their own thing and moved on. A traditional and perfectly pleasant, but unexciting, one beer visit.

  Review May 2010: Narrow Minded

The combination of cheap prices and an 'all welcome' policy continue to keep the bar busy.

Thereafter things seem to drift for me a little. The bikini clad table dancing does not really hit the mark for me, and does not offer the right opportunity to catch the eye of a dancer.

There are usually a good number of girls, especially  for the smallish size of the bar. (Thinking about narrow bars, this must be one of the most successful in dealing with what is usually quite a handicap of a layout). The girls are about average, but average is not a negative term on Walking Street.

There's often a few customers enjoying a bit of 'in yer lap' fun too.

The music is oldie farang friendly and there are plenty of service girls on hand to keep the drinks flowing steadily.

A well sound bar then, makes me wonder why I never stay for more than a beer. Perhaps I have a deep psychological issue with the lack of nudity.

  Review August 2009: Open Door

The bar still seems to be doing quite well in drawing in some of the passing foot trade that would otherwise give gogos a miss.

The bar has about 20 dancers of which 8 are dancing a 4 song shift on 4 tables. The girls are all strictly bikini clad which is related to the open door policy of the bar. Some if the girls can be quite hands on, perhaps beyond what one may expect from an open door bar.

The bar features very reasonable prices for more or less everything on the menu. The dancers and the staff are quite friendly and the owner makes a point of a personal welcome too.

  Review Feb 2009: Warm Welcome

Sweethearts still seems to be doing well. The open door policy coupled with reasonable drinks prices seems to attract a wider range of customers than most gogos.

The owner makes an effort to welcome customers which came as something of a shock as I am not used to being sought out. I usually try and hide away from farangs behind a lap full of girls.

The girls are strictly bikini clad and I guess this is coupled with the open door policy. The girls are not quite top notch but there are plenty who I would entertain on my lap. In fact I stayed single on my last visit. I was coveting my neighbour's hostess, she was lovely.

Of the bars without shows or naughty stuff, this is one of the more successful. Probably down to the cheap drinks and warm welcome.

  Review May 2008: Open to the World

The bar seems to have carved out a niche that is attracting a good crowd.

It is just a little bit more inviting than most gogos. It leaves the front door open so that passers by can see the table dancing within.

The open door policy probably provides a little encouragement for inquisitive tourists who maybe a little shy to venture into the unknown of a closed door bar.

The bar is more friendly than most to South Asian and Middle Eastern tourists too.

The downside for the more hardened gogo addict, is that the open door policy means that there is no nudity or naughty shows for passers by to see (or customers for that matter)

The girls are average but that still means that there are some good looking girls.

The music is oldie farang and the drinks prices are very reasonable.

Good to see a bar catering for a wider audience than most. There's plenty of room in Pattaya for a bit of variety.

  Review Sep 2007: Still One Beer

The bar has policies in place to make this a successful GoGo. The drinks prices are competitive and the barfines are amongst the cheapest in Pattaya's gogos. There are always managers on hand for a chat, or to sort out problems.

As a result the bar has now built up a large team of dancing girls of which many are attractive.

The good policies enable a good bar, but actual fun is still down to individually how one hits it off with the girls. Unfortunately on my visits, the girls have been a little standoffish and so I have rarely stayed long. There is no reason why others shouldn't be luckier.

Another recent negative is that the bar seemed to react more cautiously than most to the worries about a police visit. The girls were distinctly overdressed when other bars were still taking risks.

  News July 2013: Promotion

Tiger seems to be in need of a little low season push so standard drinks prices have been reduced to 95 Baht.

  Review February 2012: Worth a Try

Tiger seems a long term middling sort of venue that most often gets mentioned in conjunction with its senior partners Shark and Fahrenheit.

It usually has 6-8 girls dancing which seems to be about half of the dancing girls available. They are about an average team, but the Walking Street average is pretty good. The dress codes seems to be the common mix of topless and bikini clad.

The bar is a bit mixed in terms of friendly girls but not too bad. The long dancing stint can put a bit of a dampener on budding romances though.

It is certainly a bar where I have had good times, but it not really consistent, due mostly to the restricted number of girls. It is worth a try though.

There is a cheap draft beer and other drinks prices are near the top end of the 'reasonable' range.

  Review September 2011: Roaring trade

Another first visit after recent renovations. And it seems to have followed a bit of a trend that the bar is improved after renovation. I don't suppose that the improvement is much to do with the physical changes, but more to do with making an effort by employing more staff so as to get more from the changes.

The bar has been cut down in size by partitioning off the back section. Surely this makes the main section of the bar feel busier, not to see a cavernous empty space.

Also the new Jacuzzi adds to the sights to watch. It wasn't really dragging down any customers to sit close by, but it adds to the overall atmosphere as there are plenty of things going on.

The bar was actually as lively as I have seen it in recent times, with lots of girls dancing, but still lots of girls sitting with customers and generally being quite interactive.

Long time Pattaya mamasang Jesse (looks a bit like Tina Turner) was doing a good job ensuring that the girls were approaching customers.

All in all a lively venue which is worth a visit.

  News from Ishi, July 2011: Re-opened after  Renovation

The bar re-opened on 22nd July after a month or so of renovations.

The main stage (with 4 dancers) has not changed, but the remainder of the bar has been down sized using a curtain.

The bar counter has moved next to the entrance up from Walking Street.

A Jacuzzi with 3 dancers has been installed close to the main stage.

  Review January 2011: A Change of Stripes

The Tiger/Shark bars have often made for enjoyable visits. They feature that rare mix of good looking AND hands on friendly girls. However the bars have also been somewhat flawed by long dance rosters and expensive drinks (with the gimmick of discounts hardly worth having).

In the last couple of months the bars have seen a change of approach which has put Tiger back on my favourites list. Drinks prices have been reduced and are now on the cheaper half of the Pattaya scale. Lady drinks are 120 and draft beer is 60 Baht (45 Baht in Happy Hour).

Also the bar has changed the dance rostering so that the girls dance for a fxed amount of time (15 or 20 minutes). The girls are in 2 teams which swap over at the ends of each shift.

I guess that these changes are related to the new sister bar at Fahrenheit which seems to be doing very good business on these terms.

Anyway Tiger has been a good place to visit in the last few weeks

  Review May 2010: Vestigial Features

Tiger still seems to be the weaker link of the three areas of the Tiger/Shark bars.

The bar runs more or less the same as the others but somehow seems to retain the least interactive girls of the three.

The bar has loads of table dancing stages and they are brought into play according to the number of girls. Whenever I have been in there have been far too many girls set to dancing with not really enough set to work hostessing. This leaves the bar being a little less fun than Shark, particularly the old Shark Club end.

I think that the difference is simply down to vestigial differences from when the bars were separate entities. Shark Club was easily best then, so people who still remember these times tend to gravitate there. No doubt this will fade with time.

That's not to say fun isn't available in Tiger, it's just less likely.

The girls are generally good looking and so there's no problems on that front.

The music is strictly of the dance variety and the volume tends to be a bit inconsistent.

The drinks prices have been pushed up to the top end and offer a little less value than some of the bar's competitors. Same ball park though, not a massive difference.

  Review August 2009: Tiger Stirs

Tiger Lounge is in the same ownership as Shark Club A-GoGo and on previous visits was very much the poor relation despite operating nearly exactly the same as Shark.

The difference previously was that there were simply too many dancers dancing and not enough left to look after the customers. On my last visit they had recruited enough girls to provide some individual entertainment for the customers.

And sure enough, the girls had a good hands on attitude to customer service and indeed a good time ensured.

The dance circuit is very long though, so as per Shark Bar, when your girl 'go dance, then it is often a cue to move on.

The draft beer prices have recently crept up 10 Baht to 85 Baht for a decent sized glass.

  Review from Dick Farang, July 2014: Exit visa required

Yesterday, after a long while, I visited Upstairs (formerly Utopia) on the Siberian part of Walking Street.

I saw three bikini dancers, four topless ones and two naked ones.

Apart from the naked (dry) jacuzzi dancer, all were plain ugly.

The Danish owner appears to sit there all the time, smoking and drinking.

The interior is still as impractical as before and the stools as unstable.

All the staff were extremely pushy for lady drinks and the ugly, very skinny naked dancer with a lot of piercings was even cheeky.

When it became clear I was not going to waste more money everybody stopped dancing and left the stage, probably waiting for the next customer.

I saw one “hostess”, but there does not seem to be a mamasan.

Draught beer 99 baht, bottled Heineken 149 baht, 2-for-1 offers for shots.

Note that to leave you have to push a button near the exit door; the only other gogo I can remember where customers are locked up this way is Sapphire on Soi 15.

A place to avoid.

  News November 2012: Utopia Upstairs

Utopia has renamed to Upstairs A-GoGo after a change of management.

  Review January 2012: Not Quite Utopia

I visited at prime time and the bar seemed to be doing OK.

There were half a dozen girls dancing on the stage in a wide range of dress from coyote down to very little. There were a couple of very attractive dancers and they were making quite an effort on the dancing front.

The layout of the bar looks a bit of challenge. The U shaped bar gives no central place for the dancers. They use just one leg of the 'u' and it does not have enough comfortable seating. So mostly they are expecting customers to use stools.

There were a fair few customers but there seemed to be a pretty rapid turnover. Perhaps not enough girls to keep more than a handful of customers amused by on the hostessing front.

The girls were being friendly enough though, and they were approaching customers.

The bar seems a pleasant place for a drink, but is not quite convincing enough to stay for two.

  Review February 2011: New Management

Utopia A-GoGo re-opened after a short break on 26th February with a new management team in place.

I didn't spot anything drastic changing in the layout. The main stage is in front section of the bar where there is just a little bench seating but mostly stools. There's more comfortable seating at the back of the bar but it is way too far from the stage.

It takes a while for a bar to gain momentum in recruiting girls, so not really very valid to comment in the first few days. There were perhaps too few girls but some were attractive enough.

The dress code was bikini or semi transparent skirts like at Super Baby with not much else underneath. Some girls danced topless.

The drinks prices follow Pattaya norms at 65 Baht for a decent sized draft beer, 120 Baht for bottled beer, 90 Baht for soft drinks and 120 Baht for lady drinks. There is an opening offer of 20% off all these prices making 52 Baht for draft, 96 Baht for bottled beer & lady drinks, 72 Baht for soft drinks.

There was a mamasang doing a good job in circulating around the customers to check that all was well.

The bar is farang managed and seems set to progress. I would guess the biggest challenges will be the southerly location and the lack of comfortable seating with a view.

  Review from Pattaya-Addicts October 2010: Las Vegas Showgirls

What's Up has transformed into something of a cabaret show bar. Like something from Las Vegas with prices to match.

Some will say Angelwitch still rules the standard for shows, but they have not replaced their shows for a while and same-same tends to get stale after a while. This is was my first time at What's Up for a while, so I enjoyed the shows quite a bit.

The shows are choreographed with up to 8 girls but they still remember their roots and the shows feature lots of lesbian fun.

And still the showgirls find the time to entertain customers by sitting on their laps.

  News July 2010: Out of Order

An argument over taking pictures in the bar escalated out of control and ended up with customers being bottled by What's Up staff.

  Review by Rick G of pattaya-discover, May 2010: Gyrations

What's Up has always been a fun experience for me.

A small central stage, with 4 girls dancing, a play area and a shower area, plus a small exercise area where girls swing on those chains that hang from the ceiling. It's one of What's Up's unique features. The more skilled girls swing on these chains, in acrobatic fashion, engaging in all kinds of gyrations, and offering every part of their curvacious bodies for inspection and interaction. Girls are keen to interact, and constantly make eye contact. They're perhaps a little pushy, but there's lots of cute girls willing to interact with you, in any way you can think of.

It's still a great club, and well worth a visit.

  News from Ishi, Dec 2009: What's Upstairs?

What's Up (Officially What's Up Play Girls) is set to open its upstairs floor.

It will be called What's Up Imagine and will open on 15th December 2009.

Imagine and Play Girl have the same entrance and to enter the Imagine we have to use upstairs. One of the staff said that the concept of Imagine is different from Play Girl. I can't guess.

  Reader review Nov 2009: Jacuzzi Tips

The performance at the Jacuzzi is quite interactive and enjoyable. Although there is a girl, the pretty one who she thinks is the queen of the town and she is a bit rude.

They don’t ask for a drink at the Jacuzzi, but a tip is very welcome. A 20 Baht note is enough, although you will need more than one tip if you continue.

The performance at the stage didn’t interest me at all, just the Jacuzzi.

Beer Singha costs 115 Baht, a little expensive.

  News May 2009: What's Up

The bar is expanding into the upper floors (last used as Fantasia Bar). The first floor will be an expansion to the gogo complete with Jacuzzis and the second floor will be short time rooms

  Review April 2009: Bar Owner's Dream

What's Up must be every bar owner's dream. The bar charges top dollar for more or less everything and at the same time is more less packed out.

Over recent years the put some good sexy policies in place with their Jacuzzi and mattress play areas. They also had the idea of getting the showgirls to go clambering amongst the customers in the nearby seats.

All good stuff but for me the bar has simply got too expensive. The beer has gone up from the 60 Baht draft level to no draft and 125 Baht bottles. And the bar fines seem to be more or less set at the top end of unreasonable and can be doubled should a temporary opportunity arise.

Whilst I appreciate the entertainment talent of the show girls, I am not sure what the rest of the audience are enjoying. The girls on the main dancing stage seem somewhat demurely dressed and most of them seem to sit by the door rather than go out mingling.

On my last visit I had a beer and a brief chat with a showgirl I know. As a gesture to the inflated drinks prices I offered the odd 20 Baht note change to my friend rather than leave it on the tray. Another girl spotted the tip and made a surly remark about it being 20 rather than 100. Just about sums up What's Up.

  Review from Ishi on opening night: Half wolf half cat

I visited after about 11pm.

I saw 10 dancers on the stage. One dancer would change each song. The girls were dancing enthusiastically, and were paying attention to the audience. Half the dancers were bikini clad and the others were coyote. I saw just one topless dancer. 5 show girls were bottomless.

There were 24 dancers on the mamasan's board but 6 were off.

There was a happy hour before 10pm when st least some drinks were 69 Baht. After happy hour soft drinks are 95 Baht. There's no draft beer.

  Review from Dave, September 2014: Well worth a visit

I popped into the Windmill last night around 9-15, it was busy as usual,

All the Dancers were naked, it was very nice.

Most of the girls are only average, but there were a few very attractive girls. I bought a couple of drinks for a lovely girl.

Anyway it's well worth a visit at the moment.

I don't know how long the nudity will last though.

  Comments from Sedrik, July 2013: Very busy

Very busy like every time. The bar didn't have any seats left so I didn't stay.

Nothing has changed for a long time. Windmill works very well, so why change.

  Review from Mike of stayinginthailand.com, February 2013: More of the same, which is a good thing

Windmill has a well established reputation especially for having very accommodating girls, and things went as expected for me there this week.

Prices are good, the girls are average, and it's a fun if slightly raunchy place. But sometimes I want to go to a raunchy place and evidently I'm not the only one because Windmill didn't have an empty seat and this was on a weekday. It's popular for good reason and since it's not a big place you're just not guaranteed a seat.

If I wanted to barfine a lady I would not go to Windmill, but on a night where I specifically do not want to barfine a girl and just want to have maximum enjoyment for an hour, I'd gladly head back to Windmill. I'm just not big on waiting around for a seat; not that it's their fault.

  Review July 2012: Great Expectations...

I had a good visit around midnight and everything seemed to be pretty much as you would expect, (Assuming you have been to Windmill before). Actually, anyone not having been to Windmill before, would be very unlikely to expect the hardcore hands on fun that goes down there.

But actually thing weren't exactly like I was expecting. In particular there were dancers in coyote gear. Somehow my brand of cod bar psychology suggests that coyotes and Windmill don't mix. I see the coyote dress code as an outward sign of being in the ascendancy in a power relationship. It sort of says that the girl chooses to dress modestly because she can. Maybe she can dictate terms because of a shortage of girls, maybe because she is extraordinarily good looking or perhaps she has a sponsorship income to fall back on and doesn't really need to put out. Whatever the reason, coyotes tend to be expensive, choosy or just not available.

So it was something of a surprise to see coyotes in Windmill. If a girl doesn't want to take off, then she's hardly likely to want to put up with hands on fun associated with the bar. But I was assured that the coyotes there have a good attitude to customer care.

As I was being well looked after by a traditionally undressed dancer, I didn't pursue my musings any further. But perhaps on my next visit I will have interview one the coyotes and probe her motivations, and see for myself.

  Review February 2012: Popular...

Whenever I have popped by Windmill over the last couple of months it has been pretty well packed out. There was a time earlier in the year when things weren't looking quite up to scratch, but then the managerial boot was forcibly applied and now the bar is back to peak popularity.

There seem to be three routes to being a popular GoGo in Pattaya. The first is to employ the prettiest girls in Pattaya. Never fails to attract hoards of customers. Another route is to provide a good quality, professionally produced, sexy show. The third is to get hands on girls to jump onto customers' laps. And Windmill is one of the best examples of the third way.

The bar has dancers on a central stage, a few on tables in front of the audience, and there are also 3 naughty show areas. This is where bananas and other props play an integral part in the sexy shows that abound there.

The Windmill girls are very proactive in seeking out partners for an intimate chat featuring plenty of body language. And this goes down very well with customers indeed. And for services beyond the call of duty, lady drinks and tips are most definitely required.

Seeing so many customers, and so many lady drinks, makes me wonder why a few more bars don't follow suit. There's only one and a half others that partake in the same idea, Baby Dolls + a show table in X-Zone. Probably it is down to being difficult to get the obliging girls necessary for the concept to work.

And work it does.  I am just waiting for high season to dampen down a bit. Perhaps then I can find a space to squeeze into, and hence to enjoy the happy benches of Windmill.

 Review February 2011: Still Good...But...

There seems to be a bit of a consensus of commentators on the Pattaya forums that Windmill has declined a little. And I tend to concur.

Nothing major has changed to the format of the bar. It is still a very hands-on bar with very obliging girls. It is still very popular and there are plenty of girls there.

But the probability of having a good time seems to have dropped from the near 100% chance a year ago.

Perhaps there are a few clues, but I don't know if anything major has changed in the bar's organisation. A few months ago a fair girls I knew shipped across to Baby Dolls so perhaps a little decline at that point. Since then I have noted a slightly hard edge to the bar. One girl turned out to be a tequila monster demanding another almost as soon as she had downed the first. Another time I got shifted out of a show side seat in favour of apparently more deserving customers. And also it now seems a bar policy that girls rapidly down their drinks just as they 'go dance' to ensure that they are not obligated to return after the dance. this Allows the girls to change customer if they see someone better. Nothing much really to worry about much but it tends to add up.

But saying that Windmill is still naughtier fun than most bars in town.

  Review July 2010: Likely Fun

Windmill gets the Thai-Anxiety award for the bar where it is most likely that an agreeable girl will jump on my lap and make the visit a success.

Down mainly to the dedicated entertainment committee of the girls and the management, but perhaps the small size of the bar assists too. The bar simply can't squeeze in too many customers for the amount of girls available, which is quite a lot anyway.

So the girls make for  great hands on hostesses, there's naughty shows in the Jacuzzi and on play mat stages. The drinks prices are good and the happy hour is very cheap with 45 Baht drinks.

But really its that nearly 100% likelihood of fun that makes Windmill one of Pattaya's outstanding gogos.

  News from Ichi, May 2010: Reds Away

The bars recent dalliance with red knickers seems to have come to an end and the bar is back to its au naturel norms.

  Review from RickG, March 2010: Super Fun

I stepped inside, and felt like I was intruding on someone else's orgy. Windmill re-defined raunchy and interactive some years ago, and most other clubs have been trying to catch up ever since. Well tonight Windmill was clearly way out in front again. This was friendly, raunchy and interactive like you have never seen before. Girls were running around in various stages of undress offering various parts of their anatomy to anyone who was in the mood to interact. And tonight everyone was interacting. For most of the time I was there, there were only a few girls on stage. Meanwhile, there were more than 20 girls creating their own kind of fun with guys in various parts of the club. At one point some of the hostesses stripped off and got up on stage to make up the numbers. By the way, the dance cycle at Windmill is only 4 songs.

Windmill doesn't have the hottest girls on the street, but it does have the friendliest, most fun girls you will find just about anywhere. At most other clubs, girls will introduce themselves by holding out their hand. At Windmill, the girls will approach you, pull aside their bra and offer one or both breasts for you to fondle, or else will approach butt first, skirt raised to engage in some rhythmic gyration.

At around 2 am, several western couples wandered in, and sat down. After a few minutes in Windmill, even the stern looking elderly matrons were smiling from ear to ear. Once inside Windmill, all this debauchery seems like the most natural thing in the world. If you're feeling inhibited or a little stressed step inside Windmill for an instant cure!

Windmill has draught beer at Bt 75. The best value for money in town, considering the entertainment! Lady drinks are Bt 120.

 X Zone A-GoGo

Very large gogo with multiple stage including the very interactive soapy stage. Opened December 2005. Expensive bottled beer. Closed in July 2014.

  News from Ishi, July 2014: Dark

The bar was dark on 30th July 2014 with a notice on the door saying closed but not providing a reason. Staff at nearby bars claim that the closure may be permanent.

   News August 2013: Temporarily Dark

The bar was reported to be dark at the start of August. This turned out be a closure for staff meeting to 'resolve a few staffing issues'. The owner has stated that the bar will continue and indeed it was open at the usual time on the next evening.

  Review August 2012: A Quick Look

I stopped by at prime time to check on the bar now that Phil has moved onto Baby Dolls.

The bar seemed to be doing quite nicely with: a fair spattering of customers; a particularly lively group in one of the bays; and most of the dancing points being occupied. The area with the large stage was pretty much deserted by customers though.

There was some decent looking girls. And the dress code averages just one piece.

For some reason the naughty table was lacking in custom. There were a few props at hand suggesting that the naughtiness continues when the demand arises.

New manager John stopped by with a friendly greeting.

There were some friendly service girls on hand too.

All seemed well except for just one thing. The dancers were spread a bit thinly and there weren't enough girls left on hostess duty to share a drink with. Actually this is more or less a permanent characteristic of X-Zone so I have rarely stayed for more than a quick look.

So I moved rapidly downstairs to the rather Good Club Relaxxx, where there were enough girls on hand to tempt to stay for the rest of the evening.

  Review April 2012: More than Just One Table

X Zone has long been noted for trumping Pattaya's 'hands on' bars by being 'hands in'. Their very naughty show table is certainly something that draws both custom and comment. But actually the rest of the bar was nothing to write home about.

Now moves are afoot to make the bar add up to more than just the one table. On a weekday visit at about 10:30pm the bar was notably more busy than on previous visits. And it was noticeable that customers throughout the bar were enjoying themselves, many with friendly girls sitting on their laps.

I also noticed that Phil, previously at Windmill, was on hand to coordinate the welcome revival. The ethos at Windmill is that the girls are very proactive in the intensive customer care department. It's a policy that is pretty much a sure fire hit with customers, but it takes a fair bit of managerial effort and the right set of girls to make it work.

And it seems to be working at X-Zone. If anything the bar now needs to find a few more girls as so many were busy hostessing when they are not dancing. I was told that this was down to a post Songkran dip in the number of girls and that generally the bar has a few more hostesses on hand.

One of the recent improvements has been to reduce that dance roster down to a fixed 20 minutes. Always a wise move for a bar concentrating on hostessing. Only the 'watching bars' can get away with long dance rosters. Generally a customer with a girl on his lap wants her back there as soon as possible.

Another change since my last visit was that there were quite a few couples, presumably East European. They seemed to be  enjoying the lively atmosphere. I guess they were probably busy anticipating some good tales to tell their mates back home about the naughty show table.

Anyway things are looking good at X-Zone.

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.

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