And fun at Babydolls
Link Here

Babydolls design 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.

I had a shock when I popped into Sweethearts on the same night,

Topless Girls,

It was a very pleasant surprise.

And another item of news. The Vault Hotel on Pratamnak near Soi Marine Plaza is closing on 1st December 2014. It was a hotel that particularly appealed to bar finers and will be well missed.

Pattaya Food Reviews: Due Cafe

due cafe Due (Italian for two I guess) is a Belgian owned restaurant on the left-hand side of Soi Siam Country Club, about halfway between Butterfly Bar and La Guinguette and more or less opposite SP Village 5.

There is a small car park in front of it.

AFAIK it is the only decent restaurant at the Dark Side since the disappearance of Manneken Pis.

It is slightly more expensive than most restaurants in Pattaya, but the portions are very generous and the beef is of top quality.

They also have pizzas on offer and their bread appears to be baked in the pizza oven.

Bottled Heineken 80 baht, chicken-vegetable soup 130 baht, beef tenderloin with chips (American French fries ) and sauce of your choice 375 baht.

vikings corner bar On the corner of Third Road and Soi 19 Vikings Corner Bar has opened.

It is a long, narrow bar with two open sides.

It is owned by Tom from Norway who also owns The Place 2 Bee on Soi Lengkee.

Manager is Roger from Belgium who previously was the manager at The Place 2 Bee and before that owned a bar on Soi Buakhaow.

Several girls from The Place 2 Bee have been transferred to Vikings Corner Bar.

Personally I prefer The Place 2 Bee to Vikings Corner Bar.

Bottled Heineken 70 baht (at The Place 2 Bee 85 baht).

  An unwanted buffet...

Pattaya Bar Reviews: Heaven Gentleman's Club
Link Here

heaven gentlemens lounge logo Heaven Gentlemen's Lounge, previously Times Lounge, is located on Soi Kasetsin Soi 11.

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

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

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

This club is built around an outdoor swimming pool.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  Very Crowded...

Pattaya Bar Reviews: Kinnaree Place
Link Here

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

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

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

The music being played was rock and not too loud.

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

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

Barfine, room included, 350 baht.

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

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

  Intimate Corners...

Pattaya Bar Reviews: Jade Club

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

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

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

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

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

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

Barfine, room included, 300 baht.

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

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

  Solid Silver...

Patttaya GoGo Reviews: Silver Star
Link Here

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  Great Time...

Pattaya GoGo Reviews: AlcatraZ
Link Here
Alcatraz sign AlcatraZ A-GoGo is located on Walking Street between sois 14 & 15. The bar 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.

  Backroom Jobs...

Pattaya Bar Reviews: Angel Bar Beer
Link Here

backroom Angel Bar Beer on Soi Khao Noi opposite Soi 9 appears to be owned by a French-language Belgian.

Many girlie bars at the Dark Side are owned by French-language Belgians nowadays: among them also Aqua Deymie, Dao Bar, KiK Bar, Mango Pub, Saxo Bar and until recently Blue Cat.

Often, before dark, the (not so young) girls at Angel Bar Beer are sitting/ eating outside and only one gets in when a customer arrives.

There are not many girls and some of them (read: the slightly younger ones) seem to be unavailable for whatever reason.

A 40-year old one complained that most customers only want to boomboom mouth , not boomboom pussy and that, although she was horny, she only got satisfied once or twice a month.

She also told she had until recently worked at the family business producing Thai style funerary monuments. So, from caring for the dead she went to caring for the living.

Barfine for ST is 300 baht at Angel Bar Beer. In the ST bar fine free use of a spacious room and separate bathroom upstairs is included.

Some girls however prefer the backroom downstairs. In this room there are some very cheap sofas and coffee tables. As there is no shower downstairs, the dick cleaning is performed orally. Fans of deep French kissing are warned.

Bottled Heineken 75 baht, lady drinks 110 baht.

  Dreaming of Success...

Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Dream Club
Link Here

Dream Club A-GoGo sign 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.

pacha On Soi Khao Talo Soi 9, about three kilometres from Sukhumvit Road, Pacha has opened at the location that was Blue Cat Bar before, next to KiK Bar.

For the location of bars on the Dark Side this map , albeit not always 100% correct and up to date, can help.

Pacha appears to be French owned.

Not much, if anything, has changed inside.

Not many girls and no top models at all, but thank goodness no ladyboys this time.

An old girl was very horny and wanted to go upstairs for a mere 500 baht.

ST rooms at 300 baht, barfine included.

Bottled Heineken 80 baht.

Pattaya bar Reviews: Rioja

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

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

The premises are shaped like a Spanish style villa.

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

The music was not too loud.

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

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

Barfine (ST room included) 350 baht.

Bottled Heineken 80 baht.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Bottled Heineken 120 baht.

  Fluorescent yellow...

Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Oscars

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

happy moons Happy Moon Bar is a new closed bar on the left-hand side of upper Soi Khao Talo when coming from Sukhumvit Road, just past Soi 13, the closed bar Bird Cage and the open bar Full Moon Bar and more or less opposite Soi 18.

It has a rather Spartan layout with some stools around the bar counter, a pool table and a coffee table with two small sofas.

The other customers were three older Germans and a Thai policeman.

The girls were around 30 years old and average at best.

Behind the building Happy Moon Bar shares a (muddy) car park with Bird Cage and Full Moon Bar.

If you need not fear the home front you better park your car on Soi Khao Talo.

As the girl sitting next to me said she did not like the job and wanted to quit I did not enquire about barfines and rooms.

Bottled Heineken 70 baht.

  Remembering a long gone era...

Pattaya Bar Reviews: La Guinguette

la guinguette sign As it was about two years ago I had visited La Guinguette (mind the spelling) I decided to pay them a visit. 

La Guinguette is located on Soi 27 off Soi Siam Country Club, on the corner of sub-soi 12.

It is easy to find as there is a big sign on the corner of Soi Siam Country Club and Soi 27.

When I arrived there was not a single car or motorbike outside and also the car park at the other side of Soi 27 was empty.

I entered through the open front door, walked through the deserted garden with umbrellas and near the smallish swimming pool I found three fully clothed fatties, one of them the Thai owner, and a boring white dog.

It is no longer French owned.

In a long bygone era they had ST rooms at 300 baht (barfine included).

Bottled Heineken 80 baht.

  Old Fashioned GoGo...

Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Club Nevada
Link Here

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

It opens from the early afternoon until around midnight.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Heineken draught 65 baht, bottled Heineken 120 baht.

  Third Rate...

pe pe club 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.

  A one gin palace...

Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Palace
Link Here

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.

  Fun on the Strip...

Listing the bars of Ban Chang
Link Here
  one ban chang I visited Ban Chang once again.

On the stretch Pattaya-Sattahip I have seen white bahtbuses and on the stretch Sattahip-Rayong orange ones. Near Sattahip I have also seen a yellow and a light green one. On the stretch Pattaya-Rayong I have seen several white minibuses with a lot of Thai text on them zigzagging from left to right and from right to left, which seemed to be some kind of regular service.

Some bars on the Ban Chang strip were completely lacking girls (Happy Beer Bar 2) or looked deserted (Rainbow Bar), whereas other bars had about ten girls, including the odd ladyboy.

All Ban Chang girlie bars seem to apply the same price structure: bottled Heineken 80 baht, lady drink 90 baht, barfine ST or LT 300 baht (if ST usually room included). Ladies' fees up to 1,000 baht ST, up to 1,500 baht LT.

I compiled an up-to-date survey of all bars, pubs and hotels on the Ban Chang strip , arranged by location:

Soi Tessaban 25 west side (from south to north):

2 star Star Bar is a single-shophouse bar on the left-hand side of Soi Khao Talo, halfway between the Booze Lounge and Mini Bar and opposite the old market.

The British owner insists on playing music of the customer's choice.

The seating inside around the pool table is rather cramped.

When I arrived there were a fat girl, a new 18-year old girl and a chubby, but funny and available cashier.

The young girl who had started the same day was shy and not into bedroom sports at all. She was completely unshaven and did not look like Pattaya material and I think she will be back on her way to her native Buriram very soon. Later on the fatty told me that girl was still a virgin, never having had sex with her Thai sweetheart.

Shortly before I left I saw a cute girl coming down the stairs with a punter.

Barfines 300 baht ST (room included).

Bottled Heineken 65 baht.

  Diving with the Duke's Mermaid...

News from the Dark Side
Link Here
dukes lounge signs The Duke's Lounge

On the right-hand side of Soi Khao Noi Soi 9 the Dukes Lounge Bar has opened at the venue that used to be Golden Gate Bar.

They have a car park opposite New Bar.

Next to the entrance a Thai guard with a cap was sitting, a very unusual sight at the Dark Side.

The main changes were an unused square stage with chrome handrails in the middle of the bar space and the presence of ST rooms.

The girls were not very young and not precisely top models.

The best looking one of the bunch, who was 38 years old, "tried harder" (think Avis) and stripped almost completely for a couple of 20-baht notes.

Barfines 300 baht ST (room included).

Bottled Heineken 85 baht ("lounge prices" ?).

Mermaid Bar Beer

On Soi Khao Noi, left of Mango Pub (what a decent name for a Belgian owned girlie bar !), Mermaid Bar Beer has opened in a double shophouse.

The interior is well lit with a bar and stools, a pool table and some mirrors, nothing special.

The best looking girl was the 18-year-old cashier, but she does not seem to be available.

A 22-year-old girl with massive natural boobs and even more massive buttocks told me she had men (short for menstruation), but that she wanted me to come back next week.

Another girl started licking my ear.

The girls were not the most beautiful, but they were friendly enough and not too shy.

Barfines 300 baht ST (room included) and 500 baht LT.

Bottled Heineken 75 baht.

The Dive

When I entered The Dive on Soi Khao Noi four fatties where eating on the terrace. Of those four one was the wife of the English owner and one was the cashier.

Not a place to spend much time and money.

Barfine is 400 baht for ST and for LT; when ST the room is included.

Bottled Heineken 75 baht.

yoing Ying Bar on Soi Lablae (aka Soi Nern Plab Wahn 31, etc.) has become Mac's Bar.

It is still German owned; Mac is the name of the current owner's wife.

As to the interior not much (if anything) has changed and it is still as worn as before, but when it is empty your nose is rubbed in it much more.

They appear to offer some snacks now.

I was the only customer and their only girl inside was a 42-year-old fatty.

This venture looks like one more recipe for disaster.

Barfine (room included) is 300 baht.

Bottled Heineken is still a steep 90 baht (60 baht during happy hour from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m.).

  A Passion for Soi 6...

Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Passion Dance Club
Link Here

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

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

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

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

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

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

The music is very monotonous.

There are also about five hostesses now.

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

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

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

ginza 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 Ginza .

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.

I popped into Happy at midnight and the silly season has begun,2 idiots sitting next to me were giving out 1000 baht tips to the Dancers. I saw one girl get 4000 and another 2000 baht. I'm afraid to say they were English, they must have thought they were in London.

I told them they could boomboom the girls for less but they Ignored me and carried on.

This is bad news for ex-pats like me ,who only pay 1000 baht for boomboom.

  Lost Lustre...

Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Diamond
Link Here

Diamond A-GoGo 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.

  Slightly Worn...

Pattaya Bar Reviews: Bamboo and Casual
Link Here
bamboo dark side Bamboo Bar

Bamboo Bar is the last bar on the right-hand side of Soi Khao Noi before the junction with Soi Khao Talo when coming from Sukhumvit Road.

It is a German owned slightly worn half-open bar with a private car park in green scenery.

At my previous visits I have only seen oldies there, but this time I was greeted by a 22-year-old girl, O from Lopburi.

At first she was very shy and even wanted to switch off the light. Later on she told she had two daughters of three and five years and she showed she could still squeeze some drops of milk from her nipples.

In the past I have been told that the current owner pays the girls a salary of 2,000 baht a month, whereas the former owner paid nothing at all (apart from lodging, tips and shares of lady drinks and barfines), what made the girls virtually freelancers.

Barfine (room included) 300 baht.

Bottled Heineken 70 baht.

Casual Bar

Casual is on the left-hand side of Soi Khao Noi when coming from Sukhumvit Road.

It is opposite Boutique Resort (whatever that may be) and about 200 metres before The Black Sheep.

It is a modest bar-restaurant serving pub grub with a small food shop, not really a girlie bar.

Although the staff are very friendly, they are also very shy and probably not barfineable.

Bottled Heineken 60 baht.

  Bruin Cafe...

lucky time bar Lucky Time Bar is a spacious bruin café (cosy traditional Dutch style pub with snacks) owned by Alex from Maastricht (Netherlands) and his Thai wife Nid from Buriram, who has lived in the Netherlands for many years and has acquired the Dutch nationality.

It is on the right-hand side of Soi Nern Plab Wahn when coming from Sukhumvit Road, about 200 metres past the petrol station.

Although it is Dutch owned most customers appear to be British.

It is not really a place to pick up a barfine.

They have rooms at 500 baht per night.

Bottled Heineken 70 baht.

 Updated: Hot and Cold and Closed...

News from Soi Post Office and a review from the New Malibu Show Bar
Link Here
hot and cold sign Hot & Cold A-GoGo on Soi Post Office (Soi 13/2) seems to have closed, not really a surprise.

There are now 84 bars around Pattaya with Thai girls dancing in bikinis or less

And their neighbour Miami A-GoGo is indeed for sale, be it still in operation.

Beyond (previously Malibu), the transvestite show bar on the corner of Second Road and Soi Post Office (Soi 13/2) opposite Bodega Bar, has been dark last week and some refurbishing is going on.

There is a new sign: The New Malibu Show .

On Sunday evening 21 st September 2014 the activities had resumed.

Many Thai girls like their impersonations.

At my last visit a short fatty, who had come with two farangs, was having a good time.

She went on stage to dance with the transvestites, started to get very familiar and finally lifted the dresses of the performers to check the goodies .

Note that it can get hot there because there is no air conditioning and the fans are not much help.

Bottled Heineken 85 baht (show included).

Update: Hot and Cold and Closed and Sad

28th September 2014. A sad photo from Ishi of (Japanese language)

hot cold closed My last visit was at 8:30pm on 9th September. I did not see any dancers nor any customers in the bar.

  Enjoy young immature raw herring...

Pattaya Food Reviews: Enjoy Andre
Link Here

enjoy andre Recently I have visited Enjoy Andre' restaurant several times.

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

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

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

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

On Fridays they serve fresh sea fish.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Prices are very moderate for the quality offered.

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