Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Tiger Club

tiger sign Tiger club recently re-opened on Soi Diamond access via stairs off Walking Street.

I popped into Tiger Club Tuesday night.

It is a very strange layout. It has single Dancers, all on small stages, with high chairs and tables for customers scattered around the room. You can only look at one or two girls.

The dance routines are very long with the girl doing a gradual strip.

The girls were attractive, but a very odd place.

  Happy on Soi 7...

Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Silver Star 2 and Happiness
Link Here

silverstar 2 Silver Star 2 A-GoGo is located at the Beach Road end of Soi 7

I popped into Silver Star 2 on Monday night.

It was very lively. There were 10 virtually naked girls on stage, and 2 naked girls in the bath tub,

The standard of girl was not as high as on previous visits, but there were some pretty ones, and all hands on fun was happening.

All staff were very friendly. Well worth a visit.

Lady Drinks were 125 and draft beer 72 (half pint)

Happiness A-GoGo is at the middle of the same soi.

I popped into Happiness Agogo on the same night,

It was very quiet only 3 punters and 8 girls. All the girls were overweight, although still attractive,

The music was good but a little too loud.

With more girls, it would be ok.

Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Gentlemen's Club
Link Here

gentlemens club 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).

Club Mistys

I popped into Club Misty's on Friday night.

It's under new management, Brian from New Living Dolls has taken over. He has a big job on his hands,

There were a few attractive Bikini Dancers and 2 topless girls, but they are too far from the seating areas.

There were no girls dancing on the tables and only 3 punters,

There was no interaction with the girls and very little atmosphere.

Sugar Sugar Sugar Sugar

On Saturday night, I visited LK Metro and Sugar Sugar.

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

The best coffee I've had anywhere in Thailand.

Kiss A-GoGo

Then onto Kiss on the same soi.

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

le private soi lengkee Le Private is a French owned beer bar on Soi Lengkee.

It often happens that no girls are sitting outside and the (sliding) doors are closed to save on air conditioning.

Inside were more (mostly French speaking) customers than girls and a lot of cigarette smoke.

The (mostly Thai-Khmer) girls were sub-average as usual, but not too unfriendly.

Barfine ST 300 baht (air conditioned room included).

Bottled Heineken 90 baht.

venus love lounge Venus Love Lounge on Third Road just north of Pattaya Klang seems to open intermittently.

Apparently they open at 2 p.m. and close early when they run out of girls .

When I arrived around 8 p.m. the bar was nearly deserted, no other customers.

A 30-year old girl from Ubon Ratchathani was not too unfriendly, but did not understand (let alone speak) a single word of English; perhaps she was farm fresh from the Thai karaoke circuit.

The new, ugly and not so young mamasan told me she had lived for two years in my home city and could even speak some words of Dutch, albeit hardly understandable.

When I put forward I did not see the beauties from their Facebook page, she tried to make me believe four better looking girls had been barfined and taken to some islands for a week.

Barfine ST 300 baht (room included), LT a steep 800 baht.

Bottled Heineken 90 baht, lady drinks 100 baht.

All staff are very friendly and a good time is guaranteed, unless you're a cheap Charlie.

Pattaya Food Reviews: Bier Stuble
Link Here

bier stuble sign One of my favourite restaurants in Pattaya is German owned and long established Bier Stüble on Soi 7.

(Bier means beer and Stüble is a diminutive of Stube , a cosy room; " herein in die gute Stube " means something like "welcome to my place").

With a bit of luck you can hear the "beat" of their neighbours Silver Star 2 A-GoGo.

They have excellent soups, such as Linsensuppe (German style, not Indian or Arab style, green lentil soup), Nudelsuppe (German style, not Thai style, noodle soup with scrambled eggs) and Leberknödelsuppe (liver dumpling soup), a typical Bavarian dish.

Among their main dishes are Sauerbraten (marinated, braised beef) with Rotkohl (red cabbage) or salad and Spätzle (typical egg and flour noodles) or potatoes, and Kaßler (slightly smoked, slightly brined, steamed pork loin) with Sauerkraut (fermented white cabbage) and mashed potatoes.

If you order Sauerbraten the waitresses will ask you what you want it with; they have a strange way of pronouncing the word Rotkohl .

Do not hesitate to ask mustard with the Kaßler .

Note that this restaurant is closed in low season for about three and a half months. The owner leaves for Europe in the second half of May and comes back to Pattaya in the first half of September.

The staff are a very friendly bunch.

Bottled Heineken 80 baht, German beers 110-200 baht, soups 110-120 baht, Kaßler 220 baht, Sauerbraten 250 baht.

There were some pretty Girls, but also some very fat and old ones, who would have to pay me 2000 baht for boom boom.

There is still no interaction between girls and punters.

The draft beer was nice, but one to avoid.

Happy hour draft in Sapphire is now 60 Baht.

I happened to be their only customer.

There seem to be five bargirls, but at my visit shortly after 8 p.m. the only other person inside was a 40-year old cashier who told her boyfriend was a Canadian working in Dubai. If I understood well all girls are freelancers who come and go as they please.

Around the terrace a brick wall has been built, but nobody was sitting outside. Only the French windows of the right unit were open.

Inside were a fat cashier and a tall, not very friendly 37-year old bargirl from Bangkok with an ugly face. Two other girls seemed to have been barfined.

  Pretty Soapy...

Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Lady Love
Link Here

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

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

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

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

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

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

The staff were not pushy at all.

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

Loud music.

Decent toilets.

Bottled Heineken 125 baht, during happy hour 75 baht.

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 .

  Impeccable table cloths...

Pattaya Restaurant Reviews: Swiss Food
Link Here

swiss food One of the Swiss restaurants I regularly visit is Swiss Food on Soi Diamond opposite Black Horse and Windmill Club.

It is a very cosy restaurant with impeccable table cloths and napkins.

The background music consists of instrumental versions of popular classical music such as Plaisir d' amour .

The staff are very polite and well trained.

The owners Roland and Stefan (or one of them) are always present.

They have two daily menus: Menu 1 at 290 baht and Menu 2 at 350 baht. Menu 2 also includes a dessert.

As in several Swiss restaurants in Pattaya these menus and also a la carte main dishes include soup and salad bar.

The salad bar at Swiss Food is refrigerated, which is not everywhere the case.

Instead of baguette with garlic butter, you can also get Swiss style Bauernbrot (farmer's bread); just ask your waiter or waitress for brown bread .

Their adjoining bistro remains open until 2 a.m.

Bottled Heineken 95 baht.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

  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.

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.

Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Club Nevada

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.

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.

  A one gin palace...

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.
