Soi 6 police raid sees farang customer handcuffed and carted off to the local nick
Link Here
Thai Police logo Police have been continuing their harassment of bars with short time rooms. The latest victim was Ruby Bar on Soi 6.

Rooms were searched, the cashier was carted off and a farang customer was also handcuffed and carted off.

Surely a bit scary for Pattaya visitors into the naughty stuff but there is a theory doing the rounds that the handcuffed farang was a police snitch, and the handcuffing was meant to provide a bit of a cover story for him.

News from Sois 2, 6 and 7

happiness corner Lek's Classroom on Soi 2; is dark. It seems likely that the operation has been transfered to the new Lek A-GoGo not far away on 2nd Road. Assuming that Lek's Classroom has indeed closed for good, then there are now 84 bars on the Pattaya GoGo list.

Meanwhile on Soi 6, the Hole In One bar is now For Rent .

La La Land has re-opened after refurbishment. The door was removed so as to join the ranks of open bars.

You Twat! bar wisely changed its name to Toy Box .

And on Soi 7 the old Happiness A-GoGo has been changed to an open bar called Happiness Corner Bar .

Openings and closings on Soi LK Metro
Link Here
Club Malibu sign There are rumours spreading among the girls of Soi LK Metro of an upcoming GoGo closure on the soi.

But there are a couple of bars under consideration. In particular Oscars A-GoGo was dark on Thursday night for reasons not yet known.

But the favourite is Club Malibu. It looks set to close at the end of February 2015 because they are running losses.

Police action didn't help either. Remember that, on Valentine's Day, Club Malibu has been raided. At 7 p.m. sharp two pickups with police and military arrived, searched all rooms, checked ID cards and licences and left around 8 p.m. Also on Valentine's Day barfines at Club Malibu were 1,500 baht instead of 600 baht for ordinary bikini dancers with the result that nobody got barfined.

Remember also that, one month ago, after sister gogo Champagne A-GoGo on Soi LK Metro had reopened with their dancers coming back from Club Malibu and after the monthly salary payment more staff left Club Malibu, leaving a total of only six dancers. Fully clothed waitresses had to go on stage.

Rumour has it now that, by Songkran, Bob and his co-owners want to merge Champagne A-GoGo and Club Malibu into a mega gogo.

Whereas a single-shophouse gogo, such as the defunct Submarine A-GoGo, is undeniably too narrow, I doubt if a quadruple-shophouse gogo is a good idea. Already in triple-shophouse gogos, such as Lady Love on Soi LK Metro and Private Dancer A-GoGo on Soi 15, it is difficult to have a good view of the other side. Moreover, such a big gogo risks to look very empty.

But nothing dampens the enthusiasm for opening GoGos in Pattaya. Last night on Soi LK Metro at the previous location of Mai Lu Si bar the LED sign of Kaos was lit and on the facade was a Thai-language list with vacancies and salaries.

Passion neon Recently at Passion Dance Club on Soi 6 I happened to be their only customer.

Two dancers in black bikinis (strings and big tops) were on stage for a very long dance stint.

Whereas usually the idle dancers reserve the bench seating along the street wall as their own, they now were spread along all walls. They were six or seven, most of them fully dressed and all of them busy on their mobiles.

At Passion Dance Club many dancers also go into hiding and only undress for their dance stints.

No nudity.

All-in fun upstairs is 1,300 baht, 300 baht for room and bar and 1,000 baht for the girl. Although the heat is on at the moment and this service may have been discontinued.

BEWARE: the old mamasan (54 years they say, although she looks much older) tries to collect the total amount in advance. On the first floor are five numbered rooms, each with a shower cubicle in a corner.

The toilets are communal however.

Bottled Heineken 115 baht, lady drinks 120 baht.

 Updated: A Little Addition...

Lek A-GoGo opens in north Pattaya
Link Here
lek Lek A-GoGo opened on 2nd Road in North Pattaya on 14th February.

It is located half way between Soi 6 and Big C on the same side of the road as Soi 6. See map .

Presumably the GoGo has connections with the nearby Lek's Classroom which is half coyote and half GoGo).

Meanwhile on Walking Street the GoGo status of Skyfall has been confirmed. Ishi writes:

I visited after 10:30pm last week and counted 77 dancers on the Mamasan's board. Of these, I saw 10 topless dancers who are called Models. So I think it qualifies as an A-GoGo bar now.

So there are now 86 GoGos around Pattaya with Thai girls dancing in bikinis or less. Although a couple are on notice of being relegated to coyote bar.

Update: Little prices

17th February 2015. Thanks to Ishi

I visited after 9pm and counted 10 dancers on the Mamasan's board. Of these, I saw 6 in white bikinis and 4 were coyote. Some of them are from Lek's Classroom Soi 2 which opens as usual on the same day.

Soft drinks are  80 Baht and Bottled Heineken is 120 Baht

  Gone to Hell...

Coyote Club is permanently closed

coyote club sign Coyote Club near the Beach Rd end of Walking Street was reported dark on the 13th February. It now seems that the closure is permanent and the staff have been paid off.

The bar opened in early June last year.

Once can't help but think that it was note a wise move to label the bar as 'coyote' when the general preference is for less clothes. Perhaps the originally suggested name of Hades Club would have been better.

There are now 85 bars around Pattaya with Thai girls dancing in bikinis or less.

  Dark Days...

Openings and closings around Pattaya
Link Here

coyote club sign Yesterday on Walking Street Coyote Club was dark.

Also yesterday Montana Bar and Lounge on Regional Land Road was dark as well, not sure if this is permanent. [The management probably know that it is a prime target for police raids].

On Soi LK Metro White Room has been closed for some time already.

On Soi Khao Talo on the Dark Side, about a kilometre from Sukhumvit Road, Boom's Bar has become AJ's BAR.

On Soi Khao Noi Welcome Inn, Go Gress, Mermaid Bar Beer and Red Lion Pub & Restaurant have closed.

However, Angel Bar Beer, also on Soi Khao Noi, has reopened. Whereas the previous owner was a tiny, nervous Frenchman, the new owner, Thomas, is a tall, Mediterranean Frenchman from Toulon.

After a stint as the queen of ST at The Booze Lounge on Soi Khao Talo, Rose has returned to her previous job at Angel Bar Beer as the sexiest cashier of the Dark Side and perhaps of all Pattaya. Apart from Rose and the owner's wife there were only fatties at Angel Bar Beer.

That being said, 90% of all Dark Side bar girls are fatties in the 24-48 age bracket, also at places such as Dao Bar. Whenever you see a person who looks nice and slim at first sight, the odds are it is the occasional ladyboy.

On Soi Khao Noi Soi 9 New Bar had been re-baptised Clover Bar by the new management, but still the same fatties were sitting outside.

On Soi Nern Plab Wahn Soi 28 Moon Light Bar Beer has disappeared.

On Soi Siam Country Club Belgian owned Due Cafe has been replaced by Russian owned Siam Cafe.

On Soi Siam Country Club Soi 27 La Guinguette went dark.

Along the eastern bank of Mabprachan Lake, off Soi Siam Country Club, several bars have disappeared and several other ones have been renamed, but Peet Bar and The Barking Frog have survived. Anyway, that is not an area to venture when you are horny.

Champagne A-GoGo on Soi LK Metro has reopened with their dancers coming back from sister gogo Club Malibu. After the monthly salary payment more staff have left Club Malibu, leaving a total of only six dancers. Fully clothed waitresses had to go on stage.

  Scary Thailand...

Police and army drag farang tourists down to the local nick for an identity check, just for drinking in bars which fall victim to police raids
Link Here
Thai Police logo The police have been getting heavy recently with large amounts of raids, particularly targeted at day time venues linked to prostitution, in the unlikely hope of uncovering victims of trafficking.

The latest victim was raided by the police on Thursday. A team of Banglamung District Licensing employees and Army personnel conducted the raid at the Club 4 Bar off Soi Arunothai, just before 6pm and found many foreign patrons inside.

A total of 9 women, who appeared to be employed by the venue were taken aside and checked. Nothing untoward was found and all the women were over 18 and were not in possession of illegal drugs. Some were urine tested for drugs and they all passed the test.

Rooms on the second floor were searched and nothing untoward was found. However, checks on the venues licenses did reveal problems and these issues have been reported. No evidence of sex and drugs parties could be found but a report of the raid has been sent to the Governor of Chonburi Province who may impose a closure order on the venue in relation to the licensing problems found.

Previously M Club was raided in central Pattaya and the farang customers were rounded up and sent to the local police station where their identity papers were checked. Surely an exceptionally scary experience for those unlucky drinkers.

  A Little New GoGo...

lek Lek A-GoGo is set to open on 2nd Road in North Pattaya on 14th February.

It is located half way between Soi 6 and Big C on the same side of the road as Soi 6. See map .

Presumably the GoGo has connections with the nearby Lek's Classroom which is half coyote and half GoGo), but this is just guesswork.

Meanwhile Coyote Club on Walking Street has gone dark for reasons not yet apparent.

And on Soi 6 the Corner Bar is undergoing massive building work. The builders are also in at La La Land.

  In the wake of a raid...

Pattaya Bar Reviews: Heaven Gentlemen's Lounge
Link Here

heaven gentlemens lounge logo Last Tuesday around 5 p.m. the gate was closed at Heaven Gentlemen's Lounge (previously Times Lounge) on Soi Kasetsin Soi 11 although I had seen three farangs entering just before I parked my car.

Suddenly the (electric) gate was opened and it was closed again after I got in.

(At that moment I was not aware of the police raid on the previous day).

Inside there was no music and no air conditioning. I only saw about six passive chicks and the three farangs, probably Scandinavians.

When I asked what was going on, I was told the manager was sick . Perhaps the manager's illness was related to the police raid on the previous evening.

Anyway, there were much fewer than 100 patrons and by far nobody looked younger than 20 years.

When I left the gate was opened and immediately closed again.

Bottled Heineken still 90 baht.

  Dreaming Double...

Dream Club changes hands and pricing

Dream Club A-GoGo sign Dream Club is a GoGo on Soi Diamond.

The bar has now been sold but the previous manager has stayed on.

The bar is now offering all drinks sold in pairs. The all night promotion is sold as 2 for 1 on all customer drinks, but not quite as a good as it sounds, as the single price is higher than most. But nevertheless a very good offer at 2 bottled beers for 165 Baht.

Super Girl Super Girl recently closed after a long stint on Soi Diamond

Now a (New) Super Girl is aiming to re-open by the end of April.

The new managers are Japanese and Thai. One Japanese boss is a co-owner of Crazy House in Bangkok.

They want to recruit over 60 Kawaii (Japanese : lovable, cute or adorable) Girls from Pattaya and Bangkok.

More closures than openings in the latest bar news
Link Here

champagne sign It is clear that at this moment many gogos and many other bars are struggling to survive.

Last Sunday evening around 11 p.m. Naughty Girls on Soi Diamond, the defunct Super Girl's neighbour, was still open and shortly after midnight they were closed.

Champagne A-GoGo and Club Malibu , both on Soi LK Metro, are laying off most of their staff and limiting their operations to one shift only, from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m.

Apart from lady drinks quota, Champagne A-GoGo and Club Malibu also have a very elaborate fine system and this is not limited to arriving at work late, not going on stage in time or failing to present a medical certificate. Staff who are late at the meeting on the first Monday of the month at 4 p.m. are fined 500 baht. Those who do not show up at this monthly event are fined 2,000 baht.

After recent police raids earlier this week all Champagne staff were moved to Club Malibu.

The Lounge Bar behind the car park ( The Square ) on the corner of Phratamnak Road and Soi 3 is permanently closed and their website cannibalised. Their neighbouring Biker-Pub was open however, but there were neither customers, nor girls inside and the only beer available was Leo.

On Soi Khopai Soi 10 both Thai Fun Club and (Tokyo) KIDS VIP (previously Secret Garden) seemed to be closed.

I still wonder if and when long skinny Brian is going to open his Kaos (apparently no longer Chaos) A-GoGo on Soi LK Metro at the previous location of Belgian owned Mai Lu Si bar.

  Raiding Parties...

Heaven Gentlemen's Club falls victim to a Thai police 'crackdown' on prostitution
Link Here
Thai Police logo The Commissioner-General of the Royal Thai Police has instructed all police units to arrest illegal entertainment venues nationwide in an effort to prevent prostitution?

Police Spokesman Pol Lt Gen Prawut Thawornsiri said they were a great number of entertainment venues, such as night clubs, karaoke bars and restaurants, involved in prostitution and human trafficking. The national police chief therefore ordered all police units to enforce all related laws against the crime, especially child prostitution.

Those who recommitted prostitution and human trafficking would face stronger charges and police officials who did not take the crime seriously were subject to investigation.

And it seems that Pattaya's police have been responding to the call.

In the early hours of Sunday police from Pattaya and Banglamung were busy raiding bars suspected of employing Thai and foreign nationals for the purposes of prostitution.

Police from Pattaya focused their efforts on bars situated in Soi 8 off the Tepprasit Road, which cater mostly for Thai customers and their Banglamung colleagues conducted raids on the South Naklua Area (presumably referring to the Soi Esso area on Sukhumvit not far from the Bangkok Pattaya Hospital) which is also known as an area frequented mostly by Thai customers. Both areas are well away from the regular tourist bar areas in Pattaya.

Age & Nationality checks were made on staff members of the bars and licenses were checked in each of the venues. Banglamung Police did arrest 14 women who were found working in Karaoke Bars in the area but they were fined and later released.

On Monday Night, District employees, assisted by the Thai Army and local Police, continued to visit Bars and other entertainment venues in the Pattaya area in search of those engaging in Prostitution and venues which supposedly engage in Human Trafficking.

The first victim of the night was Heaven Gentleman's Lounge in Soi Kasetsin 11 off the Pratamnuk Road in South Pattaya. The raid took place just before 7pm and over 50 officers entered the Lounge, which is a converted 2-storey luxury home with swimming pool. There were more than 100 patrons inside, both Thai and Foreign, who were split-up while officers conducted ID checks.

Licensing irregularities were found and patrons under the age of 20 were inside the venue. No evidence of Prostitution or Human Trafficking was found but the venue is expected to receive a 30 day closure order according to officials who conducted the raid.

 Updated: Less Happiness...

GoGo closures
Link Here
happiness agogo A post on the Pattaya forums reveals that Happiness A-GoGo is set to close this weekend. The GoGo is located at about the centre of Soi 7. The closure seems to be attributed to falling business. The bar has been operating since June 2012.

Meanwhile Naughty Girls on Soi Diamond is also dark. Reasons are unknown as yet, but a guess would be that it is linked to recent police raids on the soi.

Update: Closure confirmed

2nd February 2015. Thanks to Ishi of (Japanese language)

Happiness duly closed with poor trade being the most likely reason. The girls have moved to the Happiness Stars beer bar.

Meanwhile Naughty Girls is continuing albeit sometimes closing early at around midnight.

So there are now 85 bars around Pattaya with Thai girls dancing in bikinis or less. However a couple of the bars listed seem all coyote and may soon be demoted from the list.
