The first month the King's mourning period has now ended and bars are set to resume more normal operation. The Walking Street GoGos will
now be closing 3am. Presumably the opening times will revert to the normal 8pm, or thereabout
Several dancers from the defunct World Wide A-GoGo on Beach Road have relocated to Silver Star A-GoGo on Soi 8.
Lita Bar , the ladyboy bar that had closed on Soi BJ off Walking Street, has reopened on Soi Post Office (Soi 13/2).
Off Third Road, in a soi more or less opposite Soi 33 (where Le Carré Blanc used to be), a smallish bar has opened: Geisha Club Bar Hôtesses .
The door was opened before I could ring the doorbell.
Most girls were in their late thirties and wearing big bras and big pants under their chaste dresses. No nudity, nothing special on offer. No other customers.
I saw a coaster of a Belgian beer Keizer Karel . (Emperor Charles V was an enthusiastic beer drinker and already legendary during his lifetime. His Antwerp residence Prinsenhof (Prince's Court) now houses the main campus of Universiteit Antwerpen.
When he later moved from the Low Countries to Spain a number of brew masters accompanied him.)
Barfine (room included) 300 baht, full service (no anal) 1,000 baht.
Bottled Heineken 105 baht, lady drinks (cola on the rocks) 130 baht, a tad expensive for the kind of venue.
By comparison: at Working Girl on Soi 6 the new prices are 89 baht for bottled Heineken and 125 baht for lady drinks.
