The Climax Band return for a residency at Utopia on Walking Street
Link Here

utopia with climax The Climax Band featuring that ace guitarist Petit will be returning to a residency at Utopia in Walking Street on Monday 1st September performing nightly from 9pm.

I have been following Peit and his band for seven years now when they started at the now closed Climax Bar in Walking Street, Pattaya. When the Climax Bar closed, Steve Young gave them a new home further along Walking Street at UTOPIA. This continued for some time till Peit and Steve had a disagreement and the band left this lucrative residency to appear at various bars in Pattaya before settling in at the Toy Bar on Second Road.

Richie, the original drummer with the Climax Band, passed away Thursday 28th November 2013. He was a lovely guy and I miss him lots.

Though Steve Young and Peit had their disagreement they kept in touch and now Steve has invited Peit to return to Utopia as resident band starting on 1st September 2014. They have been rehearsing the new line up and I dropped in on one of their rehearsals and have to say it is a pretty exciting band. Jun who has been Peit's Bass Guitarist for the last 15 years has decided to not to join them as he will concentrate on his day job as a teacher but he told me last night he will pop in from time to time to Utopia for guest appearances.

Pattaya police and officials say they are attempting to shake off the 'sin city' tag
Link Here
Thai Police logo The Bangkok Post has published an article claiming that Pattaya officials are racing to clean up the resort's beaches and vice spots to try to shake off the sin city tag and prevent the military stepping in as they have done in Phuket and Hua Hin.

First among the targets of city officials and the new police chief are chair renters on the beach and street-walking prostitutes. Lady boy sex workers claim they have already been targeted in a wave of police crackdowns.

Pol Col Suppatee Boonkrong, deputy commander of Chon Buri Provincial Police, who took over as acting head of Pattaya City Police on June 3 in the wake of the coup, said he was aiming to eradicate all prostitution:

I want to completely change the image of Pattaya from being sin city to a friendly town that everyone can enjoy., Safety is our number one concern and that is what we are trying to bring back to the town.

He conceded that there weren't enough police officers to tackle street prostitution so they were being assisted by police volunteers in night-time sweeps. Typically, they were sending out groups of two to four police accompanied by four to eight volunteers in vans and trucks. The volunteers have no arrest powers, but can help compile evidence by taking videos, Pol Col Suppattee said.

Pattaya City deputy mayor Ronakit Ekasingh said they were trying to keep things under control to prevent the National Council for Peace and Order taking over the situation as they did in Phuket and Hua Hin .

Another GoGo takes shape on Walking Street
Link Here
infinity There's another new GoGo taking shape on Walking Street. Infinity A-GoGo , will appear at the previous location of the Italian restaurant L' Italiano (which has now moved opposite AlcatraZ).

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

If my memory serves, that restaurant was very cramped, so I expect some kind of reissue of Submarine A-GoGo, be it probably much longer.

There are reports of ownership connections with Oscars on Soi LK Metro.

 

29th August

 Updated: A New Moon...

Moonlight A-GoGo re-opens
Link Here
moonlight sexy girl Moonlight A-GoGo has re-opened in the Covent Garden Complex on Soi 16 a few paces off Walking Street.

The GoGo opened on 16th November 2013 but closed on 16th January 2014. The venue had previously been Club Relaxxx, and before that, Club Sin City, Black & White, Taboo and Babewatch.

There are now 82 bars around Pattaya featuring Thai girls dancing in bikinis or less.

 Updated: Recycled Glass...

Glass House A-GoGo set to re-open

  Glass House neon The Glass House A-GoGo on Walking Street is set to re-open on 1st September.

The bar was last named Ginza II and was closed as a result of a police raid. It never re-opened and was sold to new owners. It has now re-opened under its original name Glasshouse. It is under new management and now has ownership connections with Wildcats.

There will then be 82 bars around Pattaya featuring Thai girls dancing in bikinis or less.

  Tea Total Dictatorship...

Thailand's military dictators demand midnight closing and ban all drinks promotions including Happy Hours
Link Here
singha beer Thailand's military junta has warned that it intends to enforce harsh measures regulating the advertising and promotion of alcohol, in a move that will affect thousands of businesses throughout the country.

Under the newly enforced rules all alcohol products must carry health warnings, sales are banned to anyone under the age of 20, and initiatives promoting alcohol -- such as happy hours, free ice and mixers, and the use of beer girls -- are banned.

No drinking is allowed after midnight in bars or restaurants, even though sales have ended; no alcohol logos are allowed on glasses, ashtrays and other paraphernalia; and bars will not be allowed to display posters or bottles -- even old ones -- featuring such logos.

Bar staff cannot wear T-shirts with alcohol logos, and it is illegal to promote events such as wine and beer tastings. Alcohol logos - or even images accepted as representative of brands, such as a deer head for Benmore or red stars for Heineken - are not allowed to be displayed in sponsorship or any kind of advertising or promotion.

Promoting alcohol through word of mouth is also illegal, so if a waiter is asked to recommend a particular brand of beer he would be breaking the law if he responds. All printed photographs of glasses or bottles in the media must have visible brands and logos blurred.

Fines range between 2,500 for non-cooperation with inspectors and 500,000 baht if beverage companies promote and advertise their alcohol illegally. There are also punishments of up to six months in jail for various offences.

Update: Not yet national

28th August 2014.

The new doesn't seem to have made any national newspapers so maybe this is an action local to Chiang Mai.

  Bars from the Dark Side...

Supatta Cafe, Black Angels bar, Michel Happy Bar
Link Here
supatta cafe Supatta Caf é

On the left-hand side of Soi Nern Plab Wahn when coming from Sukhumvit Road, about a hundred metres before Pussy Cat, Supatta Caf é Bar & Guesthouse has opened.

It is owned by Paul from Dendermonde (Belgium) and his Thai wife Supatta (nickname Daeng).

It is rather spacious with a blue pool table and red stools and will also have rooms for rent. On the wall is a big Flemish Lion flag.

At the moment Daeng and her sister are serving and it is not clear if it will evolve into a girlie bar.

Note that Soi Nern Plab Wahn is also known as Sukhumvit Pattaya Soi 53 and Soi Map Yai Lia. Nern Plab Wahn is also spelt in many different ways in English, such as Noneplubwan.

Bottled Heineken 70 baht.

Black Angels Bar

On the left-hand side of Soi Lablae (aka Soi Nern Plab Wahn Soi 31, etc.) when coming from Soi Nern Plab Wahn, halfway between Soi Nern Plab Wahn and Top Cool Retreat, is Black Angels Bar.

It is a very minimalistic single-shophouse bar owned by a Thai lady and her Thai husband.

There were two girls: a 20-year old one who had worked at Joy Joy Bar on Soi Siam Country Club and a 30-year old very shy and probably farm-fresh one. The older one looked better than the younger one but the language barrier and the shyness were insurmountable.

Barfine 300 baht, no ST rooms. I was told a room at the 24 Hr motel next to Ying Bar was 280 baht.

Bottled Heineken 60 baht.

Michel Happy Bar

On the right-hand side of Soi Khao Noi Soi 9, when coming from Soi Khao Noi, some 100-200 metres past New Bar and Golden Gate Bar, is Michel Happy Bar.

It is a small bar with a terrace.

Most girls are fat and the other ones are grannies. The cashier is a 22-year old tomboy.

Bottled Heineken 70 baht.

  Halo For Sale...

On Walking Street
Link Here
halo Halo Club is located towards the Beach Road end of Walking Street

Halo has now put up the sign: SALE - RENT . It's still open as a bar. Just an ordinary beer bar though, there haven't been any coyote dancers last 2 or 3 months.

The venue was previously Snowice coyote bar and then GoGo, Voodoo A-GoGo, and the Nok beer bar complex. None of the ideas seems to have been very successful.

 

21st August

  Time Served...

Ginza re-opens on Walking Street

ginza Ginza A-GoGo on Walking Street has re-opened after a 6o day police closure.

There are now 81 bars around Pattaya with Thai girls dancing in bikinis or less.

  Pattaya Blues...

Blues Factory closes
Link Here
Blues Factory logo The Blues Factory off Walking Street has closed on Friday 15th August 2014. This long running venue, which has had some of the best bands in Pattaya, closed after the owner decided to move back to the UK. Mary and the Snowman are now playing at Mood Cafe on Pratamnak Soi 6.

Harem Flatrate Sensation on Soi Diamond was closed on Sunday 17th August 2014. It seems that the bar will install a jacuzzi, raise the single-girl formula from 1,000 to 1,200 baht and give up the multiple-girl formula.

Meanwhile the greeters at sister bar, Harem A Go Go on Walking Street, have been showing a signs Harem 2 Chang beer 75 @ all night and Harem 2 Singha beer 75 @ all night ; probably bottles rather than the draft previously reported.

Fun Seeker Dance Club on Soi 6 seems now to be permanently closed. Also the neighbouring Mandarin is not a gogo anymore, it is now just a beer bar with ladyboys. The only remaining gogo on Soi 6 is Passion Dance Club, albeit with broken neon signs and without nudity.

So now there are 80 bars in the Pattaya area with Thai girls dancing in bikinis or less.

  Malibu Red...

A first look at the new Club Malibu
Link Here

club mailbu sign On Soi LK Metro the newly opened gogo Malibu shares its facade with Champagne.

It has a modern looking central stage with five chrome poles on it and fixed barstools around it. On the left-hand side is one row of bench seating and on the right-hand side two rows.

Most of the dancers were clad in red bikinis in different shapes and sizes; some of them were topless. The quality of the girls was average at best, in the age bracket of 20 to 40 years.

Sometimes there were five dancers on stage, sometimes two and sometimes nobody at all. I saw a lousy, not even lesbian , show with two body-painted fatties.

It seems one team of dancers works from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m. and another one from 8.30 p.m. until closing time between 3 and 4 a.m.

I heard the bikini dancers are paid 12,000 baht a month and the topless ones 15,000 baht.

The music was way too loud.

At a given moment my check-bin had disappeared. I called the waitresses and they concluded that my neighbour had probably, unknowingly, paid my bill. An embarrassing story.

Barfines were 600 baht.

Bottled Heineken 120 baht.

 

18th August

  Lights Out...

At Lighthouse and Harem Flatrate
Link Here
lighthouse dark Lighthouse A-GoGo on Walking Street closed last night at 11pm because of small fire.

Nobody was injured in Lighthouse but one man in Lobster Pot who breathed much smoke was taken to hospital.

Meanwhile Harem Flatrate on Soi Diamond has closed for one month for renovation. Dancers and staff have moved to Harem A-GoGo on Walking Street.

Assuming that Lighthouse will be re-opening immediately, then there are now 81 bars around Pattaya with Thai girls dancing in bikinis or less.

Also on Walking Street, Harem is now doing draft beer at 75 baht.

It opened as a beer bar in the last year, (I think). Bar fines were then 300B. It changed to a coyote bar on the 1st August,  and bar fines are now 800B.

The location was previously Happy Net, an internet cafe (See on Google Streetview )

I saw 4 coyotes on the stage, and other 8 coyotes were in and out of the bar. I was the only customer all the time.

Soft drinks : 85B bottled beer : 125B (Heineken : 145B) lady drinks : 150B
