Red Door is a short time bar located in the central section of Soi 6
I was well impressed on my first visit to the newest addition to Soi 6.
I can't say that my first impressions were good though. The bar is a double unit but is cavernous in terms of echo and lack of ambience. This is due to bare concrete decor and a particularly unattractive floor.
But the girls and the mamasang made up for these superficial shortcomings.
The mamasang was notably enthusiastic in making sure the customers were enjoying themselves suitably. In my case it was easy given a good drinking partner. A couple of parties came in for a more general chatting and playing pool session and the
mamasang was doing a good job assigning girls to ensure good fun for their session.
The drinks are customer friendly at about 75 Baht for a beer and 100 Baht for a lady drink. (Bins provided on the table pronto too). The room prices and other services follow Soi 6 norms.
A bar that's eager to please, is surely a bar that will do well.
In the early hours of Saturday morning, Pattaya Police made yet another raid of a late night entertainment venue on Walking Street.
This time it was the turn of Lucifer Disko who were found to be open after their permitted licensed operating hours.
Inside the Disco were approximately 400 people who were told to prepare themselves for drug tests. Foreign Patrons were told to leave before the testing began and after a selection of Thai patrons and staff members were tested, a total of 3
people failed the test and were detained and later charged with consumption of a class 1 drug.
The Manager of the venue was also detained and questioned at Pattaya Police Station as to why he allowed the venue to open at such a late hour.
We have just installed a brand new Jacuzzi on the 2nd floor where the action will be wet, naughty and wild!
Therefore we have chosen to celebrate the event with a Super Shower Shows promotion on the 24th of October. Buy 1 drink, get 1 free! This offer is limited to the 2nd floor only, so it will be on a first come first serve basis.
Gentlemens Club Pattaya is located in Soi Diamond, Walking Street. Let our girls pamper you.
Polo Entertainment on central Walking Street is now closed. The owners (same as Galaxy) plan to expand Galaxy and add East European Hostesses. It will be geared to the upper end "Indian, Middle Eastern, and Japanese" market.
The show bar has a good long stint but this year's disruption to the Asian tour market must convinced the owners that it is time for a change. The high prices and high hassle factor had probably put a permanent end to the hope of many farang
So now Pattaya is temporarily down to 78 bars with girls dancing in bikinis or less.
Elsewhere on Walking Street, the V 2 0 Ice Bar has re-opened above Soi Happy.
Blue Sky Bar 3 on the corner of Soi BJ has re-opened after a refit. It is still an open bar but it looks more swanky and there is now a live band.
For the 3rd time in just over a month, Police raided the Insomnia Club located on Walking Street and once again found them to be breaking the law by being open at 5am.
There were over a thousand patrons inside the venue at the time of the raid who were randomly drug tested and 12 patrons were found to have recently ingested methamphetamine. No actual drugs or any other illegal items could be found in the club;
however the manager of the venue was arrested and charged with operating the venue well over its permitted licensed opening hours.
He, along with the 12 patrons were taken to Pattaya Police Station and a further report on the club will be sent to the Banglamung District Licensing Unit.
Mixx Discotheque is located at the Bali Hai Plaza close to the Southern Entrance to Walking Street.
On Monday Night they celebrated their 2nd Anniversary with many VIP's attending, including the Mayor of Pattaya. Just 24 hours later they received some uninvited guests in the form of Pattaya Police Officers, led by the Deputy Chief of Pattaya
Police, who conducted a raid on Mixx Discotheque which included random drug testing of patrons and staff members.
On this occasion they were found to be open after their permitted licensed opening hours and a total of 7 patrons were found to have recently consumed methamphetamine which was indicated by the urine tests.
The manager of the venue was arrested and taken to Pattaya Police Station for questioning and the case report has been sent to the Banglamung District Licensing Unit for their consideration.
Utopia A-GoGo is towards the southern end of Walking Street on the corner of Soho Square.
The upstairs gogo has made a few alterations since it closed a few months ago. Sensibly it has created a new flight of stairs directly up from Walking Street. This provides a much clearer focus for the welcome staff to usher people in.
Once inside, the entrance has shifted a bit but the bar is still rather dissected in two the same as before. The Jacuzzi has been taken out and the regained area has been filled with backless stools arranged around small tables.
I opted for the couple of comfortable bench seats still remaining. There is still bench seating along the side of the long stage at the other side of the bar but the stage wasn't being used.
There were 5 very pretty girls dancing, being coaxed into quite an energetic effort by one of the extensive management team. The girls were dancing in bikinis or topless depending on their wishes.
The music is DJ selected and is more heavily into dance tunes than most gogos in Pattaya.
There were another half dozen girls waiting their turn to dance but they were hidden away around the corner.
There was no interaction between the dancers and customers. Presumably the bar is being targeted as a watching bar with energetic dancing as the main draw.
Me, I don't go to GoGo's to watch pretty girls dance, I go for a little more in the way of personal interaction. But a bit of variety is always welcome for those with different tastes.
Draft beer was 55 Baht but I am not sure whether that is the happy hour price or for all night.
There are still 78 GoGos in and around Pattaya as Utopia opening makes up for Coyotee's closing.
Coyote's A-GoGo has been dark for the past few days and has a BIG chain and lock on the door. Word on the street is that the surviving owner has closed it down permanently. See also
Go-Go Closed Permanently by Pattaya Ghost
Utopia A-GoGo on the corner of Walking Street and Soho Square is set to re-open. They have remodelled the stairs so that there is a flight directly up from Walking Street.
The lights are back on at the B-52 Disco on Soho Square but I'm not really sure if anyone is home.
Meanwhile the almost iconic bar, The Dogs Bollocks , on Soi Yamato has re-opened after an extensive refit.
And continuing the dogs theme, The Bulldog Bar in Soi LK Metro has recently returned to life.
