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.
