Sakura Club 69 A-GoGo re-opened on 1st October on Pattaya Soi 15.
The bar has been dark since Thursday and the closure looks permanent.
The girls have been earmarked for Carousel which is set to re-open on 1st November.
So after a short life of just 3 weeks the Pattaya GoGo count drops back to 72. Of these, 66 are of interest to Thai-Anxiety readers, the rest featuring either silly pussy tricks or expensive East European girls.
Local police on Wednesday morning raided a Thai massage parlour in the central Pattaya nightspot of Soi Buakao.
Police from Chon-Buri Immigration & Anti-Human Trafficking Division Police raided the Enjoy Thai Massage parlour in Soi Buakao, central Pattaya.
The raid was instigated by authorities after reports indicated that the business was providing illegal prostitution services on the premises.
An undercover snitch was initially sent in to the business to request these aforementioned services at a cost of Bt2,000. Upon acceptance his offer, officer raided the business arresting the owner and one staff member, later found to be under the
age of 18-years-old.
Upon investigation of the rooms upstairs, police observed that they had all been furnished and decorated to propagate the solicitation of prostitution, while officers confiscated an amount of sex toys, condoms and gel from each of the rooms.
Additionally, police seized the businesses account book and employee roster for evidence in their investigation.
Daiquiri Hous has gone dark on Beach Road. it was located in a small cluster of bars between Soi 13 and Soi 13/1 (Yamato).
It was a glass fronted coyote bar and has now shared the fate of many. The bar areas around Soi 13 seem particularly difficult at the moment. Perhaps because it is a little too close to the ever sexier Walking Street. It is just too tempting to
stroll a bit further to the brighter lights.
The old Betty Boum on Soi 13/4 (Pattayaland 1) has had the builders in and looks set to return as something else in the near future.
And The Beer House on Pattaya City Walk (the shopping street next to Royal Garden) has been re-opened. Presumably a seasonal thing as the Russian winter tourist season is now building up speed.
Thanks to Paul, Pattaya-at-Night and Pattaya forums
The builders have finished on Soi 6, and Thumbs Up Funny Bar has re-opened as an open bar.
Meanwhile the builders are busy on Walking Street and there are now several bars on the way.
Fahrenheit seems to the name of the new GoGo from the Tiger/Shark group that will open on Walking Street between Soi 14 & 15. The end of November is the target date.
Next door is the 3 story Alcatraz A-GoGo which is presumably being built with the help of the local chain gangs.
Carousel on Soi Diamond is set for a re-opening on the 1st November.
Meanwhile the strangely named Motoroom seems set for an opening on Walking Street just across the road from Soi 15. The upstairs bar with a window for a dancer is hardly a hopeful sign of it being a very useful sort of bar.
There is also on ongoing building site at the old Limmatquai 80 in the middle of Soi Diamond. progress there looks terminally slow.
There's a large plot on the beach side of South Walking Street that has been cleared for something.
And Soho Square seems to up for redevelopment, perhaps to become Asia's most super duper super club.
At approximately midnight on Monday, Pattaya Police Superintendent conducted an inspection of the Pattaya Beach Road promenade.
The inspection targeted freelance prostitutes and lady-boys in the area.
In the inspection of the area, officers detained and arrested some 50 offenders, both female prostitutes and lady-boys, who had gathered between North and South Pattaya. Reports indicate that many more managed to flee the scene upon being
informed of the arrests.
Background, drug and criminal checks will now be performed on all of the 50 arrested offenders.
There is talk on Pattaya Secrets about a new GoGo set to open in Mid November on Walking Street.
Alcatraz will be located opposite King Crab (near Sois 14 & 15).
The rather unlikely sounding theme will be the famous prison, and the bar will be spread over 3 floors.
I'm not so sure that shapeless prison wear, girls in cages, and dancers in leg irons is a very promising theme. Perhaps they have something in mind more along the lines of Ilsa the Wicked Warden , with sadistic mamasangs guarding rampant
lesbian inmates. Could be more interesting. (I think there would be plenty of Pattaya mamasangs that would meet the job specification perfectly).
Crime suppression special unit officers raided a bar in the popular nightspot of Soi 6 Pattaya Beach Road early on Thursday morning.
Using a foreign volunteer snitch, officers entrapped the popular A-Go-Go Bar into providing the undercover officer with a range of services valued by the establishment and involved girl at Bt2,000. Following payment for the service officers
waiting outside the establishment blocked the entrances and raided the building.
Police arrested 17 women, including dancers), bar staff and the business owner. A substantial amount of condoms and lubricants were also confiscated as evidence in the raid.
Investigations revealed that the premises was being operated as an A-Go-Go bar on the ground floor, while the above three-floors were fitted and furnished as short-time rooms.
The owners has since been arrested and charged with being the owner/manager of an illegal prostitution business while the 16 employees have been charged with prostitution and/or aiding in the prostitution of others .
All of the offenders have since been remanded in police custody awaiting further judicial proceedings. [Sent to Alcatraz?]
Sakura Club 69 A-GoGo re-opened on 1st October on Pattaya Soi 15.
Early days of course but a totally uninspiring first few days.
The bar now has Louis, previously from Paris A-GoGo running the show.
And perhaps unsurprisingly, the GoGo is run very traditionally with just dancing girls on the central stage and the rest of the girls sitting at the back ignoring customers.
There were actually 8 girls in attendance of which 4 were dancing. There were a couple of decent lookers and there was a mix of topless and bikini clad dancing. The girls were dancing for 4 songs which is fine. The music is more for the girls
than the guys.
Not that there were many guys though. A couple of customers poked their head through the curtain, but were not impressed enough to enter.
The drinks are cheap but really it takes more than cheap drinks to get the customers in. It takes naughtiness interaction and fun.
Welcome back To Sakura Club 69 A-GoGo that re-opened on 1st October on Pattaya Soi 15.
Reports on Pattaya forums have noted that the bar layout hasn't been changed and that there is a 45 Baht draft beer.
There are now 73 Pattaya area bars featuring dancing girls in bikinis or less.
Welcome Back to First Bar on Pattaya Soi 8 at the back of a beer bar complex. It has returned as First's Lounge: A Gentleman's Club. Which is reported to mean that the dancing girls have been replaced by a pool table.
And Welcome back to the USA Navy who are in town until Wednesday.
