Passion Dance Club is located towards the Beach Road end of Soi 6.
They say first impressions count, and mine was to trip up over a not very visible step at the front door.
But once safely inside, things soon looked up. The bar is a little smaller than Betty Boup opposite and is attractively decorated with a chrome theme. It is basically a square with comfortable bench seating around the walls. The square central stage is
quite large and is set lower than most. There are stools with backs around the stage.
The music covers a fair range of genres but is basically there to be danced to. It is perhaps a little loud but it is after all, a dance club.
The girls made for a very impressive line up, probably about the best I've seen for an opening day. One of the advantages of running two bars is the flexibility to move girls around as needed.
There were only 2 or 3 girls dancing as most were occupied being hands-on friendly with the customers. Exactly as it ought to be. A quick look at the white board, showing plenty of barfines and the likes, suggest that this approach was working well.
The drinks prices are very customer friendly too.
With Cosy's A-GoGo opening on Walking Street, there are now 81 Pattaya bars with dancing girls in bikinis or less.
So a good first impression, apart from the doorstep that is.
