Movida closes for a rethink
Link Here

movidaMovida nightclub opened with entrances in Soi 14 and Soi 15 on 27th February. It has now closed a month later.

There is a sign on the door saying Change for the Better: Opening Soon.

Nightclubs can be a bit tricky in Pattaya. Recent examples of Halo and New York, New York didn't really pan out as hoped. Before that, Republika and Hammer were notable failures.

The mamasang from Guugle was spotted in Iron Club and she revealed that the closure is temporary and Guugle is expecting to re-open on 28th April.

Police check tourist passports at a raid on Mixx disco, promising further raids soon
Link Here

Thai Police logoJust before 1.30am on Thursday, police and local authorities conducted a raid of the Mixx Discotheque at the Bali Hai Plaza in South Pattaya.

Both Thais and Foreign Patrons were targeted. Passports and Visa checks were made on the foreign patrons and urine tests were conducted on the Thai Patrons, of which 8 failed the test and were arrested by Pattaya Police.

At the time over 300 patrons were inside the disco. The District Officials also checked licenses and the age of patrons to ensure they were over 20. No irregularities were found.

This raid is expected to be the first of many which will take place over the coming days and weeks as ordered by the Ministry of the Interior. Similar raids have occurred in Phuket

Meeting to warn bar owners of raids and 2am closing

28th March 2013. See article from pattayaone.net

In what is seen as a pre-cursor to a crackdown on late-opening entertainment venues in Pattaya, the Pattaya Police Chief called together a selection of Bar Owners and Managers on Wednesday to warn them to comply with their licenses or be shut-down.

Police Colonel Suwan led the meeting and started by explaining that tough new guidelines from the Ministry of the Interior require all venues to strictly comply with the conditions of their licenses. Within the Pattaya entertainment zone this would mean that all venues must shut by 2am. Outside of the zone they must shut at midnight.

Venues must also comply with laws relating to the minimum age for customers and employees. Employees must be aged over 18 and customers must be no younger than 20.

Drugs is a known problem within the entertainment industry and Pattaya Police are now telling bar owners and managers that they will be held responsible for anyone found with drugs inside their respective venues.

CCTV inside the venues must be checked on a regular basis and the Police Chief asked for cooperation should images need to be obtained from them at any time.

  The Bell Rings on Dancing Class...

No more dancing at Classroom A-GoGo
Link Here

Classroom neon Classroom A-GoGo is a long running bar on Soi 13/4 (Soi Pattayaland 2)

There are reports on the Pattaya forums that Classroom has given up on dancers. The bar now sports a few hostesses, but barfines are maintained at GoGo level.

Even before this latest news, Classroom A-GoGo has long been banished from the Thai-Anxiety GoGo listings for wearing way too many clothes. There hasn't been anything, even as revealing as a bikini top, for years.

I don't know what they will be studying at Classroom in the coming months, maybe economics and finance . Perhaps later on, a course in alternative sexuality.

  No More GoGo Glamour...

Glamour A-GoGo becomes Glamour Club
Link Here
glamour clubGlamour A-GoGo at Bali Hai at the south end of Walking Street has abandoned the GoGo game.

The bar has now re-branded itself as Glamour Club and describes itself as a discotheque and coyote club.

This rather adds to the list of bars failures where the intention is to be half GoGo, half nightclub. Presumably the idea is to maximise operating time by being a GoGo until a midnight and then a club thereafter. However the two types of entertainment are very difficult and it is difficult to find staff and dancers who can adapt to both types.

Other recent examples are New York New York, which is now closed and up for sale, and Halo, which has given up the GoGo half of its operations.

There are now 87 bars in Pattaya with Thai girls dancing in bikinis or less.

There is a sign outside promising that it will be a GoGo and the boss has promised that the dancers will be ladies.

Update: Coyote

And indeed the bar opened as planned on 18th March 2013.

A first look revealed mostly coyote dancers, but at least they were ladies. Perhaps coyotes are  now inevitable for the early days of a bar. Another check in a few days is required to see if it will count towards the GoGo tally.

Continuing police raids

Nui's 2 front Police have raided Nui's Club 2 on Walking Street.

They found three underage girls and arrested the bar manager as result. She was charged with human trafficking by receiving benefit through prostitution of a person over the age of consent 15 but under 18 years old.

The police arrested the 16 year old dancer in the bar after an undercover man was sent to entrap her by pretending to offer to buy sex.

After the arrest, police checked further and found 2 more girls aged 17.

Update: Naughty Girls Too

Thanks to Henry

The Police also visited Naughty Girls on Soi Diamond.

Again the police had issues with under 18's, and a dancer from Laos. Things seem to have got sorted and the bar is still open.

For years the venue was Paris A-GoGo, but hasn't found a long lasting follow on. After Paris it became Atlantis A-GoGo, and then MUM Bar which tried both open air and aircon formats.

Meanwhile on Soi 6, another long time bar, Superstar, has now been converted into a shop.

police at sugar sugarSugar Sugar and Club Blu were closed early a couple of nights ago as the result of police raids. Both clubs were hit at about 10:45pm. Sugar Sugar immediately re-opened later but Club Blu didn't. There was talk of a 30 day closure at Club Blu, but in fact the bar re-opened after being dark for just one night.

Another recent report was that Papa GoGo had closed on Soi Diana. And thankfully this turned out to be another short term problem. The bar has now re-opened.

So now the Pattaya's GoGo count as returned to 88 bars with Thai girls dancing in bikinis or less.

Meanwhile on Soi 6 police had been raiding bars for a few days on the pretext of bar licences stipulating opening hours only after 6pm. The licences have been this way since time memorial so its nothing new.  Resulting negotiations seem to have been successful as most of the soi has now resumed normal afternoon services, including drinking.

Nui's 2 front Nui's Club 2 A-GoGo has re-opened on Walking Street after a little re-work.

So the GoGo count climbs a rung and there are now 88 bars in Pattaya with Thai girls dancing in bikinis or less.

Had there been one, a coyote bar count would have dropped by one, after Dreams Bar closed on Soi 8.

Meanwhile there's news on Pattaya forums that Shenanigan's has been sold and will soon re-open in the Avenue Mall as a family pub that caters for children. A first for Pattaya.

  Happy Prices...

Happy sign The Happy group bars are Baccara, Happy, Peppermint and Beach Club.

The bars have now increased the all night price of draft beer from 59 to 65 Baht.

Happy Hour drinks have risen from 65 to 70 Baht.

Perhaps most notably, barfines have increased from 600 to 700 Baht.

There is much talk on the Pattaya forums, understandably suggesting that the 100 Baht increase will be soon be followed by other Walking Street GoGos. The Happy group is very dominant as it attracts more or less the best dancers in town yet it sets drinks and barfine prices that are the most reasonable in town. And very noticeably the group keeps the barfine system very simple with a single price at all times except for festivities.

The staff and dancers have moved to Submarine A-GoGo

So there are now 87 bars with Thai girls dancing in bikinis or less.

shenanigansIt has been reported that the Irish themed restaurant and bar, Shenanigans has closed on the first floor of the Avenue Mall. There is a Jomtien branch by the Jomtien Complex that is continuing.

The recent first floor revamp of the Avenue Mall looks to have been something of a failure. A few Thai style bars gave it a try, but don't seem to have lasted long.

The venue hasn't been in the news since moving across the road to the Avenue Mall. But the original location in the Marriott hotel grounds (now Dicey Riley), was once very well known. It was the bar of choice for many of the socialites that attended Rotarian events and the like, that got covered in the local press.

The buzz is that it isn't connected with clubs of the same name in London and Dubai.

The venue was once a pussy tricks GoGo called Top Girls. It then tried a more swanky white club like layout as Illusion Club. It wasn't a hit and the bar returned to its pussy tricks roots. This wasn't a success either, and the venue was left vacant for quite a while.

Movida is set to open in about a week.

The Glass House A-GoGo neon The Glass House A-GoGo is located on Walking Street nearly opposite Soi Diamond and has Lucifer, Ginza and Nui's Club 2 as near neighbours.

I saw over 30 dancers in the bar, and most of them were coyotes. There were no topless dancers.

There's one stage on the ground floor. 6 dancers were on the stage at any one time, and one dancer changes each song.

When it gets full downstairs, there is another bar area and stage upstairs that will be opened.

The bar opens at 8pm. There is no happy hour, nor draft beer.

  • Soft drinks : 90 Baht
  • Lady drinks : 140 Baht
  • Bar Fines : 1000 Baht (after midnight 700 Baht)

The co-owners are Japanese and American. This is their first bar but they have a plan to open  another bar later in the year.

There are now 89 GoGos in the Pattaya area with at least some Thai girls regularly dancing in bikinis or less.

The exercise, which ends Feb. 21, will improve the capability to plan and conduct combined-joint operations and will provide an opportunity for partner nations to build relationships and improve interoperability across the range of military operations.

But there are also rumours that this will entail a temporary change of venue, or even a permanent change of venue and there's also talk of a permanent closure.

The venue has been a tough sell as a dancing bars with failures as Snowice and Voodoo. It is not clear whether the closure was a hiccup, or whether there will be another plan B for the bar.

Meanwhile the Pier Disco has opened in the building that most recently housed Polo, Cosy and Lollipop A-GoGo.

Galaxy has found a new home as part of the Pier and resumes with its very expensive East European dancing girls.

And the net result is that there are still 90 bars with girls dancing in bikinis or less.
