Turn off Pratamnak at the Ratchawarun Road the main junction towards the highest point of Pratamnak. Then head towards Cozy Beach on Pratamnak Soi 1 and look for Soi 1/11, the last soi as you head towards the sea.
Shooters Guesthouse, Sports and Coyote Bar has opened on Soi 7 towards the 2nd Road end. The bar opened on 30th November. Coyote dancers dance on the tables from 8pm but at a 1am visit most had already been taken away.
Champagne A-GoGo was expected to open on 1st December but didn't, or if it did, it opened very late in the evening.
A-Team was an aircon bar that seemed to be reasonably popular on Soi Xzyte. However, the bar has closed. The furnishings have been removed. There are reports that the entire block is set for redevelopment.
Rehab was located on Soi Buakhao a couple of blocks south of the Soi LK Metro bar area.
The bar's Facebook page announced the closure and the bar didn't open the following day. The sign off reads:
We r closing ppl. Thanks for all of ur supports.
The business model of overdressed, overpriced and overselective coyote dancers has not got a good track record in Pattaya. Given the amount of racier, cheaper, and more obliging competition in Pattaya, there seems little reason to patronise such
an establishment just for the coyote dancing. Of course very attractive girls are always the trump card in Pattaya but such girls are hard to retain once the customers start to dwindle.
Amethyst is a violet variety of quartz often used in jewelry. The name comes from the Ancient Greek, a reference to the belief that the stone protected its owner from drunkenness. The ancient Greeks and Romans wore amethyst and made drinking
vessels of it in the belief that it would prevent intoxication.
Peppermint is located on Walking Street in the vicinity of Showcase and the Walking Street Tree.
Peppermint closed for a week for re-modelling and re-opened on 9th November.
There are now 2 stages. One is a rectangular (sub) stage with 5 poles (dancers and coyotes) near entrance. The other is a square (center) stage with 8 poles (dancers and coyotes) center of the bar. 2 dancers move from center stage to sub stage
The famous midnight on stage (all dancers, coyotes and hostess entering on the stage at midnight for one song) finished on 30th October.
The Chonburi Provincial Governor has banned Pattaya entertainment spots from selling Baraku herbal liquor and a tobacco type product known as Sisha, (used in water pipe smoking).
Police have already been on a raiding party visiting entertainment spots that were selling herbal liquor or tobacco types known as Baraku or Shisha (used in water pipe smoking), which are a common sight in Pattaya.
Given that many Middle Easterners don't partake in alcohol, the Sisha is the prime shared activity in the bars. So banning it will render Sisha bars pointless.
Phil, also known as Mr Egg is moving from Babydolls A-GoGo to the Secrets hangout bar on the next Soi.
