  Boom Boom...

Rahtree Bar Complex has a makeover
Link Here
boom boom complex What was previously known as the Rahtree Complex has been reborn as Boom Boom .

It is located on Soi Buakhao a couple of blocks south of the Soi Diana/Soi LK Metro area. It was recently the home of the failed coyote bar, Rehab.

The complex is attractive and quite striking but saw few customers, perhaps because it was mostly out of sight behind Rehab

The complex managers have crammed in a few open beer bars where they can be seen from the street, chosen a more meaningful name, and erected an attention grabbing new sign.

Hopefully it will now be spotted by the passers by on their way to the Soi LK Metro area.

No doubt soon to be followed by You're Fucking Kidding Bar.

 

5th March

  Dislodged...

Sapphire Lodge closes on Pratamnak Soi 4
Link Here
Sapphire Lodge Sapphire Lodge was a gentlemen's club, a fair way off the beaten track, and in the vicinity of Kinnaree.

It has now closed and is up for sale.

It is tough to compete with an established bar in the gentlemen's club market. There seems to be a tendency towards a natural monopoly. The girls gravitate to where the most customers are, and the guys seek out the bar with the most girls. The remote locations mean that it is not so simple to try others out via a crawl or whatever. The bottom line is that customers will only go to far flung places if they are pretty sure that they will get what they want.

And Sapphire Lodge simply didn't offer that certainty.

 

3rd March

  Paradise Postponed...

Paradise A-GoGo closes for renovation

paradise a-gogo Paradise A-GoGo is located on Soi LK Metro.

The bar has now closed for renovation for about 6 weeks. I hope they are not making another clone of Champagne/Crystal/Oscars/Funhouse.

Link Here

Tiger Lounge front Tiger is located on on Soi Diamond with stairs up from Walking Street.

The bar re-opened in February 2014 under the same management as before.

The bar does not yet count as a GoGo as all of the dancers were wearing too much,

So for now the GoGo count stays unaltered at 86

  There's not much call for family pubs in Pattaya...

The Acorn Pub closes at The Avenue
Link Here
acorn The Acorn Pub has closed on the first floor of the Avenue shopping mall. The venue was perhaps better known in its previous incarnation as Shenanigans.

The venue promoted itself as a family pub but clearly there is a somewhat limited market for such in Pattaya.

The pub signed out on 4th of February with the following statement:

We are sorry to announce that we will no longer be trading as of Midnight tonight. If you have enjoyed good times , ate and drank at The Acorn Gastro Pub we are incredibly grateful for your custom. For Now we will be relocating to shenanigans Jomtein we hope to see you there. Thanks

 

9th February

  A New Destiny...

Destiny re-opens under new management on Soi LK Metro
Link Here

Destiny frontage Destiny is located on Soi LK Metro opposite Paradise A-GoGo.

The bar has just been refurbished and re-opened on 8th February. A review will follow.

The bar is under new management so hopefully they can improve on the rather modest popularity that the previous incarnation enjoyed. This was probably down to the bar being more coyote than GoGo.

  Relegation...

Ginza A-GoGo now listed as a coyote bar
Link Here
ginza Ginza A-GoGo is one of the bars located on Walking Street opposite Soi Diamond.

The Thai-Anxiety definition of a GoGo is that there should be Thai girls dancing in bikinis or less. Ginza A-GoGo dancers seems to have been exclusively coyotes since September 2013. So now the venue is listed in the as a coyote bar rather than a GoGo.

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

  Hostesslessness...

FLB Bar closes

Connections  to the bar have contributed a lot to Pattaya nightlife as it started the first bar sponsored forum that took off. The bar was a meeting point and a partying point for many of the forum members that are still active today.

The bar also provided the inspiration for Secrets, another influential Pattaya bar with a major forum.

Clinic A-GoGo closes
Link Here
clinic closed Clinic A-GoGo has closed on Soi 7.

The builders are in seemingly to convert it back to the beer bar from whence it came.

the bar had been running since December 2010 but always seemed to be living in the shadow of neighbour Silver Star 2.

There are now 89 bars currently classified as GoGos, but a couple are set for the chop for being permanently overdressed.

Meanwhile on Walking Street the old Teazers coyote bar in front of New Living Doll 1 has gone lady boy. The new bar opened on the 6th January as Shhh. But the secret is that there are 5 lady boys working there and even the token service girl is a tom.
