Updated: Hot and Cold and Closed...

News from Soi Post Office and a review from the New Malibu Show Bar

Link Here28th September 2014
Hot & Cold A-GoGo on Soi Post Office (Soi 13/2) seems to have closed, not really a surprise.

There are now 84 bars around Pattaya with Thai girls dancing in bikinis or less

And their neighbour Miami A-GoGo is indeed for sale, be it still in operation.

Beyond (previously Malibu), the transvestite show bar on the corner of Second Road and Soi Post Office (Soi 13/2) opposite Bodega Bar, has been dark last week and some refurbishing is going on.

There is a new sign: The New Malibu Show .

On Sunday evening 21st September 2014 the activities had resumed.

Many Thai girls like their impersonations.

At my last visit a short fatty, who had come with two farangs, was having a good time.

She went on stage to dance with the transvestites, started to get very familiar and finally lifted the dresses of the performers to check the goodies .

Note that it can get hot there because there is no air conditioning and the fans are not much help.

Bottled Heineken 85 baht (show included).

Update: Hot and Cold and Closed and Sad

28th September 2014. A sad photo from Ishi of (Japanese language)

My last visit was at 8:30pm on 9th September. I did not see any dancers nor any customers in the bar.



Open Season on Bar Closures...

A few well known bars move on

Link Here22nd September 2014
The two corner bars on Walking street on the short soi to Happy A-GoGo have closed, Star Beer Bar has been around for as long as I can remember. The Best Bar on the opposite corner has been around since 2006 when it replaced Stoney's Bar.

Meanwhile on Beach Road there is another prominent gap just north of Soi Yamato. The long running Scandinavian Bar has closed, and its neighbou SP Swiss Bar has moved to Soi 7.

Pulse Disco on southern Walking Street has taken down its signs. There are several Russian bars closed, but Russians visitors are very seasonal and they may re-open as the Russian winter approaches. Maybe not Pulse though.

Sexy A-GoGo closed some time ago on Soi 7 but the venue has now re-opened as a massage shop, so has been permanently lost to the GoGo trade.

But never fear, there is a new Walking Street GoGo taking shape next door to Sweethearts A-GoGo, possibly another from the Shark chain.



Easy Open...

The Big Easy! 2 opens off Walking Street

Link Here20th September 2014
Kanta's The Big Easy! 2 opened on 19th September 2014. It is located at the junction of Soi 14 and Soi 15 at the venue that was previously Cats Corner.

Kanta's The Big Easy! is in Simon Beer Bar complex opposite Tony's Disco.



Updated: Coyotes Check Out...

News from Check-in Bar in Soi 15

Link Here15th September 2014
Check in Bar is a small bar on Soi 15 that recently introduced coyote dancing.

However thsi doesn't seem to have been a success and a after a short closure for re-organisation the bar has reverted to being a simple beer bar.

 Drink prices have been reduced accordingly.




Checking Out...

News from Check-in Bar, Coyote Club, MClub

Link Here13th September 2014
Check in Bar is a small bar that recently introduced coyote dancing. However maybe this wasn't a particular success as the bar has now gone dark. No reasons noted yet so it could still be a temporary blip.

The Coyote Club recently took over from Silver Star 3 on Walking Street. As the name suggests, the dress code is coyote. But the bar has now introduced bikinis on Sundays. These are sexy, but the girls still wear underwear underneath. SO not quite a GoGo yet.

MClub on 3rd Road: Soi 14 is a gentlemen's club. It has now introduced regular pool parties on Saturdays (every 2 weeks). Soft drinks are 50B, lady drinks 130B,  bar fines for outside 500B, bar fine inside (including playing room) 250B.



Mai Pet...

Spicy Girls A-GoGo opens on Walking Street

Link Here12th September 2014

Spicy Girls A-GoGo has opened on Walking Street at the previous location of Guugle and Powers Club A-GoGo.

It is upstairs of Champion A-GoGo and the entrance is between the entrance to Champion A-GoGo and the shoe shop where the German restaurant Bier Kutsche used to be.

The interior is predominantly red with a too narrow elliptical stage.

Not much, if anything, has changed since its last incarnation.

The toilets urgently need a lick of paint.

Apart from the main area there is an apparently unused second area with seating only at the street side next to the staircase.

Whereas many recent gogos are too narrow (Infinity, Glasshouse, Ginza, Lighthouse, Mandarin, Sugar Baby, etc.) this one is rather too broad and the extra space has not really been made good use of.

There were eight to ten dancers, about half of them on stage.

The line-up was definitely below average.

Most of them were wearing double tops and double bottoms, but some also showed their naked fat torsos above their double bottoms.

I would not be surprised if some of them came from the previous edition of Nui's.

The mamasan told me she came from Sugar Baby A-GoGo on Walking Street.

Bottled Heineken 130 baht.

There are now 85 bars in the Pattaya area with Thai girls dancing in bikinis or less



Never Ending Supply of New GoGos...

Infinity A-GoGo opens on Walking Street

Link Here9th September 2014
  Infinity A-GoGo opened on Walking Street on 8th September 2014.

The bar is located next to the pussy tricks showbar, Hot Girls.

Infinity is reported to have ownership connections with Oscars and the Booze Lounges.

There are now 84 bars in the Pattaya area with Thai girls dancing in bikinis or less



Another Spicy Girls...

Taking shape on Walking Street

Link Here4th September 2014
The upstairs GoGo on Walking Street that was previously Guugle now has signs saying that it will soon re-open as Spicy Girls A-GoGo.

There was once another long running GoGo with the name Spicy Girls. It was most famously located on Soi Pattayaland 1 but later moved to Soi Post Office.

However it will bear little resemblance to the previous incarnation. The latest signage says that the bar will "Love All Serve All". It is fascinating that in these acutely PC times we can read so much into a few words to know exactly who the new bar is targeting.



Updated: Recycled Glass...

Glass House A-GoGo re-opened

Link Here1st September 2014
The Glass House A-GoGo on Walking Street re-opened on 1st September.

The bar was last named Ginza II and was closed as a result of a police raid. It never re-opened and was sold to new owners. It has now re-opened under its original name Glasshouse. It is under new management and now has ownership connections with Wildcats.

There are now 83 bars around Pattaya featuring Thai girls dancing in bikinis or less.



Distant Plans...

Another GoGo takes shape on Walking Street

Link Here30th August 2014
There's another new GoGo taking shape on Walking Street. Infinity A-GoGo , will appear at the previous location of the Italian restaurant L' Italiano (which has now moved opposite AlcatraZ).

It is opposite Sweetheart's A-GoGo and under Hot Girls A-GoGo .

If my memory serves, that restaurant was very cramped, so I expect some kind of reissue of Submarine A-GoGo, be it probably much longer.

There are reports of ownership connections with Oscars on Soi LK Metro.



Updated: A New Moon...

Moonlight A-GoGo re-opens

Link Here29th August 2014
Moonlight A-GoGo has re-opened in the Covent Garden Complex on Soi 16 a few paces off Walking Street.

The GoGo opened on 16th November 2013 but closed on 16th January 2014. The venue had previously been Club Relaxxx, and before that, Club Sin City, Black & White, Taboo and Babewatch.

There are now 82 bars around Pattaya featuring Thai girls dancing in bikinis or less.



Tea Total Dictatorship...

Thailand's military dictators demand midnight closing and ban all drinks promotions including Happy Hours

Link Here26th August 2014
Thailand's military junta has warned that it intends to enforce harsh measures regulating the advertising and promotion of alcohol, in a move that will affect thousands of businesses throughout the country.

Under the newly enforced rules all alcohol products must carry health warnings, sales are banned to anyone under the age of 20, and initiatives promoting alcohol -- such as happy hours, free ice and mixers, and the use of beer girls -- are banned.

No drinking is allowed after midnight in bars or restaurants, even though sales have ended; no alcohol logos are allowed on glasses, ashtrays and other paraphernalia; and bars will not be allowed to display posters or bottles -- even old ones -- featuring such logos.

Bar staff cannot wear T-shirts with alcohol logos, and it is illegal to promote events such as wine and beer tastings. Alcohol logos - or even images accepted as representative of brands, such as a deer head for Benmore or red stars for Heineken - are not allowed to be displayed in sponsorship or any kind of advertising or promotion.

Promoting alcohol through word of mouth is also illegal, so if a waiter is asked to recommend a particular brand of beer he would be breaking the law if he responds. All printed photographs of glasses or bottles in the media must have visible brands and logos blurred.

Fines range between 2,500 for non-cooperation with inspectors and 500,000 baht if beverage companies promote and advertise their alcohol illegally. There are also punishments of up to six months in jail for various offences.

Update: Not yet national

28th August 2014.

The new doesn't seem to have made any national newspapers so maybe this is an action local to Chiang Mai.



Bars from the Dark Side...

Supatta Cafe, Black Angels bar, Michel Happy Bar

Link Here25th August 2014
Supatta Caf é

On the left-hand side of Soi Nern Plab Wahn when coming from Sukhumvit Road, about a hundred metres before Pussy Cat, Supatta Caf é Bar & Guesthouse has opened.

It is owned by Paul from Dendermonde (Belgium) and his Thai wife Supatta (nickname Daeng).

It is rather spacious with a blue pool table and red stools and will also have rooms for rent. On the wall is a big Flemish Lion flag.

At the moment Daeng and her sister are serving and it is not clear if it will evolve into a girlie bar.

Note that Soi Nern Plab Wahn is also known as Sukhumvit Pattaya Soi 53 and Soi Map Yai Lia. Nern Plab Wahn is also spelt in many different ways in English, such as Noneplubwan.

Bottled Heineken 70 baht.

Black Angels Bar

On the left-hand side of Soi Lablae (aka Soi Nern Plab Wahn Soi 31, etc.) when coming from Soi Nern Plab Wahn, halfway between Soi Nern Plab Wahn and Top Cool Retreat, is Black Angels Bar.

It is a very minimalistic single-shophouse bar owned by a Thai lady and her Thai husband.

There were two girls: a 20-year old one who had worked at Joy Joy Bar on Soi Siam Country Club and a 30-year old very shy and probably farm-fresh one. The older one looked better than the younger one but the language barrier and the shyness were insurmountable.

Barfine 300 baht, no ST rooms. I was told a room at the 24 Hr motel next to Ying Bar was 280 baht.

Bottled Heineken 60 baht.

Michel Happy Bar

On the right-hand side of Soi Khao Noi Soi 9, when coming from Soi Khao Noi, some 100-200 metres past New Bar and Golden Gate Bar, is Michel Happy Bar.

It is a small bar with a terrace.

Most girls are fat and the other ones are grannies. The cashier is a 22-year old tomboy.

Bottled Heineken 70 baht.



Halo For Sale...

On Walking Street

Link Here24th August 2014
Halo Club is located towards the Beach Road end of Walking Street

Halo has now put up the sign: SALE - RENT . It's still open as a bar. Just an ordinary beer bar though, there haven't been any coyote dancers last 2 or 3 months.

The venue was previously Snowice coyote bar and then GoGo, Voodoo A-GoGo, and the Nok beer bar complex. None of the ideas seems to have been very successful.



Time Served...

Ginza re-opens on Walking Street

Link Here21st August 2014
Ginza A-GoGo on Walking Street has re-opened after a 6o day police closure.

There are now 81 bars around Pattaya with Thai girls dancing in bikinis or less.



Pattaya Blues...

Blues Factory closes

Link Here19th August 2014
The Blues Factory off Walking Street has closed on Friday 15th August 2014. This long running venue, which has had some of the best bands in Pattaya, closed after the owner decided to move back to the UK.

Mary and the Snowman are now playing at Mood Cafe on Pratamnak Soi 6.

Lam Morrison appears at the Hot Tuna music bar opposite Insomia disco on Walking Street. Also on Fridays and Saturdays at the Heineken Beer Garden outside Big C North Pattaya.

Harem Flatrate Sensation on Soi Diamond was closed on Sunday 17th August 2014. It seems that the bar will install a jacuzzi, raise the single-girl formula from 1,000 to 1,200 baht and give up the multiple-girl formula.

Meanwhile the greeters at sister bar, Harem A Go Go on Walking Street, have been showing a signs Harem 2 Chang beer 75 @ all night and Harem 2 Singha beer 75 @ all night ; probably bottles rather than the draft previously reported.

Fun Seeker Dance Club on Soi 6 seems now to be permanently closed. Also the neighbouring Mandarin is not a gogo anymore, it is now just a beer bar with ladyboys. The only remaining gogo on Soi 6 is Passion Dance Club , albeit with broken neon signs and without nudity.

So now there are 80 bars in the Pattaya area with Thai girls dancing in bikinis or less.



Malibu Red...

A first look at the new Club Malibu

Link Here19th August 2014

On Soi LK Metro the newly opened gogo Malibu shares its facade with Champagne.

It has a modern looking central stage with five chrome poles on it and fixed barstools around it. On the left-hand side is one row of bench seating and on the right-hand side two rows.

Most of the dancers were clad in red bikinis in different shapes and sizes; some of them were topless. The quality of the girls was average at best, in the age bracket of 20 to 40 years.

Sometimes there were five dancers on stage, sometimes two and sometimes nobody at all. I saw a lousy, not even lesbian , show with two body-painted fatties.

It seems one team of dancers works from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m. and another one from 8.30 p.m. until closing time between 3 and 4 a.m.

I heard the bikini dancers are paid 12,000 baht a month and the topless ones 15,000 baht.

The music was way too loud.

At a given moment my check-bin had disappeared. I called the waitresses and they concluded that my neighbour had probably, unknowingly, paid my bill. An embarrassing story.

Barfines were 600 baht.

Bottled Heineken 120 baht.



Lights Out...

At Lighthouse and Harem Flatrate

Link Here18th August 2014
Lighthouse A-GoGo on Walking Street closed last night at 11pm because of small fire.

Nobody was injured in Lighthouse but one man in Lobster Pot who breathed much smoke was taken to hospital.

Meanwhile Harem Flatrate on Soi Diamond has closed for one month for renovation. Dancers and staff have moved to Harem A-GoGo on Walking Street.

Assuming that Lighthouse will be re-opening immediately, then there are now 81 bars around Pattaya with Thai girls dancing in bikinis or less.



Seeking Fun in Malibu...

GoGos open, close and get re-named

Link Here17th August 2014
Club Malibu opened on 15th August 2014 on Soi LK Metro. It is next door to sister bar to Champagne.

Meanwhile on Soi 6, The intermittently opening Fun Seeker Dance Club has been closed for 10 days so that case looks pretty terminal.

And on Walking Street news signage now confirms that Nui's Club A-GoGo has been renamed Runway .

And there are still 82 bars in the Pattaya area with Thai girls dancing in bikinis or less.



Break out the champagne...

Club Malibu set to open on Soi LK Metro

Link Here14th August 2014
A new GoGo is set to have a soft opening on Friday 15th August. Club Malibu is the sister bar to Champagne next door.

Champagne is also re-opening on Thursday after a couple of days of building work, presumably related to work on malibu.

Meanwhile Ginza 1 has posted a notice saying that it will re-open on 20th August.

Also on Walking Street, Harem is now doing draft beer at 75 baht.



Checking In...

More coyote dancing on Soi 15

Link Here12th August 2014
Check in Bar is located on Soi 15 next door to Angelwitch show bar.

It opened as a beer bar in the last year, (I think). Bar fines were then 300B. It changed to a coyote bar on the 1st August,  and bar fines are now 800B.

The location was previously Happy Net, an internet cafe (See on Google Streetview )

I saw 4 coyotes on the stage, and other 8 coyotes were in and out of the bar. I was the only customer all the time.

Soft drinks : 85B bottled beer : 125B (Heineken : 145B) lady drinks : 150B



Factory Closure...

Blues Factory set to close

Link Here11th August 2014
The Blues Factory is a long running music bar on Soi Lucky Star just off Walking Street. The closing date will be 20th August.

Owner DaveThailand needs to return to the UK.

The Bar has been around as long as I can remember with some of the best bands in Pattaya. More rock than blues though.

A bar that will be well missed.



Souped Up...

Super Girl re-opens

Link Here6th August 2014
  Super Girl is located on Soi Diamond.

The GoGo  re-opened on 5th August after a month of renovation.

There are now 82 bars around Pattaya with Thai girls dancing in bikinis or less.



Upstairs and Downstairs...

Upstairs GoGo re-opens on Walking Street

Link Here3rd August 2014
Upstairs A-GoGo is located on southern Walking Street on the corner of Soho Square.

The bar has just re-opened after a few days of repairs that were required after a small fire.

Unfortunately X-Zone around the corner on Soi 16 remains closed. Forum chatter suggests that the GoGo will now stay closed.

Meanwhile the closed Funhouse A-GoGo, on the corner of Soi Buakhao and Soi LK Metro, has now posted a For Sale sign.

There are now 81 bars in the Pattaya area with Thai girls dancing in bikinis or less.



Further to Fall...

Upstairs GoGos close on Walking Street

Link Here31st July 2014
Upstairs A-GoGo is located on southern Walking Street on the corner of Soho Square.

The bar has gone dark for a few days as repairs are required after a small fire. The bar is expected to re-open on 4th August 2014.

X-Zone is located on the top floor of the Convent Garden Complex on Soi 16 near Walking Street.

The bar was dark on 30th July 2014 with a notice on the door saying closed but not providing a reason. Staff at nearby bars claim that the closure may be permanent.

For the moment there are now 80 bars around Pattaya with Thai girls dancing in bikinis or less.



Prices Pepped Up...

Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Peppermint

Link Here31st July 2014
Peppermint is located on Walking Street in the vicinity of the shrine known as the Walking Street Tree.

Never been my preferred A-GoGo bar but since they changed the design it become a lot more like everything else in Pattaya.

3 girls were topless from the bikini girls staff. Just 1 month ago all were topless, but this time they seemed to show only on demand (against some cash of course)

A group of farang who converted at least 3000 baht in 20 baht bills were doing a lot of noise, all the girls were screaming at them.

One of them started pole dancing, beers fall on the second stage, that was quite fun, thanks them to save me from the morosity.

The first stage is boring with 4 girls slowly moving (can't call that dancing). The music was the worse, sounding like renovation tools in a bathroom, noisy to say the last, impossible to talk.

Some girls are in the business for long time and not surprising the ones with the best shapes were 30+, all the young girls were overdressed and overweight.

They raised the draft beer from 59 to 79, water and soda 110+, lady drinks 150.



Slightly Improved...

Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Gentlemen's Club

Link Here28th July 2014

Gentlemen's Club on Soi Diamond has slightly improved since my last visit and that was badly needed.

I saw six topless dancers in black lingerie (agency girls ?) who also performed some lousy shows . One of them had ridiculous bolt-ons.

I also saw seven dancers in bikinis and transparent camisoles, among them a fat shapeless one, and a bunch of boring noisy hostesses .

The dance stints were extremely long.

From time to time tequila shots were offered for sale.

I did not see the owner or a mamasan.

Around 11 p.m. for a while I was the only customer.

They appear to sell a discount card at 500 baht, but who cares ?

Tiger draught 95 baht, bottled Heineken 140 baht, tequila shots 135 baht, lady drinks 135-200 baht.



Runway Takes Off...

A new name for Nui's Club

Link Here27th July 2014
Nui's Club which recently took on the staff and dancers from Roxy held a party on the 26th July to announce the new name, Runway .

Presumably the name underlines the GoGo's ownership connections with the nearby Airport GoGo.

Nui's Club on Walking Street opposite Soi Diamond was previously named Nui's Club 2.



Method in the Madness...

Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Crazy House

Link Here26th July 2014

Crazy House is located on Walking Street at the venue that was previously Teazers

I walked into Crazy House Friday night. There are coyote, Bikini and topless Dancers, and a bathtub with naked girls soaping themselves,

The standard of girl is very high, some of the coyote dancers are stunning.

Well worth a visit.

Coyote dancers 2500-3000 short time and 4000 up long time.

ps, most of the staff seem to have come from Sweethearts.



Welcome and Not So Welcome...

Pattaya Bar Reviews: White Horse and Welcome Inn

Link Here24th July 2014

White Horse is a low-rise restaurant on the left hand side of the car park of Eastern Grand Palace Hotel, which is on the crossing of Soi Khao Talo and the railway.

It opens in the late afternoon and is very spacious, but I was their only customer.

I surmise the restaurant is primarily intended for the busloads of (Chinese) tourists who stay at the Eastern Grand Palace Hotel.

They appear to have special prices for three bottled beers if you order them at once.

I doubt if many farangs will go there for more than one beer, if any.

I revisited Welcome Inn (formerly Boom Boom) on Soi Khao Noi.

Apart from some repainting, not much has changed. It appears to be owned not by one, but by two old Thai ladies, who were hanging around.

In the front four not so young girls were waiting for customers. They were friendly, but very average, carrying some weight, aai maak maak (very shy) and not very interested in the real thing , let alone smoking big cigar . I wonder why some people want to work in bars and what they can earn with that attitude.

One with a very minimal command of English had worked at Lek's bar on Soi Khao Talo for three months and another one had worked at Spanky's on Nana Plaza in Bangkok before farming in Buriram and giving birth to three children.

Barfine appeared to be the standard 300 baht and the communal room of the girls apparently served as a ST room.

There was one other farang customer, who seemed to know one of the owners.

Bottled Heineken 75 baht.



Shopping Area...

Ginza I and II up for sale

Link Here23rd July 2014
Ginza 1 & II are now up for sale. These are neighbouring GoGos on Walking Street near to Lucifer's disco.

In fact Ginza II should have already re-opened after police closure but didn't. Ginza I is still under police closure orders as it was sentenced to 2 months closure rather than the 1 month of Ginza II.



Half a Smile...

Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Sapphire Club

Link Here23rd July 2014
Sapphire Club is located on Soi 15 30m off Walking Street.

I looked in on the Sapphire club on Monday night.

I got blanked as usual. A couple of girls gave me half a smile. I was sitting at the stage on my own whilst most of the non dancing girls were huddled in the corner by the door, eating and chatting amongst themselves.

There are a couple of stunners in there but judging by how high they stick their noses in the air, I think you need to make an appointment to look at them.



The Booze Flooze...

Pattaya Bar Reviews: The Booze Lounge

Link Here22nd July 2014

On the Dark Side Booze Lounge is located on the left hand side of Soi Khao Talo when coming from Sukhumvit Road, between the main entrance and the secondary entrance of Eakmongkon Project 4, more or less opposite Soi 12.

In fact this double shophouse is a part of the latest development of Eakmongkon Project 4 along Soi Khao Talo.

It is a nice kind of gentlemen's club with a black-and-white Laurel and Hardy/Charlie Chaplin theme.

(Earlier this year Booze Lounge opened a subsidiary on Soi Buakhaow and they also appear to be linked to Oscars on Soi LK Metro.)

Most girls used to be rather chubby in not very inspiring black-and white dresses, but now they also have some good-looking girls in black-and-white striped bikinis.

One of those bikini girls, Rosi from Surin, is 28 years old, tall (over 1.70 metre) and slim with a very minimal bosom. She was a real sweetheart and told me that she started working at the Booze Lounge one month ago and that she had been a cashier (not going with customers) at Angel Bar Beer on Soi Khao Noi, which she found too raunchy.

The price of the en suite ST rooms (barfine included) was 350 baht for one hour.

In fact these are bedrooms for the live-in girls and in a rather deplorable state for being less than five years old; no light in the bathroom.

Bottled Heineken 85 baht.

I picked up a leaflet for a Booze Cruise . I wonder if this is going to pan out well because some years ago Sapphire Club on Soi 15 off Walking Street organised a girlie cruise and had to cancel it because of trouble with police.



Fisherman's Friends...

Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Airport

Link Here21st July 2014
Airport is located on Walking Street across from Soi Diamond.

Air Port Club has never been one of my favourites and will probably never become. I strongly doubt if they still open in the afternoon (except for curfew periods that is).

Air Port Club is still as noisy and cramped as ever before.

There were a number of overdressed hostesses and two or three bikini girls hanging around and the narrow front stage was full of coyotes. On the central jacuzzi were two or three below average naked girls at a time, begging for tips and waving a check-bin with some 100-baht notes in it.

On the mattress stage in the back were two or three naked fatties at a time, some of them unshaved. They welcomed several young two-week millionaires to their mattress, stripped them naked and faked a blow job.

No topless dancers.

The mamasan looked better than most of her staff. I did not see the stunners that are mentioned on some internet forums.

There was a lot of hassle from tequila girls and from overdressed girls scraping their throats. I offered them some Fisherman's Friend lozenges, but that was not what they wanted. When it became clear they were not going to get a lady drink, they tried to get 20-baht notes in their bras and pants. They reminded me of a song by ABBA: Money, Money, Money.

Thank goodness at Air Port Club expats are not bothered with ping-pong balls.

Bottled Heineken was still 135 baht.



A Walking Street Beacon...

Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Lighthouse

Link Here21st July 2014
Lighthouse is located on Walking Street towards the Beach Road end.

I popped into the Lighthouse on Thursday evening, they have a new bathtub feature with 2 naked girls washing themselves down.

The selection of girls is one of the best in walking street, with bikini, topless and naked girls, most of them very attractive,

staff very friendly, well worth a visit



Now Showing...

Living Dolls Showcase re-opens

Link Here19th July 2014
Living Dolls Showcase is a GoGo located near the Walking Street Tree, a shrine  towards the southern section of Walking Street.

It has re-opened on 18th July after a 60 day police closure.

There are now 83 bars around Pattaya with Thai girls dancing in bikinis or less.




Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Club Mistys

Link Here18th July 2014

Club Mistys on Soi 15 off Walking Street seems to have buried their coyote experiment, which is a good thing.

They now have three teams of about ten bikini and topless dancers each. The standard outfit is a black string with or without a matching top now. Several newcomers however still were wearing colourful beach bikinis with way too big pants.

For those interested: on 22nd July the funny (in)famous waitress Wa (number 201; waitresses are numbered from 201 on, so she is the leading lady of the waitresses), who shows everybody her string, celebrates her 30th birthday. There are some stories about her on internet forums.

And for those who like to spend a penny on charity, there is a donation box for the orphans at the Camillian Social Centre in Rayong .

Noteworthy about Club Mistys is that, if you are more or less a regular, if you barfine a girl you are linked to her by the staff and you are expected not to barfine other girls, unless your personal girl is unavailable or has stopped working there.



Big Bikinis...

Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Crystal Club

Link Here14th July 2014
Crystal Club on Soi LK Metro has become very quiet: fewer staff and less than a handful of customers.

There are still three teams of 7-8 dancers left now.

There is still a majority of bikini dancers, but many wear big tops and/or big bottoms.

The very fat mamasan does not seem to care about their outfits.

The topless and naked dancers have disappeared.

The price of a bottled Heineken has gone up from 110 baht to 125 baht.

The military junta has now banned GoGos from opening until 6pm.



Sensationally Overdressed...

Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Sensations

Link Here10th July 2014
Sensations A-GoGo is located on Walking Street nearly opposite Soi Diamond

On several boards Sensations is described as the most successful venture on Walking Street, but I can hardly believe that.

They do have lots of dancers: 10-12 on each stage at any time. Even at prime time there were at least five girls per customer and not many customers were spending lady drinks.

More than 90% were coyote dancers; of the bikini dancers about half went topless.

Several of the coyotes were wearing skin colour tights, apparently a new trend coming from Cowboy 2 on Soi Cowboy in Bangkok, where everybody does.

To say I did not see any top notch talent is an understatement.

One positive point: they have clean toilets.

No draught beer, bottled Heineken was still 135 baht.

No change was returned: automatic tipping?



Frozen Out...

Bar news from Walking Street and Soi 6

Kawaii Bar on Soi 6 has been acquired by new Japanese owners. The bar will continue to use the name Kawaii for the moment, but the owners intend to change the name to Ninja Joe when the opportunity arises.

The Fun Seeker GoGo located on Soi 6 towards the Beach Road end is only operating intermittently at the moment.

Meanwhile Apple Pub has re-opened above Walking Street with an entrance in the alley heading towards Soi Marine Plaza. The bar was recently acquired by Tony but was closed after a recent police raid.

Police raids are continuing with the V2O Ice Bar on the corner of Soi 15 and Walking Street. The bar has been slapped with a 60 day closure order and won't re-open until 1st September



Exit Button...

Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Upstairs

Link Here7th July 2014

Yesterday, after a long while, I visited Upstairs (formerly Utopia) on the Siberian part of Walking Street.

I saw three bikini dancers, four topless ones and two naked ones.

Apart from the naked (dry) jacuzzi dancer, all were plain ugly.

The Danish owner appears to sit there all the time, smoking and drinking.

The interior is still as impractical as before and the stools as unstable.

All the staff were extremely pushy for lady drinks and the ugly, very skinny naked dancer with a lot of piercings was even cheeky.

When it became clear I was not going to waste more money everybody stopped dancing and left the stage, probably waiting for the next customer.

I saw one “hostess”, but there does not seem to be a mamasan.

Draught beer 99 baht, bottled Heineken 149 baht, 2-for-1 offers for shots.

Note that to leave you have to push a button near the exit door; the only other gogo I can remember where customers are locked up this way is Sapphire on Soi 15.

A place to avoid.



Not So Super News...

GoGos open and close

Link Here6th July 2014
Super Girl on Soi Diamond is now closed for renovation for two months. Dancers and staff moved to sister bar, Super Baby , from 5th July. There were over 50 dancers in Super Baby and it brought in a lot of customers.

Meanwhile Harem A-GoGo on Walking Street has now re-opened after a 30 day closure by the authorities.

Sexy A-GoGo at the 2nd Road end of Soi 7 re-closed at the beginning of July. A bit of a shame as the bar's connections were promising Windmill style hands on entertainment.

So there are now 82 bars around Pattaya currently with Thai dancers in bikinis or less.



Crawling on the Darkside...

Pattaya Bar Reviews: Pat's Bar

Link Here6th July 2014
Exploring the Dark Side is not precisely a walk in the park.

Unless you visit a bar on your doorstep, you will need wheels : a car is the safest and, if you are not too scared, a motorbike will do too.

Only on Soi Nern Plab Wahn there is a bahtbus service (burgundy colour) and it does not seem to be very frequent.

At many places there are motorbike taxi ranks, but not everywhere.

I guess most bars will call a taxi if necessary.

Pat's Bar

Pat's Bar is on the right hand side of Soi Khao Talo when coming from Sukhumvit Road, near Soi 10/1, opposite the 7ELEVEN that is next to the main entrance of Eakmongkon Project 4.

It is an air-conditioned closed doors bar where much is possible: toplessness and fun in the bar. Girls appear to be unshaven.

There is a rather big terrace in front of it, but not many girls are sitting outside.

They appear to have two ST rooms. Bar fine is 300 baht, room included.

As opposed to many bars in the lower Soi Khao Talo area, most girls here seem to be eager to please and to go the last mile so to say and some are even cute.

Bottled Heineken 65 baht, lady drinks 80 baht.



A Peep at Pe Pe...

Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Pe Pe Club

Link Here3rd July 2014

The smallish Pe Pe on Soi 16 (Soi Arab) was very quiet (as to the number of customers), but very loud as usual.

I saw three models clad in black on stage, two of them silicone enhanced, who towards the end of their act took of their oversized tops.

After the models' stint, there were four topless dancers at a time on stage, also in black. I did not see full nudity.

I was told the models are paid 12,000 baht for 10 days, but have to make 50 lady drinks for free.

I also heard the topless dancers are freelancers who get 500 baht per night they show up, 50 baht for a lady drink and 100 baht for a barfine.

Barfines for models 1,500 baht, barfines for dancers 700 baht.

Bottled Heineken 140 baht, lady drinks 150 baht.



808 Victims...

Continuing police and military raids

Link Here1st July 2014

On Sunday evening at twenty to eleven a group of military, half of them wearing combat fatigues and helmets, and a couple of tourist police marched on Walking Street and went up the moving staircase at 808.

About two minutes later they came down the moving staircase escorting a skinny Asian male clad in black and posed several minutes for the waiting pack of news sharks.

OK, for the case of a raid or inspection I always carry a copy of my passport main page and visa extension and my Thai driving licences.

Also Flexx disco suffered a follow up raid to the raid widely reported a few days ago. It seems that the club was continuing to open when it had been told to close.

The police and military also organised a round up of girls and ladyboys plying their trade on Beach Road.

Meanwhile it is reported that Living Dolls Showcase is set to re-open on 3rd of July after being closed after an earlier police raid.
