Balloons, flutes and fedoras...

Bar news and reviews

Link Here 30th December 2016

Roger "Braske" who, after running his own bar on Soi Buakhaow, has been a manager at The Place 2 Bee , at Vikings Corner Bar and at Road House 13 has returned to Belgium. He has undergone a medical treatment of about half a year and is probably staying in Belgium for the rest of his life.  Managing a bar (smoking and drinking included) is not always a healthy job.

Stars Bar

On Soi Khao Talo Stars Bar has changed hands once more.  It is Canadian owned now.

Most of the females there are wives/girlfriends of farangs now who do not want boom boom, but who still do want farang money.  There are no longer ST rooms upstairs anyway.

A complete waste of time and money. Unsurprisingly this bar is mostly deserted.

For those interested: there is again a pool table taking up most of the space.

Bottled Heineken 70 baht, lady drinks (small cognac balloons containing Singha Light) 120 baht (most expensive on Soi Khao Talo, where the norm is 80-100 baht).

Champagne Coyotes

On Soi LK Metro, where Club Malibu used to be, is now Champagne Coyotes , a glass-fronted beer bar.  From time to time one or two coyotes were performing on top of the counter. I could not be arsed to waste time and money there. I wonder when they are finally going to send those "coyotes" back to the prairie, where prairie wolves belong.

Bar de la Poste

On my latest visit to Bar de la Poste on Soi Lengkee there were only fatties and extreme fatties.  They were clad in white plastic fedoras and white T-shirt-like dresses without underwear. For a lady drink they would drop their dresses.

I happened to be the only customer and the ladyboy cashier ordered them one by one to offer me their services.

I was told that the barfines were 300 baht one drink included for the play corners and 400 baht no drink included for the ST room upstairs. Fees for the females were 500 baht for BJ, 700 baht for FS without anal and 1,000 baht for FS with anal.

Bottled Heineken still 80 baht, lady drinks still 110 baht.



Coach loads of space...

A report on peak season

Link Here 29th December 2016

Still quiet for the time of year, lets hope it lasts.

There were very few coaches of Chinese tourists, the Thappraya Road is usually packed with them,

I went into Peppermint and Sweethearts last night and both were quiet, Baccara was packed, but it usually is.

Sapphire Club was very Busy on Saturday night a lot of new girls wearing stocking , suspenders and G-string, very sexy. Supergirl was also busy on Saturday and you couldn't move in Sweethearts .



Stairway to Heaven...

Pattaya bar news and reviews

Link Here 24th December 2016

On Walking Street Naam Bar has disappeared due the new Midnight Pattaya development around Soi BJ.

On Soi LK Metro Armageddon Bar has closed and the builders are in. According to their website they will become a gogo, one more. As it is a double-unit shophouse it will at least not be as cramped as Kaos A-GoGo, also on Soi LK Metro.

On Soi 15 Club Mistys has had its fa ç ade aligned with that of Sapphire Club next door. I wonder what the empty space behind the new fa ç ade will be used for, an eating area for the girls ?

In front of Kiss A-GoGo on Soi LK Metro is a prominent BUSINESS FOR SALE banner now. Are they fearing going broke and looking for a sucker with more money than brains ?

On Soi Diamond the expensive Night Train Bar has become Pearl in the Soi Diamond . I wonder if the same prices apply.

The Windmill Club A-GoGo on Soi Diamond has an upstairs section now, which is a bit quieter than the ground floor.

On the left-hand side are factory-style metal stairs leading to it. Even the stairs to the defunct Tramps A-GoGo on the right-hand side were more comfortable.

The music was deafening, but the dancers were all but shy. No coyotes to be seen.

Near the new stairs I saw a for-sale notice for G-Spot Pattaya on Walking Street.

Bottled Heineken at Windmill 160 baht now.



Thumbs Up to Jungle Bar...

News from Soi 6

Link Here 22nd December 2016
The long running Thumbs Up on Soi 6 has given way to Jungle Bar. The new bar opened on 20th December 2016. The previous Thumbs up opened in April 2007.

The bar is noted as S52 on Soi 6 map .



Kaotic dress code...

Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Kaos

Link Here 15th December 2016

Bypass A-GoGo on Walking Street now appears to offer a draught beer at 90 baht.

On Soi LK Metro, where Club Malibu used to be, is now Champagne Coyotes , a glass-fronted beer bar. I could not be arsed to waste time and money there.

I wonder when they are finally going to send those coyotes back to the prairie, where prairie wolves belong.

At Kaos A-GoGo on Soi LK Metro nothing has improved.

The dancers seemed to be wearing as much as they liked and as ugly as they liked.

On average their quality was even inferior to these at the latest version of Pandora's, also on Soi LK Metro. To my surprise five of them went topless, but they kept their huge double bottoms.

The music was Thai crap from YouTube.

There were not many customers, but nevertheless there was a disgusting cigarette smoke stench.

Bottled Heineken 130 baht now, lady drinks 180 (!) baht now, small buckets with ping-pong balls 250 baht.



Full Moon Rising...

Pattaya Bar Reviews: Full Moon II on Soi Khao Talo

Link Here 13th December 2016

In a single-unit shophouse on Soi Khao Talo, left of Krungthai Bank, where once the open-fronted short-lived Check In Beer Bar used to be, a new closed beer bar has opened: Full Moon Bar II.

Whereas many bars on lower Soi Khao Talo open at 4 p.m. or later, this bar already opens at 1 p.m.

At the rear is a (too large) bar counter with some bar stools. On the right-hand side are high tables with bar stools and mirrors on the upper half of the wall. On the left-hand side is bench seating with some low round tables and fake windows on the wall.

Unusual for the Dark Side there is no pool table.

The lighting was rather dim.

The cashier was a bottle-blonde ladyboy.

I saw a couple of girls in the 30-45 age range and rather fat. They appeared to have come from the sister bar Full Moon Bar on upper Soi Khao Talo, right of The Bird Cage.

Contrarily to what the mamasan had told me shortly before the opening, there was no ST room.

I am not going back in a hurry.

Barfines 300 baht ST and 400 baht LT, the girls expecting 1,000 baht ST and 2,000 baht LT.

All bottled beers 55-60 baht during happy hour (1 p.m. to 5 p.m.), lady drinks 100 baht.



Bears take over Las Vegas!...

Las Vegas II is replaced by Big Hugs

Link Here 11th December 2016
Las Vegas II has been replaced by Big Hugs A-GoGo on 7th December 2016. Despite the name change the bar is still display for sale notices.

At an early evening visit there were 4 naked dancers in the bar, of which one was on stage. Draught beer is 50B.

The replacement does not change the GoGo count which remains at 82.


And on a sad note Mike has informed me that Larry, the owner of the Rock Hard A-go-go in Patong, Phuket has passed away.



Updated: Not over at Overmind...

GoGos opening around Pattaya

Link Here 7th December 2016
O vermind Club re-opened on Soi Diamond on 5th Dec.

Pacha (formerly Abbe's Bar) will also open as an A-GoGo in January (run by Shark Group).


Update: Coyotes

7th December 2016. Thanks to Ishi

Champ agne Coyotes , formerly Club Malibu, opened on Soi LK Metro on 6th Dec.

Frog A-GoGo will open on Walking Street ( see on Google Street View ) in December. It is between Frog Bar and a 7/11.



Bar closures around Pattaya...

Never mind! Overmind undermined by less than over kind agency fees...maybe...

Link Here 5th December 2016

Upstairs of Soi 15 and Soi Diamond, at the previous location of Shark Club A-GoGo, Overmind Club has gone dark once again. I doubt if the 10-day contracts at 15,000-18,000 baht were economically viable.

On Walking Street, left of Baccara A-GoGo, Abbe's Bar has closed. The signs have already disappeared.

On Soi LK Metro Armageddon Bar has closed and the builders are in. According to their website they will become a gogo, one more. As it is a double-unit shophouse it will at least not be as cramped as Kaos A-GoGo, also on Soi LK Metro.

There are now 82 bars around Pattaya claiming to be GoGos.



When will it all end?...

Armageddon set to become another new GoGo for Soi LK Metro

Link Here 30th November 2016

On Soi LK Metro Armageddon Bar has closed and the builders are in. According to their website they will become a GoGo, one more. As it is a double-unit shophouse it will at least not be as cramped as Kaos A-GoGo, also on Soi LK Metro.

Meanwhile in a single-unit shophouse on Soi Khao Talo, left of Krungthai Bank, once the short-lived Check In Beer Bar, a new closed beer bar is taking shape: Full Moon Bar II. It has the same ownership as Full Moon Bar on upper Soi Khao Talo, right of The Bird Cage.



If you're passing by...

Bypass A-GoGo opens on Walking Street

Link Here 26th November 2016
Bypass A-GoGo has opened on Walking Street at the alley leading down to Happy A-GoGo. It is next door to Beach Club.

 It is a new build GoGo at the space that was previously Crazy Beer Bar.

The bar opened on 25th November and is the 84th GoGo in Pattaya



Post mourning...

Pattaya returns to normal

Link Here 26th November 2016

Beach Club and Happy

I popped into Beach Club and Happy on Wednesday and they are nearly back to normal, just a lack of Girls.

Baccara, Walking Street

I popped into Baccara on Saturday and it's still the same, all Coyote Dancers. Even the usually topless girls were coyotes.

No nudity and no Show, I've no Idea why.

Lady drinks now 145b

Club Nevada, Soi Post Office

The month of mourning has now completed and Nevada is back to normal. Half the ladies are dancing fully nude again, and the other ones are wearing small bikinis (but most of them are happy to remove some pieces of it for a tip). Those who had to cover up during this month of mourning didn't suffer from a salary cut. Nice.

The bar has also replaced the mirror on the ceiling above the dancing floor, but nothing else has changed.

Soi 6

Meanwhile Soi 6 is nosier than ever, there were vast amounts of girls keen to get to work.

Update: Back Happy

Thanks to Dave

Everything normal in Happy last night, including the naked showgirls.

Barfine in Sweethearts  still 1000 and boom boom still 2000. It must be the cheapest in walking street, and some very beautiful girls.



Sweet Ass...

Another new bar for Soi 6

Link Here 21st November 2016
Sweet Ass Bars opened on Soi 6 on 20th November 2016.

It is located on the south side of the soi at the end of the first block when starting from 2nd Road. It is next door to Z Bar.

The bar was previously Locos, and before that, a ladyboy bar called Sweet Kiss.



Dark Amethyst...

Amethyst goes Dark on Soi LK Metro

Link Here 17th November 2016
Amethyst Club A-GoGo re-opened on Soi LK Metro on 3rd November but has already gone dark. It was reported dark on the 15th and 16th of November.

If it stays dark, the Pattaya GoGo count will drop to 82.

However the numbers will soon be bumped up by Bypass A-GoGo which will soon open on Soi Happy where Crazy Beer Bar was previously.



Miss B Haven...

Another new bar for Soi 6

Link Here 15th November 2016
A new bar has opened on Soi 6 named Miss B Haven.

It opened on the 11th November and is located mid soi on the north side, next door to Chilli Bar




Normal service resuming...

Pattaya bar news and a review from Geisha

Link Here 14th November 2016
The first month the King's mourning period has now ended and bars are set to resume more normal operation. The Walking Street GoGos will now be closing 3am. Presumably the opening times will revert to the normal 8pm, or thereabout

Several dancers from the defunct World Wide A-GoGo on Beach Road have relocated to Silver Star A-GoGo on Soi 8.

Lita Bar , the ladyboy bar that had closed on Soi BJ off Walking Street, has reopened on Soi Post Office (Soi 13/2).

Off Third Road, in a soi more or less opposite Soi 33 (where Le Carré Blanc used to be), a smallish bar has opened: Geisha Club Bar Hôtesses .

The door was opened before I could ring the doorbell.

Most girls were in their late thirties and wearing big bras and big pants under their chaste dresses. No nudity, nothing special on offer. No other customers.

I saw a coaster of a Belgian beer Keizer Karel . (Emperor Charles V was an enthusiastic beer drinker and already legendary during his lifetime. His Antwerp residence Prinsenhof (Prince's Court) now houses the main campus of Universiteit Antwerpen. When he later moved from the Low Countries to Spain a number of brew masters accompanied him.)

Barfine (room included) 300 baht, full service (no anal) 1,000 baht.

Bottled Heineken 105 baht, lady drinks (cola on the rocks) 130 baht, a tad expensive for the kind of venue.

By comparison: at Working Girl on Soi 6 the new prices are 89 baht for bottled Heineken and 125 baht for lady drinks.




Passion for sale...

Pattaya Bar News: Diamond Sports Bar and Passion Dance Club

Link Here 12th November 2016

On Soi Diamond the previous location of The Sea gogo has become Diamond Sports Bar, which is always deserted when I walk past.

In the toilets of Passion Dance Club on Soi 6 is a for-sale notice.

The dancers at Passion Dance Club were ringing the bell themselves, drinking tequila shots and getting as drunk as lords. Instead of dancing they were sat on the stage. One of them could hardly reach the bench seating where she fell asleep.

It looks as if the old mamasan Nee cannot keep her girls under control.

Bottled Heineken still 115 baht.



Just follow your nose...

Pheromone Club opens on Walking Street

Link Here 7th November 2016
Pheromone Club opened on Walking Street on 6th November. It is located about opposite to Peppermint.

The bar is a reincarnation of Amethyst which recently closed on Soi LK Metro with the intention of moving to Walking Street. And some of the dancers and managers are indeed familiar faces to customers of Amethyst.

Note that the old Amethyst venue has just re-opened on Soi LK Metro, but this is under new ownership and is not connected with Pheromone.

There are now 83 bars around Pattaya calling themselves GoGos.




Amethyst re-opens on Soi LK Metro

Link Here 4th November 2016
Amethyst Club A-GoGo has re-opened on Soi LK Metro on 3rd November. The venue had closed last July and was put up for sale.

Presumably the GoGo is now under new management as the bar is offering cheap draft beer at an all night price of 60 Baht. Previously Amethyst sold itself as an upmarket show bar with prices to match.

So there are now 82 bars around Pattaya calling themselves GoGos.



Tasteful service...

Geisha bar opens off Pattaya Tai

Link Here 3rd November 2016
Geisha BJ bar opened on 2nd November 2016. The bar has ownership connections with 007

Drinks are from 60Baht. BF 300Baht(including room). from 1pm till midnight.

The bar is located on Soi LK Pavillion off Pattaya Tai near 3rd Road.



The show must not go on...

Thai government announces that the entertainment industry can resume normal operations on 14th November

Link Here 2nd November 2016

I went to Walking Street last night. I walked down Soi Diamond, no music coming from any bars. The only sounds were coming from The Windmill.

I went into Happy, nothing had changed, I was going to have one beer and leave but a couple of the Showgirls, Me and Ta came over for a drink, so I stayed for 2 beers. there was no show while I was there.

I asked a senior member of staff, the man who stands at the door and shows you in, how long the mourning was going on?  And his exact words were until the 15th of next month. This sounds like bad news, most of the time there were just 20-25 punters in, most had 1 drink and left.

I popped into Sweethearts, which was the same as always.

[The government has now confirmed that the entertainment industry will be allowed to resume normal operations on 14th November].



Updated: No outward signs...

News of life in Pattaya during a period of mourning

Link Here 28th October 2016
Dave comments on an outward sense of peace and quiet around Walking Street

Soi Diamond was very quiet with only 1 bar playing music.

Not much change in Walking Street either, just a few more punters.

I popped into Windmill , that was full of Naked Ladies, unfortunately it was packed. There was no where to stand up, let alone sit down.

Happy was covered up though, virtually the same as Monday, with all coyote dancers but with smaller bras. I checked out Baccara and Peppermint and they were the same,

Living Dolls One had some topless girls but they are all long in the tooth and overweight.

I went home up Soi 15 which was completely empty, it is usually full of street food vendors and motorcycles.

There were a few Punters in Thappraya road bars, but no music.

Meanwhile Dick Farang notes a few changes:

For those interested: Lita Bar , the ladyboy bar that closed on Soi BJ off Walking Street, has reopened on Soi Post Office (Soi 13/2).

On Soi LK Metro, White Room has reopened as an open beer bar.

Update: Happier everywhere but Happy

27th October 2016. Thanks to Dave

Walking down Soi 15 last night some bars were playing music.

I popped into the Sapphire club. It was very lively, the Girls were dressed as normal and the place was fairly full of punters having a good time.

Followed into Electric Blue. It was also very busy with some very attractive naked birds on show. All the Punters having a good time. A large Girl, with very big tits came and sat next to me, I bought her a drink but I prefer skinny Birds but she spoke good English. Mama sang Nan is back after 2 yrs at home.

I popped into Baccara, to see if the mourning was continuing. Unfortunately it was. One of the Showgirls came over for a drink, she was very unhappy, no drinks, no tips, no barfines and no punters. She's been working in the Happy group for 8 yrs, I asked her how long the mourning was going on for and she said 3 months. If that's true, I think Happy group will be out of business.

All the a-go-go's that are not in mourning are doing great business. From what I have seen the only a-go-go's affected by mourning are the Happy group. As I walked past Whats Up, there was a naked man on stage being ravaged by Coyote dancer.

Updated: Pattaya goes dark...

In respect of the death of the King

Link Here 18th October 2016

Following the announcement of the death of the King of Thailand the bars were closed on Soi 6 on Thursday night at about 8.00pm local time.

About a half hour later most of the girls had changed into their civvies and were plying their trade on the Soi as normal in front of the darkened bars. Presumably there were no bar fines to pay although I already had company at his time so did not venture out to find out.

Later in the evening we had the mother and father of thunder storms with torrential rain so I suppose it was bad luck all round for the girls who need to work to pay the rent and buy essentials. It remains to be seen how long the bars will be closed.

Walking street and more or less all major bars and clubs similarly closed on Thursday night.

Speculation on the likely impact on Pattaya night life is rife with just a few related official proclamations coming through. Phuket bars have been asked t close for three days (one of which is already marked as a day for bar closures due to the 16th being a Buddhist special day). Various sources suggest that bars will be generally able to open thereafter but there remains a question mark about those that offer entertainment. The government has called for a 30 day period without entertainment. Maybe the practicality of people and companies needing to make a living will lead to some lesser period, particularly in a tourist resort.

Update: Still dark but open

14th October 2016.

Most of the bars in Pattaya have re-opened with the restriction that they keep the neon signs dark and generally keep music and other external activity down to a minimum.

Update: Still quiet

18th October 2016. Thanks to Dave

It was very quiet in walking street last night.

There were some topless girls in Supergirl but they were just standing on the stage chatting.

In Happy all the girls were wearing large coyote clothes, it was very quiet in there (hardly surprising).

Sweethearts was the best ,it was full and as normal apart from having the curtain at the entrance closed.

All the bars in Thappraya road were quiet, no music and no punters. There were a couple of people in the Pig and Whistle,there weren't even any street food vendors.

There were no parties of tourists in walking street either.



A Change of Overmind...

Overmind A-GoGo re-opens after a short renovation

Link Here 17th October 2016
Overmind with entrances on Soi 15 and Soi Diamond has re-opened after 5 days of renovations and some new furniture.

There are currently 81 bars around Pattaya that claim to be GoGos. There are a couple more on the way on Walking Street. It is reported that the new GoGo about opposite Peppermint will be called Pheromone Club.

Meanwhile Diamond Sports Bar has opened at the venue that was recently The Sea A-GoGo.



Sea Changes...

Pattaya bar news

Link Here 12th October 2016

Last night Overmind Club with entrances on Soi Diamond and on Soi 15 was dark.

Off Walking Street on Soi BJ between the gutted buildings Lita's Bar has closed. I wonder how long Wildcats A-GoGo also on Soi BJ will still be going on.

Prices at Le Bordeaux on Soi Day Night 2 have gone up once more. The cheapest set menu is now 590 baht. Last time I walked past I saw one (ONE) couple inside.

On Walking Street, right of the previous location of Champion A-GoGo, a new gogo seems to be taking shape. That venue has been for many years the German restaurant Bierkutsche and after that a shoe shop.

On Soi Diamond the previous location of The Sea gogo is to become Diamond Sports Bar.



Nice news...

So Nice A-GoGo opens on Soi Yamato

Link Here 5th October 2016
So Nice A-GoGo has opened on Soi 13/1 (Soi Yamato) in the venue that was previously Las Vegas III. The bar opened on 4th October and describes itself as 'The Fun Bar'.

So Nice is run by new owners who have left the bar pretty much unchanged since the previous incarnation.

So nice to report that there are now 81 bars around Pattaya labelling themselves as GoGos.



Champagne News...

Pattaya bar news and lady drinks prices survey

Link Here 2nd October 2016
On the Siberian part of Walking Street, opposite Soho Square, Crazy Russian Girls has closed.
