As to Club Mistys on Soi 15, tiny Ae, the cute spinner from Buriram, has probably left as I saw a fat girl sitting outside with number 44, the number that used to belong to Ae.
That being said I am surprised the numbers
for the girls are recycled so fast.
I did not want to lose time and money there.
Instead I had a look at the extended Sapphire Club next door: a too dark shithole with dozens of mediocre, arrogant, double-topped and double-bottomed dancers in too big white, black and mixed "coyote" outfits, also some pushy shrews in
black lace open-crotch cat suits with a black bikini underneath, monotonous, too loud techno crap and fewer than a dozen patrons.
Big is not always beautiful.
On a positive note the greeters said
"Thank you, Sir." when I left.
The bar had a troubled time throughout its year of existence and closed on 20th June, initially hoping that it could reopen 4 days later. The plans didn't pan out and the bar stayed closed, now with a for sale
There are now 75 bars around Pattaya claiming to be GoGos.
On Soi Chaiyapoon (aka Chalerm Phrakiat 25 or Third Road Soi 25), more or less opposite the Thai karaoke Hot Man, The Den has opened.
I was told opening hours are 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. only.
I caught a glimpse
of the interior, which was dominated by red plush. \I think that in the past it has been a karaoke where well-off bargirls could hire a Thai gigolo. Hot man appears to be the last remaining of those karaokes on Soi Chaiyapoon.
That being said, I wonder who in his right mind would want to open a (posh ?) venue on the worst stretch of the (literally) dirtiest street in Pattaya.
I went into The Den..had one drink..I asked a nice girl if it was a BJ bar? She looked puzzled and said ...no...only drinking...WTF...
5555 yes indeed: "...who in their right
mind...in the dirtiest street..."
News and Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Palace and Pheromone
12th June 2017
Thanks to Dave
The Police were out in soi 15 again last night, they were booking
street vendors for not having a license I assume. They were still serving customers while the police were there.
Thanks to Dick Farang
On internet I found a picture of the ladyboy mamasan at Dclub in front of some dancers in different shapes and sizes.
On Walking Street Ginza A-GoGo is closed and FOR SALE.
There are now just 76 GoGos in the
Also on Walking Street the lights at Living Dolls 1 are still on, but the greeters have disappeared and the door is locked.
On Walking Street, at the previous location of Alcatraz
A-GoGo, a new place has opened: Miami . On the façade I still saw " อัลคาทราซ "
("Alcatraz" in Thai script).
It is a nightclub/disco this time round though, but seems to have a few house ladies in attendance.
On Soi LK Metro Gold Club (previously Amethyst Club and M*A*S*H A-GoGo) has
reopened once more. I wonder how long it is going to last this time.
At Palace A-GoGo on Walking Street the Happy Tuesdays still subsist, with all consumer drinks at 90 baht.
The interior looks still as poor as during my first visit.
About ¾ of the dancers were
double-topped and double-bottomed coyotes in white outfits and ¼ of them were clad in black string bikinis and going topless once on stage.
There was also a girl dressed in traditional Super Baby A-GoGo attire (transparent white
skirt without pants) but not unshaven, who also opened her bra on stage. No full nudity.
Bottled Heineken still 140 baht on other days, lady drinks 150-200 baht.
Nothing has improved at Pheromone Club on Walking Street, but the price of bottled Heineken is 165 baht now, the most expensive on Walking Street, a dubious honour they share with Living Dolls Showcase (but still cheaper than What's Up
The midnight show was worthless.
No nudity any longer, but some ugly bolt-ons with pasties.
A lot of pressure to buy shots.
Nobody seemed to stay
To be honest I would not have entered if it had not started raining.
Pattaya Bar Reviews: Cafe Racer and Scooter's on Soi LK Metro
7th June 2017
Thanks to Malcolm
A few new and newish bars on LK Metro
Café Racer . In between i rovers and Kaos. Has a motorcycle theme inside. Very busy at 6-45pm. First Singha I got was frozen solid but changed without any problem. Happy hours 4pm to 7pm and midnight to 2am. Singha B50. Normal price is only B60. A
lot of good looking girls working. Music was a bit loud for me but then I was the oldest customer in.
Scooter's now has another bar on LK Metro next to Lady Love. Pretty much the same as the original on Soi Buakhao with a complete Vespa and other scooter parts around. Happy hour up to 7pm, Singha B50. B80 after or 2 for B120 About 8 attractive
girls working. It was busy at 7-15pm. Music very loud. I am told there is another Scooter's on Soi 6. Website scootersbarpattaya.com
60s To Now is
what was the old White Room between Champagne and The Rock House. Didn't go in. Noticed it while I was sat in Scooter's.
Upstairs A-GoGo towards the south end of Walking Street has been dark since the beginning of June. Staff nearby suggested that the bar is now closed 'forever'.
There is an equally poor prognosis for Living Dolls One in a more central
location off Walking Street. It also has gone permanently dark, at least until a new pair of hands takes over. The demise is well reported by
Stickboy Bangkok .
Club Nevada on Soi Post Office is still going strong but has now cut down its opening
hours and now closes before midnight.
There are now 77 GoGo bars open and running in the Pattaya area.
In the small soi off Soi Buakhaow opposite the Sawasdee Siam building PinUp Club has opened at the previous location of Fairy Club and before that Baby Boom A-GoGo.
It is a single-unit shophouse, where the curtains are closed when
there are customers inside.
The interior has remained unchanged since the short-lived Fairy Club. Where the stage used to be in the Baby Boom days, is now a concrete bar counter with bar stools. Deeper inside, left and right, are
alcoves that can be curtained off.
At the rear is a big bedroom with a bed in the middle, but without a shower. I was told that upstairs are rooms with showers.
I saw four big girls in their twenties
ranging from fat to extremely fat. The non-available cashier, apparently the farang owner's ex, looked better.
For the complete duration of my visit I was their only customer.
Le Katai. The sign is still on wall, unlit but it's now the Devonshire Hotel with bar/restaurant on the ground floor.
Jenny Bar . The sign is till there, unlit but it's just the
entrance to Dolphin House.
What was Valentines , which used to be 4 units including Ned Kelly Bar , is now 2 double units. On the left is Ned Kelly Guest House and on the right the Travellers Rest both with bar/restaurants on the ground floor.
On the other side of the soi opposite Ned Kelly is a new bar Mamee . Small 1 unit, has Glass sliding doors with table tables outside and inside. Called in tonight. 4 average girls working one of which insisted on massaging my arm. She said it had
been open for 3 years so maybe it's just the sign that's new. Singha B70.
Next to Cheeky Girl is another new bar, Angie Bar & fast Food, opened 6 months ago. Nothing special, just another bar. Singha B75.
Next to Angies Bar, what used to be the U Turn Cafe is now Princess Kie . Opened
2 weeks ago. The oversize bar that was in the old bar has been cut back and a pool table installed. All the furniture is new. Still small though. Same sliding glass door. 3 tables inside and 3 tables outside. A young Thai guy opened the door for me who I
found out was the manager. Only one staff working called Sara. Singha B75.
Shanghai is open but not sure what as. Outside sign has happy hours from 10am to 8pm. Called in tonight, Tuesday at 7pm. Nothing going on inside and just
me and a couple of other customers sat outside. One of the girls came over and joined me and her English wasn't good. Asked her if it was still a gogo bar and she said 3 girls come on Thursday to dance. Happy (not too happy) hour Singha B75
Other bars still there and open: Bar De La Poste, Blue Heeler, Cheeky Girl, Le Private, Monkey Club, 1Red Bull bar , Retox, Today Bar.
On a sad note, I only found out last night, David, the American guy that
used to have the Rest Stop on Soi Chayaphun has died. He was seriously ill in a Bangkok hospital last year when I was here. He was a lovely man.
Soi 16 Disco is located on the corner of Walking Street and Soi 16.
This recently opened disco where the popular RollingLive2 used to be, has nothing more in common with the style of the previous establishment, except perhaps these 2
snookers upstairs (toilets are upstairs too).
Not many customers until 9pm, and those who came in didn't stay long, the air conditioners failing to ensure a comfortable temperature. This place seems to target young Thai customers
now, and not as before, the tourists and expatriates of Walking Street.
The musicians were making loud noise of the pop-rock Thai kind, not something I like so much. If there is nothing from the sixties or some hard-rock, I prefer
the traditional Luktung style of the Zab Cafe.
No hostesses, the service is provided by exclusively male staff. The cocktails are quoted at 240 baht, all bottled beers 150 baht and the soft drinks 90, no tabs.
I left the place somewhat disappointed, but things can change, and I'll give Soi16 another try in the coming weeks, maybe at a later time.
After more than a year Shanghai on Soi Lengkee has finally
(re)opened. It looks more like an ordinary beer bar than like a gogo and appears to close before midnight.
Due to a triathlon on Sunday 28th May 2017, businesses in the Walking Street area had to close early.
On Soi LK Metro Gold Club (previously Amethyst Club and M*A*S*H A-GoGo) has gone dark, hardly a surprise. On internet there has been a rumour that it was for sale once more at an undisclosed price, but most probably 6.5 million baht. Rent on its own
already appeared to be 160,000 baht per month. No other amounts or expenses were mentioned.
The GoGo count of 79 has now dipped below 80 for the first time in a while.
Trip report from Walking Street with a visit to Kinnaree
Thanks to John
The date was 4/29 -- 5/3 2017 in Pattaya, Thailand. This
was my first trip to the city. Here are my stories.
First stop was Windmill. I read about this GoGo online and found it was one of the craziest, so I wanted to go here first. That was a
mistake. I walk in to this small, crowded GoGo and see a guy shoving some kind of fruit up a girl's vagina. As I sit next to this gentleman and enjoy the show I look to my left and see another man massaging a women's ass in circles with his hands. Over
and over again. He does not stop for at least 10 min. I see a very sad looking girl kind of wiggling on stage and take a look at her for a while. Probably 18 -- 20 years old. After a while of wiggling the dancers switch up and she sits a few feet away
from me. I pat the seat next to me and she slides over. She doesn't speak a word of English and won't crack a smile no matter what I do. Very sad looking girl. I decide this isn't where I want to start my vacation and leave.
I make my way to Walking Street and find Fahrenheit. This place is much bigger than Windmill and all of the girls are HOT. I like it. Grab a seat, order a beer and watch the show for a while. No one approached me or bothered me. They let me get
settled in and relax. I see a sexy blonde walk by and call her over. After a very satisfying lap dance I buy her a drink and talk. I'm having a good time, but her ugly friend sits on the other side of me and keeps trying to get me to buy her a drink.
Have to tell her multiple times to go away. So I'm sitting and talking to this blonde girl for a while and eventually she has to get back on stage. Girls on stage aren't even topless and have on boy shorts, so I quickly I find another girl and buy her a
drink. Another pretty women comes over and sits on the other side of me. Buy them both a drink and just mess around with them for a while. Both spoke good English. I'm buying them both drinks and they're both checking out my rock hard cock. Rubbing it on
the outside of my pants. Even the women taking my drink order rubs my cock. I can't take it anymore and ask how much for long time. 1500 Baht bar fine + 2000 short time or 4000 long time. I say 3000 long time for one of the girls, they agree, and we're
on our way. A great first night on vacation.
Day 2 was spent at Skyfall. These girls were also very hot. I like the design of this place. Very platinum and modern looking. Like a white ice stage from what I can remember. I sit here by myself for a very long time and watch the girls dance
basically fully clothed. No one approaches me the whole time. I found it kind of odd. The girls here didn't seem to be approaching customers. I have my eye on one good sexy dancer but she keeps getting called over to other men. And then I find her. A
skinny, young girl with a pretty face that is dancing better than the others. Call her over and try to talk, but the music is WAY too loud. That was my biggest complaint with this place. Way too loud. So I barfine her and we're on our way. 1500 bar fine
+ 3000 short time. Didn't even negotiate. Just wanted to go as fast as possible. Worth every penny. Should have long time.
Did not like this place. Felt dirty. For some reason when I go to
one of these gogos I just start drinking and don't leave. I keep thinking someone good is going to come on stage while I drink. This never really happened. I finally get bored and call a decent looking girl over. Negotiated down to 3000 for everything
short time. Girl sucks. Keeps watching her watch. Not a good experience.
Went here during the day. This was a good one. Lots of girls. Met some friendly British dudes here. Had a chat with them while multiple girls approached us. Couldn't believe how many girls there were during the day. I eventually find one that catches
me eye. 1000 short time + 350 for a room. I'm thinking, wow, what a deal compared to the other Go Gos I had been going to on Walking Street. Take her in the room and do the deed. I didn't really like this. At this point I've learned that the quick short
time is not really my thing.
My best time was with the long time girl from Fahrenheit on day 1. So, I call her up and spend the rest of my vacation with her. Had to pay bar fine each day of 1500 and gave her 2000 to hang out with
me all day each day. She eventually started paying for beer and food on her own. Great time. Probably could have given her less each day, but I don't know, just felt like giving it to her. She was a good companion, spoke great English, and showed me
around Thailand in a way that I would have never got to experience without her. For this trip I was considering exchanging my timeshare through RCI and staying at Little
Hill Resorts International, but ended up staying at Hotel Baraquda instead. This was a guest friendly hotel with no joiner fees. Definitely on the higher end. When I return to Pattaya next year I'll probably step it down a notch and stay closer to the
beach and Walking Street.
A funny thing happened to me on Monday night as I was walking down Soi 15. I tripped up on a piece of concrete, I managed to save myself from falling over by grabbing the Misty's window. In the confusion I went into Misty's by mistake, I thought I'd
have a drink anyway. What a mistake, the place was dead.
There were 8 coyote dancers on stage most of them overweight or past their sell by date. There were 8 more sitting around of no better quality.
There was no interaction between girls punters (2), not even a smile came my way. To make thing's even worse, no check bins, they must keep it at the bar.
The draft beer was not very good. They need to clean the pipes.
The place is dead ,why don't they bury it? I drank up in 5 minutes and went into a decent place.
On internet there is a rumour that Gold Club on Soi LK Metro (previously Amethyst Club and M*A*S*H A-GoGo) is for sale once more. Rent appears to be 160,000 baht per month. No other amounts or expenses were mentioned.
Upstairs from Soi
15 and Soi Diamond Overmind Club has closed once more, for more than a week already. pparently the triple-tier bench seating did not help. On internet I read that a policeman in uniform was sitting among the scarce customers, not a good omen.
On the Dark Side the following bars have closed: Joy Joy Bar, Little Lion Bar, PP Bar, Rendezvous Bar.
At Passion Dance Club on Soi 6 I am all but an unknown face , nevertheless the old mamasan Nee told me their ST rooms
are no longer available.
Also on Soi 6, at the previous location of Working Girl, a new bar is taking shape: Nature Club.
Silver Star A-GoGo on Soi 8 has reopened after a recent police closure and is now keeping a low profile.
In the Jacuzzi were three girls in bikinis, still an unusual sight.
Of the dozen or so dancers
five were on stage at any time. Three of them were coyotes and the others, who were clad in white string bikinis, would open their bras on stage, apparently ready to cover up as fast as possible when needed.
I saw one tiny, young
and attractive bikini girl with a perfect shape. No full nudity.
Only three or four other customers and very little interaction. A gentleman was buying bottled beers for some girls, but left without barfining.
The TOLET (sic) near the Chinese-Buddhist crib was free of charge.
The Penthouse Hotel, Kitten Club (and Obsessions ) all in the same building on Soi Pattayaland 2 have been closed down since 7th April.
On the corner of Walking Street and Soi 16 (Soi Arab) a very noisy disco with a very original
name has opened: Soi 16. I was told that bottled beers were only 75 baht (perhaps a temporary promotion), but I could not be arsed to endure the noise.
On Walking Street Rock Street is still closed after the fire last
March, but their neighbours SkyFall A-GoGo have reopened.
Also on Walking Street the building, where The Moon Club used to be, is being gutted.
On Soi 13/4 (Pattayaland 2), where Classroom A-GoGo and some adjoining bars
used to be, a four-unit rock beer bar has opened, unsurprisingly named Classroom .
On Walking Street the Italian restaurant L' Italiano (opposite Alcatraz A-GoGo and, before that, at the current location of Infinity A-GoGo) has closed. The Russian clubs upstairs and the latter's aggressive touts in front will not have
At Club Mistys on Soi 15 off Walking Street not much if anything has improved, but their barfining prices are skyrocketing.
At my latest visit the big majority of the dancers were
double-topped and double-bottomed coyotes clad in white doing the Pattaya shuffle. There were also five or six dancers in black bikinis performing a lousy show unveiling their upper departments.
By far most of the females were
mediocre, but there were also some cute spinners. One of them was Ae from Buriram (number 44, 25 years, 147 centimetres, 35 kilogrammes, two children by two different fathers), not to be confused with the, also tiny, waitress Ae (number 205). She appears
to live in Siracha (35 kilometres from Pattaya) with her (probably lazy) parents and her children and returns home every night after work at 4 a.m. with the bahtbus on Pattayatai (10 baht) and a minibus on Sukhumvit Road (40 baht). That is at least one
gogo girl who does NOT hit the discos after work to earn an extra barfine-free penny (a popular myth on some internet fora).
I had been told that the funny and wild, string-showing waitress Wa (number 201) had come back, but I did not see her.
The useless hostesses seem to have disappeared.
The mamasans are still the same,
boring Jaan and apathetic Ning, and they seem to conspire to keep all girls inside, which results in five to ten girls per punter. I did not see a manager, but the security man was still roaming the place and even begging for lady drinks.
From time to time there was some (I guess heavily sponsored) toplessness on the bench seating.
After midnight the barfines were still 1,000 baht for coyotes and 2,000 baht for showgirls with them
expecting at least 2,000 baht ST.
At Club Mistys girls who are barfined are usually applauded when they leave in plain clothes with their customer, but this time I did not hear or see applause.
two years ago I still could barfine there at 600 + 1,000 baht ST, 600 + 2,000 baht LT or 1,800 baht in-house all-in.
In spite of good memories I am not going back in a hurry. On their still existing website, I found a picture of
the good old days.
Bottled Heineken 150 baht now, lady drinks (very small glasses of cola on the rocks) 150 baht.
