After half a year and a name change (from Nature Club) Nature Bar has finally opened on Soi 6, where Working Girl A-GoGo used to be. As it was deserted, I was not interested in spending time and money there.
On Soi LK Metro
Chaos A-GoGo on the previous location of Kiss A-GoGo has not opened (yet).
At the latest location of the Italian restaurant L' Italiano, opposite Miami/ex Alcatraz, the banner for a Marilyn Monroe A-GoGo has long
On Soi Khao Noi Soi 9 Dusk Till Dawn has gone dark.
On Walking Street Rock Street has reopened, noisier than ever.
Snippets Sports Bar & Cafe is a single unit next to Scooters Bar on Soi LK Metro and opened 10 days ago. Everything new inside with a horse racing theme. One side is glass with a door onto the passage
to the Metropole Apartments, the other wall has horse racing photo's. 2 big screen TV's, one with Aussie horse racing and the other with pop music video's at a reasonable sound level.
Singha B70. about 5 girls working and no
hassle from them. It's owned by an Aussie guy who used to be a jockey.
The Pook Swan House P32 Bistro & Bar on Soi Buakhao have taken over the single unit between themselves and Scooters and called it Pook 2 Bar. I didn't go in because it was staffed by ladyboys as was the old Pook bar. Looks like the owners now want
the best of both worlds.
Pacha A-GoGo was a plush looking GoGo development by the French group behind Mandarin, Lighthouse, Fahrenheit and many others. It never actually opened with commentators suggesting that there is no moratorium on new GoGos on the sea side of
Walking Street. The building has now posted a large for sale sign so that seems to be the end of the project.
On Soi 6 there has been a re-jig to the Beach Road end. Dusk Till Dawn Bar has become MJ Kitty Girl Bar . Mandarin next door has closed and the girls have moved to MJ Kitty Girl Bar.
Meanwhile on Soi 15 off Walking Street The Dollhouse
has opened what it calls the XXX VIP Lounge. This seems to be an idea to combine a GoGo with a western style strip bar, hopefully being able to be a bit more raunchy than most western countries allow.
On Soi Diamond, at the previous location of Super Baby A-GoGo, Yes A-GoGo has opened.
When I arrived, the second night of their existence, I was greeted by a disgusting cigarette smoke stench.
interior has been completely refurbished, but the central stage looks like a clone of the Super Baby stage, be it without the metal swing.
The jacuzzi in the back and the small round stages have disappeared, but there is a smaller
stage now right of the entrance.
Yes A-GoGo looks more spacious than Super Baby A-GoGo did, but this effect is probably due to all walls being completely covered with mirrors.
The dancers were going on
stage in teams and stayed at the same place for their complete dance stint of 15-20 minutes.
There were two teams of about ten double-topped end double-bottomed coyotes each, clad in white. There was also a team of about fifteen
dancers in diverse and mostly too big white string bikinis and white stay-up stockings, who, when they took off their bras on stage, appeared to have covered their nipples with lip-shaped pasties, not a nice sight.
I saw a lot of
fat bellies and saggy bodies and also several ridiculous silicone balloons.
Some bikini girls were hawking shots at 150 baht and the waiters were constantly checking if the beer bottles were still full.
There were on average about a dozen customers.
There were no price lists available and nobody seemed to buy lady drinks.
The crappy music was way too loud and the air conditioning way too cold.
Nobody stayed long.
On a positive note: even small change was returned spontaneously.
Draught beer 75 baht, bottled Heineken 175 baht, a bit over the top.
A lot of people must be reading your Blog, Peppermint was very lively on Saturday night, with a lot girls and Punters having a good time.
Crazy House was full to the Rafters, lots of attractive Girls some Topless or Naked.
I looked in the new place ' Yes ' on Soi Diamond, I won't call it an a-go-go as it was full of Coyote Dancers. There was extremely bright lighting and very loud music. I turned straight round and walked out.
I Followed into the Sapphire
Club , with more subdued lighting and quieter music. Iit was very busy, with Sexy Girls wearing Stocking's, Suspender belts and G-strings. Which personally I find very Arousing. No overdressed fat Coyote Dancers here.
A series of impossible to understand announcements from the Thai government had drinkers and smokers very worried about today's reworked sin taxes. The government provided very alarming numbers about tax rises without specifying the entire equation.
However the tax rises have now been announced and it seems that drinks will rise somewhat more modestly than was feared.
Taxes have risen most for imported wine which will now cost abut 100 Baht more than yesterday.
Beers as have been hit by about 2 or 3 Baht a bottle whilst bottles of spirits have risen by up to 30 Baht depending on price. Cigarette tax has
been increased by up to 15 Baht.
These price increases have been reported at retail stores rather than bars. It is not yet clear how the tax increases will map onto more expensive prices in bars and GoGos.
Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Lighthouse and Sapphire Club
13th September 2017
Thanks to Dave
Flap flops at Lighthouse
I popped into The Lighthouse on Walking Street on Friday night. Some lovely girls on show. There were about 10 Coyote Dancers who danced for 30 minutes.
music was very loud and Boring, there was no interaction between girls and punters.
Then the Girls in Black fishnet underwear came on, again the girls were very pretty and showing a lot of flesh. Several girls had a total body
covering of black fishnet with no other underwear. One girl had a cat flap, showing a very nice pussy. Unfortunately their dance only lasted 10 minutes and then back to the endless Coyote Dancers and loud music.
With a little
tweaking it could be a very good a-go-go but I don't think it will happen.
At the moment it's a complete Flop despite the beautiful girls.
Big tops and big tops at Sapphire
I think Dick Farang must have gone into Misty's by mistake, calling Sapphire Club a dark shithole and the Girls mediocre.
I popped in on Saturday around midnight. It was very nearly full. Everyone
was having a great time. There was a very good atmosphere, with the bell being rung several times.,
The Girls are very friendly and sexy. Yes they wear big tops but there are a lot of busty girls with cleavage on show and plenty
of beautiful Bums to look at.
Comment: Censored whilst claiming to be uncensored
From Dick Farang
To answer Dave's question:
No, I did not
confuse Sapphire Club with their neighbour Club Mistys.
And no, I am not a Member of the Sapphire Addicts Club.
And no, I am not really interested to know if a gogo (or any venue for that reason) is British
owned, Irish owned, Australian owned, Thai owned, Thai-Chinese owned or whatever.
Pretty sure it is where the the old Monkey Club 1 was has now opened as Duangjai Bar . Still a single unit.
Looks newly decorated. Pool table. 5 half decent girls working but I
couldn't make up my mind about 2 of them, very tall but no hassle from them. Singha B70. I
was the only customer at 8.30pm but after about 15 minutes a motorbike pulled up outside and 2 girls rushed in. One of them rang the
bell so drinks all round and after a couple of minutes of Thai screaming and shouting and laughing they jumped back on the motorbike, drinks in hand and left.
Update: Duangjai Bar also on Soi LK Metro
12th September 2017 Thanks to Malcolm
Duangjai Bar is also next to The Cave on Soi LK Metro. Same name as the one I found on Soi Lengkee a couple of days ago. Must be connected. The logos on the
signs are the same but in reverse. Didn't venture in because of the ladyboys sat outside which might confirm my doubts about 2 of the girls on the Soi Lengkee bar.
Only 4 months since I was last here but a few changes on Soi Chayaphun
Single unit. about 6 decent girls working, one of which tried her best with me. Music was very loud. Singha a whopping B95. I think the new owner has forgot which Soi he's on when he did the price list. Only had the one
Double unit. Also advertises massage. 2 ladyboys working as well as a couple of girls. 1st ladyboy tried his luck and soon gave up but the second was a bit more persistent. Suddenly got busy at 8.30pm and I realised there was a pool match
against the Boxing Roo. Music pleasant, not too loud. Singha reasonable at B60. Owned by a friendly British guy.
Next to Maggie May. Single unit. Pool table. Singha OK at B60. Laptop on bar for customers to put
music on. Opened on 9th August. Nice pleasant bar. No hassle from the girls.
Far East Rock A-GoGo was closed on the 3rd September with a team of builders/wreckers laying into the GoGo stage and seating area.
The GoGo has posted a sign: Notice to our customers, Closed 1 month for renovations.
The GoGo girls
suggested that the upper floors of the building are being converted into a hotel, but that the GoGo should resume after a month. The extent of the destruction in the GoGo area leaves some room for doubt that the GoGo will return.
In the meantime
there are now 74 GoGos operating around Pattaya.
On Soi Banlang Soi 12 The Scrapyard Bar has never
reopened after an apparent police closure.
On Soi Khao Talo Nat Bar has been renamed P&A Bar .
On Soi Khao Noi Goldflower Bar has reopened as NOY-T Bar.
Soi Chaiyapornwithi White Oyster Lounge has become T he Black Pearl Bar.
On Soi Khao Talo Soi 9 PPBAR has reopened.
With the Den on Soi Chaiyapoon closing early in the evening, I finally made it there in the daytime.
Shortly after 2 p.m. the, not so young and not so slim, birds were fixing their make-up and charging their mobiles.
Several months after their opening there were still workmen with ladders around.
Because of several pillars it is difficult to get a good view. In the middle is a bar counter surrounded by stools. On the
right-hand side I noticed some pool tables. On the left-hand side is red plush bench seating with straight backs, which does not look very comfortable.
Contrarily to what I had read on internet fora (all-in price of 1,000 + 500
baht for ST), I was told there was no ST room available, but there was a room nearby at 250 baht. Barfine 400 baht ST and 1,000 baht LT. For themselves the fuglies wanted 1,500 baht ST. An unattractive, shapeless, 41-year-old woman, who had been selling
Buddhist paraphernalia in Bangkok, told me she wanted to go with me ST for 2,000 baht, room included.
As soon as the females realised I was not going to barfine or waste money on lady drinks, they wanted tips in their pants and
There were two other customers, quietly drinking their beers.
A lo-so experience.
Bottled Heineken 95 baht.
The Butcher's Arms Pub on Soi
Buakhaow is for sale now. It had been going downhill in recent times. The drunken Thai female, apparently the owner, was a pain in the arse.
On Soi Diamond the Swiss restaurant Swiss Food has reopened. They have two daily
specials now: a very cheapo one at 320 baht and another one at 460 baht. There are better choices available in Pattaya.
On Soi Diamond, at the previous location of the micro gogo Only O, a glass-fronted bar with white tables and
some unused chrome poles has opened: Addiction Club. I saw a dozen of girls inside, but no punters.
Candy Bar has taken over from Pat Bar on Soi 6. It opened on 25th August and features ladies, not lady boys.
The old Sapphire Lodge on Pratamnak Soi 4, opposite the Asia Hotel, was once set to become Club Tropicana but that
never opened. Then venue now seems lost to the gentlemen's club circuit as it has now become a Chinese restaurant.
Meanwhile Club Nevada on Soi 13/2 (Soi Post Office) has reduced operations to a single shift and opens from 1pm until 11pm.
The single shift means that there is now a single barfine at any time of day, set at 700 Baht. There is no nudity on show at the moment.
On Walking Street, right of Sweetheart's A-GoGo, one more superfluous narrow gogo has opened: Tantra A-GoGo.
In the middle are two cheapo, white, rather low stages, each of them with six chrome poles, one of them fixed to the
ceiling. On both sides is, unsurprisingly, very cramped bench seating. I was lucky to be seated on a bar stool along the wall with a high table next to it. Although there were only a handful of customers at Tantra, it was crowded, only because it is so
There were two teams of mediocre, more-than-overdressed, double-topped and double-bottomed coyotes.
One of them was Lek Dracula, who started as a greeter at the long gone Hooty's A-GoGo on Walking
Street and after that has been working at the beer bar joints in front of Pattaya Beer Garden and at Mandarin Walking Street.
There was also a team of (mostly old and ugly) so-called models in black lace lingerie and black stay-up
stockings, several of them silicone enhanced, performing a lousy show to the tune of Zombie. The average quality of the string-bikini dancers at Passion Dance Club on Soi 6 is much higher.
Already two days after the (soft) opening
I noticed a terrible cigarette smoke stench. The music was the usual crap. I think not many people will appreciate the lighting with constantly alternating colours.
I surmise Tantra is a new
venture of the Bryan Flowers Empire.
Barfines (for coyotes only, I guess): 1,500 before midnight, 1,000 after midnight.
BEWARE: automatic tipping: small change is not returned spontaneously.
Bottled Heineken 140 baht, lady drinks 150-200 baht.
Casino Cream Club (formerly Cream Club and Baron Club) near the end of Soi Diamond has been dark for several nights, in fact largely overdue.
So now the GoGo count stands at 74.
At the Happy gogo group the following prices apply now:
bottled Heineken 160 baht, bottled Leo 150 baht, lady drinks still 150 baht.
On Soi Naam Keng, off Soi Buakhaow, Road House 13 has reopened.
The Windmill Club A-GoGo on Soi Diamond has been closed by court order. In front are
some Thai boys now, saying closed 30 days and trying to re-route passers-by to Annabelle's on Walking Street. Perhaps the closure of Windmill is a late consequence of a raid on their ST rooms some months ago.
On Soi Lengkee The Monkey
Club has closed (for sale).
The Butcher's Arms Pub on Soi Buakhaow is for sale now. It had been going downhill in recent times. The drunken Thai female, apparently the owner, was a pain in the arse.
On Soi Diamond the Swiss
restaurant Swiss Food has reopened. They have two daily specials now: a very cheapo one at 350 baht and another one at 460 baht. There are better choices available in Pattaya.
On Soi Diamond, at the previous location of Super Baby A-GoGo, a
new gogo is taking shape: Yes.
On Soi Diamond, at the previous location of the micro gogo Only O, a glass-fronted bar with white tables and some unused chrome poles has opened: Addiction Club. I saw a dozen of girls inside, but no
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.
Meanwhile Dave notes that he saw the Identical twins from the Windmill, outside
Misty's on Saturday night. They said the Windmill will re-open in about 3 weeks. He also reports few punters around on Saturday. Even Baccara was half empty.
Pattaya Bar and GoGo News and Reviews: WakaWaka, Club Electric Blue and Babydolls
31st July 2017
Thanks to Dick Farang and Paul
Although Pattayaland (with the exception of Boyztown on Soi 13/5) has become a ghost town, a new place, WakaWaka , has opened on Soi 13/4 opposite the entrance of the defunct Obsessions.
I cannot remember if that is the
same place as the long gone Rodeo Girls or next door. What I do remember is that at Rodeo Girls the stage was against the wall on the right-hand side with double-tier bench seating on the other side, whereas at the nearby Legs Club the stage was on the
Although I liked to have a drink at those two places from time to time, I have never seen a bird there who could catch my fancy.
When I arrived at WakaWaka there was a foul smell on the
terrace as if lots of people had being smoking outside.
Having a look inside, I saw an empty, low stage with two chrome poles on the left-hand side and two old fully dressed fatties sitting on the right-hand side.
I decided to make a U-turn.
Club Mistys on Soi 15 is celebrating their 20 th anniversary.
I saw an unconscious girl being carried away, probably “maaw maak maak”.
Club Electric Blue A-GoGo on Soi 15 is one of the scarce gogos where you still get a decent portion of nudity.
On the main stage, just behind the entrance, two teams of some ten naked and topless dancers were cavorting.
On the other stage were two teams of four or five overdressed double-topped and double-bottomed performers. About ½ of all dancers went naked on stage, about ¼ were topless and about ¼ were overdressed. However, the average quality of the naked bodies
was rather poor.
With a bit of luck you will find a MILF with a much better shape at Bamboo Bar on Pattayatai. Typically, the overdressed dancers at Club Electric Blue A-GoGo were the pushiest ones begging for lady drinks.
Not many customers, but still more than at most other places.
The music was horrible. Very cramped toilets.
Bottled Heineken still 150 baht.
Meanwhile Babydolls is set to -reopen on Soi 15 after a police closure. It will re-open on Thursday 3rd August.
Ginza A-GoGo has re-opened on Walking Street. It has been closed since a change of owners in May earlier this year.
Avoid driving under influence, the alcohol limit being 050. One of my fellow countrymen has been lucky:
nice police officers escorted him to an ATM where he was allowed to withdraw 20,000 baht tea money.
On Soi 6 Dusk Till Dawn has gone dark.
The Swiss restaurant Swiss Food on Soi Diamond has
been dark for several nights already, perhaps temporarily.
On Soi 6 Nature Club has never opened, but they already have changed the signage to Nature Bar.
Air Port Club on Walking
Street being closed until 27th July 2017, the greeters try to persuade patrons to climb the stairs to Playgirls upstairs.
This long narrow venue has one very long stage in the middle with an unused jacuzzi behind it and
very high bench seating on both sides.
To my surprise the place was full.
The dancers, most of them double-topped and double-bottomed, but also a number of bikini-clad and some topless ones, where doing the
Pattaya shuffle until two pussy-trick performers replaced them. The dancers I have seen were varying from very mediocre to extremely ugly. However, they were all but shy and eager to get some 20-baht notes in their bras and pants (front and rear).
Between Soi Khao Noi and Soi Nern Plab Wahn, on the edge of two incorporated (rather neglected) villages, New Dao Bar/New Dao Café/New Dao Resto has opened at the location where Dao Bar/Café closed over half a year ago.
village on the Soi Khao Noi side has its entrance about 100 metres before Le Rouge when coming from Sukhumvit Road.
There is a 7ELEVEN minimarket on the corner.
The village on the Soi Nern Plab Wahn side
has its entrance about 100 metres before the petrol station when coming from Sukhumvit Road.
The layout of the restaurant, swimming pool and bar has remained unchanged: the girlie bar can still be accessed via the restaurant or
via the back alley.
On my visit I only saw freelancers around the forty-year mark, some of them fat. I did not see ladyboys this time.
I happened to be their only "real" customer as the other
farang inside had come with his Thai wife for playing pool.
They still have ST rooms included in the 300 baht barfine.
I was told the current owner is a short fat Belgian.
appear to sell several Belgian beers, including Tripel Karmeliet on draught at 150 baht for a small glass.
Be aware that Belgian special beers have an alcoholic content higher than that of the local produce.
I advise buying Belgian quality beers, such as Kwak, Tripel Karmeliet, Westmalle Tripel or Duvel, at Friendship Supermarket or BigC (from memory 170-180 baht per 33 cl. bottle) and sample them at home.
Dao guest house rents out rooms from 590 baht per night.
I did not try their restaurant, but the one at the old Dao was disgusting and too expensive, as about any "restaurant" on the Dark Side.
