Pattaya City Hospital.

The bar is located on Soi Boomerang which is off Soi Buakhao opposite Pattaya
City Hospital. The soi has become a bit of hub as there are now several gentlemen's clubs open with Golden Time also offering GoGo dancing.
The GoGo has a happy hour from 6pm until 9pm and offers 2 for 1 on house spirits.
Hollywood is long established disco now located on Soi Phet Trakun in North Pattaya.

The venue will continue to open its restaurant and karaoke rooms though.
The Devil's Den has been a notable fixture of Soi LK Metro since 15th May 2009. It is famed as a bar specialising in a short time double helping of ladies, who often offer treble locations for pleasure seeking.

Pattaya Police called 130 entertainment operators to a meeting at City Hall to make sure that they are still on guard against COVID 19. This comes the same day as what appears to be the first locally spread case in Thailand in 101 days was discovered.
Pattaya Police Chief Colonel Khemmarin Pitsamai said at the meeting:
We must strictly continue on the COVID- 19 precautions. After two months, we have found that most of our local entertainment operators have followed those measurements but not
one hundred percent.
However, if any of them missed one of the precautions, we will verbally talk to them first. If they missed it for the second time we will take legal action which may include fines or other penalties.
The punishment for
breaking the Emergency Decree is up to two years imprisonment and the fine is up to 40,000 baht. The punishment for breaking the disease control law under the Communicable Disease Act is imprisonment up to one year and fines up to 100,000 baht.
Measures discussed at the meeting were mostly familiar, wearing masks, using the Thai Chana application to check in, social distancing, limit the number of people at tables, midnight closures and other items.
The Classroom on Soi Pattayaland was a coyote style dancing bar many years ago. And now will return to the format. The bar announced:
Starting Tuesday, September 1st 2020 we have 20 lovely new recruits to serve and entertain you in
The Classroom Music Lounge from 4 pm to midnight daily. New menus and longer kitchen hours, discounts on ice-cold buckets of your favourite bottled beverage, and with no tourists in town you can be assured a room for the night at a great discount with
our Don't Drink & Drive program.
Big party to celebrate the changes on Friday, September 4th.
With no return for foreign visitors soon, Pattaya's GoGos have been trying to find a new normal in how to best operate within the constraints of the fixed numbers of expats in town.
Some GoGos have come up with ideas for limited opening.

Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

Golden Time , currently a gentlemen's club will open as a GoGo bar on 29th August. The bar is located on Soi Buakhao opposite Pattaya City Hospital. The bar has a
Facebook Page but it does not yet mention the GoGo news.
Pattaya's famed Walking Street has re-branded itself as Driving Street.
There are no longer any foreign visitors or hoards of tour party walkers, so the Pattaya authorities are trying to appeal to Thais replacing tat stalls with street food carts.
So from now on its is open to traffic and parking. Though it is one way only to reduce accidents.
After a crisis meeting with local operators, mayor Sontaya Khunpluem said it was obvious that the country was not open and there were no foreign
tourists. So Thais need to be the new normal for Walking Street.
Local dignitaries took part in a ceremony last night at 7pm to open the street to traffic and parking.
Far East Rock 2 is located at the 2nd Road end of Soi 13/2 (Soi Post Office)
The GoGo re-opened after the end of the coronavirus lockdown in July. However it later closed again but this has thankfully proved to be a temporary glitch and as of 4th July
the bar is now open again.
Queen Club is located at the centre of Soi LK Metro.
The bar opened after the end of coronavirus lockdown in July 2020 and celebrates its 8th anniversary on 8th August 2020. The anniversary was actually on 26th May but the GoGo was shut due to the
lockdown at the time.
Dolls A-GoGo has several branches around Pattaya and the girls have been on the move.
Dolls Soi 6 closed on 30th July. The dancers moved to Dolls Walking Street which opened on 31st July.
Love 66 A-GoGo, perhaps seeing an opportunity on Soi 6
after the departure of Dolls Soi 6, opened on 31st July.
Presumably customers were a little too few and far between as Far East Rock 2 on Soi 13/2 closed on 31st July.
Paradise opened on Soi LK Metro on 1st Aug.
Meanwhile a good
number of gentlemen's clubs have re-opened, perhaps because of their short time rates being somewhat lower and more accessible to expats than the GoGos. A notable example is The Den Gentlemen's club on Soi Chayapoon which re-opened with the girls from
Touch Agogo on 10th July. Some topless girls and G-string girls are to be found walking around the club.
Some bars opened across Pattaya on 1st July but the GoGo bars did not seem very keen on opening under the government's rather onerous 22 miserable rules coupled with a lack of visitors in town.
It seems that a few will give it a try after
the religious blank days on the 5th and 6th July. Lady Love on Soi LK Metro has promised to open on 7th July at 7pm (perhaps an auspicious date and time).
Update: Tantra A-GoGo is open on Walking STreet
4th July 2020.
According to reports oon Pattaya Forums, Tantra A-GoGo is doing a little trail blazing on Walking Street. Early reports are understanding of the difficulties for the bar, but ultimately the stanoffish social distancing is not making for a good
experience. The rule forbidding dancers from sitting with customers is unltimately the biggest bugbear.
