Pattaya goes Cinderalla...

A resurgence of coronavirus means the closure of Pattaya's GoGos and midnight closing for beer bars


Link Here31st December 2020
Chonburi Governor, Phakarathorn Tienchai on Monday issued an order which places restrictions on bars, pubs, clubs and other venues deemed to be high risk.

The order was issued after Chonburi health officials reported 22 new COVID-19 cases on Monday, all of which are understood to be linked to the outbreak at an illegal gambling in nearby Rayong.

The Chonburi order states from now until 4 Jan, bars and pubs can remain open until midnight, but they can only serve food and drink and no dancing is permitted. Alcohol is not banned.

At all venues, strict screening measures must be in place, which includes registration on the Thai Chana app, hand sanitizer stations, temperature checks and social distancing.

For venues such as go-go bars, where dancing is a primary offering, owners are advised to adapt to the new rules or close temporarily. Some nightclubs and go-go bars in Pattaya have already announced plans to close.

Just before this announcement Ishi noted that Panda A-GoGo on Walking Street had closed. Perhaps Panda heard the news before anyone else.

Serenity A-GoGo closes on Soi Buakhao


Link Here21st December 2020
Serenity A-GoGo re-opened under new management on 1st November 2020 but has now closed again on 9th December 2020.

Presumably it proved to be a little bit too quiet.

 

 

Bearly missed...

Panda A-GoGo set to return to Walking Street


Link Here15th December 2020
Panda A-GoGo on Walking Street near Soi 14 is set to re-open on 18th December. It has been closed since the coronavrirus lockdown strated.

 

 

Re-glazed...

Glass House A-GoGo set to re-open


Link Here11th December 2020
There are reports that Glass House A-GoGo on central Walking Street is set to re-open on 11th December.

GoGo status seems quite stable at the moment with few reports of openings and closings.

 

 

 

Your shout...

A binary challenged GoGo...

11010 A-GoGo on Soi Diamond


Link Here30th November 2020
A new GoGo is recruiting girls on Soi Diamond.

11010 A-GoGo is enigmatically named and promotional material challenges readers to guess the  significance of the name. There is a hint that the bar is targeting Chinese visitors so perhaps that may be relevant to the name.

 

 

Time gentlemen please...

Mews gentlemen's club calls last orders


Link Here29th November 2020
The Mews Gentlemen's Club off Pratamnak Soi 6 has announced that it will be closing at the end of November. Post covid trade is reported to be insufficient to make it worthwhile.

The staff will move to the nearby Lotius Bar at the top of Pratamnak Soi 4.

 

 

More water under the pier...

The Pier beer bar complex looks set to return


Link Here28th November 2020
Pattaya's beer complexes are generally in a sorry state and have been particularly hard hit by Thailand's closed borders. So it is good to report rare good news of a re-opening. Workers are currently reworking The Pier Complex at the entrance to Walking Street from Beach Road.

On a less positive note Climax Bar is re-closing at the corner of Soi LK Metro and Soi Buakhao.

Exotic Kink...

News from Soi LK Metro


Link Here20th November 2020
A new bar is opening on Soi LK Metro called Exotic LK . Its sign and banners state that it will be entertaining with dancing girls but it is not sure whether these are the coyote variety or the GoGo variety.

Kink re-opened after the coronavirus lockdown maybe in August. The bar now closes on Monday and Tuesdays, and opens at 9pm Wednesday through Sunday.

 

 

Updated: Walking Dolls...

Dolls LK Metro re-opens but shares dancers and staff with Dolls Walking Street

Serenity A-GoGo on Soi Buakhao opened after the end of the coronavirus lockdown in July 2020 but closed again on 8th September 2020. The GoGo has now re-opened under new management on 1st November 2020.

Dolls LK Metro re-opened after the end of the coronavirus lockdown on 2nd November 2020. However the dancers and staff are shared between Dolls LK and Dolls Walking Street.

Dolls operates on LK Metro from Sunday to Thursday and on Walking Street on Friday and Saturda.

Update: Lady drink and bar fines

9th November 2020. From Pattaya Addicts

There is a new barfine structure at Dolls LK.  The bar fine is 800 (equivalent to five lady drinks at 160B each) for ST and 1120 (equivalent to seven lady drinks) for LT. Each lady drink you buy reduces the amount for the take away fee.

 

 

Boom bust...

Baby Boom A-GoGo re-closes


Link Here7th November 2020

It closed again on 6th November 2020 with the following announcement from the owner:

Friday 6 Nov will be the last night that Baby Boom will be open. Due to covid 19 health and landlord problems we will close 7 Nov.

 

 

No more vice...

Miami A-GoGo goes dark


Link Here26th October 2020
  Miami A-GoGo is located towards the 2nd Road end of Soi 13/2 (Soi Post Office).

The bar re-opened after the coronavirus lockdown but closed again on 19th October.

Perhaps it should be noted that when bars are running in a minimal way trade can easily be disrupted by a temporary lack of staff and closures may turn out to be temporary.

 

 

Pattaya re-infested...

Shark A-GoGo reopens after lockdown


Link Here18th October 2020

Shark A-GoGo re-opened for the first time after coronavirus lockdown on the 16th October. The venue is located on Soi 15 near Walking Street.

The venue is part of the French group of GoGos and has adopted some of the dancers from other sister bars including Fahrenheit,

 

 

Updated Rock quieter and Serenity returns...

GoGos opening and closing


Link Here14th October 2020
Trading conditions are not good in Pattaya in post coronavirus lockdown times and it has been reportedt went Far East Rock 2 on Soi 13/2 (Soi Post Office) which went dark in early October.

Meanwhile Serenity A-GoGo on Soi Buakhao opened after the end of the coronavirus lockdown in July 2020 but closed again on 8th September 2020.

The bar is now set for another attempt. An announcement says that the GoGo will re-open under new management on 1st November 2020.

 

Update: Far East Rock continues

14th October 2020. Thanks to Ishi of www.pattayagogos.net

Far East Rock 2 opens nearly every day, (though there have been a few blank days).

Their opening time is from 3pm till 10pm but they sometimes close before 10pm.

Meanwhile Bachelor A-GoGo on Soi LK Metro has been opening daily since 12th October (prior to this the GoGo closed on Mondays).

 

 

Updated: Second Heaven...

Heaven Above returns as a gentlemen's club


Link Here13th October 2020
The long running and popular Heaven Above A-GoGo closed a few months ago on Soi Diamond. Now the GoGo's connections have created a new venue bearing the same name on Soi Boomerang off Soi  Buakhao (by Pattaya City Hospital).

Heaven Above now describes itself as a gentlemen's club, but Soi Boomerang is a new entertainment area that features bars that blur the line between gentlemen's clubs and GoGos. So it seems likely that Heaven Above will go with the GoGo trending flow.

Update: First night

13th October 2020. Thanks to Ishi of www.pattayagogos.net (Japanese language)

Heaven Above opened on 9th Oct. I saw topless dancers on the stage on the opening day, but nobody was on the stage on 11th Oct.

 

 

Lighter news...

Lighthouse A-GoGo re-opens on Walking Street


Link Here5th October 2020
Post lockdown opening doesn't seem to have worked out for Glass House A-GoGo and it re-closed on 27th September 2020.

There's been further reshuffling in the French Connection GoGos on Walking Street with Lighthouse A-GoGo re-opening on 2nd October. Bliss A-GoGo has ended it's partial weekend opening and is currently closed every day.

And in an update to previous news, it is Panda Club that is open on Walking Street, (the venue that was once better known as Tony's Disco). Panda A-GoGo has yet to re-open after the coronavirus lockdown.
