Listing the bars of Pattaya

The following reviews are those that I come across on the web, in guide books, from contributors and of course from my own visits. Reviewers may be unreasonably harsh and bar owners may present a rosy picture of their bars...so don't take everything at face value...go and see for yourself.

On Soi Khao Noi the gate at Angels Place remains closed and there is a big sign now: PRIVATE CLUB/MEMBERS ONLY, whatever that may mean.

  Review from Dick Farang, April 2015: As in Bikers Place

At the previous location of Bamboo Bar on Soi Khao Noi Angels Place has opened.

It has become more a kind of a bikers' place.

In the open-air bar the sofas near the street have been replaced with high tables and bar stools and everything still smelled the fresh paint.

There were a cashier who was not available and a fatty and two oldies who used to work at Bamboo Bar before. At the rear of the complex is still a (mostly empty) beer garden.

Barfine (room included) still 300 baht.

Bottled Heineken 80 baht from 70 baht before.

aqua deymie dusk

Aqua Deymie

Soi Neun Pleub Wan
Soi Banlang Soi 12 (right fork of Soi Nern Plab Wahn Soi 47)

From 1pm

 Aqua Deymie

Another bar established by the people that brought you the noted Dao Bar. Complete with swimming pool. The pool is overlooked so maybe not for the naughty stuff.

 Review from Dick Farang, April 2017: Water adverse

aqua deymie staffNot much has changed at Aqua Deymie on Soi Nern Plab Wahn Soi 47/Soi Banlang Soi 12.

The outdoor swimming pool was still deserted and probably only suited as a breeding ground for mosquitoes.

Everybody was locked up in the air-conditioned darkness.

The females were unremarkable at best and only interested in lady drinks. Their attitude was worse than that of state officials.

I was reluctantly told that the ST bar fine (room included) was 350 baht with 1,000 baht for the provider.

Lady drinks 119 baht (standard) and 135 baht (beer).

They still sell imported (mostly Belgian) beers at 240-260 baht. Bottled Heineken 95 baht.

 Review from Dick Farang, April 2014: Water adverse

Yesterday I visited Aqua Deymie.

As usual most girls (some young spinners there) were sitting inside and not keen on using the outdoor swimming pool.

At the back are several ST rooms.

Bottled Heineken 85 baht.

Lady drink (also bottled beer) 120 baht.

ST bar fine (including room) 300 baht,

Belgian beers (Kwak, Orval, Kasteel, etc.) over 200 baht.

Exact location of Aqua Deymie is Soi Banlang Soi 12 (right fork of Soi Nern Plab Wahn Soi 47).

  Note from Dick Farang, April 2014: Belgian beer

The next best selection of Belgian beers after Mai Lu Si in Soi Buakhao is at Aqua Deymie on the Dark Side, which has a fridge with a transparent door for them.

Aqua Deymie seems to be owned by a French language Belgian, Alan. There are family connections to Blu Cat Bar.

  Comment from Pattaya-Live, June 2013: Thumbs Up

Counted 11 girls, only 2 playing with their phones. A couple of customers, nice atmosphere, thumbs up

  Review from Billy Baht, January 2013: Good and Bad

Very nice bar, well appointed, clean and air conditioned.

My visit was around 8 pm and I was promptly waited on and received a cold San Mig Lite at a very reasonable 59 baht.

I ordered another beer and the girl asked me for a lady drink. I politely declined and she sapped Pai leury keeneoaw! Get out cheap charlie! I pretended not to notice and ignored her. Another girl came over I bought her a lady drink and was tempted to take her short time, but truth be told, the comments from the little bitch put me off, so I check binned and left.

Pity management has spent so much to equip a very nicely laid out bar but then allow some girls to abuse customers.

  News June 2012: Late Happy Hour

The bar has bottled beer at 39 Baht and lady drinks at 69 Baht from 8pm until close. However the lady drink offer is limited to sniff of beer. A more substantial lady drink is 120 Baht. Barfines are 500 Baht LT, 300 Baht ST.

  Review from Pattaya Secrets, August 2010: Nice lookers

Good decor and good pizza. and the 15 girls are the best looking on the dark side.

  Review from Pattaya Secrets, March 2010: Nice lookers

Plenty of girls some real nice lookers. The place is done out very well.

  News from Dick Farang, April 2015: Closed

Bamboo Bar on Soi Khao Noi has been closed for more than one week already.

  Review from Dick Farang, September 2014: Half open bar

Bamboo Bar is the last bar on the right-hand side of Soi Khao Noi before the junction with Soi Khao Talo when coming from Sukhumvit Road.

It is a German owned slightly worn half-open bar with a private car park in green scenery.

At my previous visits I have only seen oldies there, but this time I was greeted by a 22-year-old girl, O from Lopburi.

At first she was very shy and even wanted to switch off the light. Later on she told she had two daughters of three and five years and she showed she could still squeeze some drops of milk from her nipples.

In the past I have been told that the current owner pays the girls a salary of 2,000 baht a month, whereas the former owner paid nothing at all (apart from lodging, tips and shares of lady drinks and barfines), what made the girls virtually freelancers.

Barfine (room included) 300 baht.

Bottled Heineken 70 baht.

  Comments by FG, Sep 2007: Create Your Own Fun

Parking – Open-air Bar – Garden-tables - all is well looked after and making a comfortable stay with accommodating service (girls). A/C rooms and shower across corridor are all excellent and spacey – marble flooring.

European owned, managed by Thai consort. Definitively positive in every aspect – pricing appropriate. Excellent and discretely piped in music from the sixties to the nineties. Fun, entertaining from midi to mid-night. This is the place where you create your own fun and luck!

Banana Bar

Soi Khao Noi

The Barking Frog

Soi Siam Country Club
(the very last bar at the eastside of Mabprachan Lake)

 The Barking Frog

Beer bar and restaurant.

  Review from Dick Farang, August 2014: The Last Bar

The Barking Frog is the very last bar at the eastside of Mabprachan Lake, off Soi Siam Country Club.

The nearest bar further on, if you continue some five kilometres along the northern side of Mabprachan Lake, is the White Oyster Bar.

When I arrived some Thai men were drinking Thai spirits and soda outside and some Thai children were playing. I found this rather disturbing, but after this expedition to the Dark Side's Ushuaia, I urgently needed a pit stop.

The Barking Frog is a rather primitive building with a bar area at the left side and a restaurant or rather a snack bar at the right side.

Inside the bar were a forty year old girl who was friendly enough and three younger lazy McDonald's creatures. As is popular at the Dark Side, they were playing music from YouTube.

For those interested: barfine 300 baht, no ST rooms.

Bottled Heineken 80 baht.

Bee Bar

Soi Khao Talo

 Bee Bar

Beer bar noted in September 2014 but closed by Februray 2017.

 Beer and Coffee Bar

New in 2010. Still going in 2014. The bar didn't impress an early customer who got a stream of abuse after pointing out a small overcharge. But otherwise clean and offer very cheap drinks, no girls though.

Soi Khao Talo
(
upper end of Soi Khao Talo on the corner of Soi 13)

 The Bird Cage

Beer bar, still going in September 2014.

  Review from jj, May 2011: 

Bird Cage thankfully did not follow the lead of the movie of the same name. All 7 of the staff seemed to be the real thing although one was questionable.

Newly open in April 2011, not much happening as yet. Has seating for only about 10 punters at bar and two tables. Pool table takes up most of the floor space. Should consider putting a sofa against the back wall.

Ladies were friendly (LD 80 baht) if a bit over the hill. Of course, often with age comes experience but hopefully not boredom. The two gals playing pool were totally inept so it seems that a punter could make a few points if he knows his way around a table.

Discreet location could be a plus as soon as they find their niche. Off road parking in rear. ST room(s) upstairs.

  News from Dick Farang, June 2016: Closed

The Black Pearl Bar

Soi Chaiyapornwithi
(at the northern side of Mabprachan Lake)

 The Black Pearl Bar

short time bar which took over from White Oyster Lounge in 2017

  Review from Dick Farang, August 2017: Birthday suits

former black pearlsOn Soi Chaiyapornwithi White Oyster Lounge has changed hands and has been renamed The Black Pearl Bar.

Many moons ago it was known as Black Pearl 2 and by then there was also a Black Pearl 1 on Soi Siam Country Club not far past Butterfly Bar (see old map right).

The new owner is a skinny former bargirl sponsored by an Australian.

The modus operandi has remained unchanged with naked girls diving into the swimming pool picking up coins for a total of 200 baht.

Most girls, several threeholers among them, are still there. Also the petite bottle-blonde tomboy cashier is still there. First time I saw her, I thought a farang choir boy had got lost.

The ST bar fine is still 300 baht room included and the girls are still happy with 1,000 baht. The four rooms upstairs are again available, but the room downstairs is in use by the owner now.

Open from 11 a.m. till 10 p.m.

Bottled Heineken still 80 baht, standard lady drinks still 100 baht.

black sheep


The Black Sheep

Soi Khao Noi
(eastern end)

 The Black Sheep

New Zealand owned bar. New for 2009. Changed hands in mid 2012.

Free pool table and bottled beers around the 50-60 mark. Plenty of girls most days and can be fun in the bar.

  Review from Dick Farang, August 2014: Sporadically ST

The Black Sheep is the last bar on the left hand side of Soi Khao Noi before the entry gate of Wat Bunyasamphan when coming from Sukhumvit Road.

Before I had never seen interesting or interested girls there, but this time there was a threeholer, Mam, who had worked at German owned Ying Bar on Soi Lablae off Soi Nern Plab Wahn. She was 35 years old and not particularly beautiful and had her back full of Buddhist tattoos, but she knew how to deliver the goodies and seemed to really enjoy her job.

Barfine (including the ST room) was 300 baht.

The ST room on the first floor was very spacious with also a sofa in it; the bathroom was separate. I think there was another ST room on the second floor, but as at most bars at the Dark Side ST rooms seem to be used only very sporadically.

I think that most punters only come for drinking beer and playing pool.

Bottled Heineken was 50 baht (happy hour).

  Note March 2014: Evenings only

The bar seems to be lacking any girls in the afternoon

  Review from jj, April 2013: The Exception to the Rule

Just before Songkran, the Darkside seemed to be suffering a slowdown with many ladies returning home for the festival.

The exception was BLACK SHEEP on Soi Khao Noi. There seemed to be a full complement of ladies and they were working hard to please the steady stream of customers.

Word must be passing about that this is the place to be in these pre-Songkran days. A tip of the hat to the ladies there.

  News from inpattayanow.com March 2013: Back to Business

Some while ago a sale had been agreed but it dropped through with courts getting involved. The upshot is that Black Sheep is now back in the possession of the original Kiwi owner, Paul.

The bar has been completely refurbished and an entirely new staff has been employed. Business has apparently been brisk since then.

  News from John, July 2012: Not Happy

The bar has just changed hands, everything was great till I got the check bin and they had overcharged me. I pointed this out in a good way. It took three attempts to get it corrected and I didn't even hear an apology.

I have been there many times in the past and 4 times this month I left the usual 20 baht tip, not happy, I sat with two ladies who I bought two drinks each. I gave them 100 baht tip to share and they weren't happy either. I will go somewhere else.

  News June 2012: Closed due to a legal dispute

The girls have moved to Kik bar

Black Swan Bar

Soi Khao Noi
(opposite Soi Khao Noi Soi 9)

 Black Swan Bar

Angel Bar Beer became Black Swan Bar by January 2016.

  Review from Dick Farang, January 2016: Dirty Duck

Angel Bar Beer on Soi Khao Noi opposite Soi 9 has changed hands once again and has become Black Swan Bar.

The music was a bit loud for a closed beer bar and of the four girls I saw, two were totally uninterested.

Barfine 300 baht ST. The ST room upstairs is no longer used, but they do have a not particularly cosy, free room about 100 metres up the soi.

Bottled Heineken 80 baht, lady drinks 120 baht.

Blue Cat Bar

Soi Khao Talo

 Blue Cat Bar

New bar for 2012. Ownership connections with Papagayo. Barfines 300 ST, 500 LT. Beers are 70 Baht and lady drinks are 100 Baht. Seems to be building up the customers in 2013. Still going in September 2014. Blue Cat Bar became Pacha in October 2014.

  News from Ishi, October 2014: Now Pacha

Blue Cat Bar became Pacha in October 2014.

  Review from Dick Farang, October 2014: Beware

BEWARE: Last time I visited Blue Cat Bar on Soi Khao Talo Soi 9 there were only ladyboys inside, with the exception of the cashier that is.

I will never understand the rationale behind creating confusion by hiring girls and transvestites at the same bar (such as their neighbours KiK and USABAR also do) or gogo (such as Miami A-GoGo on Soi Post Office and We Are No 1 A-GoGo in Jomtien).

Bottled Heineken 80 baht.

Blue Moose

Soi Khao Noi Soi 9

 Blue Moose

Beer bar with non-takeway girls. Nicely kitted out, good aircon and seems to be a meeting bar for golfers. Still going in August 2016.

  Comment from Dick Farang, August 2016:  Unsuitable

This bar is as boring as it can get. Not suited to horny farangs.

Soi Khao Talo
(1km from Sukhumvit)

1pm-1am

boozeloungepattaya.com

 The Booze Lounge

Aircon bar and gentlemen's club. New in summer 2013. Ownership connections with Infinity A-GoGo.

  Review from Dick Farang, November 2015: Another Fine Mess

The Booze Lounge on Soi Khao Talo is only a shade of its former self.

The bikini girls have long gone.

At my latest visit there were some cigarette smoking Brits and a couple of unattractive, stand-offish hostesses, only interested in lady drinks served in small liqueur glasses.

During most of my working life I have had to tolerate cigarette smoking colleagues. I wonder why I would waste time and good money now on breathing polluted air.

I doubt if the owners have got the right business acumen as they have had to give up already The Booze Lounge on Soi Buakhaow and Oscars gogo on Soi LK Metro.

Bottled Heineken still 85 baht, Chang and Leo 40 baht during happy hour.

  Review from Dick Farang, July 2014: The Booze Flooze

On the Dark Side Booze Lounge is located on the left hand side of Soi Khao Talo when coming from Sukhumvit Road, between the main entrance and the secondary entrance of Eakmongkon Project 4, more or less opposite Soi 12.

In fact this double shophouse is a part of the latest development of Eakmongkon Project 4 along Soi Khao Talo.

It is a nice kind of gentlemen's club with a black-and-white Laurel and Hardy/Charlie Chaplin theme.

(Earlier this year Booze Lounge opened a subsidiary on Soi Buakhaow and they also appear to be linked to Oscars on Soi LK Metro.)

Most girls used to be rather chubby in not very inspiring black-and white dresses, but now they also have some good-looking girls in black-and-white striped bikinis.

One of those bikini girls, Rose from Surin, is 28 years old, tall (over 1.70 metre) and slim with a very minimal bosom. She was a real sweetheart and told me that she started working at the Booze Lounge one month ago and that she had been a cashier (not going with customers) at Angel Bar Beer on Soi Khao Noi, which she found too raunchy.

The price of the en suite ST rooms (barfine included) was 350 baht for one hour.

In fact these are bedrooms for the live-in girls and in a rather deplorable state for being less than five years old; no light in the bathroom.

Bottled Heineken 85 baht.

I picked up a leaflet for a Booze Cruise. I wonder if this is going to pan out well because some years ago Sapphire Club on Soi 15 off Walking Street organised a girlie cruise and had to cancel it because of trouble with police.

  Prices, August 2013: Heineken

Heineken was reported to be 79 Baht a bottle with no Happy Hour deals.

  Note from Pattaya-Live, June 2013:

Drinks are reasonable with a Leo low life at 49b and only 40b during happy hour 1 till 6pm. About a dozen girls most of them lookers. 350 for ST room including barfine. 500 Baht takeout.

 The Brass Monkey

New for 2013.

  Review from Dick Farang, May 2014: Not Cold Enough

Explored during the heat of the day due to curfew.

The Brass Monkey is a rather spacious bar on Soi Nern Plab Wahn, about 100 metres before the Riverside Bar, also at the right hand side when coming from Sukhumvit Road.

It is owned by a Dutchman from Amsterdam, Jack.

They also sell Dutch and Indonesian snacks, such as gehaktbal and bamischijf.

The bar seems to be popular with Dutch and Belgian expats.

Bottled Heineken was 75 baht.

(I got one extra beer on the house because the owner thought the beer was not cold enough, but for me it was OK.)

There was only one girl who could catch my fancy, but she completely ignored me ... until I left.

Butterfly Bar sign

Butterfly Bar

60/12 Siam Country Club Road (8km from turn off from Suhkumvit)

Noon-9pm

Free buffet on Tuesdays

 Butterfly Bar

Short time bar

  Review from Dick Farang December 2015: Valued discretion

Butterfly Bar off Soi Siam Country Club is still doing business as usual and about the cheapest bar on the Dark Side, for barfines and lady drinks that is.

They still open (and close) early and have females in all ages and sizes at a uniform price of 1,000 baht for ST. All of them are freelancers, who seem to value the discretion of the premises. Some of them appear to commute from as far as Rayong.

Barfine (ST room included) still 220 baht (50 baht for the girl).

Standard lady drinks still 80 baht (30 baht for the girl). Bottled Heineken still 80 baht.

   Review from Dick Farang August 2015: An extensive menu

At my recent visit at Butterfly Bar off Soi Siam Country Club there were about ten girls and no other customers.

All of them, slim or fat, cute or ugly, young or old expect the same ST fee: 1,000 baht.

Some younger ones (and not necessarily the nicest spinners) seem to ignore older punters. Perhaps they are waiting for a Prince Charming, a Knight in a Shining Armour on a White Horse, but those are few and far between at the Dark Side and probably in most of Pattaya.

Some of the more mature (30+) girls have kept a good figure, complain they have not been shagged for two weeks (true or not) and compete by offering the most complete service you might wish at the same tariff: rimming, bareback, anal, A2M, MFF threesome and MFM threesome. For the last service (aka DP or sandwich) you will need a wingman.

Barfine (room included) still 220 baht.

Standard lady drinks are still 80 baht, special lady drinks such as Spy (pronounce: es-pie) are 100 baht. Bottled Heineken still 80 baht.

  Comments from Dick Farang May 2015: 80 baht Lady Drink

Opening hours of Butterfly Bar off Soi Siam Country Club are 12 a.m. (noon) to 9 p.m. If you are horny you better arrive before 8 p.m.

At my latest visit there were a dozen girls in all shapes and sizes, aged between twenty and forty years.

Prices are still the same; the girls get 30 baht for each 80-baht lady drink.

  Review from Dick Farang April 2015: The best bargain on the Dark Side

Butterfly Bar off Soi Siam Country Club is still surviving, but very quiet.

When I arrived there were two other customers. There were a couple of oldies and a blonde 22-year-old spinner, Tanya. She had a minimal bosom, a slim body and a very good shape, although she had borne two babies. She was a good girl who did not smoke cigarettes or drink alcohol. She did not have tattoos, but she did have a navel piercing. As she had visited her family and not boom-boom for several days, she was very horny.

She told me she had worked at Superbaby/Supergirl on Soi Diamond for two days, but, although she met the physical requirements to work there, she hated the pressure to have to go with any customer. Even if Thai bargirls are technically prostitutes, the majority of them are self-confident and choosy, not wanting to be intimate with somebody they do not like.

Apart from junkies et al., also not many girls will want to work for a service were they are picked from a website or from a photo album. I can understand this very well as I myself have never used a home delivery service such as The Devil's Den on Soi LK Metro and I doubt very strongly if I ever will.

Tanya's tariff was the usual 1,000 baht ST.

The background music at Butterfly Bar was unobtrusive.

Barfine is still 220 baht, room included, probably the best bargain on the Dark Side.

Bottled Heineken still 80 baht and also lady drinks still 80 baht.

  Review from Dick Farang August 2014: Intimate corners

Despite some rumours on internet forums Butterfly Bar at the Dark Side is still open, albeit very quiet.

Butterfly Bar is located in a narrow alley marked by a butterfly sign on the right-hand side of Soi Siam Country Club when coming from Sukhumvit Road, about 200 metres beyond the crossing at Soi 22 with the traffic lights with the double-digit counter.

In the alley there is a large car park on the left-hand side, shortly before the bar on the right-hand side.

It is very dark inside and it takes a while for your eyes to adjust.

The bar has some intimate corners.

There were some eight girls, some of them end thirty or older and some younger ones carrying overweight.

I was the only customer.

One of the older ones confessed she smokes a couple of times a month, but complained she gets shagged less than once a month.

Barfine (ST room included) 220 baht (like the voltage, no mistake).

The ST rooms are in a building opposite the bar.

Bottled Heineken 80 baht, lady drink 80 baht.

  Notes May 2013: Fading

There seem few admirers in a recent forum discussion. Lack of attractive ladies. Still an occasional nice lady though.

  Review from Pattaya-Live, Sept 2008: Best on the Dark Side

At current state of affairs, the best bar on the Dark Side(Girly wise), by some distance too. Long and very dark bar (all indoors i.e. aircon). No special effects, as the place is predominantly short time haven.

24 girls currently on the books with some real cuties.

Decent enough music and great fun to be had.

  Review from Dick Farang: Casually Shy

Casual is on the left-hand side of Soi Khao Noi when coming from Sukhumvit Road.

It is opposite Boutique Resort (whatever that may be) and about 200 metres before The Black Sheep.

It is a modest bar-restaurant serving pub grub with a small food shop, not really a girlie bar.

Although the staff are very friendly, they are also very shy and probably not barfineable.

Bottled Heineken 60 baht.

 The Empire Lounge and Restaurant

  Review from Dick Farang, August 2017: Fancyless

Towards the end of Soi Khao Noi, past Angels Place and more or less opposite Soi 17, The Empire Lounge and Restaurant has opened.

This is a very difficult place to park a car. Inside it is spacious and all but a restaurant.

There is a big room with sofas that can be curtained off and appears to serve as a blow job area.

The owner/manager/mamasan is an older Thai woman who used to work at the nearby Pacha Bar.

There were five or six fat and/or old girls, several of them aai maak maak and virtually without any English. The best looking girl was the 33-year-old cashier, who said she had been a lady at Pacha Bar, but was no lady any longer.

I was told the ST bar fine was 300 baht and an air-conditioned room somewhere at the rear was included.

None of the available girls however could take my fancy.

I was also told that, unlike at Pacha Bar, the girls were not allowed to smoke cigarettes inside.

Bottled Heineken 80 baht.

 Fabrice Bar

Bar associated with Fabrice Hotel and Restaurant

  Review from Dick Farang, February 2017: Middle of nowhere

Fabrice Bar on the corner of Soi Banlang and Soi Banlang Soi 8 is still as dark as ever and the bar stools are still as hard.

This bar seems to increasingly specialise in oldies, who are more interested in playing pool than in "the real thing".

The ST rooms (in fact rather nice en suite "standard" hotel rooms) are 320 baht now, "no barfine".

On my latest visit (still in "high" season) I had the impression they even did have some real hotel guests, as I saw an elderly farang woman in the swimming pool.

I wonder however who, in their right mind, would want to spend their holidays in that dusty middle of nowhere.

Bottled Heineken still 80 baht.

  Review from Dick Farang, April 2015: No smoking

Nothing has improved since my previous visits to Fabrice Bar on the corner of Soi Banlang (aka Soi Siam Country Club Soi 18 and Soi Phon Prapha Nimit Soi 18) and Soi Banlang Soi 8.

The swimming pool was deserted and inside the lounge were a huge, dark cashier and three girls, two fat ones and one half-decent one.

The latter one was 28 years old, did smoke cigarettes, but did not want to smoke big cigar, was not overly enthusiastic and expected 1,500 baht for ST boom-boom.

Fabrice Bar also has a pizzeria to the right of the building. If you want you can order some grub from there and consume it in the darkness of the lounge. On Tuesdays they seem to have a buffet at 100 baht.

ST room (no barfine) 250 baht.

Bottled Heineken 80 baht.

  Review from Dick Farang, April 2014: A Strange Mood

Not far from Aqua Deymie is French owned hotel and bar, Fabrice.

At this bar I always feel in a strange mood. Most girls are in their thirties and the younger ones completely ignore older punters. The bar is rather spacious and the girls are walking in and out all the time leaving an empty feel.

Fabrice is located on Soi Banlang (aka Soi Siam Country Club Soi 18 and Soi Phon Prapha Nimit Soi 18.

  Review from Dick Farang, December 2015: Yabba Dabba Don't

On Soi Khao Noi, in the double shophouse where Route 69 used to be, Flintstone Bar has opened.

Apart from a new sign and some Flintstones pictures nothing seems to have changed. The unused narrow stage with chrome poles, which separates the first part from the second, is still there.

I saw four working girls: a 20-year-old spinner who was too shy for any activity, another young one who was skinny in an unhealthy way, a slightly older one with a good shape whom I would have liked to vet, but who had suddenly disappeared, and a huge creature saying he/she/it wanted to take it up the arse.

The empty spaces in the middle did not contribute to an intimate feel. The manager roaming the place all the time did not help either. Unsurprisingly I was the only customer.

One more who is going to bite the dust. At least no money was wasted on a refurbishment.

Bottled Heineken 70 baht, 50 baht during happy hour.

  Review from Dick Farang, March 2017: Secret Moons

Full Moon Bar is a single-unit shophouse on the left-hand side of upper Soi Khao Talo, between The Bird Cage and The Secret (previously Happy Moon's Bar).

It used to be an open-fronted bar, but last year it was closed with see-through windows.

It shares a (muddy) car park behind the buildings with its neighbours.

Full Moon Bar shares ownership with neighbour The Secret (previously Happy Moon's Bar) and with Full Moon Bar II on lower Soi Khao Talo.

Full Moon Bar II

Soi Khao Talo

 Full Moon Bar II

  Review from Dick Farang, December 2016: Full Moon Rising

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.

  Comment from Dick Farang, April 2014: Not so friendly

Girls of Golden Gate on Soi Khao Noi Soi 9 are very unfriendly and do not go with customers; there are no rooms either.

  Review from jj, April 2013: Not enough maidens and too many extra balls

If one were playing Cricket, this bar is a major loser.

Wicket 1: half the staff are katoeys.

goldflower staffOn the left-hand side of Soi Khao Noi, past Paradise and Route 69, but still before Soi 9, at the previous location of Go Gress, Goldflower Bar has opened.

Nothing seems to have changed on the ground floor and on the first floor.

There were about ten girls, most of them in their mid-twenties, farm-fresh and on the chubby side.

There were also two effeminate Thai boys, not sure what they were doing there.

Barfine 300 baht ST and 500 baht LT, the girls expecting 1,000 and 2,000 baht respectively.

The ST room on the first floor (included in the barfine) is spacious and bright with a large mirror on the wall. The bathroom is on the same floor. The air conditioning in the ST room was kaputt .

  Review from Dick Farang, May 2015: Shapes and sizes

Joy Joy Bar is located on the left-hand side of Soi Siam Country Club when coming from Sukhumvit Road, several hundreds of metres before the crossing at Soi 22 with the traffic lights with the double-digit counter.

The building stands at an angle; it is not really parallel to the road.

The club is rather spacious, but is only a shadow of its former self.

At my latest visit there were seven customers, a skinny cashier, a medium-sized girl with an ugly face who was busy with a punter, a very fat one, an extremely fat one and two dirty white dogs.

Barfine (room included) 300 baht ST, the girls (any shape) expecting 1,000 baht ST.

As far as I remember the rooms upstairs are rather spacious, but not en-suite.

On Soi Khao Talo between Soi 10 and Soi 10/1 at the previous location of Pat's Bar a bar has opened under new ownership: K&K's BAR.

They have hired some younger girls now. One of them is 25-year-old Ann from Nong Khai who is rather chubby, but still in good shape and good company.

Barfine is still 300 baht for ST, room included, the girls expecting 1,000 baht.

At the moment the first floor is in a deplorable state; even the light switches are missing. I was told air conditioning will be installed next week and everything repaired.

Bottled Heineken 85 baht, lady drinks (such as Spy) 100 baht.

Pop, the shy non-barfineable virgin, was still there, this time being beautiful in a black dress until halfway her calves.

A 21 years old rather chunky mother of two, was wearing an also decent blue dress under which it was difficult to guess the quality of the goods.

She expected 3,000 baht ST and she would not budge to less than 1,500 baht.

Barfine was 300 baht and the room was 200 baht extra.

There was also one obligatory ladyboy (apparently a must at the Dark Side).

Bottled Heineken however was still 50 baht (happy hour ?).

  Review from Dick Farang, May 2014: Rapid review

Kayak Bar is a new bar on Soi Pattanakan = Soi Nern Plab Wahn Soi 28 = Soi Nongkraborg Soi 9.

It is between the Black Hole and Wat Kao Sao Thong Thong (at the corner at the end of Soi Khao Talo), but at the other side of the road.

It is owned by a Welshman, David.

Bottled Heineken was a modest 50 baht.

Apart from the usual furniture there was a 20 year old girl, Pop, who started one week before and was very shy, not into bedroom sports and wearing (tight) trousers.

  Review from Dick Farang, October 2014: Beware

kik bar ladyboysI will never understand the rationale behind creating confusion by hiring girls and transvestites at the same bar (such as their neighbours KiK and USABAR also do) or gogo (such as Miami A-GoGo on Soi Post Office and We Are No 1 A-GoGo in Jomtien).

  Note from Dick Farang, April 2014: Belgian beer

Kik Bar seems to be owned by a Belgian, Eric, who is also connected with Dao Cafe.

  Review from jj, April 2013: Lounge bar

The review below was apparently written 2-3 owners and 3-4 managers ago.

Today KIK is a shadow of its coyote days.

It's now a typical Darkside bar where the ladies lounge around until the customers come then continue to lounge around unless pressured to get off the couch.

Compared to many Darkside bars it is fairly large and well appointed with a number of comfortable and discrete couches; largely unused.

You know things are NOT going well when the lady doesn't even drink her LD; just lets the ice melt.

Seems that if you are not a chum of the Brit manager, you ain't.......

When the next owner takes over, he needs somehow to tap the potential that is not there now.

  News April 2012: Re-opened

The bar has re-opened with an emphasis on coyote dancing. There is a Wednesday party night when coyotes from Papagayo perform. BF 300 for ST incl. room, LT 500, 300 later in the evening. Lady drinks 100 Baht. Thai spirits 60 Baht.

  Note May 2011: Prices

69 Baht for a small bottled Chang. Girl quoted an unnegotiable 1500 Baht short time (+ 300 Baht for room).

  Review from Jack, June 2010: Good fun

A new bar has just opened over on the Darkside called KiK. It has been open for about a week now and is having a grand opening party on 19th June.

The new bar is owned by the same group as Dao Bar/Cafe and Papagayo.

On the couple of times that I have been there this week there were about 15 girls most of which were easy on the eye. The bar has been fitted out quite nicely and is comfortable and has good Air Con.

The drink prices are a little higher than most bars on the DarkSide, Soft Drinks 60bt, Bottled Beer 90bt Sprit with mixer 90bt and Lady Drinks 100bt. Short Time 300bt, Long Time 500bt

I have not seen the ST Rooms but the owner said they are finished to a high standard.

I have spent a couple of enjoyable evenings there with good fun being had.

   Review from Dick Farang, December 2015: Fat on pizza

La Guinguette on Soi Siam Country Club Soi 27 is only a pale shade of its former self.

The very fat Thai female owner and the fat girls completely ignored me, their only customer.

The fans were extremely dirty; I doubt if they are ever cleaned. The swimming pool was fenced off, but I could see a naked farang sunbathing next to it.

You can order food there, i.e. pizzas, etc. (warmed up items from the freezer I guess).

Bottled Heineken 80 baht.

  Review from Dick Farang, May 2015: Re-opened

La Guinguette on the corner of Soi Siam Country Club Soi 27 and sub-soi 12 has been reopened, once again by an old, fat, single Thai lady.

There were four girls: two oldies, a 21-year-old fatty and a 25-year-old newbie, Cherry.

Cherry had started there two days ago and probably still possessed her cherry. She was extremely shy, did not go with customers and even jumped away when you only pointed at her.

I am curious how long this incarnation of La Guinguette will last.

Bottled Heineken 80 baht.

  Review from Dick Farang, October 2014: A Long Gone Era

As it was about two years ago I had visited La Guinguette (mind the spelling) I decided to pay them a visit.

La Guinguette is located on Soi 27 off Soi Siam Country Club, on the corner of sub-soi 12.

It is easy to find as there is a big sign on the corner of Soi Siam Country Club and Soi 27.

When I arrived there was not a single car or motorbike outside and also the car park at the other side of Soi 27 was empty.

I entered through the open front door, walked through the deserted garden with umbrellas and near the smallish swimming pool I found three fully clothed fatties, one of them the Thai owner, and a boring white dog.

It is no longer French owned.

In a long bygone era they had ST rooms at 300 baht (barfine included).

Bottled Heineken 80 baht.

  From Pattaya Secrets, June 2010: Lucky

There were only 4 girls working, but I was lucky that the one who greeted me at the entrance was nice enough for some company and some entertainment. Tiger 65 Baht and LDs 100 Baht. ST rooms are 300 with fan or 350 with AC, ST fee was up to you (read 500 Baht).

  From Pattaya Secrets, Jan 2007: Afternoon Best

About 3 of the 10 girls were pretty, and very hands-on playful. I felt all the girls were all tired and made a note to go back around 2.00PM when the girls are fresh!

  From Pattaya Secrets, June 2006: Maybe Next Time

Good location, out of the way. Great potential.

I went there last night and not impressed at all. The quality of girls poor. The mamason's son was wondering in and out all the time. So no fun to had with the girls. I was asked if I wanted to be entertained in the swimming pool but I declined with the quality of the girls.

I will try and get there earlier next time and see if there is any improvement.

  From Pattaya Secrets, May 2006: What a Gem

What a gem!. French owned and nestled in a big house with a private swimming pool (skinny dipping is allowed at all times...), a bar and a number of sitting areas/arrangements dotted around the place....bar stools, leather sofas, thai style Gazeebo and deck chairs around the pool....we got there quite late and a few of the girls were off entertaining but there were still 7-8 babes, some really presentable....

A perfect place for a private binge or a quiet evening of cheap booze....barfines are 200 Baht and girlies are on "dark side" level of pay ie up to you...

  Review from Dick Farang, September 2014: Bruin cafe

Lucky Time Bar is a spacious bruin café (cosy traditional Dutch style pub with snacks) owned by Alex from Maastricht (Netherlands) and his Thai wife Nid from Buriram, who has lived in the Netherlands for many years and has acquired the Dutch nationality.

It is on the right-hand side of Soi Nern Plab Wahn when coming from Sukhumvit Road, about 200 metres past the petrol station.

Although it is Dutch owned most customers appear to be British.

It is not really a place to pick up a barfine.

They have rooms at 500 baht per night.

Bottled Heineken 70 baht.

  Review from Thai Visa, March 2008: Darts and Pool Teams

The bar has Darts and Pool teams, both of which participate in the Pattaya leagues. If you are after a quiet game of pool/darts etc. and want a relaxed (no bar girl scene) friendly atmosphere in which to have a few beers (its safe to take the missus as well) then it is hard to beat.

  Review from Pattaya-Live, Jan 2008: Semi Conscious

Sure is a nice bar, friendly staff, good pool table and 50 Baht Tiger.

Cashier is a looker and loads of fun. Breakfast very good value.

Just a shame you go out out for breakfast and go home several hours later semi conscious

  Review from Alex, Aug 2007: Lucky Find

The Lucky Time Bar is a haven away from the madness of the major soi's. Owned by a Dutchman named Alex and his wife, they welcomed us and treated us as friends and not just customers they helped make me and my friends holiday

This is a family orientated bar frequented by Expats from all over the world, It is well run and the perfect place to have a relaxed drink with family or friends. The Bar is well airconditioned and has Pool/Darts and Table Football to play, the friendly girls are more than happy to thrash you at the game of your choice.

The food served is fantastic and very well priced as is the beer 60 baht for an ice cold Singha (miss it already)

The girls are a really friendly bunch and there is no nicer feeling than to come down in the morning and be greeted by your name

The Apartments are spacious and very well presented and you have both aircon and a fan all are ensuite with daily cleaning service and towel exchange and most importantly inexpensive

A previous review stated there were no short time rooms this is really not that sort of bar. You are more than welcome to take ladies back to the bar for a drink or to your room

I will definitely be stopping here again next year.

M Pub and Restaurant is located on the right-hand side of Soi Khao Talo when coming from Sukhumvit Road, about fifty metres before Soi 10.

It is owned by an old ailing Norwegian, Papa, and his Thai wife.

I always wonder why some bars that are by no means restaurants have the word Restaurant in their names; perhaps it is a licence or tax kind of thing.

I used to avoid this place because there were only old hags, but now they have some friendly, albeit chubby to very chubby, threeholers in the 20-25 age bracket.

Ying Bar on Soi Lablae (aka Soi Nern Plab Wahn 31, etc.) has become Mac's Bar.

It is still German owned; Mac is the name of the current owner's wife.

As to the interior not much (if anything) has changed and it is still as worn as before, but when it is empty your nose is rubbed in it much more.

They appear to offer some snacks now.

I was the only customer and their only girl inside was a 42-year-old fatty.

This venture looks like one more recipe for disaster.

Barfine (room included) is 300 baht.

Bottled Heineken is still a steep 90 baht (60 baht during happy hour from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m.).

Mango Pub

Soi Khao Noi

 Mango Pub

Short time bar. Previously named Banana Bar but the name was disallowed. Girls once noted for missing items of underwear and an invite to check for yourselves.

  Review from Dick Farang, June 2014: Indoor playground

At Mango bar on Soi Khao Noi you have to ring the doorbell now and there is a good reason for it.

There were a number of more or less naked not so young fatties cavorting around.

There was also one good looking slim girl with a beautiful dress.

She appeared to be bottomless under her dress, a threeholer, a real sweetheart and in an excellent shape for her 39 years.

Similar to Paradise bar they also have a special counter behind which head can be given.

There is an indoor playground downstairs behind the bar and there is an en suite room upstairs.

Barfines: BJ counter 200 baht, ST downstairs 300 baht, ST upstairs 400 baht, LT takeaway 500 baht.

Bottled Heineken 90 baht.

  News from jj, August 2013: Time and Tonnage

I returned to Mango Bar (Soi Khao Noi) after a prolonged absence.

Former rumors about a change in ownership proved false. However, there has been a complete turnover of staff right down to and including the cashier.

Only two words are needed to describe the new group: TIME & TONNAGE!

I have NEVER seen an older or fatter group of ladies concentrated in one place since my last visit to an old-aged home! This is currently a bar in SEVERE decline and one to be avoided at all costs!

  Review from jj, March 2013: Mangled Mango

Mango Bar has undergone some tumultuous times.

Back a few months, Mango had a stable crew of hands-on ladies. Over the past 6 mos or so, there has been a steady turn-over. A large number of ladies have come and gone (quickly).

I have no inside information, but I tend to think that no one can work with the current Belgian owner/manager. I’ve seen him berate a lady in the bar in from of customers. Since he speaks neither English nor Thai with any proficiency, this was almost a comical scene.

Whereas subsequent visits in the past would be rewarded with ladies one knew; now it is a roll of the dice if she will be there on a repeat visit. In recent days, two of the stalwarts have defected to a competing Khao Noi bar.  

  Review from jj, February 2012: Over-ripe?

Returned to Mango for the first time in a while at about 3pm. Same owner, major staff turn-over. Former costuming (or lack thereof) no longer in vogue. It seems like another bar in decline.

Ladies said the bar does OK at night but days are quiet. As per most owners, when customers decline, prices go up; not outrageous, but reaching too far for a Darkside bar. Look for it on the market soon.

  Review from jj, September 2011: A Fun Bar

Mango Bar lives up to the comment above. The ladies tend to lack certain items of clothing and are more than willing to lose even more.

The arrangement of the bar with a series of internal walls allows any interaction with the ladies to be discrete. Take 2-3 out the back door to play pool at your peril; they win most of the time, but even losing can be fun when clothing is constantly being adjusted.

A fun bar with reasonable prices and very friendly ladies; definitely hands-on.

  From Pattaya Secrets, March 2007: Well Managed

The girls that work there hardly ever get bar fined, yet there are some good cuties there. It is a well managed operation, has good food, plays good music and there are absolutely no hassles for lady drinks.

Well worth a look, if you're out this way. No short time rooms though, the first time visitor might not even realise the girls are available

Mermaid Bar Beer

Soi Khao Noi

 Mermaid Bar Beer

Beer bar opened in 2014.

  News from jj, September 2015: Closed

Mermaid Bar has now become Halfway Inn.

  Comment from Dick Farang August 2015: Still unsatisfying

Mermaid Bar Beer on Soi Khao Noi has always been struggling, but I very strongly doubt if they are going to be more successful in the Mabprachan area, which is more dead than alive.

At my latest visit which left me as unsatisfied as ever the Thai wife of the current Scottish owner denied they were going to close on Soi Khao Noi.

  News from jj August 2015: Changes

With hardly a missed beat, Soi Khao Noi's MERMAID bar has changed hands and remains open under the new management.

  Review from Dick Farang April 2015: Unsatisfying

Last year Mermaid Bar Beer opened in a double shophouse on Soi Khao Noi, left of Mango Pub. I think it is French or Walloon owned.

In the front section there is still a piece of wall that separates most of the two units. Just behind the sliding windows on both sides is a pool table. In the rather dark right-hand section are some sofas that seem to function as a smoking corner. In the brighter left-hand section are a bar with bar stools, some high tables also with bar stools and mirrors on the back wall.

A 23-year-old average girl, Da, followed me inside, had been working there for two weeks, spoke very little English, did not sound overly enthusiastic about smoking and wanted 2,000 baht ST; she did not want to budge to less than 1,500 baht ST. Another 23-year-old girl who had started the same day looked sweet enough, but did not speak a single word of English. A 39-year-old threeholer was interested, but she was on duty as a cashier that day and could not go upstairs.

Mermaid Bar Beer is one of the places on the Dark Side where I never have got satisfaction up to now, whereas at some other places, such as Butterfly Bar and White Oyster Bar, it has always been bingo.

Barfine still 300 baht ST (room included).

Bottled Heineken 90 baht from 75 baht last year.

  Review from Dick Farang October 2014: Friendly enough

On Soi Khao Noi, left of Mango Pub (what a decent name for a Belgian owned girlie bar !), Mermaid Bar Beer has opened in a double shophouse.

The interior is well lit with a bar and stools, a pool table and some mirrors, nothing special.

The best looking girl was the 18-year-old cashier, but she does not seem to be available.

A 22-year-old girl with massive natural boobs and even more massive buttocks told me she had men (short for menstruation), but that she wanted me to come back next week.

Another girl started licking my ear.

The girls were not the most beautiful, but they were friendly enough and not too shy.

Barfines 300 baht ST (room included) and 500 baht LT.

Bottled Heineken 75 baht.

  News from Dick Farang, November 2014: Dark

As of 22nd November, the bar is now dark.

  Review from Dick Farang, September 2014: New, not so new, and old

On the right-hand side of Soi Khao Noi Soi 9, New Bar opened about half a year ago and is thus not really new anymore.

It appears to be Dutch owned.

Last time I went there three Dutchmen and the same number of chicks where sitting at the smallish bar. So I had to sit along the other wall.

To my surprise they were playing old-fashioned smartlappen (Dutch-language sentimental songs such as YouTube smartlappen), but as soon as the Dutch people left they changed to the usual YouTube fare.

The girls were in the 25-48 years age bracket and most of them at the higher side of that scale.

Bottled Heineken 70 baht.

 New Dao Bar/New Dao Cafe

Dar Bar/Dao Cafe became the New Dao Bar/Cafe in July 2017

  Review from Dick Farang, July 2017: Star makeover

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.

The 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.

They 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.

The New 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.

New Dao Bar opens from 1 p.m. till midnight.

Bottled Heineken 85 baht, lady drinks 119 baht.

  Review from Dick Farang, September 2014: Thai style karaoke

Nid Bar is on the left-hand side of Soi Nern Plab Wahn when coming from Sukhumvit Road, more or less opposite Happy Time Bar, not to be confused with Lucky Time Bar.

It is a Thai style karaoke that also welcomes farangs.

They only have big beer bottles and offer ice cubes with the beer.

When I was hardly seated a customer showed me a white substance he tried to sell.

I decided to leave without consuming.

In my opinion a place to avoid.

  Review from Dick Farang, April 2015: Old dogs

On lower Soi Khao Noi, at the previous location of Welcome Inn and Boom Boom Karaoke, Old Hounds Lounge has opened.

The bar is rather dark now and appears to have been completely refurbished with dark green walls and ceiling, matching tiles, brand new black barstools and benches, but looks all but posh.

There were a cashier with a boob job and an old, short, fat bargirl who was even too ugly to be a mamasan.

There was one other farang, busy on a PC selecting songs, perhaps the owner.

On Soi Khao Talo Soi 9, about three kilometres from Sukhumvit Road, Pacha has opened at the location that was Blue Cat Bar before, next to KiK Bar.

For the location of bars on the Dark Side this map, albeit not always 100% correct and up to date, can help.

Pacha appears to be French owned.

Not much, if anything, has changed inside.

Not many girls and no top models at all, but thank goodness no ladyboys this time.

An old girl was very horny and wanted to go upstairs for a mere 500 baht.

On Soi Khao Noi I revisited Paradise bar.

There were 9 or 10 girls in their thirties, most of them overweight, but polite enough.

At the right side they have a counter behind which punters can get a blowjob at 200 + 500 baht.

I was told a full service in a ST room upstairs is 300 + 1,000 baht and a LT takeaway barfine 400 baht.

Bottled Heineken 70 baht.

  News June 2013: Police

The bar seems to have taken a hit from the licensing police.

  News from jj January 2013: A Change of Management

The old Paradise Bar closed on 5th of December 2012. But it is now under new management and will re-open with a party on 2nd January 2013 at 2pm. Many new ladies are promised.

Post-opening update:

The new and improved PARADISE is up to 7 ladies; looking promising.

  From Pattaya-Addicts June 2010: Fun in the Bar

5 or 6 girls available for fun in the bar but not quite top notch. Reasonably priced drinks

  From Pattaya Today: Night March, Nov 2008: Busy

Its entrance is unpre-possessing but once inside punters must surely be reminded of a standard Soi 6-like den.

It has added a pool table, but games are free for customers. While there were only seven or eight ladies working, they were a typically friendly lot of knob fondlers. Of the four places I visited, Paradise was easily the busiest in terms of bums on seats.

Soft drinks are just 30 baht and lady drinks good value at only 80 baht. Bottled amber goes off at a mere 50 baht during a 6:00 to 7:00PM happy hour.

 Pat's Bar

New name for August 2012. Previously Louise Bar. Became K&k's Bar by May 2016.

  Review from Dick Farang, January 2015: Less Naughty

Pat's Bar on Soi Khao Talo between Soi 10 and Soi 10/1 has become a bit less naughty: the door is mostly open now and the girls are often sitting on the terrace.

One of the girls is Yo, a shaved 42-year old spinner with the body of a 20-year old, but whose face cannot hide her age.

Barfine is 300 baht ST room included and 400 baht LT; the girls expect 1,000 baht ST and 2,000 baht LT.

The girls appear to get 30 baht from a lady drink, which is 50 + 30 = 80 baht for a Sangsom soda.

The upstairs rooms are very primitive with a mattress on the floor, but the sheets are changed after each go.

As they apparently have no water tank with an electric pump, Thai-style plastic bowls have to be used for some early Songkran fun. Every normal farang house, not only on the Dark Side, but anywhere in Pattaya, has such a tank.

However you cannot really blame Pat's Bar for not having it as even Showgirls Entertainment Centre on Soi LK Metro forgot it in their initial investment of 25 million baht.

Bottled Heineken 50 baht during happy hour.

  Review from Dick Farang, July 2014: Eager to Please

Pat's Bar is on the right hand side of Soi Khao Talo when coming from Sukhumvit Road, near Soi 10/1, opposite the 7ELEVEN that is next to the main entrance of Eakmongkon Project 4.

It is an air-conditioned closed doors bar where much is possible: toplessness and public blowjobs. Girls appear to be unshaved.

There is a rather big terrace in front of it, but not many girls are sitting outside.

They appear to have two ST rooms. Bar fine is 300 baht, room included.

As opposed to many bars in the lower Soi Khao Talo area, most girls here seem to be eager to please and to go the last mile so to say and some are even cute.

Bottled Heineken 65 baht, lady drinks 80 baht.

Patty Bar Beer

Soi Khao Noi

Patty Bar Beer

Beer bar opened in March 2016. Closed by the end of the year

  Review from Dick Farang, March 2016: Rhymes with...

On Soi Khao Noi, about 100 metres before Goldflower Bar when coming from Sukhumvit Road, a brand new bar has opened: Patty Bar Beer.

At my visit the bar stools were still wrapped in cling film.

The cashier and the mamasan looked much better than the two 'girls'.

One of them was a 45-year-old fatty from Chang Mai who had worked a very short stint as a 42-year-old (growing old very fast) sumo at Saxo (now Le Rouge) and the other one was a short fatty who was as least as old.

The tall and slim mamasan said she was going to pick up a new girl, but I could not be arsed to wait.

I wonder if she is going to find much talent at 4,000-5,000 baht a month.

Bottled Heineken 85 baht.

Peet Bar

Soi Siam Country Club

 Peet Bar

  Review from Dick Farang, December 2014: Primitive

Peet Bar is the last but one bar along the eastern bank of Mabprachan Lake, off Soi Siam Country Club. It is several hundred metres past Ice Star and several hundred metres before The Barking Frog.

If there were a championship for the most primitive bar at the Dark Side they would win hands down, which is a notable achievement.

It is owned by a Thai couple and is named for their 27-year old daughter Peet. Apart from the owners, their daughter, their grandson and their dogs there were also a ladyboy and two older girls.

Strangely enough they did have some customers.

I could not be bothered to enquire about barfines.

Half a century after Tom Jones's song What's New Pussycat? Pussy Cat Bar Beer on Soi Nern Plab Wahn is in complete decline.

At my latest visit the front door and the curtains were wide open.

I saw two old fatties and also two Thai boys playing pool.

In the toilet the washbasin was torn down.

  Review from Pattaya-Addicts, July 2010: Best on the Dark Side

Without a doubt the best bar on the Dark Side is Pussy Cat Club. The bar itself is very tastefully done out in white leather chairs & booths, as well as some tables & chairs. The surroundings are fabulous, the bar staff very good and the ladies are excellent.

If you buy a lady drink, the bill shows the normal drink price + 30 baht for the lady.

Customers flock to this bar because of all the good features mentioned.

  Review from Pattaya-Live, Sept 2008: Bit out of the way

Owned by a happy going Italian and his luvly wife, who are not shy throwing drinks at you.

Very large and spacious bar. Pool table and a largish sitting area. 6-8 girls, some quite tasty and 3-4 lady boys, who are performing dances on the upper balcony. Decent music and mostly busy late.

  Review from Pattaya Talk, Nov 2007: A Bunch of Time

This is a newer looking bar with some very nice ladies. I spent a bunch of time here and enjoyed the company. Reasonable prices and cold beer. If you can handle the ladyboys here (and they stayed away) this is a nice place to spend some time.

  Review from Pattaya Secrets, Sep 2007:

Italian owned bar is a double shophouse. A pool table is available, seating and decoration is simple but tasteful.

About 6 girls are currently working, some of them eyecandy. Also 2 not so beautiful katoeys working.

Gin Tonic was 90 Baht, too much for the Dark Side. No short time rooms available.

  News from Dick Farang, August 2015: Open for business

As of August 2015, Red Lion Pub & Restaurant on Soi Khao Noi appears to be open for business.

  Review from Pattaya Today, April 2007:

Seating is comfortable and cosy in the forefront with a dining room to the left and a huge bar at the rear where drinkers can sit and watch the big-screen TV.

The Red Lion has a leisurely opening at 11.00 am when the full range of the pub’s breakfasts and morning snack foods can be enjoyed. The big breakfast comes with unlimited tea or coffee and doubles up on everything, i.e sausages, bacon, eggs, toast, masses of baked beans, all the works. It costs B.150 for a Fred Flintstone start to the day with a smaller one for Wilma at B.110. 

Lots of traditional English options on the menu including: sausages & mash, fish ‘n chips, scampi, and home-made fish cakes, chicken tikka masala. There’s a special kid’s menu evoking childhood memories with offerings of fish fingers, chicken nuggets or sausages with chips and beans to please the juniors. The Thai menu is huge presenting 86 dishes.

  Review from jj, May 2006: Restaurant & Pub

Not long after opening, I asked the owner (Adrian) if it was a bar that served food or a restaurant that served alcohol.

He said he had aimed for the former but seemed to have achieved the latter.

Food was quite good for a while then a change of cooks and an increase in prices ran him off my list of restaurants, ie portions and taste not up to the price.

  Review from Pattaya Secrets, May 2006: No Girlies

About 200 yards after Pattaya Hill Village, on left hand side. large English type bar. inside and outside dinner areas. Pool table. No girlies. popular with Brits who live in the Moobans around it. Food quite expensive for the location.

On Soi Khao Noi Rendezvous has opened at the previous location of Halfway Inn and Mermaid Bar Beer.

You have to ring the door bell now, but they open the sliding doors even before you can find the button.

At first sight the interior has remained unchanged, but there were more girls and punters than I have ever seen at the previous incarnations.That being said there was not a single girl who did catch my fancy.

Bottled Heineken 85 baht, during happy hour (until 6 p.m.) all beers 55 baht.

They also sell English cider at 130 baht per half litre. To be honest I would even prefer Belgian cider, which is a completely different product sold in champagne-style bottles.

On Soi Khao Talo Rod's Bar (previously Anna/Ann's Angel Bar has gone dark some weeks ago with a sign ROOM FOR RENT on the door.

  Review from Dick Farang, July 2015: Absentee landlord

At the previous location of Anna's Angels Bar on Soi Khao Talo is Rod's Bar now.

Apart from the signage not much has changed.

It is owned by a Brit, Rod, who remains in the UK and is run by his (former) slim, 45-year-old girlfriend.

The other two females inside were a fat 40-year-old cashier and an even fatter 26-year-old girl (the only available one) with an impressive career on the Dark Side.

I was the only customer until a Dutchman came in.

I wonder how long this incarnation is going to survive.

Bottled Heineken 70 baht.

I was pleasantly surprised. Nicely decorated bar which seems to cater for bikers. A pool table outside, 2 Vespas as decoration inside, a couple of guitars hanging on the wall. There is food available.

Beer around 65, LD 95 Baht. Unfortunately no ST rooms on the premises.

Pizza on Wednesdays and buffet on Sundays, free to regulars.

  Review from Pattaya-Live, Nov 2008: Taking Care

The bar is really nicely done out, not too many girls at the moment but the ones that were there certainly were not ugly and they were willing to take care much the same as in Soi 6.

  Review from Dick Farang, December 2015: Sexi Saxo

A couple of days ago Saxo Bar on Soi Khao Noi reopened, once again under French ownership.

The terrace is now curtained off with evergreen trees in containers.

To get in you have to ring the doorbell.

It was still as dark as before and the interior still looked the same.

I happened to be the only customer and I saw four chubby females in their thirties with pot bellies.

They were clad in short black dresses without underwear and when they were sitting on bar stools their pussies were displayed, not unlike Bar de la Poste on Soi Lengkee. For a lady drink they would reveal their charms and try to get you upstairs.

I am a bit confused as to the name as inside I saw a sign Sexi Saxo Bar.

Open from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m., which is early even for the Dark Side.

Barfine ST 300 baht (room included), with the girls expecting 700 baht (or more) for boom boom.

Bottled Heineken 70 baht, first drink free, lady drinks 110 baht.

  Review from Dick Farang, July 2015: Farm 'fresh'

After Belgian ownership Saxo Bar & Pub on Soi Khao Noi, previously Noi's Beer Bar and Darkness, has reopened under French ownership.

The interior has remained unchanged.

There were five or six farm-fresh girls around the 40-year mark varying from fat to extremely fat.

I talked to a 42-year-old sumo who said she had always sold Thai food, had started there five days ago, did not really like the job and wanted to work in a hotel.

I was told the ladyboy from Jungo Bar and USABAR was still working there, but I did not see him/her/it.

Barfine 300 baht ST (room included) with the girls expecting 1,000 baht.

Bottled Heineken 95 baht, lady drinks 130 baht, a bit steep for the quality on offer.

  Review from Dick Farang, April 2015: No Happy Hour

Saxo Bar on Soi Khao Noi has not improved in the slightest since my previous visits.

It was very dark, even much darker than Darkness Beer Bar, its predecessor, has ever been. I happened to be their only customer.

A cashier and three fatties were hiding behind the counter. Only the ladyboy who used to work at Jungo Bar and at USABAR was roaming the bar.

Not a customer-friendly environment.

Bottled Heineken 85 baht, no happy hour any more.

  Review from Dick Farang, August 2014: Posh and dark

On the Dark Side I revisited the recently opened Saxo Bar on Soi Khao Noi. I am not sure if this can be called a real girlie bar.

The interior is posh and rather dark. The clumsy stools with swivel armchairs on top are not as comfortable as they look at first sight.

I saw two ladyboys and five females, one of them apparently the owner/mamasan and another one the cashier.

Half of them were hiding behind the bar and half of them were sitting outside, although the scarce customers were inside.

I also noticed a promotion Best of Belgium for Stella Artois and some of their other factory products. However, money can buy you real Belgian beers, even in Thailand.

Bottled Heineken 85 baht, during happy hour 49 baht, lady drink 99 baht.

  Review from Dick Farang, April 2014: Refurbished

Saxo Bar & Pub has opened on Soi Khao Noi at the location of the former Darkness and Noi Noi.

The ground floor has been completely refurbished.

The only other customer inside was Niels Colov.

Two older girls and one ladyboy stayed outside all the time, so no tip from me.

Saxo Bar & Pub is owned by the same people as Aqua Deymie.

In the outside section are a bar with bar stools, a pool table and some tables with chairs were the girls were sitting, "eating".

At 6.30 p.m. it was still hot outside. In the inside air-conditioned section are a bar with bar stools, some high tables also with bar stools and some sofas with coffee tables.

I talked with a 22-year-old very solid girl without children who had been working there for a month. She spoke very little English, was very "shy" and did not want to "smoke" or to "boom boom".

One other customer.

  Review by Dick Farang, December 2016: Stars out of reach

cognac balloonOn 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).

  Review by Dick Farang, July 2015: Annie is the new Nok

After three months under her ownership, Nok had to stop operations at Stars Bar on Soi Kao Talo, the rent (20,000 baht for a single-unit empty shell) being way too steep. One month later Stars Bar was reopened by a short fatty, Annie, who says she pays the same excessive rent.

There were two rather chubby, but friendly girls around the 20-year mark.

Barfine 300 baht ST, the girls expecting 1,000 baht ST.

The owner Annie said the ST rooms were not yet ready/cleaned.

Bottled Heineken 70 baht, lady drinks 100 baht.

  Review by Dick Farang, April 2015: New Stars

The previous owner of Stars Bar on Soi Kao Talo has returned to England.

It is now owned by Nok, a 40-year-old single mom from Korat, who has been a farmer and a supervisor in a factory and said she herself also liked boomboom.

She has thrown out the pool table that occupied most of the bar area.

There were two 20-year-old girls, a very fat one who said she wanted to take it up the arse and a shy skinnier one. Nok said she wanted to import more talent from her village in Korat and she even mused on changing the bar's name into Korat Bar. The oldest of her three daughters is 20 years old and works factory, does not want to work bar.

They still have rooms on site.

I jokingly told Nok she should pay me 2,000 baht, so that I could spend 1,000 baht on each of the girls.

Barfine ST 300 baht. I had to convince Nok not to charge 200 baht extra for the room.

Bottled Heineken 70 baht from 65 baht before.

  News from Dick Farang, January 2015: Closed

Stars Bar closed in January but re-opened by February

  Review by Dick Farang, October 2014: New Star

Stars Bar is a single-shophouse bar on the left-hand side of Soi Khao Talo, halfway between the Booze Lounge and Mini Bar and opposite the old market.

The British owner insists on playing music of the customer's choice.

The seating inside around the pool table is rather cramped.

When I arrived there were a fat girl, a new 18-year old girl and a chubby, but funny and available cashier.

The young girl who had started the same day was shy and not into bedroom sports at all. She was completely unshaven and did not look like Pattaya material and I think she will be back on her way to her native Buriram very soon. Later on the fatty told me that girl was still a virgin, never having had sex with her Thai sweetheart.

Shortly before I left I saw a cute girl coming down the stairs with a punter.

Barfines 300 baht ST (room included).

Restaurant

  News from Dick Farang, March 2017: Intermittent

The restaurant Suggestions on Pattanakan Road near Soi 4 seems to open intermittently.

  Review from Dick Farang, December 2015: A Suggestion

On Soi Pattanakan (the extension of Soi Nern Plab Wahn Soi 28; stress on the last syllable), just behind the corner from Jungo Bar, is a Belgian-owned restaurant: Suggestions.

To be honest, I was all but impressed.

The good thing was that I could park in the shade of some trees as there were no other cars on the car park. You have to walk around the building to find the entrance.

The first thing that struck me when I entered were the clumsy violet chairs with high backs.

The only other customers were an elderly, probably British, couple.

The waitresses were not too friendly and the tablecloth not too clean, but I always care the most about what I find on my dish.

The lobster bisque (170 baht) was the worst one I have eaten in my whole life, even compared to those at the tourist traps of Walking Street.

The salmon steak (395 baht) was nouvelle cuisine style: a very big dish with a very small piece of salmon on top of some strange mashed potato mix and some morsels right and left.

(Forty years ago nouvelle cuisine was fashionable, say snob. I thought it had died a silent death, but I must be wrong. I would not be surprised if it were still served in Michelin-star restaurants. I have known people who saved a month or longer to go and dine at a posh restaurant, whereas me I always have preferred to eat decently each day of the month and that three times a day.)

I did not see the owner.

I do not know what kind of ingredients they used at Suggestions, but the next day I still had a dirty taste in my mouth.

They also have a budget weekly special at 295 baht, but I am not going back.

There seems to be a link with restaurant Aroi on Soi Toongklom-Tanman.

(When following the southbound carriageway along the railway the first crossing past Soi Khao Talo is Soi Nongkraborg and the next one is Soi Toongklom-Tanman.)

It is sad that AFAIK there are no decent restaurants left on the Dark Side since the disappearance of Manneken Pis and (the original) Due Café, both on Soi Siam Country Club.

And one final piece of advice: never ever trust TripAdvisor reviews.

  Review from Dick Farang, August 2014: Flemish Lion

On the left-hand side of Soi Nern Plab Wahn when coming from Sukhumvit Road, about a hundred metres before Pussy Cat, Supatta Café Bar & Guesthouse has opened.

It is owned by Paul from Dendermonde (Belgium) and his Thai wife Supatta (nickname Daeng).

It is rather spacious with a blue pool table and red stools and will also have rooms for rent. On the wall is a big Flemish Lion flag.

At the moment Daeng and her sister are serving and it is not clear if it will evolve into a girlie bar.

Note that Soi Nern Plab Wahn is also known as Sukhumvit Pattaya Soi 53 and Soi Map Yai Lia. Nern Plab Wahn is also spelt in many different ways in English, such as Noneplubwan.

White Horse is a low-rise restaurant on the left hand side of the car park of Eastern Grand Palace Hotel, which is on the crossing of Soi Khao Talo and the railway.

It opens in the late afternoon and is very spacious, but I was their only customer.

I surmise the restaurant is primarily intended for the busloads of (Chinese) tourists who stay at the Eastern Grand Palace Hotel.

They appear to have special prices for three bottled beers if you order them at once.

I doubt if many farangs will go there for more than one beer, if any.

Short time bar, previously the Black Pearl. Reports of being a fun place where the girls seem quite pro-active in getting guys to 'go upstairs'. Changed hands in 2017 and is now The Black Pearl Bar

  Review from Dick Farang, March 2017: Birthday suits

fish pool in paddyAt White Oyster Lounge on Soi Chaiyapornwithi the dress code for the swimmers has returned to normal, i.e. birthday suit, for quite a while now and that still applies today.

Also the in-house love nests are still included in the ST bar fine of 300 baht.

Most of their girls appear to be solid farmers' daughters recruited from the rice fields in the Korat-Buriram-Surin-Sisaket area and some look really pretty.

These experienced divers, who will gladly pick up 200 baht in coins from the swimming pool's bottom, must have received an intensive training in the fish pools in the paddies.

They are happy with 1,000 baht ST and I have never had one who failed to deliver.

Bottled Heineken still 80 baht, lady drinks 100 baht for Sangsom cola and 130 baht for beer.

  Review from Dick Farang, December 2015: String bikinis

At White Oyster Lounge on Soi Chaiyapornwithi the gates are already wide open at 2 p.m.

There are still diving nymphs, but they are wearing string bikinis now, because of police. That being said there are some twenty-somethings now with pretty bodies, who are not shy to show the contents of those string bikinis.

The whole lot (especially the tiles and the fans) needs a bit of repair and cleaning.

Bottled Heineken 80 baht now, lady drinks 130 baht.

  Review from Dick Farang, July 2015: An institution

There has been a (false) rumour on internet boards that White Oyster Lounge on Soi Chaiyapornwithi had been permanently closed.

At my visit some days ago I was told they had been closed for a short period because of the boss's holiday, but I am not sure if this was the real story.

My impression was they have restarted with all new staff, but at least there were some good naked diving nymphs picking up coins from the swimming pool bottom (still 200 baht for an ashtray filled with twenty 10-baht coins).

Anyway it is a great relief they still exist because, if most other bars on the Dark Side are perfectly interchangeable, White Oyster Lounge is a real institution, one of a kind.

Bottled Heineken still 90 baht.

  Review from Dick Farang, February 2015: Doing Well

Despite their isolated location White Oyster Bar on Soi Chaiyapornwithi is still doing very well.

When I entered and went to the second area I was followed by 20-year-old Pim from Korat, who was a bit chubby to my taste, but who was also very sweet and had no children.

The swimming pool at the rear is in fact in the garden, but there is a makeshift roof of beach carpets over it.

Instead of a lady drink Pim asked me 200 baht for swimming and a couple of minutes later she came back wrapped in a towel with an ashtray with the equivalent of 200 baht in 5-baht and 10-baht coins. She would dive to pick up each coin I threw in the water. Some other customers did the same with their companions and in the end four girls were cavorting in the swimming pool in their birthday suits.

Barfine (ST room included) 300 baht and 1,000 baht for the girl.

They have at least one ST room downstairs and several upstairs; all rooms have a complete bathroom with a bath or at least a shower cubicle.

Bottled Heineken 90 baht.

  Review from Dick Farang, April 2014: Wishing Well

White Oyster Bar is on Soi Chaiyapornwithi at the northern side of Mabprachan Lake.

Near the entrance are an unused bar and an unused jacuzzi. At the back is a second bar with an indoor pool.

A couple of naked girls are diving in this pool to pick up coins thrown in the water by patrons.

ST rooms are upstairs.

White Oyster Bar seems to be popular with groups of bikers.

Notes


Pattaya bars most likely to be listed are those that occupy a permanent looking standalone building. Beer bars in complexes will not be listed unless mentioned in dispatches. Gay/Thai/Karaoke bars are not listed due to a lack of expertise in those areas. Gogo bars are listed on a separate page. I have added food reviews but this is not a comprehensive service. I will only list eateries where people have submitted comments

The following reviews are those that I come across on the web, in guide books, from contributors and of course from my own visits. Reviewers may be unreasonably harsh and bar owners may present a rosy picture of their bars...so don't take everything at face value...go and see for yourself. Click on the street name to obtain a map of the bar area.

And a couple of words of warning:

  • In short time rooms...keep an eye on your wallet to ensure that it stays with you long time.

  • To those with Thai wives, be aware of the motor cycle taxi network used to keep tabs on errant husbands.

If anyone would like to add a review or information please email Dave at webmaster@pattayagogos.com
