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.
If anyone would like to add a review or information please email Dave at email@example.com
After several weeks of renovations, 3 Angels has reopened on the site of the now defunct DMT's on Soi 6. from the outside, you wouldn't really notice anything different. Signs have changed, girls haven't.
Inside the main bar, it still looks pretty much the same. Mirrors with Xmas lights around them remain. New sofas and wall treatments and the addition of a big bike on display (presumably the angels in the name are more to do with motorbikes than
DMT's, like most Soi 6 bars, had shit rooms, shit beds, shit showers and shit lighting. Not anymore. The new Dutch owner spent the money where it counts: In the bedroom. New entrance, new doors, new walls, flooring, everything. Looks like a proper
Western-style budget hotel now.
Gone is the communal shower with the half-working hot water and obligatory bucket. Now each room has its own shower with good water temp and pressure. There is inset incandescent lighting and new beds and mattresses.
The now open upstairs bar at Pook is said to feature girls. It seems a strange idea as the downstairs bar is solidly lady boy. I generally give the lady boys a wide birth and don't really fancy pushing past them to a rather unknown upstairs bar.
Note September 2009: Lady Boys
It is reported that lady boys now wander upstairs to mix with the girls
Bar fines are 500 Baht. There is an official split that dancers are 500 baht and hostesses are 300 Baht. But it seems that most, if not all, girls are dancers, even if they don't dance.
Review by Materialsman, Oct 2008: Beautiful Ladies
Now, I haven’t been to The Atlantic Bar for a couple or three years, since it’s supposed heyday, but I keep in touch with what’s happening on various Forums, including Thai-Anxiety, and consensus has been that the Atlantic is in
decline, and that the few remaining lookers there believe they have ‘pussies spun of the finest and purest gold thread’ and hardly give a punter the time of day.
Well, I have to say on entering the bar, I was pleasantly surprised! There were probably 25 girls in attendance, and this was around 21:30, before the ‘superstars’ can be assed to turn up for duty, and there were some very attractive
ladies on view, all resplendent in clingy white dresses, or other very tight white clothing. I am not sure if they have a different colour scheme for each night of the week, I will have to go back and check, but the overall effect on Tuesday was quite
We positioned ourselves in seats between the pool tables and the bar to get a good panoramic view of the lovelies and ordered a couple of bottled Heinekens, which came at a reasonable 70 baht a bottle considering the eye candy, we had a drink in Anna
Jet in Soi 7 last week and they charged like a ‘wounded rhinoceros’ for the same libations, with nothing anywhere near as good to look at pulchritude wise.
Perhaps true to form we weren’t hassled by the beauties, but I am the sort of guy that is happy to buy lady drinks for any lady I choose to buy for, but don’t enjoy being pressurised into doing so by unwelcome attention. We stayed for a
couple more and enjoyed the view, so overall I felt it was still a good place to sit and drink, and feel for sure if you were a regular enough guy and took a little time to get the know the stunners, there would be no problem in negotiating
‘extra curricular’ activities with the hostesses. Good service, reasonable prices, and beautiful ladies, what more could a man ask for?
Notes from Pattaya forums, Dec 2007: Girls on Top
This must be one of the most talked about bars in Pattaya. Some people love it and some people hate it.
Clearly the pretty girls are in charge about the selections and the lucky guy are probably fans of the bar. The unlucky guys then probably hate it and probably waste a fortune in lady drinks in the hope that they can get selected by the girls.
Many of the girls have followed manager Patrick to U Too bar a couple of blocks south on the same road.
Review from Ryan, Dec 2006: White and Blue Tags
You have two types of ladies working here, the ladies wearing white tags cannot leave the bar as the are solely to work in the bar, I found these ladies friendly, as a matter of fact I have made two really good friends from this type of lady from the
Then you have the ladies with the blue tags, you can barfine these women. Also the owners Boom and Johan are good hosts and do a lot for you, it is especially good if you wish to watch a sporting event.
Review from Carl, Nov 2006: Collecting Lady Drinks
Found a few crackers here nice girls very friendly and accommodating. After talking to a few girls they told me they do like collecting lady drinks then they like to disappear near closing time to go dancing down walking street.
Most of the girls at Atlantic can't even be bothered to notice you exist. Once you've got a drink in front of you, you might as well be invisible at this bar.
It wasn't just me, mind you. One time I was there, the guy next to me had something like four ladydrinks in front of him. He was sitting alone. Why? because the girls were too busy talking to each other on the other side of the bar! I couldn't believe
it. Every now and then one would sidle over, take a sip of her precious drink, and head back to chat with her friends.
I had thought I was ignored on my first visit because there was a football match on and perhaps the girls had been instructed not to chat up customers who were watching the game.
Not so. The second time around, I was still ignored, but at least I didn't buy four ladydrinks for non-existent ladies like the poor sap next to me.
Previously a short time but taken over by new owners in June 2016 and converted into an open bar.
Prices November 2016: Cheap
The bar doesn't offer available ladies but does offer bottle Chang at 59 Baht
News, July 2016: Making a bee line for the other side of the road
The bar has been converted to an open bar. It seems to have been taken over by the people who previously had the popular Soi 6 Corner Bar on the opposite corner, before the building was redeveloped into an empty space.
Reader review, Dec 2006: Bee There
A few changes seem to have occurred in this bar over the last year. The main one is a stock of new pretty girls. The general atmosphere in the bar definitely seemed different from all other bars down the street when I visited it.
The staff are polite and friendly. Drinks are very reasonably priced. You can go and have your fun nearby with your new "friend" then come back and relax in the bar and even have a game of pool on the nice slate-bed table.
If you want to listen to your favourite song you can be your own DJ on the computer disco system. It's definitely worth a visit even if you only want to play pool against their resident Thai lady pool hustler. She will out-drink and out-play you time
and time again!
Short time bar. Previously British Bull Dog. Seems to have scaled back to minimal staff and no girls. Closed in August/September 2008. A couple of girls re-appeared in July 2009. Now returned to British Bulldog, see below
Lured in by a suitably good looking girl, but then things went downhill a bit. The girl was a little demure but was friendly enough.
I ordered a lady drink and then noticed that the bin hadn't yet appeared at my table for my beer. The lady brought back her drink but still no bin. I asked the girl to bring the bin and had a look. The Thai whiskey & coke lady drink was a whopping
140 Baht. No wonder they weren't keen on showing the bill.
I asked the girl and she reckoned that she will only receive 20 Baht of the 140.
Somehow put me off the business in hand and I went in search of another bar more deserving of my trade. A bit of a shame as I didn't find another girl as deserving of my trade.
Review May 2008: Friendly Cows?
Always seems quiet but they seem to have a few pretty girls on hand. I have always been looked after well in the bar
There is a computerised music system with every track known to man.
They allow a bit of naughty stuff in the bar but they make of a play of shutting doors and standing guard. Easier just to retire upstairs.
Review April 2007: No Bull
There's no bar theme linking the bar with either Spanish bull fighting or even the Birmingham shopping centre. No, just a typical small soi 6 bar complete with the usual 2 person sofas.
My drinking companion reckoned that the bar was Thai owned.
The bar seemed well run and the bar tabs were fair with bottled beer going for 70-75 Baht (strangely two prices for the same brand of beer though!)
But as always, merits in this type of bar are down to the hostess of choice. My selection was eloquent, witty, pretty and suitably enticing so the bar was therefore a hit.
Pattaya Soi 6
(Towards the 2nd Road end)
At Butterfly Bar off Soi Siam Country Club bottled Heineken is 85 baht now and the ST bar fine (room included) is still 250 baht. Lady drink prices depend on what the girl wants: 100 baht for a Spy red, 115 baht for a bottled Leo, etc.
Review from James, March 2011: Knowing How to party
I tried several short time bars in Soi 6. Butterfly & neighbour Superstar , were great fun.
There were a few Cuties ladies in both bars. I preferred Butterfly, less girls but they're friendly and know how to party and be fun too. Good sex too of course. I had fun with Som and Leedear , great bodies! In Superstar, Bee is
also really cute. I paid 300+1000 for ST, but figure out after that it could work for 1000 all inclusive...I did not care really as ladies were great. Bar fine was 700 at first, then become 500 later...
Review from Malcolm, January 2010: Nicest Room
S.T. 300 for bar, 700 for girl. Nicest S.T. room I have seen. Not en suite but shower room good also.
Review from jj, July 2006: Fly In
Butterfly Bar is an all too typical Soi 6 ST bar. Nicely appointed in wood and tile with comfortable sofas and discreet cubicles, it is a perfect example of mediocrity and the paramount importance of the staff. The current owner seems to have sunk a
fortune into the place, but no matter how attractive the decor, no matter what the owner's intentions, the ladies in residence are the key to return business.
The curtains on the cubicles showed promise of special things to come. False alarm. Our ladies-of-the-hour were attractive, funny and talkative, but generally non-responsive, allowing a minimum of grab and tickle. Some bars have a complete lack of
ambience but fun girls. Fun ladies trump decor any time.
Butterfly reportedly has a staff of 10 but on this week night only 6 were in evidence. They reportedly are all non-salaried free-lancers so the "go upstairs" refrain was all too frequent. There is an unused tiny dance platform immediately
inside the door. We were offered 'a show' for a 1000 - a bit steep when the ST BF is a mere 300.
Rumor has it that there is a new owner in the offing. I, for one, would hope that he has a gimmick, a way to break the Soi 6 pattern. For one thing he should ban the ladies from wearing jeans. Perhaps even institute a uniform of sorts that better
advertises the available assets. An agreement with the ladies in residence for a pay-to-play closed-curtain "show" priced somewhat below 1000, would be one possible way to integrate the available decor to attract customers. Unless he finds a
way to make Butterfly stand out, it will simply remain a nondescript ST bars in a city full of nondescript ST bars.
I like the rooms at the Butterfly Bar on Soi 6. The inside bar as well as the showers are new. Even the coasters for drinks are top notch. I took one as a souvenir. It has a photo of one of the girls on it.
This is a down-to-earth local pub with a quality pool table, dart board etc - but with one exception... it's in Pattaya!
Fun, relaxed, great beer, great company and a brilliant landlord.
A very good local pub type bar with aircon. lots of Brits use it as well as Aussies and Yanks and the odd German so a good mix- usually has girls and its interesting watching the comings and goings to the silom massage across the rd.
Its a great place to have an afternoon beer before a night session.
lots of banter and if your a newbie Willie is a great guy to show you the ropes. I think Willie is one of the great characters in Pattaya and he is worth dropping in on.
I will always take a seat and order a beer no matter what, rather than turn tail and flee if the bar is full of dragons, first impressions can be deceiving, and there could be hidden gems just out of line of sight. However, on this occasion first
impressions were 100% correct, and the bar was staffed with some pretty ordinary girls.
Now, the reason for picking The Cherry Bar was that it was owned by one of my all time favourite ex-TQ1 dancers, Khun Tom and her equally lovely sister, and used to be staffed by a fairly attractive young crowd of girls, sadly no longer! I don’t
know if they sold out the bar or not, but I realised my error of choice, drank my bottle as fast as I could, and check binned even though it was my mates turn to pay, never looked or cared about the prices, just wanted away in a hurry!
Personally I like the Cherry Bar on the corner of soi 3 and second road. Nice girls and atmosphere. That would be my 'must visit' bar everytime.
(Smile Avenue Beer bar complex opposite Mike's Mall)
Open beer bar with electronic dartboard. Popular with Pattaya forum members.
Short time bar opened in May 2007, Previously the ISS Bar
Review from Dave May 2009: Definitely worth a visit
I was welcomed by the owner (Alan) who was a great source of info while I was in Pattaya and a hell of a nice guy as well.
There was 4 or 5 girls there ranging 5's to 8's out of 10 and they were all very friendly.
Great little bar, good pricing on beer with a large selection of some of the best Malts (prices on the bottles, so no surprises) and the place seems to come alive at night.
I stayed there and the rooms were very good (Bt500 per night) and cleaned daily but if you want something more up market, he also rents out condo's over towards Jomtien). No problems with taking girls from other bars back.
All in all, definitely worth a visit.
Review June 2008: Drinker's Pub
The smallish bar has a lot of character, especially for Soi 6. The owner is clearly passionate about his drinking and his military. The bar is decorated accordingly and the bar is also stocked with an enormous selection of drinks. Perhaps from the
Scottish connection, I assumed that the array of bottles would be mostly whiskeys, but there is actually a wide selection of all drinks.
Most of the seating is focussed at the bar so perhaps there is not so much opportunity for canoodling. But there are a fair amount of girls on offer.
My companion for the evening was very attractive and was very good company. It also made a change that she was a cider drinker rather than the more usual Thai Whisky or orange juice
Later on the evening the bar became pretty full, with what I assumed were regulars, as everyone seemed to know everyone.
I can see myself joining them.
From The Clansman May 2008: Spirit of Scotland
A Scottish themed bar. We offer over 50 different types of whiskey, malts and blends, and a huge selection of beers and ciders. Our fully stocked spirit bar also offers a selection of draught beer.
Inside you will truly feel the spirit of Scotland, and our lassies will make you feel more than welcome.
Owned and run by an Ex Royal Marine, Alan welcomes all ex and serving soldiers and sailors alike.
Classroom Beer Bar
Pattaya Soi 2
Beer bar renamed to Lek's Classroom Beer Bar, see below
Short time bar with expensive lady drinks at 150 Baht
Prices November 2016:
Chang 80 baht. Lady drink 130 baht. Quoted 800 for BJ and BF.
Note from Malcolm, January 2012: Still Blowing
The Click Bar on Soi 6 is still giving blow jobs at the rear of the bar. 800B for BJ and 80B for orange juice.
Review Sep 2007: Kitsch
I was strangely drawn into visiting the bar on the back of bad reviews. Sometimes one needs to get a little perspective.
But as it turns out the 'badness' turned out to be more bad taste than anything. The decor is surely a little 'retro' or maybe just cheap. The dodgy looking fixtures and fittings maybe emphasised the latter option.
But none of this proved much of a problem when beset by a team of girls intent on getting up close and personable. They weren't really quite top notch but they ensured that the stay was pleasurable enough.
Previously Maximum Club. Became Dancehall Club Pattaya in October 2011. Didn't last long and closed in December 2011. Probably marks the end of the area as a nightlife centre after the heart was ripped out by a new hotel development.
Coyote bar opened in October 2015. Reported to have topless dancing in about April 2018 so elevated to the GoGos list.
News August 2018: Dark
Dolls has gone dark with a notice on the door suggesting that the bar is
Review from Dick Farang, November 2015: Super Baby Doll
Dolls coyote bar on Soi 6 has indeed reopened.
Everything inside is rather chaotic and cheaply laid out, even by Soi 6 norms. There are three different stages with chrome poles, two of them consisting of white transparent plastic cubes with lighting inside.
They appear to open from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m.
I saw about a dozen dancers in black coyote outfits and a bottle blonde owner/manager/mamasan. Most of the coyotes were average or slightly better.
The best looking girl was Ann, a 27-year old, slim threeholer who started her career at Super Baby A-GoGo on Soi Diamond and after that has been freelancing on Beach Road for several years. Only pity Ann has added some tattoos.
Not the slightest nudity.
There were several customers, including a Japanese (the first one I have ever seen on Soi 6, but I am not a regular there) who was showering 20-baht notes.
Music was deafening.
For everything Dolls coyote bar is more expensive than Passion Dance Club, also on Soi 6.
ST in-house fun 1,500 baht all in (500 for barfine and room, 1,000 baht for girl).
Bottled Heineken 120 baht, lady drinks 150 baht.

From Full Moon Bar, June 2010: Complete Makeover
Each room has been completely redone, electrics to European standards, the widest beds in the market, new bedding, linens and towels, large side mirrors and ceiling for kinky activities, handrail for girls, spacious sofas and chairs for games out of
bed or on the floor, black tiles, quiet and efficient air conditioner and ceiling fan, and even a card to turn on and turn off the electricity at the end of session, as in the best hotels.
In the rooms (except orange), there is a spacious bathroom with sink, new shower and toilet, with hot and cold water and a large mirror for playing a bit if you feel like it.
On the first floor so we have four new rooms: the black, red, orange and yellow for your mood. The rooms have dimmers, a black light lamps, and white light in ceiling for most voyeurs. The decoration is made of sexy photos of girls and, for relaxation,
trees and flowers adorn the rooms finely colored, a touch of country. The rooms red and black are huge, the other two smaller.
On the second floor from late June 2010 will be four other rooms in the same spirit, which will be rented on a daily, weekly or monthly rates. And a metal staircase was installed at the rear of the building against the wall for fire safety.
The bar has also been completely redecorated and extended. There are large individual seats, sofas and new air conditioning, electricity, etc. There is also a special private playroom where the customer can be alone (or with friends) with one or two or
more girls on comfortable sofas to relax completely in his own way during the time that suits him
So in the Full Moon Bar, everything is now above local standards. From the staff side, there are 17 girls and a few other freelancers, young and sexy to satisfy the desires of customers from 10 am to 1 am.
I talk at length about my bar as I'm proud, because it finally became beautiful, clean, safe, efficient and facilitated by a young but experienced and effective girls that I trained myself.
(Next to Alcazar Lady Boy Cabaret)
Nightclub which seems to be targeted at Indians. It didn't find its target and closed a couple of months later in early 2012.
Probably spent more time in GoodFellas than anywhere else, but the good looking girls are snapped up early. Well thought out bar, attractive, good seating, clean. Haven't used their short time room though.
A couple of the girls out front seem to have developed deep voices presumably from the large amount of 'welcome handsum man' calls uttered. Anyway I didn't hang around to investigate further, plenty more bars in the gauntlet.
I feel a bit sorry for any naturally husky or tall girls in Soi 6. Given that one has only a split second choice as one passes, the height and voice is a high priority filter for me. But on the other hand the lady boy's seem to do well enough for
customers so perhaps tall girls get a lot of interest. I wonder if there are ever any shocks in the short time room when the customer gets to see that his lady boy is in fact a girl.
I found Goodfella's to be a nice, clean, well laid out bar with some pretty girls.
In May of 2004 a fire engulfed the entrance of Hollywood Discotheque located in South Pattaya. A problem with the exterior lighting was blamed for the fire which luckily resulted in no deaths or major injures.
In October 2006 it happened again as the entire entrance to the club was engulfed in flames. The fire occurred at around as staff were arriving for work. There were no customers inside the club and once again, no injuries or deaths were reported.
Firefighters were quickly on scene and once again found it difficult to gain access to the fire because of the location of the club and the narrowness of the access roads. Eventually the fire was brought under control and the damage was accessed and the
cause of the fire was put down to an electric short circuit.
Good well priced food at this bar and very well positioned for checking out the talent at other bars as well as getting recon from the expats and regulars that drink there.
Also a good bar to go to if you want to see any sporting events.
Good place to chill out if you aren't in the mood for a bar girl.
Review from Swanks, August 2006: Tarred with a New Brush
The lightning struck tower of change has hit the Jack Tar big time! The place is still inhabited by the same bawdy and good natured ex-pat crowd with the odd tourist who thinks he has slipped in unnoticed, but gone are the poisonous grim meanies and
especially the chief viper from the kitchen.
Not only was my visit well worth it for the food, but I got a beaming smile , very friendly, very welcoming and attentive service from some quite charming waiting and bar staff. Nothing seemed too much trouble for them!
I thought I'd gone in the wrong bar by mistake! Well worth a visit now! Don't forget its not a late night place though, more for an afternoon of spirited debate , if you take my drift!
Review from Swanks, April 2006: Service with a Scowl
This always was a "Beer n Sport" bar and was previously very welcoming.
Since the ousting of Scrumpy George by the bar girl mafia there, it really has been the tail wagging the dog! George's management style might have been a bit "Faulty Towers" ,but he managed to keep a lid on what started as a bad attitude in
the kitchen,and then spread to the rest of the staff like clap at Loy Krathong. Now it really has took hold and even the new Thai manager seem to have mastered the lip curl (as used on social inferiors by Thais) . This is issued on every possible
occasion now and usually is accompanied by "Knowing looks" between staff members. This attitude problem has been mentioned to me by several of the former customers without my saying anything first so it cant be just my imagination.
Beer still cheep and the food is possibly the best, for the price, in Pattaya. Just don't expect service with a smile.
The first time I went there was reserved signs on the bar and tables beside the bar where no one was sitting. I bought a drink and was told by the bar staff I would need to leave the bar area as the seats were all reserved. I said I would sit at the bar
and move when the people who reserved the seats arrived. I was told this was not allowed and had to sit myself away from the bar area. Drank my drink and said I would not be back.
Went again last night about a year after the first time to see if things have changed.
What do you think? Exactly the same. Again the staff informed me I could not sit at the reserved seats even though no one was sitting at them.
Will not be back again.
Review from Pattaya Chat, March 2005: Good Track Record
Very nicely fitted out but like has already been said it is in the middle of nowhere but that can be a good thing if you want a quiet drink with a few friends away from the madness and there is plenty of space for parking in the pub car park. The couple
of times I've been in the place it was pretty empty which is a shame really as it could be a good boozer if it can get enough custom.
The manager used to own Jools in Bkk about 10 years ago and also the TQ2 as well as managing Delaneys/Shenanigans and is a nice guy.
Great weekend carvery and wonderful staff. 50 Baht for a coke, 30 Baht for water
Review from Pattaya Chat, March 2005: Pea and Sham Soup!
Was one of the Manager's first customers when he had Jools in Bangkok where portions were super-size, especially the Pea and Ham soup. Therefore when I tried Jamesons a while back for lunch and saw the aforementioned soup on the menu I decided that past
experience would prevail. Ordered Pea and Ham Soup and Roast Beef sandwich.
Soup arrived, a smattering of green sludge was deposited on the bottom of the bowl. indeed not enough liquid to drown the proverbial fly! The sandwich arrived, two miniscule pieces of bread buried under a mass of rabbit fodder, specifically requested
NOT to be supplied! Somewhere there were two tiny slivers of meat, and I do mean tiny!
The manager was called for who just laughed in my face as I explained politely my dissatisfaction. Needless to say never been back.

Beer bar. A very friendly bar and very cheap
Pattaya Soi 6
Lady boy short time bar. Seems to have gone dark
2nd Road: Soi 5
Beer bar with no hostesses.
I have only been there when it is being used as a waiting area for the PIC Kitchen restaurant. A good quality restaurant trying to provide a 'real Thai' experience, sitting on the floor surrounded by lots of lush vegetation.
Previously noted for blow jobs at the bar but these seem to have been forced into short time rooms
Prices November 2016:
Chang 75 baht. Lady Drink 130 baht. 800 baht for BJ and BF in the bar.
Review from Dave16, October 2016:
I paid a visit to this bar to investigate whether the reputation for naughtiness was deserved.
It is! Few girls in residence but the one I chose quickly began some investigations of her own. Within 30 seconds of sitting down her tongue was down my throat and her hands inside my shorts. My shorts were soon around my knees and I was getting a hand
job for the price of one lady drink. Needless to say we quickly adjourned to a slightly closed off area at the back of the bar and I got a first class bj and thorough ball licking for 700 baht.
Well recommended for a visit if you are short of time!
News June 2014: Something Clicks
It is reported that King Kong has been bought out by the more fun loving Click Bar. Hopefully this could mean a return to the hey day of King Kong when it was once noted as the raunchiest bar in Pattaya
Comment September 2010: Low Key
The bar seems to be pretty low key these days with little signs of the traditional naughtiness and not many girls. Bottled beer 85 Baht.
Previously a short time bar has bikini clad dancing girls but switched to a drinking bar in April 2011.
Review from Dave16, October 2016: Not so immune
I was accosted in the usual Soi 6 manner as I was going to a 7/11 to buy some smokes. I have become almost immune to the cries of Helloooo and Welkum you hear every day a hundred times in Pattaya but this particular girl attracted me so I
asked her name and promised to see her the next day. A week later I kept my promise and she remembered me and was pleased I had come back although belatedly.
The interior of the bar is dominated by an old motorcycle which I think is a Harley although being an old Norton man I can not be sure. There is a smoking area outside the bar. Inside is a bit Spartan with only one sofa and a couple of chairs and tables.
But the place is comfortable enough.
We agreed a fee (expensive but I was horny and in no mood to haggle) and I paid her out and we went to my hotel. She did her best to justify the price of my mini adventure with a superb bedroom performance
News April 2012: Closed In
The bar seems to have abandoned the open bar experiment and reconstructed the front wall.
News April 2011: Not So Much Kissing
Kiss Kool has reopened with all the smart sofa seating stripped out to be replaced by stools. And for the moment, no sign of any girls.
Kiss Me Beer Bar
(in complex near Beach Rd end)
Review from Dave16, October 2016: Underwater Pool
Kiss Me Beer Bar is in a complex near the Beach Road end of Soi 3.
A couple of attractive ladies work here but the rest are distinctly below par. Some of them should have retired years ago but nevertheless they are friendly enough if you just want to chill out with a beer or two.
There is a pool table but it can not be used if it is raining as it is not fully under cover.
I visited this bar two nights running and stayed for an hour or two. On both occasions I was the only customer so pop in. They will be pleased to see you!

The bar has been bought by a couple of Australians who report that for the moment the bar will continue as is.
April 2008: Roomy
The bar has had something of a makeover. It is a little roomier than before and looks good with its traditional red theme.
January 2006: Clean and Fun Rooms
For clean and fun rooms I like La La and Mandarin. Both are clean, right upstairs and have mirrors. La La actually has more mirrors though.
Summer 2005: Sexy Uniform
English owned bar with a dozen girls each sporting the sexy uniform shown left. Surely a friendly place. I am not sure that the Natural Planet channel selected for the bar TV is very appropriate but that is hardly the reason for choosing to drink there.
Short time is 500 Baht for girl and 300 Baht for the room. The shower is in a separate bathroom though.

Review from Dave16, October 2016: Pool classes
Second Road near top of Soi 4. south side.
Typical open beer bar with very friendly staff and a decent band.
Obligatory pool table and one of the friendliest ladies, Nat, is a red hot player. I have spent a lot of time in this bar because the atmosphere is good and no hassle for lady drinks. Even the fact I can rarely beat Nat at Pool does not put me off
The bar opened with enthusiasm with pretty girls and cheap drinks.
Originally the bar had a glass front so as to show off 2 coyote dancing girls. The open front rarely works well when privacy for short time interviews is preferred for most of the regulars to the soi. So, following rapidly in the footstep of other bars
who have tried the open front approach, the curtains soon appeared.
Review from Pattaya-Live April 2009: Cheapish drinks
The girls do look stunning in there uniforms which are different every day.
The expected high prices and bad attitude was completely wrong though and the old trick of putting the '10' on full time door duty didn't happen ether .
1000 BT for ST including room and cheapish drinks will certainly have my hard earned dosh a new home on a regular basis. The reason I say this is because the place was worth it! It was spotless, smelled nice and had been completely renovated upstairs to
a very high standard.
Time will tell, but I suspect the new owner knows her stuff and has seen the way to survival and success in Pattaya.
Lisa Bar 2
Pattaya Soi 6 (Soi Yodsak)
Open short time bar associated with Lisa Bar on the other side of the soi. Was merged into Spider Girl Bar in 2014.
A trendier kind of hangout with fusion foods and sounds. It's not uncommon to see more Thais than farangs but farangs are more than welcome. It's a great place to see the young hip with money to spend.
There's a "smart & stylish" dress code.
(Beer bar complex opposite Mike's Mall)
Open beer bar/sports bar. They have a pool table, darts, air hockey and a Wii. Expensive lady drinks were noted though.
The live music starts after nine o'clock and the band was pretty good. Supposedly they were from the Philippines.
The food was good. I had an appetizer sampler tray. I wanted to finish it but couldn't. My lady had som tam and some nibbles off my tray. She liked her food and mine as well.
Review from Pattaya Chat, June 2006: Wheat Beer
If your looking for a place to find girls then look elsewhere but I enjoyed it in there, there is a fairly good Filipino band and It gets quite busy from about 10pm, they serve Erdinger lager and wheat beer both draught and bottles, the bottles of wheat
beer go down a dream but are expensive at 195bht for 500ml.
I'd recommend it as a place to take your girl if your looking to get away from the sleaze for a few hours, I took my girl friend's family in there and they were really impressed and enjoyed it, you get a lot of Germans getting up on the dance floor and
so there's plenty to laugh at.
Nicely decorated. Very quiet on a Monday night but this was attributed to it being the night off for the house band. The replacement band were not really capturing much interest.
Drinks are expensive and are in the rang 100-150 Baht.
Personally I will stick to the more lively music bars of Walking Street.
Blow job bar, now has an outside bar section. Nice big rooms with sofa, aircon and shower
Prices November 2016:
Chang 55 baht. Ladydrink 130 baht. 1000 baht for BJ and BF.
Review from Papi, September 2015: A 'must go' bar
My Friend You Bar has to be in my opinion the best S/T Bar on Soi 6. The girls are energetic and certainly fun to be with, plus you will never be pressed to buy a lady upon arrival.
I have been to Pattaya three times now and every time I go I make sure to go there. The owner doesn't seem to be motivated to make any major renovations and the girls are never dressed up in the same attire such as other bars may do, but the jovial
atmosphere makes up for all of that.
The rooms are clean and they have a shower in the rooms. Oui is one of the veterans there and she can arrange for one of the best 1, 2 or 3 girl S/T sessions you can ever ask for.
A 'Must Go' S/T bar for first timers and seasoned visitors alike.
Review From Alex Aug 2007: Oh My God!
What can I say but
OH MY GOD!!!! you don't get waitress service like that anywhere in England
Not to sure about the 300 Baht bar fine to stay in the bar though
January 2006: No Thanks
I Visited the Belgian owned My Friend You Bar. As previously mentioned, it takes your eyes 20 minutes or so to get used to the total blackout.
ST room and shower worse than YMCA doss and the rooms are on the 3rd. floor - oldies need mountaineering gear.
Do not let your wallet out of your sight- take it with you in the shower. 800 Baht pays for room + lady. Pay the bar 300 Baht first and 500 Baht the lady after.
Mainly middle-aged female choice + 1 ladyboy.
This is a "no thanks" bar for me.
December 2005: Lucrative
There are 3 bays each with 3 small sofas. The ambient lighting is unsurprisingly near darkness. There is no time for small talk here. The girls like to get straight to work on their job.
I think the impatience in getting on with the job is based on the steady stream of customers. All the sofas were taken on my visit, and at 800 baht a blow, it must be one of the most lucrative bars in Pattaya
The bar area was demolished but has now been rebuilt.
I noticed that a lot of the ladyboys are getting very pushy with farangs as they walk by especially at nois bar beside kritts. Spoke to the manager Joy and owner Noi about this and they don't seem to want to know. A lot of guys get worked up with anger
as they are being pushed and shoved by these ladyboys as they are trying to pass the bars
I have spent quite a few hours here since Noi is a friend of my (former) girl friend. Noi and her husband (English guy) has always been a good host in the bar and they have quite a few good looking girls here.
There is a pool table in the back and a big screen TV where they show most football matches and formula 1.
2nd Road: Soi 2
Beer bar. Demolished to make way for a new hotel in August 2011.
Pattaya Soi 6 (Soi Yodsak)
Short time bar didn't re-open from police closure in May 2007. Now a massage shop.
Vic's Bar, Beach Rd. near Soi 4, north Pattaya, was sold and is now Oceane.
Vic's was a great sunset view, a couple of couches and comfortable bar with friendly, no hassle staff, and great prices for food and beer.
All that remains is the 50B happy hour beers until 7pm. non-looker girls badger at bar, food prices up 75%, Lady drinks, even beers, 150B. Music is disco/techno for a crowd, mostly, over 60; and 1 remaining coach moved to rear without
sunset view; no logic at all. Just a damn shame. My mates and I, just don't meet there anymore. Also, keep a watch on your bin.
Short time ladyboy bar, previously a somewhat rough bar with girls. Became Candy Bar on 26th August 2017.
News from Ishi, August 2015: Adding one extra bit
The Ladyboy Bar Pat Bar has become Pat Bar 1.
Review March 2009: Naughty
I stopped for a quick beer and got a little bit distracted by another customer who was getting down to some very naughty stuff.
Review Sep 2007: Run Down
To put it bluntly, Pat Bar is a little run down. The dilapidated sofas were held together with a stretch cover that had seen better days. These perhaps contributed to the less than fresh odour that permeated the bar.
The bar staff were friendly and no doubt the girls would have proved equally friendly had we not shooed them away for not quite living up to our high expectations.
I was dreading a visit to the loos made out of necessity, but there was no need to worry as they were perfectly acceptable.
I have read a few reports that the girls in the bar can get quite naughty but somehow I didn't feel inclined to linger to find out.
I did pop by once before when I thought it would be good to watch the last England vs Australia test match in an 'a traditional English pub'. I popped out quick quick when they were showing American tennis! This leads me to doubt that there is any actual
English connection to this bar.
Anyway I eventually visited again (TVs were off this time).
The bar is pleasantly decorated and features rows of tankards and glasses suspended from the ceiling.
The tables overlooking the short time bars are popular, presumably people like to feed one type of hunger whilst considering their options over the other type of hunger.
The range of farang beers was good but I stuck with draft tiger at 60 Baht (the bottled option was 70 Baht).
Newspapers are available for the short while it takes to knock up the food. The menu was extensive and the food was good but not exceptional. They probably take similar high quality boil in the bag/microwave catering supplies as other fine farang food
restaurants in Pattaya.
Not many customers were lingering after eating though, there are better things to do in Soi 6
From Queen Victoria Inn
A traditional English pub in the heart of Soi 6 where you can have a drink or traditional English cooking with no hassle. Live sport on large screen TV on Saturday and Sunday.
Note that this is not a short time bar as per the majority of those in Soi 6
Short time bar opened in September 2008. Showers down the hallway.
Notes August 2009: Poor Value
Lady Drinks are now 150 Baht. Poor value indeed if you get one of the girls who's only contribution to social intercourse is an immediate go up now. But saying that other customers seemed to be getting better value for money.
65 Baht for Leo to 80 Baht for Singa Light, spirits 65 - 120 Baht.
Rent of short time room is 300 Baht. (no bar fine)
Bar fine is 1000 Baht between 1300-2000
Bar fine is 500 Baht between 2000-0100
Review November 2008: Bicardi Breezer Trick
I popped by a couple of times and went inside, again to a hot lounge. But the aircon was then turned on and it cooled down.
I bought a few drinks and everything was cool.
On the subsequent visit the girl opted for an expensive Bicardi Breezer without asking first. Always pisses me off so the bar is now on my bars to avoid list.
Review September 2008: A Hot Quicky
The bar is a little different from its immediate neighbours in that it features a prominent outside bar counter.
There is a back canoodling room but its existence isn't prominently signposted. It has rather a small neon sign to the lounge.
Inside there are a couple of poles, some sofa seating and a water feature. Even though one of the girls was well worthy of an interview, there was no way I could stay in the backroom due to a lack of aircon. I don't know if this was temporary or
permanent, but it was impossibly hot.
The beer prices were reasonable.
The beer is already up for sale. Presumably due to it being done by a property developer rather than an indictment on the first few days of trading.
I've only been here once. I had read on some forum that it had the prettiest girls, and I think that proved to be true. I went upstairs, and it was indeed shabby. No shower in the room, either, which I guess is standard for soi 6 but I really don't want
do deal with that anymore. And maybe I am the only one who cares about such things, but these short-time rooms gross me out. They do not change the bedding in these places all day (if not all week), even though dozens of women get pounded into the
mattress every day. The best you can hope for is a new large towel on top of the bed. No thanks.
I do not like the places where you get the hummer while sitting at the bar -- not comfortable enough for me. I like the couch hummer, where I can really stretch back and enjoy myself. Any suggestions for other bars with excellent couch hummers? That did
not seem to be an option at Red Point during my only visit. I did see a partially hidden alcove on the far back right of the bar that might have some promise.
I have always liked the Red Point the best. On the north side of Soi 6, 50 yards or so from Beach Road. Big red dot on the sign.
The mamasan trains her girls well. They don't bother you for drinks. Usually very good BBBJ, rim, etc. A few 3-holers. Rooms upstairs are decent.
When you walk up there are usually girls sitting out front on the street. If you do not see one you like just go inside and sit down on one of the sofas. If you do not like the first girls who sits with you, just hold out. Mamasan will eventually throw
one of her best looking ones at you.
Short time rooms at Route 69 are horrible. Just a mattress on the floor with separate showers
Prices are now 300 Baht for the room and 700 for the girl paid upfront.
Review from Tim, Oct 2006: The Price is Right
Had a few girls at the front door that interested me.. went in.. a bit dark as are ALL the bars.. a nice girl followed.. however not to my taste.. I asked for another girl.. again not to my taste.. NOW these girls were attractive and friendly.. but I
have my own taste in women.. finally got a nice girl..
ALL of the girls NEVER ask me to buy them a drink.. after a few minutes.. went upstairs for a roll in the hay as they say.. price was right.. 300 + 500.. no hassle.. rooms are bit on the old side and shower is as well.. but I was there for an afternoon
of fun.. not to live there.. In fact returned there a few times for other girls.. all were friendly, no hassle and good in bed
Vietnam War themed short time bar opened 5th October 2007. Bottled beer 75 Baht. Room 300, barfine 500 after 8pm, 1000 before. Standard price for girls. Lady drinks 102 Baht.
Notes, November 2016: Prices
Bottled beer at 75 Baht for Chang and a lady drink for 130 Baht.
Review by Ken, Oct 2008: Great Hosts
Saigon Girl is owned by Terry and Nung previously of T.G. bar. He and his wife are great hosts and make all patrons welcome. He is also a keen biker who will always talk about his passion. I have known Terry for several years and he is a constant
information source on what is happening in pattaya.
Review by Materialsman, Oct 2008: Little Red Hats
Before ‘stumps up’ decided that one more beer wouldn’t go amiss, so we stumbled off to the Saigon Girl bar in Soi 6. I have a hazy recollection of being in this bar last Thursday, and remember being captivated by the red uniforms and
little red hats all the girls were wearing, and so it was!
The bar has a sort of confused Saigon theme, posters of The Deer Hunter, and a mural of the poster of the sunset from Apocalypse Now on one wall, as well as many posters of various big hairy motorcycles, perhaps the owner is some sort of grizzled Harley
Davidson riding Vietnam Vet?
The girls are not the prettiest in the Soi, but they make up for that with their rare enthusiasm for their work, and the uniform works for me, you probably think I am some kind of uniform obsessed pervert right? Probably 100% spot on! So, two drinks
later, and a couple of lady drinks nestled in the bins, it was time for me to mosey on home, but as I stand up and take one last look around before diving through the curtain, I see my drinking buddy on a sofa with two cuddly girls, one either side of
him, massaging his privates for all they are worth, dressed in those pretty red uniforms, and still wearing the hats, a lovely memory, a Kodak moment indeed, ain’t life in Pattaya grand!
Review Oct 2007: Apocalypse Now
The opening night was well attended with plenty of food laid on to keep an army of bikers well fed.
In anticipation of a good turnout the owners had closed down their Route 69 bar for the evening and reposted the girls for duties in Saigon Girl.
The war theme of the bar is surely unique in Pattaya. The walls are decorated by pictures of the Vietnam War. Partitions around the bar are made from "Explosives" canisters. There's even a NAAFI seemingly located in the loos. The girls were
wearing military styled skirts and blouses but somewhat skimpier than female troopers may wear. The peace badge seemed slightly out of place though. A couple of jeeps were parked outside the bar for extra effect.
Presumably Rest & Recreation is the purpose of the bar but the bar layout seems a bit of a disaster for this purpose.
There are comfortable seats but these arranged facing the bar almost like as if to provide a show for the people sitting at the bar. There's not a shred of privacy and when a girl was taking good personal care of me, I somehow saw the entire bar as an
auditorium with me and my girl being the performers.
There are a couple of dance poles on podiums but the bar isn't going into the gogo business.
Short time bar previously Dirty Den's. Renamed to Sky Bar in November 2007, Closed in April 2012. Then reopened in autumn 2012 by Skeeter P and Ruffles, well known forum members of Pattaya Addicts. It is now an open bar.
News from Paul, March 2016: New management
After some financial unpleasantries amongst the previous owners, the bar has now been taken over by those who brought you La La Land further down the soi.
Short time bar opened August 2009. Good rooms with private showers. However lady boys are in the ascendancy.
News November 2014: Prices
Lady drinks are 160 Bat.
Review October 2010: Prices
Named spirit and mixer is 120 Baht
Review August 2009: No Kisses and No Smoke
Another bar from the team that designed the newly opened Smoke & Mirrors.
Again the theme is an outside sitting area with bar and an inside aircon area also with a bar.
This bar is a little narrower than Mirrors and this reflects in a bench seat down one side. This time the inside bar is an extension of the outside bar and this saves a fair bit of space. There is a little more seating at the back of the bar and a
dancing pole at the front. It is attractive and stylish but the open layout doesn't offer much in the way of privacy for short time interviews.
The drinks prices were very reasonable at 80 Baht for a my beer and 80 Baht for a lady beer.
I would have stayed longer but my lady did a pre-arranged runner and there were few appealing replacements.
& Mirrors Bar
Pattaya Soi 6
Open short time bar opened in July 2018. Previously Z Bar, Bret Bar and before
that Christina May.
Short time bar opened 9th May 2009. Ownership connections with Offshore Bar.
Review May 2009: Typical
To be fair I normally would have walked on by due to the girls on show, but being inquisitive I said hello to a girl and walked in.
It turns out to be a perfectly typical Soi 6 bar with sofas set out cross ways down the bar. It is perhaps smaller than most because they have made a bit of space out front for those that would like to have a cigarette outside.
Unfortunately my drinking partner was a hardened Soi 6 lady who simply was not interested in pleasantries nor an enticing interview. So things didn't pan out.
A bottle of beer is set at around the 75 Baht mark.
A bit of a naff visit, but there was nothing to suggest things wouldn't be better on another day with a different girl.
Soi 6 Corner Bar
Pattaya Soi 6 (Soi Yodsak)
(Corner of 2nd Road)
Now an open bar, previously a short time bar. Doesn't have short time rooms. Has a room arrangement with nearby bar but this will cost room charge + barfine. Closed and flattened in early 2015.
Soi 6/1 Beer Bar
Pattaya Soi 6/1
(Opposite back entrance to Queen Vic)
Review from Ryan , Dec 2007: Great Wee Place
For a few drinks before you venture out is the Soi6/1 Beer Bar named after the soi and is across the road from the back exit of the Queen Vic.
One cracking looking lady works there but the rest are a mixed bag, but you don't go here for that its a great wee place for few beers and the staff are great. Also if you bring along any music DVDs you want played they will play it for you.
The taxi motor bike rank is based outside of it and they are also a great bunch of guys.
The bar operates the policy of keeping the bins on the bar rather than in front of the customer. It always seems that the bar has something to hide when they do this, and in this case they were hiding the fact that lady drinks cost a very expensive 125
Baht. (Bottled beer was 65)
Short time bar new for 2009. Intermittent opening in 2011/12 and currently closed and up for sale. re-opened in December 2013 but didn't last long. Re-opened on 1st May 2014
News from Dick Farang, September 2016: closed again
On Third Road Venus Love Lounge has closed once more.
There is a saying that a sucker is born every minute.
And there is another saying that on every flight to Thailand there is a sucker with more money than brains, who thinks he will be the most successful bar owner of the century.
The truth however is that the only way to become a millionaire in Pattaya is to arrive as a billionaire.
Review from Dick Farang, May 2016: Lounging again
Venus Lounge on Third Road has indeed reopened.
The interior is still the same with an unused stage with chrome poles.
Outside, on the terrace, some ladyboys were sitting.
The only available female inside was Naang from Korat, 40 years old, three children, shy , short and full. She was adamant that she would never do anal.
Two other females (cashiers ?) were hiding behind the bar counter. The owner and his mate were smoking and drinking at one of the high tables.
Naang's overweight son was roaming the place, not really a playground for children. I wonder what is going on in the head of such children when they see their mama going upstairs with a customer.
No other customers.
I was told that the price of a short-time room was 400 baht and FS 1,000 baht.
Bottled Heineken 90 baht, lady drinks 100 baht.
News from Ishi April 2016: Open
I heard the bar re-opened in January. I saw 4 ladies (one was attractive) and 1 mamasan outside, but nobody was inside the bar at 7:30pm on 1st April. Opens from 1pm to 11pm. All-in 1,400B.
News from Ishi and Dick Farang October 2015: Closed
The has been dark for a couple of weeks. Later a 'business for sale' sign appeared.
Review from Dick Farang, December 2014: Unloved
Venus Love Lounge on Third Road just north of Pattaya Klang seems to open intermittently.
Apparently they open at 2 p.m. and close early when they run out of girls .
When I arrived around 8 p.m. the bar was nearly deserted, no other customers.
A 30-year old girl from Ubon Ratchathani was not too unfriendly, but did not understand (let alone speak) a single word of English; perhaps she was farm fresh from the Thai karaoke circuit.
The new, ugly and not so young mamasan told me she had lived for two years in my home city and could even speak some words of Dutch, albeit hardly understandable.
When I put forward I did not see the beauties from their Facebook page, she tried to make me believe four better looking girls had been barfined and taken to some islands for a week.
Barfine ST 300 baht (room included), LT a steep 800 baht.
Bottled Heineken 90 baht, lady drinks 100 baht.
News from Dick Farang, September 2014: Closed
Venus Love Lounge on Third Road seems to be closed again, not really a surprise.
Review from Dick Farang, May 2014: Classically Ample Beauty
Yesterday I visited Venus Love Lounge. The exact location is on the eastside of Third Road, about 150 metres north of Pattaya Klang.
I appeared to be the only customer.
At the right side, in front of a stage with chrome poles, a bunch of fully clothed fatties were sitting; no bikinis or coyotes to be seen. There was also one old skinny girl, who seemed to know the ropes of begging for a lady drink.
The mamasan told me the younger ones were fresh from Isaan, they did not speak English, but had learnt the job in Thai karaokes. They all seemed to have big natural racks, but were still very shy.
The mamasan also told there are sometimes agency dancers.
Bottled Heineken was 90 baht, lady drinks 100 baht, bar fine (room included) 300 baht.
I doubt if they will be attracting plenty of business at their current location.
If you start from 2nd Road and run the Soi 6 gauntlet, then this is the first beer bar you see when reach the respite of Beach Road. Maybe the customers here just have a beer as a break before running the return leg. Nevertheless short time is still on
the mind and the girls in this bar are well supportive of such suggestions.
I have also used the bar as a meeting point with those residing in Soi 6 hotels who need a bar to buy a beer rather than select a short time girl friend.
There seems to be some confusion about the name of the short time bar at the Welkom Inn. The best bet is 'No Name Bar'. Hippo seems to be the name of a more conventional hotel bar/restaurant. Bottled beer at 75 Baht. Closed and demolished in 2015.
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.
