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.
Opened on 17th November 2013 and closed on 5th July 2016. Has now re-=opened presumably under new management on 3rd November 2016. Apparently after a dispute about using the name, Amethyst, the bar closed for renaming and became
Gold on 5th January 2017.
All in: typically 1300-1800 girls set their fee +300 BF
Review December 2017: Second dibs
A good fun, hands on, unzipped, anything goes bar that is also well cheaper than anything on Walking Street.
Of course there is the little snag that you are unlikely to find a girl who
could command a post on a Walking Street stage. And if you are lucky enough to find a young and slim dancer, you can be pretty sure that she wont be staying in Big Hugs long. Saying that there are usually (but not always) one or two who are attractive
enough to enjoy receiving their good close attention.
The same is exactly true of sister bar So Nice, but on the whole, So Nice seems to get first dibs for the available girls. One time I saw the girls in So nice draw lots with the loser having to
leave for Big Hugs to make up the numbers there.
Review from Teigen, February 2017: So Nice Big Hugs
Big Hugs and So Nice on Soi 13/1 are definitely connected and both are open from 2pm until
Bottled Heineken: 85, LD: 130, All-in (I asked): 1800 (just in case if you are drunk or crazy).
6 dancers here, 6 dancers there, topless (all) and bottomless (some), hands-on (that's if you dare).
News from Ishi, December 2016: Big Hugs
Las Vegas II was replaced by Big Hugs A-GoGo on 7th December 2016. Despite the name change the bar is still displaying for sale notices.
At an early evening
visit there were 4 naked dancers in the bar, of which one was on stage. Draught beer is 50B.
The nextdoor Champagne Coyote Bar has closed and the space has been merged into the Champagne GoGo.
Review from Dick Farang, January 2018: Full bodied
After a long while I revisited Champagne A-GoGo on Soi LK Metro.
The interior has not strikingly changed in the last two years, apart from the fact that Club Malibu has become a separate venue, Champagne
I noticed that on the central stage there are only three chrome poles, but they are swivelling and suitable for pole dancers.
The dancers were a forgettable bunch clad in a colourful mix of big tops, big bottoms, bras and strings, but mostly overdressed. Many of them were one kilo more and at least one of them looked pregnant.
After a short
unasked-for performance by two pole dancers, five or six topless fatties with big black bottoms went on stage. Not a pretty sight.
The shower cubicle was deserted.
The music was too loud with an unbearable
beat and the lighting was very poor, probably on purpose.
The best thing were the German erotic cartoons on one of the television screens.
Most of the clientele seemed to be English draught drinkers.
BEWARE: the waitresses are too lazy to bring back small change.
Bottled Heineken 130 baht.
Comment from Dave, March 2017: Flat
I popped into Champagne
Tuesday evening, a very forgettable experience.
Some very below average Coyote Dancers and terrible loud music. One to miss at the moment.
Review from Dick Farang, March 2016: Chubbily Bubbly
At Champagne A-GoGo on Soi LK Metro is a hole in the wall now towards a LOUNGE or VIP LOUNGE where Club Malibu used to be.
The central stage of the former Club Malibu has been replaced
by a smaller, round (unused) one and there is a pool table behind it. The bench seating of Club Malibu is still there, but it was deserted
In Champagne A-GoGo itself were three dancing teams of about ten mostly chubby to fat,
overdressed, double-topped and double-bottomed coyotes , some of them with ugly pot bellies and ugly tattoos. They stayed on stage for very long stints.
After a short pole-dance intermezzo most customers left.
I did not see the infamous elderly Nancy with the giant glasses, ridiculous silicone balloons and worn white net stockings, who had come from Kiss A-GoGo.
The only nudity I saw were the fatties soaping in the
shower cubicle and the erotic cartoons on the television screens.
A mediocre 23-year-old girl told her barfine was 1,200 baht and she wanted 2,000 baht ST and 4,000 baht LT, adding same Walking .
cute 24-year-old spinner from Surin said her barfine was 800 baht and she wanted 3,000 baht ST and 4,000 baht LT.
She was the only slim female I have seen there and she was a good girl , who did not drink alcohol, did not
smoke (in any sense of the word) and wanted to preserve her backdoor virginity.
She did not even push for a lady drink, which is why I finally paid her one. Pity she had such an ugly big tattoo on her small belly.
Many people, staff included, were smoking cigarettes and that caused a terrible stench.
Bottled Heineken 125 baht, lady drinks 150 baht.
Review from Dick Farang, July 2015: Hiding Tiers
Some people seem to be dreaming of Soi LK Metro as a second Walking Street...Not me.
I do not often go there, mainly because of the motorbikes parked everywhere around and the food carts and
the mobile shoe sellers, but more still for fear of being run over by a motorbike.
Champagne A-GoGo on Soi LK Metro is still a double shophouse and its neighbour Club Malibu, also a double shophouse, is still closed, but it does
have Champagne signs on its façade now.
The layout of Champagne A-GoGo is still basically the same: a (too) narrow central stage and double-tier bench seating on both sides.
I have never been a big fan of
double-tier bench seating: I feel uncomfortable on the upper benches and I feel uncomfortable on the lower benches.
The line of reasoning that it seats more customer bums cuts no ice: the punters are more spread and the empty
space, especially on the upper benches, serves as a hiding place for the girls.
During my visit there were lots of dancers and waitresses and about a dozen customers.
The dancers went on stage in
teams of ten. They were a mix of coyotes clad in denim outfits and girls in red bikinis in the most diverse shapes and sizes, with some huge tops and the bottoms varying from strings with a fantasy metal chain between the buttocks to old-fashioned
swimming trunks . Many of them were in their thirties and forties and average at best: ugly faces, ridiculous silicone balloons, nasty tattoos and lots of pot bellies.
I did not see topless dancers. The only nudity I saw
were a team of two naked dancers and the two or three girls soaping in a big elevated transparent box.
There was also a short act by a pole dance performer.
On the television screen Japanese adult cartoons
The girls at Champagne A-GoGo were not pushy at all for lady drinks. Perhaps they do not want to hassle expats and cheap charlies. In that case there must have been expats and cheap charlies only.
Bottled Heineken still 120 baht.
News from Dick Farang, March 2015: Plans
Rumour has it now that, by Songkran, Bob and his co-owners want to merge Champagne A-GoGo and
Club Malibu into a mega gogo.
Whereas a single-shophouse gogo, such as the defunct Submarine A-GoGo, is undeniably too narrow, I doubt if a quadruple-shophouse gogo is a good idea.
triple-shophouse gogos, such as Lady Love on Soi LK Metro and Private Dancer A-GoGo on Soi 15, it is difficult to have a good view of the other side.
Moreover, such a big gogo risks to look very empty.
March 2015: Double shift
The best earners of the recently closed Club Malibu have been transferred to Champagne which is now operating two shifts: one from 5 p.m. until midnight and another one from 8.30 p.m. until 3 a.m.
News August 2014: Afternoon opening ends
The military dictatorship has decreed that GoGos on Soi LK Metro cannot open until 6pm
News December 2013: Re-opened after renovation
Re-opened on 1st December but visited on the 2nd.
The bar now has one center stage with 7 poles. On the stage I saw 5 or 6 dancers who were topless, bikini and coyote.
The girls were from FunHouse, Crystal Club, Clinic and so
on. The topless dancer in Clinic changed to a coyote in Champagne.
The girls advance onstage by one dancer per song.
The bar doesn't have draught beer. Bottled beer and soft drinks are from 85B, lady drinks are 140B.
Soi LK Metro
Took over from Kiss A-GoGo on 28th September 2017. Sister bar to Khaos. On the 16th January 2018, the bar reverted to the old name Kiss A-GoGo .
Chaos A-GoGo became Kiss A-GoGo on 16th January 2018.
Review from Dick Farang, October 2017: Out of chaos comes ordinary
Soi LK Metro Chaos A-GoGo has opened at the previous location of Kiss A-GoGo.
The layout looks very cheap. On both sides of the central stage is spacious double-tier red bench seating. However, the benches are too high to be
comfortable and there are no footrests on the tables.
In the area right of the entrance, which can be curtained off, is a low square table with a chrome pole on it.
There was a team of five dancers in black
lingerie who took off their bras once on stage and there were about a dozen double-topped and double-bottomed coyotes in the most diverse outfits, some of them with camisoles.
Some of the females were average, but most of them
were sub-average and worse.
There were never more than three or four customers and nobody stayed long.
The way-too-loud music was some kind of crappy techno with the performers shown on a number of flat
BEWARE: some girls are not available; do not waste money on them.
Today I saw the movers who took out all the sofas. Hopefully some much needed renovation is going on,
and it's a only a temporary closure.
I was told a month. It was a goldmine in the past when the old mamasan was taking care of it, the bikers loved it. Some nudity on stage was the rule, but since then... only a bunch of those
clothed old fugglies.
IMHO, renovations won't do it without a complete staff change.
[Ed: Saying that, renovation maybe just a hope. It appears more likely to be a permanent closure].
Malcolm, September 2019: Minimalist
Called in Club Nevada on Soi Post Office a couple of days ago.
A grand total of 4 staff working. 1 cashier, 1 waitress and 2 girls dancing. I use the
word girls loosely as both looked in their late 30s.
They took turns in dancing. I was the only customer and the girl not dancing sat next me. Bought her a drink and she took her bra off to reveal a nice pair of naturals. Of
course as soon as the drink arrived she had to go dance.
Stayed for about half an hour and I was still the only customer when I left
Update from Tiegen, August 2019: Gone
All the dancers of the past...gone! Except 3, seriously fat, but with -covered- big boobs, for those who like it.
News from Tiegen, February 2019:
Mirror Mirror on the Wall
Mamasan Ann has left and all those names added for years on the wall mirrors have gone also! The mirrors are now shinning like new and it makes the place look bigger. The old bikers
pictures were removed and a touch of black paint applied on the ceiling. Don't know why they waited so long to do it, preparing for a business takeover maybe. They could at least bring back some nipples on stage, but it's not the case.
News from Tiegen, December 2017: Smart in red
Hard to believe but true! Brand new shinning red upholstering on all the seats since today.
Review from Dick Farang November 2017: No nudity
At Club Nevada, also on Soi Post Office, there is not the slightest nudity left (at least not on stage), but they do have some good-looking girls now.
Depending on the day of the week most of their dancers are clad in
white, red or black string bikinis now, but some of the oldies continue to wear transparent skirts, be it with underwear. I start to believe it is true those gogo girls are not so very often barfined.
At Club Nevada and at similar
places such as Passion Dance Club on Soi 6 the girls seem to remember with whom I have been upstairs several months ago.
At Club Nevada it happens that there are fewer girls than punters, but they have got a young and sexy mamasan
now, who would probably also make a good dancer.
Update from Teigen, August 2017: Higher
Club Nevada has now put an end to the cheap(est) GoGo lady drinks in town. From today the lady drinks have increased
from 100 to 130 Baht.
Update from Dick Farang, August 2017: Early closing
Club Nevada on Soi Post Office is still going strong but has now cut down its opening hours and now closes before midnight.
Update from Teigen, May 2017: In the spotlight
New spot lights are being installed at Nevada and they also started to peel off the names from the mirror walls.
The bar has announced that it is now under new management and that the bar will be re-launched with a party it calls Crystallisation
Review, September 2016: Waiting
I visited the Soi LK Metro venue at about 9pm on weekday evening. There was not really much going on at the time.
There were 4 or 5 girls dancing on the central stage mostly in coyote street wear, with just one in
a string bikini. The girls were attractive enough though. There was a second team of dancers, pretty much as the first team.
There were a few customers, of which two were chatting with dancers. The others were 'waiting for wonder' as one Pattaya
forum member eloquently puts it.
Draft beer was 69 Baht. And one glass was sufficient for the visit.
This was the last of the one drink GoGos on my pub crawl. I was 'wonder' struck in my next port of call, Pandora's, and I stayed there for
the rest of the evening.
Review from Dick Farang, January 2015: Recovered
Crystal Club on Soi LK Metro seems to have recovered from their all-time low last summer, but they do not yet reach
their pre-coup level.
I sat down at the right-hand side because I do not like the cramped double-tier seating on the left-hand side.
There were teams of six dancers on stage at any time.
About half of the dancers went topless and only two naked.
Once they left the stage they hurried to put their tops (and bottoms).
Some were slightly above average and some sub-average.
There were no coyotes left, but many dancers were wearing big pants.
The sex on the beach music was accompanied by a matching video on the six flat screens.
were not too many customers there was a persistent cigarette smoke stench.
Several of the staff were smoking cigarettes inside and not really interested in the customers; no reason to tip.
I popped into Crystal Club on Monday Night. It was very Good.
Lots of topless girls and one
was the prettiest Girl I've seen anywhere in Pattaya.
Review from Dick Farang, July 2014: Very Quiet
Crystal Club on Soi LK Metro has become very quiet: fewer staff and less than a handful of
There are still three teams of 7-8 dancers left now.
There is still a majority of bikini dancers, but many wear big tops and/or big bottoms.
The very fat mamasan does not
seem to care about their outfits.
The topless and naked dancers have disappeared.
The price of a bottled Heineken has gone up from 110 baht to 125 baht.
The military junta has now banned GoGos from
opening until 6pm.
Review, February 2014: Best quality crystal
For all the recent expansion on Soi LK Metro, originality hasn't been a major source of inspiration. I recently stopped by 3 new bars all with
more or less the same layout, namely Crystal, Funhouse, and Oscars.
All feature a long thin central stage surrounded by comfortable bench seating.
Crystal was easily the best of the bunch, and it was absolutely nothing to do with the
prettiness of the decor, nor really the attractiveness of the dancers.
It was that on the day I visited, the girls were simply being the most friendly. The dancers were scanning the audience for feedback, and then were circulating amongst the
customers when waiting their turn to dance.
Also Crystal did not seem so afflicted by coyotes as the other two.
And I don't think it was just me, the bar, was popular and most customers seemed to be generally enjoying the entertainment.
Review from Sedrik, July 2013: Second look
I visited at a peak time of 23h10 (and according to the bill, the 190th customer)
Of course, the bar no longer employs the
premium ladies like at the opening.
There were 18+ ladies, of which one was topless. All the others were coyote. They were not very friendly and some of the girls looked very bored.
The music mix (I didn't
see if there was a DJ or not) wasn't impressive.
Review from ishi, July 2013: First look
I saw almost 50 dancers in the bar (there were 49-51 dancers on the mamasan's board) in 5 teams but
Mamasan said We'll have some topless dancers and bottomless dancers in one month.
Bar Fines for all dancers (including coyotes) are 800 Baht till midnight, after midnight 600 Baht.
Draught beer was 60 Baht (It is 65 Baht officially) in happy hour.
Opened as a coyote bar on 16th March 2012. The bar adopted more revealing dress codes in mid 2013
and the bar is now qualified as a GoGo. Closed on 29th December. Re-opened as a coyote bar on 8th February 2014. Had a few topless girls a couple of weeks later
I stopped by the LK metro GoGo during a weekday Happy Hour.
First impressions were good with a sizeable staff ready to guide customers to the plentiful seating around the central
stage. The drinks service was prompt and polite.
The square bar has bench seating overlooking the stage which was occupied by 7 dancers. The dancers were wearing a wide variety of costumes with a black theme. The dress code ranged from
overdressed coyote to sheer negligee. There were several decent looking dancers amongst them.
A rather serious flaw started to emerge at the first dancing shift changeover. All the girls trooped off the stage and slowly a replacement crew appeared
in bits and drabs. However the new crew was pretty much the same as the previous set. It appears that there were 10 dancers total in the bar and 3 would take a break each shift.
The stage may look full, but this means that there were hardly any
girls available for hostess duties. You would have a double shift wait when your drinking partner 'go dance'.
Inevitably I decided to move on after my drink. But don't assume that this means that the bar is under the cosh. There are plenty of
GoGos on Soi LK Metro that are also 'one drink and move on' venues, so there is a steady stream of vaguely disappointed customers arriving after departing from these other bars.
Draft beer was 69 Baht
Review from Dave, June
I popped into Destiny in LK Metro on Saturday night,
There were 3 groups of 6 dancers, all topless, wearing black knickers, all attractive and only 1 fatty.
Not many punters, the staff were all friendly,
Music was ok, not too loud.
Review from Dick Farang, April 2015: Chaos
I visited Destiny on Soi LK
Metro only because I felt thirsty.
This double-shophouse gogo has a square layout with a (too) small central stage, red double-tier benches and some high tables with also red stools. The double-tier seating was not as comfortable
as it looked at first sight because there was not enough knee space.
The dancers were mostly clad in red and black, but there was not the slightest uniformity in their outfits: strings, double strings (!), big pants, coyotes,
bras, short T-shirts, camisoles, fishnet stockings with suspenders, fishnet stay-up stockings, fishnet tights -- you name it. It was a complete chaos, with a ch .
Some of them were topless and some dropped their tops after
a while on stage; no full nudity. There were dancers in all sizes, tall and short, fat and unhealthy skinny, ranging from 2 to 7. Some were cellulite bags and some had huge ugly tattoos on their bellies.
Music was too loud.
Bottled Heineken 120 baht.
News January 2015: Under new management
Stickman reports that Destiny has been sold and continues under new management.
Comment July 2014:
There are about 20 dancers arranged in 3 shifts, 2 of these are coyote and the other is a show with girls stripping from bikinis to nude.
The bar is advertising a low season promotion of all drink all night for 90 Baht.

News from Tiegen, February 2019: Mirror Mirror on the Wall
The workers are back, and I could see the stage re-installed and dancing poles on it, so maybe someday
Update from Teigen, August
Far East Rock has closed for 1 month for building work. The top floors of the building are being converted into hotel rooms. The GoGo area looks to be more destroyed than redeveloped causing a little doubt whether
it is destined to return. The building work was still continuing in February 2018.
Update from Teigen, October 2016: Strictly bikini
All-in is now 2000. There are only bikini girls, no nudity of any kind at
all (no full nudity seen there for many years).
The bar also has a brand new flashing and shining decoration on front of the club.
News from Dick Farang, August 2016: Afternoon opening resumes
recent police action to close GoGos before 6pm has fizzled out and the bar has resumed opening from 1pm.
Review April 2013: Refurbed
I stopped by on a weekend evening to take a look at the changes since a
The dynamic of the bar is very much the same as before, but the bar does look smarter for a general rework of the fittings.
The major change is to rework the bar counter at the back. The messy DJ area and boss's cubby hole is
now an area reclaimed to the bar. With the bar counter itself looking a lot more attractive. This back right area seems more for the Scandinavian regulars than for customers dropping by. It does not really command a good view of the stage so is probably
best used as a hangout area.
There were 9 dancers in the bar when I visited with 3 on stage at any one time. This was a good ratio which left plenty of girls able to work the bar for lady drinks. There were 3 quite attractive girls and it was
generally a decent line up for the bars in the Sois 13 area. Topless was the majority favoured dress code for the dancers.
There were a decent smattering of customers, and most had a lady by their side (or on their lap). It is probably the least
hands-on bar of the local area but the hostessing was working OK anyway.
So very much as before, but looks a little nicer.
News April 2013: Builders
Far East Rock closed for renovation. It re-opened
pretty much as before but with black paint and lightened by a few blue garlands.
Review from Malcolm, January 2012: Totally Different
Called in Far East Rock today on Soi 13/2. Totally
different from my last visit in May.
The bar had just opened and some strange ritual. Going in which all the staff banged an ashtray or drink bin on a table or the edge of the stage whilst a naked girl ran around the bar about 3
times with a glass of something and dabbed some of the liquid on the other girls hands and all the tables. This ritual ended with the girl sticking her bare arse out of the door curtain and emptying the glass between her legs into the street. Ritual over
back to normal.
8 girls on duty, all half decent, 3 dancing. Called one girl over to sit with me and had a pleasant 20 mins with her till she had to go dance.
Draught beer 60B. Lady drink 110B.
As I said last time I was there it must have been a bad day
Afternoon gogo catering for expats into rock music. The original bar closed in
August 2017, nominally with plans to return after redevelopment. However development was slow and the owners have found a new location.
I stopped by for my first visit to this bar in the late afternoon.
It is quite a well laid out bar with mostly bench seating around three sides of the central stage. It
definitely looked the part for an afternoon GoGo but was perhaps in a little better nick than the others. The stage is a little too high though, and the dancers' faces get lost in the distance.
The GoGo was quite popular compared with other
afternoon venues. There were about 8 dancers, 2 waitresses and about half a dozen customers.
There were 2 or 3 decent looking dancers in the team and the rest weren't putting customers off either.
Far East Rock is never the most interactive
of the Soi 13 venues. The girls seemed more interested in the gossip of their little huddle than bothering much with the customers. There was once dancer sitting with customers and one of the waitresses was also doing good work taking care of a customer.
OMG changed hands and became Fun Seeker Dance Club in early October 2012. The venue originally became a GoGo as Betty Boup Dance Club. The bar became Wantanna's in August 2012 but had failed by April 2011 and
gave way to OMG. Became Fun Seeker in October 2012. Closed in August 2014 and is now Darts 2 Live.
Amethyst re-opened presumably under new management on 3rd November 2016. Apparently after
a dispute about using the name, Amethyst, the bar closed for renaming and re-opened on 20th January 2017. Closed and up for sale in June 2017. The bar re-opened under new management on 22nd November 2017 but closed again on 24th December 2017.
2nd Road (in Smile's
Avenue bar complex opposite Mike's Shopping Mall)
Previously a coyote bar it changed to the GoGo format in November 2009. May claim to be a GoGo bar but the girls were wearing too many clothes to count. Now listed on the
Bars pages . Closed in June 2010.
Converted from coyote dancing to GoGo dancing on 1st December 2008 but didn't last long before reverting back to a bar. The venue was previously Gorkle Club, and before that Memories A-GoGo. Now Office A-GoGo.
Review from Dick Farang, December 2016: Kaotic dresss code
At Kaos A-GoGo on Soi LK Metro nothing has improved.
The dancers seemed to be wearing as much as they liked and as ugly as
On average their quality was even inferior to these at the latest version of Pandora's, also on Soi LK Metro.
To my surprise five of them went topless, but they kept their huge double bottoms.
The music was Thai crap from YouTube.
There were not many customers, but nevertheless there was a disgusting cigarette smoke stench.
Bottled Heineken 130 baht now, lady drinks 180
(!) baht now, small buckets with ping-pong balls 250 baht.
Review from Dick Farang, March 2015: Opening Kaos
Kaos A-GoGo has opened on Soi LK Metro at the previous location of the Belgian bar
Mai Lu Si.
Unsurprisingly for those who follow internet forums it was very cramped with a cheap layout. The floor, walls, ceiling and bench seating on both sides were black with mirrors above the benches. The stages were white
plastic boxes each with a pole of about 1.80 metres on them.
Two or three dancers were in white underwear, the others in white coyote outfits, sometimes combined with a white camisole. The average quality of the girls was very
low, varying from 0 to 6 with the majority towards the bottom of that scale. I really had pity on the ugliest ones among them. I would not be surprised if some had come from the defunct Pe Pé Club A-GoGo.
Rumour has it on internet forums that this gogo was already for sale at 4 million baht even before it actually opened. That being said, Showgirls Entertainment Centre, also on Soi LK Metro, seems to be for sale at 55 million baht. I
fear that there will always be buyers with more money than brains.
Bottled Heineken at Kaos A-GoGo was 120 baht, not the budget price of 100 baht as promised on internet forums.
I popped into the new Kiss a-go-go in L K Metro on Sunday night.
Out goes the Bench Seating, Table top Dancers and the Rock Music, and
in Comes a Central Stage and Boom Boom Music. Does this sound familiar?
The Central Stage was very odd and only had Room for 4 Girls. The Girls were a mix of Coyote, Bikini and Topless Dancers. Most of them were below average and
There was nothing that would make me want to return,
Kiss is 3 times bigger than Sweet hearts but the Designer obviously did not look at other a-go-go'
News from Ishi,
January 2018: Re-named
Chaos A-GoGo became Kiss A-GoGo on 16th January 2018.
Review from Dick Farang, October 2017: Out of chaos comes ordinary
On Soi LK Metro Chaos
A-GoGo has opened at the previous location of Kiss A-GoGo.
The layout looks very cheap. On both sides of the central stage is spacious double-tier red bench seating. However, the benches are too high to be comfortable and there
are no footrests on the tables.
In the area right of the entrance, which can be curtained off, is a low square table with a chrome pole on it.
There was a team of five dancers in black lingerie who took off
their bras once on stage and there were about a dozen double-topped and double-bottomed coyotes in the most diverse outfits, some of them with camisoles.
Some of the females were average, but most of them were sub-average and
There were never more than three or four customers and nobody stayed long.
The way-too-loud music was some kind of crappy techno with the performers shown on a number of flat screens.
BEWARE: some girls are not available; do not waste money on them.
Takeaway: 2000 agency, before 12 1500 agency after 12 1000 topless, shower 800 coyote dancers 700 bikini dancers
Review, November 2017: The lady loves...lots of clothes
The bar seems to get good reports on the internet forums so I thought I would take a look. Unfortunately all I saw was a stage full of coyotes. Not my cup of tea either,
so I'll leave the reviewing to those more discerning of overpriced and overdressed dancers.
There was a naked girl soaping herself down at the far side of the bar though.
Review from Dave, April 2017: Not my cup of tea
I popped into Lady Love on LK Metro on a Wednesday evening.
It had very loud music, which I did not like.
The main stage had 6 topless mature dancers, with very large
silicone breasts. They were followed by 6 Coyote Dancers. The small stage had a very nice nude blonde.
The Draft Beer was very nice, 75 Baht for a half pint.
The place was quite busy but not my cup of tea.
Review from Dave, June 2015: A good atmosphere
I popped into Lady Love, soi LK Metro on Saturday evening.
There were topless and coyote dancers, mostly attractive.
There were Naked Girls in the bath, who were also attractive.
The music was ok and a good atmosphere.
Review from Dick Farang, November 2014: Pretty Soapy
Lady Love is located on Soi LK Metro at the previous locations of the Swedish restaurant Krogen (Swedish for The Pub) and of the Swedish bar Bolaget (Swedish for The Company).
It is a broad gogo
that occupies three units. In the left unit (where Krogen used to be) are a soaping stage and a shower with seating around.
In the two right units (where Bolaget used to be) are a rather de-central stage and two tiers
Between the soaping stage and the main stage are some high tables with bar stools.
Two of the three soaping girls were really beautiful (something becoming scarce
nowadays) and one of them got promptly barfined. Although they were completely naked the soaping girls only soaped their body from the waist down, with special attention for the intimate parts.
On the main stage I saw
two teams of five sub-average coyotes and one team of six slightly better looking topless girls in strings.
The staff were not pushy at all.
There were several other customers, among
them some bell-ringers.
Bottled Heineken 125 baht, during happy hour 75 baht.
The management has announced that the bar no longer employs agency dancers.
Review March 2013: Unloved
I stopped by in early evening and it was a totally
There were 3 other customers in the bar and 4 girls dancing on the centre stage. All the girls were coyotes in tiny shorts and solid bras. They were about average with one girl that stood out from the crowd. At the end of
a few songs a second team of 4 more coyotes took the stage. However the pretty girl didn't hang round to work the audience, she changed up and took up her post outside as door bait.
There girls seemed friendly enough with a few smiles from the
stage and a couple trying their luck for a lady drink with customers.
Happy hour drinks were reasonable at 75 Baht, which was a good job, as any more than that would have been very poor value for money.
Average girls, not hands on, no show,
News January 2013: Early Opening
The bar has introduced early opening at 4pm. There is also now a happy hour until 9pm when bottled beers and house spirits are 75 Baht.
Summary Review December 2012: Mostly Agency Coyotes
There's a central main stage with a particular note that there are no mirrors in bar to occupy the attention of the dancers. There are other smaller stages too and a
There seem to be about 20 coyote dancers on hand. With several comments that they are not really keen on the barfine stuff. As a quid pro quo, they don't seem to working to a drinks quota so can be more relaxed about demanding lady drinks
than in other bars.
There Jacuzzi girls are naked so the bar just about qualifies as a GoGo.
Of all the afternoon GoGos, Miami is managed most like a nightime venue.
There's still no sign of any nudity, and with several well overweight older dancers, few customers would want to
see more. However the bar also employs a couple of decent looking coyotes, probably from the usual agency sources. But this comes at the cost of being well overdressed.
The mamasang is pretty pro-active in ensuring that customers are quickly
allocated to dancers should they so desire.
I chatted to a keen and pretty coyote who was happy to explore the more hands on style of the afternoon gogos but was obviously a little inexperienced.
The bar offers competitive prices to the
other daytime gogos on sois 13.
I've been in a couple of times but never quite clicked, I think it either has to be a bit nuder or a bit seedier to chime with Pattaya afternooners.
Comment from Dick Farang November 2017: No
At Miami A-GoGo on Soi Post Office all fatties used to be always naked too, on and off stage, but they have changed their attire to yellow string bikinis now because police check.
Review from Dick Farang,
September 2016: Burkinis
Miami A-GoGo now probably has the biggest (pun intended) collection of fat fuglies, old ones, but also some younger ones. One of them was really colossal. I was surprised the stage did
Most of them were naked (or in string bikinis that were easily removed) and would probably have looked better in burkas.
They were not shy at all and for a little tip they wanted punters
shoving their middle fingers into their cunts and arses, some of them would even suck those middle fingers to clean them.
I did not kiss those girls.
The ladyboys appear to have gone.
Bottled Heineken still 110 baht, lots of 20-baht notes needed.
News from Dick Farang, August 2016: Afternoon opening resumes
The recent police action to close GoGos before 6pm has fizzled
out and the bar has resumed opening from 1pm.
Review from Dick Farang, August 2016: Bikinis and Burkas
At my latest visit to Miami A-GoGo on Soi Post Office (Soi 13/2) I saw six ugly fatties
between twenty and fifty years old in string bikinis; no ladyboys this time.
Review July 2016: Sad times
I stopped by Miami A-GoGo on Soi Post Office during the afternoon just before Pattaya police ordered an
end to afternoon GoGos.
There were 8 girls in the bar of which 3 were dancing in bikinis or topless. There were a couple of horrors, and a couple of decent girls.
But despite limited assets, the bar was doing quite nicely thank you. The
staff were proactively getting the girls to sit with, (or on), the customers, and the girls attentions were seemingly going down well. There was a steady flow of customers, and each would end up staying for a couple of drinks and a couple of lady drinks.
(I didn't see many barfines being paid though).
The staff were doing a good job keeping things ticking over. There was a cheap draft beer and lady drinks were 130 Baht.
It seems a bit of a shame that the authorities have felt it necessary
to snuff the afternoon GoGos on Soi Post Office and Soi Yamato. I think they stand no chance if they can only open after 6pm.
Their modest offerings probably only work during the hours when Walking Street GoGos are not yet open. The brutal truth
is that these GoGos do not really compare with those on Walking Street and these are only a short stroll away. Soi Post Office/Yamato GoGos simply will not be able to compete with Walking Street during evening hours.
Normally with police
crackdowns one can be sure that they will prove short lived, however a similar prohibition on Soi LK Metro GoGos opening in the afternoon has more or less become permanent.
i enjoyed my afternoon visit and feel sad that niche markets should be
suffocated by arbitrary decisions by the authorities. They are not doing any harm to anybody by opening in the afternoons.

It was a very pleasant experience. The place was very lively with a good atmosphere and some
very beautiful and friendly girls. No nudity but very sexy girls.
Well worth a visit.
Review from Dick Farang, November 2015: Ear Clapped
On Soi LK Metro at the
previous location of a Japanese-styled karaoke, opposite Crystal Club and between Queen Club and Showgirls Entertainment Centre, one more would-be gogo has opened: Ninja A-GoGo.
It is a double-unit shophouse with
single-tier bench seating on the right-hand side and double-tier bench seating on the left-hand side. The seating is less cramped than at other gogos in the area such as Champagne A-GoGo.
In the middle is a rather broad stage with
a total of eight chrome poles.
The dancers went on stage for very long dance stints in teams of five to seven. I saw one topless dancer and two bikini dancers; all the others were overdressed coyotes. Most of them seemed to be in
the 30-35 age bracket and were average looking at best.
Although they had opened only a couple of days before, it was all but crowded and nobody stayed long.
Not the slightest begging for lady drinks.
I got a terrible headache from the deafening music and tears in my eyes from the cigarette smoke.
It may sound strange, but at several occasions I have detected a foul cigarette smoke smell in very recently
Opened on 17th August 2010 in the venue that was previously
Ice Bar, Gorkle & Memories. Changed hands in April 2019 and re-opened as The Office Club on 10th May 2019. It didn't last long and became Friends nightclub in November 2019.
GoGo took over from Wanthana's in early April 2011. Ownership connections with O Bar and O2 Bar on the same soi. The bar changed
hands and became Fun Seeker Dance Club in early October 2012. Now a darts pub.
Look out for frequent special days, eg when lady drinks are 99 Baht all night.
Review January 2020: Probability
I stopped by Pandora's, one of my favourite GoGos. It wasn't the greatest line up
and there weren't many familiar faces from my last report 3 months ago. Still a few dancers you'd like to share a few drinks with though.
The girl I selected was a new recruit on her first day, though she told me she had previously worked at the
bar some years ago. She clearly wasn't yet fully immersed in the feel of the bar so I only stayed for a couple of always reasonably priced drinks.
I spent a dance rotation philosophising about the merits of a bar. Most of the good experiences are
really down to how you click with your drinking partner. The decor of the bar, drinks prices, music choice etc become secondary to the enjoyment of interaction with the girl.
It was my conclusion that good bar policies increase the probability of
a good experience but there are no guarantees. A poor bar has a poor probability of good time but one can still strike lucky.
So it is my observation that Pandora's offers a good bet, but in this case my selection fell a the first fence. I expect
a winner next time though.
Review September 2019: A box of delights
Pandora's was on good form on a recent weekday visit. The rather excellent offers of very cheap beer during Happy Hour are still continuing.
The staff point out the options and make sure that you get the best deal available. They also make a point of letting you know when Happy Hour is about to end so that you can get in another at the better price.
There were 9 dancers organised in
three 20 minute shifts with 3 on stage at a time. Each shift had one or two topless dancers. Perhaps not a top notch line up but it definitely featured a few attractive girls. On my last visit there were 2 shifts of 5 dancers. I think the 3 times 3 is
But where the bar scores highly is its friendly touchy feely approach to looking after customers. I was lucky enough to be entertained by a delightful girl with a very genuinely smiley persona. I didn't spot anything too outrageous going
on in the bar but I have heard tales.
Time flew by and I abandoned ideas of popping into other Soi LK Metro bars. A very good evening so thanks to Ricky and his dancers.
Review January 2019: Christmas Box
Popped into Pandora's Box, first it's small but with very Comfortable seating. There were 4 Girls on Stage and about 10 altogether, most of them attractive. Some Topless and 1 nude. Very friendly place with waitress from
Private Dancer. Good Draft Beer at 75 b and Lady Drinks 150b. Well worth a visit,
Review July 2017: Early birds
Is it just me, or is the banking business in Pattaya on the decline? Perhaps
its something to do with apps and smart phones. Whatever the reason, my bank has decided to shorten its opening hours and I ended up starting my evening's prowl a little earlier than I would have liked.
After wasting time on a
beer in Club Nevada I headed over to the early opening bars in Soi LK Metro, and the most promising was Pandora's.
The happy hour price on a bottled beer is a remarkably cheap 45 Baht, and the bar was already getting quite full,
perhaps more to do with a lot of girls occupying seats, rather than an extraordinary amount of customers.
There were 3 teams of girls dancing for about 4 songs a shift. There were 6 girls on stage at a time, and they were all
dancing in bikinis or less. There where several good looking girls, and none who were particularly old or fat.
The girls were being instructed to sit with customers rather than seeking out their own choices, but at least it meant
that there was plenty of social interaction going down. Saying that there wasn't much of the hands on stuff happening, maybe happy hour is a little early for that, a few drinks have to slip down first.
All in all it seemed
livelier than most bars at an early hour, but I departed noting to myself to visit a little later next time.
Comment from Dave, March 2017: Interrupting a wake
I popped into Pandora's in L K Metro on Tuesday.
There were 5 or 6 attractive girls outside, inside I felt I'd interrupted a wake. There were 5 extremely average Coyote Dancers on stage and a few prettier girls sitting around. No action, no atmosphere.
from Dick Farang, May 2016: Hands on
Pandors, or whatever the name may be, on Soi LK Metro has become a gogo.
The main colours of the interior are still beige and black.
On the left-hand side is a narrow stage with four chrome poles and two chrome gym rings.
On the right-hand side is cramped double-tier seating.
The dress code consisted of a tiny black
bra, a white string and a white pleated skirt that was not even half the length of what I have recently seen at the new Beach Club.
Thanks to the Velcro fasteners the skirts came off easily and of each team of six or seven dancers
two were performing in their birthday suits.
Most girls were average at best and from chubby to fat, but they were a friendly bunch.
Several of them had, after a career on Soi 7, tried their luck at Bliss
on Walking Street but had been laid off.
Many of them, but not all, were not shy at all and very hands on for a small tip.
A couple of 20-baht notes goes a long way at Pandors.
Bottled Heineken 120 baht, down from 130 baht at the previous incarnation.
It was very lively with 6 Topless Dancers on Stage. When the Girls changed over there were another 6 Topless Girls, not the best bunch I have seen. Later 10 of the Girls
came back on Stage naked.
Review from Dave, December 2017: A danger to shipping
Some lovely Girl's in there as good as any in Walking Street. Nearly all the Girl's were Topless and just
wearing a G-string. There was a blonde called Na. I'm not saying her tit's were big but they were a danger to shipping ,when she was dancing on stage.
There were 16 punters in, but Paul and I were the only ones buying lady drinks.
This is the same wherever we go. I gave a 100 Baht tip to a stunning teenage blonde on the way out.
Review, November 2017: Worth a beer
There were about 10 girls on stage at a time, organised in 2 teams. Each
team consisted of about 5 topless dancers and 5 in string bikinis. There were some attractive girls in the line up.
At an earlyish hour there wasn't anything happening in the bar offstage, with most of the non-dancing girls staying in the dressing
Review from Dave, October 2017: Topless and Toppling
I popped into the Paradise A-go-go in L K Metro on Friday night. It was a very pleasant experience.
Most of the Girls were wearing G-strings only. some nice Girls on show. The Mamasang introduced me to a new Girl, a 19 yr old topless Stunner. There was an older Girl, whose silicone Boob's were so big I thought she was going to topple over the edge of the Stage.
Good music, not too loud. Well worth a visit.
Review from Dave, April 2017: Lively

was very lively with a good atmosphere. Everyone was having a good time.
There was a good selection of bikini and topless girls.
The music and draft beer were good.

I popped into Paradise club on Saturday night, it was very quiet.
topless girls but there is no interaction between punters and girls unless the girls know you. So no atmosphere.
The bar has been dark for a few days, probably from the start of the month.
Review from Dick Farang, October 2017: Upbeat
On Soi LK Metro
Pulse A-GoGo has opened opposite Touch at the location that once was Armageddon Bar.
It has taken a long time before they finally opened, but the end result must be seen. It is the finest and most originally laid-out gogo I have
seen in many years. Only SkyFall A-GoGo on Walking Street comes nearby.
Perhaps we can call Pulse A-GoGo a very much improved version of Touch across the street.
Their main theme I would call medical
emergency and their main colour tones are white (or beige) and red. Across the white front door is the word AMBULANCE.
On the red zigzag-shaped central stage are six about 1.80 metres high chrome poles and two chrome rails. On
both sides is spacious white double-tier bench seating.
At the rear right is a (still unused) jacuzzi with a washing platform and a comfortable white settee behind it. There are several more white sofas, white chairs with arm
rests and white bar stools with arm rests.
There were not too many dancers at Pulse A-GoGo (a team of six and a team of seven), but they were top notch compared to what I have seen at recent openings of gogos.
About half of them were clad in string bikinis with spaghetti bras, white with Red Crosses at strategic places or red with white Swiss crosses, several of them also with white fishnet stockings with suspenders. (For those who do not know what suspenders
are, I add this funny picture.) The chubbiest of these bikini dancers revealed her huge boobs on stage.
The other half where coyotes in big white tops with sleeves and in white shorts with red belts or in white skirts, most of
them with white lace knee-high socks. The team changes went a bit chaotic.
The waitresses were friendly enough.
The lighting was adequate and the music was a bit loud, but not as bad as at most places.
Nice separate toilets.
Pulse A-GoGo was not really crowded, but I think, if they can attract more quality girls, the punters will follow.
A very enjoyable experience.
I wonder what Sapphire Addict Dave will have to say this time.
Bottled Heineken 130 baht, a very reasonable price for the kind of venue.
Pattaya Soi 13/1 (Soi Yamato)
Bar introduced GoGo dancing since 24th March 2016. But there was no sign of any dancing in May 2018 so listing moved to the bar list. Later
closed and became Secret.
Takeaway: showgirls 2500 dancers 1500 after 12 1000
Review from Dick Farang, June 2016: Iron Queen
Queen Club on Soi LK Metro is a place where I had never been back since shortly after its opening.
The first thing that struck me was how
spacious ... and how empty it was.
Two smaller stages, one of them previously a jacuzzi if my memory serves me well, remained unused.
On the central stage were seven to eight dancers clad in black. One team
were females of thirty years up, very average and mostly in strings and big bras. The other team were oldies, some of them going topless. The combination of worn bosoms and silicone balloons was not a pleasant sight. One of the silicone fuglies was
wearing a black string with the word Iron on it, apparently showing where she had come from.
I did not see any shows .
The music was so loud it made my chest vibrate.
Bottled Heineken 145 baht, a bit over the top for the area.
News April 2014: Shows
Queen Club seems to be re-inventing itself as a show bar with choreographed shows featuring a spectacular pole dancing display.
Review from Billy Baht, January 2013:
Compliments to Queen's management
I was enticed in by the 60 baht Draft beer sign. Yeah I like a bargain
Staff is efficient, quickly finding you a seat and taking your order. The draft
beer was a large mug and tasted great (sorry I forget which brand it was)
Now for the good part- the girls were really dancing, some great moves and making eye contact with the customers like they actually enjoyed working there!
One little spinner in particular had fantastic timing and she moved so well that I would go back just to watch her, she was that good! Then there was a show, a tallish Thai girl that did an acrobatic show on the chrome pole that seemed to defy gravity.
She clutched the pole with leg and or arm pressure and her gig was nothing short of amazing. I heard several Blood helly! comments from the crowd.
I have no idea about take away or ladydrink prices, but the eye candy was to
my taste- free!
Compliments to Queen's management
Review, June 2012: A bit of Walking Street on Soi LK Metro
I stopped by at about 10pm on a weekday evening.
The bar is
immediately impressive as a large, stylish bar, designed as per several of the newer Walking Street GoGos. It is as large as a GoGo can be with a fashionable long and narrow central stage.
There is bench seating down the sides. There's also a
small stage with over dressed girls and a Jacuzzi with under dressed girls.
The central stage was crammed quite full with dancers. There were two basic teams, one in bikinis (not a single girl dancing topless) and these were switching with a team
of over dressed coyotes.
There are also shows which seem to have impressed with pole acrobatics for one show and the girls getting naked in another show.
There were plenty of girls being interactive. I was approached by a knowledgeable girl
who I first met years ago in Ark A-Gogo (before it got flooded out). We had a good chat but she was a bit hardened in the lady drink demands department.
Actually this was maybe as you would expect from a Walking Street GoGo like Iron being cloned
in LK Metro.
The drinks prices are well set for the bar to muscle in on the existing LK Metro trade. The quality of the shows and generally attractive girls will also shake up the local competition.
On the other hand it was all a bit let
down by the excess of clothing and perhaps a feeling that it will attract slightly harder and pricier girls.
Review from Durian Doug, June 2012: Grand Opening
I visited Queen Club's Grand Opening on June 2 at
9:30 pm for about 2 hours.
As you enter the club:
it has one long stage with 6 dancing poles and was occupied by 2-3 topless ladies followed by 4-6 coyote bikini clad dancers
at the front left side of the club, there is a table dancing area with 1-2 coyote dancers (occasionally topless)
at the back left is a jacuzzi occupied by 1-3 naked girls, offering hands-on audience participation
costumed ladies descend from the second floor down a pole one at a time, usually ending up topless & lesbian.
gymnastics shows featuring 1 or 2 ladies doing horizontal pole dancing
lesbian shows using rings above the
bottled beer from 100 Baht
all ladies drinks 125 Baht
The Queen Club has the same owners as the Iron Club on Walking Street and offers great entertainment value.
It has set a new standard for agogo bars around Soi LK Metro as well as many on Walking Street.
Review from Durian Doug, May 2012: Horizontal pole dancing
I visited Queen Club on May 27 at 10:30 pm for
about 1 hour.
Queen Club Agogo is directly opposite Office A-GoGo and officially opens June 2.
It has a long stage with two tall poles and four of standard height. The stage normally has 5 - 6 coyote dancers.
There was a gymnastic
show (11pm) featuring two different acrobatic ladies, dressed in bikinis, doing what I call horizontal pole dancing. The second lady ended up topless. Quite impressive and probably from the Iron Club.
Small gogo bar opened as Blue Angel in June 2007. Became Sexy A-GoGo on 2nd Feb 2008.
Ownership connections with Kiss and Far East Rock. Intermittent opening since December 2011 and finally closed in August 2014. Now converted to a massage parlour, Good Luck Massage.
The GoGo was reported dark on the 11th December but re-opened on 22nd December
Review from Dick Farang, January 2017: Singin' the same old song
Sexy Girls A-GoGo on Soi 8 not much has changed.
Albeit a tad too loud, the rock, pop and country music has come back with songs such as Rhinestone Cowboy
The dancers were clad in red bikinis or topless in red strings.
Apart from one half-decent girl in a red string and a much too big bra, all the others were fat/fatter/fattest and ugly/uglier/ugliest.
The naked jacuzzi girl was on the chubby side, but not so in the "upstairs department". She had several tattoos, among them a pistol pointing at her private parts.
Four or five other customers.
BEWARE: "automatic tipping", i.e. small change is not returned spontaneously.
Bottled Heineken 130 baht now, up from 120 baht.
Review from Dick Farang, November 2014: Red
Sexy Girls A-GoGo on Soi 8 seems to have changed hands. Anyway, I did not see and hear the (previous) noisy owner.
At first sight the interior had remained unchanged, but the jacuzzi
and the fireman's pole seemed to have been kept for decoration only.
When I saw the dancers I could hardly believe my eyes. There were about a dozen of them, varying from fat to very fat. They were clad in red skirts with
broad white elastics. Half of them were topless and the other half were wearing red-and-white sailor-style tops. Three to five of them were on stage at any time.
There were also a waitress and a gay waiter, but I did not see a
The music was blaring, no more 1960ies, 1970ies and 1980ies.

Bottled Heineken 120
Review January 2012: Show her the brass, and the brass rubbing will follow
Well what can I say, I've tried all the go go bars in Soi 7/8 but always go back to this little haven...
The music is quite
good, but who give a monkey's about music when its well stocked full of eye candy, I have found the staff to be helpful and courteous.
Well I usually stay in the hotel opposite for a couple of night at the start of my stay, Eastiny Palace, you
have to pay a fine to take your little Thai darling back, but its a good clean hotel. Its my personnel choice...
Anyway where was I.... Yes I've used this establishment for 3 or 4 years and is usually great, I've taken many a little flower out of
this place back to my honeymoon suite opposite.
To be honest I don't notice the prices, maybe am a champagne Charlie, like I give a dam. I've taken many of my friends to his place and never heard of anybody complain of the prices.
with this place is to splash a little cash at first, you know the old Thai motto, no money, no honey . Then when you have you little Thai darling of you choice, you ask to take her up stairs to the pool bar up stairs. I like this spot because its
nice and quiet and you can get a good oggle at the birds before they slide down the fireman's pole and start their shift...
Ohh, small word of warning, on my last trip to this establishment, my friend, Kenny Wenny , nearly fell down the
fireman's pole whilst throwing ping pong balls to the ladies down stairs.
The last time I was in I was already with my Thai girlfriend of 6 years, she bats both ways, so she made her choice and the 3 of us went back to the honeymoon suite and we
spent the rest of the night looking at my vast stamp collection. The next morning we spent that brass rubbing..... It was nice to watch our little friend doing a Bambi out the door, I think the brass rubbing wore her out.
Sexy Girls A-GoGo has proven disappointing over the last couple of visits.
The previously reported issue of too many girls dancing too long still exists but on my last visits the girls were all wearing too
many clothes too.
This seems now seems to be one of those gogos modelled on Happy. The girls dance for ages and the customers sit alone, sipping profitable drinks, whilst waiting for wonder.
But the Happy model rather requires top notch girls to
make it all work. Sexy Girls does have a good share of attractive girls, but not quite good enough to make up for the overdressing and lack of opportunity for good personal customer care.
There are a couple of naked girls who work the Jacuzzi but it
doesn't really make up for the rather underwhelming customer experience.
Review December 2010: Dance Too Long
Sexy Girls A-GoGo has got a fair bit going for it. In particular, it has a
fair few decent looking girls, especially for a small bar.
There's also a Jacuzzi with the usual naked soapers, and the bar is now quite spacious. There is a reasonably priced draft beer and a good service team.
The only real downer is that the
girls are set on a ludicrously long dancing spell over the course of a two level stage. I do not really know what the top level is in aid of, it is too high to provide much point to downstairs viewers.
And because there are too many dancers packed on
the stage, there aren't really enough left over for hostessing duties. So the likelihood is too high of a lonely drink whilst 'waiting for wonder'.
A bit of a shame really as the girls are quite friendly in the short time they have available for
Soi Leng Kee
GoGo opened on 3rd December 2015. Closed almost immediately as it was not possible to get a GoGo licence at that

A very busy gogo with a very good dancing roster. There were 20+ very good looking ladies on duty.

Review March 2013: Fun and
I dropped by to see the daytime shift, immediately after visiting the drear Lady Love.
And what a difference. Showgirls was about half full with customers, not bad for the early hour.
The layout of the
bar is very cluttered and the extensive mirror wall adds to the visual confusion. However this doesn't nothing to harm the fun filled atmosphere. The mirrors reminded me of a fairground maze, all it needs is a little optical distortion.
was occupied by a cast of coyotes that were generally smiling, checking out the audience, and interacting with some of the stage side customers.
After a certain number of songs, there was a full change of dancing team. A full crew of topless girls
took over the entertainment.
Meanwhile there was a group of guys in the back left corner of the bar who were monopolising the available hostesses. They were clearly having fun and with the girls perched on their laps.
There were also
dancers doing good hostessing work amongst the customers in the stage side comfy seats.
The bar could have done with a few more girls to keep even more of the customers happy, but the overall atmosphere was definitely that of customers and girls
enjoying a good time.

On Soi 8 Silver Star A-GoGo is still dark, after the high profile police raid that heralded the start of the current morality crusade. Meanwhile at Silver Star 2 A-GoGo on Soi 7 it is
still business as usual, be it with less (official) nudity. It was a weird sight, a jacuzzi girl showering in a black bikini.
That being said, all girls were still eager to reveal their secrets for a 20-baht note.
From time to time the lights dimmed and the front door was locked for a show of the sweethearts in their birthday suits.
Bottled Heineken still 130 baht.
Review from Dave, December 2014: Well worth a visit.
I popped into Silver Star 2 on Monday night.
It was very lively. There were 10 virtually naked girls on stage, and 2 naked girls in the bath tub,
The standard of girl
was not as high as on previous visits, but there were some pretty ones, and all hands on fun was happening.
All staff were very friendly. Well worth a visit.
Lady Drinks were 125 and draft beer 72 (half
Review March 2013: Beyond Expectations
I stopped by perhaps a little too early on a Sunday evening.
There were 6 girls on stage at the time. There were some very attractive girls in the team, way
beyond expectations of a Soi 7/8 GoGo. The girls were also very revealingly costumed in a little skirt affair that covered nothing.
Far better than many GoGos, particularly those relying on overdressed agency coyotes.
were not many dancers left over for customer interaction duties, so not really worthwhile hanging out too long. A helpful service girl suggested that more girls will arrive later on. But I am a bit of sceptic. If one tries later on, then there are still
likely to be few girls. Equally helpful service staff will then claim that many girls have been barfined already!
But nevertheless an attractive proposition for a couple of beers.
Review April 2011: Busy
Silver Star 2 is still the pick of the Soi 7/8 gogos.
The momentum of success ensures that the bar can employ a stage full of stage full of attractive dancers in various stages of undress. The dancers rotate one place
per song and it can be quite a long wait.
There are plenty of girls on customer service duties and they can be quite hands on.
For those that appreciate a Jacuzzi show then there are usually a couple of girls cavorting and entertaining
those in the ringside seats.
The bar always seems quite busy and most customers seem to have a good time.
On a slightly negative side, the bar sanctions stupidities such as toilet tips and change that is returned in piles of 1 baht coins
But on the whole the GoGo is quite a success.
Review October 2010: Surprising
The bar till surprises me that it is consistently popular and generally a
fun place to go.
The reason it surprises me is that it has high drinks prices and a fairly hasslesome attitude to tips, being a Thai run place. (Not to such an extent that it is unduly troublesome).
I guess that if there was a decent farang
bar in the vicinity, then it would do very well, but there isn't.
But as it stands, the momentum is with Silver Star 2. The girls follow the customers (and vice versa). So for the moment the bar can command a good line up of dancers. And really
that is 9/10ths of the reason for the amount of customers.
Perhaps another good reason for the success is that air con bars are pretty thin on the ground on Soi 7 and every so often, beer bar crawlers may fancy an air con break.
whatever reason, Silver Star 2 remains a popular bar with a goodly amount of attractive dancers and a fun atmosphere.
Review May 2010: Liveliest in the Area
The bar seems
to do a very good trade and seems the most consistently busy gogo in the Soi7/8 locale.
A fair amount of dancers are on duty in the bar, plenty enough to make the main stage seem pretty crowded. There are usually a couple of teams of gogo dancers
in bikinis or topless. Every so often there is a nominal show, which basically means more standard dancing but without the knickers.
There is also a Jacuzzi, home to a couple of naughty girls. There are stools around the Jacuzzi for a little
audience participation, but usually the girls are performing for those seating in the bench seats around the walls.
The quantity of girls seems to generate a fun atmosphere which is appreciated by the customers.
The bar is Thai run and a
little bit prone to rather ruthless tip extraction, but on my latest visit everyone was well behaved and I had a good time with an ex-Catz friend.
The lady drinks were a bit pricey at 130 Baht, but if supply and demand governs prices then the bar
is probably more justified in top end prices than many others.
Review July 2009: 2 Star
I think this bar has found some secret way of identifying newbies. They seem to instantly
recognise me as a critic and give me the cold shoulder. But somehow they sense a newbie and send in all and sundry to pump the new customer for lady drinks etc.
The bar is generally quite lively with plenty of girls and more than a fair share of
There are usually about 10 girls on the central stage generally topless or bikini clad. There are another dozen or so hostessing whilst waiting for their turn to dance. There is also a team keeping the Jacuzzi staffed with 2 girls at a
Every so often the main stage is cleared for 'a show' which is basically the best looking girls in the bar dancing naked.
Not really hitting many of the ideals that I look for in a gogo but it seems pretty popular all the same.
I recently stopped by So Nice but it was a bit of a struggle. There were no ladies that would get a job anywhere else bar the daytime gogos. In fact there were hardly any dancers at all.
In the past the ladies would try and make up a bit by being outrageously naughty in the bar. But on my last visit, (based on too small a sample to suggest anything other than a one off), the dancers were not offering the usual naughtiness.
crossed my mind that perhaps this was related to practical and sensible concerns about Chinese flu. But the end result was that there was no point being in the bar.
At the time the flu was not quite so obvious a threat as it is today, but surely
the flu will put a but of a dampener on hands on fun. In fact it doesn't bare thinking about what will happen to any type of bar, should things get worse.
Review, October 2017: Reverse chat up lines
on Soi 13/1 has developed into something of a Hot and Cold replacement. The girls are very proactive in grabbing your personals, in return for a few reasonably priced lady drinks. In fact the girls go further in the bar than I remember ever seeing at Hot
The girls are all naked, on and off stage. Three dancers dance three numbers to some of the quietest rock music in Pattaya.
Its all very friendly and the girls are well obliging. So what can possibly go wrong?
I have made 2
visits in the last couple of weeks and the first was great. I was well entertained by a good looking girl who was good in the art of conversation too. I was bit aware that she was the only looker in the bar, but that didn't stop it being a good time.
So I went back for a second helping, only to find that good looking girls don't stay long in these parts. I spent the time finishing my drink, working on reverse chat up lines to politely keep unwanted advances at bay.
But saying that, I
really did enjoy my first visit.

Review from Dick Farang, October 2016: Not Nice
Las Vegas III GoGo on Soi 13/1 (Soi Yamato) has reopened as SO NICE The Fun Bar .
Nothing seems to have changed and
the bench seating is still as worn out.
I saw five horrible fatties, worse even than at Miami A-GoGo on Soi 13/2 (Soi Post Office). Two of them were on stage at any time. Three were clad in string bikinis, two were topless.
I have been watching the television screens for most of my time there.

Review from Dave, October 2017: Best coffee in Pattaya
I popped into Sugar Sugar on Friday night, it was fairly quiet.
There were Coyote Dancers on stage as I entered, followed
by 6 young, very attractive Girls in G-strings only. Then back to attractive Coyote Dancers, wearing G-Strings. And all the Girls were smiling at me.
Still the best Coffee in Pattaya and only 75 Baht.
from Dave, March 2017: Sweet
I popped into Sugar Sugar recently. It was a very enjoyable visit.
There were some nice Coyote Dancers and some lovely topless young Girls.
It was a very good atmosphere with everyone having a good time.
Review from Dave, December 2015: Coffee Coffee
I popped into Sugar Sugar on Friday Night.
It was very lively with attractive coyote dancers and about 10 topless dancers also very attractive.
Well worth a visit
It still does the best coffee in an A-GoGo.
Review from Dave, July 2015:
I popped into Sugar Sugar on Saturday night, it was very lively.
Mostly Coyote dancers but very attractive Girls.
With very good atmosphere and friendly
Review from Dick Farang, March 2015: Coyote
IMO and IME Sugar Sugar on the corner of Soi Buakhaow and Soi LK Metro is not a gogo and has never been one.
first visit there, shortly after its opening some years ago, I badly hit my shin against one of the hard pouffes around the central stage. The good news is that those pouffes have disappeared; they are not needed anyway.
news is that I only saw two coyotes and a dozen schoolgirls who where even overdressed compared to those at The Classroom Bar & Hotel (Their sign no longer mentions GoGo .) on Soi 13/4 (Pattayaland 2). About all of the dancers at
Sugar Sugar seemed to cultivate fat rolls on their waists.
The waitresses were friendly enough though.
There were less than five customer bums at any time on the barstools with matching tables on the Soi LK
Metro side and on the double-tier seating along two other walls.
Bottled Heineken 120 baht, (a very small glass of) draught 55 baht (probably during happy hour only).
Review from Dave, December 2014: Stunning
An update on Sugar Sugar. It's getting better, there were 3 stunning topless girls there on Monday night.
Review from Dave, December 2014: Sweet coffee
I popped into
Sugar Sugar at LK Metro on Saturday night,
It was very lively in there. Mostly Coyote Dancers but the costumes were very revealing, some topless girls, good music and atmosphere.
TQ celebrated its 40th anniversary on August 18 2018.
Update from Tiegen, May 2018: Smoking
The lady drinks are at 155 THB now.
Less customers than usual, but still the same amount of smoke.
Update from Tiegen, October 2017: 29 bikini dancers
Opens: 1PM Draught beer: 69 baht (1 2PM, happy hour), 99 baht after 2pm Lady drinks:150 baht 29 bikini dancers, of which 6 are on stage at any one time.
Review by Malcolm, May 2010: Off
Like a Shot
Tahitian Queen on on Beach Rd has certainly risen from the ashes. Called in at 6pm on Wednesday and it was wall to wall people.
Tried to count the girls but I gave up when I reached 30.
1 pretty one
attached herself to me but it was very short lived. Within seconds I got you buy me dink I did and and shot glass arrived, from service girls hand straight down her neck and empty glass back to service girl. A few seconds of hands on fun and it
was we go room. When I declined the offer she was off like a shot looking for richer pickings.
Ladydrink B120, she was with me for only couple of minutes. Bott Singha B115.
All girls in bikinis.
News, April 2010:
Risen from the Ashes
TQ1 is currently undergoing extensive refurbishment to put right the recent fire damage. The grand re-opening on the 6th of May.
Review, May 2009:
How on earth does this bar get away with selling near the most expensive draft beer in Pattaya. The 110 Baht is simply not value for the disappointing entertainment.
The girls were
overdressed in bikinis and were not much more than shuffling to the 70's & 80's rock music.
And when not dancing they were doing their best to ignore me even when sitting close by.
Anyway don't listen to me, I am a little biased against
non-sexy overpriced bars. Better to take advice from those that like that sort of thing, there were plenty in the bar that seemed to be enjoying it.
Review, December 2008: Chatty
TQ 1 is a very popular bar, it always seems full.
And yet it has few attractions for this particular reviewer. The girls are overdressed in bikinis, there are large sections of seating with only an end on view of the long thin stage, and one
tends to be either ignored or hassled by the girls.
The reason for the popularity is more cultural than due to the gogo aspects. The bar has become a meeting place for farangs who simply like a chat with fellow farangs. This seems to be
particularly an American thing.
Anyway you can't argue with a popular bar. If you fancy a chat with your mates, then get down there.
2nd Road (a couple of doors north of the Avenue Mall car park)
There are perhaps four or five girls on
stage. These fall into the 2 -2 -2 category. In other words, they wear 2 bras, two pairs of panties and if they smile at you for two seconds it is a miracle.
Review January 2012: Nearly Coyote
The bar has had a bit of a makeover since I last stopped by. The flooring has been redone, there is now decent bench seating and the toilets are the best in town.
It looks pretty good but really not so different to before. The bar missed a trick
with the bench seating though, it is not located where the stage is. Bench seating is so important when it comes to a taking a few beers. As far as I am concerned stools are one drink and go sort of seats.
The bar was well filled with girls and there
was a fair sprinkling of customers.
There were 4 dancers on stage and it was not an impressive show. The dancing was boring, and overdressed. It was lucky that one girl was wearing a bikini top or else I would have classed it as a coyote bar. The bar
seems to have a fair amount of traditionally attired coyotes. Then there are the pretend gogo dancers who wear bikinis, but only over the top of solid bras. Then there are just a few real gogo dancers in bikinis. There's nothing less. There were a few
decent looking dancers awaiting their turn but it was all too draggy to want to make an effort to stay and see.
There was a reasonable draft beer at 65 Baht and there are loads of service girls to make sure of prompt attention. There was a girl
circulating the audience with ping pong balls but she was not pushy.
I guess most regulars go for the rock videos, and maybe a game of pool, rather than the dancers. Not a bar I'll rush back to until I hear that the girls have shed a few clothes. I
rather fear I may be gone some time.
Review January 2011: Still Popular
As always the bar was doing a good trade on a January weekday early evening.
about 6 girls dancing all in a lingerie bikini affair. There were about another half dozen or so waiting their turn to dance. There was one very attractive girl and there were a couple more who could get a job on Walking Street.
There were also
countless hostesses dotted around the bar.
But somehow the GoGo aspect of the bar doesn't really seem to be the focus of attention of the customers. I think it is something along the lines of TQ 1 or TQ 2 where it is primarily a meeting point for a
community. Maybe Danish bikers. Just a guess after there seemed to be a certain amount of appreciation for a Danish rock act appearing on the playlist.
Anyway the girls didn't seem to be particularly interactive, so I enjoyed a beer's worth of Tom
Petty and went off to seek a bar more focused on GoGo entertainment.
Review July 2010: Victoria's Secret
As per normal the bar was reasonably full with customers.
Always a bit of surprise to me but it seems pretty consistent.
Another minor surprise was that the dancing girls have a new uniform idea that I have rarely seen before. They were dressed in striking red underwear. Not your usual knickers and bikini
top, but in knickers, corsets, bras, suspender belts, negligee, the works!.
Perhaps a little of an over exaggeration but way too much covering for my tastes, though I can image there may be many who would appreciate this variation. Me, I was wondering
if it still qualified as a GoGo bar where I consider the maximum clothing allowed should be a bikini.
Anyway there were 6 or so girls dancing on the square central stage and plenty more dancers, sitting waiting their turn. And in terms of talent,
there were a few that appealed, which is a better standard than that of yesteryear.
None of the prettier girls seemed on the lookout for customers to drink with though, so I didn't stay long. I spent the remainder of the time wondering why the place
was so popular. In the end, the only thing I found worthy of particular praise was the collection of music videos. There were some real gems, of obscure but excellent rock.
Review Dec 2009: Large Staff
Tim A-GoGo perpetually baffles me. It has been going a long time and employs an enormous cast of service girls, hostesses and dancers. Yet I never find any particular reason to stay beyond a single beer.
There are usually
half a dozen dancers on stage who are always overdressed in bikinis. There aren't many that arouse much interest but there have been a few attractive girls milling round though on my last visits.
The seating is limited to uncomfortable stools and the
best bet is to find one where the wall can be used as a back rest.
The girls don't seem very interested in customers unless someone is recognised as a newbie. Then they are sure to receive a fair bit of attention.
The only obvious attraction is an
interesting selection of rock videos played on the large screen TVs.
But really I don't see how they attract enough custom to justify the large staff. Perhaps I'm missing something.
Review May 2009:
The Wrong Type of Nibbles
As I was shown to my seat, a couple of cuties were turfed out of my designated stool. I thought things were looking up, but they found some dark corner of the bar to hide in,
and I never spotted them again.
The dancing girls were average, and were overdressed in bikinis. There were 5 on the stage at any one time. The music is well chosen with some very classic rock videos and some less well known bands, but still good
However live rock tracks can be very long and anyone waiting for 5 songs worth of dancing for their girl to return, would be waiting a long time. It doesn't really inspire much in the way of dancing either
There were plenty of girls waiting
their turn to dance and these are supplemented by a fair few hostesses.
It seemed strange then, that the girl who tried her luck with me, tried the old trick of approaching one song before she was due to dance. Never works with me, I never buy a drink
for at least the first track.
The girl's little trick introduces the low key hassle factor that's associated with the bar. The service staff do regular rounds of trying to sell extras, in particular, vodka shots, ping pong balls and nibbles
(unfortunately of the potato chip variety). The hassle was pretty minor though, a simple 'mai ow krup' was sufficient to move them on to bother somebody else.
But it would take one of the cuties mentioned earlier to persuade me to stay for a second
beer. Something that has yet to happen for me in this bar.
Review Nov 2008: Still Doing Well
I was taken aback by a friendly welcome from the Thai managers and
wasn't really expecting cordialities when entering a bar and I'm not sure I returned the greeting.
The bar boasts an enormous number of hostess and/or service girls. If they had a half as many, it would still be well staffed. Perhaps it gets very
The dancers were all bikini clad but their are now about half a dozen girls that are pretty enough to hold their own in Walking Street. Still a fair few oldies though.
The hostess service girls were friendly enough but I prefer
it when the dancers do the hostessing.
Didn't spot any hassle to sell stuff such as munchies and raffle tickets, or indeed, ping pong balls. Perhaps they have sensibly eased off on the hard sell.
The music is still the same with well chosen, but
often repeated, oldie farang rock videos.
Pattaya Soi 6 (Soi Yodsak) (2nd Road end)
Opened 5th September 2007 as a lady boy GoGo. Converted to
Tornado Bar , an open bar in February 2008
Many, if not all, gogos charge higher barfines on what they consider special days.
Every bar has a different definition of which days are special though. And some special days are even more special (expensive) than others.
The 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.
Nudity cannot be guaranteed and whenever
the Pattay police are on the prowl the girls cover up. Closing times are sporadic depending upon local enforcement. 3am or 4am is now the norm.
Anyone with Middle Eastern or South Asian dark skin should be aware that they may
receive a rather negative welcome. 90% of gogo bars have unspecified entry restrictions which can be hard to tie down as different people have had different receptions. Unwelcome faces will be told at the door that the bar is suddenly a members only
club. Discriminatory maybe, but it is for real, it is based on experience, and it is supported by those who care about the welfare of the girls.
Just a couple of times people have had a bad experience in a bar which is perhaps the
fault of an individual employee rather than bar policy. More often then not, the bar would be more than happy to deal with offsite problems even when it is not strictly their problem. To try and be fair to the bars, offsite complaints about employees can
only be considered for inclusion if they have first been presented to the bar involved.
