The long running and popular Heaven Above A-GoGo closed a few months ago on Soi Diamond. Now the GoGo's connections have created a new venue bearing the same name on Soi Boomerang off Soi Buakhao (by Pattaya City Hospital).
Heaven Above now
describes itself as a gentlemen's club, but Soi Boomerang is a new entertainment area that features bars that blur the line between gentlemen's clubs and GoGos. So it seems likely that Heaven Above will go with the GoGo trending flow.
Post lockdown opening doesn't seem to have worked out for Glass House A-GoGo and it re-closed on 27th September 2020.
There's been further reshuffling in the French Connection GoGos on Walking Street with Lighthouse A-GoGo re-opening on
2nd October. Bliss A-GoGo has ended it's partial weekend opening and is currently closed every day.
And in an update to previous news, it is Panda Club that is open on Walking Street, (the venue that was once better known as Tony's
Disco). Panda A-GoGo has yet to re-open after the coronavirus lockdown.

Another famous name, Heaven Above A-GoGo , has announced that it will be re-opening at a new venue in Soi Boomerang. This is an up and coming bar area off Soi Buakhao near
Pattaya City Hospital.
On the downside some popular bars are re-closing.
Pattaya Beer Garden re-opened after the end of the coronavirus lockdown but there were insufficient customers in town. The bar has therefore be closed from 29th
September but will re-open once visitors return.
Pook Plaza is a beer bar complex on Soi Buakhao opposite Soi LK Metro. It re-opened after the end of lockdown but has now re-closed presumably in light of a limited customer base.
Baby Boom A-GoGo has long been a lady boy GoGo but now it has said that it would be converting to a GoGo with real ladies. It re-opened with girls on 10th September 2020.
The bar is located on Soi Boomerang which is off Soi Buakhao opposite Pattaya
City Hospital. The soi has become a bit of hub as there are now several gentlemen's clubs open with Golden Time also offering GoGo dancing.
The GoGo has a happy hour from 6pm until 9pm and offers 2 for 1 on house spirits.
Hollywood is long established disco now located on Soi Phet Trakun in North Pattaya.

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

Pattaya Police called 130 entertainment operators to a meeting at City Hall to make sure that they are still on guard against COVID 19. This comes the same day as what appears to be the first locally spread case in Thailand in 101 days was discovered.
Pattaya Police Chief Colonel Khemmarin Pitsamai said at the meeting:
We must strictly continue on the COVID- 19 precautions. After two months, we have found that most of our local entertainment operators have followed those measurements but not
one hundred percent.
However, if any of them missed one of the precautions, we will verbally talk to them first. If they missed it for the second time we will take legal action which may include fines or other penalties.
The punishment for
breaking the Emergency Decree is up to two years imprisonment and the fine is up to 40,000 baht. The punishment for breaking the disease control law under the Communicable Disease Act is imprisonment up to one year and fines up to 100,000 baht.
Measures discussed at the meeting were mostly familiar, wearing masks, using the Thai Chana application to check in, social distancing, limit the number of people at tables, midnight closures and other items.
