  Unhappy Pattaya...

Miserable military government orders a crackdown on Pattaya nightlife

Link Here 23rd February 2017

Daily Mail logoI've just been into Walking Street, what a waste of time. There was no action. No nudity anywhere.

Apparently the Police found an English guy having sex with a girl over the Windmill, the English papers got hold of the story and dubbed Thailand sex capital of the World. The government are very unhappy and have had a clamp down,

But the story must have originally come from the Police? So they are to blame.

I wonder how long it will last?

Unhappy Junta

See article from

In response to a recent report that labels Pattaya as the world's sex capital , the junta head has announced a crackdown on prostitution.

On 21 February 2017, Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha, the Prime Minister and junta head, announced that he will order the police to uproot Pattaya's sex industry. He asserted that local authorities always do their best to suppress the industry.

Prayut said the Thai media should not highlight the issue due to the risk of tarnishing the country's image, adding that the Thai media should not believe a story written by foreigners.

'Happy' Zones

See article from

A top policeman at a crisis meeting to discuss Pattaya's crime and image has announced that 'Happy Zones' will be set up in the resort to protect tourists and their possessions. The 'Happy Zone' idea comes from national police HQ and will be introduced in tourist towns nationwide but trialed in Pattaya first where the need has been deemed as urgent, reported Siamchonnews.

Yesterday operators on Walking Street were invited to Pattaya town hall to meet with regional chiefs, local cops, district officials and immigration forces to hear the plans.

Somprasong Yenthuam, a Chonburi police spokesman chairing the gathering, said that tourism revenue was very important in Thailand and the safety of tourists and their possessions was paramount. Specifically he asked for all establishments to set up their own CCTV. Each venue and shop is to have their own liaison officer to work closely with police, military and the municipal authority.

The policeman spoke of 'protecting' visitors from crime but clearly the CCTV policy is to try and suffocate the sex trade.

Ludicrous Claims

See article from

Pattaya's police chief has hit back at claims that Pattaya is only about sex by making ludicrous claims that tourists come to the resort for its natural wonders. But he seems determined to clear out the streetwalkers nonetheless.

Apichai Kroppetch blamed the emphasis on sex on British businessmen who have set up in the sex trade at the resort. Referring to the UK newspaper report he spouted:

It is not true, it is just lies. Pattaya is more about nature than sex. reported that police were going to target streetwalkers who line Beach Road as well as conduct more raids on the sex business in the resort.


  Another step...

Upstairs A-GoGo re-opens

Link Here 23rd February 2017

Upstairs A-GoGo sign Upstairs A-GoGo re-opened on 21st Feb.

Meanwhile the dark Overmind is saying that it is undergoing another renovation, but this is not entirely convincing.



Pattaya GoGo News

Link Here 20th February 2017

Upstairs A-GoGo sign The southernmost gogo of Walking Street, Upstairs A-GoGo , previously Utopia A-GoGo, has gone dark. Their annoying touting ladyboy will not have helped.

At the previous location of Abbe's Bar on Walking Street all references to a Pacha gogo have disappeared. Perhaps the appointment by the junta of a police general as the new Pattaya mayor is perceived as a deterrent to continuing investing on the encroached beach.

It looks like the curtain has finally fallen on Overmind Club upstairs of Soi Diamond and Soi 15.

At Frog Queen on Walking Street the recently added sign has already disappeared, the door and curtains were wide open and the place was completely empty.

On Beach Road, at the previous location of World Wide A-GoGo , a Burger King is to open. In a way they remain in the flesh trade.


  Lowering the tone of the area...

world wide burger kingSilver Star A-GoGo on Pattaya Soi 8 fell victim to a police raid on the 18th February at about 9:45pm. The final outcome is unknown but the bar shut for the remainder of the evening.

Meanwhile around the corner on Beach Road, a fine traditional GoGo is being replaced by a downmarket junk food outlet. The old World Wide A-GoGo is now being redeveloped as a Burger King, with notices proclaiming that it will be opening soon.



DClub A-GoGo opens on Walking Street.

Link Here 17th February 2017
dclub cardDClub A-GoGo opened on 16th February on Soi Diamond but is accessed via stairs on Walking Street.

The venue was once Tiger A-GoGo but became a standard nightclub named DClub. Presumably that venture was not quite a success as the owners have now changed to an A-GoGo club.

Meanwhile the newly opened Frog Queen was dark on 16th February.

And the new Pacha A-GoGo that did not make its 1st of February opening seems to have stalled, maybe permanently. This seems a bit of a shame as there are quite a few good looking new recruits  wearing Pacha tops working in the French connection sister bars such as Crazy House.

There are now 85 bars on the Pattaya GoGo list but a couple of those may soon be removed if reported dark bars turn out to be permanent closures.


  Fake news in the Daily Record...

Scottish newspaper exaggerates a tiny little local story of a routine police raid of a GoGo, suggesting that it is the beginning of the end of Pattaya's sexy nightlife

Link Here 17th February 2017
windmill club logoScotland's Daily Record 'newspaper' has hyped up a local story of a routine police raid into the beginning of the end for Pattaya's sexy nightlife.

The paper leads with the headline

Sex sells in world's sleaziest city but Pattaya's 27,000 prostitutes could see roaring trade wiped out. Thailand's first female tourism minister aims to eradicate sex tourism and reinvent the country as a female-friendly destination and cops are now raiding brothels.

And continues:

Every year more than one million visitors a year pass through the Thai resort known as the world's sex capital. Many men are drawn there by one thing only. Pattaya has a reported 27,000 prostitutes, roughly one for every five people living permanently in the east-coast city that has been likened to a modern-day Sodom and Gomorrah.

The resort's infamous main drag, the largest red-light district on earth, is lined with sex clubs and go-go bars. Pattaya alone has more than 1,000 bars and massage parlours, many fronts illegal brothels.

In fact the tourism minister's comments are now pretty old news and the 27,000 sex workers and the 1000 bars have been operating unabated ever since.

Police have been routinely raiding bars regularly for years, and there is nothing to suggest that this particular raid is in any way out of the ordinary.

And on the night after the police raid, the 27000 sex workers and 1000 bars were operating as normal, not even dropping to 999, as the bar being raided seems to have settled its differences with the authorities.

And guess what, a couple of days later there are still 27,000 sex workers plying their trade, but admittedly a couple of bars have closed, more due to the million visitors not quite being enough.


  Scary Thailand...

A police raid on Windmill Club must have been terrifying for the British victim who was caught on the job in a short time room and paraded in front of the world's press, including the Daily Mail

Link Here 15th February 2017

Thai Police logoA British tourist must have been terrified after a police raid at Windmill Club on Soi Diamond resulted in him being caught upstairs in bed in short time rooms next door.

The 62-year-old from London has thankfully not been named. The world's press, notably the UK's Daily Mail, published a picture of the man with his face turned away from the camera.

Policemzn Naris Niramaiwon said the holidaymaker and the girl had been released while the bar's owner was arrested on suspicion of supplying prostitutes in the workplace without permission. Bizarrely the police claimed that this terrifying experience for this old man was somehow intended: to create peace of mind for travellers visiting the area for nightlife. And then added that customers are expected to check the licence paperwork of bars they visit. He said:

The venue did not have the correct licence and the owner will be prosecuted. The tourist from the UK has been warned about this.

The police also visited the nearby Heaven Above A-GoGo. Both venues opened normally the next evening.


  Enjoying shore leave in Pattaya...

Cobra Gold 2017

cobra gold 2017 logoThe annual Cobra Gold naval exercise starts on 14th February and continues until the 28th.

The upshot of this international exercise is that many US service men end up being able to enjoy a little shore leave in Pattaya. And of course there are many girls in Pattaya who are keen for the chance to provide a little rest and relaxation.



A new GoGo set to open on Walking Street

dclub cardDClub closed at the beginning of the year after a short attempt as a nightclub. The bar is now hoping to return to life as DClub A-GoGo.

The Soi Diamond venue has stairs leading up from Walking Street and was previously home to Tiger Lounge/Club A-GoGo.

DClub's next door neighbour Overmind A-GoGo, seems to be struggling it its similarly upstairs location, and has had a few more dark nights.



Pattaya Bar Reviews: Club Sin

Link Here 31st January 2017

club sinOn Soi Full Love Inn one more hostess bar with doorbell has opened: Sin Club.

As most bars on that strip (i.e. with the exception of Le Carr39 Blanc which is double unit and Pirates which is one and a half unit) it is a narrow single-unit bar.

On the signs the name is spelt both Sin Club and Club Sin .

The bar appears to be part of Bryan Flowers's empire.

(On the same strip another smallish, presumably Japanese themed, bar by the same group is taking shape: J Club.)

The layout of Sin Club is nothing to write home about: a bar counter with bar stools on the right-hand side and one curtained-off area to the rear.

I was their only customer and saw about six mediocre girls around the thirty-year mark.

Barfine 300 baht, room upstairs or curtained-off area downstairs included, FS 1,000 baht.

Bottled Heineken 90 baht.


  Easy Going...

Pattaya Bar Reviews: Bamboo Entertainment

Link Here 29th January 2017
Bamboo Entertainment signLast night Overmind Club (both entrances) was dark once more. That seems to become a chronic disease.

On upper Soi Khao Talo Happy Moon's Bar has become The Secret.

Bamboo Bar on Pattayatai near Walking Street appears to be a real gold mine. It is always crowded from early on, with most Thai females arriving between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m.

Live music, mostly hits from the previous century such as My Way , and a dance floor in front of the singers and orchestra.

A lot of mature birds there (but not all) and many of them heading for the Walking Street discos later at night, often in teams of two or three.

Going fees are 1,000 baht ST and 1,500-2,000 baht LT, no barfine.

It is hit or miss if you will find a girl who fits the bill, but the easy-going atmosphere helps with the vetting and I have never met a starfish there.

The Pattaya Beer Garden formula however does not seem to work well, probably because punters cannot as casually roam there.

No "check bins" at Bamboo Bar, but immediate payment.

I presume they apply dual pricing with Thais paying much less. Some Thai females (probably the more hardened pros) are drinking alcopops or sharing bottles of Thai spirits, but the majority are sparingly nursing their still water, soda water or coca cola.

If you pay with a 1,000-baht note the waiter or waitress will give you a plastic badge as proof of payment until they bring the change.

That being said I have made it a habit of always carrying enough small cash and changing the higher denominations at trusted places such as restaurants, supermarkets and the post office.

Bottled Heineken 140 baht.


  Soi 6 is pumping...

More new bars

Meanwhile the old Nelson Hotel on the same soi has also returned to life. It is now Sandman Hotel and Sports Bar.


  Amethyst turned into gold...

Gold Club A-GoGo opens on Soi LK Metro

gold openingGold Club A-GoGo opened on 20th January on Soi LK Metro in the venue that was previously Amethyst.

The GoGo had in fact opened under the current management in November last year but an apparent dispute about the name resulted in rework for a renaming to Gold.

The bar is offering opening specials for 1 week: house spirits 80 baht, bottles Leo, Tiger, Singha 80 baht, San Miguel Light and Heineken 100 baht.

Barfine are 800 Baht ST and 1000 Baht LT. Lady drinks are 140 Baht.

There are now 84 GoGos around Pattaya.


  Another spin of the wheel...

But the name will live in. Sister bar Cream Club opposite the original Casino Club has been renamed to Casino Cream Club.


  Beach Erosion...

Too many coyotes at Beach Club and Happy

Link Here 13th January 2017

beach club soi happy I went to beach Club last night and it was about 25% smaller, the end nearer Walking Street has gone, probably to Bypass. There were some topless girls, but I counted over 20 Coyote Dancers, Not many punters.

So I went into Happy, a bit busier, but still more than half empty. Again loads on Coyote Dancers. What is Happening? No one is going to fly 5000 miles and spend thousands of pounds to see girls in shorts, sports bra's and T-shirts. Is this a deliberate ploy by Happy Group? or are Coyote Dancers all they can get? Their profits must have Dived over the last 6 months.


  What's in a name?...

GoGo and bar news from around Pattaya

Frog Queen GoGoThe GoGo associated with Frog Bar is missing a sign but a party poster confirms the name Frog Queen. Perhaps if you kiss one of their ugly frogs she may turn into a beautiful princess.

The new GoGo being built on Soi Diamond will likely be called Relux. Perhaps Relux is to Deluxe as Retox is to Detox.

ccome togetherMeanwhile the blow job bar Come Together has taken over from Carré Blanc, presumably referring to the Soi Full Love Inn location.


  Another new GoGo for Soi Diamond?...

Bar news from around Pattaya

swiss houseOn Walking Street, at the previous location of Abbe's Bar, a new gogo Pacha is nearing completion. Meanwhile DClub went dark.

On Soi LK Metro, where Amethyst Club used to be, Gold Club did not open on 5th January and also no recruiting is taking place.

It looks as if on Soi Diamond, at the previous location of the defunct restaurant Swiss House, a new gogo is taking shape.

The Casino Club, closed on police orders is now being merged into a tailor's shop...the ignominy.

Last night Overmind Club was open.

In The Windmill Club A-GoGo on Soi Diamond I saw a for-sale notice for G-Spot Pattaya on Walking Street.


  A new price jump...

Frog Bar opens a GoGo on Walking Street

Link Here 6th January 2017

frog signOn Walking Street, right of Frog's Bar and probably connected to it, a nameless gogo has opened. Ishi suggests that it is called Frog Queen Super model.

It is narrow and cheaply laid out with a central stage with four chrome poles, double-tier seating on the right-hand side and single-tier seating on the left-hand side.

The seating and very narrow unstable tables in front of it are of the poorest quality I have ever seen in a gogo.

lip shaped pastiesMost of the dancers were clad in white coyote outfits, but there were also some in white string bikinis who went topless on stage, two of them wearing pink lip-shaped pasties. Most of them were rather tall, too fat and silicone enhanced.

Very loud music and disturbing laser beams.

I got a drink spilt over my clothes, not sure if it was because of a clumsy movement by a waitress, a mamasan or the customers sat behind me.

BEWARE: I had to insist and wait to receive my change.

Bottled Heineken 150 baht, lady drinks 210 (!) baht, model drinks 250 (!!) baht


 Updated: Post peak...

Sugar Baby and Overmind go dark

Link Here 5th January 2017
sugar baby renovationsSugar Baby A-GoGo was dark on Walking Street last night citing renovations. The girls were relocated to Windmill Club.

Meanwhile Overmind on Soi 15/Soi Diamond was also dark. This has happened a couple of times before perhaps due to difficulties in rounding up a dancing crew.

Both closures are probably just a blip so the Pattaya GoGo count will not be changed for the moment.

Update: Re-opened

And indeed it was blip, both bars re-opened the following night.


  Waning Moon...

Moon Club goes dark

The Moon Club sign Moon Club is on the corner of Walking Street and Soi Diamond.

The GoGo has now been dark for the last 3 nights.

One staff member explained: It will re-open in a couple of week for renovation, but a former member of staff was less positive saying: It closed, not sure re-opening.

Until it re-opens there are 82 bars claiming to be GoGos around Pattaya.


  Old Bars, New Hands...

Several well known bars are back, albeit in new formats

Link Here 3rd January 2017
le pubThe Charming Egg meets the Charming Crab

The Charming Crab is a long running beer bar at the 2nd Road end of Soi Diamond. It has now become Le Pub . Mister Egg, the well known bar manager previously at the original Electric Blue, Windmill, Sugarbaby and Secrets is in control.

Player's Lounge

The Player's Lounge has re-opened towards the south end of Soi Buakhao. I'm not exactly sure why, but it seems quite big news on the Pattaya forums.

Robin Hood Tavern

Shenanigan's started life as a pub/restaurant in the Marriott Hotel/Royal Garden Plaza on 2nd Road. It seemed the centre of society for those that read Pattaya's English language newspapers. The pub moved across the road to an upstairs location at the Avenue Mall and gradually fizzled out. The pub is now re-opening as the Robin Hood Tavern.


  The Return of Jaws...

Shark Club A-GoGo returns to Pattaya

Link Here 2nd January 2017
jaws return advertShark Club A-GoGo was a long running bar upstairs on Soi Diamond (also with an entrance on Soi 15).

Shark on Soi 15In May 2016 the bar relocated across Soi 15 to the venue that was previously Spice Club, and more famously before, Beach Club. The old Shark venue was then taken over by Overmind. However Shark owners continued to use the name Spice Club.

But now, on the 1st January 2017, the owners restored the name to Shark Club.

Of course this does not affect the Pattaya GoGo count which remains at 83.


  Alchemy on Soi LK Metro...

Turning Amethyst into Gold

Link Here 1st January 2017
Gold Club banner Amethyst on Soi LK Metro tries its hand as an Angelwitch style show bar. Eventually the owners decided it may be best to move to Walking Street and relocated there as Pheromone Club.

Amethyst on Soi LK Metro then 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 is now set to re-open as Gold on 5th January.
