Pretty Naughty...

Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Naughty Girls

Link Here28th March 2017

Inside Naughty Girls on Soi Diamond was more activity than one would have expected from outside.

The interior has remained unchanged for years.

There were two teams of about five dancers each clad in black bikinis, some in strings and some double bottomed. About half of them were topless and I saw some nice bodies and some nice natural racks.

There was a steady flow of customers. A more-than-drunk Japanese was buying trays of tequila shots for the girls.

Pity of the cigarette smoke.

I was told the barfine was 800 baht, the girls expecting 1,500-2,000 baht ST and 3,000 baht LT.

Bottled Heineken 135 baht now.



Kiss and tell...

Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Dollhouse, Champagne, Pandora's

Link Here26th March 2017

I popped into the Dollhouse on Soi 15 on Saturday night.

A very pleasant experience. There were very attractive girls ranging from Coyote Dancers to nude.

There were 2 very attractive and slim Girls in the large bath who were not shy in showing their pussies, or letting punters feel and kiss them.

The Girls on the stage came over and introduced themselves.

Well worth a visit.

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.

I popped into Pandora's on LK 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.



Oyster Divers and Moon Rock Stars...

Pattaya bar and GoGo news and reviews

Link Here24th March 2017

Silver Star A-GoGo on Soi 8 has re-opened after a month's closure at the behest of the authorities.

On Walking Street Rock Street is still closed after the fire last week, but their neighbours SkyFall A-GoGo have reopened.

Also on Walking Street the building, where The Moon Club used to be, is being gutted.

On Soi 13/4 (Pattayaland 2), wher e Classroom A-GoGo and some adjoining bars used to be, a four-unit rock beer bar has opened, unsurprisingly named Classroom .

After several takeovers La Guinguette on Soi Siam Country Club Soi 27 has closed once more.

To succeed at such a difficult location you have to offer something more, like White Oyster Lounge on Soi Chaiyapornwithi does.

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

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

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

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

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

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



Waiting for Pitt...

Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Lighthouse and Iron

Link Here22nd March 2017

I popped into the Lighthouse A-GoGo on Walking Street on Monday evening. What a disappointment!

There were 10 Coyote Dancers on the stage and 10-15 sitting around. Some of them were attractive some stunning. I made eye contact with none of them,

The waiting staff looked like they'd been to a funeral.

As I was leaving a very attractive girl, sitting by the door, smiled at me. I said it's too fucking late now, why didn't you come over earlier? I got no reply.

I Guess they were waiting for Brad Pitt to arrive?

I popped into the Iron Club Monday night. What a terrible place with very loud music.

The place is as big as a barn. 2 very large stages and an unused Bath take up most of the space, with very awkward seating round the walls

It has no atmosphere and not many punters to fill the large area.

A few nice looking girls, 3 I'd seen before elsewhere.

With expensive drinks, lady drinks are 195.



X marks the spot...

News at 6

Link Here19th March 2017
A new Soi 6 opened on 19th March. X-Bar is located next door to So What and across from Spider Girl.

It's located in a bit of a ladyboy oriented area of the soi, but so far no ladyboys have been spotted there.



Gold Bar...

Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Gold

Link Here17th March 2017

After several attempts Gold Club has finally reopened on Soi LK Metro at the venue that was previously Amethyst Club and before that M*A*S*H A-GoGo.

This is a short gogo with a central stage and double-tier bench seating on both sides. There is a narrow gallery around the gogo which apparently only serves as an access to the firemen's pole.

About half of the dancers were clad in red bikinis and black stay-up stockings. They would strip topless towards the end of their dance stint. The other half were coyotes mostly in white and very pushy for lady drinks.

The quality of the females was average, from 4 to 6, and still a lot better than the cattle at the overpriced previous incarnation Amethyst Club.

The short and sexy mamasan was wearing a black elegant jumpsuit with a backless lace top.

Not many customers and nobody stayed long. No remarks on the lighting and music. Nice and clean separate toilets.

Bottled Heineken 130 baht.



Small worries...

Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Lek

Link Here14th March 2017

Pattaya's northernmost gogo, Lek A-GoGo on Second Road between Soi 5 and Soi 4, is still surviving.

Nothing has changed to its interior in the two years of their existence.

At 9 p.m. I was their first and only customer.

On the rectangular stage with three chrome poles was a big Josephine Baker shaped dancer, perhaps a ladyboy. Her transparent top was too small for her enormous bolt-ons and she finally threw it in my direction.

She later told me she was from Bangkok , her barfine was 1,000 baht, there was a nice room at 300 baht nearby and she wanted to go with me for free .  As I have always been wary of free lunches and even more so of free rides, I declined politely. Although she had no particularly deep voice, she did not want me to check her fanny.

After her dance stint three mediocre girls in way too big red bikinis had taken to the stages.

Bottled Heineken still 120 baht



Updated: State of undress...

Some bars are still on edge after the military government targeted Pattaya

Link Here14th March 2017

Peppermint had topless girls but with nipples covered up. Even though the clampdown is over, no nudity.

The leader of the Army Junta is coming to Pattaya at the end of the month and probably the cover up will be back on for his visit.

Update: Undressed and not

14th March 2017. Thanks to Dave

I don't know if the Clampdown is officially over but there are Topless girls In Happy and Skyfall There are naked girls in G-spot and Sugarbaby short times rooms are open over sweethearts.

Girls are still covered up in Baccara and Living Dolls one (nipples covered),

Update: Shortages and short shorts

18th March 2017. Thanks to Dave

Every a-go-go I go in has a shortage of Dancers, even Baccara,

No shortage at sapphire club though. It becomes more like a a-go-go every time I go there, with skimpier shorts and tops.

Since the Clampdown started every where I go the Girls are wearing much more revealing shorts.



Overmind remind...

News and Pattaya GoGo Reviews

Link Here11th March 2017

In the small soi off Soi Buakhaow opposite the Sawasdee Siam building, at the previous location of Baby Boom A-GoGo, Fairy Club has become PinUp Club.

In an open shack on upper Soi Khao Talo, where Samorn Bar used to be before they moved across the road, Nice Girl Bar has opened.

At Passion Dance Club on Soi 6 ST rooms are no longer available, the old mamasan told me.

Believe it or not: upstairs from Soi 15 and Soi Diamond Overmind Club has reopened once more.

On top of the Soi 15 entrance is a window now with two chrome poles and dancers visible from the street. With the power lines in front it is not a nice sight.

The interior has been redone completely.

From the Soi 15 entrance side are two rectangular central stages, each of them with two thick chrome pillars on them and surrounded with seven normal chrome poles fixed to the ceiling. Between those stages is a lower round stage with only one chrome pole in the middle. Behind those stages is a square Jacuzzi.

On the Soi 15 side is single-tier bench seating and on the Soi Diamond side triple(!)-tier bench seating.

At the rear near the toilets and the Soi Diamond entrance is one more low round stage with one chrome pole in the middle and some bench seating around.

The dancers were mostly sub-average and clad in white: about 80% in coyote outfits and about 20% in too big string bikinis.

After a while (that means after a mamasan insisted) the bikini dancers would take off their tops. Several of them were wearing pasties in different colours and shapes: lips, hearts and stars. One of them had ridiculous bolt-ons with green stars on her nipples.

Two naked girls were soaping in the Jacuzzi.

Tik, perhaps the shortest waitress in Pattaya who used to work at Alcatraz A-GoGo and before that at Kiss A-GoGo and at Far East Rock A-GoGo, told me she did not like the place and would go back to Alcatraz when they reopen in three months.

The music was way too loud and the lighting poor.

Only a fistful of customers for dozens of females.

The gents is in a state of disrepair.

Bottled Heineken 160 baht, up from 140 baht.

The Pattaya GoGo count has now increased to 81.




Pattaya GoGo Reviews: SkyFall

Link Here9th March 2017
SkyFall is located on Walking Street near the Beach Road end.

I popped into Skyfall on Tuesday night.  I sat down an ordered a Heineken. When I looked up I got a real shock, all the girls on Stage had taken their tops off and their were some lovely pairs of tits on show.

Most of the girls were Coyote Dancers, but their shorts were cut right back, showing a lot of bum.

All the girls were attractive and friendly. It was not too busy, so not a bad visit.



GoGoing Going or Gone...

Silver Star, Alcatraz, Overmind, Working Girl

Link Here8th March 2017
Silver Star A-GoGo on Soi was an early casualty of the military's short-lived clean-up of Pattaya. It suffered a high profile police raid presumably resulting in a 30 day closure order.  The bar is a now announcing that t will re-open on 21st March.

Meanwhile Alcatraz A-GoGo on Walking Street  has closed, nominally for a 3 month re-fit, but it seems doubtful that it will return in its current form.

After a period of intermittent opening, the current closure at Overmind looks terminal.

Working Girl A-GoGo on Soi 6 has also closed and is up for sale but there are suggestions that the Night Wish group are taking an interest.

This leaves 80 bars defining themselves as GoGos still in operation.



Shack stack...

Pattaya Restaurant Reviews: Caddy Shack

Link Here6th March 2017
Caddy Shack is located on Theprassit Soi 8 opposite the Punch and Judy pub.

I popped into the Caddy Shack for Sunday Lunch. It was a very nice experience,

All the staff were very friendly. The Sunday lunch special was; soup, roast with choice of meat and ice cream & Banana for sweet. I

It was very nice but the quantities were very large. I could not eat it all.

Draft Cider was on special offer at 130b per pint. I had draft Fosters Lager. which was very nice.

Can be well recommended.



Stairs to the stars...

News and reviews from the Silver Stars and Upstairs

Link Here1st March 2017

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.

Upstairs from Walking Street, where Dclub and before that the short-lived tomboy club and Tiger Club A-GoGo used to be, DClub A-GoGo has opened.

In the middle of the left-hand side is still the white DJ desk and in the back is still a lounge with sofas. Left of the entrance is a bar counter and in the middle are two central stages, each of them surrounded with eight chrome poles of about 1.80 metres high.

The bench seating on both sides looks comfortable at first sight, but appears to have been conceived for people with extra short legs. Left and right of the DJ desk are black cubes that can serve as small stages.

As was the case in the Tiger Club A-GoGo days the mixed toilets are still outside.

All dancers were overdressed coyotes clad in black, in quality varying from average to plain ugly. On each of the main stages were about six of them. Not the slightest nudity.

The mamasan looked like a ladyboy and perhaps was one.

Some girls were trying to sell shots.

The music was shitty and too loud.

The lighting was very bad, probably on purpose. From the rear disturbing laser beams were blinding the public.

There were not many customers and most of them were Asians.

Nobody seemed to buy lady drinks, let alone pay barfines.

On internet I read somewhere the lady drinks are from 165 baht, the barfines from 1,000 baht ST and the birds' fees from 2,500 (!) baht ST. Draught beer 79 baht, bottled Heineken 150 baht.



Updated: Authorities vs Pattaya...

News from the front line

Link Here27th February 2017

The clampdown still goes on. It's not only the Girls being forced to wear bra's, it also affects the short time rooms. You can only pay for a room all night and you have to give in your passport.

The police were in Soi 15 after midnight, taking away motor bikes parked there. I have no idea how they were choosing them, they could be ones not displaying tax, but that's most bikes.

Working Girl on Soi 6 closed on 22nd Feb.

Silver Star on Soi 8 aims to re-open after a 1 month police closure. The staff have moved to Silver Star 2 on Soi 7.

The gentlemen's clubs seem a particular target of the current police  action and are on the defensive. Kinnaree Place was locked on 24th Feb. Club 4 was closed on 22nd February. See local news article

There is also an unconfirmed rumour that Alcatraz A-GoGo will close from 1st March for 3 months renovation.

Update: Swanning off

27th February 2017. Thanks to Teigen

Ishi noted that Kinnaree Place was locked on 24th Feb .

In fact Kinnaree Place hasn't opened at all from Thursday 23rd.

However I just saw that this morning (28th) that they are cleaning the place again and the gates were open. Maybe back to normal, or now just a pick-up place and a venue for drinks and buffet... Wait and see.



Unhappy Pattaya...

Miserable military government orders a crackdown on Pattaya nightlife

Link Here23rd February 2017

I'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 Here23rd February 2017

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 Here20th February 2017

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.



Very happy, but no sugar and no pep...

Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Happy, Sugar Baby, Peppermint

Link Here19th February 2017

I popped into Happy on Tuesday night. It was much improved with some new topless girls and a lot of the old Girls back. I only counted 15 Coyote Dancers.

There was good music, as always, and a good atmosphere. Let's hope the improvement continues and it gets back to normal, which was the best a-go-go in Pattaya.


I popped into Sugar Baby last week, it was a most forgettable experience.

There were not many Girls, most of them below average. The girls on the mats were doing nothing.

I had no contact from any girl, there was no atmosphere.

I won't be going back in a hurry.


I popped into Peppermint last week. I sat at the stage. I was the only punter at the stage,

I reach retirement age next year and the 8 Girls on stage didn't look if they would be far behind me.

I wouldn't pay 500 Baht to shag any of them, let alone the 4000 Baht the management want. They were replaced after 20 mins by some younger girls but there we're no stunners on show. There was a girl on the other stage with amazing tits but she was in Happy last night.

I think Peppermint was the best a-go-go in town when it was upstairs, but pretty poor now.



Lowering the tone of the area...

News from Soi 8

Link Here18th February 2017
Silver 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 Here17th February 2017
DClub 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 Here17th February 2017
Scotland'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.



One super and one not...

Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Windmill and Super Girl

Link Here15th February 2017

I popped into the Windmill Club on Soi Diamond the other Saturday, and it was a very pleasant experience,

It was very busy but I managed to find a seat.

Lots of attractive Girls, wearing not many clothes.

The girls were very friendly, 2 girls on the mat were calling me over for some pussy licking. I wasn't in the mood but I gave them 50 Baht each for remembering me,

A good place for a beer.

I popped into Super Girl also on Soi Diamond the other day.

I sat at the stage, there were 12 topless girls on the stage, mostly attractive.

I failed to gain eye contact with any of them, after 15 mins, a mamasang came over and asked me if I would like to buy a Girl a drink. I explained that as I was unable to establish contact with any of the Girls, I wouldn't. She spoke to 2 of the girls indicating me and they just laughed.

I finished my draft beer and left. As I reached the door 2 of the girls who were now sitting round a table looked at me. I said it's too late now, and left.

Very strange place, perhaps it was because I was not Chinese?



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 Here15th February 2017

A 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

Link Here12th February 2017
The 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

Link Here10th February 2017
DClub 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.



Beach Music...

Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Shark Club

Link Here3rd February 2017

On Soi 15 not Overmind Club, but Spice Club at the previous location of Beach Club has been renamed SHARK, and this in VERY BIG LETTERS. Apparently they recycled the old signage.

At first sight the interior has remained unchanged.

The dancers went on stage in teams of about ten. At least 80% of them were double-topped and double-bottomed coyotes in black fishnet tights; about 10% were clad in a black string and black fishnet stay-up stockings and about 10% in black fishnet stay-up stockings only, apart from their stilettos that is.

I did not see bikini dancers. As was the case in the last year of the upstairs version of Shark Club A-GoGo, the topless and naked girls were by far the best lookers. I would never waste a penny on one of the overdressed fuglies/fatties.

On a more positive note (literally) the music consisted of rock, beach music and popular hits, such as Tom Jones' Sex Bomb.

The lighting was adequate.

There were not too many customers, but as this place is less spacious than the former upstairs location, it did not strike as much.

One of the mamasans told me she was 45 years old and had been living in Pattaya with her family for 30 years.

Bottled Heineken 150 baht, lady drinks 150 baht.



Come Alone...

Pattaya Bar Reviews: Come Together

Link Here3rd February 2017

On Third Road Soi 33, at the previous location of Le Carré Blanc , Come Together has opened. The entrance is behind the corner now.

The bar counter with some bar stools is near this new entrance. There are some bar stools more along the outer wall (in fact curtains in front of windows), a sofa and a small curtained-off area. No ST rooms. It looked less dark and even sleazier than in its previous incarnation.

I saw four or five old fuglies that I would not even have touched with a bargepole, but that is me. I was told BJ was 500 + 300 baht and FS 1,000 + 300 baht.

The female I spoke to said she had 'men' (menstruation) and hence did only smoke . I would not be surprised if everybody there had 'men' every day of the week. Behind me a gentleman sitting on a bar stool was being smoked .

Unsurprisingly all other patrons appeared to be frogs. (When I was young political correctness was not yet invented and racism was rampant. Our Dutch neighbours were considered clean people (not yet coffee shops by then) and the French the dirtiest bastards on earth, with the possible exception of the Chosen People .

Some sixty years ago our school trips started at 5 or 6 a.m. and consisted of swallowing as many kilometres as possible and as much lemonade as possible. Although there were hardly any motorways by then, the objective was to cover as many provinces as possible. Once it was decided to even cross the French border from the province of Namur.

In those pre-Schengen times it took at least half an hour of negotiations with the customs people before we could cross the border into the village of Givet. After 10 or 20 metres on French soil we were already convinced: France was even dirtier and more underdeveloped than Wallonia.)

Open 2 p.m. until 12 p.m.

Bottled Heineken 95 baht.




Pattaya Bar Reviews: Club Sin

Link Here31st January 2017

On 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 Here29th January 2017
Last 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.




Pattaya Bar Reviews: Velvet Club

Link Here28th January 2017

On the left-hand side of Pattayatai Soi 16 near Soi Bongkod Soi 5 Velvet Club "Bar Club Hôtesses" has opened.

In front, probably because of frequent floods in that area, are three steps leading to the door. As usual this door was opened before I could ring the bell.

The interior is rather stylish.  I was told they have ST rooms upstairs, included in the 300 baht barfine.

The girls were average with the exception of an also overdressed 20-year-old slim girl from Sisaket. Although she was apparently new to the trade and extremely shy, I discovered she had a nice B rack and a tight belly.  I understood that she had kept her shape by breastfeeding her 1-year-old baby. The others said her fee was 1,500 baht, but I declined as her English was so poor that it was impossible to find out the kind of service she would be providing.

The only other customers were some farangs chatting together in the back of the bar.

It would not surprise me if Velvet Club had ownership connections with Geisha Bar off Third Road.

Bottled Heineken 100 baht, lady drinks ("fortified" apple juice) 130 baht.



Soi 6 is pumping...

More new bars

Link Here24th January 2017
A new short time bar, The Pump Station 3, has opened on Soi 6 on 15th January 2017. It is located in the middle section of the soi between Ruby Club and Butterfly Bar. The venue was previously a laundry.

See N39 on Soi 6 map from

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



Singin' the same old song...

Pattaya GoGo Reviews: Sexy Girls A-GoGo

Link Here22nd January 2017

At 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.



Amethyst turned into gold...

Gold Club A-GoGo opens on Soi LK Metro

Link Here21st January 2017
Gold 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...

Cream Club renamed as Casino Cream Club

Link Here14th January 2017
The old Casino Club on Soi Diamond has been gutted and is being taken over by a tailor shop.

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 Here13th January 2017

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

Link Here11th January 2017
The 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.

Meanwhile 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

Link Here7th January 2017

On 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 Here6th January 2017

On 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.

Most 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 Here5th January 2017
Sugar 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

Link Here4th January 2017
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 Here3rd January 2017
The 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 Here2nd January 2017
Shark Club A-GoGo was a long running bar upstairs on Soi Diamond (also with an entrance on Soi 15).

In 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 Here1st January 2017
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.
