This week is the quietest I have noticed Bangkok’s Red Light Districts this year. Before when I heard talk of it being quiet things didn’t add up whilst I was out and about, it wasn’t quiet it was comfortable. As a customer I found plenty of bargirls in the beer bars and just enough customers to give the bar a bit of an atmosphere. This is a tourists dream come true if they want to have some fun with the ladies.
I could head into a number of go-
It’s a different story for the owners of the bars since they want a steady stream of tourists all year round. There is no need whinging about it. With any business you should know times are going to be tough during the low season, therefore you plan ahead accordingly for the whole year. The amount of revenue the bars make during high season if managed correctly should be more than enough to see them through the lean times. If not then they more than likely have a poor bar or they have made a fatal mistake of signing a lease beforehand where the rent is unreasonably high per month.
The best beer bars/go-
This Wednesday night when I arrived Nana Soi 4 (9:45 pm) the first bar I came across was the Morning Night Bar (cool bar) which was doing okay but the next bar Stumble Inn was the quietest I have ever seen this bar. All I saw was bargirls and waitresses standing/sitting around. At BigDogs you could get the best seats to hangout and people watch your night away. K&S Bar was quiet, even Hooters looked down on numbers. The Tiki Bar which is positioned well as you enter Nana Plaza had enough customers inside due to their location.
The Nana Beer Garden was super quiet yet Bangkok Bunnies outside bar was busy. You will notice a familiar theme going on here and that is, the better bars are doing okay during low season and the rest are not. I headed up to Billboard who have a new neon sign (looks good). I went inside for about an hour, of course they are busy. The women in the Jacuzzi are in fine form tonight with plenty of energy and looked very erotic. I don’t know how any single guys can hack it without barfining one of them? After watching the show you can’t tell me you just go home and sleep….FFS.
