Located on the top floor of Nana Plaza is Charades Bar one of Bangkok's most well known ladyboy bars. When you enter Charades you notice straight away it’s large and they have filled the space well with a large dance floor set in what appear to be boulders to give the appearance that you are in a cave that's the impression I had.
The bench seats are on the RHS and are tiered like in a stadium. There were around ten ladyboys dancing and another five wondering around until I walked in, now its play the pick me game again which I just ignored until I ordered a drink 150 Baht for a whiskey. I'm getting to know the game at Ladyboy bars now therefore it’s time to look at the who’s who in this zoo. First up I have a look at the bar staff. There are a few horrors and they can be quite pushy wanting a drink especially when you finally have a drink with one of the dancers.
Now to the ladyboys all in their bikinis and out of the fifteen I'm looking at around five you can tell are 100% a dude! Seven of them you do need to look twice and then you know they’re a ladyboy. That leaves three that from 10 ft away look like a real woman. One in particular looked all woman no breast implants and has all the curves in the right spots. We have a winner so I call her over… She actually seemed really surprised getting picked and at 160 Baht a lady drink it’s well worth it just to have a chat.
Charades Gogo Bar Ladyboys
If I ever saw her on the BTS Skytrain and at around 155 cm then I would think she is a regular Thai lady. The first question that I asked was how old she is? I really was expecting the game to be over with some dudes voice talking back at me… but no it was still all female as she said ‘23’… Impressive so far.
Now feeling like a hero that I might have picked the only real female in Charades. I said your breasts are real … She said ‘yeah I take hormones’ HA HA…. F meee … ok so you got a d..k then? Of coarse the answer was yes!
Charades also has a Jacuzzi at the back of the dance floor which was being filled with bubbles when I was there although no one jumped in. Music was only coming out of one speaker which does take a lot away from songs being played.
A barfine is 700 Baht, with the wide selection of dancers here and you’re into ladyboys then you should find one to your liking.
Charades Bar Nana Plaza Bangkok 6/10.
