An Honest Review of Bars @ Nana Plaza, Soi Cowboy, Patpong & Pattaya…
All GoGo bar reviews will be told just how I see it on the night at the most visited nightlife destinations Nana Plaza, Soi Cowboy, Patpong and Pattaya... No Bias! During high season I can go out any night and get a good indication of how well a gogo bar is performing. In low season I will try stick to Thursday, Friday & Saturday since these are the busiest nights. If you're planning a trip to Bangkok or Pattaya then spend sometime reading through the reviews. That way you will know which bars to avoid and which are a must see.
Coming to Soi Cowboy for the first time can be a bit daunting with all the bright lights and the Go-
The Dollhouse Soi Cowboy Bangkok
It’s best to have one walk through then take a seat at one of the outside bars at The Dollhouse,Jungle Jim’s or Suzie Wongs where you can sit and take it all-
Soi Cowboy Bangkok is located just opposite to Terminal 21 Shopping Center and is less than 100 meters from Sukhumvit Road between Asok Road and Sukhumvit Soi 23. The Skytrain Station BTS: Asok and the MRT Station: Sukhumvit are both within easy walking distance to Soi Cowboy.
Nana Plaza Bangkok (Nana Entertainment Plaza) is located within walking distance from BTS: Nana Skytrain Station. Exit the station and walk approximately 200 meters to Sukhumvit Soi 4.
Nana Plaza Bangkok
Nana Plaza is located a short distance on the LHS along Sukhumvit Soi 4 Nana. The first time you go to Nana Plaza it can be a bit overwhelming let alone walking down Soi 4. Be careful going in for a massage along Soi 4 when you first arrive as you might walk out feeling a little lighter and I am not talking about your wallet. I'm sure you didn't come all this way just to have some chick tug on your rope for 5 minutes.
When you go into most bars women will be coming over wanting to chat and of course buy them a drink. This is normal as it’s how they make money from lady drinks. If you like her then buy a drink, you might end up having a night to remember. If you’re not interested then you’d better learn how to get rid of them quick.
I like to have a quick scan around the bar and see if anyone interest me, if so ask them over for a drink. Have some fun, why else go there? Oh yeah drink well there's plenty of places to do that within Nana Plaza Bangkok and along Soi 4.
Pattaya City is located by the sea and is home to some of the best gogo bars in Thailand. With reasonably priced Hotels scattered along or close to Beach rd means you wont be far from Pattaya's premier gogo bar location, Walking Street.
Pattaya Walking St Entrance
Spend your day within one of the many beer bars that are scattered through out the area. You will find plenty of bargirls to keep you entertained. Getting there is easy just hop on a bus from Bangkok which departs every half hour and in less than 2 hours you will be in Pattaya.
Patpong Soi 1 and 2 are both located between Silom and Surawong Rd's Bangkok. Catch the Skytrain to BTS Sala Daeng and then walk to Patpong 1 Night Market which is within 200 meters of the station walking away from direction of BTS Siam.
At Patpong, go-
Patpong 1 is where the Night Market is and can get very busy as you try and stroll through. There is a bit of edginess to Patpong 1 which is cool. Patpong 2 is quiet as you walk through with a totally different feel to Patpong 1. They do have some cool gogo bars though.
You shouldn’t have any problems finding decent accommodation. All within easy walking distance of your favored location. By booking online you will find discounts available that you wont have access to if trying to book in person. There are plenty of good 3 star Hotels around the US$40/£25.
