Bangkok Go-Go Bars Filling Up with Coyote Dancers

A simple rule of thumb is that coyote dancers 
are supposed to perform best on the dance floor.  
Gogo girls save their best performances for the bedroom.
They are primarily dancers i.e. entertainers, but they may be available.
It varies from bar to bar, girl to girl.

Kasalong - A New BJ Bar in Bangkok

A new BJ bar will open next Sunday, March 9th, between Sukhumvit sois 6 and 8.  To be called Kasalong - the sign has yet to go up - it is the brainchild of an ex-Lolita's employee.  Kasalong is just around the corner from Lolita's and less than 10 metres from the entrance to S6 Hotel - which until recently was known as Crown Hotel.  There will be a pool table on the ground floor, but the real action will take place upstairs.  The decor is said to be nice but if it doesn't blow you away, the girls certainly will.  Standard service will run 700 baht with full service also available.


Another one worth noting has been open for a little over a year is Som's Haven.
If you walk on the side of Sukhumvit Road with the even numbers, there will come a street named Sukhumvit Soi 14. You turn into that street and in about 20 meter there will be a small alley on the right side. Walk inside and about 50 meters in front you will see the Som`s Haven bar on the left side.  
The girls are friendly and the atmosphere is relaxed, not pushy and very open.

Coyote Dancers at Angelwitch 2

Coyote Dancers can now be found inside the ground floor
Angelwitch 2 and at top floor Wild Thing at Nana Plaza.
Coyote Dancers are typically better dancers,
more fun to watch, but are usually not available 
to be barfined.

Big Mango Bar is now the M Bar

The old Big Mango Bar in Bangkok just off of Soi 4 (Soi Nana) will reopen in the next week as the M Bar, a sister bar to The M Pub at the Ascott Hotel in Sathorn Road.  It will be operated by the same owner of The Pintsman in Silom, formerly the Duke of Wellington.  

Major renovations have taken place and upstairs is now open with windows and natural light.  It's not a girlie bar so there will be no hookers - at least none working or based on the premises and no drink quotas.  

The new owners promise good food, live sport on TV and free pool.

Bangkok Shutdown 1-13-14

 Soi Cowboy is just to the left.

Asoke Intersection was full of people by 8am.

Asoke intersection closed by protesters went into the night.

I wasn't sure if Soi Cowboy would open but it did.  
That said it was VERY quiet, quieter than I have ever seen it 
with few girls and few customers.

The Girls in Spanky's Go Go Bar at Nana Plaza

Stickman gives Spanky's GoGo Bar inside Nana Plaza a big thumbs up,
a fun bar with some fun girls.  Check it out,
to see more images, click on

editor note: I usually don't like Spanky's because of the noise they make
by hitting things with the insulation tubing, and the degree of cigarette smoke.

A Facebook Conversation about the Old Nana Plaza Days

I'm still waiting for the novel set in the new Nana Plaza with the character reminiscing about the bars that are gone. ie Woodstock, Hogs Breath, Big Mango; one now a closed bar with a bucking steer, Spanky's expanded into Hogs Breath displacing the expats, an upscale shorttime rooms in place of pool tables, and now there's 2 Angelwitches, and what's up with all of the ladyboys? Hanging out with Meow as she manages 11 beer bars in the Nana area, and the re-opening of G-Spot as a Gentleman's club. A little tongue in cheek history of Nana in novel form. You can do it Chris.

Write a classic book with all you have mentioned ...I'll buy it !!!
Superb insight mate, love it !!

I also have fond memories of taking a leak at Angelwitch and to my surprise having the showgirls walk directly behind me on their way to their dressing room.

Throw in some Clinton plaza ( whitehouse etc.) And some washington square and jaunt across asok to soi 33....brilliant
I like it !

Aye, many a time bathroom change.   

Thermea...oh dear ....classic Bangkok...brilliant reading and I haven't even read it yet ! LOL !!

DC 10....the oldest bar in nana ( which chris has already mentioned in one of his novels as a starting point of chapters.)

Now you can have a drink while sitting along side a jacuzzi with 4 Thai girls trying to keep covered with only soap bubbles. Some old guy walks in and tips a 1,000 baht to be shared among the girls in the tub as he does a jig. The loan shark guy comes in with his book of records, checking up on some of his inflated loans. The busty one acknowledges him a few minutes after we had already made eye contact. After her stint in the tub she waits at the bar behind me. I glance over at her and then glance at the business being conducted at the end of the bar, thinking that she might be the money man's squeeze. She turns her head as to say no, and smiles, wanting some attention....   

I could write a book of my exploits but haven't the time ...

Changes Inside Nana Plaza

The grand opening for Wild Thing (briefly known as Tokyo Player and Las Vegas A Go-Go before that) on the top floor of Nana Plaza will take place on Tuesday, December 17th.  There will be a free lap dance for every customer who buys a lady drink - I expect some girls are going to be quite busy. (Looks like they painted the stage floor, the Las Vegas gambling table design has gone to white.)

 The revamped G Spot is due to open in mid-January and could see something of a change of direction with word that it's going to be more akin to a gentleman's club than a gogo bar per se.  The word is that the bar will feature sofas and a more comfortable style of seating than is typically found in gogo bars, and be run by the people at The Pimp.

Fantasia in Nana Plaza will soon be known by another name and the bar is undergoing some minor renovations.  The bar has taken on new sexy dancers and on Wednesdays and Fridays they wear sexy, fantasy costumes.  They have also started nightly shows.

The Go-Go Club Electric Blue 10th Anniversary

The Club Electric Blue in Patpong is celebrating its 10th anniversary. Come and check it out  if this place is still rocking in this naughty area in Bangkok.

Patpong is one of the world’s most famous red light districts. This is where the Thai Go-Go Culture started and became hot. And even though the area has a bit of a dodgy reputation right nowadays – thank you rip off bars! – there are still some great go go bars around that make it worth visiting.
Club Electric Blue is one of them and located on Patpong Soi 2, next to Foodland.

Dean Barrett Guide to Soi Cowboy

Writer Dean Barrett walks thru Soi Cowboy, describing the scene.

  " I was innocently walking down Soi Cowboy and Jimmy Corr 
saw me while he was photographing them and had me pose with them. 
Nothing happened. I swear!"
