I’ve spent an ungodly number of hours and even more Baht in Bangkok’s world renown go go bars. While I no longer favor them as pick up destinations I still drop in from time to time if for no other reason than to get a little entertainment. Based on my most recent visits I’ve come up with my list of the five best go go bars in Bangkok.
Baccara located in Soi Cowboy is one of the most well known go go bars in all of Bangkok for a reason. A huge number of women work at Baccara and many of them are beautiful. The place also has some of the best shows of any go go bar which adds value for those who enjoy that kind of entertainment. It’s not the best bar to simply walk in chose a woman to take out but bar fines are definitely available. It can also get crowded to the point that it can even be difficult to find a seat at prime time.
Rainbow 2 located on the ground floor of the Nana Entertainment Plaza (NEP) is one of four Rainbow bars situated in the complex. Rainbow 4 is without question the biggest and the best and it has an entire stage filled where women who mostly have great tits dance topless. The problem is that the place fills up quickly and frequently to the point that it can be impossible to find a seat. On top of that the staff openly and obviously favors East Asian clientele. Although it doesn’t have as many women working Rainbow 2 is more comfortable. More than a few women make their way from one Rainbow bar to another so patient guys don’t necessarily have to lose out just because they don’t want to sit crammed between two drunken Japanese guys smoking acrid cigarettes. Some people claim that Westerners can get a better shake at Rainbow 4 than Rainbow 2 (or 1 or 3) but that has not been my experience.
Club Electric Blue is located in Patpong. The Patpong area isn’t so hot anymore but Club Electric Blue is a clear exception. There are always a huge number of women working the stage and the floor at the bar and the vast majority of them are good looking which is something that many other go go bars can no longer say. While some drinks are more expensive than they are at other go go bars the beers and the barfines are reasonable. Plus the bar actually seems to be geared toward barfines rather than simply pushing drinks and sucking out as much cash as they can.
The Strip is also located in Patpong only a few steps away from Club Electric Blue. There aren’t as many women working at The Strip but there is an equal ratio of hot women in their 20’s which is always good to see when some bars seem happy to fill the stage with 35 year old women with saggy tits and stretch marks. Without a doubt the best feature of The Strip is the presence of large private booths right next to the stage where customers can take dancers for only a few hundred Baht. What goes on in the booths stays in the booths but most people can probably figure it out without burning too many braincells. This is a great place for lazy bums, guys who stay in budget hotels and those who simply like to get one off before heading off to a main event elsewhere.
Crazy House is probably the best go go bar in Bangkok at the moment. Located on Sukhumvit Soi 23 just around the corner from Soi Cowboy the bar isn’t much to speak of on its own. If there were no ladies inside it would be just another in a long line of dives. But there are ladies inside and they are mostly smoking hot. On top of that the women dance fully nude which unfortunately isn’t as common as it used to be in Thai agogos. There is a large stage that is always filled with women and lots of seats scattered around. Apparently there is even an upper level but I’ve never made it up there or seen any reason too with such amazing action on the ground floor. Bar fining goes off without a hitch though it can be tough to track down a waitress in all of the hubbub and an abundance of nearby short time hotels make everything even easier.
Honorable mention goes to Suckers in Nana which was formerly called Lollipop. The bar isn’t anything special and the barfine is 700 Baht which is higher than the usual 500 or 600 Baht but a handful of women with absolutely amazing bodies that aren’t always apparent through their bikinis work there. Numbers 14, 21 and 22 come to mind. Erotica at the very top of the stairs to the left when you enter Nana Plaza also deserves a mention since some very incredible looking women work there. Oh boy!
