Dollhouse Opens XXX VIP Lounge

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

The Dollhouse Go-Go Bar down in Sin City, otherwise known as Pattaya are opening a XXX Vip Lounge. The concept is based upon agogo meets gentlemen’s club, all rolled into one. Knowing these guys there will be a few surprises too.

This Friday, September 22nd is the Soft Opening of the XXX VIP Lounge, which promises to provide plenty of pampering and pleasure! This is a format the Thailand’s nightlife scene should have adopted many years ago.

The concept is to combine the best of East and West, with the raunchy bump ‘n’ grind of Thai gogo dancers and the Western strip club format. The modern day gentlemen’s clubs partly do this, but not entirely.

Daves Raves – I wish The Dollhouse all the best for endeavouring to introduce something fresh to the gogo bar scene in Pattaya.

The Dollhouse is located down Soi 15 Walking Street.

Stickmania (April 13th 2007)

Monday, September 4th, 2017

Written By Dave The Rave

Throughout the infinite realms of time and cyberspace there lurks an extremely powerful amorphous creature that is an almighty force to be reckoned with. This infinite amorphous creature that engulfs many of our lives is the limitless universe of the internet. Although no one person actually owns the internet, Bill Gates has given it a damned good try – bless him! Without any doubt whatsoever the internet has transformed and revolutionized how freely and effectively information is communicated today. Like a giant pouncing tiger the web world leapt into the millennium and multitudes of websites have emerged as a result. Therefore, this transformation has provided us with enormous information resources and that means massive amounts of information about Thailand. In the 1980’s when I first visited Thailand, there was no such online information because of course it did not exist. We simply followed the recommendations of a friend and perhaps read the odd travel guide. How things change hey? Nowadays every budding blogger has jumped on the bandwagon – whether we really want to know about Bill’s fanatical train-spotting, or Mary’s bone-crushing rock cakes! Totally captivating weblogs, or not as the case may be, it is all out there on the internet.

Whether you love or loathe webmaster columnists, there is one Thailand website that stands out predominantly. Crystal clearly Stickman’s website is the most popular of its genre. For many Thailand readers it is an essential information and news source that has its own dedicated cult following. Ever since I first encountered “Stickman’s Guide to Bangkok” I admit that I was hooked. I think that what makes this contagious creature tick is to do with the fact that the enigmatic Stickman is extremely engaging. Some guys have planned their entire Thailand trips and in some cases planned the BIG move from Farangland to Thailand, entirely from Stickman’s website. Without noticing it at first, slowly but surely Stickman draws you into his realm. “Welcome to my lair”, said the spider to the fly. It’s a scary thought isn’t it?

Personally, I for one remain both very pleased and so relieved to see the return of the main sections of Stickman’s website. What I do know is that I speak with great confidence, when I state that I am most certainly not the only person who shares these sentiments. The mighty army of Stickman fans (and a few foes too) were on the edge of their computer seats for four long months, as they were forced to await the outcome of let us say Stickman’s sojourn away from the cyber scene. Did Stickman’s cyberspacecraft come crashing down? No, it did not but the disruption caused by a certain “Stickman Stalker” just goes to prove what a powerful tool or weapon the internet really can be. Time is a great healer though and here we all are again. Although not quite back where we started, nonetheless we continue on our exciting journey through various time zones, and through the infinite realms of cyberspace. We have lift off… “Warp Factor II Captain Stickman!”

THE STRIP GOGO BAR PATPONG SOI 2

If we take a trip back in time a lot of readers would tune in to read Nite Owl, which used to be the ramblings of Bernard Trink. The old Nite Owl penned his weekly column for decades until he was finally axed by the powers that be at the Bangkok Post. Nite Owl had some fans but most people read Trink’s weekly solely in order to seek Thailand nightlife news. As a result of Nite Owl getting the chop there was a dark, void abyss, but then following that exit came the entrance of the modern day Thailand columnist – none other than Stickman. Incidentally, approaching six years ago saw the introduction of the enormously popular “Stickman Weekly” and this new weekly column took off like a cyberspace rocket.

OK, now fast forward to April 2007 and the “cyberspace chameleon” returns, but under another guise – Stick Mark II. Who is this mysterious Stick Mark II? Much speculation surrounds the identity of Stick Mark II, but you can be assured that Stickman will be watching like a hawk. Whether Stickman is editing it, writing it, or not writing it, he has returned and to me that is the main thing.

ANGELWITCH ROCK DANCERS NANA PLAZA

I will let you into a little secret that I persuaded Stickman that the Photo Gallery should be updated. The eagle-eyed among you Stickman fans will notice that a NEW Photo Gallery called “Thailand Characters Photo Gallery 2” has been added. In addition to this latest gallery full of terrific images, the entire Stickman Weekly archived columns for 2006 have returned. This means that avid readers can take a trip back in time to Stickmanland. It would appear that in observing my counterpart, I notice that Stick Mark II (whoever he/she is) has integrated images in with the text in his new weekly column. Stick Mark II’s very first column contained a lovely little travelogue about a sojourn to Isaan, that was complimented by some truly picturesque images. This gives a visual impression of an online magazine – may I say very well done!

On a personal note, as an ambitious newcomer to the web world I want everybody to know that Stickman has been very helpful, offering sound advice. My own website DaveTheRaveBangkok.com was launched in November 2006 and Stickman has been completely unselfish in offering me invaluable advice. Us online columnists/webmasters slave away to update our websites and I can tell you that it takes a HUGE amount of time and effort. As friends of mine have pointed out, we just hope that the masses appreciate this free information service. Take what free information, knowledge, and/or entertainment you can and if you are not satisfied then simply change channel. At times there can be some extremely offensive things written about webmasters, but mostly these “keyboard warriors” are invisible. Who are these people? Of course we like to receive constructive criticism, but “babble from the padded cell” is never useful to anybody whatsoever. It is so easy to “talk the talk” but few dare to “walk the walk” and show us how they think it is supposed to be done. Sometimes there is so much pent up venom in the emails that we cannot possibly comprehend what they are trying to say at all. That is clearly their problem. By all means readers should write constructive criticism to webmasters, but please be clear and specific in the message you are trying to convey.

THE STRIP GOGO BAR PATPONG SOI 2

Running a website about Thailand can often be a mixture of pleasure and pain. However, for the most part we enjoy what we do, because we know that the majority appreciate and welcome our online service. I firmly believe that for all the websites out there, you will not find many very good Thailand websites. In terms of accurate, up-to-date and informative Thailand websites, they remain very few and far between. We should therefore appreciate the likes of Stickman who has diligently churned out a weekly column year after year. Believe somebody in the know, when I say that it is no easy task. This is why I have the utmost respect for Stickman’s dedication and hard work over all these years. Stickman can at times be a controversial columnist, but speaking from experience, as a person Stickman is a real gentleman. As for Stickman’s success, the growth of his readership can only be termed as remarkable. Long live Stickmania!

Stickman’s Thoughts:

Gosh Dave, you have me positively blushing.

But you’re right, maintaining a website is a lot of effort, to say nothing of all of the other parts of our sites. You meet some great people along the journey, and a few ratbags as well. But that is all part of the ride!

Floods Start To Hit Thailand

Sunday, August 27th, 2017

It seems my previous blog post Singing The Bangkok Blues aka Thailand Weather Warning, was very accurate. I certainly did not do a rain dance, as I do not like the rainy season. A bit of rain is okay, but I do mean just a bit.

This photo was taken on Saturday night by my friend Erik, who was down at Sukhumvit Soi 22 in Bangkok. We should learn to expect the unexpected.

Stickman Bids Us Farewell

Sunday, August 20th, 2017

The big Bangkok nightlife news of the week is that Stickman has decided to bow out from penning his weekly column. Thailand’s most famous nightlife columnist has decided to start a new chapter in his life. The news has come as a shock to many people, but while close friends are obviously saddened by the news, they are not really surprised. It’s sad to see my old mate and supporter, Stickman, hang up his journalistic boots. We have been good friends for many years.

The Stickman Weekly column rose in popularity very quickly and became an institution for a multitude of followers across the globe. This most popular online column of its genre started back in April 2001. Coincidentally, we both moved to live in Bangkok that same year, which was almost 20 years ago. Ironically, we both met at Hollywood Carousel Bar on the top floor of Nana Plaza, when I was the manager.

ENTRANCE TO NANA PLAZA BANGKOK 2017

While it is true that some people did not like the way he reported certain aspects of the goings-on in Bangkok, they kept on reading Stickman Weekly. I would say to them, ‘If you dislike Stickman so much, why do you read his column?’ I think I made a fair point, don’t you?

I know some bar and nightclub owners had issues with what he wrote from time to time. But, let’s be honest, so many of us religiously read his weekly column for years and years. Even the Stickman detractors wouldn’t miss it, and that’s because he writes very well and often came up with great articles.

It struck some guys that Stick appeared to be like a fish out of water amid the naughty nightlife scene. I can tell you, Stick is a very health-conscious guy, who never smoked, never took drugs, rarely stayed out late, and rarely ever got drunk. In terms of being a good boy, he is a model farang, if there ever was one. But, Stick is such a talented, articulate writer, and has such a smooth flow of words that he captivates his audience. As Toby said, ‘Many are called to such a path, but few are chosen.’ Just like an addiction, Stick’s cult followers kept coming back for more.

SUKHUMVIT SOI 4 BANGKOK 2017

Stick was a professional schoolteacher and as the saying goes, ‘They teach because they cannot do.’ However, in this case, Stick did do it very well. Perhaps like me, you would like to read his story. Hey Stick, when are you going to write your book?!

Despite his online fame, he has always been polite and showed patience with people. This is particularly true when an extremely excited Dave the Rave would almost talk him to sleep. It was like trying to go the wrong way up a busy one-way street! Joking aside, Stickman always supported and encouraged me throughout my Bangkok nightlife career and also in my efforts to become a photographer and blogger.

Not only could Stickman Bangkok engage his readers, grabbing us with a firm hand, but Sticks always gave the right advice and guidance for anybody visiting Thailand. I remember guys telling me they used his website as a guide book and threw their copies of Lonely Planet into the rubbish bin.

MONSOON SEASON THAILAND 2017

Stick is also a very accomplished photographer. His photographs are exceptional, especially Stick’s special skill at capturing street scenes. I told Stick that his photos are so good he must include them in Stickman Weekly. I felt his photography was underused and underrated, even by Stick himself. This is how all the photos started to appear in his weekly column. I felt the photographs gave it a more interesting magazine look and, of course, we all love some eye candy.

For me, the Thailand online scene will be less interesting without Stickman. In my book, he bows out a legend. I wish you all the very best Stick!

As for the Dave The Rave Barmy Army we keep marching on 🙂

Don’t Worry We’ve Got You Covered

Nana Plaza Beer Garden

As fate has it, just as you approach the neon jungle it hammers down with rain. Well, you don’t have to worry, because the Nana Beer Garden has a large retractable roof. Never fear Nana Beer Garden is here!

Talking of large roofs, you will be completely protected from the rain at the newly opened Rajah Complex. Located further down Soi Nana, the Rajah Complex has a HUGE rooftop. It’s similar to those enormous Petrol Station roofs. While you sit at Hillary 1 Bar getting wet on the inside, you will be dry on the outside.

Another One Bites The Dust

I was not at all surprised to see that Night Witch Bangkok Bar has been completely dismantled inside. Let’s face it there was more atmosphere on the moon. It never took off and I heard from Stickboy that Khun Meow has taken it over. It is thought to become a pool bar. Good news for Soi Nana fans, because Hillary Group are good operators. I wish them good luck.

Still at Rajah Complex (for want of a better name), the Hillary Group recently launched Angels 4 Bar. It is located at the entrance, directly opposite the old Jools Bar. It’s a cosy bar with angels sitting pretty with their halos.

Thailand Weather Warning

Being English, I guess I have that stereotypical obsession for the weather. It’s that time of year again, when the heavens open up and down comes the rain. The Thai authorities are telling us not to ignore flood warnings, especially in certain provinces, where flash floods can and do occur.

MONSOON SEASON IN THAILAND 2017

The rain in Thailand comes down suddenly and within minutes the roads can start to flood. If you ever get caught unprepared in a heavy downpour, you can buy an umbrella and/or a raincoat from the numerous 7 Eleven shops. Also, make sure during the rainy season you have suitable footwear.

Just be prepared, because the worst of the torrential rain is yet to come. The photo below depicts how Thai street vendors protect themselves and their goods against the elements. Rain does not stop play!

HEAVY RAIN EARLIER THIS WEEK ON SUKHUMVIT SOI NANA

Short Time Fun

Friday, June 16th, 2017

Here’s the scenario… You had a great time enjoying the Bangkok nightlife and you met a Thai woman you would like to spend some private time with. But, you do not want to take her back to your place. Well, you are in luck, because Short Time Hotels were invented for just this reason. Check out Short Time Fun for some detailed information about what’s hot and what’s not!

Short Time Fun is your trusted adviser on this specific subject. The concept comprises of an organized listing of Short Time Hotels in the main cities and provinces of Thailand. What is your preference? Is it clean ‘n’ pristine or flirty ‘n’ dirty? Maybe you like lots of mirrors, special lighting, a circular bed, or a Jacuzzi, among other special gadgets. These guys have it listed to help your short time always be a good time. Maps are provided to assist you amid Bangkok’s maze of streets and prices are mentioned, so there will be no unpleasant surprises.

This special website was created by short timers for short timers and if you want you can even contribute to the fellow short time community by submitting your own photos and reports. This will be anonymous of course.

Beside the Website you can visit their Facebook Page

Short Time Fun Motto – “Women need a reason, men just need a place!”

Do You Need A Night Nurse?

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

Like many others, I have been a regular visitor to Spanky’s GoGo Bar for several years now. You may know that I ran Angelwitch Rock Dancers next door for 10 years. I watched Spanky’s develop into one of Thailand’s most popular gogo bars that is has become today. It is simply an iconic gogo bar.

In the early years the shows were very slapstick and corny, but nowadays there is more sophistication in the stage shows. However, the fun ‘n’ frolics still remains, as a major aspect of the appeal. It is an escape from the real world.

Spanky’s GoGo Bar is located on the Middle Level of Nana Plaza.

Soi Nana Closing Times

Monday, March 13th, 2017

Welcome to Bangkok nightlife! The bar scene on Soi Nana has settled back into the “Bangkok buzz” with later closing times.

Most beer bars and pubs in the Nana vicinity close at 2:00 AM sharp, with the exception of a few beer bars. But, there are some other late night options, with the popular gogo bars in Nana Plaza closing at 3:00 AM.

There is also EQ Late Night Club, which usually stays open until at least 4:00 AM. It’s great to see Soi Nana buzzing again!

NO BOOZE AFTER MIDNIGHT TONIGHT

Monday, July 18th, 2016

As many people are already well aware from midnight tonight there will be no drinking allowed in any of the bars, which carries on till Wednesday, due to the Buddhist Lent.

For non Buddhists who are screeching for a pint, there are still places serving alcohol in the Land Of Make-Believe.  Most upmarket hotels are not subject to the booze ban and can still serve at their bars and on Patpong and Silom many bars, and restaurants that serve food can also serve, albeit out of paper cups, or even coffee cups!

The two day Buddhist Holiday  coincides with yet another public holiday today, so for many Thais and expats, this is a five day holiday (counting the weekend), which  will no doubt see a lot of people taking the opportunity to leave town. Hey, can you blame them? With girls and customers lighter on the ground,  it might be a chance to catch up on old friends, finish that book you bought months ago, or try some new venues in a different part of town.

I myself will pop down to Patpong to catch up on  my old friend Guido at the fantastic G’s German restaurant and will likely swing by some of the bars on Patpong including my current favorite The Strip.

Stay tuned, as I will be updating my website more regularly. Thanks for visiting!

LATER CLOSING TIME FOR NANA PLAZA

Friday, March 6th, 2015

An overnight decision by Thai authorities has granted the later closing time of 2:00 am to the gogo bars and beer bars in Nana Plaza. This also includes the beer bars and pubs situated along Soi Nana.

There were false reports that Bangkok nightlife would be shut down at midnight right across the capital, but this was nothing but dubious reporting.

As far as I know the closing time in Nana Plaza is now reverted back to 2:00 am nightly. This looks like good news for fans of Soi Nana and Nana Plaza.

Nana Plaza is now back on a level playing field with Soi Cowboy and Patpong.
