Mercury Go-Go Bar Party Pics

Sunday, November 5th, 2017

Last Friday, Mercury Go-Go Bar decided to throw a party, which just happened to coincide with the Loy Krathong Festival. Well, it was Loy Krathong with a twist…

If you are behind on the latest gogo gossip, Mercury Bar has turned 50 Shades of Pink by changing the format to ladyboys. With them all sporting the full landing gear, it’s certainly a radical change! But, well run ladyboy bars can be very profitable and making money is the name of the game.

The gogo dancers began the party dressed very elegantly in stylish evening dresses, making a pleasant change to the norm. The party theme attracted a good crowd and one customer cheerily commented, “It makes me feel like I’m on a date.”

Mercury Ladyboy Bar has generously donated money towards the forthcoming charity fundraising event down in Pattaya. The Annual Charity Ladyboy Water Volleyball Tournament will be held at Areca Lodge, Soi Diana, Pattaya on Saturday, November 11th from 1:00 PM.

This special event will raise money for Pattaya Orphanage and two other deserving Thai charities. So far, the LBWVB charity donations total over 3,500,000฿ since 2008 which I think you will agree is fantastic.

Full details about LBWVB can be found HERE

Dollhouse Pattaya Opens 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.

Dollhouse Pattaya - Dollhouse Pattaya Opens VIP Lounge

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 certainly 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!”

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.

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.

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!

Don’t Worry We’ve Got You Covered

Sunday, August 20th, 2017

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!

Big Night On Patpong This Friday

Wednesday, March 29th, 2017

This Friday, March 31st should be a good night to hit Patpong as there is the 10 Year Anniversary Party of The Strip Bar, the 11 Year Anniversary Party of BarBar Fetish Club and it is Dan’s Birthday Bash at Electric Blue.

I have also been hearing good things about the Dragon’s Head next to Foodland. The small venue, formally G’s German Restaurant, is now a live music venue hosting some really good bands.  They recently started doing Chinese Food from the Golden Bowl, which is well known and has all the classic Western Style Chinese dishes.   Craft cocktails and special imported beers are on offer, with Singha Draft Beer at just 69฿ before 9:00 PM.  This is a great place for guys who want to relax and not get hassled for lady drinks.

BarBar Fetish Club, next to The Strip, will be putting on some special shows and there will be a free glass of bubbly for patrons.  Bangkok legends like Dean Barrett will probably be around, as this club is well know among the old hands.

Apparently new carpet has been fitted and one, or two of the girls there at the moment are hotter than mustard. Check out Mai… What a cracker!!!

mai at barbar fetish club

The Strip of course will be pumping it for their 10 Year Anniversary and my old mate and former co-owner Toby will  also be around.  There is a glass of bubbly on offer there for well wishers and it will be a chance to catch up with some old faces and Patpong regulars.

the strip patpong

Dan’s Birthday Bash at Electric Blue has its own Facebook event so well wishers can check in and let them know you are coming. They are offering 10฿ Tequila Shots, which is a real bargain in this day and age, and  they will likely be pushing the boat out, so there should be a good lineup of talent at all the venues this Friday.

If you see a bald bloke with a camera  having a good time… It’s probably me 🙂

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!
