NANA PLAZA GOGO BARS 2017
Nana Plaza GoGo Bars Reviews & Updates
The Master Lease for Nana Entertainment Plaza has been renewed for 10 more years. This totally squashes all the rumours that Nana Plaza was going to be knocked down. Nana Plaza was given a big face-lift with a serious cash injection for a thorough renovation job. Closing time is at least 2:00am nightly.
NANA PLAZA GOGO BARS (GROUND LEVEL)
RAINBOW 1 GOGO BAR
Rainbow 1 GoGo Bar is the first gogo bar on the right-hand side on the ground level, as you enter Nana Plaza. Rainbow 1 is nestled between Play Skool GoGo Bar and Monster Ink Bar. With the advantage of prime location, Rainbow 1 GoGo Bar usually draws the masses on a nightly basis. Several years ago, Rainbow 1 was fully refurbished, which was a welcomed improvement. The current format is continuous gogo dancing in black bikinis. There are no shows in Rainbow 1 GoGo Bar. However, quite a few people would dispute the fact that having so many HOT gogo dancers, is a great show itself. Rainbow 1 is quite a small gogo bar, when you compare it to some bars like Rainbow 4. However, the Dave The Rave Q Factor, or “quantity of quality” is normally very high.
WHAT’S HOT – There are so many attractive gogo dancers in Rainbow 1 that it puts most rival gogo bars to shame. It is worth visiting just for the awesome eye candy!
WHAT’S NOT – It can get very crowded and with it partly being a ‘Jap Trap’ there is the over-generous Japanese clientele to contend with. Some of the gogo dancers prefer to entertain Japanese customers and their prices reflect that. Remember Dave The Rave’s “Famous Fours Factor” – Four inch dick, Four minutes sex, Four thousand baht!
BUTT OUT BUDDY! Rainbow 1 have introduced a strict “NO SMOKING” policy, which will make a HUGE difference to everybodies health. It is much more comfortable now that the Japanese are not blowing up a storm.
RAINBOW 2 GOGO BAR
When entering Nana Plaza, you will find Rainbow 2 GoGo Bar in the far right corner. Rainbow 2 sits in-between Obsession GoGo Bar on the left and London Calling on the right. Rainbow 2 GoGo Bar was the first offspring of the four Rainbow sisters. It is a medium sized go-go bar, which is mostly populated by a Japanese clientele. Westerners should be aware of this fact, because the majority of Rainbow 2 gogo dancers do prefer Japanese men.
BUTT OUT BUDDY! Rainbow 2 have introduced a strict “NO SMOKING” policy, which will make a HUGE difference to everybodies health. It is much more comfortable now that the smokers are not blowing up a storm.
Rainbow 1 and Rainbow 4 remain more popular, but Rainbow 2 still ticks over a fair trade. It possibly remains Rainbow Groups biggest ‘Jap Trap’ out of the four Rainbow GoGo Bars. This means that prices and preferences are steered towards Japanese customers. Some Westerners do take girls from Rainbow 2 but you do have to know what you are getting into. One of the problems that Rainbow 2 faces is that it lives in the shadow of big brother, namely Rainbow 4.
SPELLBOUND GOGO BAR
Spellbound was known previously as Pretty Lady and it is the large gogo bar located next to Suckers. Designed and ran by the creator of Angelwitch this is a popular show bar. Showtime commences nightly at 10:00pm until late, with professionally choreographed shows. Spellbound is a spacious gogo bar with 160 seats and has a uniquely designed gogo stage, which is in the shape of a cross. Spellbound rapidly became popular with its party atmosphere, aesthetic stage shows and has an eclectic selection of music. This modern show bar has some of the hottest gogo dancers and showgirls in Bangkok.
UNDERGROUND GOGO BAR
Formerly known as Voodoo GoGo Bar this was at one time a very popular place. Although Voodoo was not a big bar, it used to draw large crowds of revelers. In fact, Voodoo once ranked alongside the very best gogo bars in Bangkok. Alas, those good old days were years ago. Full bikinis and no entertainment apart from the ’Skytrain Shuffle’ does nothing to entice guys to wander inside. Incidentally, Voodoo is the gogo bar that features in Stephen Leather’s bestselling Thailand nightlife novel Private Dancer. In the book Private Dancer it appears as Zombie Bar and it is based upon a true story.
New owners have taken over the old defunct Voodoo and Renamed it Underground GoGo Bar but after only a short period Underground was forced to close. The bar is available for rent and remains closed.
NANA PLAZA GO-GO BARS (MIDDLE LEVEL)
ANGELWITCH GOGO BAR
The former co-owners of Angelwitch are the pioneers of the most professionally choreographed go-go bar stage shows in Thailand. Internet columnist ‘Baron Bonk’ rated the Angelwitch stage shows equally as good as Crazy Horse in Paris. As proof of the popularity Angelwitch GoGo Bar was voted ‘Best GoGo Bar In Bangkok’ for 3 consecutive years. In addition, Angelwitch attracts a good crowd at Showtime and has done for almost a decade. This is one gogo bar that remains consistently busy all year round. It is quite simply a gogo bar for all seasons; come rain or shine Angelwitch attracts the crowds. During the past few months Angelwitch has taken on a number of new gogo dancers. Also, there are some new faces among the Showgirls, which will help to embellish the stage shows. Currently Showtime starts at 10:00 PM and runs for at least 3 hours nightly.
Despite a drop in bar trade across Thailand, Angelwitch GoGo Bar remains popular at Showtime (10:00 PM until late). Angelwitch has taken on a considerable amount of new gogo dancers. The dance format is mono bikinis. Nowadays, there is certainly more to see in Angelwitch. Some more new shows have appeared amid the Bangkok Broadway repertoire.
Several new faces have refreshed the line-up of the Angelwitch Showgirls. A number of resident Showgirls are present every week. Several Showgirls have stopped working, but the new faces are refreshing replacements. Recently, some new shows have been added to the repertoire to spice it up. A number of wives and girlfriends accompany their men, because Angelwitch will ‘tease’ rather than ‘sleaze’ the audience. Angelwitch is the best choice in Thailand, if you want to see professionally produced stage shows.
CASANOVA GOGO BAR
This is a classic “Dude looks like a lady” gogo bar. There are some of the tallest katoeys in Bangkok in this small gogo bar. Be aware that whatever your mates tell you, they are ALL ladyboys, and bloody big buggers they are too! Whatever you may think, they all have the full landing gear down below!
LADYBOY ALERT – The katoeys in Casanova can be very hands-on. Be warned!
DC-10 GOGO BAR
This is a tiny gogo bar that sits in-between Sexy Night GoGo Bar and Casanova GoGo Bar. DC-10 GoGo Bar is not known for very glamorous gogo dancers, but the DJ plays some classic rock music. The DC-10 gogo girls get down and dirty, with a particularly ‘hands-on’ approach!
EROTICA CHILI BAR
Formerly Mercury GoGo Bar, this quiet gogo bar was sold to the owners of Erotica GoGo Bar. The new owners have renovated it and turned it into Erotica Chili Bar. Is the chili hot enough for you?
HOT LIPS GO-GO BAR
Located next to Temptations Go-Go Bar on the right-hand side on the middle level is Hot Lips Gogo Bar. Formerly owned by Nana Group it has recently been sold to a new owner. The former Fantasia GoGo Bar was badly in need of renovation and the new owners have given it a big facelift.
LAS VEGAS GOGO BAR
Located next to Billboard on the top level of Nana Plaza. Previously this was known as Hollywood Strip (Hollywood 2) and was closed down for several years. The Nana Group who also own Angelwitch Pattaya, Angelwitch Bangkok, DC 10, Billboard and Nana Liquid Disco, have brought this go-go bar back to life. Las Vegas style decor makes this one of the best furbished and designed go-go bars in Thailand. In addition, it features all the glitz ‘n’ glam of Las Vegas, with professionally choreographed show routines. Furthermore, the go-go girls are top class eye candy, which impresses even those who are very fussy about pussy!
MANDARIN GOGO BAR
Located directly ahead of you, as you step off the escalator. Mandarin GoGo Bar has ownership connections with Mandarin Table Dance and Shark GoGo Bar in Soi Cowboy. Although Mandarin is a small go-go bar, it is split into two levels. Mandarin stopped its popular Happy Hour, but it still has some lovely gogo dancers. The gogo girls in Mandarin tend to be more attractive and younger than most of the gogo bars in Nana Plaza. Check it out!
The top level of Mandarin is not operational, because Mandarin doesn’t have enough gogo girls to operate both levels. However, they do have a good line-up of enthusiastic young dolly birds. Well worth checking out, especially when the ‘students’ are dancing. Currently has a very good line-up of sexy hot babes. Among the most attractive gogo dancers in Nana Plaza can be found here. Well worth a visit for babe hunters!
UPDATE – Now operates with a mixture of gogo dancers and coyote dancers with different priced bar fines.
MANDARIN TABLE DANCE BAR
Mandarin Table Dance is under the same ownership as Mandarin GoGo Bar and Shark GoGo Bar in Soi Cowboy. With the table dance format this little gogo bar does make a bit of a change to the norm. On a good night Mandarin Table is a fun place with lively dolly birds doing the tabletop bop!
Has a bunch of sexy, young gogo girls. If you don’t like crowds and customer competition, this place is ideal. One of the more underrated gogo bars in terms of Thai girl talent.
MERCURY GOGO BAR
Until it was sold several years ago, Mercury used to be situated on the left-hand side of the middle level. This has since become Erotica Chili Bar. New owners of Mercury GoGo Bar relocated it next to Mandarin Table Dance. The new Mercury was expended and a shower unit installed. This small gogo bar is making a comeback and has become more popular recently. It now operates with a mixture of gogo dancers and coyote dancers.
UPDATE – Still has a collection of farang friendly sexy Thai girls. Worth a visit.
RAINBOW 3 GOGO BAR
Rainbow 3 GoGo Bar is located next to Straps Bar on the left-hand side as you walk to the top of the concrete staircase. Rainbow 3 is the least popular of the four Rainbow GoGo Bars.
Rainbow 3 usually has a fairly good line-up and a number of the gogo dancers are farang friendly. Worth a visit for the babe hunters, as it is not so much of a Jap Trap.
RAINBOW 4 GOGO BAR
The mighty Rainbow 4 GoGo Bar is located in the far right corner on the middle level in Nana Plaza. Rainbow 4 is situated between Candy Land and Temptations GoGo Bar. Following a buy out, Rainbow 4 took over the space occupied by Woodstock Bar and Rosemarie Bar. Therefore, this is a BIG gogo bar. Inside there are two gogo stages, which houses one of the largest numbers of gogo dancers inside four walls in Thailand. In terms of the Dave The Rave Q Factor (a quantity of quality), Rainbow 4 GoGo Bar is a “must see” whenever you explore Bangkok’s naughty nightlife. It is the ultimate “analysis paralysis” go-o bar experience! Rainbow 4 GoGo Bar is deemed by many, as the best gogo bar in Thailand. In terms of eye candy, Rainbow 4 is truly awesome!
WHAT’S HOT – What could not be HOT about two gogo stages packed with dancing dolls? At its peak, Rainbow 4 has to have no less than FOUR shifts of gogo girls. This is incredible in itself, when you consider that most gogo bars have only two shifts of gogo dancers. The sheer amount of eye candy on display makes it a most impressive pleasure palace. Many guys consider rainbow 4, as more “farang friendly” than the other three Rainbow GoGo Bars. A number of the gogo dancers will go with Westerners.
WHAT’S NOT – The design layout looks like a blind man created it. Unfortunately, there is nowhere to view both gogo stages fully. You can sit in the isle between the two gogo stages and turn your head from side to side as if you are at a tennis match. Or, you can pay your bar bill and move around the bar with drink in hand.
UPDATE – Still going strong with a lot of gogo dancers on the books. There are slightly less Japanese customers, so Rainbow 4 is also popular with Westerners. Some of the gogo girls wear full bikinis, others wear mono bikinis. Rainbow 4 is still very high on quantity with two stages packed with gogo girls. The Bangkok babe hunters all tell me that Rainbow 4 has dropped a bit in terms of quality, but remains high on quantity.
SEXY NIGHT GOGO BAR
This very small, but lively gogo bar sits in-between Angelwitch GoGo Bar (left) and DC-10 GoGo Bar (right). The DJ plays some excellent classic rock music. A real treat if you like classic tracks from previous decades. Sexy Night tends to resemble a single mothers club, but the gogo dancers are very farang friendly.
Occasionally has a few attractive gogo girls, but it is hit, or miss in terms of Thai girl talent. Sexy Night does have a following and generally a more mature clientele. The rock music makes a refreshing change to the techno trash!
SPANKYS GOGO BAR
Spankys GoGo Bar is situated on the left-hand side next to Angelwitch GoGo Bar. Although small in comparison to some gogo bars, Spankys has brought fun ‘n’ frolics back to Nana Plaza. It also features sexotic shows on a nightly basis. Spankys was refurbished a while ago, with more comfortable sofa seats and a purpose-built shower unit.
UPDATE – Spankys has loaded up with go-go girls and are doing a brisk trade. Upon entering, be prepared to get a spanking Spankys style! Still very busy on a nightly basis.
NANA PLAZA GO-GO BARS (TOP LEVEL)
BILLBOARD GOGO BAR
An exciting new addition to Nana Plaza that is drawing large crowds, especially on the weekends. Formerly known as Hollywood Carousel, this newly renovated and reopened go-go bar still has the famous rotating go-go stage, with an overhead shower unit. Another unique feature to the go-go bar scene is the only Jacuzzi in Bangkok. Billboard features young sexy Thai girls in their birthday suits in the ultimate bird bath! The music is upbeat dance style and the atmosphere is somewhat reminiscent of the Pattaya go-go bar scene.
Billboard now has a noticeably improved line-up of go-go girls, plus some of the hottest showgirls in town. The bubble bath babes are a big hit and the installation of the Jacuzzi was a masterstroke.
CHARADES GOGO BAR
Formerly known as Cascade GoGo Bar this is a popular ladyboy gogo bar. The newly named Charades GoGo Bar boasts a big line-up of ladyboys that come in all styles, shapes and sizes. Charades GoGo Bar is located in the right-hand corner opposite Bubbles GoGo Bar.
For those that wish to see a ladyboy cabaret show, Charades do a few shows on a nightly basis. Nothing more than the lip mime shows, but some of the tourists seem to like it.
EROTICA GOGO BAR
Erotica GoGo Bar is located on the left-hand side of the stairs that lead onto the top floor. Erotica Go-Go Bar has two levels and also “bonking booths,” or short time rooms as they are commonly called. Recently Erotica has taken on some very polite and efficient service girls from Mandarin Go-Go Bar. Other girls including some go-go dancers from Mandarin have also joined Erotica. Currently, Erotica has a replenished line-up and there are a few very attractive dolly birds to be found. Erotica still run a Happy Hour up until 9:00pm, where standard drinks are only 80 Baht. Erotica appear to be operating on one level, which does help to enhance the atmosphere. If a go-go bar is struggling to operate on two levels, because of a shortage of go-go dancers, it makes sense to combine the girls onto one stage.
Erotica has had a thorough renovation and does still have some lovely dolly birds. However, it can be hit, or miss depending on when you visit. Bottles of Carlsberg are available for ONLY 95 baht all night.
