HOLLYWOOD INN HOTEL NANA PLAZA BANGKOK

PAVEMENT PUB PATROL IN BANGKOK’S CONCRETE JUNGLE

Nowadays, taking a late night stroll down lower Sukhumvit Road is very different to what it used to be years ago. A continuous row of makeshift mobile bars set up shop after midnight along lower Sukhumvit, right on the roadside. The pavement pubs stretch from Sukhumvit Soi 3/1, right along towards Sukhumvit Soi 19. Some of the pavement pubs sell booze from around midnight until cockcrow. Most of the pavement pubs charge 80 baht for a standard drink, which is reasonable enough.  However, this concrete jungle is a dodgy place, with various creatures of the night on the prowl.  (more…)

  • DAVES RAVES – This Christmas Thailand did not have the tourist troops marching in as expected. None of the beach resorts in Thailand were particularly busy for the time of year. Hopefully New Year’s Eve will be busier.
  • BIRTHDAY BOY – My website celebrates its 3rd Anniversary. Thanks for your loyal support over the years, it is always appreciated. Cheers! (more…)

NANA PLAZA – ENTER THE NEON JUNGLE

Builders have been working around the clock to get the refurbishment finished in Spankys.  A brand new section of sofa seats not only makes it more comfortable, but it has increased the seating capacity.  It is a fact that Spankys is about 100% more popular now than when the Iranian owned it.

THAILAND NIGHTLIFE REPORTING

Last week I mentioned an increase in bar trade in Bangkok and Pattaya. But, I deliberately did not state exactly how much of an increase. It would be wrong to state that everywhere is doing a brisk trade. But then again, it would also be incorrect to assume that everywhere is dead. Generally, the most popular bars always keep their heads well above water, whereas the unpopular bars always struggle. For example, if you walk into two bars and they are both quiet, you could be misled into thinking that the whole vicinity is dead. You might possibly be right. But, what if those particular bars are always dead? OOPS! You have wrongly assessed that area, especially if other bars are doing a brisk trade. Therefore, creating an accurate picture is never that simple. As a former social worker, I was instructed not to assume. This “ass-u-me” translates as, “Never make an ass of you or me.” If every bar in a particular area is quiet, then there is the answer… (more…)

Later Closing Times Are Reinstated In Bangkok

AFTER DARK ASIAOnce again, later closing times have been reinstated across the nightspots in Bangkok.  While some people might not care either way, later closing times are essential for Bangkok’s nightlife industry.  Foreign visitors and expat residents alike want to go out and enjoy themselves.  Regarding the bar owners, less trading hours means considerably less takings.  It is no fun going along to your favourite bar only to see the boys in brown close it early.  Similar to any other country, the nightlife areas do not get going until later on in the evening.  Most people are looking to hit the town after their meal and some relaxation time.  We humans are such creatures of habit; we just won’t go out any earlier, no matter what time the bars close.  While Bangkok’s nightspots revert back to 2:00am closing, it’s evident that there is more on display in some of the go-go bars.

DAVE THE RAVE’S BIRTHDAY BASH

YUI - AFTER DARK ASIA I will try to get Thailand Night Fever online as early as I can today, because it’s my birthday.  Give or take the odd week here and there, my birthday coincides with several anniversaries.  As coincidence would have it, my first trip to Thailand was 20 years ago in May 1988.  On May 20th, I will have been in Angelwitch for 3 years.  Also, this year sees me commence my 10th consecutive year in Nana Plaza, as the Go-Go Guru.  As you can see guys, 2008 is a rather significant year for Dave The Rave.  If you are in Bangkok, you are most welcome to help me celebrate my birthday tonight.  I will be in Angelwitch Go-Go Bar in Nana Plaza.  If you cannot make it don’t worry, because belated birthday wishes are always appreciated.  I look forward to seeing some of you later tonight.  I just hope that I manage to “survive” my birthday bash… Cheers!

CELEBRATING ST. PATRICK’S DAY IN BANGKOK (PART TWO)

NANA PLAZA - BANGKOK - THAILAND 002In conclusion, Bully’s Pub has a relaxing atmosphere that appeals to many different types of people.  Bully’s attracts singles, couples and even families.  It is an ideal place to meet friends, unwind after a long day, and/or enjoy live sports on a large TV screen.  Bully’s Pub is a bit more upmarket than other pubs in the area.  The prices tend to be higher and you will pay government tax on all food and beverage items.  Just to let you know where you stand.  It was time to leave the cosy comfort of Bully’s Pub…

SMOKING BAN IN A STATE OF CONFUSION

SOI COWBOY - BANGKOK - THAILAND - 05With some bars allowing smoking and other bars not, it does make the smoking ban look like a farce.  There are establishments where the so-called smoking ban has not been enforced whatsoever.  Once again, go-go bars are at the centre of the controversy.  In the Lumpini area (lower Sukhumvit Road), the Hotels and restaurants have been told they must enforce the smoking ban, but some bars in Nana Plaza are currently exempt.  In stark contrast, further along Sukhumvit Road, the bars in Soi Cowboy have been told to comply to the new law.  Down in Pattaya, a number of the go-go bar owners are allowing smoking, but they have been told to be discrete.  Word from Thai sources is that the smoking ban will be enforced eventually, but currently there is a grace period.  Understand that if you can!  Thailand’s Ministry Of Health (rather than the police) will apparently be checking to see who is complying to the smoking ban.  After May 31st, 2008 all hotels and public establishments must comply to the smoking ban, or face a 20,000 Baht fine.  So far, it looks like the ban has gone up in a cloud of smoke.  Meanwhile folks, it’s just another moment in the Land Of Make-Believe.
