 SPECIAL ANNIVERSARY EDITION

Hold tight riders, here we go! This week I am proud to announce the 2nd Anniversary of this Thailand nightlife website. There was no “Thailand Night Fever” on Wednesday, because I wanted to post on the actual date of the 2nd Anniversary. Rather pedantic you may think, but I’m a sentimental old fool! Incidentally, I am very pleased to say that last month was the most web traffic my website has ever received. You could say it is a most welcomed birthday gift. In just a couple of years, it’s incredible how popular www.DaveTheRaveBangkok.com has become. This is especially true, considering it all started out as a Thailand nightlife newsletter sent to a few friends. (more…)

THAILAND NIGHTLIFE NEWSFLASH

Nana Plaza was suffering early closing due to police politics, but there is good news. Nana Plaza is open until at least 2:00am every night. Hooray!

NIGHTSEEING IN NANA – PART 2

Hi Guys, this week I continue talking about one of my favourite pubs in Bangkok…

Finnegan’s Pub is located opposite Rajah Hotel car park, just down past The Tavern in Soi Nana. This popular oasis is both Irish and Thai ran. Therefore, visitors can enjoy the best of both worlds, with a unique mixture of “Thairish” hospitality. The slightly unusual thing for an Irish Pub is that Finnegan’s is immaculately clean and tidy. This is where Thai presentation skills come into play. Finnegan’s has two levels and if you don’t fancy eating among the drinkers, there is a dining area upstairs. The girls are farang friendly, and the service is very efficient by Thai standards. In some establishments, guys have been known to grow beards whilst waiting for their order! This is not the case in Finnegan’s, because Gerry has his eye on the ball… As luck would have it, a gorgeous beer promo girl served me a pint of John Smith’s Bitter. With a John Smith’s in one hand and a dolly bird in the other, it was literally a bittersweet experience! (more…)

NIGHTSEEING IN NANA

Recently I have visited Finnegan’s Irish Pub down in Soi Nana. This past week Finnegan’s has done a brisk trade, while other pubs in the vicinity remain quiet. Admittedly, it is a small pub, but they have built up a good crowd of regulars. Although Finnegan’s attracts a healthy following, I think it is underrated in some ways. The excellent food alone should be a BIG draw. Check out the excellent menu, I think you will be impressed. Please say hello to Gerry, the friendly Irish owner. Cheers! (more…)

GETTING MARRIED TO A THAI

THAI GIRLS - BANGKOK - THAILANDThere are some decisions in life that require serious consideration.  One such decision is whether to get married.  If we make the wrong decision, it can cause us extreme emotional and financial suffering.  This suffering might last for many years to come.  By taking a closer look at this subject, we can all remind ourselves how important the commitment of marriage really is.  It would be very foolish not to take marriage seriously.  Despite the fact that it has almost become a trend to get divorced, marriage is about entering a partnership with the person you love and care for.  The vows that one recites, emphasise a special commitment to a loved one, who is to become (theoretically speaking) our life partner.  It is a sad fact that in Farangland most marriages fail.  This is so often such a worrying problem, because children are caught up in the crossfire.  In some extreme cases, the children are used as ammunition to win divorce cases.  This is nothing short of sick, but in this era of dog-eat-dog, it is often a matter of “win at all costs.”   These are the facts of the matter, which is a sad reflection of today’s society.

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…

GOOD NEWS FOR A BOOZE CRUISE

Tiger Beer In ThailandFollowing the recent dry spell across Thailand, we are now green for go!  Tonight marks the return of alcohol and more importantly the tourist areas can open their bars.  Pattaya Police in particular, took harsh measures by immediately closing any go-go bar that attempted to open on Friday night.  As one established Pattaya go-go bar owner said to me, “The Pattaya go-go bar owners will lose five nights takings this December.”  This is a crushing blow to some bars in Pattaya that are quite clearly struggling.  Not to mention all the poor farangs who have flown across the world to party in Thailand.  Anyway, the bars right across Thailand will be open and serving alcohol from tonight (December 16th).  All together now lads, “HOORAY!” 

There is a catch to this though.  Officially speaking, alcohol is NOT supposed to be served until 10:00pm tonight.  Let us hope that the boys in brown will let the “booze cruise” kick off earlier at around 9:00pm.

REMINDER FOR DECEMBER 22nd AND DECEMBER 23rd

Angelwitch Go-Go Bar - Nana Plaza - ThailandSorry to say that next week on December 22nd and December 23rd, these are most likely to be “NO ALCOHOL” nights.  December 23rd is the BIG ONE because this is the day of the Thai Elections.  Thank the Lord when all this nonsense is over!  As you know, millions of people from all corners of the globe fly to Thailand.  Not surprisingly, all of us farangs are totally baffled, because we know we cannot vote.  Furthermore, most of us would have no intentions to vote even if we could.  Why should Westerners have to suffer the ban on alcohol?  The Thai authorities really dropped a clanger this year. 

BATTLE OF THE TITANS

Moving on to a much more exciting subject than politics; tonight there are two HUGE English Premier League football matches.  It is the Battle Of The Titans!  The mighty reds both face off in another epic encounter, as the English Premiership Champions Manchester United take on Liverpool at Anfield.  Meanwhile in the capital there is a London derby match where Premier League leaders Arsenal host Chelsea.  Both of these matches have the potential to be full of end-to-end electrifying action…

THAILAND TIME KICK OFF…
