The Changing Face Of Nana Plaza

Monday, January 29th, 2018

Do You Remember This Bar?

Spellbound Nana Plaza Bangkok - The Changing Face Of Nana Plaza

BANGKOK’S EVER CHANGING FACES AND PLACES

Several moons ago Spellbound Go-Go Bar replaced Pretty Lady Bar, which was formerly known as Bottoms Up and also Pretty Girl. Then Spellbound became Bangkok Bunnies, as it is known today. Have you got that?

Some go-go bars keep the same name for ages and other go-go bars change name a number of times. It just depends how many times they change ownership, or have to be renamed for other reasons.

As a ‘sign’ of the times, go-go bars change names much more these days than they ever did. This is particularly true in Nana Plaza. Is variety the spice of life, or do you prefer consistency over change?

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

Bangkok Bar Closures Update

Friday, October 13th, 2017

 

soi nana bangkok 5 - Bangkok Bar Closures Update

NANA PLAZA, SOI COWBOY & PATPONG CLOSED OCTOBER 25-27

UPDATE – A number of Bangkok bars and clubs will CLOSE tonight to respect the passing of His Majesty King Bhumibol on October 13th, 2016.

The beer bars, go-go bars, pubs and clubs, are all OPEN on Saturday, October 14th and on Sunday 15th. They are also OPEN next weekend (October 20-22). With so many public holidays in Thailand, I know it can be hard to keep track of them all.

The Royal Funeral of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej will officially take place on Thursday, October 26th. Everybody is advised to wear black clothing, as this will be an extremely sad time for Thailand.

This means that all entertainment venues will (most likely) be CLOSED on October 25th, 26th and 27th. It may well be a good time to take a break from Bangkok.

Dave’s Raves – It’s not demanded that foreigners wear black clothing (October 25-27), but it will be respected by the Thai people.

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.

soi cowboy may 2011 - Stickmania (April 13th 2007)

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!

How Much Is Enough?

Here’s the scenario… You are planning a trip to Pattaya City, but you don’t know how much spending money you will need.

Help is at hand, as the guys at Pattaya One News came up with the answer.

Some guys tell us that Pattaya is getting expensive, while others say it remains great bang-for-baht (pun intended). What is the truth?

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.

Mayweather VS McGregor (WBC Title)

Friday, August 25th, 2017

The Game Mayweather McGregor - Mayweather VS McGregor (WBC Title)

MAYWEATHER VS McGREGOR

The burning question this weekend is who will win the WBC Super Welterweight Title Fight? Will it be Super Slick Floyd Mayweather, or Mad Irishman Conor McGregor?

Dubbed ‘The Money Fight’ these two fighters are set for an enormous pay day on Sunday, August 27th. In fact, it’s such HUGE money that it’s extremely obscene!

For the multitudes of fight fans around the world, we want to see an action-packed World Title Fight, this is what matters to us.

Chequers Pub Mayweather V McGregory - Mayweather VS McGregor (WBC Title)

CHEQUERS PUB SPECIAL BOXING BREAKFAST

So, where do you watch Mayweather vs McGregor in Bangkok? Well, I suggest Stumble Inn Bar (Sukhumvit Soi 4), Chequers Pub (Sukhumvit Soi 4), The Kiwi Pub (Sukhumvit Soi 8), The Australian (Sukhumvit Soi 11), or last but by no means least The Game (Sukhumvit Soi 9). There’s five good choices, so pick what you prefer. All of these Bangkok bars, are great theme pubs in their own right.

STUMBLE INN BAR – DOORS OPEN 09:00 FOR HAPPY HOUR & FOOD IS AVAILABLE

They state when their pub doors open, but the Mayweather vs McGregor fight will not start before 10:00 AM. It’s expected to start between 10:00-11:00 AM. Don’t get up at the crack of dawn, unless you are determined to get the best ringside seat!

I am looking forward to the Big Fight and I think this will be an exciting encounter of two great fighters. Will Mayweather box too clever, or will McGregor knock him out?

Amazing Thailand Street Food Vendors

Street Eat Beat!

It is important what you believe these days, especially with the increasing amount of inaccurate reports and fake news in the various forms of media. It is so often the biggest media companies who are  the worst offenders.

Fairly recently it was reported that all Bangkok street food vendors were to be removed, but this did not happen. Sukhumvit Road street vendors remain out in force and I was out taking some photos this week to show you.

The string of street food vendor photos below are from Soi Nana…

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.
