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.

THE STRIP GOGO BAR PATPONG SOI 2

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!

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!

Cover Your What?

Saturday, May 13th, 2017

Well it’s been one hell of a week!  Which culminated with my entire website going on the Fritz on Friday night. Some frantic calls to the hosting provider and a few other people, and we managed to get the old girl back up again.

In this day an age, websites need updating technically, as well as regular content being posted. I am not a technical guy I just know the basics. But, me and the old girl have been through so much together since 2006 and I would be mortified if anything happened to my ole bird! 🙂

THE ALL NEW HILLARY 1 BAR (RAJAH COMPLEX SOI NANA)

Anyway, I remember years ago in England, when I was a nightclub doorman, this massive Bentley rolled up one day. My mate nudged me and said, ‘Here that’s Sheikh Yamani,’  and I replied a bit too loud, ‘Shake your what?’

Well it happened it again the other day when Joe was telling me about the new event he has planned for the end of May at the Black Pagoda, which is called ‘Cover Your Stones’  and I blurted out, ‘Cover your what?’

The event Joe was telling me about should be good  because it’s two of Bangkok’s most famous cover bands;  the Bangkok Beatles and Sticky Fingers, going head-to-head at the Black Pagoda.

I am looking forward to this, as I have seen the Sticky Fingers at Clubhouse Sports Bar and I have to say they are very good. I love The Rolling Stones songs and this promises to be a great night.  The video of the last live music event they did at the Black Pagoda looks like it went very well.

For anyone interested in this event it’s on Saturday 27th March from 9:00 PM at the Black Pagoda, Patpong 2 – tickets can be purchased on the day, or in advance on Oneplace. You can also join the Facebook event

There were a couple of big events over the past week, one was the 4 Year Anniversary at Insanity Nightclub.  That was on Thursday and I had every intention of going, but I got totally waylaid at the other event, which was the opening of the new Hillary 1 at Rajah Complex on Soi Nana.

Although I was not there my good mate Toby was about and he said it was a great night at Insanity Nightclub. But, I doubt if he can remember all of it. Toby did  manage to capture this video footage, which looks like he had slightly more interesting evening than me at Hillary’s. However, I have to say I was very impressed with the new venue and the refurbishment job is superb. Mind you, I thoroughly enjoyed the eye candy of several red hot promo dolly birds. There were some interesting guests, including some of the bar owners from Nana Plaza.

More news and tittle tattle soon. Cheers!

WOW! THIS GIRL CAN DANCE 😀 #insanity #bangkok

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 🙂

Friday The 13th

Thursday, January 12th, 2017

My apologies to readers for such a long delay in posting and updating my website, this has been due to some personal issues including the passing of my dear old mother before Christmas. In addition, five of my friends passed away in 2016 making it my worst year on record.

Thankfully the dreadful 2016 is now behind us all and many people are feeling more optimistic about this New Year.  I shall be posting a lot more regularly and updating the site, starting now!

FRIDAY 13th.

friday the 13th in bangkok

Considered by many in Western countries to be an unlucky day, this is not true for Thais who see nothing wrong with the number 13 at all.  In fact, since it’s a Friday and we’re still in high season, it’s just another reason to have a party and many bars and clubs seem to be doing just that tomorrow.

 

friday 13 at EQ - Friday The 13th

First on the list in the Nana area is EQ Late Night Club,which is holding a killer Hip Hop Night with DJ Remi and MC Boakye, giving you a blood curdling night full of HIP HOP from the past three decades 🙂
Doors open at 10:00 PM, with 99 baht Singha, Singha Light and standard mix drinks until midnight. There is also 50% off select bottles before midnight.

 

bAR BAR POSTER 747x1024 - Friday The 13th

There are also a couple of interesting events on Patpong.

BarBar is holding a Fetish Playground Party and I am told there will be snacks served on a naked girl (sounds interesting), as well as masks and special shows.  Couples are welcome. BarBar is located on Patpong soi 2.

Right next door at the Strip they are holding a Back In Black Party featuring the girl dressed in black skirts.  They have a very generous 70 baht on all beers until 9:00 PM and  I was at the last one they did, which was a  great night, so I might drop down myself for a beer or two 🙂   Check out the lovelies in the video below…

Please do share and check in for lots more updates coming soon….

FRIDAY NIGHT SPECIALS

Friday, July 8th, 2016

TGI Friday! Most bar and club owners in Bangkok will be glad to see the back of the Euro Cup, as whilst great for European football enthusiasts, these events combined with heavy rain can only mean one thing – slow business.

Soi Cowboy and Soi Nana seem to have had a few reasonable days trade this past week and the 3rd year anniversary party at Mercury Bar in Nana Plaza was a big success, thanks to everyone who showed up.  On Patpong, it’s been another story with bars noticeably quiet over the last couple of weeks.  No doubt they will be breathing a big sigh of relief  when the final passes this Saturday.

For all of us watching the pennies, there are a couple of good deals about this weekend – Stumble Inn on Soi Nana has a  daytime (9:00 AM-6:00 PM) special of 100 baht pints of Chang and Tiger Beer.

stumple inn bangkok

I notice that Strip on Patpong 2 is also offering 99 baht on all beers all night on Fridays, together with a Sexy Ripped Jeans Party.  I thought they all wore tight tiny jeans anyway?  When you consider some bars now charge as much as 200 baht for a beer, this is a great drinks deal. I can vouch for both venues having good service, attractive girls and friendly managers.  In the case of The Strip the manager always looks after regulars and will often give customers a free drink. Awesome!

EQ Late Night Club is having a special Euro Cup Final Party on Saturday night and that might be interesting, as they now have pool tables and flat screen TV’s.  It’s a nice atmosphere and may well be a good place to watch the final.

Brexit – in or out?

Thursday, June 23rd, 2016

Tomorrow is the big day for the UK to decide on whether it wants to stay in the EU or say goodbye.

It seems to me very few people I talk to are in favor of remaining in EU, despite the fact that many celebrities like David Beckham and Daniel Craig have come out in support of remain.  The common reasons people give for wanting to leave the EU:

Bonkers Brussels – 170,000 people now work for EU institutions,  that’s double the British Army.  No wonder we have to contribute 350 million quid a week. It’s bureaucracy gone mad!

You wouldn’t mind but we have no choice over who these people are and we cannot remove them if they mess up. Plus they now create about half the new laws in the UK.  In the beginning it was supposed to be all about trade but now Brussels is telling everyone what to do – time to leave.

Migration – Over 1 million migrants came into Europe last year,  but according to UNHCR there are 60,000,000 more displaced people who are seeking refuge. That’s mind boggling and tops the numbers at the end of the last world war.  It’s not racist to be worried about what this means for cities, towns and villages across europe.  At the moment they are calling it a crisis but as the numbers increase will the  ‘socialist’  EU and its army of bureaucrats be able to handle it? Unlikely

Despite these obvious drawbacks the bookmakers seem to think it’s a done deal for the Remain camp – we’ll have to wait and see.

Win or lose you can let off some steam at the Strip Bar on Patpong 2, which is having a Brexit party on Friday night with all beers just 99 THB all night.

If only David Cameron could have got a deal like that from the EU!

You do not want to miss this one!

Saturday, March 19th, 2016

BarBar fetish club on Patpong 2  has its 10 year anniversary next Friday 25th starting 6pm and it should be a good  night.

I am told they will have the famous Sushi girl as well as  other live events and of course a full ensemble of hot mistresses and slaves.

I like to go to these parties because you always see a  few old hands and Bangkok legends like Dean Barrett about.

BarBar has had its up and downs over the years but right now it’s on an up, with some very saucy new girls.

I have always said fetish is the new tattoo, it started off being edgy and fringe and is gradually working its way into the mainstream.

I would expect to see this sort of stuff cropping up as themes for all sorts of things.  We’ve already had the book (50 shades of grey) now all we need is Angelina Jolie and Brad Pit to pop into a fetish club and that’ll be it, your gran will be going!

Anyway if you fancy something different for the weekend this is one to go for,
after all as they say ‘it’s only kinky the first time!’ 🙂

St. Patricks day promotions

Wednesday, March 16th, 2016

Should be a big night for lots of places tomorrow in celebration of St. Patricks Day, especially some of the Irish Pubs like the Dubliner and Mulligans.

I notice one bar is even offering a free beer to anyone who drops by.   The Strip on Patpong 2, which has recently been taken back over by its former American owner.

This  is good news because this used to be a great little bar with some crazy over the top girls.  The bar had flagged a little since the old owner left, so great to see he has returned.

Last week was a soft reopening party and the little place was back on old form, with the usual suspects up to their old antics (see attached pics)

Tomorrow they are offering a free beer to anyone who drops by Before 9pm .  They have some hot girls and it should be a good night.

We do see more and more aggressive promotions like these now going on in Bangkok. I always predicted that this would be the year of deep discounts and big promotions as customers get more and more savvy about where the best deals in town are.

All this is definitely good news for punters as getting loaded can now cost you a lot less than it used to if you know where to go.

Red Dragon 7 Nights of Fetish at BarBar

Monday, February 1st, 2016

BarBar Red Dragon fetish nights20

 

BarBar fetish club on Patpong soi 2 will host a party starting this Friday 5th of February, which will continue for 7 nights!

The party is called Red Dragon and is a celebration of the Chinese lunar new year. There will lots of hot mistresses and slaves in attendance to thrill and entertain the punters.

The event will feature live shows and a tattoo artist on the 5th and 9th,  tattooing the BarBar logo on any willing girls and customers who want it done.  Several girls have already had this tattoo done (see pictures).  The owner told me if any customers wish to get the tattoo done on themselves it’s free.

I am also told that Bar Bar will be holding a massive 10th anniversary party on March 25th  AND there will be an even bigger party on the 8th and 9th of April at the Castle in Pattaya. I will update you on these parties as I get more information.

BarBar has a large loyal following, including some Bangkok celebs like Dean Barrett and the owners usually put on a good bash, so these events are always worth a look in.

The entrance fee to BarBar has always been 900 THB and this does include live shows, a free drink of your choosing and of course a bit of slap and tickle 🙂

Some fantastic pics below to whet your appetite.

Pic of the Week and DJ Kofty

Friday, October 9th, 2015

DJ Kofty has been on the decks since the 1970’s  and tonight puts in a rare appearance at the Black Pagoda.  The Black Pagoda is located on Patpong Soi 2  opposite Foodland.  The gig starts and 10pm and finishes at 3am and it should be good.  If you need a sexy girl on your lap while you marinade a few ice cubes, we suggest you go early.

Ok that’s the news for the day, now pic of the week, here are some beach bums hanging out at the Strip on Patpong 2.

If you are dying to see the fronts you better get down there…

LATER CLOSING TIME FOR NANA PLAZA

Friday, March 6th, 2015

An overnight decision by Thai authorities has granted the later closing time of 2:00 am to the gogo bars and beer bars in Nana Plaza. This also includes the beer bars and pubs situated along Soi Nana.

There were false reports that Bangkok nightlife would be shut down at midnight right across the capital, but this was nothing but dubious reporting.

As far as I know the closing time in Nana Plaza is now reverted back to 2:00 am nightly. This looks like good news for fans of Soi Nana and Nana Plaza.

Nana Plaza is now back on a level playing field with Soi Cowboy and Patpong.

Whenever the fetish freaks talk about the kinky clubs in Bangkok, they often mention BarBar, which is situated in Patpong. However, the larger and longer established fetish club in Bangkok is in fact Demonia.

Located on Sukhumvit Soi 33 this spacious fetish club was where it all began.

On February 27th and 28th Demonia will celebrate Chinese New Year.
