Bangkok Bars Are Open Tonight

Sunday, December 5th, 2010

Today it is His Majesty the King of Thailand’s 83rd birthday.  This is a brief update to inform you that the beer bars, go-go bars, pubs and clubs will be open in Bangkok tonight (05/12/10).  Alcohol will be available, as it was last year.  However, there is not good news for Pattaya, as the police have issued ‘dry day’ papers for tonight.  This is a harsh blow for Pattaya, which is a holiday resort and therefore, relies solely upon tourist revenue.  Meanwhile, the masses party on in Bangkok.

UPDATE 06/12/10 – All bars serving booze and babes again!

Halloween Weekend In Thailand

Friday, October 29th, 2010

This year Halloween falls on Sunday (31/10/10) which means that Thailand will be enjoying a weekend of scary fun.  It’s that time of year, when the big boys and girls dress up and come out to play.  We can forget all the doom and gloom going on in the world and enjoy ourselves.  Furthermore, for some harmless adult fun there’s nowhere better to enjoy Halloween than Thailand’s bars, pubs and clubs.  Angelwitch Go-Go Bars in Nana Plaza, Bangkok and Walking Street, Pattaya were both decorated ready for Halloween earlier this week.  With a name such as ‘Angelwitch’ it comes as no surprise that Angelwitch Go-Go Bars really go for it.  There will be special shows from Friday night until Monday night for the benefit of those who are flying in and out of Thailand on various days.  Don’t worry, you won’t miss any of the scary fun!

Carlsberg Beer Returns To Thailand

Saturday, October 23rd, 2010


CarlsbergBeerFollowing a lengthy drought Carlsberg Beer has returned to Thailand.  Initially, Carlsberg is now available in draught form in a selection of pubs across Bangkok and Pattaya.  Pubs in Phuket and Koh Samui will receive Carlsberg Lager within the next couple of weeks.  Unless beer bars and go-go bars are prepared to sell draught, you won’t find Carlsberg on sale just yet.  Bottles are planned to follow at a later date.  Independent importers and distributors Fluid Asia Pacific are delighted to bring the popular brew back to Thailand.  A representative from Fluid Asia Pacific commented, ‘Some people said that we would never get Carlsberg back, but it is flowing from pub pumps in Thailand.’  This is bigger news than some people may think, as it is a victory for Carlsberg and it is naive to underestimate its popularity.  Carlsberg is one lager that has the potential to challenge Heineken Beer.  Cheers!

World Cup – Argentina V Germany

Saturday, July 3rd, 2010

FIFA WORLD CUP 03/07/2010 – The stage is set for an exciting quarter final.  At 21:00 Thai time, it is Argentina V Germany, which is followed by Paraquay V Spain at 01:00 hours.  Although it is an unpredictable World Cup this year, I think Spain and Argentina will win.  However, as we have seen so far, anything could happen.  Yesterday, Holland sent Brazil home in a surprise 2-1 result.  Former World Cup winners France and Italy both crashed out very early, and pathetic England suffered their heaviest defeat in the history of the World Cup. 

WEATHER WATCH – Heavy rainfall has hit Bangkok these past two nights, but the FIFA World Cup is definitely giving the bar trade in Thailand a much-needed boost.

Think Of Jogging Think Of Blogging!

Saturday, April 25th, 2009

Recently, I feel I’m really getting into the swing of things with my blog. There are already 21 posts this month and it’s not the end of April yet. That’s not bad blogging at all. 

Here is a brief explaination for those who are unfamiliar with certain terms. A ‘blog’ is short for ‘weblog’ or online journal. ‘Blogging’ is the art of updating a weblog. OK guys, got it?


Blogging can be compared to running a marathon race, rather than the 100 yard dash. Think of jogging, think of blogging!

Rather than writing one long article per week, I break it up into bite-sized pieces throughout the week. This leads me to inform you that I will be posting articles several times throughout the week. Check back regularly, because I will endeavour to post every 1-3 days. And yes, you can hold me to that! All I can say is that I will give it my best shot.


Limited time is my biggest challenge. My mates don’t know how I do it. I run Angelwitch Go-Go Bar in Nana Plaza at least six nights every week. Furthermore, I am busy taking care of a house with four bedrooms, a Thai wife and a sister-in-law, a Thai maid, and three lovely, but very lively dogs! Sometimes, I wonder how I manage to host a popular website. However, I believe that if your heart is in it (whatever “it” is), you will make time somehow.

RECENT UPDATES – Oh yes, before I forget, there are 15 updates to the BANGKOK BARS AND PUBS PAGE

A Visit To Soi 8 Pub In Bangkok

Sunday, January 11th, 2009




 This week I decided to go to Soi 8 Pub. I had not been there in several weeks, so I was overdue for a visit. After having a chat with the owner Dave, I decided to study the menu. I suffered a bit of an ‘analysis paralysis’ because there is so much of a selection. I settled for the English breakfast. WOW! It was a very large plate of food and all for just 185 baht. Some places in Bangkok charge 200-300 baht. Plus you have to pay for VAT and service charge on top.

Briefly observe Dave The Rave’s expanding waistline and you will see that I have had a lot of ‘pub grub’ in my day. Therefore, I feel I have experience in this area… 

The old spit ‘n’ sawdust British pubs would sometimes throw in a breakfast for ‘Billy Bunters’ (punters), who stayed overnight at that particular tavern, or inn. By using the English colloquilism ‘throw in’ it became a literal translation. The buxom barmaid would sling your plate of incinerated fatty food right at you. Nowadays modern pubs are a lot more sophisticated and thank goodness they are!

I have to admit that I am an ardent fan of Soi 8 Pub in Bangkok. Located close to the entrance to Sukhumvit Soi 8, it is conveniently located for respectable folks, as well as piss artists alike! Recently, Soi 8 Pub has expanded the seating area to the left as you walk in the door. While some bar owners in Bangkok are cutting back, Kiwi Dave is expanding his horizons. On Christmas Day, Soi 8 Pub remained full all day. How many bars and restaurants can you say that about?

The service girls wear a smart uniform and they are always friendly and helpful. All in all, it was a terrific tasting, authentic English breakfast. This is a BIG breakfast, so make sure that you are famished. The service was as efficient as ever. I can confidently say that the ‘pub grub’ here is excellent value for money. Soi 8 Pub gets two thumbs up from Dave The Rave… Don’t be shy give it a try!

Daves Raves – Friday Night Update

Friday, July 18th, 2008



Asanha Bucha Day (July 17th) is deemed as a very important Buddhist holiday right across Thailand. In fact, some Thais tell me it is the most important Buddha Day. Today, Friday, July 18th it is Buddhist lent.  All devout Buddhists should “tham boon” (make merit) at their local “wat” (temple). Devout Buddhists should also pray and give offerings to monks, while abstaining from consuming alcohol. I wish you good luck. Chok dee kap!

BANGKOK BARS – Some bars will be closed tonight, but others are serving as normal.  Nana Plaza and the surrounding area is closed. For example, Bully’s Pub is open and they are serving booze. Woodstock Bar in Tonglor are also open. Therefore, I suggest that you try Soi Cowboy, Patpong and Bangkok pubs.

PATTAYA BARS – The beer bars and go-go bars across Pattaya will try to open tonight. However, I am not sure how many will be allowed to open. Have a look around, because some bars will definitely be serving alcohol. Cheers!
