Cactus Will Sting You! Cactus John is a crafty guy, who lures unsuspecting customers into his den of inequity. Once inside your life may never be the same again. Cactus Bar in the heart of Soi Cowboy boasts the largest selection of Belgian Beers out of all the go-go bars in Thailand. Hey, perhaps all of Asia too. The ‘booze cruise’ is obscene, with some Belgian Beers as high as 13 percent alcohol volume. Although a great cook and host, Cactus John is indeed a sick man. As John would say, ‘This beer is 13 percent… God-damn-it!’ Cactus Bar is a renowned home-from-home for those seeking American home style cooking, classic rock and a bunch of go-go girls who are certainly not shy!

What do most people do on their days off? I suppose they relax, watch TV, surf the internet, spend quality time with their other half, go shopping, visit their favourite restaurant, pursue their favourite sports or hobbies, or go to see a movie. What does Dave The Rave do? He goes on a barman’s holiday, (I don’t drive buses) and visits the go-go bars in Soi Cowboy. Being the Go-Go Guru, old habits die hard, which is not surprising.

THE SMOKING BAN DEBATE CONTINUES
I have to say that I am a bit surprised at how much of a debate the smoking ban has become. This seems to be a very important issue to some Westerners, while other people feel there are bigger problems to deal with. Down in Soi Cowboy, the smoking ban has been enforced in every bar. Smokers can be seen having a cigarette outside the bars in Soi Cowboy. Some smokers are openly displaying their disdain for the new law. Meanwhile, non-smokers are arguing that it is high time that smoking is banned in all bars right across Thailand. Non-smokers are clearly saying butt out! On the other hand, there are smokers who feel hard done by after all these years.
In Nana Plaza, the authorities have not enforced the smoking ban. Non-smokers should be aware of this fact. However, in Angelwitch Go-Go Bar they have banned the Thai staff from smoking inside the bar. This is something of a compromise to the situation. Customers are allowed to smoke in all of the four Rainbow Bars. Therefore, rival go-go bars do not want to lose customers to them. The smoking ban has to be a rule for all if it is going to work.
