LATER CLOSING TIMES FOR SOME BANGKOK NIGHTCLUBS

Despite the Thai capital being quieter due to the ongoing political problems, it is still business as usual in Bangkok’s bars, pubs and clubs.  In fact, some bars and clubs have recently been granted later closing times.  This is good news for the nocturnal revellers who want to party on until the wee hours.  (more…)

NANA PLAZA – ENTER THE NEON JUNGLE

Recently, there is a noticeable increase in visitors to Nana Plaza and this past weekend saw some go-go bars packed to capacity with customers.  One reason is due to a five-day national holiday in Japan.  The three main Rainbow Bars, or ‘Jap Traps’ in Nana Plaza namely; Rainbow 1, Rainbow 2 and Rainbow 4 were brimming with Japanese customers.  I know I have a laugh at their expense, but the Japanese are usually no trouble at all as paying punters.  They never seem to complain, never get aggressive and rarely cause trouble.  In terms of behaviour and generosity, the Japanese are ideal customers for the go-go bars and not surprisingly, very popular with Thai bar girls.  (more…)

STEPHEN HENDRY MAKES AN IMPACT IN THAILAND

STEPHEN HENDRY IN THAILANDIt is certainly not every day that a famous sports celebrity rolls into town.  When did you last meet a living legend from the world of sport?  This week it is an honour for a selection of pubs in Thailand to host Stephen Hendry.  For some people who are not familiar with snooker, Stephen Hendry is deemed by many people, as the most successful player in the history of the game.  In any sport, it is a fantastic achievement to become World Champion.  However, Stephen has achieved this feat a record breaking seven times, which is truly remarkable.  I am sure most of you know that snooker is an extremely skilful and highly competitive game.  But, the “Flying Scotsman” made it look all so easy.  For eight consecutive years, Stephen Hendry dominated snooker by remaining top of the world rankings.  Stephen started playing snooker at the tender age of 12.  At 16 years old, he became the youngest ever professional snooker player.  Stephen then went on to become the youngest World Snooker Champion at the age of 21.  It is fair to say that a very special sports celebrity has arrived in Thailand… (more…)

DAVE THE RAVE’S BIRTHDAY BASH

YUI - AFTER DARK ASIA I will try to get Thailand Night Fever online as early as I can today, because it’s my birthday.  Give or take the odd week here and there, my birthday coincides with several anniversaries.  As coincidence would have it, my first trip to Thailand was 20 years ago in May 1988.  On May 20th, I will have been in Angelwitch for 3 years.  Also, this year sees me commence my 10th consecutive year in Nana Plaza, as the Go-Go Guru.  As you can see guys, 2008 is a rather significant year for Dave The Rave.  If you are in Bangkok, you are most welcome to help me celebrate my birthday tonight.  I will be in Angelwitch Go-Go Bar in Nana Plaza.  If you cannot make it don’t worry, because belated birthday wishes are always appreciated.  I look forward to seeing some of you later tonight.  I just hope that I manage to “survive” my birthday bash… Cheers!

THE SMOKING BAN DEBATE CONTINUES

AFTER DARK ASIA MAGAZINE VOLUME 5I 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.

ROMANTIC REMINDER – CUPID’S CALLING

Bangkok ThailandSome of you less romantic folks might need a reminder that it is Valentine’s Day tomorrow.  This is to jog your memory, because you know what us men are like for remembering special days.  Try not to forget a card, or gift for the special person in your life.  It is not too late to surprise your teerak (sweetheart) by arranging a romantic dinner for two.  Just by making the effort, I am sure that it will be appreciated.  We should get away with being a Romantic Romeo and not be accused of getting too soppy by our macho mates.  Wherever you spend this year’s Valentine’s Day, I sincerely hope you have a pleasant time.  Who will be your Valentine?
