Thailand Night Fever


Shakerz Coyote Club LogoThe Grand Opening of Shakerz Coyote Clubgot off to a somewhat “shaky” start. Last Sunday (June 24) Shakerz Coyote Clubopened its door to the public. Situated above Swan Pool Bar, which is right smack bang on the corner of the Sukhumvit, Soi 4 and Sukhumvit, Soi 6 junction. The two bar owners had tried their very best to recruit themost attractivecoyote dancers they could, but this is a tougher task than it looks to observers.The turnover of bargirls in Bangkok seems to have reached its highestlevel. The evening commenced very slowly with not much action at all until 10:00 PM. Fortunatelythe Shakerz dolly birds finally arrived and came to the rescue. Then the party got going. Long term Bangkok reident Khun Leigh was in attendance and he thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Khun Leigh and others thought that the two owners of Shakerz Coyote Club were brave to open on a Sunday night in low season. Unfortunately there was quite a lot of rainfall as well. But, despite the “shaky” start the place started to fill up after 10:00 PM and the Bosses were reported to be gracious hosts. Some of the free food on offer included fried chicken wings, so there werehot chicks in more forms than just one.


Talking of Khun Leigh, he has just started writing a new column entitled “Khun Leigh’s Corner” for Dean Barrett. Khun Leigh is described by Dean Barrett as a savvy local expat with vast experience of Bangkok’s nightlife. Check it out!

I would liketo clarify the current bar closing times for the go-go bar areas in Sanuk City, because they are often the most variable. In the same context the Bangkok bar closing hours can sometimes be confusing and therefore some people are misinformed. I have very positive news for Night Fever fans, because I am pleased to announce that later closing times have now been reinstated. This applies to ALL of the go-go bar areasright acrossBangkok. Currently, Patpong can stay open until 3:00 AM, so the go-go bars in Patpong close between 2:00 AM and 3:00 AM.Nana Plaza now closes consistently at around 2:00 AM (later onsome nights), and Soi Cowboy closes consistently between 2:00 AMand 2:30 AM. These times apply to most nights but occasionally they may vary slightly. Overallthis is very good news, even considering thatit is a quiet low season.

I want to point out that just because a go-go bar closes earlier than these times that have been stated above, it does not necessarily mean the boys in brown are closing all the bars down.What sometimes happenson quiet nights is the bar owners themselvesmight decide to close up for the night. Have a look around the immediate vicinity because there could well be a barthat is still open. Some nightsjust recently have beenveryquiet due to rainfall, or less bargirls and/or customersonthat particular nights. Therefore, rather than stay open for no logicalreason the bar boss sometimes shuts shop. There is hardly any point staying open withnext to zero customers, and this waybar bossescan show consideration “krengjai kropkrua” totheir staff. From time to time this happens all across Thailand, and as the “Welsh Wizard” Tom Jones sings, “It’s not unusual.”

THAI TALK – “krengjai kroprua” means to give consideration to the staff. The word “kropkrua” means family and this is how Thais refer to their team of staff.Quite often theboss or mamasan is refered to as “Mae” or Mother, and therefore this iswhere Thai terminology comes into play. The Thaishave madesomevery clever analogies in the bar business.


Having a stroll through “Little Las Vegas” or Soi Cowboy is never a dull experience for me personally. I think that the Q factor (quantity of quality) has risen considerablyin some go-go bars in Soi Cowboy. Combined with the BIG advantage of “showing”, Soi Cowboy has emerged as a more popular nightspot throughout this past year. This especially applies to farang residents who like to frequent Soi Cowboy, Nana Plaza and the many good pubsand theme bars that Bangkok offers in abundance. Soi Cowboy remains a popular choice for a wideselection of the farang expats. When you see some of the eye candy on offer it’s not surprising!

Spice Girls Go-Go BarLast week I discussed the “super savers” or great drink deals that Pattaya has to offer during their Happy Hours. In the same lighta selection ofgo-go bars in Soi Cowboyoffer some remarkably good Happy Hours. The following Soi Cowboy go-go bars; Our Place, Spice Girls, Midnite, andDejaVu all offer a very competitive Happy Hour. From 6:30 PM until 8:30 PM house drinks are only 50 Baht.By the way, not surprisingly Our Place, Spice Girls, Midnite and Deja Vu go-go bars are all owned by the same go-go bar owner.This go-go bar group also offer tequilaat only 50 Baht a shot. Please note that the 50 Baht tequila shotsrunevery Monday and Tuesday. I think that tastes in go-go bars vary enormously, but whatever you think of these four go-go bars, this Happy Hour isa real deal.Chok Dee Kap!
