Super Savers @ The Game Bangkok

Thursday, February 20th, 2020


Conveniently located next to the BTS Nana Skytrain Station you will find The Game Sports Bar. If you need me to be more precise, especially if you are on foot, it’s right on the corner of Sukhumvit Soi 9

The Game Pub has stood the test of time and is a popular place for resident expats, tourists and Thais alike.

It’s a popular place to start your evening before you visit Bangkok’s trendy clubland located on Sukhumvit Soi 11. Alternatively, perhaps you prefer the naughty nightlife situated in Nana Plaza and also in Soi Cowboy. You have easy access to these although Soi Cowboy is a bit further up the road. 

The Game Sports Bar has some great Super Savers and this is an ideal way to counter the strong Thai baht. Go along and take advantage of the special Meal Deal and Happy Hour.

We’re Not A Mom And Pop Store!

Thursday, January 16th, 2020




I remember attending a meeting at the command centre of the Nana Group in Bangkok. Glen, the head honcho of this large go-go bar group said to us, “We’re not a mom and pop store.” Now, being a Brit, this was the first time I heard this expression. It was explained to me that in the backwater towns in America, these were small shops ran by an old couple, or alternatively, it was a similar small family business. It is an expression that ‘feels’ as old as the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia!   

You probably do not consider your business, as a mom and pop store and rightly so, because it’s an insult to your accomplishments. But, it might surprise you to know that some of the most successful businesses in the world, started out that way. Just look at those young punks playing around in a garage. I bet some people thought, while everybody else is partying, boozing and shagging, “What the hell are these losers doing?” Thankfully, this bunch of ‘losers’ stuck at it because it became the catalyst for Microsoft and Apple. Don’t ever forget that from small acorns mighty oak trees grow!

Hey guys, what would most of us be doing right now without Microsoft and Apple? You must be on your computer or mobile phone in order to read this right now.  They have my ultimate respect, as pioneers of such an enormous technological triumph. I take my iHat off to them 🙂




While attending a Monthly Staff Meeting at Angelwitch Go-Go Bar in Nana Plaza, I stood up and said to a sea of Thai faces, “We are ‘kropkrua’ (family) and we should never forget this.” The bar owner Pim immediately jumped in and went on to remind the staff of deep-rooted Thai family values. To make everybody think and feel like a family is essential to the success of many businesses in Thailand. This is why the ‘mom and pop store’ saying has another meaning in terms of the Thai way of running a bar business.

The tradition of the Monthly Staff Meeting in bars is rather old fashioned now, but it was an ideal way to communicate with your ‘family’ or team. The great big carrot on the stick is that they are paid their salary. The bar bosses could relay any important news and even throw a party. I remember at Pretty Lady and Angelwitch, they gave the staff food and drink, even training them in better customer care methods. Pim went so far as to teach dance moves to her Angelwitch go-go dancers and Showgirls. It was an all-in-one multi-purpose meeting. The downside is that many bargirls have the attention span of a goldfish. But, in their defence, some of these meetings went on for hours and they seemed more like conferences.   

I recall Kip, the general manager of the Nana Group saying, “I have called this meeting to tell you there will be no more meetings.” Well, that cracked me up, what a great one-liner!  

The creator of the Angelwitch concept Matt started out in a small bar called Tony’s in Soi Cowboy. The fact is an establishment such as Tony’s Bar was indeed a mom and pop store, compared to the multimillion-baht go-go bars. The likes of Bacarra and the Rainbow Bars were on a very different level. The difference between Tony’s Bar and Angelwitch Bar (besides the obvious) in terms of the bar biz is like comparing a mom and pop store and a large supermarket. However, many of the same principles and operating systems, applied to both bars, even though the scale was so vastly different.

Being an old fashioned and traditional guy myself, I wish some of those mom and pop family values, were still around today. Modernisation in today’s society and business is inevitable but it is not always for the better.

Hemingway’s Pub Returns To Bangkok

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2019


When did you last have a wild night out on Sukhumvit Soi 14 in the Big Mango? Well, I bet it was a long time ago or maybe never! 
I remember the old Hemingway’s Pub, as being a stylish and popular venue but it was forced to close. But, don’t despair, I have good news. A brand new Hemingway’s has opened on the ever-popular Sukhumvit Soi 11 in downtown Bangkok. 


This means that the mega modern Sukhumvit Soi 11, acquires yet another great venue. Renowned as ‘Sukhumvit Clubland’ Soi 11 now has a number of trendy pubs to add to its fine collection. 

Hemingway’s has Daily Drinks Deals running from 11am till 8pm. But, Stickboy thinks Hemingway’s needs to step up its online marketing campaign.  Check out Stickboy’s article on the link below…


Hemingway’s Makes Its Return – Stickboy Bangkok

Just over two years ago Bangkok lost an iconic venue loved by so many from all walks of life in Hemingway’s. It was so bad at the time I thought the Twitteratti were going to hold a remembrance service such was their grief. No, I’m not kidding, it was that bad.

Thai Police Raid Bangkok Club

Sunday, January 20th, 2019

Royal Thai Police Arrest Drug Users

Yet another Thai night spot in Bangkok is possibly facing being closed for 5 years following a Thai Police raid.

Many of the clubbers attending the 56 Arena Music Hall on Charoenrat Road, were detained and found to have taken illegal substances.

Sealed plastic bags of crystal methamphetamine, ketamine and ecstasy, were found inside the nightclub. 

The owner was charged with operating without a licence, selling alcohol beyond legal hours and to persons under 20, advertising alcohol, allowing entry to persons under 20, and allowing illegal drug use on the premises.

Never Hurry A Curry!

Kiwi Curry Meal Deal

It’s Manic Monday and you are at a loose end. You partied hard in the pubs and clubs over the weekend… 

Why not try Kiwi Curry Night? Every Monday,  The Kiwi Pub run a promotion, which includes an Indian Curry Meal and a pint of Heineken Beer or Tiger Beer. 

There’s a choice of Chicken or Beef Jalfrezi, Tika Masala, or Rojan Josh. This is accompanied by Steamed Rice and a Garlic Pita Bread. Why Garlic Pita Bread instead of Roti or Naan Bread? Anyway, you get all this for 279 baht. Enjoy! 

Don’t worry about the curry! It’s not Atomic Curry such as Vindaloo, which I refer to as ‘Bin-Da-Loo’ too many times! 

The Kiwi Pub, also owned by Panthera Group, relocated down the first sub-soi in Sukhumvit Soi 8 on the right-hand side as you enter from Sukhumvit Road. In addition, the BTS Nana Skytrain Station is conveniently situated around the corner.

Daves Raves – Due to the United Kingdom’s increasing ‘immigration invasion’ Indian Curry is now Britain’s most popular dish.

Khaosan Road Clear The Sidewalks

Tuesday, September 5th, 2017


Street vendors operating in Khao San Road have been instructed to clear the sidewalks down this popular and trendy tourist area.

This is following a recent meeting with the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA). The street vendors were told to move their stalls from the sidewalk onto the road for a period of one week. The trial commences on September 12th.

The concept is proposed to satisfy everybody and BMA District Chef Wutichai Bunyasit said, “We want to return all footpaths to the people.”

Daves Raves – I think this is a sensible solution, so let’s hope it happens.

Never Hurry A Curry!

Monday, September 4th, 2017

Kiwi Pub Curry & Pint Night

When I lived in England, I have had my fair share of curry nights I call tell you. In fact, Indian Curry is now Britain’s most popular food. It beats Fish & Chips, Roast Dinners and Chinese Takeaway hands down.

I remember an Indian chef explaining to me the art of making a great curry. He said with a wry smile, “Never hurry a curry!” Well that just cracked me up!

The Kiwi Sports Bar & Grill hosts “Monday Curry Night” with a choice of Chicken, or Beef Jalfrezi, Rogan Josh, or Tikka Masala. It comes with Steamed Rice, Garlic Pita Bread, and a choice of a Heineken Pint, or a Tiger Pint. You get all that for just 279฿
