Patpong Opens But More Venues Close

Bada Bing Patpong

Bada Bing Patpong During Far Happier Times

Having been able to obtain their SHA approvals, some of Patpong’s nightlife venues have reopened  this week.

These include the Legendary Bada Bing (once voted one of the top 5 Gogo Bars in Bangkok), The Black Pagoda and XXX Lounge (formerly Club Electric Blue), which has been open for a couple of weeks now. Also, open are BarBar Fetish Club, Patpong Museum and the King’s Corner Bar.

The New Normal.

Although these bars have got their SHA approvals and been able to open, the new normal is very different from the pre-covid days.  The lights are on, the music is very soft, there is no dancing permitted, the stages are empty or curtained off. So sadly, it’s a bit like being in a GoGo bar at closing time.

With beers prices at a lot of venues still high, around 180 baht in some places; is this a tempting prospect? I leave you to draw your own conclusions. 😉

Goodbye To Old Friends…

On a slightly sadder note, some well know and well-loved Patpong venues have closed permanently. These include the Madrid Bar on Patpong 1 and Le Bouchon French Restaurant on Patpong 2.

Madrid Bars Interior – Been Going Since 1969

The legendary, nostalgic Madrid Bar dates back to 1969, when it catered mostly to US soldiers fighting in the Vietnam War and later gaining a reputation for hosting pilots from the CIA’s Air America and even, as a place where covert operations were planned. Oh yes, it’s all incredibly true! 

Bangkok living legend and acclaimed author Dean Barrett, recalls drinking with Tony Poe at the Madrid Bar. Tony Poe was a CIA officer famed to be who the character of Colonel Kurtz was based on in the movie Apocalypse Now.

Such a shame to see all that rich history disappear. ?Le Bouchon was a similar legend having been on Patpong 2 for over 25 years, seving excellent French cuisine.

Le Bouchon With Its Legendary Owner Serg

Serge the owner posted this message on his Facebook page…

“Dear Customers, Friends and Associates,

Today, and with great sadness, I have to inform you that, due to the current adverse circumstances, your favorite restaurant Le Bouchon in Patpong, will remain closed. I wish to take this opportunity, together with my entire staff, to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kind patronage and unwavering support over the past twenty-five years. I have enjoyed and appreciated every minute of it. On a more positive note, be assured that I am actively in search of a new location and I will not fail to communicate with you in due time. We shall meet again in the near future. In the meantime, stay healthy.” Serge

The list of venues that have closed permanently on Patpong is growing with Superstar, the oldest go-go bar in Thailand and Kiss Go-Go Bar added to the list.

More updates soon, cheers! 


How To Play The GoGo Game

Sunday, February 23rd, 2020


Preface – Most of this following advice is for those who are not familiar with a certain gogo bar or red-light district in Bangkok or Pattaya. However, even experienced guys need reminders from time to time. The go-go bars are like any other business, the ultimate goal is to make money. The go-go dancers are not upon the stage for the goodness of their health. Bearing this in mind, if you think Thai gogo bars are mercenary, then visit the strip joints in Farangland for a reality check. I wish you happy hunting!  

Know Your Game Plan — You should have a game plan before you enter any go-go bar. Remember, it’s your time and your money. You are calling the shots, so never forget that important fact. If for any reason you do not like the venue you can simply leave, as long as you have paid your bar bill. Firstly, see if the venue suits your needs before you commit yourself. The bar cannot charge you for looking! Any go-go bar is either busy or empty for a reason. Remember this before you decide to sit down. Here are my guidelines to help you create your gogo game plan… 



Do Not Burn Your Bridges — If for any reason you feel angry, it is better to walk away than cause a scene. Use the 24-hour rule; leave and assess the situation when you have cooled down. You may have had too much to drink, there may have been a misunderstanding and more importantly, you may want to return to that go-go bar. Furthermore, you certainly don’t want to start a fight, as you will be surrounded like General Custer! Believe me, just walk away, as it really is not worth the trouble. There are plenty of other gogo bars, so no reason you can’t have a good time.

Look Before You Leap — Take your time before selecting your lady of the night. A common mistake is to go for the first girl you see or the first girl who approaches you. She may well be the biggest hustler in the place! Wait until you have seen all the girls or you may regret it later. Therefore, there may well be hotter girls available, so hold your horses. Do not be rushed into a decision by a pushy mamasan or go-go dancer. In fact, it is better to cut out the middleman altogether. Why do you need somebody else to tell you what you like?  You pick the girl, not the other way around.



Rules Of Engagement — They say all is fair in love and war. Well, this certainly applies to the business of booze and babes! Part of playing any game is knowing the rules. What are the drink and bar fine prices? If you don’t know then ask, don’t try to fly blind or you may well crash and burn. Before you start buying loads of drinks, how much does she charge? If you think a strip club is a lonely-hearts club you are in for a big shock buddy!

Show You Know — Show you know the game, show them the banknotes (literally) and show you are in control of the situation. The persona you portray is important, as Thais read body language well, so show you are assertive and confident. Any dodgy Thais intent on cheating you will most probably leave you alone and go after an easier target. Show them you know the go-go game and be prepared to stick by your guns.



Be The Boss — My final top tip is to be the boss. Certain bar girls are hardcore hookers, who are masters of manipulation. Did you know some top gogo dancers can earn 100,000 to 300,000 baht per month? Don’t let them gauge you for cash, they might make more money than you do. Don’t be scared to refuse them when they get too greedy. Just remember whose money it is and remain the boss. You have every right to spend your time and money how you want. After all, the customer is supposed to be king. 

Epilogue — During the golden years, I ran both Hollywood Bars, Angelwitch Rock Dancers and Billboard Bar, which were among the most popular gogo bars in Thailand. Nowadays, I see so many problems with numerous gogo bars; they are inundated with issues both internal and external. Therefore, I feel my guidelines for you are more essential now than ever before. Armed with this advice, there is no reason you cannot have a great time in the gogo bars of Thailand. You just need to know how to play the gogo game.

Steakhouse Bangkok Thanksgiving

Tuesday, October 9th, 2018

That traditional time of year is approaching, for an annual feast. It is of course, the American tradition of Thanksgiving.

During those days gone by, the bird of the season was the turkey. You don’t just have to eat roast turkey at Christmas you know, as any savvy American will tell you. This year Thanksgiving falls on October 22nd. 

Where do you find such a fine feast? Well, look no further than The Steakhouse Co. Bangkok. Eager to see you enjoy a Thanksgiving meal of quantity and quality, Steakhouse Bangkok is now taking bookings.

Mandarin Bar Daily Drinks Deals

Thursday, September 13th, 2018

Today, I want to bring your attention to a Daily Drinks Deal, which is one of (if not) the best bang-for-baht drink promotions for any go-go bar in Bangkok.

For just 99 baht you can drink spirits all night long at Mandarin Go-Go Bar and Mandarin Table Dance Bar. Check out the poster below to see which drinks are on offer, as they rotate daily. 

There are some go-go bars that run Happy Hours, but this particular promotion is better, as it runs all night and every night.

Another thing I like is they are all good brands of spirits. These days there are plenty of beer promotions, but not so many liquor promotions. Therefore, it is good to discover one for the spirit drinkers. Check it out!  

Mandarin Go-Go Bar is located on the Middle Level of Nana Plaza. You will find it at the top of the escalator, next door to Mandarin Table Dance Bar

The sights, sounds and smells of Soi Nana conspire to create an eclectic scene full of cultural contradictions. It’s the inimitable Sukhumvit Soi 4 

Vibrant is an understatement, as the culture shock hits you the second you enter this infamous very popular Bangkok nightlife area.

Bangkok Nightlife Loses Historic Venues

Thursday, March 1st, 2018


Two long established venues in Bangkok’s nightlife scene have closed their doors. Club Electric Blue Go-Go Bar in Patpong 2 announced that they were calling last orders for literally the very last time.

Club Electric Blue was one of the go-go bars frequented by resident farangs and tourists alike. But, for the local lads it was the place you visited to have a chat with Big Andy, or one of his managers. The guys would gather at the bar counter and enjoy the company of fellow farang residents. On certain nights it was a very interesting congregation of characters.

Alas, all good things have to come to an end and Big Andy decided to pull the plug. One reason is to concentrate on his other go-go bars, namely Club Electric Blue and Dollhouse down in Soi 15 Walking Street, Pattaya.


The second nostalgic venue to close is Annie’s Soapy Massage. Following an incredible run of 46 years, Annie’s Soapy Massage was forced to close. Increasing running costs and especially, the rent increases led to the demise.

However, Annie’s lovely ladies have relocated to Chrome Bar, which is situated approximately half way down Sukhumvit Soi 7/1 on the left side.

Speaking of Soi 7/1 the former Bangkok Beat venue is still up for sale. Any interested buyers can email me (, or get the contact details from the sign outside. The old Bangkok Beat was a popular venue, especially when my mate Mike was running it.  It’s a good location, conveniently sitting near the entrance to Soi 7/1 from Sukhumvit Road.

Club Electric Blue Closing Down

Tuesday, February 20th, 2018

Nightlife NewsflashClub Electric Blue located in Patpong Soi 2 is closing down at the end of this month. My blogger buddy Stickboy Bangkok let me know just now. Club Electric Blue was launched in Patpong back in 2003 and over the years CEB was visited by many expats and tourists alike.

Daves Raves – Now which will be the next go-go bar to close in Patpong?

JUST IN: Club Electric Blue Closing Down – Stickboy Bangkok

After 15 years of serving up cold beers and hot girls, Club Electric Blue in Patpong will be no more come the end of the month. The surprise news about one of Bangkok’s best known go-go bars came from the owner this afternoon. In recent times the bar has struggled to capture the glory days …

Thank Tiger it’s Friday! Every Friday at Stumble Inn Bar, Tiger Pints are just 100฿ all night long until closing time.

Take advantage of the Super Saver from the generous guys at Stumble Inn, which is located next to Big Dogs Bar on Soi Nana.

Dave’s Raves – Bangkok does not need to be expensive, you just need to know where to go to get the drinks deals that’s all guys!


The Changing Face Of Nana Plaza

Monday, January 29th, 2018

Do You Remember This Bar?


Several moons ago Spellbound Go-Go Bar replaced Pretty Lady Bar, which was formerly known as Bottoms Up and also Pretty Girl. Then Spellbound became Bangkok Bunnies, as it is known today. Have you got that?

Some go-go bars keep the same name for ages and other go-go bars change name a number of times. It just depends how many times they change ownership, or have to be renamed for other reasons.

As a ‘sign’ of the times, go-go bars change names much more these days than they ever did. This is particularly true in Nana Plaza. Is variety the spice of life, or do you prefer consistency over change?

Bangkok Bar Closures Update

Friday, October 13th, 2017



UPDATE – A number of Bangkok bars and clubs will CLOSE tonight to respect the passing of His Majesty King Bhumibol on October 13th, 2016.

The beer bars, go-go bars, pubs and clubs, are all OPEN on Saturday, October 14th and on Sunday 15th. They are also OPEN next weekend (October 20-22). With so many public holidays in Thailand, I know it can be hard to keep track of them all.

The Royal Funeral of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej will officially take place on Thursday, October 26th. Everybody is advised to wear black clothing, as this will be an extremely sad time for Thailand.

This means that all entertainment venues will (most likely) be CLOSED on October 25th, 26th and 27th. It may well be a good time to take a break from Bangkok.

Dave’s Raves – It’s not demanded that foreigners wear black clothing (October 25-27), but it will be respected by the Thai people.

Stickmania (April 13th 2007)

Monday, September 4th, 2017

Written By Dave The Rave

Throughout the infinite realms of time and cyberspace there lurks an extremely powerful amorphous creature that is an almighty force to be reckoned with. This infinite amorphous creature that engulfs many of our lives is the limitless universe of the internet. Although no one person actually owns the internet, Bill Gates has given it a damned good try — bless him! Without any doubt whatsoever the internet has transformed and revolutionized how freely and effectively information is communicated today. Like a giant pouncing tiger the web world leapt into the millennium and multitudes of websites have emerged as a result. Therefore, this transformation has provided us with enormous information resources and that means massive amounts of information about Thailand. In the 1980’s when I first visited Thailand, there was no such online information because of course it did not exist. We simply followed the recommendations of a friend and perhaps read the odd travel guide. How things change hey? Nowadays every budding blogger has jumped on the bandwagon — whether we really want to know about Bill’s fanatical train-spotting, or Mary’s bone-crushing rock cakes! Totally captivating weblogs, or not as the case may be, it is all out there on the internet.

Whether you love or loathe webmaster columnists, there is one Thailand website that stands out predominantly. Crystal clearly Stickman’s website is the most popular of its genre. For many Thailand readers it is an essential information and news source that has its own dedicated cult following. Ever since I first encountered “Stickman’s Guide to Bangkok” I admit that I was hooked. I think that what makes this contagious creature tick is to do with the fact that the enigmatic Stickman is extremely engaging. Some guys have planned their entire Thailand trips and in some cases planned the BIG move from Farangland to Thailand, entirely from Stickman’s website. Without noticing it at first, slowly but surely Stickman draws you into his realm. “Welcome to my lair”, said the spider to the fly. It’s a scary thought isn’t it?

Personally, I for one remain both very pleased and so relieved to see the return of the main sections of Stickman’s website. What I do know is that I speak with great confidence, when I state that I am most certainly not the only person who shares these sentiments. The mighty army of Stickman fans (and a few foes too) were on the edge of their computer seats for four long months, as they were forced to await the outcome of let us say Stickman’s sojourn away from the cyber scene. Did Stickman’s cyberspacecraft come crashing down? No, it did not but the disruption caused by a certain “Stickman Stalker” just goes to prove what a powerful tool or weapon the internet really can be. Time is a great healer though and here we all are again. Although not quite back where we started, nonetheless we continue on our exciting journey through various time zones, and through the infinite realms of cyberspace. We have lift off… “Warp Factor II Captain Stickman!”


If we take a trip back in time a lot of readers would tune in to read Nite Owl, which used to be the ramblings of Bernard Trink. The old Nite Owl penned his weekly column for decades until he was finally axed by the powers that be at the Bangkok Post. Nite Owl had some fans but most people read Trink’s weekly solely in order to seek Thailand nightlife news. As a result of Nite Owl getting the chop there was a dark, void abyss, but then following that exit came the entrance of the modern day Thailand columnist — none other than Stickman. Incidentally, approaching six years ago saw the introduction of the enormously popular “Stickman Weekly” and this new weekly column took off like a cyberspace rocket.

OK, now fast forward to April 2007 and the “cyberspace chameleon” returns, but under another guise — Stick Mark II. Who is this mysterious Stick Mark II? Much speculation surrounds the identity of Stick Mark II, but you can be assured that Stickman will be watching like a hawk. Whether Stickman is editing it, writing it, or not writing it, he has returned and to me that is the main thing.


I will let you into a little secret that I persuaded Stickman that the Photo Gallery should be updated. The eagle-eyed among you Stickman fans will notice that a NEW Photo Gallery called “Thailand Characters Photo Gallery 2” has been added. In addition to this latest gallery full of terrific images, the entire Stickman Weekly archived columns for 2006 have returned. This means that avid readers can take a trip back in time to Stickmanland. It would appear that in observing my counterpart, I notice that Stick Mark II (whoever he/she is) has integrated images in with the text in his new weekly column. Stick Mark II’s very first column contained a lovely little travelogue about a sojourn to Isaan, that was complimented by some truly picturesque images. This gives a visual impression of an online magazine — may I say very well done!

On a personal note, as an ambitious newcomer to the web world I want everybody to know that Stickman has been very helpful, offering sound advice. My own website was launched in November 2006 and Stickman has been completely unselfish in offering me invaluable advice. Us online columnists/webmasters slave away to update our websites and I can tell you that it takes a HUGE amount of time and effort. As friends of mine have pointed out, we just hope that the masses appreciate this free information service. Take what free information, knowledge, and/or entertainment you can and if you are not satisfied then simply change channel. At times there can be some extremely offensive things written about webmasters, but mostly these “keyboard warriors” are invisible. Who are these people? Of course we like to receive constructive criticism, but “babble from the padded cell” is never useful to anybody whatsoever. It is so easy to “talk the talk” but few dare to “walk the walk” and show us how they think it is supposed to be done. Sometimes there is so much pent up venom in the emails that we cannot possibly comprehend what they are trying to say at all. That is clearly their problem. By all means readers should write constructive criticism to webmasters, but please be clear and specific in the message you are trying to convey.


Running a website about Thailand can often be a mixture of pleasure and pain. However, for the most part we enjoy what we do, because we know that the majority appreciate and welcome our online service. I firmly believe that for all the websites out there, you will not find many very good Thailand websites. In terms of accurate, up-to-date and informative Thailand websites, they remain very few and far between. We should therefore appreciate the likes of Stickman who has diligently churned out a weekly column year after year. Believe somebody in the know, when I say that it is no easy task. This is why I have the utmost respect for Stickman’s dedication and hard work over all these years. Stickman can at times be a controversial columnist, but speaking from experience, as a person Stickman is a real gentleman. As for Stickman’s success, the growth of his readership can only be termed as remarkable. Long live Stickmania!

Stickman’s Thoughts:

Gosh Dave, you have me positively blushing.

But you’re right, maintaining a website is a lot of effort, to say nothing of all of the other parts of our sites. You meet some great people along the journey, and a few ratbags as well. But that is all part of the ride!

Thailand Weather Warning

Being English, I guess I have that stereotypical obsession for the weather. It’s that time of year again, when the heavens open up and down comes the rain. The Thai authorities are telling us not to ignore flood warnings, especially in certain provinces, where flash floods can and do occur.


The rain in Thailand comes down suddenly and within minutes the roads can start to flood. If you ever get caught unprepared in a heavy downpour, you can buy an umbrella and/or a raincoat from the numerous 7 Eleven shops. Also, make sure during the rainy season you have suitable footwear.

Just be prepared, because the worst of the torrential rain is yet to come. The photo below depicts how Thai street vendors protect themselves and their goods against the elements. Rain does not stop play!

Cover Your What?

Saturday, May 13th, 2017

Well it’s been one hell of a week!  Which culminated with my entire website going on the Fritz on Friday night. Some frantic calls to the hosting provider and a few other people, and we managed to get the old girl back up again.

In this day an age, websites need updating technically, as well as regular content being posted. I am not a technical guy I just know the basics. But, me and the old girl have been through so much together since 2006 and I would be mortified if anything happened to my ole bird! 🙂

hillary 1


Anyway, I remember years ago in England, when I was a nightclub doorman, this massive Bentley rolled up one day. My mate nudged me and said, ‘Here that’s Sheikh Yamani,’  and I replied a bit too loud, ‘Shake your what?’

Well it happened it again the other day when Joe was telling me about the new event he has planned for the end of May at the Black Pagoda, which is called ‘Cover Your Stones’  and I blurted out, ‘Cover your what?’

The event Joe was telling me about should be good  because it’s two of Bangkok’s most famous cover bands;  the Bangkok Beatles and Sticky Fingers, going head-to-head at the Black Pagoda.

I am looking forward to this, as I have seen the Sticky Fingers at Clubhouse Sports Bar and I have to say they are very good. I love The Rolling Stones songs and this promises to be a great night.  The video of the last live music event they did at the Black Pagoda looks like it went very well.

For anyone interested in this event it’s on Saturday 27th March from 9:00 PM at the Black Pagoda, Patpong 2 – tickets can be purchased on the day, or in advance on Oneplace. You can also join the Facebook event

There were a couple of big events over the past week, one was the 4 Year Anniversary at Insanity Nightclub.  That was on Thursday and I had every intention of going, but I got totally waylaid at the other event, which was the opening of the new Hillary 1 at Rajah Complex on Soi Nana.

Although I was not there my good mate Toby was about and he said it was a great night at Insanity Nightclub. But, I doubt if he can remember all of it. Toby did  manage to capture this video footage, which looks like he had slightly more interesting evening than me at Hillary’s. However, I have to say I was very impressed with the new venue and the refurbishment job is superb. Mind you, I thoroughly enjoyed the eye candy of several red hot promo dolly birds. There were some interesting guests, including some of the bar owners from Nana Plaza.

More news and tittle tattle soon. Cheers!

WOW! THIS GIRL CAN DANCE 😀 #insanity #bangkok

Big Night On Patpong This Friday

Wednesday, March 29th, 2017

This Friday, March 31st should be a good night to hit Patpong as there is the 10 Year Anniversary Party of The Strip Bar, the 11 Year Anniversary Party of BarBar Fetish Club and it is Dan’s Birthday Bash at Electric Blue.

I have also been hearing good things about the Dragon’s Head next to Foodland. The small venue, formally G’s German Restaurant, is now a live music venue hosting some really good bands.  They recently started doing Chinese Food from the Golden Bowl, which is well known and has all the classic Western Style Chinese dishes.   Craft cocktails and special imported beers are on offer, with Singha Draft Beer at just 69฿ before 9:00 PM.  This is a great place for guys who want to relax and not get hassled for lady drinks.

BarBar Fetish Club, next to The Strip, will be putting on some special shows and there will be a free glass of bubbly for patrons.  Bangkok legends like Dean Barrett will probably be around, as this club is well know among the old hands.

Apparently new carpet has been fitted and one, or two of the girls there at the moment are hotter than mustard. Check out Mai… What a cracker!!!

mai at barbar fetish club

The Strip of course will be pumping it for their 10 Year Anniversary and my old mate and former co-owner Toby will  also be around.  There is a glass of bubbly on offer there for well wishers and it will be a chance to catch up with some old faces and Patpong regulars.

the strip patpong

Dan’s Birthday Bash at Electric Blue has its own Facebook event so well wishers can check in and let them know you are coming. They are offering 10฿ Tequila Shots, which is a real bargain in this day and age, and  they will likely be pushing the boat out, so there should be a good lineup of talent at all the venues this Friday.

If you see a bald bloke with a camera  having a good time… It’s probably me 🙂
