We’re Not A Mom And Pop Store!

Nana Plaza 2019 2 - We’re Not A Mom And Pop Store!

NANA ENTERTAINMENT PLAZA BANGKOK

 

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 🙂

 

Angelwitch Bangkok 4 - We’re Not A Mom And Pop Store!

“ANNIE” @ ANGELWITCH GO-GO BAR NANA PLAZA BANGKOK

 

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.

Pattaya Night Scenes Video

pattaya walking street - Pattaya Night Scenes Video

WELCOME TO THE NEON JUNGLE – WALKING STREET PATTAYA

Will Pattaya Become Family-Friendly?

Sometimes, we can get rather confused as to what Pattaya City is really like after nightfall. We are told by Thai media that Pattaya is becoming a family-friendly seaside resort. Well, it’s certainly not Butlin’s Holiday Camp!

Meanwhile, the Western media enjoy writing sensationalized tabloid news reports that fuel the fire by infuriating the Thai government.

Therefore, today I present recent video footage entitled, “Pattaya Night Scenes” produced by prolific videographer Bangkok 112

Here you can see the Pattaya nightlife scene and judge for yourself…

Walking Street Sneak Peek!

Saturday, July 28th, 2018

Whether you are a seasoned traveller or a newcomer to Thailand, you may well find yourself visiting Pleasure Playground, otherwise known as Pattaya.

Renowned in those vibrant, glossy travel brochures for its sun, sea and sand, Pattaya City is notoriously known for a very different ‘s’ which has been prolifically reported by numerous media sources. The sordid side of Pattaya continues to be roasted to cinders by foreign reporters. They act as though it is a new discovery.

However, despite all the pretentious window dressing by those who must be obeyed (nudge, nudge, wink, wink), this once tranquil fishing village still seeks a very different type of catch nowadays. Walking Street remains the equivalent version of Bangkok’s Patpong or London’s Soho.

Enjoy an after dark view of the Gawking, Hawking, Stalking, Walking Street!

Thailand’s Mourning Period Ends

Sunday, October 29th, 2017

Bangkok Nightlife Resumes

the big mango 1 - Thailand's Mourning Period Ends

The official mourning period for His Majesty King Bhumibol Aduljadej ends tonight. In what has been a tremendously emotional ceremony, the scale of the Royal Funeral showed just how much the late King Rama 9 was loved.

The spectacular funeral procession and sheer volume of people attending was nothing short of phenomenal. Worldly foreign travelers were reported as saying, they have never seen anything like it in their lives. One long-term expat said, “There was an ocean of Thai people, as far as your eyes could see.”

It is hoped that November will see the start of the tourist season, with cool, dry weather and a steady spike in tourists arrivals. Following a very tough year for the entertainment industry, it is very much anticipated.

Dollhouse Pattaya Opens VIP Lounge

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

The Dollhouse Go-Go Bar down in Sin City, otherwise known as Pattaya are opening a XXX Vip Lounge. The concept is based upon agogo meets gentlemen’s club, all rolled into one. Knowing these guys there will be a few surprises too.

This Friday, September 22nd is the Soft Opening of the XXX VIP Lounge, which promises to provide plenty of pampering and pleasure! This is a format the Thailand’s nightlife scene should have adopted many years ago.

Dollhouse Pattaya - Dollhouse Pattaya Opens VIP Lounge

The concept is to combine the best of East and West, with the raunchy bump ‘n’ grind of Thai gogo dancers and the Western strip club format. The modern day gentlemen’s clubs partly do this, but certainly not entirely.

Daves Raves – I wish The Dollhouse all the best for endeavouring to introduce something fresh to the gogo bar scene in Pattaya.

The Dollhouse is located down Soi 15 Walking Street.

How Much Is Enough?

Here’s the scenario… You are planning a trip to Pattaya City, but you don’t know how much spending money you will need.

Help is at hand, as the guys at Pattaya One News came up with the answer.

Some guys tell us that Pattaya is getting expensive, while others say it remains great bang-for-baht (pun intended). What is the truth?

Amazing Thailand Street Food Vendors

Street Eat Beat!

It is important what you believe these days, especially with the increasing amount of inaccurate reports and fake news in the various forms of media. It is so often the biggest media companies who are  the worst offenders.

Fairly recently it was reported that all Bangkok street food vendors were to be removed, but this did not happen. Sukhumvit Road street vendors remain out in force and I was out taking some photos this week to show you.

The string of street food vendor photos below are from Soi Nana…
