Soi Cowboy Nightseeing Tour

Wednesday, January 21st, 2009

What do most people do on their days off? I suppose they relax, watch TV, surf the internet, spend quality time with their other half, go shopping, visit their favourite restaurant, pursue their favourite sports or hobbies, or go to see a movie. What does Dave The Rave do? He goes on a barman’s holiday, (I don’t drive buses) and visits the go-go bars in Soi Cowboy. Being the Go-Go Guru, old habits die hard, which is not surprising. And so, on a night off from my duties in Angelwitch, I decided to meet up with Sanook Shaun in Soi Cowboy. I know I’m fortunate to have this lifestyle, but I like to think my ‘sacrifice’ is for you guys! (more…)

SOI COWBOY BANGKOK THAILAND 02 - Thailand Nightlife Newsflash

FIRE ENGULFS RAW HIDE GO-GO BAR IN SOI COWBOY

An electrical fire broke out in Raw Hide Go-Go Bar in Soi Cowboy late last night. Fire spread quickly as Raw Hide was engulfed with flames and thick black smoke. Thai emergency services had the blaze under control in 15 minutes. Fortunately, nobody was injured. At this stage it is difficult to tell exactly how much damage has been done. This comes at a time when Raw Hide Go-Go Bar was starting to do well.

THAI POLICE PROBE BANGKOK NIGHTCLUB INFERNO

Thai Police are invetigating the fire, which killed 65 people at Santika Club in Ekamai, Bangkok. The horrific inferno happened just after midnight, while a crowd of 1,000 people celebrated the New Year countdown. This is a terrible tragedy. Our condolences go out to the families of the victims.

Here is a news report by BBC NEWS

(Please note that I did not post on New Year’s Day out of respect for the victims of the Santika Club fire. RIP)

BANGKOK BARS ARE SERVING ALCOHOL TONIGHT

To end on a brighter note, Bangkok’s bars, go-go bars and nightclubs will be serving alcohol as normal. Police papers were not issued (as previously thought), so it is business as usual tonight and on January 3rd and 4th. There might be one night next week, when a ‘NO ALCOHOL’ dry day is declared, due to the election of the new Bangkok Governor. As always, I will keep you posted.
