Review: Afterskool — Bangkok, Thailand

Located on the infamous Soi Cowboy in the Sukhumvit section of Bangkok, Afterskool is pretty popular little agogo that doubles that doubles as a handjob and blowjob bar.

No one should have any trouble finding their way to Afterskool, even in the twisted jungle of neon signs that is Soi Cowboy. If the big lettering out front doesn’t draw your attention surely some of the gals standing outside dressed in naughty little schoolgirl outfits will.

The establishment is smaller than many go gos but there’s plenty of room to maneuver. The layout will be familiar to anyone who has been in either Toy Bar or Jungle Jim’s. On one side you have a long bar with plenty of seats. On the other you have elevated cushioned seating and a stage in the middle that has room for two dancers at a time.

Don’t let the compact nature of the joint fool you. The staff is quite large. At any time there may be as many as three dozen women working at Afterskool. Not all will be dancers of course. Just as many will be in more “normal” attire, working at various tasks from mixing drinks to managing the gals to helping with the hands on services.

Afterskool has a good atmosphere. The women are always cheerful and up for fun and the dancers never look too bored. It would be a good enough place to stop in for a quick drink or perhaps to take one of the better looking ladies out for a while, but the fact that it offers extra services on premises makes it even more of an attraction.

The women who work at Afterskool usually approach customers as they enter, either alone or in group. For some reason though this never feels as aggressive as it does at some other places where such activities can be a real put off. Here the women do a good job of balancing friendliness and desire to have fun with their need to make a living. How do they make a living? Through the purchase of lady drinks.

Beer and other customer drinks are pretty well priced at Afterskool, especially consider what the wet stuff is going for at some other Soi Cowboy establishments nowadays. Ladydrinks are also reasonably priced, unless you go for the always popular tequila shots which are something like 220 Baht a piece ($7 US). If you sit with a group of gals that can add up very quick.

The kinds of hands on action that takes place at the handjob bars on Cowboy is available here. It gets busy enough inside and the girls are usually good enough at hiding things that it goes unnoticed, but those with a keen eye may spot it going down from time to time. The cost for this is the amount of lady drinks required to keep all involved satiated until the fun is finished plus a small tip to those who put in the most work.

The real fun at Afterskool however is of the oral variety. Things don’t work as they do in the straight forward BJ bars, with customers plonking down a predetermined amount of money and then getting serviced at the bar in or a private booth somewhere. At Afterskool things are negotiable. The customer is expected to keep the drinks flowing for the lady providing the service along with a tip that may be anything from 600 to 1000 Baht. If the action takes place in the “naughty boy” corner at the end of the bar (where things from the waist down are blocked by a small dividing wall but everything else is out in the open) that’s it. If the action takes place somewhere else in the bar, one or two more ladies will probably be needed to help facilitate things and build a human privacy fence. These gals usually won’t expect tips, but they will expect lady drinks for the duration.

Again on the staff, it’s rather large considering the size of the place. Most of the dancing girls are quite attractive. They range in age from 19 on up to the mid-30’s, though more seem to be on the lower end of that scale. They wear school uniform themed outfits with black stockings that may be a slight bit beat up upon close inspect but are still sexy enough. The non-dancing gals are mostly average at best, but they do have great attitudes. I’ve found that some of the least attractive have the best skills. As usual, the girls behind the bar who range from below average to hot aren’t available for quick activities. You could probably get with some if you put in time and energy but that’s not something I would bother with.

Having a session at Afterskool that ends up with a few rounds of drinks and a little extra liquid for one of the ladies can end up costing the equivalent of anywhere from 50 to 100 US dollars. That sounds alright when compared with some of the action in the Western world but is much more than you’d pay at any dedicated blow bar around town.

As an entertainment venue, Afterskool has a lot to offer both for men who are new to the scene and old hands looking for something a little out of the ordinary. Taking the prices, the staff, the location and the competition all into account I think Afterskool deserves an overall score right in the middle of the scale. That’s why I’m giving it two and a half stars.

Afterskool is a fun place to visit once or twice, but after that the routine gets a little old in my opinion. Guys looking for go go bars have better options right there on Soi Cowboy. Guys looking for BJ bars also have better and more inexpensive options within walking distance.

Review of Afterskool Bar Soi Cowboy Bangkok Thailand


  1. smoothie says:

    Wish I could have found some of the fun and positives you found in this bar, Rocket, but I can only say I experienced about as blatant a rip-off as I’ve ever experienced in a Bangkok go-go bar at Afterskool. Despite a dozen or more trips to Thailand in the past and now living here full-time for almost two years, I had never been in this bar. So, a few months ago I ventured in and immediately got the surround-the-new-customer routine from girls who seemed to appear out of nowhere. No problem, that isn’t the kind of thing that bothers me, really, since it is easy enough to say, “thanks, but no thanks” to most of them and choose one or two who intrigued me to buy Lady Drinks for. Which is what I did.

    Of course, the two I chose immediately started in very heavy with the lobbying for a threesome of sexual bliss with them and me in a “private room” in the back. Again, no problem. I understood this was their and my goal in the first place. Never having been in this bar before I assumed the words “private room” meant that there was a, you know, “private room” somewhere on the premises. I had heard there was supposed to be something known as the Naughty Boy Corner in this bar as I see you referred to in your review. But, not being much of an exhibitionist, I had no interest in that but was certainly interested in the idea of spending time with these ladies in a “private room”. I asked at least three times for a clearer description of this “private room”; was there a bed? “Yes” A toilet and shower? “Yes!” There would be no rush, the three of us could spend at least a half-hour or 45 minutes in this “private room” enjoying each other’s company, each girl taking turns showing me their highly-touted (by them) oral skills? “Yes!!”

    Sounded great to me. I negotiated another round of Lady Drinks and a shared 1,400b for the girls (700b each) to spend a half-hour to 45 minutes in this perfectly acceptable-sounding “private room” in the back of the bar. But first, the girls said, I needed to sit on this stool at the end of the bar, right over there, so the girls can get the room and me ready for the fun. Ok. I sit on the stool and in about as rushed a job of unzipping my fly and pulling down my pants as I’ve ever had done, the less attractive of the two girls dropped to her knees and began tugging and pumping me, orally, as mechanically and unsexy a fashion as I’d ever felt. That is when it dawned on me that THIS was the “private room”…the Naughty Boy Corner. There was no other “room” in the joint, only the Naughty Boy Corner. Well, as I said I am not into the exhibitionist thing, guess I am not nearly the Naughty Boy I’d need to be to relax into a blowjob sitting on a stool in what I can only say was full view of the row of booths on the other side of the room and everyone in them facing me. Still, I thought I ought to at least give it the old college try, but if there was any possibility of reaching a happy ending the better looking of the two girls would have to start taking her turn and soon. And I was sincerely hoping she would be better at it than the automaton girl pumping away relentlessly down below. I said, “ok. Time to switch places.” Nope. Ain’t gonna happen. Suddenly, the concept of both of these girls doing anything to my willy was out of the question. The less attractive of the two was going to do all the “work” while the better looking one was apparently going to just stand there and watch, not even standing there between me and the booths and the entrance to the bar to provide that aforementioned “human privacy fence”. No, she stood on the other side of me, apparently more interested in hiding behind me and using me as her “human privacy fence”.

    Anyway, after a minute or three of that little drama, finding out there was no “private room” and that this was no way-no how going to be a threesome but just me and the less attractive of two ladies, and I just put up my hands and said, “That’s it, I’m outta’ here.”

    I pulled up my pants, put 700b on the bar (at least one girl spent a moment or two with my dick in her mouth) and told them, “Look, you lied to me at least three times about the “private room” and that both of you girls would be involved. I believe my bar tab is about 400b-500b by now. Here’s 700b. You two figure out who gets what of the change.” And, with that, I pulled up my pants, zipped up my fly and walked straight out of that rip-off joint, never to darken its door again. There was not even the slightest protest from either of the girls about my way of settling up since they both knew they had scammed me from the get-go and they had nothing on their side of the argument.

    I wish it hadn’t turned out that way because I did see some cuties in there somewhere even though I have no idea where they disappeared to as soon as I chose the two ladies I ended up with. Maybe to that mythical “private room” I’d been told about. I have since never hesitated to advise anyone and everyone I meet who talks about going barhopping on Soi Cowboy to avoid Afterskool like the plague of customer scams it was for me.

    This isn’t about Afterskool, but I couldn’t find a review of Baccara (nor a general outline of sex in Bangkok), so I wasn’t sure where to post this comment. I’m dropping it here since we’re talking about Soi Cowboy anyway.

    I went to Baccara yesterday night. I had heard that it’s now being rocked by Japanese with money to burn, and what I saw yesterday seems to confirm just that. About 60% of the customers were Asian and the remaining 40% white dudes. Every single Japanese had a girl sitting by his side. Not even one white guy was interacting with the girls. The contrast was staggering, and funny in a way.

    I took it as a call to action, so I bought a drink to the hottest girl on stage, charmed her with my best game and proceeded to barfine her. It took me about half an hour… but only because I wanted to finish my drink first, so I was taking it slow. The girl was ready to pack her things after 5 minutes lol. As we walked out hand in hand, I noticed more than a few Japanese guys staring at me confused. Mission accomplished.

    The barfine was 600 baht and the girl asked 2500 for short time, which sounded reasonable to me, considering her looks and the fact that it’s 2000 a pop at most oilies. She was easily a 9/10 and it felt like I was the one ripping her off lol.

    I was hungry, so first we stopped at a restaurant close by to grab a bite. As we chatted, I realized she was fun to be around, sweet and surprisingly intelligent. She made such an impression on me that I told her I was interested in long time, to which she enthusiastically agreed. Long time was a whopping 5000 baht… but I didn’t care and I didn’t even try to haggle. I wanted her badly. Not sure who put a spell on whom, we were probably one-upping each other constantly, which is just another way to say we hit it off.

    Best 5,000 baht I’ve ever spent. Goddammit the sex was amazing. She made me cum multiple times in multiple ways and I returned the favor. No holes were barred, we went at it like it was our last night on Earth. Her body was a sight to behold: beautiful enhanced breasts, perfect butt, and silk-smooth skin.

    She had previously told me that she would leave at 9 am, but she ended up staying until well past 10 am and she readily accepted my suggestion to have breakfast together. On the street, she steered me toward a corner where a woman was selling dresses. I thought “Here we go, she is already trying to make me buy her things”. To my surprise, she paid for the dress with her own money, and made me feel guilty about that thought. The dress was quite sexy and I made her promise that she’s going to wear it for me on our next encounter. Also that next time I’m going to come on her face. She said yes to everything. By now I was basically falling in love with her lol.

    During breakfast I picked her brain on what it’s like to work in a go go bar, how she entered that world and things like that. Some of the things she said were quite interesting. I also learned that she is well traveled, that she is currently getting a university degree and she operates a small business, all the while sleeping with some 30-35 men per month, the majority of whom are Asian. Don’t look for her at Baccara tonight… this weekend she’s completely booked by a Korean guy who’s paying her 8000 baht per day. We talked about many other things as well, but this is all I’m going to share here. I’ll keep the rest for myself.

    We are even planning a short trip to my home country in the near future. I have probably lost my mind, but it’s not like I lack experience with women (I’m rapidly approaching the triple digit for the number of sexual partners… and minutes before meeting her yesterday, I was at Lolita’s in Soi 8 cumming in a girl’s mouth while making up with a second one. I also had plenty of GFEs in the past, especially in Indonesia and the Philippines.). She is just that amazing. Some of you older guys are probably thinking “meh… been there done that”, but I’m 27 years old and this is only my second visit to Bangkok, so this stuff is still pretty new to me.

    THAT glass ceiling. Greatest idea ever haha.

      Thanks for the report. I will do a round up on Bangkok go go bars and another one on Bangkok as a whole some time in the future. I want to get more individual location reviews out of the way first though. Baccara has been dominated by Asian guys for as long as I can remember though more non-Asians seem to go there than Rainbow 4 in Nana. I think Bacarra and the Rainbow bars probably have the best looking women on staff overall but they get so damn crowded that I usually give them a miss. For whatever reason a lot of Japanese guys like to drink surrounded by women. This may have something to do with the popular kyabakura culture in Japan. Obviously this isn’t as common for Westerners. I’ve become rather close with some go go dancers over the years and the younger and thinner ones have told me lots of stories of being barfined by Japanese guys who drank themselves silly then went straight to their rooms and fell asleep without ever having sex. I can’t recall hearing any similar stories about Western guys. Cheers.

    • EuropeanGuy says:

      Baccara wasn’t too crowded yesterday, there was plenty of space, but then again I went around 2 AM on a Thursday. The girl actually told me a similar story this morning, about an Asian guy who barfined her and four other girls, but was too drunk to even notice what was going on. She pretty much hid in the bathroom and left her colleagues to service him. Cheers.

    • rockit says:

      Ha! I’m getting geared up to publish some new books for the first time in years. The stories working women could tell would certainly be more interesting. Cheers.

    Before there was an excellent girl named Rin working there, anyone knows where she works now?
