Review: Carre Blanc — Pattaya, Thailand
Carre Blanc is yet another blowjob bar in Pattaya, Thailand set in a location that is a bit out of the way for the average visitor. Because of this and the prevalence of other options closer to the beach the main customer base seems to be long term expats who mostly hail from Europe. That’s not to say that they don’t welcome new comers. Anyone who can find their way to the front door and ring the bell is admitted.
To be clear, the bar isn’t that far away or difficult to find its simply in a place where few punters would end up on their own. It’s not a part of the usual Pattaya walking trail.
The phrase Carre Blanc means “white square” in French. Apparently this refers to a famous film rather than any white substance that may find its way out onto the tiled floor of the bar. The name is used for quite a number of things around the world which makes finding information about the bar in question difficult even with the aid of the internet.
Carre Blanc is a moderately sized establishment. Just inside the entrance is a small bar and a few seats. To the left are a few couches where the half dozen or so women on staff hang around in between customers. To the far left are a group of love seats and couches that can be cordoned off from one another and the rest of the bar with the aid of curtains that hang from the ceiling.
The women that work the bar are friendly but not aggressive. Whoever is next in line will approach any new customer who enters but there’s nothing that says he can’t chose any other gal or gals of his liking. The gals at Carre Blanc don’t push for lady drinks or try to sell their services but it’s all available at a very reasonable price.
There always seems to be at least one or two guys at the buy having a drink. They are only occasionally joined by ladies. On the other hand the “service center” sees its fair share of use but is not overly busy. The place gets its fair share of customers which may be more than some would expect given the location and lack of obvious promotion.
Guys looking to get their mind blown at Carre Blanc will have to shell out 800 Baht ($25 US) for the pleasure. This is on the high end of the price range for these kind of services in Pattaya. It’s not much to complain about but it’s worth noting that the nearby Lolita’s still sticks with the old 600 Baht ($19) price.
The action at Carre Blanc straddles the line between the completely private model of places like Som’s and the in your face style of the Star of Light. It’s done on the main floor in spitting distance of the bar but it’s still isolated thanks to the black out drapes that have been installed. I guess it wouldn’t appeal much to the serious exhibitionist or the extreme privacy advocate but everyone else should be able to get on quite nicely. There are some acceptable short time quarters upstairs for guys who want to be all alone with their date or are in need of full service. The quoted rate for that is 1000 Baht ($32 US) all in.
The women at Carre Blanc tend to be in their 30’s with some a little younger and one or two possibly even older. None of the women are totally unattractive but there aren’t many lookers either. Considering what kind of place it is the looks could best be described as average.
Considering what kind of place it is again one realizes that looks may not be the most important thing. The main point of a bar like this is the easily accessible oral. It’s always difficult to judge the skill levels of an entire group of people but I’m always willing to take a dozen or two for the team. Different women do things differently with some being better than others but everyone at Carre Blanc knows what they are doing. If they didn’t they’d be working somewhere else.
There’s never any rush or clock watching at Carre Blanc. Bills are paid at the customers leisure after they’ve soaked in as much of the atmosphere as they’d like. This speaks a lot to its character. If better located places like the Pump Station put even a small portion of the effort in that they used to they would certainly be doing a lot better economically. Since they don’t their bar stays empty most times while Carre Blanc stays occupied despite its distance from the main entertainment center.
As a decent blowjob bar with a standard level of service and average prices I think it’s fair to give Carre Blanc an average score of two-and-a-half stars. If it was located somewhere else in the world I’d almost certainly score it higher but since it’s within walking distance of nearly a dozen similar bars this mid-range number seems fair.
