Review: Red Point — Pattaya, Thailand

In a recent post I wrote “there’s only so much that can be said about Pattaya Thailand’s infamous Soi 6.” Apparently the limit has not been reached. As long as I have interesting or notable things to write about I will keep on keeping on. Hopefully the readers will come along for the ride.

Red Point is probably one of the most well known bars on Soi 6 and there’s are good reasons for that. One is that it’s bigger than a lot of other bars. Another reason is that there are always rows of women sitting outside. You might say all bars on Soi 6 have women seated outside and you’d be right, but the women at Red Point tend to be a little more attractive on average.

Notice I write average. There are all sorts of women on staff and one man’s beauty is another man’s no thank you mam. In general most of the women that work at Red Point are fit and in their early to mid twenties. Quite a few have children but even many of those who do show no obvious signs of motherhood.

The women at Red Point Bar aren’t necessarily the friendliest bunch on the block but neither are they all cold and distant. It’s always tough to characterize an entire staff and even if it could be done precisely it wouldn’t tell the whole story. Surely the women working Soi 6 are generally all about their money. That goes for any job in the world. There are always gems to be found and genuine intimate moments can be fished out at times by those who desire them.

Soi 6 is known most for its straight shooting atmosphere. Everyone knows what’s going down and there are no need for lies about love and relationships. If a guy has the money he can get some honey. The women who work at Red Point Bar epitomize what the place is all about. Some may find this to their liking while others will not. There’s a place and time for everything I guess.

The large bar area on the ground floor of Red Point is dark but well kept. It’s usually empty except for one or two punters there to share a drink with a gal before or after a session. One could certainly show up to have a drink and nothing more but that would be missing the point.

Customers can select one of the women sitting outside to join them inside or they can take whoever is next in line. Then they can purchase a drink for themselves and if they’d like a 100 Baht (around $3 US) lady drink for their new partner. If they’d like to go a little further they can indicate this to their gal of the hour and then move on to one of the rooms upstairs. Guys who don’t want to stop for a drink before moving upstairs are under no obligation to do so. They can simply find one of the women downstairs and ask them if they would join them upstairs.

There was a time when the fees on Soi 6 were basically set. In recent years 1000 Baht ($31 US) got a guy a barfine, a room for an hour and and hour of a service provider’s time. The barfine remains the same at most places but Red Point has raised it to 350 Baht. Women on Soi 6 are now asking for various prices depending on any number of factors. At some of the older establishments the 1000 Baht all inclusive price is still standard. At places like Red Point it’s not.

At Red Point and a few other nearby venues women now often ask for 1000 Baht. Added to the 350 Baht given to the bar this brings the grand total to 1350 Baht ($42 USD). This rise is prices is unavoidable and it’s obviously still within reason but it is worth noting. Regular customers, guys who go way back and those willing to haggle may be able to get the prices down a bit. Whether or not that’s something that should be done is a debate for another time. The barfine is not up for discussion.

Payment for drinks and barfine at Red Point is usually asked for up front but regular or trusted customers can pay on the way out. The women are typically given their money after the fun is over.

Possibly the best thing about Red Point bar is that their rooms are very nice for the area. This doesn’t mean that they are 5 star suites suitable for dignitaries but they are a huge step above most other short time quarters on the street. The rooms are large, clean, well decorated and well kept. The bathrooms could fit in any quality hotel without anyone blinking an eye.

Service provided at Red Point is typically good. There will always be exceptions but most of the gals know how to get the job done. It’s not the kind of place where a “girlfriend experience” is common but it’s not a hole in the wall pump and dump either. Like I said, the women know their job and are willing to work it. Rumor has it that a higher than normal number of women at working at Red Point also provide A level service though this may come at a premium.

Once the deed is done things can go where they will. In most cases this means the punter heads back out the door and the gal heads back to the front to rejoin the line up and find another customer. This is the world of Soi 6.

With a nice bar area, large and skilled staff, and large clean rooms, Red Point Bar is a cut above the average Soi 6 short time shack. Because of that I give it an above average score of three stars. If they stuck to the 300 Baht barfine I would probably have given them another half star but maybe I’m just living in the past.

Red Point Bar, Soi 6, Pattaya, Thailand. Open seven days a week from around noon until after midnight.

    Went there last month. Got a really cold vibe from a smoking hot girl. She admitted the punters tell her she seems unhappy. Then the bar not so politely advised me she was there for the money and not at all interested in finding a boyfriend. Fair enough. But the tension was thick enough to turn me limp, so I left. Shame. These probably are the hottest, classiest looking girls on the strip. The outfits are sexy too. Maybe I’ll try it again someday, but I’d say it’s mostly business at Red Point. It seems slightly out of place on the soi and more akin to a fishbowl. Don’t go there if you like to party.

      I don’t think many women in the field work for fun. Money seems to be the primary motivation. Cheers.

    Spot on review, well done again Rockit. I was there last night and it was clearly the best looking girls on the street. Enthusiasm was not exactly the strong point at first but I expected it and thanks to my eI fancied was busy oxperience and fair level of thai language I was able to make it a little bit more fun and relaxed. Not with the cashier though this one can’t smile , that much that it is even comical. The pick up was a bit tricky , because the oneAbout the service, you can get an hour solid of skilled sex and this is the point. On top of the 1350b I had to pay an extra 200b for the A level.The 1550b fare was arranged downstairs before hand in a polite and relaxed manner but in front of the never ever smiling super mean cashier. In the end I was so pleased by the session that I gave and extra 300b tip. So to me, this place really stands out in soi 6 and is clearly worth it for a short time.

    sorry about the editing something went wrong, anyway, her name was giap and she was busy on her phone when I passed by, so the tricky part was to have her come in with me, but I just told the one that followed me that I was interested in her colleague. I understood from giap that they do an average of 4/5 customers a day and they are sitting there for about 12 h, so of course it will take some effort to brake the ice and make it less mechanical, but it is possible. To make it easier most speak good english.
