Sex is still on sale in Pattaya, Thailand

Lucky Love bar on Soi 6 in Pattaya Thailand

Lucky Love Bar on Soi 6 has the widest variety of uniforms in town and they are all sexy.

The seaside Thai city of Pattaya has received a lot of coverage on this website and for good reason. Not only is the city home to more adult entertainment venues than most others around the world is also one of the most known and visited destinations by English speaking people from other countries like the United States, Australia, United Kingdom and Singapore. Since the content on this website is written in English I imagine many people from those countries will find what they see here entertaining.

Rockit Reports is international in scope. While I will keep expanding the coverage on this website to every corner of the world as time goes on I will also continue to write about places like Pattaya that have already reported on in some detail.

I first published a summary of the sex shops in Pattaya way back in 2012. That was followed by a report on inexpensive sex services in Pattaya in 2013 and an overview of the go go bars in Pattaya in 2014. Today I present the following news and information report which should serve to entertain and also show just how much some things can stay the same while others go through all sorts of transformations.

Area 51 is a big new go go bar that opened on Pattaya Sai Song Soi 13 across from LK Metro sometime last year. It is a big spacious bar with plenty of seating but it doesn’t seem to get very busy even with waitresses and dancers standing outside all night trying to convince guys to enter. There are some attractive dancers on staff. The short shorts and belly shirts they wear reveal that many are also single mothers. The place bills itself as a “lounge” but as far as I can tell this simply means they have a large seating area that opens early in the day before the dancers get on stage.

Zero is another new go go bar that recently opened on Soi Bukhao just around the corner from the agogo laden LK Metro. The place has a good location but since it is outside of the big L where most go go bars are located it seems to get a little less traffic than one might expect. There are around two to three dozen women on staff with most being average in looks but there are some nineteen and twenty year old women working there with the kind of great bodies that used to be common in Thai dancing bars. The design of the bar is probably its best feature with two sets of seats directly to the sides of the stage given customers a great view no matter where they sit. Bar fines cost 800 Baht and drink prices are normal for the area.

Silver Star 1 and Silver Star 2 continue to operate as they always have with topless dancers entertaining a never ending stream of punters. This old Pattaya style continues to live on in some parts of the city despite or perhaps because of things like the male attendant giving shoulder rubs in the bathroom at Silver Star 2 and the wafting sewage smell at Silver Star 1.

Shooters on the east end of Soi 7 is nice bar that always seems to be busy. While one reason for that is probably the advertising campaigns they run in the city having a team of the most attractive coyote dancers outside of Walking Street can’t hurt. Even still I imagine that a lot of weathered old hands walk right past the place and down the open air beer bars where they can be sure they will score and shell out a lot less money in the process.

The infamous Soi 6 continues to operate as it has for years with scantily clad women (and some ladyboys) standing in front of dozens of bars trying to pull guys inside. I have reported on many Soi 6 bars but there are dozens that haven’t even been mentioned on this site yet.

The gals at Lisa Bar might not be the most attractive but their outfits are among the most revealing. The regular uniform consist of a fishnet “dress” draped over a bra and thong panties which doesn’t prevent the women who work the bar from running into the middle of the street to grab some food or a potential client.

The uniforms at Lucky Love Bar down the street are more subdued but still quite sexy. The colorful outfits change from one day to the next but never cease to look good on the attractive group of gals that work the place.

Pook Bar remains a popular ladyboy bar and its obvious why. Even though I have never entered the place it is easy enough to see from a passing glance that the place has some of the most ladylike ladyboys in town on staff.

Lately Soi 6 does seem a little more quiet than it has been in the past but since tourism numbers are apparently down across the board in Thailand that isn’t too much of a surprise. Although prices went up a few years back they have stayed steady since. Today drinks go for the same rates they did in 2014 and a short private period in the rooms above almost every bar continue to go for 1300 Baht ($37 USD) all in with some veterans still able to swing it for less in places.

Walking Street is the center of attraction for most visitors even though a lot of locals and regulars now avoid the place in favor of some of the greener pastures mentioned above. Agogos seem to get a later start now than they did in years past with most still setting up as late as eight o’clock at night.

Bar fines rise like the cost of living with increases coming quicker than I can track. More than a few go go bars on Walking Street now want between 1,000 and 2,000 Baht for the privilege of leaving with a lady on staff. A new category of “models” has appeared at some go gos too. The price to leave a bar with a “model” is higher than the barfine for a regular woman on staff though I’m not sure why. As far as I can tell the model designation indicates nothing more than a taller than average gal or a dancer with fake tits.

For their parts the women working Walking Street go go bars generally still ask for the same kind of compensation they did a few years ago though some of the newer more popular gals in their early twenties may ask for as much as 6,000 Baht for a short time session.

Go go bars on the side alleys leading off of Walking Street have the best prices and most active and adventurous women on staff but things have been toned down over the years. Misty’s has dozens of good looking ladies dancing on its many stages throughout the night but adult activity in the bar itself has been cut down to the point of nonexistence. The same goes for the nearby Superbaby agogo where things used to get pretty wild at times.

A sort of blow row has arisen on Soi Full Love Inn with Club 4, 007 and the soon to be reviewed Pirate Club now operating side by side on an otherwise nondescript road.

Another set of bars doubling as suck shops have cropped up on and around Soi Lengkee. A second Telephone Bar joins Lolita’s Pattaya, Le Private and Club Excite to help make another part of town a little more interesting. All of these places will be reviewed on this website in the near future.

Last but not least I’ll mention the historic Pump Station which probably should have a plaque out front honoring its long storied existence. The place looked to be on its last leg when I published a piece on it in 2013 that looked more like an obituary than a review. More recently it was totally redone and now seems to have quite a bit of life. A larger staff probably has more to do with the rediscovered popularity the place seems to be enjoying than a fresh coat of paint but I have no way to know for sure. While there are something like ten women working the night shift now there aren’t any real stunners. I guess that doesn’t matter so much though at a place like the Pump Station. The days of the renown cut outs and curtains under the bar will probably never return but it is something to see the place back on its feet and hoping most nights of the week.

Obviously this doesn’t cover all of the adult entertainment in the city. The entirety of this website still hasn’t come close to achieving that even though I have been writing about Pattaya here for years. This is just a brief update. More will come in the future. Stay tuned.

    Nice round-up Rockit. It will come in handy the next time I visit Thailand.

    It was a really great post. I have been reading your post from the last three years and I have also posted a couple of times before. Can you tell me the reason behind the tourists numbers going down across the boards in Thailand inspite of a thriving nightlife? I have been researching on Thailand nightlife from the last five years and as far as I know, the number of bar girls have kept increasing every year. Also can you provide some updates on the famous massage parlors like Sabai Dee and Sabai Room? Thanks.

    • rockit says:

      I think that some things like the political events of the last few years and the global economic downturn have combined to lower the number of tourists visiting Thailand. Then again I am no travel agent or immigration agent. I am simply going on my intuition. Cheers.

    Hi Rockit,

    There is a parlor Playtime in Pattaya. Can you please review it.

  4. EuropeanGuy says:

    Currently in Pattaya (for the first time!).

    Walking Street is a circus, not to mention a total tourist trap. The waitstaff, mamasans and bouncers are rude beyond belief. Most go go dancers are mediocre to average looking, and the few attractive ones are filled with silicone. Sapphire Club has by far the best looking girls, but they have terrible attitudes and seem very choosy about who they go with. The Iron Club has ptobably the best layout and design of any bar in the street, but other than that it’s no better. Baccara is a slightly larger version of its Bangkok counterpart, but still a trap. All other bars in WS are nothing to write home about. The highlight of the street is iBar, where it’s easy to pick up some very cute freelancers (or go go dancers off their shift) at very reasonable prices (got one yesterday for 2,000 baht long time, and I’ve heard of guys managing to get girls for 1,500 long time). Unfortunately iBar is plagued by the same problems of most every venue in the area: rude staff, the occasional scam, and very poor service overall.

    Soi 6 is very quiet but that’s actually a plus in my opinion. Some decent looking girls here and there; very relaxed atmosphere. Arond 1,600 baht for a short time romp upstairs and a couple drinks. Probably the best deal in the city.

    Overall Pattaya doesn’t live up to its reputation, I’m sure the city has seen better days. I’m going to try a soapy massage today and then check out LK Metro, just so that I can tick them off my list… but I don’t have high expectations at this point.

    Still, the city is nice anf laid back. It sure beats Bangkok in that regard, and the people are way less stressed out than in the capital (thank god for that).

    • rockit says:

      Thanks for the detailed report. Walking Street is definitely tourist oriented. Oddly that doesn’t translate into great service as it does in most places dependent on tourism. Of course people continue to go there so there must be something drawing them in. People who live in Pattaya or visit regularly are more likely to visit Soi 6 or the gentlemen’s clubs like 007 when they want to go out. Cheers.

    Avoid Wildcats Agogo like the plague. A waitress brought to my table a lady drink I didn’t order. I immediately stood up, paid the bill and left. I made a big show of not leaving a tip, stuffing all the change into my pocket, down to the last coin. Unfortunately, I doubt this will teach her a lesson… They know that tomorrow a new wave of tourists will arrive, fresh off the plane. I thought Patpong in Bangkok was bad enough, but Walking Street is truly showing me the lenghts Thai people will go for a few bahts. Sad!

    Here’s the thing. This was my 3rd consecutive night in WS, and every time I played the dumb tourist, to see how they would react and conduct a little “research” if you will. I showed up well dressed (long sleeve shirt, nice shoes) and I told the girls I was there on holiday and that it was my first time in Thailand (which it wasn’t, of course). The results was predictable, but still disappointing: they have no shame in inflating the bill with unordered drinks, “forgetting” to bring the change, and every other trick in the book.

    I suppose you could go there dressed like a bum and/or be very firm and assertive… but what’s the point anyway? Virtually all the gogos in WS are overpriced and staffed with average looking girls.

    Stay away from Walking Street.

    Soi Chaiyapoon is full of poon! Kidding aside… Lots of massage places in the area, quite inexpensive (around 1500 baht all in), and a bunch of ladies of all shapes and sizes to choose from. I took one with massive jugs and had a good time.

    Soi LK Metro is even better. The girls are actually hotter than in Walking Street, 100x more pleasant to talk to, and the drinks are half the price! I’ll be damned. Anyway, I’m starting to get the full picture of Pattaya. It seems clear to me that LK Metro and surroundings are the place to go, with the addition of Soi 6 for the daytime.

    Coyote bar in LK is great… some very pretty gals there. A bottle of Singha is only 85 baht and the atmosphere is very relaxed. I’ll check out a few other bars tonight.

    • rockit says:

      Thanks for the continued commentary. Did you make it to any of the gentlemen’s clubs or blowjob bars? Cheers.

    • EuropeanGuy says:

      I couldn’t find the time (or the energy for that matter… I’ve been averaging 3 girls a day for the past week). In fact, I barely scratched the surface of LK Metro. I left Pattaya earlier today.

      I liked Area 51 because it doesn’t get busy. The girls were very agreeable. I only intended to stop by for a drink, but I ended up playing four games of pools with a nice gal and getting her LINE.

      Later on I went to Crystal Club and by a stroke of luck I met a shy (and very drunk) girl who had only been working for one month and had never been barfined yet, despite being quite attractive. We hit it off and I took her long time. Best sex I’ve had in years… She has a future in porn.

      I’m glad my holiday ended on a high note after a terrible start. My only advice to Pattaya newbies is not to waste money and time in Walking Street. Head straight for LK Metro!

    • rockit says:

      Thanks for the continued comments on your trip to Pattaya. It was interesting to hear your feedback on the city. Cheers.

    • EuropeanGuy says:

      While I’m at that, I’ll make a few observations about Bangkok. I spent 3 nights in the capital on my way to Pattaya, and I visited Nana and Cowboy.

      The quality of the girls in the go go bars keeps going down. I’d say almost half of them currently border on the ugly. Sure, beauty is in the eye of the beholder yadda yadda, but in all frankness I didn’t see much eye candy.

      The lineup at Baccara stayed remarkably consistent. Many of the girls currently employed were already there 2 years ago. Of course there were also some newcomers, but none of them were particularly stunning. In fact, some of the prettiest gals have left, including the two girls that were the hottest in my opinion. (Unless of course they were on holiday or something, but I didn’t see them in 3 consecutive visits).

      I finally got around to stopping at Crazy House (I’d never been there before). I really liked the fact that the girls bare it all (it’s the only bar in Bangkok with full nudity as far as I know), but the atmosphere inside was a bit too tense for my taste. Lots of guys acting though for no apparent reason. It certainly didn’t help that when I left the bar, the bouncer put a hand on my shoulder and unceremoniously demanded a tip (I gave him 100 baht and he let me go, so it wasn’t much hassle, but still). Fun place, but I wonder if it isn’t a bit too hardcore.

      Tilac, Shark and Suzie Wong had very unimpressive lineups.

      In Nana it’s business as usual, I had a good time there but nothing memorable happened. Butterflies is a new bar that recently opened on the 3rd floor (same ownership as Billboard); there are a handful of cuties inside, although for the most part they are average looking. I’m not sure if I like the layout (two separate stages… sitting close to one makes it impossible to keep an eye on the other). A fat and ugly waitress asked me to buy her a drink, and the girls aren’t shy about tag-teaming customers… but these occurrences are now so common across the board that I wonder if any bars are exempt from this (one exception is Baccara, which is very well managed and doesn’t allow such behaviors).

      Suckers went back to its old name, Lollipop (good call). Everything else is much the same as it was on my last visit, about 8 months ago.

      Is it only my impression or African streetwalkers are increasing in number? They can now be found regularly not only in Soi 4, but also near Soi Cowboy, and at several other points on the stretch of Sukhumvit Road that connects the two red light areas.

      Nice to see that the street vendors are still peddling fake Viagra, sex toys and old porn movies (I wonder if anyone ever buys those things?). Sukhumvit just wouldn’t look the same without them. As for street food vendors and mobile bars, they are now few and far between, which I can’t decide if it’s a good thing or not. It’s certainly easier to walk now, compared to only a couple years back.

      I heard Insanity is about to move location. I visited the current location (first time there) and I didn’t like it at all. The crowd was too young for me, and the customers mostly Korean. I also didn’t spot any obvious hookers, so I left quickly.

      Finally, I also went to Thermae for the first time. LOTS of girls there, and just as many customers, which means the place is packed every night. The setup makes for some uncomfortable situations, but the least I can say is that the girls were on average quite attractive (moreso than in the gogo bars, in fact).

      This time around I stayed clear from Patpong and I don’t have any regrets.


    • rockit says:

      Thanks for the report. It seems very accurate based on my observations. There are more African street workers then there ever were in the past or they are at least more visible now. Suzie Wong was always known more for its shows than the looks of its staff. Crazy House is known for a staff that bares it all and a lot of hands on activities right in the bar. The atmosphere is definitely rough though. I can’t argue with anything you’ve said though I do enjoy being able to actually walk down the north side of Sukhumvit now. Cheers.
