Club Sin is one of the latest additions to what has become a sort of “blow row” on Soi Bongkoch 8 in Pattaya. The place operates on the same gentlemen’s club model as the other five bars in the immediate vicinity. In local terms that means the bar has a locked door with ladies inside who provide oral services and more to a customer base largely made up of guys who spend a lot of time in the area.
Like the previously reviewed J Club this place is owned by the Nightwish Group. Starting with a bar on Soi 6 that grew in popularity in large part thanks to a slick internet marketing campaign featuring flattering pictures of attractive women on staff the group has come to own over a dozen bars in the city. All of their bars on Soi 6 seem to be doing quite well. The same cannot be said about the two bars they own on Soi Bongkoch 8 which would explain why they have both been up for sale for nearly a year.
Like the other nearby bars Club Sin keeps a locked door. The women inside usually watch the closed circuit camera screens so they see when customers approach. Because of that they normally open the door as soon as someone is in front of it. If they are not watching the camera customers have to ring the door bell to gain access.
Club Sin is nice and clean inside. Since the place went through a full renovation before being converted into a bar this only makes sense. It does not share the long skinny profile of other nearby bars like Club 4 or 007 however. It is more compact with the bar in the front and a row of more concealed booths at the back. The usual rooms are present upstairs too.
There was a time when the bars on Soi Bong Koch 8 were nearly overflowing with women. Most of them were quite attractive too. Things have certainly changed over the years. While there are still some attractive women around the staff numbers have really thinned out. At the same time the presence of twenty-year-olds has become increasingly rare while an abundance of women in their thirties spring up in its place.
Some of this may have to due to with a dearth of women. Both J Club and Club Sin have now hiring signs hanging outside in Thai. At the same time the manager of one of the bars in the immediate area told me of difficulties getting women on staff to actually show up for work. While the atmosphere used to seem generally fun on the strip things now look to be really slowing down. Law enforcement might even have something to do with it.
I have mentioned a past raid on Club 4 a few times on this site. Other bars in the area are also visited by the boys from time to time including very recently when authorities showed up at 007 to check on things.
While J Club mostly has women in their twenties on staff the gals at Club Sin seem to skew a lot older. Some are clearly in their thirties while at least one or two is probably approaching forty years of age or more.
On the other hand there seem to be a lot more women at Club Sin most of the time. While J Club might have three women on staff one day Club Sin will have closer to ten. Of course things can change from day to day so while this is true at the time of writing it may not remain so in the future.
The usual oral and full services are offered by the women at Club Sin either in the booths at the back in the rooms above. The price are the usual too at 800 Baht ($25 USD) for a blow or 1000 Baht ($32 USD) for the full thing. Of course the house also charges a few hundred Baht for use of the facilities along with whatever drink charges customers incur. Two stars.
