Spanky’s is one of the many go go bars located inside of Nana Entertainment Plaza (NEP) in Bangkok. With multiple floors jammed packed with agogos it takes a lot for a bar in the NEP to stand out. Spanky’s does exactly that with its unique theme.
Of course a theme can only go so far unless a place goes all the way with it. So maid cafes have become a sort of genre of their own in Japan. But places like the aircraft themed DC-10 bar in Bangkok never really made major waves. To its credit Spanky’s uses the theme more to pack seats than anything else. Once the people are inside they can enjoy what is actually a pretty good agogo.
Spanky’s in Nana Plaza
Regular readers may remember that I mentioned Spanky’s in both my 2018 and 2019 overviews of the go go bar scene in Bangkok. It would rather absurd to do a roundup of the city’s agogos without talking about the place. It’s that popular and notable. Unfortunately the pandemic made it virtually impossible to do the Bangkok go go bar summary I had planned for 2020. But at least this situation has given me the opportunity to examine some of these places in like Spanky’s more depth.
As the name would suggest Spanky’s is all about smacking backsides. Well it’s not all about that. But that is definitely the overall theme. If the logo of a red hand print on a derriere didn’t give it away the women standing out front hitting people who walk past across their posteriors would. Since they do the hitting with harmless yet noisy foam rods this more about bringing attention to the place than anything else. But you can tell that the ladies do have fun whacking butts even when it doesn’t put them in the seats.
Inside Spanky’s is a regular go go bar with a sort of stagered seating arrangement. There is the typical stage with metal poles and most of the seats are oriented around that. Though there is also a stand up shower with glass walls in the back where women wash off in the nude. It reminds me of a similar setup in New York’s Sin City years ago. Only the dancers at Spanky’s are more attractive and fully nude.
Staff, service and summary
Since the shower show at Spanky’s is so sensual and alluring that only makes the absence of good seating more noticeable. There are just a few chairs that give good views of the shower. Yet those same chairs give almost no clear view of the stage. That is regrettable.
Still the presence of so many attractive women more than makes up for the shitty seating arrangement. Every Thai agogo more or less has a good amount of women working these days. But the ratio of good looking ladies to the others isn’t as high as it used to be. It’s not for nothing that the old Electric Blue used to advertise “lots of sexy ladies, and a few ugly ones too” before it went the way of the dodo bird.
At Spanky’s there are plenty of fit and good looking Thai babes in their twenties to ogle. They’re all quite friendly and fun. So in between hitting people over the head with their foam paddles they are more than happy to sit down over lady drinks. There is also a barfine of course. Though the vibe in the place is more towards fun in the bar. Gals do go out of the place with guys who are willing to shell out a couple thousand Baht. But they much prefer hitting one of the short time rooms right in Nana Plaza than doing an overnight somewhere else in the city.
Spanky’s stands out from the rest of the go go bars for a couple of reasons. The most obvious is the spanking theme. But as stated above that only goes so far. It is the fun vibe and the friendliness of the abundant attractive women inside the bar that makes up the real staying power and popularity of this place. They obviously know how to run a go go bar. It’s not the best in the world by any means. But it can be a lot of fun. With that in mind I give Spanky’s three stars.
