November's Nightlife News
Bangkok's Bars - 20 Years Ago  
A Smile in the Land of Smiles.
Reader's Corner: The Exchange of Links
Graffiti - Bangkok Update #152

      In January of 2016 we covered the Rot Fai Night Market behind Esplanade on Rachadapisek Road, and found it to be a thriving 'Thai' oriented Night Entertainment Area.   Our survey and ensuing article, "Railway Bazaar" <link> bolstered our hopes that the 'sister' Railway Bazaar at Sri Nakarin would be equally interesting from a Night Entertainment perspective.

      Live music is not uncommon in Night Bazaar venues.

      So we put the survey of the Night Market at Sri Nakarin on our list of sites we planned to visit.   Alas, there was always some other project we needed to get to first.   But then, recently, we heard additional favorable feedback on the Sri Nakarin Night Market....   So.... it's almost 3 years later, and we are finally getting around to it....   

      Up front, we should mention that it is no picnic getting out to Seacon Square (the Night Market located just behind - see map).   For one thing it is about 17 kilometers from downtown Bangkok, and Sri Nakarin Road, bad at the best of times, is now excavating for a brand-new Skytrain line - right down the middle.   Nevertheless, the Night Bazaar can still be worth an evening's adventures.

      Yes, that Lek Carabao...

      Although we were anticipating a goodly number of Nitespots, we found that there were much fewer than at the Night Bazaar Rachada.   And, like the Rachada Bazaar, the style of Nitespots was almost exclusively for locals.   Forget lounge bars with hostesses, forget A Go-Go.   

      La Fondu is the most popular expat hang-out.

      Presumably to get around licensing regulations, most Nitespots call themselves 'Cafe'.   Also, presumably to get around construction regulations / permissions, many of the Venues have quietly put stairways up to the rooftops, where they have arranged comfortable open-air seating (providing the weather is good). And we should add - these 'Cafe's do have decent menus should you decide to eat while there.


      In all fairness, we can't claim this Night Bazaar Sri Nakarin is a stand-alone Night Entertainment Area - there are just too few Nitespots, and they are spread out over a very large area (the Night Bazaar is not small, by any means).   But it does have one thing going for it that other Night Markets do not have - they have vintage and antique items of every description on view and on sale.   Vintage automobiles can be found in more than one 'museum'.   There are everything from Hawaiian shirts to Huey helicopers (really).   If you are out for a night of bizarre bazaar-ing, you will need to put this on your bucket list while you are still in Bangkok.


      Below are additional photographs of a few of Night Bazaar Sri Nakarin's Nitespots.

      8080 Cafe is typical, with a discreet open-air 2nd floor.


      A spectacular vintage automobile museum.


      Zuza is another venue with great upstairs dining and drinking.

Let the November 2018 Follies  begin-

            As unlikely as it may seem, a new bar, the Pussycat, has opened softly on PP1.   We happened by on their opening night, so all the prep was not yet completed.   They envision A Go-Go dancing in the near future -a wait-and-see item.   Welcome them to Darwin's trials of attrition...

            The recently reopened Super Pussy has closed down again.   -Only to be replaced by the Pussy Magic that closed down a month ago just across the street.   These pay-for-show bars continue with their Wac-A-Mole musical chairs - they get closed down at one location, they pop up across the street....   They do nothing to enhance the Night Entertainment reputation of the Patpongs.

            The live music is 'back on' at the Twilo.   We wish them constancy.

            The De Talk 2 was a bit of an odd-ball hole-in-the-wall Venue from the start.   So when that 'final curtain', the cold steel roller-shutter, came down, no one was surprised (they just weren't big enough to do any business).   What is surprising is that it lasted just over 2 years.   The original De Talk on PP2 is still going strong.

            Now more than a rumor, more than a painted sign, we will be filling in the details on the Club Black in the near future.   In the meantime, the 3rd floor Black Pagoda continues to romp...

            The Tokyo Boy (file photo below) has either torn down its sign, or had it torn down, and the Tavern Three Saloon sign has been hastily tacked back up.   This recent upsurge of new single-shophouse gay-boy bars on the ground level under The Ramp seems to be having a hard time legitimizing the names of their bars.   Official, legal name changes too expensive, perhaps?   They, too, have been playing musical-chairs along that strip, and it doesn't look like the end is in sight.   The only thing that hasn't changed is they remain gay bars...

            The Unnamed Bar that was Tokyo Boy a couple months ago appears to be open, but currently has no signage.   It appears to be a katoey bar.   More on this next time 'round.

            Two months ago we noted that the Penny Black was closed for renovations.   They have now reopened (and have been open for almost a month - we just missed the reopening on our last-month's survey).   Looking good.   Welcome them back to the machine.

            The shock closure this month was that of the popular Bangkok Bunnies.   The premises were quickly reoccupied by Twister Bkk.   (The Twister Bkk is said by those on the ground to be related to the 2nd level Twister Bar - not an entirely illogical conclusion...)   Same sharkpool, different day...

            The 3rd level Charades is closed down and hammers and saws are a-flying.   Rumor from those denizens on premises is that when it reopens, it will no longer be a katoey bar - real ladies only.   We also hear a name-change is in the offing....   Definitely wait-and-see items....

            The ground-level Short Time has taken down its signage and is undergoing minor renovations.   They appear to be continuing to serve customers (?) ..   So it remains a toss-up as to whether, or not, we will see a brand-new bar this time next month.   We'll update next time 'round...

            The long-in-service Bangcockney Bar (actually on Soi 6 as it joins Soi Nana) has stuffed its last chit in the last cup and boarded up the premises.   We hope this is just a temporary condition - should there be any change, we'll pick it up on the rebound and get back atcha.


            Only shadows danced in the doorway of the tiny Sugarbowl Bar & Restaurant as we passed by the other evening.   It appears the interior is being renovated & removed.   They were very thoughtful, though - they put out a sign for their delivery person not to deliver any ice....(?)   Wishing them greener grass....

            Hugs Bar-Karaoke, like their many predecessors at that location, are starting to open and close on whatever whim takes them.   (This month they are closed again.)   A bad sign, historically speaking....

 SOI  22  
            It is refreshing to see a brand-new Nitespot open.   In this case, it is the Second Base, and it is located just across the main drag from the Queen's Park Plaza.   Welcome them to the bright lights, big city....
 SOI  22  

            What was the Pussapa Massage up until 2 months ago is now the Nice Massage 2 (the original Nice Massage is just next door).   May they continue to slip and slide.
 SOI  22  

            Last month we noted the impending opening of Healing In Thai Massage.   Well, it happened.   A very well appointed spa located just inside Subsoi Titanium on Soi 22.   Welcome them to the neon nights...
 SOI  22  

            The Vagabond bar beer started out as a street bar on Sukhumvit Road a couple of years ago.   More recently, one year, to be exact, they moved into more permanent digs at the back of Subsoi Havana Social, and nailed up some very professional neon.   Yesterday we stopped by to have a drink, and found they were in the wind.   I asked the lady in charge at the bar beer that replaced Vagabond, and she said, "Finish contract".   We hope the Vagabond crew took that neon sign and put it to good use...   (BTW, the new bar beer will be called 'Ice Bar' once they get the signage crafted and nailed up.)

 SOI  AMBASSADOR  (Sukhumvit Soi 11) 

            The Old German Beer House is gone, but not gone.   They are closed down for major renovations (see photo), however they have opened up either temporarily, or as a permanent branch on Soi 13.   The plan, as it stands today, is to relocate back in to the original digs once the renovations are complete.   May they persevere.
 SOI  AMBASSADOR  (Sukhumvit Soi 11) 

            The Happy Station 11 Bar Beer at the top of Soi Ambassador (in the motorcycle soi called Soi 11/2) has reopened.   In that they open and close so frequently, we will not be posting the same old file photo....
 SOI  AMBASSADOR  (Sukhumvit Soi 11) 

            The Simple Bar has closed down - we think - and has been replaced by Friendly Bar.   The problem is, two doors down one finds the Friendly Bar, same name, same sign.   Just across the footpath from the Simple Bar/Friendly Bar is the Simple Bar 1, right where it has long been...   Don't ask us, we only work here...
 QUEEN's  PARK  PLAZA  (Sukhumvit 22) 

            We would certainly be remiss if we didn't have at least something up for Halloween.   This ghostly apparition was the most colorful of the lot this year - thanks to the fun-loving gang at the 5 Star Bar.
 QUEEN's  PARK  PLAZA  (Sukhumvit 22) 

            A quick look down Soi Pan Pan reveals a Japanese enclave of (mostly) massage parlors.   A photo for the archives.

 SOI  DEAD  ARTISTS  (Sukhumvit 33) 

            The Smile Hair Cut has undergone a name-change - they became the Dalah Massage.   They gave up the charade - it was never about cutting hair - the massage parlor was upstairs and to the right.   Specialty massage remains the order of the day - and night.   Welcome them to the long uphill.

But is it ....ART ?

Check out Bangkok's dedicated page at "BKK" <link>


      For those of you who don't follow the international graffiti scene, the big story coming out of New York these last few years is that of the demolition of "5Pointz".   Seventeen years ago, a block-long derelict building was graciously given over - free of charge - by the owner, Jerry Wolkoff, to graffiti artists and those selling like-paraphernalia.   Artists were allowed to paint and operate within the confines of that real estate without limit, without censorship.

      It quickly became the East Coast's nexus for graffiti artists, and those who appreciated such - many making pilgrimages to the building to contribute artistically, or just to witness the bizarre artwork within.   Journalists wanting an easy Sunday-supplement filler story needed go no further than 5Pointz for all the 'color' and 'counterculture' they could stand.

      But five years ago, owner/ developer Wolkoff decided to redevelop his real estate, and proceeded to, first, paint out the graffiti, and second, demolish the building.   This meant the graffiti artists and spin-off stalls had to go.   -And the graffiti artists didn't take it lightly - they hired a lawyer and sued the owner for destruction of 'their' property.   A judge decided in the artists' favor, awarding them $6.7 million in damages.   Let this be a lesson to owner/ developer Wolkoff - no good deed, even one of 12 years' duration, goes unpunished.   The case is currently under appeal.

      Fast-forward to the present:   Recently, the owners of a new hotel, the CitizenM New York Bowery Hotel, in coordination with Marie Cecile Flageul, have commissioned graffiti artists to decorate the upper floor stairwells.   Flageul is curator of MOSA (the new Museum of Street Art), and she has invited a number of 5Pointz graffiti artists to preserve -in permanent installation- some of that lost artistic 'treasure'.

      The 'preservation' of the 5Pointz graffiti pieces is, of course, a state-of-mind, an illusion, promoted by the museum and the Press - as nothing has actually been preserved.   (Graffiti by definition, is, in part, an unfettered and transient art form, awaiting either removal by authorities, or over-painting by other graf artists.)   What the hotel and the museum have instead is commissioned reproductions by just 20 of those several hundreds of graf artists that, in their youth, threw-up the wildest parts their imagination on the walls of that long-demolished building.
