January's Nightlife News
Bangkok's Bars - 20 Years Ago  
A Smile in the Land of Smiles.
Reader's Corner: A Moonshine Genesis
Graffiti - Bangkok Update #154

      This month we survey Soi 71 (or more correctly Pridi Phanomyong Road).   But as Soi 71 is about 3.5 kilometers in length, we will be focusing specifically on the Southern junction with Sukhumvit Road where there is a growing Expat Entertainment Scene.   

      Cheers is the largest and perhaps the most popular Venue for food and drinks in W District.

      For the last several years we have been hearing more and more about Soi 71 as an incipient Night Entertainment Area.   Three years ago we went down for a look-around, and we didn't see much more than a couple of Thai shophouse 'karaoke's strung with Christmas lights.   But we did see what is now one of the entrances to W District, so we stuck our head in and clicked a couple of pics of the graffiti.   But we then wrote it off as not being viable as a Night Entertainment Area.   (Our mistake - we should always remember to record these small, seemingly insignificant areas while we are on site - as one never knows what they may morph into at some future time.)

      But the stories from "Phra Khanong" kept coming; sometimes as "Soi 71", other times as Soi Pridi Phanomyong 2 or 3.   Sometimes there were reports on a "W District", and other times as just Soi 1, or 2, off of Soi 71.   So this time out, we decided to go down there for however many nights it was going to take, and find, and put our hands (and cameras) on all this Night Entertainment that was reportedly going on behind our backs...


      The impression we took with us on our initial visit was that this hidden-away Nitespot Area was predominantly for farang English Teachers, or to be more specific, English English teachers.   -Which is warranted to a degree, but not entirely accurate.   

     The Cielo Sky Bar & Restaurant (of which we can see the downstairs reception area) is a class-act upstairs and down.   Our choice for the most aesthetically pleasing and enticing bit of "Door Art" for the month of January.


      W District is a more cosmopolitan mix - to include Thais.   (Which makes sense, because, while there are a few Nitespots within, most of the venues therein are a variety of local and international eateries of varying sizes.   Soi 2 (Pridi Phanomyong 2) is predominantly British-style pubs.   Soi 3 is predominantly the domain of the Japanese, with eateries and Nippon oriented Nitespots.   And then, the ever present 'Massage Parlors scattered throughout the Soi 71 area - see the map, above.

      Kosmo Bar is one of the more popular bar / restaurants in W District
- accessible from either direction, once in W District.

      But the big question remains: Is it worth spending an evening at Soi 71 and its attendant Nighteries?   Yes, a good night out with friends is certainly in order, albeit one won't find the wild ride to be found on Soi Cowboy or Nana Plaza.   Nevertheless, all the essentials are there for a 'time well-spent'...

      Rovers is one of the more popular British Pub Nitespots.
Worth the walk down the Soi to get to it.
 SOI  2  Pridi  Phanomyong  

      A final note on W District: most think of the W District as the open Nitespot area between Soi 1 and 3, however W District is a large in-progress high-rise real estate development project (see pink area on the map).   The large open area at the back, currently being utilized as a Night Entertainment Area is just the square footage that is not yet under construction.   Or to say the same thing another way, 'W District Entertainment Area' is 'opportunistic', and will exist only as long as the bulldozers and cranes don't arrive...

      Below are additional photographs of a few of Soi 71's Nitespots.

 SOI  3   -  Pridi  Phanomyong 

      Looks can be deceiving. The sign appears to read 'Lawson' in English,
however it is actually Thai script reading 'Noparat'.   Stays open 'late'.

   READER :   Hey Mate,
Just finished reading December's edition which was great as always.   However, the picture of Soi 7/1 really caught my eye given how much that little soi of depravity has changed over the last 5 years.

Soi 7/1 has been a personal favorite of mine in the past and certainly around the 2012 period was humming with nighttime action.   I was a great fan of Bangkok Beat Disco and had even been known to spend a little medicinal time with the qualified medical professionals of Dr BJ's Nuru .

However, it seems that the Soi changed fairly rapidly away from those type of venues to a more mainstream existence, with even quite a few accommodation providers, rapidly over the past few years.

Given that the New Wave pool bar failed quickly (as if no one could see that coming!) I noted on my last trip a bit more naughty business creeping in again.   So I would be interested to hear if you see a little resurgence potentially happening in that Soi in the coming years?   Or whether it will continue to feel the pressure as most of the nightlife presently does?

Ultimately, with rising prices (including real estate) I suspect the nightlife seen could be in for a hammering over the next few years...albeit it at least on lower Sukhumvit .

Cheers Mate

    MIDNITE HOUR:   Thanks for reading and writing in.   Yes, Soi 7/1 (Soi Eden) has changed, and then changed again, since it was just a single-venue soi years ago (the Eden Massage).

Originally (for a number of years) it was the Absolute 7 Bar, however in March 2009 Bangkok Beat took over - and it became an instant favorite for many - always busy on the weekends.   It attracted its fair share of freelancers , and was known  -from time to time-  to keep late hours.   I don't understand why it went out of business, unless the owners just decided to do something different.

The BJ group of venues changed names (for whatever reason) to Chrome Bar and Wood Bar in June / July 2016 , however the services remain pretty much the same.   The owners remained the same.

Barring a major hotel-condo-office building project or two, I don't foresee any near-future changes in the modus operandi of Soi Eden.

   READER :   Hello, I notice in your current websites, since you have been covering Soi 22 that you mention soi, or sub-soi Hana and Lemongrass.   I notice that deeper into the soi there are some unnamed side sois that do in fact have massage parlors, but I am wondering if you mean those sois, or if there are other sois and massage parlors that I am missing out on.

    MIDNITE HOUR:    Greetings,
We are talking about the same massage-laden sois.   In the case of subsoi Lemongrass , I originally used that name because the only ' landmark ' for that subsoi - when walking down Soi 22 - was the Lemongrass Spa (which subsequently moved away).   In the case of subsoi Hana , I 'adopted' that name because of a prominent "Hana Massage " sign located at the top of that small side soi.   These are convenience names so we can keep our records straight internally, and are if course not the actual names of these subsois.   Should the BMA ever assign official names and signage, we will comply soonest.   The best guide would be one of our maps on our website.
   READER :   Hello,
Nice job this month.   Question.   You showed a photo of Moonshine in Queen's Park Plaza .   Was this not originally one of Ned's (Last name redacted) many Moonshine places?   It looks familiar as I'm almost sure that I attended the opening of the Moonshine during one of my trips to Thailand?   I was staying at Bourbon Street at the time.

At one time Ned & Ott (mostly Ott ) had Moonshine ( Soi Cowboy), Moonshine (Walking Street) and Moonshine Beach House (Jomtien).   I first met Ned at Moonshine on Soi Cowboy.   I was also at the opening of the Moonshine on Walking Street.   The next night I was there for cocktails.....

    MIDNITE HOUR:    Greetings, H,
Yes we are talking about the same Ned, who, we understand, currently still resides in the Pattaya area (?).   Your letter provides an interesting and insightful look into the 'historical' background of the various 'Moonshine ' venues.   The Moonshine on Soi Cowboy is also still going strong.    Thanks for writing in.

Let the January 2019 Follies  begin-

            What was the Pussycat bar two months ago (and closed last month) has just been reincarnated as the Chill Out Boy.   May they persevere...

            The Hanuman Thai Massage has recently rolled out the red carpet for one and all.   Wish them luck on that slippery slope.   They are located at the Suriwong Road end of PP1.

            The bar that was Tokyo Boy a few months back, and had gone nameless the last two months, has now nailed up some signage : Sixty Nine Bar.   The modus operandi unchanged : katoey bar.   

            The Patpong Cafe was darker than a poisoned well when we passed by on New Year's Eve, with nary a sign out saying when they might return.   We fear the worst.   Should we hear of any reversal of misfortune, we shall shout it out next issue.

            The Tilac, as per usual, goes out of their way each Christmas Holiday Season to put up a colorful Christmas tree.   

            A few longtime residents and returnees might recall the Tomato Head Tavern restaurant on the corner of Sukhumvit Soi 23 and Soi Cowboy.   Back in June of 1993 it changed it's name to The Old Dutch Cafe Bar.   Over the years there have been some variations on that name, but always inclusive of 'Old Dutch'.   It was originally owned by a Dutchman, and eventually sold to the "P Group" of bars prevalent on Soi Cowboy for many years.   When it changed ownership, it retained all the old signs, like : "We are nice if you are", and other like-signage reminding the customer that they were not a fast-food restaurant, and good food takes time to prepare.... you get the picture.    A favorite of many, The Old Dutch Corner (its latest name) recently sold out and is now renovating - reportedly to become a Nitespot related to the Crazy House (a wait-and-see item).   Greener grass, gentlemen...


            Almost three months in renovating, the old Charades katoey bar has reopened as Geisha. And, as was being heard on the street, it has changed over to an 'only real ladies' bar.... at least for the foreseeable future.   Walking in, it was like deja-deja vu... I thought I was tripping back in time to the old G-Spot.   And yes, A Go-Go is the operative descriptor.   Very much in keeping with the other A Go-Go's at the Plaza, tops-off much of the time, 'lady-dinks' starting at Baht 170.   What's not to like?   Welcome them to the bright lights, big city...

            The Red Moscow Club & Lounge, which opened in September, has followed its predecessor, the Tamasha Exclusive Indian Club & Lounge into the trash-heap of history.   And for similar reasons... the pretense of exclusivity -with nothing out of the ordinary to show for it- is just not going to cut it.   Also, (hint), the Rajah Hotel's high rental rates are not going to encourage much new Nitespot business - unless and until - it becomes a 'thriving Entertainment Center', which, currently, it is not...


            The Balcony had interesting and colorful Christmas decorations this last Holiday Season.   Business as usual...

 SOI  22  
            Tina, (Soi 22's only A Go-Go) appears to be closed.   We don't know if this is due to an extended, self-proclaimed New Year's holiday, or if they have gone the way of the Megalapteryx didinus.   Only time will tell... at which time, we will also tell...
 SOI  22  

            The AW Massage has taken over lock, stock and Tiger Balm, from the JW Massage.   Modus operandi unchanged.   Wish them well as they continue to slip and slide...
 SOI  22  

            The Kick Club has opened on the ground floor of the Holiday Inn in what used to be the Talli.   Interesting, if somewhat fuzzy, electronic signage.   Welcome them to the big city lights...
 SOI  22  

            The Cali-Mex Bar and Grill has opened on the ground floor of the Holiday Inn - in the old Honey Pub digs.   They appear to be more Bar than Grill...   This appears to be a new B&G chain in Bangkok - another new outlet on Soi Ambassador (see below).   Welcome them to the neon jungle.
 SOI  22  

            The Thai Candy Massage in Soi Lemongrass has taken over the reins from the Be Rich Massage (which closed a couple of months back).   Modus operandi : 'ambiguous'.   Welcome them to the dark side...
 SOI  22  

            Cali-Mex Bar & Grill chain's latest-and-greatest has just opened on Soi Ambassador.   Again, it appears to be more bar than grill.   We haven't tried out their menu yet, but we shall... soon.   Welcome them to the follies...

 SOI  AMBASSADOR  (Sukhumvit Soi 11) 

            It looks like Soi 11/2's Lucky Shot has followed the Titanic into irretrievable depths.   Signage gone, the works...   May they find things more to their liking a little further on down the road a piece...
 SOI  AMBASSADOR  (Sukhumvit Soi 11) 

            Last month Hillary 3 was deep in the throes of renovations - this month it's another story.   It has reopened, and still looking good.   But that's not all.... have a look at what else has 'opened' within...   May they continue to shine...
 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) 

            Gone, but not gone, the Simple Bar bar beer has gone back to being the Simple Bar after a couple months of being the extension of the "Friendly Bar".   So... what was going on?   (Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men?)   We suspect at least one more name-switch in this latest exercise of 'musical chairs'...
 QUEEN's  PARK  PLAZA  (Sukhumvit 22) 

            Closing a little over a month ago, The Firm was in deafening darkness when we passed by on last month's survey.    So, this New Year's Eve we were mildly surprised to see something going on in the now-neonless digs.   A new Nitespot?   Someone throwing a New Year's party?   We suspect we will know more on this by this time next month...
 SOI  DEAD   ARTISTS (Sukhumvit 33) 

            Joy, located on the 2nd level of S 33 Compact Hotel is yet again reopened.

 SOI  DEAD  ARTISTS  (Sukhumvit 33) 

            'Exclusive Entertainment Club' Pent 33, open only since January 2017, appears to be in an Alcatraz-like lockdown.   Only darkness shone out from within.   No signage posted regarding 'Holidays off', or other similar note.   Most of the neon removed.   Doesn't look promising.   We'll keep an ear to the ground, and report back should there be a sudden re-emergence from the crypt.

 SOI  DEAD  ARTISTS (Sukhumvit 33) 

            Poised to open is the new Dream Heaven Massage.   It's right across the street from the original Dream Heaven Massage, which is still up and pumping.   Are we witnessing a relocation or will there be yet another massage parlor on Soi Dead Artists ?

 SOI  DEAD   ARTISTS  (Sukhumvit 33) 

            Tenderloins / Bistro 33 has got some new neon nailed up.   BTW, they still serve their lunch specials, as of old... but now with plenty of parking.   Keep on keeping on...

 SOI  DEAD  ARTISTS  (Sukhumvit 33)  

            As the recent smoke-signals had it, The Pickled Liver British Pub's days were numbered.   They have passed into the night, as did the several of their predecessors (most of which were also decent Nitespots).   The real -and perhaps unsolvable- problem is location, location, location....
 SOI  EDEN  (Sukhumvit 7 / 1) 

            The X-Boys scrolling electronic sign sometimes actually works properly.   Just sayin'...

But is it ....ART ?

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


      Each year for the last several years, Bulgaria's spray-can gremlins have been setting upon the former Soviet Union's ubiquitous monuments with a technicolor vengeance.

      And each year the current Russian Federation apparatchiks formally protest to the Bulgarian government over the affront.   They insist Bulgarian authorities " ...clean up the monuments in Sofia's Lozenets District, identify and punish those responsible, and take exhaustive measures to prevent similar attacks in the future".

      And each year, Bulgaria's irreverent street 'artists' congregate in the pale moonlight at those selfsame Soviet monuments with a brand-new cause celebre and fresh spraycans.   One such midnite desecration was of Russia's Fallen Soldier, and another was an "apology-in-pink", artistically speaking, for Bulgaria's support of Soviet troops who suppressed Czechoslovakia's Prague Spring revolt.   Another such late-night vandalism was in protest over the pussy riot verdict.   Yet another spraypainting frenzy was a tongue-in-cheek 'celebration' of American Commercialism.   Yet another paint-up was in solidarity with the Ukraine, in, of course, Ukraine's national colors.

      To date none of the culprits has been identified, let alone punished.   Bulgarian authorities have, however, eventually gotten around to removing the offending kaliedoscope of colors adorning the Russian monuments.   The beat goes on...
