A Guide for the Best a Go-Go Bars and Clubs in Bangkok
An inside of the naughty nightlife of the red light districts
Bangkok isn’t only the mother of the red light districts but also the founder of the infamous go-go bars and clubs.
There are dozens of Go-Go bars around Bangkok, but in this article, I’m going to expose some of the friendliest clubs with the best Ago-go dancers in town.
- Soi Cowboy
- Nana Plaza
Over the years I have spent countless hours in the red light districts having a great time.
Nowadays I am less of a regular, however, when I do go I only visit what I think are the best AGo-Go bars in Bangkok.
If you are planning a trip to Pattaya as well, have a look at the best Pattaya AGo-Go bars guide.
Pattaya has better Agogo bars than Bangkok, mostly because the party atmosphere in Pattaya is wilder. This is only my opinion, better you check it out by yourself.
Let me explain my criteria in determining the best AGoGo clubs in Bangkok:
- Safety; This is Thailand and do shit happen time to time. I enjoy having a good time and I value high my safety from pimps and rough doormen.
- Youngest; I cap the age of AGoGo’s girls at 30 years old. More than that isn’t suitable considering girls working in Agogo have the highest rate in the nightlife industry.
- Hottest; Well, this is hard to determine. What is HOT for me, might not be HOT for you. I like girls who have an even body size, usually I prefer smaller than taller. One thing that put me off is any sign of “previous pregnancy” and skin marks.
- Music; The music should be contemporary and not too loud. I like to talk to the girls without shouting.
- Friendly; Whoever work in the premises MUST be friendly – bouncers – dancers – mamasang – service stuff. It’s a service industry.
- Value for money; The price should reflect the quality of the establishment and never be 30% higher than the average marketplace.
Talking about VALUE FOR MONEY, on average the prices are:
- your drink at THB 110
- Lady’s drink at THB 130
- Short Time Girl at THB 1500
- Long Time girl at THB 2000-3000
TIPS: You will most probably be encouraged to pay more than the above-mentioned prices. Do not inflate for others, resist. Higher prices have got nothing to do with better service.
Best Time: to visit an Ago-go Bar is between 8pm and 10 pm.
INFO: Between 8pm and 10pm is the best time for full selection of the ladies. After 11pm you will be able to secure for above mentioned prices. Before that (11pm) management and girls prefer to be on the premises racking up drinks etc. That is when they might hold out for a higher price. Same technique for most Go-Go’s anywhere.
This Bangkok AGo-Go bar guide is been divided into areas for your convenience; Soi Cowboy, Nana Plaza & Patpong
“We obviously know that we can’t please everyone but these bars are unanimously recognized as the best in town. Have fun!”
Best Bangkok AGo-Go Bars in Soi Cowboy
Soi Cowboy is one of the three infamous red light districts in Bangkok.
This street is only long 150 meters but is the home of around 40 Ago-go bars and hundreds of sexy Thai lady. The Soi was given its “funny” name after the cowboy hat-wearing African-American who opened the first bar here in the early 70s.
Location; It is between Sukhumvit Soi 21 (also called Soi Asoke) and Soi 23. The easiest way to access is by BTS Skytrain’s Asoke Station and the Bangkok Metro’s Sukhumvit Station.
1. Baccara is the largest Ago-go bar in the Soi split over two levels. This club is crowded with Korean and Japanese, thus expect the girls to focus their attention on the Asian men..
The two levels offer two type of entertainment; downstairs the Ago-go dancers are dressed in full bikinis and some forget the bra in the changing room, instead upstairs it is like to go to school (the girls wear short black skirt and white shirts.
Baccara doesn’t only have the hottest dancers, it also seems to have the most dancers on the Soi which is part of its huge popularity.
This go-go bar is a must visit during your naughty tour, it is a landmark in Soi Cowboy.
INFO: Downstairs smoking isn’t allowed, this make it more comfortable and enjoyable if you are not a smoker.
2. Shark is just next to Baccara and it is huge too with two levels of sexiness. Renew to have a great collection of cuties that will make your eyes pop, you will find your favorite girl for the night, guaranteed!
The interiors of the bar is almost identical to Baccara, with two central dancing stages surrounded by comfortable couches over two floors. I have found the upstairs is the best place to be, not so crowded with customers so the girls can be all yours. Yummy!
3. Crazy House is totally a different club in the Soi where you can get the best view for your bucks. The girls downstairs mostly dance naked, this is how far this business goes to make the customer happy.
The girls are above average and they love to show off their sexy asses, boobs and p….
No customers will leave unsatisfied from the 3D experience offered in Crazy House. There is an upper floor with girls covered in oil and wax, excellent for fetish, I suppose.
4. Tilac worth a mention because it is been seen in the Hollywood movie “Hangover Part 2″.
If you can recall, in the movie scene Doug accidentally shoot in club’s ceiling. Tilac interior is the most expensive in the Soi that give a feeling to be in an aquarium, being blu with lot of glasses.
The girls are young and cute, dancing on top the tables around the clubs.
Best Bangkok AGo-Go Bars in Patpong
Patpong is where the “AGo-Go” culture all started decades ago, however, nowadays it has lost its shine.
It’s a mixture of Go-Go bars, massage parlors and a marketplace for cheap souvenirs.
You see families walking around shopping souvenir with their kids, while the father gets a boner. It’s so unreal.
You don’t like women and you prefer to meet some handsome Thai boys, Patpong has several gay hotspots ranging from the rawness of Soi Twilight’s gay go-go bars to chic style gay bars of Silom Soi 4.
ATTENTION: Patpong is mostly visited by tourists, thus be carefully the common cheats going around this are as inflated drink prices and souvenirs.
1. Black Pagoda is the new addition to this area and I personally think it is the number one because of the newly concept.
It isn’t a classic ago-go bar, but a bland with a gentleman’s club and underground nightclub where you can have party, girls and booze.
It is a “different” club experience with great music and if you find the girl of your dream, the rooms are in the building.
2. BadaBing is one of the biggest Go-Go bars in Patpong that offers two levels of fun. Downstairs where there are around 30 sexy girls dancing on the center stage and the upstairs most suitable for large groups or parties has the room is private. The atmosphere is modern and the girls make it fun.
3. Blue Electric has a long history in Patpong area and this is a good sign for a successful Ago-go club.
They have got a good mix of girls for any taste, and if you are a naughty guy, here you will find what you are looking for (most girls are naked). The club atmosphere is lay back (they aren’t pushy on lady drinks) so you can play with the girls without interference from the service stuff.
The best part is “out call service” to any hotel in Bangkok for 4000 Bht. This service is great, you don’t need to go there if you want to see a girl again.
Best Bangkok A Go-Go Bars in Nana Plaza
As Bangkok’s biggest red light district in terms of pay for play options, the areas surrounding Nana Entertainment Plaza (NEP) is hard to compete.
The center of Nana Entertainment is a three floors building packed with go-go bars and thousand of girls.
It is located on Sukhumvit Road Soi 4 across from the Nana Hotel, basically at the center of Bangkok nightlife.
1. Angel Witch is known to have the best live shows in Nana Plaza, and we have already mentioned it in the best Pattaya a Go-Go Bars Guide in Pattaya. The show is a form of sexual art that is worth to watch, only last 15 minutes every hour.
In Angel Witch I get a feeling of fetish probability because the stage girls wear leather costumes and whips for the shows. However, there are such a variety of shows besides the fetish one that features sexy ladies dresses in all sorts of fashion.
Apart from the shows, the professional Ago-go dancers lineup is excellent; mostly tall and busty, not the usual petite Asian standard.
2. PlaySkool GoGo Bar is the second bar on the ground floor always packed with customer thanks to the strategic position.
The reason for visiting this club is simple; the girls are super cute, and they love to dance topless. Not enough?
Now the real deal, the girls in Playskool are hornier than in the most go-go bar in Nana Plaza.
Call them to your table and you will be impressed by their welcome approach with reciprocal kissing and even a massage under your trousers.
3. Billboard AGo-Go is a great club where a lot is happening inside.
You can sit watching the girls on the stage or accommodate yourself by the bath top, where the girls are bathing.
I found the girls in the shower to be much naughtier than regular dancers. Don’t worry, you aren’t going to get wet.
The music is well balanced and not too loud, this is a plus if you want to have a conversation with the girls.
