Ask Us:  Scams & Scammers...
Graffiti  -BKK's Midnite Vandals - #104

         There is 'nothing new under the sun,' they say, but there are likely a number of things you and I haven't yet seen.   Nevertheless, when it comes to the Night Entertainment Scene in Thailand, there is a number of long term residents and frequent return visitors who would, and do, disagree with that, - they are quite sure they have seen it all, and know it all.   .....We know better, and so on our latest "Pattaya Run" (July 11) when came across a couple of new "twists" to the Nightscene, we were mildly surprised (but not surprised that we were surprised....)   Let us explain:

Tac Girls

         Of the myriad niggly little problems facing virtually every bar owner/ manager, perhaps the most niggly is trying to keep their A-Team dancers.   The girls will buy themselves out early and go to the disco once they are money ahead.   Or they will head off with customers for two or more days, and never return.   Or they receive an offer for more money from another bar and disappear.   Girls will stray to any of a number of bars offering temp work, paid by the night, for good dancers - the bar owners hoping to get some in-depth talent on their busy nights.   (This is of course, a partial list.)   Not even the best of mamasans with recruiting resources reaching deep into the fabric of Isan can keep up for long.

         Enter the Tac Girls.   A bit of explanation, etymologically speaking, is in order at this point.   Tac is the coloquial bargirl pronunciation of 'Tract', which is yet again, short for 'Contract'.   So when we hear, "Tac Girls", or, "She dances Tac", we can do the translation in our heads.   

         Tac Girls are either A Go-Go girls or Coyote girls (as if changing out of a bikini into hotpants somehow makes any difference to a punter).   They will get paid Baht 10,000 for ten consecutive nights work - they have to show up each night.   They are required to get 50 lady drinks over that 10 day period, for which they will not get a commission.   (That's 5 drinks per night.)   Anything over 50 drinks, they get the normal Baht 50 per drink commission, however.   The Tac Girls are not subjected to all the extra "fines" or "cuts" from their pay for offences such as showing up late, or skipping their "floor", not wearing regulation high-boots, or not making their minimum number of ops, nauseum.   Tac Girls can usually be bought out like any other dancer, but they are dancing 'second tier', which is to say, their barfine is Baht 1,000 instead of the usual Baht 600 or 700 (prices vary slightly depending on the bar, of course).   Some bars differentiate between first and second tier dancers by the color of their numbers / name tags - other bars you have to ask.   Tac Girls, as you may have already correctly assumed, are a cut above.

         So how is this working out for the bar owners and the Tac Girls?   Great, say both parties.   Win-win.   The bar owners find that after they have a few Tac Girls working, the girls tell their friends, and the next thing they know, they have a first-string A Go-Go stage.   The Tac Girls themselves are making more money (when all-in) than before, and are free to take off after their 10 day contract is up.   They find the additional freedoms afforded by this "semi-freelance" lifestyle much to their liking, and most often return after a few days off for a follow-on contract.   The only downside, say the owners, is the extra bookwork - they find they have "paydays" for the Tac Girls coming every few days - but they say they don't really mind - especially when word gets around, and business starts picking up.

         Inevitably, however, there is an end in sight, at least theoretically, to this type of 'windfall' contracting, at least as far as the bar owners are concerned:   Once all the bars are doing it, the 'hot' dancers will be just as scarce as before.   But until then, may they all continue to 'make hay while the sun shines'....

*( Not to be confused with dancers 'contracted' to cycle between bars with same owner or group of owners.)

Closed Bars

         Closed bars, in the generic sense, have been around at least since Jim Lowe's original version of Green Door, a number one hit record, back in 1956.   However, the Closed Bars (or 'Close Bars', or occasionally, 'Dress Bars') we are speaking of today were more likely inspired by The Story of O, the underground, world-acclaimed 1954 erotic novel by Anne Desclos.

         The three Pattaya bars in operation today, the Telephone Bar, the Bar Four and the Carte Blanc (or Carte d'Blanc) are all owned, some say not coincidentally, by Frenchmen.   But don't look for the signs; there are none.   These bars are by invitation only, (or occasionally, if you have a white face....).   Regrets in advance to all - we are not at liberty to publish the locations of these Nitespots - for what will become 'obvious reasons'.

         Typically, entrance is gained by pressing the buzzer, and waiting until you are screened from within through a peephole or CCTV.   Once the door is opened, you are welcomed into a darkened bar, and offered a seat.   A hostess (normally not selected by you, but rather whoever is next in the queue) will come to sit with you.   She is wearing a dress.   Only a dress.   You may buy the lady a drink (normal price), and your drink is on the house.   (Yes, you do not pay for it....)   A bought drink for the lady will have her lower the top of her dress to the wasteline.   Should you enter into negotiation with your hostess for something more carnal, once the price is agreed, the dress comes off entirely.   By this time, your eyes are adjusting to the low light and you begin to notice others seated at the bar next to you, also with their nude hostesses.   The additional carnal services you had just negotiated will be applied while you sit at the bar - unless you prefer to do what you do standing up.   Or if you are stricken with gymnophobic hang-ups, there will be a room upstairs, or in the back for your prudish privacy.   Again, prices are within the going Nitescene range.

         This would not be everyone's perfect night out, of course, but if you have a voyeuristic streak in you, or an exhibitionist streak in you, or both, you might enjoy such a night out "behind the Green Door".

Bangkok Scams


Do you have a column or section or a link on scam alerts?

I narrowly escaped a card playing scam on one occasion.   The approach was,“Hey I have a sister who wants to go to school or living in your country.”

Taxi driver looking for fares said 50 Baht for 1 hour tour.   I declined.


Greetings, R.

      Midnight Hour does not carry scam warnings, but - as mentioned herein previously, the best advice is not to listen to ANY tout on the street - for whatever reason, regardless of their appearance, be they taxi or tuk-tuk drivers, or well dressed men in business suits offering to give directions.   Do not, ever, agree to go ANYWHERE with ANYONE.   Do your own 'sourcing' without their help.   If you must speak to them, give them a brief, "No," and be on your way - do not continue making eye contact with them.

      Caveat emptor - it's up to you to look after yourself.   You will not be able to read about, or guess what all the Bangkok scams are, so you need to be able to adopt a "philosophy of avoidance" of potential scams.   One of the best 'short-cuts' to avoiding scams is the tried-and-true, "Don't put your hand in your pocket."    (Meaning of course, don't ever touch your wallet, and that way, you will never take any money out of it.)

      You will also need to be equally wary of the touts, male or female, working outside their bars.   If you are checking out a bar or other Night Entertainment Venue, go in on your own volition, and do not let the door-men, or women pull you, or guide you.   Then have a walk around inside and see for yourself what kind of an establishment it is, before you sit down.   If you have any question at all, ask the manager or cashier or the mamasan if there is a cover charge or a charge for the "show", or if it is just the cost of drinks.   Don't be shy about this, you are not offending them; and they will immediately see that you are not a 'chump'.   If, after you sit down, you buy a drink for a hostess, ask the price first, and make sure the bill for her drink comes at the same time her drink does.   Then check the bill, and the bill for your drink, to confirm the prices.   Bring several 100 Baht notes, and notes of smaller denomination with you, and pay to the nearest amount (tip afterwards, if you want to) - avoid being scammed.   Do not pay a 350 Baht bar bill with a 1,000 Baht note, as you may not be given the proper change.   If you do not receive adequate answers to your questions, and if you feel uncomfortable for any reason, pay for anything you have ordered, and leave promptly.

      Meanwhile, start on the road to becoming informed - read up-to-date guide books, legitimate websites, and ask hotel "Information" about your quests and interests, and read the brochures at the counters.   Use recommended tour companies and travel agents.   Depend on outside info from only known friends and acquaintances.   Scam artists can spot the 'dummies' at a thousand yards, so don't act like one, don't act over-curious or 'lost'.   Don't ask questions of strangers on the street, don't give out personal information to someone you don't know.   State your destination to taxi drivers and ask if they are using their meter before you get in.   Confirm the cost of tuk-tuk journeys beforehand, and have near exact change - do not accept ridiculously low prices like 50 Baht all day (or whatever) as they are planning to take you, by hook or by crook, to tailor shops, jewelry "factories", nightclubs, etc, and get their 200 Baht commission at each stop.   If you want to give money to yet another poor expat (usually a Brit) who has lost his passport, be my guest, but remember to ask to see a copy of the report of loss he made at his embassy.....

      Bangkok is an absolutely fun town, and after a while, your "philosophy of avoidance" will become second nature, but until then, keep your eyes open - you will find you are spotting the scammers before they spot you.

    Let the August 2014 Follies  begin...
    BANKOK EYES' Expat Night Scene.

       PATPONG  I  
                Kiss reopened on schedule, so all welcome back.   There's good rockin' tonight.   (However, we're guessing that the huge, brand new, ugly ATM machine on their front step was not their idea..... )
      PATPONG  I  

                Likewise, the upstairs Club 66 has reopened with a flourish.   They are once again trying to make a go of the pre-bought drink and show.   We wish them luck, but don't most of us like to see what we are paying for first?   I'm just sayin'.....
      PATPONG  I  

                The Night Bar is no more, at least not by that name.   The "New Order" has insisted that they revert to the legal name, Queens Castle 2 (a new sign is on the way).   The "New Order" has also insisted that their "Pay-For-Show" performances be cleaned up, suitable for general audiences.   The ping-pong balls and other paraphernalia will have to be stowed, at least for the near future....

      PATPONG  I  

                The upstairs Super Pussy has also weathered the storms of civil disruption to be reborn again.   Note: they are also Pay-For-Show, so ask the details before sitting down.   Welcome them back to the sharkpool.
      PATPONG  I  

      PATPONG  II  
                A "for-the-archives" pic of the Patpong Cafe neon.   This is the namesake bar of the original Patpong Cafe of yore on Patpong 1.   May they persevere.
      PATPONG  2  

                The Top Light bar was only playing possum last month.   They have sprung back to life this month, and continue to march.

     NANA   PLAZA   
                 The Voodoo, as most of us knew, had been getting ready to die for the last few months.   Well, it finally happened.   Born in October of 1994, it occupied an area that had never been a bar, with the Crazy Lady on one side (now True Obsession), and the Star Pub & Restaurant (now Spellbound) on the other, it survived for almost 20 years.    - And was the "nerve center" of the so-called 'David Bars', overseeing that group of Nitespots in the NEP through their ascendency and gradual decline.   May they find greener pastures.   It's successor - by all appearances - will be dubbed the Hoodoo A Gogo, and will be carrying on in its footsteps, albeit with a few planned changes under the new lease.
    Door Art Of The Month

                 In keeping with the other recent bar name-changes, the Voodoo's successor bar will be renamed as closely as possible/ reasonable to the original.   The new sign reads, Hoodoo A Gogo, and has been given this month's nod for best Door Art even before it opened.   Definitely a slick presentation.   But the Hoodoo's opening day isn't far off, it should be opening right about..... NOW.   

      NANA  PLAZA    

                 We noted herein last month that the 3rd floor Cascade was changing their name to the Charades, however, we didn't have a pic of their temporary sign on hand at time of publication.   Below is said pic.   The permanent neon has not yet been nailed up, so this temporary sign is currently still in use.   No change in modus operandi - it's still a transgenderite bar.
      NANA  PLAZA    

                 The ex- Lone Star Saloon A-Go-Go on the 3rd floor closed in July 2013, and since that time the people at NEP have been advertising for a new lessee.   Well, it looks like they finally found one : (A New Bar) is now under construction.   Rumors of the name for the new bar are floating around....wait and see.   But, sticking our heads in, we noticed a back to front partition being installed, giving rise to the possibility of two separate Nitespots....again, wait and see.
      NANA  PLAZA    

     SOI  NANA  
                 Early in the evenings, passers-by will notice the lovely staff of the G Terminal out on Soi 4, encouraging customers to come in for a drink or three.   Easy on the eye.   But one reminisces - dressing in this manner in public would have been unheard-of behavior back in the day....   The G Terminal is located 2nd floor in the Rajah Hotel outbuilding.
      SOI   NANA   

                 Melodies UK Bar have heard a far-calling - and were locked-down to the gunwales.   Should they find the wherewithal to make a return, we shall duly note, however they have, for the foreseeable, been removed from the database..
      SOI   NANA   

                 A for-the-archives pic of Annies - one of the Soi's old timers.....   We're still not sure what the "Do Do" is all about, and we're not sure we want to know....   Let em rock, let em roll.

      SOI  KATOEY   
                 A 'for-the-archive' pic of the Connections.
    SOI  KATOEY  - (SILOM  SOI  4)

      SOI  22  
                 We'll bet you a dime to a donut that you have never even heard of the Friese-Greene Club.   (We assume everyone is as uninformed as we are.)   It is a private/ semi private micro-theater, seating, nominally, six persons.   For cinebuffs only.   On an historical note, William Friese-Green, born at the end of the 19th Century, was a talented inventor of early motion picture projectors and related items.   His son Claude Friese-Greene followed in his footsteps, a pioneer in cinematography in his own right.   It is unclear whether the Frieze-Green Club is named after father or son, or both.   Located in a small sub-soi on Soi 22.   May the fates continue to smile....

    SOI  22 - (Sukhumvit)

                 The Flower Club has been coming together for the last few months - and now they have a sign and a couple of comfortable beer-drinking spots.   Located in Soi Starlight.   Welcome them as they step into the firing line....
    SOI  22 - (Sukhumvit)

                 Contrary to popular belief, "Taffy" didn't disappear when Taffy's New Square One Pub closed at the time of Washington Square's demise.   He only retreated - to Taffys Faulty Towers in a small sub-soi right behind his old place.   "Keeping a low profile" remains the format....
    SOI  22 - (Sukhumvit)

                 Wild Orchid Massage has taken over the reins from the Bua Sawan Massage.   No change in format - semi-ambiguous.   May they continue to slip and slide.
    SOI  22 - (Sukhumvit)

                 The (Tiny Unnamed Bar Beer) at the top of Soi Starlight now sells som tam.   Wish them better luck a little further down the road a piece.
    - File photo        
    SOI  22 - (Sukhumvit)

                   The Shimai Snack & Darts has complimented their neon - looks to be about 100%, and looking good.   May they prosper at the feet of the nightgods.

                   Baron is closed - except for when it is open.   Just last night, we looked in, and the place was filled with everything under the sun except people - mostly construction items and junk.   I think this finally translates as , "Closed", don't you?   Time to strike it from the rolls.
    - File photo           

                   Popping back out of it's crypt, and hitting the ground running is the Lotus Massage.   Closed the last two months, it is "back", and doing well.   Located in the small sub-soi next to the Australian.

                    The Wax Late , undergoing renovations last month (while the curfew closed their late night activities down), has taken a turn for the worse.   The place is currently gutted and the signs have been removed.   We'll keep an eye open, and advise of it's successor.
    - File photo

                   The St Moritz Bangkok is closed again (gates locked, signs down) but there is still something going on upstairs....   A wait-and-see item, but it looks like the St Moritz is a goner....

      SOI  EDEN  
                Last month we noted that the Bangkok Beat was covering over their front "verandah".   This month, it has been completed, and just in time for the rains.   Looking good.
    SOI  EDEN -  Soi  7/1 Sukhumvit

                Last month we noted we would report on whether or not the Before After was back.   It is, and as busy as ever.

     20 YEARS AGO  :


    Bangkok Eyes goes back in time to see
    Who was new - And who was through
    in the Expat Night Entertainment world.
    How many of these old 'oases'
    do you remember ?

    Patpong I

        *  The upstairs Signal Bar opened up in the then-recently closed down Joy Bar.   Located on the Suriwong Road side of Mizu's.   No Nitespot currently exists at that location.

    Patpong 2

        *  The Bravo opened newly on the 2nd floor in the stairwell opposite Foodland.   It took over the reins of the Chin Juku.   There is currently no Nitespot at that location

        *  The Imagine opened newly on the 2nd floor, having taken over the reins of the Night Cat - located above the Topless Beer Bar.   There is currently no Nitespot at the old Imagine location.

    Soi Cowboy

        *  The Long Gun officially took over from the Lucky Star.   It ran under that name until authorities caught up with them, so it now currently operates under both names.

        *  The Bumble Bee moved into the Sunshine - Dee Ja digs.   It currently, once again, operates under the Sunshine - After Skool banner.

        *  The Klymaxx officially took the reins at the old Quiet Spot location - the Quiet Spot having already moved next door.

        *  The upstairs part of Eros, the "Bar A Go Go Theque" part, closed down.   The downstairs Eros continued to operate, although neither are now open.   That space now occupied by Lighthouse.

    Nana Plaza

        *  After renovating the old Asian Intrigue, the "Fantasia"opened its 2nd floor doors for the first time.   It recently closed, and is now home to the relocated Hot Lips.

    Soi Katoey (Silom Soi 4)

        *  The Chilli House closed its doors.   They were located down at the end of the soi on the left as you walk in.

    "Graffiti Barn" Down

    - Limited portion reproduced herein meets Copyright Fair Use criteria.     

          An unused barn on privately owned property just outside Grandview, Iowa, USA was destroyed by fire recently.

          But this wasn't just any barn.   This barn had been a well-known local landmark for many years.   Known as the Graffiti Barn, it had become a 'traditional' outlet for students from the Louisa-Muscatine, the Columbus Junction and outlying school districts to let off steam.   In this case, steam in the form of spray-paint.

          The Graffiti Barn, scarred and re-scarred over the years by vandals (to the extent it had multiple layers upon layers of graffiti) had both it's detractors and it's supporters.   However, the detractors, hating all graffiti, were outnumbered by the barn's 'advocates' who adopted it and supported it as a sort-of local cultural landmark.   But even the middle-of-the-roaders, those not having a dog in the fight, had over time, given the Graffiti Barn the space, the tacit acceptance one might allow a derelict uncle or a red-headed stepchild.   The owner, a Texas resident, has no plans to rebuild the barn, which was reduced to rubble in the fire.

          The Grandview Fire Department Chief Mitch Schweitzer noted that local officials and the state fire marshal’s office were investigating the fire as possible arson.
