Graffiti  -BKK's Midnite Vandals - #125

      Hunter Thompson said it; "History is hard to know, because of all the hired bullshit...".   Well, true, but there are other reasons history is hard to know - a primary one is the tendency to give history the 'broad-brush', leaving out the details.   Or, to say the same thing another way, to simplify until simplistic.   Another is the tendency to forget.   This makes a reconstruction of even the most straightforward of chronologies difficult in the extreme.   This month we follow the backtrail of one of Bangkok's true survivors.

The Check Inn 99's highly entertaining Filipino band has made the transition
to the new digs on Sukhumvit Soi 24.
 SOI  24  Sukhumvit  Rd  

      'In the beginning', as they say, there was the The Copacabana, construction starting in 1957, and providing full services by 1958.   It was located on Sukhumvit Road between the 'Nai Lert' sois 5 and 7.   During the late '50's and early '60's - a number of years before the Bangkok nightlife scene became 'an item' internationally- it still had a substantial following with the Peace Corps volunteers, USAID employees and the US military 'advisers'; from Radio Research companies and other elements.   The Copa - a Nitespot ahead of it's time - had a good run, but died a quiet death, leaving behind a fully functional Entertainment Venue - which laid fallow, in darkness and spider webs, for an extended time - untouched, awaiting new tenants.    *.

 SOIs  5  &  7  Sukhumvit  Rd  

      Some years later in the mid '60's, in an entirely unrelated event, an 'off broadway' (off Patpong) bar opened on Silom Road called Club 99.   It remained a popular expat bar through the buildup of the Patpongs, surviving at that location until 1992.

An anniversary bell presented to the Check Inn Garden
just one year before joining with Club 99.
 SOI   24  Sukhumvit  Rd  

      Fast forward: in the mid '80's, a group of Danes pooled their resources and leased the Sukhumvit Rd premises which once housed the Copa, and began sweeping, mopping, dusting and painting, and not much else.   They called their new Venue the Knold og Tot.   Not the most attractive of names to native English speakers, but a very well known pop-culture name with the Danes.   (Translated back into the English language, it would read The Katzenjammer Kids, a comics series that has lasted more than a century to the present day).

Saved from the scrap heap in the nick of time
(during the move from Sukhumvit Road to Soi 24) was one of the first Check Inn Garden signs.
 SOIs  5  &  7  Sukhumvit  Rd  

      Nevertheless, the Knold og Tot just wasn't drawing enough custom -just not enough Danes in Bangkok at the time- so the name was changed in 1986 to Check Inn Garden.   And the name-change was a success - the Nitespot was finally spinning a modest profit.

Admiral's Pub & Restaurant and Check Inn 99 have worked out
a win-win combo - all parties benefiting from the Sukhumvit Soi 24 'merger'
 SOIs  11  &  13  Sukhumvit  Rd  

      Fast forward again to the early 1990's, at the other side of town, the Club 99 saw their fortunes dwindling, and sought greener pastures.   They found those greener pastures on Sukhumvit Road at the Check Inn Garden, which, at that time, was amenable to a merger.   The merger was consummated in 1992, and the amalgamated name Check Inn 99 was adopted.   (Although both names persisted in signage for some time after that.)

The Club 99 started it all - a Silom Road bar, not far from Patpong.
   When business dropped off in 1992, they joined forces with
the Check Inn Garden on Sukhumvit near Soi 5.

      The Check Inn 99 in it's early years continued to do a modest business, with the group of partners (Check Inn Garden and Club 99), all the while, working what was a kind of 'ponzi scheme' - where if one of the partners left the venture, the others would inherit his shares.   New partners, when joining, would pay a new 'share', which would be divided up among the other shareholders.   As it happened, the last shareholder in this scheme was an energetic Australian by the name of Chris C-Smith, so when the Check Inn 99 group decided to call it quits and close down, he took over the lease and began bringing the Check Inn 99 into the 21st Century.

      Alas, 'the only constant is change'.   Earlier this year, as the current lease agreement was running short at the Sukhumvit Soi 5 - 7 location, grand plans were made between owner-lessor and Check Inn 99 for expansions and diversifications.   When the final days drew near, it was obvious that the owner-lessor was expanding his plans at a greater, and more grandiose pace than had been originally agreed.   Mr Smith of the Check Inn 99 saw the handwriting on the wall and immediately began combing the Sukhumvit area for a new home.

      When the Check Inn 99 closed on July 2 (or the wee hours of July 3...) of this year, a new home had already been found on Soi 24.   And for consistency's sake, it would be another (soft) merger - this time with the Admiral's Pub & Restaurant.   And for consistency's sake, yet again, both signages may be found on entering.   It will be interesting to see what the final signage will read - but you can take it to your bookie that it will have a "99" therein....

      *  Note:    This synthesis, this piecing-together of names and dates and places and photos would have been an impossibility without the direct input and coordination efforts of Chris C-Smith, for which we are infinitely grateful.    When necessary, dates used above are 'not before' and/ or 'not after' dates from various old publications, and from a consensus of long-time Bangkok residents (and the setting aside of any conflicting dates, or dates which could not be confirmed).

      Footnote:   Although the 'lineage' of the "99" is from Silom Road to Sukhumvit Road to Soi 24 Sukhumvit, and although The Copacabana, having no direct successor, was not a part of that saga, there is currently a Copacabana namesake just off Rachadapisek Road, just behind the Poseidon Massage.   It is a sprawling Mega-Entertainment Complex (200 meter frontage) owned by none other than Mr Hot Tub himself, the ex-Godfather of Steam-&-Cream, the ex-politician, the recently convicted Chuwit.   Needless to say, there is no relationship between the earlier, historic Copacabana and current one.
Khun Chuwit enjoys the Jaccuzi at his 'Copacabana' namesake on Rachadapisek.



August's Thai Smile brings dentistry to the fore.   Pleasantly....

Old NEP Photos

      I am forwarding a picture from the old Nana Plaza which I have seen on several websites and blogs over the years.   I may have even seen it on your MIDNITE HOUR before?   Is there any way you can determine when this photo was taken?   Any assistance you can provide is much appreciated.

Greetings, K.L.,

      Likewise, we have seen, and received this photo, along with others, more than once.   On one occasion, the sender attributed a date of '1986'.   And while we believe this to be possible based on some of the bar names showing in the photo, the hard evidence we have can only confirm a 'not-later-than' date.

Ferang Connection closed at that location March 2001.

Star Pub & Restaurant (sign partially hidden) closed August 1995.

The Crazy Lady replaced the Abu Khalil Lebanese Restaurant July 1993.

The other bars, DC-10, the Sexy Night are both still going strong, and were open very early in Nana Plaza's history.

      We have no additional hard evidence for anything earlier, however, the photo could not have been taken after July 1993, the date noted above.   Anything else would be speculation.   We hope this is of some assistance.

Let the August 2016 Follies  begin...
BANGKOK EYES' Expat Night Scene.
            In the latest incidence of extra-judicial street justice meted out by the Men In Too-Tight Uniforms, the Kiss A Go-Go has been gifted a 2-month holiday for employing age-deficient dancers.   Keeping in mind a couple of years ago, they exacted a similar 2-month closure of the Pussy Collection, which stretched into more than two years before they were finally forced to close.   These are not good vibrations....

            The Bada Bing has lost their battle with the Sign Gestapos after all.   Commencing this last month, they have started posting the registered name Twilo on their Patpong 2 half of the facilities (and stopped putting up temporary Bada Bing banners).   The front Patpong 1 portion remains Twilo Live.

            The 9501 Studio Bar was closed down like Alcatraz when we passed by the other evening.   We did get a promise it would be reopening this month, however.   We'll slide by later and check it out....

            A for-the-archives pic of the venerable Toy, one of Soi Cowboys older single-shophousers.

            A 'Focus On Straps'...   A few pics 'For-The-Archives' of the bar most closely resembling the Nana Plaza bars of old.....

 SOI  22  (Sukhumvit)  

Some bars..



            We had heard the rumor that the G-Terminal had closed, and by golly, when we went upstairs to check it out, we were met by a big silver padlock on the door.   I guess that means the rumor has been substantiated...   They were located in the Rajah Hotel compound in the front out-building.

            Strikers Sports Pub has gone the way of the Dunkleosteus.   And that is putting it mildly.   Nothing is left except scorched earth, as the Rajah Hotel prepares the digs for some new permanent construction.   Strikers first opened at the front of the Nana Plaza on March 2009, moving later to the Rajah Hotel compound in July 2012.   May they find things more to their liking a little further on down the road a piece.

            Eat. Drink. Man. Women. (EDMW) may take the prize for the most unusually named Nitespot in Bangkok.   Nevertheless, a local suds-maker decided to present them with some new neon to light the way....
 SOI  KATOEY  (Silom Soi 4)  

 SOI  22  
            Cave Club had actually been open for almost three months, but they did so without letting anyone know (they now understand why they have very few customers).   Located next door to their noisy sister, Bangkok Betty, in the Holiday Inn, they are at last beginning to be discovered by outside crowds....   The curriculum vitae is that of disco-pub-karaoke, depending perhaps on the crowd.   Welcome them to Bangkok's piranha pool.
 SOI  22  (Sukhumvit)  

            Last issue we noted that the Kiss Bangkok Massage appeared to be readying for an opening.   And ready they were.   Welcome them to the slippery slope.
 SOI  22  (Sukhumvit)  

            The Exotic Massage, open again, closed again, is now open again.   Keep at it, old sons.   And daughters....
 SOI  22  (Sukhumvit)  

            Bit Style Fantasy Massage Club has reopened.   As it is wont to close on a whim, and reopen on another, we will, in the future only report on this Venue should it be closed permanently.
 SOI  22  (Sukhumvit)  

            Located on Soi Starlight, the BKK 48 Massage has reopened after a brief closure last month.   Welcome back to the grind.
 SOI  22  (Sukhumvit)  

            Also located on Soi Starlight, Taffy's Faulty Towers has closed for good this time.   "Taffy" is moving up country and intends to kick back and enjoy life....   And more power to him....
 SOI  22  (Sukhumvit)  

            Another (new) denizen of Soi Starlight, the Stronger Bar has rolled out the red carpet to one and all.   Welcome them to the night circus.
 SOI  22  (Sukhumvit)  

            And yet another new Starlighter, the Butterfly Bar & Restaurant has thrown open it's doors to the public.   (Figuratively, that is - they are airconditioned...)   This is the young sister to the Butterfly Bar in Queen's Park Plaza.   May they persevere.
 SOI  22  (Sukhumvit)  

            The Penguin / B2 Massage & Spa have been holding their own in the Honey Plaza compound.   Another one 'For-The-Archives'.
 SOI  22  (Sukhumvit)  

            Overground was darker than a poisoned well when we passed by on last Friday night.   No sign saying, 'Out To Lunch', but that doesn't mean they weren't.   We did see some LED lights from the power strips and coffee pot, so likely they are coming back....   They have closed without notice in the past, so if any regular customers came by that night, please don't despair - they will likely reopen soon.   (We will be checking, of course, on our rounds at the end of the month.....)
 SOI  22  (Sukhumvit)  

            The longer I pound the midnight streets surveying what the night can do (...don't you know what the night can do?), the less I am surprised by what I see.   But I was in for a real surprise last Saturday.   On previous surveys, I had walked past a sign saying Telefono a number of times, noticing a rather standard-looking telephone booth.   And that was it.   However, on Saturday, I saw two meeters-and-greeters standing outside the telephone booth, so I asked them what was up.   They said the Telefono was a lounge bar.   I said it was a telephone booth.    They said go into the telephone booth and punch this number into the telephone.   I did, and one interior wall of the telephone booth opened up - into a well-appointed lounge.   Blown away, who knew?.   Located across from the back of the old Q Bar, down a small and dark lane....   Don't leave town before you've seen it.
 SOI  AMBASSADOR   (Sukhumvit 11)  

            Yet another one For-The-Archives, this view looking out toward the Soi, past the Butterfly Bar and the Hangout.
 QUEEN's  PARK  PLAZA  (Sukhumvit 22)  

            Last month, what was Love & Service / HIP'S moved into the old [H] Massage digs, and it looked like they were going to keep their old signage.   Nope, they now identify themselves with the Mitsue Group symbol (only).   If you don't know it, you won't know it.   If you are Japanese, you will know it.
 SOI  DEAD  ARTISTS  (Sukhumvit 33)  

            The Chillax Spa have seen a higher calling, disappearing into the night.   Taking their place this month, modus operandi unchanged, is the Top Thai Massage & Spa 2.   Not even the prices have changed....   We hope they have a 'Happy Beginning'.   ..... I'll bet you didn't see that coming.....
 SOI  DEAD  ARTISTS  (Sukhumvit 33)  

            We thought that Dr BJ's bars would be permanent fixtures on Soi Eden, but, well, wrong again.   The Chrome Bar has taken over the reins of the Dr BJ's Nuru, and done it in style.   Looking good.   Wish them well in these bright lights, big city....

Door Art Of The Month

           As one walks past, the striking 'white-on-black' on the Chrome Bar is in such juxtaposition with the surrounding bars, it would be impossible to ignore.   A head-turner, and worthy of this month's Door Art of the Month Award.

 SOI  EDEN   (Sukhumvit 7/1)  

            Likewise the Dr BJ's Salon.   Disappeared without a trace - to be replaced by the tastefully appointed Wood Bar.   Quite suddenly; ...too suddenly up and gone....   We had seen quite a bit on the Dr BJ's bars on the Internet lately, unfortunately by the usual immature new arrival-types who were out to show the world all there is to know about living in Bangkok's gutters.   That aside, wishing the Wood Bar all the best in the Big Uneasy.
 SOI  EDEN   (Sukhumvit 7/1)  

            A For-The-Archives shot of The Boys Bangkok, one of the longer-lived bars in the Twilight Zone....

            This may be the last photo of the Country Road located in what is left of The Tunnel.   By the time you read this, it will have closed.   But not to worry, it is reopening on Soi 4 (Soi Nana) just past the Swan Bar.   This leaves the Check In katoey pool bar as The Tunnel's last-man-standing... OK, poor choice of words... but you get my meaning....

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 Queen's Castle Bar show bar was closed down.   It would however reopen the following month.   It is still at that location, with a slightly modified name; Queen's 1.

   *    The upstairs Don Juan Club and Karaoke closed, only to be replaced by the J-Ju Pub & Karaoke.   It is currently the top two (of 4) floors of Radio City.

   *    The upstairs Touch Bar closed down.   It was located on the Surawong Rd side of Mizus - no venue currently occupies that location..

Patpong 2

   *    Up on The Ramp, the James & Vinai Club took over for the just-closed Sweetheart Club.   No Nitespot currently operates at that location.

   *    The Screw Boy opened in the then-recently opened, and then-closed A Go Go Boy.   Screw Boy currently remains at that location.

   *    The Chicken Delight bar beer began operation on The Island, where it remains to this day.

Soi Cowboy

   *    The Jukes A Go-Go Bar opened in the old Juke Box digs.   Today, that real estate is occupied by Shark.

   *    The New Salambo Bar A Go-Go Bar opened in the old Eros Bar digs.   Today, that real estate is occupied by Lighthouse.

   *    The Versus Pub opened in the then-recently closed Buddy Beer Pub Restaurant.   Today that lot is home to Spanish on 4.

   *    The Chilli House outside bar closed for good.

Buckskin Joe Village       (~ October 1988 to October 2006)
(Also known -originally- as Tobacco Road or Soi Rot Fai or, 'The Tracks', and later
as Machim [Thai] and Soi Zero)

   *    The Moon Bar beer bar reopened after a one-month closure.

Dateline: U.S.A
Anarchy & Graffiti

This graphic excerpt from Internet is, under current legal precedents and prevailing interpretations considered 'Fair Use' under copyright law.

      The progressive worsening of America's 'race relations' under the current political administration has gone from a state of "deterioration" to one of "collapse", as evidenced by the spontaneous arisings of such as initiatives as 'Black Lives Matter'.   The Black Lives Matter awareness campaign has resulted in a large number of protests nationwide, mostly by black Americans, against provoked and/or unprovoked police shootings of black persons.

This graphic excerpt from Internet is, under current legal precedents and prevailing interpretations considered 'Fair Use' under copyright law.

      Uncontrolled and unconstrained protests have historically gotten out of hand, and the Black Lives Matter protests are no different; inevitably deteriorating into riots and acts of anarchy.   This somewhat muted (at least so far) state of national rebellion has drawn the wingnuts, the mentally unstable and the retarded, out of their lairs, resulting in a string of assassinations of American police officers.   This, by association, has led, unfortunately, to the inextricable linking of the Black Lives Matter initiative to these shootings of police officers - diminishing to zero any chance they might have had to improve on 'justice' meted out on the streets of America.

This graphic excerpt from Internet is, under current legal precedents and prevailing interpretations considered 'Fair Use' under copyright law.

      Following suit, a number graffiti artists have begun adding their anarchistic writings and sentiments in support of the killing of police officers to the walls and buildings around America.   And although survey after survey has shown that gang and other violence-provoking graffiti is less than 10% of all graffiti, this divisive ten percent has once again blackened the image of all graffiti writers.    (The other 90% of graffiti writings are by various 'crews' of three-to-five young men competing for peer recognition, wall space and 'exposure'.)   And while the illness that currently devours America is not caused by these anarchic, anti-police graffiti messages, it is certainly no excuse for them.
