December'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 #153

      As a matter of course, MIDNITEHOUR periodically revisits the Sukhumvit sois showing 'promise' in the Night Entertainment arena.   Such is the case with our return to Soi 23 this month.   But we hadn't anticipated the growth in viable Nitespots or the increase in the Soi's general popularity.

      Whisgars' outdoor dining lounge is a most popular choice.
 SOI  23  Sukhumvit  Rd  

      We note up-front that this article does not incorporate the joined-at-the-hip Soi Cowboy and the detailed Soi Cowboy map, which is covered elsewhere on MIDNITE HOUR <link>.   However, we have included both Crazy House and @ Corner which have Soi 23 addresses and are usually associated with Soi Cowboy.

      For a number of years, Soi 23 was known as a "massage parlor soi - that also had Pegasus".   And while that is also true today (and while it was a slight over-simplification), there is, as we will be seeing, currently a lot more going on.

      Bradmans Pub at the top of Soi 23 is typical of the "good
drinking, better eating" Venues to be found.
 SOI  23  Sukhumvit  Rd  

      In this month's survey, while we acknowledge the flood of massage parlors, we will not be emphasizing them - other than to duly record them on our map, above.   Our efforts, photographic and written, will be to highlight the "Pubs & Clubs" which are gaining a solid foothold in the Soi.

      Wanida Massage typifies the numerous massage parlors on Soi 23.
 SOI  23  Sukhumvit  Rd  

      A rundown, in no particular order, of the " Pubs & Clubs" for Soi 23 is as follows:

* Bradman's Pub
* Scruffy Murphys Pub (ex: The Queen Vic)
* Whisgars
* The Clubhouse
* Banana Club
* The Crossbar Pub
* Pegasus (Member)
* Narz (Narcissus, Member)
* Lemon Club
* Glow

-Considerably more than enough Nitespots to provide a number of 'consecutive nights out on the town'.

      The Lemon Club is the latest 'Entertainment Complex' entry on the Soi
 SOI  23  Sukhumvit  Rd  

      Last, but certainly not least, is the long-established community of Japanese Night Entertainment Venues at the far end of Soi 23, as you zigzag your way the back way to Soi 31.   At first glance, one might think that the Japanese bars, karaokes and snacks had dried up, but in fact, they have just moved deeper into the Soi into the upper part of Young Place (refer to map).   There, one can find a number of the older Japanese Nitespots, along with a number of 'new arrivals' that have come in from other Sukhumvit sois in recent years.

      Twins, along with Siamese Twins are among the 'old-hand' bars at the top of Soi 23.
 SOI  23  Sukhumvit  Rd  

      Below are additional photographs of a few of Soi 23's Nitespots.

      The "Crossbar" has the advantage of being easily accessed from Asoke.
 SOI  23  Sukhumvit  Rd  

      Pegasus - the 'Entertainment Complex' that 'pioneered the back end of Soi 23.

      The Hikari is typical of the Japanese Nitespots found at Young Place.
 SOI  23  Sukhumvit  Rd  

      The Clubhouse is another popular 'sports bar' style pub.

' ACTION ' At The Night Market ? 
   Reader :   Enjoyed your article on the Rot Fai Night Market this last month, and I am tempted to make the journey out for an evening exploration.   But you did not mention the most important aspect of the Night Market - is it a place where single men would want to frequent in order to find a lady companion for shorter or longer times?   From your description it sounds like it is going to be an extremely long trip out there.

   Midnite Hour:   The Night Entertainment Scene at the Night Market is extremely limited, as can be seen by the number of venues on our map.   As noted earlier, these Nitespots are Thai-oriented, and while they welcome farang, the style of 'entertainment' is not what we foreigners are wont to expect from Soi Cowboy or Nana Plaza.   For example, there are no hostess lounges, or A Go-Go bars, or even freelancer bars there.   Nor did we observe any 'full service' massage parlors inside, or outside of the Night Market.   FYI, it took us almost exactly one hour from the city center to get to that part of town.
Lek Carabao ?  
   Reader :   Hello, I noted in your last issue that there was a "Lek Carabao Cafe" at the Rot Fai market.   Is this really a cafe owned by the musician from Carabao, or is this a rip-off effort?

   Midnite Hour:   This Nitespot is in fact owned by Lek Carabao.   If you look closely at our photo (last issue) you will see a mannequin of him standing at the left side of the entrance - complete with moustache.
To FADE or not to FADE... 
   Reader :   I was just reading back a couple of issues in your October lead-off story on Khao San Road.   Your headline screams out at us that Khao San is 'fading'.   Yet when we look at your old map we see just about as many places as there are now.   That is hardly a "fade" wouldn't you say?

   Midnite Hour:   You are absolutely correct - if we are going by 'headcount' alone.   But Bangkok Eyes (in keeping with our charter) was referring to venues which would be classified as true Nitespots, and not just restaurants or foot-massage parlors.   Our definition of 'Nitespot' , or 'Night Entertainment Venue" would be where a person could, as a customer, have the likelihood of finding some 'action' and company.   To be sure, our definition (adopted at inception of the website) is subjective in nature, and we should have re-emphasized this in the article.

Let the December 2018 Follies  begin-

            The Pussycat had its soft opening last month, however, regrettably they never quite got 'round to the official one.   It was closed down tighter than McLeod's coin purse when we passed by the other evening - no signage indicating a reopening or hiring of new staff.   We'll take another pass at it next survey, and should there be a reversal of misfortune, we shall elucidate....

            A For-The-Archives pic of the long-running Rig 1 Pub located up on The Ramp.   The Ramp, which once teemed with a dozen or so Cocktail Lounges up on the 2nd level, is now down to a handful of bars.   Further confirmation, if more confirmation were needed, that the Patpongs Night Entertainment Area is slowly slipping beneath the waves...

            Up until last month, the Royal Salute carried two names : Royal Salute and King Corner Net (rumored to be an on-line poker venue). this month they have reverted to their original name: Royal Salute.

            A For-The-Archives photo of Cowboy 2 A Go-Go.   Note the Japanese script in bold view.   Also the "Ice Girls" (sic), the Dollhouse and the Shadow Bar neon can be seen in the background.

            Last month we noted that the Short Time signage had been torn down, and speculated that a new Nitespot might be getting ready to open.   Well, it happened.   This month, the Witchcraft has taken over - lock, stock and barstool..   Let the good times roll.

            Last month we noted the long-in-service Bangcockney Bar (top of Soi 6) had closed down, and we suspected the worst.   However "the worst" did not eventuate, and the Bangcockney Bar is back on-station, full-throttle.   May they persevere.


            The tiny Sugarbowl Bar & Restaurant, closed last month, has sprung forth with renewed vigor.   'Y'all can come back now.'

            Hugs Bar-Karaoke, are opening and closing on whatever whim takes them.   (This month they have reopened again.)   

 SOI  22  
            Last month the Second Base opened its doors to the public (see our photo & note last issue).   This month, in its place is the brand new Hangover - let's hope its longevity is somewhat better than its predecessor...   Let the nightgames begin...
 SOI  22  

            What was the Be Rich Massage is now a signless shophouse with a locked-down steel roller-shutter.   Not that there is a shortage of massage parlors on the Lemongrass subsoi...   May the fates deal them a better hand next time 'round...
 SOI  22  

            Last month we noted the closure of Vagabond bar beer at the foot of Subsoi Havana Social, and its replacement - the Ice Bar (which had not yet tacked up any neon).   This month we see the new signage - but note that it is a beer bar, like its predecessor, and not an "ice bar" per se.   Shake it, don't break it, ladies...

 SOI  AMBASSADOR  (Sukhumvit Soi 11) 

            Here's a sneak-peek at what the new Zaks will look like, if, indeed, it will even be "Zaks".   A wait-and-see item...
 SOI  AMBASSADOR  (Sukhumvit Soi 11) 

            The Hillary 3 is a swirling mass of hammers, dust and saws - as it dives into a total renovation program.   Note the sign in front advertising for hiring new employees - this is not necessarily a good sign, in fact it could be viewed a worrisome sign.   Many bars put up such signs when they are going out of business to put off creditors, and gain a little time to 'get out of Dodge'....    A Wait-and-See item, to be sure....
 SOI  AMBASSADOR  (Sukhumvit Soi 11) 

            The Flow has, it seems, gone down for the 3rd time, never to resurface.  Located in the Fenix Bldg, its the story of old - its customer base was rarely from the passing foot trade, and was therefore only occasionally busy...   
 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 re-closed.   In that they open and close so frequently, we will not be posting the same old file photo....
 SOI  AMBASSADOR  (Sukhumvit Soi 11) 

            A photo for the Archives - Moonshine Pub, one of QPP's long popular bars still going strong.   Yes, a distant cousin to Cowboy's Moonshine.   Gotsta get paid.
 QUEEN's  PARK  PLAZA  (Sukhumvit 22) 

            The Firm lasted almost exactly one year (the length of their lease?)   A tasteful, bright appearance, but they originally adopted a popular North American modus operandi - a phalanx of bouncers in black to add 'prestige'.   This approach, of course, failed, as have others for that reason.   So, they got rid of most of the bouncers, but by that time, Soi Dead Artists had become a future-construction site, and the handwriting was on the wall...   Greener grass, gentlemen...

 SOI  DEAD  ARTISTS  (Sukhumvit 33) 

            Joy, located on he 2nd level of S 33 Compact Hotel is yet again closed.   It opens and closes when it feels like it - so we won't write it off until we see the furniture and fixtures going out the door...

 SOI  DEAD  ARTISTS  (Sukhumvit 33) 

            A For-the-Archives pic of the back end of Soi Eden.
 SOI  EDEN  (Sukhumvit 7 / 1) 

            A photo for the archives of The New Boys Bangkok / Dream Boys.   Either our walk-through surveys are ill-timed, or we are noticing a definite down-turn of business in the ' Twilight Zone' these last few months...






With thanks to Cool Text -

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
December 1998

   *  Known to many as the 'Peppermint Lounge', the Peppermint Bistro Club & Restaurant closed.   No Nitespot currently occupies that real estate.

   *  The bar located above the King's Castle 2 - the Lucky Bar - closed.   -Only to be immediately replaced by the Concert Bar.   Those 2nd level digs are currently occupied by the Happy Bar.

   *  The already-closed Butterfinger continued with renovations from within its parent Gold Finger's.

Patpong 2
December 1998

   *  The bar that was Spice Girl located above today's De Talk reopened.   They had yet to put up a new sign.   No Nitespot currently occupies this space.

   *  Screw Boy, located next door to the Pink Panther, closed for renovations.   They are still there today.

   *  On Soi Bookstore (connecting PP1 & PP2) the upstairs Casanova reopened after a short closure.   That time around they called themselves Cassanova 85.   No bar currently occupies that space.

Soi Cowboy
December 1998

   *  Virgo, which opened newly the month previous in the former Pink Pussycat digs, closed after less than a month.   Today, that location is home to the Cockatoo.

   *  Lao Jaroen opened in the just closed Love Scene.   Today those digs are occupied by Cowboy's version of Kiss.

Nana Plaza
December 1998

   *  Obsession opened newly in the old Hot Rods location.    Obsession is still there today (after running for a spell as "True Obsession").

   *  The ground level Matterhorn Bar - Restaurant began co-displaying its signage with the new neon of the soon-to-be Red Lips.

   *  The 3rd level Beverly Hills opened in the then-recently closed Massage No 1.   (We'll bet there are not many long-term resident farang who remember this bar...)

Soi Katoey
( Silom Soi 4 )
December 1998

   *  The Hype added "Restaurant Bar" to its neon, becoming The Hype Restaurant Bar.

   *  X-Bar dropped "Bar" from their signage becoming " X".

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

December 1998

   *  No changes that month / year. -

But is it ....ART ?

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


      A bronze sculpture of David Bowie by artist Andrew Sinclair was unveiled last May in Aylesbury (Buckhamshire, England).   The funds for this tribute came from a private grant and a 100,000 GBP crowd-funding appeal.   It had all the bells and whistles - colored lighting and hourly broadcasts of various David Bowie recordings - Bowie fans regularly making the pilgrimage to the sculpture from the far corners of the planet.

      Nevertheless, it took less than 48 hours for the sculpture and the immediate surrounds to be vandalized by a graffiti 'artist' and his spraycans.   The unsolicited spraypaint message read "Feed The Poor First".

      Aylesbury's municipal officials finally got around to getting it cleaned up this last October - the full magilla - paint-removal and a wax and spit-shine.   ...Which must have appeared to the graffiti 'artist' as an invitation - he returned only hours after the wax was buffed to a shine - and painted David bright blue.

      As at this writing, the sculpture, formally named 'Earthly Messenger', has not been de-defiled of its blue paint, but the municipality said they would be getting around to it as soon as possible....
