March's Nightlife News
Bangkok's Bars - 20 Years Ago  
A Smile in the Land of Smiles.
Reader's Corner: "The Malaysia"
Graffiti #142 : On Trump ...

      Its been a year and a half since we updated the Nana Area (Soi 4 Sukhumvit).   Way past due...   Below are newly refreshed maps of both Nana Plaza Night Entertainment Area and Soi Nana Night Entertainment Area: the two being joined at the hip...    

      The biggest change was in Soi Nana, where the renovations at the Rajah Hotel were, and are going on.   The right side (looking in) has been completed, and the area is repopulating with Night Entertainment Venues - some from the previous incarnation of the Rajah, and some new.   Judging by the amount of real estate available for lease within the Rajah compound, and that soon to come on line, the Rajah could become a Night Entertainment Area in its own right.   (Others have said this is not likely, as the rents are a bit steep.... a "wait and see" item...).

      There are big changes going on in Nana Plaza also, but not in the Nitespots themselves.   The Plaza is currently getting a new gigantic roof (see our pic below in the Night Follies).   This presumably makes it more customer friendly in the rainy season.   Many are saying why try to fix something that wasn't broken.   Another "wait and see" item...



March's Thai Smile is out of time. but not out of memory.

BOOKS ...worth a read !

Not The Browser 
   Reader :   Hi Guys,
   Missing a column for March?   Hope you are ok, guys.   Or maybe my browser didn't get the latest update?   Cheers

   Midnite Hour:   We are terribly late this month, having experienced some minor damage to our key staff in an auto accident (all is well now).   Thanks for writing in.
To Publish or Not To Publish...
   Reader:   You guys publishing this month???

   Midnite Hour:   Minor accident has set me back.   Should be able to get the site up in a few days...
Stickman Recalled...
   Reader:   Hi, Just wanted to say thank you for keeping the Bangkok Eyes website running.   I only discovered it last year after Stickman closed down, but I've been slowly digging through all your articles.   The old-fashioned website layout adds charm.   :)
       Hope to see many articles from you in the future.   Keep up the good work!

   Midnite Hour:   Thanks for reading and writing in.   I also miss reading the Stickman column, Stickman is a friend, and we still correspond on occasion now that he is back home in New Zealand.   I have encouraged him to resume his website, but it looks like he has 'moved on'. As I am a resident in Thailand, I should be able to continue indefinitely with Bangkok Eyes.
Bobby's Gone - But Cosmos?
   Reader:   Nice piece about Bobby.   I met him when he still had his coffee shop inside and across from that KFC.   I used to go there and get his great home made sandwiches.   We would chat about Bkk life and other things.   Little did I know about his past.   I wondered what happened to him.   I will miss him.

On another Patpong note. I was in Cosmos recently and I saw a For Sale sign on the door.   I talked to Vinai later that evening.   Got the impression that he had enough of the business and was ready to finally retire.   Any info and what's your take and intel say?

Thanks and keep up the good work.

   Midnite Hour:   I had also spoken to Vinai earlier last month - and I was left with the same impression - that he is finally ready to retire.    We'll have to wait and see, its been up for sale for more than two months, and no takers.   Perhaps he will change his mind, I would hate to see it disappear.

Let the March 2018 Follies  begin-

            The King's Castle 1 is, as can be seen from the pic, closed for renovations.   But that's not all...   The next door Camelot Castle (which had deteriorated into an unpopular open-fronted beer bar) has also closed, and is part of the same renovation.   So what's it gonna be?   A new triple-shophouse super King's Castle, or yet another 'big bag' shop?   We'll get back atcha next time around.

            Last month we noted that the Pussy Special had reverted to it's old name, Pussy Magic, leaving Patpong 1 with two identically named upstairs 'Pay-For-Show' bars.   This month, they have reverted back again to their Pussy Special name.   Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of rip-off bar owners....

            La Happy Bar Show Bar


            The Thai Smile Bar has closed down yet again, and this time it looks like a wrap.   Should it, somehow, reopen - we shall get back atcha, however until then we have removed it from 'the register'....

            Once again, the Black Pagoda outdoes the competition, both in graphic design and quality entertainment.   Location: Suspended above Patpong 2.   Do what you do, do well, gents....

            Spice Girls not only boasts of a long and successful run on Soi Cowboy, they also have some striking 'dynamic signage'.   (This yet another in our series of short clips showing the dynamic aspect of Bangkok's 'new neon'..

Nana Plaza

...And we hope the engineering is more robust than it looks....   -Just sayin'....

            Last month we noted that the three-part Nana Beer Garden had a name of its own (never posted), however this month, we note its demise.   There is talk that once the construction crane departs, it will be rebuilt (somewhat similar floorplan) - and have the same name.   More later.....

            The unthinkable has happened....   Annie's Massage (one of Bangkok's older steam & cream fishbowl massage parlors) has called it a night.   Only swirling debris and vulgar massage touts clutter the once infamous premises.   Annie's, according to the proprietress, goes back to 1972.   Annie's was located on the Soi 2 side of the Rajah Hotel compound.   Ashes to ashes, so be it then....


            This bright bit of new neon in front of the Rajah Hotel is either the new name of the hotel, or the moniker they are giving to the Night Entertainment Area in front of the hotel.   I suppose we will eventually find out....


            We have absolutely no idea what the occasion might be on Soi Katoey that would warrant the recent festooning of Chinese lanterns (they weren't there for Chinese New year).   Nevertheless, they definitely do make for a colorful display.

            Hugs Bar Karaoke has plummeted headlong into the Abyss.   May The Fates treat them more kindly the next time 'round...

 SOI  22  
            Passion Massage has become Bangkok Passion Massage....   Same menu, different day.   Wish them the best in their dark pursuits, in these dark times...
 SOI  22  (Sukhumvit) 

            The Honey Pub (originally Honny Pup) has gone belly up.   Contract expired, and no renewal.   They ducked out at the last minute, using their deposit as their last month's rent....   Oh, well...
 SOI  22  (Sukhumvit) 

            The once-lively Happy Station 11 has closed yet again.   Should it reopen, we shall so advise - however it looks like it was operating on a shoestring, so we don't have high hopes...
 SOI  AMBASSADOR  (Sukhumvit Soi 11) 

            The Meaw Meaw Bar (annex) has reopened - now that the main Meaw Meaw has got up-and-running full steam.   This time without the neon - perhaps to come at a future time...   Welcome them back to the wolfpack.
 QUEEN's  PARK  PLAZA  (Sukhumvit 22) 

            The Anego, last man standing in 'Soi Tenderloin', has succumbed to what will be a very large wrecking ball levelling a long stretch of real estate on Soi 33.   No indication as to their fate....

 SOI  DEAD  ARTISTS  (Sukhumvit 33) 

            The Sakuranbo Snack has closed for the second time in as many months.   Only shadows welcome the passerby.   Looks like the fat lady has sung the last haiku...

 SOI  DEAD  ARTISTS  (Sukhumvit 33) 

            The Tenderloins has some difinitive signage up this month - which by the way - indicates they are more closely linked to the Bistro 33 than originally thought.   Same great chow, same 'sports bar' theme, better parking, better digs.   Located at the back of Subsoi 5.   Let the good times roll...

 SOI  DEAD  ARTISTS  (Sukhumvit 33) 

            Two months ago, with extensive renovations just behind them, the Night Flight Beer & Pub becane a boutique hotel featuring the 3R Rebalance Spa.   Not to let momentum wane, this month they have also opened the Bangkok Beer Cafe.   Higher and higher....
 SOI  EDEN   (Sukhumvit 7/1) 

            The B & A Bistro, in spite of appearances, has closed down.   New folk have taken over, and will be providing some new neon in the near future.   Get ready to rock 'n roll...
 SOI  EDEN   (Sukhumvit 7/1) 

            In the "We Don't Make Mistrakes Department", last month we noted the soon-to-be opening Nitespot named Emmy.   Actually, it turned out to be a hairdresser salon....






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
March 1998

   *  Radio City reopened its closed half, fully into the swing again.   It is at the same location today.

   *  The Takara II Massage and Barber became Takara II Barber Shop - a name-change only.

   *  The upstairs Superman A Go Go Boys opened newly in the then-recently closed Donna Bar digs.   No Nitespot currently occupies that real estate.

Patpong 2
March 1998

   *  The Mask Go Go Boy closed.   It was located on 2nd floor of the Cosmos Stairwell.   No Nitespot currently occupies that real estate.

   *  Bua Luang Karaoke opened in the Super O.K. Club digs.   It was located on the 5th floor of the Cosmos Stairwell   No Nitespot currently occupies that real estate.

   *  Noi's Heavenly Steps Girlie Bar closed.   It was located on on the 2nd floor across from The French Kiss.   No Nitespot currently occupies that real estate.

   *  The Pussy Center closed.   It was located on on the 2nd floor in Soi Bookstore.   No Nitespot currently occupies that real estate.

Soi Cowboy
March 1998

   *  The New Popeyes closed.   It would eventually become Spice Girls ( it is today).

   *  The The Long Gun II (upstairs / downstairs) closed.   It would eventually become today's Rawhide.

   *  The Bluebird Lounge (2nd) and Bluebird Club Physical Massage (3rd) closed, leaving only Bluebird Club on the ground floor.   It would eventually become Baccara ( it remains today).

Nana Plaza
March 1998

   *    The Ground Level Matterhorn became the Matterhorn Bar - Restaurant.   Today, Bunnies occupies that real estate.

   *    The 3rd Level Tabasco Charlies opened newly.   I'll bet there isn't a single person in Bangkok today that remembers that bar...

Soi Katoey
( Silom Soi 4 )
March 1998

   *    The Rome Cafe formerly unnamed, placed some neon outside to reveal who they were.   They were located just before today's 4 Sports.

   *    The Kool Spot Pub reopened.   It is no longer in business: it was located next to today's Bas Living Room.

Buckskin Joe Village
(~ November 1988 to November 2006)
(Also known -originally- as Tobacco Road or Soi Rot Fai or, 'The Tracks', and later as Machim [Thai] and Soi Zero)
March 1998

   *    The Fair Play Bar reopened after a one-month closure.

   *    The Kiss Me Bar closed.

But is it ....ART ?

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


In Planet Earth's wide, wild and wondrous théâtre de l'absurde, America's quixotic, twisted 'litigation mania'-driven Legal System remains king.

Weeks ago, a Federal Judge ( did this get to be a Federal case?!) by the name of Frederic Block ruled that Jerry Wolkoff, the owner / developer of 5Pointz, a derelict building, abandoned many years ago in Queens, New York would pay a total of $6,700,00.00 dollars in recompensatory awards to 21 individual graffiti artists - for painting over their graffiti while making preparations to demolish his building.   See our earlier story : "This Graffiti bit's done got outta' hand"  < link > .

On the one hand, we should have seen this travesty of justice coming down the pipeline.   First there were legal rulings which guaranteed graffiti artists copyright protection for their works.   This opened the courtroom floodgates for graffiti artists to demand of film makers, TV producers and advertsing executives compensation for using their works, or even for having their works incidentally visible in the background - regardless of those works' other illegal underpinnings in vandalism.   But this recent 5Pointz award boggles the mind, numbs the senses and pushes the limits of the absurd.

To review, the 5Pointz building had been abandoned for years, and owner / developer Jerry Wolkoff made a verbal agreement with a group of graffiti artists which would allow them to use the facility free of charge to create what the graffiti artists would label the 'world's largest open-air aerosol museum' - an act of generosity that would eventually blow back in his face big-time...   (Notice the obvious attempt at 'gentrification' - no longer any reference to 'vandalism', these thrown-up pieces are now part of an 'aerosol museum'...   Oh, dear boys, how refined you have become...)   

While some of the artists didn't object to their art 'going down with the building" (at least until the lawyers got involved) they did object to the owner's "arrogance".   According to the graffiti artists, Wolkoff had the 'arrogance' to paint over the graffiti a year prior to demolishing the building.   This 'arrogance' must have weighed heavily in Judge Block's "guilty-as-charged' ruling, and his insistence at awarding the maximum allowable US150,000 to the artists for each of their pieces he deemed worthy of being called 'art'.   It wouldn't be out of place here to remind the judge of the US Constitution and specific rights of property owners...   Just sayin'...

This frankly kafkaesque ruling is setting a legal precedent that will cause homeowners, businesses, municipal governments, state governments, national government entities like the National Park Service, curators of National monuments, and others, grievous legal headaches and payouts every time they wash graffiti off their walls.   And the unintended consequences?   Everyone and his kid brother will now want to go out and become a graffiti "artist", in hopes of landing that one big payoff....   Every adolescent arrested for graffiti vandalism will be suing for financial gains immediately his graffiti is eradicated.   Ahennnh...
