Top 6: Best Go Go Bars in Bangkok

Last updated: March 5th, 2017 | in Bangkok | Nightlife | Thai Girls

When you come to visit Thailand’s capital it’s probably not just for checking out BKK’s main tourist attractions and the electronic shopping malls, but to experience the city’s infamous red light districts. There are three of them namely Soi Cowboy, Nana Plaza and Patpong that I explain in great detail here.

If you come to any of BKK’s red light districts you can get quickly overwhelmed by the huge range of go go bars. It’s hard to make a decision what place to give a try not just because there are so many bars around but also because at most places the hottest girls are trying to get you inside while inside the dancers are a lot more average and you might be disappointed just after having ordered your drink.

To make you avoid such bad surprises here is the ultimate list and description of the Top 6 Best Go Go Bars in Bangkok and their exact location on the map:

1. Baccara – Soi Cowboy

Best Go Go Bar in Bangkok

Baccara is an institution not just on Soi Cowboy but in all of Bangkok. It’s packed every night and if you come after 9pm you might have difficulties to find a place to sit down. Unlike a lot of other go go’s the girls inside are as hot and beautiful as the ones outside trying to get you in (not that they need to put in a lot of effort).

There are two floors in Baccara with stages surrounded by red couches and a bar on the black wall, on the second floor the floor is of glass so if you sit downstairs you can enjoy the best views in Bangkok.

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. The girls usually wear school skirts and that may be one of the reasons why it”s especially popular among Japanese and Korean men.

  • Prices: No cover charge like in all other A Go Go’s in Bangkok, but you should buy drinks (most drinks including beers and spirits cost 180 Baht) to stay and watch. Lady drinks cost 200 Baht and the bar fine is 600 Baht for all girls at all times.

2. Cowboy 2 – Soi Cowboy

Go Go Girls in Bangkok

It’s almost impossible to miss this place right in the center of Soi Cowboy as it doesn’t only have a huge number of girls but also some of the youngest and sexiest ones on the strip. Cowboy 2 is a true paradise if you like “fresh” girls and that means not only in terms of age but also that many of them have just recently started to work in the bar.

The girls are divided into 2 categories: Go Go Girls and Coyotes. The latter ones are more attractive and have a higher bar fine (see below). Cowboy 2 must be the only bar where it’s more fun to sit outside because of the great views all around.

There’s one big stage inside with about 10 girls dancing at all times. Unfortunately they have a no-take-off policy here but that’s typically the trade-off you have to make when visiting a Go Go Bar: Either beautiful girls in bikinis or average girls naked. The next bar on this list is an exception though and combines both advantages – see below.

  • Prices: 150 Baht for beers which is relatively cheap compared to other bars. However, the lady drinks at Cowboy 2 are quite expensive at 200 Baht (tequila) and 230 Baht (beer/whiskey-cola). The bar fine for the Go Go Girls is 800 Baht and for the Coyote Girls it’s a whopping 3,000 Baht. Are they 3.75 times more attractive? Of course not.

3. Crazy House – Soi Cowboy

Crazy House Bangkok

My favorite Go Go Bar in Bangkok. It just can’t get any better. There is a large 8-shaped stage on the ground floor that has more than ten naked girls dancing at any time. They really enjoy being on stage dancing and even better: The girls in this place are way above average, most of them are really stunning hot, young, skinny, nice boobs, you will not leave here saying I’ll go check another place because I couldn’t find a girl that I like.

Make sure you don’t miss visiting the second floor. What you get here is entertainment pure. It’s not the classic “ping pong show” but you’ll have the girls performing incredible sexy scenes on two square-shaped glass floors like putting oil on each other then rubbing on each others body before taking a bunch of candles and sprinkling wax all over their naked bodies. There is even an elevator connecting the floors though it’s mainly the girls taking it when too lazy walking up and down the stairs.

There is also a third floor though for now it’s just the area where the girls are getting dressed and eating. Crazy House is the newest establishment in the area, it’s just around the corner from Soi Cowboy on Sukhumvit Soi 23.

  • Prices: Without doubt the best value-for-money joint in this category. Beers are 170 Baht, cocktails 200 Baht and lady drinks 160-170 Baht. The bar fine is 700 Baht for all girls at any time.

4. Tilac – Soi Cowboy

Best Go Go Bar in Bangkok 2

Tilac is not just the biggest Go Go Bar on Soi Cowboy, it’s also the most modern one with fancy lighting, countless mirrors and large TV screens in case you get bored watching the dancers. There is one big main stage and six smaller stages spread around the room.

The bar has become famous in the Hollywood movie “Hangover Part 2” which is one of the reasons why a lot of money has been invested to ensure everything in this bar is of high quality and design.

The girls in Tilac are super hot and thin, however a bit overactive at times which makes it hard to just sit down and relax. No take off here but you can look under their skirts.

  • Prices: Standard prices for this great Go Go deal with beers at 165 Baht and lady drinks cost 160 Baht. The bar fine is 800/1,000 Baht depending on the girl. There is a daily happy hour until 8pm with beers for 80 Baht.

5. Rainbow 4 – Nana Plaza

Best Go Go Bar in Bangkok 3

The best Go Go Bar in Nana Plaza is located on the second floor, if you walk into the courtyard take the stairs up to your right. If you’ve never been to a strip club before, it’s difficult not to get overwhelmed when you walk into Rainbow 4 as there are well over a hundred super attractive girls competing for your attention and company.

Rainbow 4 is one of the few bars in the Plaza that are packed with expats and tourists alike every day of the week. It has two big L-shaped stages, each of them with more than two dozen of girls dancing topless – which isn’t as common in red light Bangkok as it used to be.

Again the quality of girls in Rainbow 4 is among the best not just in Nana Plaza, but in all of Bangkok. They are young, light skinned and what’s really striking there are so many girls with nice and big breasts, partly natural, partly self made.

  • Prices: No cover charge, prices for drinks are at 155 Baht for beer and whiskey, cocktails cost between 170 and 190 Baht. Lady drinks sell for 140-150 Baht (cola/tequila) and the bar fine is 600 Baht.

6. Shark – Soi Cowboy

Shark A Go Go Bangkok

Located right next to Baccara on Soi Cowboy, this is another hot spot packed with some of BKK’s most sexy go go girls who wear some of the hottest outfits of the whole Soi (see-through bras!). The interiors of Shark is almost identical to Baccara with big central stages on two floors surrounded by comfortable couches.

The ceiling is transparent so you’ll enjoy sitting right at the stage on the ground floor. Of course that means the place is packed every night of the week but if you have a look upstairs there are surprisingly few people around and you can enjoy your time in a much more quiet atmosphere. However note that the girls are not getting naked at Shark.

Shark has decent techno music but sometimes the girls seem to be more enthusiastic dancing when the boss is around. Maybe the best Go Go choice in Bangkok if you are out for a relaxing drink in the bar and don’t fancy being surrounded by three girls that ask for lady drinks two minutes after you sat down.

  • Prices: Prices for drinks are at 165 Baht for beers, 180 Baht for lady drinks and the bar fine is 600 Baht for the Go Go Girls and 1,500 Baht for the Coyote Girls. There is a daily happy hour until 8pm which makes a great deal to start your night with all drinks for only 80 Baht.

Soi Cowboy vs Nana Plaza Go Go Bars

You might be wondering why most of the Go Go Bars listed here are in Soi Cowboy. Well, that’s just because Soi Cowboy has the best bars by far. I’m not a big fan of Nana Plaza, by now almost half of the building is filled with ladyboy bars and also the atmosphere is a lot more hectic and sometimes kind of rude. Similar to Patpong, BKK’s oldest red light district but with most Thai guys trying to hook you up for a Ping Pong Show Scam in Bangkok.

If you still want to give those areas a try I recommend Rainbow 4 and Angelwitch as well as in Nana Plaza for fun and free Ping Pong shows (just order a beer for 150 Baht) and Bada Bing and Show Girls in Patpong.

What’s a Good Time to Visit the Go Go Bars?

The bars obviously try to lure in customers well before the main action starts. That means most bars have happy hours until 8 or 9pm with all drinks for 80 or 90 Baht. That’s certainly a good deal, but you better just sit outside and watch the scene. The girls start dancing either at 8 or 9pm and that’s exactly when the happy hours end. I recommend you go to the bar of your choice at 9pm, that’s usually the time when all go go girls step up on stage to present themselves before the rotation starts. Otherwise no later than 11pm or the most attractive ladies will already be taken.

Do the Girls get Naked in BKK’s Go Go Bars?

There are fewer and fewer A Go Go’s in the capital where the girls take off everything. They are mostly wearing bikinis nowadays. There are plenty of exceptions though. Like mentioned in the article you will normally make a trade-off between very attractive and light skinned girls who wear bikinis or “decent” girls who get naked once they start dancing. Baccara is the best example for the first type and Angelwitch for the second type of bar. And then you have bars like Tilac where you can see the girls’ pussies (no panties underneath their skirts) and Shark where they wear see-through bras.

    I have just put your web site on bookmark. it is curious to know some experience writtten in English though I am a Japanese visited Thailand 15 times. l think it is important to respect ladies since we are gentlemen. lt is fun to walk with full sweat in bangkok street.
    Thai people do not do it.

  • Filip says:

    The clubs listed are well-known and popular in Bangkok, very bustling and crowdy. I would also suggest to those interested in nightlife visit Phuket, namely Patong town, it’s got some great clubs, bars and so on, a really beautiful mountainous island. I kinda experienced the same atmosphere of festivity and vibes in St.Petersburg in night time. Although the climate is utterly different there central steerts are lively and packed with a bunch awesome venues: Golden Girls, Zavist, some tops custom-tailored pubs. As far as go-go dancing to my taste Zavist has some of the best shows in the city. Another popular bar among locals is Maxim, unfortunately didn’t get a chance to drop in so far…

  • Mike says:

    What’s the chances of finding hot girls in soi cowboy or nana plaza that do A level? Is it rare or are the girls fairly open to it. I’m going I’m May this year and can’t wait!

  • Holmes says:

    Do any of the go go bars have a place for short time themselves in the back or somewhere? This is for those of us in hostels without access to privacy. And I know that there’s all the oily massage places and have been but what if I want short time with someone from Crazy Horse?

  • Ms says:

    As a single female, thought I’d add my two cents. Unless you have a penis in Soi Cowboy, you’re invisible.

    I went to three bars (attempted four). Suzy Wongs (mix of ages. Some topless, some naked) seemed OK but the Mamasan checked my beer for it’s contents every few minutes. Noticed she didn’t do this with any of the male patrons. She went to take it away when still half full. I told her no and sat it out until the ‘show’ started. A garland of flowers from the hoo haa and ping-pong being standard fare. Though the neon body painting was beautiful. Bored of the Mamasan’s clear distaste of my presence, I left.

    To Baccara, denied entry. “What do you want?” Barked the bouncer. “To see the ladies” I replied. “No woman allowed”. Which is nonsense, I’d seen couples go in but he was having non of it. Apparently a single woman’s money’s not good enough. Shame.

    Cockatoo. I like kathoey, best of both. Small bar, bikinis only, very little actual dancing, too busy taking selfies and grooming themselves in the mirrors. Every time a farang entered, the girls would clamour around, blowing kisses and making the cutsey face. I bought a beautiful girl a drink, we chatted, told me how she hated how rough the men were with her arse and she said she liked women but as soon as a new guy entered, she hopped off and joined the throng of desperation. She came back once he’d ignored her but it put me off. Shame as I was about to make her an offer.

    Tilac (no boobs but you’ll get the odd flash of pussy under the skirts) Of the three I got into, my favorite. Initially. A group of girls chatted without pressure and told me the backstage gossip about clients once they realised I’m also ‘in the business’ (professional dominatrix) but were soon called back to shimmy on the poles. A girl with insane energy danced before me, making the usual flirty chat while she danced. I liked her, the Mamasan told me she does women so bought her a drink. She said cheers and continued to dance. The DJ called for the turn around and she finally sat next to me for no more than two minutes. Told me she loved me and left. I was pretty baffled. I looked around at guys who were enjoying the company of the girls who they’d purchased beverages for. Seeing my disappointment, she said she needed to see a man but flounced over to her friends.
    I left soon after, realising that despite the money burning a hole in my wallet, it wasn’t going to be spent.

    So there you go. If you’ve a dick, you’re king. If you’re a woman flying solo, don’t bother. Patpong is dreadful but Pattaya is far more fun and the girls less desperate (even though the prices quoted are higher than for a man). I may give Nana a go but after tonight, don’t think I can be arsed.

    P. S. Treat the ladies well please guys. Some of you treat them like garbage.

    • Peter Harcoff says:

      Thanks Ms for sharing your experience. Always good to hear how a farang woman is treated even if it’s not right. Hope your trip got better later.

      I went to Crazy House last night and was disappointed that of the few women who would even consider long time (at 2200 hours) they had to leave at 0600 to attend school. They didn’t look young so I assume they were uni students but even so it’s not good enough for a quoted price of 6,000 THB plus bar fine.

      Still, walking back to the hotel some women outside a massage parlour were touting for business so I asked if one of them wanted long time at my nearby hotel. For an agreed departure time of 0800, i.e. 9.5 hours and 4,000THB I got a shower with her, nude massage and two boom boom.

      Once she left I caught up on my sleep. :)

  • Alex says:

    Short time should be 2k max and long time, 3k. If mama san or presents a price list leave immediately. It is non of their business what you pay the girl. You do not know how she will perform or what she will do. I have been going to GG bars for over 25 and there is never a cover charge except at occasional ripp off places in the old days in Patpong. Patpong is useless now and has been for about 15 years. Nana Plaza is going the same way. Early closing-no nudity and Dreadful Techno and EDM. Soi Cowboy is also going downhill. Many of the bars are owned by the same Arab/Iranian. I stopped going to Bangkok for fun since the fun stopped including the street market and pop up restaurants being closed down. The Go Go bars are often filled with chain smoking Japanese and Korean men who the girls prefer. For the best sex and best girls the massage scene is best. Pattaya is best for go go bars but never accept a price list for girls and BF is rarely over 1k.

    • Nick says:

      Hi Alex, I was in Bkk early Jan and had gone to a new go go bar (not listed here), on querying the waitress I was told that the bar fine was 1200 and long term was 7k and even then some of the girls were reluctant to go out. Am going back in April for a weekend hoping for some more positive (and cheaper) responses…

  • CrazyHorseFan says:

    Hi guys. I just moved to BKK and took my first tour of Soi Cowboy last night with a local friend. Had a blast at Crazy Horse. We started in Dollhouse and one other place (I forgot the name, but had old ladies giving amazing shoulder/back massages). If I ever design a bar, I would NOT put mirrors at eye level. The ladies just look at themselves without engaging with the customers and it feels like watching a fish bowl – albeit a nice fishbowl :) Crazy Horse has perfectly placed air vents at eye level (not obtrusive for customers – most probably didn’t notice) for the girls, so they are looking down at customers giving a much better experience. Since it was my first time out in BKK, we splurged quite a bit and ended up being pretty popular with ladies and staff. Like Richard Feynman, I see myself making Crazy Horse a usual hangout where I do my work (and maybe play some bongos!). Next time I’ll bring my laptop :D

  • Matt says:

    Went to crazy house repeatedly last week and was quoted bar fines of THB 1,000 every time. Girls are stunning but their expectations for LT are ridiculous. 5,000 was the cheapest and I’m in my early thirties, reasonably good looking and generally have to pay below average. Admittedly, I was on the hunt for stunners though.

    Hey red cat – two visits to Bangkok and I’m still finding your guidance very useful!

        bad experience in Cowboy 2. I spent 8,100 bahn for one girl in total for two hours (one shot).

        I went to Cowboy 2 on 12/11/2016 and found one girl i liked (tag #:109). I told her that i would want a “long time” service (i.e., stay overnight in my hotel). She agreed with 5,000 bahn. I was Okay with the price since she was the type i liked. I took her back in my hotel. I asked for a “BJ”. She said that this needed additional 1,000 bahn. Also she needs 500 bahn for a taxi to go back. I gave her the money (in total 6,500 bahn now). She stayed in my hotel for two hours. I had only one shot. After this shot, she suddenly told me that she would go back to work since this was a “short time” service. I was so unhappy and argued with her that we agreed to have a “long time” service. But she said no.

        I think i would not go back to Cowboy 2 anymore. Please alert that you should never pay the money until you let the bar girl leave. I did not follow this suggestion.

  • Specialist says:

    There’s a 4th floor on top of Crazy House. It is a small Thai restaurant. I discovered it some months back (got curious). More recently, one of the girls from Crazy House took me there for casual dinner before returning to my hotel, and I was very pleasantly surprised. Nice place, good food, good service, nothing fancy, not at all expensive.

  • Virendra says:

    I am going to Bangkok in the month of Dec with my Wife. Are girls allowed in the Go Go Bars ?

  • Kevin says:

    Agree with fixed price in Baccara. They now give out cards that state the prices.

    Bar fine – 600
    Lady drinks – 200
    *minimum 2 lady drinks in order to bar fine.

    Short time – 3000
    Long time – 6000

    To backtrack slightly, rules to enter are same. You just need to buy a drink which is ~180.

  • Mohammad says:

    I was in baccara last night , they had fixed price, barfine and lady drink was 1000 and short time was 3000.

  • Leo says:

    I have to post this experience as this article promotes BACCARA as top bar and I went to that bar solely based on this website strong recommendation and that was my first gogo bar visit.
    Sorry to say, my first visit has given me the worst nightmare after landing in Bangkok, I am posting the entire story for benefit of readers who think this place is some top bar, when its definitely not and don’t want to be ripped off like me. Its one of the tourist scams where I have given them 3000 baht instead of 300 baht for drinks, the bills (currency notes) of 100’s and 1000’s look strikingly similar and in that bar light I made a stupid novice mistake. I realized this after coming to hotel and checking on balance. I went there next night and they basically came as a group and started shouting, I even found the waitress (old waitress who is short and looks viatnamese type), but they would not even ask her, but forced me out by all coming together (bouncers + managers + staff). On top of that, the only reason I even ordered that drink is because that waitress forced me to buy drinks to stay at that place – when she came I said I am good, she showed the hand to exit, which was super rude, I got pretty irritated and asked for menu and ordered some drink for sake of staying. I did not pickup any girl from there and left.
    Also, its NOT FREE as the article states, they force you to buy a drink for 200 baht, I mean what the fk, if you want to charge, charge entry fee, don’t scam people by playing on their need / weakness / desire or whatever. Same with girls, their sole objective first and foremost is get you to buy them drinks 200 baht each and play along, then they quote ridiculous price 3-6K + 600 bar fine and I don’t know how they behave once you take them, they might say be quick and leave you in misery after spending like 5000 baht. Honestly, I found massage girls more cultured and you might get good experience (again it depends), also bangkok bunnies at nana plaza seems decent from bar point of view, have not taken girl from there, so no comment on that.

    All in all 3000 baht down the drain for me from scam and 400 baht for drinks. Strip clubs in US have much better ethics compared to this garbage, AVOID LIKE PLAGUE.
    This is not a top bar or institution as the article projects, its a run of the mill slum bar at the bottom

    • Redcat says:

      Was your plan visiting the bar without buying a drink?

      • Leo says:

        No, that’s not the plan. What is unexpected is at entry you are forced to enter by buying a drink which is nothing but cover charge, in other bars you go in and they ask if you want drink, similar but not like this. Anyway the story is not so much about this, its about money lost by scam.

    • Peter Harcoff says:

      You went back the next night and said you gave them THB3,000 instead of THB300 and want a refund? I’m surprised they’re not still laughing. As for forcing you out, well what did you expect when you accuse them of being dishonest?

      Remember that losing face is important in Thailand (and many other countries), you’ve accused them of being thieves. Frankly: be thankful you walked out rather than being carried out.

      As a basic precaution against confusing notes I carry hundreds and smaller in a different pocket to the 1,000s.

      However, you can’t be sure that you made the mistake there and it isn’t a scam. Whilst there isn’t a cover charge the drinks are expected as you enjoy the show.

      I also went to Baccara last week and didn’t have any problems, indeed I had an interesting hour or two engaging with the ladies there. Maybe you’re the problem and not them?

      As for the women, be respectful and firm in what you want. If they won’t negotiate then they aren’t interested. Thank them and move on. A quick talk before buying them a drink will ensure you’re both on the same page.

      • Jack dawsan says:

        Exactly peter. Well put. Treat the girls with respect and they will reward you. I also have a lot of fun with the service girls and I have never been forced to buy a drink.

    • Rael says:

      FWIW, I have been to Baccara many times and not once have I experienced any type of drink “scam”. (I did however experience a different type of “scam”, but it wasn’t the bar’s doing, it was one of the girls I took home — see below for that story). When it comes time to pay my bill, I examine it carefully and make sure to give them the correct amount. As far as “being forced to buy a drink to enter”, I agree it’s a type of cover charge, but at least you’re getting a drink for your cover charge instead of simply being charged. You seem to suggest, “why not simply charge a cover?” Well, what’s the difference? Why not “simply buy the drink” and give it to someone if you don’t want it. By the way, of those go-go bars which do require you to buy a drink to enter (and there are several), Baccara has some of the most reasonable drinks prices. Keep in mind, that these bars make their bones by selling drinks. If you’re not going to drink, they simply don’t want you there. Unlike Western strip clubs, where you just fork out money to the girls to give you dances, at the Bangkok strip clubs the girls make their money by getting you to buy drinks. If they’re not selling drinks, they’re not getting paid. That’s why all the girls have their own receipt chits. Bottom line: Lesson 1 – watch your money and pay attention to each individual bill you are brought. Lesson 2 – expect to buy a drink for yourself (even if it’s just a soft drink) and a drink for a lady.

      Regarding this other “scam” I mentioned above. After buying a couple lady drinks for two separate ladies, and a couple for myself during the night, I decided to bar fine them both, as they were both agreeable to what I asked for and the price seemed reasonable considering they were both knockouts. I get back to my place and before any action takes place, they ask for their fee, which I gave them. As we get down to business, one of them gets sick…like really sick. She says she can’t perform tonight and wants to go home. I said, no problem, I understand, your friend can stay. But give me my money back. If you’re leaving, I’m not paying you. She refused. I tell them I think this is some kind of scam they worked out. I pay for both – one “gets sick” and has to leave – but I don’t get her money back? I pay for two but only get one?! I told them, fine let’s get in the taxi and we’ll all go back to the club and I can explain it to mamasan. Then neither of you get anything. (btw, it helps that I speak a bit of Thai). End of story – the one girl left, gave me my fee back (minus 150 baht I was willing to give her to take a cab home), and the other girl stayed a couple hours. The lesson here – never pay up front. If they want to the money bad enough, they’ll trust you to give it to them after.

      • Rael says:

        Oops! To be fair, this other issue I mentioned – with the two ladies perhaps trying to play me – that was NOT at Baccara. It was at Crazy House. I would still go back to Crazy House, because it’s one of the better clubs in that area and the ladies are mostly hot. But I’ll be more careful how I pay them if I take them out.

    • Woolly says:

      Strip Clubs in the U.S.??? Seriously? Go to any strip club in Vegas and it’s also No cover charge, but 2 drink minimum, + tip the doorman, tip the barman, tip the waitress(fair enough), tip the dancers, tip the bloke in the toilet who wants to turn the tap on for you, tip the D.J, tip the taxi man, tip the bloke who walks past on the way to the toilet cause he said hello :)
      Then you say their money looks the same, you should be used to that old boy. All the U.S. currency looks more alike than the Baht. Sounds like your stuff up, not their’s.

  • Peter Harcoff says:

    10 August Went to Crazy House lots of lovely naked women everywhere. But still they only want short time or lie and leave early. Probably better to enjoy the sights and then go elsewhere if you want a long time woman.

    12 August Went for a look and with the current unrest in Thailand there were lots of police in the Soi Cowboy area. Not one bare bit of flesh on display anywhere including Crazy House.

    Walked down to Nana Plaza and there were mostly topless women at Spanky’s, A small visible police presence mainly checking bags at the entrance.

  • Kevin says:

    Have the prices increase since your last update? I was in baccara two nights ago and the lady drinks were apparently 200baht while the bar fine remained 600baht. The girls looks mighty fine but the LT charges they quoted were ridiculous. Spoke to a few girls and were quoted some 6000baht to 7500baht for LT. I haven even clarify if those were whole night rates. Perhaps I made a mistake by offering lady drinks the moment they sat down with me so they must have thought I was a good carrot to chop! Anyhows, Baccara is somewhere I would gladly return to my next trip.

  • Abdul Turner says:

    I’m a Canadian guy with Indian blood (but never been to india!). I got denied entry into Baccara, Crazy House, and Tilac. Japanese guys were allowed entry right in front of me and an arm across my chest with a “no” head shake was the bouncer’s response when I tried to walk in. I’m a big spender so it’s their loss. I didn’t let it ruin my evening and ended up going to Nana and had no trouble getting in any of the bars. Then to the Patpong/Silom area. There’s a gogo bar, Bada Bing, loaded with Japanese guys too but I had no problems getting in. With friendly mamasans, dancers, and patrons, I spent about $300 on drinks and had a great time.

  • Willy Wonka says:

    We’re an almost-30 couple and it was out first time in Bangkok’s go-go bar scene (last month). We used this article as our guide but we almost didn’t need to. After your first go-go bar, if you’re perceptive, you’d have figured out everything all by yourself just by observing.

    Anyways, our favorite was Baccara: but it was packed full and we had to share a stool. Surprisingly, they managed to fit more girls than guests onto the stage. There were so many girls that I was genuinely scared one of them would accidentally knock another off.

    We hit many go-go bars. Suzy Wong was nice because the girls were totally naked and also had the best attitudes, but the selection wasn’t that great (like 10 girls, half of them over age 30 and a 6/10 tops in the looks department).

    Finally, we went to R&B in Nana. This is probably the best bar in Nana. The selection was great. We picked a gorgeous girl that had a smile on her face: probably aged 21 or 22 and easily a 7.5/10. She was shy at first (about interacting with us) since she hadn’t done a couple before but that didn’t deter her. (I think nearly all girls at go-go bars would be willing to service couples). She offered 3500 baht for ST. I understand that’s a bit high but we’re a couple. I countered with 2000 but she wasn’t having it. We settled on 3000. This negotiation took 30 seconds. I know I’m probably spoiling the market here (specially given the HUGE supply compared to demand) but I could tell that she could read our body language and realize that we’re new.

    Anyways, we headed back to the hotel with her after paying the bar fine of 600 baht. Three hours of steamy hot sex later, all three of us satisfied (my girlfriend went crazy on her), we laughed and joked and decided to go clubbing together (it was only 1 AM). We had a great time. The girl was super friendly and no non-sense (she even split the taxi fare and paid for her own drinks at the club we went to).

    Since we’ve been back, we just can’t wait to go BKK again. Maybe we got lucky, but everything went perfectly smoothly. The only hitch was the hotel demanding 1200 baht joiner fee (which is normally zero) since there are going to be THREE of us in the hotel room. Next time we’re gonna go Airbnb instead of a hotel, that way we can be assured of no joiner fees.

    Thanks to whoever wrote this article and all the helpful comments!

    I went to crazy house the other night, I think the girls there are beautiful but the mamasan tried to have my pay everything up front 3500 baht to get the girl back to my place for short time. I was wondering if this was common practice here because at all the other bars, I just pay the barfine and drinks then pay the girl after in the hotel.

    After my visit in December I have been back 2 times. And going again end of March. Can’t get enough of it.

    Hi Stef,
    I went to all of these places last week, with the exception of *Bacara.
    *I have been to Bacara before though, last September.
    I’m happy to report back that these recommendations are still fairly accurate.

    Crazy House is the best bar in Cowboy, hands down.Why? It’s the naughtiest. Full nude babes as far as the eye can see.
    But 2nd best in the Cowboy is Tilac, which has some of the hottest girls I have ever seen.
    The layout is spot on. And what they don;t have in naughtiness they make up for by recruiting some real stunners. It’s a comfortable place to drink and the BF was only 600 here.

    I went to NEP and first bar I went to was R&B Bar. It’s pretty good, two stage areas and the girls are all showing their boobs. There were loads of girls here. Mostly sitting with the punters.
    I don;t think that R&B Bar is the best. I would rate Spanky’s as the best bar I went to within NEP.
    I didn’t make it to JailBirdz and or Billboards but friends that went there rated these in their top three bars in NEP.

    Your site is a really fantastic resource. Detailed, informative and up to date. I have checked quite a few Thailand/nightlife related sites and forums and this one is up there with very best. I am going to be making my first trip to Bangkok soon and this has really helped me to plan my itinerary. I do have one question. It looks likely that my first trip will fall around May/June. I realise this is not a great time weatherwise, but it was suggested to me that its a good time to visit the bars as they will be less crowded. In your experience is this true? Is there much of a difference between mongering in low season and high season? Thanks!

    • Redcat says:

      Hi James, thanks for the compliment – really appreciated!

      As far as mongering during the low season goes and that the prices are cheaper; that’s just a myth. The girls have their expectations and so you can’t really say “but it’s low season now, you don’t get many guys this time so let’s do 500 short time ok?”. Just be nice to the girls, make them laugh, create some good chemistry and the “discounts” will come – no matter which season.

    Thanks for this review, it will save time and money to find the right bar. Do you know if there is bi girl at Crazy House Bangkok or other bar you mentioned. We are looking for one bi girl with my wife. We have checked some agency, but they always requested to take 2 girls.

    • Redcat says:

      Many of the girls are cool to do a couple session (no matter whether two guys or guy and girl). But you usually have to pay 2x the price like 2×2000 Baht for short time. This way I’d rather take 2 girls and make it a foursome :)

      Just go there with your wife, have a good time talk to some girls and see what they say. Some of them would be even excited to see a Farang girl naked.

    Am currently in BKK and having a blast. Baccara is nice but have to agree what was written earlier, the girls seem very bored and without any joy. Quality wise Lighthouse has been good to me so far. Barfine high though ranging from 600 to 1500. And the girls I like, well you guessed it, 1500. Nana plaza didn’t do anything for me. But worth mentioning is Beer Garden on soi 7 on the other side of the main street from nana plaza. Great relaxed bar with freelance girls (no barfine) hanging around in the bar looking for some “bom-bom”. It has a huge bar and great atmosphere. Beer price start at 85 I believe. I had a girl staying 2 hours for 1500.

    Went to Crazy House last night (29 Oct) and agree lots of pretty naked ladies walking around and dancing on the various stages.

    But do establish what you want from them before buying them a drink! I got caught a couple of times when they would say ok to long time, have an expensive drink, i.e. tequila at 330THB then “oh I’ll have to leave early”. I.e. it is suddenly a short time rather than long time. If they do this then at least cop a good feel of them.

    Spoke to the mamsan and she then checked with the girl before I bought them a drink. This saved me a couple of drinks.

    Found a great woman and we spent the night together before she finally left my hotel about 10am.

    The second floor was less crowded and a bit more casual. No continuous dancing but more moving about on the stage and being able to interact with visitors. Also many of the women were bare footed which I prefer.

      The bubble bath girls in Billboard at Nana can be quite a lot of fun especially if they take all their gear off assuming the police keep away. If Champagne is there then you might get some extra nice full on lesbian shows. She is horny little lass. I think during the past month or two the police must be cracking down on the bars around Nana because there is a lot less nudity than there was late last year.

  • Brady says:

    Stef I was there last month man, it was crazy, used your old guide, i’m glad u updated this as I will check out Rainbow on my next trip.
    Shark was crap, and Bacara is pretty lame. No boobs downstairs at these two places. Upstairs though they show boobs but no bush.
    Number 1 bar in the Cowboy is Crazy house, hands down it is the best. Naked girls on stage, more than half are starkers the entire time. Some full-on sex acts going on upstairs. Plus it’s my favourite place too. Everyone is having a good time, especially the girls. Shark and Bacara the girls weren’t having a good time at all.
    The Japanese owned the night at Crazy House, high rolling it, so swag, they played hard.

    I just got back from my holiday in Bangkok. I will agree with the gogo bars that you have listed here for Soi Cowboy and Nana Plaza. I didn’t end up going to Patpong since I was enjoying Baccara and Angelwitch to much.

  • Joe says:

    I have been to the Crazy House a few days ago – propably the youngest and most beautyfull girls in Bangkok’s go go’s.

  • OsnapMillerTime says:

    Thanks for the heads up about Nana Plaza. Would you suggest a hotel close to Soi Cowboy instead or does it matter?

    • Redcat says:

      It’s a 20 minute walk from Soi Cowboy to Nana Plaza. Keeping in mind that a lot of go go girls are more hesitant to go to hotels far away (so they can come back to the bar after quickly) just stay anywhere in the Nana or Asoke area and you’ll be fine.
