Most of Pattaya’s best-known gogo bars are located on Walking Street, but there are several other agogo bars around town and several popular gogo clubs in Soi LK Metro off Soi Buakhao, and not forgetting the first-ever gogo, and the oldest bar in Pattaya, the Tahitian Queen on Beach Road.
There is quite a diverse selection of agogo bars in Pattaya. Many of them follow a theme, including cosplay, much in keeping with their name. For example, Alcatraz gogo dancers and waitresses use role-play for their parts of prisoners and guards. The Iron Club Agogo uses a slightly S&M theme involving leather outfits and chains.
What is now The Classroom Hotel, sports bar, and music lounge was one of the first agogo clubs in Pattaya to introduce themes, uniforms, and cosplay when its girls started wearing school uniforms back in the early 1990s.
Many of Pattaya’s smaller gogo bars have only one stage, while the larger gogo bars on Walking Street have multiple stages and mirrored table dancing.
Some are best described as mundane, with bland dance routines that are often referred to as the Issan shuffle, and girls who appear not to be having that much fun. In contrast, many are interactive, entertaining, and multi-themed, and the girls at least appear to be having fun. Go-go’s featuring a Jacuzzi full of half-naked sexy Thai girls frolicking around, table dancers, and girls fooling around in shower cubicles seem to be among the most popular.
Over the years, Pattaya’s gogo bars have probably become a little tamer than they used to be, but the amazing acts a gogo dancer can perform with her “man trap”, such as firing darts, smoking cigarettes, shelling eggs and hiding live eels never fail to find an appreciative crowd in the more risque Pattaya gogo bars.
Pattaya Go-Go Videos
One rule strictly enforced by Pattaya Go-Go bars is the restriction of photography and videography by customers. That’s not to say you won’t find any decent footage, though. The owners post their own footage on Youtube quite regularly. So if you want to know what it’s like, what happens inside a Pattaya Go-Go bar, how sexy the girls are, and get a feel for the atmosphere, just take a look at this playlist of Pattaya agogo videos on Annabels Agogo Bar Youtube channel.
Prices of Drinks and Girls at Go-Go Bars in Pattaya
Go-go clubs are not the cheapest places to drink in Pattaya. Both local and imported beers might cost 50 to 100 percent more than at most beer bars, most do have special offers and happy hour prices, but that often only applies to certain drinks – usually local draft beers.
Bar fines, lady drinks, and the cost of girls at Pattaya go-go clubs are also considerably more expensive than at beer bars and other girly bars. Go-go dancers, naturally, are usually very attractive, better paid than girls at beer bars, and so can afford to be choosy.
What Time Do Pattayta Gogo Bars Open and Close
Most go-go bars on Walking Street open in the early evening, between 6 PM and 8 PM, and close in the early hours of the morning, between 1 AM and 4 AM. Others open early, around mid-day, and often have happy hours during the afternoon.
Dress Code & Minimum Allowed Age to Enter Gogo Bars in Pattaya
The minimum legal age allowed to consume alcohol in Thailand is 20, which, due to the nature of entertainment at agogo bars—is more likely to be enforced than at other drinking establishments. Unless you appear young for your age, there’s little chance you will be asked for any proof of age.
Dress code: so long as you are more moderately dressed than the girls on stage, up to you. Shorts and a T-shirt are fine.
