What is the cost of a bar girl in Pattaya ?: The price depends on the bar fine, the type of bar, how good looking the girl is, what she thinks she can charge you, and a few other variables. All of which will be covered in this post. One thing you must remember, dealing with Pattaya bar girls, whether it’s for short time, long time or a “bar girl for hire” is very rarely a cold, “one off” business transaction.
Pattaya is a fun town, and by and large it’s bar girls are fun girls. The whole process of meeting and paying for bar girls is a somewhat ritualistic but fun process, which often starts just minutes after you enter a bar, this post will outline what you can expect to pay for, and roughly how much you should be paying.
Cost of Lady Drinks in Pattaya
Drinks bought for female bar staff are formally known as “lady drinks”. After a bar girl’s introductory lines of “what’s your name” and “where do you come from”, you might make some idle chit chat or play Connect 4. After this formal ice breaking ceremony you might ask the girl if she wants a drink.
Standard prices for lady drinks are between around 80 and 150 baht in beer bars, but could be 2 to 3 times more in Go-Go bars. The girl receives a commission for each drink bought for her, and many bars expect the girl to reach a quota of sales for the month.
Cost of a Bar fine in Pattaya
What is a bar-fine ?, the bar-fine is a fee which you pay to the bar to compensate the bar for the temporary loss of it’s employee. Bar-fines are usually per day but it’s not uncommon for some bars, especially Go-Go bars to have a long time (full day rate) and a short time rate (usually 1 – 2 hours).
If you meet a girl you like and wish to have her keep you company you must pay the bar-fine for every day that she does not work in the bar. Bar-fines at beer bar complexes and shop-house style bars are generally around 300 to 600 baht.
Bar-fines at Pattaya Go-Go and Coyote bars are considerably more expensive. Short time bar fines at GoGo bars might cost you anything between 600 and 1000 baht. Full day bar fines at Pattaya Go-Go’s are largely dependent on the area. A full day bar fine at most Go-Go’s in Walking Street is likely to cost a minimum 1,500 to 2000 baht.
Paying The Girl
If you want a girl to stay in your room until morning (long time) you are very lucky, or a very good negotiator if you can do a deal for 1000 baht. The reality is there is no set rate, a bar girl will negotiate the highest price she can, especially if she knows you’re a first timer in Thailand.
In reality the price is more commonly around 2000 baht. For a Go-Go girl you can add at least another 1000 baht. Negotiating the price: Some bar girls are upfront, they will immediately state their opening price. Others hedge their bets by replying “up to you”. If you offer an unsatisfactory price she will most likely reply with a look of disinterest, or ask you to try again.
Short Time Fee
Many bars in Pattaya, known as “short time bars” have rooms available for “short time activities”, the room cost for 1 hour is about 300 baht. The cost for the girl is anywhere between 500 and 1,500 baht.
Hotel Joiner Fee
Joiner fees are something which must not be overlooked if you intend taking bar girls back to your room overnight. The majority of hotels in Pattaya are bar girl friendly (aka guest/joiner friendly) but making the wrong choice of hotel could mean you are paying a joiner fee of 300 to 1,500 baht per night.
You can avoid paying joiner fees by booking one of these bar girl/guest friendly hotels in Pattaya.
The Sob Story
Some of us are more susceptible to sob stories than others. Bar girls are better judges of character than most, and some are very good at bending a sympathetic ear. If you are susceptible, and you have a sympathetic ear, you may well find yourself contributing to her mothers sick buffalo fund, or buying next terms school books for her daughter.
Most people tip a couple of hundred baht, not an obligation by any means. Some girls are very upfront about asking for a tip after you pay them.
The Pattaya Bar Girl For Hire
A lot of single men arrive in Pattaya before touring other parts of Thailand. They spend a couple of days frequenting bars and Go-Go clubs hoping to find a girl who is essentially going to be their girlfriend and guide for the duration of their tour, or for the entirety of their stay in Thailand.
The obvious advantage of this is they have a lover, a travel companion, a guide and a translator all in one package.
Of course, you have to pay everything, hotels, transport, bar fine for the duration of your trip, plus whatever you agree to pay her every day. When you consider everything though that’s not a bad deal.
The Thai girl/bar girl for hire concept has been built in to a very successful Thai dating site which allows its users to attract requests from, or to invite other users to be their travel companions for their vacation in Thailand.
The Taxi Fare
Have you ever seen the old T.V series “Columbo” starring Peter Falk, his catchphrase was “just one more thing”. The departing bar girls catchphrase is “can I have money for taxi”, so you give her another 100 baht, and at that, you may or may not see her again.
Leaving Your Wallet Unattended
Temptation and the love of money might not be the roots of all evil, but an unattended wallet is often too tempting. Only leave what you are prepared to lose in your wallet, leave your valuables, cash and cards in a safe, or hide them.
Most high street clinics in Pattaya are capable of treating sexually transmitted diseases, and at reasonable rates. Paying for treatment of sexually transmitted diseases is not a mandatory inclusion of a night out in Pattaya, but it can easily be avoided by WEARING A CONDOM.
