Coup d’état in Bangkok, For Naughty Boys

Coup d'état in Bangkok, An Update For Naughty Boys

I have been asked to provide an update with information for naughty boys about which bars are open at this time.

The first and most relevant point is that bars and establishments which are usually open during the day time should be business as usual. It is venues that don't open until after sundown which are expected to be affected and many likely will not open at all. However, some bars are making an effort to be open from early or mid-afternoon until mid-evening and as I become aware of which bars are open I will update this page.

The good news is that for those who came for a bar holiday, just head to your favourite bar area before 9 PM and you will find places open.

Nana Plaza / Soi Nana

In Soi Nana, all street bars / beer bars are open as normal during daylight hours. It is expected they will close some time around 9:00 PM or a little later. So, for example, Stumble Inn and Lucky Luke's are open from 9 AM – 8:30 PM.

In Nana Plaza itself, Temptation, Mercury and Playskool gogo bars will all be open from 2:00 PM – 8:30 PM.

Spanky's will open at 4:00 PM.

Some gogo bars in the Nana Group will open from 3:00 PM – 9:00 PM.

Most of the ground floor beer bars will be open from 1:00 PM – 9:00 PM.


Soi Cowboy

In Soi Cowboy, Dollhouse Gogo Bar will open from 2:30 – 9:00 PM.

Cockatoo Ladyboy Gogo bar will open from 2:00 PM – 8:30 PM.


In Patpong soi 2, Club Electric Blue will be open from 3 PM – 9 PM.

The Strip will open at the following times:

Friday and Saturday: 4 PM – 10 PM

Sunday through to Thursday: 4 PM – 11 PM

And when The Strip closes customers can head over to Black Pagoda which will have a lock-in from:

Friday and Saturday: 10 PM – 4 AM

Sunday to Thursday: 11 PM – 4 AM

(and you can slum it there too because technically you should not be outside after 10 PM)

If you are in Bangkok and don't fancy going out, you can order delivery with's escorts available as usual.


Down in Pattaya, I'd expect many beer bars will be open during the day although I have not had any word from bar owners

Secrets will be open from 1 PM with plenty of hostesses and dancing girls.

In the thriving soi 15 off Walking Street, Babydolls will open from 3:00 PM until 9:30 PM. It is expected a number of other gogo bars in the same soi may open similar hours.

Sugarbaby on Walking Street opens at midday.
