What’s the best gogo bar in Bangkok?
There are a lot of gogo bars in Bangkok, but only a handful of good ones.
So if you want to save money and time from figuring out by yourself where to go, follow the guide.
Note this is not a ranking. We just sorted them by area. But they’re all worth paying them a visit.
Spanky’s (Nana Plaza)
Now that Bangkok Bunnies is gone, Spanky’s is probably the most interesting gogo bar in Nana Plaza.
It has no shortage of hot girls, good music, and a few special events here and there.
When you get to Nana Plaza, head directly to the 2nd floor to get spanked.
Billboard Bangkok (Nana Plaza)
For this one, you need to go up to the top floor of Nana Plaza.
Billboard has been consistently reviewed as one of Bangkok’s most popular gogo bar since it opened in 2011.
It’s a big bar that can have up to 150 hot Thai girls on big nights.
The music is ok, they always have good deals, and they even have a giant jacuzzi for sexy shows.
Baccara (Soi Cowboy)
Baccara is the most famous gogo bar in Soi Cowboy and Bangkok.
It also one of the few where you need to buy a drink at the entrance to be allowed in.
But once you’re inside, you can explore their 3 floors filled with hot Thai girls dancing with bikinis on, topless, or completely naked, depending on which floor you pick.
Baccara is always busy, so don’t go there too late if you want a place to sit or see hot babes. If you get there late, all the most beautiful girls might already be gone.
Crazy House (Soi Cowboy)
This gogo bar really deserves its name.
Crazy house is a 3 floor madhouse filled with half-naked and completely naked girls.
Unlike Baccara, not all the girls at Crazy House are fit or young. And the bar is small and often crowded.
But it’s wild inside. If you don’t mind standing or fight for a seat to watch naked Thai girls standing on stage, you will definitely love it.
Suzie Wong (Soi Cowboy)
Suzie Wong is a great gogo bar and the only “clean” place in Bangkok to watch a ping pong show.
Their selection of girls is pretty good, the place is safe, and the drinks are reasonably priced.
Another landmark of Bangkok.
Bada Bing (Patpong)
The jewel of Patpong.
Soi Patpong used to be the main street to party in Bangkok. Now, it’s only the shadow of what it used to be.
But there’s one bar that is still popular and always has beautiful girls despite the lack of tourists; it’s Bada Bing.
They renovated the club a few years ago, and now the selection of girls is better than ever.
With the same vibe as Bada Bing, Glamour is another interesting gogo bar in Patpong.
It’s pretty small, doesn’t have a ton of girls, nor the hottest girls in Bangkok, to be honest. But because it’s a smaller bar, there’s less pressure to buy drinks, and the girls are more friendly.
If you want to meet nice girls or have a discussion with a friend with a drink in one hand and a set of b… in the other, Glamour is the place to go.
Go give them a try, and let us know what you think. But those gogo bars always have a strong selection of sexy Thai girls. Not doubt you will love them.
Now, if you’re not sure what’s a gogo bar or if it’s the right place for you, let us answer a few common questions.
What is a gogo bar?
Gogo bars are the closest thing to strip clubs you can find in Thailand.
A gogo bar is a bar with sexy girls “dancing” by a pole.
They can be wearing a bikini, lingerie, be topless, or in some gogo bars, be completely naked.
And all the girls have a number on them. You use that number to tell the waitress or mamasan which girl you want to invite at your table or take home.
What happens in a gogo bar?
You drink, you watch the girls, and more if you want to.
At the core, it’s a bar with girls dancing. Gogo bars are like other bars, but instead of watching TV and sports, you watch girls “dancing” with few clothes.
If there’s a girl you like, you can buy her a drink called “Lady Drink.” It’s often a shot of tequila these days, and in exchange, she will come to spend some time at your table.
Then when she’s done with her drink, either you buy her another one if you want her to stay, or she goes back on stage.
Now, gogo bars are also places to find girls to fuck. You can “bar fine” girls there.
In other words, you pay a fee to the bar to take the girl with you, either for a “short time,” a few hours, or “long time,” which means for the night.
The price for a bar fine can range from 1,000 to 5,000 or even 10,000 THB in some bars. Or for some girls.
Every gogo bars have different prices for different girls. The more attractive they are, the more expensive they’re going to be.
The “cheapest” ones are usually called “PR” or “Coyote”, and the most expensive ones are called “models.”
What’s better between a gogo bar and a gentlemen club?
Both are fun and both are great places to party with Thai girls.
But gentlemen clubs, even though they’re slightly more expensive, are way better.
The girls there are hotter (look at The PIMP Bangkok for example), and they perform shows, as opposed to most gogo girls who just stand there on the stage.
Gentlemen clubs also have real entertainment, live music, and DJs.
But the main reason to go to a gentlemen club, on top of partying with the hottest girls in Thailand, it’s the privacy you can get in private rooms.
If you want a wild party with gorgeous Thai girls and don’t want anybody watching, what you need is a private room in a gentlemen club.
If that was enough to convince you to give it a try, now you’re probably wondering, “What are good gogo bars in Bangkok?”
