Prices in Bangkok gogo bars

Prices in Bangkok gogo bars
 
I was in Soi Twilight last night (Wed 19.03.2014 about 00:30) and saw a sign "drink 330 Baht" in front of Dream Boy. That raised hope that prices return to a normal level, but upon asking I found that 330 is for downstairs, upstairs it's still 380 Baht. Nonetheless, I asked in some other places (haven't been in a Bangkok gogo for a while and don't plan to go again soon, too expensive!)

(Bar name, drink price (non-alcoholic in my case), off fee, recommended/expected short time tip, show times, based on asking one member of staff outside the bar; underwear style from memory)

Hotmale 320 (update 18.01.2015: 350)
(custom-made trunks, white and light blue, horizontal zipper in front, come off after 10:30) 

Dream Boys 330 (ground floor) 380 (upstairs) 650 (negotiate between customer and boy)

X-Size 300 600 1500 (but see their occasional promotion 200 Baht drink 300 Baht off-fee: http://gaybuttonthai.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=5741&start=0) (individual underwear)

Update Nov2016: closed for good mid-2016

I would be grateful for my readers to help fill the gaps, and will venture out again soon.

*I have known the doorman/waiter at Classic for a while, he is clever. Last year, I bought him a few beers and had some chats, until I found that his interest in me is entirely for buying him beer. Now I keep conversation to a minimum. When I asked him, I got these smart-ass answers: drink price depends on who and how many people, why do you ask, come in to find out!

  3. You are right. I mean Nature Boy, not Night Boy (closed about 2 years ago). Just changed it in the post. (And the bar in Pattaya is called Nice Boys.)

  11. Could someone educate me on the procedure on entering one of these venues, paying the entrance fee, having to buy a boy you like a drink, having to pay the manager to go off with the boy, having to pay the boy who stays the whole night. I seriously have no idea what kind of rates we are looking at. Not sure if i have the guts to go that far but knowing what to expect will help ease my anxiety. Cheers

    1. In short: drink for you + drink for boy + off fee + short time tip for boy in Bangkok Soi Twilight 350 + 350 + 500 + 1500 = 2700; in Pattaya Boyztown 200 + 200 + 400 + 1000 = 1800. Estimates, averages. For details read the gay Thailand forums.

  13. If i just want to go in and watch the shows, do i just need to pay for my own drink?

    1. You pay only for your own drink. Don't let mamasan talk you into buying drinks for her and for boys. Unless you want to have a boy sit with you for chat and touching, then it would be rude not to buy him a drink.
