Gogo bars in Chiang Mai
Gogo bars in Chiang Mai
Free Guy currently (Oct 2014) closed for renovation, Adam’s
Apple, Circle Pub and New My Way open.
For location see gay magazines, the bar’s websites or here:
Generalizations: starts late, at 9 pm you can be the first
customer. Shows have a ration of two acts with boys with hard cock and one act
with a singing girl (simplified). All bars had a few boys who are cute by my
standards. Bar are non-smoking.
Generalization for gogo bars all over Thailand: breaks
between acts of the shows are too long. Acts of the show are performed by
different actors, there is no reason to let your customers wait in
semi-darkness with nothing to look at. Is it poor management or deliberate?
It’s a waste of my precious time.
(After over a year of shunning show, for this and other
reasons, I sat through a few recently in Pattaya, Bangkok and Chiang Mai.)
Adam’s Apple, arrive 22:00. Pineapple juice 260 Baht,
off fee 300 Baht, short time 1000 up (information from staff). Popcorn is
served for free, with fill up when empty. Most boys in white briefs or trunks,
mostly poorly fitting. No white light in the bar (I like brown skin, but with
colored light their complexion all look the same totally unattractive to me).
Aircon ok, music ranging from ok to too loud.
22:10 show starts, all boys on stage, rotation ok. 22:40
break in show, 16 boys on stage. 23:07 break in show, 23:45 break in show and
13 boys on stage. Show consists of two acts with boys with hard dicks (most of
them rubber band at base, total turn off for me, but one boy without) and one
act with girl singing. The boys do interesting acrobatics. The bar uses a fog
machine during some parts of the show, which I dislike (smell, I want to see
the boys and not fog).
Smoking room seems to be a socializing hotspot for boys and
customers, good light and low music level.
The only gogo bar in Chiang Mai I consider going again and
offing a boy.
Circle Pub, arrive 21:35. Nobody on stage, but staff
assures me there would be boys for the show, and I spotted a shirtless boy when
I entered the bar. Orange juice 240 Baht, pay immediately. Off fee 300, short
time 1500 up (information from staff). I am the first customers, but the best
tables near stage are reserved. A few other customers come before show starts,
and everyone (customers and staff) plays on their mobile phones.
22:10 show starts. Girl singing and 3 fully clothed boys
dancing. 22:15-20 parade of boys, fully clothed (!!!) at the start, shirtless
at the end. No underwear in sight, not even a waistband. Nudity and hard cock
during the show (two acts with boys with hard cocks, one act with singing
girl). 23:05 parade of boys, show ends. 23:45 second show starts, now about 20
customers in bar.
The customer sitting next to me chats me up. He is not my
type, but the cute boy next to him (who he claims is his husband) is. But I can’t
remember if the boy is from the bar or if he brought him in. (There was a
similar situation in Saranrom, where a tranny claimed the cute boy she just
picked up is her boyfriend.) After some chat and groping (he groping me and
his “husband”), and vigorous thinking if there is any gain for me (free sex
with the cute boy in the course of a threesome, blogging material), I decide it’s
better to leave.
Not at all my style, but obviously appeals to locals (or
they haven’t been to Pattaya and don’t know better). Won’t be back soon.
New My Way, arrive 21:40. I am the first customer.
Orange Juice 240 Baht. No boys on stage, they project TV programme and there is
disco music. After taking my order and serving, staff leaves me alone.
Schedule: open 9 pm, show 22:15 to midnight, close 1 am.
Reality: 22:25 show starts with a parade of 14 boys. 23:05 parade of 16 boys; 7
customers me included. In breaks during show, they show soft porn. That is
really taking the piss of customers: charging 240 Baht for orange juice and
showing soft porn in breaks.
Same as Circle Pub: Not at all my style, but obviously
appeals to locals (or they haven’t been to Pattaya and don’t know better).
Won’t be back soon.
Verdict: gogo bars in Chiang Mai have a completely
different style than Bangkok and Pattaya, and my needs are much better served
in Pattaya, and at a lower drink price.
