The concept of Go Go Bars in Soi Bangla varies a little in each place, but basically always rotates around few common features, so what really happens in there?
A center elevated stage or two, surrounded by stools and accessorized with few stainless poles. Sofas and small tables are lined up around the room, sometimes on two levels and loud music will be played with flashing colorful lights. Few girls permanently dance in a minimalist attire with more or less conviction depending how late it is and how popular the place is. It usually is pretty quiet before 10pm but later the place will warm up a little as customers start to flow in and in most places show will start.
Touts are not working for bars! Never follow a tout in the street with his little card of whatever he says you will see in the show! It’s often no real and you will be charged extra, just walk away! The bars are easy to find (they are actually difficult to miss!)
Every now and then, the girls will leave the stage and an elder lady will come up, usually carrying interesting accessories in order to perform all kinds of tricks that will make your jaw drop.
The list is extensive but, except maybe at ‘Money Night A Go Go’ which also includes a snake show, you will never see all what has been advertised at once, and even at Money Night, the shows and the prices vary so much I can’t really recommend it.
The show can be more or less well executed depending how experienced is the girl but you are in for a serious surprise (well, let’s call them ‘ladies’ since they are usually way past their prime). Suzy Wong’s, Devil’s Playground, Rock Hard A Go Go are more relying on sexy girls putting on a very sensual show. Don’t try (most of) this at home!
