Soi LK Metro
Gogo Bar ground zero in central Pattaya.
Okay, this one is definitely a place that every red-blooded male should visit. The venue is not nearly as big as Walking Street (the other big gogo bar option) but it gets a lot more of the serious customers that the bars need. At present, you won’t see the Chinese hordes wandering through with empty pockets and cameras firing off in all directions, this place is for getting drunk and meeting girls.
There are beer bars mixed in with gogo bars, and they are good beer bars too. If you want to watch live sports or listen to live music then there are several options.
The Bilabong bar is the busiest and most successful of the beer bars for two reasons, a) it is located in the best position and b) it is well managed. Position wise LK Metro is ‘L’ shaped, and the Bilabong sits on the inside corner of that L which gives it a natural feel of centrality.
With regard to bar management, the guys at the Bilabong know what they are doing. There are tables and chairs outside the bar without any obstructing motorcycles, and the pricing system operates on a buy on get one free basis (which is really a pay twice as much for the first and your next one is free). It serves to keep customers in the bar longer which keeps it busy and attracts more customers and so on...
The Bilabong is not the only good beer bar, most of them are well run here. The Kilkenny, the Climax Bar, the Scooters bar, the I-Rovers Bar and others are all good and highly recommended.
Meeting the sexiest Thai ladies for fun times is getting easier and easier to do via the online dating sites. A lot of girls like the extra discretion that is offered on:

It’s impossible to nail down which are the best gogo bars because
that all depends on which of them have the best looking girls working, and that
will be different every time you walk into any given one of them.
Gogo girls seem to come and go – at least the better looking ones do...
What I can reliably state is that the best gogo bars in the central
Pattaya nightlife area are all found here.
The standard advice for
getting a beauty is to either go early so that you are first in line,
or go late by which time many of them will have returned to their bars
after having entertained some (or several guys) already. I can guess how
most readers will feel about that...
Given the impossibility of
predicting which gogo will be best on the night, my advice is to pop
your head behind the curtains of a selection of them, and pick your favourite. The Champagne A
Go Go is the most well established and is usually worth a look, but
Sugar Sugar, The Office, Showgirls, and Lady Love have all been my
favourites at various times... and there are still others that I haven’t
mentioned but that other long-term visitors prefer.
of LK Metro is complete without a few words on the Devils Den bar. This
place has a completely different business model and I wonder if the
authorities will tolerate the place much longer. The Devils Den
caters for guys that want to enjoy the company of two or more ladies at a
When you walk into the Devils Den the girls will be called
and they’ll line up on either side of a line drawn on the floor. Which
side of the line a girl stands on indicates which particular services
she will provide – and all of them provide the regular adult stuff!
you choose to engage in the fun stuff then you’ll be whisked away
upstairs to a room that has various toys inside. You’ll shower with the
girls and well, you’ll have to visit the place if you want to know more.
