That’s fine if they want to do that I don’t care, but then don’t charge me 135 baht for a water. What am I paying for?
Bill scams – If you ever go to Soi Cowboy or Nana Plaza with a big group and you will be buying a lot of drinks, watch what you order and keep an eye on your bill.
If there are 6-7 of you going in, the mamasan will add on drinks and other charges to inflate your bill if you’re not keeping a close eye on things.
Girls are not hot – While this is totally subjective, I would say around 10-15% of all the girls that work in Soi Cowboy or Nana Plaza are hot.
I’m not sure who is in charge of the hiring process of girls but you need to fire that guy and hire me. You can easily get yourself a Thai girlfriend who is much hotter than them.
The only go go I like is Baccara
And even that sucks.
Baccara go go in Soi Cowboy has the hottest girls by far but most of them are stuck up and only interested in Japanese or Korena dudes.
There is some guy on the door and he usually rejects people if there are too many brown or black people in a group. One time I went and the entire group was of English males who were Indian or black and the guy on the door said it was private member’s night only.
I know there is no member’s night and I said I was a member and he still rejected me. After talking to him he said they don’t allow too many people in a group of color.
I’ve been here many times and the attitude of the girls usually suck. Most look bored or like they are waiting for the night to end. They do have two floors though which is packed full of hot girls every night, so if you do only visit one go go, make sure it’s Baccara on Soi Cowboy.
The bottom line
While all go go bars in Soi Cowboy and Nana Plaza are not like what I mentioned above, most are and it totally ruins the experience of going there.
I never feel like a customer when I go in, rather a target and the mamasan’s job is to take as much money from me – any means necessary.
If budget is not a problem and you don’t mind getting annoyed by the mamasans, or are looking to get a girl for the night who is clean and safe, then it’s a decent spot to go.But as a pre-drink or relaxing night out, not even once. Check out Route 66, Funky Villa, Onyx, or Levels for that.
