Joy Bar

Joy Bar

One of the newer bars on Cowboy Street. It's rather small and with fresh decor. There is a mix of coyotee dancers and regular staff on duty. Joy bar tends to open a little bit later and stays open as long as staffing and demand permit. Lately, after new protests erupted, bars have become rather slow in 2014. It's an older photo and looks of their exteriour might have changed a little bit. Patrons can always take a peek and decide whether to stay or not.

Kiss

Kiss
When I first walked into Kiss bar around 2009 it was a lot tamer than other bars on Soi Cowboy. Agogo girls were dancing in bikinis and hotpants. It was very dark and there were two stages. These days more light has found it's way into this watering hole with dancers and coyotee girls who solicit for lady drinks. It's rather relaxed and not as seedy as before. Check it out and find your own review and comment here, please.

Shebas

Shebas
In the meantime Shebas bar has been closed and re-opened under a different name (middle 2013). Administrator will be posting an update on new business soon. Shebas was built with a central, elevated stage where shows and dances were conducted. Spectator and customer ranks were rising from middle to back to provide theater like feeling for their sexy dancers who would engage in gogo dancing and choreographic performances while being lime lighted and spotted.

Rawhide Show Bar

Rawhide Show Bar
When entering Soi Cowboy from Asoke Road and public transport like MRT or BTS, Rawhide bar is one of the first venues on the right side. You don't even need to use a map to find this establishment. It's opposite of Dejavu Bangkok coyotee dance pub. Rawhide is known for it's shows at late hours. Their music is mostly hardrock from what I remember, what is a nice change to plastic beats of new coyotee dance pubs.

Daytime Photos

Cowboy 2
Long perspective of Soi Cowboy up to Cowboy 2 bar
During daytime everything is calm and romantically innocent. Bars are closed and deliveries take place. It's like that until 16h when bargirls from neighbouring dormitories start to wake up. They flock out to the streets for late lunch and first bars open their outdoor areas for daytime drinkers and lost tourists.

However, the flood was averted and Soi Cowboy remained dry for the time being.

Youtube Videos

Every bar on Soi Cowboy has the same big sign on their entrance door: no video and no photo taking allowed. Their staff is advices to ask customers not to use their mobile phones at any time. Why? It's probably better not to ask. People in red-light districts from various countries don't seem to like publicity on one side, but live off of it in another way. However, a lot of private investigators keep filming their visits in Soi Cowboy bars and many clips find their way to Youtube, the World's largest video sharing platform.

Baccara

Baccara
One of the most popular bars with 2 levels and glass floor in between for bottom watching
Possibly the most expensive showgirl bar on Soi Cowboy. Baccara packs 2 floors of dancers. Lower floor with bikini girls and upper floor with shool-girl dressed Thai ladies, bottomless. Both floors are separated by a large glass floor. Customers seated on the lower flower experience stiff necks. Upper floor girls love to ask for more expensive ladydrinks such as Tequila shots. Barfines are available, but customers are required to pay at least 2 ladydrinks on top of barfine. Regular drinks like beer and water are about twice as expensive than in Tilac bar, but Baccara is packed full with bargirls and customers every night. Very loud music.

Sexy Thai Doorgirl

Sexy Thai Doorgirl
Each bar on the strip has them: sexy Thai doorgirls. They are the ones to get customers into bars. Once a customer vanishes inside a joint on Soi Cowboy he is most likely going to stay there for at least one or two drinks. It's the same in many other Asian RLD's, doorgirls are by far more attractive than actual dancers and employees inside the establishments. That's part of nightlife and it's impossible to complain about it. But: you can always ask a doorgirl to join inside the bar and buy her a drink if you wish to do so. This way, you can enjoy company of the bar's most attractive girl. Have fun!

Midnite Bar

Midnite Bar on Soi Cowboy
This bar is one of the oldest establishments on Soi Cowboy. It has survived over 20 years of nightlife. Mnay other bars have changed names, but Midnite Bar still is the same. Late at night it hosts erotic shows mixed with regular agogo and tight coyotee dancers. There is a small party area upstairs that can be used by small groups of customers for individual shows and events. Overall a pretty neat place. It was reported, girls may only go on barfine after two ladydrinks from the customer who pays the barfine. You gotta love their way of increasing prices by the backdoor.

Spice Girls

Spice Girls

It's one of those bars on Soi Cowboy giving you what you want: Thai teen eye candy. Very sexy 19 and 20 year old coyotee dancers that perform in hotpants and tight tops. You can buy them drinks between their shifts and put some bills inside their bra for a tip if you are in a spending mood. They won't go with you on barfine! Coyotee dancers don't accept barfines. They receive a higher salary than regular dancers. Maybe some charming guy can sweet-talk his way into getting their phone numbers, but that's about as far as it goes.
