Bada Bing Go-Go Bar in Bangkok
Biggest and Best Bar in Patpong0
Bada Bing is a fun-loving and friendly bar on Patpong Soi 2 where every night over 25 girls dance provocatively on stage dressed in sexy denim micro-shorts, army uniforms, nurses outfits and many other fantasy costumes that wouldn’t keep you warm, but certainly make the customers heat up. Often considered the best gogo bar in Bangkok, the design is modern, the service prompt, and best of all, Bada Bing is one of the only bars in the Patpong area where you can totally relax and enjoy yourself. With free entry every night of the week, you've got to ask yourself 'why haven't you seen this place with your own eyes?'
Patpong is a fairly short but notorious street that connects Surawong Road and Silom Road (the main business district in the city). It is an exciting part of the city and attracts many different types of people who come for two main reasons – counterfeit goods from the night market and beautiful dancers in the many go-go bars.
Known as the biggest go-go bar in the area, Bada Bing is set over two floors with a larger downstairs stage, a smaller - but more riotous - VIP room on the second floor, and a glass ceiling in between. It has a simple plan to keep the customers coming back: drinks prices are reasonable (140 baht for a beer), girls are numerous, of many shapes and sizes and are ready and willing to have a drink with you but only when you ask them. Bada Bing Go-Go is one of the most modern bars on the strip, and they have gathered a large group of regular customers – mostly expats – who keep coming back because of the fair treatment they receive and the easygoing nature of the dancers and staff.
There are two types of dancers – coyotes and go-go girls. They take it in turns to dance on stage, swapping roughly every 20 minutes. The only real differences are their costumes and the style of dance. Coyote girls are employed for their dancing skills and beauty, whereas go-go girls have ‘additional responsibilities’. Of course, at Bada Bing the customer is still king and should you want to have a drink with any of the ladies then I’m sure it would happen (but after they have finished their dance routine). Any arrangements you wish to make with them is done on a ‘quid pro quo’ basis.
The layout of the bar is typical of go-go bars but very well executed, with cushioned sofas running along the walls and single-seaters scattered around. This makes Bada Bing comfortable for singles or groups, and if guests arrive with a larger group, a good idea would be to head upstairs where the bar will accommodate you in privacy. If you are planning a big birthday bash, corporate or stag party, it is best to call ahead as the management can help to arrange an unforgettable night.
Alternatively, you should ask to speak to Julien, the manager of Bada Bing, who is always on hand to take care of guests and help plan something special.
The bar is busiest from 22:00 until 03:00 although the official closing time is not set and depends very much on the circumstances. On Sunday and Monday nights Bada Bing have special shows to entice their regulars out for another night of indulgence. These special nights usually take on some kind of theme, such as burlesque nights or doctors and nurses; anything that has a fun element that isn’t taken too seriously.
Located on Patpong Soi 2, Bada Bing is easy to find about 15 metres down the soi from Silom Road, on a corner position with a small alley connecting to Patpong Soi 1. Let the bright red Bada Bing sign be your guide. Sala Daeng BTS Skytrain Station is very close to the bar.
