Bangkok’s Go-Go Bars have earned worldwide notoriety thanks to the easy-going but adults-only entertainment that takes place. Go-Go bars typically follow a similar style, usually centred on taking a seat facing the central stage. Sometimes there are as many as 40 dancers up there, while others sit and have a chat and a drink with the customers.
Go-Go bars are found in three main areas of the city: Soi Cowboy in Asok, Nana Plaza, and Soi Patpong in Silom. You will find that the trademark flashing neon signs and staff trying to entice you inside each bar is consistent in every area, although there are subtle differences between each location, which are explained in detail below.
