5 Best Go-Go Bars in Pattaya
Wild Parties on Pattaya Walking Street
Anyone who has ever been to Pattaya will know about Walking Street: around 500 metres of bar after bar of dancing girls, swinging round poles and gyrating to music dressed in skimpy lingerie, themed costume, or sometimes in nothing but their birthday suit. Even outside the bars, groups of girls wave and call at all passersby, “Hey sexy man, where you go?” while dressed in a Japanese school uniform or dominatrix outfit. Things get going from around 20:00 until late into the night and the street is a constant throng of tourists, some of whom are there to look, and some to play.
Go-Go bars come in many shapes and sizes, but the typical elements include a bar, a central stage with several poles, and lots of seating facing the stage. Girls will dance provocatively on stage to club music, replaced every few minutes by even more girls. In between dancing these girls will mingle with the crowd flirting outrageously and trying to find company… and a free drink. If you happen to like the company of your chosen girl then there are usually ‘additional arrangements’ that can be made. With so much choice in Pattaya, it’s hard to know where to start. Fortunately, we have done the research for you and have compiled five hot bars you definitely wouldn’t want to miss:
What's Up A-Go-Go
With an ultra modern white interior and some of the hottest girls on the whole strip, What’s Up Go-Go Club is usually packed with customers who don’t mind paying a little more for their drinks and ‘extra’ services. Noticeable elements about What’s Up is how fit and athletic all the girls look with toned, lithe bodies and how friendly and smiling all the staff seem to be. The club has seating around the periphery, banks of stools around two dancing stages and around a Jacuzzi bathtub towards the rear of the club. The majority of the dancers wear bikinis in What’s Up, but they have exotic shows every 30 minutes when far more gets revealed.

The entrance to Baccara Pattaya is fairly enticing with two girls dancing provocatively around poles, but the action really heats up once you step through the curtain as each of the dancers has red and black lace wrapped around their leg right up to their knickers… or not. The club is famous for its glass ceiling and customers can look directly up at what’s up there on the second floor. The girls are a mixture of slim and curvy, but they definitely have a selective policy to keep guests happy. Baccara Go-Go is among the most popular on Walking Street with happy hour draft beers and plenty of seating with clear views of the stage.

Not the ideal place if you’ve just got out from a ten-stretch in Belmarsh, Alcatraz is a go-go bar with a prison theme where scantily clad girls play either prisoners or guards, and there are plenty to choose from. Alcatraz Pattaya is perhaps the biggest go-go bar on all of Walking Street and extra girls are brought from partner bars in Bangkok during high season and holidays. Expect lots of faux-prison cells and handcuffs as the girls are playing the role of convict, inmate, cop or warden. There are special deals on draft beer from 20:00-22:00 and a lounge upstairs which can be booked for parties, stag nights and the like.
- Location: Between Soi 13 and 14 on Walking Street
Airport Club has turned its snake-like dimensions to its own advantage by sticking airplane-type windows to the walls and dressing the girls up as air hostesses and flight crew to fulfill many a man’s fantasy on a long-haul flight. Much like a real airplane, this club has packed in as much as humanly possible into their available space and as such it can become quite a squeeze, even uncomfortable if you sit around the central stage near the door. There is far more space back towards the bar, around the Jacuzzi bath. Airport A-Go-Go doesn’t have as many shows as other bars on the strip, but it has a lot of girls dancing up on stage who will be quite happy to come and have a drink with you if you buy them one too. The bar also has happy hour prices on draft beers until 22:00.

Iron Club is one of the most raucous and crazy go-go bars in Pattaya, with some S&M themed shows, and bits of black leather and iron chains (hence the name). The design of the club is quite special with girls dancing on suspended stages towards the rear of the club. There are two main dance stages: one with bikinis, and one without, and a Jacuzzi bath with several girls and bucket loads of soap suds. The girls are notoriously sexy in Iron Club and have a price to match. There are better bars for warming up with a few beers as the girls in here are quite thirsty and often ask for a drink, but if you’re looking for real action then Iron Club on Walking Street is a good shout.
