  • 10 Best Ladyboy Bars in Pattaya

    The most popular Pattaya ladyboys bars

    Pattaya is very well known for its large transgender community, or ‘ladyboys’ as the world has come to know them. Aside from the family-friendly cabaret shows, there is an impressive amount of more strictly adult-themed beer bars and go-gos dedicated to women who used to be (or, in some cases, still are) men. The range of venues is as diverse as the range of ladyboys you are likely to find in them and include everything from cool and relaxing bars which just happen to have mostly ladyboy staff to strip clubs and go-gos.

    There are specific streets in Pattaya which are almost exclusively dedicated to transgender haunts, including Soi 6/1 and Soi 13/1 (also known as Soi Yamata) off Beach Road as well as a short stretch of Soi Buakhao, close to Soi LK Metro. Our list of the 10 Best Ladyboy Bars in Pattaya picks out the best on offer.

    Lita Bar Soi BJ
    Lita Bar

    An institution in ladyboy circles in Pattaya, Lita Bar is not especially big or rowdy, but is nonetheless the best of its kind in the city. The lady behind it all is known for having run some of the most popular and successful establishments in town and, despite being relatively new to the scene, this bar is continuing that trend. Home to the cream of young and friendly ladyboys, the pool table they’ve just about managed to squeeze into the small space is great for breaking the ice in this discreet venue.

    • Location: Soi BJ, off Walking Street, South Pattaya

    Sensations Bar Action Street
    Sensations Bar

    Sensations is amongst the most popular ladyboy bars in Pattaya, boasting a chilled-out vibe, a pool table and glamourous, beautiful staff. Opened in 2012, it is run by Englishman Scott and his girlfriend Paeng, who were made famous by their appearance on a Sky documentary on the subject of ladyboys. Being a beer bar and right on the corner of an extremely busy road, it is not particularly discreet, but it is friendly and known for throwing great parties.

    • Opening Hours: 17:00 – 02:00
    • Location: 111/304 Action Street, Soi Buakhao, South Pattaya
    • Tel: +66 (0)87 141 9039

    Pook Swan House Soi Buakhao
    Pook Swan House

    This is probably one of the best-known ladyboy bars in Pattaya simply because it is impossible to miss. A combination of guesthouse, beer bar and go-go, the chrome poles and the goddesses who dance on them are right at the front of the shop, practically on the street itself. Naturally, this makes it also one of the least discreet venues on our list of the 10 best ladyboy bars in Pattaya. Being a guesthouse, the bar is open (with staff beckoning passing punters) all day and is a friendly, lively spot with some of the best-looking hostesses.

    • Opening Hours: All day
    • Location: 210/31-32 Soi Buakhao, South Pattaya
    • Tel: +66 (0)3 872 0858

    Stringfellows A Go-Go Soi Yamato
    Stringfellows A Go-Go

    Quite a small, intimate go-go bar, Stringfellows makes up for the modesty of its dimensions with the immodesty of its staff. The ladyboys here are noted for their Amazonian physiques, their skimpy (and, frequently, entirely absent) bikinis and their ‘hands-on’ approach. An extremely popular and long-running establishment, its wild and flirtatious atmosphere is probably best suited to those who are confident and comfortable amongst Pattaya ladyboys

    • Opening Hours: until 02:00
    • Location: 219/72 Soi 13/1, Beach Road, South Pattaya

    My Way Beer Bar Walking Street
    My Way Beer Bar

    Sometimes known as “Hot Tuna” because it is right next to the live rock music bar of that name, this small ladyboy bar on Walking Street looks like just another amongst hundreds of its kind, but is widely known as one of the best places to find ladyboys who have long legs and large chests. Particularly lively in the early hours of the morning, it is right on Walking Street and therefore not especially discreet. There are other places around it – including Linda Bar and Marine Disco – which are known for their ladyboys, but My Way is said to be the best on Walking Street.

    La Bamba Bar and Guesthouse Soi Yamato
    La Bamba Bar and Guesthouse

    A long-running ladyboy establishment, this small, discreet bar has a classy look and a laid-back atmosphere. Run by well-respected ladyboy, Nok, it has comfy chairs, soft lighting, music which isn’t trying to deafen you and, while it isn’t a go-go bar, does have a couple of chrome poles which get occasional use. The ladyboys are more mature, but not what you’d call ‘old’ and they definitely haven’t lost their looks. This gives the place a more relaxed feel, making it a good place to start if you’re new to the ladyboy scene.

    Pook Bar & A Go-Go Soi 6/1
    Pook Bar & A Go-Go

    Having the same name as the place we have as #3 in our list of the 10 best ladyboy bars in Pattaya is no coincidence as this is the Soi 6 sister venue. Unlike many other bars to carry the title of ‘a go-go’, Pook is wide open with no front wall or door, making it one of the least discreet of our list. However, a staff of up to 30 stunning ladyboys, many of whom are more mature in both years and personality, makes it one of the most popular places on a street where there is a lot of competition. The bar also has four televisions and three pool tables and is known for its great parties.

    Baby Boom A Go-Go Soi Buakhao
    Baby Boom A Go-Go

    Another fairly small go-go, Baby Boom is the only ladyboy bar in Pattaya to have a shower show, as well an impressive candle show. The girls, while certainly pretty, do not have the absolutely stunning looks of the establishments further up our list, but make up for this shortfall by being notably friendly and fun. Being down a side-road, it is a very discreet location and the European owner is very accommodating, willing to arrange parties at short notice or change the music if you ask nicely.

    The House & Love Time Inn Soi Yamato
    The House & Love Time Inn

    Opening in July 2013, The House is a ladyboy bar dedicated to house music, thereby combining the two things the French owners love most. Love Time Inn guesthouse is directly above the bar and is accessible either from the bar or a dedicated outside entrance. With such devotion to two specific themes, this is naturally a great place for parties as well as a small staff of attractive hostesses. Before opening, the entire building was fully renovated, making it one of the freshest bars in town, though it is also one of the smallest.

    Pattaya Obsessions Soi Pattaya Funland
    Pattaya Obsessions

    Not only is Obsessions part of the neighbouring (non-ladyboy) Kitten Club, but is also connected to the nearby Penthouse Hotel. The two go-gos, despite having separate entrances, are actually the same building once you get inside, but the distinction between fully female and transgender staff is usually clear thanks to colour-coded bikinis. With a forest of chrome poles, a Jacuzzi in the middle of the spacious room and highly-rated dancers, it has a lot going for it. However, a reputation for pushy mamasans and expensive drinks seriously hinders its popularity.

    • Opening Hours: 18:00 – 02:00
    • Location: 325/61 Moo 10, Beach Road Soi 13/4, South Pattaya
    • Tel: +66 (0)3 871 0917
