A week after Pattaya, we decided to regroup in Soi 4. Hooters.
Has Hooters lost it’s appeal? Didn’t seem so interesting this time for some reason. After a few drinks, we usually opt for a bottle, but this time we just couldn’t see ourselves being there long enough.
Bubba and I were sinking a few Vodkas, talking about how the Hooters girls of gone from lovely looking girls with big hooters, to weathered girls with big tattoos – when we were approached by what I can only describe as a trainee Terminator. It was Flank. Dressed in black. Black clothes, black tattoos, black jewellery and black eyes.
Frank has seen the sun beaming off my bald head over at Big Dogs, so he and his gf came and joined us. Not long after, GM turned up with another pal.
A number of drinks were slung down our necks, but not before we had the chance to purchase 13 pairs of sunglasses and a new iPhone 9 from the street vendors. Oh, and a couple of Dildos for Lomeo and Jonas.
With a few of us in tow, it was only right to go to another bar which doesn’t issue discount cards and then revoke them a few weeks after.
I don’t know the name of it – but there is a new(ish) bar on the corner just past Hanrahans. A little quirky even.
We piled in there – filling the place up. Tables together and started ordering booze. Being a small bar – the speakers were right in our ears which was less than pleasing for me. Flank wasn’t complaining and starting playing air guitar or air drums. I can’t remember which.
Not a bad little bar really. A couple of staff were loitering around but not making a nuisance of themselves. The only thing that put me off the bar was the stools. They were that cheap metal crap. Reminded me of garden furniture. Not comfy at all.
However, it wasn’t a bad little bar and the only reason we moved on was to get a change of scenery. After Flank put his air instruments away we headed to Witches and Wenches – or something like that? It used to be the 7/11 opposite the old Mango soi.
Upon arrival I received a ‘Whaaaaaaa….. Khun Gray-ham’. – So I guess I knew her?
Once inside, tables were pulled together and menus shoved in our faces. A few more girls came over and said hello – and asked where Miss Tim is. Odd. Who are these girls?
Well, it turns out there were a few of the old Mango staff now working there. I remembered one – but not the others that she pointed out. Not that I am saying they didn’t work for me, I just didn’t remember.
I always said those girls wouldn’t go far – and I was right. They went about 100 meters.
The bar has a long roadside bar/bench for a bit of people watching that is always good. We had too many of us to sit in a line – so the roadside bench was taken up with all the girls. Sitting under the big sign that say ‘Witches & Wenches’. I wasn’t sure if that was the name of the bar or a description of the girls.
It’s a pity. Nice new bar. Everything looking nice and out of place in Soi 4 – and it’s spoiled by having a load of hogs stink the place up. Still, some people like that I guess?
It wasn’t bad in there. And I must say I’d rather sit in a new, clean, tidy bar than an old stinky run down bar. So we stayed there instead of going into the Tavern.
With Soi 4 undergoing a bit of redevelopment lately – we thought we’d stay with the theme of new bars – and headed to the new Hilary Bar. Now, I am not a fan of Hilary Bar. GM is a big fan for some reason unknown to me?
He claims he goes to see the band. Having heard the band, I can’t say I am a fan. In fact, I’d rather listen to Flanks air guitar than the Hilary Band.
Anyway, into the new bar we went. Again, nice an new – and pretty nice. It’s a bit out of the way to get any people watching going on – but then I guess this is a bar for drinkers.
There were a few Freelancers dotted about the place but you’d not go there if you were looking for a girl.
One girl asked me if I wanted to play a game. Be that pool, jenga or something out of SAW. I knew whatever it is she was challenging me to, I’d lose. Thanks but no thanks.
Nice bar, but then I am sure Hilary 2 was a nice bar when that 1st opened up? I am sure it’ll be a shit hole this time next year.
Lots of bars now are stocking Grey Goose. This is a good thing. I think. Although, it just means I end up drinking more than I should.
From Hilary 19 or whatever it’s called went for a little walk along soi 4 – to Big Dogs. Just like the previous bar, the name described the workers. But we were not there for that.
The only place to sit in B.D is the corner. You get a good view of the street. Can’t say we were too impressed by the service or the drinks – so after half hour or so we decided to head to Soi 22 and visit an old fave of our – ‘Too Easy Bar’.
Too Easy is a little bar – with friendly staff. They know us. And the ones that didn’t know us, didn’t take long to get to know us. We have a philosophy that if a girl wants a drink, then they have to earn it. So they did.
Like many bars – trying to please customers with your music is never easy. The only thing to do is hook up a computer and put youtube on. The only problem to have then – is that Frank might one day turn up and select a load of Heavy Rocker Punk Screaming of some kind. It wasn’t long before he pulled his Air instruments out of his pocket and started performing.
Good quality drinks and good measures. Always good in there.
Time was cracking on and about 6pm saw us wanting to stuff our faces. Franks performance was cut short and we headed over the road to The Penalty Spot.
Food is good in there. I think? I always opt for the Goulash soup which is good. All other food on the menu could be shit for all I know?
After a feeding, we were starting to sober up and someone suggested a nap. It may have been me? But no a nap – which leads to sleeping until the morning. No, we needed to recharge and then head out.
Only one thing for it……. Pattaya!
Those aboard that are coming aboard…….
My Driver was not far away, so the plan was to pick us up at the hotel at 19:30. We could have a little nap in the car and be good to go around 21:30. 3-4 hours in Patts should be enough.
What could possibly go wrong?
