Billboard & Butterflies Closing Sunday And Monday Nights



bl bf closed sunday monday

When Billboard and Butterflies in Nana Plaza take two nights off you know things are far from good.

We all know business is quiet across all three nightlife areas.

The prolonged border closure to regular tourists is tough on everyone in the entertainment business who to a fair extent rely on tourists to turn a profit.

We are now into the fifth month since bars, pubs and clubs were given the green light to reopen and losses are racking up and costs need to be cut in order to survive and see out the next six months.

It makes sense and nobody can blame anyone for doing so.

In Bangkok, there are only so many guys on the ground who are into go-go bars with some having to work and others watch their bank balance or maybe both so it’s inevitable bars will be quiet more nights than not so why not take a few nights off and save on salaries and overheads?

A number of nightclubs and go-go bars have already gone down this road and following the announcement from Billboard and Butterflies that they will take Sunday and Monday nights off, I think it would be fair to suggest others in Nana Plaza might just well follow suit.

In the meantime, the top floor will be rocking it Tuesday through Saturday as usual with good music, cold beers and of course, a bevvy of beauties to keep you company.

Cactus Bar On Cowboy Closing For A Couple Of Months




The owners of Cactus bar on Soi Cowboy have decided to take a couple of months off and close the bar from today, December 1.

Times are tough all over and anyone who has wandered down the Neon Alley will understand why closing Cactus makes sense – there’s just nobody about.

Much the same as Nana Plaza, one bar closes and another opens as The Dollhouse come back from the dead the same day Cactus closes.

All anyone can do right now is hold out as long as they can in any way they can so they are still in business when the borders open back up.

In the meantime, you can find the Cactus crew along the soi at Long Gun where they’ll be plying their trade for the time being.

Whiskey-A-Go-Go… Now Open In Nana Plaza




Whiskey-A-Go-Go, or as the sign says Whiskey & Go-Go, opened its doors last Friday night with a quiet launch so the new guys could find their feet and get everything just right before doing any promotional push to let everyone know about Bangkok’s newest chrome pole palace.

I stuck my head in on Saturday night to say hello and see what the place looked like and more importantly, to see how the line-up of ladies was looking.

Located on the middle floor next door to Random bar to the left of the stairs up to the top floor, Whiskey-A-Go-Go is hard to miss, unlike its predecessor that sat virtually in the dark.

Lots of bright lights and smiling staff with signs for 99 baht beers waiting to welcome you inside was a good start.

The beer was cold, the staff friendly and the layout pretty much just the way it always was with a lick of gold and black paint to spruce the place up a bit.

Sitting on the front row to get a good view of the stage the design is a little odd in that there is a low table to place your drinks on… they are far too low and useless if you’d had a few.

The dancing dollybirds were wearing various costumes of the kinky kind such as French Maid, Naughty Nurse, Sexy Schoolgirls, and the one that caught my eye was the Foxy Flight Attendant who invited me to join the mile high club with her in the hotel upstairs.

Were they all stunners? Of course not, but unlike what some sweetie wives around town are saying, they were not the worst line-up by any manner of means. I’d say all under 27, no fatties, and most were very friendly not to mention easy on the eye.

Local beers such as Leo, Chang, and Singha are all just 99 baht all night, every night.

One other noticeable thing you won’t see in Whiskey-A-Go-Go is any mamasans because the bar has opted not to hire any.

The new owners like most of us are sick and tired of these big old boilers hassling customers for drinks and pushing for barfines so they took the decision to go with the flow and kick them into touch.

The bar also stocks a wide selection of high-end spirits you don’t typically see in go-go bars such as Johnnie Walker Blue, Green and Gold, Macallan 18-year Scotch, and other 12-18-year-old whiskies.

The bar is open Tuesday through Sunday with Monday night a day of rest for everyone.

Is Whiskey-A-Go-Go worth a visit? Sure it is. Just don’t walk in and walk out because it’s quiet, keep in mind if it’s quiet, you have all the girls to yourself.

Kazy Kozy Call It Quits



Kazy Kozy Call It Quits

Kazy Kozy took over the corner location of the Old Dutch on Soi Cowboy back in early 2019 opening in March and a grand opening party a month later with a marching band, a lot of glitz and glamour never seen before for the opening of a go-go bar on the Neon Alley.

It gained a few followers but those hoping for a Crazy House 2 were left disappointed at the shows and silly seating.

Like all nightlife in Thailand, it was shuttered in March due to the coronavirus situation and reopened back in July hoping to make a go of it without tourists.

It just didn’t have the local following needed to pull that off and was soon closing on random nights of the week in a bid to cut costs.

The plug was finally pulled a couple of weeks ago and Kazy Kozy has remained closed since.

As it turns out, it’s closure looks to be permanent with the owners opting to take the bar in a different direction.

A few ideas are being touted with the most likely outcome being another live music bar on Soi Cowboy much like Corner Bar and Country Road at the opposite end of the street.

One less go-go bar but not one that will be missed plus the location was a food and drink focused bar for almost 3 decades until KK took it over.
