Soi Gold Label Becomes Soi Cowboy

Back in the mid 1970’s Soi Cowboy was known as Soi Gold Label, named after the streets first bar catering to foreigners and it’s first real go-go bar, that opened in 1975 or 1977 depending on the source.

Gold Label bar and several others were owned by a retired American airman by the name of TG Edwards who was often seen around the soi sporting his signature cowboy hat.

If you look closely at the lead photo taken in January 1981, on the right is Loretta’s, one of the largest bars in Bangkok at the time.

Loretta had been married to T.G. Edwards. He lost everything to his wife during a bitter divorce.

The Cowboy Bar was opened toward the end of the decade by another retired US military veteran. Everyone knew him simply as “Cowboy”.

Nightlife columnist Bernard Trink coined the name Soi Cowboy when referring to the soi in his weekly rundown of what was happening in the naughty nightlife neighbourhoods of Bangkok and the name stuck.

The rest they say is history…

Devils Den Becomes The Latest Covid Casualty

The Devil’s Den in Pattaya has become the latest nightlife Covid casualty after shutting up shop.

Without any announcement, Devil’s Den located on Soi LK Metro simply closed the doors and stripped the venue back to the bare walls.

Had it not been for the fact the venue was stripped naked, one might have thought the closure was just temporary but it would appear that’s not the case.

Devil’s Den described itself as, “Much more than just an escort service, rather a place where one’s fantasies really do come true and your satisfaction is guaranteed”.

One less kinky club on the landscape.

UPDATE: Despite closing their LK Metro location, apparently DD is still “open”… on the internet.
