First thing I have noticed generally over the past week is how quiet it is. 

Hmmm, not what the decibel meters in photos are saying. 555

I like the idea of the decibel meters and I've installed a couple on my phone, but it's understandable that there are doubts over the numbers they produce.  How can we be sort of sure about their calibration?  They could be miles out.

Totally  agree with the lighthouse rating. Best line up I have seen till now, and I have been  to a lot of them in the last three weeks. No customers though. Dollhousexxx also has a lot of pretty girls.

I also heard the barfine is 1000 baht all night as opposed to many only after midnight.

I think they are ballpark right. Boost at Iron said he gets the DJ to set the volume at 75db and monitors it and its around that give or take 5 or 10. Maybe its possible it sounds louder in Iron because of the high ceilings and walls

Widnmill is also famous for the show and nudity, right? I don't really see the point of barfining from a gogo at those prices. But its the only place you'll see nudity without a barfine, so I wanna see it.

Lots of full nudity in Pattaya.  I went to a lot of bars and about half had some sort of full nudity (some girls naked, some topless, some in full bikinis.  The places with fully clothed girls isn't fun for me as I'm used to Nude clubs in Canada.  Sugarbaby, Dollhouse XXX, Crazy House are 3 that had full nudity in May, just off the top of my head.

As for the loudness topic, if it's too loud or smokey, ugly girls, etc,  I just walk out.  Each can make their own decision.

Okay, that's LOUD.  The guy who posted 80, that's definitely not.  Is the Queen Club a gogo or dance bar?  Usually gogo's aren't that loud.

 

Did you use an actual Sound Level Meter or an app on your smartphone?  If it was an app, I almost guarantee it's wrong, unless you felt like you went to a rock concert for 2 days afterwards.  At that level, you couldn't hold a conversation without yelling right into someone's ear, not conducive to a good bar experience.  Unless you are a dance club...

 

800px-Optimus_Sound_Level_Meter.jpg

As someone who has been to heavy metal concerts (KISS) and the front row of Pearl Jam, I have no doubt it was well over 100 dB in Queen Club. Of course no phone app is going to be as accurate as a proper dB meter. I was also a motorway officer that operated the real ones measuring the loudness of Harleys and tractor trailer units. So I would say by the pain in my ears, it was close to 110. 

And yes, you couldn't hardly speak to the wait staff. I pointed at my ears and gestured that it is too loud and the lady mouthed to me "every day". I know a few girls who used to work there, and they agreed that the music in there is ridiculously loud. 

 

I will buy a half assed dB meter for kicks to compare how well it works to the phone app. Yes, I know one gets what they pay for, but I am not going to go all out. I just want people to know how loud some of these places are. Living Dolls Showcase is another one that can get absurdly loud. Three of us side by side and could not understand each other (well one was Irish, so can't understand him in a quiet room!)

This is fresh off the press. Let's see it's 2 am and I have already been home an hour ..almost unheard of for me unless I was getting laid which I wasn't. I gave up that privilege to explore Walking st..in short it wasn't worth it and I won't be wasting anymore time there this trip. The quality is frankly appalling. Maybe I expect too much but absolutely nothing turned my head tonight and I've been to...:

Palace..former barfine hit me up for a drink..sweet girl but I will send with for an afternoon session avec la.

Tantra....never seen so many badly placed tattoos in my life not to mention the stretch marks.. actually many of the tattoos covering them

Windmill...The usual suspects..except the one I was looking for...ain't that the way

Peppermint...I like it....the staff are nice..but there's nothing to suit me at the moment

Fahrenheit...Got two on my Line from here but they are not working tonight... quality sells quickly

Lighthouse.....Oh dear.. what's the hype about..I didn't see anything

Runway....don't know how this joint stays open

Dollhouse..In and out..say no more

Anywhere else popular I didn't mention is because I already know what to expect and it's nothing special.

I'm looking forward to a McDonald's and bed. Fortunately still got several backstops for tomorrow and no barfine. 

That's all the Go Go news for now...quite honestly I saw better at the Rolling live 4 bar in soi 7 on my first night...but so jet lagged I couldn't compute.

I’m getting ready to take my annual trip to LOS as a side trip from my regular trips to the Philippines.  I haven’t been there since last November and I do enjoy the nudity provided in the bars there but that’s about it.  It’s very rare that I have seen anything worth a 1k BF + whatever ridiculous ripoff tip that’s demanded.  The Gogos these days are worth a look and one drink for myself but that’s it.  You guys looking for more than that with better lookers will have to withstand the crowds at Christmas/New Years when they gravitate to Pattaya to make some quick cash.

So it is much better in the Philippines?

I do not need an app or meter to tell me when the music is not conducive to my personal tolerance and thus the chance to communicate with a possible bf.

I realise that my tolerance level is partially self inflicted by working in the entertainment industry for 27 years.

I did a side trip for a few days in PI and I do not regret it but it was certainly no Pattaya experience.

A bit of off topic is usually a good thing.

 

WS will likely pick up soon and reports will get more positive. When i go i frequently think most of the girls are no better than beach road girls. I can't see why anyone barfines a filler fugly

That location info is out of date so I'm afraid I can't comment on Bangkok nightlife. 

I have avoided Bangkok since about 2012 when prices seemed to be spiralling out of control.

There seems to be a more positive vibe from LK Metro. I enjoyed my time in Champagne and KINK last night. particularly impressed with the look of KINK although I had a barfine from Champagne in tow ( she pounces on me every time I go in and won't take No for an answer and she is cheap which is a combination hard to resist) so I need to go back alone for the real feel.

No offense, but 1000b is $30 US dollars...  I know people on this board pinch pennies but it's hard to buy a pair of jeans for that.

In Canada, that's $40 and it gets me only half a tank of gas. 

When you think something is 'so expensive' look to your own money and what you can buy in your own country.   Like an escort is at least $300/hr here, which is around 7500 baht.  You want one for LT, my buddy paid $1000 CDN which is my whole budget/week in Pattaya. 

I haven't been to Phil, but from what I see in pics/videos and reviews people post - there is widespread poverty, more crime and doesn't interest me in the least.  I'd rather pay more for a little better environment.

I've started a sister thread to this titled "Current GC status", which I hope will be used in just the same way as this for quick one sentence summaries of what you think of the GCs around town, ie line-ups, prices and service you received. Please post away on it.

Well that is correct.  1000 baht is not a lot of money but add the ridiculous 2000 to 3000 tip that is demanded we are now talking around the equivalent of US $100 or more for ST.  When I first went to LOS the exchange rate was 44 baht to the dollar.  Now it is just under 33 where as the PHP peso is now close to 54 to the dollar.  There are still ST bars in Angeles where I frequent that are 1000 PHP ST.  Not trying to start a  LOS vs Philippines debate but I also prefer the pinays.  Maybe it’s an acquired taste but those girls seem more genuine to mr and not as greedy plus they turn me on.  As for the crime, I have not experienced it however I did have $700 lifted from my carry on bag during a van gas stop to Hua Hin once.

Is KINK new? Didn't notice this a few months back.
