Most interesting bars :
Tilac Bar : Many girls ; coyotees during the WE ; reasonable prices.
Lucky Star (Long Gun) : Small, but long established. Sexotic shows.
Baccara : Flashy, best designed bar, expensive.
Rawhide Bar : Both cute girls and off putting women.
Dollhouse : The best and longest lasting happy hour.
Five Stars (rating : )
Five Stars is located close to the entrance on the left side, when entering Soi Cowboy from Asoke Road. This bar has been around for a while.
Five Stars is not like any other a go go at Soi Cowboy, since besides gogo dancing it features a live band, that seems to be playing most of the evening and night. The bar is small (one 'townhouse' width) and did not change much over the years. The live music seems to be mainly rock and roll from the 60's and 70's. When I last visited, there was actually a 'farang' lead singer. The music isn't too loud, and altogether quite enjoyable.
The girls themselves dancing on the stage (about 5 girls at a time) do the classic Bangkok shuffle, seem a little bit bored at times, and even squat down in between the songs. However, most of them seem to prettier than your average Soi Cowboy bar girl. Not too many girls here past multiple pregnancies, or overly obese. The atmosphere in the bar is altogether rather good. Drink prices are quite acceptable, beer at 90 baht, soft drinks at 70 baht (ladies drinks 80 baht). The bar fine at Five Stars is 400 baht, lower than in most other bars (admittedly bigger bars).
