Bangkok Nightlife 2016 - VLOG 57 Soi Cowboy / Nana Plaza
A VLOG from March 2016 taken at Soi Cowboy and Nana Plaza in Bangkok, Thailand. There is also some footage from Soi 7/1 and Climax nightclub in this video.
The parts of this video are:
Sukhumvit Soi 7/1
Tuk Tuk to Soi 11, Climax Nightclub
Sukhumvit Soi 7/1:
Soi 7/1 is a street that not many tourists/expats venture down, so it's usually pretty quiet. It is home to many dirty massage parlours, a few regular bars, Magic Table gogo bar, Bangkok Beat Nightclub and some random restaurants and guesthouses.
Walking down Soi 7/1 for the first time can be intimidating, the massage girls / ladyboys will block your path and use their charms to coax you inside. Be firm but polite when declining their services, I usually say I'm headed to the Pickled Liver pub for a drink and they leave me well alone.
The Dr BJ's massage branches (the original Salon and the Nuru place) are located on Soi 7/1, at the salon you can read the menu in this video at 4:29
, prices are is 700 baht for a nurse and 1000 for a consultant :)
Dr BJ's must be doing a good trade because they are opening 4 new places soon according to their website: a gogo bar, a lodge, Rig Pigs (whatever that is?!) and a Lord BJs place.
A note about the Tuk Tuk ride:
This ride was free for me because the driver gets a kickback of the full cover charge per person of 250 baht to enter Climax Nightclub.
This is one of the reasons many late night Taxis and Tuk Tuks are so keen on only hunting for customers going to nightclubs at night, as many other nightclubs give similar kickbacks to the drivers.
The 250 baht is per person, so if a taxi takes 4 guys to Climax Nightclub he will get 1000 baht (not bad for 10 minutes work).
If you are in a group you can actually negotiate with the driver to pay you to take you to the nightclub. So for 4 guys going to Climax, get the driver to pay your group 500 baht and he will get back 1000 from the club so everyone is happy!
