    Sukhumvit soi 7/1

    In my time here I've witnessed the demise of, IMHO, some of Bangkok's more tackier drinking zones. Namely, soi 10, thanks to Khun Chuwit's outrageous imitation of the nazi's 'night of the broken glass', where his paid thugs smashed the fok out of, in the main, soi 10's bars, after closing one night.

    I've also see Clinton Plaza, shrink and then disappear into a new condo or hotel complex.

    And also, Asoke Corner, has been demolished to make way for a shopping centre or such.

    Using the displacement theory, take something away and it will return somewhere else and since the bars above vanished soi 7/1 has seen a gradual growth over the last 3 years.

    Here's the view from Nana BTS station. Notice the electrical wires..ugly or what?



    What Bangers could be without the wires..


    Some people have a little difficulty with the street numbering system so I'm putting a piccy of Subway in the thread, even though I consider it to be incredibly overpriced tasteless pulp,
    Just to let you know where the soi is

    Soi 7/1, as most of you are well aware, is home to the infamous 'Eden Club'.
    A true den of iniquity if there ever was one.
    Openly advertising as nowt more than a brothel and run by a Frenchman, the Eden Club has gained a reputation that money can't buy.
    I'm to lazy to put in the 'bangkoktonite forum pages dedicated to the place but if you want a 'special' time while in Bangers, Eden is the place to go!



    I picked a bad time of day for my shot as usually around mid afternoon there's a bevvy of ladies filling their faces on the seats outside but alas not this day!

    As you come into the soi the first place of note is the relatively new 'Absolute7' bar.
    The pic doesn't do the place justice, it's been there one or two years and is nice inside.
    I'd call it a 'mini' Gullivers. Similar crowd a bit up market from the tired old pool bar on soi 7.
    It has in it's favour.........Guinness at a miserly 200 baht a pint.

    Not far into the soi is a place you'll want to bookmark, the Star Inn.
    When you're rushed for a place to put your head down for an hour or two it's very handy. Bit pricey but if you have a deadline and you've just pulled in the Beergarden, it's a lot closer than the Playboy!
    300 baht an hour and not every room has a toilet but I have fond memories.


    Moving down the soi there's the Parnthip massage place where the girls are very hopeful. I think they have a lot of competition in soi 7/1 and they've taken to wearing a pleasant uniform


    After the Tailors you come to the 'Boo-Sa-Bar' which was the first girly bar in the soi. If you like the 'in your face' style with 'hands on' this place will do.

    Sitting shopulder to shoulder with Boo-Sa is the P.P.Bar which was the second 'new' bar to open. Like the first one? You'll like the second.


    I must extend my sincerest apologies to this bar which is opposite the P.P. because I forgotten the name of the place. I shall rectify this in the near future. The bar? Yep same/same.



    The Night Flight Bar has been around in one form or another I believe and now is trying to fit in with the otter bars in the locale. During the day looks like a nice quiet place for a beer!



    Maxims is a hotel that has been in the soi for God knows how long and with the growth in bars, girls and fellas, they have joined in as well with the bar and tables and chairs.

    Back to the other side of the soi again we have the 'Crazy Hot' Bar.
    Snugly fitting into the 'Life in your armpit' theory it's jammed in between P.P. and Siam Smile. Any noticable difference between any of these bars would be a welcome addition to the thread!


    Here is Siam Smile. It's ......it's .....it's another bar. Has beer, girls, music and barstools. What more could you want?



    Down the bottom we have Tequila Dragon. This place is a double shophouse, as you can see, and it's has pool tables, beer, girls and barstools. The newest place in the soi if I recall correctly. It's flash.

    The last port of call on Poolie's Day Off is my personal favorite.
    The 'Down Under' Bar.
    Favorite for a couple of reasons, one not being because it's an Aussie bar nor the fact than you can buy Aussie beers such as Fosters, VB or Crown Lager, not even because, unlike their sisters at the other bars in soi 7/1, the girls here don't paw you or beg for lady drinks.

    No, the first reason is the guy who runs the place, Rob is a great bloke in all areas and the place reflects this. He welcomes his patrons as they walk in, a bit of old fashioned hospitality, and he's always helpful to his patrons.

    The other reason I like the bar is the people you mee there. The majority of customers are expats working in and around Sukhumvit and they're by and large a friendly bunch. granted, there's a lot of Aussies and the odd(?) Kiwi to be found but finding a wanker there is a rarity.

    Down Under specialises in sport. so if you like your football, rugby, Aussie rules, cricket, F1 it's a good place to head for. Rob's got a big screen projector and regularly holds special events for the big games.



    There's no 'Short Time Bar' exposes in my thread but this chubby young thing was giving me a flash. thank God i missed.


    And in true Aussie tradition they serve kangaroos here as well..


    There you have it Sukhumvit soi 7/1. A quieter alternative to Nana for an afternoon's imbibement. Enjoy!

    Soi 7/11 is a dump, worst part of the jungle that is nana to asoke. Even all those pics you posted are filled with ugly munters, whats the attraction?

    I walked down that way about 3 am the other night, the farangs are like the living dead down there, foods crap at the stalls, and the women are just fucking horrible to look at.

    That areas only good for the pool halls.

    I bet the church would have better looking women dude.

    If you want to go out for a drink in Bangkok/Thailand the very least you should expect is to be served by some decent looking women, and soi 7/11 doesn't have them. Proper dregs down there.

    Add to that the ton of scumbags that descend on that area and it doesn't make it a fun place to be.

    You offer no alternative so I have to disregard your imput.

    I hope you're happy in Soi 4 at Patpong but try and accept not everyone's the same as you!

    Of course, I never made any reference about the quality of girl to be found there.
    "Naturally, Poolie" I hear you say.
    Yes, I'm not a whoremonger so how would I know what qualifies to BKKmadness what is or isn't a tasty whore to be had.

    I hope this is just the spur for our well-travelled member to enlighten us on his undoubtably superior experiences with the ladies of the night.

    Anyway, those members who aren't egotistically challenged now have another destination for an afternoon's drinking or just a great place to meet people or catch a bit of sport, happily with the knowledge that our newbie friend won't be around!

    Well, if you accept it too then.

    Whats suk 7/11 got thats so special is what I'm saying?

    Look, it seems I've really upset you by cussing your bangkok mecca dude, but really IMO its a dump.

    I just dont get the attraction to the area? Is it too much to get my beer served by a decent looking girl in Thailand? Am I asking too much of this world we live in?

    Not even talking about whores, just talking about a decent looking girl serving me a drink, christ don't have a cow dude, I didnt mean to spoil your thread.

    I only made an opinion of an area, is it your hometown or something? Why so stressed?

    happily with the knowledge that our newbie friend won't be around!
    Boo hoo, I'm a newbie.

    fucking hell man, calm yourself down with some diazzys or something.

    Perhaps if you had explained yourself it would have been better.

    If you have a more attractive alternative by all means let us know.

    Pissing on someone's thread for no apparent reason makes you look like a twat.

    So where is this Eden of yours?

    I can drink anywhere. I won't drink in soi 33 for 125 baht a bottle when it's 60 baht in soi 7/1.

    Ah dude, my apologies, I thought this was a place where someone offered an opinion on a place to go and other people offered their opinions of it, I didn't know it was a promotional piece or somewhere so close to your heart.

    Evryone has different opinions of their best places in Bangkok, so just accept them with a bit of grace.

    I suppose my fave little eden in Bangkok at the moment has to be Suan Lum, nice beers, good prices, plenty of birds. Marmite done a nice piece on it here.

    http://teakdoor.com/food-and-drink/2...er-garden.html (Suan Lum Beer Garden)

    Other than that, then you might often find a newbie like me down soi 4 coz of the ball in hand and Hilary bars.

    Well, Poolie, being a reclusive North Dwellin' Hermit; the place looked interesting to me. The ladies not the stunners I'm sure our eccentric noob is used to but probably pleasant enough and with amusing personalities no doubt.
    I would be more than happy to while away an hour or so sippin' a Thai-mad beer-like substance as I watch beer bellied & balding toursits/(s)expats play "slap and tickle" with the lovely young ladies (with great personalities) along the boulevard.

    Ladies... I dont think some members are being fair here. Handing out the newbie flames is what the other forum is best at, bkkmadness only added a comment that was not agreed with but when you make a thread you should always acknowledge there will be members that agree and some that disagree and take it with a pinch of salt.
    Welcome to the jungle!
