    Bars in Hua Hin

    Someone asked about bars in Hua Hin and although I am not the best person to speak on the subject I'll start the thread and let others comment if they want to.

    I think the first thing to say that is that if you are looking for a Pattaya like experience then go to Pattaya. Hua Hin has a central area with about forty or so beer bars, a few others scattered around the perimeter and that is pretty much it.

    There are no go-go bars, in fact there are no bars that you could not take your children to.

    There are two (I think) gay bars and a single lady boy cabaret.

    All of the bars employ a few girls and most have one or two ladyboys as well. The standard of looks is not particularly high ( I saw a couple of ladies who must have been in their late 50's ) nor do the girls seem particularly interested in going with customers; I have been in bars on several occasions with my wife where the girls have nearly had to be frog marched by the mamasan to sit with a customer.

    On the other hand my son was always made welcome and got a lot of fuss from the girls and they are happy to play pool with him so that I can have a quiet beer.

    Bar fine is 200 and the girls expect 1000 for short time no doubt negotiable depending on time of month etc.

    There is one - count 'em, one - body massage establishment. In the interests of research I stuck my face in to enquire. 1400 - 1800 depending on time required and again there were no girls, on the day I called, that I would be remotely interested in.

    There are a couple of discos - you will have to club together and raise a bribe if you want me to investigate, as there is a strict limit on what I am prepared to do for free, and going to discos is not on the list.

    If you enjoy pool however you could be well served, there seems to be a fairly active pool league here and another bar that seems to be devoted to the local golfers.

    I think I once saw a girl working the street, but the police are likely to discourage anything so obvious.

    There are also a few Thai karaoke places - same rule as with the discos applies I'm afraid.

    And that is that. I am sure that there must be other opportunities but my advice would be that it is easier and cheaper to go to Pattaya.
    Lord, deliver us from e-mail.

    So basically, you're trying to discourage any more people visiting Hua Hin?

    In reading, believe one could safely assume that you are not a bar owner, and that you wont be considering entering the Bar industry in the near future?
    Sounds like there has been little change since I was last there a couple of years back. The first time I was there only ten years or so ago it really was dead. There was literally nothing.

    LOL - I think that Hua Hin has a lot going for it. It's just not the place to live out your sexual fantasies. As long as the King lives there Hua Hin will not be allowed to become another Pattaya.

    Oh! and just for IM - you can see millions of stars at night.

    I know of guys who reckon that they have a wild time in the naughty bars of Hua Hin, but I wouldn't know as I'm a good boy.

    I would be about as good at running a bar as I would be trying to fly by flapping my arms.

    But having said that a number of the bars are consistently busy and clearly making a profit.

    Yes that Darby and Joan club crowd are a pretty crazy lot once they have a few sherries under their belts.

    I wen down Hua Huin a few months back, first time in years. True, you have to look hard to find a decent woman, but they are there. It was a bit shitty at first but after a few days I was having quite a good time round the bars, I suppose its one of those places where you just settle in. Fairlop bar got a good pool table as well if anyone cares.

    You are probably right BM. I am not the most sociable of people and if I have to work at enjoying myself I get too fed up to bother.

    I can't think where Fairlop Bar is - best for pool IMO is one of the bars out of the the main street area (Lucky I think), a couple of European residents have put some money in and bought four new tables 2 eight foot and 2 nine foot.

    Does it means that Hua Hin is crowded with wankers ?

    Never was there, but after reading this thread this place is not on my agenda. And I heard that te beaches are...so...so.

    I've been to Hua Hin a few times, with diferent senarios (taking some of my mates for a few days, going with my sister and family, just with the wife) and every time we have enjoyed it. There about 1 shortish street with the bars and when I went down with the lads the girls seemed pretty attentive allthough we were . Ok theres not the 1000's of bars ao pattaya but realy if you take a 50m stretch of pattya (bar, tailor,dvd shop, shirt shop,trinket shop) you can just multiply it over and over pretty same same

    My sister and family really liked it, good resteraunts, hotels, golf and found the girly bar fun without being to much "in your face". I find it more sleepy and relaxed than Pattaya or Phuket. It's not as expensive as Phuket but not as cheap as Pattaya.
    I have more than the average number of arm and legs

    It depends how you define 'wankers' Jinjok. HH is being pitched as a destination for families and retirement centre - Pattaya seems more geared towards the single man. The beaches and general environment are better than the eastern side of the gulf (IMHO) but not the best in Thailand - it is on the Gulf afterall.

    If it makes any sense, Hua Hin is to Brighton and Hove as Pattaya is to Southend and Blackpool.

    Lol, I was pissed when I wrote the comment about "wankers". So don't pay too much attention. Sang Som can help me so much to "speak too mut"

    Headaches all the day.

    I've visited HH about a dozen times over as many years. IMO it's a chilled out bar experiece along Soi bintabang. A nice place to spend a weekend , relatively hassle free except the odd Moto taxi lad wanting to hustle you at pool. Pattaya it's not , but that's sometimes a good thing.

    Well as a few TD members seem to have a strange fascination with bars I thought that I would provide a few photographs for the dilectation of those who have been fortunate so far in not visiting the ones in Hua Hin.

    The bars such as they are a generally grouped together in a few side streets with Soi Bintabaht being the longest and contining the largest cluster of bars.



    And here is a view down the street



    Not exactly Walking Street is it.

    Moving a little down Soi Poonsuk there are a few more bars pretty much same same



    And then turning 90 to my right -



    And then 90 right again -



    Now those of you who have made it this far, take note of the bar on the right in this last picture 'Lolitas'. This bar represents a departure from the normal open air beer bar that has been the mainstay of Hua Hin nightlife in the past - Lolitas is in fact a 'roll of drums' blow job bar.

    Much to the disgust of the Hua Hin local expats, who have greeted it's opening with a certain amount of harumphing and strong letters to The Times, Lolitas opened with a bit of a whimper on 1st August and in the interests of research I felt it necessary to cross its threshold and meet the owner, who is seemed quite a nice chap and not the horned devil incarnate that I had been led to expect.

    Prices? I hear you shout. 700B for a blow job and 1100 for a full service. The girls have been brought in from Bangkok where I gather one of the partners has a similar establishment on Sukhumvit Soi 8. There were only 5 girls working there when I went in but they hope to bring more girls in later - presumably when they have some customers for them.

    If I sound cynical and unenthusiastic about the whole thing thats only because I am an unenthusiastic and cynical c**t. The bars are actually quite relaxing with little pressure to buy drinks and the girls while often not the most beautiful usually make up for it in personality.

    I am available for guided tours from November onwards - will work for beer.

    Lolita's has been around for a long time. The original was at Asok corner (Suk). The current incarnation off Soi 8 used to be called Alley Kat and was owned by the same guy. When Asok corner was demolished for redevelopment Lolita's took over the Alley Kat location.

    As for Bangkok prices, you'll have to get that from someone who actually knows....

    As for bars in Hua Hin, I'm sort of partial to U-Turn. Always something going on there.

    700B for a BJ in Bangkok, or so I've been told.

    I think it's cheaper in Pattaya though.

    Just back from a few days R&R in HH. I like to go down a few times a year. i prefer the laid back atmosphere and size of HH to BKk. i certainly do not miss the agogo bars
    Enjoying a cold beer as I do I spend a certain amount of time in the bars.
    On this trip most were very quiet indeed. Rarely another customer. The average girl is not too easy on the eye but I am sure that they have a wonderful personality. Well all those except the one in a certain bar who would just not leave me alone. In the end i just had to leave. Obviously she was not the owner. I was the only patron and was buying my share. Perhaps it was a tax loss.
    I dont have a particular favorite. I think it is a case of what time you enter the bar, with whom, the other patrons and the mood of the girls.
    go in to the same bar three times in one evening and have three different experience.

    Typically I find the girls to be pleasant and usually not agressive if that is what you are seeking but they are also usually far from stunners. Personally I prefer the cold ber.
    Most have pool tables and that cerainly could affect your choice, but i dont play.
    Certainly would prefer to be in a bar on bintabint or wherever than say at Crawfords the Irish Bar or the HH Brewery Company at the Hilton.
    I expect to be down in HH a few more times this year
