    Ban Chang Nightlife has it improved

    Hello all, I'm new here but pretty familiar with Ban Chang and Pattaya....I haven't been there in about a year and wondering how the Night Life is lately on the Ban Chang Strip...(ok its only a few blocks long lol) Last time I was there they were building some shop building across the street from the bars....

    Also when I was there last time I actually saw some ladyboys working the bars in Ban Chang....maybe it will become a little Pattaya...lol


    Ok info need please as I'm headed there in a month.


    Thanks

    Hello and welcome.

    I was there last night and it is much the same as normal with the shops across the street finshed and about 30% occupied.

    I was in the Camel Bar and the governor was in another bar and there was another 2 farang in there.

    Walked down the street and poked my head into a few bars and they were almost all empty.

    Personally I like the place and prefer it to walking the streets of downtown Pattaya. There are a few new bars and the others have been mostly renovated.

    Didn't spot any Katoeys but not that I was looking for them either!

    Harem used to have a couple of LBoys working, that was before the shooting. Mamasan reckoned they were better workers.

    Harem has since moved over to the old U & I location in KiloSip (Km10)
    The scene in town is dead now.

    The remaining expats that do hang out there have become like old women, gossiping about whoever is not in the room at the time.

    Most of the LBs around are just cashiers.
    Rabbit bar & Nasa have LB cashiers.

    The Good Time bar on the back side of the Strip has one LB that's not a cashier though, & he's actually convincing. A friend of mine nearly took him upstairs for a ST until I told him it was a guy.

    There's a few places there I avoid like the plague :

    The Bar
    Candy bar
    Mama's (formerly Papa's)
    Beaver bar

    Candy & The Bar have some exceptionally lazy staff & they let their TBFs hang around out front with their children in tow.

    Mama's has an evil woman running it. She gets violent when she gets drunk which is pretty much all of her waking hours.

    Beaver has a nutcase running it. Last I heard he was walking around town with a baseball bat trying to confront some guy suspected of calling one of his BGs on the phone & being rude to her.

    Ban Chang used to be a nice, relaxed scene for golfers and local expats, and a nice change from Pattaya- but then it shot itself in the foot by constantly raising prices, incidences of surly service, agressive bar tactics and even a few rip-offs. Last thing I knew it was more expensive than Pattaya, but maybe it's trying to get back it's reputation these days. Ruined by Greed, basically.

    Augie got turfed out by the Missus, hence the change of name.
    Basically, the Strip has too many bars. There is always some fool who will buy into one after it goes tits-up for the umpteenth time. Everyone has their favourites, but I'd rather go mongering in Pattaya these days, and keep one or two places on the Strip as "locals" only.

    Really. Shit he'd only just finished the house. He claimed he'd spent over 10 mil on it. Plus the conversion of the back of the bar. Well and truly stuffed.

    As far as I know this is what happened... She told people she'd caught him shagging about; which is fukking rich coming from the mouth of a real slag.... I havn't seen him to ask either, since it happened. Wonder if he comes on here, or anyone knows his email / phone no?

    Did have but I think I binned it. Ah well, there go. He was a stingy bastard but his heart was more or less in the right place.

    He did tend to put it out about a bit on the old "Street of Dreams". So probably not surprising. She'll have made a fortune out of him if he walked.

    Sounds really terrible to me this poor guy goes into partnership with a prostitute to run a brothel ,and then gets cheated and robbed of his money
    Shame on Thailand Im sure it couldnt possible happen anywhere else in the world
    If you swim in the sewer dont be surprised if you end up covered in sh*t

    he spells it Augie, & I was propping up that same bar with him & one of his previous co-workers Sunday evening
    I've got some pix from the rest of my times in B'Chang too, but probably not appropriate for this board

    She was certainly a hard assed bitch.

    It was all on the cards though. He did have a tendancy to get pissed, wander up the road a few bars and shag something. Hard to keep that a secret.

    Had some good nights in his bar. But, there you go, times change.

    If you should see him say "hi" from the snot dance man.
