Nana Plaza is Bangkok’s busiest go go bar area, located as it is right in the thick of the Sukhumvit hotel district. It’s loaded with hot go go girls and has a large selection of both go go bars and regular beer bars. Those fresh off the plane looking for sex and a good time should head straight for Sukhumvit Soi 4 and Bangkok Nana Plaza.
There are dozens of bars with numerous available ladies in Nana Plaza. Some of the best stage shows and girls are found in discreet go go bars here, while venues at the entrance are regular beer bars where you can also pick up girls. Bar fines for the girls in the beer bars or go go bars are 500 or 600 baht. Prices for sex are usually 1,500 baht for short time and 2,000-3,000 baht for all night.
The sheer level of female company inside Nana Plaza is mindboggling, even for seasoned expats. They are all full of sexy ladies, usually shouting out ‘hello welcome’ to get you inside. The action really begins when you get past the open-air bars at the entrance. From here, you can wander around all the other beer bars and go go bars that are spread across all three floors.
Sit in any one of them for even a minute and you’ll be motioned to buy a drink; in the beer bars usually for yourself at first, but the go gos certainly for whichever girl talks to you. Although drinks are more expensive for the girls (typically 150 baht for a watered down whisky), there will be none of the abject ripping off as associated with parts of Patpong. Beers for the punters are 100 baht up per bottle.
Although Bangkok Nana Plaza sex is excessive, for Thailand, when you see very sexy girls dancing on stage, it is definitely worth it. The likes of Angelwitch are certainly worth a look, boasting very hot girls and shows. Rainbow 2 and Rainbow 4 are also right up there, plus Nana Plaza also has ladyboy bars, such as Casanova.
In addition, right down the same street are more laidback bars, pubs and restaurants, as well as ‘happy ending’ massage parlours. Meanwhile, the well known Nana Liquid disco at the Nana Hotel (just across the way) is good for after hours and rooms at the hotel are reasonably price, both for a few hours and all night.
There’s also activity at the top of Soi Nana as it is within the hotel district and the main shopping areas of Siam Square and Pratunam. Freelancers hang around Soi Nana (by night) and you can save yourself a bundle, not having to by drinks, pay a bar fine, and also getting a better price for the pussy. However, be careful with these girls as the potential of being drugged and robbed (minus any sex) is higher.
Most new arrivals’ first impressions of Nana Plaza are usually seedy, what with hundreds of prostitutes, freelancers on the streets, street vendors selling off cheap, fake crap, and dodgy tuk-tuk drivers, etc. It is what it is, though; perhaps the best spot in town to pull yourself a fine go go girl.
If Bangkok Nana Plaza is all too much, just across Sukhumvit Road is the Arab Quarter, where there are more upmarket bars and many decent prostitutes freelancing. For respite and a proper beer, the well known Gulliver’s expat bar is located here.
