There are bars and then there is Agogo bar. The difference between the two is simply the gogo bar is a combination of a bar and a strip club. It’s raunchier, they have live shows, they have more girls, the atmosphere I would say it’s livelier than a bar and strip club.
Here’s a scenario, you go to a five-star hotel in India you pay five hundred rupees for a drink or a cocktail. When you leave you are left high and dry with a minimum bill of 3500-5000 rupees. Now if you go to an Agogo bar in Pattaya for the same price of five hundred rupees you get a girl sitting on your lap, how about that.
Not only that, for five hundred rupees you get two drinks one for you and one for the girl companion. The drink can be a tequila shot or a Chevas. The same in India, for five hundred rupees you would have got some IMFL. Chivas and a Tequila shot would have cost you a minimum of 1500-2000 rupees. Now that’s what I call value for money.
There are plenty of Agogo bars in walking street and now in the LK Metro area as well. You can find the list of the top 5 Agogo Bars here.
You can pick up girls from these Agogo’s by paying `bar fine’. Which can be as low as 500Baht and high as 2000Baht. `This bar fine’ is just a fee to the club, you have to pay the girl extra. The girl will cost you from 2000-5000Baht. Price variation can be for different reasons, one its peak season, two the girl is too hot or three you are picking her before 12midnight. As per the bar, if you are taking his premium girl before 12, they lose money.
A typical Agogo will have a center stage with poles. There will be 10-30 girls dancing on that stage and on the poles. The girls are usually half or fully naked. Your sitting table too might have center pole where a single girl is dancing for you. Some of them even have bathtubs where two or three girls will be rubbing each other with foam. And yes like a normal bath this bath too is without clothes.
Dances usually in most gogo’s is nothing, but just moving their pelvic area or just plain moving. There are however gogo’s who do proper pole dancing, some even do choreograph shows, and some good gogos have excellent dancers who are enjoying as well. I will be covering individual gogos bars separately.
Gogo bars want you to drink, if you want a female company you have to pay for her drink as well, she won’t sit otherwise. She’s all yours until the time you are paying for her drinks. With the drinks you get a free lap dance if you want, you get to move your hands wherever you want etc. etc.
You can spend lots of money in Agogo as its lots of fun. You spend money on drinks for yourself and the lady companion. If you like her, you will pay the bar fine and for the girl. You can go down by easy 5000-6000Baht. Me on the other hand have spent more than 12000Baht in a night and then sat on the beach for the next two days doing nothing. So be careful, you have been warned.
