If you mean Boyz Boys Boyz, well I have one more reason not to go there.

For a "developing" country, Thailand does reasonably well at keeping buses, trains, shopping centres, cafes and so on smoke free. Since they have the 2000 baht fine signs and dedicated smoking areas, I haven't encountered smoking on the beach either.

A few gogo bars which may have to pay off the law for their core activities permit smoking.

If serious about this, I suppose we could occasionally walk into gogo bars that have smokers, tell them we're not buying a drink in a smokey bar, then leave. Eventually they might realise permitting smoking gains some customers and loses others.

But, even for someone who detests smoking, it's rarely a problem.

I don't believe that excuse for a second. That's as ridiculous as Trump's usual spin on things. Even if he is absolutely right, why does he have to be smoking along with permitting the boys to smoke?

No I mean Boyz Music.

It’s the new place opened up where Cafe Royale used to be. Coincidentally it is owned or run by BBB, a place I also refuse to go into whilst they charge 350 baht for a drink, which is the same as the big clubs in BKK.

Which 'big clubs' in Bangkok are as cheap as Baht 350?

Poor wording. I was trying to compare BBB in Pattaya with the larger gogo bars in Soi Twilight which are now the same price, 350 baht.
