I go to gogobars and pay gogobar drinkprices to watch boys in underwear or at least shirtless.
Thank you again SP55. It doesn't make much sense to me to open, or reopen, a go-go bar without go-go boys. What are they expecting people to do?

While we all would like the go-go bars to open, in my opinion it would make much better sense to open when there are at least a few go-go boys - actually on the stage - and then see how it goes. If they start doing well, start hiring more go-go boys and freelancers. But why open a go-go bar if you can't provide at least some of what people expect when going to a go-go bar. Who is going to pay to drink in an empty bar? Definitely not me.

A little bit more info:

Last night BoyzBoyzBoyz was closed. From what I understand the bar will from now on only be open on Fridays and Saturdays. Unsure about Sundays. The BBB disco was closed. I guess they follow the same opening schedule.

Toyboys was closed again yesterday when I had a look about 9 pm. They seem to have irregular openings.

Castro was also closed. Don't know why.

Cupidol open but not as a gogobar. A handful of dressed boys sat outside on the patio.

Niceboys had 12 boys in underwear on stage yesterday. They seem to be the gogobar with the highest number of boys every evening.

The go-go bar situation does not seem very promising. My guess is there simply are not enough customers for the bars to be profitable. Based on the posts I'm reading, there are only two go-go bars in Pattaya that seem to currently be succeeding - Niceboys and Winner. I can only hope the go-go bar scene will improve once tourism is open to farang once again - whenever that might be.

Oh well, at least there are still a couple go-go bars in operation, so all is not lost.

What are the customer numbers like when you go to these bars?

The latter point is probably key.
A fairly commonly expressed view is that expats are more likely to go to Sunnee and Jomtien, whilst Boystown, which relies more on tourists. From what I have seen over the years, that's probably true.

I hope things pick up in time to save more of the gogo bars.
Nice Boys really isn't my cup of tea, as scruffy out of shape lads covered in tattoos really don't float my boat.
Winner Boys has had the best selection of Sunee gogo boys for a few years, but management seems to be letting it slip, leaving the stage empty & so on.
So I'd like to see plenty of competition.
