Update to Secrets Bar & Hotel Raid Leads to Foreigner’s Arrest, Links to Websites Disclosed

By Pattaya Times Staff Sources: Crime Suppression Division, Howard Miller Interviewed by Stickman 19.06.2012

Pattaya Times Editor's Note: The raid and arrest on Pattaya Secrets Bar on Walking Street is unfortunate because in it widely accepted that in the "Red Light" designated areas of Walking Street and nearby PattayaLand and BoysTown offer adult entertainment and nightlife. The raid most likely occurred following reports to NGOs in Thailand and the national police that Pattaya Secrets Bar was openly stating on its websites sexual services were offered in the comments by postings in the forums. Also, the manger-on-duty was a foreigner. Operating a bar with hostesses and bar girls openly in Thailand is prohibited for foreigners under Thai law.

Pattaya Bar Hours Extended; 24-Hour Bars May Be Possible Soon

Pattaya bars, Go-Gos, nightclubs, karaoke parlors, beer bars, discos and late night restaurants are now allowed to remain open until wee hours of the morning for now - and maybe even for 24 hours soon. Popular Pattaya Mayor Itthiphol Kunplome made the announcement today in response to the thriving tourism demands on the party city voiced by bar owners and workers. Even places like the new Hilton Pattaya will benefit because many arriving international guests still operate in Pattaya on the timezone they came from and are looking for something to do when they arrive late, said the Mayor's foreign business adviser.

Improvements in the most unlikely of places: There are a number of go-go bars around Fun Town that have managed to remain open, and presumably proved viable as business entities, without ever inspiring me as a customer. This, of course, is a purely personal viewpoint, and doesn’t mean I’m right. It’s just I could never figure out how they attracted sufficient custom to stay open. I sometimes have a feeling mediocrity is rewarded, and not just in the bar scene.

Another pleasant into the valley Sunday: Having been writing about the Pattaya nightlife scene for a decade now, I know it’s easy to become jaded and cynical, so it’s nice when I have the opportunity to spend an evening in the company of people who do not necessarily frequent the fleshpots of Fun Town as regularly as they might like. This was the case on a recent Sunday night when a well-known Bangkok-based writer (whose name shall not be revealed here), his friend from Los Angeles, and I, spent a few pleasant hours trawling through some of the go-go’s on Walking Street. Their observations provided a fresh perspective on an old subject
