Soi Cowboy


2018-06 Censorship: M-R
What's upWhere sexy and sensual are "same same but different".

While Patpong and Nana have been sitting on their laurels and stagnating Soi Cowboy upgraded with new layouts and put it ahead of the competition.  A 300mtr pedestrian only strip located between Sukhumvit Soi 21 (Asok) and Soi 23, more than 60 places of entertainment and now considered Bangkok's premiere zone for go-go bars.
With the exception of a pharmacy, a couple of pool halls, a general provisions shop and a pub called Old Dutch, every establishment in Soi Cowboy is a go-go bar or a variation of the same. 

In 2012 saw the arrival of an all Ladyboy Bar Cockatoo, something not akin to Soi-Cowboy, usually found at nightlife zone Patpong or Nana plaza
The area is named after T. G. "Cowboy" Edwards, a retired American airman who opened one of the first bars there in 1977. A tall African-American, Edwards got his nickname because he invariably wore a cowboy hat.  Over the past 30 years as numerous swanky new hotels have opened along Sukhumvit Rrd, bringing in their wake, businessmen and tourists with a hankering for the exotic.

There are no sex shows and therefore, mercifully, no "sex-show" touts. Instead the Soi is lined by "greeters", female employees who coax you into their bar.  This in itself can be fun, no high pressure strategy you get from aggressive male touts in Patpong.

Excellent: 100mtrs from MRT (subway) station Sukhumvit, 200mtrs from BTS (skytrain) station Asok [street view], as expected many taxi: car / tuktuk and motor bike await you. The intersection has a underpass via the MRT (before 12mn).

Getting in

Entrance: Soi 21 (Asok), closest from the BTS and always hectic and can be confronting. If you arrive by taxi ask them to go Soi 23, a quieter entrance and at that corner is "Old Dutch Restaurant" with outdoor seating to watch on. Most of the bars offer and outdoor veranda, here you can enjoy a drink and snack and watch the parade of passing vehicles, trolleys and tourists. Some bars have themes that the believe is their point of difference, which is often copied if it catches on.  At the Soi end  you find a few live bands that keep going all night and on the way out it can be a little fierce with taxi touting for your custom.  For more local intel try street guide Sukhumvit

Trading hours: not much on show until 8pm, as of 2006, Soi Cowboy bars switch off their outside neon lights by 1am but usually close at 2am or later if enough patrons are spending, if your really keen to kick on just ask the locals, there are some bars, slightly hidden that just keep going .. up to you
