    The top GoGo Bars in Bangkok

    Bangkok is packed with tons of Go Go bars, filled with everything from bright and vibrant spots to dark and mysterious locations that are best avoided. The bars are scattered around 3 main ‘red-light district areas’ – Soi Cowboy, Nana Plaza and Patpong. As you enter inside, you can expect to witness dim lights, attractive girls dancing provocatively at every corner and buzzing music. Generally, customers buy drinks for the go-go girls. If you are interested in a girl, make sure to inform the waitress to bring her over to you. If you want to take her out of the bar, you must pay a ‘bar fine’ that varies per venue (600 THB+). Most go-go bars do not accept credit cards, so always bring cash! If your curious mind is begging for you to visit a go-go bar, read on below to discover the top 5 first-time friendly and popular go-go bars in Bangkok!

    With six Rainbow bars in Nana Plaza (and one nearly ready to open on Soi Cowboy), let’s take a closer look at each bar. The first thing to understand is that none of the Rainbow bars are now majority owned by the original owner, a brother and sister team that mostly got out of the game during Covid. What you may remember as Rainbow 2 or 3 are now very different today.
    • Rainbow 1 (formerly Pigtails)
      Associating a gogo bar with a pig is never good for business, but, in this case, the name was warranted, as the “talent” on stage really were a bunch of porkers. The name may have changed, but the line-up hasn’t.
    • Rainbow 2 (formerly smaller Rainbow 2)
      Enlarged during last year’s renovation, Rainbow 2 has yet to recapture the vibe or the trade of the original, which was overwhelmingly Japanese gawking at (and frequently getting away with making hidden videos) of thin, young ladies on stage. Now the stage is huge and largely empty and the Japanese have gone elsewhere.
    • Rainbow 3 (formerly Enter)
      After a brief fling with trying to replicate the original – which had the most average girls of all the Rainbows – owner Tee has gone back to the Enter formula: one-third women and two-thirds ladyboys.
    • Rainbow 4 (formerly Rainbow 5)
      Don’t try to figure out which bar was R4 and R5, as they’ve changed names faster than a game of Three Card Monty. But Rainbow 4 now, located to the left of its original spot, caters to Japanese and guys who look Japanese. If that’s not you, head to Rainbow 5.
    • Rainbow 5 (formerly Twister, formerly Rainbow 4)
      While Tee is seemingly buying up every Nana Plaza bar that becomes available, his black magic hasn’t touched Rainbow 5 yet. On weekends, R5 feels very much like R4 did 15 years ago, and that’s a good thing. It might be because some of the same mamasans who were there 15 years ago are still barking at the girls today.
    • Rainbow 69 (formerly Casanova ladyboy bar)
      It’s tiny, and has few ladies. Half the seats are so close to the door, you can get high from the ganja fumes on the middle floor walkway.
