“Ago go bars..”
Reviewed March 31, 2014

If your staying in Bangkok soi cowboy is one of the places you must visit, a very entertaining street full of go go bars & bars too.. Situated not far from asoke bts skytrain station it's one of the glitzy streets full of tasty girls at the ready, although abit pricier than a normal bar down soi 4 nana it's very good entertainment & more than enough lovely girls to choose from I can say! It's were the action is & a very good place to watch the world go bye too...

“Soi Cowboy”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

If you are a fan of red light districts then Soi Cowboy in Bangkok is the place to go. It's not nearly as touristy as the Patpong Night Market and not nearly as sleazy as the Nana Entertainment Plaza. Soi Cowboy is situated in a small street with go go bars, beer bars, nightclubs and restaurants and all the rest of the bells and whistles to boot. But without the hustle and bustle and all those terrible touts. By far the best red light district in town. Highly recommendable.

“Visit, even if you are not looking for the obvious...”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

It’s a small street filled with “Go Go” bars, and strip dance bars… Some of the “go go” bars are ladyboy bars… so be careful if that’s not your cup of tea. The “go go” bars basically are nude dance bars where you will see bikini clad girls, some places fully nude also, dancing on a stage surrounded by guests. You can walk-in to enjoy the dance but you are expected to spend on drinks… Each girl has a number tag on her and you may ask any of them to join you on your table if you wish. If you find her to your liking you may take her out by paying a certain amount of money what they call as “bar fine”.

Unlike Nana Plaza, the other red-light district of Bangkok, this place looks more glamorous and has a cosmopolitan feel to it. Even if indulging in the “sin” is not your idea, you can simply take a walk down the street and just soak in ambience. Or, sit in a street side bar shipping your favourite beer and watch things unfold around you… There are authentic Thai street foods also on the offer. Its a few minutes walk from MRT Sukhumvit station. As you approach towards Sukhumvit Rd from the MRT it’s on the LHS just before the intersection.

“Excellent, worth a visit”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

Soi Cowboy is an amazing place. There are bars for every taste and every kind of person. It is very safe and very clean. There are vendors on the street selling food as well as being able to eat in the various bars. The drinks are a little more expensive but the atmosphere, music and fun seem to make the extra cost worthwhile. The street is busy with go go bars, lady boys and gays but so are most of the tourist areas in Bangkok late at night. A very enjoyable time.
