“RACISM AT IT`S BEST!!!”
Review of New Wave Pool Bar

New Wave Pool Bar
Ranked #99 of 158 Nightlife in Bangkok
Attraction details
Reviewed April 7, 2013

We went to check out this place (New Wave Pool Bar) earlier this evening. Before we could enter,.a lady at the door blocked us and made it very clear to us that they dont allow Africans/Dark-skinned people inside the bar (reminded me of the old Apartheid Era in SA & NAM ). We are 3 African guys who chose Thailand as our preffered holiday destination.

We have been here for exactly 1 week now,.....and have experienced nothing but the best, the warm, welcoming smiles,very very friendly Thai people,..an atmosphere filled with a sense of integrity & dignity,love and respect for life, peace, ....the works.

We ere really havin a ball of a time till we came aross this palce.......no-the-less,....i`m sure there are better place awaiting in this fun-filled city. I honestly would`nt recommend it to any Namibian neither SouthAfrican....

If pool is your thing, with doses of big screen live sports, then this great place to visit at least once. Drinks especially beers are reasonably priced considering the area (Nana) that it's located in.
The attractive ladies in short dresses, playing pool, are the welcome bonus in this bar.

It cost 20baht per game and the winner keeps the table. Tables could do with some updating but i guess the volume of games is the issue. Open from early afternoon (best and time to get some undisturbed quick practice) until 2am, this place sizzles at around 7pm onwards.

The friendly and sporty atmosphere of the place is really something to experience at least once in Bangkok.

This place is always on my agenda whenever I visit Bangkok. Whether to meet a friend for pool, over some drinks / food or park yourself at the bar and do some 'sight-seeing' - it has much to cater for the customer. Pool players will love the challenge - most are pretty good - even the ladies! As they say here, winner stays! Drink prices are still reasonable although I have noticed that the price of mixers (they only give you a set per bottle of liquor ordered) have gone up which with a few friends drinking together, can add up quite abit. Strange but true. Better off ordering 2 bottles of liquor instead so you get 2 sets of mixers (am not talking about beer bottles). But generally, if you are looking for good company, good music, good vibes and a happy crowd, this is a good place to start. Yes, they open from lunch. The only cons I have this time round is the air-conditioning! Could do with some servicing I guess.

With the popularity of pool growing in Bangkok there have been several pool halls popping up. New Wave was one of the first movers into this territory and it is need of an update. The tables are small compared to its competitors and the cues need to be updated. The staff is friendly and the drinks are reasonably priced and it opens early in the afternoon.
