The striptease club scene in Bangkok is a mix of the European and Asian styles. You got your usual shady establishments where you rack up ridiculous receipts for god-knows-what. Those are usually recommended by tuk-tuk or cab drivers, who get a cut of what you get scammed for. There are also go-go clubs such as King’s Castle at Patpong Soi 1, which are more of an auction house than a bar.
What’s the difference between a go-go club and a striptease club in Bangkok? A go-go club is a striptease club without the stripping. Some bars require you to pay a fine to “reserve” a girl for yourself, so she doesn’t approach other tables. It’s basically a date for the night once you’ve paid. Some places have also venues in the back, which you can use after brief negotiations with your girl. Most will ask for $100 but getting down to $50 is quite possible. The Dollhouse (http://dollhouse-agogo.com/) at Sukhumvit Soi 23 and Baccara (http://www.baccarabarbangkok.com/) at the same address are highly recommended. Try the Villa Club (http://www.thevillabkk.com/) at 598 Pracha Uthit Rd for a more upscale, gentlemen’s club experience.
Bangkok is also famous for its legendary blowjob bars (BJ Bars). I heard even someone saying that going to Bangkok without having been in a Blowjob Bar is the same as visiting Italy without eating pizza. Despite their fame they are usually a bit hidden. Most of them are situated in and around the Sukhumvit area. Look around in the red-light districts for girls standing with “free BJ with first drink” signs. Those specimens might not be straight 10s but it’s definitely an unusual beer-drinking experience. The idea is simple and the name says all: as a guest you can order a beer and after or while drinking you will receive an oral treat from a bar lady. The girls can do the job even in front of the other guests. But if you are the shy type of guy you can proceed the session in the more intimate and discrete setting of a private room. The prices price range from 500 to 1,300 Baht and if you wish you can even have your relief without a rubber.
