    Red face dark side

    G day guys - I did a tour of the dark side 2 years ago and visited about 8 bars, I think
    Go Gress, Paridise, Titty Twister, Black Sheep, ***** Cat I think, can't remember them all. Most of which were air conditioned which I like. Some what a comfort creature. I am heading back to Pattaya later this year. and will probably have a few nights back on the dark side.
    Any recommendations for Bars- pretty girls and air con is good, bars can change in a few years.
    Also any restaurants recommendation would be welcomed.
    Cheers look forward in getting back for a fun time.

    I have been there a number of times. The Dark Side is very spread out (own transport is preferred) and usually has very few girls per bar. With the incredible choice that is available in Central Pattaya, its not worth the trip IMHO unless you have been there many times/for a long time and want something different, and its very hit and miss.

    Some of the bars you mention are either no longer open or have changed hands and no longer have the reputation they once had.

    For food, try Doa Bar, it is also a good base for further exploration, but personally I would recommend you spend your holiday time elsewhere.

    BTW, the above map is a 'cartoon' that gives a rough idea of how many bars there are and their general position to each other, however is not to scale and is very misleading in this respect, don't rely on it alone.

    Dear Bawdy,

    Appreciate the feed back- I will check out the Doa Bar, I will be in pattaya for 2 weeks and the Grand Final will be on during that time (the AFL). Can you recommend any
    Air condition bar in Pattaya Central? I will also send out a call for others that might have some recommendation.
    Cheers.

    Cods, I agree with Bawdy.
    Unless you have exhausted all area's of main Patts the Darkside isn't that appealing.
    I know Expats that live there but mostly go out back in LK Metro area. They have a few bars on the darkside they use during the week.

    For Air Cond. bar i would head to The Metro on LK Metro. It is closed off air cond, big screen TV plus several other TV's on side walls. Some pool tables, good staff and if you want food they have a menu from a kitchen that gets delivered.

    I don't watch sports, but I usually have breakfast at Irish Rovers on Soi LK Metro, it has heaps of flat screen TVs playing all types of sports and the aircon is cool, check it out.
