As I said Pattaya is quiet, many of the beerbar complexes are not what they were, but on several occasions my friends have been quoted 2000 LT off average bargirls, and this was late like 1am-2am time. Also the other night took a wander around LK Metro, in One of the gogos a girl wanted 4000 LT at 01:30! Me and my friend just laughed.
Also that night had a drink in Queen club, wasn't very busy at 2am, I watched the poledancer on stage, very talented lady, bought her a drink, with no intention that she's free to BF, nice chat, agency girl on 1600 baht a night, her BF is 2500! Obviously the bar doesn't want her leaving, in fact nor does she, for research purposes we asked how much LT, she said 7000! But don't believe everything as gospel from a Thai, I finally got to the bottom of it, she has a farang boyfriend, no doubt sponsoring her monthly, so she only does the poledancing.
Last night I took a walk around Walking Street, very busy, but it's all Chinese tour groups, they follow their guides walking up and down, but not spending any money in the bars, Sapphire has some decent girls, so has Bacarra, ended up in Livingdoll Showcase, one of the welcome girls took a shine to me, so went in bought her a drink, and ended up BF her, 1000 baht after 1am, she was happy with 2k LT.
