Hollywood on Soi Easy off Bangla Road, is entrance free and drinks are around 150 baht, but you’ll have to book your tables around the dance floor, from 2000 baht up if you want to be seated. The disco which seems to be popular on week ends is on the second floor above Soi Easy bars and is divided in two large rooms. First room has lots of young Thai girls having fun around central tables, while the dance floor itself is in the second room. I have never seen so many security guys in a disco, it’s kind of intimidating. Don’t come before midnight, that when the fun really starts.Soi Easy is the closest Soi from the beach, and not as popular as its neighbours. Apart from few usual indoor beer bars, the main attractions are the Hollywood Disco and a long time well known place called Aussie Bar on the second floor, and ‘The Secret’ a Go Go bar hidden in the back trying to be a bit more upmarket. Actually the girls on stage, advertised as ‘models from Bangkok’, put on a decent dancing show.
However it gets busy after eleven and some bars did a serious decoration effort such as Sands (photo). Then you have the usual palette of funny names: ‘Easy Bar’, ‘Enjoy Bar’, ‘Night Light Bar’ and well, ‘Blow Job Bar 2′. Must be hard to come up with something new in this business. For some reason few arcade games appeared around the usual pool tables.
Entrance to ‘The Secret a Go Go’ is 500 baht, but if you put on your ‘very disappointed’ face, you might be able to enter for free but drinks are on the expensive side.
