The State of the Red-Light Address: May 2019

May 26, 2019 By bangkok7

Greetings, intrepid reader. For today’s weekly, I submit for your reading enjoyment a semblance of the current state of Patpong. If it feels like a partial retread of last week’s blurb, there’s an almost-acceptable reason. Full disclosure, my original plan was to also include some words about Nana and Cowboy, but I just couldn’t work

Patpong–The Week That Was for 19.5.2019

May 19, 2019 By bangkok7

Hey everyone, it’s me, Seven. For this week’s weekly, I’m comin atcha with a first-person narrative of my Saturday-to-Sunday in Patpong. As you may or may not know, I’m there roughly 30 days out of the month, and occasionally something noteworthy happens. Here’s my account of the last seven days: Sunday The Lord’s Day is

Patpong For Dummies, Part 1

May 12, 2019 By bangkok7

Hey guys, it’s Seven. How ya goin’? This week, I’m starting yet another series. It stemmed from a conversation I overheard on The Steakhouse Co. terrace between a bunch of sad American dudes who were crying in their beers and moaning about the events of the night. The long-and-short of it was, they went gogo

The Gayification of Patpong

May 5, 2019 By bangkok7

Last week, a guy on Twitter asked for my opinion on the alarming number of gay bars encroaching on Patpong’s territory of late. He said he’d read something about it in another “Bangkok Nightlife” blog. Personally, those blogs bore me to tears, and since the writers don’t even come to Patpong, their take on the

Patpong Gets Culture: The Candle Light Studio

April 28, 2019 By bangkok7

Last week, the good folks over at Patpong’s new art gallery—The Candle Light Studio—graciously allowed me to pop in and snap some pics of the current exhibition: Sex, Drugs & Headache Stencil, which runs until the 1st of May, when there will be an end-of-exhibit party complete with DJs, showgirls, guest artists, and other surprises.

Bangkok Bachelorhood: A Manifesto

April 21, 2019 By bangkok7

Maybe not so much a manifesto as….a winge. Happy Sunday to you, reader. If you’ve perused my previous blogs, you already know that I’ve forsaken all Western norms for a life of debauched singlehood in Thailand. And while I’m ecstatic about this decision, I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t wondered from time to

Take This Blog and Shove It, Part 2

April 14, 2019 By bangkok7

Hey everyone, it’s Seven again. Back with a deep dive (God, I hate that phrase) into someone else’s idiotic take on Bangkok. It’s the second installment of a series where I point out the flaws in a “Why I don’t like Thais/Thailand/Bangkok” blog. It would be one thing if the people who spew this nonsense

Seven on Holiday: Pattaya

April 7, 2019 By bangkok7

Greetings friend, it is I–Bangkok Seven–and I’m on vacation. But that’s not going to stop me from posting something mildly entertaining to take up 10 minutes of your Sunday, no sir. I’m still on the ball. Speaking of balls, I’m in Pattaya. Ahh, Pattaya. Jewel in the eye of the Thailand whoremonger. Paradise for part-time

Bon jour internet, J’mappelle Seven. If you’re one of the 10 people who read this page regularly, you’re probably thinking “Aw, no, not another series!” Maybe I missed my calling as a network TV show creator, because I can whip out series ideas like nobody’s business. Here’s the next one coming down the pipe. I’ll

The Strip Patpong: My Personal Goodbye

March 24, 2019 By bangkok7

You know the old saying. All good things must come to an end. It happened to Electric Blue, it happened to Bada Bing. It happened to my short-time girl last night. And now it’s The Strip’s turn to draw the final curtain. As Patpong gogos continue to buckle under the weight of change and get
