On Missing Thailand While in Thailand: Phuket

July 21, 2019 By bangkok7

Of all the places I’ve lived in Thailand, from the jungle to the coast to the big city, I prefer Bangkok. And after 7 years in this glorious metropolis, (gloriopolis for short, copyright BKK7) my love for it hasn’t waned. But I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss the laid-back style of smaller

Seven’s Catch-22: When Tourists Don&#8217...

July 14, 2019 By bangkok7

It’s true. Every once in a blue moon, I run across a tourist in the red-light who isn’t a complete idiot. If I had to guess, I’d say it’s somewhere around one in every two hundred. In situations like this, I admit I don’t know how to act. I’m befuddled. Typically, I move through the

The Interview The Post Refused to Publish

July 7, 2019 By bangkok7

A while back, I spoke with an insider who hinted that someone over at the Post might be willing to publish a story about the monger known as Bangkok Seven, and would I be interested. I said I’d be amiable only if I was quoted verbatim, with no editing or commentary. But once the interview

On Missing Thailand While in Thailand: Krabi

June 23, 2019 By bangkok7

I miss Krabi. Now that I’m going on 7 years as a cosmopolitan Bangkok man (Bangkoksmopolitan, copyright BKK7), I’ve started to pine for southern life. Don’t get me wrong—I love the Bangkok red-lights, and the huge malls, great restaurants, and farang-friendly fare. I’m a city boy at heart. But I have to admit, there was

Gogo Dancer Profile: Nuiy

June 16, 2019 By bangkok7

Every once in a while, a gogo dancer comes along whose talent and/or hotness deserves special recognition. A hall-of-famer who puts all others to shame. Today’s article is a tribute to one of those girls. Her name is Nuiy and she dances at Glamour in Patpong. Nuiy has the body of a goddess, and that’s

Patpong: Just The Food

June 9, 2019 By bangkok7

Hey everyone. Seven here. So, you’re probably already aware of the red light district called Patpong. If you’re not, A—what rock have you been living under and B—get your shit together. If you are, you probably know its main draw-slash-claim to fame: namely, gogo bars and naughty shows that’d make Caligula blush. Oh and you

Happy Birthday, Steakhouse Co.

June 2, 2019 By bangkok7

Saturday was the one-year anniversary of the opening of The Steakhouse Co. in Patpong. To celebrate, they threw a birthday bash for themselves: all-you-can-eat surf n’ turf plus two hours of free-flow beer and wine for 999b all-in. It was, in a word, spectacular. If you didn’t go, here’s what you missed… I arrived with

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
