SOI COWBOY BARS
Soi Cowboy is located off Sukhumvit road on Soi Cowboy (Soi 21). It's a small strip of about 20 Go Go bars (see Bar List, below).
The main advantage of Soi Cowboy is the lack of customers as compared to other nightspots. The atmosphere is much tamer than that of Nana Plaza, Soi Cowboy's main competition, and the women tend to less professional and less attractive.
Hours of operation are between 7 PM until 2 AM. The bars are not open during the daytime. Stage dancing does not start until 7:30 PM. To see the best selection of women, try to arrive by 8 PM.
All bars are closed during elections and during the King's birthday.
How to Get There
Soi Cowboy is located right off Sukhumvit Road, between Soi 21 and Soi 23. All meter taxi drivers know where it is.
From the Nana Hotel. Walk up Sukhumvit until you get to Soi 21 or 23, then turn left and Soi Cowboy is a few minutes up the street.
Via the BTS. Exit Asoke, then walk down Soi 21 or 23 (past Asoke Plaza) to Soi Cowboy.
With the exception of Bacarra, Long Gun, and Rawhide, there is no nudity in Soi Cowboy bars. The standard uniform for the dancers is either bikini or a mini skirt with a top. Ther are no sex shows in any of the bars.

*Considered to be one of the best bars in Soi Cowboy -- get there before 10 PM in order to get a good seat.
