Cactus Bar in Soi Cowboy - Still Independently Owned

The Cactus gogo bar in Soi Cowboy is one of the last small independent bars. It's ran by Cactus John, who prides himself in being a bit of a gourmet cook.
He serves up one item on Tuesdays and Thursdays, different each time. This time is was a massive burger which had a touch of horseradish along with homemade fries and a bowl of leach & potato soup, which also had a touch of spiciness to it.
You can wash it all down with a wide selection of Belgium beer while watching nude dancers on stage.
Its a rather funky little bar, a little like the old Hog's Breath Bar in Nana Plaza before Spankys took over that space.

And as Cactus John says, the more you drink, the prettier the girls look. (The prettier and slimmer girls come out after the meal is near conclusion.)
And the music is setup by John himself, and its never the same.

I know Cactus John personally. He is a great cook, a great host and a great guy. There is definitely only one Cactus John. What a character! I have linked to this story from my website. Cheers!
