A Facebook Conversation about the Old Nana Plaza Days


I'm still waiting for the novel set in the new Nana Plaza with the character reminiscing about the bars that are gone. ie Woodstock, Hogs Breath, Big Mango; one now a closed bar with a bucking steer, Spanky's expanded into Hogs Breath displacing the expats, an upscale shorttime rooms in place of pool tables, and now there's 2 Angelwitches, and what's up with all of the ladyboys? Hanging out with Meow as she manages 11 beer bars in the Nana area, and the re-opening of G-Spot as a Gentleman's club. A little tongue in cheek history of Nana in novel form. You can do it Chris.

Write a classic book with all you have mentioned ...I'll buy it !!!
Superb insight mate, love it !!


I also have fond memories of taking a leak at Angelwitch and to my surprise having the showgirls walk directly behind me on their way to their dressing room.

Throw in some Clinton plaza ( whitehouse etc.) And some washington square and jaunt across asok to soi 33....brilliant
I like it !

Aye, many a time bathroom change.   

Thermea...oh dear ....classic Bangkok...brilliant reading and I haven't even read it yet ! LOL !!

DC 10....the oldest bar in nana ( which chris has already mentioned in one of his novels as a starting point of chapters.)

Now you can have a drink while sitting along side a jacuzzi with 4 Thai girls trying to keep covered with only soap bubbles. Some old guy walks in and tips a 1,000 baht to be shared among the girls in the tub as he does a jig. The loan shark guy comes in with his book of records, checking up on some of his inflated loans. The busty one acknowledges him a few minutes after we had already made eye contact. After her stint in the tub she waits at the bar behind me. I glance over at her and then glance at the business being conducted at the end of the bar, thinking that she might be the money man's squeeze. She turns her head as to say no, and smiles, wanting some attention....   

I could write a book of my exploits but haven't the time ...
