The Nana Entertainment Plaza is a u-shaped complex, with a single opening on the western side, and consists three floors of go-go bars, strip clubs, ladyboy bars and beer bars. It started out as a restaurant area in the late 1970s. During the early 1980s go-go bars etc. began to appear and gradually replaced the restaurants.
The first (ground) floor consists of a large courtyard where a number of beer bars are centrally located. A great place to sit and people watch. Around the outside of the courtyard are go-go bars featuring pole dancers. The uppers floor of the Nana Entertainment Plaza are where the more sexually exciting activities are to be found. Live ping-pong and lesbian shows are a feature. Naked girls dancing on the stage to loud throbbing music are common place.
Bar fining a lady or ladyboy at a bar in the Nana Entertainment Plaza could be anything between 500 and 1,000 Baht depending on the quality and specialty of the bar worker. On top of the barfine the worker will usually offer you a short-time and long-time rate for their services. These services can take place in short-time rooms available in the complex, usually 350 Baht or at your accommodation. Remember a lot of times the way you look and your ethnicity goes into how she determines how much she’ll charge you. Don’t get offended, it’s just business.
