Los Angeles, California

Former midwesterner, professional guy living and working in Los Angeles. I enjoy travelling to new cities - I visit museums, botanical gardens, ... during the day, and check out the gay nightlife in the evenings.

  • Lively and Friendly Restaurant and Night Club
    Popular with the ladies, but everyone is welcome. On my first visit for Sunday dinner, there was a nice mix of gender, age,… DJ was spinning some tunes but not too loud to prevent talking with friends. You can come here for dinner, drinks and snacks, late night on the dance floor or weekly special events. There is inside seating (two main rooms), or outside patio. Service was very friendly, and everything I ordered was very tasty – appetizers: bacon wrapped stuffed jalapenos; truffle mac n cheese. Entrée: Almond encrusted halibut. I plan on coming back : )

  • Popular Upscale Gay Restaurant and Wine Bar
    Le Isaan opened in late 2014 just down the street from Babylon gay sauna complex. It has quickly become popular with both local Thai, expat and visiting gay travelers. Restaurant has upscale design and was recently featured in one of Bangkok’s culture magazines. Menu offers both Isaan (Northeast Thai) and Western dishes. Be advised – Isaan cuisine can be spicy, and includes traditional dishes such as green papaya salad and grilled salmon. Western dishes includes pork, chicken and lambchop house specialties. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner, front outside and inside seating. In addition – the back patio is beautifully lit at night and is available for dinner or late night snacks and appetizers. A great spot to socialize just outside of Babylon. The Thai Manager Lek is very friendly and can customize most requests.

  • Great Gay Hotel in the Center of Silom
    Just finished my 6th visit to Bangkok, but first stay at Tarntawan. I had previously stayed at the renowned Babylon Sauna, but gave Tarntawan a try since it is a close walk to everything in gay Silom. The stay here was wonderful, for many reasons. First, the staff is extremely friendly and eager to please. The hotel is not "new" but very well cleaned and maintained. As previously mentioned – LOCATION. It is a quick 5 minute walk from Tarntawan to the gay restaruants/karaoke bars on Soi 4, night clubs on Soi 2, or boy bars on Soi Twilight. Tips: (1) The Japanese restaurant DAIMASU on Soi 6 is a great spot for dinner, popular with locals (reviewed on gaycities). (2) The associated massage is good for legit rub downs. (3) For quick Thai food, take a right on Suriwong when leaving the hotel and the very next right alley has a restaurant – Authentic Thai. We ate there a lot – good for an affordable lunch before the day’s adventures. (4) Hotel can find a local taxi for you just when you need it, but avoid reserving the official “hotel” taxi – this can cost a lot more.

  • Renovated Host Bar
    Used to be a go-go bar, now renovated into a popular host bar. A good place to stop for a visit, buy some of the boys a drink, and watch all the street action of Sunee Plaza. Outside seating is conventiently located with streetside views, and a relaxed atmosphere, although good opportunity to get to know some of the local Pattaya Thai boys.

  • Popular Boy Bar
    The most popular boy bar in Sunee Plaza, and over the past few years rated best boy bar in Pattaya by local gay magazines. It’s a table top bar – boys dance on small raised platforms. There are numerous themed special nights – Tarzan night (the boys wear loin cloths), wrestling night, … There are many boys here – ranging from petite to athletic, but all young – 18 to early twenties. Open 7 days a week. Opening time is 8pm although all the boys don’t show up by 9pm. However, as with any boy bar, it’s always good to show up early since the most handsome boys are always the first to be taken out by customers.

  • Best Sunee Plaza Guesthouse
    Long running gay guesthouse in gay Sunee Plaza neighborhood. Rooms are small but clean and comfortable. Owners are eager to assist new travelers get their bearings. Thai staff also friendly. This is also a good place for affordable breakfast and lunch to meet fellow gay travelers from around the world. Only caution - it's a few blocks walk from the host bars and boy bars in Sunee Plaza - if you bring a young lad home with you. Doable, but a few blocks walk.
