The famous Soi Tiger 2 girly bar complex located on Bangla road is probably the most unique of all the Soi’s in Patong. Part of the massive 5000 sqm New Tiger Entertainment Complex there is no way you could miss this outrageous three story landmark as you pass by on soi Bangla. The entire building is fitted out in a giant concrete cave decor with an impressive set of tiger sculptures overlooking the street.
The ground floor is home to Patong’s biggest beer bar complex with around 55 girly bars while the two upper floors are reserved to the Tiger Discotheque. The beer bars are fun, loud and colourful with plenty of Thai bargirls dancing on the counter. Everything is so closely packed together than the thunderous music blasting and continuous lighting make you think sometimes you are just in one giant bar.
The complex can be a little overwhelming at first but is definitely worth a visit, being hands down the best girlie bar area to visit if you want to pick one up. The sexiest girls are usually dancing in the bars the to closest the entrance but don’t hesitate to explore around a bit first, prices are rather reasonable and invariably the same at 100 Baht for a local beer, if you are new to the scene, fancy a girl and would like her company just offer her a lady drinks (around 200-240THB).
In case you get interested to bring back the girl back home with you, one needs to compensate the bar owner with what is referred to as a “bar fine”. Which will vary depending on the length of time you wish to spend with her, for an hour or two is “short time” (≥1000THB) while overnight is “long Time” (≥2000 THB). This fine does not include the service from the girl and this must be negotiated as well directly with the girl for her time.
Those looking to save a bit of money and not spend anything on a barfine can head just upstairs to the Tiger Night Club and Discotheque. Make sure to lock your valuables in your safe on arrival and that the girl leaves her ID at the reception of your hotel for added protection if you do take pick a freelancer.
