Pattaya’s Soi Diana entertainment area can provide a whole host of entertainment options for the punter who’s looking to venture away from the Walking Street gogo scene and explore a different side of Pattaya nightlife. There are plenty of Pattaya girls on Soi Diana and, yes, they’re just dying to meet you.
Many of Pattaya’s small streets, known as Soi, are nicknamed after prominent landmarks. Soi Diana is no exception. Soi Diana is officially called Soi 13 and that’s what the street sign indicates. But the stretch of Soi 13 that runs east off of Pattaya 2 Road towards Soi Buakhao is named after The Diana Inn that sits on the corner.
Most punters that are new to the Pattaya scene never make it past Walking Street. Who can blame them? There’s plenty to keep you occupied in Pattaya’s most famous and popular entertainment district. But take a stroll up Soi Diana and you won’t be disappointed either.
Just head up the Soi anytime after 8 pm and you’re in for a treat. Soi Diana is lined with numerous beer bars, restaurants, hotels, a coyote bar, and an air conditioned pool hall, just to name a few of the many options. If you hang around until 11pm, the street will really be rockin’, especially on the week ends.
Here is just a sampling of the entertainment on Soi Diana:
Kiss Food and Drink .As you head into the Soi, you’ll see Kiss Food and Drink right across from the Diana Inn. Kiss is famous for its excellent Thai food that’s reasonably priced. This first part of Soi 13 is tame enough.
Beefeater Restaurant. Next up comes Beefeater Restaurant where you can grab a delicious steak before you head farther into the Soi for your night of adventure. Better to get a good meal in before the night’s activities.
Papgayo Coyote Bar. Just a little further along, on the right will be Soi Diana’s only coyote bar. Papagayo is a popular Pattaya coyote bar with the typical glass walls facing the street. There are some dynamite looking girls here and it’s worth a peek.
Soi Diana Beer Bar Complex. Just past the Papagayo starts the beer bar section of Soi Diana. This is where you can find the parties, just look for the balloons. There are a bunch of Pattaya beer bars, all under the same roof on the right hand side of the street. I think there are at least 12 of them. Definitely enough to keep you busy for a while.
Nid Beer Bar. Nid deserves a special mention. This place throws more parties than any other beer bar on Soi Diana. It’s a favorite with Scandinavians, especially the boys at the maipenrai forum. At least one wedding reception has been held here. If there’s a party at Nid Bar, don’t miss it.
On the left hand side of the street there are a bunch of other beer bars. The Luck Bar and Jim’s Beer Bar are popular. Take your pick. The beer bars on the left hand side of the street are smaller and the girls are even more eager to meet you.
Megabreak Pool Hall. Take a break from the Pattaya beer bar action and stop in for an air conditioned game of pool.
They have weekly double elimination and handicapped 9-ball competitions. Free food and table time before the tournaments.
Megabreak is another place to look for Pattaya freelancers who will wear you out on the pool table.
Also a good place to watch sporting events. They have fifteen big-screen TV’s.
Still haven’t seen enough Pattaya beer bars? Keep heading up the Soi. After Megabreak starts another area of individual Pattaya beer bars. There are at least another half dozen places with typical beer bar set up. Stop in at The New Orn Bar 2 or The All Bar One. Both have friendly bar girls and reasonably priced beer.
I’m telling you guys, you need to check out this area of town. You won’t be disappointed. If you make it all the way up to Soi Buakho, you’ll run smack into Oasis GoGo and the LK Entertainment District. But that’s another story. Enjoy!
