The real snake dancer show has returned to Bangkok at The Strip Bar on Patpong 2. Apparently they will run the show every Friday night and it appears to be a popular affair.
Anyone who books the Hangover Tour will of course be able to visit the bar and see the show, as long as it’s on a friday night.
The Show lasts just a few minutes and is repeated on the hour.
The good news is the show is FREE – there is no cover charge to go in and with beers at just 130 THB this bar does seem very reasonable. Other show bars like London calling charge 180 THB for a beer.
The strip is a small and friendly bar with maybe 30 girls located at the Silom end of Patong 2
Shows start at 10pm but they do offer a free drink before 9pm.
See you there on Friday!
So many people on the Hangover tour want to know about the White Lion Bar featured in the film. They wonder is this a real bar that they can visit on the tour.
The truth is the White Lion Bar was a mock up for the movie created on Soi 7/1 Sukhumvit. The bar was not actually a real bar at all but just a temporary facade built on the side of a then empty wall, now a hotel. Sadly there is nothing remaining.
Was there ever a bar called the White Lion? The first real go go bar catering to ex-pats was called the GOLD LABEL and was located on what is now know as Soi Cowboy although in those days (back in the early 1970’s) it was know as Soi Gold Label. The movie makers may have had this bar in mind when creating the White Lion since Gold Label is now the name of a popular brand of whiskey.
Going back even further to the 1960’s if you went to Pat Pong , the then main nightlife area of Bangkok, the girls were not located inside the bars but were outside on the street. Customers would have call the girls to come into the bars to have a drink with them. Some old hands may remember these days and how different Bangkok was as a city back then.
In the movie the White Lion is the scene of riot in which the bar and a large part of the street is burnt down as you can see from the pictures below.
The filming of this scene took quite some time but in the final cut the whole thing was edited out and is seen only briefly in flash backs.
As you can see from the pictures the bar was completely destroyed so no While Lion remains.
Aussies will be happy to know right next door is a famous Australian Pub called the Down Under Bar. The owners told me they watched the filming with great interest, and got to see all the actors from the movie.
While shooting the riot scene a girl took off her underwear and threw them into the crowd which the bar owner managed to catch!
The knickers have been kept as a proud souvenir of the filming of the Hangover2 movie in Bangkok.
