A review of The Filling Station hostess bar/clip joint on Street 282

Post by Sweet Lemon » Sat Aug 24, 2019 12:08 pm

Went to this bar last night with a friend. It's located in a villa on Street 282 in Boeng Keng Kang. There was a power outage so we didn't even go inside we just sat in the courtyard.

Staff is all Filipina. None are particularly attractive. We ordered two beers, normal prices, and I was asked to sign the chit, as they do in the Philippines. No problem.

Then we offered to buy a drink for two of the hostesses. They got beers and presented me a bill that said "beer $9, beer $9, beer $9 = total $27" and asked me to sign it. I said "$9 to buy you beer?" and they said yes.

I had never been there before but had read on Tripadvisor that the lady drinks there cost $4.50. I told her "I was here last week and it was $4.50." She nonchalantly ripped up the bill and gave me a new bill that said "beer $4.50, beer $4.50, beer $4.50 = $13.50"

I said "we're only buying two of you drinks, not three." She ripped up the $13.50 bill and handed me one that said $9. I signed it and paid it and we left soon after.

left soon after never to return again.

Good advertising for a bar in a very competitive industry.

I went there earlier this year and it was empty and they all just pounced on us and started begging for drinks after the first hello. The were all ugly or fat or both. Once they realised they were getting nowhere with us they all went back outside sharpish and we were left completely alone.

Complete waste of time. We left after one drink.

I am surprised they are still in business with those rents in BBK1.

Was it you who left the trip advisor review Doc? Seems like my visit, yours, whoever wrote the trip advisor review, and sweet lemons were all the same experience, one drink and leave. I wonder how they stay open, that villa can't be cheap to rent in the middle of BKK1

They're on the Badoo app one of them called me up and told me to come down and bar fine her.
I looked the reviews online and didn't show up.

Maybe it's subsidized by card games played by tourists wearing nice hats.

Which begs the question: why do these fugly filipinas think they can charge double for lady drinks to a khmer girl?

I should mention they also charge a 10% service charge on everything. I signed one chit saying $6 and another saying $9 and when I got the bill they told me I owed $16.50.

The three lady drink beers originally priced at $9 each would have cost $29.70 with the service charge.
