I am cool w/ one of the owners and the singer. I messed up by just popping in and not really staying too long. Another friend said people dance in there but unsure. This summer will check it out longer. Honestly , it felt a little strange to have the girl up front walk you down the long hallway. The owner that I know used to live in Thailand and has been in Cambo for about a year or so ( i think)

I quite like Secrets. The Filipino band is very good but the sound booms and echoes in the vast space. The staff are divided into greeters (in flouncy red skirts), bar staff (in dickie bows and braces), waitresses (in white tops) and hostesses (in oddly matronly-looking red and black dresses). There is also a mamasan pushing hostesses towards likely-looking customers.The cheaper end drinks are much more expensive than normal but the higher end (such as premium beers and wine) only a little bit more. The customers are mostly Pattaya trippers (behaving a bit badly) and Chinese (looking at their phones). The Secrets logo is omnipresent, on the staff uniforms, on the countless tv screens and on the walls. It is corporate and safe (which is why the Chinese like it).
I like it too. Had a good vibe in there. Nice mixture of bar/club type atmosphere. Nice addition to that street.

Because it's not a place for them to get 50c beers.
What is it a place for?
Nice wholesome gals :) it's more like a bar/club. Drinks starts at $3 so yeah..
FFS
Sounds on a par with pontoon and a shed load cheaper than a Khmer club. Not everyone in PP is here for 50p beers. Some of us would rather pay 75 cents and geta better class of sexpat to talk to
What is a shed load?

Haha, are you seriously bragging about spending $3 on a drink? Joke is on you, you rich man!
No i am not bragging you are not going to see expats or most forum users here at Secrets they are targeting the Chinese, Japanese and Korean salary men.

Would you pay $3 for a beer??

hang on, how can it be safe if the chinese are there? have you been to snooky lately. [Mod Edit: Take it down a few notches. Thanks.]
They are targeting the salary men not the Chinese construction workers like in Sihanouk. It's the construction workers in Sihanouk that's creating all the drama there

Lol yeah , this is so true. Mostly the Chinese construction workers are the one making trouble, other than that it seems just fine.
YOLO

Absolutely but I don't feel special because of it.

I agree, you won't find many normal lifers on 136 at all.
