Heading to Bangkok; Heads UP, No bar fine at bunnies bar

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

Heading to Bangkok; Heads UP, No bar fine at bunnies bar

:thumb: :thumb: :beer3:
You did read that headline correctly, it’s not a mistake, it’s not clickbait, it’s exactly what it says. From this Monday, July 10, Bangkok Bunnies on the ground floor of Nana Plaza will not be charging customers a bar fine to take a dancer out the bar.

There’s no minimum spend, there’s no minimum quota of lady drinks you need to buy the dancing dollybird you’d like to get to know better. There’s no anything as long as you are in the bar and having a drink.

So next week if you are in Bunnies having a drink and one of the girls takes your fancy and you both work out the details of your night ahead, then off you go without having to go into your wallet and hand over any cash to the bar.

if u didn't make it over,ur to late.

After just three days, the owner of Bangkok Bunnies has pulled the plug on his experiment of not charging customers a bar fine for a dancer to accompany them out the bar.

From tonight, Thursday 13th July, the 700 baht bar fine fee is back.

Speaking with the owner earlier today he said since Monday bar fines had doubled but drink sales were way down.

Money aside, his reasons for bringing back the charges come from both staff and customers “ripping the piss” for the want of a better description – and note, those are MY words, not the Dutchman’s.

Dancers asking customers to bar fine their friends so they could go home was rife on Wednesday night as was customers showing no “good faith” by drinking a bottle of water before leaving with three ladies.

i think bars should include similar deals though, by spending so much in the bar you get a free barfine or something, that be cool lol

I tried this in Loco bar shortly after I opened it. Customers could take a girl out free after buying her a minimum of three ladydrinks.
For some reason some customers resented having to buy three compulsory ladydrinks, and there were some complaints.
They seemed to prefer the standard system of at least one ladydrink plus a barfine. Even though the three ladydrink system was cheaper.
These days quite a few bars allow customers to barfine a girl without having to buy her a ladydrink or often without even having to go into the bar to have a drink themselves. The customers are allowed to just proposition the girls sitting outside the front of the bar, pay the barfine and go. Personally I strongly dislike this practice, the bar is then just offering girls for sex like a meat market.

I don't understand why it's that different.

One is dressed up as a deli, the other is a butcher shop, but you're selling the same thing.

Does the customer buying them a drink sanitise it?

I knew someone would bite...
Generally I wouldn't reply to a vladimir quip, you are far too clever to clash with online, but it's early morning and I'm feeling chilled.
There seems to be two general views about hostess bars here. The first is yours. That a hostess bar is a place who's primary source of income is from offering girls for sex in return for money.
The second view is that a hostess bar is a bar that gets 95% of its income from drinks bought by customers for themselves and for the girls. Customers who come in with no intention of barfining a girl and who just want to drink, flirt with and sometimes grope the girls. In a typical night there might be 30 customers and 2 barfines.
So yes barfines are possible but they form a small part of the cash flow of the bar. And interestingly, about 50% of the girls going out on barfines don't have sex. The customers either just want a companion for eating, dancing, bar cruising etc, or the guy is too drunk or tired for sex or he wants a girl to cuddle at night. This information is based on me asking a few hundred barfined girls on the following morning how it went.

Mmm, thanks for a good-natured answer.

I think you are assuming my view is that rent-outs are the bar's primary source.

It's not. I'm not interested in the financial aspect at all. (Perhaps a pie-chart would be appropriate, LOL)

Having the girls at the bar is a hook to get customers in, I think we all agree on that if we are honest.

There's a big difference between rent-outs and a friendly environment, and I'm guessing you have two groups of customers, one which primarily like the friendly (beautiful) environment and seldom rents, and one which rents out frequently.

My question was not income-related, but rather why dressing something up makes it more acceptable.

If a 5-star hotel offers 'escort'facilities as opposed to the Steung Meanchey late-night chop-shop mode, it's still the same thing, imho.

A monkey in silk, they say.

I'm not passing any moral judgment it's more a question of perception/semantics (and no, I'm not an anti-Semantic)

you forgot the middle ground, i have went to your bar a couple of times, i have drank in your bars and spend on average a benjamin each time, there is a market for people like me who wants a good time / feel at the bar and a good poke back in the hotel, if a girl cant be barfined i wont be coming back either,

to me all bars are about the same, some may argue that this bar makes the best long island tea but the meat makes the difference tbh
