Bars, clubs and pubs oh my!
I'm a fairly generous bloke,maybe a bit of a pushover and certainly can have a lack of judgement when the beers are necked.
This all leads to regular nights out where i have a bar bill for 3000 baht and i think to myself "I've only had 6 Leo's? How did this happen?":shock1:
I've discussed this with a friend who travels to Thailand regularly and he says if I buy a girl a drink,I should ask for 'bar price'.
Is this accepted? Seems to me the girl would pretty pissed off if shes not making any money from the drink.
This same guy told me when he stayed in Chiang Mai for 3 months he would have a bottle of whiskey he bought from 7-11 kept behind the bar.So he'd go and drink from that every night.
I don't know if this is actually true and i would imagine he'd be extremely unpopular with the bar owner and staff.
I've also noticed some ex-pats that live in Chiang Mai and are regulars in some of the bars i frequent rarely buy the girls a drink(understandable,as it would be a severe drain on resources to do so if you're out drinking almost every night)
I suppose ex-pats have to watch the purse strings more because they are living a 'normal' day to day life in Thailand,whereas holidaymakers like myself are there for a good time and blowing a load of money every night is almost expected.
So,what is the best way of approaching the 'lady drink' situation without offending anyone or looking like a cheapskate?
I was thinking perhaps i could make it clear in the bars that i would buy no more than 1 lady drink for each bar i visit(sometimes i'll spend the whole night in 1 bar so would be a fairly cheap night )
Buying just 1 lady drink in each bar i would be saving quite a lot of money compared to my last trip.
On a side note,the first time i went to Chiang Mai i had no idea the 'lady drink' was a thing.I thought i was buying as drink for a girl to be sociable,as i would in the US,(i really should have researched Thai culture a little more before arriving )
It was only when i got home and did a little internet research that i discovered the concept of the 'Lady Drink'
No wonder i spent $6000 in 3 weeks
should stick to writing about negros. 1/5 wouldn't read again

WHY, u think she will like u more??
but she will call u a cheap charlie if u dont, but who cares??
U buy a girl a lady drink and she gets a % of the price. If she works in the bar her drink will Always be more than urs for exactly the same drink.
if ur interested in the girl to take home, you need show her u like her by spending $$ on her.
BUT ALWAYS ask before u buy that first drink if she goes off with customers. Otherwise after buying 3-4 drinks and u ask to pay her bar fine she tells you, " i dont go with customer, i only drink with them"
Its like getting a preNup
Am sure Jamie feels different but.....
He wants them all to like him LOL
Get drunk somewhere else and go buy a girl a drink when its time to get things done.
I bet he is 54, living at his mother's has three failed marriages, impotent and has never been more than 50 km from his hometown of Douchebag, Derbyshire.
He uses the name jimmy crow because walter mitty was already taken and troll is too obvious.
as to Bar lady drink etiquette the answer is yes, you would save a lot of money if you only bought one drink. You would save more if you stayed home and you wuld have some if you worked insead of trolled.
