Pattayaland Soi 3 runs up from Beach Road to Second Road and is at the heart of Pattaya’s oldest established gay district. In recent years the district known as Boyztown has spread into the nearby sois yet Soi 3 remains the soul of it all and home to its most risqué cabaret shows, clubs and bars. After dark a stroll down the neon illuminated street will reveal enticingly named clubs such as Funny Boyz and Boyz, Boyz, Boyz.
Funny Boys is a low-key venue with a relaxing atmosphere where the principal draw is the nightly stage shows. Cute guys strut their stuff from 20:30 onwards. The highlight of an evening is the sexy underwear session. Boyz, Boyz, Boyz offers shows featuring a pleasing mix of hot guys and katoeys (ladyboys) in extravagant outfits who keep the punters coming back night after night.
Many visitors head for Oscars before hitting the hotspots. Staff and hosts at this ambient bar welcome one and all with open arms. Ice-cold beers, an eclectic cocktail menu and filtered coffee ensure patrons linger before heading out. A few minutes away on Soi 1, the Cupidol Beer-Bar is another pleasant place to hang around and enjoy a chat or play pool with the boys.
