Thermae Freelancer Pickup Bar in Bangkok

Thermae Pickup Bar Bangkok near Nana near Soi Cowboy

The Thermae Club on Sukhumvit Road between Nana Plaza and Soi Cowboy is the most famous pickup club for freelancer girls in Bangkok. It is a little bit hard to find, because there is only the sign you can see above on the wall, not more. So better you try to find the Ruamchitt Hotel sign, than right side of the hotel entry there is the way down to the Thermae Club. And there is another sign, that you are on the right place. On the stairs up to the hotel and the Bar, there will be a bunch of ladyboys. They are not allowed to enter the bar, so they try to catch the customers in front of the Bar. And a lot of them are very pretty and sexy and nearly impossible to find out you are talking with a ladyboy, so better be carefull in this area (check out the funny sign they used to mark it on the bar in our picture gallery).

If you come there the the right time, there will be a row of girls around the whole bar. They are not allowed to approach to the customers, so it is more like a lineup in a sauna than in a normal pickup bar. They will stand around the center bar counter where the customer can take a seat in a line (like you can see on one of the pictures above) and wait till you pass by and invite them to drink with you or directly go out with her.

The sort- and longtime rates are lower than in typical Gogo Bars, but the girls quality is not bad. Not comperable with the best Gogo Bars, but most time better than girlsbars or massage parlors. You should not be too shy, because it is a little bit too dark in the bar, so if you like to select a girl and you care about her face, you have to walk along the line very near to the girls and check them face by face. When you order a drink, you will be asked to pay immediatelly, because the staff there also knows, it could be you want to leave fast.

Bangkok Nightlife Guide Gogo Club Rating (how we rate)

Girls Quality: 7 of 10

Enviroment: 3 of 10

Show: 1 of 10

Price: 2 of 10

Tip: Don`t come in weektime before 10 pm to 11 pm, because than very less selection, on weekend better around 9:30, because a lot of asian guy will be there and pick out the best ones fast. 

Nightlife Guide recommendation: 

Definitly the best place, if you like to go to a "supermarket" of girls and you want to take out a girl without spend a lot of money for barfine and drinks. The selection is great (especially on friday and saturday), the girls are nice and honest and you can be sure you will not accidentally take home a ladyboy.

    Just went there last night. Excellent choice of girls. I am 65 yr old farang and I had plenty of young girls making eye contact, saying hello, grabbing my sleeve etc. There were plenty of Asian guys there but no shortage of girls playing up to the farangs . Ya gotta love this place.

    Finally, a place where Asian is favoured and Farang is rejected. Can't wait to visit this place in December!

    Definitely a place for Japanese men and all the girls I spoke to were short time only. Plenty to offer in BKK anyway as there are literally thousands of good looking girls all over town.
    Try your luck hitting on a girl in a department store or supermarket. Works for me...

    They like Japanesse men because they are polite and small dicks. The only time women prefer tiny is when they are working. Makes sense, nothing personal.

    I am a tall white guy in good shape but also got the impression that this bar isn't for most Farang. I love the relaxed no pressure atmosphere, nobody hassles you. Free entry, resonably prices drinks, lots of girls. Give it a try but don't be shy, approach the ones you like and continue with a smile if turned down.

    If they don't look back at you ignore them and go to the next one.

    I went there a couple of times, stayed at Manhattan and the Ruamchitt too. It is quite true that they like Japs. I was quite embarrassed.

    I had a very good experience of thermae bar. I had flight back to india at morning 4.00 am and had to report 3 hours before departure. So I thought best way to pass time to go Thermae and take short time lady. Bought bear and sat in centre. Hardly 10 mints passed a well dressed smart lady sitting near me started smiling at me. I also gave her smile and I buy her a bear. She wanted to come with me and I also thought of passing my time.she asked 2000 bh for the St. I told her to give her 1500 bh.only . She was smiling allways and agree to come to my hotel. She gave me a wonderful time. She even gave special massage. And sex was wonderful . Her name JJ and age around 39. Very good soft and firm boobs she has.i have her phone no and next time I will see her. She wonderful lady and knows how to make sex after giving a nice hot shower bath and kiss all parts of your body.

    Unless you're Korean/Japanese, expect to be turned down a lot. After ten girls completely ignored me (the 7-8s), I gave up. Good luck.

    Hi, Thank you for your review on the thermae bar. I went there 2 times during my visit to Bangkok last week. As your reviews says it is correct that the girls in Thermae Bar prefer Japanese clients over western clients. I was refused by many girls, first I felt awkward and want to go to a gogobar to pick up a girl then slowly realised it is a trade. I was able to find some girls who accepts foreigners, but a place to miss definetly or u will be embrassed for sure.

    Problem with the Thermae Bar is most of the girls there only want to go with Japanese or Korean men. If you a farang there are much better options elsewhere. You can get girls if you are a farang - sometimes nice ones too - but most girls there will smile politely and wait for their Asian dreamboy to pass - usually a drunk, fat, balding Japanese businessman!

    The review above of the club is perfect.

    This is one of my favorite locations in bkk to meet a young lady for company. I prefer this casual setting versus the bars of which many personnel are pressing the customer to buy drinks and barfine a girl. I am not cheap by any terms and prefer the Thermae setup.

    A lifelong Californian 53 years and in shape have no problem meeting a nice 20 something lady at Thermae. Off to bkk in one week and will visit this location the first night.

    I had no problems finding the right girl. I sat back and watch and veto'd the ones I wanted to say no to. Ended up doing ok and had a great evening.

    Great choice of girls, but unless you are young and preferably Japanese, good luck. I was totally blanked, which felt very awkward, and I couldn't leave quick enough.
