The layout of Champagne A-Go Go is still basically the same: a (too) narrow central stage and double-tier bench seating on both sides.
I have never been a big fan of double-tier bench seating: I feel uncomfortable on the upper benches and I feel uncomfortable on the lower benches.
There are still the naked show girls, but naked dancers are becoming a bit of rarity in Champagne, The Office and MASH. I see a lot of reviews on this site, and I think too many guys are simply too negative.
The line of reasoning that it seats more customer bums cuts no ice: the punters are more spread and the empty space, especially on the upper benches, serves as a hiding place for the girls.
During my visit there were lots of dancers and waitresses and about a dozen customers. They were a mix of coyotes clad in denim outfits and girls in red bikinis in the most diverse shapes and sizes, with some huge tops and the bottoms varying from strings with a fantasy metal chain between the buttocks to old-fashioned swimming trunks.
The bench seating of Club Malibu is still there, but it was deserted In Champagne A-Go Go itself were three dancing teams of about ten mostly chubby to fat, overdressed, double-topped and double-bottomed coyotes, some of them with ugly pot bellies and ugly tattoos. After a short pole-dance intermezzo most customers left.
I did not see the infamous elderly Nancy with the giant glasses, ridiculous silicone balloons and worn white net stockings, who had come from Kiss A-Go Go.
At Champagne A-Go Go on Soi LK Metro is a hole in the wall now towards a LOUNGE or VIP LOUNGE where Club Malibu used to be.
The central stage of the former Club Malibu has been replaced by a smaller, round (unused) one and there is a pool table behind it.
The only female inside is Poo, the fat wife of the Dutch owner, Josh (PA member josh1963), who is always sitting in a corner, busy on his notebook. However, no sex is required to have some fun with the ladyboys. My first visit to the bar was in the company of a few friends at am. There were about 15 ladies dressed from topless to light bikinis. The dancing is coyote with something more like bunny costumes than the usual Go Go wear.
There were five tall and slim ladyboys in the 20-30 age bracket. barfines are in the range 800-1000 depending on short or long time. Customer drinks are very reasonable yet lady drinks are amongst the most expensive in town at 175 Baht.
On the television screen Japanese adult cartoons were shown.
The girls at Champagne A-Go Go were not pushy at all for lady drinks.
Apparently after a dispute about using the name, Amethyst, the bar closed for renaming and became Gold on 5th January 2017.
