Ram Bar

Over the last few months Ram Bar has transformed itself into Chiang Mai’s most popular gay bar. This is due in part to the formula of good management and very friendly, affable staff, but also due to their entertaining and popular cabaret shows. The shows run nightly from Wednesday through Saturday starting at 10.30 p.m and draw a good crowd. It is often standing room only so go early to be sure of a seat.

The following are some sneak previews of the Ram Bar show.

Sabaai Dee Santitham

The start of July brought the sad news that Sabaai Dee Santitham was closing down. According to American owner Noland it has been struggling for months and with the onset of low season they couldn’t justify keeping the doors open. There is still a possibility that it may re-open come high season.

Adam’s Apple Club

Adam’s Apple Club is now under new ownership and has undergone a few changes. Downstairs, the old Metro Bar has been remodelled into De Eva Pub and Restaurant, which held its grand opening party on 1st July. The bar is apparently open from 8 a.m. until late daily.

Meanwhile, upstairs in the club the stage has been re-designed and a new large screen TV system installed to enhance the show. There is also a new sign outside and a remodelled entrance alongside the new De Eva Pub. Whilst the business may have seen some changes it continues to offer some of the best available boys in town if you are looking for some fun with a handsome macho companion.

In April we had the sad news that Arthur, of House of Male fame had passed away. We are now pleased to report that the business has now been acquired by the new owners of Adam’s Apple. Word in the steam room is that they plan some major refurbishments to make it into the Babylon of the north. We look forward to hearing more.
