Nikky Bar Naklua is where we’ve had three Pattaya Dancing Queen Contests, which as the first of their kind in Pattaya. We have five judges chosen for their impartiality. In the last competition the first-place girl received 20000 baht while the two runner ups received 15000 and 5000 baht. Nikky Bar’s owner, Nikky, is Thai, yet she’s live in the United States for 6 years. Working hard, meeting the American public, in sales.

Nikky Bar’s last night Mimi and Mali take center stage.

A lot of us were expecting one last big bash to celebrate Nikky bars last night. But when I talked with Nikky about it, she told me, “I want to go out quietly. And just have a relaxed evening. Nothing special. Which is about the way things turned out. I took Mali out for Japanese food at the Centara Grand Mirage Resort, so we arrived at Nikky bar after 9 p.m. Luckily Mimi was there, and I had brought my Nikon along hoping to get some passable video.

Before we started hitting the tequila too hard I had Nikky play “Get down Saturday night”, which Mali loves dancing to.

Now I know a lot of people will be asking me, “Is Nikky going to get another bar? But as of Kikky bar’s last night on January 31, 2024, Nikky was still undecided although if I were to bet, “she won’t. Or at least not in the short term.

So, Naklua’s taken yet another turn for the worse with Nikky Bar’s last night finally here.

Several years ago, Nikky had a much larger bar right on Soi 33 across from Grottinos Pizza. The bar had a pair of dancing poles. Had Nikky been able to keep her first bar our three dancing contests might have turned out dramatically different. Because the best pole dancers might have turned out to be the big winners. But the powers that be cleaned out the entire north side of Soi 33 to make room for a hotel where they could put even more Chinese, Koreans, and high sole Thais. Several good restaurants had to move away. And both Nikky and Cocktail bar had to move off that side of the street.

Gone forever are the Pattaya Dancing Queen competitions which no other Pattaya bar did before. Or it one did, did not do nearly so well. Which is sad. Because Pattaya lose its vibrant night life so that progress that practically no one wants can take place.

Dancing to Ex Machina Get Down Saturday Night

Showing off their dancing moves on YouTube, Oscar Isaac and Sonoya Mizuno get Mimi and Mali Dancing to Ex Machina Get Down Saturday Night.

When I watched Sonova Mizuno dancing to Ex Machina Get Down Saturday night on Netflix I thought she was utterly sensational. Then I started doing my research. And found that Sonova’s father is Japanese, and that she was talking ballet classes since she was nine years old. But I also liked Oscar Issac in the film so I decided to find out more about him.

I discovered Oscar Isaac was born in Guatemala to a Guatemalan mother and a Cuban father before the family immigrated to the U.S. when Isaac was five months old. After graduating from the Julliard School, he earned several very prestigious acting awards. But his greatest recognition came from the New York Times in 2020 when the NYT named him one of the 25 greatest actors of the 21st century.

Get Down Saturday Night–now that’s real music. I could try dancing to it. But Oscar Issac shoes are to big for me to fill. He’s one of the world’s finest actors and obviously a very accomplished dancer. While Sonova MIzuno’s dancing credentials are even more impeccable. And while several of my Thai lady friends are outstanding dancers, I really couldn’t see them measuring up to Sonova. Out of all of them, I could only see Mew as having a reasonable chance of emulating Sonova. As for those here who know nothing of Mew, Mew has won all three of our dancing contests at Nikky Bar. Taking home prize money of 4000 baht, 13000 baht and 20000 that (around $700.00 U.S.

Then I tried dancing to Ex Machina Get down Saturday night myself.

But one night while I was having a few drinks with Silent Bob at Pattaya Soi Six’s Hot Shots Bar I asked Silent Bob to play Get Down Saturday night. Bob’s the Dj at Hot Shots and he’s a real cut up. So, when he started playing Get Down Saturday Night I started dancing to it. And I felt I was doing great. But perhaps that’s all that alcohol I was drinking that was doing all the thinking.

So far, I haven’t been seeing all that much of Mew so I’ve not had the chance to see how well she would do dancing to Ex Machina Get Down Saturday night. But I’ve been seeing a lot of Mali lately. Although I’ve known Mali for two years, I never had more than one drink with her until now. And I had never seen her dance. But she’s recently become a big fan of drinking Long Island teas with me. Which consists of six different kinds of alcohol all poured into one glass. I’ve also learned that she really likes to dance.

Mlai was dying to start dancing to Ex Machina with Mimi

So, I was a bit surprised when she asked me, “Let’s go to Nikky Bar tonight. I want to dance to Get Down Saturday Night with Mimi.

Last New Year’s Eve for Nikky Bar.

Because they will be closing all Naklua Bars between Soi 33 and Dolphin circle this will be that last New Year’s Eve here.

This marks what will be close to the final departure of the Naklua bar scene as we know it. To be replaced by Little Korea, Chinatown 2 for Thailand, or High So Dom for wealthy Thai people. Expect new high rise hotels in this area and condos in the coming years.

For Nikky this Last New Year’s Eve for this area’s Naklua bars brings both uncertainty and new opportunities. For the rest of us, at the end of January we will have to go elsewhere.

I came up with these four videos at this last New Year’s Eve party. Hopefully they are some of my best yet. I used my Nikon X7ii camera with the 17-28 wide angle Z lens. And my always on light which I mounted on top of the camera. So, I didn’t use my normal Nikon flash all that much. But the always on light gives me the best focusing for video I can get. While eliminating the effects of the flashing lights in many bar settings.

Mali on the left, Mimi in the middle and Phang on the right. Thanks to Mali and Mimi there’s a lot of great dancing in these four videos and music to go with it, both Thai music and Falang.

I brought two of my favorite ladies Mali and Phang, both of them calendar girls on the 2024 Pattaya Beaches Eye Candy Calendar you can buy at

Mali’s the small cute blonde in these four videos. You can see a lot more of her by visiting

Fortunately, there will be at least one party left here at Nikky Bar. Gethas heads back to London tomorrow. You will see him dancing a lot in these videos. But this has been the Last New Year’s Eve party here at Nikky Bar. Unless she starts up another Nikky Bar somewhere else in Pattaya.
