At first glance, one might think that Loft is a gay venue. But it’s actually a mixed bar that attracts many women, ladyboys, college students, gay men and those who enjoy the company of good-looking, hunky men.

This cosy bar serves a selection of drinks and some food. There’s live band music playing all night long and an outdoor terrace with some tables. The staff are all male, all muscular, and in their 20’s, who know how to flaunt their assets.

We’ve visited this place and understood why there were many gay customers.
