Every Sunday, this hip cabaret bar at Novotel Fenix Silom hotel hosts a special gay evening where qipao-adorned waitresses are replaced by hunky, shirtless men.
Maggie Choo’s has a very laid-back, cosy atmosphere. Large gay crowd with many foreigners.
weekend: Sun 19:30 - 03:00
venue: bar (酒吧) | features: bar, music, cabaret show (酒吧, 音乐, 歌舞表演) | customers: mostly gay
Different from Silom, worth going to
“Arrived around 9:30p - wasn’t too crowded but all tables had already been reserved. At 10:30 the drag queens started performing regularly every half hour or so. Around 10:30 the place started getting a little crowded too. It was packed by 11 and the shows ended around 12:30am. Towards the end the drag queens played a couple of audience participation games (song guessing and a dance off). After the shows the place emptied out.
Didn’t really see the Asian theme of this place; it’s just a classy bar. The music was good: your typical Western club music. The drinks are pricey but strong. The drag queens were really good dancers, and Pangina was really funny. But this meant less dancing among the patrons (since most people just watching the show).
The crowd was definitely different than what you’d encounter in Silom: Thais there were more upscale, mostly late 20s / early 30s, no moneyboys, etc. My guess is most spoke English (all the drag queens spoke in English). There were a good number of foreigners. Dress code is supposedly no tank top / no shorts / no sandals, but I definitely saw guys there wearing those. The description here is also a bit misleading. There were no hunky shirtless waiters. There were only a few (2-3) shirtless guys, but they just sat there. Overall a pretty good time, and something different than the usual Silom scene.“
