iBar / Insomnia
One of the most famous nightclubs and bars in Pattaya is iBar and Insomnia. They have a very distinct logo, and can be seen in all Pattaya. They use green lasers that they set up to the sky. Great way of promoting.
iBar and Insomnia is 2 different consepts. They also have a restaurant, but that will be in its own review.
Walking in to iBar or Insomnina, you are met with security that needs to check your pockets or purse. The reason for this is weapons. I do not think they have had any problems with that for the last 10 years.
If you start at iBar, you are met with a bar, DJ-booth, bar, toilets, pooltables and then the balcony. We usually go out to the balcony and get a table there.
If you dont want to pay full price for drinks, you need to buy a membership. You only need one member per table. And you save on it from the 2nd drink. You also get bonus points, that you can spend later. Really a smart deal to make sure you have regulars.
The music in here is mostly commercial, and leans towards hiphop/reggaeton/latin. But you also get the commercial house music from the last decade. In Pattaya it is welcoming with a bar that plays most original music.
The girls. Oh so many girls. This is propably one of the places where girl keep walking in the door all night. Beautifull girls in all ages (over 18). Its not difficult to start talking to anyone.
They have 3 pooltables in the center of the room. Mostly occupied from 10PM, so if you want to play, let the staff know.
If you get a table inside, they have great seating on the side of the DJ-booth. Great place to sit and watch everything that walks in the door.
Drinkprices is one of the most expencive in Pattaya nightlife, if you only buy bottle-beer or drinks. Except for prices at A Go Go’s. Make sure to buy a bottle of for example vodka if you are more than 2 people.
They have a VIP-table by the sea you can buy: Not worth it.
Walking up to Insomnia (1st floor), you will hear the music straight away. Propably one of the loudest clubs in Pattaya. They play mostly EDM, but alot of commercial remixed stuff.
Alot of great staff that makes sure you get drinks. But this place get packed at about midnight. So you should get there earlier if you want a table. If you dont have a table, you wont last more than 30 minutes in here.
They have VIP-areas thats more calm. But thats not where the action is or where you meet girls. If you need a party after 3 AM, make sure to check it out.
On both places they sell frozen shots to cool you down, and popcorn if your hungry. Smart way to keep you drinking more. But so good when you are a little vamished.
