from the outside, you wouldn't really notice anything different. Inside the main bar, it still looks pretty much the same. New sofas and wall treatments and the addition of a big bike on display (presumably the angels in the name are more to do with motorbikes than celestial singing)DMT's, like most Soi 6 bars, had shit rooms, shit beds, shit showers and shit lighting. The new Dutch owner spent the money where it counts: In the bedroom.New entrance, new doors, new walls, flooring, everything.It's definitely worth a visit even if you only want to play pool against their resident Thai lady pool hustler. Seems to have scaled back to minimal staff and no girls. The girl was a little demure but was friendly enough. The Thai whiskey & coke lady drink was a whopping 140 Baht. I asked the girl and she reckoned that she will only receive 20 Baht of the 140.
I am not sure if they have a different colour scheme for each night of the week, I will have to go back and check, but the overall effect on Tuesday was quite dazzling!
We positioned ourselves in seats between the pool tables and the bar to get a good panoramic view of the lovelies and ordered a couple of bottled Heinekens, which came at a reasonable 70 baht a bottle considering the eye candy, we had a drink in Anna Jet in Soi 7 last week and they charged like a ‘wounded rhinoceros’ for the same libations, with nothing anywhere near as good to look at pulchritude wise.
The unlucky guys then probably hate it and probably waste a fortune in lady drinks in the hope that they can get selected by the girls.
Many of the girls have followed manager Patrick to U Too bar a couple of blocks south on the same road.
After talking to a few girls they told me they do like collecting lady drinks then they like to disappear near closing time to go dancing down walking street.
Most of the girls at Atlantic can't even be bothered to notice you exist. because the girls were too busy talking to each other on the other side of the bar! Every now and then one would sidle over, take a sip of her precious drink, and head back to chat with her friends.I have always been looked after well in the bar There is a computerised music system with every track known to man.They allow a bit of naughty stuff in the bar but they make of a play of shutting doors and standing guard. There's no bar theme linking the bar with either Spanish bull fighting or even the Birmingham shopping centre.Once you've got a drink in front of you, you might as well be invisible at this bar. One time I was there, the guy next to me had something like four ladydrinks in front of him. I had thought I was ignored on my first visit because there was a football match on and perhaps the girls had been instructed not to chat up customers who were watching the game. The second time around, I was still ignored, but at least I didn't buy four ladydrinks for non-existent ladies like the poor sap next to me. It seems to have been taken over by the people who previously had the popular Soi 6 Corner Bar on the opposite corner, before the building was redeveloped into an empty space. You can go and have your fun nearby with your new "friend" then come back and relax in the bar and even have a game of pool on the nice slate-bed table.A few changes seem to have occurred in this bar over the last year. The general atmosphere in the bar definitely seemed different from all other bars down the street when I visited it. If you want to listen to your favourite song you can be your own DJ on the computer disco system. Now returned to British Bulldog, see below Lured in by a suitably good looking girl, but then things went downhill a bit.Perhaps true to form we weren’t hassled by the beauties, but I am the sort of guy that is happy to buy lady drinks for any lady I choose to buy for, but don’t enjoy being pressurised into doing so by unwelcome attention.
