Kostakis moved to Pattaya from Cyprus in the autumn of 2017, opening this bar in early 2018 on Soi 18 off Naklua Road in Pattaya.
With 16 staff employed here, you can be sure of a friendly welcome and a fast, efficient service.
The area is affluent and plays home to a number of top hotels and resorts and has many good restaurants and shops in the vicinity.
The venue is, as its name suggests, a cabaret venue, with nightly shows to attract its customers. From the outside you will be immediately aware of when the next show commences as it is written clearly on a large sign.
There is a bar area, which is large and spacious, with wall mounted bench tables and stools, sofa seating and of course the largish bar service area. It’s black tiled floor shines and reflects light back into the bar and its purple walls.
The cabaret area is all sofa seating, which is in front of the central stage. Although the two are in the same room, there are televisions displaying the goings on from the stage as the show gets underway.
The shows are a mixture of traditional Thai dance covering many aspects of the nation but open to almost anything you can think of. For instance there was a performance from a gent dressed as Michael Jackson, when our photographer was present.
Expect to see stunning ladyboys, dressed in glamorous dresses that are fit for any special event. Vibrant colours, attractive jewellery, alluring dance routines are all part and parcel of the entertainment on offer at Kokthai Cabaret.
Some of the stars of this show will leave you breathless as you wonder how a ladyboy can be as beautiful as many of the ladies of this city.
Irrespective of your sexuality, you could pay this venue a visit and enjoy a beer, good fun in great company and take in one of the shows.
Take a chair on one of the sixty available and enjoy a draught San Miguel or one of their range of bottled beers, including Tiger and Chang.
You will find spirits, wines, shots and soft drinks available from the bar here.
If you are looking for something different from the normal run of the mill bars in the city, then look no further than this venue.
There is great fun to be had and a party atmosphere most evenings.
