This sports bar sits deep in what is known as the “Dark Side” of Pattaya, which generally covers anything on the east side of Sukhumvit Road. It is far removed from the busy tourist areas that Pattaya is famous for but dotted around the Dark Side is some excellent bars, restaurants, resorts and music venues.
It is owned by Mick, a former offshore worker from Dover, England, who took the decision to move to Pattaya in 2009. He opened this business venture in 2012.
He and the staff can cater for up to 100 customers in this busy and very popular venue, which has much to offer its customers.
There is a strong golfing theme around the bar which will become more apparent as you read on.
You will find areas of the venue and the walls adorned with golfing memorabilia, from various tournaments and historical events.
For those of you who are not fans of golf, there is a red baize pool table for you to make use of, where you can show your skills with a cue.
You can sit outside by the roadside or venture in, where the temperature is cooler, in the air conditioned environment.
Nine televisions are provided for entertainment purposes, which display sporting events and YouTube music videos. You will find every live sporting event on the televisions including rugby, football/soccer, NRL, cricket and more.
There are eight rooms available at the Players Sports Lounge, six of which are large studio apartments and two single rooms, which are available on long or short term deals.
The rooms have fully equipped kitchens, free internet connectivity, cable television, en-suite, air conditioning plus extra fans and full access to the sports club.
You will also find a large comfortable bed, refrigerator and a lot of space to move around in.
Customers here can sign up for one of the many excellent golfing trips available. Mick takes care of all arrangements including travel, leaving you free to enjoy your day on the course.
They have a choice of courses available including Bangpha, The Emerald, Eastern Star and Khao Kheow, from a list of around twelve.
