Pacha Agogo bar was originally due to open in Walking Street, Pattaya on the 1st February 2017, although as at 12th February 2017 the doors remain closed.. It will be in what was Abbes bar. It is one of the so called French Group of bars and appears to have direct links with the owners of Spice Agogo in Soi 15. The initial marketing appears to be entirely in Japanese so we would assume they are looking to recreate what happened at The Palace Agogo which turned around from being totally empty to packed every night with Japanese and Korean customers.
Abbes seemed to have been around forever and will be sorely missed by many. Given its size and prime location the change was probably inevitable once the threat to demolish the beach side had subsided.
No doubt named after the famous Ibiza and New York nightclubs and not to be confused with the Pacha bar in East Pattaya. Surprised they did not come up with a more original name but hey, this is Thailand.
Update 9th March 2017 – it seems they are struggling to get Pacha open indeed rumour is it will not.
Update September 2017 – it seems the entire project has simply been shelved. Bye Bye Pacha
