The Famous Bamboo Bar
Reportedly, this bar near the corner of walking street and Pattaya Tai, was one of, if not the very first establishment to offer live foriegn music to the G.I.'s in the early days when Pattaya was just a few wooden shacks and a dirt road. You can still dance the night away to reasonable covers by local bands. Expect an older crowd with similar vintage of tunes. Very popular.
