  3. I chose this place as I heard they had live music (light jazz) and a nice venue. I found them also on Eatigo and booked a 530pm reservation for 4 friends @ 30% off. Live music starts at 530pm Th-Mon. The music wasn't jazz but it was very nice and at a perfect volume so it didn't take away from conversation or the meal. The venue is laid out well with a good view of the beach. There was a 2 for 1 drink promotion and we all ordered beers. You can watch them cook out on the patio and the food was very good. The portions were nice sized. The bread to start off was fresh and warm and was a hit with us all. The balsamic and olive oil dip was good and even better when the olive oil was sopped up first leaving the balsamic for dipping. We sat outside as the lounge area was not as friendly for dining but they told me either was place we would be served. There was a nice breeze coming through the place and it was tranquil. After our bread we were served our dishes of a Havana Burger, Lamb Burger, and two pasta dishes with clams. Everyone seemed to enjoy their meals. I also ordered a greek salad which 2 if us split and that was nice. I would definitely go back and try it again. There is a picture of the promos and the pizza deal looks promising. They do have some Thai food on the menu. The lounge has some cigars for sale but I couldn't see the prices. Out bill for 10 beers, 3 coffees, a salad, 2 burgers meals and 2 pasta meals was under 3K for four of us with the discount if I remember correctly. 10% service and 7% vat was added. We asked the waitress and she said the staff splits the 10% service fee. So the 30% discount was maybe more like 13% after the 17% was added. We did not get the 30% discount on the 2 for 1 beers of course as they don't allow double dipping. Eatigo has up to 50% off deals for Havana but not that high when live music is playing. The music consisted of a woman singer and a guitar player. They were really nice to listen to for a change. The place is located off beach road and can be accessed from the beach or off Soi 1 and park at the Holiday Inn and walk past the front door and down the stairs to the entrance of the Havana Lounge and through to the outdoor seating. The seats there are extremely comfortable for our western sized butts. We stayed there quite a long time just having a nice chat with each other. I really dislike style over functional seating.

  4. Yesitsdakid - Pattayaland 13/4 was a favorite of mine for years. You didn't need to go to walking street. There was great food entertainment and good partying people. I miss Cheers, Palmers and Bubbles most of all! Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  5. I was there at 9pm last night and there were more staff than customers. Two girls in flag uniforms that were designed to look weathered but to me they looked dirty. I came in and there was only one other guy in the place (besides the manager). I would think the manager would have said hello or given me a nod. Maybe he has given up. The place was clean and the music was nice but there was only 2 girls outside that stayed outside and the service staff of about 5 girls. If you always want to be able to get your favorite table when you walk in, then this is the place fo you. I had 4 friends join me there for a drink and we immediately left after. While I wish them luck I just think this place is doomed. I came in at 9pm and was bin #4 for the day. My friends put the bins up to #8 but I would be surprised if they had hit #20 by the nights end. A big place with big overhead. I keep trying to enjoy a visit there every trip but I just end up thinking my entertainment money is better spent elsewhere. Again in the 4 or 5 visits I have made there since the opening day I haven't once gotten a greeting by the manager or owner or whoever the falang is that's there. I don't need a long chat but if the place is a scooby-do ghost town I would think showing the customers that do show up a little acknowledgment is fair which a nod is fine. Below are the pictures of our bins. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    I go to central to the ais payment machine and make 20 baht payments and I get 1 month extension on ly number. It will allow you to have up to 1 year extension on ur number doing it that way. It costs me 20 baht and I get 20 baht credit on my account which I use towards my whatever plan I have. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  10. Do you find the weekend rates have a greater loss from the XE rates all the time than weekday rates? Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    The other issue is if your home phone is on verizon or sprint network and is a dual sim. I have never been able to find out if you can use a dual sim phone with cdma and a gsm sim card at the same time. Any insight is appreciated. I find it easiest to move my home number to an old phone before I come to Thailand. Sprint gives me free text and super slow data (flip phone data speeds) when I travel for free. I just use it to get my texts and listen to voicemail. I use my newer phone with my thai sim card as it takes nice pictures and is quite fast. When I get back home I switch my service back to my newer phone. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Soi Pothole

    I use PT laundry there and I use my motorbike to get there and it can be a bit tough at times and I agree if it rains you can't see how big those potholes may be. The only way I see this being a proper road is if the city blocks the road as a danger and the owners are forced to get the job done. I don't expect that to happen though either. It was nice after the last paving when I could glance at the girls as I drove down the road. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    Soi Pothole

    It still looks in better condition than it was 2 years ago. I wonder how long before it gets another layer of asphalt from the city at no cost to the owners. I know its privately owned. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
