Neon Lights Up Butterflies’ 3rd Anniversary Party
Butterflies’ 3rd Anniversary was a massive bash enjoyed by both guests and the ladies. This year’s theme was “neon party” all the girls queuing up for glow-in-the-dark body paint by a talented artist hired for the oaccasion or by each other! Some of the ladies actually were very good with the artowrk. For the guys, it was a messy affair and, instead of lipstick, some guys had to go home and explain not the lipstick on the collar, but the glowing paint on their crotch!
Of course, any Butterflies Bangkok party at Nana Plaza has to include great food and we had 100 pizzas from Pizza Mania, kilotons of Buffalo wings and lots of great Buy-1-Get-1-Free specials.
The music was thumping, the vibe pumping and the girls in a great mood. Thank you to everyone who came out and we hope to make Butterflies’ 4th anniversary party in 2020 even bigger!
The Butterflies Story
Starting life in 2016 as simply a rebranded Jail Birdz, the huge a-go-go on the top floor of Nana Plaza gradually metamorphosed into the Thai capital’s most-talked about club. Once thought of as the weaker sister of Billboard Bangkok, Butterflies on many nights is actually busier than its older sibling and the buzz surrounding the go-go on its third birthday is the loudest of any bar of its kind in Thailand.
Butterflies story really is that of a caterpillar who became a beautiful monarch. The largest bar in Nana Plaza, on Sukhumvit Soi 4, Butterflies initially struggled to attract both enough ladies and customers. Well into its second year, its owner seemingly conceded its fate by installing a retractable curtain and closing off half of the bar to give it a warmer vibe.
But in late 2018, Butterflies’ owner – who also operates Thailand’s No. 1 go-go bar, Billboard Bangkok – made the decision to simply “go for it”, investing the money to fully stock Butterflies’ two stages and Jacuzzis with even more of the supermodel-caliber dancers that put Billboard atop the charts. An all-new computerized lighting system was installed and a no-expense-spared sound system.
The result? A club with a look, sound and vibe like no other. Butterflies quickly began winning plaudits for its fresh identity – “same, same, but different” from Billboard – and the great attitude of the 140 entertainers on the floor, which gave Butterflies a more-accessible “party” vibe.
Now, as Butterflies prepares to celebrate its birthday, the go-go is no longer “Billboard’s Little Sister”. It actually employs 40% more dancers and has become a destination unto its own that, during the low season of this year, frequently draws more customers than Billboard across the way.
