Atlantic Bar 2nd Road Pattaya for last 15 years has been one of my regular watering holes. Here are many of the interesting people & staff who have enjoyed it with me. The photo above is 2003 with the lovely Aew.

This is not a travel blog just a personal photo collection of 15 years at the Atlantic bar.

  John wants to know what time can he start having fun?

Her name is Mint

Atlantic Bar 2nd Road Pattaya

What about those rosy cheeks?

December 2005

Atlantic Bar 2nd Road Pattaya

All that money around her neck means she is having a birthday.

December 2005

Atlantic Bar 2nd Road Pattaya

    Her name is Dah, a silly mate of ours Pothole, aka John Martin bought her a new nose & boobs & fathered 2 children with her, now in 2015 they are 8 and 6 years old. Naturally the liaison failed after several years of mayhem & war, and now he pays a fortune to educate and look after them. Is it any wonder we call him Pothole?

John  Secrets & Joergen Ulitzer

Atlantic Bar 2nd Road Pattaya

December 2005 and the boys are having fun, now in 2015 John is living happily in Bangkok while Joerg languishes in a Hong Kong prison on a drug smuggling charge. November 2015 and charges against Joerg have been dropped.
