Atlantic Bar 2nd Road Pattaya

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.

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

Joergen Ulitiza 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.
