As to whether it was a "small place" it was always a two shop house size, larger than the other bars on the soi at that time.
    I have checked my Bangkok visits and see that my first Apollo experience was 1980. I can say definitely that by then the little bar was on the left of the entrance. I remember because I spent many visits over 2 or 3 years perched on a bar stool as I had a thing for the student bartender. Sadly he did not have a thing for me, but it was still lovely chatting to him and then turning to watch the boys strut their stuff on the catwalk, especially when underwear came off and at the boys were in their birthday suits.

    So I expect it had been remodelled. It certainly had an upstairs with one or more short time rooms, But the ground floor was occupied by another tenant. I never attended any other bar on that soi which may be one reason it seems to be etched on my memory!!

    I have been doing some clearing out this weekend and was surprised to find I have a photo of the X-Treme Dancers and an old DVD of two of their routines. I now remember that the owner had decided to make DVDs. I doubt if he sold many, though. The only boy whose name I remember is Jay who wears the black shirt in the front row.

    What do you mean by recent? Tattoos have been around in large numbers since I first came to Thailand in 2009.

    When I was at the Soi Twilight demolition site in early 2020, I found some VHS cassettes whose titles suggested that they recordings of shows or special events in Soi Twilight. A friend has a VHS player, and when I'm back in Thailand we will have a look.

    I have more memorabilia salvaged from the demolition site, if someone wants to start a museum, contact me.

    That's because they are mostly clothed! One guy - I think the boy to Jay's left - did have a large circular tattoo low down on his right abdomen. No idea why it was there or what it represented. But it was definitely there.
