Soi Diamond, and in particular the Soi Diamond Arcade has historically been one of the most popular, and best known, nightlife areas of Pattaya. It was, and still is, home to the oldest gogo bar in the Walking Street area, Diamond Agogo. Diamond Agogo is the 2nd oldest gogo bar in Pattaya, the oldest being Tahitian Queen on Beach Road. Indeed with Super Baby and the central arcade beer bars having been around since the 1970s you could argue this is where it all began.
In recent years it had seen a rapid decline in fortune with the closure of many long established bars and gogo bars. However, 2017 is witnessing a resurgence in fortune. Mainly due to the fact rentals are lower which has encouraged new bars to open, mainly in the Soi Diamond alleyway at the rear of the Arcade itself.
