Count Nikolas Bar the newest bar in Subic
Count Nikolas is located opposite Voodoo and Angels bars on National Highway so it is east to find. Small bar just so you know so easy to get to know everyone.
There are about 15-18 girls working so having some company is not a problem.
Wild Island Bar
Opens at 4pm and has dancers, I have yet to be in this new bar along with all the other new ones.
CHOOK Raffle Night
Flash Rats holds Free Chook Raffles every Thursday night. From 7pm until 10pm every drink purchase earns you one entry into the Chook Raffle. The raffles are drawn every half hour, starting at 7:30pm until about 10:30pm.
The Chooks are prepared by the Blue Rock Resort and are ‘ready to eat”, stuffed birds.
Flash Rats, a great option for your Thursday night Fun!
The biggest news on the bars in Barrio Barretto is that starting this month the Drydens group of clubs has removed the need to pay the bar to take the girl out while she is still working. All the details are not fully know as the management wishes to keep that part quiet but now all that is required for the girl to leave work with you is that you sign a paper stating that she is leaving on her own free will and nothing was paid to the bar for her to depart. No one knows how this will work out in the long run but one thing is for sure and that is that it clears the bars of and signs of wrong doing. Once the girl leaves what happens after that is all on them.

“10-20” Soon to Open as the Newest Afternoon Bar & Late Disco - SNS
The newest afternoon bar & late night disco will be opening within the net two weeks in Barrio Barretto.
The former Jaspas (V-Max) location, across from Midnight Rambler and Flash Rats has been purchased by Myla, the wife of the owner of The General’s Command Post, Tommy. Currently they are doing a number of renovations and hope to open by the end of the first week in December.
The “10-20” plans are for the site to be an Expat afternoon location that will convert nightly over to a disco format. Myla is very excited about the new business venture. With her great success in turning The General’s into Barretto’s #1 afternoon location, this should be an interesting venture to follow.
Two new place to visit - Subic Cafe is the old Mask n Feather bar
17 March 2015 Update
1. Subic Cafe has changed again, guess no one can make a go of the bar since it keeps changing names all the time
2. Kookaburra bar had been bought by an American and is now called "Seaman's" they are still open in the morning. I still stop in and see if they still have girls when they open which it looks like they do.
Aug 2015 - 1020 club closed and renamed Paradise, the new bar opens at 2pm has a pool table and GRO's
Bar for rent as of 21 November 2015
Rapscallion. It's basically a turnkey operation. Everything is there; furniture, air conditioning, fans, lighting, sound system, music computer, CCTV, etc. Those remain our property. The only thing the tenant needs is staff and stock.
The fine print:
Rent P76,000 a month (utilities not included). 2 months rent and 2 months security in advance. Rental payments will be monthly after that.
If desired, we will handle credit card purchases.
The tenant will have to rename it.
At his option, the bar can remain part of SOB.
We have space available at our stay-in.
