      Comments from Utopians:

      "Tawan bar - 'wow' is what I can say. If you are into muscle worship and native studs, this is it. I like that the place has no mamasan, and just waiters taking your orders without pressure, nor guys trying to get you to buy them drinks. They pretty much just stay on the stage. The place is pretty decent looking. Customers are seated and watch a parade of muscle guys in swimwear. It is like a meat market on auction - pure lean beef, hahaha! If you just want to watch, you will not be pressured to off one. No entrance fee, but beer is B$350 each. You will have unforgettable experience." -- kimchiseoul, Nov 4, 2013

        Comments from Utopians:

        "I checked my bag before entering, but when I got home I found that someone on staff had stolen my laptop and replaced it with a broken old laptop so I wouldn't notice that anything was missing from my bag. Do NOT use the coat check - they will go through your bag. The only thing you should take with you is return taxi fare home, which you'll want to use within five minutes of entering." -- Mark, Jul 25, 2013
