Things are all back to entertaining normal at the TQ. Same classic everything known and loved since 1978--and better, with 3Bz Burritoz in the kitchen! Grab the rock 'n' roll shoes: the full TQ experience awaits you NOW.


Parties are happenin' regularly at the TQ! Watch this space for announcements.


Mikki's fabulous birthday DISCO PARTY was held on Saturday June 18th. Mikki, or Michelle, Bob's daughter, chose the format herself, one of her faves she and her brother created for the TQ. Mikki! Great nostalgia dancin' to best disco tunes of the era selected by Mikki herself. A pro DJ even made a guest appearance!

The wigs and costumes made for much hilarity. Mikki herself looked simply stunning, of course. Bob got the best dressed award with his Elvis get up complete with huge rhinestone glasses. Someday we'll have another photo gallery section where all fans of the TQ can appreciate these good times.

Scar's Cowboy B'day Party

Hope you didn't miss it! Scar's annual birthday party on Saturday June 11th was another TQ blowout. Scar and the TQ go way back together, and a LOT of old timers came by to wish him well. He really looked the part for the evening. The TQ waitresses were all dressed in cowboy outfits and hats, SO cute. And the music--best of country rock played over TQ's unmatched JBL sound system.

And the FREE COWBOY STEW was delicious as well. The whole night was done up in the best TQ tradition. Now to look forward to Scar's next!

Tahitian Queen


Pattaya, Thailand

Daytime is Playtime

Established in 1978, the iconic Tahitian Queen (known worldwide as “the TQ”) is Pattaya’s oldest bar and still the best. It's a must-visit in Pattaya.

Led Zepplin's Jimmy Page has visited the TQ!

Centrally located on Beach Road near Soi 13, the TQ's home to both the Jesters MC and the Pattaya Dirt Road H3. It sponsors the yearly TQ Masters Golf Tournament. And the TQ helps critically in the annual Jesters Care For Kids Charity Drive. With a long and storied history, the Tahitian Queen's more than just a bar: it's a way of life.

  • Live DJ
  • Music videos on 4 screens
  • Quality JBL sound system
  • Well-stocked bar with daily happy hours
  • Friendly, entertaining, attractive staff
  • Beloved kitsch faux-Tiki décor and
  • Clubby, retro dive atmosphere

Rock Out At The TQ


TQ DJs play a wide variety of music selected from a vast collection of DVDs, CDs, and tapes amassed over the decades. Requests accepted.

Surviving all mishaps, the TQ music collection has grown to become the finest in SE Asia. So TQ ain't some golden oldies club playing the Pattaya Top 100. No. TQ DJs open the throttle with the best of rock, blues, Motown, even the occasional rockabilly.

What you WON'T hear is what drives so many patrons away from the plastic bars and clubs: headache-inducing techno, rap, hip hop, heavy metal, punk, and pop pabulum.

Yet the TQ maintains a clubby, intimate atmosphere by playing the music at reasonable volume. You can always carry on a very interesting conversation in the TQ!
