EDSA Entertainment Complex


Gogo Bar complex

The DSA Entertainment Complex is often called the "Nana Plaza of Manila", only that it is much smaller (consisting of about 10 Gogo-like bars) and totally lacks of the seedy, rundown, dirty and scammy impression Bangkok's Nana gives.
The bars are themed (Cowgirls, 'Futuristic' etc.) and in general, the girls give a healthy, attractive and motivated impression. All of that comes at a price, however : in some of the bars, ladydrink can cost a whopping 300 pesos, barfines start at 1000p. Together with the 2000p the girls will expect (at least), this makes barfining an EDSA girl more expensive than it comes to have paid sex at certain venues in Europe, and satisfaction is not guaranteed as we have heard of mixed experiences regarding the performance and attitude of the girls once they are barfined. Maybe all of that is one reason why most of the bars feel quite empty most of the time, they are hardly visited by locals or 'veterans'/expats, but rather by unsuspecting tourists expecting a SE-Asian pricing structure or by Asian businessmen who are looking for trophys and are ready to pay for them.

What you get:
Female hostesses or dancers for men (straight). Hostesses are wearing bikinis. They are playful only after tip or buying drinks.

Pricing info
Barfines/Bookings of hostesses range from 1000 to 1500,--
Drink prices start from 100,--
Drinks for staff members: 250,--

Happy Hour drinks: (none that we know about.)

The Overall Rating is the most important of them all: it should indicate your overall satisfaction with this venue, and will be displayed in all our listings.
Try to rate on the overall impression of this venue in terms of design, cleanliness, decoration etc.
The Staff Rating is supposed to indicate the service quality (friendliness and politeness, short waiting times etc.) - but not only of managers or waitresses, but also of the hostesses.
A venue shouldn't receive a top-rating here if the waiters/waitresses are working hard, but the hostesses couldn't care less for customers (except when waving with money ;-)).
The Management Rating indicates the 'forces behind the venue'. If a place is well-managed, you usually don't even get to see or need the managers, since the staff is well-trained and can keep their customers happy by themselves. This would justify a very good rating.
If, in a worst-case scenario, you would need to call for support, but the management reacts unfriendly or couldn't care less for their customers' position, or if the staff is obviously doing what they want, this would justify a low rating in this aspect.
There can be a huge difference in drink quality and prices between red-light venues.
The Drinks Rating should indicate whether drinks are of good quality (no watered beers, watered down mixers, dirty glasses, beer served in champagne flute-like glasses, warm beers,..) and if their price is at about the same level as in similar venues of this area.
'Hooking up' with a customer indicates a good service level within the venue (see other rating), but the service level in the room (the one most customers are usually aiming for at the end) might be a completely different story...
The 'Private Time Rating' indicates whether hostesses/hookers at this particular venue have been experienced to be able and willing to make customers happy - or not.
Does this venue provide a great atmosphere or at least help to turn 'playful'? Or does it give something back for the buck (if there are admission fees or obligatory drinks)? Or is the atmosphere rather boring/turning off?

About 2010, the Edsa International Entertainment Complex (called Edsa Complex) bar fine was increased to PHP 1,650. In 2012, the price of a beer was increased to PHP 135. A girl will accept a minimum of PHP 2,500 for short time (one-shot), usually paid after you done the deed. Ugly girl or near closing time, a girl might accept your offer of less than PHP 2,500. A few mama-sans might insist that you buy the girl a lady's drink. There are two prices for a lady's drink, namely PHP 240 and about PHP 380. Guess which price you are charged, if you do no specify which lady drink? Edsa Complex has seven clubs, including: Firehouse, Space Girls, Pitstop, Bullets and Arrows, Cotton Club, and Samba. Two years ago, a club manager told me that an upstairs club, enter through the Cotton Club, for Arabs was opened about 2am. Unknown if the Arab club is still opened. An Aussie owns the entire Edsa Complex and is the same man who owned the old Firehouse club (now Bar Amazonia) on Del Pilar Street, Ermita. Most customers visit Edsa Complex on Fridays and Saturdays, when the clubs usually require all their girls to work. Edsa Complex had more customers when the bar fine was PHP 1,000, a beer cost PHP 110, and a lady drink cost PHP 195 and 300. I believe that Edsa Complex has fewer customers in 2012, due to increased prices and fewer girls, who realized that fewer customers mean less opportunity to earn pesos.
