Bangkok Podcast 47: Q-Bar Andrew

On this episode of Bangkok Podcast, we sit down with Andrew Clark, co-owner and co-founder of Q Bar, Bangkok’s hippest, coolest night club. Besides being a superb and friendly chap, Andrew talks to us about the humble beginnings of Q Bar, and what it takes to stay at the front of the line in an indusrty that’s notorious for big openings and quick closures. He also gives us the lowdown on playing by the rules when the rules are constantly changing, the difficulties in keeping working girls (and guys!) out of the club, and the dirty tricks that other bars resort to when they’re jealous of the industry leader.

Greg and Tony also discuss Tony’s upcoming trip to Ko Chang, the annoyance of sitting on a bus for more than a few hours, and the secret to how they both stay so pasty-white (hint: we never leave Bangkok).

We also continue our partnerships with BK Magazine, Bangkok’s best source for what’s going on, and give a few quick details on a cheesy concert that the girls will love, a sobering photography exhibit, and a SUPER GIANT FUN TIME!

    Great show, As Andrew mentioned the proceed would go to Red Cross…We may wanna look at Red Cross Charity history..

    Red Cross took nearly a billion dollar for haiti earth quake relief however, did not even spend 1/3rd of it..rather close to 10 million dollars on papers building their own look after victims buildings. Haitians never got American money. They are the biggest mafia masquerading as charity on earth. Google red cross scams in haiti and hear it from haitians themselves.

    Never give donations to red cross…they just pocket your money and the victims suffer…

    Please Please do research on Red Cross and their Haiti relief effort before giving them any money. Thanks

    Last week was a little confusing and scrambled, not the thai, but just staying on topic. No worries though, this week was another great show. Very interesting!!! Love the bloopers at the end. 5555

    Andrew told me was quite worried about how his interview would come out as he’s quite a shy person and doesn’t feel natural being interview on TV or radio… but the opposite is the case here. A very natural and great interview, one of my favorite’s you guys have done.

    Bravo!!!

    oh, and please do come down to Q Bar between the 6th-11th; if you buy a bottle of Grey Goose you’ll be donating 1,500baht to the victims of the Tsunami – which is a great way to give!!!

    Not sure why he was so worried I thought he came across very well spoken. I’ll be dropping by QBar this Friday!

    I like the interviewee’s voice, but I am not sure about the bar.
