Tootsies Massage shop is an all ladyboy massage joint in Soi Whiskey, located near the end of Patong’s Rat-U-Thit (the main road). It’s about a 15 minute walk from Bangla Road so you may want to hop on a motorbike taxi to reach it, as it can be a sweaty trek on Patongs hotter days!
They have a range of different massages available on the menu ranging all the way up to a VIP massage at 2000 baht, which includes use of the large VIP room including a king sized bed and soapy bath.
In 2012 Tootsies expanded their business model to open a small beer bar on the other side of the main road from the massage shop, thus plugging a gap in the market for a daytime ladyboy bar in Patong. The atmosphere in the bar is relaxed with comfy high chairs as opposed to the usual bar stools. Background is ambient without being too loud and the girls are friendly, without being pushy. The boss of both of these ventures is a ladyboy named Lek, who also runs the Moulin Rose cabaret in Soi Crocodile.
They have around 8 staff to choose from, who usually divide their time up between the Massage shop and the nearby Corner Bar. Part of the daytime entertainment is watching the staff cross the road as they take turns between the bar and the massage shop.
Tootsies opens at 11am in the morning and closes at Midnight.
