Fed up with loud music, poor service and annoying 'hostesses' and looking for a venue which provides quality food, service and a tranquil atmosphere where one can talk without shouting - then look no further than the AVA Wine Bar. Located in Soi 11 Sukhumvit opposite the President Palace Hotel, it is an oasis of class in a sea of mediocrity.
Visited the premises with 2 mates and enjoyed the ambience and friendliness of the staff. No requests from staff to 'buy them a drink', rather we were left to enjoy our own company, though service was never far from hand if required. Beer prices were on-par with other local places as were spirits drinks. What made the place attractive to us (we have now been back there 3 nights running) was the quiet background music, the friendly, attentive staff and the ambience. Recommended for those who wish to have a quiet drink in a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere.

“worst pub in bangkok come here to get ripped off”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

beware of this place its on soi 11 opposite the president hotel
we stopped for a late night drink because it was near to where were staying
bought the owner a drink and wound up with with a 5300 baht bill
around 1300 baht of wich were beer and wine and 20 lady drinks
at 400 baht each there were 2 girls and the boss in the place at the time
to keep the peace and knowing I would go ape my g\friend didn't tell me till the following morning
so vote with your feet guys
if you want to get ripped off this is the place
I thought the drinks scam was on the wane after all the hoo ha around the patpong gogo bars
it seems it back
talking to others on holiday it seems this place always seems to overcharge that's why its empty and next door is full
if this review stops just one person getting ripped off
its a result

“Nice Wine BAr”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Located on Sukhumvit Soi 11 - the soi with all the big clubs (Bed Supper Club, Q-Bar, etc.). This is a little wine bar. Lovely decorations, nice ambience. Quite a nice place to simply hang out before you go clubing.

“Very Nice Wine bar”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

This is a bar which I went to the first time in year 2000.

Some may remember it as a up-scale pool bar, with hostesses.

They still have hostesses, but the bar has changed it's concept to become a very nice Wine Bar.
They also serve food here.
Both wines and food selections are very good.
Brilliant staff, who is skilled in wines, mixing regular drinks, and very easy to chat with, if one comes alone.
Fantastic location in soi 11, near Bed Supper Club and Q Bar, among other popular night clubs.
Music in Ava is not loud, thus one can actually have a decent conversation here.

I must say I like this bar very much.
