With over 5000 bars in Pattaya, you would think that people looking for a nice place to hang out would be spoilt for choice. However, the reality is that after a long days work you don’t want to go to some beer bar, where the music is blaring, girls are screaming and you spend you whole time being pestered by people trying to sell you flowers, watches, movies and a shoe shine.
Thankfully a new bar has emerged on the scene. It is part of the Mercure Hotel, situated behind the Avenue shopping mall and its name is Aqua Lounge & Pub.
A motley crew of local faces in attendance.
The theme for Aqua is straight forward: daily specials and a cool venue with a trendy DJ to keep the ambience at the right level.
The bar has an almost colonial feel to it, yet mixed with contemporary furniture and comfortable sofas overlooking the swimming pool of the Mercure.

Aqua has some new promotions for its launch including ‘Game on’ Monday nights featuring pool, darts and table football, with a drinks promo of buy one beer get one free. Wednesday is Ladies Night, ladies get two free drinks and 50% discount thereafter. Thursday is Sangria night with buy one get one free and the same on Friday, but this time the promo is on Mojitos.
So if you are looking for somewhere to kick back and relax to some cool sounds and to meet new people try Aqua Lounge & Pub at the Mercure for something a little bit different.
