Ava Lounge Reviews
This is just a review for the rooftop lounge. We did not stay at the hotel, but were told by friends to go to the bar. So happy they did! Great comfortable seating, many layers of patios all around... more »
Met some friends who live in town who took us to AVA for a few drinks and nice view of the city. The decor at AVA is very cool. Some might find it tacky but it has a Mad Men, post modern flow that I.... more »
My experience here started off fantastic but ended off horrible. Me and a friend were sitting at a table with an opened tab having drinks, and at around 10:00pm we were told that we had to leave this table because it was reserved. I said ok, can we finish our drinks (my friend just ordered a around of fresh drinks)? He said yes but not here, and suggested that we go to the rooftop. At this point I felt very infuriated and insulted. I said that this was tacky as hell, and he said excuse me so I repeated myself. I then proceeded to close my $134.00 tab and was told, excuse me you do know that the gratuity isn't included right? I simply looked at her with disgust and said ok! You have to be kidding me. In the future it would be a better business practice to inform the customers at least an half an hour before their table is reserved. Not at said time, and the party is standing over you waiting for you to get up. If this isn't tacky and unprofessional, I don't know what is. Nevertheless, THIS WAS MY FIRST AND MY LAST TIME VISITING THIS ESTABLISHMENT AND I WILL BE CONTACTING THE BBB FOR SURE!
I am a native New Yorker and will keep to the directness of how we are known to be :) Drinks: Excellent. Food: Excellent! Space: Rooftop bar! Really beautiful views of Times Square. It's designed to feel like a patio. Scene: The Penthouse is swank and eclectic. One section is very art deco and the back is this really cool swank living room. Super sexy venue. It is an open space and conducive to mixing and mingling. Good for get-togethers and date night. This is a great place to take a date out to to impress her or to have a business get together. It usually has standard promoters throughout the week. Crowd: 20-50s Afterwork crowd. Pick-up scene. Mostly corporate types and professionals. Service: Really attentive staff. But there is only 1 bar to order drinks from and that's in the Penthouse level, not on the roof.
