A great place to have a drink after getting off the mountain. So much atmosphere. The owner Alex is so friendly that if your there more than once I'd say he will greet you with a hug. Lots of guitar playing and singing and great tunes all night.

Thank Timothy B

“Relax central”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

I have been coming to Grindelwald for a few years now and have always had an awesome time with the staff and scene at Avo. The atmosphere the decor depicts is quite rustic but very homely and makes you feel very welcome. One of my favourite things about this place is when Alex, the owner, has a free moment and turns down the music and pulls out the guitar and jams out with his earthy voice. On the other hand, the staff have pulled off some really amazing events, specifically last winter, which drew a massive crowd and was the talk of the town before and after. Good work guys, keep it up and I will definitely recommend the Bar to my friends!

“Cool & Friendly Adventure Sports Bar”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

I can recommend Avocado Bar in the middle of Grindelwald main street, a very laid back & informal atmosphere to suit every type of visitor, from beer, wine, Prossecco or coffee drinkers.
It is very popular with the locals as well as tourists, in both the Winter & Summer seasons.
Owned and run by a chilled out Aussie guy called Alex who has a passion for Snowboarding & Surfing, whilst also being an accomplished guitar player and singer, he has been known to entertain the guests with the odd jam session!
He employs multi lingual and efficient staff, who work as a very enthusiastic team and who often organise allsorts of very popular events throughout the year from Garden Bungee Snowboard Freestyle in the winter to live entertainments on the weekly Wednesday evening village street party's!
Don't forget to ask for the free WiFi password so that you can catch up on all your internet stuff!

“Awesome Place to be!”
Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

Always a place worth stopping by if youre in Grindelwald. If youre lucky you might make it 2 one of their leg(end)ary events if summer or winter. So just pop by and im sure the staff will inform with pleasure.

“Just what we were looking for as tourists”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

So a moi and a bunch of my friends took a trip to Europe and landed in Switzerland for 3 days. Grindelwald wasn't even on our list but the 2 of us got super excited due to the Harry Potter reference. We simply HAD to go there, After clicking a bajillion snaps we were looking around for some nice bar or a cafe to unwind in but couldn't find any. Just then we spotted this bar. Run by Alex (one of the cutest and the friendliest bartenders) we had a ball of a time. Playing Jenga, throwing darts, giving him a peck on the cheek, singing songs, playing the guitar, getting drunk, having the Jagermeister bombs and trying the balance board (?). Imagine 5 tipsy Indians singing songs in Hindi. It was easily the best evenings of our entire trip. We did manage to nick a few coasters and the Jagermeister miniature bottles (empty of course) after taking Alex's permission.

Thank you Alex for an excellent time. I am definitely recommending hitting your bar to everyone I know who decides to foray into Switzerland..
