Jomtien Beach is a small beach resort just a short taxi ride from South Pattaya. To get there from Pattaya, simply walk along 2nd road and wave down any blue taxi. The price is 10 baht. It's only about a 6 minute ride.
Jomtien has a very limited number of Go-Go bars (Champion a Go-Go is the best) and outdoor beer bars (located right as you turn towards the beach from 2nd road), both gay and heterosexual.
The main advantage of Jomtien is the serenity - there is much less traffic and fewer tourists. Also, the ocean water is clean enough to smim in and if you enjoy bathing in the sun, you'll find much company in the way of tourists (mostly European) from all over the world.

I went to the winchester bar a while ago. It's a bitch to find. I went with a few friends, all of whom have been living here for years on end and even with them we had trouble finding the place. So how to you get there then? Best thing is to take the blue taxi from South Pattaya into Jomtien. The fare is 10 baht per person. Once you get to Jomtien Beach, hire out a private motorbike driver to take you to Winchester. The fare should be only 10-20 baht as it will be less than a five minute ride. Once you know where the place is on your return visit, you can walk it once you get to Jomtien.
I thought the girls there were fairly cute, but not cute enough to bar fine. To each his own...I'm sure some will say the place is great.
