Pup street: Night life in Siem Reap
The name say it all it's a street full of restaurants, bars and loud music. you can't avoided if you're visiting the old market and night market area. I didn't like the general atmosphere of the street I found it rather depressing and dull
PUB STREET: EVERY NIGHT IS A PARTY
Anyone staying at Siem Reap should spend at least one evening in Pub Street, and as the name suggests there are many bars along both sides of the street, and in the side lanes. There are also many restaurants too, and the whole area provides a perfect place to chill out after the hot and tiresome day visiting Angkor Wat. There are also a few massage joints, but beer drinkers will always be able to find a cheap beer as each pub usually has a different Happy Hour. Some places offer free wifi too. Pubs with names like Angkor What, Temple Bar, Molly Malone's line the street from end to end. Great place for people watching too.
FOOD STALLS: EAT AT THE NIGHT MARKET
When you leave Pub Street from the western end there are many Cambodians who set up there night stall, tables and chairs at the side of the road, and start cooking. This is an excellent area to eat at very economic prices. The menu will be in Cambodian but there are English menus for foreigners.
Seam Reap At Night: Seam Reap At Night
The centre of nightlife in Siem Reap is Pub Street which is named for the many restaurants and pubs that line both sides of the road.
The street is closed to traffic at night which makes it a lot easier to walk around.
There are all sorts of bars and restaurants here, you can dine on Thai, Khmer, French, Indian, Italian plus much more.
Its pretty quiet during the day - but still good for lunch - but is always very busy and lively at night.
Most places are open until midnight and a few till dawn!
A few minutes walk from Pub Street is Pub Street Alley, not quite as hectic but a lovely little alley lined with shops, bars, galleries, cafes and Khmer restaurants.

After the sun goes down, the focus shifts firmly a block east of the Old Market to the 'Pub Street' and the nearby alleys, so named for the numerous and varied restaurants and pubs that line Street 8. These days Pub Street is packed end to end with restaurants, boutiques, shops and pubs as are the many of the connecting alleys and passages, each with its own special character.
