    Happy hour at the Cathouse

    by CliffClaven Written Aug 24, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Phnom Penh has gained a certain reputation for nightlife that is wilder and cheaper than anything you can find in Bangkok or Manila. In the immediate post-UNTAC days, old Cliffie wasn't sure whether he should be more wary of tough Dutch paratroopers or sweet young ladies of the night. Wisely or wimpishly, he avoided both - and thus lived to tell the tale. When old Cliffie was in Phnom Penh, the better places to hang out included the Gecko Bistrot (popular with French paras), the Café No Problem (located in a French colonial villa and ideal for a quiet sundowner before dinner) and the Cathouse (not so wild as the name implies).

    The nightlife is vibrant in...

    The nightlife is vibrant in PP. People don't hide indoors as some people posting on the Net would have you believe, but I can't say what goes on outside PP. Restaurants and clubs are packed until midnight and later. Cars and other vehicles on the roads in PP until quite late at night.

    I went to a local nightclub where foreigners virtually never go. Went with a local contact. Great atmosphere and very cheap. Prices here, as in restaurants and shops, all in American dollars.

    Unique music and dances. I was encouraged to join a local circle dance with Khmer moves and music. Fantastic experience and the Cambodians didn't look at me like I was a crazy foreigner. Not at all threatening; many clubs like this around PP--have a male Cambodian take you.
    Nothing like it anywhere else, even Thailand.

    There are also areas that cater to single males; I didn't visit but my local contact suggested those areas can be dangerous.

    Dress Code: Dress code? Are you serious? But no shorts please.

  • Foreign Correspondent's Club...

    Foreign Correspondent's Club in Phnom Penh
    When you get weary of bar girls, berr girls, prostitutes and discos (average Phnom Penh nightlife), the FCC is a quiet grown up place to go. They show Western movies once a week and used to have a truck to drive patrons back to their hotels after 9pm if you don't care to hire a moto. The clientele is largely Western but the staff is Cambodian and very friendly. There is a bar and pool hall downstairs on the street level and a restaurant owned by a Cambodian American.

    Dress Code: Typically folks dress a little nicer than their regular PP street wear. Lots of journalists and expats -- men usually wear button up or polo shirts, women are fine in skirts or pants.

    There was a man wailing away 80's and 60's music behind the bar, playing on a keyboard. He actually wasn't bad.

    Dress Code: casual
