    Sisowath Quay: Sisowath Quay

    by kenningst Written May 28, 2008

    This is the name of the road which runs along the Tonle Sap river. Along this road you will find that it is filled with restaurant, bars and pubs which are really nice to hang out and have a beer. You will find locals buzzing around this area around evening time and you if you want to do some people watching, this place is a good place to be around that time. I had dinner in one of the restaurants here as well and I really enjoyed it.

    Night Market: Night Market near the riverside

    by Snipernurse Written Mar 9, 2008

    Go for a stroll through the night market near the riverside. You can taste some of the different delicacies and beers local to the area and shop for some souvenirs. There will probably be music playing and other cultural things of interest. Check it out!

    I had a lot of fun here. I was invited to share a bottle of vodka with cambodians when i arrived immediately. The play the same music and is pretty crowded. They have one pool table that is hard to get a spot to play. I visited here a couple of nights and left about 6AM I believe.

    Sofas, cosy chairs with cushions. Playstation 2 with plenty of games to chose from. I discovered the delights of burnout. Crashing cars perfect. Also there is a pool table, connect four, Jenga and many other board games. Drinks reasonably priced. Good place to meet people and have fun!

    Rising Sun: English Pub

    by traceyspacey Written Jun 5, 2007

    This is supposed to be an English pub, it looks it. But why have Country and Western music all night on a friday? A pub with a confused image. Staff are friendly and it's reasonably priced.

    Bogie and Bacall: Drinking 1940's style

    by traceyspacey Written Jun 5, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We stumbled across this place. 1940's style. Felt really welcome here. It was opened as a hostess bar, the owner told us that alot of expats come here. Sundays all drinks 1 dollar. The owner is knowledgeable of the area, really helpful. They do have rooms here for 15 dollars, didn't see them but I imagine they would be good having seen the bar.

  • The drunken frog and Elswhere: Great spots in PP

    by lottie2007oz Written Feb 17, 2007

    Hi, I just feel that I shoul dlet everyone goin gto Phnom Penh know about a really great bar. It is in the lakeside area (Boeung kak) and is called the drunken frog.
    It's laid back and very firendly.
    Whilst I hate lakeside I would always go there for a few drinks after work or for a boozy saturday night, purely because of this bar.
    It's great fun and there also, recently has opened up a vodka bar downstairs (The drunken frog is a rooftop bar).
    Look out for it when you rin lakeside. You'll Love it.
    Also Elsewhere is very nice (not in lakeside). It has a lovely relaxing feel with fairy lights dotted all around the garden and a small swimming pool. It also serves food. Alot of NGO's come here.

    Phnom Penh by Night: Phnom Penh by Night

    by Cathy&Gary Updated Sep 25, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is great when there are a few of you.

    Hire cyclos and go to various locations around Phnom Penh and have a drink etc.
    Organise for the cyclo drivers to pick you up from the Elephant Bar (after you have had a few drinks) then go to the Sunway Hotel for a cocktail.

    Go past some local markets, past Wat Phnom, stop for another drink somewhere, go to Sanderson Park and see the Dove of Peace, (made from weapons) stop at Pon Lok for dinner, then off to the Gym Bar.

    Its great fun and takes about 4 hours.

    The company we used are called The Cyclo Company and they only charge $5 per person. they are located near the Central Markets.

  • Coyote Ugly: Nice entertainment and good food

    by expat_at_phnom_penh Written Jul 11, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I have been quite a few times in this really good bar in Phnom Penh. It is Coyote Ugly, located at the northwest side of Wat Phnom where there is a small cluster of bars.

    They have around 12 very pretty hostesses. Not too pushy also. In the early evening it is ok to go even with family, later it is a bit wild sometimes.

    Prices are really nice, during happy hour draft beer is only 70 cents. Full selection of spirits also. It is a perfect place to go for a dirty beer after work. Once you sit down, you will be given a ice cold wet towel to relax your face and a massage for your neck if you want. Nothing better after a hard day at work.

    Food is also good, they have probably the best pizza in Phnom Penh and good burgers. Also steaks and Khmer dishes.

    For a lonely man or a group of friends it is a great place to spend evening. Girls are friendly and pooltable is free.

    I really enjoyed my every visit there.

    I recommend it!

  • Equinox: Outstanding new cocktail bar

    by marco76 Written Mar 20, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I was last friday in this new place in Phnom Penh of which everybody is talking about for 2 month now.
    I just wanted to check it out on a friday night, as i know it's usually the good evening to go out in Phnom Penh.
    It's looking quite good from the outside, the bar sits on two floors, in a large house, the street is well known to be safe and lighted at night, so i walked in, passed by a large room with a pool table, had a look in and to my surprise, found an original Bonzini fusball table, imported from France !
    Since the gaming room was pretty quiet, appart from the charming waitress who welcomed me with a warm smile, i decided to check out upstairs.
    There i was really impressed, in the entrance, i walked into a painting gallery, which i sure didn't expect to find here ! The paintings are very originals and pretty talented, especially considering the actual state of Cambodian art scene.
    From the gallery, i discover that there is another room open to the public, but it's still not the bar ! This time it's a fashion shop ! Lots of nice clothing, designed and made by the painter, Soumey, a young khmer whom i meet at this occasion. A very smiling and touching guy, truely deserve some support ;)
    Finally, i make it to the bar, which is on the large balcony. The decor here make me think of an intimate jazz café, maybe because of the red curtains, and the framed black and white pictures on the walls.
    After a few fine cocktails and glass of wines, i felt hungry and had a wonderfull pizza, lots of cheese, thin pastry...lovely.
    While i was eating, a few musicians showed up (apparently they are on every thursday) and started playing some new orleans blues/folk music. The place started to fill up with people from various countries. A saxophone joined the jam. Great athmosphere !
    Prices are very reasonable, considering the environment, so i believe it's a good value as well.
    On the whole, probably the best place i've seen in Phnom Penh so far, highly recommended !

    Salt Lounge: Chic little bar

    by AndreSTGT Updated Jan 21, 2006

    This is a really cool little place. We only went in because it looked very appealing from outside, nothing like anything you'd expect in Phnom Penh. Very hip with white couches, neon-lit, a stylish bar, modern big city chic to perfection. Music is electronic chill-out and suits the ambiance, you could almost be in London or Berlin. Absolutely unique in Phnom Penh.
    After we had entered and lolled about on the couch we realised that the place was full of young handsome locals who were quite ostentatiously gay, but even though we were a mixed couple everyone was abolutely friendly with us and the service was great. Cocktails such as Pina Colada go for 2,50$. The Salt Lounge is a fantastic place to chill, gay or not...

    FuBar: Great place for drinks & movies

    by kat2000 Written Oct 29, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I would definitely recommend Fu Bar it is a great place for a night out. We went loads while we were in Phnom Penh, I especially loved getting to see all the English comedies as they have a tv room for movies & stuff- ideal to chill out in!. You can order food from one of the local restuarants that gets delivered to Fubar too. They have a thing going with Sunrise Guesthouse where you can get a free beer at Fubar if you steal a small bear from Sunrise.

    When you see 'Irish Bar' you think it's a theme Bar, but this Bar is run by an Irish Man called Tom... his best own customer!
    Polite and friendly bar, which has a gaelic charm about it.

    Sharky Bar: The most notorious bar in the Far East?

    by iwys Written Apr 14, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sharky Bar is one of the most notorious nightspots in the Far East. It's the number one hangout for expats and Cambodian bar girls. It's owned by an American and all of the staff speak English. There's a pool table, fast food and American rock music of the late 60s and early 70s (the owner's era) plays in the background. it's not just a hostess bar; it's the hub of the local expat community. On Sunday eveningss there is a BBQ with spare ribs and pork chops, and the Angkor draft beer flows freely.

    Customers arrive late and it's open until the early hours.

    Dress Code: Casual. Although some of the girls do wear a lot of makeup.
