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

This is a bar, restaurant, hotel, brothel all together, but it is the only place open day and night, serving food and drinks at any time.
It is run by some english guys and there ofcourse you can follow all the english soccer league.
Dress Code: No air conditioning inside, so the less you wear, the better.
A Photocopy Shop: A Good Shake in the Evening
If you walk from the Independence monument towards the river, you will see a photocopy shop on your righthand side. This shop turns into a fruitshake place in the evening. A fruitshake is called Tukalok (or something similar) in Khmer.
Even though they use ice, it was safe to drink (for me at least) I had at least five different once and never got sick.Related to:
