Phnom Penh has an ever increasing variety of places for that special night out.
Located in Raffles Hotel Le Royal The Elephant Bar offers a glimpse into the splendour of the city’s colonial past. The Lounge Lobby & Bar of the InterContinental Hotel also offers five-star comfort, with deluxe sofas, bespoke spirits and single malts.
The Himawari Microbrewery is a craft brewery and bar inside the hotel of the same name, a refreshingly original option. Bouchon Wine Bar features a fine selection of French wines, cocktails, craft beers and cocktails, housed inside (and outside) an authentic colonial mansion.
Metro Hassakan on the Riverside combines chic decor and a cosmopolitan atmosphere. On the riverfront you’ll find KWest, a long-standing upmarket bar, while rooftop bar Le Moon offers a spacious area to sip a cocktail and enjoy the river vistas.
Up the riverfront, Chinese House opens its majestic wooden doors for expertly-mixed cocktails and mouthwatering fusion food. The building alone is worth the visit, a beautifully restored but respected Chinese merchants house.
