Phnom Penh Nightlife


Phnom Penh is a good little party town, offering a heady dusk till dawn nightlife and a variety of places from which to choose - dance clubs and discos, sports bars, neighborhood pubs, hostess bars and more.

Bars and clubs are scattered across the town, but as the city is fairly compact it’s never more than a 5 or 10 minute ride between places. Making it even easier, there are several little clusters of bars around town allowing you to easily hop from one to the next.

The riverfront area area sports the most places with dozens of bars stretching along Sisowath Quay and up several of the side streets. Street 104 and Street 136 both harbor goodly collections of sports and hostess bars.

Very late night Street 51 is one of the busiest bar streets in town. The couple of blocks between Streets 154 and 174 is lined with varied bars and clubs open into the early morn, including Pontoon, The Heart of Darkness and Golden Sorya Mall, now buzzing with shoebox bars. Street 51 is also a good place for a midnight snack. Half a dozen burger carts line the street and there are a few late night eateries in the Mall.
