Sihanoukville Nightlife


Sihanoukville is a town that knows how to party and there’s no shortage of bars and nightspots.


Parts of Ochheuteal, Otres and Independ-ence Beaches are lined with shack restaurants the double as bars.


Ochheuteal is by far the busiest and there’s always an all-night bar or party. (Very late, check out Monkey Republic, Utopia, Big Easy and Dolphin Shack on the beach.)

Off the beaches there are several places on Serendipity Beach Road and a couple of plazas near the traffic circle (Pub Street and Sihanoukville Square.)


On the other side of town a dozen-plus hostess, sports and music bars line the top of Victory Hill, some open into the wee hours. The downtown area also has a few places, a couple staying open late, including Charlie Harper’s and G’Day Mate.
