Bar and clubs along the river in Phnom Penh provide a hopping nightlife scene. There’s no shortage of happy hours (some are advertised as lasting all day, making the term a bit irrelevant) and travelers can find a welcoming watering hole every few feet. Be sure to stop by the Foreign Correspondents Club while you’re in the area; it will give you a prime riverfront view and a nice cocktail. The Street 104 area is lined with small pubs like The Cavern and Pickled Parrot, as well as lounge bars like Rose Bar and Night Owl. For a more relaxed expat crowd, head to places like Equinox and Elsewhere for live music, cocktails and even a swimming pool. Another alternative is to rent a riverboat cruise at sunset and create your own nightlife.
