Traveling is a fun and life-changing experience, but it's also a time for you to make unique memories. If you're heading to Cambodia (or thinking about it) you should make an everlasting memory by checking out the Cambodia nightlife.

If you're unsure of what nightlife Cambodia has to offer, we got you covered. To see what bars, party spots, and clubs you can find in Cambodia keep reading our ultimate guide below.


Anywhere you go in the world there will be an endless number of bars. To make sure you choose the right bar to drink at, we have singled out Cambodia's best.

Angkor What? Bar

The Angkor What? Bar was the first bar to appear on Pub Street in Siem Reap. This spot has been attracting tourists and backpackers since 1998 and has been a destination spot in the Siem Reap, Cambodia, nightlife scene.

The coolest part about this bar is that there is a wall covered in neon graffiti. You can even dance the night away on their dance floor.

The Hardrock Cafe

A classic bar that can be found in any corner of the world, the Hard Rock Cafe in Cambodia is located in Angkor. This bar provides a classic rock feel and attracts visitors and locals alike. If you're looking for a great party spot, look no further than the Hard Rock Cafe.

Laundry Bar

If you're looking for a popular bar with a great atmosphere, look no further than Laundry Bar located on Street 9 in Siem Reap. This bar is one of the oldest bars in the country and is a favorite for locals. Since most tourists are unaware of Laundry Bar's relaxed atmosphere, you will be mingling with the locals.

Elephant Bar at Raffles Grand Hotel d'Angkor

If you're looking for a more classy bar then you need to check out Elephant Bar at Raffles Grand Hotel d'Angkor. This bar is located within the Raffles Grand Hotel d'Angko in Siem Reap.

Elephant Bar was established in the 1960s and offers an elegant atmosphere with its wooden architecture and leather sofas. If you want to go on a nice date or see the lavish lifestyle of the locals, grab a drink here.


Bars are nice for those who want to have a laid back night after traveling. If you're someone that wants to check out the lively Cambodia nightlife then it's a good idea to head to a club.

Heart of Darkness

This is one of the most popular clubs in Cambodia because it used to be the only one you would find in Phnom Penh. Head to the Heart of Darkness to dance your butt off and meet locals.

This club is popular for attracting people from many walks of life. They offer a spacious dance floor and a nice seating area to take a breather.

True Face Club

This club is for the rich locals that don't mind dropping some money on a nice bottle of whiskey or two. True Face Club is located in Khmer and is a small, hole-in-the-wall place.

For its size, it has a big dance floor and spacious layout. You will find more locals and regulars here than tourists and visitors.


Pontoon is another nightclub located in Phnom Penh. Usually, people will club hop from Heart of Darkness to Pontoon to dance into the morning light.

This club opened in 2010 and is located right across from the Heart of Darkness. Most people say this is the best club in the city to party at, so why not try it out for yourself? This club is also popular for tourists and travelers.

Party Spots

If going to a single club or bar isn't your speed, why not go to an area that offers multiple places to party? In these areas of Cambodia, you will find bars and clubs just a few feet from each other so you can party all night long.


Sihanoukville has quickly become one of the must-see places in Cambodia. This beach town offers bars, hotels, restaurants, and clubs for backpackers and locals alike.

People usually like to take a party boat in the daytime where you can dance and drink to your heart's content. After getting back on land, they switch the party to one of the many clubs along the beach.

Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh is the capital of Cambodia and offers extensive nightlife opportunities. We have named a few bars above that are located in Phnom Penh, but that isn't even a fraction of what's in the city limits.

This city has a reputation for the nightlife scene that has been booming the past few years. Since it's so popular with locals all over the country and travelers, you're bound to have an unforgettable time.

Siem Reap

Siem Reap offers a whole street dedicated to partying. This street is known as Street 9, and it's lined with bars, nightclubs, and restaurants.

This street has bars tailored to travelers, locals, and even both so they can mingle. If you're looking for a non-stop party spot, Street 9 is your end all be all destination.
