Phnom Penh Nightlife: Best Bars and Nightclubs 2017

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
Phnom Penh has one of the most bizarre and interesting nightlife in Asia. In terms of development, the city is still far behind Bangkok, Saigon , Jakarta or Manila : There are almost no skyscrapers, few modern malls, fewer cars, etc. This also translates into more poverty, poor public services (bad road maintenance, garbage) and average infrastructure (bumpy roads, slow internet, occasional power cuts). These characteristics reflect onto the nightlife. In the absence of a large middle class, you'll find it rare to meet normal girls in clubs. The most popular ones are packed with prostitutes, but many will play the girlfriend card if you are willing to take care of them. The rules are relaxed: Several clubs close late in the morning and a few bars stay open 24/7. Hotels are generally girl-friendly. You can get around without helmet on a rented motorbike. Drugs are everywhere.

Casa Nightclub and Hotel (Phnom Penh)

By Thibaud (Jakarta100bars) →
Casa is a nightclub, karaoke and hotel in Phnom Penh catering mostly to a wealthy local and Chinese clientele. It is located in Wat Phnom, about 500 meters from the riverside and from the town center.  If you are interested to stay there for the night, you can check the price and the latest guest reviews here: Casa Hotel Phnom Penh . Foreigners are rare inside. They don't like the Chinese-style techno-pop music, the over-the-top and kitsch design and the absence of a real dance floor. The club also has a seedy reputation, both because of the use of drugs and the prostitution. Casa is indeed famous for having high-class escorts from Vietnam or China, working either in the karaoke or in the main disco. They are more pricey mostly because of their whiter skin color.
