Siem Reap Pub Street

  • Share & Comment


In the evening in Siem Reap, Cambodia - once people have returned from the temples of Angkor, had a shower and freshened up - the attention switches over to ‘Pub Street’ and the pub street alleys in the Old Market Area.

(bars and nightlife in Siem Reap is concentrated around Pub Street)


Pub Street earned its name from the numerous pubs that line Street 8 and also contains various restaurants, boutiques and shops, but the main focus is certainly on filling up with some food and then hitting the cocktails. The action kicks off at around 17:00hrs once people have returned from the temples. The street is cordoned off to allow tourists to roam freely without the dangers of traffic, and the music begins to get louder as more and more people frequent the bars.

Many of the bars are open until midnight while a few are open until the early hours of the morning, which include ‘Angkor What?’, ‘Temple Club’ and ‘X-Bar’. Nearly every bar or restaurant here will offer happy hour beers for 50 cents and cheap cocktails, but it seems that it is happy hour every hour of every day so you can expect to pound a few brews for next to nothing, no matter when you get there.  Pub Street is aimed directly at western tourists, so don’t go there expecting a genuine Cambodian experience.
