There is no expat bar, but I have seen some expats hanging out by the small shop at the riverside, on the bench.

Lol. I'm just bit nervous I guess. So much stuff to sort out when I get there, namely finding a flat. I really don't want to come back to UK as an expat fail. Image

The Local, Beatnik and Picasso are good expat options.

Draft Bar on Sok San Rd is a fine establishment, serving delicious drinks at reasonable prices with only the highest quality service to a cheerful community of friendly expats and welcoming locals.

I personally am a fan of Laundry(one of my favorite bars, not just in Siem Reap) and Picasso. The Local seems cool, but also seemed a little pricey(by Siem Reap standards) the one time I was there. They're all solid expat hangouts. Belmiro's is another one where I've seen expats when I walk by, but have only been there once. Menaka is good if you're a cocktail person, and I've heard expats talk about it being good, but haven't seen them in there. Ms. Wong's cocktails are pretty meh and overpriced for what they are, and I haven't seen too many expats in there either. If you want something a little cheaper and a little more "dive bar" feel, hit up Sok San. I haven't frequented any bars there yet, but have been to a few. Finn McCools seemed like a pretty cool spot and there were a decent number of expats hanging out, including the expat owner.
