Riverhouse ?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Riverhouse ?

Post by Duncan » Wed Nov 06, 2019 8:02 am

Riverhouse, corner of 110 street and riverside looks closed down . Anyone have news.

Also the Chinese [ 7/11 ? ] convenience shop next door has closed down, and is available for lease at $2000 per month. as told to me by the Khmer owners.

They changed name and rebranded after it was sold a couple years ago. They’ve changed the color from red to blue, according to the bartender it’s because the German owner is a homosexual.

Additionally they’ve put a wall where there was previously a more private corner couch area. The upstairs has been removed too. I don’t know where all the space went, but Oskar has doubled in size. I guess that’s where.

And it’s no longer called Riverhouse. It is now called The Golden Flamingo Lounge & Bistro. I am not joking.

Someone told me that where Riverhouse is--- they are opening Duplex 2 .. anyone know?
After looking at another thread, they probably mistaken the location of Chinese House for Riverhouse most likely..

Duplex opened some new operation at Chinese House. Apparently it has very tasteful interior design.

Idiots.
I hate people that make these basic mistakes about birds, especially just to guild the lilly by painting them gold.
The Flamingo species that very occasionally pops up in Cambodia is the Greater Flamingo - not the Golden.

FFS - You don't need to jazz-up a f'ing pink flamingo if you are setting up a gay bar.

Golden Flamingo has been gone for weeks. Now renovating and apparently going to be Riverhouse again, according to the jobs sign.
No matter how much it rains, the dirt never washes away.
