Vintage vibes and 60s architecture at Old School Bar in Phnom Penh

Old School Bar is the latest place for young people to hang out in a charming 1960s building, complete with an open-air courtyard dotted with fairy lights. Yousos Apdoulrashim

Old School Bar opened its doors in May. It serves beer ($1.50 to $3 per bottle, while draught beer is 3 litres for $14) and Asian food (prices start from $2.50 to $5).

The 25-year-old began selling food and beverages from his cart after dropping out of the National University of Management, armed with just a black board menu and a few low tables and chairs under a parasol.

“I was a vendor selling cocktails on the street behind Royal Palace. I was there for two years and faced problems with a shortage of seats and space for my clients,” Sovathanak told The Post.

"Fortunately for Sovathanak – who has a hobby of collecting vintage items, especially vintage pictures of old Western celebrities – he found a charming building for rent just a 10-minute walk from his cocktail cart."

"Old School Bar is located on Street 254 behind Cellcard Telecommunication Company, near Independence Monument. It is open from 5pm to 12am every day. "

“It is interesting architecture and it was most likely built in the 1960s. I’m not quite sure about the history of this building as it has been bought and sold many times before I came,” Sovathanak said."

The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

Despite your prolific posting @Kung-fu Hillbilly, the vast majority make for very interesting reading. I, for one, have no issues. You save the rest of us having to search for anything lol
