Pontoon opinion

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.

Here's my opinion of Pontoon in case someone's interested:

Thuggish disco really sucks

I've been to this place about 20-30 times, the only reason is there's not that many choices late night and I lived in
PP for 3 years. This place is thuggish and the music absolutely sucks.
There's so many mean looking security guards watching every move it's ridiculous. On a Thursday night there were about 20 people dancing and 4 mean looking security guards standing on the side watching them dance. One of the guys was walking around like a complete clutz acting like some boot camp intructor in the middle of the place. So unprofessional. So rude.
Very hard to find a place to sit down because half the tables are marked as reserved despite being completely empty.

They have some sort of a class system going, rich khmers get these tables if they buy bottles, so you see some bored to death looking 40+ year old women sitting on the sides by themselves at empty tables, while other people can't sit down.
The place feels like it's all about showing off how rich you are with what drinks you can buy.
As for the music. Wtf is this? It's some mix which is 80% no-name speed disco music, 15% songs that were cool three years ago, and 5% summer favorites that have been so overplayed it hurts to hear them.
Sounds shitty. The type of place I'd go into once and never go back. Thanks for the tip, now I know I'll never go in even once. If youve been in 20 to 30 times I suggest you find a new late night "hobby"!

I was on the Pontoon the night it sunk. It’s never been that exciting ever again.
It was still floating last time I was there. It was a nice location but even with nobody else there it took 20 minutes to get served. I wouldn't go anywhere near St 51 in the daytime besides passing through so fuck being around there at night.
Silence, exile, and cunning.
