Victory beach, Sihanoukville

Postby doktor_d » Sun May 18, 2014 3:24 pm

I was quite disappointed when Brown's shut up shop and the owner decided to move on to do other things. It was one of my favourite places to enjoy a couple of ice cold drafts while reading the newspapers or a couple of chapters of whatever book I was reading at the time. Or just have a chat with the easy going, laid back barkeep..

I even kept going back there when some older French guys took it over.

It was one of the most quiet of the beaches in Sihanoukville. And one of the cleanest. And the customers seemed to be mostly expats and long time visitors to Cambodia.

Anyway.. That's all gone now.. even the Russian place next to the former Brown's, and all the other beach side places on that side are all gone. Seems they're building another luxury resort or something there.

you can go see David out at Otres.

He didn't move to other things, was forced out as the landlord wanted Mucha $$ to renew his lease.

So he's at Otres now? I heard he was working at some up scale hotel not far from victory beach.. Anyway, I didn't really know him.. Just enjoyed the place he ran and the occasional chat over a couple of beers.

no, he's manning the show at OC resort on Otres (the restaurant/bar/beachfront) and doing a bang up job of it. Mine and the wife's favorite place to relax with a drink, have a nice meal, and go for a swim if the mood takes us. They even provide towels and the rinse off stations have hot water with provided soap and shampoo. Quite nice.

Good info. I'll head over there next time I'm in Sihanoukville and say hello and check the place out.
