Nightlife Area in Phnom Penh Planning to Open a Pub Street just like Siem Reap

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Sun Mar 11, 2018 8:25 am

It's a new trend. Cambodia needs more Pub Streets. Phnom Penh wants a Pub St too. You can not have too many Pub Sts. Siem Reap has a Pub St. Sihanoukville has many Pub Sts. It is time for a Pub Street in Phnom Penh.

Nightlife in Phnom Penh is on the increase, and with so many tourists visiting, city authorities have decided to open a Pub Street.
Mr. Jen Narith, Director of Tourism Office of Khan Daun Penh, said that the Authority base as well as Department of Tourism are planning to make a Pub St on street no136 and street 113 up to the museum. Also there are always many people interested in visiting the bars along the street 136, 130 on road no.5 in Sisovath boulevard, street 172 , street 174 in sangkat New Market 3, and a lot of people call that area Pub Street. There are 200 bars and KTVs along there.

So they're planning on creating a "pub street" for tourists on one of the streets with the most hostess bars in town, that would make it more like Pattayas or Phukets "Walking streets".

It would be nice if there was a "pub street" in Phnom Penh, I think it would do very well with tourists/backpackers & some expats. A bit like Khao San/Siem Reap pub street. Not even sure of the closest we currently have to that, 278?

What we don't need is another hostess bar street, I think there are already enough to choose from.

Maybe the new GSM will provide something a little different, although more than likely to turn into the old GSM than anything else

They must mean Street 13, which has very few bars or restaurants. The only undeveloped part, besides Kandal market, is the patch behind Wat Ounalom. Can't see that going down too well with the monks.

What side? The riverside is probably slightly underdeveloped, although bars open and close all the time down there. It is just not a good location.

Street 13 side had all of the street BBQ places (that don't have any real land). South of that are a few restaurants, friends ngo and that's about it. Not sure there is too much scope for development. They have just opened the royal palace park as some kind of night market too

In Sieam Reap, the pub street it's restaurants, disco, pubs, street vendor, massage parlor, the market, ... but no girly bar or I missed them.
