Golden Sorya Mall transformed into "Phnom Penh Pub Street"

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

-or- they are promised that all the other bars catering to barangs will be closed down and they will have monopolies
Sounds possible also, but when you see the rent they askin in the jet contener market and all those ghost contener market(600-800$ + for a bar that is smaller then a jail cell), it could just be stupidity as well, time will tell i guess

Made a rare visit to 51 over the weekend. Popped in to the Pub Street complex. Popped out 1 minute later. It was fancier that what I expected and an improvement over the old model, but just tumbleweeds. Maybe it'll pick up during the high season. Mixing it up with a food court and restaurants would have been a better idea. I remember when the original GSM opened, and they had alleyways of women's clothing shops. The young manager proudly told me it was his idea. I could see that putting everyone together in one spot selling the same product will lead to everyone cutting each other throats and all would lose. It looks like they're trying that formula again.
