Siem Reap has two distinct nightlife areas, Pub Street and Khmer Pub Street with one aimed towards westerners and the other towards locals and Chinese tourists. There are many ways to party and meet nice local girls in Siem Reap and going to the club is easily the most popular one.
While you can find many freelance Khmer girls in these clubs who often come here alone, there are also many “normal” girls like students or girls with normal day jobs who just come with a few friends and want to have a good time.
How much money do I need in the night clubs in Siem Reap?
The great thing about the night clubs is that they don’t have any cover charge for you to enter them and also the drink prices are fairly cheap, like you can get a beer for 2 to 3 USD per bottle, draft beer is even cheaper or if you buy a 1-liter jug it’s about 4 USD. Spirits and cocktails are similar cheap at about 3-4 USD. It’s fairly easy to get in touch with a nice local girl who doesn’t ask for any money (but they can be quite shy in the beginning). If you are looking to get a hooker instead in one of the clubs you are not just paying her drinks but also a certain price for sex and that’s around $30-$50 US Dollars.
Location: Street 11, Mondol 1 Village, 17252, Siem Reap, Cambodia
Open: Daily from 10am to to 3am
Cheers Club is probably the closest thing to what you’d call a proper club on Pub Street. As you would expect of its location, they offer cheap beers and cocktails and a great atmosphere with a mostly tourist crowd, though it is also pretty popular with locals. Add a good mix of music played very loud through a high-quality sound system and you have one of the best nightclubs in Siem Reap.
Classic Hip Hop Club
Location: Sok San Rd, Krong Siem Reap, Cambodia
Open: Daily from 5pm until late
Hip Hop Club is located a couple of streets over from its sister bar Temple Club on Pub Street in Siem Reap and is much more like what you would describe as a night club. Despite the name, a lot of the music played isn’t actually hip-hop, but mostly Khmer music and some international house beats.
Being away from Pub Street, the venue attracts more locals than tourists and has a pretty cool atmosphere, good drinks prices and some nice seating areas, including a lounge upstairs with a few pool tables. Don’t bother going before 10pm though, or you’ll be the only ones there.
Location: Pub Street, Siem Reap, Cambodia
Open: Daily from 8am to late
Temple is arguably not really a club. It is a lot of other things – restaurant, bar and Apsara dance theatre, to start with – but the space for dancing is a little limited. Even so, it’s one of the most popular venues on Pub Street.
With the budget beverages flowing at the standard Pub Street price of draft beer at US$0.50, the place gets really lively after about 11pm. Being in the heart of the main Siem Reap nightlife hub, it naturally attracts a mostly tourist crowd.
