5 Best Nightclubs in Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh’s Most Popular Nightclubs

The best nightclubs in Phnom Penh are ideal for a fun night out with the city’s trendy locals and expats, hosting vibrant parties, excellent music playlists by talented DJs, and attractive happy hour promos every night. Phnom Penh’s nightlife scene is also notorious for its adults-only entertainment, with working girls approaching travellers for a chat and drink. While Riverfront (Sisowath Quay) is the most popular nightlife district in Phnom Penh, we highly recommend exploring a little further towards backpacker-friendly areas of BKK1 and Independence Monument for hidden gems that are well worth the extra effort.

You’ll also find that swankier establishments require cover charges for special events with renowned DJs, but drinks here are much cheaper compared to European standards. Read on for our list of Phnom Penh’s most popular nightclubs, all of which are fitted with spacious dancefloors, modern sound systems, and friendly bartenders serving a wide range of beers, cocktails, shooters and wines.
