Pub Street is cool for a short while, but the best bars in Siem Reap aren’t there. Check out our guide to the best places to grab a drink in Siem Reap:

Wild Creative Bar & Eatery

WILD has some fantastic cocktails – their ‘Grandma Was a Hippie’ cocktail literally tastes like your childhood, and their ‘So Fresh’ is that only absinthe cocktail we’ve ever had that actually tastes good. Their menu is a spring-rolls-only menu with some unique fillings which make for a great snack, so eat up before (or after) coming here if you have big appetites like us. The venue isn’t huge and mostly outdoors, which does cut available seats during the rainy season, so we recommend making reservations during high season or on weekends.

Pomme Hostel

Yeah you heard us, it’s a hostel with an “s.” But you’d never know that walking in – with a vibrant colour palette and modern decor, Pomme feels more like an upscale bistro than a place that offers dorm accommodations. In a word, it’s slick. With a brand new pool table, welcoming international bar staff, and a gorgeous outdoor space for events and the local music scene, it’s a great place to find that buzzing energy without being accosted by staff trying to sell you $10 pub crawl t-shirts.

Frequented by locals, expats, and tourists alike, it’s a great place to stop by on their weekly live music events, poker nights, and surprisingly good drinks menu.

Wine O'Clock

24/7 wine and cheese board deliveries. Custom charcuterie plates, baguette sandwiches, croissant toasties, devilled eggs, and crostini. This place has something for everyone, and you can order on WhatsApp to preserve all the details. Forewarning: this menu is so amazing please give yourself 20 minutes for your first time perusing. We claim small victories in not ordering this every single day- just most days.

Silk Garden

You know that dive bar at home that is simply fantastic, but you don’t have the vocabulary to explain why? That’s Silk Garden, Siem Reap’s very own outdoor dive bar just dripping with je ne sais quoi. Hiding right behind the notorious Temple club and only accessible by tiny alleyways, this is a fantastic venue to start your night out. Popular with the local scene, Silk Garden regulars include musicians, NGO workers, and food tour operation managers.

Picasso Bar

The drinks here are the usual international fare – however this bar is a haunt for Siem Reap residents as it’s just built for socializing. Just off pub street, the U-shaped bar encourages everyone to talk to each other, and the bartenders are very friendly. If you’ve been traveling a while or solo and missing some quality banter or perhaps some perspective into Siem Reap residency, come here! They’ve also got plenty of games, cards, and the like, and if you ask nicely they’ll play songs on request.
