What better way to end a day at Angkor Wat than by hitting Pub Street and the Angkor What? bar. This is a bar for backpackers by backpackers. A lot of the bartenders are backpackers and service up great drinks. If you drink two giant bucks they give you a Angkor What ? bar t-shirt or you can purchase them.

I went out and didn't make it back until 4 a.m. and don't know how I made it back to my hostel. I woke up 2 hours after my tuk tuk driver was supposed to meet me to take me to more ancient ruins. It was alright with him because he ended up sleeping across the street in a hamock. Ugh was that hangover horrible in the 105 degree heat!

Angkor What? bar and club Oct 13, 2011
Been travelling around Asia? Seen people wearing them Angkor What Tshirts? Well they are from this club :) and absolutely free, if you drink 2 large buckets of cocktails (if you cant manage that then you can also buy them)

This amazing club/bar is located on Pub Street and Im pretty sure if you have been on Pub Street then you would have seen this place.

This place is one of the few late night bars/clubs (along with temple bar, another good spot), great night life with a DJ playing all the latest music, great atmosphere with friendly staff and fellow travellers, pool table and cheap drink deals!!

Try the Apsara cocktail, little bit pricier than the others but wow!! Its an ice strawberry drink and is soo refreshing after a long hard day of climbing all over the real Angkor Wat

Dark nightclub Apr 16, 2011
First of all, I love the name of this club! Referring to the ruins of Ankor Wat, it just made me laugh! Looking at it from the out side, it looks like a closed down place. Dark with spray paint on the wall. Walking into it, it just as dark as on the outside, everything is black! The people there early in the evening looked kind of dark and scary as well, but as it got later it startet filling up. It turned out to be a great place, filled with party-loving people and good drinks!

Best travel bar Dec 07, 2009
Best travel bar in Siem Reap, bar none.

This is a place you want to go if you are traveling in small groups and want to meet up with like travelers. The bartenders are very nice and they do like to party. They speak really good english and if you ask any questions regarding where to go they will respectfully tell you to keep drinking. :)

It's about 8000 reil or $2 per beer which is a bit more expensive than other bars in the Temple area, but first of all the atmosphere is relaxing and second of all, it is still waaay less expensive than what i'm used to. For about $8 you can get the 3 litre fire hydrant filed with Ankgor beer. Amazing.

The place that rocked my Siem Reap vacation Apr 15, 2009
First of all it is easy to find. Right in the middle of Pub Street where all the touristy places are.

It is owned by an Euro-Indian who grew up in London, Charlie, who's the coolest guy in the world. The drinks were fair-priced and creative, the crowd was totally hip, there were no prostitutes and I would like to bet that 99% of the patrons are foreigners. The music was great, and did I mention that the crowd was hip?!

It's a haven for the backpackers and young people to meet and mingle and everyone is friendly.

Angkor What TF? Apr 14, 2009
located at a very accessible location. charlie, the owner of this bar is very nice and accommodating and has the most extensive music playlist i've ever heard. you can just request any song you want. drinks are relatively cheap, beer would cost at around 4usd per pitcher which is good for 4 people. cocktails in pitcher would start at around 5usd. buy two pitchers in one order and get 1 Angkor What? Bar shirt, very nice thing to bring back home!

Loads of fun and action at dirt cheap price ! Jan 06, 2009
Angkor What ? is one of the most happening night spots along the famous Pub Street in Siem Reap. It's usually packed - the frat house atmosphere is probably due to the mostly young crowd intent on having fun and getting stoned. "Angkor What ?" indeed ! The beer here is served in a plastic spittoon and you drink using straws. At the back people are dancing and jumping away. The energy is infectious.
Angkor What ? dancers.
Having fun.
Drinking from a spittoon.
The bar.

Yes. It's just beside the Old Markets. Just ask for directions for Pub Street and I'm sure you will be pointed the right way.
