Reasonable prices, attentive staff and fun drag show. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming without being pushy. Good atmosphere and well worth multiple visits. Especially liked the artists chatting to the patrons after the show.

We first went here on a Thursday evening and it was pretty dull. We decided to give it another chance on a Sunday, our last evening in Phnom Penh, and the place was completely different. It was crowded and there was only standing space. The waiter was wending his way through the crowd serving drinks. The attraction was the dag... More

Nice cosy bar located just off street 19, so very close to most things in Phnom Penh including plenty of good street food. Very friendly snd fun staff. As with most gay bars in Cambodia, it is busy with gay men, however I felt very welcome being a female. Busy on weekends with drag shows and a stage. Cool atmosphere... More

Very friendly staff. Not over priced and very strong drinks. Have been a couple of times and am made feel welcome. Locals & tourists all friendly and easy to chat too. Definitely worth a try.

Expected a laid back cabaret bar, instead it's just a shophouse with full on money boys and a dreary, predictable drag act. Perhaps we chose two off nights. There are myriad better avenues in PP.

A really cozy bar in Phnom Penh By far the best drag queen performance I have seen. Ru Paul's type of performance! Come and enjoy it
