        Khmer-run bar welcoming gays and lesbians. Popular drag show on Fri and/or Sat night. Attracts a wide variety of locals and visitors because it's one of the best places to meet gay-identified local men. Charming and flirty staff make you feel right at home. Easy listening music at a comfortable volume early in the evening. Dance with their DJ as the night runs on and into the early hours. Some lesbians, especially weekends.

    • Space Hair Salon and Bar UTOPIA VISITED JUL 2016
        #66 Street 136, Utopia Map
        089-963-066, email

        This gay and lesbian-friendly hair salon becomes an everybody-friendly gay bar after 7pm (they serve drinks during the afternoon also) when the music kicks in (nice selection of less typical club songs). Extensive cocktail menu features premium alcohol; fresh guava, pineapple and espresso mixers; and top recipes from 5-star hotels. Icy double jugs of beer available. Wi-fi. Great, friendly gay staff, zany antics, and jaw-dropping costume changes. A friendly atmosphere where local gay Khmer, expats and visitors can meet and make friends. Tons of fun.

    • Strange Fruit UTOPIA VISITED JUL 2016
        On 2/F of a small wooden house on the south side of St 19z, just off St 19, Utopia Map

        We'd like to write a love poem about this little straight-and-women-friendly gay bar! Owner, Veasna, has created a bit of magic, tucked away in a quiet alley behind the Royal Palace. Climb the stairway at the side and find yourself inside an old wooden house, with creaky floorboards, humble furnishings, imaginative details, and art by established and emerging Khmer gay artists. The bar is frequented by some of Cambodia's brightest young, creative professionals and in-the-know expats. The vibe exudes casual ease, unselfconscious playfulness and sex appeal. Chill indoors, or hang out on the quiet balcony with view of humble city interiors and red lanterns swaying in the breeze. Try the Strange Fruit signature cocktail, with Sugar Palm fruit, or their cucumber/lime/mint Gin Tonic. Cool music mix at a conversation-friendly level. Open 5-11pm, Mon-Sat. Closed Sun.
