  • 1. Miss Wong

    A favorite haunt of creative types, eclectic expats, and guests from exclusive resorts, this bar stands out with its sexy 1920s Shanghai-kitsch aesthetic—red walls, gold lanterns, and low lighting. Immersed in an era of glamorous decadence, guests are easily seduced into tasting cocktails made using local herbs, such as the apricot liqueur and Kaffir lime–infused gin martini. Dim sum and Asian-fusion finger food are also on the menu.

    The-Lane, Siem Reap, Siem Reap, Cambodia
  • 2. Samai Distillery

    Difficult to find but well worth the effort, this microdistillery-bar, near the Aeon Mall, is one of the trendiest joints in Phnom Penh. Their excellent Samai rum is distilled on-site in 200-year-old copper stills and makes a great base for the Moorish-Asian-inspired cocktails. The downside: it's only open on Thursday nights.

    9b St. 830, Phnom Penh, Phnom Penh, Cambodia
  • 3. The Yellow Sub

    Old Market

    This off-the-wall, four-story gastropub is the owners' gushing tribute to the Beatles, whose memorabilia—and even personal objects such as toys, paintings, and family photos—decks practically every surface. Wacky cocktails such as the bubblegum martini are complemented by snacks like crunchy popcorn-crusted prawns. It's a real hit with the expat crowd. Take in the sunset over Siem Reap from the lovely fourth-floor terrace.

  • 4. Asana Old Wooden House

    Old French Quarter

    A grown-up playground strewn with hammocks, wooden bar stools, and tree-trunk tables, Asana is uniquely located in one of the few remaining old, traditional Khmer houses in Siem Reap. It attracts a fun, artsy crowd and hosts occasional performances. Among a list of regular snacks and drinks, try the signature cocktail—tamarind sauce, made with rum, tamarind juice, Kaffir leaf, and lemony rice-paddy herbs. You can sign up for a cocktail-making class, too.

    St. 7 and The Lane, Siem Reap, Siem Reap, Cambodia
  • 5. Bassac Lane

    Boeung Keng Kang 1

    Once a sleepy residential lane, this road has been transformed in recent years into a highly celebrated local drinking destination, with many tiny boutique bars next to each other, each with its own peculiar style. From the biker Americana of Hangar 44, to the stylish vibes of Cay Bar, or the post-drink beef noodles and handmade dumplings at Mama Wong's, there's a bit of everything.
