Does Phnom Penh have enough of cool places to hang out at, or is it just a messy and crowded city with nothing else to offer than girly bars and Angkor beer? Luckily it seems like the city nowadays has plenty of things to offer. From craft beer bars, microbreweries, art galleries, and even great place for live music. We took a look at the best live music venues in Phnom Penh.

One of the really well thought out places in Phnom Penh. The Alchemy GastroPub is a place that wouldn’t feel out of place in any of the major cities of the world. Offering a large variety of Cambodian Craft Beers, live music night from any genre, and supposedly really good food. They’re located next to the Russian Market, so the location is very good indeed.
