AVBar 225

Close to the corner of St.178 on St. 13, House #225.

AV Bar 252 is at the same location as the old 2 Colours bar and it has some of the old staff working here too and ensures a warm welcome. The have shows every night. The new British and Khmer owners, Adrian and Visal, have set the place up nicely with a newly designed bar which looks very stylish and now – the most important news for some of you – the bar has Cambodian draft beer which sells at $1.50 a glass or 75 cents in their happy hour which is from 5 – 9pm daily. See many of the acts here that made 2 Colours so famous.

Arthur Paul’s Hotel Bar Spa

#27 Street 71, Phnom Penh, Cambodia Facebook / Website / +855 (0) 77 892 256 / +855 (0) 23 212 814

Arthur Paul’s is a male-only gay hotel, bar and spa with an edge: it’s art-deco with a modern twist – sumptuous decor – simply gorgeous! I love this place because I love wearing my most beautiful gowns here and always pack my latest somewhat revealing “agent provocateur” cutaway swim suit. Oh, I love dressing up, and you can do that at A&p, if you like, and really impress a date. You can also come on your own and feel comfortable chatting to the bar-staff in their sexy uniforms, swimming in a simply paradisaical pool, sweating in the steam room or lazing in a very big (and super clean) Jacuzzi. The food is great, cocktails big and strong and all in all a A&P is a place not to be missed.

Blue Chilli Bar

#36EO Street 178, Phnom Penh Facebook / +855 (0) 12 566 353

Blue Chilli is the oldest bar for gay Phnom Penh, but you wouldn’t know it. With a recent refurbishment, this bar is up-beat, up-to-date, stylish and popular. They have a fabulous drag show featuring one of my famous celebrity friends, the delightful and adorable Lady Gaga (Cambodia). Their cocktails are strong. I had three of these and was tripping over my heals into the tuk-tuk. Oh, and the ever-so hot and charming Sokha tells me that the draft beer is cold and comes in nicely chilled glasses, and that’s a triumph, because my men love their beer! For more information videos and pics click here.

Generations Bar

174 Street, Phnom Penh, close to the junction of Street 51 and Heart of Darkness Facebook / 090 30 33 36 / 076 888 64 69

Generations is the newest gay bar to open in Phnom Penh – they have spent a lot of money on this ‘disco’ bar, where you’ll see lazer shows as well as drag and boy shows that lean towards the burlesque. The bar is still finding its feet and is still in its soft opening stage but you can expect great things from this bar in the future. The investors have told us that this will be the first of a series of gay bars that will be opened on this street with a state-of-the-art gay club to be opened opposite Generations in December. We’ll keep you posted here!

Pride of Phnom Penh bar

#Street 15 near Street 144, Phnom Penh Facebook / +855 (0) 10 535 745

Now lovies, here’s a recent addition for you. On the 18th September 2015 I presented my VIP invitation to this saucy club lookey-likey bar which dazzled me with delicious food and sumptuous men on the stage.

The bar holds frequent glamorous parties and has drag shows on Friday and Saturday.

 

Space Hair Bar

#66 Street 136, Phnom Penh Facebook / +855 (0) 89 963 066

The Space Hair Bar is an ingenious space for a bar, innovated and created out of a hair salon which still does trade in the daytime when you can get your hairdo styled by experts while enjoying a beer/cocktail/juice or a simple cup of tea. In the evening this venue transforms into a very popular bar where you can enjoy their famous muscle-boy waiters and an excellent selection of music. They have many themed nights and are especially popular with the fashionable gay crowd of both Khmer and Expats.

Strange Fruit Bar

Street 19Z, Phnom Penh FaceBook / 095 287 807

Strange Fruit is mixed, gay owned and managed, extremely gay friendly and is the newest alternative bar in Phnom Penh. The space is situated above a ground level store. The gay owner is a famous interior designer and this intimate place reflects that with a great ambiance created out of a professional eye for style and design. Popular with young professionals and anyone interested in making good friends and networking.

Vapor Bar

#45, Street 240, Phnom Penh FaceBook

Vapor Bar opened during Gay Pride 2016 and has become a lovely bar to hang out in with great service, cute staff and an atmosphere where the background music actually allows you to talk to each other. The bar is nicely spaced and comfortable and we have always received a great welcome here and had a good time. This is definitely a bar which you should put on your list to visit in Phnom Penh

GL lounge (Club)

#176, Corner of St 63 and 288, Phnom Penh / 095 287 807 Video & Post Page

GL Lounge (formally The Classic Night Club) delivers the most sophisticated night of drag and comedy performance to be found anywhere in Cambodia. It is aimed mainly at the local gay middle-classed Khmer who adorn the front tables to savor the experience. Recently refurbished, GL Lounge has widened its appeal and now more and more expats and tourists are coming along to enjoy the experience.

Heart of Darkness (Club)

#38, Pasteur Street 51, Phnom Penh, Cambodia

The Heart of Darkness club is a fabulous night out. It’s on two floors with a large dance floor below with stage in front of a large DJ box. This club is open every night and it very popular (Beware – Thursdays are St8 and promoted as ladies nights on their Facebook!) The busiest nights are Friday and Saturdays between 12 and 2am. The music is pot luck depending on who is playing and has a mixed appeal to cater for both the Khmer and western. It’s a laid-back and great night out! PS. If you want a break from dancing, you can also chill out and/or have great fun on the pool table upstairs. Heart is also the venue for Impulse – see advert on the right (pc and tablet) or scroll down on your mobile to see this.

Shameless (Club – Wednesdays only)

Pontoon Club #80, Street 172, Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Shameless!!! Only on Wednesday nights at the Pontoon Club features a cabaret and dance show which starts quite late at 1am but is a must see. It is marvelously energetic and performed by the famous gay dance troupe Firefox. Shameless is a mixed club but all promoters and acts are gay or transgender and the gay entourage to these groups generally stand and sit over to the left of the DJ box and stage (as you look at it) to create their own gay area in a club which, if you stand in the wrong place, can seem very straight. You’ll love the performance and the club is ultra-modern and sophisticated.

Arthur Paul’s Hotel Bar and Spa

#27 Street 71, Phnom Penh, Cambodia Facebook / Website / +855 (0) 77 892 256 / +855 (0) 23 212 814

Arthur Paul’s is a male-only gay hotel, bar and spa with an edge: it’s art-deco with a modern twist – sumptuous decor – simply gorgeous! I love this place because, and I know it is not absolutely necessary, I love wearing my most beautiful gowns here and always pack my latest swimming costume. Oh, this is the place if you want to impress a date. You can also come on your own and feel comfortable chatting to the bar-staff in their sexy uniforms, swimming in a simply paradisaical pool, sweating in the steam room or lazing in a very big (and super clean) Jacuzzi. The food is great, cocktails big and strong and all in all a A&P is a place not to be missed.

East West Healing Massage

Street 278, Phnom Penh – 012 313 500

East West Healing Massage offers fantastic healing massage. The massage business is owned and operated by Mana Somsri from Thailand. The massage rooms are down a side corridor next to a hair salon which is run by a gay western hairstylist (should you need your hair done!). The place is stylish and professional looking and I had an excellent massage here. Mana has trained and certified in both Thailand and the U.S.A and offers Swedish, Thai, Khmer and foot massage. Mana works extensively with his staff to ensure they all give a quality massage.

Ganesh House Massage

#22z, Street 420, Phnom Penh Facebook / 015 327 201 / 017 738 101

Ganesh House Massage is the newest massage parlor in Phnom Penh and it looks it, blending the modern with the traditional, this place makes you feel that you have arrived in somewhere special before you even reach the reception desk. They have a mixture of masseurs, from muscle boys to twinks and all, I am assured by the owner, are trained to the highest degree in any area of massage that you could wish for. These masseurs are cute! The owner is a former masseur from Thailand and has years of experience. I didn’t stay for a massage as I had to go to work, but I intend to return soon and post a full review. I did see a few of the rooms though, and they are as elegantly equipped as this lush villa which houses them would suggest: all with en-suite facilities, excellent beds and decor. I can’t wait to return – purely for business, of course 😉

Hatha Khmer Massage

#32B, Street 368, Phnom Penh Website / 087 585 756 / 077 643 232

The Hatha Khmer (massage) is owned by the same people as the Hatha Khmer Spa. This massage parlor has a lot of boys, from muscle to twinky boys to give you the ultimate massage experience. You will find most of the masseurs available after 5pm because they have other jobs or are at university first and using this as a second income. You can go straight into the reception to view the boys through a window where they are paraded, or you can have a drink and talk to them first in a more social environment at the bar in the garden. The venue is open until 12 midnight.

Hatha Khmer Spa, Suana and Gym

#59, Street 350, Phnom Penh 087 585 756 / 077 643 232

The Hatha Khmer Spa used to be known as the Romantic sauna, which some may think as an oxymoron, and has changed owners. It is now extremely popular. Entrance $4. Open 12 – 10pm. Recently refurbished, with a maze for a great cruising experience. There is a gym on the first floor if you want to pump up before putting yourself on show, a bar and a video room and relaxation rooms where you can of course ‘relax’ with someone you meet. We found this to be the most popular sauna and the Khmer here are very western friendly with most people having a positive and enjoyable experience.

Hero Spa (massage only)

#111, Street 470, Phnom Penh – 069 222 585

Hero Spa is open from 12 til 12 every day. Gay owned and managed, it has only gay masseurs. $10 massage and the usual $20 tip for special services, however, this should be negotiated, especially if you are western because they will believe you are super rich, as some of the ‘models’ have been reported as asking for $50 tips and more for specials, so to make sure you both have a truly happy ending, make sure you negotiate before the massage. The place itself looks a little rundown but it is clean, and the rooms are big and private with en-suite. There is a good variety of boys and muscle boys numbering around 20 when we visited and they are very experienced and professional.

Khmer Hand (massage)

#26A, Street 302, Phnom Penh – 017 559 978

The Khmer Hand is open 11 til 11 every day and is gay owned and managed and has mostly gay masseurs. Call first or arrive and ask for the manager, Sasa, for a gay masseur. Compared to the other gay massage houses, this is very well kitted out and looks professional with nice reclining chairs downstairs to get your manicure and etc, and upstairs are the nicely decorated rooms. You can expect a good massage here and if you give the right signals then special services are accommodated. Here, the expected tip is between 10 and 20 dollars.

 

Love Spa for Men

#103, Corner of Streets 105/350, Phnom Penh 015 799 996

Love Spa for Men is adjacent to the canal on 105 street not far after the junction with Mau Tse Toung Blvd heading towards the centre of town. $4 entrance. It is easy to spot as there is a large advertising banner on its outside wall with a larger than life-sized picture of a half-naked gorgeous looking Asian guy on it. The sauna is on two floors and is quite small. The Khmer here are generally into each other and while westerners won’t feel alienated, it is unlikely that even if a Khmer is interested that they will go to a room with you. To do that seems to be embarrassing for them here. This maybe because the place is not just a sauna but also a place where the Khmer hang out and chat. There is also a nice gym here where you can meet nice people and have a chat.

M Health Spa

#175, Street 254, Phnom Penh – 011 337 327

M Health Spa is nearer the riverside than the other spas, near to Independence Monument and in the street above and running parallel to that of Manor House hotel.

It is a nice sauna with two levels, a small but well equipped gym and all the facilities you would expect, including a steam room, sauna, and relaxation rooms.

Staff are friendly and so are the customers.
