Valentino’s Club

Sabay Sabay Street – St.174, Facebook / 0855 (0) 976 409 097

Valentinto’s Club has made a huge impact on Phnom Penh since they opened on NYE last year. The club features Western and Khmer DJ’s in an amazing setting that includes a neo-classical style with pillars reach to the ceiling abov, a stunningly glass rising glass dance floor and a state of the art sound system and lights. The club presently has a running promotion of 2 for 1 drinks every night – and exclusive to this club is a show every night at 12pm prompt that features boy dancers as well as some gorgeous drag queens to entertain you. We here at GCN have seen this show and it’s awesome, making this a club with great music and entertainment that is truly not to be missed!

Valentino’s Terrace Bistro

Sabay Sabay Street – St.174, Facebook / 0855 (0) 966 788 209

Valentino’s Bistro has got itself a reputation for great food and boasts the cuisine of Australian and Khmer chefs who are expert in creating sumptuously tasty dishes. The Bistro doesn’t only provide food to tantalize the senses, they also host live music every night that is set in a garden terrace of beautiful exotic flowers and plants that complement the wall fountain to create a relaxing background that adds to the most inspired culinary experience in Phnom Penh.

Valentino’s Suites Hotel

Sabay Sabay Street – St.174, Facebook / 0855 (0) 966 788 209

This hotel is not your usual hotel. It boasts fully functional apartments with great views of the city if you are lucky enough to get an upper floor reservation. These apartments are already very popular as when tucked up in your suite you can relax in peace even though you are centrally located in the clubbing district and situated within Sabay Sabay Street – the only LGBTI Street in Cambodia! Close are also all the main tourist attractions which include the national museum, riverside and Wat Phnum temple.

Generations Bar

Sabay Sabay Street (St. 174), Phnom Penh, close to the junction of Street 51 and Heart of Darkness Facebook / 017 365 203

Generations is now under new management and is really starting to pick up the crowds. Moving away from the drag act scene, it is now fast becoming a place where people can meet and chat in a relaxed atmosphere both inside and out. New staff, great service with a smile – we had a great evening there and while we left at around 2am, the bar stayed open as they seem to be generating a great place to be for an after-club get together! Coming soon: the manager tells me that he intends to open the bar from 10am until 4am and sees a 24hr bar as a real future possibility – things are really on the up here! Happy hour is not set in stone and seems to last the whole night! Open from 5pm until 2am+ (Check back for future extended hours)

 

 

q bar

Q Bar

Sabay Sabay Street – St.174, Facebook / 0855 (0)17 365 203

Q Bar is the latest LGBTQ bar to arrive in Sabay Sabay Street. Keeping with the streets diverse nature, Q Bar is different from any other bar in Phnom Penh. Q Bar is designed to mimic the style of the 70s and early 80s Drag-Show bars of London, with picture framed walls, velvet curtains and mauve and gold walls creating the perfect setting for the burlesque or ‘boy-lesque’ shows that feature there every Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights from 10.30pm. Outside the bar there is ample seating on comfy sofas where you can chat away in a well-ventilated space or simply take in the hustle and bustle of the street. The staff are extremely friendly and you can experience some of the best drinks and service in town. Food is also available which can be brought in from the many eateries that pervade the area.

Toolbox

#46E, Sabay Sabay Street (St. 174) Phnom Penh Facebook / 077211537

It’s unusual for a bar to become an instant success, but this is one of them. The owner has created a clean-cut and industrial-styled bar, framed by a huge mirror behind the bar that reflects the giant photos of the boys that work in the bar opposite – it’s an industrial theme so you can imagine the boys posing in their vests (models indeed!). The boys say that had a lot of fun doing that. There is also a tape measure in the toilet that often prompts a giggle at the bar from a variety of boasts from customers and staff alike. This bar also stands out from the others as it sports a mezzanine balcony which over looks the bar and provides a stage for the boy show where the boys from the bar team up with professional performers to give a boy only show. A bar not to be missed – we’ll be back! Open from 5pm until 2am+ Happy hour here from 5 until 9pm. Boy show from 9pm.

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.

 

 

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.

Vapor Bar

#21, Street 262, Daun Penh, Phnom Penh, Cambodia website / 0855 (0) 23 992 566 / info@manorhousecambodia.com

Vapor Bar has moved to Manor House hotel – This has been a great success, especially because now you can sip your drinks beside or even in the pool. A literally cool place to be in a sometimes very hot city.

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.

#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

#18 St 330, 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.
