Absolutely love gay Sihanoukville. The only thing missing was a gay bar, but now there is not just one, there are two. The Oga bar is the first of the two and we received a fabulous welcome there as they opened a week of parties on the 20th December (2015). The owner, Olivier, has created a very stylish bar with a Greek theme to woo the gay customers in. And he has definitely done that. We went on a Saturday night and it was packed, so if you want to have a seat, make sure you get there early. Read more on our post.

The second of these bars is the After Work bar. This bar seems is very bright with bubble gum colors and the atmosphere is definitely bubbly. They have a pool table in the main bar area with many small sofas to sit and relax. The cocktails are great and the bar staff keep you entertained while you are watching them being made.
The bar is up a flight of stairs meaning that there is a balcony area to sit in too. It is easy to miss when looked for because the downstairs is parking and you may think it is just another house, but it is literally in the street behind the Total garage as you can see from the map below, so persevere, you will find it and it is worth looking for.

The LV Club is NOT a gay club. However, we list it here on gay bars clubs Cambodia because while there are two new bars in Sihanoukville, there are no dedicated gay clubs. So, here is a mixed club where lady and gay boys alike go to let their hair down. It is the cheapest of the clubs and so attracts the more financially challenged Khmer as well as the traveling backpackers, and etc. This can give it quite an edgy feel.
LV is gay friendly and the first club people mention when you ask where the party is for gay people in Sihanoukville. It is very popular.
Eolia Beach Resort
The Eolia Beach resort is a mixed and gay-friendly hotel which is gay owned. The owner, Abel, is such a charming host and will go out of his way to make you feel at home at this hotel. The hotel has beautifully compact en-suite and air conditioned bungalows and a clean swimming pool where there are shaded areas to sit in if it gets too hot on the beach. Eolia has recently opened its own private beach cafe and bar in which they have parties in the evening and, of course, this is very gay friendly. The Otres beach is generally accepted as the best in Sihanoukville and is literally across the street, as is his new bar/cafe. See this hotel and read our review here.

The Secret Garden is a gay owned and friendly hotel and bar – the bar being right on the beach with beautiful sands in the bay and a great view of the islands. While gay customers are welcome, this hotel is very popular with families and was always busy when we popped in. We will update our information on this hotel shortly.
Many Thanks to Nicky’s Gay Asia for the initial information on this hotel.

The Oga Bar also serves food!
The have a menu that covers French and Western Cuisine, as well as local Khmer favourites and all cooked and served to a high standard.
This is because the owner is a fully qualified chef who used to run an extremely successful and popular restaurant in Paris. Expect to be dazzled by the food here – we loved it!
