Cambodia: Best Rooftop Bars in Phnom Penh

Rooftop cocktail is great! Plus we love good vantage points, somewhere high up with great commanding views, where we can get a visual grip on the place and celebrate. Also enjoy the open-air rooftop breeze as it adds to the wonderful feeling of the place.

great place. great view. great breeze.

Whenever, we wish to spend a relaxing and lazy late afternoon or evening, we head off to one of these rooftop bars to savor tasty drinks while enjoying the view and the breeze. I would say that relaxing in a rooftop bar is certainly a great place to unwind, relax and meet people.

Here’s my Top 3 Rooftop Cocktail Bars in Phnom Penh:

1.Tonle Sap Bar in Sokha Phnom Penh Hotel and Residence

For me, it is the best rooftop bar in Phnom Penh. It offers a breathtaking view of Tonle Sap River, 360° panoramic views of the city, tranquil greenery and spectacular sunset. Also, it is very breezy.

The bar is huge. The place is nice with lots of green potted plants that create a tropical atmosphere. The staff is friendly. The service is good. There are many choices of drinks. And, the seating area is very comfortable and is available both outside and inside.

2.Sky Bar in Le Moon

It is a modern and comfortable bar at the top of K-West Restaurant overlooking the riverfront, at the corner of streets 154 and Sisowath Quay, Riverside.

Overlooking Tonle Sap River and the riverside.

Personally, it is by far the best rooftop bar on the riverside area as it has class and amazing view. To the east, it offers a lovely view of the long Tonle Sap River. If you look down, you can see the riverside that looks orderly and neat while at street level it is chaotic and polluted. To the south, it offers lovely and colorful view of Wat Ounalom.

The building behind me is Wat Ounalom.

I love the mood and the seating there. There are many natural plants around the place. I also like their soft music. The staff is friendly. It is very airy. There are many cozy chairs and sofas scattered over the roof where you can enjoy a drink. Free wifi. It is open from 5pm till 1am. No happy hours.

3.Eclipse Sky Bar

Eclipse Sky Bar is my favorite rooftop in the center of the city. It is the tallest rooftop bar in Phnom Penh. It’s a great place to get a different view of the skyline of Phnom Penh. We were there for a cocktail at sunset. The drink, the view, the atmosphere and the sunset were all fabulous! Within an hour or so, you’ll have a time to experience and admire the sunlit city, sunset and the city at night. In the evening, it also offers a nice escape from the heat and noise. A nice place for friends to relax at the end of a hot day and enjoy a view of the city. I love the ambiance there.

best for a sunset drink

it deserves a visit here again 🙂

It’s open-air and located on top of Phnom Penh Tower on Monivong Boulevard. It’s open from 5 PM until 2 AM. The price is in the high average. We had a great time there. If you wish to see a city view in one swoop, this restaurant bar is worth a visit.

love this beautiful sunset
