Angkor What?, Siem Reap

Pub Street
Siem Reap
Tel: 855 12 490 755's insider take:

The wellspring of Siem Reap saloons, Angkor What? has been "promoting irresponsible drinking since 1998." Enabling prices ($1 for a Beer Lao and $4 for a "whisky bucket," a half-bottle of Mekong, a local swill, mixed with Coke and Red Bull) attract backpackers and budget travelers, who have covered the walls with graffiti—most of it scrawled after a few whisky buckets. It's a lively, albeit loud, place to watch the evening pageantry along pedestrian-only Pub Street. Across the street at Temple Bar, the Beer Lao is pricier ($1.25 a can), the music's even louder and more '80s, and there's a small dance floor, three pool tables, and an imitation bas-relief of Angkor Wat's Churning of the Sea of Milk (855-15-999-909).
