Opened in 1993 and originally a watering hole for journalists, diplomats, and aid workers during Cambodia's uneasy reconstruction, the Foreign Correspondents Club may be the city's most venerated and vibrant spot for dinner and a drink—or an expat party (Democrats Abroad celebrated Barack Obama's election on the third-floor terrace). There's a lot to like about the "F": It's housed in a French colonial building cooled by ceiling fans; geckos skitter along the walls of the open-air second floor; the unbeatable location overlooks the confluence of the Mekong and Tonle Sap rivers; and the menu is an upscale mix of Mediterranean (spinach-and-feta risotto), Asian (Chinese pork dumplings), and Khmer (lotus root salad with caramelized pork and smoked shrimp in a hot-and-sour dressing). Cocktails, such as the Angkor Sunset (vodka, rum, coconut rum, and pineapple juice), are half price and draft beers are $1 during the daily happy hour, 5 to 7 pm; teetotalers can face nightfall with passion fruit–honey smoothies. Outside awaits the city's largest, most persistent gaggle of tuk-tuk drivers, touts, and beggars.—Christopher Cox

Open daily 7 am to midnight.
