I went there on a Saturday night and they had a live band playing rock and roll covers. It's a big place with a couple of pool tables, reasonably priced drinks and a chill place to spend a couple hours

Sharky bar and restaurant has been operating in Phnom Penh for many many years. It is a great place to hang out, play some pools and making new friends. It is also a so-called pick up joint for those lonely travellers. This restaurant serves great...More
