Owner description: Situated in leafy Tonle Bassac, the once sleepy residential lane has been developed into a wonderfully exciting drinking, dining and retail phenomenon attracting expats, local Khmer and tourists alike every day of the week. No trip to Phnom Penh is complete without at least one visit to the boutiques and one night enjoying the bars and restaurants of Bassac Lane. Seibur - aperitif room Cicada - classic cocktail bar The Library - daiquiri bar Meat & Drink - bar • grill • conservatory Trove - gifts & homewares Harry's - antique shop & martini bar Hangar 44 - custom motorbike showroom & bar Paperdoll - clothing & accessories Dollshouse - hair salon Masamune - eatery D.Wilkins - leather goods maker Enter Bassac Lane from street 308 which comes off Norodom Boulevard (Malis restaurant is on the corner). There is a paid parking site opposite Seibur where you can park your car, bicycle or motorbike, remember to get a ticket.

As the name suggests, the restaurants and bars are in the lane which is frequented by most after work. It has great places to eat, drink and meet up colleagues and others for a nice time. Weekends most often have music shows too, which is an added advantage!! Library bar and Mama Wong restaurant highly recommended!!

I love the ambiance! Such a cute street with lots of cool bars! I really enjoyed taking a drink there before heading to dinner. They have really interesting price for happy hours and it is really cheap and good quality!

Most charming area for bars and growing list of quality restaurants in the city. Le Boutier and Subway are my favorite bars in this area. Lively mostly on the weekends and Thursday. Also growing list of restaurants with a variety of cuisines to choose from. Can have the food delivered to any of the bars. Good mix of expats, locals and tourists. In a city that is mostly void of charm, this area stands out as both convenient and charming for its collection of bars/restaurants.

Bassac Lane is an alley off the main street that has a bunch of cliche micro bars. They are nice, new, and clean, and a little more expensive they you would pay elsewhere. I imagine it could be cool when crowded, but it felt like each little plot was equally interchangeable while empty.

Almost like a night market of bars, each selling the same thing just packaged slightly differently.

Most visitors will probably not find this place on their own but I was with a tour that took us here. We entered some kind of alleyway to get a one of the bar and have a drink after a long night out touring. The bars are modern and decorated to attract the young and almost every visitor. Great place to hang out with friends when traveling to Phnom Penh.
