We stopped at Picasso Bar because it looked funky and had a good vibe (also no loud music pumping so you could have a conversation!!). We just thought we would stop here for a drink before going back to the hotel in the evening but we stayed for a few more hours! The wine was good and the cocktails were... More

We moved here a few months ago, and many people recommended here. The service is always cheery and delightful. I always order the dry martini, which most places destroy because they don't know how to properly prepare. And you get BOGO from 5-9! Great deal. Norman is my favorite bartender (I think manager), so welcoming and cool.

I have stopped by Picasso Bar twice in the last week to enjoy their cocktails. The Espresso Martini & Cosmopolitan were both delicious. The staff are extremely friendly and because I was there early each evening, were not flat out and happy to talk while they went about their work. I often find it uncomfortable being a solo person in... More

If you you had enough of all the backpacker-infested bars around town and prefer some real conversations with actual grown-ups, come here. It's like a vacation within your vacation.

We came here looking for one happy hour cocktail before heading to dinner, and ended up spending ~4 hours enjoying conversation with the bartenders and other travelers, amazing 2 for 1 cocktails (the espresso martini was a personal favorite), and tapas. This is a 'must visit' if you are looking to have drinks while visiting Siem Reap.

Very pleased we found this bar on our second night...wish it had been our first! Norman manages this bar like it is his own place. He has great passion and a terrific knowledge of making cocktails as they should be made. He has done a great job in making this bar the best place to go for a drink.
