Miss Wong Cocktail Bar is a classy Siem Reap nightlife venue that’s famed for its extensive range of cocktails with an Asian twist, infused gins and imported beers. Tucked away from the bustling Pub Street, this 1920s Shanghainese-style bar features colourful paper lanterns, black lacquer screens, tasteful antiques, and cosy leather booths with instrumental music playing unobtrusively in the background. On Saturdays, resident DJ Sakura Boom plays a good mix of lounge and chill-out tunes from 9pm onwards.

Complementing the unique cocktails at Miss Wong are authentic Asian snacks such as barbecued duck pancakes (US$4) and pork sliders (US$4.50), as well as a selection of dim sum such as steamed shrimp har gow (dumplings), fried chicken wonton, and fried vegetarian spring rolls.
