Whilst wondrous whims and one-off occasions transform the offerings of Phnom Penh – some things stay stable and consistent. Want some tips on what to do with your Wednesday? Look no further.
Note: This article will be revisited and updated as we experience and discover other slices of midweek greatness.
Last update: 1st September 2017
Il Forno thrives each Wednesday, enjoy their ‘Italian Afterwork’ from 6pm with unlimited good vibes, awesome cocktails and FREE tapas & pizza for everyone!
Yeah, free pizza. We know. Awesome.
St 302, BKK1, Near Independence monument
Che culo! celebrates Wing Wednesdays with an offer of $3 chicken wings every week – and it’s on the same street as Il Forno, so foodies have more reason to flock to this area for mid-week munchies.

Showbox is a regular ex-pat haunt, as their open-mic night kicks off every week from 8pm. Top tip – they also give out free beer from 6.30 – 7pm, worth arriving early for! The drink offerings continue with $2 wine all night.
11 St 330, Phnom Penh
Zear, round the corner from Showbox, is a local Khmer favourite. With live music in the evening followed by a DJ set. This slick venue is fairly upmarket, when we last popped in they tried to upsell our order for a beer and a cocktail to the $45 steak and wine package! Perhaps a place to impress! We were offered a 10% for making an effort to speak Khmer, which was humbling.

Club love celebrates ‘ladies night’ every Wednesday, advertising 2 for 1 promotions on drinks for females. Usually the dancefloor fills up around midnight as the crowd from Madmonkey arrive on mass with the hostel staff walking them their from 11:45pm.

Duplex, also wants to get you dancing. ‘Salsa Phnom Penh’ host Salsa lessons every Wednesday at 7-8pm (intermediate), 8-9pm (beginner) and from 9pm onwards it’s advertised as a party!

Sporty Sporting Sport
Score bar, in BKK1 is known as a hotspot for all things sport. As long as the time-zone differences aren’t too craaaaaazy, you’ll be able to find coverage of all your favourite teams and sporting personalities. With a vast array of screens using various feeds, your best chance to tune in is here. It’s often worth messaging them ahead of time to confirm that they’ll show whatever you’re interested in, whilst the bigger events always pack out and create a great atmosphere.
