Once again, this weekend you have plenty to choose from. There’s wine tastings, jazz nights, live music of every kind, guest bartenders and mixologists, lingerie parties (yes, really) and the return of the goddamn excellent Kampot Playboys.

This will be the big one tonight. Absolute legends the Kampot Playboys will bring a smile to any live music fan this weekend. Expect a raucous singalong from die hard fans. By which we mean the What’s On Phnom Penh team.


What Else

Food and cocktail pairing with Mr. Ohba, 6-8pm, MAWSIM, St. 108

MAWSIM welcomes the award-winning mixologist, Mr. Ohba, all the way from Japan to usher in a night of hedonistic tasting. For $60 you get 8 courses of food paired with 5 cocktails by the visiting mixologist. You don’t even need to book with a ‘walk-ins welcome’ policy – and it’s on both Friday and Saturday, so you have two chances to indulge.


Phnom Penh Oktoberfest, 4pm-2am, The Factory, National Road 2

It’s okay, you aren’t the only one who just looked down at your calendar. It is indeed November and as some of you celebrate Thanksgiving this weekend and others (me) are counting the days until Santa comes, others will choose to celebrate… Oktoberfest. Perhaps it’s a copyright thing? Well, anyway it looks great. The festival runs until Dec 4th and tonight will have the Oompapazz Band and the legend that is DJ Shagzy. Tickets are $7 including a Hanuman beer and you can either get them on the door or book here


Asia Wine Fair, 2-5pm, Rosewood Hotel, Monivong

Why not take the day off work and treat yourself to an afternoon of over-indulgence? Well, there are probably many reasons. But, if you do, then $65 per person get you a lovely day of canapés and the chance to sample these fine and fantastic wines: 

  • Château Les Carmes Haut-Brion
  • Château Beau-Séjour Bécot
  • Château Gruaud Larose
  • Château Ferrière
  • Château Haut-Bages Libéral
  • Château Durfort-Vivens
  • Château Montrose
  • Château Duhart-Milon

Havana Nice, 9pm, Backstreet Bar, St. 308

Get feisty down at Backstreet with some hot and steamy Cuban fever, followed by the one and only DJ Moto bringing the most loved hip hop and RnB direct to the dance floor until the wee hours. 

Kampot Playboys, 10pm, Sam’s Bar, St. 460

Yaaas, encore! The boys return to play another night – but this time it’s at Sam’s Bar in TTP.


What’s On Late 


Lingerie Night and DJ LILO:P, 9pm, Redroom, St. 214

It’s getting hot out there, so why not take off all most of your clothes? Get down to Redroom for what will almost certainly be the sexiest night this weekend. Great music, drinks and an open invitation for anyone (yes, anyone) feeling frisky to dressed up (down?) in their finest lingerie. Reserve a table spot now by messaging them directly through Facebook or calling 096 533 3334.


What Else


Phnom Penh Gin and Tonic Festival, 11am-10pm, Odom, Norodom

Ooh, lovely! There’s a gin and tonic festival this weekend. Fever Tree always put on a great event and will showcase over 160 local and international brands at their bar with some great food options all day long in the closest venue Phnom Penh has to a garden party: the rare green space of Odom Park. 


Phnom Penh Oktoberfest, 4pm-2am, The Factory, National Road 2

In today’s Oktoberfest festivities there is a great range of live music from the beer-loving Germans. A concert performance kicks the night of steins off with Vin Vitou and Ruthko, then a house DJ, one Miserable Man, Blind Khmer Band and then La Union. You can also expect late night some tunes to dance off the impending beer belly.


Meraki’s Final Party, 2pm, Meraki, Kampot

DISCLAIMER: Okay, it’s not actually in Phnom Penh, but Meraki has been so loved by so many Penh heads that is worth a mention. If you happen to be heading down Kampot way, and you love dogs, kayaks, beautiful nature, a broad variety of substances and a very good time, get yourself down to say goodbye before it’s gone for good. 


World’s Best Bar at Sora, 8pm, Sora Skybar, Rosewood, Monviong

Every month Sora partners with the World’s 50 Best Bars to host a leading mixologist to serve up creative drinks for the evening. Giacomo from Paradiso, a Barcelona bar named world’s best in 2022, will be here on Friday and Saturday, blending up something special.
