“great decor disapointing drinks and no food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

this place was tugged away, off Street 240. Finding this place, newcomers could easily walked passed in the alley. The door was so cleverly hidden that it blended so well with its surrounding.

Come to our surprise, the inside had one of the best designs for a bar in Phnom Penh. The lightly dimmed room reminded us of the underground bars in Moscow. The drinks however were a bit of a disappointment and there is no food available although the owner did say we could order delivery from nearby restaurants. very smoky atmosphere, if you can find it, worth a visit for the decoration but nothing more.

“Expats bar in the "hip" area of Phnom Pehn”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

As others mentioned already, the bar is not easy to find since there is no sign and it's not on the street. I had to ask a security guy.. The place is nice, small and the most stylish probably in Phnom Pehn. The thing is that most likely you didn't travel thousands of miles to come to this corner of the planet to go and hang out at a stylish little bar similar to many back home.. That's why Sito bar is a meeting point for some expats who appreciate it's difference and barely any tourists. Actually this (quiet) area is supposed to be the "hip" area of the city as I found out, few restaurats-bars for the expat community. It could be nice to visit if you're staying for a long time but for a few days visit don't bother to...

“Not worth the time to find it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

It took me a long time to find this place. Really nothing special. Decent drinks. Slow service (it was busy the night I went). As a non-smoker i had to go outside to get some fresh air. Pass.

“For locals, not really for tourists”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

I had a decent time once I found the place, but finding it is no simple task. (No signs on the main street.) Drinks were fine, service was ok (though not as attentive as I would expect.) Definitely a smokers bar, my clothes really smelled of smoke the next day. I'd say "pass" for any tourists, it's more for the social crowd of PP.

“a smoker's paradise”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

If you love smokey bars, this will be your heaven. Service is hard to get as it's quite busy. On the plus side a lot of "in crowd" people. Really not for travellers but more for local expats. Impossible to find without a guide (no signs).
