A theme bar with a tongue in cheek twist, Miss Wong's is among the most stylish venues one can spend the evening in in Siem Reap. Featuring a Shanghai 1930s theme, the bar's livid red interior (and if one stares high enough, a pearl white ceiling with crown molding) is punctuated with chinioserie from different times. You may find yourself reclining on a carved wooden couch, leaning on silk pillows, while your drink is served on a table bearing miniature plastic gold chrome deities, the kind one would find in night markets. It all works however, and even the cocktails, although mostly derived from standard recipes, bear an oriental twist. My vodka was served with a swizzle stick cut out of...what else...a lemon grass stalk, of course.
Above the bar that bears a painting of the presumably mythical patroness, is a tiny balcony, and after a few drinks it's quite reasonable to start expecting the lighting to be further dimmed, a spotlight fired up, and a sensuous torch singer emerge. It didn't happen, but maybe in the future it just might. If I'm in Seim Reap again, I'll make sure to check again.
I personally found the prices reasonable, however for the extremely budget conscious there are certainly many places that offer cheaper libations. Then again, if a visit to Siem Reap is a once-in-a-lifetime thing, you certainly can't go wrong at Miss Wong. You may have to dig a wee bit deeper, but it's quite worth it.
