This is one of the best bars you can find in PP, if not the best. Great people, service, music and some of the best cocktails you will ever drink. Space hair has become our first stop whenever we are around. Go check it out, you won’t regret it!

By far the most friendliest bars in Phnom Penh. I wouldn't describe it as a Gay Bar but a Gay Friendly bar. Situated in the Riverside district it is very central. The staff are fantastic and attentive, the atmosphere is amazing and, unlike many other bars, the alcohol is genuine and not 'Knock Off'. For me the best part is been greeted by the three enthusiastic dogs who love a pat. Thoroughly recommend it for a good evening out.

I used to live in Phnom Penh and now visit regularly. I can tell you now that no visit would be complete without coming to see all my fabulous friends at Space Bar! It never fails to provide great entertainment, delicious cocktails and lots of laughs. The owners are good friends of mine and always go out of their way to make everybody welcome whether it be your first visit or a hardcore regular (of which there are many). There is always a great selection of tunes as well as theme costumed waiters to make the service that bit more special. Arrive after 8pm for a fun evening - Go on....you know you want to!

Came by here on two occasions, and enjoyed myself each time. They have a list of about 20 cocktails, with some pretty unique ones, like the earl grey MarTEAni. The main highlight for me was how easy it was for a solo traveller like me to just join in with some of the guys already at the bar, thanks to the efforts of the owner. Really worth checking out, and I'll definitely come back again when I come back to Phnom Penh.

Highly recommend this bar with its very handsome and buff hosts who are usually shirtless - or decked out in some themed costume. But they are also very friendly and welcoming so if you go along solo, you will still feel very at ease and have someone to chat to. They keep things fun and lively with lots of different themed nights.

This surely has to be the most fun gay bar anywhere in the world, and I've been to many in my time! OMG! It's simply awesome. So awesome, in fact, that I now go to Phnom Penh from Australia every couple of months just to spend my evenings in the bar. I was last there at the end of March and spent 10 fun -filled nights there.

So, what's so good about it?

I travel alone but at the Space Bar you are never alone. When you go up the few steps into the bar the staff rush up to greet you with hugs and smiles. They then ensure that you are never just sitting drinking alone ; they come and sit with you and chat. And what beautiful guys they are - outgoing, super friendly and just fun to be with. Being such a small bar you always find yourself sitting in close proximity to other guests and it is easy to strike up a conversation. You meet people from all over the world, not all of them gay, by the way. Even straight guys are made to feel welcome and comfortable. The gay antics of the staff may upset you a little if you are in any way uptight, but it's just their way of having fun with themselves and with the customers.

Last visit I met a couple of the guys during the day and we went out for a late lunch and then I took them shopping. I met up with them later in the evening in the bar and they were wearing the clothes I had bought them.

The Space Bar is one of the few bars where the staff never pester you for drinks or tips. They are just there to have a good time with you. I love it! Such a laid-back relaxed atmosphere with none of the usual hassles.

Oh, and did I mention the drinks? No skimping on alcohol here - the cocktails are full strength. And free shots are given out, too.

What's not to like about the place?

There's nothing horrible about the Space Bar. It's a very small venue that can feel claustrophobic at times. However, the saving grace is the staff. They are very polished and pleasant. It's just so small in there. However, the patrons were laughing and drinking all the same.

Certainly one of the friendliest bar in Phnom Penh. the owners are there, take care and entertain together with their hosts. Offer is good and special cocktail promos are available. Oh, and if you need a haircut, you can do it right there with your Martini in your hand. One point I suggest to look into is to fix the toilets; but that is the only thing ;-) . The smiling and joking staff are the key of this brand to make a night unforgettable! A night to start, or a night to end, its always busy! - Back soon!

Had a wonderful time hanging out at Space Hair at night for a few drinks during my visit to Phnom Penh.

The staff is lovely, friendly, and interested in conversing with patrons - and they are very attractive as well :)

They had a special Gin and Tonic on the menu that was just absolutely amazing - the best I've tasted.

I bought their Men of Cambodia calendar ($20 which includes 2 drinks) and it really is a lovely thing the owner is doing for the gay population in Cambodia.

I spent several evenings in Space Hair Salon and Bar during my stays in Phnom Penh. Loved the atmosphere and staff. The drinks are good, prices fair and you can even get a hair cut!

I was fortunate to be there for the annual Calender Party which was amazing. I haven't seen that many good looking, muscular barely dresses men ever. Unfortunatly for me, most of them "play for the other team". Oh well, just my luck... ;)

Also note that the owner does some fantastic charity work for underprivileged children in Phnom Penh. So having a drink in this bar means you support some really good work too! How often can you say that about having a drink...?
