Best bar in Siem reap
Nov 2020 • Friends
Visited during water festival with my friends and loved it! Entertaining show, great ambience, friendly staff, had a great evening. To be honest, of all bars we visited this was the best. After a really nice chat with owner, he offered us shots too!

High energy shows, great drinks, fantastic staff.
Jan 2020
I've been to Siem Reap a few times in the past so this was not my first visit to Barcode. Since my last visit, in early 2019, it seems there have been major investments in costumes, headdresses, wigs etc for the showgirls... as well as a couple of new cast members. WOW what a high energy show with a little bit for everyone. The numbers ranged from tried and true drag favorites to leading edge rap and high energy dance. I have really enjoyed the shows in the past but they've really kicked up to the next level.

One thing I can always count on at Barcode is a perfect drink. Every bartender follows the same exact recipes, down to a few drops of this, and a spoon full of that. I really like the consistency. The bowl of popcorn placed in front of me partway into the evening was very tasty and much appreciated.

The staff have always been very pleasant and engaging. I am traveling alone and usually sit at the bar, but I've noticed the staff greeting people as they enter and quickly showing them to a table, usually with bar menu in hand. The bar staff who remember me from previous visits stop by from time to time to chat for a moment when they can.

The decor is very cozy and the seating area has expanded since my last visit with a row of barstools against the back wall. I also notice the addition of several new high-tech lights and lasers for the show and dance floor. There is a garden area out back with a few tables and chairs which serves as a smoking area. The gravel road in front of the bar has been changed to nice paver stones with ample lighting.

I'll look forward to my next visit when I'm in Cambodia again.

Our Best Night Out in Cambodia!
Jan 2020
I am a tour leader who often visits Siem Reap and often take my groups to see the show at Barcode. The show and the friendly staff always make for a special night out. My groups are made up mostly by straight people and they feel comfortable in this welcoming safe space. Often my group talk of this night as their favorite in the whole tour through Indochina!
They also make a delicious espresso martini and it's such a sophisticated contrast to the crowded and brash pub street.

Well worth your visit…
Jan 2020 • Couples
One of two really good gay bars in Siem Reap. One thing we really appreciated about this town is how friendly and welcoming everybody was but especially the two gay bars that we patronized. Waitstaff always smiling always chatting up the guests great shows and plenty of fellow travelers and locals to chitchat with. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at barcode!
We wish all gay bars were like this one! Thank you barcode!

Barcode is a great place to have a really fun night out, it has all the ingredients needed, reasonably priced great cocktails and regular drinks, excellent staff, a great show, and a DJ to get your feet tapping, add to this a very attentive and friendly owner and it's all there.

I have been many times to the Barcode and it is really the best place to spend the evening .
The show is great and the performance is amazing with very professional showmen.
The staff is very friendly and the manager makes you feel like a VIP.
Such a cosy place with a large choice of beverage with good music .
The place to be and not only once !!!!

Buyer beware
Dec 2019 • Solo
I really was excited to come here given the reviews but the shows were just so-so and the staff had a lot of attitude. There was also a cockroach issues on the bar. Try Miss Wong's for a friendly atmosphere; they also give you safe drinking water when you but a drink (like every other bar in Siem Reap) but Barcode wants you to buy bottled water. Don't waste your time here.

Dear Mr Mark M . Thank you very much for taking the time to review Barcode . We are very much concerned of the well being of our customers . Regarding the show I am sorry that it didn't match your expectations . We have a very good reputation regarding our staff for being nice and efficient ! If you would have been more specific on what you call attitude ...I will certainly review my 2020 budget to even more focus on customer service . Mentioning the bottled water that we sell , it is for sure a decision that we made as you probably don't realise that having a cabaret involves quite a bit of costs including costumes and training . However if we have the pleasure to host you again in Barcode we will make sure that you get free bottled water through the night as it seems to be your favourite beverage .Thanks for giving a very good feedback for Miss Wong as we do love them as much as you do .

Lovely atmosphere
Nov 2019
We passed by and the great ambiance of this rather small facade made us curious. And we’re so happy to have discovered this place! Friendly owner, very welcoming, the show is an absolute fantasy (in a good way). We had so much laughs !

We would recommend this bar to anyone going to siem reap - gays or straight, it wouldn’t matter !

Great little bar
Nov 2019 • Couples
Great little bar with a decent show, especially compared to its neighbours in Thailand.
Extensive list of drinks available and friendly staff.
Although ran out of Smirnoff vodka and ended up paying more for Grey Goose, 2 days later and still no Smirnoff- so had to pay more for GG!
Music also very good.
