Description: The Island Bar easily stands out in Angkor Night Market, with its enormous, cone-shaped, thatched roof. Located right next to Entrance A, this makes it a perfect meeting point. Waiting on shopping friends or family can become a relaxed pleasure, as you enjoy a cold beer, or work your way through their long list of great value cocktails, or fresh and fruity mocktails and smoothies. The combination of the spectacular bamboo roof, the open-air ambience, and the friendly atmosphere can certainly make it easy to forget you're in a market in the center of town. It feels more like a place you'd find on an exotic island beach. There's a good selection of bar-friendly food on the menu too. So there's a strong likelihood you'll find you're having so much fun you'll want to stick around at the Island Bar, well into the night.

great little find in the middle of the night market.

really cool setting, very international blend of music which was all good, and they let you sit down and eat food purchased from the few food vendor stall opposite which is good.

drinks are alright prices (beer starting at $.75 and cocktails $3) .. didn't see any happy hours though, but a nice quiet place but a relaxing drink anytime of the day

We were heading for the night market and once inside quickly came across the Island Bar. The happy hour sign drew us in and what a pleasant place it was. Nice relaxed feel about the place and some decent beer and cocktails to boot. Singer wasn't great but he was more in the background with decent service and no hassles. Good prices also. Nice way to relax and have a quick drink. Enjoyed it.

On holiday and whilst some of the family had a massage next door we ordered a cocktail and beer. When everyone was done with their massages they joined us for another drink. Fab cocktail menu but you can order other drink combo's too if you want to mix it up a bit.

Some of the group went back for another treatment at the spa and took their drink with them, bliss.

Hidden behind the booths of the night market is this little gem. Very nice atmosphere & decor. Well-staffed & trained. Drinks are good but not cheap by Siem Reap standards. Was a great place to wait out the the wife's market shopping binges. She liked it too which helped slow her spending. We went back twice because it's a great place to hang. Highly recommend.

Been to almost every bar in Siem Reap over the years but we always end up in the Island Bar. Drinks are very reasonably priced - just like it is almost everywhere else but what makes the place is the staff. Have been served by a few different servers over the years and they have all been great. An added bonus is that you can get a massage at the spot just behind the bar and get your drinks sent to you. Makes you feel like a king on a paupers budget.
