Barsito is the first and most unique Speakeasy Bar in Phnom Penh. Tucked down the exciting nightlife alleyway of 240 & 1/2, Barsito is dedicated to offering something different to the expat, Khmer & tourist markets. Barsito is composed of three little bars inside, such as the Main Room serving specially designed creative cocktails. The Champagne Bar offering an impressive selection of Champagne, Prosecco, Cava, and Sparkling Cocktails. And also The Club Room with a unique selection of Cigars, Whiskies and Rums. The 240 & 1/2 alleyway offers a wide range of nightlife options including Townhouse Supper Club (the only classy restaurant in PP where the kitchen opens until 1:30am) and 2 new bars opening soon, and of course Bar.sito. For day time there's Artillery Café serving healthy & tasty food, and La Casita Premium Spirits Shop by La Familia. Barsito is derived from Spanish, meaning "small bar".

Really nice place!!!! You go from one room to an other by using secret doors hidden behind bookshelf! With 3 different ambiance you can have good cocktails, good food, Champagne and the main room is a non smoking area which is really appreciated in Phnom Penh! I highly recommend it!

My boyfriend and I stumbled upon this bar and we loved it! From the postmodern decor to the speakeasy secret bookshelf entrance to a champagne bar and smoking room this place was so cool but also had a very chill vibe. The cocktails were legitimately the best we had in Phnom Penh. It might be a little hard to find... More

Very cool themed bar with a speakeasy style to it, including secret doorways to a back champagne bar. Good drinks, too

Bar Sito is a small bar popular with expats. The cocktails aren't very good and the room can get really smoky and hot as it has no ventilation, but you're usually in for a pretty good night here. Located next to alley bar you can always pop next door for a drink until this place gets busy. The drinks are... More

I went here with two of my girlfriends as this place wS recommended by another friend from the bar business. Walked in and it was empty except for a 3-4 customers. The drinks menu is really nothing special and the only thing on the menu that looked attractive were the negronis. Ordered them but Fail! They Came with an overload... More

Bar Sito has a great look and offers great cocktails. Unfortunately, they allow smoking and there is absolutely no ventilation. But if you don't mind passive smoking and smelling like the day after a bushfire ... well, then this is the place or you.

I went there with two friends of mine. The place has an amazing atmosphere, super friendly staff. Perfect if you are up for spending a nice, chilled night outside and enjoy a couple of drinks.

The place is small so it has a nice exclusive feel. The Salty Dog was one of the best drinks I ever had period. The music was notably good. Perfect for those who want a hip place to have a few drinks with friends. Located in a quiet alley with little signage. We stumbled upon it on our last night... More

Great atmosphere, small, a tad bit smoky but not overwhelming. Cocktails are cheap and excellent! Music is well curated. Crowd is pretty much all local expats. If you want to be be part of the scene, dress well, and go late-r (around 10.30). A little difficult to find - tell the tuk tuk St. 244 and look for the large... More

Easy to find once you know where to look. I have been to this bar twice and both times I have left feeling it could be better. You do not get much choice in PP for decent bars. The cocktails are good and not expensive but unless you smoke your probably will not enjoy it. Great decor, OK service but... More
