We had a fun gay night out here during our weekend in Phnom Penh. Doug the owner is really friendly as are all the staff. We unfortunately missed the drag show, but an excuse to rush back :)

It would be a good idea to check with the bar as the first time I went there, they didn't have a show. When I did see it, it started at around 10pm. It was pretty good and worth seeing.
