Metro Rahu

THE PLACE For years, Metro Hassakan—or simply, Metro—has been the capital city’s go-to spot for classy cocktails, elegant nibbles and a refined yet casual atmosphere. So it makes sense that Metro’s second incarnation, Metro Rahu, has been a hit since opening up the street in July 2011. This is the darker, sexier, more ambient sister, with concrete walls and floors, black leather seating, low lighting and a somewhat sinister-looking painting of a young monk watching over customers. Cocktails are mixed behind the huge wooden bar, which flanks the entire length of the space. THE DRINKS Try the Ginger Rogers (mint, ginger syrup, gin, lime juice) or a tamarind martini, perfect with treats like truffle-infused mac ’n’ cheese. 159 Sisowath Quay; +855 23 215 179.

THE PLACE With empty bottles of vino used as decoration and vintage-stamped wooden tables reminiscent of wine crates, it’s not hard to guess what the theme of this French-run bar is. Settle into a cozy red-leather booth and sip your choice of pour in this tranquil, conversation-friendly gathering spot, where exposed brick, metal chandeliers, large windows and a dominant wooden bar create an industrial-rustic-chic setting. Look out for specialty theme nights, like the oyster and wine event. THE DRINKS Nearly 20 varieties of mostly French reds, whites and rosés are served by the glass, including Médoc and Château Doisy Daëne. There’s also a range of home-infused vodkas (pepper-vanilla, sweet basil, ginger) for one-of-a-kind martinis. 3 St. 246; +855 77 881 103.
