Sample as Much Gin Your Heart Desires at Elephant Bar


The Elephant Bar is the number one must-snap on the agenda of any Instagammer or visitor to the Cambodian capital of Phnom Penh. 

No place oozes elegance, nostalgia and panache like the bar in Raffles Hotel Le Royal. Wicker chairs and leather sofas bask behind high French windows and arched colonnades in true colonial style. Built in 1929 as the east wing of Hotel Le Royal, this room has long hosted the rich and the royal, jokers and knaves. You get the impression that if this bar could talk, oh what tales it might tell.

The Elephant Bar stocks no less than 100 brands of gin, arguably the largest collection in the country, and its menu lists a “Ginventory” of “Gin-fusions” from Earl Grey Tea Gin to Kaffir Gin to Kampot Pepper Gin.

And if you’re spoilt for choice at The Elephant Bar, you could always ask head bartender Pisai what he would recommend. With a dance through your taste buds, the dashing Pisai can separate the “delicate, fruity and refreshing” from the “full body and dry”. Though chances are he’ll quietly introduce you to his personal masterpiece, the Rose Martini. 

Happy Hour on a Friday and it’s Negroni time!

But it’s not all imbibery and skullduggery at the Elephant Bar; the place also serves up a lovely Afternoon Tea. And in the evening, you can order meat from a grill station or a selection of tapas. You might also catch sight of Cambodia’s Princess Sita, who works as an ambassador for Raffles. She usually pops into the hotel two or three times a week.

Open daily from 12 noon till 12 midnight (Happy Hour daily 4pm – 9pm), The Elephant Bar is situated inside Raffles Hotel Le Royal. To book a table or for more information, go to: https://www.raffles.com/phnom-penh/dining/elephant-bar/
