Usually played every night by some of the most talented musicians you will see, this is a relaxed rooftop place where the local beer flows as freely as the good music. There is a big sofa in the corner, the best seats in the house, but it gets occupied very quickly so you may want to come early for that. The sunset over the river gels well with the music, and the owners are relaxed enough to let you join the musicians if you get drunk enough. One of the best Kampot nightlife places!
