Emergency Room bar opens
The huge silver carousel horses hanging from the ceiling of Emergency Room, the newest addition to Phnom Penh’s buzzing Street 240½ alleyway, are indicative of the fun yet industrial feel of this stylish bar. Developed by the team behind The Dollhouse salon and Paperdolls boutique, the venue contains pared back echoes of its bright and bubbly sister venues, with pink, purple and green touches lifting grey cement walls and a statement black and white tiled floor. Along with its lounge vibe and chilled-out electro music, drinks include a selection of 10 ‘doctor’s orders’ cocktails ($5 each) with fantastical names that include the Legless Cinderella and Barbie Doll-licious. A monthly drink special, along with a happy hour running from 6pm to 9pm in August, will ensure that revellers are drawn to its special brand of medicine.
Street 240½, Phnom Penh.
