Best Place to Watch the European Championship in Phnom Penh – Score Bar
Currently the most popular sports bar to watch the Euros os Score Bar, probably the most well known sports bar in Phnom Penh, up in the BKK area. The bar is huge, operating on two floors, BUT it fills up very very quickly – particularly on big game nights, such as England vs Germany!
What are the drink prices like at Score Bar Phnom Penh?
The drink and food menu is everything you would expect from a sports bar, with burgers, pizzas, fries and all that kind of jazz. Technically they have well priced 3 liter draft beer, but they were out of it last night.
You can though get pitchers of cocktails for $15, and mixed drinks such as a Gin and Tonic for $3 – not riverside prices, but reasonable enough.
