As you might know, the PPUG team is in sunny London for the so-called English summer – we’re gonna super busy here but will try and keep the club guide going – if not, the basic events listings will always be up to date with the best in Cambodian Clubbing…
As the rainy season kicks in in the Kingdom of Wonder and expats go home for the summer, the amount of events is dying down – however there’s still a plethora of excellent nights available in Phnom Penh, Sihanoukville and Siem Reap as shown by last week epic Stanton Warriors night.
Ok, so lets have a look at this weekend – too many nights to mention here, so we’re going to concentrate on the one-off nights – for the full line-up with all the fantastic regular nights, check our events calendar.
|Work off that humidity at the Pool Party this Friday. Everyone’s favourite Belgian, Wez_T will be spinning the platters that matter while bikini clad girls cavort in the water, or something like that. At the finish of the party, if you make your way to Code Red, there will be a complimentary shot awaiting you – how very civilised! https://www.facebook.com/events/721829134546591|
|If animals are more your thing, then join well known shirt wearer and Party Animal DJ Simon C Vent for an Animal Party at the Frost Bar on St 246 (sounds like the perfect place to escape the heat).
