The iconic Foreign Correspondent's Club was never a club for foreign correspondents - though it has hosted a fair number of thirsty journalists over the years. The FCC opened in the wake of the UN sponsored UNTAC peace mission in the 1990s (not the during the Vietnam War as is often assumed). It became the essential watering hole in the 1990s. The FCC's located in an airy space with views across the Ton Le Sap River. Big food and drinks menu. Service isn't its strong suit. Especially popular at sunset - though plenty of new riverfront bars are competing for the sunset crowd too. Hosts occasional live music.
