Part bar, part custom-built motorcycle showroom, Hangar 44 is making a big impact on Phnom Penh’s Bassac Lane small bar scene.

Note: The information provided in this review was correct at time of publishing but may change. For final clarification please check with the relevant service

Hangar 44 is one of the most interesting of the cool collection of micro-bars to open along Phnom Penh’s Bassac Lane. Part bar and part custom motorcycle showroom, it’s dark and diminutive with lots of steel and concrete over two levels.

A mean looking locally crafted motorcycle that’s up for sale hangs from the roof.

Co-owner Patrick Uong (who also co-owns the motorcycle business Moto Cambodge) isn't mean however. He extends a friendly welcome to all.

Patrick was born in Cambodia, raised in the US and is now very happily ensconced back in the country of his birth.

If it’s too busy or Hangar 44 doesn’t take your fancy, the other small bars of Bassac Lane are seconds away.
