Photo Gallery: Phnom Penh Tower and Eclipse Bar

Nestled on the top of (what I believe is) the third largest building in Phnom Penh is Eclipse Bar, a semi-fancy space open to all and usually packed with middle class (eek! controversial term) Cambodians, mostly young. I visited it recently for the first time in a while and got to see a somewhat-insane sunset. I still need to return for a magical pink sunset, which would be beyond words as well, even more so, but you’ll get a sense of just how magical the views are from this building during daylight hours. Unfortunately they don’t have umbrellas (I don’t think), which would make for a wonderful daytime experience. I’m assuming it’s not part of the business plan because of all the freak rainstorms. You’ll also get to see in this gallery some pictures of the interior of the building below the bar, which was unfinished. First, from the street:
