Bouchon Wine bar Phnom Penh is a brand new addition to Phnom Penh's after work scene.
This elegant wine bar in Phnom Penh features an excellent selection of french wines, most of which come from Bordeaux and have been selected and imported exclusively for this venue.

The décor of the Bouchon wine bar is elegant and unique, with a cool blend of colonial and industrial style made evident by concrete floors, factory lamps and mirrors, along with a large U-shaped central bar dominating the room.

There's a menu of finger foods including tartines (toast slicers with cheese or meat) as well as cheese plates, patés, smoked meat plates and a delicious sugar tart for the sweet tooth.

Open from 4pm to midnight except on monday, BOUCHON is a delightful place to stop on the way home from work for a good glass of French wine or a good spot to meet friends before heading out to a club.

NEW DINER MENU:
Coq au vin
Beef Blanquette
Chicken provencal
Spaghetti Foie gras
Spaghetti Clams
Roasted chicken
beef carpaccio

My visual definition of a wine bar is a quiet place with low music, dim lights, and a well-stocked supply of alcoholic drinks. Today i finally found what i've been seeking. Filled with nice wooden tables and seats, with a bar right smack in the middle, Bouchon Wine Bar Phnom Penh impressed upon first sight.
Wooden tables are stamped with wine varieties, allowing customers to easily pick one from the list.A shelf full of assorted liquoors is right behind the bartender, accompanied with wooden rows of different types of wines to choose from.
Jazz music plays in the background, allowing customers to have audible conversatios

All the 40 wines at Bouchon are French, but the clientele of the unlikely hotspot on Street 246 is a mixed crowd of businesspeople, NGO staff, interns, royals and embassy folk. It's only been open for five months, does not have a website and has yet to advertise; but some weekend nights it is so packed it takes longer to order a drink than it does to drink one. And the odd thing is that you don't mind waiting.

Owner Cedric Gertgen puts Bouchon's quick success down to the uniqueness of its clientele. "People create the atmosphere," he says, adding that the strategy was to open in a location that was a little bit hard to find. "We wanted people to have to go a little bit out of the way to find us."

While near the Riverside, Bouchon does not attract the same crowd. "Bouchon is for people who enjoy talking as much as drinking. Our customers are sophisticated but not pretentious," Gertgen says.

An eclectic design - exposed brick, industrial lights, concrete floor, cabaret-style mirrors with cheap-red curtains - and seating options that encourage conversation were the first steps. "It had to be something different," Gertgen says over espresso.

"I was going out to the same five bars and they all looked the same," the four-year resident of Phnom Penh explains.

An advertising executive, he relied on word-of-mouth, starting by impressing people he knew, and encouraging them to get the news out. He also made wine, primarily Bordeaux, the main attraction. Only two of the 40 he offers can be purchased at shops in Phnom Penh, he says. Twelve can be bought by the glass - from US$3.50 to $9 each - while bottles range from $17 to $95.

"I love wine and there was a growing thirst for it here," Gertgen says. The cocktail list leans heavily towards martinis ($4 to $5 each with a two for one happy hour between 9pm and 10pm), but includes most of the regulars and shots.

Bouchon can be spontaneous. Even though there is no dance floor, customers dance to the left of the bar, and sometimes on top of it. "The dancing started in January," Bouchon recalls. Business has surged since then, but it still remains uneven: some weekend nights the bar is less than one-quarter full. DJs arrive twice a month, and the menu is being expanded from finger food to French home cooking, with a menu focused on five dishes.

Gertgen describes Phnom Penh's nightlife as "volatile" - with customers constantly shifting between venues, as well as in and out of the county. Spontaneous people add energy but it's a step-by-step process to gain and keep such a clientele, Gertgen says.

Bouchon is open from 4pm Tuesday to Sunday. During the week it closes between midnight and 1am, but stays open an hour or so later on Fridays and Saturdays.

Staff said they were paid double what they received at previous jobs and that their tips were more than five times higher than what they received at bars along the Riverside.

They also described the customer as more polite.
