When Raffles first opened its doors, guests couldn’t rely on modern transit to cross the rough terrain on their journey to the hotel. Instead, they came by elephant. And thus the legend of the Elephant Bar was born.
This is Siem Reap’s most celebrated bar. A striking alternative to the bars on Pub Street, the Elephant Bar is all about old-worldly elegance and sophistication. The sipping cabinet contains the largest collection of whiskies and bourbons in Cambodia, to be enjoyed while contemplating the lithographic prints of ancient Angkor and Cambodian life on the walls.
No visit to Angkor Wat would be complete without stopping by the Elephant Bar to taste our signature cocktail, the Airavata – a sublime blend of rum, coconut, passion fruit, lime juice, crème de banane and pineapple juice named in honour of the great white elephant, carrier of Indra and master of the clouds. So come raise a glass to the ten-tusked elephant god with us, and cast good omens over your stay in Siem Reap.
