This place has been around for 20 years. I came when it first opened and it's still a great friendly safe spot to mingle. Dance. And have a bit of fun after a busy day. Highly recommend it!

We only had one nigh for clubbing in Phnom Penh and decided to try the famous Heart. Had a fun time after midnight with friendly locals. Took break away from hectic dance floor at the upstairs chill out area on sofas, which was most welcome feature. Shot some pool too. One of the best nights of our travel. Can only... More

Great craft beer in the heart of district 1. This place is still relatively new but the staff is seasoned. Our server Yong was well informed on the beers and styles. We felt very welcomed. They have a collaboration with P4P (pizza for piece) which was amazing. P4P requires a reservation at their restaurant in Saigon but this place offers... More

Another night club, so if not your cuppa, stop reading now! If you go in a group, just take over the dance floor, people will love it! If you are alone, plenty of friendly people there, we found it a great way to meet locals. Security team outside is polite, if you are the same to them! I like the... More

seems to be more popular with the gay set than for straight people,be aware when you come here or you might experience some unexpected groping from behind.can get extremely crowded take care of your belongings watch your pockets.better to be here with friends or a group than solo.some not so nice types can frequent here.

We like to think that the Heart welcomes everyone who comes here, gay or straight and we hope they enjoy themselves. As with other places, the Heart can attract people whose aim may not be so friendly, always take care, that's why we have vigilant security at the Heart. More

Truly as my title suggests, its rather mental here... in a good way! Great vibes, music seems to be of a crazy mix but it works with the crowd. Not your average "nose in the air" club.... rather local but fun! Definitely a place to let your hair down and a must visit when in Phnom Penh. As with all... More

Turned up here at around midnight with a big group of people and it was really fun. Not sure if it was the club or just having a group of friends there that made it good (most likely the latter) but it was definitely a good place to party. Drinks are a little expensive but there isn't an entrance fee.

I have been there many times as my ex girlfriend works there. Heart is predominantly a gay club. It's a popular club and has good, very loud music. It is dark inside. It gets crowded at about 11pm. Closes around 4am. A lot of staff speak very little English. They are friendly. There are girls soliciting there, not the employees,... More
