Of legend and lore The FCC's riverside establishment is the choice home base for all travelers to Cambodia’s capital city.
Along Sisowath Quay’s river promenade, where the Mekong and Tonle Sap Rivers converge, lives FCC Phnom Penh, where the bustle of street vendors, local activities and visiting tourists comingle in this decidedly popular destination. Neighbouring the National Museum of Cambodia and the 1937 Art Deco landmark, Central Market, this French colonial “Mansion” and its upstairs terrace restaurant and bar, known endearingly as “the F,” has been a favourite gathering place for countless impromptu meetings and cultural events since its founding in 1993 by a coterie of expat reporters, photographers and humanitarians following the end of the Cambodian-Vietnamese War.
A major renovation of FCC Phnom Penh is taking place, with the anticipated re-opening in mid-2021. The reimagined, upscale FCC Phnom Penh, with architectural design by Asma Architecture and interior design by Bloom Architecture, will offer a modern restaurant with Atrium, Sky Bar overlooking the Bassac River, gym, swimming pool, gallery, multi-functional meeting room and 35 new, stylish guest rooms and suites. Four impressive suites, located in the French colonial ‘Mansion’, overlooking the National Museum, will offer landmark luxury in the capital.
As of October 2020 and during the resort renovation, a Pop-Up Restaurant on the ground level of the FCC will allow customers to enjoy delectable fusion Asian and Spanish dishes in a unique riverfront setting.
