The Mansion in Phnom Penh is the latest addition to FCC’s property, offering insights into history and a unique outlet for arts and entertainment. Visiting guests and Phnom Penh locals now have the ability to stop by this intriguing space and be exposed to the antique, colonial atmosphere at various events throughout each month. By climbing the entryway stairs and exploring the rooms of the ground floor, guests will be exposed to rich ornamentation and sophisticated decoration unlike any other space in the city.
Located on Sothearos Boulevard just behind FCC Phnom Penh, and only a short walk to the Royal Palace and the National Museum, the Mansion has seen many uses over the years. It was constructed between 1910 and 1920 by a wealthy Cambodian trader, but its use as a private residence came to an abrupt end during the rise of the Khmer Rouge in 1975. Following Pol Pot’s occupation of the Cambodian capital, the Mansion saw ownership by the Vietnamese Army, and later the Cambodian Ministry of Interior. Then the Mansion fell into private hands.
In 2009 the beautiful and decayed building was purchased by FCC. Through extensive renovations, the FCC turned this monumental structure into a venue for the Arts. From interior galleries, to outdoor live music and dance performance, the Mansion has become one of Phnom Penh’s most iconic new performance venues. Events at the Mansion include a professional sound system and stage, as well as a bar offering sumptuous food and drink to those wishing to imbibe.
Since March, 2014, the Mansion is open seven nights a week offering a casual outdoor bar environment to wandering customers. Monday nights feature themed music related to historical Cambodia. Wednesdays feature solo cellists, violinists, or guitarists, bringing vibrant and romantic music to our guests who wish to become immersed in the curious property while enjoying a beer or cocktail. The FCC Mansion is also available for private events. Pre-booking is appreciated.
