One of my recent interior photography projects in Phnom Penh was for the newly opened HighGround Sky Lounge Bar on the top level of Amass Central Tower in BKK1.

As a commercial project, it was a dream to photograph with the best views of the city and the river. The design reminds you of similar establishments in Bangkok, Hong Kong and London. A first in Cambodia and will become the go-to sky bar in Phnom Penh.

Already it has made a name as one of the city’s most Instagrammable spots. The main entrance and bar, wine wall, secluded dining areas, the views! The list goes on and one for amazing spots for photos. A real joy if you are a professional photographer who enjoys interiors photography.

The HighGround Sky Lounge Bar is the brainchild of Pradeep Dhakal, an experienced mixologist, sommelier and hospitality manager. He has a long history of working in the industry across 8 different countries at some of the world’s top hotels and resorts.

On the interiors photography side, for me, the most photogenic space (and there are many) is the main bar in The Lounge. A long rectangular bar offers un-spoilt views across the city, through floor to ceiling windows. With the firm lines, lighting, and design, any angle will make an outstanding interior photograph. I would have loved to have more opportunities to shoo this space.

Next would be The Rooftop and the lower level of the roof terrace with a second, long bar area and some of the best views of Phnom Penh.

HighGround Sky Lounge Bar is a must location to visit while in Phnom Penh!
