Re Bars,   Been there done that last week and I have to say Kampot is getting a little tidier now the new market is nearly complete. There are a couple of new restaurants/cafe's and reasonably good priced and clean guest house's near the river and bars. Worth going for a couple of days or so to relax from the madness of Snooky! The bars at night still the same, a bit quiet, but maybe fun to be had on the right day!
The road to Kampot is being repaired and not half as bad as I expected! Watch out for sneaky potholes especially near the bridges!

If you're young and want a dusk to dawn blow-out party, Naga Resort across the river is the place for you. Every weekend, many times more often, the hormone-gone-wild 20 something clientele host theme parties, where they wear costumes and carry on in an abandoned manner.
If your over 30, it might be too crazed an atmosphere. Those kids drink and dance til they pass-out mid dance step, sleep for a few, then hop up and go for it again.
Naga certainly ain't sedate.
Parties start 10PM or so.

Sounds like KO Phang Nga/ Vang Vieng

Will  give it a pass next time i am in town.

Hows is the scene for over 50??  Are there a decent amount of places to say in the $20-$50 range??

So is this a westerner or Khmer type do with Khmer music? I've never seen any hormone-gone-wild 20 something's westerners in Kampot!
Something between this place and the sedate atmosphere bars there would be nice! :up:

Not sure about the over 50 nightlife, but heard rumors one bar specializes in old geezer drinks; like Geritol with a couple shots of Absolut Vodka and a twist of lime. Supposed to get the blood flowing. 
Kampot is a smallish place, Steve at Bar Red is a good source of info. Stop by there to get the over 50 lowdown.
Generally speaking, the places on Guesthouse Street all have bars, Front Street (riverside) has bars that cater to oldsters and across the estuary (river) the thatched roof resorts have bars that cater to the younger set.
For those looking for female companionship there's at least a dozen venues that serve that purpose - both sides of the river- look for the red lights.

I believe pretty girls may also be found strolling the esplanade in the evenings.

Are they hospitality workers?

I'm not sure but there is a Steve that has a bar near CUS (Cambodian Univers of Specialties and that big concrete "2000" sculpture) that edits the Survival Guide - he's the one I'm referring to as a source of info - for a moment thought that place was Bar Red cause I couldn't remember the sign, which it isn't. But it is the Steve associated with the Survival Guide.

Kampot is civilised.
Still don't know a good hotel there though.
Moliden ain't up to much.

I'm staying in a place called Champa lodge at the minute. It really is lovely. The rooms are Khmer bungalows with a western influence. All really nice touches inside. beautiful views of the river and the shower is ultra modern one of the big rain forest ones. Its about 10 mins by tuk tuk out of town so nice and secluded $35 per night. The food in the restaurant is really good and they have a big selection of Cambodian and Belgien beers. The owner Stephan and hhis family are great hosts.
