Hello Mr. Absolute..here I come with my friends and trash my night away...
Excellent music very atmosphere
Nice club with good music :)
Despite all the reviews about this being a hostess bar, my friends and I had a great time partying without being hassled by prostitutes. The club is definitely loud and rowdy, probably not everyone's ideal night out but it is definitely good for a young crowd wanting to have a blast. The music was pretty typical top-40, the DJ was decent, and the club closes very late. A good place to check out if you want a party night.
Entering with a group of friends at their request (all of them returning patrons) I was warned I should see some seedy goings-on. The honest truth is that a long island ice tea robbed me of most powers of observation but it was plain to see that the club was brimming with sex tourists and their prey- prostitutes catering to a terrifying range of tastes.On entering, the imposing bouncers greeted my group with a grin and waved us on in. Whether owing to our ethnicity or mere familiarity I wasn't entirely certain. While I personally didn't witness any violence, I was told that warring factions of Khmer youths are in regular attendance.The dĂŠcor and lighting in the venue couldn't have matched the name more perfectly- the worryingly enthusiastic older men were but the cherry on top!It struck me as odd that such an infamous venue should be so small, dwarfed in size by many small town clubs in Northern Ireland. However, while the place was packed the music wasn't half bad during my evening- mostly dance mixes of pop songs. I had a very enjoyable evening of dancing among the crowd though I can't help but feel guilty for financing a den of what must surely be some truly awful activities.In summary, as well as Apocalypse Now, Heart of Darkness will undoubtedly bring to mind the famous line from Star Wars, specifically it couldn't be better described as 'a wretched hive of scum and villainy'.... But an oddly charming one, if there can be such an oxymoron.
Iv been there a few times with various girls ,they always want to drag me to heart or PontoonDancing not really my thing, music volume gets louder as night gets laterBut watching what goes on around you in there is most entertainingI had a good evening there celebrating one of the girls 24th BirthdayDefinetly worth a look as is Pontoon [end of Golden sorya mall]Iv posted 2 pix on Heart of Darkness facebook page
This was the best night club I visited in SE Asia on my travels. Everything you need for a good time is there, the sound system was banging, everyone was having an awesome time and I never once saw any trouble (and I did go there about 10 times in 2 weeks!) what so ever. The bar was fine and the locals were all great. I would recommend the place to anyone looking for a good night out, I certainly intend to return one day. Viva the Heart of Darkness!
Great place to party
