Shane,
I think your fellow posters may take your post a bit more seriously if you spelled the country and the capital city correctly.

Yes, there is plenty of vibrant nightlife in PP. Martini's Pub has been famous for years, justifiably so. They have a bar of course, diso, food, pool tables, show movies nightly. Plenty of ladies, both Vietnamese & Cambodian available for dancing.
Street 95 & 350.

Sharkey's Bar is also an institution in PP. American owned & operated. Music, food/drink, ladies for dancing. Street 126.

Walkabout is Ozzie owned & operated. Sports bar, pool tables, darts, dancing, ladies.
St. 51 & 174.

Cyrcee Club is smaller and less well known, St. 13, #49. All the motodop taxi boys will know where these clubs are. If there are 2 or more of you, a car taxi would be a better way to go.

Shane,
There are 3-4 ways up to Siem Reap. Flying is pretty pricey, not for most of us. Boat is $22, fast, fun, good photo opportunities. Bus/van from guesthouses, Capitol GH, Narin's GH, $5-6. There are share taxis, but I don't recommend them. Too cramped and no faster than the van. PM me if you have questions.

vegasmike - you should be ashamed of yourself for not mentioning Heart of Darkness. How can any nightclub that still plays Vanilla Ice every night not be on your list of places to party!!!!!!!!!!!!

How much you looking to pay for food and drink in PP? And are the local ladies available in these nightclubs (not sex trade, i mean legit 'pulling') :)

Hi beers are around $1.50-$2 depending on where you are in PP, a lot of bars down sisowath quay have happy hours so beers can be cheaper. Food is a little more expensive then Thailand, but you can easily have a meal for $3-4. There are street stalls as well, but I didn't risk trying in Cambodia, hygine conditions are not as good as Thailand (from what I saw)

As for local ladies I don't know the answer to that question, but girls who are not prostitutes in Cambodia generally would not go out "pulling", just remember their culture is very different to the UK, USA, Australia etc. People in Cambodia are on the whole modest people, "pulling" is not really the done thing. But I'm sure male forum members maybe able to answer this better, they may have seen a different side to what I saw.

Dave,
I have a great t-shirt from the Heart of Darkness, but what a s**thole of a bar.

Ever since Hun Sen's nephews shot and killed a few folks in HoD, I give it a miss. Go down the street and enjoy yourself at the Walkabout.
