Hg2 : The Hedonist


Leila used to be king of Istanbul’s nightclub hill but has now become Sortie, lost some of its brand value and so surrendered the meritoriously glittering, fake tiara of victory to Reina.

With its Bosphorus waterfront venue, its confusing array of expensive ‘guest’ restaurants and bars in Istanbul, and last, but certainly not least (and in fact first, in that it’s plastered over the entrance), its enormous hoarding, touchingly depicting a red Porsche sports coupé, Reina has the all necessary attributes of leadership.

It’s large, expensive and enormously popular with Istanbul’s celeb-party crowd. The design is plush-minimal, cream furniture, black stone small decorative fireplaces that look as if they are from British Gas’s Contemporary Range. But the décor isn’t really the main attraction.

For the etiquette of mating rituals in expensive Istanbul clubs, see our review of Anjelique. Finally, as with Anjelique, if you have a yacht you can avoid the front-door heavies and glide into Reina’s own dockings bays (ring ahead to reserve your berth).
