Reina, Istanbul

44 Muallim Nacı Caddesi
Tel: 90 212 259 5919's insider take:

This summer club extraordinaire inspires a more ambivalent reaction among Istanbullus than any other venue you could name. The outdoor complex sits on the edge of the Bosphorus just near the first suspension bridge, housing a handful of chic dining rooms around the periphery of a huge dance floor that buzzes into the small hours underneath a giant open-air chandelier. Excessive bling is the order of the day: Brace yourself for Istanbul's shortest skirts hanging off the jailbait bodies of the city's best-bred debutantes (even if that's not your sort of thing, it's worth putting up with them for the most fabulous setting in town). Door policy is strict, so dress smart and keep group male–female ratios balanced.
