Attraction details
Owner description: Reina, with its opening 17th January 2002, has achieved its ambition, by becoming one of the most prestigious entertainment venues not only in Turkey but also on the globe. Having taken over the most elite restaurant brands, Reina has continued its success within the entertainment sector and has been the perfect host to domestic and international quests alike. Famous across the borders, is Reina not only famous as an entertainment venue but also has become a tourist hotspot as well as a meeting point for international statesmen, a location where businessmen sign agreements worth billions of dollars and where world stars enjoy their meals and the entertainment. Having a drink at the Reina is indeed a very special pleasure since the view to Europe on one side and to Asia on the other side is truly unique. Add to this the silhouette of Istanbul with its historical buildings and its magnificent bridge, and you have the perfect skyline. Since the day it opened, Reina has become a valuable part of the Su Entertainment Group, improving quality and increasing its success every year.

The day started out to be raining and a clear sky was no where in site. Bummed as we were we still head to the famous Reina at around 10:30 in the evening. To our surprise we easily found a small table for drinks thinking that the night is gonna be boring given that the outdoor seating area was closed due to the weather. as the night progressed the crowd started flocking in and in no time the place was packed. The weather cleared up and the management decided to open the outdoor area where everyone hurried to secure a place. The music blasted and the rest was a great night to say the least. I thought that the prices were on the high side but turns out that this is the stand pricing in Istanbul since alcohol seems to be heavily taxed. To sum up, the venue, music and atmosphere was great. 2 thumbs up!

We have been in this club Saturday evening and it was perfect! Location is very nice with beautiful view of Bosporus and bridge. All club in outside on the terraces. It is a little bit expensive but atmosphere is great! I would recommend this place to everybody, must to see for sure!

on 6th Nov, I went with 3 other male friends to Reina hoping to get in. I was told by the security staff at the entrance that we would not be allowed in because we were 4 males. We were only visiting the city of Istanbul for four days and did not know any females to join us into the venue. We were willing to pay the asking price but still were not allowed in, but the security staff did seem happy to accept a bribe when we presented the offer to them as a way to test the integrity of the venue and it's staff. As four Asian men, we also felt that there was an underlying distaste of the venue for Asian people. I would not recommend this venue to anybody. We went to Taksim Sq. afterwards and had a good night. This venue is a disgrace.

Th location is simply perfect on the water beside the bosphorous bridge.
I liked the decor of the place as well.
The music was pretty good.
There was an entrance fee of 50 Turkish Lira on the door.
I just went to the clubbing and not dinner.

I will go again for sure in my next visit to Istanbul!

Where is the service with a smile. Food was pretty good but on the expensive side. This is the place to be seen. Many celebrities visit this restaurant. There are five restaurants but the views and atmosphere are what you pay for. The restaurant is right on the riverside with water taxis arriving alongside. The bar areas are decorated well and provide a great ambiance.
