- Night Out
May 11, 2018
Uber‐exclusive and super swish, the Black Diamond club is located under the five star Grand Hôtel de Bordeaux and entrance is by reservation only. You’ll need a fairly hefty bank balance too as it’s pretty much Champagne all the way here, but those who do manage to get through the doors are assured first class service to match the first classwine cellar of Grand Crus and exceptional vintages. Havana connoisseurs are as well catered for as wine buffs, with a cigar cellar and special smoking area in which to savour them. The bar is managed by Lilian Laslandes and Nissa Saveljic, two former stars of the Girondins de Bordeaux football club, and the purple banquettes, ice‐filled tables and fridges of Champagne have clearly been designed to appeal to the high spending football crowd and their entourages, looking for somewhere to end their night in style. As the night turns into the early hours of the morning, resident DJs get the crowd going with a mix of music ranging from soul to electro. And if a reservation‐only club just doesn’t feel exclusive enough, Black Diamond also offers a VIP area, where one of the club’s DJs will personally host private parties for up to 40 guests.
