Reyna on King, which alike the Bar Reyna is absolutely stunning, one-of-a-kind decor. The owner, Nicki Laborie, designed this place herself using copper, rose gold, whites, and lush greens to bring a more light and tropical feel to the place. Along the wall is a white neon sign that says “reine,” which is “queen” in French and references Laborie’s French roots. Reyna on King has large windows that open out onto the main street and allow lots of natural light. Another cool feature of this spot is the realistic-looking jungle of artificial plants that hang from the ceiling adding to the tropical feeling. This idea was inspired by a bar Laborie had visited in Spain. This little urban oasis has a fresh look and is super instragramable.
