Just up the road from the Savoy Hotel is Reids Hotel, where during the season, ladies in ballgowns are waltzed around the ballroom floor by their beaus in evening suits to the airs from the orchestra. Its like stepping back in time. Take cognac and cigars on the balcony while the ladies are ' powdering theirs noses'.
