Hi­jinks in the CBD

Swing through the art de­coin­spired din­ing room and you’ll find your­self in The Black Swan’s new al fresco space. Live mu­sic – typ­i­cally jazzed-up ver­sions of pop and rock stan­dards – will make you for­get you’re be­side one of the busiest streets in the city.

Make like a mem­ber of the mon­eyed flock around you and or­der the Ta­jima wagyu striploin ($60), a grain-fed cut – and add on a half por­tion of Maine lob­ster ($30) while you’re at it. Since a dram wouldn’t be the best idea for sip­ping out­side, go for the Whisky Busi­ness ($21), a cock­tail of chamomi le­in­fused whisky, straw­berry jam, mint and cit­rus.

19 Ce­cil St (6438 3757, the­black­swan. Raf­fles Place. Mon 11.30am11pm; Tue-Thu 11.30am-mid­night; Fri 11.30-1am; Sat 5pm-mid­night.

THE BEST TIME TO GO… Dur­ing happy hour, of course. From 5 to 8pm on week­days, house­pours, wines and draft beers go for $9 a glass, and oys­ters $2 a shell.
