At the heart of Singapore’s central business district lies The Black Swan, housed in a charming 1930s Art Deco building, stunningly restored to its glorious original form. Named after a financial term which describes an unexpected event almost impossible to predict; its goal is to inject fresh glamour and life into the district.
The Black Swan’s menu draws inspiration from the aura of the establishment, orchestrating a collection of classic dishes presented with contemporary flair. This runs the gamut from iconic bistro fare to late-night supper indulgences whipped up by a team of talented chefs.
Whet your appetite with half a dozen fresh oysters, then follow up with the Duck Confit and indulgent Lobster & Wagyu Ribeye. Pre or post-meal, be sure to also make a trip upstairs to The Powder Room, where their philosophy is very straightforward: “Cocktails first. Questions later”.
