For more than two decades, the Black Swan, located in the Omni Houston Hotel in the Uptown/Galleria area, has been one of the city’s most popular bars for locals and visitors alike.

Locals and Omni Hotel guests stop by for a relaxing happy hour lounge scene or an upscale, energetic late-night DJ-dancing scene. The bar in the Omni Hotel's signature black marble swans welcome guests at the entrance, The silver-and-black motif radiates glamour and edge, while a fireplace adds cozy comfort. Warm walls, sconces, wood flooring, and a long dark granite and copper bar backlit with subtle green LED lighting lend a decidedly upscale vibe to the modern bar. Popular bites from the bar menu include jumbo shrimp cocktail, chicken quesadillas, and New York strip sandwich. The martini menu includes more than a dozen varieties. Or try their signature cocktail, the Black Swan, made with Vodka, fresh lemon juice, fresh blackberries and Champagne.

The bar can be reserved for private parties up to 250 guests and offers happy hour specials Tuesday to Friday from 5pm to 8:30pm.

Like to dance? Stop by for DJ music on Friday and Saturday nights from 9pm to 2am.

The bar calls its cozy, curtained u-shaped seating nooks "snuggeries."
