The Black Swan

4 Riverway Dr. | Houston, TX 77056

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 the late-night DJ-dancing scene. The bar in the Omni Hotel's signature black marble swans welcome guests at the entrance, 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.

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."
