What to do when you’re trapped in the CBD during F1

From Sep 15-20 The Black Swan is presenting F1 themed events and a week-long celebration of the finer things in life.

If you’re stuck in the CBD over F1 week you can wait out the traffic jams with a drink in hand at The Black Swan’s extended happy hour Mon to Fri 5pm-9pm. Or if you’re in the mood for something a little more classy, head down to a jazz session at The Powder Room featuring The Steve McQueens on Sep 16 from 8pm.

For anyone who does have a F1 ticket, the party can continue at The Black Swan too with complimentary post-race oysters at The Powder Room and drink deals long into the night.

For even more F1 excitement, we’ve got the complete lowdown on the races, concerts, parties, staycations and everything else in our guide to the F1 season
