Jazz up your Wednesdays!
Papillon Bistrot, the new all-day bar & restaurant in Psychiko, magnificently channels the heady jazz-bistro culture of Paris and New York from yesteryear. Reflecting aesthetic sensibilities from the Belle Epoque to the Jazz Age, Papillion is the perfect stage for decadent unrushed meals and a spot of nostalgia.
With high ceilings, retro wall finishings and attention to period detail, it has a sepia-tinted feel-good quality that is immediately inviting. Playing on Papillon’s bluesy character, ‘ Jazz the 2’, a talented duo rearrange jazz staples and swing anthems from Frank Sinatra, Nina Simone, Dean Martin, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, Michael Buble and Amy Winehouse among others every Wednesday evening from 9.30p.m onwards.
Drop by after work for a cocktail and tasty nibbles or book ahead for a romance-filled evening or come with a bunch of girlfriends to croon along to jazz standards – either way, Papillon’s sundry spaces, both intimate and public, allow you to set the tone for the evening.
The dishes here are refreshingly different too with novel entries to pique your curiosity and homey comfort foods tweaked ever so lightly to meet exigent millennial standards. Choose from an eclectic and satisfying menu that’s ideal for sharing from the Veal Carpaccio, Asparagus salad with pecorino to the moreish Australian Black Angus Rib-Eye chargrilled on a Josper Oven and the perfectly braised Canard a l’Orange or the potato gnocchi with wagyu beef bolognese. You’ll want to leave room for that lighter than air English Pudding with white chocolate and vanilla biscuit.
