Chef Jonny Schwass welcomed guests to the opening of his new venture, Harlequin Public House on the corner of Christchurch's Salisbury and Montreal Streets.

Schwass and his team lost their restaurant in the February 2011 earthquake and have been working hard to get back up and running.

Harlequin Public House is on the 1890s site of the Junction Hotel and takes its inspiration from the "1920s in Europe, the speakeasy and all that went with that time", says Schwass.

The establishment features an oyster and champagne bar, a 50-seat bistro for dining, a 1920s cocktail lounge and a private dining area for special events.
