Summer has finally arrived and we're well and truly sweating. It's now officially acceptable to start celebrating Christmas and drink during the week.

Here are 5 awesome things to do this week in Melbourne.

Murder Mystery At House of Corrections

For the less than jolly people out there, House of Corrections’ new murder mystery will ask you to solve the ‘sleighing’ of Santa (get it?). Each guest will play a Christmas character and interact with other guests and actors to figure out who killed our favourite plump, red-coated man. Tickets are $45 which gets you a themed cocktail and a craft beer from Moon Dog (so worth it). Oh, and Christmas jumpers are a must.

Where: House of Correction, Level 4, 264 Swanston St, Melbourne
When: Tuesday, 11 December, 8pm—11pm

Spanish Evening At Wine 1160

To celebrate the warm weather arriving in Melbourne (finally), Wine 1160 will be hosting an intimate four-course dinner with eight Spanish wines matched to the dishes. We hear there will be a special pour of the 2010 Roda 1 Reserva on the night too. This is a very intimate dinner (we’re talking 15 guests), so make sure you book your tickets now.

Where: Wine 1160, 1160 High St, Armadale
When: Wednesday, 12 December, 6:30pm

China Love Screening

If you were a fan of Crazy Rich Asians, you won’t want to miss the screening of China Love which follows the real-life crazy rich Asians who compete against each other with incredibly stylised pre-wedding photo shoots that can set them back around $500,000 (yikes). The film explores the cultural significance of these photos as before the Cultural Revolution (around 40 years ago), marriage was arranged by the state and only one black-and-white photo of the married couple was allowed as proof. Definitely not one to miss.  

Where: Village Cinemas, Crown, 8 Whiteman St, Southbank
When: Wednesday 12 December, 6:30pm

Wine Tasting With Shadowfax Wines

Start your weekend off in the best way we know how—free wine, of course. Clock off from that nine to five and bring the gang to the Queen Vic Gardens to taste wine from Shadowfax’s boutique winery in Werribee. Shadowfax do Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Riesling, Shiraz and some single-vineyard varieties, so there’s a little something for everyone.

Where: MPavilion, Queen Victoria Gardens, St Kilda Rd, Melbourne
When: Friday 14 December, 5 pm - 7 pm

Bar Humbug

If you think you’ve made it onto Santa’s naughty list this year (you probably have) then Bar Humbug will welcome you with open arms. Tickets for this Friday’s sessions are still available, with two-hours of Christmas bangers, Christmas cocktails and Insta opportunities galore waiting for you. There’s also a Mistletoe Corner if you fancy bringing a date there (hint hint).

Where: 338 Queensberry St, North Melbourne
When: Friday and Saturdays from 7—22 December
