24th Dec 2015

Christmas is here, people! Finally work has calmed down (we hope) so we have devised a list of things to do in Sydney this silly season so you can finally take a load off. There are summer sessions popping up all around town and we have the hottest of hot tips so you choose the right one. Between the cricket, a boat race and rooftop bars to boot, we are counting down the days. Is it the Christmas Eve yet?

Thursday 24th

Beans + Jazz Homewares Pop Up

If last minute Christmas shopping is your style this year, then Beans + Jazz may have just come to your rescue. Combining marble, copper, glassware and homewares that are a little left of centre, you shouldn’t have any problem picking up the goods for your loved ones. We recommend the carafe for dad and a set of copper and enamel bowls for mum. You’re welcome.

When: December – January 
Where: 155 Edgecliff Road, Woollahra

Christmas Eve Drinks at The Greens North Sydney

Christmas day is undoubtedly family time, but Christmas Eve is all about celebrating the holidays with your mates before any of the formalities and since The Greens North Sydney is partying until midnight, there are no excuses. So grab your friends and head down for some pre-Christmas bevvies with a view over our fair city! Just make sure you give the big man in red enough time to deliver your treats before morning.  

When: 24th December
Where: The Greens, North Sydney

It’s Christmas, you idiot. But here’s what you can do…

The Wayside Chapel Christmas Day Street Party

Don’t fancy slaving over a hot stove on Christmas Day? Luckily, The Wayside Chapel is holding their annual street party in Potts Point so you can celebrate the big day with friends, new and old without any of the kitchen meltdowns. Kicking off bright and early and serving food throughout the day, you can enjoy live entertainment and a special Christmas Church Service. It sounds like a winner to us!

Where: The Wayside Chapel, 29 Hughes Street, Potts Point

Boxing Day By The Bay

After a leisurely Christmas Day, Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel is turning the volume back up with live DJs all afternoon and a beach club party overlooking the harbour this Boxing Day. There are a few packages to choose from, so whether you are happy to simply hang with your mates or want to go the whole hog with lunch and drinks included, you can book tickets here. Treat yo’self. You have earned it.

Sydney To Hobart Yacht Race

Nothing screams Boxing Day louder than the Sydney To Hobart yacht race, right? And if battling the crowds is not your idea of fun, you may want to book your place aboard the James Craig to watch all of the action from the water instead. You will head out in the morning off beyond Sydney Heads and will be front and centre when the race begins. Tickets start at $75 for children and you will be kept well fed throughout the day while you watch a slice of Australian history unfolding.

When: 26th December
Where: Wharf 7, 58 Pirrama Road, Pyrmont

Aperol Spritz Summer Sessions at Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel

Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel is committed to breathing some summer lovin’ vibes back into you after Christmas this year. Their Sunset Sessions will keep you in a constant state of chill with live music and DJ sets. Plus, Aperol Spritzes will cost only $10, so you can afford to have a spritz (or two) without breaking the bank. Double win.

Marco Polo at Ivy Pool Club

Marco Polo at Ivy Pool Club is an institution in Sydney and for good reason. Famous for the dominating crystal clear pool, fresh cocktails freely flowing and the best international and local DJs playing well into the night, tickets are definitely hot property. If you aren’t ready for the party to end once the sun sets, head downstairs to Changeroom to keep the good times going. Booking ahead is essential, so you can pick up your ticket here.
