Sydney's Best Venues to Celebrate Xmas in 2020

Sydney's Best Venues to Celebrate Xmas in 2020

December 9, 2020 / Tom McParlane

With the year we've had in 2020, we deserve a little celebration. That's why I've compiled a list of wholesome venues around Sydney that are getting into the Christmas spirit this December to bring some cheer to you good folk at home.

Let's jump right down the metaphorical chimney that is this blog and have a peek into the venues I'm about to share with you.

Christmas Festivities

The Clock (Surry Hills)

Solotel has been encouraging Australians to get back to the pub this Christmas with their tongue-in-cheek campaign 'All I Want For Christmas is to Go to the Pub', and they've given us plenty of reason to!

What better way to celebrate the season with The Clock's Festive Feast - a mouth-watering shared menu filled with stuffed turkey, home made sausage rolls, glazed ham sliders and much more.

If you're keen for a drink, they're also doing an $18 Merry Spirtzmas menu for all you cocktail lovers.

Christmas is for the whole family, including everyones favourite, four-legged members of the family!

Get those Kmart dog outfits in order, because The Carrington is hosting some COVID-friendly Santa photos with you and your doggo on Monday 14th December from 6pm!

Stop by for a $6 Happy Hour drink beforehand from 4pm to 6pm, or book in on any Sunday in December for a delicious Christmas Roast!

Quick Brown Fox Eatery (Pyrmont)

There's no better way to celebrate any occasion ever, than with a bottomless brunch.

QBF Eatery are offering up a Christmas Bottomless Package for the silly season for only $50 per person, including unlimited glasses of Gilbert Sauvignon Blanc, Gilbert Rosé, and Inkwell Dub Style GSM.

If you love your cocktails, you can also upgrade for an extra $10 per person to include unlimited wines PLUS a choice of selected cocktails.

Perfect for some weekday drinks, this offer is available Monday to Friday from 8am to 3pm until 24 December. Soak up the Christmas decorations and take a selfie with Santa while you're there! 

The Grounds (Alexandria)

With amazing gift ideas, festive treats and menus, hampers and personalised baubles, there's no reason not to visit The Grounds this Christmas.

Even though Santa photos sold out super quick (damn you COVID), there's a lot to see and do at The Grounds, even if you don't book a spectacular high tea or dinner at The Potting Shed.

There's a lot happening over at The Grounds this Christmas - visit their website here to see what they've got on!
