This time of year is strange: most of us have a fair bit of time off, but so do our favourite venues.

Thankfully, quite a few places are staying open to make sure you get out of the house. Some are old favourites; others are some of the best new spots in town. They’re all worth a visit – use this break as an excuse to finally get to that spot across town you’ve been meaning to visit.

Note: we’ve been as diligent as possible with the information on this page, which was confirmed in writing from each venue in the week prior to Christmas. But the Omicron situation is changing almost daily. We strongly advise you call ahead to make sure that the place you plan to visit is open on the day.
