The presents are under the tree ready to go. The ham is taking up all of the space in the fridge. Michael Buble’s Christmas album is locked and loaded. Do you really want to worry about coffee after all of that?

We’re in the southern hemisphere – that means no snow or woolly jumpers. But it also means that we get to make whatever we want of Christmas. Maybe that means brunch then a swim, maybe it’s a glass (or two) of wine at a bar in the city. Maybe Christmas isn’t even your thing, and you just need to know where to go when most of your favourite spots are closed.

Here’s who’ll be staying open on the 25th.
