New Year’s Eve (and Recovery Brunch After) at Half Acre

Sat 2nd January, 2021 – Sun 3rd January, 2021
Price: $225 for NYE, $69 for brunch
Settle in to the glasshouse or cosy courtyard at one of Melbourne's prettiest restaurants to ring in the New Year – then recover from the party with brunch and spritzes.

Let's face it – 2020 was horrible. The folks at pretty South Melbourne spot Half Acre are saying goodbye to this year (and crossing their fingers for the next) with five hours of booze and bites on New Year's Eve.

Options for the six-course degustation menu includes torched scallops with sumac salt; oysters with finger lime; butterflied scampi with caviar; grilled lobster with black garlic butter; confit duck leg; and charred pear with wattleseed and tahini caramel. There's also going to be live music and a champagne tower at midnight.

Tickets are $225 per person for six courses with matched wines, with the session running from 7:30pm to 12:30am. Or you can get the degustation and champagne on arrival for $125 (with other drinks available on consumption).

Half Acre is also throwing a recovery bottomless brunch with Patient Wolf spritzes, more live music and its signature brunch menu. It costs $69 per person and runs for two-hour seatings:
January 2: 11am–1pm
January 3: 10:30am–12:30pm, 1pm–3pm, 3:30pm–5:30pm
