The first couple weeks of the year are strange: most of us have a fair bit of time off, but so do our favourite venues.

Thankfully, a few places are staying open to make sure that 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.
