While some of us are planning a massive NYE to celebrate the end of this insane year, and the promise of a fresh start in 2021, some of us are all about January 1st, whether its finding the perfect hangover brunch, celebrating the new year in style, or catching up with friends.
Here’s a quick handy guide to what’s on, and what’s open for those looking for some fun in 2021.
There’s so much to love about Port Adelaide café and corner store The Banksia Tree, not least of which is their bold announcement that January 1 will be renamed ‘Bloody Mary Day’ this year. Priced at a very reasonable $30, which gets you one Bloody Mary and a fresh lobster roll from the Banksia Tree’s well-repped kitchen, the event will kick-off at 9am and continue until 2pm – perfect for those looking to make a day of it, or just continue the fun from the previous night!
Come spend New Year’s Day enjoying SA’s best food, wine and cocktails out on the lawns at the National Wine Centre. DJs will be playing disco and house vibes along with live vocalist and percussionist from 2pm – 9pm.
Previously held on a rooftop bar, the popularity of this annual gig has forced a move to the even more flash National Wine Centre on the corner of Botanic and Hackney Road.
The perfect setting to kick up your heels and feel all your favourite house and disco tunes deep in your soul, the event features a Tasting Plate from the awesome Wine Centre chefs and a complimentary beverage on arrival.
Set out on the lawn at the wine centre, there will be throw rugs to spread out on as you take in live vocal and percussive sets between DJs.
To get your ticket check out the Wines & Good Times New Years DAY Get Together Facebook Event page now.
UPDATE: Wines & Good Times have now sold out of food packages and now only have a limited amount of $50 + free drink tickets left. Venue has a fully stocked bar, gourmet foods and the option to buy full bottles of wines and champagnes.
Big night New Years Eve plans? Suburban Brew have got your recovery sorted! They’ll be open from midday till 6pm to ease you into 2021. Sam will be on the decks for the day, spinning disks so come on down, the beers will be pouring, the tunes will singing and lets get 2021 kicked off in style!
This list isn’t exhaustive, but should give you some easy options if you’re just looking to find what’s open, and where you can grab an easy meal or quiet bevvy on January 1st.
