What's Open on the Southside This Christmas Day?

Christmas Day is a time for relaxation with loved ones, whether you celebrate the festive season or not. If you’re after an afternoon activity, morning coffee or tasty feed, C&G have found these handy businesses that are opening on December 25 this year to bring you everything you need.

Coffee on Christmas Day

Christmas Day is like any other day where coffee lovers are concerned! And luckily, some southside favourites are keeping their doors wide open for your morning fix. St Ali in South Melbourne, Ned’s Bake in South Yarra and Nude Duck in Carnegie will be brewing up fresh beans until mid-afternoon. Problem solved!

Food on Christmas Day

If you’ve forgotten some last minute essentials for the family feast, you some service stations and 7-Eleven stores will be open to put out your catering fires! For a more substantial feed, St Kilda’s Newmarket Hotel, Albert Park’s The Point, and Middle Brighton Baths have you covered. 

Movies on Christmas Day

If you fancy catching a movie on Christmas Day, Elsternwick’s Classic Cinema is open, as are some branches of Hoyts and Village Cinemas.
