Here’s Where To Dine, Wine And Indulge This Christmas Day

Ho-ho-ho, here’s where to go

By Georgie Murray | 5th December 2019

Guess what, it’s nearly Christmas! Which means it’s a time for family and friends to come together and bond over good times, good food and great people. However, the merriness of the season can sometimes be dampened when some are stuck in the heat of the kitchen, sweltering over the oven, rather than joining in the fun around the table. So, with that in mind, why not treat everyone to a day of ease and delish eats, all without stepping foot into a kitchen! Here’s where to dine, wine and indulge this Christmas Day.

Brisbane Marriott | Brisbane City

A stress-free Christmas? Seems impossible, but the Brisbane Marriott is ready to deliver a Christmas miracle. Offering fully catered breakfast, lunch and dinner on Christmas Day, fit with entertainment for the kids, gifts, delicious food and premium drink packages, your day will be full of good tidings. 
Waking up in the heart of the city at Brisbane Marriott will be a treat within itself. Santa won’t miss a beat and still find where you’ve rested your head overnight on the 24th. They have plenty of deluxe rooms available over the season. The festive vibes are so good, rumour has it that Father Christmas himself will be joining too!

The Terrace at Emporium | South Bank

Tis the season for exquisite celebration at Emporium Hotel South Bank! This summer, you don’t need to be a hotel guest to enjoy Queensland Hospitality Awards Best Boutique Bar of 2019. Across the holiday period, experience an all-day dining menu, exclusive promotions with Mumm Champagne, Brisbane’s best mixologists and bespoke cocktails and hear Zeek Power from The Voice on Sundays. For Christmas Day, join Emporium for a spectacular lunch on The Terrace, and wine and dine away the afternoon with sweeping views of Brisbane City. With a three-hour premium beverage package, including Mumm Grand Cordon Champagne, experience bespoke festively themed cocktails, spirits, international and local craft beers, wine and more. Along with fresh local Australian seafood platters and a traditional Christmas buffet with all the festive favourites (including carvery meats, roast vegetables, salads and more) there will also be a special visit from Santa.

The Westin | Brisbane City
