Dine, drink and be merry – Portside Wharf is full of feasts and festive fun this Christmas
The trees are up, the lights are twinkling and advent calendar chocolate is getting quickly devoured every morning – the most wonderful time of the year is here! So you can immerse yourself in the festive vibes, riverside dining and shopping destination Portside Wharf has got a smorgasbord of merry events – from Christmas Day feasts and live entertainment to special giveaways and even a few super-cute angels roaming around.
Arguably the best part of Christmas time is the food (particularly, the large amounts of it), and Portside Wharf has plenty of culinary goodness on the cards so you don’t have to act like a turkey in the kitchen this December. For those wanting to indulge in a Christmas feast with all of the trimmings (without the hassle of cooking), look no further than Belvedere Bar n Grill, where you can devour a tantalising festive feast. Diners can expect all of the Christmas classics, such as roasted turkey with a sage and chestnut stuffing, pan-fried salmon, slow-cooked vegetables and a walnut pudding with brandy sauce. Those who want to take their tastebuds on a journey can head to Gusto da Gianni this Christmas Day for an Italian-inspired merry meal. The crew will be serving up a four-course lunch any Nonna would be proud of – think fresh seafood bites, homemade ravioli with burrata and traditional panettone pudding with cinnamon gelato.
In the three weekends leading up to Santa’s arrival, Portside Wharf will be spreading the Christmas cheer far and wide with live carols performed by acoustic singers, who will be joined by the centre’s resident pianists and roving angels. You’ll be able to listen to all of your favourite sing-along classics whilst shopping up a storm and stopping by the waterfront for a refreshing sip (or two). Grab a tipple and some tapas from Byblos Bar, some Japanese fare and a yuzu cocktail from Sono or tuck in to a charcuterie board and glass of wine from @Mr & Mrs Jones.
Now that your belly is full and you’ve got your carol fix, it’s time to start collecting gifts to go under the Christmas tree. To help you out, Portside Wharf is igniting the Christmas spirit with a special festive giveaway –from December 1–14, shoppers have the chance to win one of two Christmas Indulgence Packages (valued at $1000 each!) that showcase all of the goodness that the riverside precinct has to offer.
