Sleigh Christmas this year and pick up your festive provisions at West Village
The presents are wrapped, the beers are being kept frosty in the fridge and the quantity of chocolates inside our advent calendars is dwindling – Christmas is so close we can smell the honey-baked ham. If you need to stock up on some last-minute provisions or you need a break from cooking up a storm in the kitchen, West End dining and retail precinct West Village has got your back with a line-up of eateries and grocers set to send you into Christmas as jolly as the big man himself.
Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year but gosh, it can be exhausting. If you’re struggling to keep your eyes open enough to start glazing roast turkeys or decorating cookies, then we think you should take a break and stroll into West Village. Hungry adventurers eager for a feed can pick up a fresh feast from Cheeky Poké Bar, score a salivation-inducing sashimi platter from Ichiban Sushi or please the whole family with a bevy of burgs from Betty’s Burgers.
Still need some fresh seafood picks or some fruit and veg for your festive feasting? Fill your grocery cart with a top-tier selection of produce and artisanal groceries from Harris Farm Markets. Plus, there’s Woolworths and BWS on site to pick up the essentials (because wine is an essential, right?). If you simply need to get out of the house over the festive period (’tis the season, after all) then most of West Village’s retailers, including Beirut Bazaar, Picnic and Italian Street Kitchen, are trading through to Christmas Eve. Just make sure to check individual retailers’ social media pages for opening hours.
