Melbourne Street Feasts
Leave 2021 behind and ring in the new year with good food and wine in one of eight delicious dining precincts.
Following a successful debut year in 2020, Melbourne's citywide al fresco dining festival is returning for another blockbuster New Year's Eve celebration this year. Those looking to leave 2021 behind them and ring in the new year with good food and wine will be able to nab tickets to NYE feasts in one of eight dining precincts as part of the second edition of New Year Street Feasts.
Eight outdoor dining precincts will be created for the festival on December 31, appearing in top culinary spots like Flinders Lane, Russell Place and Little Collins Street, as well as Fed Square and Docklands. The festival brings nearby venues from each precinct together to serve up a jam-packed program of special menus and feasting experiences.
Tickets are available online now and the line-up of restaurants and eateries onboard is set to see in 2022 in the most delicious way possible.
If you're taking it riverside to Fed Square, enjoy a free-flowing, grazing-style feast of Victorian produce from Hero or bring the NYE party vibes with a banquet, drag show and DJ set at Big Esso. Feast at Flinders Lane thanks to a four-course meatball-packed showstopper at The Meatball and Wine Bar, or dig into a signature banquet and more than a few cocktails at Chin Chin.
Making a choice on Little Bourke Street will be the toughest call you face at the end of 2021: there are 11 eateries lined up to put on a show, including Asian-fusion specialists Hochi Mama, Gingerboy and Longrain. We'd recommend starting things off with a dozen oysters at Pearl Diver before moving onto something more substantial.
All in all, 30 restaurants are set to take part so whatever cuisine is up your alley, you'll find it on one of these streets.
