As the rolling back of COVID-19 restrictions and the holiday season converge, you may be looking for your fix of food, drink and Christmas cheer. QV Melbourne's new festive courtyard serves up all three. The Christmas Hub, which was launched over the weekend, features a pop-up garden bar, al fresco dining and a massive 15-metre-tall Christmas tree.

CBD rooftop bar Father's Office has taken charge of the pop-up bar, which is serving up bottles of GH Mumm for $65, pink gin and soda, beer and cider. Cocktails will also be flowing, with watermelon daiquiris, margaritas and espresso martinis among the offerings. To eat, there's noodle soup from Thai Town, Gippsland yoghurt from Mumuyo and build-your-own ramen from Mr Teriyaki.

Each Friday and Saturday from 11am–2pm and 4–7pm you can catch interactive festive entertainment in the form of stilt walkers, acrobats and 'roller bauble' performers.

The centre's Christmas Hub is free to visit and open until Christmas Eve, while the pop-up bar will be open throughout summer. All-day parking is available for $20 or you can nab a free spot around the CBD under the City of Melbourne's extended free parking plan.

The Christmas Hub is located on Level 2 of QV Melbourne at the corner of Swanston and Lonsdale streets. Father's Office is open from 3–10pm Monday–Thursday and 1–11pm Friday-Sunday.
