What's Open for Eats and Drinks in Sydney on New Year's Day
Hit one of these spots for a January 1 filled with good food, top-notch drinks — and maybe a cheeky dance floor session.
December 29, 2021
Despite the public holiday, Sydney's got plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants that are opening their doors to help make your first day of the year a great one. Perhaps you had an especially celebratory New Year's Eve and a swift recovery is at the top of your to-do list. Or, maybe you're just keen to start off 2022 how you wish to continue it — with good mates, a solid soundtrack, and some top-notch eats and drinks.
Either way, outsourcing your January 1 festivities — and the associated cleanup — is always a good idea.
