As the sun shines so does St Kilda. It’s (finally) summer and our calendar highlights have shifted to embrace the great outdoors. Join us as we slip, slop and slap our way into the New Year. Here’s our list of the best things to do in St Kilda this December.

1. PRINCE PUBLIC BAR OPENING

December

After a long-anticipated refurb, Prince Public Bar reopens its doors this December. Boasting an all-new interior, extended bar and dining areas, our pub returns to fulfil its lifelong duty as local watering hole to St Kilda natives and seaside visitors. The menu, comprised of pub classics with a Prince twist, is bound to surprise while simultaneously scratching an itch left in St Kilda pub culture until now. Exact opening dates will be posted soon.

Keep an eye on and follow the @princepublicbar Instagram for updates.
