Christmas's upon us. Yuletide frenzy, rampant. During the rush of it all, easy to neglect one oft-forgotten person - you. Yes, though it may sound selfish, treating yourself doesn't contravene the Christmas Code of Conduct.
Whether a fun-loving free-spirit, parent with some childfree hours, woman/man-about-town, why not carpe diem this Christmas eve. Whether it's a quick drop-in or intimate pre-xmas dinner, here's some reasons State of Grace offers the perfect go-to this Christmas eve.

Well-trained, well-versed staff, State of Grace is renowned for its great service. Bartenders, waiters, management, not only impeccable, but brimming with personality. Courtesy, friendliness, sprightliness I've experienced, endearing them exponentially. I dunno of any venues, anywhere, with 100% positive reviews, but State of Grace - in an obvious state of popularity.
c/o State of Grace
State of Grace's offerings, much the envy of others. Mouth-watering menu with food you can sink your teeth into, and drinks to quench the most sophisticated of palates - this Christmas eve, the fine folk offering $15 gin & ginger cranberry shrub cocktails. Though not a conventional restaurant setting, State of Grace bears a proper dining area. And downstairs (which we'll get to), complete with a grazing menu.
Situated in charming Collins St, the venue's surrounded by an idyllic Christmas backdrop. Pleasant locale, perfect place to indulge. Within walking distance to Crown Casino, plus nearby clubs, also a perfect prelude to an even bigger Christmas eve.
c/o Fall from Grace
Beneath the main area, lurks a secret. Shhhh. Like a medieval castle, or one with buried horcruxes, remove a book from SOG's 'library' bookshelf. Then brace yourself, as you permeate Fall from Grace (finalist of the 2015 Cocktail Bar of the Year for Victoria - Australian Bar Awards). A top-secret hidden den, to tantalise your inner explorer. Complete with plush, hearty decor to infuse Christmas cheer, this's your destination for the yummalicious $15 cocktail.
State of Grace is elegant, yet fun. Staff meticulously professional, yet warm. With its bubbly buoyancy, and spirited quirk, it boasts the perfect atmosphere - for big people.
