Where to eat and drink at White Night

Keep yourself energised to make it past dawn at these recharge stations

If you're in it for the long haul, there's only one way to do White Night. The all-night arts festival stretching from the Arts Centre to Carlton Gardens starts at 7pm on February 18 until 7am on February 19, so you want to at least last until dawn, you'll need to keep yourself well fed and hydrated. Good thing there are more than 40 bars and restaurants open around the Melbourne CBD during White Night to do the job, with 32 of these venues licensed to serve you a tipple with your midnight snack.
