Fillies, frock up and stallions, suit up for the social event of the year, yes, it’s Melbourne Cup, baby! Hedge your bets for a thrilling race day experience and book a seat at the two-hatted Room81 for a lavish Melbourne Cup luncheon at Sofitel in Broadbeach. Whether you’re there for the horses, the fashion or the fanciful fare (or all three), you’ll have the winning trifecta with a glass of champagne on arrival plus a four-course lunch accompanied by a three-hour premium beverage package.
Treat your tastebuds to a taste of kangaroo prosciutto before moving on to an entree of kingfish sashimi and a main of Ranger’s Valley brisket with textures of mushroom, leek, potato and truffle. Bring your fine feast to a fitting conclusion with a green apple, eucalyptus, lemon, mint and almond dessert. Not a fan of meat? There is a vegetarian option available that includes an entree of heirloom tomato with avocado, native pesto, capsicum and mozzarella alongside a main of smoked potato with textures of mushroom, leek, artichoke and truffle.
There will be live entertainment throughout the afternoon including a live stream of all the action from Flemington as well as sweepstakes and of course, fabulous fashion. Tickets are $155 per person and seating is in shared tables of 10 guests.
