Make a great impression with your guests in this premium indoor dining location, boasting a delicious menu featuring a fine array of New Zealand produce and unrivalled racecourse views.

An odds-on Melbourne Cup Day favourite, you’ll never miss a moment of the day’s entertainment with floor-to-ceiling glass frontages bringing exceptional views of the action directly to your table. 

A fantastic shared precinct for business networking, seats are limited and this lounge will sell out.

 

And if you’re looking for a little more detail, you can simply revert to your table’s flat screen TV to watch the racing up close.

The menu for the day has been specially designed by award-winning Executive Chef Steve Barton who relies on the bounty of seasonal Kiwi produce, often incorporating produce grown sustainably onsite.
