Experience the races in true style in this sell-out precinct

In the heart of the action

A space for those seeking a stylish & lively Christmas party entertainment option, Cuvée is one of the most coveted areas on course.

Including gourmet food, this is an effortlessly easy entertaining option for groups of clients, colleagues or friends.

You’ll enjoy the best of an indoor-outdoor flow in this contemporary & modern space, located right in the heart of the day’s entertainment.

Get up close to the horses as they parade before you in the neighbouring birdcage before being swept up in the roar of the crowd as they flash past the winning post directly opposite.

Uninterrupted views of the super screen also ensure you’ll not miss a second of the races for you to be distracted by.

Cuvée sells out well in advance of the day, so we recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.
