Make your Melbourne Cup day experience extra special with a long lunch, Champagne, and the race on the big screen at Coogee Bay Hotel. While the race is stopping the nation you could be enjoying all that this beachside fave has to offer on November 6, with the entire venue celebrating the Cup with pop-up bars and exciting packages.
Go all the way luxe and secure a table for you and your friends in the Brasserie with a VIP package. Entitling you to a three-course meal and a glass of Piper-Heidsieck Champagne, the package is perfect for groups to feast during the excitement of the race. For $120pp you can enjoy a seafood cocktail entree packed with kingfish ceviche, marinated squid, poached king prawns, pipis, iceberg lettuce, tomato and horseradish emulsion; a delicious main of herb-crusted rack of lamb or pan-fried barramundi; and a chocolate fudge brownie sundae for dessert. There's also a vegetarian menu option with an avocado and heirloom tomato salad entree; a hearty main serve of pea risotto with mint, toasted pine nuts, rocket, and olive oil; and the same decadent brownie dessert.
Entry to the Melbourne Cup day extravaganza at Coogee Bay Hotel is free and you can join in on the action in the Garden (where there'll be a mega screen to watch the race) with pop-up bars, live music, DJs, and over 25 screens showing the race throughout the venue. So whether you're keen for a bite while you bet or unwinding with a cocktail by the sea post-race this is the spot for you.
