The Melbourne Cup is nearly upon us, with free-flowing champers, workplace sweeps, and women wearing ostentatious hats. And that’s just in New Zealand! Imagine the palpable excitement in Melbourne as Tuesday 1st November nears and appropriate outfits are debated by both sexes while work stops for the day.

Yet there’s no need to hop over the ditch when you can enjoy the best seat in the city at Bellini Bar. The glamour of one of the richest two-mile handicap horse races in the world will be transported to the city of sails with the TAB and Mumm Champagne as Official Partners for this event.

Frock up and rock up (with your reserved spot of course) to Bellini Bar on 1st November. This locale’s creativity and style, infused with its spectacular harbour views and five-star service is THE place where you’ll want to celebrate this prestigious race.

Allow yourself and a loved one/friend to be virtually tele-transported to Flemington for the day, with canapés and a glass of signature Mumm Cordon Rogue. And of course you’ll have the chance for a flutter on a win.

Commonly billed as the race that stops a nation, it’s actually more accurately the race that stops two nations, as the Melbourne Cup is now firmly implanted in Kiwi culture.

Spaces are limited, so make sure you’re first out of the gates! Book now for this select experience filled with fashion, fun and fascinators.
