Melbourne Cup Comes to Rockpool

Tue 5th November, 2019
Multiple venues
Price: $79 - $129
An array of race day offerings will light up some of Australia’s best restaurants.

The Melbourne Cup might only be on for one brief moment in the afternoon of the first Tuesday in November, but it’s become a national signifier for much more than a race. Namely – an occasion to pause and celebrate with friends over fine food and drink.

On November 5, the Rockpool Dining Group is celebrating this moment with a suite of race day specials at their many venues across the country.

At the award-winning contemporary Japanese restaurant Saké Restaurant and Bar located at The Rocks, you can feast on a seven-course banquet menu with a glass of Veuve Clicquot ($129 per person). An optional two-hour beverage package – including Veuve Clicquot, Cloudy Bay sauvignon blanc and pinot noir, and Sapporo beer – is available for an additional $89 per person.

At both Saké’s Double Bay and Manly locations, a six-course Japanese banquet menu and glass of Veuve Clicquot will be available for $129 per person (the optional two-hour beverage package for $89pp is also available).

At Rosetta Trattoria, the group’s seafood-leaning Italian marquee venue in Sydney’s CBD, you can enjoy race day with a three-course menu and glass of Moët & Chandon Brut Impérial for $110 per person. And nearby at the opulent, green-marbled Rockpool Bar and Grill, there’s a three-course lunch menu with a glass of Ruinart champagne for $150 per person – or you can opt for dishes from the extensive à la carte menu.

Throughout all seven Fratelli Fresh locations across Sydney, guests can feast on a four-course share-style menu featuring Italian favourites of antipasti, pasta, salads, plus a three-hour beverage package for $79 per person.

There are more race-day specials available at a range of Rockpool venues across the country – more details and bookings here.
