The 22 Best Places To Celebrate Melbourne Cup Day 2021

Dust off your heels and pour the bubbles

The day that stops the nation… There isn’t a more controversial date in our calendars. Whether you’re into punting or not, we could all do with a boozy Tuesday afternoon, but most importantly support the hospitality industry and our favourite restaurants.

Melbourne Cup will be a chance for us to put on our race day best and dust off those heels we haven’t seen in months. Celebrating well on November 2nd is all about the people you celebrate with and the venue you choose. Whilst we can’t help you with your guest list, we do, however, have your location covered.

If you’re looking for a long lunch at one of Sydney’s finest, a shared banquet feast for you and your workmates or a casual all-you-can-eat taco with bottomless Margaritas, you bet you’ll find something that suits to celebrate from our top picks below. Be sure to book soon, as seats will fill up fast.
