Suit up, don the frock and fascinator at Gowings Bar & Grill this Melbourne Cup

Posted on: 12 October 2015

Melbourne Cup festivities are nearly upon us, outrageous fascinators and all – and to celebrate, QT Sydney’s acclaimed restaurant, Gowings Bar & Grill, is getting into the spring racing spirit offering a Melbourne Cup lunch menu designed to delight the palate.

Join us in celebrating with a delicious three – course menu designed by QT Hotels Creative Food Director, Robert Marchetti and QT Sydney Executive Chef Paul Easson, and raise your glass of G.H. Mumm to toast “the race that stops a nation”.

You won’t miss any of the race day action on November 3 with two large screens broadcasting the Flemington race live, betting options and Lucky-door and Best-dressed prizes – we’re backing QT Sydney this year as the winner for lunch on Melbourne Cup day!

And for those wanting to kick on well into the night, the after party in Gilt Lounge, located on the second level of Gowings Bar & Grill starts from 3pm, with a Sabrage demonstration by Danielle Bietola. With tunes spinning well into the night, a desirable cocktail menu featuring new and old classics, and champagne flowing, the party is sure to attract Sydney’s elite party crowd.

Having been included in the prestigious US Hotels Magazine ‘2014 Top Hotel Restaurants’, Gowings Bar & Grill is the perfect venue to entertain this festive season. The European-style brasserie menu has a strong focus on wood -fired meats, crustacean and seafood on rotisserie, treating guests to an unrivalled dining experience, matched with a bold and stylish interior. Offering the freshest produce from Australia’s best artisan providores, and a specially curated wine list, Gowings Bar & Grill is the place to be this Melbourne Cup.
