Go glam for the Regatta Hotel's Melbourne Cup gala!

The grand lady of Brisbane is donning a fascinator this November 3!

The Regatta Hotel is going big for Melbourne Cup, throwing a glamorous gala that’s the perfect occasion to dress up, enjoy delicious food and bevs, and celebrate with friends.

From 12 pm, the exclusive gala event will take over the Regatta’s upstairs function spaces, with a three-hour premium beverage package including Piper Heidsieck and Aperol spritzes (oh, she bougie), and delightful springtime bites including oysters, a prawn cocktail bar (um, wow), and gourmet seasonal appetisers!

If you’re a fan of racing (and not just the eats and drinks that go with the day!), you won’t miss the action with huge screens showing the main event, TAB facilities, and charity sweeps on the cards, too. Even better? After the gala, you can head downstairs to the atmospheric Walrus Club, with your ticket getting you straight into the exclusive after-party.

Tickets to the Regatta’s Melbourne Cup gala are just $130 and strictly limited—purchase yours here before this unmissable event sells out!
