Regatta Hotel to Celebrate 2010 Melbourne Cup in Grand Style



Her bars and ornate iron-laced verandas hold memories of almost 130 years of celebratory drinks.. and on Tuesday, November 2 a whole chapter of new memories will be created when the famous Regatta Hotel celebrates the mighty Melbourne Cup with three fanciful events.
So... if you can’t be trackside, be riverside and watch the race that stops the nation at Brisbane’s First Lady of the Brisbane River, The Regatta Hotel...

Racing at The Winterford Room 

All the glamour of a trackside marquee will be recreated riverside in the surrounds of the exclusive Winterford Room for the afternoon. The panoramic views of the Brisbane River and the city skyline will take a back seat to the fully themed room and three-course dining experience (stand up cocktail style) featuring fresh Mooloolaba prawns, grilled snapper and pork medallions, a four-hour beverage package, great prizes, TAB facilities, a big screen plus live MC and entertainment. Priced at $75 per person, this is a sure winner.

A Day at the Races, Regatta Style - Boatshed Restaurant Lunch 

A gorgeously themed three-course seated luncheon will be hosted by Mark Forbes featuring a four-hour beverage package and priced at $120 per person. In his best form yet, head chef Walter Wilson will reap handsome dividends with menu options including fresh seafood platters of Moreton Bay Bugs, Snapper Spring Rolls and Salmon Rillettes for entree; Sirloin Steak served with Truffle Mash, Roasted Field Mushrooms and Veil Jus for the main; and rounding up the pack is a delicious cheese platter including Australian Triple Cream Brie, Tasmanian Blue and Vintage Chedder.

There will be best dressed prizes up for grabs, live coverage of the race, Variety Club QLD sweeps, prizes and full TAB facilities. Bookings are essential on (07) 3871 9533

In the Thick of the Pack - Main Bar 

Bringing with it much of the fashion and flare that will feature at race courses all over the country, the main bar area will be open to the general public and will not require bookings, however patrons are urged to arrive early to find a seat and order from the main bar or street cafe menu to watch the race.
