Spring is as good an excuse as any to don some fancy threads and get out into the sunshine. And if there's one day that Aussies do both in droves, it's Melbourne Cup Day. If you and your mates or colleagues are looking for somewhere to spend the big day, Cruise Bar definitely has its perks. For starters, it's situated right on the water at Circular Quay, making it the perfect escape from the confines of the office and endless emails.
And, because Melbourne Cup Day is about more than just a race on television, the bar's also got a pretty sweet afternoon of entertainment lined up. For $89 per person, you will receive a glass of Veuve Clicquot on arrival, three hours of roaming canapes and access to a fully stocked station of Australian oysters.
Live music from an acoustic trio and giveaways throughout the afternoon will keep spirits high and then, after 3pm, a DJ will take over for all your dancing needs. What better excuse is there to step away from the desk chair and enjoy the Sydney sunshine?
