Who doesn't love being treated like a VIP? No matter your reason, getting to enjoy the finer things in life is always a treat. With an exclusive menu planned, Coogee Bay Hotel is giving you an excuse to treat yourself to its VIP lunch as it celebrates the Melbourne Cup Day on Tuesday, November 5.
Get ready to relax with a glass of bubbly in hand and enjoy the views of Coogee Beach as you settle in for three courses of top nosh. To start off, you'll tuck into an entree of manuka smoked monkfish or lamb shoulder and pistachio terrine. Following on, you can expect a choice of stuffed chicken or beef and smoked eggplant. If you're vego or vegan, Coogee Bay has got you sorted, too. For a starter, you can request smoked eggplant zucchini boats, then tuck into a main of truffled porcini mushroom risotto-stuffed tomato with (even more) veggies. To round out the meal, indulge your sweet tooth with some Corsican mousse and almond wafers.
Once you've worked your way through lunch, you can head out into the Garden and enjoy the rest of the festivities. You can take part in 'fashions on the field' by donning your showiest outfit and celebrate all things spring. Or, if fashion isn't really your thing, there'll be live music all day, so you can bust out some moves or settle back and enjoy the tunes.
While entry to the Garden — and the other festivities — is free, you'll need to nab your ticket for lunch here. At $120 a head, it's the perfect excuse to bring a date or plan the next big get together.
