The Edinburgh Castle Melbourne Cup 2017

Events, Sydney / 5 October 2017

Get ready for Melbourne Cup Day at The Edinburgh Castle.

The Spring Racing Carnival is almost here, and although Sydney may be a little far away from Flemington Racecourse, The Edinburgh Castle, affectionately known as The Eddy, is ready to celebrate! The corner of Pitt Street and Bathurst St will be buzzing with people enjoying the newly refurbished hotel.
The Edinburgh Castle’s Upstairs Lounge is now taking bookings for its exclusive canapés and beverage package happening from 12.30pm to 3pm on the big day.
The canapé menu has drawn inspiration from all corners of the nation. Smoked salmon blinis with chive and creme fraiche, pork and sage sausage rolls, salt and pepper squid and mini Angus beef burgers, are just some of the canapés on offer. In addition, The Edinburgh Castle is serving not one but two complimentary beverages as part of the $65pp.

Don’t worry about leaving to place a bet, staff will be on the floor all day to take your TAB bets as you watch the Cup from one of three large TV screens. Although, the race that stops the nation only lasts for a couple of minutes you can boogie on with the help of The Edinburgh Castle’s DJs after the race.
Located in the heart of the CBD The Edinburgh Castle is where the part will start and finish on Melbourne Cup.
