From 11am, Gerard’s Bistro, Bar and surrounding laneways in James Street will transform to ‘Wonderland Avenue’ where you can indulge in the mid-century cool of Palm Springs and glow beneath the swaying palms. Five hours of fresh seafood, cured meats, delectable canapés and a selection of Gerard’s Bistro favourites will be available for munching, and G.H. Mumm Champagne, premium beer, wine, spirits and refreshing cocktails will wash it all down. Your senses will be truly delighted at this Cali haven!

Live entertainment and DJs will keep you busy when you’re not watching the race on large screens and the number one horse won’t be the only winner of the day, because there will be Fashions Off The Field, prizes and charity race day sweeps. A Gerard’s bash always brings in the masses, so make sure to book here to not miss out on any of the splendour and fun!
