For a Melbourne Cup event that is a little more elegant, Saké on Eagle Street Pier is hosting a mouth-watering Japanese banquet that will have you dreaming of cherry blossoms and the streets of Kyoto.

The 6-course banquet will commemorate the spectacular day in style, starting with a glass of bubbly Veuve Clicquot. As you settle in to watch the action live from Flemington racetrack, you’ll be invited to indulge in a 6-course banquet menu of contemporary Japanese dining.

With a special menu including the likes of fresh scallops, wagyu beef, and bugtail katsu, this extra special degustation experience will have you and your fellow diners delighting in the tastes of Japan. At $139pp, the standard package includes that all-too-important glass of Veuve Clicquot as well. However, if you’re after a livelier celebration, why not add on a 2-hour beverage package for only $79? With prizes on offer for best dressed, make sure you break out your best fascinator or fanciest tie!

The contagious excitement and electric atmosphere that accompanies the Melbourne Cup races will make for an unforgettable experience as you indulge yourself. This contemporary Japanese haven is testing the limits of traditional dishes, pairing the usual ingredients with a new mix of flavours. Let the chefs that create this dynamic culinary experience make this year’s Melbourne Cup the best yet! With countless awards, hats and accreditations, you’re guaranteed for an unbeatable experience.
