Forget Flemington. This is the next best F-word: Fantauzzo.

If there’s anywhere to be seen this Melbourne Cup day, it’s here. From the hotel to the rooftop bar with swimming pool, to dining at Polpetta, The Fantauzzo has it going on. As the only hotel and rooftop bar at Howard Smith Wharves, it offers an unparalleled experience.

If you’re new to The Fantauzzo, welcome. It’s an art-deco oasis offering an experience just as special and unique as their rooftop view of Brisbane city.
