While Flemington Racecourse may seem like a million miles away on any normal day, this Melbourne Cup Day we’re going to bring all of the glitz and glamour of the world’s premier thoroughbred horse race to MàZi Restaurant at Lantern Club. ‘The Race That Stops The Nation’ is a mix of fashion, food and entertainment, not to mention the world-class horse racing on offer, and we don’t want you to miss a second of the action.

There’s more to our Melbourne Cup Day celebrations than the food

While the Melbourne Cup lunch menu is extraordinary, there are plenty of reasons why you should spend the first Tuesday in November at Lantern Club.
What’s a Melbourne Cup Day without the glamorous dresses and sharp suits, and there will be fantastic prizes for our best-dressed guests on the day. If you miss out there, we have sweeps, a horse auction and lucky door prizes as well, so there’s a good chance you won’t be going home empty-handed. There will also be live entertainment from Cath & Him throughout the day!
And of course there’s a live broadcast of the big event on several screens throughout the day; after all we don’t want you to miss out on the big race!
