This year

The Bird Bath Bar will make its debut in The Birdcage this year, offering VRC members the chance to enjoy a drink and people watch, without a need for a marquee invitation.

Time to dip your toes in the Bird Bath Bar

This year's Birdcage enclosure will be a VRC members oasis, with the return of the greatest party within the greatest party, 1 Oliver St and the introduction of the Palm Springs inspired Bird Bath Bar.

1 Oliver St returns to The Birdcage for a second year promising even more fabulous fun set inside the splendour of Lady Helena Cavesson-Brown's mansion, a fictitious character who has a tradition of throwing fabulous and extravagant parties at her home.

Each year, a new room of the mansion is unveiled and Lady Helena is already teasing guests with hints of the exotic and quirky.

The Bird Bath Bar will make its debut in The Birdcage this year, offering VRC members the chance to enjoy a drink and people watch, without a need for a marquee invitation.

The Bird Bath Bar takes inspiration from the poolside glamour of the iconic mid-century designs of Palm Springs, and will be a celebration of bright colour and geometric patterns.

The main design feature is a one-of-a-kind "bird bath", a sculptural masterpiece which draws inspiration from birds in flight.

The Bird Bath Bar has been designed as the perfect place for VRC Members to perch for a refreshing drink and enjoy incredible people-watching in between races. The offering includes a range of bespoke cocktails, champagne, premium beers and wines, as well as the famous Peter Rowland chicken sandwiches.

Guests of the Bird Bath Bar can also expect acoustic performances to start the day, followed by DJs to dance through the afternoon.

Tickets for 1 Oliver St are sold out on AAMI Victoria Derby Day and Kennedy Oaks Day. Tickets are selling fast on Lexus Melbourne Cup Day and Seppelt Wines Stakes Day.

No reservation is needed for the Bird Bath Bar, VRC members can drop in at any stage over the Melbourne Cup Carnival but must have a valid VRC Membership card to be granted access.
