Celebrating everything that is feminine and decadent about the Spring Racing Carnival, Spring Salon is about dressing up, beautiful millinery, elaborate cocktails and artisanal cakes.

On Sofitel Girls’ Day Out Saintly Place West will be transformed into a pretty and sophisticated lounge, bathed in a dreamy sorbet palette and creamy whiteness.

Sip on elaborate cocktails while viewing the latest designs from some of Melbourne’s best milliners, including Lady of Leisure, Ezara J, Stephanie Spencer, Kim Fletcher, Ann Shoebridge and Morgan and Taylor.

Delight your tastebuds with cheese wheel pasta by Maker & Monger, made-to-order savoury crepes from Crepe Collective, Peter Rowland’s famous chicken sandwiches, Sofitel's signature eclairs, and a rich layered dessert bar by Bibelot.
